Arlington Notebook By J. J. MURPHY Big Afternoon in Post and Paddock Horses for Courses Adage Up Again Eddie Sue, Company B. Case in Point ARLINGTON PARK, Arlington Heights, 111., June 25. — Wednesday was a big day in the Post and Paddock Club with many jolly parties being staged. Judge John P. OConnell celebrating his birthday, had in his party his daughters Mrs. Thomas Hammon and Mrs. Hubert Ker-nan, B Jr., the latter from New York. Also his sister Mrs. Joseph Keogh, of Sacramento, Calif. As the date was the twenty-fourth, several wr«gered on 2 and •4 in the Daily Double and that combination won. Four beautiful widows, Mrs. "Walter Howell, Mrs. B. G. Brennan, Mrs. W. J. Garvy, and Mrs. A. W. Mansfield were enjoying each others company. Mrs. John B. OConnor, Sr., was celebrating her thirty-third wedding anniversary and her daughter-in-law, Mrs. John OConnor, Jr., celebrating a birthday. In their party were Mrs. Edward Fitzgerald and Mrs. Thomas J. McVey. Dr. and Mrs. John B. ODon-oghue and Mr. and Mrs. William E. Larsen were present, as were Mr. and Mrs. George Sullivan, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Sullivan, Mrs. John Dalton, Mrs. John Gelderman, Mrs. Edward Fisher and Miss Barbara McVey. . .George Carr, president of the Post and Paddock Club, had as guests Mrs. Hart Smith, of Louisville, Ky.; Mrs. Robert Adams Carr;- Mme. Briere, wife of the French consul and her daughter, Mile. Yvonne Briere, and Mrs. Nevins Kirk. Among dthers were Mr. and Mrs. Thomas B. Peck and Mrs. Neil Hurley, Jr. John D. Allen, president of the Arlington Park Jockey Club was lunching with vice-president J. B. Gallagher. That "horses for courses" thing has been borne out here in the past couple of days. Arab Actress beat Eddie Sue by four lengths at Hawthorne but Eddie Sue romped to her in the Artful. Everett Jr., ran his end of the Joliet Stakes at Hawthorne well over a full second better than did Company B. in the other division of the same race, but Company B. had little trouble trimming Everett Jr. here... We are doubtful about Bub-Wey ever reaching the stature of any of the highly regarded Calumet fillies of the past. Her race in the Artful was nothing". . .What a claim Marion Van-Berg made when he haltered Vantage last year. Vantage, as well as The Eagle, who* beat him a nose, ran in track record time for the mile and sixteenth xn the turf, and the name of another Chicago favorite, Volcanic, was erased from the list of i record-holders. . .Three Calumet horses now hold track records here— Citation, the five furlongs; Hill Gail, the six furlongs; and Coaltown, the mile and one-eighth. It will be interesting to note how close Hill Gail comes to Equipoises mile record if he wins the Equipoise Mile. The mark is 1:34%. Equipoise carried 128. Hill Gail will have the same package. The American and worlds record for one. mile is 1:33% established by Citation at Golden Gate Fields. Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Herff were up from Memphis, Term., to cheer for Mimi Mine in Wednesdays Artful Stakes.. Mrs. Dan Gallagher, wife of the late well-known telegrapher, was among the mid-week visitors... Many were interested in the recent return to action of Lextown, who won the Crete Inaugural Handicap and the Edward • J. Fleming Memorial, in 1950... Stop and Look and Brush Bum, a couple of nominees for the Stars and Stripes Handicap, arrived from Delaware Park. . .Hueso, winner of the Shevlin Stakes at Aqueduct last Saturday, is expected to be here to compete in the Arlington Classic. . .Track superintendent Clarence Brinkman is mighty proud of his new water-wagon, which is just about the best sprinkler we have ever seen. Clarence, a handy man with tools and such, worked out all the details of the device himself. It emits a spray that resembles a miniature Niagara Falls. . .Louis L. Schlossers three-year-old Poo Bah is an additional nominee for the Warren Wright Memorial Handicap. James Norris, owner of Jamie K., was a recent visitor. . .Lawrence Bogenschutz, Hawthorne racing secretary, is expected to arrive shortly to confer with horsemen having thoroughbreds named for ike Hawthorne Gold Cup.
