Noble Threewitt. 43-year-old native of Benton. 111., who trains Correlation for Owner Robert Sidney Lytle, of Los Angeles, beams with confidence He thinks his California comet pack' the authority of a dozen mint juleps. Won Last Two Starts In his last two starts, both $100.000 affairs. Correlation accounted for the Florida Derbv at Gulf- stream Park and the Wood Memorial at Jamaica. ■ Nothing has happened to change my mind about this colt.” said Threewitt as questioners gathered around draped in topcoats in the 50-degree weather. "Before Tuesday I thought ( Determine would be the hardest competition, but now I’ve got to add Hasty Road,” said Threewitt. Hasty Road, owned by the Hasty House Farm. Toledo. Ohio, was the greatest money-winning 2-year-old in history last year, but had been a big flop in his 3-year-old campaign until Tuesdav. Cracks Track Record Then* came the one-mile Derby Trial and the son of Roman stood off a challenge by Determine an eighth of a mile from the finish, and swooshed under the wire in 1.35 flat to crack the track record. Moody Jolley, who saddled Battle Morn, the 1951 Derby favorite, chimed in: ■‘Several of us clocked that race, and got Hasty Road in 1.34-„. It was one of the greatest exhibitions of speed anyone ever will see.” said Jolley, shaking his head. $102.800 For Winner Regardless, the field for Saturday’s mile-and-a-quarter Derby still shapes up with around 18 horses who will be entered tomorrow morning. If that many face the starter at 5:30 p. m. i EDT *. it will be the richest since Aristides first got this great show on the road bv winning the initial Derbv Mav 17, 1875.

New Orleans Youth Gains Unanimous Decision After Building Up Big lead Through Early Rounds 1 Bv The Associated Pre^si NEW OR LEANS—Speedv Ralph Dupas. of New Orleans oiled uo a tremendous advantage in the early rounds to score a unanimous 10- round decision over Dennis Pat Bradv. of New York, in a nationally-televised lightweight fight here last night. Dupas weiehed 137, Brady 134%. B^at» Bradv To Punch The 18-year-old Dupas. rated No. 5 in the lightweight division, sped to an overwhelming margin in the first four rounds by carrying the right to Uie rugged New Yorker. Dupas repeatedly beat Bradv to the punch with a dazzling left hook and opened up cuts over both eyes in the early rounds. The 26-vear-old Brady, a veteran of 95 professional fights’ seemed bewildered as the New Orleans high school student continually rushed in with a two handed attack. Dupas opened a wide gash over Bradv’s right eye in the first round and the cut apnea red to bother him for the rest of the fight. Bradlv rarelv had the opportunity to use his famous left hook as Dupas either tied him up or rushed him to the ropes with lighrninglike charges. AP Scores It €-3-1 Bradv came back strong in the middle rounds with a futile attempt to catch the elusive French speedster. Judges Bddie Wolfe and Francis Kercheval turned in identical cards, giving Dupas six rounds, Bradv two and two even. Referee Peter Gi- rauso scored six rounds for Duces and four for Brady. The Associated Press card gave Dupas six rounds, Brady three and one even.

ORIOLES PROGRAM SCHEME LOTTERY Maryland Attorney Generals Office Rules Free Game Tickets For Lucky Numbers Not Legal 'By The Associated Press) BALTIMOFE — Thousands of baseball fans have been participating in a lottery at home games of the Baltimore Orioles, the Maryland attorney general’s office has ruled. Assistant Attorney General Giles Parker said in an opinion requested by vice squad officers that the sale of programs at Orioles games which contained ’‘luckv numbers’’ for free Tame tickets was illegal. The possibility that fans had been taking part in a game which could cost them a year and a SI.000 fine did not come to light until yesterday. It was raised by defendants facing lottery charges because of a weekly drawing in a tavern shuffle- 1 board game. They said their sys- 1 tem was not substantially different from that of the ball games, where fans were sent paging through their programs for a “lucky number” announced over the public address system.

(This Is the fourth of seven articles in which former major league baseball stars tell how to play the game.) By ROGERS HORNSBY (Written for AP Newsfeatures ) When a fellow builds a ball club it should be built through the middle with a good fielding second baseman and a good fielding shortstop. We all like goot. hitters but if a second baseman is a Rood base runner, and ii there are other potential nitters on the team, hitting strength car be sacrificed. A second baseman's arm doe* not have to be too strong. The shortstop and third baseman need stronjf arms, but no* the second baseman. However, a second baseman must be able to make snap throws. You learn to play hitters by telling whether the batter hits to left field or right field You must know your own pitcher. If he’s a fast ball pitcher the chances are that a right handed hitter will not be able to Dull the J.ill to left field too well. On a batter like that it is well to play a bit toward first base. If he can t pull the ball he’s more apt to hit it to the right side of the field. Taking Relay Throws On relay throws from the outfield. the second baseman should take the throws from right center field and from right field. If the second baseman has a poor arm the shortstop should take the throws. Shortstops are supposed to take throws from left field and left cepter. Some fellows say the second baseman should face partially toward first base when fielding ground balls. I disagree. A second baseman, or a^v fielder for that matter, definitely must get ia Manager Casev Stengel 6 f the world rhampion Yankees say* ‘ Rogers Hornsby could do something no other second baseman could do.” Of his 53 baseball years, Stengel spent 25 in th*- National League and saw Hornsby play his first 11 years with the Cardinals. Savs Stengel: “He could go over to second base, take the throw and get out of the runner's way. The amazing thing about it was when he'd throw the ball to first base. He'd throw the ball hard and with speed. For most fellows its difficult to throw sidearm and get speed on the ball. ’If you were a first base coach you would see the ball come at the first baseman crossfire. I never saw anv other second baseman throw sidearm and get the speed on the ball that Hornsbv did.” BODY BLOCKS—Rogei Hornsby was noted f his hitting but he could make any play at second base. This picture, taken late in his career, shows him blocking a ground ball. Hornsby played every infield position during his 23 ▼ears in the majors and compiled a .358 lifetime average. front of all ground balls. Never play a ball off your side. Try to play the ball with both hands. There is too much of this one- handed stuff today. I se one hand only when forced 10 . On ground balls fieldec in the baseline between first and second and with a runner on first, the second baseman should try to tag the runner cominp down toward second. Always be sure to get the lead runner—the man moving from first to second. However, if the runner stops in the baseline the second baseman should throw the ball to first base to get tht batter. One out is better than nont. Always remember that the runner on first base is not forced to make second base once the batter has been retired. Second Base Pivot Here’s the best wav to pivot around second base. I learned that from experience. Always go to second base sr that the bag rests between the leys. You can shift like a first baseman that way. The second baseman should be able to shift his feet like p first baseman. In straddling the base you can shift to the left or right for bad throws and still be able to hit the bag with the inside of one foot or the other. When taJtmg a throw over the bag on the double plav attempt it is best to touch the bag with the inside of the right foot and step in toward the pitcher's mound With the left foot. You will be out of the baseline this wav and will not be knocked down bv the runner. Always pet to second ba>e as soon a«; possible. Backing Up First Baseman The second baseman backs ud the first baseman onlv on the sacrifice attempt when the first baseman leaves his positioi to field ’lie ball Anytime a first baseman can get back to the bag he should eet oack. * When you pitch out and the first baseman breaks in. the second baseman should break toward firs» base to try to catch the runner off. W'hen a ball is hit to the pitcher and there's the prospect of a double play, the shortstop should take the pitcher’s throw because the shortstop will be facing first base as he Roes over to second base He will be in a better position to com- Hornsby’s Record Rogers Hornsby, regarded as baseballs greatest righthanded hitter, batted .358 during his 23 years in the major leagues. He led the National League seven times and thrice batted over .100. Hornsbv was born April 27, 1896 at Winter.
