MAR-KELL m m watch MIAMI, Jan. 22. W The five year-old Mar-Kell, top money winner for the Calumet Farm now that mighty Whirlaway has been retired, brought home a $4,090 prize Saturday with a smart triumph In Hialeah Park's Evening Handicap. Six other fair-to-good fillies and mares yielded to the heavily-loaded and heavily-backed champion mare of 1943 in a seven-furlong dash before one of the largest crowds of the winter season.' Billy Thompson had the bay thoroughbred out in front by a length and a half at the finish, and was pulling away from the field. Despite. a burden of 126 pounds and a relatively-soft track, Mar-Kell went the distance in one minute, 26 seconds 3 35 seconds off the course record. The Woolford Farm entry of Silvestra and Pig Tails took second and third, respectively. Well-liked by the free-betting throng, Mar-Kell returned $4.70 for $2 to win, $2.80 to place and $2.60 to show. Silvestra and Pig Tails, hooked together in the pari-mutuel pool, paid $2.40 to place and $2.50 to show. Trainer Ben Jones sent Mar-Kell to the post for the first time since October, but he had her in the pink. She was rated along in a contending position until the far turn was reached, then was taken to the outside and came home in a tremendous stretch drive. Silvestra, enjoying a 14-pound pull in the weights, was kept up all the way, and was easily the class of the rest of the field. Pig Tails, carrying 110 pounds, was moving fast at the finish. Roman Sox showed early speed, but couldn't stand the pace. For the first time this winter, a 100 to 1 shot scored at Miami when Clyde Tolson, G. R. Watkins' former stakes performer, surprised a big field in a high-class claiming race. The prices across the board were $203.80, $99 and $32.50. All of Hialeah's profits for the day were turned over to the Dade County War Chest, the local cen tral charity drive. The official attendance was 11 202. and the betting for the day totaled $807,611, high for the season. Woolford Farm's Adulator, win' ner of the Hialeah Inaugural but beaten last week in the Palm Beach Handicap, came back to take the secondary feature Saturday the 53.000 beminole Handicap. Ridden by Ted Atkinson,- Adula tor went the seven furlongs in one minute, 25 45 seconds to whip Eurasian by two lengths and Poach er by another head. Adulator paid $7.10, $3.30 and $2.30 across the board. Eurasian was $3.90 to place and $2.70 to vshow, and Poacher's show price was BALL CLUBS CHANGE NEW YORK, Jan. 22. W Uncle Sam can be certain that one class of athletes the major league baseball players will have their income tax problems all settled by March 15, the day of payment and the almost-universal choice for the opening day of spring training. It will be the second cold-weather ordeal for the athletes above the Eastman-Landis line, established a year ago as means of curtailing travel, and the 16 clubs have made only three changes from the sites picked a year ago. The Philadelphia Phillies, owned this year by Robert M. Carpenter, will train this time in the young socialite's home-town of Wilmington, Del. The Athletics will ship their belongings to Frederick, Md., and the New York Yankees have picked Atlantic City in preference to Asbury Park, N. J. Indiana, which in years past has built a reputation in college football and basketball, again is host to the most teams. Players from three teams in the National loop and three in the American will sweat off their surplus weight in the Hoosier State, the Chicago Cubs and White Sox establishing a combined base of 'operations at French Lick. Cincinnati returns to Bloomington, Cleveland to Lafayette, Detroit to Evans-ville and Pittsburgh to Muncie. The polar bear titles remain with the two Boston entries, the Braves having re-engaged the facilities of the Choate School at Wallingford, Conn., and the Red Sox limbering up in Tufts cage at Medford, Mass. The latter club opens its drills late In February and then moves to Baltimore for out-of-door work. Brooklyn also has a double base, planning its outdoor work for Bear Mountain, N. Y., and the huge fieldhouse of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point if it proves too frosty in the open. Instead of picking up their first sunburns in St. Petersburg, the St. Louis Cardinals will creak through tneir drills at Cairo, 111., and the Browns at Cape Girardeau, Mo. Washington spurted to second place after preparing for the 1943 campaign in College Park, Md., and the Senators are trying their luck in the same spot a second time. Golf Match Slated Eight-man teams representing the Old Guard Society and Morrison Field . will meet today at the Palm Beach Golf Club in a foursomes competition starting at 2 p. m. ' SCOREKEEPER KEPT BUSY YANKEETOWN, Ind., Jan. 22. () There wasn't any rough stuff in the Yankeetown - Folsomville High School basketball game last night the home team was too busy poppipg in baskets from the field. The Yanks scored 131 points a new season record on 65 field goals and one free throw on Fol-somville's only foul. The Yanks' best previous score was 121 points against the Selvin (Ind.) Preps. COPS HIALEAH FEATURE r, Caliber Of Eastern Cagers Disappoints By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK, Jan. 22. Oliver E. Kuechle's comment on college basketball at Madison Square Garden is typical of that of anybody seeing it for the first time. Oliver Kuechle, splendid college sports writer of The Milwaukee Journal, catches a doubleheader featuring Rhode Island State and Brooklyn St. Johns. Seeing the Little Rhodies, he wonders how they average 92 points a game in eight starts, even if they play nothing but kid teams. Frank Keaney's Rams average 153 pounds in weight and 3 feet 10 inches in height and Kuechle is perfectly correct when he savs that only one of them, Ernie Calverly, could make a first-flight Big Ten squad. Calverly, who gets 24 points against St. John's and 303 in 11 games, stands 5 feet 10 and would have to have lead in his shoes to come in at more than 140 pounds. He is the spittin' image of the undernourished son of the librarian, but Kuechle gives you this description of him: "Calverly is a honey with a fine eye. speed, a nifty body fake that reminds me of Wisconsin Johnny Kotz's hand fake, and ability to team with others." But except for Calverly, Rhode Island doesn't show Kuechle a thing. What a team like the Illinois Whiz Kids of last winter or Northwestern's of this season would do to a combination like Rhode Island's 90-point wonders would be sad to behold, he remarks. Kuechle finds that under the influence of old professional stars like Nat Holman and Joe Lapchick, teams of the New York metropoli tan area frequently pass long. "They think nothing of a half floor length pass, or one even long er, to bring the ball in from out-of-bounds," he relates. "Some of them pass blind occasionally. And in both cases they do not infrequently lose possession because of wild and inaccurate passing. "Defense play in the Garden is not nearly as tight as it is in the midwest. It's man to man or zone with only little of the shifting we take for granted, and the men on some teams return down the floor rather slowly. I saw more 'sleepers' in the four games I've been to than I generally see in an entire Big Ten season. "The boys are excellent dribblers and good shots, but they do not drive nearly as hard down scor- RACE RESULTS - ENTRIES HIALEAH PARK Weather cfcar, track fust. Firt.ST CI.; 4 y. o. up; 1 316 mi.

They call 'em close at the Garden." But Kuochle admits that the middle west can learn something from Promoter Ned Irish and the Garden in the staging of the show. Irish made New York basketball conscious. Substitutions are carefully announced, patrons are kept posted on the scores of other games, etc. A turnout of 18,000 is nothing out of the ordinary.' New York may not have Big Ten. Eastern League and class teams of other major circuits but it at least presents the game on a big-time basis. HIALEAH PARK Weather clear, track fast: post, 2:30 pm.

Women's Golf Meet Dates Not Changed Despite a conflict; with a tournament in Orlando, the annual Women's Championship of Palm Beach golf tournament will be played on the dates originally scheduled Feb. 7-10, it was announced Saturday. The Orlando tournament will be a mixed foursomes event, and some of the leading feminine golfers who usually play h?re have been invited there.
