Among the mainstays for the Reds will be Martin Setter, unde- feated half-miler in the 1943 cam- paign and victorious with no set- backs in two meets this season, and Harold Pauschert, who does a fancy job in clearing the high and low hurdles, besides running a fast 200 yard race. Many other Red thinlies are mak- ing marked progress in their specialties, Peel announced. Aiding Peel is Coach L. E.

The Racine test has out-grown its quadrangular stature and mush- roomed into a six-team affair un- der the managership of Coach Clark Van Galder. Kenosha is the only important school hereabouts not included in the nearby classic. Madison Athletes Set Good Marks Four Madison high school ath- letes have posted the best records to date this season in their respec- tive events a compilation of re-i stilts of prep track meets held throughout the state this year. The time of 4:32.5 by Jack Kam- met of West in the mile last week its the outstanding individual feat. i Other top state marks recorded by [Capital City preps are 2:05.2 by Charles L'Hommedieu of West in the 880, the throw of 137 feet 10 inches by Bill Knechtges of East in the discus and the leap of 11 feet 7 inches by Jerry Yeller of West in the pole vault. Is Remarkable Feat In the mile event of the West- East meet at Camp Randall, Kam- mer's 4:32.5 was followed by Bob Burns, East. and Dick Beck, West, under 4:33 in that order. That was a remarkable showing. These three Melton in Navy New York --(U.P.) Right Handez Rube Melton of be Brooklyn Dodg- ers pitching staff has been accepted for service in the navy and expects to be called within three weeks. Melton, who has worked in two games and holds a record of none won and one lost this season, said he would stay with the club until he was called. relay at the Drake Relays with the addition of another man who wouldn't have had to run any fast- er than 5:12. And 5:12 milers are easy to find, even in high schools. Iowa State's winning team in the four.mile event at Drake was lg:51.5; in other words, they aver- aged around 4:42.9. At the Penn Relays, Michigan won easily in 18:12.5. The Wolver- ines averaged a little over 4:33.1. Only one man on that Michigan team made faster time than Karn. mer; that was Bob Hume with !4:24.4 effort. Times of the others i were: Ross Hume, 4:32.7; Dick 'Barnard, 4:37.1; and Johnny Pru- due, 4:38.5. Joe Szelonskl, Kenosha's gifted miler now in the armed forces, was clocked in 4:33 in the sectional at Racine Park last year, the best recorded in Wisconsin for 1943 by for the roses. What pored the other owners was that the son of Good Goods, sped the mile in 1:37.1 -- only one and two fifths seconds off the track record for the distance. The triumph was more ImpreS- sive, too, because the colt, with Jockey Farrel Zutelt riding well-rated race, was pulling way from second place Broad Grin when he hit the wire. Broad Grin had been favored because he finished second .to Lucky Draw in the second division of the Wood Memorial and was rated, long with Greentree Stable's Sir Up, as one of that barn's derby hopes, Greentree Trainer Jack Gaver, who previously had announced that the derby favorite Stir Up was ready to go to the Bluegrass classic, said that Broad Grin's failure to take the trial probably would cause the colt's elimina- tion from the derby. It also ap- peared probable that the rest of the trial field  W. C. Davis' Rockwood Boy, J. V. Maggie's American Eagle. Neville Dunn's Fire Power and Mrs. Mary C. Stephenson's Marksom -- who finished in that order, would be scratched from Saturday's big race. Broadcloth's showing had es- blished him as a real threat. Off poorly in fifth place, the colt moved up to thii-d at the green striped quarter pole and then surged to one length lead at the three-quarter mile mark. From there on it was no contest. Run- ning strong, the colt had forged a four length lead as they hit the turn for home and he breezed his red and white silks under the wire six lengths in front and drawing away -- and still had plenty left. Enough, most horse- men felt, that he would have given any of the derby favorites a stiff run for the money over the additional quarter mile that makes up the derby distance. As Broadcloth boomed into contention, the rest of the derby favorites, including the newly arrived Pensive, rested in their barns along the backstretch. Trainer Ben Jones, who brought Pensive in from Baltimore, de. clared that the Calumet colt deft. nitely will run for the roses. "Spec" Dunne, trainer of Gay Bit, galloped his charge mile and also declared it in. Elorter, A. C. Ernst's by colt, drew yesterday's major attention from the hardboot when he went the full mile and a quar. ter derby distance in :072-5. Autocrat toured it in 2:08 1-5 and Brief Sigh went the route in slow 2:092-5.

He is playing :plenty of first Iase with Leon Cul berson replacing him in center field. Jim Wilson is Coach of Reds Chicago -- (/P)  Jimmy Wil. son, for three years manager of the Chicago Cubs, had a new baseball job today -- coach of the Cincinnati Reds -- a post he relinquished when he came to the Cub organization. Wilson's appointment, coming day after he resigned as Cub boss, was announced after a con. terence with General Manager Warren C. Giles and Manager Bill McKechnie of the Reds. Wilson, 43 years old and for 20 years a catcher-coach-manager in the National league, will take over his new duties in St. Louis Friday. zero turned in slow 1:482-5. Valley Flares did a mile and an eighth in 1:593-5 and Challenge Me galloped six furlongs in 1:14. Jake Kraft, former South Bend high school ace, just signed by the Cincy Reds, is a switch hitter from choice, not self-defense. The sturdy right-hander won his own ball ame with couple of homers one!each game won and a point for day last spring, every 50 pins toppled a prep.
