POLK Associated Press Writer MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee, spurned by its one-lime .sweetheart, has gone to court with a .suicide squeeze against baseball an antitrust suit challenging the Braves' 1906 move to Atlanta. The suit amounts to a do-or- to keep major league in the city that once embraced the Braves with record crowds in a love affair which paled alter only 12 years. Baseball Commissioner Ford troit native praise for Coach Vince he " had nothing the Packers Lombard!, lie every minute but; and said ' of Kelley Visits Detroit Track Bay career which two NFL champion- the Given saw him on ship it-rims. * * * "Hut right now. I'm iookmij. forwa r ci to many good seasons here with the Lions and with Harry Gilmer." Gilmer, Detroit head vnach. also faces his first season with the club. It was Gilmer who announced that Kramer had signed a one year contract, and it was Gilmer wbo disclosed that the longtime offensive end would start trainniL 1 . today on defense.

Rumors that Kramer wanird to return to the Motor City have persis'ed since his eo!!<':',e graduation in 1957. when he was reported considering an oiler from the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association Kramer was the Pistons' fourth draft choice that year. The ii-foot-3 Kramer won three of his 'line U-M letters as a basketball center. The Lions, who gave the Packers their No. 1 draft choice for next winter as compensation for K'vmer. declined to reveal dctai's of Kramer's paet. LIKES RIDING AT Bit. A NEW YORK i APi Jo c k ev Mike Carrozella says it's easier to ride at Aqueduct than anywhere else. "Morses here are more consistent and not as sore as in New England or M a r.viand." says the 22-year-old jock ey. "And, of course, riding is much cleaner. "There are a lot of older riders here but I can do 109 pounds easy. A lot of riders can't. It gets me more stakes horses. Before long, I've got. to come up and beat a big horse." DETROIT (AP)-Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley paid a visit to the Detroit Race Course Tuesday to cheek on twin-double violations and he missed Bernie Weiss by ::•! iec! :r: track policemen es- j gaged coiled Weiss to the gate. Weiss was identified in a recent Detroit Free Press article as one of the winners of Michii-,.n's second-largest twin. The Free Press said Weiss and ii iiarlner took more than $600,- Ooo in twin money from Hazel Park Race Track by buying tickets in violation of the rules. Illegal purchase double tickets is thr tv'llry's investigation. ; The attorney general gathered some first hand experience with the controversial twin. He bought, a $12 twin ticket, and bet a tilly named, not surprisingly, Kelly Jeanne. Kelly Jeanne didn't, place. Kelley's probe followed a series of Free Press articles, which alleged that some persons, in violation of track regu- : lations. buy tickets from other: bettors after completion of two 1 of the four races which fake up the twin. The I.iRC opened its meeting Moiuiai 1 and p-i.v.od signs warning that such purchases are improper ar.d ilia! persons buying or selling twin tickets, except iron; pan mi.ituel machine:- 1 , would be ejected. Kelley said his investigation is beine held to determine whether the twin double is a lottery and whether reculations concerning it can be enforced. "I'm satisfied from what I've :,'-en today that the twin is being properly policed." Kelley said. "We have every indication from the track that they are doing their utmost to make sure it is properly handled. We plan no further action at this time." DRC President Dale Shaffer said he promised Kelley to drop the twin-double it State Racing Commission rules could not be entorced. He added he was com 1 meed they could be. Tuesday's twin paid $692.20. There were !!() winners. Kelley wasn't one of them. Neither was Bernie Weiss. Prick as much as said the Separation would be final if the suit failed. Frick and National League President Warren Giles both offered unruffled reactions to the suit. But an executive of one club said, "it embarrasses all o" baseball." Milwaukee County filed the suit Tuesday in U.S. District Court. It demanded the National League either block the Braves' migration to Georgia or grant Milwaukee a new franchise. Frick said icily if the city wanted to keep baseball, "it's the world's worst way of going about it." Baseball, a 19th century child of the cow pastures who grew up to become a millionaire many times over, has long anchored its claim that it is a sport, not a business, on a 1922 U.S. Supreme Court decision. Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.. in a case involving the old Federal League, held at that time baseball was neither an interstate operation nor en- in commerce. In 1953, the another Four Davis Team NEW YORK (AP; -- l» Ralston, Prank Froehlini>. thur Ashe and Clark Graebnrr will represent the United states in the Davis Cup inter-zone finals against Spain late.) this month in Barcelona.

"We rely on speed to stay competitive." The man who best symbolizes the Dodgers' speed is, of course. Maury Wills. Almost daily, the switch-hitting shortstop either coaxes a walk or scratches a hit, steals second ancl third ancl scores the key run aller tin- catch of a pop fly in shallow left, right or center field. For f>H but about a dozen days of the baseball .season, now nearly two-thirds over, the Dodgers have held first place in the National League with pitch-and-putt style of play involving' around the pitching oi Sandy' Koufax and Don Drys- clale <md the putt- putt-putting of the mercury-footed Wills. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Wills probably has contributed more than anyone else to the team's cause. First, he plays in just about every game and reaches base at an unmatched rate. He currently leads the Dodgers in hits,- runs scored and baiting average i But it is his breath-taking ex- ploits on the basepaths that have captivated baseball fans throughout the National League. At an age when he should be slowing lip, the 32-year-old Wills appears to be faster and more daring than ever before. "For some reason, the urge to run is greater in me than ever this year." said the lithe son of a Baptist preacher. "Ninety nine per cent of the time that I get on base.

Wills is running 25 games ahead of his 1962 pace Through the Dodgers' first 106 games, he stole 72 bases. In 1962 he did not steal his 72nd base until the Dodgers' 131st game. "Yes.' he said.
