May 11, 1961: The horse player is the hardest guy I know to please in the whole world of sports. He is grumpy, cynical, suspicious. He never smiles. No matter what happens he is not going to like it. If he wins, the price is too short. If he loses, it's somebody else's fault. The boy rode him like a camel. The starter got him stuck in the gate. The other horses came over on him just as he started to run. 

Also on the jump: A golfing official says the PGA’s “Caucasian only” rule is doomed. State Atty. Gen. Stanley Mosk advised the national PGA that it could not stage its tournament in California unless the clause was eliminated.
