12th Ohio Title Race On Saturday at Beulah
Three jockeys who have won the Ohio Championship in previous years are expected to be in action Saturday, Oct. 20, at Beulah Park when this event is offered for the twelfth time. The championship is the highlight of the 44-day meeting, since it carries $15,000 in added money and is contested over the mile and a sixteenth distance. 
Paul A. Ward, currently the leading rider of the session, has won the Ohio Championship twice. He was on Little Imp in 1953 and came back the next season to score with Gulf Stream.
Since Ward is riding in such excellent form now, he'll doubtless have his choice of several mounts in the race and the one he selects will doubtless get a lot of backing. 
Ken Robertson also holds two victories in the Championship to his credit although his go back a little farther than those of Ward. Kenny booted home Thor in 1964 and in 1948 was the winning rider on Beau Nash. 
Third of the present Beulah Park jockeys to win the "big one" is Evan Anyon, who was up on Fair Game in 1951.
When the Championship is run Saturday, the field will be shooting at a time mark of 1:43 1-5 for the mile and a sixteenth, a record set by Darby Dan Farm's Atlanta in 1952 under H. B. Wilson. The time also stands as a track record for the distance. 
As Beulah Park goes into its final days, racing patrons will recall many interesting facts in connection with the meeting. While Ward is now the leading rider, as he was last fall, several others gave him a hot chase and at one time or another Jesse Parsons, Larry Grubb, Harry Holcomb, Jack Fieselman and Jerry Truman held the lead. 
Gene Semler, of Dayton, O., sprang into prominence in the trainers rank. T. H. Stevens, last season's leader, continued to do well and has been the top man most of the way but Semler, unheralded, has sent out a dozen winners and has enjoyed particular success with horses owned by Sally Towne and Wilma Schmelzer of Columbus.
While dates for the 1957 season probably will not be known until January, President and general manager Robert J. Dienst is looking fowrard to next year and has plans for a new administration building and a new paddock arrangement before the gates of Beulah Park open again.

Jim Hadyl's Belt Up in Saturday Go
The MWA junior heavy-weight pro wrestling crown, worn by Michigan-born Jim Hady for the past five months, will be at stake on Saturday night's weekly promat show. The four-bout card, scheduled for 8:30, will be held indoors at the Ohio State Fairgrounds' Junior Division Arena. 
Hady, the popular 210-pound muscleman from Detroit, won the title almost five months ago from not-so-popular Ray Stevens, one of the two dangerous Stevens Brothers. The 21-year-old ex-champ and his brother, Don, have tried several times to take the title away from Hady.
Don, the older of the two Stevens Brothers, hopes to achieve his goal - that of recapturing the junior heavy-weight crown - when he meets the block busting champ in this week's championship main event. The title bout is scheduled for 60 minutes or the best-of-three-falls. 
Columbus' Silent Jim Montanero and Charlie Hoover, another local lad, have been signed for the semi-final event. The semi windup is slated for 30 minutes or one fall.
A 30-minute prelim pits colorful Frank Townsend, the "Singing Wrestler" and ex-Marine Corps champ, against mighty Bill McDonald.

In the 176 to 300 cc class the trophy went to Jim McCabe of Paulding, O. Ralph Sturgis was second, Mac Eibling third, Doyt Woodward fourth, Walter Norton fifth and Alan Emrick sixth. 
Herschel Benkert of Cheviot, O., had what it took to win the middleweight 301 to 500 cc class, followed by Alva Rose, jr., Rich Edwards, Tim Wehrley, Dick Edelbrock and Paul Baer, jr. Baker, a member of the sponsoring club, only entered to help fill out the field and actually finished second, but gave up his winning position of his own choice so someone from outside the club could take the trophy - and that's the old spirit, Paul!
In the big jobs ranging from 501 cc to unlimited, Stan Thomas of Richmond, Ind., was declared the winner, trailed by Paul Youst, jr., John Clemmons, Jim Hinson, Clarence Bowlby and Tom Fortman.

Horses to Watch at Beulah Park
Why Not Now - Third at a big price and just about ready to pick up the winner's share next time.
Lumbar Man - May be a good getaway special in a race over a distance of ground, real soon.
Bouncing Boy - Can turn in an improved effort. Figures to whip some nice sprinters shortly.
Popular Street - Turned in a good performance when a third. Needs little more to win a purse.
Eastern - Needed recent race and figures to win over the same kind in the very near future.
Miss Cahaba - just missed not long ago. Ready to turn back some fleet juveniles next time.
Quarel - improving right along and will get the job done in a sprint test before long.
Little Doc - Had bad luck last time out. Fate may be kinder next time and he'll win one.
L'Cigarette - Plenty of speed shown lately. Will find a field she can outrun from the start.
Royal Bones - Wins occasionally and usually at a price. Worth tabbing next time under colors.
Brook Jr. - Better speed recently. Should find spot to make that zip pay off all the way.
Hen Pen - Beaten favorite seems likely to come up with a better race and make amends quickly.
Ace-To-Five - Closed a big gap when fourth. Figures to click when the distance is real long.
Pat a Bit - Dropped a close one to Sandtop. Needs only repeat that effort to take the prize.
Ironclad - Going in good form right now and needs only alert handling to win a purse.

Sports Cars to Cycles
Charlie Wilson, who used to be a photographer for the Star and who was quite a sports car fan and an owner of a little red MG, is now gone motorcyclists. He is living on a farm at Milford Center and a member of the Heart of Ohio Club at Marysville. He says he owns a couple of BSAs and next season plans on sprouting forth as a Class B competition rider. He learned, didn't he?
Kitts Thanks Warrens
Mr. "Red" Phillips, "Throttletwister" 
Dear Red:
Was reading the motorcycling news last night and saw that I was referred to as "The Grand Old Man of Motorcycling" down this way. The gent that referred me as this was our Grand Old Harley Salesman, Dave Warren. Thanks Dave, for this reference and I consider that remark both respectful and humorous. I'll admit I'm past"39" and I'll also admit that when I'm riding with some of these kids I feel like an "Old Man," or we'll say maybe a little older. 
Dave, I will be glad to take my "Old Lady" and you get your "Old Lady" and we "Old Men" will ride together again. Of course I'll be on my "Old Indian Trailblazer" and you will be on your "Old '57 Harley." Will it carry two old people?
Your Buddy,
K. O. Kitts,
Ironton, O.

Knabenshue Story
Continued from Page 6
Ferris Wheel. The log report told of a gasping engine that died, of ballast released for free flight and a landing in a corn field in Illinois 13 miles from the Exposition. The deflated gas bag. engine and frame were brought back to the aerodrome by a helpful farmer and his hay wagon.
Regardles of the landing, Knabenshue, in that brief flight, had become the master of "The Arrow," for in subsequent flights the ship bent to man's will, history was made, gate receipts skyrocketed and the navigator, sure now of the controls could indulge in occasional day dreaming during exhibition flights. 
What went through Knabenshue's mind was a reflection on world news at the beginning of the century, forerunners of upheavals in the present decade. The Russian-Japanese War was in full heat; Port Arthur was a prize, unknown Korea came into the news as a battleground; Liao-yong fell the week the "Arrow" was making its maiden flight; and there were pen drawings in the news of Japanese field hospitals along the Yalu.
Gains Confidence
"Confidence," wrote Knabenshue in the "Independent Weekly," "comes more and more to the navigator with each successful voyage." He describes a flight over the Fair - the floral clock by which he gauged time aloft; the floral map of the U. S. which he used as a compass point; the majesty of the Women's Magazine Building, the Belgian and Philippines exhibits. 
"As I sailed the last time over the Woman's Building," the article continues," I thought how simple it would be to drop a little bottle of nitro-glycerine on it and put it out of existence. With a dirigible airship like this one the problem, for instance, of blowing up Port Arthur would be reduced to easy terms.
"Someone suggested to me; 'Suppose the Japanese government were to offer you and Mr. Baldwin $100,000 to aid them with the air ship. Would you?' I can't say what Mr. Baldwin's answer would be, but I myself would not be mixed up in it for a million. The air ship in such surroundings would become the center of their firing. It would take only one shell to reduce The Arrow to such destruction that not an inch of silk would remain. The only safety to her captain would be the tolerably probable chance that neither the Russians nor anyone else could judge the altitude so as to make a sure aim. A cloud in the sky is something few marksmen can hit. There would be a smaller uncertainty about the ship. Yet if projectiles did strike the mark nothing but a profound patriotism could make allowance for so horrible a death. "There would always be danger unless the airship should sail two or three mules above the land and to be so high would greatly limit the efficiency of dropping explosives."
Knabenshue's reputation was made at St. Louis. With this phenomenal experience with dirigibles he put away his free floating balloons and designed his own airships. 
In 1905 he gave an exhibition at the Lucas County Fair, a flight from fairground to the city of Toledo, landing on top of the Spitzer building, Toledo's highest, and returning to the Fair, a flight of seven miles. 
In August, 1905 when he was stopping traffic in New York City with flights up and down Manhattan The SCientific American prepared a lengthy article for publication in its Sept. 2 issue. 
It began:
"Great popularity of experiments in aerial navigation has again been proven by the interest evinced by public and press in New York City in the recent successful airship flights by a young Westerner, A. Roy Knabenshue. So great was the curiosity of New Yorkers to view the flights that almost all business and street traffic was at a standstill as crowds followed the course of the great dirigible hovering over the city."
By now Knabenshue owned two ships, the Toledo I and Toledo II powered by a 10 hp. engine built by Consolidated in Toledo to his specifications. 
As Knabenshue navigated the 62-foot silk gas bag aloft, ground was being broken below for Grand Central Station and the first leg of the subway had been in use only a year. The flights that had New Yorkers looking skyward progressed from Sixty-Second St., to the Times Building, to the Flatiron at Twenty-Third St., on to Fourteenth St. and Union Square, then back again to the Park.
"The ship," New York papers headlined," reached an altitude of more than a mile!"
Next Week: Knabenshue builds larger ships and dreams of passenger trade.
