TWO HURT AND CARS SMASHED IN INDIANAPOLIS RACE ' INDIANAPOLIS, Itfd., May 31.- AmerlCA'S 1980 speed crown—one of the most costly ever won—had passed today t6 Billy Arnold, youthful Chicago driver, who sent a racing automobile through a maelstrom of death and destruction at more than 100 miles an hour to win the annual 600 mile Memorial day classto on the Indianapolis/speedway ,here yester* day.' ! ( • i I . Left on Arnold's trial was a toll of one killed, two critically injured, six hurt and $80,000 worth of smashed and twisted automobiles. The 176,000 Spectators saw a dozen terrific crashes, including one in' which six cars piled Up. Holding an almost Constant lead, Arnold finished the grind in fbur hours, 68 minutes and 40 seconds, an average of ,100.448 miles an hour. The record is 101.13 wiles an hour, made in 1926 by Peter De Paolo. Death came not to one of the thirty- eight famous drivers, but to an obscure mechanic, Paul Marshall, 34, ot' Detroit, Who was riding In a car driven by his brother, Cy, of Indianapolis, who was believed dying today. Cy swung Wide on a turn to break away frorrt a group Of cars and his machine skidded over .a 30-inch concrete curb and down a six foot embankment. ' ' With the title of America's pfemler speed driver, Arnold received $52,150 DUNCANSVILLE WINS INJTIAL GAME ON HOME LOT 14-9 The Duncansville Blair county league baseball club celebrated Memorial day by taking their first game of the season on their own field, after losing their first -two games on their own lot. The game was a slug-fest with Williamsburg having the edge on the home nine in the matter of hits, with 18 to their credit to Duncansvllle's 17. The final score was 14 to 9.. was attended by a large number of holiday fans and the exhibition was a thrilling one throughout, marked by numerous plays of outstanding brillancy by players on both teams'. Folding honors were awarded to Jimmy Fredericks, Irontown rightfielder and "Shortstop Bradley, while batting honors were given Shortstop Snyder of th'e visiting club, whose bat held four safeties in five trips, including three triples. Relief pitcher Thompson clouted a, homer over the rlghtfteld fence. Neither starting pitcher lasted long and after the early innings the game became a tight affair, with the home nine holding an early lead. Fine pitching exhibitions were given by both relief .nitchers, although both were batted rather freely, adding just the punch that was pleasing to the large group of fans assembled. Ralph Piper began hurling for the home nine but before the second man was disposed of In the first ,/ound he discovered it was not his day and he voluntarily retired from the mound. Hoover was called over from the hot corner and home fans had a real treat in the manner in which the big boy served them to the invaders. One sad mistake was grooving one for pitcher Thompson i'n the sixth, which the opposing hurler promptly gave a ride over the barrier. Lang, starting pitcher for Williamsj- burg survived the first round, which netted the home nine a pair of runs against five scored by the visitors, but he experienced all kinds of trouble in the second round after one batter was disposed of and Thompson had to be called for mound duty. This inning netted the Irontowners 7 more mark- era and gave them a commanding lead which was not seriously threatened throughput th«j remainder of the battle. Bill Grebfrled popular Flood city, player played hla initial game with Duncansville and hla work behind the bat was one of the bright features of the afternoon ' pastime. Grebfried in five trips to the plate made three hits and scored a pair of the Duncansville runs. No Williamsburg runners stole a base on him. Wllliamsburg scored five times in the opening round on five singles, a triple, a double and a walk. They added another in the second on a triple and a single. -A pair of singles produced another counter in the fourth. In the sixth Thompson's homer boosted the score one more notch, while the final counter came in the eighth on Snydor's third triple which was followed by an outfield fly upon which ho scored after the catch, •<• Duncansville's two counters in the opening round were produced when Bradley opened with a double and succeeding batters gathered two singles. In their big inning, the second, seven runs wore the result of a pair of free tickets combined with six singles. This barrage of base hita sent Lang to the showers. Duncansville added three more tal- BLAIR COUNTY LEAGUE. Scores. Roaring Spring 10, Penn Central 1 Duncanaville 14, Wllliamsourg 9. Martlnsburg 12, Claysburg 3. Standing, .

The other 24 machines were forced .out because,of crackups, burned out' spark plugs, faulty gas or oil lines, bent axles, stripped gears, warped --valves or defective carburetors. ; The most hair-raising incident in the race was the pileup of six machines arter Fred Roberts, relief driver for' De Paolo sent his Duesenberg into a .spin on a turn. His machine was Hammered by the Trexler special' entered by Marion Trexler. In a few seconds the cars of Babe Stapp, Lou Mbdre,/ Johnny Seymour and Deacon Litz were jammed in with the first two disabled maohlnes. In that pileup several drivers were injured. Lltz sustained a broken right wrist, Seymour severe cuts and the others were bruised or otherwise injured. It was then, also, that De Paolo's hope of again winning the race went glimmering. His car was hauled to the pits, a hopeless wreck.

RISES TO FAME SHOltTY OANTLON Detroit race driver won second place ut Indianapolis yesterday finishing seven miles behind the winner of the race. WATCHING the SCOREBOARD Interest of the nation's baseball fans today centered on the meeting ofvthe Philadelphia Athletlca and the Washington Senators, current American league leaders, at Shibe Park, Philadelphia. Previous to yesterday's double victory, the Athletics had won only two of nine atarta against Washington this season. Al Simmons and rookie shortstop Eric MuNair, gavu the Macks a 7 to ti victory in the 13-inning series opener. The second game was a free-hitting contest in which the Athletics pounded four pitchers for a 15 to 11 win. Brooklyn's Robina broke a tie with the St. Louis Cardinals for first place in the National league, taking both ends of a doubleheader from Philadelphia, while the Cards were dropping a pair of games to Chicago. Clise Dudley scored an easy victory in the opener, piling up an 11 to 1 score. The Robins won the second game 11-9. The Chicago Cuba dropped the St. Louis Cardinals to second by taking both gamea of a doubleheuder, a to 0 und 9 to 8. Clarence Bluir, subbing for Rogers Hurnsby who broke his w.ukle in th« morning game, drove in 6 of the Cubs' runs in the afternoon tilt with a homer and two doubles. A double victory over the Boston Red Sox, 6 to 5, and 7 to 3, gave the New York Yankees third place in the American league. The defeats extended Boston's losing streak to 13 games. » New York's slipping Giants relinquished lifth place in the National league to the Boston Braves, loaing two tough games by 6 to 5 scores. Detroit won from Cleveland twice, 5 to 2 and 9 to ti, dropping the Indians io fourth place in the American league. Pittsburgh and Cincinnati divided a doubleheader, the Reds winning the first game, 9 to 1, behind Keel Lucas' effective pitching, and the Piratea piling up an early lead to win the aecond, 7 to 6. A 3-run attack in the tenth gave the Chicago White Sox a 7 to 4 victory over St. Louis, but ti errors by his males prevented Ted Lyona from taking the second, the Browns nosing out ». 4 to 3 triumph. NEW BOSTON Owners of the Boston Braves parted with three of their players and some of their cash In order that they might acquire from Portland in the Coast league the sensational Hunter Chatham, above, to perform at shortstop In the bean town. Buster is a little fellow, but his size has never been a handicap to him thus far in his baseball career. \ ' YANKEES BOLSTER OP TEAM BY TRADE NEW YOR& May_31.—Bob Shawkey, who once waved his red sleeved arm so Effectively as a pitcher for the New (York Yankee* when they were practically invincible in the baseball World, has just completed the most important-deal the club has made in many years in his new capacity as manager. The Yankees today will send/Waite Hoyt, for ten years their star 1 right- hander, and Mark Koenig, veteran shortstop, to the Detroit Tigers, in exchange for Harry Rice, outfielder, Owen Carroll, pitcher, and George WestHng, shortstop. Not siflce the days when Colonel Ruppert and Cap Huston used to trade players wholesale with Harry Frazee, then owner of the Boston Red Sox, have the Yankees made such a major move to strengthen themselves for the American league race, in which they now stand third. Shawkey believes that, in Carroll former Holy Cross star, he ia obtaining additional ..strength for his right handed pitching staff, Hoyt having proved none too effective this season. In Harry Rice, the Yankees Vget a badly needed outfielder and a left handed pinch hitterf while Westling may act as reserve inflelder or may be used in a 'further trade. Koenig has been the regular Yankee shortstop for four seasons, barring a few months, and while he is known as an erratic fielder he is a consistent hitter, or was until Shawkey benched him in favor of Lynn Lary. Rice, as a hitter, is the superior of both Sam Byrd and Dusty Cooke, who have been alternating in left field for New York. He is hitting over .300 this season. . ' ALTOONA WORKS CHAMPS HAVE TROUBLE IN SEVEN STANZAS A trio of Altoona Works pitchers were pretty well used up as' part of the Memorial day celebration at the Cricket field yesterday afternoon, the Havana Cuban Stars grabbing a pair of victories by continued clubbing. . The Cubans won 12-7 in the first game and tame through 7-1 in the second game, the double defeat being the first handed to the Pennsy system champions for a good many years. Danny '/Lefty" Grove and Herb Bolger divided the hurling in the first game and both of them were touched up for plenty of hits. Moe Roberts went the limit in the second game, which was halted after seven rounds. Both games were interesting even though the scores appear lopsided.

RIGHT HAN0ERS CLASSIER PORTSIDERS IN BOTH L&M fly JOHN B. FOSTER. (Copyright, 1930, b* AltooB* Mirror.) NEW.YORK, May 31.—White Lefty Grove and Sad Sam Jonei are fighting it out tooth and naft for pitching honors In the American league, right- hander against left, a perusal of the pitching columns for both of the leagues shows that, taken all in all, the right-handera are showing the way to the port-aiders this year. Sam Jones won six games for Washington, throwing right-handed curves to the batters, and Left Grove won six for the Athletics, delivering from the other side. Grove has been closer to defeat than Jones. Jones has won one game each from New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit and St. Louis.
