Fun-Filled Coaching Era Ends As Doc Carlson Retires at Pitt By the Associated Press PITTSBURGH, April 22. Pitt’s physician-basketball coach, who fed players oxygen between periods and ice cream after games, has prescribed self-re tirement. The prescription will end the 31-year coaching career of Dr. Henry C. Carlson known as Doc Carlson to thousands of fans. The silver-haired, 58-year old coach will devote his entire i time to being director of men’s student health at the University of Pittsburgh. During his 31 years as Panther coach, Carlson’s team won 36$ and lost 247 games. In 1928 and 1930 they won the national title. Carlson-led quintets didn’t fare so well in recent years. His best record after World War II was last season’s mediocre 12- 11 mark. Undaunted, Doc began each campaign with a tongue in-cheek prediction: “We’ll win ’em all.” Mixed Philosophy and Fun. Carlson mixed philosophy with j fun to give fans a brand of basketball which was always un usual if not victorious. His last innovation was the use of oxygen to refresh players. Fans were startled last year to see Doc’s charges bury their faces in inhalators between periods. Carlson dropped the experiment after a few games. On one occasion, the unpre dictable coach made some sort of history by extracting blood from players during halftime Intermission. Although Pitt lost, Carlson was satisfied. After mak ing tests of the blood, he pro claimed: “Basketball is not detrimental to health.” Doc's experiments weren’t all medical. In 1950 he had fans booing his so-called deep freeze against Penn State yrhich re sulted in a half-time score of 5-0 in favor of Penn State. Carlson commented: i Favorites Have Day At Jamaica, Win In Seven of Eight Special Dispatch to The Star NEW YORK, April 22.—Favor ites really had their day at Ja maica yesterday. They won in seven of eight races and placed second in the other. Ravioli, at $3.30, in the first; Great Habit, at $5.00, in the sec ond: Bay Hash, at $7.00. in the fourth: Full Flight, at $3.90, in the fifth; One Count, at $6.30, in the sixth; Indian Land, at $5,60, in the seventh and Once In Love, at $5.80, in the eighth were the favorites who won. Flying Tuck, paying $3.80, was second In the third race. One Count outran such opposi tion as Master Fiddle and Bryan G. to win his race, the SIO,OOO Naturalist Handicap, ahead of Assignment and Flaunt. The third-rated Bryan G. ran last in the 11-horse field. Atalanta, a 5-year-old Count Fleet mare owned by the Darby Dan Farm, was the overnight favorite for the 6 - furlong $25.000-added Correction Handi cap for fillies and mares at Ja maica today. Today a year ago—South paw Bobby Cain of the St. Louis Browns and Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians both pitched a one-hit game as the Browns defeated the Indians, 1-0, in the first double one hitter since 1906. End of Florida Racing Means Respite for Traveling Trainer By Lewis F. Atchison The close of Florida’s four | month racing season yesterday is bringing a welcome respite from “commuting” for Trainer Lucien Laurin. The Canadian-born con ditioner has been going back and forth a bit too much, it seems. Laurin has 29 horses in train ing, a big enough task in itself. But having two in Florida, in cluding Crystal Boot, 11 at Bowie and 16 at Jamaica kept him constantly on the go. He has 64,000 miles on an automo bile not yet two years old, plus uncounted mileage in air travel. “The pressure has eased up some,” the 41-year-old Laurin said. “I started with 34 horses— I’ve never had fewer than 35 before—and although it’s hard i to get good men, I’ve got two helping me run things.” Does well With Blondette. One of the men is Laurin’s' 17-year-old son, Roger, a Junior in St. Patrick’s High School at Miami, who supervises the care of the two horses in Florida. The other assistant is Andy Gau thier, a brother-in-law, currently in charge of the string at Ja maica. Laurin shuttles back and forth between the three points, looking after his own interests at Bowie on stop-overs. He’s pretty good at picking spots for his horses, too. Open- I ing day at Bowie he saddled W. E. Schlusemeyer’s Blondette, starter, for a victory 1 in a $2,500 claiming race. The chestnut filly paid a $lO mutuel to complete a $573.40 daily dou ble—one of the juiciest of the meeting. Last Thursday Laurin ran Blondette at Jamaica with a claiming tag of SB,OOO and won again. All of the horses in Laurin’s care are owned by either Schluse meyer, who lives in Warrenton, Va., or Reginald N. Webster of Lynncroft, N. J. Started Out as Rider. Now in his 12th year of train ing, after outgrowing his earlier profession of riding, Laurin is : partial to the Bowie track. His fondness for the place dates back to 1946 when he ran four horses and had three winners. The fourth "got beat by a nose 99- to-1 shot,” as he recalls it. The dark-haired, friendly Lau rin started riding in 1929 in “The score was supposed to be nothing-nothing. But Penn State wouldn’t co-operate. We did our part. We got the zero.” The final score was 34-21, with the Nittany Lions on top. Doc explained the last-half scoring j spurt this way: “We didn’t give the fans any thing the first half. So we played the second half. Even though we might have- to lose, we’re willing to give them half a game.” Poked Fun at Officials. When officiating didn’t come up to par in his opinion, Doc never hesitated to show his dis pleasure. Near the end of a West Virginia game several years ago he scooped up all handy sweat shirts, gear and the water bucket and staggered out to the court. Doc dumped the stuff at the feet of a surprised referee and boomed: “Here. You’ve taken every thing else from us tonight. You might as well have these, too.” The official promptly banished Carlson from the floor. Stimu lated, Doc climbed into the stu dent cheering section, tied a bor rowed babushka ’kerchief around his head and spent the rest of the game yoo-hooing and stick ing his tongue out at officials. Carlson endeared himself to Penn State rooters once by toss ing peanuts and candy to spec tators sitting • behind the Pitt bench. He tossed it off with: “We won’t give you much of a game tonight, but here’s some thing for your trouble in coming to see the game.” But Carlson’s career had Its serious side, too. He was named to Helms’ basketball hall of fame In 1949. The previous year he was awarded a cup for making the most contributions to basket ball. and in 1950 he coached the East team in the East-West All- Star game at Madison Square Garden. Zuluefa and Brown Fight on TV Tonight By the Associated Prost BALTIMORE, April 22.—Two lightweight journeymen, Joey Brown of New Orleans and Orlando Zulueta of Havana, dis play their boxing wares to the country tonight. The scheduled 10-rounder in the Coliseum will be telecast on the CBS network. It will be Brown’s first such photogenic opportunity. (The showing in Washington will be on WTOP TV at 10 p.m.) Brown and Zulueta have been bouncing around in the 135- pound ranks for seven years without meeting before. Off their records, they appear about even, although Zulueta was listed as a 6-to-5 favorite. Zulueta has fought 68 times, winning 43. Brown has had five fewer matches and won 44. Zulueta has never been knocked out and has been floored only once. Brown has been counted 1 out three times. ; In one of tonight's prelimi ! naries Eldridge Thompson of j Quantico, Va., former National AAU light-heavyweight cham pion, seeks his ninth straight pro victory in a four-rounder against Chuck Taylor of Baltimore. Eddie Gilchrist of Washington and Kid Saucer of Washington appear in other prelims. ■Hlf « LUCIEN LAURIN. Canada. He was 17 then and weighed only 98 pounds. It’s 150 now, he tells you, ruefully. He won three or four races his first year at Blue bonnet, near Mon treal. He rode Eddie Bowie’s Sir Michael to victory in the 1935 King’s Plate for three-year-olds and over foaled in Canada. This race, run at Blue Bonnet and worth $3,500 and 50 guineas, is not to be confused with the King’s Plate for three-year olds, Canada’s Kentucky Derby, run at Woodbine Park near To ronto, and worth $15,000 and 50 guineas. Laurin received much of his riding education at old Pascoag Park in Rhode Island,' since abandoned. There a kid had “to be game or broke” to take a mount. Laurin says he quali fied on both counts. “You skidded around the first turn there,” he recalls. “I re member seeing a horse fall at that turn, slide across the track and under the outside rail. But Laurin did all right at Pascoag, riding 33 winners in 30 days. There were days when he had no mounts, so he thinks he averaged two a day. Two Stakes Winners. Laurin, thus far, hasn’t had a truly “big” horse to train, a real Dei by hope that every trainer keeps looking for. The best have been Crystal Boot, who won the Ponce de Leon and Christmas Day Handicap in Florida and since has gone bad, and Gabe Paul a stakes winner named for the Cincinnati baseball executive. But Laurin isn’t complaining. He thinks he’s pretty lucky— lucky that he’s still around and able to train horses. It seems that two years ago he was in a head on automobile crash, and when he recovered consciousness, the left front wheel of one of the cars was resting on his neck. "I got a fractured vertebrae and my neck was in a cast 5% months," Lucien said. “But I got well enough to do everything but gallop horses. I was thrown into some soft mud or clay in the accident, and the doctors said that saved me from being killed. You know, I’ve never really minded a muddy track since.” Oil Field'Rust' Bothers Savitt, Rallying to Gain in River Oaks By tho Associated Press HOUSTON, April 22.—Dick Savitt is convinced tournament tennis and a job as an oil field handyman are not good mixers. The Nation’s No. 4-ranked amateur thinks some pretty “rusty” tennis sent him into to day’s fourth round of the 19th annual River Oaks invitation tournament. It is his first return to com petitive tennis since he came here last winter from Orange, N. J., to learn the oil business. His last tournament was in Oc tober. The 1951 Wimbledon and Aus tralian champion pulled three double faults in losing the first game of a vital third set yester day to a Southern Methodist University sophomore, Bobby Wertheimer. The 18-year-old Wertheimer probably made his .biggest mis take of the match as he began serving the next game. He served underhanded. “I’m not that bad,” Savitt shouted. Comes Back to Win. The oil field trainee then began his best tennis of the day. He faltered badly only once again before wrapping up the 6—l, I—6, 6—2 match. His errors lost the sixth game after he had gained a 40-love lead against Wertheimer’s service. "I was pretty bad,” Savitt said. “You can’t play good tennis without practicing. I’ve been studying oil, not tennis.” Savitt has been dividing his BEN HUNDLEY On* of tho World’o Largest Tiro Doaloro for Ovor 30 Yoaro 3446 14th St. N.W.

Ne COD’S _ __________ ’ Plenty of Free Parking w MOUTHS* Richest Race Season Ended for Florida As Gulfstream Closes •y tha Associated Press MIAMI, Fla., April 22.—They swept up discarded tote tickets, cleaned the stables and locked the gates at Gulfstream Park today to wind up the longest and most prosperous horse racing season Florida ever had. Starting Thanksgiving Day at Tropical Park, the season ran for 174 days at Tropical, Hialeah, Sunshine and Gulfstream. To tal attendance was 1,949,543 and pari-mutuel wagering hit $152,- 194,756. This far exceeded the $141,- 513,832 bet durlnL 1 7 l days of the 1951-2 season and made the $108,173,554 bet in the free spending postwar days of 1946- 47 look puny. Gulfstream Has Biggest Gain. Gulfstream Park, operating the last 42 days of the season, showed the biggest gain—6 per cent in attendance and 8 per cent in betting over 41 days last year. . Total attendance at Gulf stream was 601,682 and betting reached $47,906,175 compared with 564,732 attendance and $43,292,351 for the 1951-2 run. Tropical Park started the sea son earlier than usual and ran 42 days compared with 41 last year. Betting showed a gain of $4 million to $33,765,183 and at tendance was up from 397,889 to 431,952. Hialeah, operating 40 days as usual in the height of the tour ist season, played to 785,082 who wagered $62,084,596, a gain of 1.9 per cent in attendance and 2.4 per cent in pari-mutuel play. Sunshine Park at Tampa, stretching its season from 49 to 50 days, had 44,000 less attend ance, but betting showed a gain of $609,000 to $8,428,802. Purses Set New High. Gulfstream Park purses set a new high for the track. Under an agreement with horsemen whereby 3 per cent of the wager ing goes into purse money, sl,- 419,600 was distributed, com pared with $1,048,300 at the 1952 meeting. For the first time Florida staged three races carrying SIOO,- 000 purses. These were the Widener and Flamingo at Hia leah and the Florida Derby at Gulfstream. The Flamingo and Florida Derby were televised na tionally and the Derby went out over a Nationwide radio hookup. Racing authorities believe the tremendous growth of South Florida in recent years, coupled with improved accommodations for patrons and better horses, accounted for the increase in at tendance and betting. The State collects 8 per cent, plus breakage (odd cents) of each dollar wagered and will reap more than sl2 million from its horse track operations alone, not counting dog racing and jai alai. Part of this money goes into the old age pension fund and the remainder is di vided equally among the 67 counties. time between law books and such oil field work as moving drill pipe.

W •r-'zz. \ Explosive Ray Watson Is Like Time Bomb in Duckpin Battle By Rod Thomas ( Ray Watson is like a time bomb planted among the top bowlers of the District Major League. If the Little Tavern team’s stick of duckpin dynamite explodes during the next three weeks he may blow up the hopes of half a dozen or more rivals for; the most coveted individual bowling title in the District area. Today Watson, a Bureau of Standards employe is second to Frank (Bub) Guethler of the Glebe Radios, who has held a precarious lead for weeks in one of the stillest races in the long history of the all-star league. Before last night’s bowling Watson was fifth one of six bowlers with averages of 126- plus. After he rolled a 440 set his average was 127-45. In a strong defense of his lead Gueth ler chalked up 408, leaving him with an average of 127-92. Guethler has rolled 96 games, Watson 87. What worries Watson’s rivals is his propensity for shooting sensational sets. The 440 last night was typical. A consistently formidable performer, when Watson rises above normal, he soars. Seven times this season the Bohemian veteran has topped 400 and only on one of these occasions has he rolled less than 421. In the order registered, the big sets have been 404, 450, 421, 434, 433, 437 and 440. Not only the size, but the spacing of these whoppers is of concern to Watson’s rivals. Only two came within a short period. If his season’s pattern is main tained, he is a good bet to turn in one more smashing per formance. "Having that fellow around in a situation like this,” says Gueth ler, “is like having a gun at your back wondering if the trigger will be pulled.” Four Maryland Teams Considered for League By the Associated Priu SALISBURY, Md.. April 22. Representatives of baseball in terests in Maryland, Pennsylva nia and Delaware will meet here April 30 to plan the organization of a Class D league for operation next year. Sponsors of the meet ings said delegates are expected from Salisburg, Cambridge, Fred erick and Easton, Md.; Milford, Del., and Sunbury, Lancaster, Chambersburg and Mahanoy City. Pa. Salisbury, Sunbury and Lan caster were members of the In terstate League, which folded last winter. Salisbury also was a member of the old Eastern Shore League, along with Cam bridge, Easton and Milford, be fore that loop was disbanded three years ago. Cf. But Guethler isn’t easily upset. He’s recognized widely as the top southpaw duckpinner in the land. Tom Mock of Glebe, who didn’t bowl last night, is third in the standings with 126-69. Following are last night’s scores and cur rent averages of the other leaders: Bill Mischou, Arcade Pontiac, 362—126-68; Rocco Nocero, Glebe. 357-126-51; Pat Cres cenzl, Glebe, 330—126-49; Bob Miciotto, National Bohemian. 345 -126-34; Bill Stalcup, Glebe, 406-126-32. In the team competition, Little Tavern whitewashed Arcade Pontiac and National Bohemian downed Bethesda, Glebe topped Winchester Packard and Queen Pin defeated Hare Brothers, all by 2-1, leaving the standings: Glebe, 68-28; Little Tavern, 61-35; National Bohemian, 51-45; Arcade Pontiac, 50-46; Winches ter Packard, 46-50; Queen Pin, 42-54; Bethesda, 38-58; Hare Brothers, 29-67. Moving into tonight’s compe tition, Frances Wilson of the Sunbeams appears safely settled in first place in the Capital Women’s Major League with an average of 118-73, almost a full point ahead of her nearest rival, Marion Hamilton of Chevy Chase, whose figure is 117-60. Only one change in the upper standings of the National duck pin championships at Colonial Village resulted from last night’s rolling. The International Mone tary Fund A’s team took over third place in the mixed division with a score of 1,663. Pete O’Neill’s 359 was high. Another slim program is slated tonight, starting at 7 o’clock. Featured are several sets of men’s doubles and a group of singles made up of Brockton, Mass., bowlers, shooting at 9:30 o’clock. U. S. Interests Reported Buying Ottawa Track By the Associated Prm MONTREAL, April 22.—The Gazette says today controlling interest in Connaught Park race track in Ottawa may be sold to United States interests within the next week for an estimated $500,000.

He refused to reveal the identity of the “New York in terests.” The stofy says that under new management the track would probably be used exclusively for harness racing. Wafson Scores Upset Over Danny Nardico In Milwaukee Bout By the Associated Preas MILWAUKEE, April 22.—Larry Watson outpunched and out mauled a slowed-down Danny Nardico for most of their 10- round bout last night to win a unanimous decision and his third upset victory in a row. Nardico, fifth ranked light heavyweight from Tampa, Fla., appeared slow against the hard punching Omaha Negro before 4,733 fans in the Milwaukee Arena. Nardico weighed 178 and Watson 167%. Nardico, his nose bleeding from! the fifth round on, was off bal ance most of the time and hung on repeatedly in an attempt to keep away from Watson’s hard right. Watson pounded relentlessly with both hands. He previously had upset Wes Bascom and Billy Noble. Nardico opened a cut over Watson’s left eye in the seventh round, but it apparently failed to bother him. Nardipo, who went into the fight a favorite because of his ruggedness and non-stop attack, was rocked against the ropes in the eighth. Watson had landed two hard straight rights to his head and a pair of left and right combinations to the head. In the 10th round, Watson staggered Nardico with a right to the head. The three judges did not dis close their scores, but the Asso ciated Press score showed five rounds for Watson, two for Nar dico and three even. Nardico blamed lack of suf ficient training for his defeat and asked for a rematch. Watson said he would welcome an en core. The gross gate was $11,563, with a net of $9,636.
