Hop Derby
ists Record
eld of Fillies
avorie s Scratghe
In Run for (.ups
eteran observers are united in
the opinion this year's J-Hop
Derby provided the classiest field
of fillies since the record year of
'08 in Ann Arbor's annual run for
th-e orchids.
Some of the nation's top jockeys
were on hand to pilot the fancy
fillies around the gruelling I-M
course, but none- had worse luck
than little Eddie Parcaro, who
lose to guide Molly Homeatthree,
a cutie with a lot of early foot, but
no stamina, instead of "the Lady
who didn't Give a Damn," the
eventual winner.
Flly Fancier
Lord Cecil Freudingham, the
celebrated filly fancier, was called
a ay on business just before the
Classic and was forced to with-
draw his entry, all seven, an
entry which included the winter-
book favorite, Miss Harriet.
-One of the new features of this
year's race was the trombone op-
erated starting gate which got
the first heat off to a sliding start.
With starters Dorsey and Dun-
hm in charge the front runners
set a hot early pace, but as the
front runners failed the Stop-
son-(and others) filly moved into
a commanding lead.
That pretty little swifty ap-
peared to have the thing in the
satchel until she lost her jockey
and got herself caught in a pocket
around the refreshment bar turn.
Roan Reminiscing
The form players were leery
about the J-Hop Derby, claiming
they never know how to handicap
filllies. The historians of their
group still talk about the 1932
Derby when the two leaders, Alice
Fluegown and the "Lady in Blue,"
were breezing along in front until
they noticed they were wearing
the same colors. They sulked
themselves out of the money.
Well, the '48 derby is now his-
tory, too, and as usual it was a
great day for the mudders.

Tackle Blind
School in Fall
The University of Michigan
football team will oppose the Ar-
kansas Institute for the Blind this
year, Coach Fritz Plymouth an-
nounced today.
The announcement came fol-
lowing the failure of negotiations
with the University of Pennsyl-
vania, which left a vacancy in this
year's schedule.
Meanwhile, doubt arose over the
eligibility of the Blind Institute's
players, Informed sources have
charged the Institute with pro-
fessionalism, claiming that most
of its players are American League
In the event that negotiations
with the Institute prove unsuc-
cessful, Coach Plymouth intends
to begin arrangements to field his
team against Bryn Mawr.
