It was anybody’s game from the time the first ball was thrown until Fatty Ludewig struck out Gillum in the ninth with the tie run on the bags. Tietze played a beautiful game in right, throwing out Schaeffer at second with a beautiful peg after the long sin gle down the right field foul line and again in the sixth by backing up first and getting the put-out when they were running Gilum between first and second through Ludewig’s throw getting him off first....Fatty Roth got into the game by Tausch hurting the middle finger on his throwing hand during practice. I believe the fact that he couldn’t play hurt Tausch worse than the split finger....Moose got into the game and fame in the fifth when he scored Roth from first who had got on with a single, with a triple, and scored a moment later when Eckhart uncorked a low one that got away from the catcher....In the ninth, Schulze, first up for the Tigers flew out to left, Roth got on by an error of second and Stein put one in the same place which went throug, Roth going to third and Stein to second. Moose struck out and with two down and two on Ludewig poled a peach of a hit to right center sending Roth home for the third and what proved to be the winning score. Severn played some heady game....Tietze and Ludewig had planned to make the trip in a car, but were so anxious to get started that the little fellow tore the starting lever clear out of the car and they had to take the train 50 years ago (1945) Betty Pfeuffer Triesch VJ DAY COMES TO NB ALLIES GAIN COMPLETE VICTORY AS JAPAN GIVES UP THE STRUGGLE War Is Over Nation Prepares For Long Peace....Japan surrendered unconditionally Tuesday, August 14.
