Still Bobsledder Lost Amateur Golf Tourney Purposely By BERNARD I1RENNER, t'nlU'd -1'renH Sports Stuff 2228 is the MAGIC Phone No. Von can .n'oi us much service* by (•.'illini;' that number us you can by \vriling' or coin ing into the office of Uic NAUGAT,UCK DAILY NEWS Ai'l service Hitler was getting ready to go to war late in 1039. But though the Nazis -had filled their gas lanks for the first .plunge, things looked peaceful on the surface. At least they looked peaceful enough for an American who was traveling in Europe to risk a quick trip to Hitler-land to see some follows he once had met. The American was Donna FON — the bobsled champion. In the 1938 winter Olympics Donna had met some of I he German bobsled- dcrs. Donna was on his vacation, nnd he thought he might as well dnsli over to Germany to say hello to some of the boys. Like many other athletes, Donna liked an occasional round of golf, and his natural co-ordinal ion ind muscular control made him a pretty fair golfer. So when he ;«'- •ived at Bad Ems— near Cologne —and found the German amateur championships stiirling, he entered ust for the fun of It, Donna qualified. Bui thnt saino night he was' in his room when ellow he knew walked in,. The •nan bad competed against him n the Olympics. But now the guy vns wearing a German army uni- orm. The fellow checked the room for llctaphones — looked down the hall to sec that no one was around— and then he said: "Listen, Donnn, we're going 'to war any minute now. I wouldn't tell you this if you weren't a friend — the boss would .shoot me if he knew. But get out quick or you'll 1 be interned." i Donna Fox had picked out a hot i spot to stand .on. He didn't want to run away — the Nazis would laugh and call him a coward. But at the same time he didn't want to -stay around ur.d play golf with G.ernuins getting ready lo start a war. | He stayed — and the next night j he was in nn unhnppicr spot than ever. He had won his first-round match. Donna tried hard to lose — he tried to hook his drives, but : the wind carried his shots back onto the fairways. Everything 'Donna tried turned out well, and the dirty looks piled up all around him. The second round and the third went the 1 same way. And each time Donna's knees knocked harder until I hey begun to sound like a rhumha band. Both the second and third round matches went into extra holes. Nothing seemed to save him from winning, and he frowned as he thought of what would happen if the goose-stepping Nazis 'saw a bobsled specialist walking off wflh their golf championship. Then Dohmi found himself in the semi-finals. He halved the.first hole with his German opponent The German glared a,t Donna — Donna glared right back. The American didn't want to win, but he didn't want- any nasty looks from his opponent either. Donna couldn't help winning the second hole, the German just refused to co-opernte that time. Fox I w;us tyring to lose \yithout letting. j I he Nazis see he was throwing the I mutch." On the third -hole the Ger| man 'picked up a little — ho won that one and squared the match. The German drove from the fourth tec — and Donna groaned quietly. His opponent's hall had Hooked over into the rough. Donna decided ho could do just an, well. He closed his eyes find swung hard. But when he opened them again the ball had trickled over a little mound and rolled to within a few Inches of the cup. There was just no way out of winning that one. And 'Lhat was the way things went for 18 holes — Donna looking for ways to lose, and the German • — playing his best — just managing to keep even. They finished 1 the round all tied up— and they went into a play-off. On- the first extra tee Donna noticed' same workmen across the valley. He ,told the boy.s he need-. od n drink of water and das hod into the clubhouse whore he grabbed someone he knew. Donna asked: "What arc those guys doing over there?" ' The friend looked around nervously, and then he leaned over and whispered: "Quiet! 'Those "men arc building Hitler's second line of defense. Don't look at i'l." Donna went back out to his hall. Ho was finished with his attempts to make things look good. He meant to lose, and quickly 'loo; Donna wound up like a windmill and suddenly shifted his footing. He swatted that ball with all his strength — in the wrong dircclion. And that same night he grabbed the train to 'France, : IN HEMSLEVS SHOES ... - By Jack Sords Waner Tries To Tie Up With Another Club New York.

"Greenwich Village," the romantic hit in Technicolor has still Ihroe days left at the Locw Poll theater.

Hall complex, who has come East Vo reali/.e'his ambitions as a composer of serious • music, wanders' intn New York's famous .night .spot Greenwich'Village. Carmen Miranda, the village fortune teller, and fortune hunter spots him and steers him .to Will.iam B.endix's night club where she's employed. It so happens that lovely -Vivian Elaine, is the club's premiere chan. teuse and while La Miranda and' Bendix plan to tap Don for his for.- tune to promote .1 Broadway musical, Don loses -his heart to Vivian and who wouldn't? From there on its fun and. more fun, with the audience ending up the heavy winner with a fast-paced story that leads up to a grand climax enthrallingly spiced with dazzling dance routines and grand song hits. Its truly a wonder show, from start to Wanted Part or full time help, male or female. No experience necessary.

Post Of f ice Team Issues Challenge To Hose Co. Ar.d now the Post Office has entered the local softbnll picture, as Mgr. Frank Moorney issued a challenge to the Naugatuck Hose Co. this morning. In preliminary negotiations bc- t w« e n the respective managements, the Volunteers told the envelope jugglers, n-s they have told other teams, that they must get arcpulation. Mgr. Moroney replied this morning thai the rcpuuition was present with the P. O. men ever since late in last year, when they allegedly extinguished a fir< in an automobile before the firemen could get to work. "What more of a reputation do we need than that?" Mr. Moroney inquired rhetorically. The mailmen, while they await ihe decision o' !hc powers that be on the Volunteers, tangle with the St. Francis' CYO team tonight. The team, with plenty of help, will be selected from among the following: Postmaster Frank Green.' assistant postmaster, Ed McCarthy.

SPLENDID SCREEN BILL NOW AT THE STRAND, WATERBURY "It Happened Tomorrow," current feature on the screen at the Strand, is an unusual picture as well .is a funny one. . .which is a good thing- to say about any coni- dy. The plot of the film, which stars Dick Powell, Linda. Darnell nnd Jack Ookie, is a Reno Clair natural. It deals with the strange and rib-tickling tribulations of a. young reporter, young Larry Stevens (Dick Powell) of the Evening News of 1S90. when he is given a copy of tomorrow's newspaper, today! The source of th'is desirable arrangement is the fatherly ghost of one Pop Benson, former iccper of the flies of the News. As a result of his possession of the newspaper, Stevens 3s able to predict tomorrow's weather and sundry other events which eventually leads him to U>e calaboose. For the police, not believing in his natural prowncss, suspect him of .-cry real and pracUcal knowledge of scvcrn! criiiies. Managing to get out of the crim- nal charge against him. Young Mr. Stevens linds himself Hrst a hero,, hen a rich man as a result of his 31-o-ordained winnings at Tilc races, \nd finally rends his own obituary n another edition of the phantom paper. The climax to this disturb- ng situation (for Mr. Stevens) 3s clever and complete surprise. We vant to retain our good standing is a reputable reviewing: service ind urge you 10 go see this unusual and funny-film at the Strand oursc'.f.
