By. BERNARD BRENNER . United Preii Sporti* Wr.ltcr . Tommy Bridges always has been tough 1 to'hit- when the clilpS arc down. Tho Detroit' hurler' has nerves to match his pitching style' —he's cool and cmfty. But he ran into a real test one fa41 afternoon In.'1935. Tommy helped pitch the Detroit Tigers to an American league pennant that year. In the National league, the Cubs came through to join tne Bengals in the world (series. Bill McGoweni was umpiring in. that series. He'd been wearing the blue for 13 years—three of them in the American league. -But even Bill was tense and jumpy through that scries. With thousands of dollars riding on every pitch—on every slide—- Bill and the other iimp.H knew they had to do a perfect job. Everyone in. the series feels that way—the managers, the players, even the bat boy. McGowan says that when a -ballplayer tells you the big show is- just another set of ball games—well, he's wandering from the truth. Tho umpire points to the BJxth game of the 1935 'scries to prove his point. That sixth game was played in Detroit. The teams came back from Chicago with the Tigers one up—three games to two. The scrle i-ould b2 tied with that sixth gam —or it could be won. The packe stands waited for -.he game to b gin on Oct. 7th. Tommy Bridget, pitched for Di troit. When you boi'led thing down, it had to be Tommy. Schoo boy Rowc was younger and fastu But the Cubs had beate.m Row twice in the scries—the last tim just the day before. Tommy, on tho other hand, IKI trimmed tho Chicago crew hi only time out. In any Tom my wu-3 Manager Mickey Cocii rail's "Sunday pitcher." He w,-i the ace in tho ho'.o. The guy go along with in: the clutch. ' For the Cubs it w<is Lnrr French—a lefthander—ant! a goo one. But the Tigers proved tha ho could be hit in the first inning Manager Mike Cochranc singled— the flawless Charley Gehrir.gcr sin glcd behind him—and then Pet Fox doubled to score Coch'rar.e pulled together then, an. got out of the ir.,ning without an more trouble. But the Tigc.-s ha. a one-run lead. The Cubs camo back in the thir to demonstrate that Bridges' wa no Super-man cither. A couple o b-V;C hits and the score was t at one-all. Then the fourth-—Gee Walke singled for the Tig-*rs and workcc his way around on infield play nnd a single by Billy Rogell. On.; more the Tigers stood one up— This 'time, at two-to-ona. For the moment the Tiger fans relaxed—but not for long. Tha ball' game was too full of thrilb and tension. The Cubs came, to ba in the :':fth. Larry French singled—ar.d he roosted there on first base as Bil Herman stepped up. Herman, tin Chicago second baseman, upset the apple cart by blasting tho apple high' in the left field bleachers. Thai put the Cubs ahead three to two—and once more the Tigei fans hollered for runs. The Tigers gave them one. That slam-bang battle en me to electric white heat in the sixth. Billy Rogell doubled and crossed the plate on a single,To make the story-book picture complete, neither team scored in the seventh or eighth. The 'Cubs came to bat in the ninth and something in the air said "now's tho time. This is the inning" Third Baseman ' Stan Hack waded into a fast one. Before the ball was back in the infield, Stan was on third—and nobody out, A fly would score tho winning run. Umpire McGowan.'. says he expected to sec some good pitching from Bridges. • But he got more than he bargained for. Tommy hitched up his belt and turned loose a scries of curves that topped anything he had thrown before:Tommy rose to that challenge ike a champion. He fanned .Billy J urges .

St> Francis Xavier Fall§ Victim To Local Sluggers This V That By DUKE KAJttAUSKAS (AliurlK Editor) *••••••• We learned the other day that the Watcrbury Industrial Recreation A.-sociation, that wonderful little organisation that keeps industry in this area, working- along together so smoothly through it«. alhljtic program, had appropriated $30 to tne Water-bury Tool Co. to help defray tra.nsportatiom expenses- to .and from, where the state Softball tournament started la-st Sunday. True, there is nothing wrong in granting the Tool Co. that sum of i money but why do it when the U. S. Rubber Co.. also picked by th(; committee to participate in the tourney, wasn't given a cent. The claim, we hear, is thai the Tool was the official league representative in the tournament, since it was in first place toy hall a game at the time entries were closed. But. here's what we don't like—why' bother to pick a second team for the tournament if the JHA looks upon it as a. prodigal son and does not give it any support. The gentlemen, w.h o. compose the IRA. have acted in a strange manner before, so this 3o-tosT j:t- tle thing should not create -so much co.iccr.-2. Usually tho cry goes up that the L". S. Rubber is looking for something for nothing, thereby aJionating the locals from good sportsmanship on the part of other clubs. But the IRA has not always had its u-oubles. with Die U. S. Rubber — there was-tile time once that they had a little refarce trouble, and were so hard up that they even sought men who had reputations for being referees but had not been before Ule state ooard. Fortunatey, the IRA commission got off its high dictatorial horse and agreed to havir.g two referees at each ball game, filling- neatly the requests of the game officials. There was always a row, it has been reported, every time the selection of referees came up, ar.d the IRA, which apparently draws its initials from ;he word "irate" or since we didn't go to school, "ir- riUiting," always .had its way. A.nd so is, was again, this time. The minutes from the meeting it which the two clubs were designated for the tournamor.x stated that two teams wore selected, and al--o that an appropriation was made to the Waterbupry Tool' Co. squad. Oh, well,' maybe it's the heat, because many a thing _ has been blamed on. the heat. But we ihinic that the IRA will never get out of its rut, until there are some changes nitide. Narducci And Healy Share Mound "Duties—Give Up Four Hits St. Francis defeated Si. Francis Xavier of. Waterbury In a CYO league g-amc last .night. T>-Z. T!io locals built up an cnrly 3-1 !oad which they added to In tTic fifth frame to take the ball game.

Vin Healy replaced him. and proceeded, to strike out the last two cacn. and put out the fire.
