PAGE 26 THE INDIAXAPoilS STAR 1 .THURSDAY, JUNE 17, 1948 STRAIGHT STUFF I fly Holt Slranalian Coast Ends Trouble On 'Hot Rods' CIXCE THE "HOT RODS" o ..... are coming to Indianapolis for some racing, the Kunnel thought you might be interested in a little information he picked up on them. The first impressions that they probably were the old slock cars which flopped here so miserably a couple of years xipa -a .,. Tf Ihot ...oc f1,1 ! the case, there simply v a s no use to have any truck with them. That kind of racing was stink-eroo, but good, as far as Indianapolis was concerned, regardless of how it tacks them In elsewhere. One guy got out in front and stayed there. The track wasn't big enough for anything else and pretty soon it began to look like a procession. THESE, APPARENTLY, are the McCoy in the "hot rod" business and not just Fords and Chevvies with the fenders off. They've been "accepted" by Soldiers' Field in Chicago at a buck a throw and the management there paid off a purse of some 55,300, which was 40 per cent of the gate less state and Federal taxes. DAXTEL P. MAXXIX wrote a very Interesting article in Cosmopolitan about the "hot rodders" and the solution to the problem in California, where this kind of racing started. (They do the d ..urn-dest things in California, don't they?) MANXIX'S PIECE told how mechanically minded kids still in their teens were doing tricks with automobile engines such as dual carburetion, high compression heads, and racing cam shafts. .They were driving the state troopers nearly nuts trying to catch them at their special speed "drags" on stretches of highway. All sorts of ruses were pulled by both parties the kids and the police until the South-em California Timing Association finally stepped in with something of a solution. The timing association simply iippealed to the boys' real love of machinery by giving them a place at El Mirage where the "rods" could be run at their 125-mile-an-hour clip against time and not be a trallic menace. This was on a dry lake bed. Now the kids have some place to test their "creations" before the admiring eyes of the girl friend, and the coppers aren't winding up with broken necks trying to catch a jalopy that can swoosh along almost as fast as Mauri Rose on the 500 straightaway. AX INTERESTED observer at the tiret Soldiers' Field show said the bohhy soxers swarmed out into the infield for swooning purposes worse than if Sinatra had been giving out. THE PROGRAM HERE tomorrow night consists of the regulation time trials starting at 6:30, then the first of four 10-lap eliminations beginning at 8:30. There's a six-lap handicap, the 15-lap semifinal and the 25-lap feature. The cars are started in inverted order. The fastest in the back rows. The understanding Is that if the sport "clicks" here, the "rods" will run every other Friday night for the balance of the summer. The Kunnel will have to skip the first one, however. There's a pretty important All-Star game going on at the Coliseum tomorrow night. r-AUTO SEAT COVERS a CmUm-Made for YOUR Car Boitlful Material! to Hannonln With Hour Car Color Mike font Selection Now TROCAR Cover Co.

John David Wins District Meet By Posts Record 213 Over 54-Hole Route With John Cleary2d By AL ROCHE John David of Meridian Hills became a firm believer in the old adage that the third time is the charm yesterday when he posted a record-shattering total of 213 strokes for 54 holes and won the Indianapolis District Golf Association's annual rhampionship tournament at Speedway. Defeated by Clark Espie in a play-off for the title at Highland in 1930, 74 to 76, and turned back by Joe Higgins in another extra-hole engagement at Speedway last year, 71 to 73, "Big John" made up for those disappointments by swinging through the stretch in 69 shots, two under par, to emerge victorious on this occasion by four strokes. DAVID MADE his debut In the 1918 renewal of the event with a 73 at Highland Monday and followed through with a 71 at the Ulen Country Club of Lebanon I Tuesday. When he finished giving Speedway s par a lacing he had eclipsed the district record of 216 which Dale Morey, formerly of Martinsville and now of Indianapolis, established in 1944. Tlje new champ launched his final round with a bogey five, hut picked up the last stroke on No. 5 with a birdie deuce and he was all even at the turn with a 35. On the way home the Meridian Hills star hirdied 12, slipped one over on 15, then birdied 16 and 18 to win going away with a 34. IN CLIMAXING his march through Victory Lane, David used a spoon from the tee on the 468-yard 18th. A five iron carried him across the creek, he chipped up from the edge of the green to within 18 inches of the cup, then tapped In the putt and all he had to do was take it easy while those who would overtake him fell by the wayside, one by one. The victor wound up the 54-hole route two over par. John Cleary of Purdue University and Hartford, Conn., a newcomer to District competition, played smoothly throughout the three - day meet and finished second with a 71 and a pair of 73s for 217. TWO SHOTS farther back was Ralph Jordan of Sarah Shank, who "climbed the ladder" with 71, 73 and 75. Dave Laflin of Lebanon was consistent with 73-72-75220, and fifth place went to Tony Petric of Anderson, who opened with a 71 and added a pair of 75s for 221. Clyde McEntirei of Noblesvilie, the first - day leader with a 70, added 74 and 78 to lie at 222 with Arnold Koehler of Pleasant Run, the seronrt - day pacesetter, who came through with 72, 71 and 79 in his three trips.

ACTUAL 61ZB Stars End Heavy Drills; Speed, Deception Tops' By BOB OVERAKER Indiana's young hardwood campaigners yesterday closed out the heavy end of their workouts for the clash with Kentucky in The Star's eighth annual All-Star basketball game at the Coliseum tomorrow night.. The All-Stars cut loose with the most dazzling display of scoring power, speed and deception since the start of their double-barreled daily drills. 1 Keeping the starting five intact in both the morning and afternoon scrimmages, .the "varsity" chopped up the "hamburgers" by the combined count of 113 to 54. A breakdown on the Indians Home For Respite, Lead By Three By MAX GREENWALD Members of the Indianapolis baseball squad returned home yesterday afternoon for a three-day respite from the American Association diamond wars. It won't be all holiday, however, as Manager Al Lopez has ordered a workout, probably of two hours, for this afternoon at Victory Field just for conditioning purposes. The Indians, in first place by only three games, then will leave tomorrow night to resume the road tour, interrupted by postponement of two games at Kansas City. COLUMBUS WILL be the first stop with three games scheduled. There will be a single tilt Saturday afternoon and a double-header Sunday. The Red Birds have been victims of the Tribe five times and have triumphed only twice in the contests played thus far. Indianapolis then will move on to Toledo for night games Monday and Tuesday nights. The Redskins' record against the Hens also is five victories and two losses. With the Western portion of the tour completed, the Indians have posted five conquests while losing four games. They won one engagement from Milwaukee, the league runner-up, after dropping two in a row. The Tribe then swept a two-game series at Minneapolis and broke even In four tilts with St. Paul, the third-place club. V FOR THE ENTIRE campaign, the Indians have been victorious 17 times on the road, while losing 14 of the away-from-home affairs. In comparison, the Brewers have won only 15 tilts on foreign fields while dropping 16 and the Apostles have posted 14 road triumphs and failed in 20 such tests. The Tribe has a 26-7 record at Victory Field and will resume home action next Wednesday against Its closest rival, the Brewers. what or dentist X r about summer discomfort! 3 eajcp 1 ..Ail NOW FROST-AIR CO., INC. 838 N.
