Bion and could not be ousted without

Hoke refused to step aside.
All of this is fine business and a
great help to the boxing game. Such
fiascos as this put the game off its
feet. It not only antagonizes the re
formers, but the real sports who like
clean boxing are not made friendly
by this stuff.
With the receipt of the official
sanction from the contest board of
the American Automobile ass'n, Da
vid F. Reid, pres. of the Speedway
Park ass'n, yesterday sent out the
entry blanks for the speedway grand
prix cup race that will be held on the
board o'al at Maywood on Aug. 19,
the date originally assigned to Elgin,
but relinquished when the annual
Watch City classic was abandoned.
In order to qualify cars must av
erage 100 miles per hour or better.
1 oday will be the day of days for
the Illinois Jockey club. On today's
attendance at Hawthorne depends a
great deal of the chances of racing
coming back. A good card is offered
and a splendid day is assured. If a
big crowd is at the track on this, the
first Saturday since the derby, the
promoters will be patting themselves
on the back.
The Merchants' handicap, the fea
ture of the day, should be a much
better race than the derby. More
horses will start, and among the en
tries are such cracks as Dodge, der
by winner; Faux Col, Leo Skolny,
Skiles Knob, Sir Edgar and Blackie
Daw. In addition, the third race will
be the President's cup handicap with
a good entry list.
The dopesters were hit hard yes
terday, wfien five favorites took the
dust. The only "sure thing" that
came through for the form players
was Grasmere in the sixth. Jockey
Schermerhorn was the boy who up
set the dopesters. He landed three
winners, two of them long shots and
the other at 7 to 2. In addition, he
came in third in the getaway race 1
with Nannie McDee, a 15 to 1 shot,
which brought 7 to 2 for show.
Casey Jones again disappointed the
wise birds by coming in fourth in
the fourth race, Bonanza, a 6 to 1
shot, ridden by the pesky Schermer
horn, landed this race. Huffaker and
Anita followed him home.
Frank Murphy, the best-known
jockey in the meet, won back some w
of his admirers by putting over Bur
bank, a 5 tc 1 shot, in the third.
