Thacker, in New Boat,
Scores at Solomons, Looks to Bush River By Malcolm Lamborne, Jr. Star Staff Correspondent SOLOMONS, Md., July 18.—Au brey Thacker, Washington boat racer when he's not selling real estate, has his new class D serv ice runabout, Jezebel VI, going great guns, as witness two firsts in yesterday’s windup of the Sol omons Island Yacht Club regatta. Thacker, with his brother Joe riding as mechanic, now is point ing for the Bush River (Md.) re gatta this coming week end. He hopes his performance here is the beginning—however belated—of a successful season. Jezebel VI, powered with a 175 horsepower Auburn engine, was purchased from a Gibson Island • Md.) boatman, and is racing her first season. Thacker, on the other hand, has been at the game for years. Powell Drives Best Rare. The day's best race was staged by Jerry Powell of Richmond and C. A. Widenhouse of Concord, N. C., in the 225-cubic-inch hydro plane class. Powell’s Skedaddle tied with Widenhouse s Lazy Days on total points, after each won a heat. But the Richmond driver took top prize by having the faster time for the two heats. Lazy Days, winner of the Vir ginia Gold Cup at Hampton on July 2, led the 4-boat field of 225s in the first heat. Powell made a strong bid for first, but on the last time around the 5-lap circuit he went well off the course for some reason and lost valua ble time. He had to settle for second. The next time out Wildenhouse hit the start right on the gun, with Powell several hundred feet astern. The Richmond driver, a former outboarders. pressed Wid enhouse hard, and on the turn for the final lap, Skedaddle went into the lead. Chief Scorer Eric Greenleaf of Washington figured that Powell had the better time by only three seconds for two heats. The bouncing E and F service runabouts put on two good races, too. as they banked around the turns, with spray flying. R. A. Dowdy's Peggy of Grandy, N. C., who hasn't lost a race in the longest time, scored in the Es and even led the faster Fs which were racing simultaneously. S. C. Hut son's Peggy I of Mathews, Va., won in the latter class. Other Winners Listed. Other winners were Henry Tie man's Here’s Me of Wyoming, Del., Pacific One-Designs; Pow ell's Skedoodle, 135s; Frankie Foulke's Sagana VIII. Essex, Md., E racing roundabuots, and Ed mund Thompson's T. M. Special, Edgemere, Md., B racing round abouts. For the first time in the nine years of the regatta, inboards raced in the creek here over about the same course as the out boards Saturday. Referee Bill Rogers decided it was too rough on the Patuxent and the drivers; agreed. A dozen sailboats raced outside, j Sylvia Jarboe's Sondra, St. Mi-; chaels, won the Lightning Class, j an5 R. C. Mueller’s Shalamar of St. Marys City won the Hampton! One-Designs and the free-for-all. i Gov. Preston Lane of Maryland, | who viewed the race from the State yacht Potomac, awarded the trophies.

July 18.—It's up to Ted Schroeder to give young Pancho Gonzales his come-up-| pance on the national tennis j scene. Gonzales yesterday captured his second straight national clay’ court title to go with the na-1 tional championship he won at Forest Hills last year in Schroe der s absence. Schroeder was not on hand for the week-long clay court meet at River Forest Tennis Club which ended with Gonzales' four-set victory over Frankie Parker, 6—1, 3_6, 8—6. 6—8. The feminine clay court cham pion also repeated as Magda Rurac of Los Angeles wilted down Beverly Baker of Santa Monica, Calif., 2—6. 9—7, 6—3. Miss Baker, 19, blew match point twice leading the second set, 7—6, and Mrs. RGrac, former Romanian champion, quickly turned the tide. In the oXdy doubles competition, top-seeded Vic Seixas of Phila delphia and Sam Match of Los Angeles won the men’s title, out lasting Gonzales and Hugh Stew art of Pasadena, Calif., 6—4, 1—6, 5—7, 8—6, 9—7, Gonzales today left for the Eastern grass court circuit before defending his national crown in September at Forest Hills. Schroeder, ranked No. 2 na tionally behind Gonzales and re cently crowned Wimbledon cham pion, has indicated he will be back doing business at Forest Hills this year. That should cause Gon zales some worry, since Schroeder here and there has beaten Pan cho five times in six meetings. Gonzales had his fireball serv ice working beautifully against the 32-year-old Parker, a five time winner of the tourney. But, as the 21-year-old Pancho ad mitted, Parker was a weary final ist, who had dropped eight pounds during the week. Gonzales whizzed 15 aces against Parker—not as many as the 25 he scored in last year's National against Jaroslav Drobny —but enough to put Frankie com pletely on the defensive. There were times when Pancho’s services, slammed with all the strength of his towering 183 pound physique, had Parker stab bing his racquet at the blurred ball in hopes of just stopping, much less returning it. Gonzales, turning in what he described as his best game ever on clay courts, scored 145 points to 130 by Parker in the one hour and 45-minute match. The all-Los Angeles finale went against Parker in the 40-minute third set after Frankie had perked with his 6-3 second set triumph. Gonzales broke a 6-all dead lock in the third set by copping a deuced 13th game and breaking Parker’s service for the set game. Parker, who first won the clay j court crown in 1933 and also won in 1939-41-46-47, failed to benefit by the 10-minute rest after the third set, while Gonzales came out ready for the kill. Solidarity's Goo-Goo Eye Won Him a Fortunate Lady Owner ly the Associated Press LOS ANGELES, July 18.— Two years ago Harry Curland, caterer at Hollywood Park and other California race tracks, ’ told his daughter, Mrs. Nat Goldstone, that if she saw a horse she liked he’d buy it for her. They went to the Louis B. Mayer thoroughbred auction ' and saw a horse she liked. He had a cute way of looking at her out of the comer of one eye, she said. His name was Solidarity. “Every time I nudge you, bid on him,” Curland told her. The price went up to $20,000. Curland nudged. Mrs. Gold-| stone bid. But when the ante went up to $20,500 Curland ; didn’t nudge. Mrs. Goldstone bid anyway, 1 and took Solidarity away for j $21,000 of Curland’s money. ■ The colt, which still looks at her out of the comer of his eye, has more than paid for himself. ' His latest escapade, a vic tory in the $100,000-guaran i teed Hollywood Gold Cup last Saturday, swelled his earnings to date to $288,735. Next Saturday Solidarity shoots at the $50,000-added w Sunset Handicap, getaway day fixture at Hollywood-Santa Anita. Chances are he’ll be the finger horse in that one. Other Gold Cuppers who will match strides in the mile and five-eighths Sunset ’Cap are Ace Admiral and Pretal, sec ond and third place horses be hind Solidarity; On Trust, Din ner Gong and Miss Grillo. The Irish thoroughbred, Esprit de France, was with drawn from the Gold Cup to compete in the Sunset. There will be other nominees for the race. The California-bred Solidar ity, now 4 years old, put the big-name horses to shame in the Gold Cup. A 12-to-l shot, the big bay colt, with Ralph Neves astride, tied the Santa Anita track record, set by the mighty Seabiscuit in the Santa Anita hundred grander ip 1940. Time for the mile and one quarter was two minutes, one and one-fifth seconds. The pace-setting Ace Ad miral of the Maine Chance Farm was a length and a quar ter back at the finish. Pretal, the Argentine horse, came in fast for a surprising third. Some 40,535 perspiring fans shuffled out $2,491,730 at the pari-mutuels during the after noon, $445,544 for the feature race.

Commie Press Howls As Netmen Seek Visas By th« Associated Pres* GSTAAD, Switzerland, July 18. —While the Communist Czecho slovakian press complained bitter ly, Jaroslav Drobny and Vladimir Cernik, former Czech Davis Cup stars, prepared today to apply for American visas. Drobny and Cernik, who refused an order to return home last week, said after the finals of the Swiss tennis championships yesterday that they hoped to compete in some tournaments in the United States late this summer if the visas were forthcoming. The pair met with mixed suc cess in the finals of the Swiss tourney. Drobny bowed to Earl Cochell of San Francisco, 3—6, 6—3, 2—6, 6—3, 7—5, in the singles final. He teamed with Cernik in the doubles final, beat ing the German team of Rolf Goepfert and Werner Beuthncr, 6—3, 6—0, 6—3. The bleatings of the Prague newspapers, which not long ago were lavish in their praise of Drobny for reaching the final of the Wimbledon championships, reached a crescendo. Cried “Rude Pravo,” the official organ of the Communists: “They always were two-faced traitors. They always played a double game. At home they pre tended loyalty to the state and to Minister of Information Vaclav Kopecky, whose sports department gave them everything they asked for • * * but their soul was on the other side. * * * Now they have unmasked themselves.

Tipton Bats in Two Runs on One Roller By th« Associated Press CHICAGO, July 18.—An oddity in baseball scoring was recorded here in the Chicago half of the seventh inning of the second game of a New York-White Sox doubleheader yesterday. The White Sox had the bases full with one out and Catcher Joe Tipton at bat. After he hit a line foul on Pitcher Fred Sanford’s first pitch, Frank Shea replaced Sanford. Tipton then hit a grounder to Phil Rizzuto at shortstop. Rizzuto fielded the ball, tossed to Snuffy Stirnweiss for a force play at second. Stirnweiss followed with a throw to first base in a futile attempt to double Tipton. While this was going on Luke Appling scored from third, and George Metkovich came home from second. Dick Kryhoski, the Yankee first baseman, threw to the plate but much too late to head off the charg ing Metkovich. The odd ma neuver also gave Tipton credit for two runs batted in on an infield roller. The Yanks won the first game, 2-1, while the White Sox won the second, 7-3.

Gardner ran up an early six hole lead on Harold Hair, who has been to the final at Washington at least six times, and finally won, 5 and 3, in the 36-hole final. Previously Gardner had played 36-hole finals in the Maryland and Middle Atlantic Amateur championships, which he lost to Ralph Bogart, and last Sunday played 36 in the Belle Haven In vitation, which he won with Col. Jimmie Wilson. In addition he spent a Sunday afternoon with Washington in the final of the Maryland State team champion ship. The ex-Iowa Amateur titlist shot a 68 in the morning round yester day to lead Hair by six holes. The latter won three of them back by the 31st hole but lost the next two and the match. Hair, who twice has won the Washington title lost to Gardner by the same score last year in the title round and was Claude Rip py’s victim in 1945 and ’47. William McFerren and R. H. O’Malley, a tough best-ball com bination, won Indian Spring’s two man team championship by de feating Alan Weisberg and Dick Schattman, 2 and 1, in the final.

Holdrege was the winner with rounds of 81 and 79, minus 15 handicap strokes each round, for 130. R. E. Reed was next with 83-83 minus a 17 handicap each round for 133. Kenwood's blind bogey winners were E. L. Koepelnich, 92-24—68, and S. S. Kennedy, 87-16—71. Frank Woolley played what he admitted was the best golf of his life in winning the Belle Haven Bowl over Eddie Edwards, 7 and 6, in the scheduled 36-hole final. Woolley, who now has two legs on the Alexandria club’s second most important trophy, bettered par by a stroke in the morning with a 69 to Edwards’ creditable 76 and led, 7 up. Edwards reduced the margin to four up on the third nine with subpar golf, but Woolley came back to birdie the 28th, 29th and 30th holes in succession and close the match out on the 30th green. Comdr.

Cramer, who banged out 2,705 hits during his major league career with Philadelphia, Boston, Washington and Detroit in the American League, is serving as a player and coach of the Inter national League’s league-leading Buffalo Bisons and doing a good job in both departments. The 42-year-old outfielder is serving principally in pinch-hit ting roles and has come through often in the clutch. He had his red letter day on July 4 when he belted a grand-slam pinch-hit homer. The old boy came through again yesterday delivering a pinch-hit single that scored P-ay Coleman from second base in the 13th inning with the run that gave the Bisons a 7-8 triumph over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Cramer has walloped 14 hits for the Bisons and driven home 14 runs. Saul Rogovin went all the way for Buffalo and gained his ninth victory. The triumph increased Buffa lo’s lead over the Montreal Royals and the Rochester Red Wings to six games.
