BOSTON-The New York Yank-
ees snapped a six-game losing
streak, their worst slump since
1953, by edging the Boston Red
Sox, 4-3, last night behind the
effective relief hurling of south-
paw Tommie Byrne.
Byrne, a 35-year-old veteran, re-
tired the last seven batters in a
row to preserve the victory for
young Ralph Terry in his major
league debut.

balled his way to his first major
league shutout last night, blanking
the Cleveland Indians, 9-0, on five
hits in what started out as a pitch-

The Tigers exploded for seven
runs against reliefers Art Houtte-
man and Bob Feller in the eighth
inning before Cal McLish was able]
to subdue them.

Thurston
Si ns Pact
With Tigers
DETROIT-Bill Thurston, out-
fielder-pitcher for Michigan's
baseball squad for the past two
years, has signed a minor league
contract with the Charleston club
of the American Association.
Charleston is the top minor
league team in the Detroit Tigers'
farm system.
The Wolverines thus lose one of
their star players. The 20-year-old
Thurston had a year of eligibility
remaining at Michigan where he
is listed as a senior for the 1956-57
school year.
Thurston was scouted by Don
Lund and signed by scout George
Moriarty. The Tiger talent-
hunters were interested in the
6'1" 170-lb. diamondman primar-
ily as an outfielder because of his
impressive hitting ability.
A left-handed batter, Thurston
compiled a .384 batting average
in 26 games for Michigan during
the 1956 season. He also clouted
three home runs. As a right-
handed pitcher, he had a 3-1 rec-
ord with a 2.57 earned run aver-
age.
Thurston's 1955 Wolverine rec-
ord was .340 at the plate and 4-2
on the mound.
He will report immediately to
the Tigers' Augusta farm club
of the Sally League from Yankton,
S. D. where he has been playing in
a summer college league.

Much talk, but little concrete
action marked the Big Ten's spec-
ial meeting this past weekend in
Chicago to study the conduct of
intercollegiate athletics within the
Conference.
Scheduled over two months ago,
the meeting heard the report of
a four-man committee onathletic
practices. Practically the entire
Saturday session was devoted to
discussing the committee report,
but no law-making was attempted.
Instead, it was decided to permit
the committee-composed of Ath-
letic Directors H. O. "Fritz" Crisler
of Michigan and Ivy.Williamson of
Wisconsin and faculty represen-
tatives Verne C. Freeman of Pur-
due and Leslie Scott of Michigan
State-to draft legislation to be
voted on at the December meeting
of the Big Ten,
Much Accomplished
Although the meeting was main-
ly confined to discussion, Crisler
did feel that much was accomp-
lished in "clearing the air" fol-
lowing the recent wave of accusa-
tions against Big Ten schools be-
gun in a Look Magazine article.
Michigan's faculty representa-
tives Prof. Marcus Plant intimated
that new rules concerning fin-
ancial aid to athlets will stem from
the special committee's report.
Plant said, "There was strong
sentiment among the delegates in
favor of having financial aid to
athletes determined on the basis
of need."
A subsidiary of the Educational
Testing Service is being considered
to investigate the needs of athletes
so that they will receive just that
amount and no more,

If such legislation does come at'
the December meeting, it will allow
a practice that had been going on
at Michigan forhsome time. Until
then, however, the Wolverines and
other schools have been ordered
not to interpret Section Three of
the present code as permitting aid
solely on the basis of need.
Investigate Michigan
The Conference eligibility com-
mittee looked into the matter of
whether Michigan had violated
rules in giving aid to star football
end Ron Kramer.
While stating that Michigan had
misinterpreted the regulations by
not considering academic status
in granting the aid, the committee
felt there was no reason to punish
the school or Kramer because there
was "sufficient ambiguity" in the
present code.
New legislation at the December
Sailing Club
Wins Regatta
Michigan's Sailing Club won the
Summer Open Regatta at Base
Line Lake Saturday by compiling
a total of 51 points in 10 dinghy
races.
Five schools participated in the
regatta which was open to any
collegiate sailing clubs interested.
Cincinnati finished second to
Michigan, only six points behind.
Purdue followed with 35 points for
its day's efforts. Michigan State
was fourth with 291/2 and Wayne
finished last with a 27 total.
Altogether Michigon won three
of the 10 races with skipper Doug
McClennan leading the crew to
two victories. Tomas Johnstone
guided the other triumph. The re-
maining four skippers - Frank
Reed, Emil Nicolaysen, Bruce Wal-
lace and Dave Weigel - all man-
aged to finish at least third in
their races.

meeting is expected to standar-
dize aid to athletes in all schools
in the Big Ten. Competition for
athletes would be eliminated be-
tween schools and any athlete
would get the same amount of aid
from whatever school in the Con-
ference that he decided to attend.

NEW YORK (A') - In " spring
training this season Charlie
Grimm, then manager of the Mil-
waukee Braves, declared that Hank
Aaron definitely was a threat to
win the National League batting
title. Aaron has made Grimm's
prophesy look good.
The 22-year-old outfielder, in
only his third season with the
Braves, has turned the batting
race into a runaway by opening
up a 19-point gap over Stan Musial
of St. Louis, a six-time winner and
regarded by many as "the player
to beat."
Aaron tops the National circuit
with a .344 average. Musial is

fielder is the batting leader with a
.368 average; is tops in home runs

in department with 93.
Last week Mantle swatted five
