Stirling Moss, icy-nerved British racing driver, throttled teardrop-shaped, British-built experimental MG back and forth across Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats at record-roaring clip to set live speed marks for Class F cars (Aug. 24). His records: 245.64 mph for one kilometer; 245.11 mph for flying mile; 243.08 mph for five kilometers; 235.69 mph for five miles; 224.7 mph for 10 kilometers (see page 20).
Swim records, as vulnerable as pickpockets at a policemen's ball, continued to fall on both sides of ocean. Dutch teen-agers overhauled two world marks at Barcelona, where Atie Voorbij splashed 100-meter butterfly in 1:10 and Judith de Nijs covered 1,500-meter freestyle in 20:01.2 (Aug. 20). Three American long-course stands were broken when 17-year-old Lance Larson of El Monte, Calif. was clocked in 1:02.7 for 100-meter butterfly at Glendale (Aug. 19); Olympian Bill Yorzyk barreled 100-yard butterfly in 56.6 at Larchmont, N.Y. (Aug. 21); pretty 13-year-old Chris Von Saltza of Santa Clara pinwheeled 100-meter backstroke in 1:13.4 at San Francisco (Aug. 24).
Pitcher Bob Keegan, aging (36) right-hander, gave Chicago much-needed shot in arm, projected White Sox right smack into American League pennant fight. Keegan hurled 6-0 no-hitter against Washington (see page 17), came back five days later to beat Baltimore 6-2 on three-hitter and move streaking (six straight) Chicago to within four games of league-leading New York Yankees as two teams headed toward face-to-face battle.
Milwaukee, back on road after giving local burghers some second thoughts, began to stretch out National League again, taking two out of three from Brooklyn to forge 7� games ahead of Dodgers and St. Louis.
