Rims The' Race, Giants' Prospects Are Dimmest Of Last ' Scvenil Seasons Aic of I lira years ago. ami in no condition Today's Sport Parade By HENRY McLEMOR* LOS ANGELES, March -I. tUPi — A game-legged horse with a heart to match was king of the turf today. His story is the racing equivalent of "The Ugly Duckling." and the lo be ill n race, he gave Seabiscuil mtigninrciu ride, it was Pollnrd, a cripple himself during Sjeabis- cuit's retirement, who stayed witli the Biscuit night and day. walked him, jogged, petted him. ami nursed him along until he was ready rot the racing wars once more. All of these things—Seabismtt'.s rise from an all but broken down two yen- old who sold for $7.500; Ills comeback iifler <i year away from the track: his two heartbreaking photo finish dsfcats in earlier handicaps; the faith and love of his jockey; the smashing I'lliiinx to become the greatest money winner of them all—all of tiling!! combined to maki: the sixth race at .Santa Anltu Saturday a drama unequalled on the American ItnT. What will the HisciiH do now? No one knows right now, not even Ills owner. Clvirles S. Howard, The .- -... _„.., „ „ „ „„... chances arc. however, that Sea- final chapter of it was written in i u ' sclli ' right now as sound us lie the rim down the stretch at Santa Anita Saturday afternoon. It was then and there that Sea- biscuit, who once had a price of only $2,500 on his head, pounded from the dust into the clear and began erasing Sun Beau's name from the books as the greatest money winner of all time. ' -He wasn't made to do it. The little gnome of a fellow on his back didn't touch him with the whip. He just sal there, a passenger, as one of the greatest thor- , - oughbreds of all time did what he best likes to do—run. The crippled legs that forced him into retirement for a year might have been hurling him, and the burden on his back might have been heavy, but you never would ever ivas in his life, will be kept In training and sent out for the Hollywood r;old cup in the summer. Victory there where the purse Is $50.000, would lift his earnings lo i-tii-l) a figure that his name would lead them all for many, unny years to come.

March 4 (UP) —George Pace, hard-hitting Cleveland negro, Is the 7-5 favorite (0 become undisputed bantam-weight champion of the world by licking Lou Salica of New York lonighl at Maple Leaf Gardens. Doth Pace and Saliea, former champion, approached tod-MS weigh-in worried because neither was certain of being able to register under the 118-pound limit Pace was favored because of his harder punch and his speed nnd Ills youth. He was recognized as champion by the. U. S. National Boxing Association. But S-ilua who held the crown back in 1935 is recognized by the New York Commission. This title dispute was caused by Sixto Escobar's vacating of the crown last year because of weighl- innkiiij,' difficulties. The Puerto Rican gave up the croivn, and Pace claimed it. Fear of missing lh e 118-pound limit is emphasized by yesterday's laxl-iuituKe training. Both Pace and Salica went through six rounds "t boxing each in addition to limbering exercises and rope skipping. This is a new departure because invaiiably boxers training for a title' bout content themselves with libeling exercises on the eve of battle, ilnt Pace scaled 119 yesterday, and Salica 118'.4 after their workouts. Both realized the necessity «f drying out. The National Boxing Association, the New York Commission, and lhe Ontario Commission have agreed to recognize tonight's winner as world champion. Because of this significance- and because bantiun fights are especially enjoyed in Toronto, Promoter Jack Corcoran j anticipates a crowd of 10.000 and n ' sate of $15,000. i Hubbard Quint Meets Missouri Team Thursday The Hubbard Hardware Independent basketball team of Ulyihc- ville.U'ill play (he Brown Shoe Factory team of Canithersvillc, here Tniirsdny night in a return game after having been defeated by the Missourians in a game at Cfinith- ersvillc yesterday afternoon.
