TITLE OAK SURPRISE WINNER Defeats Eldee in Feature Race at Montreal Track for His Third Straight Win of Meeting. MONTREAL, Que., June 22.— Title Oak, improved eight-year-old unsexed son of Title and Oaktown Belle, raced to a surprise victory in the running of the Province of Quebec Handicap, feature of the half-holiday card. Miss K. Lauras Eldee, shouldering 124 pounds and winner of her six previous starts, was in second place before E.

Scara Glen, which was away slowly, raced to the leaders and was in third place before Eldee. Rounding the turn Vitella was through and Title Oak went into the lead and Eldee moved up on the inside.

Slipper King was far back in the early stages and closed a large gap to take third position. A
