PAN-AMERICAN GAMES—At week's end, with a record field of 3,000 competitors from 28 nations, the results were very much as expected in Winnipeg, Man. (page 20). U.S. athletes gained 66 gold, 36 silver and 25 bronze medals with still another week of competition remaining and widening hopes of surpassing their 1963 Games total of 109 first-place wins. On land, U.S. teams were leading in every event but baseball, cycling, weight lifting and field hockey. The men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams moved into the final rounds, while the wrestlers completed a clean sweep of eight finals and the gymnastics squads won 10 out of a possible 14 gold medals, with Linda Jo Methany placing first in five events and third overall. The shooting team set a world record in the English rifle-match competition with 2,379 points.

In the newly built $2.7 million Pan-American Pool, the Yanks drowned their rivals with six world records and more than twice as many gold medals, as California's 14-year-old DEBBIE MEYER of Sacramento scored a double, with world marks in the 400-and 800-meter freestyles (4:32.6, 9:22.9). MARK SPITZ, 17, of Santa Clara, Calif. won the 200-meter butterfly (2:06.4); KEN WALSH, 22, of East Lansing, Mich. the 100-meter freestyle (52.6); DON SCHOLLANDER, 21, of Saratoga, Calif. the 200-meter freestyle (1:56); and, CLAUDIA KOLB, 17, of Santa Clara, Calif. the 200-meter individual medley (2:26.1). Canada's 16-year-old ELAINE TANNER was the other double winner, providing her country (now second in swimming competition) with two world records—in the 100-and 200-meter backstrokes (1:07.3 and 2:24.5).

CHICAGO (102) beat Baltimore 3-1 before its largest home-game crowd (7,243) and moved ahead of LOS ANGELES (101), which had two losses, and TORONTO (92) clung to last place in spite of a 6-1 victory over the Toros.
