He may leave for home some timo next week. DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 6. CS?) -- Capt. Malcolm Campbell has become the first man ever to travel at the rate of four mile? a mirute in an automobile, but he is not satisfied. Despite warnings that conditions were not -the best for super speed, Campbell drove his huge Bluebird II over the beach sands here Thursday to an astounding new world's record of 245.733 miles an hour. Is Not Satisfied. . From this dizzying height of speed, the dauntless 46-year-old Englishman Friday surveyed his achievement and wanted to better It. If the weather and beach conditions permit he said he was ready to go out and try to lower his own mark before he returns to England. His plans for Friday were indefinite but if he felt good and the other factors were favorable he said he might try for a five kilometer record. Campbell is the only man now living who has attained a speed on land of more than 200 miles an hour. The rest, Ray Keech, Sir H. O. D. Segrave, Lee Bible, and Frank Lockhart, have met death behind the wheel. Killed Behind Wheel. Segrave was killed while trying for a water speed mark in England. It was-Segrave's record of 231 miles an hour that Campbell wrested Thursday. On the first run, Campbell flashed thru the measured mile at 246.575 miles an hour. He returned and was clocked at 244.897 miles an hour. Two runs are necessary for an official record, the mark being the average of the two speeds. Gets Big Thrill. Despite soft places in the sand left by a receding tide,, the car held the course like a bullet. Campbell said a big thrill came on the south run when the car took a', bad swing as he swerved to miss 'I'a soft spot. He couldn't afford to take his foot off the accelerator be- uauae- he "·"would "lose "speed so he IVillN U MASON CITY, IOWA, FEBRUARY 1931 EVERY WEEK held it down and the straightened out neatly. machine BEEL ON CANVAS Swea City Show Draws Large Crowd; Prelims Are Mixed.

Oliphant, now an insurance salesman in New York, insists tirat it is "all the bunk;" that he got nothing but benefit, physically and mentally, out of his assorted activities which included football, basketball, track, fencing, boxing and wrestling.
