Ky., April 29.—UP) cjmelecli poked bis head out of The stall, nodded a friendly ‘‘hello.’’ g,,a snickered at the whole set-up. ycu would have sworn “Mr. Big” jtpew as well as the next fellow. .' n-;s going on. Just about wliut '-.IS a . every’00'--' dee realized it. For the picture at the start of Kentucky Derby week today found t]l£ ijchtning streak from Lexington not only the shortest priced favorite in the history of the Bluegrass clas sic but actually running out of horses with which to work In his .fliiv props. So, he’s going to use ten other derby candidates as work horses tomorrow in the Derby Trial Stakes, and then go against some of the same gallopers Saturday in the J.j.ie for the $75,000 Brass Ring. Bimmie lias been working with the pther half of Col. E. R. Bradley’s hopeful. Bashful Duck, in his trials for Saturday's 66th running of the hi- race. But, apparently the Duck "an wore out’’ trying to keep up with the big fellow. As a re sult, he was left at Lexington. This morning, Bimmie blew out three-eights in a snappy 37 seconds. In previous years, it has always beer the Bradley policy to give the stable s derby hope a workout over the full mile-and-a-quarter route on Tuesday before the big race. To morrow he will be one of the 11 who will take a crack at the derby trial affair and then run out the full mile and two furlongs at the finish The others include such der by un-hopefuls as Insoclad, Royal Man. Connaught, Potranco and Siro co. but if it’s true what they say about Bimmie. the others might just as well take in a movie. Incidentally, you can just forget about any talk that Don Meade, and not Smith, who has ridden Bimelech in all his races—will have the leg up on he Biblically-named Colt Satur day. The Bradey barn folks say there was never a thought of taking Smith off Bimmie. None of the chief candidates for second place in Saturday’s derby-— .1. . ,_. no- D.’mrvuVo exclusively—will take a crack at to morrow's mile test, although all were in their stalls here today. They are W. L. Brann's mud-running Pic tor. winner of the Chesapeake stake; Hared A. Clark's Royal Man, and Arnold Hanger’s Dit. the coit that made a show of the Wood Memorial field Saturday at Jamaica. These three—Dit arrived today and the other pair got in Sunday—are generally regarded as the rest of the first four in the derby.

Nazi Claims Denied From the admiralty came a flat denial of what was said to be Ger man claims that five British war ships and 13 transports had been sunk or badly hit within the last 48 hours.

ADVERTISEMENT Full the Trigger on Pepsisi-izeAcsdStomachToo When constipation brings on acid indi gestion, bloating, dizzy spells, gas, coated tongue, sour taste, and bad breath, your stomach is probably loaded up with cer tain undigested food and your bowels don’t move. So you need both Pepsin to help break up fast that rich undigested food in your stomach, and Laxative Senna to pull the trigger on those lazy bowels. So be sure your laxative also contains Pepsin. Take Dr. Caldwell’s Laxative, because its Syrup Pepsin helps you gain that won derful stomach comfort, while theLaxative Senna moves your bowels. Tests prove the power of Pepsin to dissolve those lumps of undigested protein food which may linger in your stomach, to cause belching, gastric acidity and nausea. This is how pepsin izing your stomach helps relieve it of such distress. At the same time this medicine wakes up lazy nerves and muscles in your bowels to relieve your constipation. So see how much better you feel by taking the laxative that also puts Pepsin to work on that stomach discomfort, too. Even fin icky children love to taste this pleasant family laxative.
