The Twins finally gained revenge on their chief tormentor. Clcvelands Jim Grant. They bombed the Indians rWit-hamler with three home runs to beat him for the first time this season. Ted Lcpcio rocked Grant with a grand-slammer in the first inning and Harmon Killcbrew and Jim Lemon also homered. A spectacular all-around performance by Boston's Carl Ya- strzcmski helped Red Sox rookie Don Schwall beat Baltimore for his eighth triumph in 10 decisions. The rookie outfielder singled in the fourth and raced home on a double by Jim Pa.Liliuroni. Jackie •Jensen singled Payliaroni home. Star Hope SPORTS U.S., Soviet Track Stars Lock Horns MOSCOW 'API — The I'niled States and the Soviet Union lock liorns Saturday and Sunday in a track and field meet that is dwarfed only by the Olympics. The Americans, never defeated in dual competition, will be fighting to maintain their .superiority against a. foe that is challenging the United States as the top power. The two countries have met before—here in 1!)5!1 and in Philadelphia in 1959. Both times the Americans won by 14-11 margins. The Russians won both times in the women's meets, just as they arc expected to win this one. Unless the United States springs some suprises the chances are that the margin in the men's meet will not be quite so emphatic as in the past It probably will wind up 13-9. with Coach Jumbo Jim Elliolt's men winning the 100, 200, 400 800 and 1500-meter events the 110-meter hurdles, the 400-m c t c r hurdles, the broad jump pole vault, discus shot put 400-meter relay and 16UO-metcr relay. That would give the Russians the 5,000 meters, the in.aou meters the 3000-meter steeplechase the 20-kilometer walk the hop Fighter Sonny Liston Is Suspended PHILADELPHIA 'AP 1 — The Pennsylvania Stale Athletic Commission today suspended Charles 'Sonny Liston. the No. 1 heavyweight challenger indefinitely for action detrimental to boxing and Ihe public 1 . Alfred Klein, one of Ihe throe- member commissoin, read the suspension decision and told Listen hi' could apply for reinstatement at 'such lime as you have rehabilliated yourself and shown that you have respect for the law." The suspension of the 211-year- old Liston resulted from two recent arrests in Philadelphia — One for lounging on a corner when told by police to move and the other a month later on various charges including impersonating an offcicr while allegedly forcing a woman to stop her car in a lonely park section. Liston was released by magistrates after both arrests but the State Athletic Commission ordered him to show cause why his boxing license should not be suspended. Liston. an ex-convict, served two terms in prison in Missouri. Since Pennsylvania is a member of the National Boxing Association. His suspension undoubtedly will be honored in the NBA's •ill-slate jurisdiction. Only Massachusetts and New York and the European continent do not rccog- ni/.e NBA actions. ; Liston had asked the commission to forgive past derelictions and allow him to continue his boxing career. When today's hearing got under way. Atiy. Morton Witkins. speak- inu for Liston. told the commission that Liston waived a hcar- inu' and placed himself "on the mercy of the commission." Witkin then read a statement for Liston. who sat next to him in the packed hearing room. The statement said: "I regret that I have caused the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission any embarrassment by reason of my indiscrct behavior. I can assure Ihe commission that from now on in I shall so conduct myself as to creditably merit the confidence have imposed in me in granting me a boxing license " Witkin told commission Chairman James Crowlcy and Klein that Liston "throws himself into your hands and at your mercy." "You have the power to govern this man's whole future life. He leaves the matter entirely in your hand-; and asks you to remember the old adage that 'To err is human, forgiveness is divine" Witkin said. Lislon was cleared by city magistrates after the arrests. Standings Southern Association By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS W- L. Pct-G.B.

Summer's Ihe season to get extra mileage from your dollars on the trucks built to give you extra miles of hauling-. With Independent Front Suspension, Chevrolet trucks keep going thousands of miles longer because far less destructive jar and shaku are transmitted through the truck.
