The score was not important. What really pleased the fans who s«t in the bleachers while the Chicks went through an hour and 20 min- TODAY'S SrOKT PARADE Pericles Seems Ready To Prove His Owner Didn't Pick Lemon BY OSCAR FRAI.KV United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, March 22. (UP) — Tlie barns were quiet and the dust hung heavy at sleepy Belmont Park today but there was jubilation In the stalls of William Hells, the Golden Greek, because Pericles is Just about ready to drop that $CO,000 "Lemon" tag. Pericles and his proud owner have •waited two dreary years for a chance to prove Ihc handsome ct>lt was worth that young fortune. But always something happened and Pericles did nothing except beautify the barn, champing the bit Impa- ufee session of game scrimmage without a rest was the fad that the Chick backs arc readily taking to Ox' T formation and seem to be ready to begin their comeback in the Big 16 conference next fall. Saturday's session convinced oo- tervers that the first week's work of Godwin. Bynum and Mosley has borne fruit and that the Chicks, while 'they are a long, long way 'from the championship trail they traveled In 1940 and 1941, are not going to be pushed around with Impunity by other league members. The blocking and tackling was as to be expected at tills stage, but Ihc boys' are learning rapidly and by | the,.time spring drills close Friday this phase of the game should be jreitly improved. The work of several Chicks was reassuring. Dan Caldwell ran the quarterback slpt for white squad a great part 'of th»itime and looked good. In the Maroon backfleld diminutive Harold Traylor scampered all .over the place and gave notice that he will play a lot of football for,the Chicks next autumn. Jimmy Stafford's work at end for the Maroons must have brought Joy to the heart of Coach Godwin and BUly Bob Elliott at a guard position for the Whites wa's-Impresslvi. Fullback Berry Allen rammed Across the first touchdown for the White squad, scoring on a 15- yard run after the Whites had worked the ball Into scoring territory. The scond touchdown came after Harrison recovered a' fumbled lateral on the 20 yard line. Dm Caldweir passing to Dick Shanks for; a score. A few minutes later CaldweV JM!»ih % put the Whites in scoring Position'when he fired a pass to Freeman Jernigan 35 yards for a ilrst down on the Maroon 15. Berry Ajlen smacked the 1 line for firsi down, on th e five and Harrison t»n the'end for the touchdown. The Maroon squad came back mrith a drive, Jack Elliott pnsslnf to Stafford for a 25-yard gain am first down on the 15. Shanks turn •d the Maroon threat, however ipheh he recovered a fumble on the 1» yard line. The .Whites struck back for their ftoal score when R 1 . A. Friend passed 20 yards to - Stanley Hood TrtiO'topk the ball on the dead run and raced another 40 yards for the toUchdown, tiently through the two-year-old and three-year-old seasons In which he never went to Ihc post. There were many reasons why the proud son of Blenheim Il-Ilfsk never got his shot at the barrier. One of the best looking pieces ot horse flesh around the tracks, his body at first was too heavy for his slim legs. Then he picked up a nail and another time grabbed himself while breezing, so damaging hoof that it had to be cut away and n new hoof grown. The laugh during that 1943 season was on Hells, a multi-millionaire New Orleans oil man who hey blow liuoSci and Saddles for hat one.

That, didn't ven get the Golden Greek off the •look for 1945—and Pericles still waited Inconsolabty in the barn. With his spread branching out, Hells this winter put one of his racing strings In the hands of Frank Kcarns. one-time trainer, for Woolford Farms. That string Included Pericles and Kcarns slnrled putting the four-year-old through Ills pttces at the Hells Farm In Jobslown, N. J. They weren't too certain whether the handsgmc colt ever would reach the starting gate but Hells, who fusses over the colt as If ho wns a triple crown winner, insisted thai his baby be given another'chance.
