BY SID FEBER Louisville, Ky., April 22 —(/I 1 )— The boss along the backside nt Churchill Downs lodny were tabbing this year's Derby tis a "two- horse" tussle between Ben Jones and Count Fleet. .The Count may be best, horse, they tell you, but Ben's baby -Ocean Wave's flic ntimc - is going to be (he ".sharpest." And as a result of the way the Wave rolled in like surf - board on a breaker to take the Blue Grass Slates yesterday, the old batllccry went from barn to bnrn — "y'gotta keep up with the Joncsc, boys." There's no doubt (hat the Wave is as fit a Commando right now, primed by Planin Ben's training magic for the race of his life, just like Ben had Whirlawny two years ago and Lawrin back in '38. The husky son of Blenheim 11 came off the pace ycslcrday, went right past Amber Light in the stretch like a guy driving n carload of gold going by a hitchhiker at midnight, and hit the payoff window 2 1-2 lengths to the good over the oat-burner who nipped him in the Louisiana Dcrb last February. Meantime, far up the track and practically our of sight staggered Seven Hearts, who hung it on the Wave by four lengths in the Arkansas Derby a month ago. There's a generally accepted field of a dozen or 13 starters for Col. Mail Winn's may day taffy pull here, with Count Fleet the head man. Wilh his Blue Grass victory which marked the close of Kecncland's transplanted meeting - the Wave now ranks No. 2. The rest of the starting field probably will include Blue Swords, who came down with the Count; Ameribcr Light, Seven Hearts, Valdina Sol and Dove-Pie, from among yesterday's well-yal- New York, April 22 —(/P)— The opening-day major league scores lead us to wonder whether the 1943 model baseball really is dead, or just the hitters. . .' And what became of the idea that managers wouldn't let (heir prise pitchers risk their arms for more than four or five innings in the early games? Johnny Vander Mecr and Mort Cooper probably will tell you they couldn't learn a thing now from Bill Cox' commando training. . . The Phils and Braves plan to play a morning game in June for the benefit of war workers. Well, that's one way of discouraging absenteeism. Big Time Stuff New York City, which always has been a bu?h league town when it came to providing sports for kids, finally is coming up with a first-class competitive program this May 2, apparently with a prize tied to every pin. Light Workout Clarence DC Mar, the 55-year old Maralhoner, didn't figure he had to take a day off to run in his 25th Boston Marathon last Sunday. . . As usual, he milked the cows on his Reading, Mas., farm; took a bus to Hopinton: shuffled 26 miles, 3B3 yards to finish 17th; went home for dinner and another look at the cows, then went to work on the 8 p.m.4 a.m. shift in the Boston Herald Composing room Why, the guy must be an amateur. Service Dept. If you have any spare sports spring. One reason for the delay was that there wasn't any dough to buy prizes — and no prizes, no turnout. . Now with $10,000 that it took all winter to dig up, the Dept. of Parks reports an entry of more than 20,000 boys and girls from 12 to 18 years old in 13 events, ranging from basketball and Softball to shufflcbpard and (no kidding) horseshoe pitching. . . City finals will be held in June and when you get teams like the 49th St. Rangers playing roller hockey with $25 war bonds at stake, we figure it will be something to wait for.

Great Hurling Features First Day of Baseball By JUDSON BAILEY I£ opening day in the major leagues was any criterion, this may be the greatest pitchers' year in baseball history. Four game, four shutouts, two of Them 1-0, one of them 11 innings! Weather conditions permitted only half of the eight scheduled inaugural games to be played yesterday, and held down attendance at these contests to 55,021 fans, but classic pitching made the day worth remembering. Looking at the day's business in composite there was a total of only 11 runs, 42 hits of which just nine were for more than one base, and up till the seventh inning there had been but three runs scored. Th most magnificent mound show was given the largest crowd, 7,709 at Crosley Field in Cincinnati, where lefty Johnny Vander Mcer and Mort Cooper dueled for 11 innings before the Reds finally squeezed in front of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals 1-0. Vander Meer, who could look forward to his greatest year if he were not awaiting a call for induction, held the Cardinals to two hits, both of them singles in the first three innings. In one sup'erb stretch he retired 21 consecutive batters, most o£ whom never even got the ball out of the infield. Cooper was in occasional trouble, but he worked out of his jams and up till the llth had allowed only four hits. Then Lonny Frey beat out One-Minute Sports Page Lieut. Benny Leonard of the U. S. Maritime Service probably will referee the Pvt. Johnny Greco-Terr Young brawl at Montreal May 8. . And Col. A. G. While, who is handling the affair to buy sports equipment for Canadian soldiers, is trying to get Barney Ross up there to give a ringside talk booting Canada's Victory Loan and U. S. Wai- Bonds. Trainer Cecil Wilhelm says that until Devil's Thumb was j injured, he hadn't seriously considered Slide Rule as a derby candidate, which explains why the colt is a bit behind in his training. . . The LaCrosse, Wis., "700" Bowling Club, only one of its kind, will hold its second annual swceptake an infield hit, was sacrificed to second and came sprinting home on a single by Max Marshall. A struggle almost as spectacular wa taged for 13,847 fan in Cleveand's big municipal stadium, as Lhe Indians nosed out the Detroit Tigers, 1-0, with a run in the ninth. Tim Bagby who had tamed the Tigers in last year's opener, again was the star. He held Detroit to three hits and drove in the winning run with a long fly. The veteran Tommy Bridge was staged for 13,847 fans in Cleveland hits, but he couldn't stop the Indians' battery. Bagby made two safeties and Catcher Warren (Buddy) Rosar, acquricd from the New York Yankees during the winter, accounted for three. In the nfnth innnig Roy Cullen- binc walked, Rosar doubled and Ray Mack was purposely passed to load the bases. Then Bagby clouted a long fly to right and the game was over. The Pittsburgh Pirates handcuffed the Chicago Cubs, 60, with Truett (Rip) Sewell scattering three hits. Paul Derringer, makin{ his debut in a Cub uniform before 9,044 fans at Wrigley Field, Chi cago; was plastered for four tal lies and Manager Jimmy Wilson had to use three other hurlers to finish the game, Pittsburgh mad ten hits. At St. Louis, Left Al Boilings worth pleased a small turnout o 4,421 by pitching the Browns to a 3-0 triumph over the Chicago Whiti Sox on four hits. The Brown; bagged eight hits, but were held tc one run by bespectacled Bill Die trich till the seventh, when they clinched the victory with anothe pair. The same teams were matchec again today, with opening ceremon ies planned at the four caster parks which were closed yester day. Tomorrow, Good Friday, is a open date in both leagues.

MONTADORES CHAPTER XVI T-TIS fever had once more miraculously disappeared during the njght, Barry woke to the golden fragrance of a tropic morning feeling weak but clearheaded. He lay listening to the loud chatter of macaws, parrots and the thousand and one varieties of birds that flashed their bright hues about the estancia. "Good morning, lazy bones!" Allison was in his doorway. There was a bright light of eagerness in her as she carried in his tray, laughter in her voice. She spread his napkin for him and touched her small hand lightly to his foreheat}. ,<• "You're fine," she said with malicious joy, "No excuse for not coming out and helping initiate my zoot caps." "What are you talking about?" Barry frowned as he drank his pineapple juice. She stood beside him laughing, hei golden hair a ragged auricle about her heart- shaped face whose whiteness had now disappeared under a honey Ian. "Meet me out in the clearing and you'll see," she taunted. Barry drank his coffee and ate the two eggs with relish this morning. He felt stronger than he had for a long time and a surge of fresh hope went through him. Maybe he had thrown the fever for a real loss this time. He got up and put on the clothes laid out for him and went out of the estancia. It was a large thatched house on stilts with a broad veranda, from which could be seen the half dozen smaller shacks of the chi- cleros and the wide clearing that surrounded the massed estancias. On every side crouched the vibrant green lush jungle waiting to devour the puny resistance of man's efforts against it. Barry made his way unsteadily down the broad steps of the estancia and crossed the sun- washed,' muddy clearing toward the boiling kettles. Allison sauntered to meet him. "The montadores came in this morning," she reported breathlessly. "Montadores?" Barry puzzled. * * * TIER eyes twinkled with mis- •*"*• chief. "Montadores are our chicle sco.uts, tenderfoot." "Yes, my calloused chiclero, 1 Barry retorted mjjpkly. "You see," she explained, "It's •ery naughty of them, but zapote rees don't grow all in one place. They go just where they please o live their lives." ' "Like you," jeered Barry. "Like me," she laughed. "So ve have to send out montadores o cut trails to the new grove. Rough boys, aren't they?" She and Barry joined the two montadores who stood in the sun iear the boiling kettles giving then- report to Renaldo. They were powerful, ugly-looking natives, ooking more like exhausted, Uthy animals than men after their long, grueling tussle with the ungle. Renaldo turned to greet Barry with a smile. "Sounds like we've :ot a fair-sized grove from what ;hey say," he said, his voice ring- ng with satisfaction. "Isn't it thrilling?" Allison cried. "To just go out and discover your orchard?" "Thrilling maybe, but tough," mused Barry as the two monta- dores, now dismissed, moved icavily oft toward their estancias. His gaze returned to the girl beside him. Her violet eyes were wide and shining. "That's it," she was whispering. "That's the jungle. Thrilling—and tough. You can scream your head off, but you can't faze it. You have to fight every minute for your life." Barry's mouth dropped open in amazement. "Why, you scrappy little varmint," he said. Renaldo laughed, but the look he turned on Allison was pure devotion. "She understands the jungle," he said. Allison caught Barry's arm with sudden change of mood. "Come on," s.he cried jubilantly. "You're going to see my zoot caps." She walked quickly down the wide trail striped with yellow sunlight and deep shadow that led to the closest group of zapote trees. But, though she chattered gaily, Barry noted her hand rested lightly on the small gun in the holster slung about her slender hips, and her eyes kept alertly on the path ahead. • * * * CHE broke off to answer his un° spoken question. "Bushmasters," she said shortly. "Renaldo says they're the meanest snakes in the jungle. They'll find a path that's used often and lie in wait all day for a victim." "I know," Barry agreed. "Bui you mean you've learned to shoot that gun already?" "You can learn fast when you have to," she laughed. They had come to the group of zapote trees and stopped to watch he native chiclero slashing a zigzag gash down the length of the zapote trunk. Barry found he vas seething with sudden anger over the girl's statements. "Look here," he protested, as she waited for the chiclero to descend, "you don't have to stay out lere in the jungle." She didn't answer, and he prodded, "Do you?" She shrugged then and looked ip at him, confusion and laughter jotli in her eyes. "You don't have o do anything," she murmured, 'including live. But you find yourself in the midst of something you want to go on with for a while. I never know why. But t doesn't matter, does it? It keeps t all pretty fascinating." She broke off to point with excitement. "Now you can see the zoot cap." The chiclero was almost at the loot of the tree. He wore sharp .eg'irons to dig in and hold himself upright against a rope looped around himself and the tree. He was naked except for loin cloth and a white hood with visor which tied under his chin. Barry suppressed a laugh at the startling combination. "Is that bonnet supposed to be a thing of beauty?" he asked. "Certainly not," snapped Allison. She called the native to lower his head, and pointed triumphantly at stains on the visor. "Poison drippings from the com- padre tree," she said. "Some of those drops might have gone in liis eyes. Later on, I'm going to see if I can send for some goggles. Meanwhile," she added proudly, "the sides of the cap protect his ears from that nasty insect that lives in the top of the zapote tree." The chiclero had reached the ground. Another Indian was hanging a canvas bag to a peg driven at the bottom of the zigzag gash, and the chicle was already flowing along the jagged cuts. "Lady," said Barry, "you come right after the grand canyon. Now if you'd use a little of your ingenuity to make a little sense out of your own plans." She brushed a bright tumble of hair back with the back of her hand and gave him an impish smile. "Don't worry about my plans, my fine-feathered friend," she murmured. "Just be on your guard." She turned sharply and started back through the muddy path toward the estancia, leaving Barry grinning helplessly after hei. (To Be Continued) LEE HATS Of fine quality Fur Felt. 2-oz. weight.
