IMPORTANT HfPER AiML TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 20, 1937. PAGE FIVE NKW YORK, April 20 Iff)— Not since Black Gold won the Golden Jubilee Kentucky Derby in 1324 has a winter-raced horse won the $50,000 added stake for three-year-olds at Churchill Downs. T\irf,men used to say that "no good horse ever races In the winter." ,A1- thpugh, with the rich stakes at win- tei .tracks in recent years, this adage ho r longer holds true, the bookmakers; who Set the future odds on major racing events, believe no winter ra.ced. horse will win this year's Kentucky Derby on May 8. Odds on the "big five" winter- raced horses range from 20 to 40 to 1,' while quotations on the five best thoroughbreds Which led a life of ease during the cold months range frpm 6 to 15 to 1. 'Here are the "big five" in each division among this year's derby nominations: Winter-raced — Fairy Hill, Courl Scandal, Mrs. Ethel V. Marrs' Case Ace and Military, and DeWitt Page's Maedic. Winter-rested — E. R. Bradley's Brooklyn, J. H. -Louchheim's Pom- poon, Mrs. Mars'' Reaping Reward, Samuel D. Riddle's War Admiral and .Warren Wright's Galsun. Joseph E. Widener's Brevity, which finished second to Mortol I>. Schwartz's Bold Venture in last year's derby, was raced in Florida during the 1936, winter, and after being bumped at the start' came closer thkn any winter campaigner to winning the, rich stake since the triumph of ( Black Gold 13 years ago.

The Shippers fell before Harry Kimberlln's curve ball yesterday as the San Antonio hurler scattered ten hits. Other teams with a chance to move abreast of the Exporters lost their games. It was a day and night of sparkling pitching performances, featured by the three-hit shut-out of Dallas turned in by Clyde Lahtl of Tulsa. Lahtl was threatened only twice by the Steers as the oilers nosed them out 1-0. Tulsa's run came In the first on singles by Jansco and Sands and a fly to center by Fiartto.

A. marathon, would be superlatively happy today. But the transitory rewards of vic- ;ory, although sweet, are far from adequate and he hopes his proud townsmen of Verdun, Quebec, will give him a chance to get off the relief rolls after four years and become a policeman. "A job is what, I want most," said Young, after lie had beaten Arlington's great Johnny Kelley, the 1935 winner and the outstanding favorite. "The Verdun citizens financed my ;rip here for this race and promised ;hey would provide me with work If [ won," he explained. "I haven't iad a job since I got married, about four years ago but I have passed' ;he police examinations and I hope I can get a speedy appointment.

NEW YORK, April 20 (XP)—The astonishing spectacle of the two Philadelphia teams, alnfost unanimously chosen for the cellar berths, leadings the major leagues testified to the possibility of almost anything as the teams lined up today for the "real" opening after the preliminaries at Washington and Boston. Given good baseball weather all around, an outpouring of more than 200,000 fans was anticipated In seven cities to top off yesterday's total of around 67,000. New York, with all three metropolitan teams performing within the limits of the greater city for the first unanimous opening day in 25 years, looked for the biggest crowds. At least 50,000 were expected at Yankee stadium to see the world oham- pions open against Washington's Senators, yesterday's 4-3 victims of ;he Philadelphia Athletics. Some 30,300 more were looked for at Brooklyn's Ebbets field to see Burleigh Grimes lead his Dodgers against their traditional rivals, the Giants, for the first time. The Athletics returned home to face the Boston Red Sox; Detroit's Tigers entertained the Cleveland Indians and Chicago's White Sox hooked up with the Browns at St. Louis In other American league openers. Dean to Start. Manager Prank Frisch of the St. Llolis Cardinals called upon his loquacious star, Dizzy Dean, to start the Gas House Gang at Cincinati, where a capacity gathering of 34,000 was expected. A pair of first- division prospects, Pittsburgh and the Cubs, met In Chicago. The Phillies, who beat the Boston Bees 2-1 In 11 innings and l-o In yesterday's Patriots' Day bill at Boston, drew a day off, along with their opponents. Two of the game's shining stars were on the.sidelines and there was a notable casualty list through both leagues. Jimmy Foxx, the Red Sox first baseman, was recovering from sinus truble and Joe DiMaggio, Yankee center fielder, from an operation for removal of his tonsils and adenoids. Manager Mickey Cochrane of Detroit had a few worries over the illnesses of Pitchers Tommy Bridges and Schoolboy Rowe but was consoled by the knowledge of his own good health and by the return of Hank Greenberg to his old first- base job as well as the acquisition yesterday of hard-hitting Babe Herman. Wally Berger, the Bees' clouting outfielder, broke a finger during practice yesterday. Ruffine Still Unsigned. The Yanks' Charley (Red) Ruffing and Adolph Camilli of the Phillies, who wasn't greatly missed yesterday, remained as the No. 1. holdouts—the only players unsigned an the opening .day. Lou Gehrig, the indestructible Yankee, turned up with a painful injury of a finger on his right hand and every intention of playing in PITCHER ROOSEVELTS LOSES FIRST GAME IN FOUR YEARS A CHARMFUL his 1,809th consecutive game in spite of it. Under these conditions, virtually the only certainty was that the Phillies would remain atop the National league for at least one more day. They won their first contest yesterday when Morris Arnovlch, who played with Hazelton, Pa., most Jim Braddock holds Nanette Wright, 7-year-old ballet skater, at a Minneapolis ice show, and tells her how he is going to put his fight with Joe Louis on ice, June 22. The heavyweight champion, training at Stone Lake, Wis., visited a Minneapolis physician for treatment of an infected eye. WASHINGTON, April 20 t/Py ->Hurler F. D. Roosevelt>-^a converted third baseman from Groton—nursed today his first defeat as a lucky ball-thrower-outer for the Washington Senators. Until yesterday, the big right- hander had a perfect record. Four times he flung out the opening day baseball at Griffith stadium, and four times the local nine came out atop the Scoreboard. The President wns Retting a little chesty over his performance. Last year lie commented on how the capital club always won behind -him. Right-hander Roosevelt took a shiny white ball from Manager Harris. Thirty-two thousand fans and the Washington and Philadelphia tennis watched. The ball went twirling and then came diamond disaster — a triple fumble. Three Washington .stalwarts got their trained fingers on the ball but it eluded them. Finally third baseman Buddy Lewis came up with It. Oldsters shook their heads—the season's first fumble—a bad sign. The rest is history. The Philadelphia club beat the home boys 4 to 3, despite the fact that right- hander Roosevelt stayed in the box the whole 10 Innings. Anyhow, his record is four one and one lost. "Which." said Manager Harris "is pitching .800 baseball. Give me another flinger like that, and I'll grab the pennant." of last season, hit a home run in the eleventh. Pitching won the second. A pair of rookies, Al Williams and Earle Brucker, accounted for the Athletics' victory. After President Roosevelt lobbed out the first ball, Edgar Smith, another rookie flinger, kept on Jobbing until the Senators collected three run in two innings. Williams then hurled four-hit ball for the remainder of the game while Brucker's double in the tenth inning brought in Bob Johnson with the winning run. NEW YORK. April 20 «P)—Harry Green, 37. ow Weehawkcn. N. J., was stabbed and beaten early today ae he attempted to serve Father Divine, negro evangelist whom his followers call "God," with a legal paper in "The Kingdom."
