Joe Tinker Banished From Dodger Camp Probably Joe Tinker never thought It would happen again being tossed out of a ball park at his age. But it happened and Branch Rickey is the guy who did it. Tinker Is scouting for the Boston Braves. He stopped to see soms old friends in ths Dodger minor league camp at Sanford, Fla.

He hadn't been in the stands long when one of Rickey's hired men sat down beside him. "Aren't you Job Tinker?" asked a bit timidly. Joe admitted his Indentlty and the Rickey man spoke again: "Mr. Rickey asked you to leavs," And Joe went, wondering what baseball hud come to that an old timer, even though a scout, wasn't wanted in a ball park.

Bua Z. Reat Awhile. Blue Grass Session Is Final Roundup Of Harness Horses Transy Dates To '89. BY TOM OAHAGAN. PTC lit DISPATCH TO TBI ISQl'tltt.

Goshen, N. April 20 The management of the Trots at Lex ington, where the Grand Circuit is annually brought to a close, has announced the entries to the 20 stakes which were recently announced to be raced during the 10-day meeting and it constitutes one of the heavies entries ever received to a similar number of events. No fewer than 768 were nominated or an average of approximately 38 to a race. The Lexington meeting comes at a good time for the promoters, following the close of the majority of the leading parl- rnutuel extended meetings and also" after the majority of the state and county fair meetings have closed. It is the final roundup of th: harness racing clans and the major sales of yearlings, at Walnut Hall Farm and at Tattersalls, also do much to promote interest and bring the stables and horsemen in general to the city in the blue grass country.

The most famous of the Lexington stakes, the Transylvania, naturally received the lightest entry of any of the two-score events, being for the "free-for-all" trotting class which takes in the outstanding stars, including the super- coit. Titan Hanover the Arden Homestead Stable champion being one of the 21 named for the event. While eligible to the event the great colt might not start, even If he is at top" form at the time. He was eligible to the $10,000 American stake there last year but his owner, E. Roland Harriman, did the real sporting thing on race day and kept him in the barn.

The colt stood out over the field but with him absent it proved a high-class race, won by Errol Hanover over the heavy favorite Doctor Spencer. It would have been Just a Jog for Titan Hanover. Harriman may decide this year to start the colt at Lexington against the watch. The record for four- year-olds, also for trotting stallions, ,7 rT.M 't the 1940 -aw ri 1 i' of the best women casters In all this record with a large-mouth bass of couple of years ago in one of the local "pay" pools, fishing at night with a surface lure. No fisherman Is completely content so long as his wife can claim a larger bass than he ever has caught.

He may be happy at her success; he may be proud of her Prowess. But he can be content. Every time he takes to stream or lake won prin wh or nnt It won't be possible to regain the marital championship. But whw.i you're fishing within throwing distance of the Cincinnati municipal boundary line, and when the c.mpetltlon holds a seven-pound bass record well, as said, old Ray started out wtlh two strikes against him. But he hit a home run.

And not only that, his record for the day Included a couple of three-baggers and a good healthy double. For on thst one v.r.y the redoubtable Mr. Weisner fetched home to his little wife one lr.rge mouth weighing 8'i pounds, one of 4 '4, one of 4 and one of 2 to. Yes, it's just as said! He was fishing right here at home. He dIJn't drive a couple of thousand miles to catch that sort of a strii.g.

He took them from waters open to all of you, every day of every week. Of course I'm not going to tell you the exact ame of the lakes he worked two on this particular day but I'll give you this hint: They are within a few minutes' driving distance of your own front door. FOR MANY YEARS Ray has been an ardent believer In the wobbling spoon as an effective game-fish lure. On this particular Instance he was using a Weezel, black-and-white a bait on which he reports consistent success. Whether or not his largest fish is an all-time record in the Cincinnati area, I can't say.

But certainly it is a record for catches of recent years. The big fellow will be mounted and placed on the wall of the Weisner home above the former title-holder, the 7-pounder which Lucille snagged. And now, we presume, Mrs. Weisner will be discontented. After all, there may be a 10-pounder lurking somewhere! RECOUNTING his experience, Ray says he thought "the bottom of the lake had exploded" when the big bass struck.

He had cast over a patch of grass toward the shore and raised his rod tip to bring the spoon wiggling across the surface of the water and through the grass. As the lure passed the weeds. Rav stormed reellne for a second allowing the spoon to wobble down 8 1 'v Figures From Florida, Xew York Coast Show. Metropolitan Turf Players Going Against 16 Per Cent Takeout, Increase Over 1945. BY SID FEDER.

New York, April 20-(AP) The horse, it would appear, la here to tay. All lndlcationi are that racing ii taking off on a trip Into the dollar-sign stratosphere that will mane an previous netting millions look like small change. Already betting records have been chalked up all over the South and West during the winter. Loaded Louisville actually is pleading for people not to come to the Derby. And New York rung up a fantastic average of just under $2,800,000 for each of the first nine days of its season.

From these and assorted other forecasts like the $2,500,000 in purses put up by Arlington and Washington Parks in Chicago in anticipation of what's ahead the general impression is that the race horse Is either the darling of the sports fan for 1946, or else knows more about gold digging than the gal who wrote the book, MONDAYS ARE LIGHT. The tipoff on the merry-go-round the racing fan la riding this year came on the first dull blue Monday cf the Jamaica meeting, April 8. Usually the fans shun the horse park on Monday, even if some enterprising promoter throws in free dishes and bing-o for bait. That particular day it rained dismally all afternoon. Two of the seven races attracted unattractive fields of four horses, preventing Know betting.

The fields In two ether heats were the kind that ordinarily leave Two-Buck Benny with his hands in his pockets, tightly clutching his bankroll so it won't get away from him. Yet, some 33,000 slighty damp cash customers Jammed the Jamaica sardine can which can accomodate 18,500 comfortably that day and wagered $2,376,222 against this set-up. If they'll do that under those conditions, anything can happen and probably will. They do it In New York, too, despite a total of 16 per cent bite from every dollar bet 6 per cent for the state, 4 for the track, the customary estimated 1 per cent for breakage and a brand-new 5 per cent for the hard-up city. $25,115,450 BET.

All told, 322,993 horse-players sent into me Jamaica iron men through the first nine iays, despite the arbitrary ban Imposed this year against the popular dally double betting. Through these first nine days the state's slice of the Jamaica pie was $1,506,144 and financially embarrassed Pa Knickerbocker, who didn't cut In for the first live after noons, came up with $586,144 as the seven pounds. She'd caught it a Here is Ray Weisner and string of fish he caught in one of the local lakes. into deeper water. It was at that instant the record-smasher hit.

came clean out of the water on his first jump, and made several breaks afterward, the fisherman told me. While the big-mouth hass is reputed to be much less active than his small-mouth cousin, Weisner reported that this bronze-back seemed to have everything in the book. He jumped, sulked and ran, with all the strength in his big body, before he finally was lifted carefully from the water. After that, Ray says, he had to sit down to recover his composure, He wasn't quite sure whether he'd I whipped the bass or th whipped him. Bucyrus, Ohio, April 20 (AP) A large mouth black bass weighing pounds 5 ounces was displayed today by James Baker, a sporting goods dealer.

He caught it in the city's old reservoir. Old times said they knew of no larger bass ever having been caught in this vicinity. It was 21 inches in length. Stretch Charge the hard wav today. A 119.70 for 12 shot in the betting, he sat some five lengths behind the flying pace.
