Baseball: The Dodgers caught
toe Reds in toe National League
pennant race and the Yankees
overtook toe Tigers, leaving js
two dandy duels to be settled
through August and September.
Roger Maris and Mickey Man-
tle of toe Yankees launched a
serious attack on Babe Ruth’s
single season home run record
of 60 and rocketed well ahead of
toe Babe’s pace heading into the
last two months. Maris hit an
even dozen in July for a total
of 40. Mickey hit 14 for a sea-
son’s collection of 39. Commis-
sioner Ford Frick ruled they’ll
set an official record only if
90 la topped in 154 games. Oar-
rent schedule calls for 162-game
season but that edict doesn’t j
spoil the fun to come.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. UPI -
Mrs. Susie Fithian said she was
frightened when she heard a
man’s voice in her bedroom
immediately after a bolt of
lightning struck near her house.
"Maybe you won’t believe
this,” she said in a tetter
Thursday to the Jacksonville
Journal. The lightning, she said,
had turned on her radio which
she had not been using because
it needed new tubes.
