Takes Takes Fleming Fleming Memorial; Memorial; Real Real Delight Delight in in Third Third Oaks Oaks Victory Victory Aarons and Hokin Colt Beats Out Tottenham, Inseparable Eads Substitutes for Ailing Dodson on Victor; Crowd of 20,730 Sees Lincoln Card By J. J. MURPHY HAWTHORNE, Cicero, 111., May 24. The good four-year-old sprinter Andy B. W., making his second start of the year, came through with a very impressive victory in the Edward J. Fleming Memorial Handicap here this afternoon. Third choice in the wagering, the son of Psychic Bid scooted to the front soon after the start and was never less than a length and a half away from his closest pursuer after the field had raced an eighth. He won by three lengths from Tattenham, an outsider, and one of the best horses in the William Hal Bishop barn. Inseparable, one of the two-horse Hasty House Farm entry whose Wine List and Roman Bath ran one-two in the event last year, was third, and his running mate, Seaward, was fifth. The winner is owned by L. Aarons and B. Hokin, a couple of Chicago sportsmen, and was ridden by Wendell Eads, who was substituting for the ailing Doug Dodson. The Fleming Memorial brought out a field of 10 and Spur On was the favorite, witv the Hasty House entry second choice. Quihi went to the front at the outset, with Roman Sandal and ndy B. W. showing in that order, but it was not long before the eventual winner was in front. Quihi was in closest attendance down the back-stretch, with Tattenham third and the position of that pair reversed as they h --"ed for home. False an- Inseparable were closest of the others, while Spur On was .badly outrun. Entering the stretch jockey Eads gave Andy B. W. free rein and the colt pulled out to a five-length lead, while Tattenham shook off Quihi and was in the clear in second place. Race Nets Winner ,975 As the field was as- far away from home as the sixteenth pole, it was clear that the first, second, and third, horses would finish just that way. Andy B. W. was running easily in front and Tattenham, although his rider must have known he could not catch the leader, was a good second, and Inseparable was well in front of False. Quihi had dropped out of it. Spur On f in- JOCKEY WENDELL EADS Guided !

W. paid 2.00 straight and the ,975 net to the winner was his first earnings of the year. He took down over 0,000 last season when he started 17 times and won eight races. He is trained by Ike Weil, who developed him. The racing strip was in the worst possible condition, being deep and covered with slop,, and the thoroughbreds either liked it or they didnt. The first five winners scored by wide margins, while some well-liked horses who would surely have been Continued on Page Thirtv-One Andy B.

A crowd of 20,730 was in attendance. Smoke Screen, a colt who started 15 times as a two-year-old last season and failed to win a race, came through with his third success as a three -year-old when he clicked in the Peabody Memorial Prep, which was the supporting feature. The son of Drawby had his "hands full" beating out the Buddah Stables Dance Nsing, who ran a rather remarkable race. Happy Go Lucky, the odds-on choice and the colt who finished seventh in the Kentucky Derby, -was third, and Stuyvesant was fourth in the six-horse race. The others were Old Fiddle and Dark Count, who finished in that order. The distance was one and one-sixteenth miles and jockey Don Scurlock sent Dance Nsing to the front rounding the first turn. As they entered the backstretch, Dance Nsing was leading by a narrow margin with Happy Go Lucky close up on the outside and being hard held, while Adams had a stout hold on Dart Count, the second choice, who was running in fifth place. As thec event became more torrid many expected Dance Nsing to crack, but he showed no signs of fatigue and kept traveling along to shake off Old Fiddle and engage Happy Go Lucky in the stretch. When Happy Go Lucky headed Dance Nsing an eighth out many expected the latter to crack at last, but instead of so doing he came -again to take command after entering the final sixteenth. Meanwhile Smoke Screen, who had been reserved a few lengths removed in the early part, was making a run in the middle of the track and he caught both Happy Go Lucky and Dance Nsing about 30 yards from home. It now appeared for certain as if Dance Nsing was beaten, but he came once again near the end and lacked a head of getting up to take the major por-" tion of the ,500 purse Dance Nsing defeated Happy Go Lucky by three parts of a length for second place. Jockey Ken Church rode Smoke Screen, who is owned by the Reverie Knoll Stable of Freeman Keyes, of Chicago. The winner paid 6.80 and it was his first start since the Kentucky Derby in which he finished twelfth. The Daily Double paid 1.80 when Park Pigeon, the favorite, won the opening race and the rather lightly regarded Legs took the second race. Jockey Steve Brooks, making one of his infrequent appearances since his arrival here, was in the saddle on Park Pigeon, and he did not catch much mud as the six-year-old carried him to the front early and remained there throughout. Legs, representing the Mikel Farm, finished eight lengths to the good in the second, thereby making a show of his opposition. The favored Tiger Tom finished far back. Apprentice William Cox rode Legs. Jockey Johnny Adams added to his score when he had the six-year-old Flaming Bush in front all the way in the six and one-half furlongs fourth race. The favored Bogalusa could do no better than fourth.
