Ky., April 29 UP) A tow-headed boy. neatly dress ed In a riding habit, lolled outside one of Churchill Down's green- painted barns, occasionally his eyes wandered over to a nearby paddock where another boy. not so neatly attired, was cooling out a horse. Scores of men walked past, paying little or no heed to the boy, except to wish him Good morn ing." The horse attracted even less attention as he walked round and round the small circle, almost like a robot. Suddenly a broad smile broke on the boy's countenance as If he was deciding. Then with a sigh of contentment, he settled back Into his chair with an air "hat said-all's risrht with the world. And content he might well be for the boy was Wayne Wright; the horse. J. E.

Market St. Phone 2255 (The Live Wire) CBy Tha Associated Press) Atlanta's Crackers enjoyed a two-and-a-half game lead over the Southern Association field today after having quelled a threatened Volunteer uprising. The champions blasted Nashville, 9 to 6, yesterday to avenge a Monday shutout and thereby gained a half game on the New Orleans Pelicans who were rained out of their tilt with Memphis. Little Rock protected third place by handing Birmingham another dose of fine pitching to win 8 to 1. Chattanooga edged into fourth position ahead of Nashville by nicking Knoxville, 8 to 5. With dimunitive Buster Chatham stealing the fence busting spotlight with two homers, the Crackers blasted their way to an easy victory. Each team collected 12 hits but Atlanta made seven of theirs in the fifth, scoring seven luns before an out was made. Ahearn held the home team fairly well in hand until the . big blowoff and Schmidt held the Vols to a single unearned run until after his teammates had run up a 9-1 lead. He weakened after that and had to be relieved in the ninth but still received credit for his fourth win. Kola Sharpe made the Birmingham fans suffer by holding the Barons to three hits. The dose was particularly bitter coming on the heels of a two-hitter pitcnea by Rogers Monday. The Travelers pounded away at Sims. finally drivinsr him from the hill in the eighth with a four-run assault. The winners collected 12 hits with Deal and Liberto getting three and two, respectively. Knoxville's Bill Beckman seem ed to have a ball game pretty well in hand as he went into the eighth with the Smokies leading 3-2. His victory prospects were blasted in short order, however, as the Look outs put together five hits and two walks for six runs. Knoxville's ninth-inning rally netted two runs but was choked off by Perkins. Today's games and probable pitchers: Nashville (Davis) at Atlanta (Thomas). Chattanooga (Messenger) at Knoxville (Scott). Memphis (Nelson) at New Or leans (Zuber). Litle Rock (Brazle) at Birm ingham (Coombs). SOFT-BALL PLANS ARE MADE AT HENDERSON HENDERSON.

April 29 (JP) FliBt Rhem, veteran of the baseball mound, today contemplated an appftal to Kennesaw M. Landis, the game's highest authority, because he ays the Nashville club values him too highly. Tie season was less than two weeks old when Rhem, formerly a star in the big leagues, was suspended and fined $100 for breaking; training rules in Chattanooga. Manager Lance Richbourg said Rhim would never plav another garte as long as he was in the saddle. The club, Rhem said, told him to tiake a trade for himself. '? called up Rogers Hornsby (Mtnager of the St Louis Browns) and he said he was not interested in me at the price they asked for me." . Rhem said Nashville officials wanted ?1,000 or players valued at that figure for him. 'Then I called Burleigh Grimes t Louisville and when he found out what it would cost to buy my release ne wouldn't pay it. "They could have swapped me to the St. Louis Browns, but they asked for either Burns or Bottom-ley. "So I believe I will see Landis about. I am doing nothing and nobody is paying me anything." Not until the end of the 16th century did the cult of pillar saints disappear. Teachers Have you pupils who are failing because of eyestrain?
