By FRANCIS E. STANN Dreamy Memoirs of a Year in Racing In resuming a sports critic’s casual reminiscences of the year 1947, begun a few days ago and left unfinished, it is advisable to devote a chapter to horse racing at least as comprehensive as any of the other industries, Including baseball and football. The wagering fell off, of course, but betting is not the best part of horse racing. To the horses, and to the solid horse people genuinely interested in what laughingly is called the improvement of the breed, it makes no difference whether the longest line forms at the $50 windows or the $5 and $2 windows. In some repects the most noteworthy advance 1__ AM Q Tlllv HflV flf. "Rpl mont Park. Long Island, when the first Interna tional Gold Cup race, for $100,000 at a distance of a mile and 5 furlongs, was run. It was not an out standing success as an event, drawing only three horses from other lands, but it was a great race between two American horses, Natchez and Stymie, Fr»nM« e. sunn. and the Gold Cup promoters had at least set the __ pattern of a truly international race. The foreign horses, led by Ensueno from Brazil, and Endeavour from Argentina, hardly made it a bona fide international race on their own, but few as they were and badly as they ran, they competed, at least, and not only are Brazilian and Argentina horses promised for next year, but English and French entries as well. Man o' War Was Mourned as If Human * On November 1, in a royal equine bedchamber outside of Lex ington, Ky., Man o’ War passed away and such was the legend that he had become that a horse was mourned as if he had been human. Only a short time before, newsreels running in theaters through out the Nation showed America's most famous racing steed on his 30th birthday anniversary. He had been groomed for the cameras by loving stablehapds, but the swayback of the old gentleman couldn’t be disguised as he still-posed. Then they let him run for those cameramen and men and women and boys and girls wfio never saw Man o’ War thrilled to the pictures as they photographed him in slow motion, still powerful muscles carry ing the ancient steed over his beloved bluegrass. When he died they observed 1-minute silences at some of the hoss parks. Not a creature was stirring; not even a tout. People read obituaries and listened to Man o’ W*r stories on the radio and some quietly sniffed. Racing had lost a symbol. Man o’ War was the best in a game that can achieve pulse quickening heights and high drama and also sink incredibly low, not due to anv fault of the thoroughbred but to the greed, cruelty and machinations of man, his master. Just as Man o’ War epitomized the finest in racing, so did the cheats who doped and dyed ringer* . 1_.J SU. nmref Cyi lA/imuv. u -- Never Did So Many Win So Much From an economic standpoint, 1947 in racing was without parallel as concerns money won—not by one horse, but by three. It may be that never again in history will any horse top a former claiming horse named Stymie in amount earned. At. the end of the year Stymie had won $816,060. a world record. Stymie is a smallish veteran who has been to the races more than four times as often as Man o' War. Not, only that, but Man o' War never ran for a fraction of the purse money of Mrs. Ethel Jacobs cam paigner. They never can he compared, nor will they be by turf experts. Man o’ War was a great horse, beaten only once in his career. Stymie hardly is great. He is willing and dead game but he happened to be racing in a day when $50,000 purses were commonplace and $100,000 races far from unusual. As a matter of fact, there is considerable doubt as to whether Stymie was even the best horse of 1947. In point of money won, yes, but there was another horse, a gelding named Armed, and you can get an argument nearly anytime two track enthusiasts gather. When the year started Whirlaway, a Man o’ War colt, was the leading money winner with $561,161 but the 4-year-o!d Assault, Stymie and Armed were chasing him hard. Assault passed Whirly. Then Stymie overtook Assault. Then Assault again, then Stymie, then Armed and, finally, Stymie once more. There were three stables in the United States In no danger of winding up broke. Colonials, Terps End Vacations To Tune for Vital Court Tilts By Merrell Whittlesey George Washington and Mary land Universities basket ball squads ended their Christmas vacation to day as both reported back a week ahead of the students to get. in heavy work for important Southern Con ference tests. Meanwhile Georgetown continues Its road trip with little to look for ward to as the Hoyas meet three unbeaten teams this week, St. Louis on Tuesday, Louisville, Thursday, and Western Kentucky, Friday. All three are prominent among the Nation's court leaders, the Billikens with five straight triumphs, Louis ville with seven and Western Ken tucky w'ith six. me American university squaa will return to practice sessions on Friday while Catholic U. and Navy, which do not play until next week end. plan to observe the full holiday layoff. The Colonials, who now have sup planted Georgetown as the District representative among the country's college court powers, are considering next Monday's clash with North Carolina State in Raleigh as their most important game of the season. If State, the defending Conference champion, can beat Holy Cross in the Sugar Bowl attraction tomorrow night, it will rank close to the top in the Nation. The Wolfpack has won 9 out of 10, losing to West Virginia in Morgantown where the Mountaineers have a home court winning streak of several seasons. Although it's looking a bit far ahead, the Wolfpack-G. W. game could decide the Conference pennant and top-ranking in the tournament in March. Thus Coach Art Zahn of G. W. is taking no chances and the players were willing to forfeit their vacation to be ready for the Raleigh invasion. Maryland has a Saturday night date with North Carolina, unbeaten in five games, but untested in the Pnnfnronoo <a r\ H tllP OIH Liners remain over to play Duke next Monday in Durham. After the Duke game Coach Flucie St.ewart will regain the four courtmen cur rently with the Gator Bowl football squad, with Vic Turyn, the T formation quarterback, the most important member. Stewart said early in the season that Maryland would not hit its peak until February’ 1. but by that time the Terps may be finding it tough to remain in the Conference's upper bracket. They have won three out of five to date and two out ot three in the loop. Georgetown's dismal showings Iasi week against Santa Clara and Loy ola of New Orleans, teams that have lost three and four games, respec tively, left the Hoya rooters puzzlec and disappointed. The sudden col laps of the team alter six impressive triumphs was a bitter blow and als< was bad for the team’s morale, witl the toughest competition of the sea son coming up in the next six days On a given night Georgetown coule beat- any of them, but it's also fair!; obvious that the Hoyas are goini to lose a lot on their murderou achedule. Coach Staff Cassell of Americai TJ. called the Washington boy* at 9 his team to an impromptu practice session last Saturday afternoon, and his fears were confirmed—that the players were out of shape after just one week of rich Christmas living. The Eagles have an important week coming up, starting next Mon dav night, when they entertain Loyola of Baltimore, defending champion in the Mason-Dixon Conference, Penn ’ State and the Quantico Marines. Cassell has scheduled two workouts a day Fri day through Sunday and all the players on hand wili watch Loyola play North Carolina New Year eve in Baltimore. The Maryland squad also will scout the game for a look at the Tar Heels. Alabama and Texas Emphasize Defense , By the Associated Press NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 29.—With (New Orleans bursting at the seams as visitors roll in for the Sugar Bowl midwinter carnival of sports the football teams of Alabama and | Texas were each emphasizing de I fense as they prepped for their ;New Year Day game. j At Biloxi, Miss., Alabama Coach | Harold "Red” Drew had the gates j closed to the public today, but yes terday had the first two teams work in 17 aeainxt, Tpxa.s nlavs in : dummy scrimmage.

The Crimson Tide will continue to practice at Biloxi until Wednes day, when the 38-man squad leaves for New Orleans. The Steers will leave Austin to morrow afternoon, arriving in New Orleans early Wednesday. They will work out in the Sugar Bowl Wednesday afternoon in their last drill before the game. Canadian Coach Praises U. S. Olympic Ice Team By the Associated Press BOSTON, Dec. 29.—The 1948 Uni ted States Olympic hockey team, which outskated the powerful Uni versity of Toronto sextet, 7-4. Sat 1 urday, is described by Toronto Coach Ace Bailey, former big leaguer, as "a good team.” That observation from the astute Bailey was made after the blue var sity had been defeated by the United States team before 5,900 fans at Boston Arena. Bailey, whose playing career was cut short a decade and a half ago when he suffered a severe skull frac ' ture in a game against the Bruins . in Boston, is not one to toss such , statements around loosely. ‘I— AUTO REPAIRING aid REPAINTING BOOT AMD WMPMW «OU MaMabaa Glavraltf, laa. 023 S*»r|i«A^N.W. PC. 0100 Hulse's Record Run Hints Fast Time in Star Meet New York Ace, Victor In Sugar Bowl, Faces Tough Rivals Here Special Dispatch to Th» Star NEW ORLEANS. Dec. 29.—If BUI Hulse of the New York A. C. main tains the pace in next Saturday’s Evening Star track meet in Wash ington that he hit here yesterday in winning the Sugar Bowl meet’s 1,500-meter run, Washington fans may be treated to a 4:15 indoor mile, or better. Hulse, the former New York Uni versity distance runner who holds the American outdoor mile mark of 4:56, broke the Sugar Bowl 1,500 meter mark set by Archie San Rnmani nf Kansas in 1940 bv 6.2 seconds in beating Penn State’s Gerald Karver, national champion and an old nemesis, to the tape. Hulse will run in the Indoor mile in Washington’s huge National Guard Armory, a race that is 120 yards longer than the distance he ran yesterday, but his remarkable time for the early season competi tion left little doubt that he is set for his specialty. Twomey Finishes Fourth. Hulse's competition in the hand picked seven man field yesterday included one of his opponents in The Star games, John Twomey of Illinois, who finished fourth. Twomey led with a 64-second first lap, but Hulse, Karver and Tommy Quinn of the New York A. C. passed him after he set the pace. Browning Ross of Villanova, who finished in the 3,000-meter steeple chase in the Sugar Bowl meet, will drop down to his favorite distance in The Star games, the mile. Ross, who was topped by Forest Efaw of Stillwater, Okla* and Billy Overton of Auburn yesterday, has run the mile in 4:11.6, but tried the longer distance here. Other participants here yesterday who will head for Washington in cluded Bill Mitchell of Georgetown, who ran third in the 110-meter high hurdles to Ross Nichols of Okla Vinma A nnH vi/Vi urnn in t record-breaking time of 14.5, and Dick Maxwell of Ohio State. Mitch ell, a former National Junior, IC4A Invitation and Philadelphia In quirer meet champion, will run the 70-yard high hurdles in Washing ton. Miller Runs Third. Jimmy Miller of North Carolina, Southern Conference 2-mile cham pion, who will run the 1,000 in The Star games, was third in the 3,000 meter run here to Jerry Thompson of Texas and Curtis Stone of Penn State, with Thompson's 8:35.4 a new Sugar Bowl record. Figuring Hulse's record run yes terday on the basis of a mile, it would be about a 4:12 outdoor mile and 4:15 Indoor without spikes, which will be the condition preva lent in The Star meet, Washing ton's biggest in more than a decade. The fastest Indoor mile ever run in Washington was a 4:15 by Gil Dodds in the Catholic University games at Riverside Stadium in 1942. but that was over a 12-lap track and Hulse will be running over a 220 track of only 8 laps. The fewer laps w’ill make for faster time. Rugged Competition. Hulse, serious about winning ar Olympic berth, will meet ruggec competition in Washington. In ad dition to Twomey and Ross there will be Jack Milne of North Caro lina, the national collegiate cross country champion and Southern Conference mile winner; Nick Smusyn of Navy, who has run a 4:19 mile; George Troxel of Virginia, the State two-mile record holder, and William Berger of Columbia, who also has run a 4:19 mile. The event will be the Junior Board of Trade Invitation. Hulse w-as satisfied with the fourth spot as Twomey. Karver and Quinn alternated in the lead here yester day and the w-inner dki not. take the lead until he sprinted ahead only 20 yards from the tape. Hulse continued on the outside to edge TT „ iu.A In the 3,000-meter steeplechase, one of the mast arduous races in any track meet, Ross_ barely lost second place to Overton, but both trailed Efaw by about 75 yards. The winner’s time was 9:24.0. Hulse will remain here for the Alabama-Texas football game on New Year Day and will drive to Washington with several perform ers slated to compete in The Star games, first stop on the indoor meet schedule.

Conferences aimed at consum mating a deal for the National Football League club Were set for today. The Detroit combine planned to meet with League Commissioner Bert Bell and later with Mandel. How long it takes to complete the transaction will hinge on Man dbl's price. The Chicago depart ment store executive, who has held the franchise since 1940. reportedly will ask $250,000 or $300,000. The conference with Bell was ar ranged presumably to straighten out contractual matters involving Head Coach Gus Dorais and As sistant Coaches Joe Bach and Bob Winslow. Mand*l made it plain several weeks ago that Dorais and Bach would not be retained next year and Winslow also probably would go if the team is sold. Dorais’ five-year contract has four years to run, but provides for settle monf ■wrifVi «iv mnnt.hs' “severance pay” in case the club ownership changes hands. Dorais insists, how ever, that Mandel’s notice of dismis sal before the sale makes him liable for the remaining four years, at $25,000 annually. Mentioned as possibilities for the coaching job are Notre Dame's Prank Leahy, Michigan's Fritz Cris ler, Paul Brown of the Cleveland Browns and many others. Lyle Fife, owner of an electrical supply firm, heads the syndicate which already has incorporated as the Detroit Football Co. Other members are Walter O. (Spike» Briggs. jr„ son of the owner of the Detroit baseball Tigers; Harry7 Wis mer, radio executive and sports caster, and Businessmen Charles Fisher, jr.; Edward Anderson, Art Hoffman and Bill Downey.

Two Thrillers Coming Up Leahy Picks S.M.U. and Texas To Win With Walker, Layne By Prank Leahy Notre Dame University CoacH Doak Walker and Bobby Layne, who have been pals since grade school days, will be playing quite a distance apart on New Year Day, but each lad will have his heart set on the same thing — mak ing it a big day for fel low Texans. In our opin ion, the lads are up to the | tough task ' ahead. At Dallas, Doak will lead his Southern Frank I.eahy Methodist teammates against unbeaten and untied Penn State, while farther around the Gulf j in New Orleans Bobby will spark | the University of Texas against . hard-to-handle Alabama. Only one thing is sure about i both affairs—the gridiron fur will ny in accompaniment what promises to be some real fancy passing. j The Penn State lads, under the : tutoring of Bob Higgins, fought ! their way through, to a perfect season. They answered every test of an exacting coach. Neverthe less. we feel that Matty Bell's Mustangs will emerge victorious after a very thrilling afternoon. Red Drew’s Crimson Tide lost early season games to Tulane (21-20) and Vanderbilt by a one touchdown margin. Then the Tide, set ablaze by Harry Gil mer's deadly passing, came surg ing back to win seven straight games. Alabama’s victims in cluded Georgia, Georgia Tech and Kentucky, a tough three some in any company.

In short, we think the caliber of football played down Texas way this last season was ar. nigh as the blue skies above the Rio Grande.

In Gilmer Alabama also pos sesses an inspirational type leader, but we feel he isn’t backed with quite as much strength as Davne. Penn State, with the great Steve Suhey at guard and Jeff Durkota in the backfield. is a grand all-round team, but in our opinion, lacking in that certain final flair for al out drama.

Gonzales Beats Mulloy To Spice Bowl Tennis By the Associated Press NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 29 — Richard “Pancho" Gonzales of Los Angeles has smashed, lobbed and fought his way into what looks to to be an enviable position in the Sugar Bowl invitational tennis tourney here.

Today Gonzales figures to breeze into the final round of play, Mulloy’s No. 3 United States rating meant nothing to the 15th ranked Californian yesterday as hf completely took the play away from the favorite before a partisan crowd howling for an upset. There’s a good chance that Gon zales’ opponent in the final will b« No. 2 ranked Ted Schroeder ol Glendale, Calif. Gonzales needs only a victory over United States Junior Champion Herbert ’’Buddy’ Behrens of Rollins College to earn his finals berth.

Seixas and Larned, who battled yesterday to a 6—4, 4—0 draw when darkness halted play, will meet today in a deciding set to determine who goes into the semi finals. Behrens advanced to the semi finals by virtue of a 10—8. 6—1 vic tory over Richard Balbiers, Rollins College student who is champion of Chile. Schroeder won his quarterfinals match from Herbert Flam of Los Angeles, rated 18th nationally, by scores of 7—5, 5—7, 6—1. Maryland and Georgia Expected to Count Heavily on Passes By George Huber Star Staff Corr«pend«nt JACKSONVILLE. El*.. Dec. 29 — A lot of passing Is in store for the 23,000 Gator Bowl fans who will turn out Thursday for the battle between Maryland and Georgia. Georgia's main offensive this year has been the passing of Johnny Rauch, who was bested only by Mis sissipi's Charley Conerly as a col legiate aerialist this season, and there’s no reason to suspect that Coach Wally Butts is going to change Georgia's tactics. Indications are that Maryland, which has had a well-rounded at tack almost equally divided between tossing and running, is going to use a lot more passes than usual In the New Year Day game. Much of Maryland’s last-minute practicing at the Naval Air Station near here has been devoted to its passing at tack as engineered around Quar terbacks Vic Turyn, Joe Tucker, Jack Tarearona and Stanford Levine. Running Attack Polished. Turyn and Tucker have been used by Coach Jim Tatum mast of the tirpe and they are doing very well in practice, but the possibili ties of both Targaroha and Levine must not be overlooked. Targarona saw little action this year and Levine none at all, but both are showing they are ready to step in and fill the quarterback slot for the , Terrapins with no trouble at all. Coach Tatum is not overlooking last-minute polishing of his run ning attack, however. Lu Gambino is the key man, and although the Bulldogs will be watching him par ticularly, they should have their hknds full stopping him. Also get ting plenty of practice running with the ball af£ Harry Bonk, the Old Liners’ main threat from the full back slot, and Halfbacks Johnny Idzik and Jim Larue. r Terps In Two-hour Drill. The Terrapins staged a two-hour workout yesterday morning, and took off the afternoon for a trip to St. Augustine and Marineland. Afternoon drills were on the slate for todav and tomorrow, with only chalk talks slated Wednesday, the dav before the game. More than half of yesterday’s time was spent on pass defense, an item in which the Terrapins have excelled all sea son, but which still must be at its best if the Old Liners hope to stop Rauch. The Terps did not scrimmage yesterday, having had a tough one the day before, but some individual linemen were put through blocking drills. No more contact work will be given them between now and game time. Coach Tatum appears fairly well pleased at the way things are go ing. and even goes so far as to admit that he thinks Maryland’s running attack is better than Georgia’s. He does give the Bulldogs an edge in the line and in its passing attack. Georgians to Work Out. Georgia's Coach Butts will be heard from later. He arrived today with a *squad of 44 players and had a light workout scheduled at the city baseball park. Only casualty on the Maryland squad is Coach Tatum. Tatum is the victim of a heavy cold, and had to forego yesterday’s sightseeing trip with the rest of the Old Liners. Trainer Duke Wyre reports all the players in exceptionally good shape, with “not even a hurt pinkie,” as he put it. The water, food and bil leting arrangements all agree with the players, and they are in excel lent spirits. CYO Cage Semifinals Scheduled Tonight The semifinals of the CYO Christ - 1 mas basket ball tournament will I take place tonight at the Nativity 1 School gym with Campus School ! opposing Our Lady of Victory and Nativity facing Our Lady of Lourdes.
