Tilden Hurt The exhibition was marred by an injury to Tilden in the seventh game of the first set in the mixed doubles. Big Bill. who had been turning in an performance, sprained his left ankle while going after a difficult Budge placement and was forced to call it quits.

In an announcement to the gathering, Miss Marble explained that the quartet still has several engagements listed, and rather than run the risk of aggravating the injury, Tilden would rest the injured member. The former world champion retired in favor of Nogrady, who is carried as a spare by the troupe. Tilden said he expects to play Thursday at Atlantic City, N. J. Tilden gave Budge a real tussle in the opening set of their singles match.

However, his age played 2 telling part in the second set and the Californian won easily. Big Bill trailed his younger opponent by only four games to three in the opening set, but Budge, despite two doublefaults in the eighth game, came through with fine placements at opportune moments to win.

Verne Richards made Ea most auspicious debut AS alt Eastern League batter. When he got a hit in the second inning, it was his first. He followed with three more for a perfect day. They were no bunts, either. One of them just missed clearing the left-feld wall.

Connecticut got three of its six runs by stealing hases and two others fast base running.

Only the jackpot run was earned principally by hittiag power. But the Uconns also played a Robin Hood role, for their seven error played 2 large part in every one of Springfeld's five tallies, Throws Arm Out However, Connecticut did zet 10 hits to Springfield's eight in this contest that SAW the lead seesaw back and forth and five plichers work in the box for the two teams.

There are still question marks sprinkled through the Cathedral lineup. Coach Billy Wise knows who his out his second baseman and his shortstop will but he isn't sure of much of anything else. He'll use Keough, Larkin and Kenney, all veterans. in the picket line and post Maloney at second base and Silk, a West Springfield boy, at short. Beyond that I he won't guarantee a thing.

Ragion, who also plays basketball and foothall, has been doing a capable job hoth at third base and in center field.

The trouble is that Kpough, who covered the the outfield berth hand Ragion has tory last season, first call on had no experience on the hot COner.

Panetta was probably the hest third baseman on squad. He'll be ready for action some time in May, if all gops well scholastically in the meantime.

A moment later Baldwin stole home, and then Horvath came in when Winzler, who had walked, attempted successfully to steal second. Two hits by Baldwin and Mitchell in the sixth put men on first and third, and then Baldwin came home after Mitchell had got himself in a box taking second. Mitchell subsequently took third and stole home. In the eighth, Horvath stole home after two hits by himself and Mitchell had nut him in scoring position.

Coach Ed McGibney's Trade outfit shouldn't have any particular trouble with Ludlow. With Bruno Chmura mowing them down, the Beavers were hot in their opening appearance against Ware last week and Ludlow, 0l1 what it. has shown SO far, isn't ready to give them A battle. McGibney will probably shift Chmura, an outstanding infielder, to second base and Carmen Gianetti 10 the outfield, starting Mitch Stanck on the firing line. Like Wise at Cathedral, Coach Johnny Kalloch of Smith Acad- emy is still undecided about his lineup for the opruing of the Hampshire League today.

He will start either Woloss or J. Mullins on the hill with Stanley Rome doing the backstopping. Ed Rome, Kugler, Slusars, Yarrows, Moxie, Mack, Shea, Donnis and Kraft are the squad members who'll play for Smith hut Kalloch has been experimenting with several combinations and the pattern won't be definite until game time.

Originally, the day's program called for the opening of the Northern Connecticut League with Windsor Locks, the defending champion, meeting Enfield at Thompsonville.

The contest has been postponed because several of the Windsor Locks seniors are making a. vacation trip to Washing. ton, D. C. The slate has been re.

arranged so that the teams will clash at Thompsonville June 4 and at Windsor Locks June 11. Bump Hadley Let Go by Giants NEW YORK, April 29 --Irving (Bump) Hadley, who at times during the spring looked like one of the New York Giants' best pitchers, was hand. ed his surprise release today. He started two games against Brooklyn and although he finished neither, received credit for one victory. He also had been used in relief once.

He was a veteran of 14 years service in American League and was sold to the Giants during the winter by the New York Yankees, HU SHIH TO SPEAK MIDDLEBURY, V.

HEARST IS 18 YREKA, April 29 liam Randolph Hearst celebrated his 78th birthday quietly today at his 5680-acre estate in Siskiyo County. However, for Wright's Wide on Turn LOUISVILLE, April 29 (AP) -'The high speed Blue Pair nipped Whirlaway in the Derby Trial mile today, but the big "preview" to Saturday's Kentucky Derby didn't prove a thing except that Whirlaway still can come like the wind if he's able to steer a straight road home. In the final test before the running of the Blue Grass classicwhich Col. Matt Winn, Churchill Downs head, predicted today would be the biggest ever with 100,000 spectators on hand-Tom Bragg's colt finished three quarters of a length in front of Whirlaway, but only because Warren Wrisht's little nut ran wide just as the field came out of the stretch turn. Up to that point, Whirlaway had come from fifth place in the field of six -some nine lengths back of the leaders--to look the pace.setters in the eye.

Then, after running on the outside of horses all the way 'round the stretch bend, he couldn't straighten out and WAS more than halfway ed for home. This lost enough across the track when the, field head. ground to cost him the race. No Sign of Injury As for Blue Pair, which WAS rumored to be suffering from popped splint, he didn't run like A colt ered by an injury. le covered the eight furlongs in blistering time of 1.36 3-5, and, if somethjing did hurt him, as reports persisted, it apparently wasn't serious enough either to annoy him today or to keep from Saturday's Derby.

For, at Mine finish, both Willie Crump and Ben Jones, respective trainers, announced that Blue Pair and Whirlaway definitely would answer when the bugles sound, "My Old Kentucky Home." There wore four other starters in race. But after this quartetCadmium, Shaun Quintilian and Sporting--finished far down the track, there was little chance any of them would get to the post Saturday.
