By OSCAR KKAl.HY l!««<d frrw Sports Writer NEW YORK, April IB. ilT.l'.)— ! Bruce Woodcock, the Hrlllsh heavyweight champion, Is a "sissy." You can take thht from 'n lltlte, red-moustachioed long-distance runner nnmed Ken Bnlly. The plck- 'e:n-up mid lay-'em-down Briton, who came hcio from England to run in Boston's Patriot Day Mura- thon- commemorating the start of our freedom from Britain--insists on that. "He wouldn't run n few failles In Newfoundland with m* this morn- ig," Bally comiiliilned. That the snow was only a feu- feel deep didn't bother the mini from Bournemouth.

So It wus up and over. First off the plant was n smiul- looklni; bnmettt- und a reporter remarked: "Hubba hubbn." To which she replied: "Thank you." Of the 30 pussentjers aboard. Woodcock made the last exit, even If he was the Ural European champion to make u trtths-oceiinlu flight "You can't louch him until he gets through the customs," a guard warned, "Ix-t Mnuriello do that," piped ui: nil observer, leferrhiK to Bruco's American dt'but lit Madison 3<|tiurc "lui'tlcn Mtvy is against Tumi MHM- lello.

" The cuily-hulred boy from Enii- hind got none of that, despite his amtiZfment. Anil, tinder the barrage of questions, he admitted that he'd like to fight both Joe Louis and Hilly Conn.

I %%v 1 I I i i i i 1 1 i For the Easter Parade A liot-bcd ir which plnnls for next spring's garden cnn be started this winter in lb-2 basement, or any room of the house, and groxvn to Jrnns plant ing size under artificial light, is illustrated. V. T. Stoulmeycr and Albert W. Glose of the United States depart- fticnl of agri;iultnre developed Ihc model shov/n, wliich uses fluorescent lamps to supply light. More than a hiiruh ctl yrars ago N. B. Ward, hweiito.- ot Ihc \Vardinn case, nu\v called (he i«-rrarhini, grew plants under-;;,TS light, experimentally. But unliE now it has been impractical to rupply sufiicicnt light avtificislly. \vUlio\it also developing too much heat. The lluoi-cf^cnt lamp mokes il possible to provide, uithout too much heat, sufficient liyht to germinate seed mitt develop plants In the proper size (or moving to the outdoor garden. As shown, tii^ Stoutmcycr hol-bcd Consists of a b )X. resting on n table *"i cr on legs, in which \rnys or Hals 1 filled with spliagmmi moss or ver- rr.iculilc are placed, wilh nn air apace conloininfT 3 heating unit beneath them, and fluorescent lamps atove. Two 40-watt Iluoi escenl tubc-s —cither blue tubes, or dayUght typu —with reflectors arc suspended a foot above the flat.*. They ore kept burning continuously. An air space above them prevents excessive heating. Below the flats is n space which is heated by a scaled healing unit which fits into an ordinary lighting outlet; or by nn infra-red or carbon filament lamp, or by two tungsten liunps connected in scries. An elcc trie healing coil may be used. A thermostat of the type used for poultry brooders controls the heat. Seeds are sown in the flats or I rays. For most vegetable nnd flov/- er plants the minimum temperature should be set at 65 degrees. Water may be supplied by using wicks lo draw it from pans below the flats; by setting an empty flower pot in Ihc center of each flat, into winch water may be poured to provide subirrignlion; or by watering the surface. The second method requires that the flats be lined with waterproof paper to hold the water; and the third requires thnt excess water be allowed to drain away. Enclosure of the hot-bed helps keep both heat and humidity even. There is no objection to mixing Ihc fluorescent light with daylight, and the unit may be used in a sun- parlor, and opened during the day to allow daylight to supplement the lamps. When vermlculitc is used to fill Ihc flats, or Irays, a layer of sphagnum moss passed through a sieve should be placed on lop, and the seed sown in this, and covered! with more moss. The sterile substance will prevent destruction of the seedlings by damping off and similar diseases. The indoor hot-bed not only saves the gardener from the discomfort of managing an outdoor bed in the cold weather, but insures the plants adequate light, and an even temperature. the management of the bed is learned, it will need attention only for occasional watering and ventilation.
