Seabiscuit Beats War Admiral for Title 61 US. No. I Horse Seabiscuit Sets New Track Record at Pimlico, 1 Minute 56 3/5th Seconds for 1 3/16ths Miles BALTIMORE, Md.~(/P)—Scabiscuit left the great War Admiral struggling far behind with n record-smashing performance In their long-awaited mnlch race at Pimlico Tuesday. The one-time selling plater, carrying ®the red and while sliks of Charles S. Amendment 28 Is Opposed by City Council of Hope Pass Resolution Condemning Proposed Measure as Unfair GRASS FIRE ORDER $85 Is Appropriated Burn Grass Under Supervision to The city council Tuesday night went on record opposing proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 28, terming it as "grossly unfair and unjust to the 500,000 Arkansas citizens living in incorporated cities and towns of the state." The resolution condemning the proposed measure follows: 'Whereas, proposed Amendment No. 28 to the Constitution—popularly known as the "Refunding Amendment"—would permanently prevent cities and towns in Arkansas from obtaining a share of the gasoline tax receipts which their own streets have been earning for 17 years; and "Whereas, Amendment No. 28 is, therefore, grossly unfair and unjust to the 500,000 Arkansas citizens living in incorporated cities and towns: "Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That We, the City Council of Hope lircby denounce proposed Amendment No. 28 ns contrary to the best interests of the motor vehicle owners and citizens of Hope and recommend to the citizens of Hope that they vote against this proposed Amendment No. 28 at the polls on November 8, 1938." Firemen to Burn Grass Fire Chief J. K. Sale appeared before the council and asked nn appropriation of $85 to be used in burning grass in the city limits. He pointed out that during the past month the fire department answered 26 alarms of which 22 were for grass fires. The council granted the request Residents of Hope are urged not to Howard oC San Francisco, matched the Admiral's famed early speed with more speed, stuck to his rival like a leech mid-way of the backstretch .-"id then pulled away with a final drive that sent him under the wire three lengths in front with a new track record for a mile and three-sixteenths. The Biscuit, held at slightly more Hum 2-to-l as the crowd of 40,000 sent the odds on Samuel D. Riddle's star tumbling to l-to-4, ran the distance in 1:50 3-5. The time clipped one-fifth second off the mark created by Pom- poon last spring after Seabiscuit himself had set a new record of 1:57 2-5 last fall. In the mulucls, Seabiscuit paid ?6.40 fur ?2. Second Largest Winner In less than two minutes, Seabiscuit settled a year-old argument, won $15,000 and went into second place among the world's leading money winning horses. The triumph boosted the Biscuit's earnings to $340,480, only $30,000 short of Sun Beau's world mark of $370,744, and gave him a record of 32 wins, 12 seconds and 13 thirds, in 84 starts during four years of racing from coast to coast. His greatest successes have been since Howard took him out of the Wheatley stable for $8,000 late in 1936 after he had met with little success. For War Admiral, the defeat meant the loss of a chance to again be acclaimed the horse of the year as he was in 1937, when he nosed out Sca,blscuit in a nation-wide pole of sport writers. It was only the second time in two years that the four-year-old son ol Man o' War has been beaten. It will not mean the end of the Admiral's racing career. Trainer George Conway, offering no excuses, said he would ship the Riddle star to Narra- .gansetl park for the Rhode Islam handicap on November 12. Presen plans for the Biscuit call for him to go after the Riggs at Pimlico Saturday. Race Only in Backstretch • The majority of the crowd came expecting U> see a real horse race all the way with Charley Kurtsingcr sending War Admiral away in front and George Wolf trying to catch him with Seabis- cuit in the final drive. But actually was only a duel for three-eighths of a mile. That was on the backstretch when the Atlmiral moved up and took a head advantage . For a few strides it looked as if War Admiral was go- i>ig to jpull away but the son of Hard Star J WEATHER. Arkansas — Cloudjj, probably showers in northwest portwn Wednesday night and Thursday, and in central portion Thursday.

Waive License Fee The council granted a request of Cecil Weaver to waive the city license fee on a tent show that the American Legion post will sponsor here November 14-19. The council referred to the Board of Public Affairs the proposal for construction of an electric light line extending from West Sixteenth street on the Spring Hill road. The council favored the proposal and recommended its approval by the Board of Public Affairs. Graveling IN Delayed A discussion was heard on the proposed graveling of dirt streets in Hope with the aid of WPA. The matter, however, was delayed until the street committee could ascertain just how much aid that could be obtained from the WPA. Police Chief Clarence Baker filed his report for October which showed 27 arrests with a total cash collection from fines of $204,50. The report showed eight persons had laid out fines in jail or did street work in the amount of $80. Cash from trash hauling was reported us $91. Tack lived up to his name and refused to give ground. Coming to the mile post, Kurls'mgor sensed the Admiral was weakening and* went to the whip, one of the few times in the colt's career that it was nepesspry..tq,.usc.-a, .persuaded* But the Admiral didn't have it. Without once raising hit bat, Woolf hand-rode Sea- biscuit into a length advantage and with every stride he widened the margin until at the finish he had his rival badly mcaten. By J. P.

Hutchcns, local representative of the American Federation of Labor announced Wednesday that the mass labor meeting scheduled at Hope city hall Friday night had boon postpone( until Holiday night, November 7. The postponement was made to prevent a conflict with the Hope High School football game against Blytheville here Friday night. Hutchcns said that Harry Malcom deputy labor commissioner of Little Rock, would be the principal speaker on Monday night's program and woul< give detailed information about-the new federal wage & hour law and thi social security compensation.

' '•* Anderson also reported that Homer Eatman of the Coopers International Union had arrived in Hope to investigate a reported disagreement' at the Hope Heading company plant. Democratic Senate Nominees Hard-Pressed in "Grain Belt" Hot Springs business leaders, atlend- ng a Communications Commission learing on a requested transfer of <THS's license to Radio Enterprises, expressed surprise at the suggestion but questioned Barton's authority to waive a contract providing the station's removal. Lawyers for the city of Hot Springs told Commission Examiner George Hill 1936 contract under which Barton agreed to buy the station from a former Board of Governors of the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce for $75,000 was contingent, first, upon the commission's approval of the assignment of the station's license to him, and second, upon its approval of moving the station to Little Rocn. The removal provision was a principal point qf court battles in Arkansas by the present board of governors of the chamber in seeking to repudiate the sale contract. The city's lawyers contended Tuesday that to approve the transfer ol the license without approving the moving of the station would leave the chamber with a worthless contract The hearing came up on applicatioi of the chamber for assignment of the license to Barton's company. The commerce body was not represented Tuesday.

Don Warringlon, all-state end, was injured at the time and did not even break into the lineup as a substitute. Stripped of these outstanding stars, all of which arc playing freshman football at various colleges, Head Coach Joe Dilcly, Nashville, Ark., boy and his first lieutenant, Mitchell Best, McCrory product, have had to pick this year's eleven from last year's reserve list, aided by the return o wo second stringers in 1936. Starling Young, who played second iddle to Warrington two seasons ago, •ecnrolled and was promptly given ho task of filling Robert's No. ll's Joe Bartholomew, a reserve guard the same year and who weighs 225 pounds was entrusted to Wise's old left tackle 3ost.

Confident of" Fall Victories in Kansas and Iowa And in East, Democrats Must Sweep Big Cities If They Win GRAIN PRICES LOW McGill, Kansas, Author of Farm Bill, But Wishes He Wasn't By RODNEY DUTCHER NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON.—In the most populous states Republican candidates usually are strongest in rural districts and Democratic candidates in the biggest cities. That has been increasingly true since President Roosevelt began aiming his appeal at the "lower one-third," the workers and the relief families, and the phenomenon seems even more accentuated than ever in senatorial contests this year wl)en prices of farm, products are at low levels despite sev- »ral years of New Deal farm programs. In New York state Republican can- ddates usually*do well outside New York City. They "come down to the Bronx," as District Attorney Dewey will, with 'majorities running into hundreds of thousands of votes, only to be beaten—at least hi recent election years—by overwhelming New York City Democratic majorities. In Ohio Senator Bulkly must depend on Cleveland for a big majority if he is to beat Robert Taft, who will clean up in the rest of the state. The Democratic ticket in Pennsylvania seems sure of defeat if it can't carry Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Former Senator Barbour will win in New Jersey if Mayor .Hague doesn't provide a huge Democratic majority in Jersey City. And in Illinois Republicans presumably will "come up to Cook County," meaning Chicago, with a big downstate margin. Big Fight in California In Illinois Congressman Scott Lucas, conservative Democrat backed in the primary by Governor Horner, is widely expected to beat'State Senator Richard J. Lyons unless he is knifed by Chicago's Kelly-Nash machine. Lyons is a good campaigner, however, has been hitting on all fronts and is strong downstate. In California, where the "ham and eggs" pension plan espoused by Democratic candidates looms large as an issue, liberals and labor groups support Sheridan Downey, who beat McAdoo in the primaries and now faces Republican Philip Bancroft. Bancroft capitalizes on anti-C. I. O. sentiment in the state and is backed vigorously by Herbert Hoover. "Ham and Eggs" may elect Downey or defeat him. Although the administration backed Senator Ryan Duffy in Wisconsin after the LaFollette organization re- 'used to accept him, most prophets think Duffy will be beaten by elderly ,ieut.-Gov. Herman Ekern, Progressive, or Alexander Wiley, Republican. Duffy vigorously defends the New Deal. But there's no great Democratic voting strength in Wisconsin. Former Senator Lester J. Dickinson of Iowa was beaten by only 36,000 in .936 and whaling away at the New Deal like the good Hoover pal he is, loping to beat Senator Guy Gillette rle has a good chance, Republcans say, aut isn't one of their best bets. Many Republicans like Gillette because he opposed the Court plan. Secretary Wallace recently went to the state to praise Gillette and lambaste Dickinson. Senator McGill of Kansas is co-author of the present farm bill and probably wishes he wasn't Kansas is s die-hard Republican state, McGill isn' a strong candidate and wheat price are very low. The victor is likely to be forme Governor Clyde M. Reed, political foe of Alf Landon and National Chairmai John Hamilton. Democrats insist Senator Brown o New Hampshire is "in," but Republi cans think his opponent, Congressmai Charles W.
