Sport Parade t | Sees Another Year For T«d ; But Stan's "Goals" Reached By OSCAR f RALEY NEW YORK (UPl)-Ted Williams will play again in I960 and Stan Musial will call it a career, intimates of the two famous sluggers are betting today. Neither man has made a final decision, according to those close to them. But the theory is that Williams' unfulfilled batting ambitions will drive him Into one more campaign while Musial's aims have been accomplished and he won't stick around to be a mediocre has-been. "I'd bet almost anything," said one who knows Williams well, "that Ted will play at least one more season." One more would give him—in all probability—the two marks he now desires above all others. The first is moving into third place ahead of the late Mel Ott on th' roster ol all-time home run hitters. The second is taking sole possession of fifth place in the all-time averages. Injuries Shackle Williams Williams has been shackled this season by a long series of frustrating injuries. As of the moment, it has dropped his all-time average from .349 to 3.345 because of a season in which he currently is *! hitting a painful .239. Ted feels that he still is a far better hitter than that and must believe that one final good year at bat would move him up again just as rapidly as he fell. That's reason number one to give one more try. The second is even more compelling. Williams at the moment has a lifetime total of 492 homo runs even though he has struck only 10 this season. One more will tie f him with Lou Gehrig for fourth place on the all-time list and leave him only seven short of the "500 club."

Not that the, U.S. wasn't doing all right in the championship department—it had won 58 of the 75 gold medals decided so far, but percentagewise, Thursday was the worst day in that 'department because the U.S. picked up only 12 of the 19 contested. Those seven were the could step up with a time of 1:12.4. U.S. boxers won three of five gold medals awarded in boxing, and narrowly missed a fourth when featherweight Charles lost the other 23 competing nations from the Western Hemisphere had won in one day, but the U .S. still was far out in front of runners-up Argentina and Mexico, each with four. Equals Record Of Thursday's gold medals, the U.S. won four of them in swimming, sweeping all events. Today it was expected to win five more. Of the 21 gold, silver and bronze medals in swimming thus far the U.S. had won 20 — losing only one third place bronze medal ion.

Baseball Not Included In Exemptions j WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. ; Kenneth B. Keating (R-N .Y.) to- j clay denounced a bill to exempt professional football, basketball and hockey from the anti- - trust laws as "completely inadequate" because it did not include baseball. Keating, sponsor of a rival bill which would cover all four sports, warned in a statement that "I do not intend to stand by while baseball is shortchanged in this way." j Ho said he would offer an 'amendment to add baseball to the three-sport bill approved Thursday by the Senate anti-trust and monopoly subcommittee, and thus ; eliminate, what he called a "scri- | ions flaw." . The bill now goes to the Sen- fate .Judiciary Committee. Subcom- jinittee Chairman Estes Kefauver ;(D-Tenn.) voiced hope for swift | committee approval so the Senate I could act before adjournment. The bill then would have to be passed by the House and signed by the President to become law. Hurry , . . Hurry, Only 1 Day Left during Tire$fone W I ADAD I>AV CA LABOR DAY SALE FREE WHAT A BUY!
