(By United Pre8») The Phlklelphia fans that watched the Chicago Cuba play their Phillies Sunday saw a el'ub with a new surge of energy: The Quaker City fans who saw the Cubs earlier this season shook their heads. This doesn't look like the same bunch nt 'all. Something must have happened to them. Well, something has happened to those Cubs. And it' Isn't vltami pills, either—it's Charley Grimm Ever since the pjrinnlng Grimn came back to the Windy City tho.s Cubs 'have I'been playing hustlinf ball. And they've been brcokinf bettor than even under Grimm t pull out of tho cclfar on the way up to challenge for n spot in the firs I division. The first thlnR Grimm did was ;ret his pitching staff back in work inj; order. The Chicago hurlers hue been working out of turn—Iho; had begun to think that they jus couldn't win. ' " One trouble witfi the Cub pitching staff was the fact that big EC Hanyxcwski was ailing and was having trouble on' tho mound as a result. However, with a little nursing along cholly has brought Hany/.ew- ski along to the point where he Is one of the most effective pitchers In the league. ' ' ' And the banjo-playing manager has done an equally lino job on the rest of the Chicago pitching stalT. In fact he has dOno'suclV'a good job that the Cubs now are pushing the New York Giants for fourth place and expect to step into tho Hrst division before many more days. • Play At Waterbury Saturday Night POWERFUL FILM SHOWING NOW AT STRAND THEATER With it's powerful nimlzalion of Maxwell Anderson's celebrated iiHijio success "The Rve of St. Murk" hits brought to the. screen of the Straml theater, a motion picture that will always be remembered ns the fri'eatcst 1 emotional 'experience to. come out of this war. FatUrinK Anno Baxter,. William Kythe and Michael O'Shea: in a brilinnt case including Vincent Price, -Ruth Nelson and Ray Collins, "The Eve 'of St. Mark" is the war's greatest love story—the most understanding, searching drama of a soldieir's faith ever filmed. Here's the love story of 1 n 'G.- I. .foe wn have all bee.n waiting for. The story of his temptations and laughter, his dreams and his cour- nKe It's a man's story of fighting men in their Run-thunderinp hour of glory; a woman's story of pounding hearts in that last shining hour together So astonishingly f'"ir.k. and yet so tender—and so brim-t'ul of blood-stirring drama is this 'dim—it is that ras'c kind of motion picture entertainment that goes straight to your heart.' Inler- spursetl v.-iih lusty barrack's horseplay and umling with the emotion- shattering last sla'nd on Bataan, "Tho Eve of St. Mark" adds up to Ihc human .war drama to date.

He grinned and tabbed the Sunday home run he. hit against the Dodgers a "legitimate knock." When Questioned on the leglti mate phrase, Sanders grinned out the answer that it wasn't like a four-boll blow ho hit on the Dodgers last season. The Cardinal flrstsacker who leads both major leagues in runs batted in, recalled that he tried to duck out of the way of Max. Macon's pitch last" season. The ball his his bat and .accidentally plumped over the wall for a home run. BABY SUFFOCATED A blink of the eyelids takes about one-fortieth of a second.

They held a im lead at the lop of the -stand- igs with Philadelphia second, Connie Mack's Athletics—a proud team that had won the pennant i" 1905—could take the flag by winning those two games. The A's had a great defensive club. They had gi'eat pitchers—and they had h'ttlc brotherly love for tho Tigers' th'at day. But those scrapping, high-riding Detroitcrs didn't care much for the A's, or for the fans that packed the stands and overflowed onto the , field. Cobb was the llgntingest of the bunch. A hard-hitter, a fast, snarying demon 'on the bases.- A guy who didn't know whcn'to quit. 1 Wild Bill Donovan started thai game for the Tigers. Bill had nil the speed he needed—a good curve and most of all, plenty of heart. He, too, was a fighter. Six innings wont by—six happy innings for tho Philadelphia fans. They rocked the stands and sent echoes down to set tho liberty Bell quivering. For the A's had whacked 3111 Donovan like a run in tho Iflh. At the end of six innings the Athletics led seven to one. Jimmy Dygert started for the Athletics.- But he didn't get paat he second ir.ning. When the Tigers chased ono run across the plate, Connie Mack yar.ked 'Wygert and I ailed for Rube Waddell. The Rube ame in and showed the' Tigers a urve ball 'that could turn a corer. He stopped the rally. With the chips down the Tigers cached for more Cards and drew ces in tho seventh, Waddell came ut—and before he could draw a cop breath he had the bases loaded behind him. Then Sam Crawford drove an automatic two-bag- gor into the ropcd-off crowd for two runs, Cobb drove in one more, and a fourth scored before the inning was over. The Tigers had moved back into tho ball game. The score was 7 to !3. The A's promptly struck back with ono -run in their 'half of tho seventh. But 'the Tigers kept the ball rolling with one run in the eighth. The score was Philadelphia, 8, Detroit G, as they went into the ninth inning. RubeWaddoll faced Sam Crawford first. This time''these roundhouse curves didn't fool the Tiger center fielder. Sam singled, and Ty ^obb came up. Connie Mack looked down the ino to his bullpen. Eddie Plank MIS warming up. Mack looked back it Waddell and decided to go with he Rube a little longer. Mack van ted: to save Plank for the sec- nd game. Waddell stretched and- came own with the pitch. Cobb swung nd connected. He drove the' ball igh over the right field fence as 'ic crowd groaned. His team-mates rabbed him and cheered them- clves hoarse as he scored the ty- ig run. Mack yanked Waddell — throw Eddie Plank in. But the score was ed and it stayed tied. The game wont 17 innings—it ragged on so long that .they ever did get to play the secorid ame.

Pauline Betz Is Top Choice Ponte Verda, Florida, Aug. 1— (UP)—The Sport of Kings, is going to pick up in Florida during the coming winter ;xn<l- spring season. Florida's state racing commis sion h.'i.s announced that tracl dates ih.ivo been granted to thre Urni:k for a combined total of 12 1 days of racing. Gulf'Stream returns to the track picture for tho JVsl lime since the trt-ek wont into bankruptcy foui days after the Brand opening in 1039. And, of course, Hialeah and Trop. ieal Park again will operate. J^as winter these two tracks had a record-breaking scioson. All throe tracks expect to do a tremendous business n.s a result of thousands of servicemen who .will be stationed in the Florida area. The first track to open will be Gulf Stream which will operate from December 1st- to December 23rd and again from March 2Sth to April 19th. . Tropical PnrJc will opon on Decumber 25th and will operate until .tonuary ifitJi and xvii: have a spring meeting from Slarch 5th 'to M.irch 27th.

He won a two-hit 1 to 0 victory over the Indians. Gromnk, Cleveland's promising youngster, •had a no-hitter until the middle 01" the eighth. Then he lost in the ninth on faulty inficlding. The Philadelphia Athletics won | a-n overtime, 3 to 2 game from the I Chicago White Sox. Hurlers, "Pai.-ffi | Christopher, for file A's, and Orval Grove, for Chicago, allowed seven hits along the way. But Grove*weakened in the 10th inning and let through .1 single Philadelphia run—to break the deadlock. The St. Louis Browns nosed out ihc W;i-shin.gton Senators 3 to 2. Jack Kramer gave up 10 hits as he w;nt tho distance. But he ?<paced tiiom niecly. In the National league, pitchers Mi Vandenberg, of the Cubs, and l-'ritx., of the Pirates, turned in tig-ht performance.-;. Thu Bruins took the Philadel- j.'hia Phillies over th'e bump.-=v 5 to 1. behind Van denb erg's stingy lhiv?p hits. Vandonburg, ^usually a •relief hurler, got Manager Cbarlie Grimm to give him a chanc.-; as a starter and made good in a big \\viy. Big Bill Loe was hi? victim. At Boston Fritz Ostermucller, a 30-year major league veteran, set the Boston Braves down with two- bits, to give Pittsburgh a. 9 to 2 decision. Ostermueller hit safely three out of his four times at to help his cause along. And his teammate, Pete Coscarart, tallied a homer, a double- and a single. The ,N"cw York Giants, who arc teetering on the edge of the second division abyss, held tbeir precarious firs; division perch by beating the Cincinnati Reds, 9 to 7, in a night game.
