THE EVENING STAR Washington, D. C. TUESDAY, MAY 12, 1953 Tahitian King Likely Preakness Starter After Belmont Win By th* Associated Prtii NEW YORK. May 12.—Ben P. Whitaker’s Tahitian King prob ably earned a trip to Baltimore for the SIOO,OOO Preakness with a workmanlike victory in the Swift Stakes at Belmontj Park yesterday. But the Texas-owned son of Polynesian-Carolyn A. didn’t im press as the kind of horse that can be expected to beat Native Dancer or Dark Star, the Ken tucky Derby winner, at Pimlico, May 23, and he may be asked to take another test in the Withers Alile at Belmont Saturday. Running a steady race under Hedley Woodhouse, Tahitian King took charge in the stretch and won by a length and a half from Brookfield Farm’s fast-clos ing Isasmoothie. Jack Amiel’s Sun Warrior beat out Mrs. P. G. Spear’s Real Brother for third money. All of the first four horses are} eligible for the Preakness, along I with Howell Jackson's Cesar Did, who finished sixth, Maine Chance Farm's Smart Apple, eighth, E. P. Taylor's Navy Page-, 10th, and Greentree Stable’s Lotus Eater, a bad last. The odds-on favorite at 9 to 10, Tahitian King did everything expected of him but run a fast race. The time of 1:26 for the seven furlongs was the slowest in the Swift Stakes since Chest nut Oak won in 1929 in 1:27. No racing today at Pimlico gave John Schapiro and Joe Cas carella of Laurel a chance to in vite the sports writers out for a round of golf at Baltimore. A dinner will follow the golf, if that's the word for it. Montpelier Stable’s Pintor, a former stakes runner on the flat and a starter in last year’s Ken tucky Derby, made his debut over the hurdles yesterday at Belmont. Pintor was second to James McHugh’s River Jordan despite a game try. Mrs. C. Oliver Iselin’s colt Bradley, a son of Bimelech, should attract a lot of attention at Delaware Park even if he doesn’t win. He has no tail. The story is that Bradley became rambunctious one day last fall, reared, fell and rolled over, and lost his tail. He’s entered in the Kent and Leonard Richards for 3-year-olds. A1 Fahey of Delaware comes j up with the note that Robert ■ D. Austin’s Brook Prince is the i only nominee for the Richards whose sire won the event. Eight Thirty, Brook Prince’s pop, won the race in 1939. Two Foxcroft Events Won by Baby Seal By a Special Correspondent of The Star MIDDLEBURG, Va., May 12. —After missing top honors at the Loudoun Hunt Show Satur- 1 day, the Shawnee Farm's Baby Seal came back here yesterday to take the junior and senior championships of the annual Poxcroft Horse Show.

Baby Seal was handled in the juior di-1 vision by Miss Penny Jennings. | In the open classes during the! afternoon session the horse was | ridden by Mrs. A. B. Lee. For the undergraduates here, the so-called officers’ jumping j test over a modified Olympic [ course is one of the major j events. It is judged 50 per cent, on performance and 50 per centj on horsemanship. The winner! this year was a school-owned horse, Pat, handled by Miss Kathleen McKinney, who is the daughter of the steeplechase i trainer, Rigon McKinney. Secretary of the Treasury George Humphrey w j as one of the judges. After putting in a full day among young horsemen, 1 whose emotions are partisan to' say the least, he probably felt like he had been in a Democratic caucus. J. B.

McLendon Contends Baseball Never Lifted Curbs on Broadcasts Gordon McLendon, the radio network executive from Texas who has been staging a running feud with organized baseball for several years, claims baseball still is restricting radio broadcasts al though a rule permitting such re strictions has been repealed. “The rule never has gone out,” McLendon told a Senate Inter state Commerce subcommittee yesterday. “Its repeal was a sham.” He said the Detroit Ti gers and Chicago White Sox had worked out territorial agree ments about radio and television, and saw to it they didn’t conflict. Senator Johnson, Democrat, of Colorado, the subcommittee chairman, replied that McLen don’s charge was “news to me.” He has introduced a bill to make such baseball radio and tele i vision restrictions legal, and yes terday’s session was ahother of a series of hearings on the Johnson bill. Pending Suit Delayed. McLendon and his attorney testified for three hours yester day, and the session was marked by charges and countercharges. The Texas broadcaster has a sl2 million suit pending against 13 major league clubs, charging monopolistic practices forced his Liberty Network out of business. That suit, filed in Chicago in February last year, yesterday was set back for trial until next January. Attorneys told the Chicago court that neither side had completed gathering its ma terial. Yesterday, McLendon told the subcommittee that the charge made by baseball for his “game of the day” broadcasts rose from SI,OOO in 1948 to $225,000 in 1951, and that in 1952 the majors wouldn’t sell at any price. Broadcasts Lifted. McLendon revealed that now the Knickerbocker Network in Texas, of which he is an Execu tive, has an agent in New York who tunes in baseball broadcasts and then relays the information to Texas. There the game is recreated and broadcast. He said a Texas court ruled 'such a practice was legal, but Sen ator Johnson called it a “fraud on the public.” A. B. (Happy) Chandler, for mer Senator from Kentucky who w r as baseball commissioner for six years, backed the Johnson bill and questioned McLendon’s right to get the information with which he recreated games Chandler said that he always had thought the baseball rule re stricting broadcasts was legal, but that baseball modified the rule in the face of Justice De partment threats to file anti trust charges.

May 12. —Jersey l Joe Walcott scoffs at the theory : that his old legs gave out on him in the 13th round against Rocky Marciano last' September.l “It wasn’t the legs,” he said yesterday. “I felt as good in the 13th as I did in tlje first. It was the blood running down into my eye. I never saw the punch that knocked me out." Walcott could have seen the punch for free yesterday at a private showing of the uncut fight films for newsmen. He pre ferred not to mix business with rest on his day off. Felix Bocchicchio, Walcott’s manager, also missed the knock out punch in the movies. After i viewing six rounds, Felix left the projection room, claiming Mar ciano could be accused Os hutt ing in every one of the six rounds. Joe’s Endurance Big Factor. Much of the pre-fight talk about Friday’s title rematch at Chicago Stadium hinges on Wal cott’s ability to go 15 rounds at top speed. Everybody, Marciano excepted, admits that 39-year old Jersey Joe can box rings around short-armed Rocky. But) they aren’t sure he can keep moving under the constant pres sure of the champ’s body punches. The 11-year spread between Marciano, 28, and the old guy from Camden, N. J., is a major factor in the 3-to-l odds fa voring Rocky. “How would you like to be 28 again?” somebody asked Wal cott. “I feel like I’m 28 right now,” he answered with a grin. “A man is as old as he feels. You fel lows could save a lot of news paper space if you’d cut out that ‘old’ in old Jersey Joe.” Walcott a Pro Since 1930. The ex champion truly is a re markable physical specimen. He has been boxing as a pro since 1930. When he had his first fight. Max Schmeling had just won on a foul from Jack Sharkey to take the crown vacated by Gene Tunney..

Now he’s bidding to become the first ex-champ ever to win back the title. Jersey Joe is reluctant to grade fighters or compare them with others.
