You couldn't choose a more. welcome gift than this the world's finest Safety Razor. ROLLS RAZOR NEW RATING FOR DAVEY JONES AS EPSOM JOLT A new handicap rating: for the New Zealand sprinter, Davey Jones, will jolt people who have backed the horse for the Epsom Handicap. A.J.C. handicapper, Mr. Fred Wilson, who framed the weights for the Epsom Handicap (lm) to be run at Randwick on September 29, and gave Davey Jones 8-12, now rates him a 9lb worse horse. This is disclosed in the handicapping of the Tramway Handicap field by Mr. Wilson, and suggests that he does not give Davey Jones much chance in the Epsom Handicap. SPRINT AS BETTING GUIDE The Tramway Handicap (70 is the principal sprint race on the programme at Randwick next Saturday, when Tattersall's Club will stage the meeting. It is a race hishlv regarded as a guide to Epsom Handicap prospects. With weights on a minimum 71b higher than in the Epsom, Oversight is topweight in the Tramway Handicap with 9-5, compared with 9-0 in the bpsom. Humming Top has 8-12, against 8-2, and Davey Jones 8-10, compared with 8-12. Davey Jones s new handi cap means that if he were started in the Tramway he would meet Humming Top 121b better than in the Epsom Handicap, and Oversight 71b better. The new ratine of Davev Jones was precipitated by form at canterbury fane on Saturday. Davey Jones was bard- pressed to fill third place, benind aan Domenico and Aerofoil, in the Canterbury Stakes (6t), run at weight-forage with allowances. Davey Jones met Aerotoil 201b better than at Epsom rating, and San Domenico on 71b better terms. On that ' run trainer M. McCarten assessed Davey Jones's Epsom prospects as very slender. The horse, however, will be prepared for the Epsom Handicap, in the hope that he may rise to the occasion. Bookmakers said last night that Davey Jones would ease right out of the betting market but. for heavy commitments incurred before Epsom horses started to show form. In the early betting he ruled firm first favourite after many big doubles had been laid. As it is, thisy will keep him on the third line, at a price that is not likely to entice any further business. Trio Lowered his Epsom Impost. Boatman with 7-7, has 21b less. Both Boatman and Hra-stir have been backed for the Epsom. According to Mr. Wilson's assessments the trio French Cavalier, Drastic, and Boat man win nave to snow up prominently in the Tramway ii nicy are to nave a cnance in the Epsom. French Cavalier is a certain Tramway runner and prob- Hoiy win oe one oi tne favourites. Lists Change French Cavalier, another of McCarten's string, and one who now rules equal favourite tor the ipsom, also has a lower rating. He is handicapped at 8-2, which is the weight allotted him in tne fcpsom. Drastic, with 7-9 in the Tramway, has 41b less than v Itad to I wait a uthileA Epsom and Metronolitan lists to be issued to-day will show many differences. Bookmakers said last nieht that betting had been so desultory that markets had not become standardised. Une leading operator said: "I'll have to make my book inougn no other market was in operation. As I see it, we all have heavy commitments against different horses. The races are accroaching. and the doubles men have to look to the balancing of their books. i 'Therefore, there will be big differences in prices until things level out more satis factorily. "It looks as though there win oe pretty Keen competi tion for the money that is available for doubles betting." Ihe order of favouritism for the two races, averaged from the lists, is: EPSOM HANDICAP (To be run on Sept. ! Humming Top. Achilles, French Cavalier. Oversight, True Leader, Sin Domenico, Davey Jones, Boatman, Drastic. Blue Ocean, Golden Wedae. Great World. Grey Boots, Triclinium, Warrah King, Aero- ion.

Nobody is ever happy about having to wait for a new morris oxford. But at least there's a consolation the mere fact that so many other astute motorists want morris oxfords does confirm your own good judgment. It is a car worth having the ideal, medium-sized, comfortable, safe, reliable, family-car, with a performance impressive enough to enthuse anyone and so economical to gladden even the most careful budget-motorist. , In short, a morris oxford is a car "worth its wait!"

The limping Dick Savitt yesterday won his quarterfinal match against Budge Patty in the U.S. singles championship by sheer power, in a colourless five set match. Savitt beat Patty, 6-3, 1-6, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, before a crowd of 11,000. An even bigger attendance at Forest Hills is expected today, when Savitt plays Victor Scixas, and Frank Sedgman meets the defending champion, Art Larsen, in the semi-finals, Savitt s infected leg was bothering him, and he hobbled to the court. But by sheer ac curacy he was able to conserve his energy and provoke fatty into errors. Pattys strokemakmg was superior tor most ot tne match, but he wilted continu- elly under the pressure of Savin's awkward cannonball service. At times the slim, lightly- built Patty almost had the rac quet spun from his grasp in vain attempts to return tne service. In the second and third sets Patty's excellent placements and well-controlled lobs overcame Savitt when his service became slightly ragged. Patty made his husky oppo nent run all over the court to retrieve shots. At the end of the third set Savitt looked thoroughly beaten, but he came back with his service working well, and beat Patty back with the weight and force of his strokes. Seixas Steadier Demand For Morse Code MELBOURNE, Sunday. Warn-ings by trainer Lou Robertson that Melbourne Cup favourite Morse Code has not been pleasing him have not been heeded. Public demand for Morse Code continues persistent. Even after the horse had finished ahead of only Flying Halo (knocked back through interference) in the Memsie Stakes yesterday, bookmakers swd they were obliged to keep Morse Code Melbourne Cup tavourue. Morse Code is "tied up" in nis ninaquarters. Laurie Hussar, who will meet Iron Duke in the Feehan Stakes at Moonee Valley -next Saturday, shades Chicquita as L-aumeid Lup favourite.

Herbert Flam, runner-up last year for the title, was eliminated in his quarter-final by Vic Seixas, the conqueror of Ken McGregor. Seixas won the two hours match, 1-6, 9-7, 2-6, 6-2, 6-3. He lasted just a little better than the more brilliant Flam, and remained steadier in the crises. Frank Sedgman and Doris Hart moved into the final of the mixed doubles champion ship when they beat Charles Hare (U.S.)' and Miss Jean Quertier (Britain), 6-4,. 6-2, in a semi-final yesterday. Clearly superior, and com binine splendidly, Sedgman and Miss Hart are expected to retain the title they won last year.

The championships, to be played at Strathfield late this month, will probably be the squad's first appearance after it returns from the United States. Other Australian stars likely to appear are Bill Sidwell, George Worthington, Lewis Hoad, and Ken Rosewall. The appearance of Sedgman, McGregor and Rose is being awaited by George Worthington, who is seeking a place in the squad. Worthington decisively de feated Australian junior star Ken Rosewall in straight sets. 6-4, 6-2, to win the Hardcourt Associations singles cnam-nionship yesterday. Rosewall was unable to cope with Worthington's net-rushint; came. Rosewall's backhand, usually safe and reliable under any type of pressure, broke down so frequently that he lost confidence in tne snot This was the first time Worthington had met Rosewall, and the win was his second in Ihe championship singles. An excellent early-season nerformer. he holds the metro nolitan singles, in wnicn nei defeated Ken McGregor last year. Doubles Delay Solomon's name is in a list of backs who will be asked to train hard this week. The Blaster cast has been removed from his injured right hand and Solomon is in excellent physical condition, maintained through constant training. The injury was suffered in the August 4 match between University and Randwick at Because of darkness the final of the men's doubles, between Worthington and Bill Sidwell and Rosewall and Hoad. was not completed.

Hawton and Mrs. Fogarty, from Mrs. J Doyle and Mrs. J. Martin. Challenge For Title The new Australian flyweight champion, Taffy Hancock, yesterday challenged bantamweight champion Jimmy Car-ruthers to defend his title. Hancock regained the fly weight title by stopping Jimmy Laffin in 13 rounds at Bris bane last Friday night. His manager, Ern McQuil lan, says that Hancock could come in at 8-2 for Carruthers. but the bout must be for Car-ruthers's bantamweight .itle. I would not let Hancock fight Carruthers above the 8-6 limit. That is why 1 am insist ing on a title tight, said McQuillan. Carrutherss manager. Dr. McGirr, said: "1 will agree to Carruthers meeting Han cock, but it must be a 12- round match. 'Hancock would have to prove himself over this dis tance before Carruthers would stake his title. TACTICS IN RULES WIN Switching its forwards at half-time, Western Suburbs beat Sydney at Trumper Park yesterday to win the Australian Rules minor premiership. This is a notable achieve ment as West has been in the competition only four years. West won by 21-12 (138) to 18-13 (121) after being behind 21 points at half-time. At half-time West captain, George Hall, switched Ray Stivey from full-forward to! centre-halt-torwara. Bob Hall went from centre-half-forward to Stivey's position. Hall, who had not played well and not kicked a goal, scored four in the third Quarter. He kicked a further tout in the last quarter. Stivey, too, played better in the centre-half position and kicked three goals in the third quarter. Svdnev will now olav New town in the first semi-final next Saturday, and West will meet East in the second semi-final next Sunday. SHOCK LIKELY IN WEST SIDE Western Suburbs is likely to announce a shock selection to play five-eighth against Manly-Warringah in the second Rugby League semi-final at the S.C.G. on Saturday. West has been placed in an awkward position in finding a five-eighth since Dev Dines's old spinal injury recurred a fortnight ago. Regular five-eighth Frank Stanmore sustained a bad knee iniurv several matches ago, and Dines was moved into his position. With Dines now unavail able, West will be forced to experiment in the all-impor tant match against Manly. Ihe announcement ot West's side has been delayed until after training to-morrow afternoon. The two regular three-quar ters, winger George Bain and centre Keith Cullen, will be available again after recover ing from injuries. Both players will have to undergo a severe fitness test at to-morrow's training. Manly s side, announced lasi night, remains unchanged. Ml players are reported to be fit. Reserved Seats The N.S.W.R.L. will con sider a system of seal reservation for the grand final at its meeting to-night. A grand nnal became neces sary when the minor premier, South Sydney, was beaten by oi. vjcorge in me nrsi semi final on Saturday. It will be played at the Sports Ground on Sunday. September 23. Many officials consider that reserved seats and use of "stackers" for other seats would help raise the Sporis Ground's capacity above 'he normal 35.0UU. A suggestion that the N.S.W.R.L. stage the match with admission by ticket only has already been discussed, but is unlikely to be accepted, South' Half South Sydney will choose its side to play in the grand final alter training on I ucsday. The vacant half-back posi tion is likely to be tilled by reserve-grader Kay Mason, Regular half-back Greg i-iawicK sustained a tracturcd jaw on Saturday and last night nao it placed in a splint.

S.A.J.C. stewards yesterday investigated the possibility that the battery-rigged saddle seized at Eudunda on Wednesday had been used on major metropolitan tracks recently. No official announcement was made but it is believed fresh developments might be pending. Inquiries yesterday placed ihe name found on the saddle by police experts in the doubtful class as a clue. A lightweight jockey, who was at Eudunda, and another rider, who was successful al a recent metropolitan meeting, were called before the stewards separately yesterday. Later a prominent trainer was interrogated. From these inquiries stew ards reported that they had established the fact that a saddle was left for jockey R. Jackman at this trainer's stables and was collected by Jackman before the hudundn meeting. Further moves are likely to be made to-morrow to narrow the lines of approach to the inquiry when it reopens. There were rumours yester day that stewards conducted searches tor batteries but they were witnout foundation. Four Eastern Suburbs nlav. ers who were injured in the maicncs against Manly and Northern Suburbs have recovered, and the side is expected to be that which beat Northern Suburbs at North Sydney on August 18.

WALLSEND IS LEADER Wallsend beat Cess-nock, 3-1, at Cessnock yesterday and regained a two-point lead in the inter-city Soccer competition. With only one round remaining, Wallsend seems certain to win the minor pfemiership. The northern club is now 38 points two more than Granville and three more than Leichhardt. In the last round Wallsend meets West Wallsend at Wallsend, Granville play; Cessnock at Cessnock, and Leichhardt plays Woonona at Lambert fark.
