Miami Boatbuilder DICK BERTRAM, runner-up for the 1964 world powerboat driving championship, drove his 36-foot Brave Moppie to a world record for diesel-powered boats of 57.65 mph in two runs over a measured-mile course on the Miami ship channel. The former mark was 42.33 mph.

BOWLING—The winner of the Queens Tournament of the Woman's International Bowling Congress in Portland, Ore. was BETTY KUCZYNSKI of Chicago, who finished an undefeated week with two victories over La Verne Carter of St. Louis on the last day of the tournament.
