Democratic Atty. Gen. Pat Brown announces that he will run for governor of California. His first promise is to ensure equal job opportunities. Brown also denounces Proposition 18, a right to work measure. Brown rejects Republican Sen. William F. Knowland's challenge to a debate.

In sports, baseball Commissioner Ford Frick is asking club owners to approve expansion of the National and American leagues to 10 teams.

The Dodgers beat the Giants 5-3 with a two-run homer by Duke Snider. Sandy Koufax (10-9) says it's his best game since being injured July 5 in a collision at first base with the Cubs' Jim Bolger.
