For Record Jump
HELSINKI, July 17 lUl—Square-
jawed Bob Richards, the pole-vault-
ing person from California, said
Thursday he expected to break the
Olympic record next week in what
will be his farewell outdoor ap-
pearance, but that he did not be-
lieve he would reach 15 feet.
"Conditions line mese preclude a
15-foot vault," said the man who
has cleared that height 24 times as
he pointed to a rutty runway and
squinted his eyes against a whist-
ling Finnish wind. "That's why this
will be the last time I'll ever jump
The powerful 2G-year-old who was
ordained five years ago and now
teaches four courses in philosophy
at Laverne College, in California,
insisted that "from now on it's noth-
ing but indoor jumping for me."
But, he added, in his farewell
performance under the sun he felt
confident he couTd raise the Olym-
pic standard of 14 feet, three in-
ches by at least a half foot.

The dry spot was San Antonio,
where the Tulsa Oilers came from

Oklahoma Cily and Houston got

Yanks To Win Pennant

liams' single and A1 Dark's dou-
Connie Kyan hit a homer and
three singles as the Phils sent the
Pirates down to their fifth straight
defeat. Robin Roberts (hough tag-

•CW YORK, July 17 (IP)—Casey
Stengel, boss of baseball's big
muscle monopoly, wasn't exactly
advising Yankee fans to apply for
world series tickets, but he some-
how arrived Thursday at the odd
conclusion that they'll win their
fourth pennant by nine games.
What's more, he set the figure
before the Yankees went out and
drubbed the Indians, 8 to 7 in 10
innings and 7 to 4, and once again
took full command in the Ameri-
ct'J'League race by \xh games.
The Indians, their hopes high
after a stirring opening triumph in
their five game "doom or des- /^\| I • i.A 4-,-.,.' *-+•

^Nine Game Lead Expected
V.engel, without explanation, de-
cided that the nine game margin
at the finish "should be about
right for us the way we're going."
And he might be under-estimat-
ing his boys a little at that.
The Yankees whizzed from be-
hind tu tie up Wednesday's opener
at 7-7 on Yogi Berra's 20th hom-
er which increased his American
League lead in that department.
Then they won it in the 10th when
Hank Bauer, hitless in the regula-

NEWPORT, R. I., July 17 (IP)—
Robert L. Dring, believed to be the
nation's oldest motorist, ob-served
his 101st birthday Thurs-
day and said he would do away
with fast cars and all motorcycles.
"They should make cars so they
can't get over 40 miles an hour
and the young folks wouldn't have
so many accidents," said Diing,
who got his driver's license in 1910
and never has had an accident
