Jet Pilot won the nod at the ivire, but with a fast track forecast for the Preakness.'. he was expected to be no belter t,han second, and perhaps, third choice in Ihe setting. Phalanx who nosed out Faultless for second, probably will 30 in the betting choice at 8 to 5 although both he and Jet Pilot were listed at 2 to 1 in the overnight line with Faultless al 4 o 1. These odds rerefleced he opinion of turf experts — that Phalanx and faultless would benefit more than a fast track than the Main Chance farm beauty, who likes to run in the kind of heavy going which marked Ihe Derby.

During a long spring training session extending liom Aiizona to Honolulu, Manager Mel Oil toyed \\ith the idea lhat bi^, Clint \\ is an oulfielder. He started the season with him in left field. After risking life, limb and pilch- Li s' icpulalions fui two WLC Kb Mel beckoned the big fellow to the bench and entrusted left field lo Sid Gordon. 'Maybe this guy is a pitcher after all," Oil mumbled to him- iclf. And he sent dim to the bullpen. This may turn out to be his best move of the 1947 season. Hartung's mound record in Honolulu last summer was a gaudy 2fi wins and no defeats, pitching for an army air force team. In hi: spare time he hit .501 as a i'ly chaser Bill Voiselle and Mike Budnick had been treated roughly by Boston yesterday, yielding six runs in Ihe first three innings, so Oil de cided lo unveil Mr. Hartung as a big league Ditcher. Clint shut out the hard-hilling Braves the rest of the way. allowing only two singles ni six innings and stringing out five Jonnny Mize's ninth homer and Willard Marshall's third got two of Ihe runs back but the Giants sue combed to Warren Spahn's fancy leflhanded pitching, 6-2. Boston's success was rewarded with a first-place lie w'itii Chicago, which thumped Cincinnati, fl-l, because Brooklyn fell from Hie top by losing an 11-inning niglil game lo Ihe Phillies, 05. Bobby Feller had to work hard to get a decision, going 11 frames oelure Cleveland topped St. Louis, 05, on Joe Gordon's third hit of the night.

It may even become necessary lo shut clown all U.

Welsh, who is mayor of Grand Rapids, Mich., said he spokes for the country's major cities which •operate 90 per cent of the nation's important airports." 'If the Congress finally sustains Ihe recommendations of the House Appropriations Committee in Isash- ing the air safely program budget of the Civil Aeronautics Administration," he said, "the cities want here and now to serve notice that beginning July 1 next Ihis country will witness an epidemic of airplane crasnes the like of which we have never experienced. Welsh said the Hoi'se committee recommended abandonment of CAA traffic control toers at all commercial airports and "curtailment of installation and operaloin of over 1,000 modern air na'viga- lion facililies al most of the air terminals throughout the coun- U> He found it "inconceivable" that the committee could so recommend "following ihe accidents of last fall and winter."

No otheiv team'— with the possible exception of the- University of Arkansas, the darkhorsc — seems to have a chance of grabbing top honors in the conference classic at Waco May 16 and 17, but there ?s enough strength among the other entries lo promise the greatest circuit meet in history. Rice and Baylor arc due to cut some ice, but probably only to take away some points from the leaders. Southern Methodist and Texas Christian are expected to score but nol to figure toward anybody's tille hones. A comparison of best performances recorded this season show Texas and the Aggies with an edge or even chances in six events each and Arkansas' Razorbacks w ith best or even chances in five. At least four new records may be written into the books. Little Jerry Thompson of Texas will try for three of them. Thompson has run two miles in 9:30.0— almost two seconds under the record: The mile in 4:17.4 (4.14.8 in a relay) — 41 seconds -belter than the conference mark, and the mile in 1:53 (in a relay) —'eight-tenths of a second under the record. Texas promises to break the auarter-mile relay record of 41.4. Just last week the Longhorns ran this event in 412. The 100-yard dash record isn't expected lo fall because to do il somebody would have to equal the world's mark of 9.4. However, prospects are good that it will be tied since three runners already have done 9.5 — Webb Jay of Texas A. & M., Aubrey Fowler of Arkansas and Bill Martinson of Baylor These best marks for Ihe season show what may be expected in the big meet at Waco (runner-up marks given whose close): 100-yard dash — Bill Martinson, Baylor; Aubrey Fowler, Arkansas; Webb Jay, A. & M., 9.5. 120-yard high hurdles — Clyde Scoll, Arkansas, .and Bill Cummins, Rice, 14.2 (Cummins lias been injured and oul of aclion for several weeks); Augusl Erfurth, Rice 14.3.

A- gainsl such a background, the remarkable ovation Washington gave Mexico's President Aleman is even more impressive. . Written accounts of Mr. Alem'an's arrival in the capital give the unmistakable impression that his welcome was truly spontaneous and heartfelt. There are evident -reasons for. this. Mr. Aleman is S5he first Mexican president Ir/visit' Washinglon. He is a pleasanl, personable gentleman. 'And the cordial reception thai he and his people accorded President Truman created a warm feeling of friendly anlici- palion for the Mexican president's return visit. There are also deeper reasons which many in the crowd must have felt, even if they did nol express them. Those reasons have to do with pride, both in Mexico and the U. S. And we believe most A. ^nericans share the sentiments expressed in Washington's greeting. President Aleman's visit is tangible proof lhal Mexico has al lasl escaped from the unhappy, bloody tradition of Latin-American polities' Mr. Aleman is a slalusman", not a soldier—the first non-military man to head his country's government, he is a lawyer and has served as a senator and as a state governor. He was chosen for office in a democratic, non-violent election. He represents his people, not a military clique. gj America may be grateful an:l properly proud that Mexico has proved lo be an apt p.ipil of tho American democratic tradition. For communism and fascism are rampant in most countries south of Mexico. Communism and fascism have sought lo control Mexico, too, and they have lost. Mexico has chosen democracy. And with thai choice the old feelings of hostility, resentment, and suspicion between Mexico and her neighbor to the north have almost /cached ihe vanishing point. -T Those feelings were the result of mutual faults and misunderstandings.

Ismet Inoun of Turkey announced today that Turkey will use the $100,000,000 American loan for military purposes and will seek a loan from Ihe international bank for economic development. Inonu stated in a telegraphic in- i tervicw that Turkey was unwilling lo discuss granting any outside power a base .in the Dardanelles or any other question of Turkish territorial integrity or sovereignly.

Phoenix, Ariz., May 12 — (IP) — Winnie Ruth Judd, who killed t'.vo women and shipped their dismembered bodies to Los Angeles in a trunk in 1931, cscaocd early ioday from the state hospital for the insane, Dr. John A.

Dr. Larson used the word "con- nivances" in explaining escape of llv-' 1 41-year old murderess Ho said she was believed lo have useci a Key which opened two doors, one on the second floor — which allowed her to descend a stairway — and another on the ground level. A gate on Iho north side of the hospital grounds was found open, Dr. Larson said. Officers immediately were sent to bus stations, Ihe airport and railroad slalion as a widespread search for the "Tiger Woman" got under way. However, il was considered possible lhal an automobile might have been wailing outside the grounds for the red-haired former njrse. Deputy Sheriff Buck Stockton took iv.'o bloodhounds lo Ihe hospital grounds but they failed to pick up her trail. Dr. Larson said Mrs. Judd had been "very unhappy" since he moved her from the infirmary to new quarters 10 days ago. He said she had "tco many libcrlies" in the infirmary. Two attendants on duty did not see Mrs. Judd as she slipped through Ihe building, one of the main structures of the stale hospital, on the edge of the city. "The woman attendant on daty on the second floor had to look after 46 patients," Dr. Larson said. Mrs. Judd shot her roommates, *<jvies Anne LeRoi and Hedvig Samuclson to death in a house tney occupied Oct. 10, 1931. Their dismembered bodies were stuffed in'o trunks and shipped to Los Angeles.

He added that the "foregoing (applied equally) to Japan." The Soviel news commentator went on lo say that "uart of (Japanese) industry, specifically the military part, would be entirely destroyed, while the other part, which can produce for peaceful ends, should supply reparations for countries that suffered.

By MA'X HAFJRESON South Favored in Freight Rate Ruling Washington, May 12 —(IP)— Bv a 7-2 vole, the supreme court today upheld an Interstate Commerce Commission order boosting cerlain freight rates 10 per cent in north- e-istern states and dropping them 10 per cent in southern stales east 01 me "Kockics. The lales affected are the so- called class rates, applying to manufactured products, .Justice Jackson, one of the two dissenting justices, estimated the decision will add 350,000,000 annually to freight charges paid by iiorineaslerii snippers. The other dissenting juslice was Frankfurter. Justice Douglas wrote the majority decision which sustained the south's long-argued contention that the present 'freight rate srucure has pu .. at a disadvanage and slowed industrial development in that section. The record makes oul a strong ease, Douglas asserled, for an inference thai natural disadvantages alone "are not responsible for the retarded development of the south and tiio west." Jackson declared that what is being clone is to impose a "surtax" on the people of the northeast and wilhout authority from Congress. Finally, he leveled the charge that Ihe government "frankly advocates this new concept of discrimination as necessary to some redistribution of population in relation to resources that will reshape the nation's social, economic and perhaps its political life more nearly to its heart's desire." •l-i'-k-on and Frankfurter read | their dissents to a crowded court room, Jackson adlibbing the com- i inent thai "this majority decision | is on the same theory as when you put lead on a fast horse to slow it ] down." He also referred several tint's to "handicap rates." Frankfurter compared the result of Ihe case lo "burning down 'ihe barn to roast a pig." Douglas, ill wilh a cold, did not attend the court session. His opinion was road for him by Justice Burton. Thi 1 commission in May, 1945 found the freight rate structure dis j criminated against the south on al- mosi all manufactured articles and ordered ihe changes as the firsl sieu toward equalizing rates, The commission planned as o second slep lo work out "national uniformity in the classification of freight, and a greater degree of Continued on Page Two and the Aiab qour.tries today brought the wartime; record -ofj.the exiled grand mufti of Jerusarenfi into the United Nations debate ft op| the Holy Land, "• ' >® The "agency told the general sembly's 55-nation political corak,-,,. mittee that a Soviet proposal £or*r!| study of immediate Palestine jnd^fill pendence ,".loads the dice heavily,'' against the Jews," I pcp& Moshe Shertok spoke for t h ~>** agency, after Fans El Khoury „ Syria, keynotmg a new Arab move/ declared his country jvoold be^ sound by no U, N. solution for th$£ Holy Land except ciealion of an,j- independent Palestine state.
