Swabs taken from Santa Casa at owner s request from the mail s special representative Melbourne. Saturday. When the 6 to 4 against favorite Santa Casa returned to scale after running sixth in the australian steeplechase at Caulfield this afternoon his owner Trainer j. P. Devine expressed concern at the horse s appearance at his request. Devine said that Regan told him that Santa Casa acted As if he had been got at the race was won easily by Wake Rife 14/1 in course record time from actaeon 15/1 and character 11/2. After Devine spoke to him or. John Ston beckoned to the other stipendiary stewards and after a Short conference he spoke to the veterinary surgeon or. E. Wood who in company with an other veterinary surgeon or. Norman Myers followed Santa Casa to his stall in the Birdcage. After the veterinary surgeons had examined Santa Casa. Or. Wood took three swabs of the gelding s saliva. When asked whether he thought the horse was All right he said i must make my report to the stewards Devine was nonplussed. By Santa Casa s failure. He seemed never to see a Fence but it was at Regan s request that i went to the stewards and asked them to have Santa Casa examined he said. Regan told me said Devine. That the horse acted As if he had been got at or. Wood seemed to have great trouble in securing the swabs As Santa Casa s Tongue was particularly dry. Or. Wood after he had completed his examination told Devine that the horse s condition was consistent with that of one the had had a hard race. Santa Casa who is usually a particularly Safe jumper hardly made a Good leap. On several Occa sians Regan almost left the Saddle. This was noticeable Early in the race and although the horse seemed to go better in the Middle stages of the race he did not show the stamina he is known to possess. Devine was very upset not because Santa Casa had lost but because he was fearful that something had happened to his favorite who to him is More than just a steeplechase. The stipendiary stewards have not yet made any report concerning the inspection of Santa Casa by the Veteri nary surgeons but it is understood that a swab will be sent to the government analyst. Until the report on it is received no further action is Likely. Although he won by 20 lengths and had been eased up by his rider w Foley before he reached the winning Post Wake Rife s time in the three and a half male australian steeplechase was a course record. Wake Rife seemed to enjoy the arduous task of. Clearing the 29 jumps and went to the Lead six furlongs from Home. He had a 15 lengths Lead into the straight and Al though easing up increased it to 20 lengths at the Post solid backing brought character s Price Down to 11 to 2 against and he secured third place after a thrilling struggle. He had been near the Tail of the Field most of the journey but finished Well to Cut Down Al dam Royal and cold Spring on the Post actaeon soon after the Start took the Lead from Al dam Royal and until the six furlongs one or other of these two were always in the Van. Eldama Royal could not withstand the fast finishing placed horses and was fourth but the Veteran actaeon although very weary struggled Home 10 lengths ahead of character. In spite of Wake Rife s easy Victory the race was full of thrills. Strobes was the Only one of the runners to fall. He came Down at the first Fence in the Lane the second time round.

That is what doctors at the Ade Laide Hospital Hove told him and already he can walk without crutches and with a Freedom that surprises those who know him. True he could walk for Short Dis Tances before without crutches but that was achieved through his lameness the dominating Quality of his life which showed As a mixture of cheerfulness and determination in his Crutch using Days. When he was five years old or. Sterzl was run Over by a horse and cart. His injuries led to hip disease and he spent two years in the Chil Dren s Hospital and another three years at Home either in bed or sitting up. Then the hip disease was apparently checked but it left him with three stiff joints right hip left knee and left Bent so badly that they formed right angles and deformed his body so that As a grown Man he stood Only i it 4 in. In Hei glut never disheartened but in spite of his deformity or. Sterzl did not sit Back and grumble about it. I was never meant to be a Crip ple he said with a Happy smile today and Ever since x was a kid i have tried to do everything i possibly could.

The perfect wife a gripping two instalment serial begins on Page 2 of the Magazine Section. Stop press own account in King William Street 11 years ago. Always he fought his terrible disability in every Way possible. He did not intend to spend All his life on crutches if he could help it. So about four months ago when he had built up his business sufficiently to stand the expense or. Sterzl to use his own words decided to give it an other go he went into Hospital on the recommendation of a doctor and straight away an operation was performed. Heavy weights were suspended from both his less and from his right hip Carpenter s Job it was All solid going pretty pain Ful he said today with a wry smile. To explain the process to me one of the doctors said it s a Carpenter s Job. We have to make incisions to in Sert a chisel to Cut away some of the Bone so that the joints can be straightened.1 my last month in Hospital i spent with my legs in plaster which was also round my Middle. But that was the least uncomfortable part of the Busi Ness. I want to thank the nurses and Doc tors at the Hospital for All they have done for me. I came out of Hospital on july 25 with my joints and body straightened. A fortnight ago one of the doctors told me to walk across the room and Back again without my crutches. I did it and were we pleased i thought that straightening the joints would mean that i would not be Able to sit Down properly and i would have to spend my time either standing or lying Down. Even that would have been a great improvement. But the doctor purposely left my left knee slightly Bent and it is at the Best Angle for sitting Down. That with a Little movement in the right hip allows me to do so comfortably. It has All been a wonderful Success. Every Day i find that i can do More things things i have been trying to do Ever since i can remember. In a week or so unless something unexpected happens i will throw away my crutches for Good the treatment used in or. Sterzl s Case was nothing new but his improve ment has been remarkable said the doctor who was chiefly concerned in the Case. He will be much better than he is now. In a couple of years he will walk very Well and will be Able to Coyer a Good number of Miles. His. Cure will be permanent the doctor added that often people similarly crippled were afraid to undergo the necessary treatment but they should not hesitate to do so. Or. Sterzl will probably always have a slight impediment in his walk but he will be a living reminder of what modern science Allied with lameness. Can accomplish. Hustling along Adelaide streets on Bis crutches with one leg swinging almost at a right Angle or. Sterzl has been a Well known figure for years. This Pic Ture which was taken before his treatment shows him in a station Ary position in which he was Able to assume a much More upright position than when walking. Today s picture of or. Sterzl who after being a cripple for 27 years will soon be Able permanently to discard Bis catches. In an upright position he is now eight inches taller than he was before treatment.
