Warrensville Heights, Ohio, May 12.— The Cranwood Park meeting opens tomorrow for a 19-day run. Post time for the first race tomorrow is 2:15 p. m., with twilight racing on weekdays starting at 4 p. m. daily. Racing secretary Linus Pierce has arranged an attractive program for opening day with the New Cranwood Handicap holding the spotlight. This feature, for three-year-olds and upward at six furlongs, has a purse value of ,200 and has attracted eight sprinters. Pierce had a tough task of assigning weights to the nominees as they have campaigned at various tracks throughout the country this spring. Mr. and Mrs. G. Y. Bookers consistent Lawless Miss has been given top impost of 122 pounds and will probably be installed a slight favorite in the wagering. *The six-year-old bay daughter of Gallahadion won 11 races last year and earned over 5,000. She arrived from Lincoln Downs and trainer Booker has her in tip-top condition for her encounter here tomorrow. Her most dangerous opponent appears to be Clatter-buck and Covingtons Weatherman.

Steve Utz has named his capable handicap performer. King Pine. The latter has a world of early foot and may be hard to catch should, he break alertly. J. P.

The King Cole mare has met stiffer competition than some of those she will engage tomorrow. W. Hoylers More Flame has shown nothing commendable to date, but may be closer than he figures on past performances. Three other six-furlong events in addition to the feature, three at one and one-sixteenth miles and a dash at five furlongs round out the card.
