THE EVENING STAR Washington, D. C. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1083 Miss Traffic Arrives For Gallorette Stakes Tomorrow at Pimlico Special Dispatch to Th* Star BALTIMORE, Oct. 20.—Clif ford Mooers’ Miss Traffic, an en try in tomorrow’s Gallorette Stakes, checked in at Pimlico yesterday, ready for the second running of the mile-and-one lixteenth test. A 5-year-old daughter of Box thorn and Traffic Court, Miss Traffic was runner-up to Ata lanta in the Beldame Handicap at Aqueduct. Last season she was second in the Hollywood Oaks. Meanwhile, track officials re port attendance and wagering figures up as the 12-day meeting entered its second and final week. Daily attendance has av eraged almost 13,000, against a little more than 11,000 a year ago, while the daily mutual play has been approximately $72,000 above last year. Today’s card was not a dis tinguished one, but the co featured sixth and seventh races promised to produce a lot of action. In the sixth, a %-mile dash, Is Proud, Wabash Moon and Slippy figured to cut a share of the pie, with Copper Kettle rated a possible surprise. The seventh, a 11-16-mile event, had Dinewisely, River Jordan and the Emerald Hill Stable pair of Blue Volt and Blue Square rated near the top. Nick Shuk leading rider at Atlantic City, was scheduled to ride Is Proud and Dinewisely. Directors of the Maryland Horse Breeders’ Association will hold a business meeting in the clubhouse today, following the last race. The association, which is backing Pimlico’s efforts to expand and improve the plant, expressed its appreciation of Pimlico's action in splitting last Saturday’s Maryland Breeders Stakes into two divisions, each worth $7,500.

The midget performers, both newcomers to Washington fans, are Mighty Shultz and Tiger Jackson, who will square off in a semifinal. Porterhouse, Hurt In Futurity, Out For Rest of Season t By th* Ajtociated Prtli NEW YORK, Oct. 20.—Porter house, winner of the Belmont Futurity and five of his starts this year, is through racing for the season, Trainer Charley Whittingham says. Whittingham said the star 2- year-old from Llangollen Farm in Virginia suffered a back in jury in the Pimlico Futurity last Saturday when he finished 23 lengths back of the winner, Er rard King. The trainer said the colt, the favorite in the race, lunged at the start and went into the air, apparently wrenching his back. This means Porterhouse will not be able to run in the rich Garden State Stakes at Garden State October 31. Not originally eligible, the colt’s owners planned to pay a $7,500 supple mental entry fee. The son of Endeavor 11-Red Stamp will be taken to Cali fornia for the winter and prob ably will be nominated for the Santa Anita Derby and one or two other races on the coast next year. Porterhouse, beaten in his de but at Belmont, went on to win five races, including the Bel mont Futurity. National Stal lion.

Oct. 20.—Sleepy I lowa State College students, re buffed in their second demand for a holiday to celebrate a homecoming football victory, re turned to classes again today. For the second straight night approximately 3,000 impatient students poured out over the sprawling campus, marched to the president’s house, then blocked the transcontinental Lincoln highway The student exuberance was touched off Sunday night after lowa State’s 13-6 grid triumph over Missouri last Saturday.

Soph With ‘Little Bit of Giel' Unveiled as Wisconsin Sleeper By the Associated Press MADISON, Wis., Oct. 20. Ivy Williamson appears to have come up with another sleeper. On the basis of one football game, it seems possible the wily Wisconsin coach has produced a capable sophomore quarter back for the second year run ning, this one a 169-pound youngster named Jim Miller. Young Miller, making his first collegiate start, had a field day Saturday as Wisconsin opened defense of its Big Ten co-championship with a 28-19 victory over Purdue, with whom it shared the title a year ago. The kid from Eau Claire. Wis., scored two touchdowns, ran for 88 yards on five stabs and completed two of six passes for 32 yards. Even Williamson, who is not given to lavish praise, admits he may have something in Mil ler. “He’s quick.” the Badger coach says, “he can be off in a flash. His greatest opportuni ties develop when he drops back to pass and the defense begins to scatter.” Runs With Instinct. “You know, there’s a little bit of Giel in that boy.” Giel, the Minnesota All-Amer ica, was the one who almost alone pulled his team to a 21-21 tie with Wisconsin last fall and kept the Badgers from an un disputed Big Ten championship. “Miller isn’t fast,” Williamson went on, “but he runs with an instinct, an instinct like Giel’s. He knows without thinking what direction to take or when to change it. He just senses where to go.” The Miller story may turn out to be a sequel to the one Wil liamson wrote last fall with Jim Haluska in the starring role. This year’s chapter was staged a little fancier, though, with Mil ler offstage until the conference portion of the schedule began. In the summer of 1952, with Johnny Coatta graduated. Wil liamson said the quarterback sit- him on the lawn, Dr. Hilton said it might be possible to dismiss classes for the Parents Day foot ball game with Nebraska Novem ber 7. He urged the students to go through proper administra tive channels to get their re quested holiday. He also indicated it might be possible to secure a “skip day” after a homecoming victory next year. When somebody shouted, “DO we get Sunday off, too?” the crowd marched off to the Lincoln highway, stoked up a bonfire as on Sunday and piled lengths of steel water main across the road. A few students sat astride the pipes while two boys and two girls sat in the middle of the highway playing bridge by the light of a street lamp. Highway Closed Twice. The highway was opened and . closed twice during the night as j the students moved off in search I of other adventure and then re - Iturned. No injuries were reported dur ing the two nights of demonstrat ing. However, some property damage in the form of broken i windows and uplifted street signs was seen. Peace returned early today only after several hundred students plodded the 114 miles to town, appearing at the police station and shouting, “We want tear gas.” hey were Ignored. uation looked pretty bad. The spot was up for grabs, he de clared. But when the Badgers opened there was sophomore Haluska, who’s never played in a college game before, at the throttle. He stayed there, too, and the Badgers went to the Rose Bowl. Haluska Injured. But last summer Haluska broke his leg playing baseball. The same situation' developed— who’ll be the quarterback? Senior Gust Vergetis started in the three non-conference games and Wisconsin beat Penn State, edged Marquette and lost to UCLA. Glen Wilson relieved Vergetis oc casionally and Miller got in for a few minutes, chiefly on defense. As late as last Saturday morn ing, Williamson contended he didn’t know who would start at quarter against Purdue when the Big Ten chips were down. But Miller did and it’s a dead cinch he’ll do the same this Saturday against Ohio State at Madison. Poor Crowds Cause Las Vegas Closing By tht Associated Press LAS VEGAS, Nev. Oct. 20. Besieged by trouble from opening day, the desert race track of the Las Vegas Jockey Club has sus pended operations after racing only 11 of its scheduled 67 days. The suspension, General Man ager A1 Luke said, is “for the balance of the year at least.” Luke said the action was taken reluctantly and that the reason was “obvious and comes from a lack of support from fans in Las Vegas.” The last racing day was Sun day, when the attendance was 3,927 and only $122,312 was wagered through the parimutuel machines. The $4-million estab lishment opened September 4 with lots of fanfare and high hopes. But an Australian tote board went haywire and bettors couldn’t determine what they were going to get for their money. Shoemaker Rides Two Straight Days Without a Winner By th* Associated Pross ALBANY, Calif., Oct. 20. For the first time in many months, Willie Shoemaker, world jockey champion, has gone two straight days without a winner. Shoes was blanked on six mounts yesterday and eight Saturday. That’s 14 straight. Early last week, he went 12 races between visits to the win ner’s circle. Shoes, who rode two winners Friday to run his year’s vic tories to 392 and break Tony DeSpirito’s 390 record set last year, doesn’t know what his longest losing streak was. His valet. Dunice Dußois, says about 22, at Santa Anita last winter. v Shoemaker had two seconds and three thirds yesterday. He has six more mounts today. \i BETHESDA t | SPORTS MART ♦ ♦ GUNS AND AMMUNITION ♦ X HUNTING CLOTHES X ♦ Md. Hunting Licenses ♦ J 7012 WISCONSIN AVE.

The case, argued in Federal Court in Philadelphia, has been taken under advisement and a ruling is not expected before the end of the pro season. The short, chunky Bell told the writers the NFL offers its games on 150 outlets during a 24-hour period, starting Satur day night. Plenty of Outlets, He Says. “No other program has as many outlets,” he added, “unless it’s the President of the United States. We give the people plenty of television, but we’re going to protect our home gate. We’re not going to permit tele vision of home games and we’re going to win the suit.” Bell said attendance for the first 24 games was 72,000 above 1952, an average of 3,000 a game, and that the league ap pears to be headed for an all time record in this department. He credited the tight title race for the upswing in attend ance. “I don’t think any club can escape losing three games,” he added. “And I don’t mean to throw any reflection on Cleve land, which is unbeaten. The Browns have a great ball club and Otto Graham (Cleveland quarterback) is having his great est year. Well-Balanced League. “But this is a well-balanced league. A team can run up a 21-point lead and still be in danger Os losing. No team can stay up for 12 consecutive Sun days.” Bell said four teams are op erating in the black but refused to name them. He said: “You can guess which ones they are.” A guess would be the Detroit Lions, New York Giants, Wash ington Redskins and Los An geles Rams. Bell noted that players’ sal aries are 400 per cent above what they were 10 years ago and can be paid only because of added TV receipts. -BRAKES RELINED WHILE YOU WAIT With the ft’etc Hi relies* “SAFTIBOND” The Wwtrr'i newest and finest brake lining segments pressure bended, giving mere friction. lenger wear.

Episcopal's Contest With GW High Tops Week-End Schedule Western High, with one of the four unbeaten and untied teams in the area, and Fairfax are the only absentees from the 26-game scholastic football schedule com ing up this week end. Coach Fred Mulvey of Western admits that the open date was arranged intentionally. “With games coming up with Wilson, Coolidge and Eastern I figured at the time that if we had any injuries it would be a welcome rest,” Mulvey said.

Another of the undefeated teams will be involved in prob ably the top attraction of the week end when Episcopal, rated first in the' area last week, takes on once-beaten and once-tied George Washington Saturday afternoon.

Schools}, By Bill Fuchs There are some things about football not even a coach can ex plain easily. For example, where does Western get off dealing contender boys catch B,n *■««»>«• fire. You find mediocre ball players playing over their heads. That’s what happened last year. We had Jim Bakhtiar and we were winning games we would have lost without him.” Bakhtiar, probably the best all-around high school player in the area last season, now is at Bullis. He led the Raiders to a' division title last year. They lost the championshisp playoff j to Wilson. They didn’t figure on ' paper to be anything but spec tators in that playoff. ** * * Western figures even less this year. The entire first team of 1952 was graduated. Yet the Raiders are unbeaten after four games and are undisputed lead ers of their division. Wilson, Coolidge and Eastern remain on the schedule. And this year Mulvey has no Bakhtiar. The closest resemb lance to the Iranian-born star is Roger Haney, a senior who waited until this season to try out for the team. Like Bakhtair, Haney, a 17- year-old standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 175, plays fullback, scores touchdowns and kicks extra points. He made %11 the team’s points in the 14-0 victory over Chamberlain. But Haney isn’t the real differ ence. Mulvey, a soft-spoken former end at George Washing ton University, believes his team is winning on nothing more than will-power. “Last year helped,” Mulvey says. “We .got 62 boys out for practice, more than we’ve had in years. And these boys go out to win. Somebody’s just going to have to show them they can be beaten—that’s how they feel about it.” There has been a marked de crease in enrollment at Western, one of the District’s oldest schools and located in the city’s oldest section, Georgetown. There are about 550 students there now. ** * * Western is idle this week and plays Wilson next week. By that time, Mulvey hopes to have Sal Lombardi ready again. Lom bardi, a 5-foot-9, 145-pound halfback, broke a collar bone against Chamberlain. Filling in for him haVe been two players. One, Tom Norcio, stands 5-foot -7 and weighs 135. At that he’s bigger than the other substi tute, Mike King, a 125-pounder who runs and passes and acts as though size isn’t important in football. Mulvey has two quarterbacks in Bob Sargent and Dick Sundt, both of whom are well-qualified to operate the T, run with ball and pass. The size of the line isn’t too impressive. The ends—Warren Jenkins, Jim Richards and A1 Eichner are under 175.

'** * * Mulvey, who has been coach- j ing at Western since 1941, would very much like to win the Wil son game, but around his house, he won’t be saying much about it. He has three daughters. Dot, 10, attends Lafayette School. Pat, 19, is a Wilson graduate. Monnie, 16, goes to Wilson now. “Monnie solved her rooting problem at the Wilson game last year,” Mulvey says. “She rooted for me the first half and for Wil son the second half.” Come to think of it, that’s how the game went. It was Western the first half and Wilson the sec ond half, only Wilson’s second half was bigger. Maybe Monnie better stay home this year.

Oct. 20. —Veteran Del Flanagan, 149 3 4, St. Paul, Minn., last night hand ed Steve Marcello, New England welterweight champion, 147 3 4, Providence, his first professional boxing defeat with a unanimous 10-round decision. Marcello had run up 30 victo ries in a row, but this was his first major test. He staggered Flanagan in the first round with a right hook to the jaw, but that was the only solid punch he landed in the fight. Flanagan began landing freely in the third round with hard right hands over Marcello’s low left guard and took charge of the fight the rest of the way, gaining a wide margin on the cards of the referee and both judges. The St. Paul boxer belted Mar cello heavily in the fifth and eighth rounds and at the finish the Rhode Island boxer had bruises below his right eye and on the left side of his face.
