Poll,.theater to truly absorbed and , thrilled audiences. Mctro-Goldwyn - Mayer ha.s filmed the best-seller novel of the same name by Anna SeRhcrs with fidelity and power and it emerges as one of the sca'son's most .successful pictures. "Tho Seventh Cross" is the story of .seven prisoners, in "protective custody," who escape from a per- man concentration camp one morn- iriK in 103G. At that time, IOIIK bc- :'orc actual war started, there already were those who reali/.cd the scope and meaning of Nazi brutality. Only one to make pood his escape is Ccorpc Heislcr, played by Tracy, while the 1 others, one by one, arc captured and dragged back to prison. Heisler, through tortuous days and nights, and aided' by good and loyal friends, finally makes good his bid for freedom from oppression But he will be back again, the story assures us, again to light Nazi tyranny. Tracy surpasses his grand performances in such hits as "A Guy Named Joe." "Keeper of the Flame" and all his other prize-winning performances As the girl who bofriends him. Signc Hasso is completely convincing and captivating. And the really stellar supporting cast need only be listed in order for you to appreciate with what care M-G-M peopled the film. There are Hume Cronyn. Jessica Tandy, Agnes Moorehead, Herbert Rudloy, Felix Bressart, Ray Collins, George Zucco, Alexander Cranach and Kathcrinc Locke, to name just a few of the outstanding actors in the list. The co-hit on this big program is "Goodnight Sweetheart" with Ruth Terry. • • GOV. BRICKICn TO SPEAK Hartford, Sept. 7 — (U P)—Republican VicePresidential Candidate Governor John W.

Old Pop Foster was worrying about his fighter back In. 1927 Pop's boy had been slugging his way up the professional Judder for five years. He'd been beating future champions, past champions, and current- lillcholders who fought in ovcr-the-weigbt bouts. Pop's fighter was'fighting and winning— winning over men llko Fidel LaBarba, Pancho Villa, and Frankie -Doll. Eul > the kid just wasn't getting anywhere. His career seemed lo be stalled. H» couldn't get tho really big matches—and he'd cleaned .up the. others. '/ , You remember P'o p. Foster's Tighter— the boy pop-. practlcaJly :--.iscd for the ring—Jimmy McEar- nin—once the welterweiffhl chatn- | pion of the vorld. But In .1927 Jim I was a long way from that title— and he felt even farther from the (jig tirnc. McLarnin was a smiling Irish kid who was born in Dublin, But he didn't stick around Dublin -long, because when he was two years old the McLarnin family.moved to the United States and later-to Canada. And it was in Vancouver that Jimmy had his first fight."He was a tough little slugger who weighed all of GO pounds then. After little Jimmy and his opponent battled to a draw in- 1 .a four-round amateur scrap, Jimmy earned his firsl. dollar in the ring. The promoter gave him thai dollar for carfare—Jimmy was afraid to go home in the dark. uiul a long stretch' 'of amateur fighting and five years in the professional ring cured Jimmy of his fear of going- into the dark. In fact Jimmy picked up weight and power as- he went along. And pretty soon he was knocking his opponents into the darkness. Dui-ing those 1927 doldrums Pop Foster decided that Jimmy might get a break if he could beat Louis- the-Kid Kaplan. l-'jp was biling off a lot there. The Kid had jusL resigned bin featherweight championship to Uiko on lightweights. Ho carried a punch two sizes belter than himself. But Pop thought his boy, could take the Kid. Pop Foster had spent years teaching McLarnin every trick of attack and defense — ha thought Jimmy was ready. And besides, a victory over Kaplan would set Jimmy up in major eastern boxing circles. Kaplan's manager — Lou Brix — smiled when ihey agreed on the fight. As far as Lou was concerned, McLarnin looked- like a skinny boy without much in his gloves. It looked like some easy money for the former feather-1 weight. champion. It was October ISth when they met. And it was the seventh fipht of tho year for Jimmy McLarnin, There was one point in his favor nven brforc the opening bell rang. But that lucky seven superstition didn't help Jimmy much against the powerful Kid The 'Kid did his work with gloves, not superstitions. And he used those gloves'to batter- McLarnin to the floor early in the light •',.; Louis the Kid was a guy with a one-track mind in the..ring. He had just one idea—slug the other guy until he-quits fighting The kid moved in and kept coming in. He tossed rights and lefts—and Jimmy caught them nil. Jimmy McLarnin—the kid who had never been on the floor before —went down. He got up again-— and Kaplan slapped him down once more. It happened three times. And over in Jimmy's corner tears' came to Pop Foster's eyes as he saw his boy taking a beating. Pop couldn't do anything but refresh Jimmy between rounds and encourage him. And while Jimmy moved out for the fourth and fifth Pop just stood'there and pleaded: "Come on Jimmy." The crowd wondered why Mc- Larnin didn't keel over-and go out under the terrific 1 pounding he was taking But he wasn'.t going 'out— he was coming back. Somehow that punishment seemed to roll off the skinny kid. In the sixth he was fighting back—and. hard. In tho seventh it was Kaplan -who was taking the beating. And then in the eighth skinny Jirnmy McLarnin stepped, in with one wild wallop. Kaplan went down —and the, referee's' count was just a formality, Old Pop Foster nearly choked with happiness. His boy was on his way to a title. DURABLE DUBIEL - - - By Jack Sords ); WALTER ONJ -the AMERICAN LKAGUE YcMtc'rday'H Itonults Detroit 3, Chicago 2. The Standing W.

Sunday New "York, Sept. 7—(L'P)—En- sisn"Sid Lucltman of the Maritime Commission snys he dcfinilc- Fy will ho out ot the Chicago Bcar lineup 'Sunday when the champions face the Washington 'Re. 1 skins in Baltimore. i L'uckman says he is at a loss to understand how a rumor Rot started In Chicago that he miprht be available to piny with his old team. The man who has sparked the Bear T-formation for several years Is in. the last phase of very important training at the Sheepshcad Bay Maritime station and he says that is more important than football. ' Luckman played with the Bears on September 10th when they met •—and defeated — the Collepe All- Stars in the annual charity game in Chicago. " The Baltimore Orioles—hard luck team of the International league, who finally made their way into <"-|thc league lead, may yet clinch the pennant after n. tough year. .The Oriole triumph will mean a lot lo the Baltimore club, for the season has seen them take every punishment in the book. Literally they have survived a test by fire —when their home park burned— and still have played consistently Rood ball. Three Oriole players were forced to play games barefoot after their shoes were burned, because their foot-size made immediate replacement impossible. But the Newark Bears can be counted on to give the Orioles some tough competition yet. Starting- at the bottom of the International league last July G, the bc.irs have fought their way up around the top on the brilliant pitching of Mel Queen, Floyd Bcv- ins. Ken Holcombc and Joe Page. And though Queen and Bevins have since joined tho Yar.ks, the Newark pitching rosier still packs strength. The Baltimore club depends on such stalwarts as Ken Lowry, Red Banslatc, and Hod Embrec to de.ij out its pitching pitch. The next few days will probably see a see-saw battle for I he lead between the Bears a.nd Orioles. Playoffs begin shortly after the regular league season" ends on Sunday. .•16-1 .•15-1 .412 .•105 .39 IA« STACt JHOW $Ar.i5UN.ollO PM 4IMKJPOW For m-poiuliible Fire 'Insurance On Your Furniture .Soc:.

Ted Wilb May Win 19 By Season's End New York. Sept. 7—(UP)—Head and shoulders above the crowd and eadcd for National league records stands Ted Wilks of the SI. Louis Cardinals. This 28-year-old hurler began the season with predictions for a rosy future and he has lived up to all those predictions — and bct- ered them. His record of 35 victories as against two defeats may well bel- ter that of Freddie Fitzsimmons f the Cardinal pitcher can stave, off any further defeats. He probably will make four more starts jcforc the National league ends its season. Billy Southworth undoubtedly vill use the first year pitcher as world scries starter, and Wilks jrobably won't waste time using lis controlled fast balls, curve balls against the American league contender. The two defeats Wilks has suffered have both been narrow losses. In the fii*st, Giant pitcher Bill Voisellc outpointed Wilks by a score of two to one. Then followed a. string of 12 straight victories which was snapped by the Pittsburgh Pirates last Saturday, 5 to -l. A big' factor in the excellent pitching record Wilks has piled up is the unerring control ho is able to put with his fast and curve balls. He can also throw an effective sinker. So, look at the record any way you will and you're sure lo sec Wilks looming as one of the biggest threats the American league pennant winner must meet. ' ' change of pace all through th c night. . , jn the latter part of the second inning, the factory men got «JK runs when the volunteers' infield suddenly turned into a siege after one man was out. Before the confusion came to a.n end, a hajf dozen of Chief Jim P<!ttit';i men ha<! mad,, the scoring column. In tho last of the fourth, ihc veteran Pete Ercnnan look over the mound duties for the Vols'. He struck out the first man lo faxxr him, with his famous pufTball, a t which all great softball playtni up and down the Naugatuck Valley speak with the greatest respect. Bui Brownie Karaban lagged one of his pilches to left field, which Spike Dcegan misjudged. Brownie \vau credited with a double but made his -way around ihe busts without stopping, as Mr. DeCRaa's. trousers threatened lo fall, and he •had divided his concentration among fielding the ball and holding his trousers up. This was the factory men's seventh, and l«zt run as Old Pelc settled down. In the fifth, the volunteers bsgan to pour.d the practically untouchable heretofore Smokcball Gesseck, whose nimble, sure fingered infield also wen:, ala the volunteers of the second inning. But the best the Vols could do, was to push four runs across, taking 7-5. Tho fielding artist of the ovening was John "Who'.* Who" Hackett, who played third base for the Hose On. He was stopping everything that came his way. But ;.ho most brilliant, play, was his fielding .a hit off .second baseman'* Bill Sullivan's glove which wcat into right field. Jack Kackett had pulle<l H. sleeper, and had left third base for short right flcld, leaving the shortstop to cover the arcs. near third This is the only instance in organized, or unorganized or dir=orrranized baseball that the feat of a .third baseman throwing out a man :it first on a ground ball into right field ha_<= neon recorded. Big Eddie Kcenan was imported from W.-ivcrbury to umpire the game and did a swell job. The Hcsc Co. challenges the Curliss Street Flats to a ball game week from Friday. Gubby Cowan, manager of the Flats is asked to get in touch with Nordhil! Nauges, manager of the volunteers. Approximately 300 spectators enjoyed the contest, after which refreshments were served.
