Watcrtown — Ni«iB«tucfc Mlildli-liurv "BATHING BEAUTY" IS THE LEAD NOW AT THE STRAND Music to be seen as well as heard. That's what Harry James delivers in his current screen stint in "Pint hint' Beauty," now at the Strand theater. The •tun,d-spanK!ed Mctro-Gold r wyn-Mayer Technicolor comedy, and starring Rod Skelton and R.ithor Williams, introduces visual music. James find his musicians furnish music for an elaborate water ballet featuring Esther Williams and thirty-two afiuacuties. As the rythms of the music chfingo from sweet to hot, lighting effects within the swimming pool itself change color to harmonize with the mood of the melodies, .lames begins the sequence with hlmw rhythms behind a blue foro- gi-ound. As the music grows hotter, the lights take an incandescent hue of red and orange. The water nymphs are battled in torrid lights line] sound. This innovation was created by John Murray Anderson, New York mage director, specially signed by M-G-M to direct the water ballet sequence. Also In the star-studded cast of "Bathing Beauty" are -Bill Goodwin, of radio fame. Ethel Smith, the lithel Smith, the Hit Parade organist who makes her screen debut, Donald Meek and Xavier Cugat and his orchestra. The co-feature on the current Strand program is "Port of Forty Thieves,' f a a 11; r i n g Stephanie Bachelor and Richard Powers. Latest Pox Movietone News flashes are also a part of this Strand bill which will run through Thursday.

Big ' • William : 'Played With Bad Leg And Lost Three Out Of Five Sets In thu twilig-ht of his career, Big Bill Tllden has many thrilling ten- nii- memories. Undoubtedly, his iriind goes back often to September 16tli, 1920, Tllden was the lncumbe.nt national singles champion and' had gone to the scmi-finul round, in the 192t> tournament. • That day Bill'was 1 scheduled" to pluy Henri Coohet—-a umnll, fast Fre.ivch' player who was well known as a speed demon. Tildc-n almost -'had been forced to drop out-'of the tournament because of a badly bruised knee. Ha had been .injured -the previous week in a match with Rene La Coste. But the grit and determination that had made Tilde-m a champion would not let 'him quit. Ho looked confident as ho walked out onto the famous middle court at Forrest Hills. Bill 1 -stood over Cochef like the Rock of Gibraltar and looked like a tower of sti'L-ngth. But the crowd didn't know that Bill wasn't going to be 'aible to use his murderous cross-court long- shots because he was afraid toi put too much, strain on hla leg. He kivow Mint he couldn't give 'Ills leg- the kind of treatment he usually gave it when '-he was playing his hardest .brand of tennis. Howjver. nt the same .'time. Tilden was one of • the ismarleaf. ten- players in die world -and'he was counting a- lot on his craJti- nt'Ss on the eoirrt. . . Big Bi}l was lucky 'In the first set when Cachet elected to play the tack-line and- try to outmaneuver the -master. Tildcn -ncve-r met a man who could- beat hhn at that game. Time after time the long-, the lanky -American would--shoot -a bail to one corner or another and find Coohet going .the other, way. Thus, Tllden managed to take the first set without much trouble. .. • .- . In the second set, Cochet, seeing that Tildcn- was tiring, began to play a close, fast net game. Tildcn couldnt get around fast enough to shoot his-.long power drives past the little man. Cochet made Big Bill look like -a college player as he set him down in that set. ' • -. • The third set was faster and much closer. Tllden came to life and fought through long, hard session. Tilden ivas pushing, and pushing hard, as he tried desperately to take the set. But Cochet hung on gamely and outlasted the tall American. The drive took most .of the steam out of Cochet and he was a tired player when the fourth set began. He held a two-to-one-Ret advantage,over Tllden, but he wasn't stepping around the. court as fast as he did earlier in the match. Tilden won the fourth set. As the llnal set got underway the fans couldnt decide . what -to think about Tilden. He had looked brilliant in winning the fourth set, but he was in and out during the early part of the deciding set. The act rocked back and forth as first one, then the other .player burst forth with enough speed and skill to win a. game. Finally the set stood nt six-all and the fans edged closer to the edge of their scats. Tild«n was serving. He aced the Frenchman three times—then lost a point. With the score at forty-fifteen Cochet must hvae gotten his second wind. He suddenly whipped back with four straight points to win the game and go ahead. Ten thousand people stared and wondered if Tildcn could come back. Sadly they got their answer as Big Bill wilted and lost the next game and the match. Big Bill Tllden had made his best—and last stand—on the amateur tennis court. W. L. Pet. 02 42 .590 AMKBIC'AN tKAGUE No games yesterday.

In a little" moj-c than a week's time, they increased their lead from '2 3-2 games to 0 1-2 games. _ L.-ist night we decided to sec how Ked Hermans felt about the matter. when, prior to the start ,of the major ' league season ] spring, v.-e' picked the Browns and the Cardina.13 to play in the world scries this October, with the Browns lakinjf the world crown after six contests. Yes, Red really tore into us then. And Red hasn't subsided one little bit since, for last night he gave us another terrible rajjginjj. We saw Red first and in a triumphant manner we breezed up alongside the redhead. "Hello, Red," we said. "How do you like the Browns?" "Co 'way, brother, go a—way," Die redhead said. "Ho, ho," we said, "you can't take it. Afraid to admit you arc wrong." ".My Rood friend," the crimson- haired personage said, "the Browns come east this week and they will play 22 games, starting with the Yanks Wednesday. TJiey will also meet the Red Sox, and if Uiny .ire in llrsl place when Ihoy start their homeward trek after the Yanks and Red Sox are through with them, I'll eat raw oysters. And you know J can't stand them." That was quite a statement for the redhead to make. "Moreover," the russet-top added,' "the Senators are' going to come back after that four-straight thcv lost in St. Looey. And 3ook what the Athletics did to the t".-inks Saturday. They aren't gonna be pushovers. Heck, after this trip, the Browns will probably farm out Kramer, Caster, and Jacucki, and sell Muncrief to the Dodogers." "Let's go for a beer, Red," we cut in. "Furthermore, as soon as a couple of good pitchers tic up those Brownie 'sluggers.' with Stephens the only .300 hitter, they'll be lucky to end tip'eighth. Why, they may even wind up behind the Dodgers, and they are in an- Rado Gives Up 6 Hits On First Trip On Mound After Navy Discharge U. S.
