Those from San Diego who are on hand to "cover" the Derby are Nelson Fisher, turf editor. The Union; George Herrick, sports editor, The Tribune; Phil Norman, turf editor, The Journal; Christy Gregg, sports editor. The Union; Bob Angus, turf editor, The Tribune, and Ken Bojens, sports editor, The Journal. From Los Angeles are Paul Lowry, turf editor, The Times; Maurice Bernard, turf editor, The Examiner; John Beekman, turf editor, The Daily News, and Jim Mitchell, turf editor, The Herald Express.
