A long shot for Kentucky when Man O' War is the card. He's first under the wire whether in gridiron or track parlance. Berl doesn't neglect his cultural development, either, for he is one of our hopeful lawyers with literary inclinations. We fear though, since the results of the November election have been announced, he is headed on his downward career.

Class Cynic: "Wonder if the downward career means Frankfort or Shelbyville."

-The Kentuckian, 1922
