PAGE SIX FHOpCIEfl Long Favorite of Corn Bell Buggy Racers Gain New Favor. , Harness racing, long (he prime sport of Hie corn bell, has gone Society, During those depression decades in the sport, when Die automobile, nnd the |>arl-n>uluels seemed cer tain to shunt It into limbo, the county fair, Itself struggling for existence, tuppoited the sulky. It was something like two aging cripples helping each other down the road. It is true that a number of millionaire* still slurk by the Grand Circuit and paid Ilio bills at the breeding farr/i. Such men as llic elder Wright of Calumet Fnnns, John L, Dodge, the Hcj- nolds of 'tobacco fume. Ihe Ilai- ilmans and one or two olhei kept the spoil, fiom dving on lirely. But .most .of (he wealthy were being drawn to the runners, and no one can deny that dark day, were upon the trotters. But the liaincss sport has weatheied the- stoim, badly buttered, of course, but still game. And despite the howls one still heais, theie aie lich people who find that, they still can afford expensive hobbies, i The young ilch me turning to the trotteis at least as rapidly ns they me going Into the running horse-game. Late conscriptions into the lalter are A. C. Boslwlck. ulio owned Male; his brother Pole, world famous nmnlcur rider; Alficd Gwjnne Vanderlillt, owner' of Discovery, nnd P. M. Alger, Jr., owner of Azucar. But the harness s,vrt can bonst of Billy Post, Dunbar . Boslwick, brother of A. C. and Pele, and Elbridge Gerry. All three are "olcd polo players, nnd nil three me alliacted to the sport by. the Ihnll of davlng Iheli own horses. No Weight Problem In Sulky Dunbai Bostwick is considered by mnny lo be n better rider than his moie famous 'brother nnd both play rt fast game of polo But even nmnlcur Jockeys hive to fncc the weight bogey wilh ill, Ihrcat of loss at health because of sliemious . reilucini! mcthdds ••'••• & Sulky diiveis need have little •woriy on that score, and therein lies the attraction of the spoil. ' Theie ts another ^loteiit factor young society debs can indulge In the sport ns well as can their husky escorts They cnn do so with a minimum of ink of changing sofl curves into mannish muscles Not Hint the sport doesn't leciunc stiength, but it will hardly inasculini/c the gnls as much as tennis or high huidllng. Moreover \\omen already have proved Iheh nbillty to handle the imnatinal gaiters Mrs. E. Roland Harrmmn iccently made two world lecords She drove the t\vo- 5'cai-old Parr to a record for \iornen dmcis nnd then gec-gecd lost year's champion : Greyhound to n recoid of 2017! for n mile. A prci ions record was made behind her husband's Highland Scott, a pacer, which she drove to a record of 1:50>S. Thnt gives her the feminine records for bolh tiottcrs and pacers. • • * It's a Family Sport The E Roland Harrimnns and the joung Dick Reynolds' offer a case in point. Both'young couples are exceptionally fond of the sprat and in each case husband and wife are cvtrcmely proficient nt dining Running racing has no paiallel, although Mrs C V Whitney is a skillful Jockey. ' ' And the Ke\ to the answer lies there. Cornelius Vandeibilt Whitney alwajs can own nnd race horses, and A.-c. Bostwick always can own, breed and train them, but weight will confine'their riding ability to the polo field Harness racing win glve t | lcra the ultimate In sports thrill just as H did m the da>s of the matinee circuits BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,) COURIER NEWS Appear Here Wilh Soft Ball Champs Ml.IffiON "Hook, Line ' And Sinker" By SPN MONDAY, AUGUST, 24, . 193G'I FOXYFOXX CUB Ruling Leaves Cleaners Half Game Behind, 'ighting For Lead.

Crimson Tobaccos Have Pair Of Sensational Hurling Aces The Crimson Conch Tobaccos of Toledo, o., world soft ball champions of 1935, will' bring wlmt is generally reputed lo b'e the finest hurling stalf in soltbnll here Wednesday night when they clash with the Memphis, Tent)., Coca Cola Bottlers. .Sox Walnwrlght has had a leading role in the two national championship li'hmiph.s of the Toledo club. • Walnwriglit, 44 years old, Is a star bowler and uses the same motion In pitching a sofl bull that he docs in 1 bowling. Wninwright disdains lo use trick, deliveries but snaps the bail away I In a hurry wilh no apparent wind-up. Sixteen years of throw- Ing the big ball has taught him where lo throw it and he picks the corners with precision. Tarnacki Is Workhorse 'Chel" Tarnacki, big 'slXrfoot, two-Inch 100-pound hurler of the Tobaccos, is Ihe workhorse varie- j ty of pllcher. He can pilch.sev- eral days in succession without any signs of weakening. He combines a trick delivery with his windup that makes his fast one doubly hard to touch. His drop ball comes In hard and ducks at lhe plate and he has one. of the few good fast hooks In Softball. Tarnacki won over 30 games for (lie Tobaccos In 1935. Tcddic Hill catches the offerings of Ihe Tobacco mound aces. He started as a third baseman but was shifted to his tnie spot behind the plate because of his ability to take abuse with a smile. He is a natural receiver and refuses lo use a mask. Hill is lead- olf hitter for the Tobaccos and often hits for extra bases. He batted over .300 last year, including G hits out of 18 trips to the plale In Ihe Chicago lo'irmiment when the Tobaccos were crowned champions. Ilotllcrs Have Triplet! In an effort to match the Tobaccos lhe Memphis Bottlm will have Smoke Triplett, "Flash Staln- biook and Andy Gunn lo hurl I heir best balk against the Toledo club.

Justus Kdrington. | According to the Times, there, has been some discussion as to whether Slim Lamb, the catfish' catcher, will be allowed to enter' the tourney, "because a catfish Is not a ranking member of the game fish family." On this point we disagree with the Times writer. The catfish isj "tops" as a game fish. Although, he may not be catalogued aloii" wilh the legitimate game fish a great many sportsmen In" this cciimlry are ready anil willing lo concede that he's a game fellow on a line and will generally put up a better fight limn the blue bloods. A catfish ought to rank with j;amc fish, and does In'some states. Any man who Ls known as a catfish catcher certainly ought to be accorded the privilege of competing in .any company.
