TUESDAY, OCT. 11, 1M» EUITDOfi BIG WIC Yin Cuddy Holds First Drill • As Providence Court Mentor Several Members Of Last Year's Squad Report James "_Vin" Cuddy, NuUKatuck native, the new basketball mentor at Providence College, held his first basketball drill yesterday afternoon. The new coach was greeted by a. large number of candidates, including a host of returning veterans and a large number of sophomores up irom the excellent P. C. frosh team of a year ago. Cuddy, who went to Providence ufter two very successful seasons at the Fort Trumbull branch of the University of Connecticut, plans to look over all candidates for a week or so before making his initial cut. Last year's varsity squad is back almost to a man. The only missing members being Charlie Bres- nanan and Larry DePalma. Bresnahan, the captain a year ago, has graduated and DePalma is no longer eligible for collegiate athletics having signed a professional baseball contract this summer. Although the first game on' the P. C. schedule is almost two months away, Cuddy is eager to get started at this early date as he realizes that he must become familiar with his men as well as install his system, which will be new to the veteran P. C. players. Vin is a former Naugatuck High school athlete. He attendee! the University of Connecticut and was one of only two men ever to win nine letters in the three major sports. Y. M. C. A.

A.H.L Season Opens Tonight New York, Oct. 11—The Amer lean Hockey League enters the sports scene tonight when six of its ten teams will officially inaugurate the 1949-50 season, with games in Hershey, St. Louis and Cincinnati. Springfield will face Hershey as the Bears start their season, Pittsburgh will supply the opposition for St. Louis and Indianapolis will joion in the opening festivities as Cincinnati, making its debut in the AHL, opens the beautiful new arena on the banks of the Ohio. The following night, Buffalo which will compete in the Eastern Division this season, opens its home season with Indianapolis, with New Haven traveling to Providence, Cleveand to Springfield arid Hershey to Pittsburgh. Thus at the end o% the second night of play, all ten teams will have seen action. With a better balanced complement of teams this season, particularly in the Eastern Division, a much closer race for playoff positions is anticipated. The Western section, long noted for its tight finishes, (only three points separated the top four teams last season) is again expected to have its usual battle down to the final games. Now that Buffalo, always a strong Western contender has been transferred to the East, that half of the league will provide more rugged opposition for the defending Champion Providence Reds and the rest of the section. Thus both divisions should experience the thrills of a tight, close pennant fight. | Stengel To Return As Manager Of New York Yanks Next Year New York, Oct. 11—(UP)—Mgr. Ca^ey Stenpel of the world champion New York Yankees says he'll return next year as manager. But there's a question -whether two other managers, Burt Shotton and Joe McCarthy, will call it a day. Shotton's Dodgers won the Na- tionaJ League pennant but lost to the Yankees In the World Series. After the Series, Shotton was asked whether he would return next season. The gray-haired veteran refused comment. Shotton has said many times he'd like to return to his Florfca home. He wasn't too enthusiastic about taking over the Dodgers when Leo Durocher was suspended in 1947. Shotton is 64-years-old now and has been in professional baseball 41 years. Maybe that's enough for him. There's just as much mystery whether McCarthy will be back with the Boston Red Sox next year. Owner Tom Yawkey and General Manager Joe Cronin both have said McCarthy is free to return if he chooses. But, like Shotton,^ McCarthy may want to go home and take life easy. His Red Sox finished second in the American League after dropping two games to the Yankees the last two days of the season. "There's not much glory in finishing second," McCarthy told his team in the stretch drive. "The only place to finish is first." By Alan Mover HERMAN H/CKMAN.

PROBATE NOTICE Nips The Naugatuck High school junior varsity football team pushed over a third period touchdown and then held on to edge Shelton High's TV's, 7-6, at Recreation Field yes- erday afternoon. A pass from halfback Jimmy McCann to Billy Matos, which covered a total of 25 yards, gave the locals a first down on the Shelton 15 near the end of the third quarter. An attempted sweep of the left o.nd lost 13 yards for the locals, then McCann hit end Dick Monaghan with another pass on the five, 'nches short of a. first d«wn. "Deacon" Clisham picked up a first down on a quarterback sneak to the two and then scored on another quarterback sneak on the next play. McCann drop kicked the Rxtra point. Early in the final quarfer Shelton .intercepted a Naugatuck pass and drove from midfield to a score. The attempted placement for extra point was spoiled by a bad pass from center. Both teams made one more scoring threat in the final minutes of the game but could not push it over. Shelton missed a chance to score in the second period, when it drove all the way to the Naugatuck one- f oot line before losing the ball on downs. Peter Wapner, 16, of 4 Harvard avenue,, Shelton, a freshman halfback with the Seymour seconds, was injured In the third period of the game, dislocating his knee. He was treated by Dr. Edward R, Curran for a torn cartilage in the knee and removed to Griffin hospital Derby, by patrolman Joseph Far- rcn in the community ambulance. IAMOUS IN NIW INOIAND roi to YIARSI ItJtniH UtWINO CO. WIUIMANSOT. MAW. 12-6, entertaining under-do Swarthmore. The Cadets will journey to Kings Point, while hapless Connecticut will visit Maine and unbeaten Trinity -will invade Hobart. Arnold will travel to Wagner, New Haven Teachers will go against National Agriculture at Doylestown and New Britain Teachers will entertain New Bedford at home Friday night. Yale-Cornell Yale hopes to look even more imprsssive against unbeaten Cornell, in fact, it'll have to in order t.o turn the tide. The favored Big Red eleven has shown plenty of power so far this season. One department in which Yale should be stronger this week is points after touchdowns. The Dlis, who sorely miss ''Automatic" Billy Booe who graduated, failed on five conversion attempts in a row against Columbia. It is hoped hat Booe's successor; Joe Palmer, who was hospitalized Saturday because of illness, will be in shape this week. Wesleyan, which l-.asn't been beaten in three years on its home gridiron, is given a better-than- even chance of extending this streak. Swarthmore was unimpressive in losing its season's opener to Penn Military Academy, 28-0. The Wesmcn may be strengthened this week by the return of sophomore fullback Bill Hicks, who has been out with I shoulder injury. He will give the Cards some much needed weight in the backfield. TJ Conns Connecticut Is still trying to live up to its pre-season billing. The Huskies will have to come up with an offensive that clicks if they hope to down Maine. The Northerners demonstrated considerable power "last Saturday in beating New Hampshire, 25-13. In contrast, the UGonns were impotent both on the ground and in the air against Springfield. Trinity is stil! trying to catch its breath after running wild against Norwich, 71-0. The Hill- toppers will have another breather in which to do it since Hobart isn't expected to'put up much of a show. Coast Guard is given a fair chance of evening Its season's record at two wins and two losses at the expense of Kings Point. Giants Release Coach "Red" Kress New York, Oct. 11—(UP)—The New York baseball Giants have released Ralph "Red", Kress, coach with the ieam since 1946. Kress was a top shortstop in the American League for a dozen years, playing with the St. Louis Browns, Chicago White Sox, Wash ington Senators and Detroit Tigers been stopped .in forty-odd fights. He points out that he won the last time, tout a few weeks ago. and that he'ij determined to leave no doubt, if there actually was any, that he is the better fighter this time. Stung by reports that his was not a clear-cu't victory in view of the fact the Cuban featherweight champ had him in a bad way in two late rounds, Dunn has trained as he seldom has before. He la eager and ready to duel with the hard-hHting Havanan. Ready and confident he'll win. So sure that he has a bout lined uip in New York eight days away, his first invasion of the big-time, for it's at St. Nickte Arena, steppir^T-stone to tht Garden, that he's fighting-. Dunn wants this fourth straight victory for more reasons than one. He seeks an overweight match with Willie Pep and also challenges New England lightweight champ Jackie Weber to a title (Ig-ht. Acevedo won as -laie as lairt Friday, almost kayolng Charles (Cabey) Lewis in Providence. He's a killer when he has an opponent hurt and thinks he can stop Dunn again this tfme. Crowe Replaces Dawson As Coach Of Buffalo Bills Los Angeles, Oct. 11— (UP)—Tho Buffalo Bills of the All-America Football conference have a new head coach. He's Clem Crowe, the replacement for Lowell "Red" Dawson who was fired Sunday af- 'ter the Bills lost their fourth Conference game to the home-standing Los Angeles Dons. Right after the game, Club owner Jim Breuill walked into the dressing room and called Dawson into a corner. Breuill asked for Dawson's immediate resignation and got it. ,. Dawson, explaining his resignation' to newsmen, said, "we just couldn't agree." Before joining the pro ranks, Dawson was a backfleld ace at Tulane. After college he worked under Bernie Bierman at Minnesota. Later, Dawson went back to Tulane and coached the Green Wave for six years. He joined the Buffalo club when it was organized in 1946. Laist year Dawson won the Eastern Division championship but lost to Chicago, New York and Baltimore this season and (played a tie with the Conference Champion Cleveland Browns before yesterday's blowup. Laut year, Buffalo star George Ratterman and Dawson disagreed and a club announcement said its quarterback was demoted to the second string for "insubordination." However, there were no indications at the time that Dawson disagreed wl'th the management. Dawson'e successor, the fair- haired, tobacco chewing Crowe, learned his football at Notre Dame under Knute Rockne. He was one of the "Seven Mules" in the line that cleared the way for the "Four Horsemen." Crowe coached at Iowa before moving to the Bills in 1946 as line coach. He also coached at Notre Dame. St. Vincent's college in Pennsylvania, and Xavler college in Cincinnati. BUCKEYES BOWL-BOUND? - -By Alan Mavw Plaits Mills Beats P. 0.
