Key West-South Broward Basketball Battle Tonight Rates As Toss-Up
Wicked To Seek His First Grade One Victory At Local Kennel Club
Bulldogs, Conchs
To Renew Rivalry
On Local Court
The largest crowd ever to
wftneee a basketball game in
Keg West is expected to
flock to tonight's crucial
Key West-South Broward
clash—if they can squeeze
their way into the pocket
size high school gymnasium.
South Broward officials
said Thursday that they will
bring 12 cheerleaders along
with their 24 man squad (in
cluding the Jaycees). In
addition, a host of Bulldog
fans will accompany the
eagers here to fan the al
ready heated, but friendly
rivalry between the two
schools into an inferno.
Hence, Key Wert fans, if they
want to have a look at what pro-
Rises to be the hottest bit of bas
ketball action on the local scene
Ms year, had better put in an
tally appearance The festivities
will get underway at ? p. m., with
a jayvee clash. The varsity tik is
fat for 8:15 p. m.
The Gold Coast Conference lea
dership hinges on the outcome of
the latter tussle. Sod it should be
a totsup.
Coach Win Jones averred
Thursday the* the only advan
tage the Conchs will have is the

“I think we hate - an even

itod Jones.

erably for the battle hi an effort
to come up with a combination
which may be able to stifle the
Bulldogs’s highly vaunted foot
breaking attack.
Glynn Archer, toe Conchs’ lead
ing point-maker will be at his regu
lar forward position but diminu
tive Gibby Gates has been named
•s his running mate.
The five foot, six inch Gates
tamed the starting berth on the
basis of Us fiery offensive and de
fensive tactics which were a big
factor in the Condi's feat in lidd
ing both Coral Gables and Miami
High down to dose verdicts.
John Carbonell will be at his re
gular starting position at center but
Julio Henriquex has been moved
over from guard to spell him.
Biff Salgada Is a surprise start
er at ana of the guards while
dependable Stu Logun, ana of the
Cench's high-scorers will handle
the ether guard spat.
Salgado, was given the nod this
week because of bis uncanny shoot
ing in intensive practice sessions
during toe recent two-week layoff.
Apparently slowed down by a foot
ball injury, Salgado has come a
tong rapidly and should prove to
be a mainstay for the balance of
tough cage season.
Jones has at least one cause for
rejoicing as a result of drill ses
sions foul shooting. Sloppy work
from the foul circle was blamed
tor at least one of the Conch’s two
defeats this year, with their aver
age bitting; only about 30 per cent
in that department.
The team record in drill sessions
this week l6 baskets in 20 tries.

The 10-rounder, scheduled for 10

Ever since the court “reversed

the Philadelphian has been a more
determined boxer. His 1953 record,

ED DENSLOW, Chart Man for the Key West Kennel Club, set
something of a record last Saturday night when he named the
winners of nine of the 11 races bn the program, along with the
daily double, eight Quinielas and had 23 dogs in the money.
A long-time animal fancier, Denslow recomrrwnds that fans
“watch every dog in the race.”—Citiaen Staff Photo.
Kennel Club Handicapper Says
“Watch Every Dog In The Race”
Ed Denslow is an animal
lover.
Maybe that’s why he has
made his living for the past
couple of decades around
four-footed creatures.
His long and colorful car
eer has seen him work as
farm director of a mid-West
radio station, announce live
stock shows, and finally,
dence since he cracked the TV cir-j
cuit. His most important ‘53 vic
tories were scored over Pierre
Langlois and Walter Cartier al
though he lost to Cartier in a re-,
turn go. In his last outing, Panter
whipped a ring rusty Norman
Hayea at Detroit, Dec. S. His rec
ord i§ 52-12-2
handle the chart making at
the Key West Kennel Club.
Denslow is the man who picks
all those winners you see to the
program, and the guy who com
piles toe information to toe pro
gram which has enabled Key West
' dog racing fans to come up with
some winners of their own.
He set something of a record
last Saturday night he came
up with toe winners of nine of the
11 races on the program. But that
wasn’t all, he also picked the daily
double, eight Quinielas and bad 23 !
dogs to the money.
J The catch he can’t bet them
he’s as official of the dog!
’track. j
If you ask him how he does it,
Denslow will give you a grin and
say: “Watch every dog to the race,!
not just the one you are betting
He explains that by keeping
track of ail the pups you will be
gin to see what makes one dog
better than another.
“For example, a dog may be
“P * toe head of toe pack and
then be bumped on a turn and fall
behind. The fact that be runs sev
enth or eighth doesn’t mean that
he won’t be a winner his next time
out,” Denslow explains.
And as “chart man” at toe
track, Denslow is responsible for
keeping tab 6 on every dog to every
race. From his booth high atop the
Kennel Club grandstand, Denslow
watches and records the perform
ance of the dogs.
His job starts when the pups
leave the starting box. He
“calls” the order the dogs leave
ihe box to his stenographer. As
they go into toe backstretch, he
makes another “call” and again
when they hit toe homestretch.
He then records toe order of
their finish and the distance be
tween each dog. He also notes any
unusual occurrences during the
race, 1. e. whether a dog was
bumped, finished strong or faded.
He pasy no attention to the dogs
number, but identifies them by toe
color of their blankets.
His data is confirmed by a cam
era which records visually the fin
ish order of each of the dogs.
Closest of the several thousand
races he has “called" was last
year at the Black Hills South Da
kota track when all eight dogs hit
the wire with only a half length
separating the lead dog and toe
eighth place runner.
Denslow also recommends that
fans who are somewhat new to the
sport, go out to the track and
watch the schooling races held
Mooday, Wednesday and Friday at
7 p. m., before the regular pro
grams. “It’s a good chance to get
a line on pups that have never
won an official race or who have
bees HI,” says Denslow.
to malting his own selections,
Denslow says be relies on past per
formance and post positions
just about the same system every
one uses but again be cautions
“take a good look at the dogs in
action.”
Denslow now owns an interest to
and is secretary of toe Yellowstone
Kennel Club, Billings, Montana. He
broke into dog racing fairly re
cently when he went to work at
the Black Hills Kennel Club as an
announcer.
He had earlier been associated
with radio station KOTA, Rapid
;City, South Dakota-as an announ
cer and as their farm director. He
;also announced live stock shows
and served as a livestock buyer.
As if that wasn’t enough of ani
imais, be raises thoroughbred show
