. The highly-publicized night racing venture at Portland Meadows has
struck a discordant note among many turfmen, and a group of the big
shots of the sport of kings such names as the Wideners, Woodwards,
Vanderbilts, Headleys. Whitneys and duPonts have banded together to
keep horse racing in the sunlight and away from the mazdas.
The far-flung Racing Protective bureau's now code of standards
for tracks puts the frown on night galloping, and Portland Meadows
. won't be under the sanction of the Thoroughbred Racing association.
Neither Is Bay Meadows down on the San Francisco peninsula.
. Bill Kyne. the Portland Meadows promoter, has lined up a galaxy of
reasons why floodlight racing is okay. He (even goes so far as to say that
the bangtails will be breathing purer air at night, which seems rather
foolish because the horses are bound by nature to inhale and exhale every
few seconds, daylight or dark, and that's not going to be changed by
having them gallop at night.

34-ycar-om shipping clerk whose
heaviest duties are pushing a pencil
tuny be the flint American to win
Olympic weightlifting championship
next year.
If he is, Bob Hoffman, who has
been looking for a winner since
1933, can sit uack and relax.
It's no accident that Shipping
Clerk Frank Spellman Is an em
ploye here at Hodman's bur urll
equipment company. Virtually any
one capable oi lifting a 10-pound
suck gets the call from Hoffman,
for he may be the one who will
turn the trick.
But Spellman proved he could
compete with the best of them. As
a OI he won the British welghlllfl
iug championship In London in 1944.
He Is also the holder of the United
States light heavyweight weight
lifting title.
Following his discharge from the
army, Hoffman Invited Spellman to
come to York where he works at
the plant and trains with other
potential champions.
In International meets up lo now,
Hoffman's boys have won tram
titles but never the trophy for Indi
vidual competition.
Last year In Paris, Hoffman
groomed Mlddlewelghts John Ter
pak and Spellman were second and
third to Egypt's El Tounl. Russia's
Novak Is present world's heavy
weight champion. The U. S. does
not have a comparable contender in
the top division.
Hoffman has found over the years
that a welghtllfter develops belter
when training for competition. As
there is a scarcity of competitors
and virtually no school or college
competition, almost all meets are
privately sponsored. Hoffman has
been the sport's chief promoter. (
Tne next International meet is in
Philadelphia. Sept. 36 and 37. Spell
man Is in training now to compete
with llght-heavywelghts from of
other nations.
