WTIC-WEAF—News: Stories "GREENWICH VILLAGE"CURRENT LEAD AT LOEWS POLI HELEN TRAUBEL * TONIGHT AT 9 WT WEAF "THE TELEPHONE HOUR' GREAT ARTIST SERIES Reaching back Into colorful post World War I's "roaring 20V for Its plot a n d musical • setting, "Greenwich Village." the newest Technicolor hit, has still four days left at the Locw Poli theater. With Carmen Miranda, William Bendix, Don Amoche and Vivian Elaine, "The Cherry Blonde" involved in its tuneful story, "Greenwich Village" rolls back 20 years to the riotous hey-day of America's world famous artists colony. In "Greenwich Village," Don Ameche. most recently seen In "Heaven Car. Wait," essays another intriguing role as a young composer who came out of Kansas to win a reputation in the Arabian Nights atmsophore of Greenwich Village. Opposite Don is a new musical "discovery" whom 20th Century- Fox has slated for musical stardom— red-headed Vivian Elaine, "The Cherry Blonde." makes her bow as Dor.'s leading lady, and sings three new hits which everyone is raving about. She sure will step up in stardom for herself in the good work she has done in this musical treat. "Greenwich Village" provides Carmen Miranda with her first role since "The Gang's All Here." and her subsequent critical illness. It offers her increasing opportunity to display her newly discovered talents as a comedienne and provides her with songs streamlined to her unique singing, dancing, interpretations. "Greenwich Village" was directed by Walter Lang and produced by William LeBaron, Hit tune- smiths Leo Rubin and Naclo Herb Brown— teamed for the first time — have produced a scintillating score of new hit song's for the picture. The co-hit on this hit program is "Three Little Sisters" with Ruth Terry nnd Mary Lee. Waterbury Tool, U.S. Rubber Softball Pla Brasscos Defeat Black Yankees In Final Night Tilt Grabeck Gives Slugging Visitors Nine Hits; Johnson Feted '...,. BY AL BREWER Fred Davl's Watcrbury Brasscos had their hitting togs on Saturday night as they soundly trounced the Black Yankees of the National Negro league, 16-5, behind the masterful pitching of Sailor Ted Grabeck, of the Watcrbury City league. This was the Brasscos fourth straight win. Grabeck, although reached for nine hits, was' never In danger, as his mates went into the lead in the second inning on Howie Hack's homer, successive singles by Binkoski, Grabeck and Rchla, with a walk to Slim McWeency sandwiched in between to give" them three runs. * The Black Yankees held a 1-0 lead after two were -out In the llrst chuckcr on doubles by Christopher and Barker. Grabeck struck out Shorty* Baker to end the first inning and shut the visitors out without a hit until the sixth when two errors and a single gave the Negro lads two runs, Singles by Willso'n and Hardy, a double by Barker, the Yankees hitting star, gave them their final tally in the seventh. The Davimcn went to town in the fourth when no loss than thirteen men batted for the Brasscos driving "Pop" Rector, Black Yankees' starting pitcher 'from the hill. Rufus Barker took over but could not hold the Brasscos in check. Two errors by Hardy and singles by Hack and Blnkoski gave the locals their four markers in the fifth. . 4 In the final Brasscos frame on- Bill Johnson's last trip to the plate Manager Fred Davi. of Naugatuck called time and presented Johnson, former World Scries hero with a handsome wallet and pui-se for his excellent play with the locals this summer.

Nap Lajoie held two jobs with the Cleveland club in the American league in 1909. But before snow fell on the Ohio city again the great second baseman had only one job left. Nap had become the manager of the team— : and the fans called his club the Naps, And Lajoie also did one of the greatest second base jobsv of all time.for his club. But he couldn't play all nine positions, and the rest of his team didn't measure up -to the great old timer. Cleveland missed the bofct In 'a I three-cornered pennant fighi. with'I the Detroit Tigers and Chicago j White Sox In 1908. The Tigers won j that time witn the help of a scrappy young outfielder named Ty Cobb. And in 1909 the Cleveland team just seemed to go to pieces. Ljaoic was still a great second baseman—the best in the business. But he was unhappy about his other job — he didn't want to be manager, and he blamed himself for the'team's failure. Finally he resigned. Nap thought the best thing to do would be to leave the team entirely, but he was persuaded to stay on us a player. A rugged coach — Deacon Jim Mc- Guirc—took over as pilot. Then came the 1910 season, and a battle for the batting championship that gripped the fans just as much as the pennant races. In one corner—Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers. And swinging a big bat or. the' other side was Napoleon Lajoie of the Cleveland Naps. In the early days of the season Cobb jumped off to a quick lead in the percentage column. The : high-riding Detroit slugger plas- I tcrcd hits all over the league as his" spikes flashed ai-our.d the base | paths. j ' Meanwhile Lajoie wasn't far be- l hind. Nap kept pumping out his | safeties almost as regularly as Cobb. Nap had won the title in 1901, and again in 1903 and 1904, He knew he had a good chance of getting it back. An automobile company in Detroit offered a car to the winner of the league batting title that year. The moor officials probably had one oye op 'their own Detroit star when thty made the offer, because Ty looked like an overwhelming favorite to walk off with the crown. After all, he'd done it in 3907—1908 and 1909—he ought to be able to repeat. But the Cleveland fans took that as a challenge—they wanted that prize for their man and as the season wore on they pulled for a base hit every time Lajoie came to bat. But things didn't look good for the Cleveland hero as he and Cobb came down to the last week of the season. Cobb piled up a good-sixed load—and then he left the Detroit lineup That threw the burden on Lajoie. Cobb rested on the average he had piled up—and it was up to Nap to close the gap if he could. The Cleveland star went after Cobb's mark with hits ranging from his bat. With the last few days of the season facing him he pushed his mark up until it was close to Cobb's—but not too close. On the last day of the season the pencilpushers sat dqwn and found that Nap would need eight or nine hits to challenge the mark Ty Cobb had set. Cleveland took on the Saint Louis Browns in a doubleheader that day. It was in Saint Louis— and the players on both sides knew how badly Lajoie wanted his hits bhat day. Nap was a terror ;o the Saint Louis pitchers that day—he got _cight hits in eight official times at bat. But the ninth time—well here's how that went. "Jack Graney roosted on third when Nap came lip.-:.Lajoie laid down a bunt .for'"-the third or fourth time that -day. And that was the money ball—if Nap didn't beat it out for a h'lt' his average would x be 384 to 385 for Ty Cobb. Nap raced down the' base line while the Brownie third baseman —Red Corridcn— charged in. Corriden picked up the ball and whirled—and then he stopped, for Graney was sliding Into third. While he hesitated Lajoie crossed the bag at first. The official scorer looked down sadly and wrote: "Lajoie—sacrifice." Nap didn't get the hit—and Cobb got the title. ' ' RETURNING VET By Jack Sords > « CMiCA6o Tom Yawkey Keeps On Building Boston Red Sox Fading- Veterans No Longer Have Place "On The Boston Team New York. Aug. 28—(UP)—They don't call the Boston Red Sox a spendthrift outfit any more. Owner Tom Yawkey is still laying thousands of dollars o.n the line for players—but the emphasis has shifted Irom fading veterans to coming rookies. • The Sox have developed an efficient scouting system. And with the Yawkey bankroll behind them, they've been getting what they want lately. The Sox newest pitcher— Clem Dreiscwerd — points up their success in finding new mound strength. Dreiscwerd cnme to Boston from the Pacific Coast league for a stiff price. But if his record of 20 victories there is .'in indication of his value, he ought to be wonh it. Back in June. Yawkey proved that he wasn't afraid to gamble 'on an untried youngster by dishing out a big bonus to sign Dick Callalmm. IJick is the New Orleans prep school boy who pitched two no-hitters—now he's with Boston's Louisville Farm club in the American association, Yawkey got another pitcher in June. He brought in Red Barrett from Columbus of the American association — and Red's been a winner for the Sox. When Tex Hughson left to Join the navy the Red Sox reached out to the Pacific Coast league. And within ten days of each other two star hurlers — Rex Cecil and Drciscwcrd, moved onto the Boston roster. (This isn't Dreiscwerd's first major league job, The lefty had short stay with the New York Giants in 193B. But Bill Terrj wasn't bothering to teach rookies in those days. , Cieslewski Wins IRA Tennis Singles Title BUY WAK BONDS AMJ STAMPS The Men's single title of the Watei'bury IRA tennis tourney was won yesterday by Henry Cies- :lewski , of the U.

BEING MADE 3122 FOR INFORMATION 4986 AND RESERVATIONS Gall Athletes May Lose Out Through Years In Service New York, Aug. 28 — (UP) — The standard diving line between old and young athletes is usually the thirty-year mark. Back in the days before the war that line held true most of the time. Only the best of the crop in every branch of sports could, hang on for long after they had passed thirty. And especially so in the ring "where the champions as. well as the fourth-raters age quickly. Quick reactions—the t7-ndc mark of young men—keep a boxing champ on top. When he slows down he's .an easy mark for another good man. And that's why some of the men now listed as titlcholdcrs may not have good flKhis left in them when they come out of the armed services. Looking over the list of champs in the service you'll find hcavy- woiBht king Jo.e Louis hcadinp; the list. The Brown Bomber is 30 now, but he's likely to outln'st many of the others. The light-heavy crown is in the Coast Guard with Gus Lcsnevich, and Gus also is 30 years ol&, Naval Specialist Red Cochranc is the welterweight champion— and Red'sj 29. Middleweight King Tony Z,-i!e of the Navy is the oldest of the crew at 31—the youngest is soldier Bob Montgomery, the -lightweight champion at 25. Almost all of those men are sure to get a chance to defend their titles—to rinp the cash-register at least once or wicc again before reiring. But shortly after the war there'll be younger men— young and fast to make their bids for the titles and the cheers..

After dropping the first game to Hal Ncwhouser, 5 to 3, the Browns jumped all over the Tigers with a 17 to 2 victory. The split double-header kept the Browns three and one-half games ahead of the New York Yankees, who divided a. twin-bill with the Wash i n gton Senators. Oscar Grimes homered for Now York in :hc opener and Walt Dubiel pitched New York to a 4 to 2 triumph. In the second game, however, the Senators nudged a. run over in the last half of the ninth inning—to win the game, 0 to 4. Boston Reel Sox Manager Joe Cronin pulled one of the best coaching tricks of the year. Situated in the third base coaching box, he called every fast ball and curve that Philadelphia Athletic Russ Christopher threw —and six straight Boston batters paraded to first base. Boston won the opener, S to 5, and the secor.d feature, 7 to 2. The Cleveland Indians took a pair of one-run games from the Chicago White Sox, winning the first -1 to 3 and the nightcap, l to 0. Jim Eagby hurled the opener for Cleveland. In the second game Roy Culienbine's ninth in- hing home run broke & pitching b.iulo between Steve Gromek and Johnny Humphries— who traded seven-hitters. The New York Giants strengthened their hold on fourth place— by winning two games from the Brooklyn Dodgers, S to 1 and -3 to 2.
