Aug. i8. —Suckers •*-* must look the name tho world over. There must be xomuthlng nboiit n true chump which makes him as distinguishable In Budapest as In Chicago. Otherwise, how did n racetrack tout know enough to run straight to my side two minutes after I passed through tho gales of the Hungarian Jockey Club at Budapest? There were hundreds of other race-goers all about but that tout, with a look In hla face that only his breed wears, came swiftly und unerringly to my wide. H« had spotted a sucker and was Just about to make him his. It didn't take him long. Vivo nilnuteH after being colltird, I WIIH HtamlliiK before the "twenty npHRuJr" window playing the equivalent of )4 Niniick on the nose of an article named llozomimy, tho Second. My presence In front of that window, tuiil by my «!<le, cnme clime to proving that I inn the all-time free- Stylo sucker. Let me, explain my OJuct Hiatus as I Mood there shoving money across (he hoard. I was a stranger In a strange land. 1 didn't Npoak one word of lliuigurlan, hail never been to a Hungarian race- truck nnd didn't know whether tho race I wan butting on was 10 yards or 10 mlleH, on tho flat or over ditches. The system of. beting was ! totally Mrnngo to me. The cashier ' could have (,-lven me u ticket good j for one free elevator ride and I | wouldn't have known the difference. lOven if Koxomuny the Second won my chances of knowing about his victory were nllm. And even If he did, and I foutu! out about It, whore would I take my ticket to be cashed? I bad no Idea of the odds on my selection and 1 knew nlwolutoly nothing about hlw past performances. For oil I knew ho might be n milk hor««.' in n field of stake runners. In Hliort I represented mother Ignorance as I Htood there, cash In hand. The fact that my tout was able to maneuver me there so quickly was no credit to my basic wit content, lie spoke no English and his features, while plentiful, wore a bit short of being informative'. He backed up his gesticulating by point- Ing to paragraphs of my program but the writing was as unintelligible to me as hieroglyphics written in pig Latin. The paragraphs undoubtedly were pregnant with inclining but I'll copy a few lines and let you see for yourself why they left m« cold. Hen; Is one hutch of writing ho was particularly enthused about: "A/, otodlknek veKgett enie- slg hell vl.stizamenni, hogy mecbli- liato tmnponfot liaphiihsunli, uiltl- tan elol Kzerrniidnl e» Ira, nnl Ic- fcln jol futo ma jdneni kellctt do e7. e/wili mlnfahogy nyertn forma- jatol jutnl do liogy Icgjobb." It looked even worse thnn that In tho paragraph for my typewriter hasn't th« necessary gadgets to put all the little swallows, sparrows flying flxh, flotsam, jetsam and gen cral debris over the letters that Hungarians do. I finally rid myself of the tout—b> tho stern measure of giving him a fistful of pengoes and fillers—and went irto see llozomany tho second run his race. That name was given him by doting parents for he was no where near second at the finish. Ho was about seventh after having been held off tho pace as my old friend Paul lllrtcnsteln of tho Chicago Dally News would say for too long a time. Hungarian IlcttiiiR Toutless I went about and made a study of Hungarian betting by myself, netting M of two kinds—parl- mutuel and bookmakers. I won't say how the parl-mutuels work over here, but the bookies aro the same. They aro placed off under a shed and each has his own platform and stool. I patronized one whoso card read thusly: "Klopfer .leno—Bookmekcr Fogad- si Irudtijii. Kloklroduk; Zuglo BoMr.y Decline Invitation for a Week's Stay in N. Y. at No Expense (A undated I'reif Leaned WlreJ ABOARD S. S. President noose- •'••velt, en Route, to New York, Aug. 28. — The main sqimd of 239 American Olympic athletes, of.fl- lals nnd coaches decided today to pass up New York's Invitation to stay over a week after Its arrival tonight for a civic reception. nut there's no indication they will pass up the opening for a big family scrap some time during the winter. The Olympic committee regretfully declined the city's invitation to hold over tho team, at New York's expense, until the Manhattan arrives with another batch of athletes next Thursday. A big reception with a parade up Broadway and a gathering of tho entire Olympic team at Randall's Island had been planned. Tho committee expressed willingness to meet- the mayor's reception committee at quarantine, where the ship Is due at 6 p. m, (eastern standard time) tonight. It was pointed out, however, that many athletes are obliged to leave Immediately for their schools or Work and as a Substitute It was suggested tho possibility of a reception on tho dock before tho team disbands tomorrow. Meantime the outspoken comments of neveral crltlrs have pointed definitely >to an internal battle In' the Olympic organliation. It's almost certain the Eleanor Holm .larrett case and the dropping of two Jewish sprinters, Sam Stoller and Marty Glirkman, from the 100-meter relay team, will be thrashed out among the officials. Likewise the intormlttent warfaro between college leaders and A. A. U. officials for control of tho Olympic organization likely will be re newed. Masters Has Say Alfred Masters, Stanford assistant track and field manager, Indicated this by some pointed comments on the relations of Olympic officials and athletes. "AVhcn mistakes In managemen* nnd handling of athletes are repeated with such persistence as was manl- festad on this trip, tho time has ar. rived to face tho facts and reorgan. Ize," ho said. "I have many friends among the Olympic leaders and do not question their Integrity, but I have frankly told them I question their Judgment on several Important points. Afier Profits "The official anxiety to get the percentage of proflta wherever possible Is short sighted and only leads to such Incidents as Jesso Owens' abrupt return home. Personally I think Owens did the right thing." Blasts from the boxing team arc expected to be directed toward the officiating at the games. Roy IJavls, team manager, said: "If boxing officiating had been as efficiently and completely controllei by the sponsoring nations as in thi case of track and field, the Unlte< States would have had four Olympic boxing champions. It's hard to be Hove anyone affiliated with amateur boxing could be so dumb as some 01 the decisions Indicated." SANTA MONICA TK.VNIS SANTA MONICA. AUK. -S. (A. P.)> akter sixteen. Tol. 2-97154.

Momentum Increases for Grimm's Champions of National By LESLIE AVERT (Vnlttd 1'rett Leaned Wlrt) TVTEW YORK, Aug. 28. — The •^ Giants are up nnd the Cardinals are down—but what itbotit the Cuba? Little has been said about Charley Grimm's Chicago National League champs. Tied with the Cards for second place, three games beneath the ' Giants, the Chicago Cubs have been quietly gathering momentum for another stretch drive such da last year's 21-gamo record-breaking winning etreak that carried thorn Into tho world series. Orlmm's clouters have won their latest five. In that quintet of victories, Cub hurlers hava gone tho distance in each case, allowing a total of only seven runs. Koy Henshaw pitched against the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday and tho 25-year-old southpaw gave, up only six hits an tho Cuba won, 1 to p. The Giants, who wore gunning for their fifteenth consecutive win, were rained out In Cincinnati, and in tho only other National League game played, tho Pittsburgh Pirates beat Van Mungo and tho Brooklyn Dodgers, 6 to 3. Sterling Performances Throe sterling pitching performances wore, turned In by the Ainfcrl- can League hurlers. The best of all was thq two-hitter by 18-year-old Hundall Gumpert, who In his second major league start for the Philadelphia Athletics defeated the Chicago White Sox, 6 to 2. Hut Three Safeties Johnny Broaca of New York allowed but three safeties as the St. Louis Browns were sent down to a 7-to-l defeat, and Tommy Bridges of Detroit pitched four-hit ball to win from Boston, 4 to 2. Tho other game was a Blugfest with each toam using four hurlers. Cleveland gained tho long 1 end of a 10-to-9 decision over Washington In 10 Innings. OIL'S NOT KIOHT ROC-HESTER, N. Y.. Aug. 28. (A.
