gatherings which visited the in ¬ ternational struggle in which Rpinard bowed to Sarazen and that well remembered special In which Whiskaway climbed to greatness by decisively defeating Morvich MorvichThe The running ground and other parts of fair Latonia were at their best The infield sparkled with beauteous shrubs and bloom possessing plants too numerous to mention Old Glory rolled limply on a soft breeze at the top of the infield staff staffTraffic Traffic difficulties resulted in the late ar ¬ rival of no small number of devotees but the farreaching ever squirming throng was in
