DETROIT-(P)-The Washing-
ton Senators pushed over three
runs in the 16th inning to whip
the last place Detroit Tigers, 5 to
2, yesterday and even the series
at a game apiece.-.
Pinchhitter Cliff Mapes' homer
had tied it at 2-all for the Tigers
in the ninth.
EDDIE YOST walked to open
the 16th, took second on Jackie
Jensen's single and came home on
Pete Runnels' took second on the
throw to the infield. Mickey Ver-
non then singled to right, scoring
both Jensen and Runnels.
Pitcher Frank Shea, a cast-
off of the New York Yankees,
emerged as the kingpin for the
Senators in the three hour and
21-minute marathon. He wasn't
credited with his tenth victory,
however, nor was he charged
with his third defeat.
Shea pitched spectacularly for
14 innings. He should have won
by a 2-1 score in regulation time.
But a costly Washington error
gave the Tigers a 'un and Mapes'

pinchhit home run gave them
another to send the contest into
overtime.
* *~ *
SHEA FINALLY tired and was
replaced by Sandy Consuegra who
became a four-time winner at the
expense of reliefer Dick Littlefield.
Veteran Hal Newhouser started
for the Tigers and gave up only
three singles until the seventh. But
in that frame he was tagged for
doubles by Runnels, 'Jerry Snyder
and Shea, good for two runs.
* * *
AFTER HAL pitched a hitless
eighth, the Tigers broke through
on Shea, helped by an error.
Johnny Pesky for Newhouser
and singled. Johnny Groth, who
observed his 26th birthday by
making a handful of spectacu-
lar catches and three hits in his
last three trips to the plate was
safe on Snyder's bobble.
A bunt advanced both men but
only Pesky could score to make it
2-1. Mapes' homer then came in
the ninth with one out.

HELSINKI, (P)-Cy Young and
Bill Miller scored an amazing one-
two victory for the United States
in the javelin yesterday and Andy
Stanfield led an American slam
of the 200 meters but Russia
maintained its total point lead
over the star spangled forces aft-
er the fourth day of the Olympic
Games.
For the first time, the United
States temporarily surged ahead
of Russia in the unofficial battle
for team honors as Uncle Sam's
boys continued to dominate the
track and field competition. But
the Soviet athletes came right
back to pile up big totals in wom-
en's gymnastics and wrestling.
* * *
AT THE END of the day the
score was Russia 266/, United
States 202.
In track and field and rowing
yesterday, the U.S. outscored
Russia 61 to 35% but the So-
viet had a 34-26 margin in free
style wrestling and picked up
602 points in the women's gym-
nastics, in which the Americans
were shut out.
America continued its domina-
tion of the Olympic eight oar row-
ing event as Navy's undefeated
crew beat Russia by a length and
a half.

ADHEMAR FERREIRA Da Sil-
va of Brazil and Shirley Strickland
of Australia smashed world rec-
ords in track and field as five new
Olympic marks were set and two
tied.

Da Silva, 16.22 meters (53 feet
2.59 inches) exceeding his own
world record of 16.01 meters (52
feet 5.93 inches)
* * *
WOMEN'S 80-meter hurdles -
S h i r 1 e y Strickland, Australia,
:10.8, breaking, world record 11
second 11 seconds by Fanny
Blankers-Koen of Holland in 1948
and Olympic record of 11.2 by
Mrs. Blankers-Koen in 1948.
Javelin throw; Cy Young,
United States, 242 feet, 0.79 in-
ches. Former Olympic record
238 feet 7 inches by Matti Jar-
vinen of Finland in 1932.
3,000 meter steeplechase-Hor-
ace Ashenfelter, United States,
8:51.0, former Olympic record,
9:03.8 by Volmari Iso-Hollo, Fin-
land, made in 1948.
* * *
WOMEN'S broad jump-Yvette
Williams, New Zealand, 6.24 me
ters (20 feet 5.66 inches). Former
Olympic record, 5.68 meters (18
feet 8.02 inches) by Olga Gyar-
matisof Hungary in 1948.
110 meter hurdles-Harrison
Dillard, United States, :13.9,
tying Olympic record set by Bill
Porter of the United States in
1948.
200 meter dash - Stanfield,
:20.'7, tying Olympic record set by
Jesse Owens in 1936.
* * *
IN ALL, three world records
have been bettered and 12 Olympic
records have been broken and
three tied at the half way mark
in track and field competition.
In men's track and field-the
games' blue ribbon sport-the
United States has won ten out of
13 finals with 11 more to be
decided. At London in 1948
Americans won 11 gold medals.
These games could become the
greatest American triumph since
the present Olympic program
was established-but Russia has
shown an all-around power that
has amazed everyone.
The result of the javelin came
as a shock to the Finns, and a
surprise to the Americans. The
home team had even hoped for a
slam,. But Bill Miller, on his first
toss, whipped the spear out 72.46
meters (237 feet 8.82 inches) and
Young, on his second, broke the
record.
The field kept shooting at those
two white markers withthedbig
numbers on them, set far down
the bright green turf, but no one
dislodged the Americans.
D ill a r d ' s and Ashenfelter's
marks were both made in trial
heats, and while Dillard's per-
formance came as no surprise, ev-
eryone was talking about the way
Ashenfelter, an F.B.I. man who
once competed for Penn State, ran
away from Mikhail Saltykov of
Soviet Russia-a rather unusual
thing for an F.B.I. man.

Russ, Yanks
Top Games
HELSINKI-(R)-The battle for
the unofficial Olympic title re-
mained a two-country affair with

the United States.

DID YOU KNOW: that the Uni-
versity of Michigan withdrew from
the Western Conference on Janu-
ary 14, 1908, in protest against
certain retroactive provisions of
Conference enactments? One such
rule would have forced the Uni-
versity to fire Fielding H. Yost,
her great ftball coach, because
he was not graduate of a Big
Ten school. Michigan did not re-
turn to the conference until 1917.
