i .,1 -SUNDAY, MAY 19, 1937 PAGE 2 SEC 2 THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR- Sports Editor Bold Ruler Defeats Iron Liege "TJOW ABOUT the Novis?" That is the question most frequently asked at the Indianapolis Motor Speed way during the postwar era. "bad luck cars" of the 500 - speed fans follow the slightest movement of the brutish, powder blue machines with Theirs is the virtue of Individuality and mechanical personality among a field of con- . temporaries which are . so , nearly identical that only the paint jobs are really distinctive. Up until now, the Novi story had been one of tragedy and misfortune. Will the luck of the ill-fated cars change this year? Through most of their history, the Novis were front- f drive cars. Several times they sat on the pole, many times " they led the race. But they " never won it. THE LATE Wilbur Shaw al- ways contended that "if they'd . ever make rear-drives out of the Novis, they'd run off and - leave the pack." Shaw didn't live to see his prediction ful- ' filled. But, it was partially realized last year when Paul - Russo shot his Novi through traffic into the lead and still was heading the pack when he hit the wall on the southwest turn during the 21st lap of last year's race. Lew Welch of Novi, Mich., owner of the cars, had finally seen the light before the 1956 race and converted the Novis to rear-drives. If anybody is due for a turn ; in fortune at the Speedway, , it's the Novi team. But there was no indication yesterday that any change in . fortunes was forthcoming. This time, Russo was "rained out" of a chance to shoot for the pole. The things that have happened to the Novis down through the years are little short of miraculous. And, the miracles always are one of misfortune rather than boons. The Novi engine originally was built by Ed and . Bud Winfield and first saw action in the 1941 race in a front-drive Ford chassis. The late Ralph Hepburn finished , fourth in the car. The Novi again was running fourth in the 1946 race with Hepburn driving when a piston and connecting rod disintegrated and put it out of the race. It was fitted with a streamlined canopy the same year and Ab Jenkins drove it at 240 miles an hour over the Salt Flats of Bonneville, Utah. Mechanic Jean Marcenac joined Winfield and Welch on the Novi crew after the 1946 race and the team was here in 1947 with two cars. Cliff Bergere was forced out of the race with bearing trouble but took over in a relief role for his teammate Herb Ardinger in the sister car and finished fourth. Fate struck the Novi outfit two exceedingly cruel blows the next year. In 1948, the veteran Hepburn was injured fatally when he hit the wall during a practice lap. Then, Duke Nalon put the other Novi on the pole and was leading the race at 450 miles. But, he had to stop for fuel at the 462-mile mark because a yOUR DIME BUYS MOPE SMOKING PLEASURE THAN EVER BERjJfc YOU'LL ENJOY I 4 I LaFENDRICH CIGARS IT COM IS FROM THI HOUSI Of CIANI IT'S A 600B CISAII The public interest in the mile race is so great that rapt attention previous pit stop had been bobbled and not enough fuel had been put in the tank. The engine stalled, costing Nalon a precious minute and a half in the pits and Nalon had to settle for third place. THE NOVIS were running one-two in the 1949 race when outrageous fortune dealt them another hard blow. Nalon was leading the race at the 55-mile mark when his Novi crashed into the wall. He was burned severely but recovered to drive the Novi again. Rex Mays, driving the second Novi, moved into the lead but he, too, was sidelined at 120 miles with mechanical trouble. In 1950, the cars didn't even qualify. They arrived at the track late and didn't get running fast in time to make the field. Chet Miller and Nalon drove the cars in the 1951 and 1952 races but various mechanical problems of several kinds nipped their chances of victory. Miller, however, set a qualifying record of more than 139 in 1952. Practicing for the 1953 race, Miller became the first, driver clocked unofficially at 140 miles an hour. Then, in another practice session, he was killed in an accident quite similar to that which resulted in Hepburn's death. Nalon qualified the other car that year and won a sportsmanship award late in the race by deliberately spinning out into the infield to avoid hitting another car which was out Of control. He was not among the leaders at the time. The cars failed to make the next two races and it became obvious that the days of front-drive cars at Indianapolis had passed. Welch had two new tubular rear-drive chassis built and Marcenac made changes which stepped the horsepower of the engine up to over 650. Last year, one car was prevented- from qualifying because of weather, but Russo made such a good showing with the other before hitting the wall that there seems little doubt that Shaw was right. It could be this year, but then again it could be never. Whenever one of the cars stays together for 500 miles in peak condition, it is practically a cinch to enter Victory Lane. Certainly, Welch has some luck coming after spending more than a half-million dollars in a vain attempt to win the "500." , NATTIEST o. the crews dolled up for qualifications yesterday was the John Zink outfit with their snappy red-and-white blazers. They made a colorful sight as they swarmed around Troy Rutt-man's car. THE TWO Russos. Uncle Paul and Nephew Eddie, were in consecutive order in the long line of cars which waited vainly for qualification. Also, one behind the other were two of the closest bud dies at the track, Indianapolis drivers Jimmy Reece and Don Freeland. weve Deen getting quite a few inquiries lately about who drove what pace car in what year for the "SOO."

Tht defending champions i.'0ed into today's 36-hole final match with a convincing 5 and 4 triumph over Warren Strout and Dick Stackhouse at The Grove yesterday as the losers failed to r gister a birdie. Opposing Shelby and O'Neall ii. the championship battle will be Reese Berr and Merch Nickel, a pair of Coffin veterans who turned back Carl Brooks and Tom Matey, 3 and 2, in the other semifinal skir mish. THE SHOOT for the crown and $200 in first prize money starts at 8:30, with the afternoon round scheduled to begin at 2 o'clock. Strout and Stackhouse nev er recovered alter going iwo down on the first pair of holes. Shelby chipped in from about 20 feet to win No. 1 and O'Neall knocked in a birche putt on the second hole. The champions won five with a par three, took seven when Shelby punched in a 25-footer for a bird, and went five up on mo. a when a par four was good enough to win. Strout and Stackhouse copped the ninth with a par three, cutting their deficit to four down but then could get no better man naives on iu through 13, and the match ended when O'Neall won No. 14 with a par four. . . STACKHOUSE blasted beau tifully out of the sand to within three feet of the cup on the final hole, but then missed the short, putt which would have kept his team alive for the mo ment at least. Shelby and O'Neall were two under par with Stackhouse and Strout three over for the 14 holes. Berry and Nickel got a run ning start on the third hole of their match when the latter dropped in a 35-footer for a winning birdie, and took a commanding lead by stringing together three more birds on No. 6, 7 and 8. Nickel knocked in a 20-footer on No. 6 to start it. Berry then made a four-footer on the next hole and followed with a chip shot out of a trap for a three on the par four eighth hole. - FOUR UP at the turn, the Nickel-Berry combination quickly padded their advantage when both. Matey and Brooks missed short putts to lose No. 10. They lost 11 when Matey and Brooks each birdied and the margin was shaved to three holes with four to play when the Coffin linksmen could do no better than a bogey on the 14th. ' Each team then paired 15 and 16 to bring the match to a close.

SPIN IS Indiana Pro Golfers Seek National Berths By AL ROCHE A field of approximately three dozen Indiana golfers will shoot it out tomorrow in a 36-hole qualifying test at the Country Club of Indianapolis for three places in the National PGA Championship at Dayton, O., July 17-21. A pro-member tourney, be ing organized by Marion Smith, host professional, is scheduled for today as a preliminary. CONTESTANTS in tomorrow's twice-around shooting match will have an added incentive to score well in the morning because one of those pro-pro deals is on tap and the outcome could mean a "good day" for the winners, whether or not they earn a trip to Dayton. Bill Heinlein of Woodland, Jimmy Scott of the Ulen Coun try Club, Lebanon, and Jim Guinnup of the Lafayette Country Club represented the Hoosier state 1n the National last year but were unable to do anything in the way of giant killing. Heinlein, Wayne Timberman, Meridian Hills; Charley Harter, Pleasant Run; Paul Gross, Sarah Shank; Bill Russell, South Grove, and Ivan Gantz are Indianapolis pros who for warded early entries for the Rain Costs Ruttman Continued From Page 1 "That was a real scare. I was sideways about half the time." Said Jimmy Reece, "I could hear the voice of Firestone all the way around there." That means he was sliding all over the joint. And Eddie Sachs, who quali fied for the first , time, prob ably gave the best appraisal of track conditions. Sachs said, 'It was real wicked." It was all of that. : The league rule says that whenever a definite stopping time has been agreed upon, the game must be called regardless of the situation that may ex ist at that time. There are no suspended games in the American league, authough President Will Harridge recently ruled the Orioles and Washington must continue a game which was halted by light failure.

Not since 1948 and Citation has a Derby winner copped the Preakness. VICE-PRESIDENT and Mrs. Nixon were among the crowd of 32,856 which jammed Old Hilltop and screamed with excitement as Bold Ruler took the lead going into the backstretch and led the parade home by two big lengths over Willie Hartack and Iron Leige in the $113,800 gallop. In fact, Iron Leige almost didn't save second money of $23,000, as the despised 50 to 1 shot, Inside Tract, closed with a rush and finished third only a neck away from the favored Calumeteer. It was two and a quarter lengths back to the fourth horse, Mrs. Ethel D. Jacobs' Promised Land, in the field of seven 3-year-olds. Inside Tract, a fugitive from the claimings races, had never started in a stakes race before, but he hauled down $15,000 for the D. & M. Stable of Raymond De Brino of Va'.atie, N.Y, and Joseph Marino of Hudson, N.Y. Thfs was the sixth Preakness victory for Arcaro, the fourth for the 82-year-old Sunny Jim, dean of American trainers, and the first for Mrs. Henry Car- negie Phipps, New York and Palm Beach, Fla., socialite. FOR THE Calumet Farm of Mrs. Gene Markey, Lexington, Ky it was a bitter blow, as many observers considered Iron Liege a solid colt who might sweep the Derby-Preakness-Belmont triple crown. Calumet did it with Whirlaway in 1941, and Citation in 1943 -the last time it has been accomplished. But Hartack, and Trainer Jimmy Jones know how it feels to have a Derby winner come a Cropper in the Preakness. Last year at Louisville Needles beat Calumet's Fabius in the Derby, but two weeks later at Pimlico Fabius reversed the decision. Bold Ruler paid $4.80, $2.60 arid $2.40, while Iron Liege, sent off as the 6-5 choice on the board, returned $2.40 and $2.20, while the surprising Inside Tract, was $4.00 to show.
