CONSERVE * DON'T WASTE * BUY MORE BONDS IIGHT& POWER C& THE CONNECTICU Old Cy Youn.g laid down his glove- nnd walked off the mount just before the 1012 baseball season opened. Cy decided he just couldn't take it any more. -After 12 years in the in-ajor leap-lies he was through. And what yours those were! He •r.amo from an Ohio farm to win 511 big league 'bull gamps for record 1 ' thai still stand's. In -those 22 scason-s Cy won 20 games or more in '36 Ncu.sons. And uvr: time he pushed hi.s victory total over .the 30-gnme mark. Over that stretch Cy turned in three no-hitters. Most big league pitchers go through tlieir entire careers without'clicking off one.of those jobs —but Cy.did it three ll'ines, and one of those was a perfect game—r.,ot a man reached base. Baseball was a tougher game then than it-is now. And Cy Young was equipped to handle himself. .He carried 190 pounds on his .six- fool-two frame when he broke in. And ho wa's a workhorse-. One summer ho ar.d George Cuppy teamed up to work every one of the Cleveland Indians' games over a 31-tlny si retch.. Second place- with a ni<:c chunk of prize money was at stake that year, So Cy Young pitched every other day with Cuppy taking ills turn. And they got thnt second place money for the Tribe. Cy developed liis iron arm on his farm in Ohio. Ho learned to throw' overhand by tossing rocks: at squirrels through the LI-L-CS. And finally some ot his neighbors told Cy to go on to Canton, Ohio, and -try lo get IL place on the Canton, team. Cy is 77 years old now. But he's nol ar. old man yet. There's still a iwinkls in his eye and a love of the game he played for so'many years. And when ho tells of the day in 1S90 when, he showed up to get Ill's first processional bfisc- ball job he- leans feack and smiles. Back on his littio Ohio farm Cy Young leans back and remembers that day. He got to Canton—just 1 a big farm boy—with a couple of his things tossod into a" paper bag.' And He lurrUed up the owner.-? of the Canton club—a couple of lawyers named Poro and Hunter. Cy told them he wanted to pitch for their team. They looked the big youngstcr ovcr. Finally Hunter told him that 'lo looked big enough, anyway.'And they sen-t him down to the ball j park for a tryout. That Canton team was a m'cm- h-jr of the old TriStiiiu league, T.hcy had a couple of renowned sluggers—John "Williams and • Robert Collins. When Cy got to Ihc pari: the two heavy hitters took the kid -aside. They told him to • loosen up. They decided' to show him what the hitting in that Tri- Suilc league was like. Cy just peeled off his jacket and started tossing a few pitches down, to a catcher. He worked easily for a couple of minutes. Add (hen he told the stars that he w;i:> ready lo show Ihem wh.-it he could do. Williams stepped up to the plate. .1-1-^ winked at -li'is partner as he prepared to show the farm -boy how it wus- done among Lhc professionals. But four or f-ivc pitches later lie wasn't smilng. Williams hadn't been able to get Ms bat or. the ball. Then Collins moved in, Cy ju-7 wound up and -blitzed a ball ii —he wasn't throwing anything but fast balls. By the time Collins got t.he hut off his shoulder the ball had hit' another kind of wood—the gTctnds-tand. Kvery pitch that :Young threw broexed right by and -hit the grand- sta-nd. And every onn of them splil a plank in the stand. Finally the sweating veterans called it off, They told the club owners: "Sign, that kod." Young Mr. Denton T, Young had done more damage to the stand than a cyclone—'so they called him Cy— and launched him • on one of the greatest pitching careers in. history.

Park last night. The shortage of golf balls .at the Hop' Brook club is becoming serious, Lrfis't Sunday, during the St. -jinnis' 1 t'ournamen;., it wus necessary to parcel out balls one to -*i person. The rapid increase in playing interest in the community bids I fair to make August and September outstanding in the goli' played here. fn Jinc with the spirit of cooperation pervading the management of Ihc course at the present lime, all local residents are being called upon to assist in relieving the shortage.

The 71-year- old comptroller of customs at Bos- .on died of'Pneumonia at his Kox- oury home this morning after a two-month illness. For some weeks Tohn Curley was reported improv- ng but he suffered a relapse last Sunday, Congressman Curley was •cported traveling home for the uncral from an army camp in Oklahoma.

This probability wiis advanced by Hugo Goldsmith, an olllcial of a Cincinnati athletic goods ilrm, who pointed out the raiders will be industry antl the victims of its designs will bo college nnd high school campuses, where coaches, athletic directors nnd star college athletes, winding up their careers, will aeci'pl the industrial bait. The "bait," Goldsmith declared. will !.H! career jobs ns industrial recreation leaders and or personal •directors — jolis which will appeal to coaches, athletic directors and coaching-minded athletes, since they will provide opportunity to continue on in athletic work at attractive salaries, with possible future executive positions, depending upon ability. "Recreation has made tremendous strides in industry over the post five years and it will have an -oven more imporlant place in Ihc postwar era, when shorter working days create more leisure time for workers and business executives," Goldsmith said. .."Ac- livilics of a competitive athletic nature arc forming the li.-ickbonc of these industrial recreation programs. since the latest -thinking is that all of us should Ond leisure lime , activity thai will promote physical fitness and develop a competitive spirit." Athletic directors, coaches and athletes, generally speaking, are well suited to direct recreation programs because of their experience or. athletic llckls. Goldsmith added. In addition, he said, there is a certain amount of glamor or hero- worship attached to '..hese fellows, which makes them respected leaders. . However, it was explained, athletic background rtlone does not make a. recreation leader. Athletic men 'aspiring to these jobs must be 'pretty good psychologists; they must be schooled in industrial relations; they must, be ready to provide all types of recreational activities for men and women, and they must be able to take their places in industry as a liaison between management jyiti workers, utilizing' their recreational • programs- as. instruments of industrial good will. They must 'have, the all-. around qualities of 'a- good exccu-' live.' " ' . Ycsl onlay's K<;Nlllts Bo'ston. 9, Cincinnati 2 (1st). Cincinnati S, Boston C (2d). Pittsburgh 0. New York 0.

Manager Hanson's argument in favor of obtaining such results is that in all probability at the end of the war, next, year's golf b;tl!s will be superior to those being made at the present time. Golfers will not want to be caught with a. supply of re-covered balls on --heir hands. In ndditioii, any now golf balls are approximately two years old ,*is no new golf balls have been made for tbc lost two or three years. These balls .-ilso lose their resiliency and would not compare with the new and probably improved golf ball that will be made immediately following the end of the war. In view of a.11 the conditions stated, residents of the community arc asked to turn their balls in ;o the club where in turn they will be made available for re-sale to our cilizuns who are at present playing tbc Hop Brook Course. the sixth.
