They conversed in low tones for two minutes and seemed to be getting the matter settled when suddenly Sutton leaped at Garvey and flung him against a row of lockers along the opposite wall. THE TWO players went down heavily and were claw-ing at one another, trying ineffectively to get in punches. Immediately, a number of the other Dodger players, including Smith, Rick Monday, Davey Lopes and Bill Russell, tried to pry them apart. It took more than two minutes before they were able to get the combatants apart, after which Dodger coach Preston Gomez and general manager Al Campanis, who had witnessed the entire affair, led Garvey into the trainer's room. Sutton walked off to the other end of the clubhouse. Both players had many scratches on their faces. Garvey appeared groggy after the episode.

I was fouling 'em back, fouling 'em back, and then all of a sudden he threw me a curveball and I hit the home run. I thought Earl Weaver was gonna kill himself." That Aug. 30 game was one of Wilson's big ones in 1 968, the First" game of a crucial series with the second-place Birds. Wilson not only smacked the home run, he pitched a four-hitter to increase the Tigers' lead over Weaver's men to seven games. "Jt was no fluke, that win over Baltimore. Wilson was an absolute Oriole killer throughout his career. He was 4-1 against the O's in 1968, moving his career slate to 20-6 against them. Earl Wilson's big game: The ex-Marine had an even more critical victory earlier, one that stopped the Tigers' longest losing streak of the season. Many of his former teammates have mentioned that Aug. 26 game as the turning point of the season J' After we lost four In a row in New York," recalls Wilson, "wjb went over to Milwaukee to play Chicago." (The White Sox were playing some of their games at County Stadium that year, as Milwaukee had no team of its own). "I pitched and shut 'em out and I think I drove in two of the three runs." win increased the Tigers lead to 5la games and gave them some breathing room until they could meet the Birds a few days later at Tiger Stadium. When Wilson beat Phoebus and the Tigers took two of the three games from Baltimore, the heat was off. Jiarl Wilson remembers: "The way Gates Brown used to pitich-hit was unbelievable. You knew if it got down to wipning the ball game, a man on second or third. Gates was gonna get a base hit. It just seemed like it was automatic. You didn't see too many times where he failed. Obviously, he must have failed sometimes, but I can't remember em He probably was as instrumental in us winning that thing as anybody on the ball club."

It doesn't matter if you fuse it on, implant it, inject it, glue it on or even tie it on. It still an artificial cover-up, you're still bald and it shows. No matter which' cover-up method you use the artificial hair eventually falls out arid you have to keep going back to have new hair added. This is costly and time consuming. The only way you can end your baldness permanently is to get back your own growing hair. And the only way to do that is with a hair transplant. The Thomas clinics have perfected the hair transplant to a simple, effective office procedure that can be done in a short time and at a reasonable cost, and most important it's permanent. Consult with your Doctor, then come to The Thomas for a permanent head of hair you can be proud to call your own. Open daily 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.-Sat 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wl ami ae DETROIT: First Nat. Bldi.
