Meet Conflict and Rain
Hit Hagerstown Opening
•tor lUetnt Ml tor
HAGERSTOWN, Md., Aug. 18.
—The War Between the States
was revived here yesterday, but
this time it was fought with dol
lars and totalisators as the
Hagerstown -and Charles Town
race tracks butted heads for the
first time in 17 years.
The first skirmish went to
Hagerstown as the half-mile
track opened its annual 10-day
meeting with a surprisingly good
turnout of 4,877 fans, who wag
ered 8331,294 on eight races
despite the weather. Rain fell
from the fourth race on.
Charles Town, nearing com
pletion of its 44-day summer
meet, which ends Saturday, re
ported an official attendance of
3,887 and total betting of $192.-
078 on nine races as heavy rain
marred the program.
Wont Day of Meeting
It was the lowest one-day at
tendance and betting of the
West Virginia track’s meeting.
The Hagerstown meet con
cludes Saturday, August 27.
Although Hagerstown drew a
larger crowd and heavier wager
ing the results were far from
satisfactory as yesterday’s bet
ting represented a 36 per cent
decrease from last year’s total
of $353,307. wagered by 7,631
fans on opening day.
Since Hagerstown races only
10 days a year, there cannot
be any prolonged conflict be
tween the two racing associa
tions. But yesterday proved that
Little Leaguers
In South Propose
Own Association
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 18
(JP).— little Leagues of Jefferson
County, Ala (Birmingham), last
night adopted a resolution criti
cizing Little League Baseball.
Inc.—the National Little League
governing body—and calling for
leagues In other Southern States
to Join In studying the possibil
ity of forming a "Southern As
sociation of Little Leagues.”
Thus the city which won the
Little League world champion
ship In 1953 Is evidently splitting
wit hthe national organization.
"Continuation of the estab
lished customs and traditions of
the locality” was the purpose
outlined in the resolution.
The custom or tradition in
Question is the racial problem
which has not yet been faced in
Alabama, but which was en
countered a few weeks ago in
South Carolina and Florida.
"Our purpose is to see that
these kids are able to continue
to play baseball in the summer
months,” Ernest V. Weir, Birm
ingham attorrney serving in a
volunteer capacity, said last
night. "Regardless of how you
and I feel about it, we are not
going to allow our Little Leagues
to be made a political football.”

Elton King, also of Washing
ton, was eliminated by Ronald
Charity, 6—3, 6—l.
competition is nearly disastrous
for the two tracks, located Just
27 miles apart.
With both tracks depending
heavily for patronage from
Washington and Baltimore, it
appeared from yesterday’s figures
that Hagerstown and Charles
Town would split the potential
attendance and betting in the
Charles Town, with a 9 per
cent take from the betting dollar
and with 100 racing days, is in
a far better position to absorb
competition than Hagerstown,
with 10 days and an approximate
7.8 per cent take.
The Hagerstown meeting con
tinues this afternoon with today
being officially tabbed Governor’s
Day. Gov. McKeldln will be on
hand to officiate and Nancy

Under Restraint in Mud
Aug. 18 (JP).—' With Eddie Arcaro
holding him under stout re
straint, Nashua splashed 7 fur
longs at Saratoga yesterday in
an Impressive 1:26% and eased
up a mile in 1:40%.
The Belalr Stud worked in a
driving rain and over a track
that had been drenched by
Tuesday night’s heavy storm.
He seemed to revel in the going.
This was Nashua’s best work
out since he was returned to
training for his match race
with Swaps on August 31.
Trainer Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons
had planned to work him much
faster, but changed his plans
because of the weather and
dockers caught Nashua going
the first quarter in 23% seconds,
the half mile in 48, 5 furlongs
in 1:00% and the 8 furlongs
in 1:13%. Arcaro began taking
a strong hold of him leaving the
half-mile pole and from there
to the finish the big colt was
fighting for his head.

Bertrand (Jocko) Conlan,
veteran National League um

ball and a hearty chuckle
at the same time.
Conlan was hospitalised
here for a short time with
a back ailment. This gave
him a good opportunity to
listen to some games on
radio and see a few on TV.
“After what I heard I
can’t understand how any
body can criticize an umpire
or a player.” said Conlan.
“They tell you Joe Doakes
is coming to the plate and
he's a long-ball hitter. Then
they give you his record:
two homers, eight RBIs and
batting average of 212.
Long-ball hitter? How did
he ever get into the park?
“I guess part of the an
nouncer’s Job is to try to
explain to the fans what
great stars these .212 hitters
are,” concluded Conlan.
