INSURANCE BONDS ' MASON CITY lOAMX INVESTMENTS TIME, TIDE ARE FOES OF WORLD'S SWIFTEST RACER Greyhound to Trot on Daytona Beach After New Mile Record By HENRY McLEMORE United Press Staff Correspondent DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. U.R-- Time and tide wait for no man, and that goes for horses, too. The time for my vacation to end came just at the time the tide was right for Greyhound, world's greatest trotter, to test the sands o£ Daytona Beach as a track for a try at the world's straightaway record. So the two of us met there on the beach. Greyhound in the same old coat he was wearing when I last saw him in Goshen a few years ago, and 1 in the same old coat I wore to that running of the Hambletonian. It was nice to see Greyhound again after four years. He is the only thing I have seen after four years who didn't look me over carefully and say: "My, you've put on a lot o£ weight, haven't you?" Greyhound paid no attention to my 180 pounds nor I to his 960. * * * TO NOTHING . . . BUT SEA In fact, Greyhound paid little attention to anything except the ocean. He had the same look on his face that Balboa must have had when he suddenly stumbled on to the Pacific. Kentucky born and Indiana raised, the seven yeai old trotter made it plain that the Wabash by moonlight and the smell of new mown hay had not prepared him for the booming of waves and the shrieking of sea gulls. It was with much reluctance that Greyhound pulled his racing sulky and driver, Sep Palin, out on the beach. During all his workouts down the beach he kept one eye suspiciously cast toward the ocean, and kept swinging toward the dunes, away from the waves. * O S Palin, who has driven Greyhound to all his records, believes that the big fellow can do a mile in 1:50 or better oil the straightaway, and he feels that when the horse becomes accustomed to the marine track the beach is the place for him to do it. Greyhound, said by all the experts to be the greatest trotter ever in harness, has done a mile in 1:55 1-5, and that on a mile track with turns. Palin figures the curves cost him five secondst-- --:-^-'~ .-.-. · · A lot of. horse, ; Greyhound. Purchased by E. J. Baker, heir of "bet a million" gates, for §900 as a yearling, he has done things that few believed possible for a trotter to accomplish. Blessed with a magnificent and loose motion, and a great stride (he covers bettei than 32 feet at one stride when going all out) he has been clocked in 12 and Vi seconds for an eighth of a mile, which is running horse time, and good running horse time, too. He is the only harness horse ever to do a mile in under 2:01 1 /{. on a half mile track. Grev- hound whipped around the bends in 1:59-%. * * o STAMINA OF ELEPHANT Speed isn't all that is packed in his shiny grey coat, either. He has the stamina of a circus elephant. It is not unusual for him to be worked six or seven miles before an important race. He likes that sort of marathon warm-up to get loosened and be ready to turn on the speed. Gentle as a child's pony, tiie big gelding is a stable pet. Only one thing really upsets him, and that is to be refused an orsnge the first thing in the morning. He is usually fed one before he starts eating the rather unappetizing things on which horses breakfast. My, it's great to get back to work again! I hate vacations-especially when they're only a week long. 7039, By Uniltd jTrai) Silver Grey Builds Eight-Game Margin ALGONA--Silver Grey kept the lead in the Kossuth bowling league at the end of its 26th week, by an eight game margin.

Richard Hough of Princeton swam the 200-yard breast stroke race m 2:22 to better the previous world. American, and collegiate record held by Jack Kasley of Michigan. Kasley, who set hie mark of. 2:22.5 in 193S, was a spectator at Hough's record-breaking race Saturday. Hough swam the first 25 yards under water and finished the eight-lap race with long, powerful strokes that swept him across the finish line more than a second ahead of John Higgins, Ohio State, who finished second. Justin Callahan, Columbia, was third George Haldeman, Iowa State' fourth, and John Haigh, Michigan' fifth. Piling up points in the freestyle races, Michigan swimmers easily maintained their collegiate supremacy. Michigan scored 65 points to 58 for the second-place Ohio State team.

FENSKE TOPS MILE VETERAN Wisconsin Runner May Be on Way to Take Over First Ranking CHICAGO, IU.P.)--Charley Fenske of Wisconsin may become the nation's best miler even before Glenn Cunningham is ready to hang up his spikes. They used to tell Charley he couldn't beat Glenn, but in the famed bankers' mile of Saturday night's Chicago relays, the slim Wisconsin star ran Cunningham into the ground for the second straight time. lie came from behind after the veteran Kansan had made his move and established himself as definite Olympic material in the last bisr meet of the indoor season. The time was 4:12.8. Both Fenske and Earle Meadows, Olympic pole vault champion from Southern California, gave scouts for the U. S. team plenty to look at. Meadows added a new world indoor record of 14 feet, SVt inches to his outdoor mark of 14 feet, 11 inches. As usual Allan Tolmich of Detroit was invincible in the short hurdle races. He set a new world record of 5.1 seconds for the 40 yard high?, tied his own world mark of 6.2 seconds for the 50 yard highs and tied his own record of T.3 seconds for the 60 j-ard high hurdle race. His three victories easily provided the night's best performance. Sports Calendar Monday--Bowling. City leafrec Tuesday--Bowling. City league. Table tennis. cntri« close, y. M. C. A. city tournament.

TOP SQUADS SET FOR LAST STEPS INTO FINAL PLAY Detroit, Boston Lead Favorite List Near Close of Contests NEW YORK, (U.PJ--The ice- hockey world series--the Stanley cup playoffs--was narrowed to four teams Monday and that's stretching the imagination to include the New York Rangers, who would have to lick the mighty Boston Bruins four straight to iurvivc. While Detroit was eliminating Montreal in their best-of-lhree series Sunday night the Bruins were handing the Rangers their third straight setback in their besl-of-seven tussle which sends the winner to the final. After needing overtime sessions to take the first two games from the hard-fighting Hangers, the Bruins put the crusher on to win 4 to 1 before a record crowd of 16,981 in Boston. Bruins Grab Lead The Bruins took the lead on Gordon Pottinger's first period tally. Milt Schmidt gave Boston its second goal at the beginning of the second period, which was more than half spent when Babe Pratt counted the Rangers' only goal. Schmidt tallied again in the third, and Bill Cowley's final goal made the decision extra conclusive. With their regular center, Dave Kerr, who was injured in the first game, back in the nets, the Rangers might have had a chance, but Substitute Gardiner was helpless. Detroit's 1 to 0 overtime victory over Montreal qualified the Red Wings for a semifinals berth against the Toronto Maple Leafs, who had eliminated the New York Americans in two straight. After three periods of tight defensive hockey, the Red Wings took advantage of a penalty against Les Canadians' Johnny Gagnon to win in the first overtime session. Pena.Uy Breaks Defense Gagnon tripped Eddie Wares and was sent to the penalty box at 6:53 of the extra session. Detroit Manager Jack Adams sent five forwards on the ice. One thrubt failed when Goalie Borque turned back Gus Giezbrecht's hard shot But before Gagnon could get back on the ice, the Wings struck again with Barry. Lewis and Conacher passing their way neatly past the Montreal defense, Barry finally banging the puck past Borque from about 10 feet out. The Wings will go to Toronto for the first of their semifinal series Tuesday night. The second will be played in Detroit Thursday, and the third, if necessary m Toronto Saturday night. The Bruins and Rangers return to New York for their fourth game Tuesday night, and if a fifth is necessary, it will be played in Boston Thursday Charles City Team m Badminton Play Charles City bandminton players will be guests of Mason City- ans at the Y. M. C. A. courts Friday night, it was announced Monday by Herb Templin, physical director. Five or six players from each city will compete in singles and' doubles matches. "For Lan' sakes, air.
