The fact that Dave struck out four times didn't bother the Sox a bit. They downed the Cleveland Indians, 6-1 behind the sound hitting of rookies Pete Ward and Tom McCraw. McCraw drove in two runs with a bunt single and his fourth home run and Ward singled in one run and slugged his 18th home run.

(AP)The National Tennis Championships got under way today at the West Side Tennis Club on a note of international mystery. Everybody is asking: "What happened to the Russians?" The Soviet Union, with announced designs on the Davis Cup, was supposed to send three or four of its ranking players on the special plane which Tuesday brought 80 stars from 28 countries here for the tournament. The Soviet athletes failed to show. There Were several explanations but one conclusion: The Russians apparently have given up their five-year plan for taking over the No. 1 position in the court sport. Experiences at Wimbledon and Forest Hills must have convinced them that other countries, particularly the United States and Australia, have made such vast strides that they cannot be overtaken on such short notice.
