    "It all began for Henry Aaron back in Milwaukee in April of 1954 -



    Regardless where he hits the homer, I hope for ??? Aarons sake it comes soon. This is Dennis Swanson reporting."



    for transcript of commentary see accompanying sheet.



    to whom it may concern:



    b and M and info on the asron spot....runs :55 mixed track with color film of 1954. aaron homered off vic raschi, the ex-yankeex great who was finishing up his career with the st louis cardinals. Aaron hit 13 homeruns as a rookie...his lowest seasonal total ever. before the braves moved from ??? milwaukee, aaron had reached the 398 mark.



    atlanta stadium then became home from hank...ideal because the ball carries so well there.



    last sept 29th against houston's jerry reuss (royce) aaron ended the year at 713..one short of babe ruth's all time mark. aaron resumes the countdown..maybe tomorrow in cincinnati His appearance has become controversial. Aaron would prefer to hit the record breaking homeruns in atlanta. commissioner bowie kahn wants him in the lineup in cincinnati lat. The two have a ??? conference tomorrow morning about a scholarship program. its hard to believe they wont find some other things to discuss as well. Regardless where he hits the homer, I hope for aaron's sake it comes soon. this is dennis swanson reporting.



    info on the oakhand a's spot...runs 1:20 at :24 super Sal Bando mixed track with color film Oakland Captain



    suggested lead...the ??? oakland a's have won two world series championships in a row and look good enough to do it again. charles amundson reports:
