But he was in more hot water "during ihe classic than Nerwcombe. Somehow the hard-throwing Cherokee . managed always to get the Dodgers under control. A smile also lit up the face of the old pro. Tommy Henrich. He suld he didnl know ,what kind, of ball he hit to bring- the thrilling pitching- duel to an end. "I was Just looking at the ball, • "Henrich said, "and it looked pretiy good to me."

' •; Last year the Garnet and Grey forces played Torrington's Red Raiders under the lights, atFussen- ich Park, and took a 31-6 beating. The Raiders scored three quick first period touchdowns and added two more in the final period. A 30-yard run by Charlie AleRi set the locals up in business in the last quarter and a Joe Tam«ey to Alegl pass resulted in the lone Naugatuck touchdown of the game. Torrington .favored Torrington will be favored over the Greyhounds again thisi year. This will mark the first time in three games this season that the locals have not been given an .even break with their opponents. Both Derby, to whom the Greyhounds lost, 7-6, an,d Wilby. whom they tied, 6-all, were rated no better than even choices with the locals. The visitors dropped their opening contest of the year to .a surprising-Crosby High team, 14-0, but snapped back last week to defeat Ansonia. They will show a squad liberally studded with veterans and have a strong running attack, a good passing attack and a strong forward wall. All o£ the locals, with the exception of Glenn Dansby, freshman substitute tackle, will be in shape for the tilt. Glenn suffered a broken leg in a JV game with Seymour, Monday, and will be out for the season. Bob "Red" White and Bob Rabtoy 'each sustained minor injuries against Wilby last Saturday, but both will be, ready this weekend.
