Rounders Romping Victor In Sussex at Delaware STANTON, Del., June 23.— William Helis Rounders, carrying top weight of 126 pounds as if it were a feather, made a show j of four rivals at Delaware Park today in the eighth running of the mile and a j quarter Sussex Handicap before some 18.000 sweltering fans. Confidently ridden by Fred Remerscheid, the odds-on favorite registered his third straight success, scoring by four and a half lengths and eased up all through the final eighth. His 2:03S was still only four-fifths of a second slower than the track record. Samuel Feinbergs Ariel Flight was a surprising second, two and a half lengths before Christiana Stables Megogo, while Harford and He Rolls completed the field, reduced to five by four late withdrawals. Of this group, Bon Jour was reported suffering from colic.
