Willie Davis started it with a scratch single, was sacrificed to second and took third on a passed ball. Maury Wills looped a little single to left to score him and Wills scampered to third on Jim Gilliam's single to left. Wally Moon tapped to Duke Carmel at first, Carmel froze with the ball and the bases were loaded. The tie - breaking run scored on third baseman Jim Hickman's throwing error and a sacrifice fly drove'in another. The Mets had gone ahead with three runs in the fifth, centered around Duke Snider's two-run single, preceded! by two infield singles, a hit batsman and Tommy Davis' error on a potential double play grounder.

World Freestyle Record Broken TOKYO (AP)—Don Scholland- er, 17-year-old Santa Clara, Calif., Swim Club member, shattered the world record for the 200-meter freestyle with a 1:58.5 clocking in the sixth U.S.-Japan swimming meet today. The listed world record of 2:00.4 is held by Schollander and several others but the California star lowered the mark to 1:58.8 on July 27 at Los Angeles when he became the first man to go under i two minutes. and I Outdoors with Harold Brand Public Feeds Fish and Waterfowl Nearly every evening as many as 75 to 100 children and adults enjoy feeding dozens and dozen: of waterfowl and hundreds of fish at the larger of two lakes in Rose Lawn Memory Gardens on Rt. 140 north of Civic Memorial Airport. "The public is welcome to feed them," said Ed Mense, manager and a partner in the Gardens. "It brings much enjoyment to the youngsters as well as older persons to be so close to many species of waterfowl and game Mense built the three-acre lake with three fingers seven years ago and it averages from 18 up to 28 feet deep. He has incorporated a waterfowl, refuge as well :is an outdoor gardens on the 95- acr'e grounds. He also has imported many trees including Japense walnut, weeping cherry, and others which ho hopes will function also as an educational value to outdoor enthusiasts. Fish Are Growing "The bass are getting quite large," Mense said. "This past year we missed about 12 tiny ducklings we assumed were taken by the fish. We also maintain a feed pen at 'the lake and the birds average eating about 530 a month in grain. Many youngsters save pieces Waukegan Golfer Loses in Western COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—George Boutell of Phoenix, Ariz., included a semi-final victory over an Illinois golfer in his quest for the 46th Western Junior Golf Championship. Boutell Friday defeated Greg Pitzer, 16, of Waukegan 3 and 2 with a 3-under par through 16 loles. Boutell, 19, was to meet Fred Ewald of Birmingham, Mich., today for the title. PRO FOOTBALL By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Buffalo 23, New York 8 National League Pittsburgh 24, Philadelphia 13 St. Louis 24, San Francisco 22 Imported Birds "I imported two swans from Hoboken, England, five years ago," said Mense, who resides at 308 S. Ninth St., East Alton. "The swans are thriving. I built a shelter for them which they ignored and then provided straw for them which they also by-passed. They prefer to find their own shelter." The species of waterfowl include muscovies, a large duck of tropical America; domesticated and wild mallards, crown mallard, domestic ducks and geese and even Chinese geese. A recent article in Life magazine pointed out that the Chinese geese are better watchdogs than dogs as they have a keener sense of sight and hearing and are more fear less. This' writer saw big schools of fish respond within seconds to pieces of bread tossed upon the water. The waterfowl also came to feed in a hurry. It was fun watching the fish snatch bits of food away from the birds, Some times the birds get irritated and try to pick up the guilty fish. Mense has stocked the bigger lake with bass, crappie and bluegill, A smaller lake also has game fish and catfish. of bread, crackers, doughnuts, and also bring corn for feed. Feeding may be done anytime but the best activity is from 5 p.m. on." No fishing is permitted and the public has cooperated. Very little littering is done. Containers are handy for bread wrappers and empty sacks. Some persons even bring as much as a five-pound bag of food at a time to feed the fish and waterfowl. Often when food is tossed on the water a V-wake is observed as fish come to feed. Some of the larger fish also make their own V-wake. A large catfish in the smaller lake named Big | Mo by the public, will take a whole doughnut in its mouth at a single bite. Safety Fence Concrete steps lead into the larger lake but a wire fence is stretched across it as a safety factor for visitors. It is easy to toss the food over the low fence. "In addition to the refuge value, the lakes serve a threefold purpose," Mense related. "One: we need the soil to build up the land in the gardens. Two: the higher gardens drain rain water quickly into the lake. Even a cloud burst will drain into the lakes inside of 10 minutes. Three: the lakes are an important part of the beauty in the landscaping." The larger lake area also has an adjoining marshy section providing the necessary wetlands for breeding waterfowl. Recently one setting duck ignored memorial services attended by many persons within a few feet of the nest. Mense and his partner also operate Valley View Gardens of Memory in Edwardsville and three other similar gardens In Kentucky.

The fish compote spiritedly with Osuna Upsets McKinley in Cup Match By JAMES BACON LOS ANGELES (AP)—Mexico, underdog before play started, goes into today's doubles match of American Zone Davis Cup competition as a solid favorite^proving what a difference a scorching day—and Rafael Osuna —can make. The handsome Osuna upset Wimbledon champ Chuck McKinley on Friday 6-2, 3-6, 6-2, 2-6, 6-3. That gave Mexico a 1-1 split with the United States as Dennis Ralston easily bested Mexico's Antonio Palafox 6-1, 6-4, 3-6, -63. Around the Los Angeles Tennis Club, McKinley had been regarded as a sure winner over Osuna— although the Mexican, a student at the University of Southern California, calls the club his home court. The Mexican doubles team of Osuna and Palafox is the 1963 Wimbledon champion and must rate as favorites over McKinley and Ralston. Nominations for the doubles are made an hour before the match but it is expected that both captains will go with their first- stringers. If the Mexicans win, the deciding match will be the opening singles Sunday afternoon when Osuna meets Ralston. Should Osuna win—he is favored —then the final singles between McKinley and Palafox would be meaningless. Pancho Segurt, coach of the Mexicans, on the eve of the tourney said Mexico would win 3-2. "Osuna will beat McKinley. Ralston will beat Palafox. My boys will win the doubles and then Osuna will beat Ralston and McKinley will beat Palafox," he said. So far, the famed Ecuadorian pro is batting 1,000. Miss Wright Cards Ace ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.
