Capistrano Last Race For Longden LOS ANGELES (AP) - The jockey they call Grandpaw, Johnny Longden, says he will ride his last race Saturday. At 59, Longden has ridden 6,030 winners, including a triple- crown winner, Count Fleet, in 1943. His last race, he says, will be Saturday's ?125,000 San Juan Capistrano Handicap at Santa Anita. "Win, lose or draw, Saturday I'll hang 'era up," Longden said yesterday. He has been a jockey for 40 years. Longden said he has received an offer to become trainer for a prominent stable in Florida, but declined to elaborate. Smythe Protests Title Bout TORONTO (AP) - A director of the Maple Leaf Gardens quit today because the Cassius Clay-Ernie Terrell heavyweight title fight will be held in the building on March 29. Connie Smythe, 71-year old veteran of two World Wars, said he quit because the Garden management had put cash ahead of class. He has been connected with the Toronto club of the National Hockey League for many years and is one of the more widely known sportsmen of Canada. "A FIGHT that isn't good enough for Chicago or Montreal certainly isn't good enough for Maple Leaf Gardens," Smythe said. He added that he objects to the fight because of Clay's statements about U.S. involvement in Viet Nam. John Bassett, chairman of the board of the Gardens, said he refused to accept the resignation. He said it should be submitted before the whole board "where others with different views would have a chance to put their, case." But Smythe said he intends to make the resignation stick. Smythe added that "we've got no right being in the boxing business anyway. It helped to kill Jim Norris (former head of the defunct International Boxing Club and co-owner of Chicago Black Hawks, who died last month) and I don't want the same thing happened to any of my contemporaries." BASSETT said Smythe wired him Monday saying if the Gardens got the fight he would resign. He replied that the Gardens had entered into an agreement to stage the fight if it was approved by the Ontario Athletic Commission and could not break that agreement. Bassett said Clay's opinions about Viet Nam "could be no concern of ours." "Many athletes and many other men did not serve in the last war, but they had not been barred from the Gardens.'' "This was not our role -- we could not sit in' judgment on other people's motives," Bassett said. By ED JORDAN Citizen Staff Writer It took 16 years, but it was well worth the wait. When it came to track. Sal- pointe was dirt poor. The Lancer spikers practiced on grass, caliche, rocks and dirt and com- pe'ed at various sites in town. But now the Lancers can boast the best track and field facilities in Arizona. THE PLUSH structure, located east of the football stadium, has more gadgets than a bachelor's apartment. For examole, the $200,000-plus nlant features: double runways for broad jump and pole vault; wide 46-inch lanes as opposed to the standard 36-38: potentially fast track of a crushed brick and clay mixture; and a rubberized synthetic all-weather surface material. The last half of the broad jumo and pole vault runways consist of Tartan, an all-weather surface which offers plenty of spring in the final 10-15 yards. The broad jump and shot put rin? also has a Tartan surface. Another striking attraction is location of events. Regardless of which one of the 1,000 seats a fan fills, there is a complete view of all events. Facing the bleachers are the finish lines and pole vault pit. East of the pole vault area is the broad jump. The discus is located in the north corner and the broad jump and shot put in the south end. "THE ADVANTAGE of this all-weather Tartan is that it doesn't take any maintenance," says Salpointe track Coach Ed Lucz. "It will hold up for 20-40 years and you can't damage it. The spring in the surface will also cut injuries. "They say that it takes two to five years before a track is ready," adds Big Ed, "but this track is ready now." Speed is expected to be the big feature of the track, thanks to the two- inch mixture of crushed brick and clay. "We're also using Tartan in the shot ring and John Gleeson (Salpointe baseball coach) is using some below the rubber on the pitcher's mound. John hopes' to have a Tartan batter's box too. "We have plenty of outstanding facilities on this track," continues Ed, "but the bisgest feature is that we are not dictated by a football field. One advantage of building a track is that it eliminates sharpness of the turns. Our track is more rounded and it's banked to the maximum one inch per 10 feet." NOT ONLY is the new track expected to give Lucz' program a shot-in-the-arm. but also in the future. Lucz has organized a 10-team parochial junior high program with three triangular meets scheduled every Saturday morning. Another big feature is lighting. All told, the track will have 40 lights. Salpointe dedicated its track and field park this afternoon in a dual meet with Douglas and its big unveiling will take place Saturday night in a dual with Sunnyside. The Lancers have had great track performers in the past. And just think what Fernando Leon. Fred Reece and Terry DeJonghe could have done with this set-up! It took 16 years, but it was worth the wait. * * * ED-rrORIALS -- One of the soring's biggest losses will be that of Pueblo's outstanding track star John Douglas. Douglas, a 6-4 high jumper, 23-foot broad jumper and 50 second quartermiler, has decided to bypass his final season . ..
