Twonley, Tnwnley, a Preston business man whose silks have raced only the last three seasons, won ISO (Hit) . pound f$60,0001 by baching his three-year-old bay colt in one of England's biggest belling coups in 30 years. But the horse and his rifler, Donnis Schoficld. had to survive a foul claim to make 'the victory official. The objection on a eh;! 17,'" of crowding, was lodged by Jockey Charlie Hmirke. who finished second on Koyal Tara, halt' a length behind. Smirke said later t'ne sle\varcls not only overruled his claim that .he was jostled by the winner, but '.'fined me 25 pounds (SlOtli for making a frivolous objection." - Two lenyihs behind 'Koyal Tara. the French-bred Patchouli- and the well-liked Impeccable linished in a <iead heat for third place in the bulky Held of :-;2.

Laney Attacks i's Civil Memphis, Oct. 27 —(/Ti—Gov.

Strom Thurmond and Feilding | Wright, Lancy declared that Mr. Truman recogni7.es this fact. "Mr. Truman in making the order setting up the committee on civil rights admitted this when he requested thai a civil rights' program be set up, either by 'legislation or otherwise.' " the Arkansas governor said. He added: "The (prcsiciont si committee on civil rights admitted the unconstitutionality of the whole procedure iwhen it said, 'there is nothing in the constitution which in so many words autlhori7.es Ihe national government to protect the civil rights ,ol the American people on a com- Iprehensive basis.' '' Lancy listed several other specific grounds on which he said he Opposed the president's civil riL-hl; | program, probably the deciding (factor in formation of the States ! Rights parly. I "1.
