Foster Boat Wins in East
Miss Peps V Takes Auerbach Trophy
Red Bank. N.J.—(AP)—Danny Foster in his Miss Peps V copped both 10-mile heats of the "Judge" Emil Auerbach Trophy Race, beating Guy Lombardo's Tempo VI which took second place.
In both runs, Foster went off last, while Lombardo took the lead. The second heat saw the Maestro offer a game challenge in the final lap.
