M2 E.I. BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1932 Equipoise and Repaid Move Into the Center of the Racing Stage 20 Former Tops Man o' War In Money; Latter Is Fine 1933 Prospect By W. C. VREELAND Into the center of the racing stage there moved on Saturday two fine colts Equipoise and Repaid. It was nothing new for the former. But it was strange to see the latter in that prominent place. Each had been asked a hard question, in a racing way, and had made good. Equipoise with 128 pounds had won the Havre de Grace Handicap, and Repaid, the Junior Champion with 112 pounds at Aqueduct. Each was a sterling victory. It marked the return of Equipoise to his best form after a recent spell of enforced idleness and defeat due to stomach trouble. Repaid had but recently graduated from the maid- en ranks. All Summer Equipoise had been the champion of the handicap division. Repaid had been beaten by faster colts at shorter distances than the mile route which gave him his chance as a future great a claimant for the three-year-old crown of 1933. Equipoise stepped the mile and a furlong course at Havre de Grace in 1:50 1-5 a tiptop performance with 128 pounds. Repaid stepped the mile course at Aqueduct In 1:39, winning easily in the last 50 yards by open daylight a sparkling performance even though he carried eight pounds less than Kerry Patch, which beat him In The Futurity, and ten pounds less than Caterwaul, which won the Eastern Shore Handicap at Havre de Grace and the National Stallion Stakes at Belmont Park In the Spring. Repaid certainly proved that he possessed stamina. As I told the readers of The Eagle, I saw this colt work early in the Spring and he impressed me with his quality. Then he suffered from bucked shins which laid him on the shelf for a long time. In his race ' in the Junior Champion It was his stamina, the big asset that helps a colt to train on and develop into a three-year-old, that earned him his place In the first rank of notable Juveniles. - While there Is no question that his 112 pounds was a helpful factor in his final sprint to the winning goal, it must be said that Repaid turned in a fine performance. The time, 1:39, was one second slower than that hung up by Gallant Fox -when he won in 1929 with 116 pounds, and Twenty Grand when he won in 1930 with 111 pounds. It 'was also two-fifths of a second slower time than that made by Faireno when he won with 116 pounds last year. - But one cannot with all fairness gauge time of a track from year to year. It's even impossible to do so News Events and Feature Stories From Communities in Queens and Nassau .'Back Lehman Or Face Bolt,' Threat to Krug Lynbrook Democrats Wire Leader They'll Switch to G. O. P. Lynbrook, Oct. 3 Demand that County Leader Philip N. Krug of Nassau ,support Lieutenant Governor Herbert Lehman for the Democratic nomination for Governor or face a switch of Democrats in this village to the Republican column was made today in a telegram to the leader at Albany by Emmanuel Levy, Democratic leader in this village. "Lieutenant Governor Lehman Is excellently fitted for the post of vernor of New York State and his character and training make him one of the outstanding Democrats In the State." Levy wired. "As an enrolled Democrat I demand that you support Colonel Lehman's candidacy. If this is not done I plan to organize a committee of Democrats and Lehman supporters to work for the election of all local Republican candidates and for " Governor Roosevelt and Garner only," Levy declared. "You would show very little interest in the success of your party in Nassau County this year if you did not support Colonel Lehman, particularly as the local Democratic ticket headed by our candidate for Congress has an unusual chance of success this year. This telegram Is sent to you because you have not declared yourself as yet and may be caught in the bloc that wants to stop Lehman," Levy stated. Levy, a former resident of Brooklyn, has been active in the Democratic organization of Nassau since taking us his residence in Lynbrook. He has been a candidate for Judicial office and is understood to have considerable following among local Democrats. Freeport Police Win 3-Cornered Shooting Contest Freeport, Oct. 3 With a lead of 69 points the pistol team of the Free-port Police Department emerged easy victors yesterday in the three-cornered revolver contest with the teams of the Derby, Conn., police anct-the Foresters of America. The contest was held on the Freeport pistol range adjoining the Municipal Stadium on Mill Road. For the local police team, Villa ee Trustee Le Roy C. Mountcastle officially received a silver cup which' the local team won recently at a contest in Shclton, Conn. from season to season. Even an hour's time under the rays of the sun will vary the resiliency of the soil. On the performances of Gallant Fox and Twenty Grand before they started In the Junior Champion and the races of Repaid before he stepped out on Saturday, one can scarcely credit the son of Kai Sang with the quality, of Gallant Fox and Twenty Grand. But Repaid certainly looks as good in a racing way, this in the matter of conformation and performances, as Faireno and Faireno went on and won a fortune as a three-year-old. So outwardly on the showing of Repaid in the Junior Champion and what the other Juvenile colts have done this year, barring possibly Ladysman, he appears to have good prospects for money honors in 1933. About the only question that one can raise against him is this would he have won had he carried 122 pounds? In all other respects he met the standard of merit. When a colt shows a disposition to go a route, that is a most valuable asset the asset. Equipoise by his victory at Havre de Grace Jumped into the position of the sixth greatest money winner of the American turf, his $21,250 triumph bringing his total earnings up to $264,710. By that success he passed the money winning figures of Twenty Grand, Display, Victorian, Exterminator and Man o' War, that were just ahead of him. Now the horses that lead him in a money way are Sun Beau, with $276,744; Gallant Fox, $328,165; Zev, $313,639; Mate, $273,425, and Blue Larkspur, $272,070. The United Hunts Racing Association, an association that is made up largely of racing enthusiasts who are devotees of the sport between the flags, will hold only one racing matinee this year that on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, at Belmont Park. For that special occasion the THEY Prize winners in the annual dahlia show of the Douglaston Garden Club held last week in the Community House, Douglaston. The group includes (1) Miss.Olivia J. Norris, chairman of the show, winner of the tri-color for the outstanding exhibit and of the rose trophy; (2) Mrs. Guy Robinson, vice president, winner of the first prize for miniatures; (3) Mrs. James A. Coyle, winner of first prize in two groups; (4) Mrs. Joseph J. Wesley, also winner of a first; (5) Mrs. Albert Humble, winner of first prize for single rose dahlia; (6) Mrs. H. Collins Gwynne, president, winner of first prize in white cosmos group. 4 Youths and Girl Held After Gun Is Found in Car Stella Martin, 19, of 398 Bristol St., made an unfortunate choice of companions for a Saturday evening automobile ride. Although Stella claims she had no knowledge of the fact, Detective George Wagner of the Queens gun squad claims that a fully loaded revolver was in the right-hand front pocket of the automobile in which Stella and four young men were, riding. As . a result, Stella spent Saturday night in jail and will Lave to appear In the Ridse-wood Magistrates Court on Friday to answer a charge of illegal possession of firearms. Police Search Automobile Detective Wagner and other members of the gun squad were out Saturday evening checking persons and places where guns might be found. On Fresh Pond road near 50th Ave. Ridgewood, Detective Wagner searched an automobile in which four youths and Stella were seated. He claims he found the revolver in the car pocket. He placed the entire quintot under arrest. The youths described themselves as Walter Kurpiewsky, 22, of Ohio's Powerful Around End Play Touchdown Secrets Q. H" H By JOE GLASS Here is a powerful end play which Ohio State executes perfectly and which will be an efficient weapon when Indiana is encountered at Columbus next Saturday. It is a reverse to the strong side of an unbalanced line. The formation is very compact and in this lies its strength. The back man is only two and a half yards behind center. In every respect the play is designed for high speed development Used at the proper stage of a cycle of variations it may well catch the opposition off balance. It is a big ground gainer for Ohio State. Fast, hard blocking by the right wing back and the right end and well-timed interference by right tackle, left guard, left end and No. 2 back are primary essentials for success. The ball goes direct to Nc. 4. He moves forward one step and then, pivoting left, gives the ball to No. 3, the left wing back, who sweeps around the strong side end. No. 1 has blocked in the enemy left end, and No. 5 has done the same thing for the enemy left tackle. Nos. 7, 8 and 9 come back out of the line, and, with No. 2, form the interference. No. 4, in addition to receiving the snap, and passing to No. 3, must block the enemy right tackle or end, if either threatens the play. admission to the grandstand will be cut to $2.20, including Federal tax. This decision was arrived at at a recent meeting when a number of new members were elected. The chief feature of the afternoon's sport will be the Temple Gwathmey Memorial Steeplechase Handicap at two and a half miles. There are 33 eligibles, among which are the best in this brigade Tourist 2d, Barometer, Green Cheese, Chenango and Azucar.

OLD BELLECLAIRE (71) Sweepstakes: J Mil Queens Group For Home Owners To Ask City Aid A plea for relief for the small home owners of Queens and charges of discrimination in the disbursement of city relief funds was voiced last night by George A. Lindsay, president of the Westbridge Taxpayers Association, before a meeting held at Columbia Hall, Richmond Hill. Among the charges made by the speaker was that too much money was spent on "overhead," the nonresidents were being given relief and that the city should not bar relief to those who are in distress, although they own their own homes. Mr. Lindsay said that the organization would send a protest to Mayor McKee urging that the small home owner be given consideration In dispensing of relief funds "whose small equity has disappeared because of depressed realty prices. A list of organizations which are sending letters to the Board of Estimate urging consideration for the small Queens home owner are Republican Club of Hollis and Bel-laire.

McKee if efforts to secure action through other sources fail, it was announced by John W. Tied-mann, president of the Richmond Hill Civic Association, today. "We have been waiting for two years for an appropriation for the installation of lights along this section of Lefferts Boulevard. Although only two blocks long, the street traffic In its present uncontrolled conditions Is a serious menace to the safety of pedestrians in the community," President Tledmann said. "There isn t'a week goes by but some one is killed or maimed in this section. It Is a dangerous traffic hazard and we want traffic lights there so that people can cross in safety. We have asked our local Alderman for co-operation and he has promised it but hasn't come through yet. If we don't get his co-operation we will go to the Police Commissioner, and if that falls to the Mayor," he said. The organization will meet in Fraternal Hall, Richmond Hill, next Thursday evening to discuss the problem. TO HEAR CANDIDATES The Roosevelt-Garner Club of Southold Town will hold a public smoker in the Ford Building, Front St, Greenport, tomorrow evening. Several county candidates are expected to speak.

Glauzitz and his son, John, of 40 Pacific St, Baldwin, won a battle with the elements yesterday while fishing about a half-mile off shore yesteday at the west end of Jones Beach. They were in their 28-foot cabin cruiser Marie and anchored near a wreck where large blackfish are known to be present. A strong south wind was blowing when an extraordinarily large wave picked up the little cruiser and tossed it on a portion of the wreck that was above water, staving a hole in the side. 'Lido Special' Shows Local Golfers Some Small Town Customs By RALPH TROST "It takes these fellows from the small towns to show us city folk how things can be done." Someone made that pertinent observation at Lido yesterday. At breakfast, mind you, which is pretty early for that sort of thing. However, there was good reason for it. At that breakfast were 30 golfers. Two-thirds had been contestants in the Lesley Cup matches at Timber Point the previous day. At one end of the table sat Woodie Piatt. Woodie hadn't had much sleep. But he was wide awake. And singing. Alongside him sat C. C. "Happy", Fraser, the fuzzy-haired Canadian. He, too, sang. At the other end wag Johnny Walker in person and not In a bottle who answered every song with a song of his own. Between these opposites were the other golfers. And all having a grand time. There were men from small-town Boston. From Philadelphia and from little cities up near Montreal. The others were New Yorkers that is, except Generalissimo Don Grant, who was born in the Dominion. It was all so "un-New York." So small-townlsh, U you like that sort of word. It certainly wasn't big-city stuff as this wandering reporter has seen it. However, there isn't a doubt that it was what you'd describe as successful. OXFORD-CAMBRIDGE BREAKFAST RECALLED I don't believe that Lido ever saw such a party. Not unless it were the famed breakfast of the Oxford-Cambridge golfers when they were there some years ago. A remarkable affair, that event of the. British collegians, who managed somehow to catch a 6 o'clock special bus at 11 in the morning. Golfing parties like these seem foreign to this section. A regrettable situation, since every one seemed to be thoroughly enjoying himself. It was a real "get-together." After breakfast, they started out in a special competition. It was a best-ball affair. There was no pair of Canadians matched against two Philadelphians. They had enough of the serious competition in the Lesley Cup matches. In the Lido Special a Canadian found himself partnered with a gentleman from Philly, or maybe Boston, or even New York. When they finished their matches they behaved Just like the golfers at Garden City, Cherry Valley, P. N. Krug Charges Supervisors Kiting Realty Valuations Boosting Levels to Borrow Leader Cites Four 1923 in Mineola, Oct. 3 Charges that the Nassau County Board of Supervisors have inflated the assessed valuations on prop erty for the purpose of increasing the board's borrowing capacity were made by Nassau Democratic County Leader Phillip N. Krug at his head quarters here today. "In 1923 the Supervisors," said Krug, "placed an assesed valuation of $215,260,504 on the County. By 1928 they had raised it to $805,-175,114 and in 1931 raised it to $945,273,222." "Since the supervisors are allowed to borrow by law no more than ten percent of the assessed valuations. one may readily see that each additional Increase enlarges their borrowing and spending capacity," he asserted. "In other words, even after they have spent all the taxes they have collected, they may go further and spend wnat they haven't got. Naturally this is reflected in the bonded debt of the county." "By what process of logic the supervisors arrive at their valuation no one knows, nor can anyone figure it out. In 1931, when the last increase of approximately $100,000,000 was made, our present economic situation had actually reduced realty values by much more than that. Stocks then reached a low ebb, commodities were cheaper and real estate sales were lower than ever. .The earning power of the taxpayer has decreased substantially, and in many instances been wiped out, but at such time we find the supervisors raising assessed valuations for no other purpose than to spend more," Krug said. Death as Wave Sunken Wreck With no help in sight. Glaubits was faced with the prospect of clinging to the wrecked boat until hpp arrived. He managed to get the boat free and clear and patching the hole temporarily, started the motr and headed for shore. The boat struck the beach in a smother of foam and the two occupants were toseed into the surf but waded ashore. A few moments later the boat was washed up on the beach. Chief Park Engineer Sidney Shapiro of the L. I. State Park Commission obtained a tractor and hauled the boat high and dry. Wheatley Hills cr St. Albans. But with this exception. After having their shower and getting dressed, the early finishers did not depart on their several ways. They ambled out to the 18th green to watch the others. Now that sort of thing is done around the "big city," but not as much as it might. Cherry Valley and Garden City, where the 18th green lies beneath the lounge room windows, is familiar with this amusing business of watching the other chap finish, when there are shots to be cheered and some to be Jeered. You know the sort of jeer the fitting reward for a three-putt green or one of those raw dub shots executed by a chap who cannot keep his head down. Yes, around Garden City they go through this very interesting practice, but it's not general in this section. And it's not indulged as naturally as by those visitors at Lido. Possibly that at Lido may have been the result of a wider interest in golf. Maybe only in their fellow men. It might be that the practice wouldn't be as continually amusing as It turned out yesterday. However, there's no doubt that the Lesley Cup players were highly entertained particularly at Woodie Piatt's comments and Don Grant's antics when Don holed a two-yard putt which wrested at least a whole dollar from Maurice McCarthy and his partner. Incidentally, that putt was the one which enabled Don and Chris Brinke to finish in a tie with Tom Potter and Jeff Turpin at 76. Brinke and Grant had a great scheme of operation. At least that's how it turned out. Chris, the Pennsylvania, amateur champion, did the heavy work on all long holes except that finishing 18th. Grant took care of all the wee ones.- It was an unusual partnership deal. Yesterday was one day when the More, Says Democratic - fold Rise Since Attack HITS BOARD Kas-fsf Phillip N.

In the closest match of the day William Fischer of University Heigths defeated Harrison Cole, 68. 63, 75. visiting golfers had a shot at the course when It was really Lido. In the past the Long Beach links has had the unhappy faculty of curling up and playing dead every time some "foreigners' showed up. It was the deadest of golf courses for the two Metropolitan open championships. And it was not what you'd call in rugged health when the women had their chance at it. The winds always died. The ground dried out. Vaunted Lido became a veritable toy at least when compared to the'f ull-blooded Lido that the members know. But yesterday there was wind. And there was grass on the fairways. The greens, were anything but spongy, which made it necessary to do something more than merely stand up to a ball and smack it right at the pin secure in the knowledge that a spongy green would permit the ball to stick where it hit. . Naturally there weren't any marvelous scores. Even though the golf was good. Phil Perkins, more or less a guest player since he forsook; the amateur ranks, carved a grand 72 for himself.
