J. MURPH Y HAWTHORNE, Cicero, 111., "May 20.— Jockey Johnny Adams, who rode five straight winners to close out the Saturday program here, made it five for five again today while accepting that number of mounts in the first seven races for the remarkable score of 12 winners out of his last 13 mounts. Adams sensational performances are a modern record on Chicago courses and may never again be equalled. Adams, was a ball of fire in the early races when he connected with victories in the Daily Double to make it nine wins in his last ten attempts. Both of Adams mounts, Rebel Raider, in the opening race, and Honor Deck, in the second, were well played and each won by a fair margain to complete a double of 7.80. Adams brought both his charges from behind and he was forced to overcome interference while riding Honor Deck. The gelding was tangled up around the far turn and Adams was forced to take up and, come to the outside. He was in the clear with Rebel Raider when the latter chose to make his move in the stretch. No Mount in Third Adams, who did not have a mount in the third race, completed a perfect score for early afternoon in winning with Speedy Baby in the fourth. He placed the mare well up in the first part of the six-furlorig affair and booted her to the front in the last eighth. The daughter .of Eternal Bull, who is owned by H. D. Maggio, of Chicago, trimmed Rusty Lad, the early pacemaker, by a good, margin with Staggering In finishing third. The STj-year-old jockeys four successes of the day came on Asphalt, the second choice in the Dellor claiming race, which came sixth on the bill, and was the best race on the program. Bernard Landy, of Chicago, for whom Adams rode three winners Saturday, is the owner of Asphalt, who paid .80. Adams won his fifth race of the day and remained unbeaten on the afternoon when he piloted Bernard Landys Flying Bold home first in the seventh race. A field of eight sought honors in the Dellor, which was at six furlongs, and Robust was a slight favorite over Asphalt. However, it was Asphalt who went out to make the pace, and while Robust was in closest proximity he could not get up speed enough to menace the Landy mare. Asphalt turned for home showing a good margin, and when Robust and Light Moon jostled each other in the stretch her Continued on Page Thirty-One Adams Boots Home Five More Hawthorne Winners .

The steady drizzle of early morning kept the racing, strip in rather dull, condition, but it dried out to good by the first race, and became slightly better as the afternoon progressed.

To close observers it seemed that Captain Carver was never prepared in the gate, and he was off last in the field, of 12. He ran the best race of any of the contestants. Jockey Adams did not have a mount in the fifth race and Kenny Church was the successful saddlesmith. Church was aboard the odds-on Porters Broom, but was required to bring all his reinsmanship. into play to hold College at the end.
