BEWITHUS FOR PREAKNESS To Carry Bradley Colors in Big Pimlico Feature — Donation of 0,000 for Flood Relief. LEXINGTON, Ky., May 2— E. R. Bradley, master of Idle Hour Farm, returned from New York in time to witness the running of the fifth race, in which his Boo and Bewithus, respective Kentucky Derby and Preakness starters, took part. Bewithus is intended for shipment to Pimlico Friday. He will be in charge of Barry Shannon and owner Bradley-will journey to the Maryland course to see the colt perform. Present plans are for Bewithus not to be a starter in the Kentucky Derby. Mr. Bradley is optimistic that Boo and Buddy Bauer, which will carry his colors in the Derby, will render a good account of themselves. He holds Buddy Bauer in higher regard than he does the Louisiana Derby winner. One of the first things that Mr. Bradley did on arrival was to send a telegram to Col. John I. Sullivan to advise James Murphy, manager of the Fair G rounds at New Orleans, to contribute for the Louisiana Jockey Club the sum of 0,000 to the relief fund for Louisiana flood sufferer*. The Fair Grounds plant has already been tendered for use by the flood refugees. The Fair Grounds has approximately 1,500 stalls and would serve easily as a temporary sheltering place for the homeless flood sufferers. The massive grandstand also would serve as a splendid sheltering place. The 200 acres of highland in St. Bernard Parish that is also owned by the Louisiana Jockey Club, has been tendered for use of the flood sufferers. ;
