The Yankees were off to an early lead in today's game. They hopped on Carl Erskine for three runs on five hits in the first two innings. The Dodgers, losers of all six previous series in which they par- ticipated, were banking their all on Erskine, who last Friday struck out 14 Yankees to set a record as Brooklyn won the third game 3-2. The Yankees countered with southpaw Whitey Ford, who was lifted after one inning on Satur- day and charged with defeat in the fourth game. Stengel stuck with the same bat- ting order that won Sunday. Man- ager Charlie Dressen of the Dodg- ers reverted to the order that faced Ford last time. A crowd of some was on hand. It was a cloudy, chilly day a threat of rain. The play-by-play follows: FIRST INNING DODGERS: Gilliam popped to Collins near first base. Reese crack- ed a long single to left. Robinson bounced to Martin who tagged Reese coming down to second but was unable to throw to first for an attempted double play when Reese slid into him and upset him. Man- ager Stengel came out of the dug- out charging Reese with interfer- ence but Umpire Gore paid no at- tention. Campanella smashed a hard ground single through the center of the diamond, Robinson stopping at second. Hodges hit a low liner right into the hands of Rizzuto. No runs, two hits, no er- rors, two left. Woodling walked. Collins went down swinging. Bauer singled, Woodling stopping at sec- ond. Berra's hot smash bounced off Furillo's glove into the right field stands for a ground rule double. Woodling scored on the hit and Bauer moved to third. Mantle was given an intentional base on balls to load the bases. Gilliam allowed Martin's hot smash to bounce off his shoe tops for an error enabling Bauer to score and the other run- ners to advance a base. Cox grab- bed McBougald's hot smash, threw to Gilliam forcing Martin at sec- ond and Gilliam's throw to Hodges doubled up McDougald. It was the first Dodger double play of the series. Two runs, two hits, one er- ror, two left. SECOND INNING DODGERS: Snider struck outi now, Furillo blooped a single over first inside the right field line but was out trying to stretch it into a double, Collins to Rizzuto. Cox missed a low fast ball for the third strike. No runs, one hit, no errors, none left. YANKEES: Rizzuto singled. Ford singled, sending Rizzuto to third. Woodling flied to Robinson and Rizzuto scored after the catch as Robinson's throw went to second base. Collins tapped the ball down the third base line.

A variety of accidents took the lives of eight persons in Minnesota and five in Wisconsin over the weekend. Traffic, airplane, hunting, electrocution and riding mishaps contributed to the toll.

Sen. Bridges (R-NH) jolted ad- ministration officials with a week- end announcement that the Senate Appropriations Committee prob- ably will call Foreign Operations Administrator Harold E. Stassen on the carpet to explain what Bridges called "capricious" job firings in his agency. Sen. Knowland of California, the GOP floor leader, made it clear on his return from a world tour that he will oppose a proposal by Sen. Capehart (R-Ind) to make the chairmen of 15 regular legislative committees members of the Sen- ate Republican Policy Committee. Bridges' statement-, issued at his office here, gave something of a Republican endorsement to fre- "We are determined to keepjquentiy voiijed Democratic com- them quiet and avoid any possible plaints that dismissals of federal CIA-T- >r CQirl OTA Vi -IP crop nut- if__ WASHINGTON Fa- zollah Zahedi of Iran says the Communists came "very near" taking over his country, but that now the Red threat is "not at all" grave. President Eisenhower, a veteran himself, tried on his new American Legion cap for the post where he holds membership at Abilene, Kan. It was brought to the White House today by Arthur J. Connell, new national commander of the Legion.

She was nounced in Tehran yesterday that Mossadegh will be tried on a charge of trying to overthrow the Iranian monarchy. Conviction could result in the death sentence. Zahedi was asked "how large a mess" he inherited from Mossa- degh, and he replied: "It's very difficult even to imag- ine, especially on the economic and financial side. It is extremely difficult to describe how much of a mess he left.

PAUL Ufi Crime bureau agents may arrest traffic laws violators as part of their regular duties, Atty. Gen. Burnquist ruled today. Game wardens, however, have no authority to make such arrests, j except as a private person when a public offense is committed in his presence. Burnquist gave the rulings in re- sponse lo a request by oov. An- derson for a clarification of the powers of crime bureau agents and game wardens as part of a campaign to help cut the mounting rate of fatalities in traffic acci- dents. Burnquist emphasized that every employe or oiiicer of all stale agencies, regardless of his statu- tory authority, may, as a private person, arrest anyone who vio- lates a traffic law or any other law in his presence. May Divide Time The crime bureau superintend- ent, Burnquist held may requira members of his agency to devote a "reasonable portion of their time to the apprehension and arrest of violators of Lraffic laws." The only agency of the state whose members are specifically authorized to make arrests for traffic violations on state trunk highways is the highway patrol, Burnquist said. The governor also wanted to know what agencies of slate gov- ernment can be utilized -to supple- ment efforts of the highway pairol either by way of making actual arrests or issuing warnings. Burnquist replied: "It is of course, the duty of all sheriffs, constables, marshals and policemen throughout the state lo make arrests for violations of our traffic statutes and ordinances within their respective jurisdic- tions." Burnquist cited the lawful speed limits where no speed hazard exists as: 30 miles an hour in any municipality; 60 miles in other locations during the day time; 50 miles in such other locations at night. Must Cut Speed The law requires a reduction in speed when approaching and cross- ing an intersection or railway crossing, going around a curve, approaching a hill crest, traveling on a narrow or winding road, and when special hazards exist includ- ing weather or highway conditions. Burnquist then pointed out that the law gives the highway com- years, but never before has and forms on which 800 tons of concrete had just been poured gave This was the procedure for his in- way and tossed workers 30 feet duction into the nation's highest to the floor of the tank. judicial position: The men landed in Music Teacher Dies few minutes before stepping rods used in reinforcing the con oath pledging that he will support and defend the Constitution.
