The commission ruled that another race track In southeastern New Hampshire would not he In the best interests of the state. Changed Since Return . (By 'United Pres») Boston— It', was either marriage or the Marine 'Corps, but whatever if was —it. made Ted Williams a new man.. ' . - ' The slugging Boston .Red Sox outfielder is" a changed' personality from the 24-year-old kid who signed up with the leathernecks three years ago. ' • Time was when some sportswriters couldn't enter the Red Sox 1 dressing room without being called a "chowderhead" by the lanky boy wonder. And back In 1942, It didn't take a very clever fan In Fenway Park's' left field section to get Williams' nanny. But it's all different now. Ted greets newsmen with a smile these days and merely vents his feelings on an innocent balde of grass when the left field grandstand jockeys take him for a ride, Of course, Ted hasn't changed all his spots. He'll still confide that he's the greatest hitter alive today. But when 'he combines that sort of talk with the kind of free-swinging 'for the fences he's doing these •days, his cockiness is just put down as a colorful trait. . . At that, Williams says he's not going all-out with hia better-than ,300 batting average thus far this season. Says he ,. "I'd say I'm about CO per cent right." a. But it is true that the Fenway fireball has come back to the ball •parks with a much more likeable way about him. And everybody in .'Boston— Including the sportswrit- .ors— ore happy about the whole Some say that the Marines landed on Ted: and got the whole situation well in hand. Others attn- bute the change to thn steadying Influence of his wife. The combination sbems to have worked 1 wonders. And Teddy's no longer a bear.

The Naugatuck Amateur league has gone on record in complaining to town officials. Something should be done at once! The fleld. utter all, i» Intended primarily for the men and women who use It for various sports. They should be the first to benefit from any improvements which means that the building of a new playing Infield should-bo the Unit step taken. This should not be an expensive job As things are now, it is manifestly unfair 'to ask local talent, both young and. old; to play on the present diamond. Therefore, if Recreation field is to remain a scene of outdoor sports it should be provided with a "first class diamond" now, before it is loo late! It costs nothing to "demand action on public improvements. It takes something more to get action on any construction program, as a good- many 'war veterans have found. But, certainly this .claim comes ahead of any! Salem In First Place Grammar School Loop (By KENNY CLYMER) ; Yesterday afternoon, O'Shca came through with another win for Snlem, to give them top place, in the Grammar Schcol loop. The Meadow street school now sports a -1 and 0 record. Salem started the scoring in the first inning- in their game against the highly rated Central Icum, by notching 'two runs, against their rivals. They • added two more to their score in the 3rd, to give them a 4-0 lead. In the fifth though, Central capitalized on two .Salem miecues, and reduced Salem's lead to two runs. Salem came back In the sixth with one run, a run that eventually proved to be the deciding factor in the-game. Central scored again in the seventh, but the three run mare-in held by Salem was too much for them, and so they came out on the short end of a 5-4 score; Dennis of Salem, hit the longest hit of the day, a triple that scored two runs for Salem, in the third. In the other grammar school games played yesterday, St. Francis beat Prospect, . 5-4, and Hop Brook set back St. Hedwig's, 11-10. The league standing's now arc: Salem, first, and then in order, Central, St. Fj-ancis, tied for second, Prospect, Hop Brook, and St. Hedwig's, who'-haveyet to win a game.
