?Shock of the Week
In a week in which the Yankees lost a two-game series to the White Sox—with Mickey Mantle and Billy Martin making horrible bobbles afield—a Page One banner in the New York World-Telegram and Sun made it seem that anyone could beat the champs: FORMOSA MOBS BEAT YANKS. Then Yankee fans relaxed—it was only bad news from the Far East.
Iron Liege, the Kentucky Derby winner who lost his chance at the Triple Crown when Bold Ruler beat him in the Preakness, cheered even his heretofore skeptical jockey, Willie Hartack, with a record-breaking performance in the $62,400 Jersey Stakes at Garden State. Said Hartack, who will ride him in the Belmont June 15: "He's a real runner."
?South vs. North
Alumni of UCLA, Southern Cal and the University of California are boiling like ante-bellum Southerners at the refusal of the PCC majority (a Northern crowd) to ease last year's penalty bans. Secession talk is now near the Sumter stage.

The USLTA is cracking down: top American tennis players have been told to head for home after Wimbledon closes in early July to help brighten U.S. summer events—instead of lingering for the remaining European tournaments.
