By HARVEY T. WOODRUFF.
Chicago Tribune-Omaha Be Leaned Wire.
Louisville, Ky., May 7. "Behave
Yourself !'
, Those words are not an cxclama
tory warning, but the name of the
winner of the 47th renewal of the
Kentucky derby, decided this after
noon at Churchill Downs, before a
crowd of 50,000 spectators, who ac
claimed the victory of a Kentucky
owned and Kentucky-bred youngster
in a field of 12 starters representing
the best 3-year-olds in the whole
country.
Behave Yourself, a brown colt by
Marathan-Miss Ringlets, won by a
head from his stable companion,
tilack Servant, which acted as pace
maker for the entire distance of one
and one-quarter miles traversed in
2:04 1-5.
The pair ran stride for stride from
, the eighth pole, while Prudery, the
crack filly of the Whitney stable,
which, coupled with Tryster, was
public choice at 11 to 10, was a dis
tant' third, six lengths behind the
leaders.
Great Day for Owner.
It was a creat dav for owner E R.
Bradley, whom we referred to fa
miliarly as Ed when there was rac
ing in Chicago, where he owned the
JUel frado hotel and also soonsored
a tailoring establishment on Madi
son street. 1 he race itself was worth
$38,450 net to the winner with $10,000
to the second horse, and no owner
of a derby starter allows his horses
to run unbacked and Bradley thought
lie had a chance.
Two dollar mutuels on the Brad
ley pair paid $19.30, $13 and $5.90
and vindicated the tradition that firsts
do not win this race, which has been
captured only seven out of 47 times
by public choices. As showing the
- uncertainty of races, however, Black
Serrant was more fancied than Be
have Yourself, both by his owner
and the stable jockey.
Played Hunch.
On Thursday tho writer was ris
cussing with Bradley the chances of
his entry in a party which included
the wife of a Chicagoan prominent in
the sporting world. , This lady had
induced her husband to play a hunch
for her in the winter book to the
extent of $10 and stood to win $700
on Behave Yourself. Of course, in
the winter book, entries do not go
and you must name your horse.
Accordingly Mrs. Hunch player
wished to know her chances and ex
plained her wager to Bradley. He
replied:
"I think my entry has a chance
becau.'t favorites have been beaten
before. We will, of course, win
'with either if we can, but I am sorry
to tell you that I regard Black Serv
ant as "four lengths better than Be
have Yourself. It. might happen,
however, that the pace would use up
the others andv Behave Yourself
might come on and win." '
jockey Lyke shared his employer's
opinion. He was given the choice
of mounts as the premier stable
jockey and was told a fee of $5,000
awaited him if a stride the .winner,
and a fee of $1,000 if he was on the
loser, but the stable won. However,
Lyke chose Black Servant.

and semi-pro player, and for the past

Southeast Corner of RickarcPs
Boxing Grounds Is Hoodoo Spot
A jinx. last winter hovered over
the southeast corner of the ring in
Madison Square Garden, where Tex
Rickard boked four championship
contests. Of the four, that corner
harbored but one winner.
When, Joe Welling came from
Chicago to question Benny Leon
ard's claim to the lightweight title,
it was from that southeast corner
he emerged to be knocked kicking
in the fourteenth round. Bill Bren
nan defied fate and nestled in that
corner, doing fairly ' well for -'11
rounds, only to step a short distance
from that fatal angle in the twelfth

10 Amateur Games
Scheduled For
This Afternoon
Rain Stopped La9t Week's
Contests North Omaha
Boosters and Townsend
Gunners to Mix.
Follower of Omaha amateur bast
ball will flock in great numbers to
the various playing fields this after
noon to witness the ten contests to
be staged by the teams of the City,
class A, American, class B and Gate.
City, class C loops, playing under
the banner of the Municipal Ama
teur Base Ball association.
Since the contests i nthfse three
circuits were postponed last Sunday,
because of "Old Jupiter" interfering,
the fans were robbed of the oppor
tunity to see a number of real intor
esting conflicts, but today's program
will more than make up the lost
chaiice.
Four Teams Tied.
Second place honors in the City,
class A loop between the Riggs Op
tical Co-Drive-It-Yoursclf and the
Bowen Furniture Co.-Knights of
Columbus warriors arc at stake this
afternoon. All four of these teams '
are tied with a .500 percentage and
since considerable rivalry exists be
tween them two hard-fought contests
are onticipatcd. v.
Although the Townsend Gun Co.
have met their "Waterloo" in the
first two games of the season, Man
ager Bunny Holland announced last
nighf that they will stage a "come
back" this afternoon and pull their
opponents the North Omaha Boost
ers, who are leading the league with
a clean slate, down a notch.
Krupski To Pitch. '
Leo Krupski is slated to do the
heaving for the Gunners, while Man
ager Moore will either send Farlet or
McCarthy to the mound. Miller park
will be the scene of the Townsend- .
North Omaha Booster clash, while
Riverview park and .Thirty-second
and Dewey avenue will be the battle
grounds of the two contests.
Interest is also at high pitch in the
contests this afternoon in the Ameri
con, class B circuit. All of the
teams are staging a neck-to-neck
race and are fighting hard to cop the
flag, so a quartet of interesting
battles are expected to take place.
The Dold Packing Co., a new team
in the field this season who are lead
ing the league with two straight
victories, are slated to cop the pen
nant. They have a "crackerjack"
of a team and have an easy time
with their opponents thus far. This
afternoon the Packers will mix with
the Phillip Department Store team,
also a South Side aggregation, and it
will be south against south. The '
Packers are favorites, but the rooters
of the Phillip's claim that their fa
vorites will pull the leaders down.
First Game at 1:30
Three, game's are on tap in the Gate
City loop. Leaders of the circuit
will meet the tatl-enders in each of
the games, but nevertheless the fans
should see some real classy -tangles
as the teams are all evenly matched.
The first games of the afternoon's
program will start at 1:30 o'clock v
and the second battles at 3.39 sharp,
weather conditions permitting.
