Saturday At the Roces Better Bee in Upset Victory, Round Table 3d CHICAGO — (i'P) — Round wheeling again at the start. Table, turf's richest money- Village Idiot, in turn, was a winner, placed third as Better head before Windfields Farm's Bee charged to a one length Canadian ace, Grey Monarch, victory in the $56,500 Equi- pnoj, highweighted at 114. poise Mile In Arlington Park Saturday. Round Table, the 4-5 favorite ridden by Willie Shoemaker, never made a bid on a slow track in his first start since capturing the July 4 Stars and Stripes handicap in Washington Park. William S. Miller's Better Bee, five-year-old dark bay, finished a length ahead of Belleau Chief, who in turn was four lengths ahead of Round Table, struggling under a 132- pound impost. Better Bee, ridden by John Choquette, was clocked in 1:37 flat as he returned his owner, a member of the Illinois Racing Board, the winner's purse of $33,450. Round Table, who won $7,500 Saturday, pushing his all- time winnings to $1,460,139, spotted Better Bee 17 pounds and Belleau Chief 22 pounds. He simply was unable to get untracked in the 10 horse field, running sixth early in the race, nudging up to fifth midway in the turn for home and gradually working up to third down the stretch. Better Bee, paid $18.20, $8 and $4.20 to backers in a crowd of 25,483. Belleau Chief's place price was $12 and $5.20. Round Table returned $2.80 to show. Better Bee, who won the Laurance Armour Memorial July 18 in Arlington, scored his sixth victory this year and the 16th of his career under a heady ride by Choquette. Better Bee raced third down the back stretch, overtook the early pace-setter Benedicto coming out of the final turn and held off Belleau Chief's bid near the wire. SKY CLIPPER COPS SAPLING AT 35-1 including a pound overweight, covered the run in deep footing of the new track in 1:53, slowest Whitney at nine furlongs. He paid $15.10, $5.20 and $3.40, while earning $37,165. Plion, in his start here early in the week, placed third to Amber Diver and Ambehaving, both of which were among the also rans in the field of 10 Saturday. In all, the brown four-year-old son of Greek Ship has won 3 of 14 starts this year and $84,510. Last year, he took 5 of 23 and $65,432. When the break came Plion was quickest away. He went along steadily and willingly with Ambed Diver close behind. He carried Amber Diver out, however, on the turn, then drifted in for the home stretch and just lasted to outstay Amerigo. THE CRACK NIPS PACK AT THE WIRE SALEM, N. H. —(/P)—Just two lengths separated eight horses at the finish of the $7,500 Pelham Handicap Saturday at Rockingham Park as Bayard Tuckerman Jr.'s The Crack won his first race of the year before 17,182. Under a hustling ride by jockey Norman Mercier, the the five-year-old son of Pavot was a head in front of Battle Neck after six-furlongs. One Question finished only another nose away in third place while Coloneast, coupled with the winner just missed the show award by a neck. Then came ICharlie Boy, Eamohe, Motor Line and Cuvier Boy.

Monmouth's richest race was a whistling thriller as the long shot Sky Clipper won in his first stakes race appearance. Big Biz finished third in the 6 furlong event for two- year-olds, a length behind Bally Ache. Steady rains turned the track sloppy, and the gray skies made it difficult to see only a quarter of a mile to go, the rest of the field took up the chase and it was a cavalry charge through the last eighth of a mile. --.ImiriiHl- riiMi s I'luito --.imii iiiu- I linr rmmi BEAUMONT EXHIBIT —John Osenga, left, of Racine shows his sons, Robert, center, and John a bat used by Clarence (Ginger) Beaumont, one-time major leagvio star who is best remembered as being the first man to bat in the world series as we know it today.

Johansson was in town to sec Roscnsohn about the money he has coming from the Patterson fight. Ingemar said in Gotehorg, Sweden, he still hasn't seen a nickel of it and furthermore that he wants an innnodiate accounting of the income from theater television and film riglils for the bout. Gibson said his examination still have a suit against Johansson. He said he had smilingly suggested to Johansson that a fight with Machen later might be one way to get the suits stopped, lie said Johansson only shrugged hi.s shoulders and made no reply. Gibson said that Johan.sson had indicated to him that he was fully determined to fulfill his contract for the return bout with Patterson, and was not thinking about any previous fight.

King Ara, high-weighted with Gainsworth at 117 pounds, paid $8.60, $4.20 and $3.40. Chevalate returned $4.60 and $3.80 and Mr. Eiffel $6.80. Jockey Billy Pierce took King Ara nicely from the number one post position and, hugging the rail, held on gamely in front to the wire. Gains- worth, English-bred son of the great Hyperion, made the race a thrilling duel with King Ara along the back stretch and heading into the run for the wire. But in the stretch, Gains- worth, with jockey Johnny Longden applying the whip, couldn't match the stout running of the winner. Chevalate made a strong challenge in the stretch, but Pierce went to his whip and King Ara pulled away smartly. Others in the race, in order of finish, were 1 Step, The Biscuit and Gay Weekend.
