His average cast was 166 1-3 feel, lie Klrkland's homer. Then they whooped it up as Bernle Allen's single drove In the run that gave the Twins a 13th-ln- ning 2-1 edge over the Baltimore Orioles who had been nipping at their heels, As a result of the night's activity, the Yanks were eight games In front of the White Sox with the Twins just another length behind and the Orioles 10% behind the league leaders. In the other AL night games, the Angels beat the Washington Senators at Los Angeles, 2-0, and the Detroit Tigers whipped the Alhlellcs at Kansas City, 5-2. Allen, benched most of the season by a weak bat and hilling .195, lashed a Slu Miller serve into right field to score Vic Power who had doubled, with the winner. Bill Daley, who hurled four innings of shutout relief collected his fourth vlctoiy. He has lost two. The Yankees saw their six game victory streak ended by a barrage of 19 lilts in the Boston 'daylight and Ihen hod a four-run rally in Hie ninth inning just fall short under the lights in the day- night doublclieader.

Ilils Is the: time of the year, what with the baseball season at Its height, that barroom arguments blossom in full flower. At newspaper sports departments throughout the country telephones ring at unlikely hours of the early morning and fuzzy voices say: "Shay, ol' buddy, I wantcha seddle an argument. Who started for the Yanks in the second game of the '42 Series?" "Lemme look It up." (Long silence.) "It wwas Ernie Bonliam." "Haw. I told 'im. Just repeat that to my friend here, will ya?" (Silence, with vague, barlsh sounds In the background.) "Yeah?" "It was Ernie Bonliam." "You sure?" "Yep." "Better check it again, I know it was Spud Chandler. I was there." About this time things can get a bit awkward. So, in the interest of cutting down telephone calls to harassed spoils departments, here are some of the more frequently dis- puted questions, with answers. 1. Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs in 1927. Who held the record before that and how many? 2. And who held the record before that and how many? 3. Who's the only player ever to win the triple crown — home runs, batting average and runs batted in—two limes? 4. Only eight other men have ever won the triple crown. Who were they? 5. What's the most home runs hit by a player who won the baiting championship in the same year? Who was he? 6. In modern ball, has a player eligible for the batting championship ever hit .400 or better and failed to win Uie title? If so, who? Answers: 1. Ruth, 59, 1921. 2. Ruth. 54, 1920. :?. Ted Williams, 1942, 1947. 4. Rogers Hornsby, Heinle Zimmerman, Quick Klein, Joe Medwick, Ty Cobb, Jimmy Foxx, Lou Gelirig, Mickey Mantle. 5. Mickey Mantle, 52, 1956. G. Yes.

ON GOODYEAR TIRES Monday, August 5th Craig Breedlove, with a wingless jet, Goodyear tires and 170 pounds of heart, hope and guts brought the land speed record back to America. 7:15 a.m. The silence of the Bonneyille Salt Flats was shattered by the whine of a 35 foot long jet racer. That whine became a roar as Graig Breedlove in his Spirit of America thundered into the record books.* His speed: 388.49 rnph one way, the other way . . . 428.37 mph! For an average of 407.45 miles an hour! Smashing the record held by England's John Cobb of 394.2 mph. A 1947 record that many experts thought could never be topped. One of the most important problems that Breedlov* faced when'he first decided to give the land speed record a try was summed up in a statement that appeared in a leading automotive magazine: "... there is no point in thinking of a land speed record car if there are no tires that will stand up to the required speed." Goodyear engineers accepted the unique ... almost impossible challenge ... and ... A TIRE IS BORN In his initial talk with Goodyear engineers, Breedlove said, "I need a tire that can take it. One that's practically indestructible. I'm going to go 400 to 500 miles an hour. That's two to three times as fast as they drive at Daytona or Indianapolis. This has got to be more than just a racing tire. When I get to top speed, the tires will have about 100 tons of centrifugal force trying to pull them to pieces. That's why I came to Goodyear because you people have the know-how." Goodyear engineers began to design, produce, and test the land speed tires. Most of the tire was cord... for strength. The cord was treated with Goodyear'a exclusive 3-T triple-tempering, triple-toughening process . . . the same 3-T processing that goes into all Goodyear auto tires. Each tire was tested on Goodyear's multi-stage dynamometer at speeds in excess of 600 miles per hour. Not one failed! Goodyear engineer checks 4-foot high tires. Special Goodyear high-speed dynamometer test simulated the 12,110 pounds of centrifugal force that is exerted at the tread surface at speeds of more than 600 mph. Craig Breedlove — first American to hold the Land Speed Record in 35 years. Breedlove built the "Spirit" in his garage. His estimate of a $10,000 car was exceeded ten-fold, before the car even left for the Salt. TIRE OF THE FUTURE In the making of Breedlove's record breaking tires, Goodyear scientists and engineers came up with developments and discoveries that will affect the tires you drive for many years to come. Goodyear engineers say that the tire of the future may well be built around a key design feature of these land speed record tires. When Craig Breedlove and his Spirit of America started at the far end of the 10-mile black stripe that marks the Bonneville course, he knew he was riding on the finest tires in the world. With that worry off his mind... he sped to the record speed of 407.45 roph.,. and became the fastest man on earth. Today you can get the benefit of Goodyear's superior high-speed developments in great, new Tufsyn tires. Built only by Goodyear, Tufsyn tires deliver up to 25% more durability, giving far more mileage. You can buy these Goodyear tires in all sizes for all cars from your Goodyear Dealer or Store . , . today. *Breedloue't speed — <u an official world record — it lubjtct to confirmation by tht Federation Internationale Motocyelittt, tince thit event uxu held under their International Sporting Codt, GOOD/ MOIWB PEOPWS BIDE ON GOODYEAR TIRES THAN ON ANT OTHER KIND WELLS-SCHMIDT TIRE CO. 1011, Ftrguion, Wood RIvtr-CL 4*3821 WELLS TIRE COMPANY 833 i, Proodwoy, Alfon-HQ 2*9284 Slore and Service Dept.
