A roundup of the week's news
August 29, 1954

RECORD BREAKERS

•Donald Healey, 56-year-old English auto designer, drove streamlined, supercharged Austin-Healey of his own design to world record for sports cars, then added five American and four International marks for class D cars over Bonneville Flats of Utah. Healey's world record: 192.62 mph for a measured mile.

•In other Bonneville speed runs, Captain George E. Y. Eyston, 57, also of Great Britain, drove his streamlined and souped-up MG to 17 American and International Class F records, including average of 120.87 mph over a 12-hour stretch.

•Ken Miles of Los Angeles, who drove three-hour relief shifts for Captain Eyston, set world record of his own by pushing production-model MG at average speed of 153.69 mph over ten-mile course, raising old mark by 18.36 mph.

•Pronto Don, owned by Hayes Fair Acre Stable of Du Quoin, Ill., trotted 1 1/16 miles in 2:10 1/5 at Roosevelt Raceway to break own world record by l/5 second. Winner's purse of $7,500 increased his lifetime earnings to $314,173.96, a record for trotters and only $4,618.60 short of Good Time's record for all harness classes.

•Jack Crossfield, 20, of Golden Gate Casting Club, set new world trout fly-casting records with single cast of 194 ft. and three-cast average of 186 1/3 ft. during national championships at Long Beach, Calif.

•Audun Boysen of Norway, whose 1,000-meter running record of 2:20.4 set last September was not recognized by International Amateur Athletic Union, ran a better one—2:19.5—at Gavle, Sweden. Old official record: 2:20.8, by Mal Whitfield of U.S.

•Motoshi Kimura, 16, of Japan, beat world breast-stroke record by 6/10 seconds with a winning time of 1:10.6 during an international meet in Osaka.

•Warren Witherell of Bolton Landing, N.Y., broke world water-ski jumping record with leap of 106 feet at Spofford, N.H.

HORSE RACING

DANCER RETIRED—Alfred Vanderbilt's Native Dancer was permanently retired after workout in which he showed recurrent lameness. The great gray, winner of 21 of his 22 races, will go to stud next year at Vanderbilt's Sagamore Farm in Maryland.

BARGAINS—Joseph Gavegnano's three-year-old Errard King, who was bought for $7,600
as a yearling, won American Derby and $68,900 at Washington Park, Chicago. In beating High Gun, winner of Belmont Stakes, and Hasty Road, winner of Preakness, he raised track earnings to $317,575.

•George S. Howell's Punkin Vine, whose owner picked him up for $750 because a trainer decided "they haven't written a race cheap enough for him to win," won $35,025 Ventnor Handicap at Atlantic City, has now returned $61,680 to his owner.

SARATOGA UPSETS—Alfred Vanderbilt's Social Outcast, only entry for his stable after Native Dancer was withdrawn two days before the race, upset C. V. Whitney's Fisherman by a convincing 3½ lengths in mile-and-a-quarter Whitney Stakes at Saratoga.

•The Whitney stables, which have been winning everything in sight at Saratoga, had another defeat when Pyrenees, their much-talked-about two-year-old, was beaten by Belair Stud's Nashua in Grand Union Hotel Stakes for juveniles.

HARNESS RACING—J. S. Turner's pacer, Adios Boy, racing with a quarter crack in right front hoof, broke stride but recovered in time to beat half brother, Adios Harry, by a length in Yonkers Derby. Time for one-mile race: 2:01 2/5, a track record for three-year-olds.

BASEBALL

THE LEADERS—The New York Yankees, always hard to beat in final third of season, ran up 10-game winning streak before they were stopped by Boston Red Sox. For once, it wasn't enough. Cleveland Indians put together streak of their own (nine straight), then added another three while Yankees dropped two more to Boston. The standings at week's end: Cleveland in first place, 5½ games ahead of New York.

In National League, New York Giants pulled themselves together after disastrous series with second-place Brooklyn Dodgers,
won six straight and climbed back to comfortable 4-game first place margin.

PROS—Stan Musial of St. Louis Cardinals made his annual rush at National League batting title. With 12 hits in 23 times at bat, he closed in on Brooklyn's Duke Snider, stood bare point away from the leadership Dodger outfielder has held since June 12.

•Orestes Minoso of Chicago White Sox went after American League pitchers with same gusto and achieved virtually same result. After 12 hits in seven games, he was only one point away from the leader, Irv Noren of Yankees.

JUNIOR PROS—Andy Wasil, 15, pitched Stamford, Conn., team to its third straight Babe Ruth League (boys 13-15) title in Washington, D.C., with a 2-0 shutout over Jackson, Tenn. It was fourth personal triumph for Wasil, pitcher in past two Babe Ruth Series, and hero of the Stamford Little League victory in 1951.

FOOTBALL

OUT—Curly Lambeau, head coach of the professional Washington Redskins, was replaced by his line coach Joe Kuharich after a sharp argument with Washington owner George Preston Marshall.

AUTO RACING

ONE-TWO—Juan Manuel Fangio, Argentina's world-champion racing driver, took his Mercedes into lead in first lap of Swiss Grand Prix, held it to the end of 66-lap grind at Bern. Second by less than lap in
his Ferrari: Jose Froilan Gonzales, Fangio's
countryman and perennial Grand Prix rival.

BOXING
TITLE MATTERS—Bobo Olson, unabashed by surprise knockdown in 11th round, successfully defended middleweight championship with 15-round decision over Rocky Castellani of Cleveland at the Cow Palace in San Francisco.

•Leo Espinosa of the Philippines knocked out Jake Tuli, South Africa, in ninth round of scheduled 10-round flyweight elimination at Manila. The knockout qualified Espinosa for match with Tanny Campo, also of the Philippines, winner to meet Champion Yoshio Shirai for title this December.

NIGHT'S WORK—Willie Pep, 31, former world featherweight champion, won unanimous 10-round decision over Til LeBlanc at Moncton, New Brunswick. It was 185th victory in 195-bout career for Pep, who first held title in 1942.

BICYCLE RACING

NEW HONORS—Louison Bobet, twice winner of 25-day Tour de France, added world professional road-racing championship by outsprinting Fritz Schaer of Switzerland by 55 yards after a rain-soaked 150-mile grind around Solingen, Germany. Winning time: 4:27.17.

•Day before, Emile Van Cauter of Belgium, who could do no better than eighth last year, averaged 21.3 mph over a 93.2-mile course to take world amateur title. Runner-up: Hans Andersen of Denmark.

SAILING

REPEATER—Runyon Colie of Mantoloking, N.J. Yacht Club, took first and third on final day at Baltimore to wrap up his sixth International Penguin class championship in six tries. Runner-up in five-race series: Billy Seemans, 14, of New Orleans.

TENNIS

BACK HOME—The U.S. Davis Cup team of Vic Seixas and Tony Trabert beat their rivals from Australia—Ken Rosewall and Lew Hoad—3-6, 6-4, 8-6, 6-3 in the finals of the National Doubles tournament at Brookline, Mass. It was the first victory for a U.S. pair in the National Men's Doubles since 1948.

•Shirley Fry of Akron, Ohio, and Doris Hart of Coral Gables, Fla., won their fourth consecutive women's title by straight-setting (6-4, 6-4) Louise Brough of Beverly Hills, Calif., and Margaret DuPont of Wilmington, Del

SWIMMING

FOR SPORTS SAKE—Joaquim Baptista Pereira of Portugal, guzzling port as he swam, won English Channel race by covering 21 miles from Cape Gris Nez, France to Folkestone, England in 12 hours 25 minutes. Eight of 14 other entrants failed to finish.

HOCKEY

SWITCH—Sid Abel 36-year-oid National Hockey League veteran, was replaced as coach of the last-place Chicago Black Hawks by Frank Eddolls, 33, coach last year of the champion Buffalo Bisons of the American Hockey League.

RIFLERY

SITUATION NORMAL—Marine 1st Lt. Clifford Tyron of San Diego won the match title and Chief Warrant Officer T. R. Carpenter of Encinitas, Calif., another Marine, won the service rifle division of the National High-Power Rifle championships at Camp Perry, Ohio. Their identical scores—628 out of a possible 650 points—kept the championships in the Marine Corps for the third consecutive year.

GOLF

FAST FINISHERS—Doug Ford of Kiamesha Lake, N.Y. shot 18-under-par 270 to win the Ft. Wayne Open. Runner-up with a 62 in final round: Mike Souchak of Durham. N.C.
