Long And Kneilson Winners The disqualification of Carlos Rcdriquezz, Spanish wrestler, gave Tiger Long of Florida the decision )n their jnatch at the Legion arena here last night. Long was on the floor and about out as result of a fierce attack in which Rodriguez neglected to observe most of In rules of the mat and when failed to halt Long was awarded St. Louis 21 the fall and the match lo Ihe thunder of his motor, Ihe whlluc and screech of his llre.s, ihe ro;ir of his 32 competitors. Legs will be hot and burned from splashing oil, and all over he will ache from the cramped confinement of the cockpit and the steady- steady pounding and pull of n little car rollliif; at top speed. II will bc totiijh then, but noth- ng like the fourth hundred. Then lis sun-baked helmet will feel like a stove 11(1 on his head. His eyes, lis ears, his bones, his muscles vlll begin to scream to his mind hat the punishment has gone far enough. And his mind, tlrcrt taa. vlll'try to keep the secret that the vorst is yet to come—that this Is list hell.' and that murder is right wound the corner. "That last hundred miles is a >nre ami.simple killer," Siapp told ne yesterday as he did his final Inkeriiij over his sleek little Alfa ?cmeo. "You feel as if yon were on fire all over. Your eyes are like coals, and your nose blisters from Ihe sting of burning fuel. There isn't a spot that doesn't ache. And your car seems to know you're worn out and trys lo start running you. U fights you In the turns until you curse it, and you wonder If you'll have the strength lo yank It arcimd the bentl coming- up. "Your mind Is so fatigued it nearly ciuils working. You find yourself talking to yourself, Imagining a thousand and one things. You begin to question what you of time and distance goes screwy. This worries the rlcvi! out of you loo, because you've driven long enough to know all the dangers, and just how bad one little silo. one liny, lapse, can be. And the awful part of it is, that you know (hat .the last, hundred is the one you've, got to travel in lo win; ihat it's the last hundred where the money Is won or lost. So you have to drive yourself, beal yourself, nlmosl, lo keep going, keep trying, and fighting. It's a job for the devil himself, those last hundred miles.'" If all goes well—and may Lady Luck take a Iminl at the wheel on these turns—Babe Btapp will be entering Ihat cruel final hundred pretty soon. Keep that foot on the floorboard, flabc, apd bang 'cr in. Then we'll have a beer or two.
