She's Irena Kirszenstein Newest Track Hero $ i Runs Like The Wind ?r NEW YORK (AP) — She is tall and skinny, a string-bean. Looking at her, you think she Is all arms and legs. She Is quite pleasant, with a warm smile. But her face Is gaunt, sharp-featured. she has an exceptionally large nose. And she wouldn't turn a head If she took a stroll up Fifth Avenue. ; In her native Poland, however, .she Is AnnMargaret, Bri. gltte Bardot and Lynda Bird all rolled into one. She is a national heroine. By the tens of thousands, they stand and applaud her. They swarm her for autographs. They sing songs of her achievements. She is Irena Kirszensteln, Poland's queen of the women sprinters — 20-year-old University of Warsaw student, daughter jf an Interior decorator. When Irena runs, all of Poland goes into a wild tizzy, often records crumble but Irena remains unchanged—quiet, modest, retiring. Miss Klrszenstein will be the featured personality when the Polish men's and women's track teams come to the United States this summer for a meet against the United states' best at Berkeley, Calif., July 16-17 under the sponsorship of the San Francisco Examiner and News-call Bulletin. Stripped down to a track suit, Irena suddenly changes—as if by a nick of a Cinderella fairy's wand—from a gangling, gawky girl to 5 feet, 10 inches of poetry In motion. She runs like a gazelle, with long, sure strides, she never Defense Cites Justification As Its Main Theme MILWAUKEE, Wls. (AP) — Baseball's defense against anti. trust charges brought by the State of Wisconsin appears to be based on three salient points of contention. The National League and Its members claim that: 1. The move of the Braves to Atlanta was necessary and fully justified. 2. Expansion at this time Is unfeasible. 3. There was no conspiracy or agreement to abandon MUwau. kef as a big league^ty. f"*tMnrv*loJWW rt aflfT cUims will-be differed mainly in the form of depositions taken before the trial from National League-officials, club owners and officials of the Braves. The testimony will be offered in ab. sentla. Defense attorneys say the executives fear further law suits if they visit Milwaukee in connection with the trial. Big Man Confronts Williams HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — Mel Tujcnbow of Paterson, N.J., the 225-pounder with an 85-inch reach, tries to thwart Cleveland Williams' second comeback try tonight in one of two scheduled lO.round bouts. Williams, who knocked out Ben Black of Chicago here last month in his first fight since late 1964, takes a 62.4.1 record and an 83-inch arm span into the fight. Turnbow has only an 11.3 record but has the distinction of twice knocking down both Floyd Patterson and Cassius Clay in workouts. Heavyweights Jeff Davis of Houston and Rick Harris of Phoenix, Ariz., will fight in the other 10.round match. Williams, 33, of Houston, could get a rough going over from his opponent. reportedly were still to tv The pattern of the defense became apparent Monday — the 17th day of the trial before Circuit Judge Elmer Roller. Depositions previously taken from National League President Warren Giles, Los Angeles Dodgers' President Walter F. O'. Malley and New York Mets' Board Chairman W. Donald Grant were read into the record via the question-and-answer method. O'Malley's testimony, cover, ing two days of questioning, was scarcely u half completed when 4our* 'liadjoumetft- Monday.^ At least'half a dozen other depbsl. tlons come. Giles and O» Malley cited much the same reasons for their approval of the Braves' transfer to Atlanta. They mentioned gradually decreasing Mllwau. kee attendance, the advent of the Minnesota Twins into big league ball with Its consequent shrinking of the Braves' area of fan Interest and the radlo.TV market, trouble over the stadium lease and the alleged deterioration of Braves' relations with local politicians and the press. The witnesses stated emphatically that there was no agree, ment to boycott Milwaukee as a big league city as the state con. tends. explodes—the motion would be too harsh. She just glides, and wins. On successive evenings last August, she ran away from two of America's Olympic champi- ons—Wyomla Tyus in the 100 meters and Edith McGuire in the 200 meters. She also spear. headed victory in the relay and won the women's broad jump. Thirty thousand Poles stood in their seats, some of them with tears running down their cheecks, and serenaded her with songs reserved for special occa- slons of the heart. When she dressed and walked on Warsaw streets, traffic stopped. People stopped to look at her In awe. Small children rushed up to touch her. Many clamored for her autograph. Antisemetic Poles found It convenient to forget that she is Jewish. Last year Irena tied the world women's record for the 100 meters with a clocking of 11.1 and she bettered the 200-meter mark with 22.7. She starred in the relay. She beat Britain's Olympic champion and world record, holder, Mary Rand, In the broad jump. Americans are inclined to pay homage to movie and television personalities. They are certain to find a heroine in Irena Klrszenstein, the girl who runs like the wind.

(AP) — In a golf crowd, Bert Weaver blends in so well he often goes unnoticed outside of his home club at Broadwater Beach, Miss. He's neat but not flashy; talks in a straightforward but not loquacious manner; stands 5-foot- 11; weighs 185; sun-tanned; looks like he belongs on a golf course.
