Angels Use New Weapon To Squeeze by Yankees By The Associated Press The Los Angeles Angels, who have used many and varied devices in their American League pennant chase, now have resorted to the use of T 'n T. The Thomas boys, Lee and George, sometimes known around the City of Angels as the T 'n T combination, collaborated in producing a 13th inning run Thursday that saved at least some semblance of an American League race.

"I just enjoy tennis very much and play the game a lot," said Mrs. duPont today before she joined her partner Margaret Varner in a semifinal match against top-seeded Americans, Karen Hantze Susman and Billie Jean Moffitt. 'It's as simple as that." At the age of 44, Mrs. duPont won her first crown in 1941 before some of her rivals were born. That was the case when she and Miss Varner, both of Wilmington, Del., upset the No. 2 foreign tandem of Margaret Smith, Australia and Justina Bricka, St. Louis, Thursday. Mrs. duPont, wife of multimillionaire William duP o n t Jr. won her first championship with Sarah Palfrey Cooke here in 1941 She went on to capture 10 straight through 1950, the others in partnership with Louise Brough. The duPont-Brough tandem clicked again for another string of three straight titles, 1955,57. Mrs. duPont says she follows no special diet, no rigid training schedule and is not bound to a set of exercises. Yankees 5-4.

The first game of the twi-night doubleheader was a reply of Wednesday's 8-8, 10-inning tie. Detroit, behind the hefty hitting of Al Kaline and Norm Cash, beat Cleveland 8-5 while Boston had little trouble with Kansas City, 8-2. Baltimore and the Chicago White Sox were not scheduled. The Thomas boys provided the 13th inning explosion that rocked the Yanks, but it was a couple of other Angels, Billy Moran and "We played a steadier game and Dan Qsinski, who kept them alive capitalized on their errors.
