SUFFERED ATTACKS Bennett, who is in Denver, said that during the last year Louis has suffered periodic at- tacks which caused 'him to be- 3me ill. The attacks that Louis suf- fered were the latest in a string of medical problems he has suf- fered in the last two years. In April, 1968, he was in hos- pital for several weeks to have his appendix and five gallstones removed. Then early last year, after fainting on a New York-street it was revealed that he had a heart condition.

John Bench lashed a three-run homer and keyed two rallies with doubles to lead the Cincin- nati victory. Jim Merritt, who went 61-3 innings, picked up his sixth in the ma- jors. WRESTLING TONIGHT!
