Bradley Fails To Enter Horse In Kentucky Derby T OUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 19—(AP)—Colors of Col. E. R. Bradley, which have flashed to victory in four Kentucky Derbies, will be out of the 1941 classic. Colonel Bradley wrote Col. Matt Winn, president of Churchill Downs, where the three-year-old thoroughbreds' $75,000 race is held Tracks Offer Rich Purses PHICAGO,.

Arlington Park's meeting of 34 days will open June 23 and run through July 31, with Washington Park's 32-day session opening August 1 and closing September 6. The joint program contains 27 stake events, 13 at Arlington and 14 at Washington Park. The 13th running of the classic on July 26 will top Arlington's meeting, with the No. 1 race at Washington being the American Derby, to be held August 23. Each of these three-year-did fixtures is endowed with $40,000 added money and each is expected to gross approximately $70,000. Purse and stake endowment* alone will total $802,800, Jackson said. In addition, the tracks will distribute $15,000 in prizes to leading trainers and jockeys and make special awards in all races longer than VA miles. Both tracks have taken steps to provide insurance protection for jockeys and exercise boys. In addition to the classic and the derby, here are other standout events at the two plants: Arlington—July 12, the Futurity, two- year-olds, $20,000 added; July 4, Stars and Stripes Handicap, three- year-olds and up, 510,000 added; July 5, the Lassie Stakes, two- vear-old fillies, $10,000 added; Washington—September 1, Washington Park Handicap, three-year- olds and up, $25,000 added: August 16 the Futurity, two-year-olds, $20,000 added. each year, that "I haven't got a horse I can start." Nominations for the derby closed February 15 and will be announced March 8. Bradley said he was writing Colonel Winn because he did not want "friends, acquaintances and strangers" to throwaway their money In the winter books on a horse that would not start.

Hilfair, owned by W. W. Stone, startled a crowd of 14,928 by winning the turf course seventh race and paying $137.80 for $3 in the straight mutuels. Sam Luce, apprentice jockey, booted Hilfair to the finish line a length in front of Grey Doll, with Sweet Showno third in the mile-and-one-half race. The surprise winner paid $50.90 to place and $19.50 to show, Grey Doll refunding $12.70 and 55.90, and Sweet Showno paying $5.30 on the show end.

For this reason I have entered neither horse." Bradley added that "I won't have a horse, but I want my same old boxes, and I want to assure you I have some fine two-year-olds which will win for me in 1942." Colonel Winn said that while he was sorry the 1941 renewal would not have the glamour associated with a Bradley contender he heartily approved of his friend's action. This marks the fourth time since 1920 that Bradley has not nominated a horse for the derby. Bradley's colors won in 1921, 1926, 1932 and 1933. Last year his Bimelech was the ovewhelming favorite but lost to Gallahadion. Browns Sign Three Players ST. LOUIS, Feb. 19—(AP)—The Browns tonight announced the signing of three more players and said they would take Frank Grube, former Giant and White Sox catcher, to training camp as a free agent. Grube, who played with Toledo of the American Association ipr a time last season, will be given a tryout in competition with the club's regular catchers—Joe Grace and Bob Swift The three men who autographed contracts were Pitchers Denny Galehouse, purchased from the Boston Red Sox this winter; Emil Bildffli, who won two and lost four last season, and Outfielder Golf Field Led By Jean Bauer NASSAU, Bahamas, Feb. 19— (AP)—Jean Bauer of Providence, R.

City Tourney Title Matches Open Today TVfRS. W. E. McCLURE. Jr., the 1VA defending champion, and Betty Putnam, last year's runner-ui) nicked up the!r rivalry in the 18- hole qualifying round of the fourth renewal of the annual Phoenix city women's championship golf tournament yesterday over the Encanto Park course—and the friendly feud has lost none of its heat. The two golfers wound up the journey with 84s and then agreed to play three extra holes for medal- ist honors. On the 20th green, Miss Putnam missed a short putt and a chance to repeat as the tourney's medalist. Mrs. McClure. with a par four, won the hole and qualifying honors. If the two continue the pace they set yesterday, they'll nrob- ably meet in the 36-hole finals Sunday and the outcome should he closer than the 5-and-4 count of 1940. Miss Putnam outdistanced Mrs. McClure on tee shots yesterday, but the diminutive Encanto golfer had the University of Arizona coed bested on approach shots and'green work. Mrs. McClure wound up the first nine in 40. two over women's par after chalking up seven one-putt greens. Miss Putnam had a 43, exceeding regulation figures by one stroke on the first, second, sixth, seventh and eighth holes. Mrs. McClure faltered slightly on the back nine and wound up with a 44, four over par, while the Tucson golfer was just one stroke over the prescribed amount. After carding fours on the 19th, the defending champion won medalist honors on the 20th by following up a fine approach shot with an accurate putt. They played the 21st hole, according to the agreement, and both carded fours. The Phoenician opened the qualifying round with a shaky seven, two over par, but for the next six holes she was even with standard figures. On the eighth, she banged out a birdie-five and then went one over on the ninth. The third-place qualifier. Mollie Johnson, another University of Arizona coed, was well back with a 91. Three strokes behind her was Mrs. Charles Voigt of Denver with a 94. Bracketed with 96s were Mrs. B. J. Russell and Mrs. Frank Tully. Mrs. E. K. Foutz posted a 98 one stroke under the score of Mrs. W. K. Wiley. Sirs. M. I*. Wheeler came in with a 101. The pairings for today, qualifying scores in parentheses: 9:30 o'clock—Mrs. McClure (84) vs. Mrs. Wheeler (101); Mrs. Russell (96) vs. Mrs. F. W. Pool (107). 9-35—Miss Johnson (91) vs. Mrs. L L. Sams (102): Mrs. Foutz (98) vs. Mrs. M. E. Barnhill (115). 9:40—Miss Putnam (84) vs. Mrs. Gray Madison (102); Mrs. Tully (96) vs. Mrs. Jerry Packham (107). 9-45_Mrs. Voigt (94) vs. Mrs. A. E Pettit (107); Mrs. W. R. Wiley (99) vs. Mrs. Henry Albers of Flagstaff (128). The eight winners will make up the championship flight, and the losers will be dropped into the first flight. Coach Joins Air Force B ROWNWOOD, Tex., Feb. 19— (INS)—L E. (Shorty) Ransom, who is giving up his job as a college football coach to join the Royal Canadian Air Force, today left by auto for New York—and an adventure whose end he can't foresee. The soft-spoken, mild-mannered coach and 'athletic director at Daniel Baker College doesn't feel there's anything unusual about his change of ocupation. Flying is no novelty to him. He was in the U. S. Air Corps during World War days, although he didn't get to serve overseas. And in Brownwood he's been flight instructor for a Daniel Baker Civil Aeronautics Administration training course. Ransom expects he'll be used as a flight instructor with the Do minion's forces. As such, he may get to work once more with Wilbur Roberts, who might have been a regular on the 1940 Daniel Baker football team if he hadn't gotten the urge to fly for Canada. Phils' Pitcher Hurt PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 19—(INS) Frank Hoerst, right-handed Phillies' pitcher, today was suffering from a fractured ankle which may prevent any baseball activity for a month. Hoerst, basketball coach at a Philadelphia high school, was hurt during a practice session on the court.

Kim Bannister, the defending champion, toured 16 holes in one stroke under standard figures and pronounced himself ready for the wood and iron Mathewson Called Best Oi All Time !W YORK, Feb. 19—(UP)— "Bobby Feller of the Cleveland Indians is a good pitcher, sure, but so are a lot of other guys who've only been around four seasons. You gotta use years as a yardstick in baseball when you start picking the 'greatest' in the game. That's why I pick Christy Mathewson as the greatest pitcher that ever lived." It was Roger Bresnahan talking. The Bresnahan whose baseball history ranks him as one of the game's immortals; whose catching wizardry was a byword 35 years ago and who helped write one of the diamond's brightest legends when he was on the receiving- end of the great Mathewson's three shutouts against the Philadelphia Athletics in the 1905 World Series. Bresnahan, one of John J. McGraw's most popular athletes, is employed by a brewery in his home town of Toledo, O. He visited New York for the first.time in severa years when he attended the recent baseball writer's dinner. "Maybe the years have kinda taken the shine from Matty arount here," Bresnahan said, "but he'll always be the best to me. "Feller's good, I'll grant you that and he may some day be greater than Matty and Walter Johnson pat together. Only time will tell and that's why I'll ehoose Matty all the way. Remember, he was tons for 15 years, which is a mighty long time, no matter how you figure it." Time was called while the baseball minds in attendance digestec the Bresnahan pronouncements and highlights of Roger's own impressive record were dissected. Bresnahan was one of the stars of that 1905 World Series, first for McGraw. All five of the games were pitching masterpieces—shutouts—and Bresnahan was behinc the plate for every one. He was also the player who made the first progressive step in protective baseball equipment by strapping on shinguards at the Polo Grounds. "Boy, they sure called me lots of names when I tried on those shinguards," Bresnahan chuckled. "They must have been • good idea at that, though, 'cause they tell me catchers still wear 'em: •To get back to Matty, I think control was his greatest asset. No batter had to be afraid of him, in fact, they all were so unafraid they took toe-holds. Why he once went through two entire seasons and hit only two batters. "Yeah, I guess the one word that describes him best is poise—short for poison." Five Cardinals Sign Contracts ST. LOUIS, Feb. 19—(INS)—Five more members of the St. Louis Cardinals have signed 1941 contracts. Cardinal headquarters announced today. The club now has 23 players signed. The latest to come to terms were Pitchers Lonnie Warneke, Ira Hutchinson, Elwin (Preacher) Roe, and Max Surkout, and Infielder Steve Mesner. Both St. Louis major league clubs — the Cardinals and the Browns—are scheduled to begin spring training next Monday. The Cardinals will train at St. Petersburg, Fla., while the Brownies will train at-San Antonio, Tex. hostilities. Jack Trimble, the state amateu kingpin who banged out an eyer par round Tuesday, was a litti over the prescribed number strokes yesterday, but his scor wasn't high enough to, alarm him And Barge Pease, the former stal champ, is ready to renew His.ques for titles. The swamis hesitate to give th aforementioned quartet an exclu sive blessing for the meet. There a covey of dark horses capable o kicking over the oft-abused dop bucket before the 36-hole finals en the match-play affair Sunday. One of them is Dr. E. Payn Palmer, jr., who has regained hi putting touch and thereby become a major threat, and Arthur ^ Powers, senior champion of Ch cage's Olympic Fields layout, can be counted out. R. A. Stranahan of Toledo is rated by the clubhouse experts as a shotmaker who can easily upset the fair-haired boys. Two other highly rated out-of-town- era will be Clarence Brown, Tucson city champion, and Russell Valentine of Globe, who won the Phoenix invitational several years ago. Tom Lambie and V. C. Arm strong, jr., added a few surplu strokes to par yesterday, bu they're both looked upon as able t breeze through ordinary compel: tion. T. M.
