It was a fast round with Maurlclo on the offensive, shooting rights and Ifefts to "VVatanabo's expressionless face. fierla bobbed continually, making Hede miss and robbing his punches of their dynamite. Jolts Serla Hedo straightened up the Filipino in the first part of the second and kept up a stream of punches to win the frame. Ho used short jolts to tho head and body In punishing Serla.

TJUDAPE8T, Aug. 27. — Losing •*-* money at u -Hungarian ruc.o track is a most refined and orderly business. You place your money on the wrong steed, then retire to a flower bedecked grandstand where you watch him finish anywhere from second to tenth, without offer- Ing him so much as one murmur of encouragement or disparagement. You don't clap your hands. You don't leap to your feet and scream "Come on, baby!" Or clamber up in your chair as you do In what wo who have been abroad a fow weeks refer to as "Tho States." At least you don't do theso things but once. One Comanche performance and tho Budapest boys and girls give you such a staring down that you follow their lead and watch the races, oven blanket finish onos, with tho Inscrutability of a Chinese mandarin. I learned my lesson in Hungarian racing manners at tho jockey club track In tills city. Unknowingly, I vlHlled tbo track on its biggest day of tbo year when the country's crack horses went to the post In "Sztls tuan-Dlj" which Is to say tho Stephens prize. The Stephens which Is at 1800 meters carries a purse of 25,000 pengoes and Is the Kentucky Derby of Hungary. The Jockey Club course here is tho finest I have ever seen and that goes for Agua Calientc, HIalcah, Belmont and Saratoga. Although placed well within the city limits, it covers 10 acres of ground and judging from its natural beauty was hewn from the heart of a forest. Great shade trees are everywhere and tho lawns and flowers would adorn any garden There are two tremendous grandstands. One is for the ordinary nice followers and the other, which con tains tho clubhouse and is magnlfl ccntly appointed, is the summer pa rado ground for social, military and diplomatic folk. Three Tracks Tho club lias not ono track, bu three. They parallel one another anil each Is better than two miles around Their surfaces are beautifully clippcc turf. The straightaway is tho las tblng in straightaways, being a mill Deputy Who Fined Tourists Is Ousted Find a quarter long, with tho first iimrtor mile bordered by magnificent rcos. The paddock Is much like that at Bclmont. Horses are paraded around inder trees and on Ht. Stephen's prize day, this natural show and sad- tlllns ring wns a grand sight with Its superbly gowned women, flamboy- intly clad officers, top-hatted gentle- nen, sleek thoroughbreds and flash- ng silks. Odd Jockeys The horses looked about tho same is ours, though maybo they aro not quite as largo. The Jockeys, however, were quite 'different in appearance. In tho first place, most of them seemed to bo men of 40 and upwards. 1 spotted a few pink-cheeked joys about the age who ride in America. And they were nil sixes and shapes. During tho saddling for ono race I saw Jockeys who ranged In height from better than six feet to well under flvo. Some were fat and pome thin. With my limited knowl-i edge of Hungarian ("goulash" Is the only word I've over mastered) I wasn't able to find out what system of handicapping woa used. There Is no tiresome parade to the post. Tho boys bring their mounts out on tho track and Immediately begin a gallop to tho starting point. I'luces Two lluclis I had 10 pengoes (about $2) on tho first race, and when tho horses camo In sight and I spotted my Beetlo up with tho leaders, I started shouting, waving my arms and begging him to come home in a hurry. With my first scream, the Hungarians around mo turned and gave mo looks which said so much better than words: "Please! We don't want that sort of thing here." So tho next race, I didn't make any hot. but just watched tho crowd. From the start of tho race, which Is announced by the ringing of an ovcrslBC dinner bell, until tho last horse had finished tho Buda> pest bettors sat In almost dead si lence. There was little talking and no cheering. Even when tho num bers went up after a close finish, there was no applause. I was just as much out of place with my yelling as a budapcst plunger with his tombstone silence would be at Jamaica or Tropical.

As a professional, Owens' earner Would bn cmlt-cl In 12 mouths at least, Paddock asserts. Tho former "foulest human," now newspaper business manager and sports rulumnlst hern, published his views as follows: "As a professional, Owens Is good Just so long as the memory of his achievements in tbo Olympic games IH fresh In tho people's minds, llo f.innnelnlril I'rein Lraird Wire) will havo a manager (perhaps several of them) and a publicity agent. "He will not bn adding to Ills laurels hut rather capitalizing on I hem. And In his ruse, It Is perfectly proper thine for him to do, More power lo him. Hut when he reuses to perform, hn simply stop* being 'news.' ll« cannot hist very long. Therefore Ills earning day* will soon be ended. "If, however, OWOIIB should stay In tho amateur ranks, ho would bo good as a 'llvo name' for at least another five years. Owens could write, speak over tho radio, act, and run all over tho world, making at least $20,000 a year and getting a training In business which would fit him to carry on after his amateur athletic day had ended. Presumably, none of his friends are considering what Owens might do for himself as an amateur. Th« Cool Way to CHICAGO $5735 Roundtrty Thti* fuet «n food lo oom • ad chtlr on.
