The American league-leading Bos- ion Ked Sox rank second to the Yankees with 621.660 in 34 games. The Cubs, defending National lea- gue champions, are third with 536 in 29 games. Washington Senators, the most night-minded club in the majors, are fourth with in 31 games. Every club has topped last year's totals at a corresponding date, with Cincinnati Reds duplicating the feat of the Yankees and Red Sox of having already drawn more fans than they did all last year.

Vega Brothers Take Opening Matches Davis Cup Singles MONTREAL, June tennis-playing Vega Ar- mando and run tee tarnale a close race back in Mexico so far as being "hot stuS" is con- cerned. The Mexicans dealt a stunning blow to Canada's Davis cup hopes yesterday when they captured the two opening day singles matches. Rolando, a year the older at 24. disposed of Brendan Macken of Montreal 6-4, 6-2. 7-5 while Arman- do, the Mexican national champion, defeated Henri Rocnon 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. To stay in the running, the Cana- dians must win in the doubles match this afternoon, and that's sometning considered highly improbable. The Vega brothers are rated even bet- ter in doubles than in singles and they'll be playing a Macken and laird only recently. Bad bounces came often in both matches yesterday because of the bumpy condition of the grass courts. But'one poor bounce forced Ro- lando Vega into a trick shot that brought- him a big cheer from ths spectators.

Coming to a dead stop he swung his racquet around his back and caught the ball cleanly, send- ing it over the net for a shot that the surprised Macken muffed.
