Time trials for Altoona's annual 200-mile auto race classic a week from Saturday will open next Tuesday, it was announced at tfie speedway offices today. Improvements at the mite and a quarter oval are being rushed and it is expected that the finishing touches will be applied this week-end in time to throw the track open to drivers and the public Monday. Continuing the policy established last year, fans will be admitted free to the time trials running each day. Special arrangements are being made to handle the record crowds expected to see the track initiated as ,ia two- man oval. The new '"dual control" gas buggies have never run on the local saucer, the Tipton track having been constructed in 1923» the year the one-seaters were placed on the speed trail. Much will hang in the balance from the start of the trials Tuesday and the flash of the checkered flag race day. With AlWona conceded as the fastest speedway in the world running competitive championship' races, new world records are sure to be added to the sports annals next week. These records will be recognized in both the United States and Europe, the speedway having been granted an international license which allows, world recognition and foreign competition on the local track. High speed is expected during the 200-mile dash, judging from the results of the Indianapolis grind last week. In winning the "500", Billy Arnold, youthful Chicago speedster, averaged better than 100 miles an hour, a fraction under the record held by Pete DePaolo. Altoona's average has always • been faster than the Hoosier event, indicating a speedy pace for the local classic. Miss Charlotte Feeney of 2404 West Chestnut avenue, who was chosen yesterday as "Miss Speedway" will be guest of honor during the time trials. "Miss Speedway" will take part in all affairs on the speedway and American Legion programs. Race day, she and her party will occupy a private box at the track and at the close of the classic, "Miss Speedway" will pre-^ sent the handsome Good Luck trophy of the Standard Oil company of Pennsylvania to the winner. She will also appear on a float being constructed by the speedway for the Legion parade on the eve of the race. Miss Feeney is secretary to H. H. Chcnoweth, assistant commercial manager of the Penn Central Light & Power company. QUEEN Of SPELLERS HUSHING PAVING WORK. Contractor E. L.

Contractor E. E. Stall is working on Pine alley, Twenty-seventh to Twenty-eighth streets. PENN STREET WILL OPEN ON SATURDAY i Penn street, Hollidaysburg, from Allegheny to Garber streets, will be opened for traffic on Saturday, state highway officials announce unless, perchance, the second beam test to be made on Friday should develop that further ripening of the new concrete paving should be required. However, that is not deemed likely because of the combined drouth and heat of the present week which hurries the drying out process. The last of the Penn street concrete was poured a week ago Tuesday and at the end of the first week a beam test was made. This did not Indicate that sufficient strength had developed to justify the opening of traffic; besides, the approaches from the cross streets had not been repaired by the borough officials. It was -stated at Hollidaysburg this morning, however, that when the ten-day beam test is made Friday, it will show full curing. Borough Superintendent Joseph B. Metzler has had a force of men at work at the intersections during the past couple days. Macadam is being used to level the approaches and as this can be used almost immediately, there will be no holdup from that standpoint. The thoroughfare has been cleaned of all debris the only superfluous matter remaining is the accumulation of sand dust which residents along the street fear will be jept thoroughly stirred up, once traffic starts.

CANDLEPOWER, OF BOLBSJS_ RAISED Commissioner Eynon Ha* Announced That No. 32 May Be Legally U«ed In Automobile Headlamps. HARRISBURG, June 5.—Benjamin ii. Eynon, commissioner of motor ve- ilcles, today announced that hereafter 32 candlepower bulbs may be used in automobile headlamps. For a number of years bulbs of more than 21 candle- jower have been illegal. Seventeen American states within the last tew months have sanctioned the use of 32 candlepower bulbs, and in Europe bulbs of 50, 75 and 100 candlepower are used regularly. The change in candlepower now permitted in Pennsylvania was approved by the third national Hoover conference, by the eastern conference, of motor vehicle administrators, the II- uminating Engineers' society, and Society of Automotive Engineers. "Use of the higher candlepower Is permitted because adequate lighting s an important factor in the safety, comfort and convenience of the motor- st," said Commissioner Eynon. •Analysis of non-fatal and fatal accidents shows that where the factor of headlighting is a contributory cause, nsuffictent headllghting is actually responsible for more than t\Vica as many accldenta as are glaring lights. "As one of the delegates representing Pennsylvania at the recent national conference on street and highway safety in Washington, I was so Impressed with the necessity of additional light as a means of furthering safety on our highways that, after consultation with various lighting engineers and my assistants in the bu- •eau of motor vehicles, I feel that to permit the use of increased candlepower is to contribiBe to the safety of irivers and pedestrians. "With the continuous improvement in the design of automotive lighting equipment and the increased understanding of its proper adjustment and use by the motoring public, which is being brought about by the efforts of the state highway patrol in this direction, as well as the fact that in permitting increased speeds we must lisp provide better illumination, I am of the opinion that the so-called glaring headlamp is not the major cause of our nignt accidents, and if those automobile headlamps approved by our department for use in Pennsylvania are properly focused and--ad- [usted, they will not glare, even though the candlepower of the bulb s stepped up from 21 to 32. Indeed it is highly possible that within the next few years we may see automobile leadlamps using even, higher* candlepower bulbs with greater safety. "I have long contended that glare as commonly conceived is not so much the fault of the lighting equipment as :he lack of Understanding or care of equipment on the part of the motor vehicle owner." FOREHEAD LACERATED. Carl Schraf, aged 20, of 2909 Sixth avenue, employed as a metul worker at the Dolheimer body works, was treated in the Mercy hospital dispensary yesterday afternoon for a deep laceration above the right eye suffered when he bumped his head against an automobile fender.

ROTHERT MANAGER HOME FROM SHORE The Atlantic City radio show, staged this week at the seaside metropolis and attended by a number of local people including B. E. Henderson, manager of the Rothert store, was declared to have been the greatest attempt ever made to show and demonstrate the latest and best in radio. Special trains were run to the resort from all over the country by manufacturers, a crowd of 30,000 people being estimated in attendance. , Mr. Henderson declares the beauty and perfection of the newest radios is a revelation to say nothing about combination machines of many types. The local firm, represented by Mr. Henderson, is a Majestic dealer and he states the efforts of his firm to compete with others was all that could be desired. The Majestic is placing a new electric refrigerator on the market which gives promise of taking its place alongside the greatest made. TJle advertising stunts were wonderful, according to the local visitor who went down on the special Majestic train, running from Pittsburgh on Sunday and returning home on Tuesday. He spoke" of the sail boats, of a boat shaped like a whale; of a biplane which showed, under its wings electrically, the words, "Welcome dealers." There were several blimps, amphibians and other types of flying machines, for the pleasure of the visitors, even to the point of free rides. Speaking of the beautiful cases which the season features, Mr. Henderson states one radio, standing twelve feet in heighth, was displayed on the boardwalk. It was in the newest and most highly finished type of case und attracted the attention of the multitude. The Rothert Company expects, within a very short time, to display the new Majestic radios and the Majestic refrigerators. "Courage."
