Bucky managed tlie \V<i.ihingtor. Send tors. And in that spring fain- ing season he spent :i good deal of his time let.tinir the baseball writers with his club know how good a youngster Sid Hudson was. Eucky had gone overboard for rookies before only to see them fold up noisily when they started throwing to American league batters. Ami this Kid Hudson was, making one of the biggest jumps in the gume-• 1'rorn a class "13" minor league to I!;'-- top of the pyramid. Hudson {.-pent ]P.".9 with the Sunford club of the Florida -State lenguc. Sid won 2-1 hull games down there —but it was still class "D" hall no matter how you sliced Jt. In the Senator's training camp the watchers started to get a line on Sid. They noticed that, the Kid was a great fielding pitcher. He hue! a good curve--though other Senator taught him really helped Sid that day. Inning after inning passed without a base hit for the Browns. Through tlie early and middle stages of lift' game the St. Louis lans cheered their team on — rooted fen 1 an outburst that, would drive Hudson from the mound and win the Kame for the Brownies. But when they came past the seventh inning, and then the eighth, it was quieter in One stands. Sid Hudson had" a no-hitter out there and :i baseball proverb as old. as the first horsehlde says that It's bad. luck to tell a pitcher that he's working on a no-hitter. V.'he.-i the Browns came up for their turn at bat in the lust half ol' the ninth the pressure doubled am! re-doubiod on the youny Washington pitcher. The Senators lud one to nothing. And Sid had to face thy meat end of the IJrownie batting order — the heavy hitters of the St. Louis squad. Sid | didn't know he had just three outs ' in go for a no-hitter. He thought Boro Open Tourney Qualifying Bill Johnson To Be Honored Tonight At Wtby.

Sid jerked upright. He looked cool as he faced Rip Rtidoliffe but Kip jumped or. the pitch and belted it down the left Held line for a two-briber. Sid breathed a little easier.

Every day Eucky Harris became more enthusiaMic about Hudson's possibilities. He unnouneed thnt Sid was going to be one of his starting pitchers when thc season opened. And Kucky followed through with that promise. Sud Hudson took his turn with the other'Semi- tor starters, but for awhile It seempcl that .Harris had hrought another hothouse ace to fade in the north.. Sid lost ;i scried of tough ones and some that were just plfiin b:i(l beating.-:. But Harris stayei: with his young pitcher. He didn't quit on him and Sid picked'up tips from older members of the Senator staff. Sid learned one important trick from venerable Ted Lyons of the Chicago White Sox. Late in June, while the Senators played the White Sox. Lyons gave thc rookie some advice on how to conceal his change of pace. Shortly fiftnr that the Senators moved into St, Ixjuls to meet the Crowns. It was Jus: 21st when Sid Hudson took his turn against the Browii- at the plate. Now the fans roared back into vocal action, They wanted some quick hits—some quiets runs—thc knockout blow. But yelling could Baseball fans in this area will be out 100 per cent strong tonight to honor Bill Johnson, former New York Yankee World Series hero, who will make his final appearance with thc local Watcrbury Brasscos at the Stadium. Johnson one of the most liked players ever to perform in these parts will be the guest of honor.

Aug. 26—(UP)—A municipal court judRC in Boston criti- 'cizes the plan of a Maine judge to have teen-ape jurors sit on juvenile delinquency crises. Judg'e Elijah Adlow says that the idea is "ridiculous." He thinks that the 'use oC teen-ace juries "is cncum- bci'injr the sadly-complicated problem with local ornaments and is making: justice ridiculous." The juvenile jury plan was evolved by Municipal Judge Adrian A. Cote of Lcwiston, -Maine, in an effort to make the punishment fit the crime in juvenile delinquency cases. ." 36 and after a pro layoff of six seasons, ThcBror.k—he was christened Brnoco—had played with the old-time Bears, the Bears ofBrtim- bauph. Ronzani, Grange, Feathers, Mastorso:i—the original power boys. Football writers always hollered for col.or when writing about the Bronx. That was the one thing ho lacked — for Nagurski was a silent man on nnd off the field. Reports once maintained that he said only SOO words, and belched twice, din-fug all of his seasons'. Nagurksi quit pro football seven years :>go and tried professional wrestling. The Bronk just naturally introduced a few new grips in this racket, such as the' flying drop kick and other football innovations. He was accused of being .the world's heavyweight champ at one time, a title as common us a dirty white shirt. , But now he's back where he belongs. For Nagurski and Willie Hcsto nand Red Grange and Indian Jim Thorpe form most of the nll-ti meAll-American teams, the myth clubs. Nagurski is back, not as a fullback— but as a college coach way out in California, far n.wny from the blustering Chicngo Bears and the Vikings of Minnesota University.
