Dampeneron New Stadium NEW YORK. (AV-^Prematufe" was the word today for a report that an engineering survey has found the construction of a new ball park to keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn "practical" from the qi- ty's standpoint. The story was published Monday by the World-Telegram and Sun, which added that the three- man Brooklyn sports authority will urge immediate approval of the project at the next meeting of the Board of Estimate July 25. Mayor Wagner, however, said he knew nothing about the report, and had "no idea" what the engineering firm would recommend. Walter O'Mallej, Dodger president, said he "would prefer to wait for the actual report before making any comment." And a spokesman for the engineering firm making the survey commented: "The story is premature. Our report will be ready in three weeks."

They grabbed a half-game edge over the St. Louis Cardinals Says Aaron Best Hitter In Baseball By JOE RE1CHLER BROOKLYN (fi - Milwaukee's Hank Aaron has blossomed into baseball's greatest righthanded hitter since Rogeri Hornsby, his manager, Fred Haney, declared today. "Aaron is the best hitter in the game," asserted Haney, who once played with Ty Cobb, "and he hasn't even reached his full maturity yet. I predict that in another year or two they'll be talking about htm in the same breath with Hornsby. Harry Hell- rnann and some of the other great righthanded hitters." , Admiration Society v Aaron's rnutual admiration society is growing stronger day by day.* Brooklyn's Roy Campanella c8l}s,Hen>y the. toughest batter in .tM-leflgiie to* pitch to. Milwaukee 's. RwfvgcholBndienst says Aaron Is the best' righthanded hitter he's oyer seen ana has more power -than Stan Musial; his bosom friend and former teammate. "1 believe Aaron is a better hitter than Willie Mays," said Red, who spent a full season with the Giants. "Willie may hit a ball harder te left field but Henry gets more wood on it to right. Willie can be pitched to but not Aaron. That boy hits any kind of pitch to all fields. There isn't a park in the league where he can't hit the ball over the right field fence." The 23-year-old Braves' outfielder, In his fourth season in the major leagues, currently is second in National League batting with .343, and leads in home runs with! 28 and in runs batted in with 75.! Only one point behind Musial in! the batting race, he has a good' chance to become the first triple crown winner in his league since Joe Medwick achieved the feat, with the St. Louis Cardinals in | 1937. Last year Aaron led the league in hitting with a .328 average- Monday night by beating them 6-2. It was rookie Jack Sanford'j 12th victory, tops in the NLv, Brooklyn's Dodgers, also on the rebound, won their fourth in a row by battering Milwaukee 20-< t^o climb within four percentage points of the third-place Braves. The Giants defeated the Cubs 5-3. ' Just one game was scheduled in the American Le a g u e and the Washington Senators walloped Kansas City 10-3. 7 Years In Minors * Sanford, a 28-year-old fast-balling right-hander who bummed around in the minors for seven years, joined castoff Jjm Hearn with three victories in the Phillies' streak, which has jumped them from fifth place since July 1. All the Cards managed off Sanford was five hits, two by Al Dark, who tripled and scored the first run and homered for the other. The Phils, who have pressed to second place six times previously only to be repulsed, swept the three-game set from the Cards with just six hits, but four were for extra bases. Willie Jones hit a two-run homer in the third. Wilmer Mizell lost his seventh defeat. Bums Had' a Ball The Dodgers really had a ball, walloping 18 hits, five of them home runs, adding 10 bases on balls and scoring nine runs in the eighth on just five hits. Charlie Neal hit two of the Brook home runs, and drove in three runs along with Sandy Amoros. Sandy, Duke Snider and Don Drysdaje, who won his seventh but needed Ed Roebuck's relief in the seventh when he became sh"ky with a 9-3 lead, hit the others. The Braves used five pitchers, starting with loser Bob Trowbridge and finishing with Taylor Phillips, who absorbed the eighth- inning embarrassment. Wes Covington had three hits and homered along with Carl Sawatski among Milwaukee's 11 hits. Mays Hits lfith The Giants made it behind Willie Mays, who junked a 3-2 Cub lead with his 16th homer — a two- run job in the third. Don Mueller also homered for the Giants as Johnny Antonelli won his ninth with relief help. Don Elston lost it. Winner Russ Kemmerer and Lou Berberet hit two-run homers and Faye Throneberry connected for a solo shot for the Senators, who were out-hit 12-11. Wally Burnette lost it. Oh yeah, if you were wondering about the Pittsburgh Pirates in that first-place quiz, forget about it. They were in a four-way tie opening day. West Coast Fishing Is Spurred by New Methods W 2 9 By DION HENDERSON Associated Press Staff Writer At a season when some inland fishermen will boast of catches measured to the last fraction of an inch, West Coast anglers are, doing business with lunkers where you can be casual about fractions of a foot. And this Is not limited to the quarter-million or so who take to the briny deep <n the big fishing cruisers, although this is a pleasant time of year for them too. Pickings on Pacific, yellow tail and particularly on albacore off shore start looking up this time of year. Shore Fishing But it's the shore or just offshore sports fisher that has grown up on the Oregon coast north of California in the past six or seven years that's drawing special attention, from visitors as. well as natives. The spinning system probably is responsible for most of the boom, although the "old methods" familiar to the East Coast still have some support. BUt the boom hat seen the stiff trolling rod. and that junior-grade utility pole known as the surf rod give way to limber spinning rig» that can handle delicate baity right up under the nose of feeding salmon. Tons of Salmon And what the change means In results can be read in such harvest report as the Umpqua river creel count a couple of season* back when the sport started getting hot: 100 tons of salmon caught by more than 21.000 anglers during the summer season. Salmon aren't the only prize, either. Oregon fisheries experts, as a matter of fact, are somewhat at a loss to describe just how good they've got it. The vast sports fishery there still is virtually untapped as far as volume it concerned. Infinite Variety H. J. Rayner, chief of the state's fishery division operations, says that at least five kinds of sea perches are available, fifteen rock fishes, kelp greenling lingcod and many flatfishes can be taken readily. A five foot lingcod is no rarity, although it may be a considerable shock to the inlander used to handsome sports like brook trout. However, no matter how it looks, it tastes fine.
