The place, the Yankee suullum. •That third gfiniu was the turning "'point of the championship battle between two great l«ams) — the • upcody, scrappy St. Louis Cardinals 'and the powerful New York Yankee.*. Cooper lugged hi* hat lo the plalc in the ninth, '.flic Cardinals Already had a two-lc-nothing lead. •Nobody was out. A Cardinal runner stood on every base. Before the- preceding batter stepped In, lii(! Yankee manager—Joe McCar- thy—hud called for u. collet pitcher.' He signalled to the bullpen, He called for Jim Turner—the old milkman. Jim tossed one more wnrnuip pitch to 'hisi catcher—and started in toward the mound. A guy of 3S walking Into a spat that called for. letter-perfect pitching. McCarthy wns depending on James Kllcy Turner in a game -that could mean n big step toward Ihc world championship.

Me was with Ihu Cincinnati Jtcds in 30-10 when llicy mot the Detroit Tigers. The Tipci's had won a-decision against Turner, Jim wasn't ruffled. He'd been around too long for that. 'Ho was cool and dclibcrati) as he look his warmup tosses. Walker Cooper stood' off to one side, waiting for the veteran .to get ready. Jim was ready., Ho'd, oeon. ready ever since he broke into jor Icnpucs with the Boston Braves in 1937. That was the year the Braves, ciimo up with a pair of 30- year-old pitchers— Mm Turner and Lou FuLtc.' Both liad spcixt years In the minors. They won 20 panics -that scuson.

ROLLER SKATING TONIGHT Lake Quassapaug Park cd 'lo the point' where'It is practical for use in balling practice, thus saving human arms for.pitch- ing' thai counts.' . - . ' .'.,.• A device for this purpose was first invented by Professor ' C"j,'H. Hinlon, and was !uscd on ".tlje Princeton baseball grounds June •S, 0 and 10,-1807. He 'hail originally intended to build a catapult pjlchcr biit found so many difficulties in Ihc plan lhat It was "finally abandoned. He then: '.invented a machine, .which m.nny called, the "baseball .cannon" Inasmuch as the propulsion for it was provided by gui. powder. It was Vol. out in the pitcher's box and the ball literally shot al. Ihc battc'r. This, however,' was not'as frightful as it sounds, for Prof. Hinlon hiul developed a way to the speed of the ball without 'a change in the amount of powder i'n Ihc caru-idgc. This was done .by shifting the position of Ihe breech. By an arrangement of fingers at. the end of the barrel .which gave' the ball the spin- necessary, it wit a possible . also with Prof. Hinlon.'s pitcher lo throw almost any kind of- a curve, and make it "break" just right. Despite the developments there were so many handicaps encountered that the mac'hlnc 'never became popular. It was'cumbersome. The -Idea of using .'gun: powder was nol appealing. It could not be op- crated fast enough. And it had 'a habit of gelling'out" of order. For many years after this original'ex- periment' there was litlle or no progress made in Ihe development of a pitching machine. Then the idea caught the fancy of a St. Louis 'banker, .Myron Mos- cr.
