Don't hold your breath. The Tigers are giving anything but an indication of a summer slump. Willie Horton's first-inning single Tuesday night delivered a pair of runs that helped the Tigers to a 3-1 conquest of California—their seventh in eight games. And, Detroit's lead was widened to 8% games over Cleveland when the Indians were victimized 6-0 by Minnesota. Boston came from behind to nip Oakland 4-3 in the only other league game. Rain postponed the New York at Washington and Chicago at Baltimore games. Although the Tigers continue to make the race for first a ho- hum affair, a big logjam is developing for the runner-up spot. Only four games separate the Indians from the seventh-place Red Sox. Tiger right-hander Earl Wil- son picked up his sixth victory in 11 decisions but had to constantly pitch out of trouble. Horton staked him to the early lead after Jim Northrup doubled and Norm Cash walked, then both advanced on a wild pitch. Rookie Tom Matchick's first homer accounted for Detroit's other run in the seventh. California's Jim Fregosi ran his hitting streak to 12 games with a solo homer in the eighth, his seventh of the year. Minnesota's Jim Kaat blanked the Indians despite giving up seven hits. The Twins put it out of doubt in the fourth when Jack Hernandez doubled in two runs and Cesar Tovar and Jim Holt each singled in one. Frank Quilici's sacrifice fly accounted for a run in the fifth, and Ted Uhlaender tripled for another tally in the ninth. Ken Harrelson's two-run double in the eighth rescued Boston after the Athletics had taken a 3-2 lead. Dalton Jones, who scored twice, helped out with two singles and a double.

Gustav went to Dr. Schedler who was chief chemist and said, "I want to impress upon you to take care that the quality of our products is at all times preserved and if there is a possibility of any improvement, I want to know it." Regularly Gustav passed on the hops that were being used, supervised the barley buying and grading and saw to it personally that Pabst beer was the best that could be brewed. He had a series of taps put in the laboratory where he often spent an hour in blindfold test taking small sips at 15 minute intervals. The tradition of quality is the heritage of todays members of the Pabst family. You can enjoy it if you drink Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

I hope I can express myself well enough so you will print my letter. A few weeks before Christmas, our anniversary, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and so on, the phone calls start — first from the daughters, then the daughters-in-law. They all ask, "What can we buy you?" Of course I can't tell them that what we really want is not for sale. An invitation to a family meal with everyday chatter would be more delicious than a severn-course banquet in the finest restaurant. An offer to drive us to town once in a while so we wouldn't have to fight the heavy traffic and park in a lot and feed meters would be pure heaven. Even a 10-minute phone call that is not a request to baby- sit, but a call just to visit, would be a rare treat. What a joy it would be if pur children would ask us to join them at the theater one night, or the symphony, or a movie — just knowing they thought of us would be a lift.
