Washington, D. C., Thursday, May 4, 1944—A—20 **K j Derby Crowd of 70 Win, Lose or Draw BY DENMAN THOMPSON, 8t»r Sports Editor. Spring! But Huber's Fancy Lightly Turns to War This department is heavily bedecked in crepe today, with flags •t half staff, mourning the passing of one of its chief props, a bespectacled, mustachioed bozo called Huber, first name George. On second thought, from the foregoing delete "one of” and knock the "s" off props—just in the interest of accuracy. Not, it hastily must be added, that he has passed aw’ay in the generally accepted meaning of the term. On the contrary, he is (from our personal viewpoint) in such a disgusting state of good health that his draft board gleefully put the finger on him. Followed, then, the inevitable "greeting” from the com mander in chief and yesterday he reported for induction, at Fort Meade with a bunch of others from nearby Maryland. In departing this (sporting) life for a bigger assignment than any he has yet known, the tallish, spare-framed fellah with the thinning thatch evinced a matter-of-fact attitude that was in sharp contrast to that of the overage associates he left behind in a frame of mind some thing like that of a cripple without a crutch. Unimbued with any sense of impor tance from by-lines he had earned and with a full realization that in becoming just a number in the Army his destiny merely paralleled that of countless other thousands of thirtyish, pre-Pearl Harbor fathers, he kissed the wife and kiddy good-by and simply hied himself hence to do his bit. George Follows Through in Typical Fashion Not, however, without attending in advance to details that gave evidence in the matter of forethought of the training that made him the good reporter he was. In addition to such obvious items as making out his will and clearing up all personal affairs, including the framing of a family budget designed to cope with all contingencies in absentia, he bethought himself of a plan calculated to greatly ease the burden of the poor oafs doomed to the formidable task of attempting to fill his ample brogans. This included a typed outline of his daily schedule of multi farious duties, with names, addresses and phone numbers of his Innumerable sources of information, together with data on the pro pensities and foibles of performers in the various branches of athletics within his ken, all neatly arranged and complete with legible card Index. A gratuitous gesture, that, typical of a chap held in high esteem by all with whom he came in contact and illustrative of the combina tion of loyalty to employer and consideration for confreres that make him eligible for even so halting an encomium as this. And if the be nighted dubs left to carry on in his stead can’t turn in a passable Job it won’t be his fault. He's Come a Long Way the Truly Hard Way It must be assumed that toilers who never are late, who don’t watch the clock and who perform their stint with intelligence, effi ciency and good humor are not uncommon, but it may be doubted that many ever combined these attributes in greater degree than the subject of this discourse. Boy and man we’ve seen a lot of ’em, and this one, as they say around the paddock, stands out. For an hombre who as a lad was what the sociologists are wont to call underprivileged he came a long way—the hard way—and in our estimation Gen. Marshall is entitled to congratulations on acquiring the makin’s of a good soldier, ’cause Huber can’t miss. From the foregoing you may gather that we are feeling somewhat akin to a bereaved father, in which case you won’t be far wide of the mark. And if you get the impression that he is one of our favorite persons—then, brother, you’re right on the beam. As a matter of fact, despite increased living costs, the shortage of gas, upped taxes and such, it wasn’t until this morning that there was brought home to us a foil realization of the fact that war is on— you know what! But one final bit of evidence regarding the thoroughness with which he absorbed the precepts of his profession, the last thing he wrote to come over our desk. It was a note bespeaking the contin uance of his practice of mooching weekly fight ducats for his in-laws. ' Okay, George. Lowly Anacostia Nine Wins Impressively Anacostia High, in the cellar of the interhigh league, showed class yesterday in beating the Charlotte Hall nine, 13 to 0.

Chances of his being called appear slight, as he will reach 38 October 12. Boudreau got a 4-F classifica tion at the Chicago preinduction center yesterday because of an arthritic condition in his right ankle, which he fractured in 1934 and refractured in 1940.

Nearby War Workers Will Swell Throng; Stir Up Odds Sink By CHARLES Dl'NKLEY, Associated Press Sports *Writer. LOUISVILLE, May 4.—Within 48 hours all the folks the Office of Transportation said couldn't get to the Kentucky Derby because of travel restrictions will be in or around Louisville awaiting the 70th running of the historic event on Saturday. A crowd of 70,000 spectators will be in the roaring, %-mile long grand stand. or sprawling over the land scaped infield, according to estimates today. This would be an increase of 10,000 over the attendance of a year ago, when the event became a “streetcar derby” and was restricted mainly to residents of the Louisville area. There will be no special trains from distant points, as in prewar years, or extra Pullmans attached to regular trains entering Louisville; yet, everybody wanting to get here will do so and get home again, richer and poorer. That feeling is in the air. Already hotel and transporta tion facilities are taxed to the limit. War Plants Produce Throng. A large share of the crowd, of course, will come from the Louisville district which at present is roaring with 15 immense war plants and dozens of smaller ones, employing 100,000 workers; soldiers by the thousands at two major Army bases and at nearby Port Knox, second largest Army ramp in the Nation. Churchill Downs, the home of the Derby, has no trouble with clientele. Customers with plenty of money in their wallets seem to be in abun dance. The Derby situation today indi cated that a field of possibly 12 or 14 thoroughbreds will accept the issue of challenging the already estab lished favorite, Mrs. Payne Whit ney’s Stir Up, which may go to the post at odds of 6 to 5. The analytical observers are not overlooking Broadcloth, Skytracer, Alorter, Autocrat and Pensive, par ticularly Pensive, the entry of War ren Wright’s Calumet Farm, trained by “Plain Ben” Jones. There is a magic touch to Jones, who sent Lawrin winging to victory in the 1938 Derby and Whirlaway in 1941. Scramble for Jockeys. The scramble to sign up dis tinguished riders for Saturday’s $75,000 run for the roses is going on undiminished. Mrs. George Poul son of Los Angeles, owner of Broad cloth, was endeavoring to induce Johnny Longden to come from New York to get into the driver's seat. Longden knows his way around Churchill Downs for he was the young man at the controls when Mrs. John O. Hertz’s Count Fleet romped to victory last year. Conn McCreary, who will have the mount on Pensive; Jack West rope, scheduled to pilot Gay Bit; Johnny Adams, who again will be intrusted with Alorter, and swarthy Eddie Arcaro aboard Stir Up will be the only “name” jockeys in the race, provided Longden doesn’t show up. Arcaro, twice a Derby winner with Lawrin and Whirlaway, will be of immeasurable help to Sir Up. Ar caro knows every inch of that Downs strip, including all the shortcuts. Barons Defeat Preps, End Losing Streak Bethesda-Chevy Chase has ended its baseball slump. After winning their first three games the Barons went into a tailspin, which ended yesterday with a 7-to-3 defeat of Georgetown Prep on the latter’s field. It was the third victory for George Myers, Bethesda pitcher, who held the Little Hoyas to six hits. Chris Chappell and Vernon Ricketts led the Baron hitting with each getting two for four. S'.

Griffs' Knuckle Ball Threat Fades as Leondard's Wing Ails, Wolff Disappoints; Bosox Victors By JOHN B, KELLER, Star Staff Correspondent. PORT DIX, N. J., May 4.—That knuckleball section of the Wash ington club’s pitching staff that had opposing outfits quaking even at mere mention of it before the season got under way may not prove as potent as expected. It looked powerful on paper, at least when it included four in its ranks, but with the veteran Dutch Leonard now out of action possibly for some time and Roger Wolff not per forming up to the standard antici pated of him the butterfly brigade doesn’t promise to get the Nats very far. Leonard's failure to get away to a good start particularly has Man ager Os Bluege worried. Dutch’s season debut was delayed for some time as he complained of a sore back and when he finally did start— against the New York Yankees in Washington last Saturday—he gave up the task after five innings. His excuse then was a recurrence of the back ailment. In Boston yesterday, Leonard tried again. It was a good day for a veteran moundsman to toil. It was warm and there was no wind to bother a pitcher. Yet Leonard withdrew after the second inning in which the Red Sox got a brace of runs to start them on their way to an 11-to-10 win. Leonard Develops Sore Arm. A walk, a pair of singles and a sacrifice got those runs for the home side to give it a 2-1 lead, but it didn’t appear that the kind of pitching Leonard W’as doing war ranted his retirement. Later it was announced that Leonard had developed a sore arm in addition to back trouble. The manage ment of the Nats was very mysteri ous in discussing the pitcher dif ficulties, but it doesn’t seem that Dutch will be out on the hill again very soon. Wolff’s case is different. Roger simply has not pitched the kind of ball he indicated he would pitch by his work in the training cam paign. He was off in his perform ance against the Yanks in his season debut in New York and was wabbly as he won over the Red Sox in Bos ton Monday. Called to the hill yesterday for a relief role, he pitched to just three batters and these came through with two singles and a double to send four runs over the plate and take the game from the Nats. Of course, Wolff was working with only a day of rest after his winning effort, but it seemed more could have been expected of him. After all, there were two out with three on when he took over to give him a good opportunity to retire the side quickly . But Roger didn’t have any more polish to his pitching than he did in his two previous appearances in the championship campaign. It may be merely a matter of a slow start with him, but Nat officials admit he isn’t producing as they were confident he would. Up to Niggeling and Haefner. All of which leaves the knuckle balling situation up to Johnny Niggeling and Mickdy Haefner. Both have looked good, although between them they have contributed just one win—that by Niggeling over the Red Sox Tuesday. That free-for-all yesterday saw the Nats get away to a fair start off the left-handed Vic Johnson, making his first major league ap pearance, and the right-handed Joe Bowman, but a triple by Bob John son and Bobby Doerr's homer over the left-field fence in the fifth off Milo Candini put the Red Sox in front. Stan Spence's 380-foot home run into the right-field stands in the sixth scored Candini, who had doubled, to give the Nats another Yankees and Phillies, Behind Snappy Pitching, Are Eyeing Top Rung; Cubs Drop 10th in Row By JACK HAND, Asiociated PresB Sports Writer Gaudy pitching strings by the Yankees and Phillies served today to help the orphaned Chicago Cubs escape attention in their continued tunneling under the National League cellar with 10 straight defeats. While the world champs have allowed the enemy only five runs in winning their last four games and the Bluejays have yielded only six scores in the same stretch, the St. Louis leaders have had reason to take a hurried look back over their shoulders. Luke Sewell's Browns can't afford to let up, for the New Yorkers are ready to take control in the Amer ican and the Phils, although tied for second with Cincinnati, are only a game and a half back of the Cards. Berating of Cubs Useless. While the Cub owners checked the list of managerial possibilities, the Bruins failed to be inspired by a tongue lashing from Acting Man ager Roy Johnson and stumbled before Cincinnati, 10-4. Tom De Laz Cruz of the Reds bagged his second big league victory with the help of 17 hits. Big Bill Lee was the latest Phil to stand up and shine. He missed a shutout after having two out in the ninth when Mel Ott homered, but he had little trouble trimming the Giants, 7-1. He gave 5 hits. Lloyd Waner dropped down a perfect squeeze play bunt in a ninth-inning rally that gave Brook lyn a 4-3 edge over Boston. Augie Galan’s double with the bases loaded had tied it up to set the stage for the strategy. Whitey Kurowski went on a one man rampage against Pittsburgh and bopped Rip Sewell for two home runs in St. Louis’ 5-1 trumph. The "blooper ball” expert gave only six blows but the two he gave Kurow ski cost him four runs and the ball game. Tenth in Row for Borowy. Hank Borowy stretched his per sonal holdover streak to 10 victories in a row by parceling out six Ath letics singles in a 3-1 Yankee de cision over Luke Hamilin. With pitching by Borowy and Ernie Bon ham showing the way, the Yanks now have won their last games but scored a total of only 12 runs. Mel Harder will be gunning for his 200th major league win next time out. The Tribe vet made it 199 yesterday with a 9-4 edge over Chicago. Roy Cullenbine made it easier with three doubles and a single. Jack Kramer became the first big leaguer to win four games but had to be told about it in the club if irs AUTO RADIO | Repair*—Installation*—See |f i L. S. JULLIEN, Inc. I I 1443 P ST. N.W.

Partee opened the attack with a loft to short left that fell for a sin gle when Torres lost the ball be cause of sun and wind. Lake got a pass off Candini, but when Mike Ryba, third pitcher sent in by the home side, bunted Partee was erased at third base. Culberson forced out Ryba. Then things happened. Myatt with a good chance to com plete a side-retiring double play threw wide of first so when Pox walked the bases were packed. That brought on Wolff. Bang went a single off Joe Cronin’s bat to send over two runs. That might have been all had the Nat infield not gone haywire. Pox had gone far enough off third to be trapped as Cronin headed for second, hoping to draw a throw and give Fox an opportunity to tally. Cronin's Homer Seals Game. But the Nats threw the ball all around the place with Myatt finally tossing wide again, this time to Torres off third. So Cronin made second and Pox scrambled back to third base. Bang went a single off Bob Johnson’s bat and two more runs went across. A double by Doerr did nothing more than bring Santiago Ullrich to the rescue. Off Ullrich, Cronin sealed the game for the Red Sox by hitting the first pitch in the eighth inning over the left-field wall. Three hits for two Nat runs in the eighth and a tally from Kuhel’s double and Ferrell’s single in the ninth made Cronin's four-baser vitaL Spence, Ortiz and Torres with three hits each were rough on the Red Sox pitchers as the Nats outhit the winners, 16 to 15, but Bob John son’s two hits and Cronin’s three were the damaging blows of the game. Between them, these two knocked over seven runs. Cronin shook up his Red Sox Line-up considerably and started in a game for the first time this year posting himself at first base. He was there with the punch in the big Red Sox sixth and copped for his side in the eighth. Ullrich looked good under fire. He stepped in at a tough time in the sixth when the Red Sox were red hot. Outside of Cronin’s homer, the only run off him, he gave up a pass, a single and a double in 2>/3 innings of toil. Case still has a very sore knee and wasn’t expected to play here, today as the Nats met the repre sentative team of Fort Dix in a twilight game. ' Devitt Halts Claveloux Of Sf.Anthony's, 10-8; Blair Also Upset A pair of upsets in schoolboy base ball yesterday emphasized the bewhiskered adage: “You can t win ’em all.” Bernie Claveloux, sensational St. ’ Anthony's hurler and strike out king of the prep league, suffered his first defeat this year when Devitt trounced the Saints, 10-8, on the Taft Junior High diamond. In the other upset Montgomery Blair took its first licking of the season, with Central a 7-3 winner on the Vikings’ field. St. Anthony’s, behind the knuckle balling of Southpaw Claveloux, has been slapping down some fast op position. The Saints swamped a highly rated Tech team, 9-1, earlier this year, and in their initial game beat Devitt, 8 to 7. Yesterday’s contest, however, was another story. Claveloux, whose record of 45 strikeouts in four games, accounting for nearly half the put outs made by his team, is likely to stand for a while, had an off day and yielded 12 hits. V W r lh A® ?,?
