"QUALITY AND QUANTIT Y . " WERE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MIDWEST WHIPPET SPECIALTY AND RACES

April 4 and 5, 1964
Louis Pegram

The "1964 Midwest American Whippet Club Specialty Show and Race Meeting" will go down in the records as the most successful effort of its kind ever held in this section of the United States. The Specialty Judge, Mr. Alva Rosenberg, drew a fine entry of 77 Whippets -- and the two-day race program recorded 84 Whippets' names going through the entry box. All Whippets are not necessarily race and show individuals, thus it would be a conservative estimate that well over 100 Whippets from many sections of the United States were housed in the Chicago Amphitheatre.

CH. COURTNEY FLEETFOOT OF PENNYWORTH, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Newcombe, was "Best of Breed" at the Specialty and "Best in Show" at the International Kennel Club which made it virtually a perfect three days of Whippet activities.

Here are the results of the races as well as the names of those people who did so much to make this Whippet event such a great success:

1) PUPPY RACES (all starters under twelve months) Distance: 472 ft; four race

programs; 17 races; 27 entries; fastest time: 10:92 seconds; slowest time: 12:71 sec.

All races scored 5 points - 1st; 3 points - 2nd; and 2 points - 3rd.

This was by far the best group of Whippet puppies ever to race at the International Kennel Club Show. BETTEBROOK BONITA was the class of the field, winning each of her four races very easily. It should be noted that all of the young racers entered by Renner, Backman and O'Keefe Kennels were sired by the great race dog CH. ROUGET O'LAZELAND, who wasnationallyranked Number 4 in 1963. These young racers were from three different bitches, so it is safe to say CH. ROUGET is an outstanding sire of race Whippets.

The Adult Races showed the same quality as the Puppy Division with Victor Renner's EYLELAND HOMER ranked "Number 2 nationally" winning all four of his races in record timf CH. ROUGET O'LAZELAND ranked "Number 4 nationally" was second best in the field, but was no match for EYLELAND HOMER. TRAYMATT ROOSTER BOY, always a very fast Whippet, was more consistent than usual. KOBOLD FORMULA I, who has a Best In Show to her credit,was the high score female and was presented with a beautiful trophy by The Midwest Coursing Assn, CH BRIARWYN'S BLUE STONE turned in a 10:30 sec. in one of his winning races, but seems to show best when racing just under the "top box of Whippets." WHIPOO'S PAINT YOUR WAGON owned by Donald Hostetter was the most improved racer on the grounds. This Whippet was "Best of - Winners" at Westminster, the International Kennel Club, and Winners Dogs at the Midwest Specialty. WESTMORELAND ANDREW has developed into one of the fastest breakers on the track. He is more of the strictly English "sprinter" type.

We wish to thank the following people for their fine efforts as members of the official racing family --- Eugene Jacobs, Lure Operator, and Bob Mohrman, Starter, who coordina­ ted their efforts in the running of 55 races with only one race being rerun when there was a backlash in the cord of the lure. Chase Arnold, now of Toledo, Ohio, did an out­ standing job as Paddock Judge and in posting the race identification board well in ad­ vance of each race program. He was ably assisted by Mrs. Victor Renner and Mrs. John Berger. Mrs. Eugene Jacobs assisted in the operation of the Grading System for all races, while Bill Fields acted as Official in recording all results turned in by the Placing Judges. Dr. Jim Corbin and Selwyn Blackstone operated the electric timer for all races. The Placing Judges for the four programs we-e Tex Fawcett, Jim Corbin, Jack Middleton, Jim McGovern, George Ferris and Ron Herd.

Barbara and Ralph Eyles, who played such a great part in the success of this event, were not able to be at the show or races on Sunday, as business requirements made it necessary for them to be in New York City. Ralph and Barbara cffered to run their Whippets if needed. They also told me that CH. EYLELAND CINNAMON ROLL, the Top Racer of 1963, has almost recovered from a foot injury and would again be able to take on the best racers during the summer and fall national race meetings.

Doris Wear entered two starters and turned these racers over to us to handle on Saturday night while she attended the Fox Terrier judging. STONEY MEADOWS PINK CLOUD ran First, and SILVER LINING finished Second -- thus both Whippets did quite well all on their own. Peggy Newcombe was on hand to see one of RICKEY'S pups, INDIGO MOOD, race. This little fellow ( only 7 months of age and perhaps the smallest Whippet on the track) finished First and Third in four starts. It would look like RICKEY is not only a great show dog but is also going to produce racers.

The electric timer operated by Jim Corbin and Selwyn Blackstone operated in perfect style EYLELAND HOMER in his four winning starts ran the 472 ft. in 10.53-10.35-10.26-10.28.

It might be of interest to see just how well the Grading System and "timing" work to ­ gether. The figures below show the various times in the 4th final adult race program after Whippets had been graded through four complete race programs:

SECOND ANNUAL WHIPPET AND GREYHOUND FUN MATCH AND SPRING FROLIC

Jack Towne

On Easter Sunday, March 29, the Whippet and Greyhound folks in Southern California got together and held their Second Annual Whippet and Greyhound Fun Match and Spring Frolic at Bookside Park in Pasadena. Thelma Brown drew an entry of 46 Whippets and 15 Greyhounds on a bright, warm, typical southern California day. The match itself climaxed many of the other gala festivities held during the Spring Frolic. The match drew an audience of between 150 and 200 persons, many of whom had never seen a whippet or Greyhound before that day. We had publicity in several local papers and flyers were put up in most of the pet shops and feed stores in the area.

In order to raise money for our Western Specialty Trophy Fund, a very successful raffle was held. It was conceived by the ever resourceful Dot Frames and tickets were sold aggressively by Eddie De La Cruz. During the match, Bob Davis served as ring steward and E. R. Hastings took applications and generally lent a strong hand to the entire operation. The match was chairmaned by Jack Towne, assisted by Georgianna Mueller for the Greyhounds. The following lists show the winners in the various classes:

FROM ENGLAND

Report From Cruft's

by Catherine Hodgson (from English WHIPPET NEWS)

With 121 individual Whippets making 210 entries in the twelve classes, the judge -Mr. C. H. D. Todd - had some well filled classes to sort out. The ringside was crowded, as is usual at this great show, and included many visitors from overseas. Mr. Bo Bengston, over from Sweden, is fast becoming as well known in Whippet circles over here as he is in his own country where he is an excellent ambassador for the breed.

I enjoyed a chat with Noel Smythe, over from Northern Ireland on a busman's holiday. He told me that the Northern Ireland Whippet Club was well on its way to being firmly established and no doubt we shall soon be hearing about this newly formed club.

I gathered from the many comments that the general opinion on the entry as a whole was one of disappointment. It is weIl-known fact that at Cruft's there is always the many pet owners who exhibit only at this show, thereby swelling the numbers to the big entry we have come to expect. It is the breed club championship shows where more top class hounds are usually gathered.

Nevertheless this is not to say that the winners have an easy passage, and our congratulations go to Bob James who piloted his Ch. Samarkand's Greenbrae Tarragon to win the C.C. (his eighth) Best of Breed and second in the Hound Group, and to do this two years in succession is good going by any measure.

The bitch C . C . winner, a blue and white named Inadown Whispering Witch, bred and owned by Mrs. Kerr-Peterson, hailing from Westo n-Super-Mare, is a new one to top honours. Born 16-10-62 by Twinrivers Sea Holly ex Selbrook Rushlight, she is a most feminine little bitch with a delightful temperament.

Mrs. Odell's Shalfleet Stagecoach was the reserve dog C. C. winner, two years old on the day, and has one C.C. to his credit - won at Chester last year.

George Mannering and Mrs. Castle took the reserve bitch C.C. award back to York­ shire with the white puppy, Princess Pat of Oakridge. She had many admirers here, as when first brought out by her breeder, Mr. Hallas, at the Northern Counties Whippet Club championship show last September, to win the best bitch puppy award at the tender age of seven months.

hrs. C. E. Francis, London, writes - April 8, 1964, So very pleased to hear that Mrs. Jacobs is to carry on as editor of the WHIPPET NEWS. This paper would have been badly missed by Whippeteers everywhere I am sure. It is so interesting to hear how things are being arranged and run in other countries, especially to people like my husband and I, who are not likely to be able to travel and see these places for ourselves. The very best of luck to the magazine during the coming months.

The Midland Whippet Club held its members Limited Show last Saturday, April 4, as with all members shows it was a free and easy, social affair. Mrs. McKay's Laguna Porthurst Moonlight Sonata was the best puppy in show. The weather was terrible, on our way to Banbury we ran through a snow storm. Mrs. Fell was supposed to have come and had made four entries, however she was absent and on Sunday morning the papers gave the news that weather in the Ide Hill area was very bad indeed, so I guess that accounted for her absence.

This coming Saturday is the Whippet Club Championship show in London. Unfortunately the bitch judge, Mr. Sam Skelton, has passed away very suddenly and another name has had to be submitted to the Kennel Club. Mr. G. Tovey is judging the dogs. Our little race meeting at Oxford was very successful although the weather was awful and the field was so muddy. On the morning the folk had a gymkhana and the horses had jumped all over the field. The lightweight division was won by Miss Carpenter's Laguna Little Lucille, the middleweight's by my own Pearlie Girl and the heavyweights by my young dog, under the care of Mr. Tom Day - Franciscan Burnt Toast.

April 19, 1964 - On Sat. April 11th the Whippet Club held its championship show at Manor Place Baths, London. The principal winners were Dog C.C. Winner, Ch. Samarkand's Greenbrae Tarragon, Bitch C.C. Winner was Laguna Little Leonie, both of the winners were bred from the Laguna Kennels stock. The bitch is owned by Mrs. Rees and the dog by Mr. R. M. James. Both are sired by Ch. Laguna Limelight. A good day for the Laguna Kennels. It was a very pleasant days showing marred by the show manager's car being stolen. Fortunately, it was recovered later, had been abandoned about five miles away and rifled. However, Mr. Wright got it back so that was O.K. The Club was most unlucky in that the appointed dog judge died suddenly at the weekend previously.

The summer cycle of championship shows are getting into full swing now. We all hope that the weather will be good to us, it is so much more enjoyable in the open air. Tents and marques get so close and stuffy.

My own next championship venture will be at Leeds on May 30th. As we have people living in that town we make i t a social affair and visit the relatives at the same time. While up in the north we hope to visit some of the racing people, also to give our dogs a run with them. Some of the We lwyn people went north last week to see the tracks and traps used, also the methods used for handicapping. They were very much impressed.

Not much news I am afraid, so once again, all best wishes to the WHIPPET NEWS for the future,

Dorothea Frames Deports April 14, 1964

Sunland , California

Jack Towne is writing you regarding the results of our second annual Whippet Match. Enough to say that it was a wonderful success with 1 46 puppies and adult dogs with­out major points. Thelma Brown did an excellent job of the judging and couldn't have been more patient with the silly babies that were not as yet completely ring trained. The match was followed by a very enjoyable dinner at the Westward Ho in Pasadena.

Next Sunday, April 12 is the San Gabriel show with an entry of 12 for Mr. Vincent Perry. The day before, Whippet people will be torn between coursing in Coronado and racing at Pearblossom. I, unfortunately, will stay home and pack as I am moving from my wonderful little house in Sunland. My house hunting so far has turned up two fabuloushomes in Malibu complete with immaculate kennels, stables and riding rings for very complete prices, to one very incomplete house and kennel in the San Fernando Valley. Finding a place to live with more than three dogs is quite a problem here, and I have had to compromise by taking a temporary place in Van Nuys while I continue to shop.

Would it be po ssible to print a list of Whippet books and publications in the WHIPPET NEWS. I have mislaid mine by Mr. Renwick and have yet to find a copy of the one by Mr. Todd, and I know that others are available. Christine's book is the latest one and well worth having several copies around for the newcomers purchasing Whippets. In the Los Angeles area there is a great deal of interest in Whippwt books and I am sure that any information about recent and older books would be appreciated.

My latest news is that my brindle puppy, Singin' Little Buffalo Boy finished at the Kern County Kennel Club Show in Bakersfield, April 15th. He started his career January 19th at the Santa Ana Match where he went Best In Match over a record breaking entry of over 140O dogs. "Sing" was bred by Barbara Eyles and Paul Sykes and is by Ch. Eyleland Henry ex Eyleland Pianissimo. I couldn't be happier with him!

One other item that I almost forgot. Bob Davis and Frank Kubisch are working on some exciting designs for the bench decorations for the Santa Barbara Specialty. Anyone interested in joining in the planned color scheme should provide blue bench rugs, towels or whatever for the dogs to rest on. This is certainly not necessary, but would provide an attractive background in accord with the rest of the decorations.

Also, the rates for advertising in the Specialty catalogue are very reasonable. Anyone interested can write Mrs. Minna Mott, 4 4 28 Carpenter, North Hollywood, California . Pictures and copy need not be in until July.

Great Circle Kennel Reports
Wendell T. Howell
April, 1964
Co. Waterford, Eire

What a grand thing it is to have our Whippet News back. Whether a Whippet lover and fancier is in Idaho or the Emerald Isle, it is all the same for keeping in touch with other people in the breed, all over the world, especially in America. I don't mean to make any pronouncements, but doesn't everyone concerned get full marks for being charitable and reasonable and putting the emphasis on what was best for everyone rather than holding a grudge. Thanks.

w hippet bitches will tick peculiar spots to have their pups at times, as many of mine have, but I suppose it really is a bit unfair to pick peculiar spots for them. I have recently been having a visit from Mrs. Henderson of San Francisco and we were determined to go to the show in Diblin on Patrick's Day. Off we went then, with four Whippets for the show and one we had to take along who was due to pup about that time. Sure enough, she did. It all began at five in the morning in the Hotel Russell and went on all day while we were at the show. I hope none of you are ever faced with getting a pupping bitch out of a hotel in time so that everyone isn't kicked out. Luckily Mr. Lambert, the vet, had told us his kennel man would be at his place because his wife was ill. Normally

nobody would be at home on Patrick's Day. This gentleman took charge and we drove back to County Waterford that night with six more Whippets than we had come with. Since they are Dubliners and born on that day, their names are - Irish Coffee, Irish Lace, Irish Linen, Irish w hiskey and Irish Eyes. There are five dogs and a bitch...by G. C. The Scot out of Betty Fell's half English bred Badgewood Annie Oakley. Weren't we lucky.

Racing here seems really getting on. We have a little fixture coming up this Thursday at Lismore Castle, and a bigger one, organized by the South Tupperary Canine Club this Saturday on the Greyhound scho oling track at Tipperary Town. If deadline permits I will add results of these two in this article.

Without being at all controversial I really do want to answer Mr. ToWne's comments about Whippet racing. He is right, of course, in saying that Whippet racing, as constituted in its present revival in America is a thoroughly amateur sport. There is no money in it. The dogs are all owned and run for fun. Whether for fun or money though, any competition with dogs or horses is basically dedicated to the general improvement of the breed. There could be no special point in going to all the trouble to put on a Whippet race just for the dogs to have fun. It seems to me they have quite a good enough time anyway, at least they do around here. If the people are to have entertainment with the slightest purpose, improving the breed or putting up a decent show in public or what have you, the dogs must be taken in hand and trained to run and properly handicapped so they can run to their best advantage. Whippet racing, Greyhound racing, hunting a bagged fox or a drag, stag hunting a carted stag, etc. are all pretty artificial forms of sport. If we are to let these become so completely mannered that we say we are doing them for the benefit of the animals involved rather than ourselves, have we not reached a sort of gooney world, Mr. Huxley's Brave New One, perhaps. If dogs are required to do what they are bred for and not be taken out like little children to a beach or picnic, perhaps we might all stay in better focus. Though Mr. Towne has suggested that I am perhaps too professional in my outlook, I must reveal that though whippets owned by me have been lucky enough to win the national championships of three countries (racing) my reward in a professional sense, financial I suppose, has been a lot more than I should have afforded. The lovely whippet engraved ashtray from America, the blankets with the national colours of Holland and Germany are most prized possessions. I am proud of the dogs that won them.

How proud we all are of Mrs. Newcombe's terrific win. What a boost to the breed and what a lovely Whippet won it. I saw him in England before he went over and thought him the most thoroughly sound and typy Whippet I had ever seen.

Last Saturday's race meeting at Tipperary Town was unavoidably cancelled. I do hope someday we are able to get this Tipperary venue off the ground and actually going. There are many conflicts and difficulties.

The Duchess of Devonshire very kindly gave the end of their point to point course for a little meeting last Thursday. I took over the old machine manufactured by Earl Stires, which is still running pretty well and my set of even more ancient starting boxes. We had Danny, owned by the Duchess, a fawn dog of Allways breeding owned by the Marchioness Wa te rford, Ceasar and Brutus owned by Timmy Cranley of Tipperary and a set of six of mine. It was a blustery April afternoon with occasional heavy showers, but we had good racing in the intervals. Of the novices, the Waterford dog was outstanding. Our honored spectator who seemed to enjoy herself, was Lady Dorothy McMillan, who is staying at Lismore with her husband for the salmon fishing. Liela, Duchess of Westminster also braved the wind and rain to watch, so altogether it was a marvelously enthusiastic small throng. We all went back to the Castle for tea afterwards and a grand time was had by all. Mr. Roderick Moore-O'Farrell judged the finish. Of the race dogs already schooled, one of mine, called Himself, was the ultimate speed star. I really shouldn't take him around as he is much too big and can't help winning everything. Perhaps he will keep up his winning ways this summer and can be slipped into a few terrier races. I hope Mr. Towne won't think me too commercialized if I try to take a few bob off the bookies.


Madcap Kennel Reports
Norman Ellis

April, 1964

Fresno , California

The Fresno - Bakersfield shows, held the same weekend as Chicago, saw three' WhIppets finish their championships. Marion Woodcock's Silver Song of Suntan (B); Dorothea Frames' Singin Little Buffalo Boy (D); and Madcap Stand Fast (B). The Fresno judge was Mr. Ellsworth Gamble. Mr. Gamble did a VERY thorough and exact job of judging. Mr. Gordon Parham judged Kern County K. C. in Bakersfield and judged nicely for soundness and quality. Mr. Parham has a delightful sense of humor and had the exhibitors relaxed and at times in stiches with laughter&

The racing at Fresno went much smoother than last year. The track, unfortunately, was like pitted concrete and many dogs ran wide, to the outside on the broken ground. Although last years winner, Ch. Great Circle Skibbereen was declared winner in his first heat, and the re-run. I withdrew the dog due to the behavior of the bitch that was disqualified in the first heat (but allowed to run the race again to placate her owners). After Skibbereen bumped at the Santa Barbara races last year, I have been working very hard to prevent a reoccurence. Then the dog was again running well, he is savaged in his first public contest. Unfortunately, he is not the dog to be bumped or fought at through a muzzle. The races were ultimately won by a dog from Washington, owned by Mrs. Leslie Babbett, Whiteacres Sage, who ran beautifully.

The following weekend there was Whippet racing at the Sacramento Dog Show. Ch. Madcap Bold Minstrel went along for the racing, but we didn't show under Mr. Schoendorf. The races were well run and extremely well organized by Sam and Carmen Scott of Stockton, and Liz Scott of Sunland. I believe thirteen heats were run in less than one hour. The winner was Ch. Hollypark Highland Fling. Consolation winner was Ch. Madcap Bold Minstrel.

Having in the last year put up a few chain link runs, they are coming down again. The dogs and I are moving to the village of San Juan Bantista near Monterey Bay, in June. We've taken a white brick house six miles from the town. The house is void of neighbors (at last: located in a lovely oak treed mountain canyon.

Tosca is due May 2Oth to whelp her second litter by Ch. G. C. Skibbereen. This happy event will certainly mess up moving plans.

 


Pennyworth Kennel Reports Margaret P. Newcombe April 17, 1964

Newington, N. H.

First of all, may I thank everyone who welcomed me so warmly at the Chicago Specialty and the International, and say thank you for your very wonderful hospitality. I really enjoyed my trip, as did Mrs. Collings, who traveled with me, even though we both were very tired when we finally got back home.

Ricky would like to also thank everyone for being so nice to him, both in and out of the ring.

I, before leaving Chicago, wired Mr. Halliwell, Ricky's breeder in England, telling him of Ricky's marvelous win at the International and I have received a letter from him which I would very much like to pass on to you, in part.

"Just received your wire containing news of Ricky's latest great win. You must be very proud of him having completed this great double and once again I send my heartiest congratulations to all concerned. Needless to say I am a very proud man to have bred such a great Whippet. His latest win made headlines on the Editorial page of this weeks (April 1O) Our Dogs and it contained a very good picture of him!!

At this point I don't know which of us is the most proud, Mr. Halliwell as his breeder, or myself as his owner. I am sure Ricky could care less, he knows we love him and he is happy here in Newington with us. I just wanted to tell all whippet folk how much we appreciate all the letters, cards, telegrams etc. and to let you know that I am sharing everything with Mr. Halliwell over seas. Thank you all.

I have also received a cable from Mrs. Margaret Wigg of the Ladiesfield's "My heartiest congratulations. I am proud to have given Fleetfoot an English Championship."

A letter came from Mrs. D. Lewis of the Test Kennels, one from Mrs. D. Cuzner, owner of Ricky's sire Ch. Bellavista Barry. I have also heard from Mrs. Catherine Hodgson of the Briarcliffe's who helped me so very much to get Ricky, and several others. It is a very wonderful feeling to know you have so many friends far and wide and my thanks to each and every one of you.


White Acres Kennel Reports
Pearl Baumgartner

April, 1964

Puyallup , Washington

Here it is the end of April and it has been busy times for us. We are just getting settled after a 3OOO mile trip to southern California, where we attended two shows, a wedding and visited with friends and relatives. Since the trip was made to a attend our son's wedding at San Jose, we were limited to the dogs we could take. We took two, Ch. White Acres Sylvia, a 6 year old bitch and our daughter Carol's 2 year old bitch, White Acres Carol's Fancy (Fanny), Mrs. Doris Ringer had her bitch Ringo's Pandamnoium C.D., and Leslie Babbitt had his male, White Acres Sage, and as an added passenger was a 6 month old pup Doris was delivering to the Jerry Trounces at Walnut Creek, Calif. It was a good trip and all 5 people and the dogs made out well in our pick-up and camper. It was great fun sleeping and eating whenever we wished. The shows were lovely, but a bit on the cold and windy side at Bakersfield. But the weather was ideal at Fresno. and a perfect day for racing. We ran all four of our dogs and felt we did well since none of our dogs had ever been in this type of boxes. Leslie Babbitt's White Acres Sage was the winner, and white Acres Carol's Fancy was second and third was Dot Frames and Liz Scott's Ch. Hollypark Highland Fling, and soon after the racing, Highland Fling went into the Group and placed 4th. Quite an accomplishment after running 3 20O yard heats. Doris Ringer's Ringo's Pandemonium won second in her two heats, but old Sylvia found she was in too fast competition and came in last, but she was happy as she got to run. Both Sage and Fanny turned in the fastest heats of the day, 11.8 seconds, but we felt they could have done better if they had pulled the lure faster, as several times they nearly caught the lure, and Pandemonium did catch it in her first heat. Leslie Babbitt really thought Sage accomplished a lot as Sage beat Fanny for the first time in major competition. There are a lot of good running dogs in California, and they can be some of the top dogs in the country if they will get them out and run them, and with the newly formed group in the Bay area and those in the L. A. area really getting out with their dogs think by Specialty time we had all better look out. I hope we can work something out and be able to attend the Specialty in July.

After the shows we went to L. A. and left Leslie at his brothers in Artesia and Doris took the train for a visit with her mother in Lousiana. We also stopped by for a visit with Mr. & Mrs. James Young and Dick and Christine Cormany. Then we went back to San Jose to attend the wedding. On our way home we stopped by Walnut Creek and went coursing with Jerry and Lynne Trounce. We had three adult dogs (Sage, Fanny and Sylvia) and the Trounce's three pups 3, 6 and 1O months old. We kept the dogs on a lead, but didn't sight anything so finally let them loose, and after a short search they were off after Mr. Jack Rabbit; all worked the rabbit well and all five stayed to the end with Fanny bringing the rabbit back to us at the end of the race. They had five rabbits and five kills in the short time we were out and all five dogs stayed to the end. After all the coursing we were off on our trip north. 7e were sorry to leave all the sunshine for the cold rain we found when we arrived home on Sunday April 12th.

7e have our new group fairly well organized, it is known as the Evergreen Sight Hound Association. We have to date 35 members, Afghan and Whippet owners. we are now preparing for our big event of the season, which will be races at the Dog Fanciers of Oregon show on June 21, 1964 at the Multnomah Kenne 1 Club Greyhound Track. We will use a 20O yard section of the oval Greyhound track, Greyhound boxes lure and timing system. There will be trophies offered and an entry fee of $1.00, which will be divided among the winners. There will be both adult and puppy races. Also races for all eligible sight hounds. Entries may be obtained by writing to the Racing Chairman, Robert Baumgartner, 1O703 59th Ave. E., Puyallup, Wash., 98371.

As for kennel news, we don't have much to offer in that department. But we do have two new litters, both sired by Ch. White Acres Shaw n ee and out of Ch. White Acres Snow Flurry and w hite Acres Sweet Smiles, and another litter due soon out of Ch. White Acres Cherokee. As for show news from this area; it has been rather slow.At Seattle, w inners Dog and Best of Breed was Mike's George, owned by R. Coughlin and now owned by White Acres Kennel, and Winners Bitch was R. Watson's Whirlwind Silver Dart. At Bremerton (March 22nd) Best of Breed was Ch. Penny­ worth Snow Prince owned by Dale Simmons, Winners Dog was J. Anson's Gypsy's Kelly, and Winners Bitch was R. Watson's Whirlwind Silver Dart. Since these two shows entries have been down as the State Veterinarian revived an old law that required all dogs to show proof of rabies shots and Health Certificate on all out of state dogs. The show giving clubs were up in arms at the way it was done, so at all the forthcoming shows it has been dropped so we expect entries to pick up again.

Enclosed is a notice that we would like put in the WHIPPET NEWS. We are really looking forward to these races, and have quite a bit of interest in them too. It is a beautiful track and grounds, but am sorry that it is the same week end as

the Harbors City show at Long Beach, but that is the way things are and Dog Fanciers cannot get these grounds at any other time. Ellsworth Gamble, who judged at Fresno, Calif. on April 4th will judge the Whippets, Afghans and Beagles. They will be judged in the AM and racing will start during the noon lunch hour.

Dog Fanciers Association of Oregon, June 21, 1964 - Superintendent is Mrs. Helen Waring, 265O S. Custer St. , Portland 16, Oregon. There will be some Afghan races in between Whippet race heats, in this way it will give more rest periods between heats. The drawing will be prior to the race, and we hope to have programs printed for the spectators, and post entries will have to take their chances with post and race positions.

Mr. Pegram said if his health permits he hopes to attend the Harbors City show and may attend our races on the 21st. It will really be nice if he can, and perhaps give us some more information on racing. Some of our best racing dogs here in this area have his Ch. Pegram's Red wagon on their pedigree.

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WHIPPET FANCIERS ASSOCIATION

by

Samuel H. Scott

Two months ago about twenty Whippet owners, together with about 25 Whippets, gathered at Galt, California to form the Northern California Whippet Fanciers Association. Our purpose, broadly speaking, is to promote the welfare of the

breed and to enjoy recreation and sport through Whippet racing and other activities. At the initial meeting the club name was adopted and the following officers were elected : Samuel Scott - President, Monty Long - Vice President, Beverly Coleman -Secretary, and Mrs. Omer Rees - Treasurer. Subsequently a working set of by-laws were adopted.

As might be expected, the first races resembled an exercise in mass confusion, for almost none of the dogs had ever raced before and only three or four of the people had had any experience. Ho ever, we have persevered and have met as often as we could, and things are beginning to look like they should, with the handlers knowing their duties and doing them, and with dogs beginning to run cleanly and hard. As a matter of fact, this is the first dog organization I've belonged to in which two or three people didn't do all the work. These Whippet owners are a wonderful group, and I, personally, feel it to be a privilege to be associated with them. They are working hard to school their young dogs properly and well, and they all work hard. At our meet in Sacramento I witnessed the king of sportsmanship that is rarely seen. At the risk of embarrassing her, I must report that Miss Jeanne DuVall, who owned the winning puppy at the meet, tried

to reject her trophy because she felt that her puppy had been guilty of misconduct on the track. This in spite of a ruling by the Chief Judge that the infraction was not serious and that the pup should not be penalized. Wouldn't it be a different sport if everyone shared Jeanne's attitudes?

Our program developed do rapidly that we decided to be bold and we approached the Sacramento Kennel Club, offering to hold a formal racing exhibition in conjunction with their All Breed show. Our proposal was accepted with enthusiasm and Mr.

James Blood, President of the Sacramento Kennel Club, gave us fine and enthusiastic support. In order to make sure that the races were as well organized as possible, we asked for entries in advance and 28 dogs were entered. We had 5 fail to show what with tw o bitches coming in season, Canesco's Charioteer cutting a tendon in his foot (subsequently repaired by surgery with the prognosis looking good) and two others failing to arrive. By having our organization all set up in advance and by publishing a racing program in advance, we were able to run 13 heats in one hour without undue strain on anybody. 7e entered the dogs in three racing classes as follows: Open - dogs over 15 months of age that had won a heat at a recognized meet. Novice - dogs over 15 months of age that had not won a heat at a recognized meet. Puppies - dogs under 15 months of age that had not won a heat at a recognized meet. Dogs could, of course, enter above their eligibility if their owners chose to do so. Prizes were given to the winners of every heat. The track was slow, having been harrowed recently, and the dogs ran directly into a 25-3O mph headwind. We feel that this accounts for the times being somewhat slow.

Scoring all puppy heats on the new puppy point scale, and scoring all the other heats except the Open Final as being on the B,C,D scale, with the Open Final scored on the A scale, the dogs scored as follows:

All in all we feel that the meet was quite successful, and we hope to have another in conjunction with the Sacramento Kennel Club's fall show. The facilities are excellent, Mr. Blood gives wonderful support, the publicity is complete, the location is ideal, and their fall show would allow exhibitors to pair with a point show nearby on Saturday, making a full week-end of Whippet activity.

We shall try to make regular reports of our activities, and we hope that our activities will make a real contribution to the breed.

With regard to the new Racing Rules we have two questions. If the races are open to the public, we feel that the draw should be made in advance and the whole program as well organized as possible. Do the rules forbid this in view of the statement that at least two members of the Sectional Supervisory Racing Committee should always be present, or can a person be designated to take care of this in advance? Also, am I correct in interpreting the rules as meaning that the preliminary heats should be scored on the B,C,D scale while only the Final heat is scored in the A scale? (By the way, Mrs. Scott had just completed two sets of blankets according to the old official color scheme when the new rules arrived. Needless to say, she was chewing nails and spitting cotton for a day or sot) One other question. I note that ho cut-off age is given for puppies. Last summer I recall having a conversation with Mr. Pegram in which the opinion was advanced by both of us that 12 months was really not old enough for a puppy to race against mature dogs. May we have a clarification of this?


-23-

ANSWERS TO SAMUEL SCOTT

(as approved by Louis Pegram, National Whippet Racing Secretary)

There should be as many members of the Sectional Supervisory Racing Committee as needed to supervise racing(National w hippet Racing) in all sections of the country. Certainly, for any race meet, the draw for the first series of heats can be made in advance and the persons doing this can be members of the committee. If you need more members of the Sectional Supervisory Racing Committee in your area, please write Louis Pegram, National Racing Secretary, Ralston Purina Co., St. Louis 2, Missouri.

In the first heats or the "draw races" of any race meeting, the dogs are matched according to their Grade. The names of all the Grade A dogs are placed in the container and drawn for post positions for as many heats as needed to race Grade A dogs against each other. Next the names of the Grade B dogs are placed in the container, are drawn and raced together, etc., through Grade D dogs and Puppies. Starting with the second series of race heats in the same race meeting, post positions are determined by the points the dogs received in their first series of heats. Forget the Grades of the dogs for the remainder of this race meet and go by the points won and total points won, matching the dogs with the same points in the same race. Your high point race will contain the dogs with 8 points, in other words the winners of your Grade A "draw races" or heats. There might be only four dogs in this race, if you had only four Grade A heats. (Of course if you are having a small meeting, with only two 8 point dogs, you will have to put the two 5 point winners of your Grade B races in with these to make a race.) This high point race is again scored on the high point race scale (the winner will then have 16 points) Continue placing dogs of equal or near points together, until you have run the number of heats desired for the meeting. The dog with

the highest points is the top race dog for that race meeting. If there is a great race dog starting in Grade D, after winning his first heat, he will quickly move up to race against C and then B dogs and if continuing to win will run against the Grade A dogs and either stay with them or drop down to his level of dogs of equal racing ability. When holding a race meet for the National Whippet Racing Program, think of the heats in terms of the grading system and total points won, NOT as semi-final, final heats, etc.

Puppy Division. Please refer to last page of Racing Rules. "Puppy Division: For young Whippets over 6 months and not over 12 months of age the first day of any racing meeting where young whippets are to race." While there was some discussion for having "puppy" races up to 16 months, the National Racing Rules and Regulations Committee could not agree to this and in order to avoid a complete impasse for approval of the Racing Rules, the top puppy age had to be left at 12 months, in line with A.K.C. conformation shows.

MISSISSIPPI VALLEY KENNEL CLUB RACES AND SHOW SET NEW RECORDS

Louis Pegram

May 17, 1964, was an important day in St. Louis for those who came

to show and race their whippets. Four records were established, some of them good and some not so good.

A new record entry for whippets shown at the Mississippi Valley Kennel Club was established when Judge Albert E. Van Court drew an entry of 23. The races also set an all-time high entry with 56 whippets taking part. The electric timer did not work on all races, as the reflection of the sun on the mirror often made it impossible for the whippets to break the beam at the finish. The distance of 151 yards was run in 9.64 seconds which is a record for 150 yards, so far as my records show for the past 30 years. The weather was clear but "hot". This was the hottest May 17 since 1902, but in spite of the heat, both whippets and their owners finished out the race program in fine fashion.

Most of the credit for this fine weekend goes to whippet owners who take part in National Whippet Racing. Martha Love again had a beauti­ fully catered dinner party the Saturday night before the show and races. Virtually Ell whippet owners taking part attended, and after dinner films of West Flagler Kennel Club, Miami, Florida, were shown which featured the $50,000 greyhound race run at that track each year. Laurel Race Track, Laurel, Maryland sent their latest color film showing the International Race on the turf, so we had the opportunity of seeing greyhounds and horses in action.

Eugene Jacobs and Gary Morgan operated the lure with Bob Mohrman acting as starter. Judges were Dr. James Corbin, Mr. Jack Middleton, Walter Brockman, John Eiffert, end Mrs. A bigale Jones. Helping with the grading system and paddock duties were Mrs. Eugene Jacobs, Miss Carol Sussman, and Bill Fields. Ralph Eyles was kind enough to furnish starting box and identification board while Eugene Jacobs and Gary Morgan made their lures available for all race programs.

Heat or no heat, here are your results:

Eyleland Homer and Rouget O'Lazeland, the class of the field, each won a "grade A race" and took turns beating each other in "grade A", resulting In two(2) wins and one (1) second for each racer. Traymatt McArthur showed very strong in the heat as did all of the Steinberg Kennel whippets. Grave Digger racing for the first time in official races showed speed while racing greenly. Moc Lulu Belle, small in size, showed her usual fine performance. Eyleland Peppermint Boy, Ch. Eyleland Henry and several other racers became overheated and did not show their true racing form.

Bettebrook Bonita, top race puppy at International Kennel Club races remains undefeated in 1964. Bette Brook Lilliput and Renfield Reginald were too fast and too strong for the other puppy racers.
