Giants Beat Cubs;
Yanks Top Orioles

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO (A)-- Willie Mays
broke out of a lengthy slump yes-
terday with three hits, including
his first homer in more than a
month, to lead the San Francisco
Giants to a 6.4 victory over the
Chicago Cubs behind the effective
relief pitching of Paul Giel.
The triumph ended a six-game
losing streak for the second-place
Giants who only last Tuesday
were in first place In the National
League but now trail the Milwau-
kee Braves by 4% games.
Mays' homer, his 17th, gave him
his first RBI in 18 games. It was
his first homer since July 2 and
that also was hit at Wrigley Field
off Cub pitcher Dick Drott.

Touring U.S. Trac T"eam
Meet in Budapest Tonight

As an official stepped off the,
putt at 60 feet, the slim 27-year-
old San Francisco pro said "but
I'd like to step off that putt my-1
self - I think it must have been,
70 feet."
That lengthy carpet tap was a
real pressure putt. Boros, who fin-
ished ahead of Venturi, was eighta
under par throug 68 holes. Former
U.S. Open Champ Boros knew
Venturi was seven under going
into the 67th green.
By sinking the 60-footer, Ven-
turi went nine under, knowing
Boros had finished seven under.'
After that, Burke was Venturi's
big problem. Venturi, who shot
earlier rounds ',of 65-67-68,1
matched par three on the 200-yard.
71st hole with what Burke de-
scribed as "fantastic play."
Venturi salvaged his par by
chipping in from high grass to
within 2 feet.

BUDAPEST (W) - America's
touring track team, g r o w in g
"edgy" from travel, a tight sched-
ule and tough competition, workedl
out briefly and last night relaxed'
and waltzed by the grey Danube.'
Third Meet
The team meets a group of
Hungarians and Czechoslovakians
today and Wednesday in the 100,-
000-seat Nepstadioh in the third'
of four meets on a European tour.
MacKay Wins
Tennis Match

bledon Champion Althea Gibson
of New York, Eastern winner in
1956, swept past Mrs. Baba Lewis

Cooper, just off the hard courts
of the European circuit, had some
trouble getting his game adjusted
to the grass. Once he found the
range, however, he overpowered
his American opponent.
Savitt's Service Strong
The American top-seed, Dick
Savitt of South Orange crushed
William Hoogs Jr., of Berkeley,
Calif., 6-1, 6-1. Savitt's big service
and powerful overheads proved to
be a quick undoing for the Cali-

Busy Night
"The team has made fast jumps
from Moscow to Warsaw and
some of the members are getting
edgy," Assistant Coach Payton
Jordan said. "We have a busy
night coming up today against a
new team and the coaches are
pleased everyone has been in such
good humor.
"Tonight, we did away with the
schedule - eat when you like,
work out informally, go dancing
on the terrace under the stars and
listen to sweet music.
"That'll relax 'em."
No Team Score
There will be no team score of
any kind in Budapest-unlike the
tension-filled meet in Moscow
eight days ago and the more re-
laxed but - ruggedly competitive
meet at Warsaw last weekend.

Tokyo Stadium Planned

NEW YORK W) - What city
will be the first to build an all-
weather baseball stadium? New
York? Cleveland, Los Angeles?
No. It is Tokyo.
That's the word from George S.
Mizota, prominent fishery execu-
tive and sports enthusiast.
"Plans for a new Tokyo stadium.
already have been made," Mizota
said. "It will be a tremendous
thing. It will seat 70,000 and will
have a glass dome. You could play
a game in a snow storm if you
The Tokyo visitor said the
project is being financed by Mat-
sutaro Shoriki, president of the
Yomiuri newspaper, owner of the
Tokyo Giants baseball team and
the man generally regarded, as the
father of baseball in Japan.
"When it came time to plan
the dome," said Mizota, who
learned his impeccable English at
Stanford, "architects sought to
find out how high would be the
hoghest home run.
"So a survey was made of Amer
ican home runs, those of Mickey
Mantle, Babe Ruth and others. Fi-
nally it was decided that the

mightiest home run was that one
of more than 500 feet which Babe
Ruth hit in an exhibition game at
Tampa, Fla.
"It was decided the dome should
rise 70 meters or around 230 feet.
No man should be able to hit that
high a roof with a home run. But
if he should - if some superman
should come along and do it -
then a local rule would have to

World Record Shattered
At British Track Meet


LONDON (R)-One world record
was surpassed and two were
* threatened yesterday as the men's
and women's track and field teams
representing the British Empire
pand commonwealth defeated the
mother country, Britain, in a two-
kday dual meet.
The men, paced by South Afri-
ca's Gert Potgieter and Austra-
lia's Herb Elliott, won 199-162.
The empire women won 891/2-83%/.
For the third time in two weeks,
Potgieter surpassed the listed
world record for the 440-yard hur-
dles, but his time of 50.4 seconds
was somewhat slower than his
record-smashing 49.7 in the Em-
pire Games two weeks ago.
It was Elliott, a 20-year-old
youth who has run the mile under
four minutes seven times, who
turned in the day's most amazing
performance. Before 45,000 spec-
tators at White City Stadium, El-
liott ran the third-fastest half mile
ever recorded-1:47.3-for an easy
Two hours later he turned up at
a meet in Watford, about 20 miles
from London, and won another
half mile race in 1:50.7.
Elliott's time at White City has
been surpassed only by America's

Tom Courtney, with a world record
of 1:46.8 and another American,
Don Bowden, with 1:47.2. The
swift Australian yesterday looked
as if he could have beaten those
Another world's third-best per-
formance was made in the two-
mile run by Peter Clark of Eng-
land. He was timed in 8:37.6 as
he won by nearly 100 yards from
Gordon Pirie. Three years ago
Hungary's Sandor Iharos set a
world record of 8:33.4 on the same
track and Ken Wood of England
ran second in 8:34.8. Those are the
only times faster than Clark's.
