Rubco Marathon Race Carries On Nation's Unbeatable Spirit By BERNARD BRENNER United l*r«fts Sports Staff Twenty-five men lined up at the Bridge of Marathon in Greece one day in 1S9& — and .a 26th —a ghostly spectator— Blood beside them. That twenty-sixth man was n Greek runner—ft swift nnd strong man named Phcidippides. He hnd come back from the hazy centuries to watch the others run n race in his honor. Those runners had gathered to compete in the first modern-clay Marathon. pheidippides earned the right to a place among the heroes of Greece many centuries ago when the Persians tried to invade Greece. The Greeks threw the Persian army back into the ocean— but 26 miles away at Athens—the center of Greek power—they waited impatiently for news of the battle. Fheldippidcs ran from Marathon to Athens. He gasped out his famous message—"Rejoice, we conquer"—and he died In 1896 the Greek government set up the Marathon run to honor the memory of Phoidippide.s. Men Of "11 nations lined up at the little Marathon bridge. An American — Arthur Blake ot Boston — was one of that band of 25. A pistol shot started them off. The shot barked from the gun of a Greek colonel with a name so long that hardly any of the reporters at the race tried to include it in his story. Tho runners moved along easily as they loped through the first Cow miles of the race—they wanted to save themselves for the later stages. And residents of the Greek villages along the wny got something of a shock a.s they watched the parade of runners pass through. A Frenchman lod the pack—behind him came an Australian—and Arthur Blake, the American, was running a good third. Not one Greek runner showed before fifth pl.'icc. But the spectators had plenty of sportsmanship—they shouted encouragement to all tho runners—and they offered wine to anyone who wanted it. Five miles went by—then ten, nnd the race began to shake down. Weariness began to show on the faces of the straining runners. Each step was harder to take than the one before it. At the fifteen-mile n-.ark. Bloke, the American, dripped. He was through. Still, H Frenchman led. >Voll back in the crowd of struggling runners was Louos'— a Greek farmer. The field was strung out by that time—the stragglers — the ones who didn't have a chance—struggled along far back in the ruck. Up front the painting contestants pou-ncled past the sixteenth mile— Lhe seventeenth—the cigghtecnth— and then thn nineteenth, There the load changed 'minds again. This time an Australian— his name was Flack—pushed his way to the front. And then began the "duel'that was to tell the story of thn race. The Greek farmer— Loucs, from the village of Marous- si—moved up to challenge Flack. Their pulses pounded and weights seemed to hold down their arms and legs. " Still the two runners fought along side, by side through the twentieth mile—the twenty- first—neither one would, give way. In the stadium at Athens a huge crowd waited impatiently for the first .runner to come through the entrance and race around the track that marked the finish of the twenty-six miln grind. The king of Greece waited In his box. Two princes wailed at the stadium entrance. Then the cannons boomed, announcing the approach of ner. The 'crowd rose and every eye in tho stadium watched the cnr trance. They could hear cheers In the distance. And then a man came through—jogging easily—and the two Grecian princes trotted along witfi him as he completed the last few yards of the maralhon. For a moment there wns silence while the crowd tried to see who this duHt-covcrcd runner was. And Ihcn there came a roar that drowned out the cannons—it was Ixnics—Ixmcs the .Greek farmer. He had won the race to honor one of the nation's greatest heroes, Muskrat Industry Booms In Texas Beaumont — (UP-)—Texas has R new but booming industry — the production of muskrat pelts for the fur markels of New York. W. P. H. McFaddin, whose vast Gulf Coast ranch Is the habitat of hordes of muskrats, estimates the annual yield of pelts in this area at 5300,000. Along the . entire Southwest Louisiana-Southwest Texas coastal strip, he says, the potential yearly "muskrat take'.' will run Into millions of dollars.

The local outfit defeated the down-thc-nver boys, 1J-G in a collision two weeks ago with Big Ed Galvin leading the locals to the victory by some excellent mound support from the sidelines. The local squad will be at full strength with Coach 'Jimmy Grant bringing the rubbing alcohol and linimenf to be served ro the team after the ball game, Mgr. Nordy Naugos said this morning. The team, Mgr. Naugos added, would '.ike to bring along its own umpires a-s an aid to winning tho game. But it is believed the home club will furnish the umpires. Whom Mgr. Nauges and .Coach Grant will start on the mound was not announced this morning, nor was the rest of the team made known. This is a move of strategy on the part of the local powers, as the Selmour club studied closely each of the local players in the last game, and will undoubtedly introduce means of stopping their hittmg.

This V That By DUKE KAZI.AUSKAS ]l (SporU Editor) Thc long shots have paid off recently. First it waa Twilight Tear with 11 straight victories, racing at healthy odds —and losing to an unknown nag. And now Bob Hamilton reigns as the F-G-A golf king of the year, defeating Lord Byron. Nelson ,1-up. Odds on that one were 30-1, favoring, ot course, the veteran Texas campaigner, Nelson. Which goes to show that 3.0 to 1 odds or 12 to 1 odds may be too much for anything. It is definite that the golfers didn't gobble up any bets on Nelson, at those odds. For Bob Hamilton — written up as the Hoosicr Unknown—isn't as unknown as all that to felly.'-' golfers. True, he never hit the big time before— but he did come close. • Hamilton started playing pro back in 1937 but his golfing- ma.dc aooul as much noise as eating marshmallows in a foundry. He operated on a slight money margin and. when disgusted, he'd throw his ties and shirts in a grip anc head lor home—Evansville, Indiana. This season he decided to stick through the entire chain of moneyed tournaments, because of large pots and fewer golfers. He finished in-the New Orleans open, ahead of such sharpshooters as Craig Wood, Ed Dudley, Tony 1-cnna and other journeymen shots. From that one he hopped to Pinehurst and won the North- South open, his first win outside of Indiana. Officials of the just-finished PG-A match couldn't see anything but a Jug McSpadcn-Byron Nelson .final. They certainly didn't peek through the keyhole and see the handwriting, when Hamilton ouisteadicd McSpaden to eliminate him from the match play. But Bob Hamilton finally stuck out a golf season, and won a major tourney right at the fag end, operating against Byron Nelson and those fat 30" to 1 odds. "It's Life" Department: Here is a choice item from the Pelican, the New Orleans Naval Training Station paper. It tells how -an old lady came up to the captain at his ship's launching. She looked up trustfully and asked, "Captain, how often do big ships Jike this sink?" Thc captain politely answered, "Usually just once.

Chute, director. Visitors to the aquarium now can sec some of the most beautiful fish in the world, including iridescent Angelfish, beautiful but dangerous Triggcrfish. Butterfly- fish, and delicate Oscar, the Octu- pus. who is no beauty hut is by far tho most popular exhibit in the aquarium. Octopi are very difficult to keep in captivity, usually living only a few weeks. Chute said. Other queer-looking fish have appropriate names, such as the cockeye pilot, jolt-head porgy, Slippery Dick, ra-zorfish, and yellow grunt.' There ave also delicate sea anemones, which look like flowers. Due to the war no collecting has been attempted for over two years. This expedition was made possible by the help of the United States and Bahamas governments, the U. S. Navy and U. S. Coast Guard, Chute said. Tho crew spent two weeks on Bimini, a small island on the edge of. the Gulf Stream, collecting these specimens. BUY WAR BONDS AND STAMPS Playoff With Waterbury Tool Soon To Meet Waterbury Mfg.
