THE SPORTS TRAIL By Dick Lebbs How many of you hoss-rac ing fans think the naming of a nag is as simple as naming a son or a daughter? Don’t be fact, only one in about 30 pro posed labels are accepted by the Jockey Club, the high cou rt of the naming phase of the racing game. Restrictions are gomewhat more rugged than is common ly believed. Names are held to 14 letters and three words. The spaces and punctuation count as letters. Names prohibited are those of famous horses, famous or infamous persons, names used or advertising pur posees, and vulgar, sacrilegi ous obscene names. Lastly, and worst of all,'no name that has been used during the previous 15'years can be repeated. This restriction is the one that is re sponsible for many tags being tossed into the wastebasket. quarter of a million labels are on file with tthe Jockey cl ub. Nearly all are an accumul ation of the last decade and a half. So, you see, the chance of a repeat tag is nil. Two of the nation’s top sta ble owners, the Whitneys and Vanderbilts, are especially ad epept at picking clever names for their thoroghbreds. Some of the best are Hash, by Quest ionaire out of Delicacy; Kitch en Police, by Discovery out of Galley Slave; Song and Dance, from the Baird and Heel and Toe; and By Jove, the get of Rhodes Scholar Explosion. Some very apt names are de rived from one parent instead of a combination of two. Exam ples in this category include Seven Hearts by Grand Slam Gesapo, by Third Degree; Shut Out, from Goose-Egg; Easy Living, out of Summer Time; and Next, from Now What . Although several stories have arisen from the naming game, the best is told by Art hur Daley, New York Times and Atlanta Journal writer. It concerns two Irishmen who where bitter enemies for most of their lives. Finally they rea ched a point where they made peace—at least one of them thought so anyway. The other and more vindictive fellow made what seemed the true re conciliatory gesture. ‘ Pat, he said, “to show what Oi really think of ye, Oi would like your permission to name me finest stallion after ye.” Pat though this was a great idea so he quickly agreed Consequently the breeder of fered free service o his stallion Pat O’Toole, to anyone who would let him name the get of the mating. Thereupon the Stud book suddenly blossomed out with such lines as “A Th ief, by Pat O'Toole;” A Drun kard, by Pat O’Toole”; A Sc oundrel, by Pat O’Toole” and more equally obnoxious labels. CORNHUSKER COMMENT Loren Fry Are you qualified to drive? This may seem a silly quest ion to ask, but it ins't if one considers it from the view point of time spent in learn ing. When you entered' high school and decided that you wanted to learn how to type, you were told that it would take at least a year to become proficient. Upon deciding to become an expeft golf player, you were told by your instructor that it would take a lot of long had work. He also said that if you were lucky, you might be able to shoot a par game within the next ten years. But statistics prove that the average person learned to drive after* about one hour’s instruction by a person who learned the same way. There is a widespread pop ular delusion that it takes less training to drive a 2,500 pound 120-horsepower vehhicle than it does to handling of one of man’s most widely used and most dangerous instruments is practically nil. There are far more golf pros and typing teachers than there are auto driving teachers. There has been a number of pedestrains killed or injdred in Nebraska since the first of the year. Possibly some of the persons struck by cars were partially at fault, but motor ists cannot escape a measure o moral responsibility. For, in the final analysis, a mere pedestrain hasn’t much chance in an argument with an auto mobile. BEAUTICIANS 2nd AN NUAL STYLE REVUE It will be interesting to note the decided change in womens fashions in the brief space of one year. To those who might have attended the fashion re view of the Beauticians one yr. ago, you will note the drastic change in all fashions, and the appearance of the “New Look” which it seems has come to st ay'. Fashions are undoubtedly ultra feminine and most wom en have welcomed the change even though it did mean pract ically a new wardrobe. All wo men have clothes. It is tradit ional so the change gave the excuse which has always been a by word in every house liv ed, I have nothing to wear. A chance to really mean just that dresses are colorful, prints ve ry and as I go on to narrate, let start with the beautifully dres sed women. Mrs. Margaret De an wore a beautiful black coc ktail drape dress. Modies Plum mer wore a sports dress and a suit. Hortense Chambers a big hounds tooth check suit made by herself. Four stone Martins around the neck. Blach Wright nwore a three piece tan suit. Alma Simms wore a green coat self styled. Pauline Williams wore a negligee, long full back green coat.

RAIL-AUTO TRAVEL IN CREASE EXPECTED (NIPS) It is anticipated by railroad officials that the wider use of the rail-auto travel plan for vacationers, which introduced last year, will be even more popular among the Nation’s tourists this summer. Hugh W. Siddall, industry spokesman, who heads a Passenger-Inter territorial Committee has pre dicted that many car owners will leave their own vehicles at ] home this year and take ad vantage of this new program. Under the new procedure, the travelers can reserve a new car at the time they purchase their railroad tickets, and upon arrival at their destination, fi nd it waiting for them. The ar rangements have been made possible through the coopera tion of a nationally known car rental service with outlets in 355 cities throughout the Unit ed States, Canada, and Hawaii.
