(UP) — Lounging in the tack room 1 at Jamaica between races, little Eddie Arcarn admitted today that he had received a bid from Main Chanel! Farm to ride one of Its big four In next week's Kentucky Derby— and indications were it would be Lord Boswell. I will fly to Keencland tomorrow to ride Lord Boswell in Thursday's Blue Grass Stakes and If'he goes good I would like to ride him In the derby." said (he little Jockey who needs one more victory to write derby riding history. be the fourth tor Eddie. New Yolk liandlcappcr John Campbell and Florida's chnrlcy McLennan have picked him as (he one to beat, and such aslute trainers as Bon Cah- ron' and Ivan Parkc have called him the best In the classy group of Maine Chance three-year-olds. If he Is, Arcaro will brine It out. And if the colt wins Ihc Blue Grass wllli Eddie in the saddle they'll be a lough team to teat V'hen the band plays "My O'.d Kentucky Home" on Derby Day. Dark-skinned haidboot from Eddie. New]X>il. i native Ky.. has won Ihc Jaunt for the Juleps Ihrce times. He scored with Lawrln in 1938, Whirlaway In 1011 nml Hoop, Jr., last year. That ties him with the ancient Isaac Murphy, triple winner of (lie gay nineties, and Earle Saude. Arcaro should have had a fouvtn In 1042. That was the year when. as top contract rider for Green- dee, Eddie chose Ucvll Diver over Shut Out and Wayne Wright brought Ihc Diver's stableinntu home in front. The Maine Chance four pose a similar and worse problem, because Mrs. Ellzal)cth (Ardcn) Graham's stable has a possible winner In either Lord Boswell, Kno^cdown, Colony Boy or Star Pilot. Eddie can't decide between Lord Boswell and Knockdown, the two he favors most. The problem, however, may not be left to him. "I don't know which one thr*i: want me to ride," he said, dropping oue of the numerous crank letters he receives in which the unknown writer wanted to borrow $2.000. "I understand they have several top riders lined up to ride their Pelican Hitting Downs Travelers Atlanta Wins Over Nashville; Memphis Ourscores Mobile ATLANTA, April Heavy slugging by during the first 10 23. CU.P,) — the Pelicans; days of the' iwd games last nlgiii, Chattanooga edging out Birmingham, 6 to 5, ami Memphis winning handily from Mobile, 7 to 2. The Lookout* had one big inning against the Barons that was enough, scoring five runs in the second off Fred Clemencc. Hardin Calhcy, meanwhile, was limiting Birmingham to six hits and pick- lug up hLs second straight victory of tlie season. Jim MoClurc held Mobile at bay easily with seven hits.

Pclc Beiser made four hits, driving in tiro nms with a double in the ••nth to tie the score. Relief Ktcher Hugh Casey, third Dodger •Kiundsman, was the victor. The Giants, going heavy on colts and they'll make the choice, Arcaro attded. "If we were contract riders, the oldest boy In |x>int of service would get his choice. This way, it's up to them." Eddie admitted l-hnl his selection to ride Lord Boswell In the Blue Grass Slakes Indicated they may over want him to be nbonrd the colt in the tterby. But it will have to show Arcaro plenty lo have him up ivlicn they run at Churchill Downs on May 1. "Sure. I'd like to have that record of riding four derby winners," lie smiled. "But you know there's more lo it than Just n record. You can't eat records." Which is what makes Arcaro une of the. greatest money riders of all time. "I wouldn't even go down there. 1 lust to ride in the derby if I didn't think I had n chance to win." said. "I don't want a stiff to ride just to say I rode in the derby. I want a horse with a real chance, or I won't take him as mv mount." Tile colt which worries Arcaro. as he contemplates ruling Lord Boswell in the Rose nun, is Knockdown. "That Knockdown is a bit;, tough, seasoned colt." he explained. "Thai's you need for thtit mile and a quarter. But we'll hnvc to see first what Lord Boswell shows." Lord Boswell. a "throw in" when Maine Chance bought his dam, may Canny, Newman Are Disqualified Meroney Awards Bout To Lawson and Harrel After Rough Session Referee Mike Meroney disqualified Billy Canny and Leo Newman, giving victory In last night's lag match at the American Lesion Arena to Buck Lawson nnd Henry Hanoi. Canny lived up to his reputation as a villain but lie discovered last night that even with Meroney you can "go too fur." Harrel nnd Canny won the toss of Ihc coin to start off the first full of the main event. Ilnrrcl Proved lo be fully as good as recommended. He was fast and thoroughly enjoyed the rough stuff. At one time in the first fall he had both Newman nnd Canny out of tlie ro|)cs. He tagged his partner, Lawson, at intervals to rest, up and after 10 minutes or so started Hi! rough with Newman ami Canny. In all it took Hand 15 minutes to pin both Canny and Newman. In th e second fall the tide of battle changed to the Canny-Newman side and things went from bad to worse for Lawson and Harrel. Newman got Lnwson's left ami numb he couldn't use It by beating It over the ring roircs. In 10 minutes Newman hnd pinned both Lawson and Harrcl. The third fall wns .the point where riot cleccnded to mayhem. Canny got Meroney down and roughed him up considerably. Then Newman raised Harrcl over his head nnd dropped him across Canny's outstretched knee. It was here Meroney became so "Infuriated" he rushed to Lawson and Harrcl's corner and raised their arms signifying victory for them. The preliminaries were much cleaner than the main event but equally as fast. Toward the end .of the first bont Harrcl had Newman almost out with flying tackles when suddenly Newman managed to get his fists up and let Harrel run into them and knock himself out. In ' the second preliminary 1 , Lawson look Canny in seven minutes with a body pin. Canny started Ihc choking and beating right away, Lawson, although groggy, goi in n couple of well placed punches and won the fall. place tion. Tlie Pelicans have looked like Ihe Yankees against Little Rock in pounding for extra bases Just at the right lime. Last night second baseman Vernon Thcolc and Pete Layden, cen- terfleldcr, hit homers to keep the Pels tied up with Little Rock, and then the sluggers came through to push a run across In the last half of the ninth to beat the Pels, 5 to 4. Thcolc had also hit a homer Sunday and Layden a triple. The timely hitting plus mediocre pitching has given New Orleans a, record of eight victories and two defeats to put the team one-half game ahead of Atlanta. After last night's win. Atlanta considered Itself the luckiest t*am of the league. The Crackers were oulhit, 12 to 7, but managed to wlii easily over Nashville, 6 to 2. Atlanta had also lucked out on Nashville in the second game Sunday, scoring six runs on only one hit. which coupled with last nights ] victory gave them a fortunate; Cleveland . split with the Vols. 1 Philadelphia Birmingham and Mobile, appar- j Chicago all nlpht fran^c 8 8 Baseball Standings SOUTHERN LEAOUi: W.
