Exciting Pennant Races
Feature Closing Months
Os Both Major Leagues
By MAC IRVIN
Assistant Sports Editor
August is upon us and it looks

San Francisco Giants, who are
presently riding first place.
The Braves, with the solid hitting
of Hank Aaron, Eld Mathews,

a dependable pitching staff, look
as if they will be tough when the
