This 'n' That 5 By t DUKE KA'/LAUSKAS (Sports Kditur) U. S. Rubber Wins IRA Golf Tpurney At East Mt Course ODT Plans Ban On Travel To St. loo \Vashington, Aug. 21 — (UP)— Officials of the Transportation arc considerin vent a heavy Office of Defense comfirmed that measures to pre- travel flow to the probable all-St. Lours World Series. A spokesman said 'that tile O-DT will nurke an official request of both St. Louis major league loams, — asking them to limit World Series ticket ^ales to legitimate residents of the city and section,' Tlie spokesman continued: "[f the Browns -win In the Ame'r- ican league and keep the series in St. Loui-, it will go a long way toward helping in the acute transportation problem." Xo special trains or .cars for the scries — that's another O-D-T regulation for the 19-M scries, If :et for St. Louis. Applications for travel reservations to the Missouri town— baseball stronghold of the yoar — will be accepted only 2'1 hours in advance. The U. S. Rubber Co. won the first annual IRA golf team championship at a tournament held at the East Mountain golf course 'in Waterbury yesterday. The Rubco team posted a score of. 31-1, beating American Brass which was second by nine strokes. Gus Klimaszewski 70 was the best score for 18 holes. Chct Wok- jack had an 80, Henry Cieslewskl, TO, and Joe Wujcik, S3 — 314 Rubber strikes. Chase, a pro-tourney favorite had a team score of 332, to finish in third place. Waterbury Tool finished fourth with 340. Petroleum reserves of the U. S. were estimated at IS billion barrels, according to the national resources planning commission. Wo hear Navy and Marine trainees at Pennsylvania State collage ure learning a new game. It's a combination' of basketball and boxing, and tho new sport helps teach the rookie .sailors and leathernecks how to bake care oE themselves. The game lias -no name yet—and perhaps that'^ just a swell. It's hard to imagine ci basketball game with ail the players wearing boxing gloves. And every time some ambitious fellow tries to loop the ball in for a goal his nearest op^ poncnt is authorized to let him have a good -stiff right to the jaw. If this murderous .version of the oo'ort game doesn't teach the boys to Like care of themselves—or at last to 'take a punch in tlie mouth clicking gracefully—nothing will. Athletic Director Harry Light— a r.ayal lieutenant—says .the train- cei iiko the game. He found the shoot-and-slug version ' of basketball' played widely in middle-west and western training centers. Tile rules provide that any man who tries to dribble or shoot for the bit.iket is eligibcl for a swat in the toeth. Occasionally the boys got so interested in the game that nobody pays any attenqtion -to the basketball for. ai moment or two. Lieutenant Light fays—very con- vorsatively—that tho competition can be both gruelling and . instructive. We sec whore Gundor Hang ancl Arr.c Anderson, the swift Swedes, ran a race tho other day without making any new record, except for the record made in not making any new records. It was a 1500 meter run w.hlch Anderson won... U. S. Rubber is pretty hot in athletics this year—tho basketball championship, a pretty good chance of winning the Softball league, and annexing the four man golf team crown yesterday.. .The CAL finally came to an end.yester- day. Hero's ihoping 'for a bigger and better league next year. By BERNARD BREN.NKK United I'ross Sport.s Staff There's always an extra kick in Pet. tile story of an old-timer in any sport. The veterans "who hold back .!JSO the curtain of time and play with 71 the champions make fascinating .•1GS stories .440 Ger.e S a r a. •/. e r.— the country .40-1 squire from Connecticut— hai; a .400 place among those veterans who .3SS hung on long after their active sports lives should have cndud. Gone in his familiar knickers-— the stocl<y hdngovr from the days of Bobby Jor.-os and Harry Vardon —Has furnished golf history with some of its most thrilling cha,p- tcrs. Gene's name first rang around the golfing world in 1922 when he won the United States open championship over the Skokio course near Chicago. They sane his praises loudly tbcn—they called Gene's stretch drive in tho open one of the most courageous spurts of golf ever played. After that the years and the honors pi)c-c! up on L!IC man from Connoci-icui:, Not all the yenrrf brought glory :.o Sni<.v/.or.. He ran into a long .stretch o:' lean ones, and they culled him a has boon. But he blasted his wr.y back to the top in 1932 with another open victory. Once again Gone Sar.oaon did it. with an nmai'.ing exhibition of coolness and accuracy' that brought him up from behind to win. Then tho parade of years started again -•• years without victories or titles. By 13-10 Sarazon was -.1 has-been again to most golf followers. An old man of 3S who hacl lost the touch. In June of 1940 Gene went into the National Open ngain. This time it was at Cleveland's Oar.tcrbury Country club, Saracen's game wa.5 ngain. But Lawson Little was riding roughshod' over the field that year. And through the first throe rounds Sarazcn was pressing hard to keep close to the younger ace, The Connecticut .squire was a tired out there in the last round. A thunderstorm rattled around over Uv,> lough Canterbury course. Frank Walsh held a brief one-stroke lead over Little aB they went into the last round—and or..-j strike behind, little G-enc Snraxcn started out on the first nine holes. The dull grey afternoon sky glowered down 1 on the weary veteran and tho barrages of thunder boomed down at him. The par makers said that 36"'strok-'S should bo enough for the first nine. But Gene'couldn't make i-t. He came off the ninth groan with a. two-over-par 38. ,. Mear.iWhile ' Walsh had cracked and dropped- completely oui. of the r.ino: But Little moved along like a golfing machine—iie turned in a neat 30—and then just nine holes remained to be p'.ayed. Little had a four-stroke lead over Gene Sara- xcn. Little started the round before Gone did—and he went on to finish before Gene. Sarazen drove his ball from the tenth tee ;LS Little's final score went up on' the board. One of Gene's friends camo to him then. He told Sarozen: "You've got to do it in 34 strokes to tie—and you can do it." From somewhere Gene S.iraKcn drew a new supply of strength a n«d determination. That cocky swajrger came back — .the stool came back into his arms and legs —the white flame of competition burned again inside him. Once more Gone Sarazcn showed them how ho had don« it at Sko- kic back in 1332—he showed them the spirit -that had carried him through his comeback in 1932 — he come back to life with the skill he showed at the master's tournament at -A'ugusto. ' in 1936. G-onc brushed off the years as though they hadn't rolled by at all and went after that 34. took tho tenth hole in par. He knocked one stroke off par on the eleventh. And: he stormed down t,hose remaining holes with needle-threading drives and iron shots that bounced toward the cup like homing pigeons. One by one ho racked up the •scores ho needed. Then on the .-•eventeenth hole came that. ' one lough break. Gene's d'rive went off to tho rig-Jit—into the rou.irb. He pitched out all right—but tlie ball rolled 25 lon-g feet past the cup. That hurt. Gone called for his old rickety putting clock—a relic of Uie iSSO's, Then patchcd-up old putter had seer, service in many tight spots through the yeai-5 — it had played against Many Vnrdon long ago. And when Gene lined up that 25- footer those two old-timers—the •golfer and his club — worked together Sarazcii tapped the b.tll and it rolled straight and slow toward the cup And then tho gallery gasped as the ball dropped in. That almost-impossible putt grave the squire liis par -and he wont on to tic Little for tho chani- ! pionshp, and throw tho title into a I playoff. Gene had missed a'hun- dred ton foot putts before But when he needed the 25 footer J'.e dropped it. Ho had it when it counted. Tho Washington Senators ruined all the form charts yesterday, scoring, a two-game defeat over "the league-loading St. Louis Browns— a.nd reducing the - Missourians margin to just three and a half (fames. Washington collected 20 hits in extending, the Brownie losing .streak to four games, the longest of the year. Second-place Boston won n pair from the Cleveland Indians, taking the first on. home runs by George Mctkovich und Jim Tabor and the second a pitcher's win for young Rex Cecil. Detroit improved its thirfl-place position with two wins v over the defending champion New York Yankees. In the second, Dizzy Trout gained his 20th win of the year. Joe Hoover singled with Ihe^ bases packed in the opener — to givej ,the Tigers a 4 to 3 edge. Trout 'helped win his own game- in the finale, his home run supplying the 9 lo 8 margin. Chicago won a 3 to 2 game .from the Philadelphia Athletics, before dropping an S to 3 contest. The A's made things simple for Luke Hamlin in the second, knocking Ed Popat and Jake Wade for 11 hits. The New York Giants finally broke their losing streak- — after it reached 13 straight. The Giants Pauline Betz Wins Mass.

Hard luck rooki<: Bill Vofsellc pitched a five hitter for New York in the second, winning his ]3t.h gamo. The St. Louis Cardinals scored IS runs in fivo innings to cb.-jLKt to a IB to S opening victory against the Boston TSraves. But they cooled fast and Boston took the second, 5 lo 3 as Woody Rich held St. 7ix3uis to nin<> hits. Ted Wllks, th<; loading percentage pitcher in the majors, •was credited with his ninth straight win' In thc'flrsl game for St. Louis. Brooklyn looked like Brooklyn, losing two games to the Pittsburgh Pirntes. Manager Leo Durocher, still under a suspension, directed the team from a. box seat. Jim Russell featured the first game for the Pirates, knocking a four-run homer. Whit Wyatl made his first Brook start since the rest for his tired arm—and looked just the same, granting three runs in tho first inning. Eucky Wallers pitched and batted to his ISlh win of the year as Cincinnati beat Philadelphia 2 to 1 in 12 innings. Philadelphia took the r;i,7htc.ip behind Charley Schanz, •i to 1.
