N. L. p&tinqnt i>' ^ An early portrait Popular with the kids Don Budge Had Tough Match With Bruce Barnes BRKNNK'll IJnitod Press Sports Stiilf It was hard i to understand, but Bruce ..Barnes .was .handing Don Budge a thorough ironncinjf. The two tenniu stars facod each other in iho lln:i.)s of the National Tennis Open—and liudge was on the run Bruce B«; l nos was ^ood, all r:£ht. But- nobody over (loured ho was IT o nd onoutrh to put Budge on the run. Since EudKC had turned pro- fossional in .IfcSO he'd been mopping up cvec-ytbiny in sight. Tho California red-head had trounced Fred Perry. KHsworth Vines, and Bill Tilden regularly And before turning pro—well, Don had left, nothing behind him. He'd won. just, about everything MH ama- Lour could win With him in a i.ournnmcnt; thorc ^-as no use won- loring; who would win—Bud^c was .he nian with the title every time. Ho'cl come out of California to make himself the best rackct- iwing-er ill Amorica.—and probably n tbe world. Don roso to the top n the American championships— 10 took'the British title at Wimbledon—he led the United States Davis cup team—and his name topped the amntciir ratings. Finally, in 111.39, Budge went over to the professional ranks to cash n on his talent. There ho whipped .he best, the pro's liar! to offer. And .vhcn he moved through tlio ranks n tho 10-11 open, no one expected Barnes to give much trouble in the 'jnivls. But Barnes was too busy playing .cnnis to worry about being the mderdog. With his first few smashes he found that Budge's .'uretaand was weak. Don just wasn't, smashing Uicm back the way he usually did. And Barnes piled in. It wasn't easy, because Budge's cannon ball serve was working, like a whole, battery of artillery. They fought into overtime. But Budge didn't have the stuff he needed. Barnes won that first sot 7 to 5. And he opened the second set with a fast drive. He wanted to powder through—to crush the California red-head before Budge could recover. It didn't work but that way. though. The going go'- harder. Budge was finding his touch. The score ran to five games for Budge and three for Barnes, One more game and Budtre would have the set—and tho mutch would be dcad,- .Icckccl. . Then Don Budge went back to the baseline to serve. Those booming service, drives of hi* are part of tennis history. Ho counted the match a poor one when he didn't blast a couple of clean r.cos past his opponent. And be needed them in that spot.-. He hauled himself up and slammed tho first one over —but .it wasn' nee. In fact, Budge didn't even win Ihc point. Once more he served— and once more Bruce Barnes won the point. And there on that tennis court in While Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, the spectators saw something that hadn't happened in years. Don Endgo lost n game on his own service And he lost it at love - -without getting a point. That upset the lanky tennis master I-K- pulled himself together and tore into Barnes' service. This timo it was Barnes who couldn't hold his own. The game and the sot went to BudKc— tbe match was squared. Then Budge wont to work like a flro engine picking up speed. He roared into action That forehand wasn't weak anymore — he was smashing- them to all corners of the court-— Barnes ran— ho ran until his tongue hung out— but' he couldn't catch those sizzling drives. Budge won tho third set C to ... j And he won the fourth sot by the same score— C to 3— and that gave him the title. Losing his own service without a point had purred Don Budge into winning- the championship. COLORFUL FILM IS SHOWING NOW AT THE STRAND THEATER Reaching back into the colorful post World-War Nc. I's "roaring 20's" for it's plot and musical sot- ting, the 20th Century Fox Technicolor production "Greenwich Village" will remain another week :n U'aterbury when it moves to tho Strand today. With Carmen Miranda, Don Amdchc. William Bcr.dix and introducing the now sensation Vivian Blaine (the Cherry Blondcl involved in it's tuneful story, "Greenwich Village" rolls back 20 years into the hey , day of America's world-famous artists' colony. In "Greenwich Village," Don Amocho, most recently seer. in "Heaven Can Wait," essays another intriguing role as a young composer who came out of Kansas to win a reputation in the Arabian Knights atmosphere of Greenwich Village. Opposite Don is a new musical discovery that 20th Century-Fox has slated for definite stardom. She is the red-headed Vivian Blaino. "The Cherry Blonde" mokes her loading lady bow -as Amecho's romantic interest and she sings three hit songs that critics claim will send her far along tho path of fame cut by Betty Grable and Alice Faye. "Greenwich Village" provides Carmen Miranda with her lirst roic since tho "Tho Gang's All Here" and her subsequent illness. It offers her a line opportunity to display her newly discovered talents as a comedienne and provides her with songs streamlined to her singing-dancing interpretations.
