• Unable to Contact Woodward; News to Trainer Fitzsimmons NEW YORK, N. Y., June 8. — William Woodward, Jr., owner of Nashua, was away from New York today and could not be contacted for his reactions to the proposed duel between his colt and Swaps. However, immediately after the running of the Preakness on May 28, he discussed the possibility of a match race between Nashua and Swaps with J. Samuel Perlman, editor and publisher of The Morning Telegraph and Daily Racing Form. "Im favorably inclined toward such v a race," said Woodward, "but will give it no consideration until after the Belmont Stakes." James Fitzsimmons, trainer of Nashua, said at Belmont Park today that he knew nothing about the match. "I guess Im a bad reporter," said Mr. Fitz, "but Tm scooped on this. If Mr. Woodward knows anything about this, he forgot to tell me."
