Kayak II Faces Busy Campaign Santa Anita Winner To Enter Eastern Races LOS ANGELES. HV-Kayak ITs brilliant victory in the $100,000 Santa Anita handicap prefaced today an eastern campaign by the 4-year-old Argentine runner that may make new turf history Charles S Howard, who bought Kayak at the bargain price of $7,600 from his son, Lin, and Bing Crosby two years ago, has already named him for the Metropolitan handicap and Suburban at Belmont, the Dixie handicap at Pimlico and the $50,000 Massa chusetts handicap at Boston next summer. The main division of the Howard stable will be shipped east some time after the Santa Anita meeting closes with the $25,000 San Juan Capistrano handicap Saturday and a charity-dedicated program Monday. But the lame Seabiscuit, still Howard's pride and Joy, will stay in Southern California to be pointed for the $50,000 Gold cup handicap at HoUywood Park in the summer. His owner hopes he wiU better Sun Beau's money-winning record, of which he is $36,000 shy. It was lucky lightning striking twice in the same place that Howard, robbed of Seabiscuit for Santa Anita's "hundred grand," should have bobbed up with Kayak, had any snap in his swing and all were fooled by the easiest kind of pitches."

Just why he decided to vacate after 15 years of directing the once powerful Pitt Panthers was not disclosed Immediately but It was evident turbulent history of atheltics at the school precipitated his action. This pelehrated builder of great grid Juggernauts and maker of ail-Americans had only to say he submitted' his resignation, effec tive at once, and pending a huddle with Chancellor John G Bowman "I do not care to 6ay anything more." The university in all probabil ity wUl not stand in Sutherland's way. Bowman said athletic au. thorities might act today on Jock's request for release from an agreement in his contract calling for two years notice before leaving Pitt. Often rumored, Sutherland's move was not unexpected but there has been no indications of his future plans. Latest coaching report has him going to Mississippi State at an annual salary figure pf $13,5QQ. There Is a possibility of strong attachment for his alma mater keeping him at Pitt. An associate said "Money ia not a factor in the matter" and that he might remain on the faculty. It is traditional for the Panthers to hire only graduates on the grid staff although resignation of four assistants since close of the 1938 campaign left only a like number with limited experience not ranked as possibilities for Sutherland's job. Among the many linked with the place are Charley Bowser, former first assistant to Sutherland; Tommy Davies, suocessfuj head coach of Scranton university the past two years: Bill Kern of Carnegie Tech and Andy Gustafson, backfield boss at Dartmouth. Whether they could be landed Is another story. . . .

(flWTnere still la another week of competition maybe more in some quarters to be run off before the list of 1939 champions can be completed. For a while it looked as if last Saturday would see the windup in practically all the major conferences, but upsets begn piling in and as a result only six titles have been decided In 11 major circuits. The six winners came by their crowns this way: Southern conference: Clemson won title tournament after barely slipping in with, a ,500 average. Southeastern conference: Kentucky, pre - season favorite, trounced Mississippi, Louisiana State and Tennessee to win tournament honors, Big Ten: Ohio State came on strong at finish, beating Michigan and Purdue in final week while same teams handed Indiana a pair of knockout blows, Michigan winning 53-45 in the deciding tilt Saturday. Southwest conference: Texas routed Texas A and M, 66-32, Thursday to clinch title. Pacific coast conference, northern division: Oregon trounced Washington's second-place team twice, 39-26 and 54-53, In deciding series, The simplest decision still to be reached is the California-Southern California duel in toe southern division of the coast confer ence. They wound up m a tie when USC beat UCLA twice last week while Stanford, 1938 champion, broke even with California, They'll have a playoff, but the dates haven't been set. The Big Six and Missouri valley races may be decided tonight but there's a good chance both will wind up in ties. Missouri took the Big 8ix lead last week with a decisive victory evey Kansas. But Oklahoma remained In the running by beating Nebraska and can catch the Tigers by conquering Kansas state in the finale. . , Hits and Misses 'Sno use Pickles, the targets sure did suffer Sunday.

L j Matlock, our new member engaged In a friendly bout with the secretary at singles and doubles and L L Hamilton and W E Coney, two visitors, also shot some 18 yard targets. The results were 22 doubles out of 12 pair for Bush and 18 for Matlock. Singles scores were Bush 24. Matlock 83, Hamilton 16, Coney 15. Bush also broke 22 from 22 yard. ' H O Hill was a visitor with his good wife to see his beys do their stuff but arrived too late. He informed us that the boys came by their love of guns honestly and we are hoping we can get Hill, sr, to try them out. Judge May Walker was searching earnestly for a perfect score but lost it by three. All his misses were left hand targets but he pulverized the peg 6's in fine style. Paul Harrison, another visitor wh has not shot for too long, turned in scores of 18 and 30. He promised to return on each of his trips to the city. Will do better next time. As usual E.Culpepper was smashing 'em quick and sudden. He broke a 20 in regular event and 21 In the match with Ed Hill. Ed spotted him 2 but Ellis lost both of . his seventh birds, the easiest on the ground, and one dou-" ble. Our friend Kirby was out and shot at 12. Just to warm his gun. He broke 6. The championship race goes merrily on and is evening up very nicely. Just now It seems to Me between Walker. Culpepper and Hill. The standings will be pub lished each month and If some of the shooters continue to Improve, the race will be close. Shooting each Sunday at S:S0 and visitors axe always welcoma.
