Bradlev's Favorite Runs Out
Of Horses With Which
To I’rep For Race
r/onSViLLE. Ky., April 29.—UP)
cjmelecli poked bis head out of
The stall, nodded a friendly ‘‘hello.’’

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. At this
writing, it appears the field will be
nine at the most.

WASHINGTON, April 20. — (,P) —
A weird display of baseball brought
the New York Yankees a 5 to 4 vic
tory over the Senators today, ending
a five-game Washington winning
streak and a three-game losing- string
for the world champions.
Buddy Rosar, New York’s reserve
catcher singled home the deciding
run in the innth with his third hit
of the-game after Frank Crosetti
opened with a single and moved to
second on a sacrifice.
The Yanks had a slovenly day in
the field, making three errors, and
were outhit S to 7. But Spud Chand
ler generally was effective with run
ners on base while three Washing
ton hurlers walked nine men and
hit one.

Full the Trigger on
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. Buy Dr. Caldwell s Lax
ative—Senna with Syrup Pepsin at your
