Coaltown Sets Mark In Stars and Stripes At Arlington Park •y th« As>eciat*d fr— CHICAGO, July 5.—Coaltown celebrated Independence Day in thoroughbred fashion yesterday by winning the Stars and Stripes Handicap at Arlington Park and *38,700 for his owner, Warren Wright. The Calumet Farm cannonball hot only won the 1 Vi-mile holi day feature, but clipped ■% of a second off the track record of 1:49Vs as he scampered home a length and a quarter in front of Armed, the veteran 8-year-old campaigner from the same stable. Steve Brooks rode the winner on his swift journey in 1:4825. The Calumet entry. 2 to 5 fa vorite of the sweltering crowd of 30,694, paid $2.80 to win and $2.80 to place. There was no show betting. In third place, half a length back of Armed, was Dixiana Sta ble's Star Reward, the horse which upset Coaltown by three lengths in the recent Equipoise Mile. It was Coaltown’s only de feat in nine previous races this •eason. Woolford Farm’s Delegate, King Ranch’s Better Self and Oscar J. Breault’s Brolite completed the six-horse field. The old Arlington record of 1:49Vs had been held jointly by two Calumet stablemates, Armed and Citation. The Stars and Stripes victory brought his 1949 winnings to *179,825 and his two-year earn ings to $284,475. The 4-year-old eon of Bull Lea-Easy Lass did not race as a 2-year-old because of injury. The winner carried 130 pounds, 20 more than Armed and Delegate and nine more than Star Reward. Four D. C. Area Skippers Victors in Baltimore Special Dispatch to The Star BALTIMORE.

Share Laurels in Hampton Regatta By Malcolm Lamborne, Jr. Star Staff Correspondent HAMPTON, Va., July 5.—Rough, tough little outboards, for the second year, stole the show in Hampton Yacht Club's annual regatta which ended here yester day and two Washington drivers had an important share in the Independence Day show. Ike Hale and Hudson Moses, both of Washington, along with Vic Scott of Forest Hills, L. I., and J. B. Broaddus of Fredericksburg, took home most of the cash prizes. Scott and Broaddus tied for high point honors with 1.325 each; then came Hale with 1,092 and Moses, with 784. The Long Island driver might have been the top man of the day but for a bit of Hampton Creek debris, which he struck while in second position in the second heat for class F hydroplanes. It bent his prop, his engine started vibrat ing badly and Scott decided to call it a day. Here is the score for the hot outboard quarter: Scott, first in class C hydros, second in class B hydros and fourth in class F; Broaddus, first in class F (with two firsts) and third in class C. Hale, second in classes C and F; Moses, third in class F and fourth in class C. The four drivers started feud ing the first time they got to gether—their initial heat for class Cs—Scott finished first, Broad dus second, Moses third and Hale fourth. They kept it up right to the final gun. Wes Lesby of Washington tied for second-place honors in the stock utility series, with his Miss i Bell, but he was declared No. 2 | driver in the class by making | faster time than his rival. The | winner was Jimmy Thompson of Yorktown, Va.. who was driving an engine with 11 horsepower more than Miss Bell. Lusby disclosed later that Miss Bell really started to go after Thompson gave him some special lubricant which loosened his en gine and permitted him to get a little more out of Miss Bell. Prizes and checks were awarded by Commodore Russell Buxton and Regatta Chairman Harry "Cootie” Holt. Fireworks and a marine parade wound up the show last night. Lanham Track Repaired For Stock Car Racing Repairs and reinforcements have been completed on the Lanham Speedway in readiness for stock car races there tomorrow night.

As of this date no one has won more 1949 tournaments. No one has won more money. And no one has won more hearts among the fans, not only this year, but at any time within the last two decades. He has become more synonymous with golf at its very best than any one since Bob Jones. The $15,000 Washington Star Open became another step closer toward a special pedestal the Vir ginia slammer has been climbing since 1937. when he electrified the sport with phenomenal scores, a wholly refreshing personality, and a swing that graced the game like a Shakespearean sonnet among a collection of nursery rhymes. Snead is reaching the top of a pedestal that definitely is special because in every department of the game he has been outshone. Several players have better rec «rds—Jones, Walter Hagen, Gene arazen. for instance. Several players have been better hitters of the ball — Harry Vardon and Byron Nelson, for instance. And, for example, several such as Hagen and Ben Hogan have won more money. But no one has generated the fanaticism, the gen eral sympathy and downright love of the fans that Snead has. No one dislikes him, which probably is something you cannot say about any other golfer. Sluggers Have It Out When Sam teed off in company with Chick Harbert and Skip Alexander yesterday another title of sorts was to be determined un officially. These three stand as the longest hitters in the game. It was going to be interesting to see who hit the longest shots. Alexander grabbed an early lead not only by reaching the first green, but knocking his first shot less than 6 feet from the cup. He holed out for an eagle 2. Harbert also landed on the green, but con siderably short of Alexander’s effort. This was the last hole in which Alexander drove the farthest. Harbert was longest on the sec ond and Snead on the third. On the fourth hole Harbert managed to get the edge again, proceeded to knock his second a few scant feet from the pin for an easy eagle 3. After an interim for the par 3 hole which followed Harbert went out in front again with a 300 yarder. Snead got the nod on No. 7, but it was Harbert again on No. 8, as well as on No. 9. Snead started to get back into the tee-shot battle on the 10th. It was also fast becoming obvious that he’d better get back into the tournament battle, for by this time both Harbert and Alexander had picked up four shots apiece on him. When Snead and Alexander birdied the 10th, Harbert threw himself out of The Star Open title by taking a bogey 6 on this hole that every one else had been birdying consistently. Heafner Is Nonchalant as Winner of $650 By Lewis F. Atchison Big Clayton Heafner was sipping a beer in the locker room with some golf cronies late yesterday afternoon when somebody sud denly said the broad-beamed Tar Heel had won some money. “I did?” Heafner asked inno cently. “Where’d I finish?” It developed he tied Jim Fer rier of San Francisco for eighth place with a final round of 71 and grand total of 280. It was eight strokes above Winner Sammy Snead’s 272 total in The Wash ington Star Open golf tourna ment at Prince Georges Country Club, but Heafner had no com plaints. It was worth $650 to him. “I’m playing consistent golf,” he told a reporter, “but nothing sensational. You’ve got to be con sistent most of the way and have a couple of red hot spurts to get top money in these tournaments. Well, I’m making expenses, any way.” _ “You gonna take that boat ride coining up and hobnob with the king and queen and that crowd?” asked Buck White, who tied for 12th spot with 282. Heafner nodded at White’s ref erence to the Ryder Cup matches coming up September. Pros ac cumulate points throughout the tournament season toward berths on the United States team. "I think I had enough points to make the team before this tourna ment, but finishing in the first 10 here won’t hurt any.” “They’ll get you over there and clip that mustache and make a real Britisher out of you,” said Henry Williams. “But they’ll never be able to make him talk like one,” added Glenn Teal. A vociferous hanger-on with a bad case of too much sun kept in sisting that Heafner should have won the National Open champion ship last* month when he tied Sammy Snead for second place at 287, one stroke behind Champion Cary Middlecoff. Heafner took the annoying diatribe in stride, although Vic Ghezzi playfully re fused to let it die down by asking the intruder what he thought about the windup of the National Open when it seemed he had ex hausted- his vocabulary. That opened a fresh torrent of abuse. “I’ve got a good mind to stick him under a shower and cool him off,” Heafner finally said. The big North Carolinian said losing the open crown was a bit ter disappointment and through out the final day of the grind he thought he’d win until he bogged down with a six on the 12th hole. “Even after that I made a nice comeback and thought I might' still do it,” he said, “but it just wasn’t my day. When that last putt hung on the lip of the cup i was pretty low. “I’ll never come that close again,” he added. “If I ever get that close again I’ll win it.” On Nos. 11 and 12 It was Snead again out front. Harbert took over on 13 and Snead made the mistake of being longest on the 14th, a par 3 job which Sam overhit by 25 feet. On No. 15 Snead went more than 350 yards with his drive, al though Harbert was just a few feet behind. Alexander cold topped his, probably didn’t hit it 75 yards. So far as driving goes, it was dead even between Snead and Harbert at this point. Harbert let go with his Fourth of July best on 16, flew it over the green on the par-3 17th, and left it just short of the final green to win the mythical title. Sam Snead's win in The Star Open left about 93 others think ing of new ways to make a living. Only those who shot 3-under-par golf or better got money in the tournament. These low 25 had to shoot remarkable golf, and a lot of others were slightly remark able. but received nothing. Like A1 Smith and Ky Laffoon, who stood 1-2 after the first day with scores of 64 and 65. respectively, and yet did not even finish when they found themselves incapable of maintaining the pace.

July 5.—Eze quiel Navarra, three-cushion bil liard champion of Argentina, de feated Willie Hoppe, the world titlehoider, 100 to 92, last night in the first round of a 10-day, 1.500-point match. Outdoors —With Bill Uetch SARANAC LAKE, N. Y.—Camp ing here certainly is the life. Just sleeping (under two or three blankets every night) eating and fishing. This spot is so lovely that just being here would suf fice and the fish one catches are a wonderful feonus thrown in. Were catching plenty of smallmouths to make it ex tremely inter esting and en tertaining with out being com p 1 e t e 1 y sur- Bil1 feited. There is such a thing as catching too many fish, so that it becomes boresome. We have our annual feud on between the lads and the older men and as usual youth is setting a pace that is hard for us to equal. We’ve a pool on the biggest bass of the trip and so far no one has any thing to brag about, a 2>/a pounder being tops up to the time this was written. Part of our fun is exploring new fishing areas that will pro duce under given conditions. As is the case in most lakes, the lunkers head for deep water just as soon as the top waters start to warm up. It is these big babies we’re after now and we hope to report some success next time we write. It is somewhat painstak ing fishing, but is well worth the effort when you connect. So far, our experiences of previous years have netted us no large fish, but we still have hopes. Saw some four and five pounders caught with live bait after dark yester day. We know where they came from and we hope to lure them on artificials, none of us caring for live bait fishing. There are some wonderful trips to be made via boat and outboard from our camp. One, which we plan for this week, is to journey up the Saranac River to Middle Saranac Lake, called Round Pond by the natives. There are some wonderful pickerel weed beds in this lake which abound with pike and we expect to try our luck with them in the morning. Another, which we will take an other day, is down the river to the lock into Miller Pond where we’ll have a friendly visit with Ed Lamy, former Olympic speed skat ing champion, who now, in his latter years, tends the lock for the State. Each day, we take in another part of this wonderful lake, run ning over to Boot Bay, Loon Bay or Pope Bay for the Ashing, or perhaps running down the lake to Crescent Bay Camps and from there motoring into the town of Saranac Lake for mail and sup plies. Takes us about 35 minutes each way with the outboards to make this run and we always en joy it. One reason why this area al ways will be a beauty spot and will continue to produce Ane Ashing is the constant supervision given by the State gahie protectors. Not oqly do they check your licenses and catches, but they in spect your camps and woe betide those who do not take proper care of garbage and trash. You get just one warning and upon a second offense your’re through camping in that area. But these young men are just about as obliging as anyone could be. They”ll not only show you where to Ash if you are strange to the lake, but will take you there and make sure you get back safely. A bunch of Ane lads.

William Preston Lane, Jr., of Maryland was at Prince Georges County Club yesterday to present checks and prizes to win ners in The Star’s $15,000 Open golf tournament, but he also was there as an ordinary sports fan and golfer who wanted to see the stars in action. He did just that, and with a small party of friends joined the big galleries trooping over the course. Once away from the clubhouse, he took off his necktie and unbuttoned the collar of his shirt, bought soft drinks for his friends as they passed the con cession stands and otherwise did the same as all the other specta tors. The Governor diplomatically played no favorites among the contestants. He applauded Bob Hamilton’s birdie 2 on the 17th, also gave Sammy Snead a good hand for his birdies on the 15th and 16th. But he groaned sympa thetically when Skip Alexander flubbed his tee shot on the 15th and when Chick Harbert missed a birdie putt on the 17th. Trades Hats With Snead. Back on the 18th green to pre sent the checks and prizes, Gov. Lane gave the crowd a big laugh when he snatched off Snead’s fancy straw hat and traded it for his own conservative panama, re vealing two balding pates. The photographers took more pictures of that bit of humorous byplay than they did of almost anything else going on at the club. ‘Tf I could drive like Sammy Snead I wouldn’t have to be Governor,” he told spectators over the public address system. “But I noticed that some of the others— Skip Alexander and Chick Har bert—outdrove him occasionally, but I’m not selflsh; just give me a drive like Snead’s.” As for his own golf game, the Governor admitted to being some Marx-Hardesty Tilt To Break Flag Tie The first-half championship in Section 1 of the National City Junior League is being decided to day in the baseball game between Marx Jewelers and Hardesty’s Market at T^ft Field. Both have 6-1 records. Marx yesterday prepped for the tilt by defeating the Caps, champs of Section 2, 6-4, in an exhibition game at Taft. Johnny Hogan’s single in the seventh drove in two runs to break a 4-4 deadlock. In other holiday exhibitions, District Firemen and Quantico Marines split at Quaptico, the Ma rines taking the first, 8-4, and the Firemen the second, 4-2; Irish War Vets won at Poolesvillek 16-8, and Shamrock Trucking defeated Burtonsville, 13-12, for its seventh straight. Grays Increase Lead Washington Homestead Grays widened their lead in the Negro American Association yesterday by taking both ends of a double header ajgainst the Charlotte Blues at Griffith Stadium.

The most consistently good golf of the tournament earned Dick Metz $1,000 for his 276 total. Metz’s Anal round 68 enabled him to pick up seven shots on Harri son, who birdied two of the last three holes for 277 and. sixth money of $900. Col. Jimmy Wilson of Army Navy won The Star’s low amateur award, a silver serving set by add ing a final round 73 for 290. Ralph Bogart also finished in 73 for 292, while third amateur hon , ors went to Spencer Overton of Rolling Road. It required 3 under par to fin ish in the money, with a number of illustrious shotmakers, includ ing Lawson Little, Joe Kirkwood, jr.; Eric Monti and ChandlOt Harper, over the 285 figure.

He is a mem ber of Fountain' Head Club in Hagerstown aad has honorary memberships in a number of others. At one time his club handi cap was down to 7, but without much time for play in recent years his average has soared, he said. The last time he played was last November at Pinehurst, N.C., where he turned in a 53-49— W2 card, about which he did no bragging. Gov. Lane does have one claim to golfing fame, however, being a member of the Hole-in-One-Club. He shot his ace 10 years ago at Fountain Head, but still remem bers the details. It was on the 146-yard 16th and he used a No. 6 iron. Sixth Shot Troublesome. Like many another golfer, the Governor has tried various angles to improve his own game. He al ways has been a pretty long hit ter with the irons, he admitted, but for awhile could do nothing with the woods He thought he had an answer to that and had special woods of his own design built. The shafts were longer and the heads lighter, but with that outfit he was worse than ever, he admitted. Finally he went back to “store boughten” woods and is doing fair with them now, he said. The shot now giving him the most trouble is “that sixth stroke,” he claimed. “Ordinarily it's a short stroke, too, and I was hoping to see how these good golf ers took care of it. But after they’ve had three or four strokes on each hole they seem to be through. They don’t get up to six.” The Prince Georges course he thought was “very beautiful. I’d like a chance to play it,” he added. “Only it will have to be some time when there are not so many good golfers around. There's a differ ence between their game and mine.” Harbert's Points In Star Open May Net Cup Berth Appended is the revised stand ing of the Ryder Cup team .can didates, including points won in The Washington Star Open, in the center column.
