Spahn Seems To Get Better All The Time By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer Poor old Warren Spahn. He ain't what he used to be. He's better. Wondrous Warren, who turned 42 last Tuesday, pitched Milwaukee into third place in the National League Sunday as the Braves swept the three-game series from the San Francisco Giants, 3-1. It was Spahn's fourth victory against one defeat and it was an epic one. It marked the first time in Spahn's illustrious major league career, dating back to 1942, that he registered four victories in the month of April. Elsewhere in the league—the St. Louis Cardinals whipped the Dodgers 9-5 for their seventh consecutive victory at Los Angeles; Pittsburgh, topping the standings by four percentage points over the Cards, won its fourth straight with a 3-2 decision over the New York Mets; Chicago's surprising Cubs rallied for four runs in the eighth to defeat Philadelphia 4-1, and the Houston Colts snapped a ninth-inning tie to nip the Cincinnati Reds 3-2. Spahn lost his bie for lifetime shutout No. 57 when the Giants scored in the ninth but he gained career victory No. 331 as he turned in his fourth complete game of the campaign. Bitter Pill Among The Gold For U.S. In Pan Am Games By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP)—The powerful United States team wasn't gloating Monday over its rich harvest of 61 gold medals in the Pan-American Games—it was griping over the one that got away. "Fast gun," U.S. track officials complained after their ace sprinter, Ira Murchison of Chicago, was beaten by Cuba's Enrique Figuerola, in the 100-meter dash. It was obviously a bitter pill to swallow coining on the heels of two baseball defeats at the hands of the Cuban team. Figuerola was off like a shot and won the 100 meters, long a U.S. specialty, in the good time of 10.3 seconds. Murchison finished third, back of Arquimides Herera of Venezuela. The Yanks have won seven gold medas in 12 track and field finals, collecting four championships Sunday. They also completed a sweep of the swimming pool, winning all 116 men's and womens' swimming events and three of the four diving competitions. In wimming, they set games records in all but one event—the women's 400-meter medley relay. They added four gold medals in owing and two in shooting, won nother baseball game, beating Venezuela 4-1; crushed Peru in mens' basketball 104-56; beat le in womens' basketball 57-37; won over Chile 3-1 in mens' olleyball and scored victories in the Star and Flying Dutchman classes in the yachting competition.

Pott, who had shot the identical ecore for three rounds as Rodgers—66-71-66—was a stroke behind as he came into 17. Rodgers, the blond belter from San Diego, already had finished with a 6-under-par 65 for 268—a record for the 6,775-yard Oak Hills Country Club course. Pott was back on the fringe with his second shot on the par 4 hole. He chipped barely past the hole, then missed a 3-foot putt and took a bogey. So all he could do to even tie for the lead was shoot a hole-in-one on 18. He took a par there. Saturday. Here are individual scores.

"I knew as soon as I saw the track I wasn't going to run any four-minute mile," Dyrol Burleson said Saturday after he won the invitational race in 4 minutes 5.4 seconds. The rain also resulted in a disappointing performance by Fred Hansen of Rice, who has cleared more than 16 feet in the pole vault. Hansen cleared 15 feet 7 inches for a Drake record but he was not close in three tries at 16-1. Four other Drake records were bettered, but it was the come- from-behind runs of little Tom O'Hara of Loyola of Chicago which captured the fancy of sportswriters covering the meet. The 130-pound junior received 21 of the 23 votes cast for the outstanding athlete after he anchored two Loyola relay teams to victory. O'Hara turned a 20-yard deficit into an 8-yard victory in the college two-mile relay Saturday with an 880-yard leg of 1:51.7, and Friday erased a 50-yard deficit to give Loyola victory over Texas Southern in the college distance medley.
