(Only games scheduled,) DANEURY KACINO With ('Oinp.ntition at fever pitch at the Dun bury Speedwny and many of the up and coming mld- Kct auto race pilots looking- to dethrone the reiffnins favorites at the raceway, the bift holiday card or spood scheduled for tonight at his quarler-mile strip, looms as one of the hottest speed sessions to -tike place ut this track this year. When we grazed at the calendar 1'or this week, we enjoyed the vo*rd." inactivity" ettnbia/.ohed across the cover of it, which indicated, after consulting- our local dictionary, that there were vo>ry few sporting events taking place during the current, or next, week. "Why'"' We voiced in a chorus. Until a few moments later we realized tat this was the week that most law-abiding citizens chose to take their summer vacation. And- so. this week, we shall turn to national sports, and see if anything is f;oinff on outside or tfjfs little sphere of "inactivity." "We suppose it's about t.imr; that we noticed just what those persons called the Red' Sox v.-ere dolnfc up in Bean -Town. As we look at the baseball standings now, the Red Sox seem to be run- nintr away with the league. But what's this we seu down in Quaker-state; it can't be. Oh, but yes U is. The Phillies have risen out of the cellar and an? now taking a look at what the world looks like. Believe' me, those fellows must feel Kood, as it's the first- time they've seen light, sinco •Grant took R'ich/rnond,.'' Well, perhaps that is a slipht prevarication, but they have been in the I leacrue cellar for quite sonic limp,; nnd- -besides, ahy place in the j e, aside from last, for the I Phillies, is an improvement. ' There was talk down in Philndel phia of givingr Ben Chapman, the nomination for president, but his only comment was, "Let Harry keep it. I've grot a good job." Speaking of the Phillies, thosa sensational Blue Jays are playiny in this area Friday afternoon at the Municipal Stadium in Waterbury. Joe Samoska tc)ls us that most of the seats have frone, but they are arranging it so as to bring in more seals, and give every person in this locality, at least, a partial chance of viewing this sensational team. Up in Canada, we noticed our friend "Dutch" Harrison shooting par on every hole, and although George Fazio eventually won out in the contest, (we're talking: of golf now) "Dutch" shot the best 18 up there. Still though, it's the greenbacks that count. We served with "Dutch" down in Greensboro when lie was a S-Sgt. and we were a private. Incidentally we saw him take the National Open, being held that year at Durham, N. C., or was it Charlotte. Perhaps it was Haleigh, who knows? Anyhow the name of the course was Pine-Crost. Does that help? And before we sign off, here's some local stuff. A] Brewer, secretary of the Amateur League, stated that a!) Amateur Leapuc team managers will have to present their sipned player contracts as soon as possible, and he 'reminded- these team managers that the limit of players on a team, is fifteen. So Ion);', fellows. P.S.—Who is Oaghorn?
