(iiU 411) bt. -4-758 BOTTLES AND MEN f LEE AFTER CRASH The intersection of the Sixth avenue- Duncansvllle road with the William Penn hlg>way at Third avenue and Thirteenth street in Duncansvllle was the scene of a motor mishap at 10 o'clock on, Saturday night in which 1 two machines figured, each being slightly damaged, but no known personal Injuries were sustained. As the machine owned and- operated by Arthur B. Clark of this city, traveling westward on the William Penn liighway, was about to make a right turn onto the Sixth avenue road it was crashed into head-on by a ma> chlne bearing license tags RE382, which, It is alleged, attempted to pass another car which was obeying, tfie stop sign at the intersection and was on tho wrong side of the traffic He- vice. Considerable traftlc delay resulted while the details of the accident were being related to borough'and state officers who were summoned following a report that several men in the other machine, said to have been owned by Thomas Lane of Williamsburg, fled with several bottles believed to have held liquor. One of the men returned Lo tne temporarily abandoned machine within a few minutes a.nd attempted to remove it but was held until the arrival of the ofllcers. An investigation Is being made of the incident, which is expected to lead to charges being brought for liquor law violation in addition to violations of the motor code in failing to obey the stop sign, not rendering aid following an accident and reckless driving. Officers are inclined to believe that th. man returning to the machine was not the operator at the time of the mishap.

Mr. Clark, who is engaged in the Insurance business in the city, said today that his car was damaged to the extent of about $75 in the crash.

SEND TICKETS OUT FOR JUNE CLASSIC Tickets for Altoona's annual 200-mile Flag day auto classic, June 14, were placed on sale this morning at the offices of the Altoona Speedway corporation in the Elder building. Speedway attaches were busy today filling hundreds of orders received since the fall classic last Labor day. With the> advance request for choice seats much greater than in previous years, it was predicted at the speedway offices today that one of the largest crowds in the history of the Tipton oval will invade the city for next month's speed event. Aside from the avalanche of 'ticket orders, each mail brings a volume of inquiries as to hotel accommodations and general race day information, which gives every indication that Altoona will be host to one of the largest army of race fans she has welcomed since the local track entered the gas fraternity in 1923. The new two-man cars are credited with the added interest. Not since the "dual control" mounts were declared taboo in 1923 has there been the program of thrills and excitement predicted for this year's campaign. Many fans have been anxious to see the new creations on the local oval. Built the year the one-man cars were placed in the running, the Altoona speedway narrowly missed the age of the two- man cars. With the Tipton saucer conceded as the fastest speedway in the world, new records are expected wheh the speed jockeys begin their 200-mile dash June 14. Indianapolis and Altoona are the only speedways permitted to run the two-man cars with riding mechanic. Dirt tracks are allowed to race the "dual Control" buggies, but not with the mechanic riding.
