George E. T. Eyston, 39 year old English driver, and Ab Jenkins, American speed ace, streak after new records in streamlined automobiles o£ revolutionary design.

He piloted his queer-looking Speed of the Winds at 167.0998 miles an hour to shatter the world's speed record for 10 miles last September. Eleven days later, he broke the 12-hour record at 139.847 miles an hour and the 24-hour run at 140.522 miles. The Flying Spray is powered with a 12-cylinder Ricardo Aviation Diesel engine with a 17-liter piston ca- AZETTE S RTS Louis-Schmeling Ducats Range From $40 Down to $3.50 pacity .. . rating it up to 900 horsepower.

Campbell's Bluebird' generated 2.400 horsepower. Jenkins expects his new juggernaut to develop from 3,200 to 3,600 horsepower. * * * The new car, costing approximately 550,000, is being built at the Lycoming plant at Williamsport, Pa., and will be completed this fall or early next spring. * * * Life Begins ...

It is another Derby, the best horse will win, and he may go on to become great . . . but 't will return to these peaceful, grass acres after it is all over. * * * Perhaps, in the dewy dawn Derby day, while the horse that wi win frets nervously in his stall Louisville, another little bundie fur with four sticks for legs is bor on one of the Kentucky farms.

HIGHEST OF HIGH PRICES SET FOR RINGSIDE SPACES Coming Bout Expected to Get Million and Half Dollar Crowd Past Wickets. NEW YORK, OT»--Mike Jacobs, the fight promoter who brought back the "million dollar" gate last summer with the aid of Detroit's dark destroyer, Joe Louis, plans another advance on "boom" times for the Louis-Max Schmeling fight at the Yankee stadium June 18. Jacobs announced his price scale for tickets Wednesday with a "top" of 540, the highest ever set for a non-championship bout. The only time the scale has run higher was when $50 was asked for ringside seats for Jack Dempsey's heavyweight title defense against Georges $\ Carpentier at Jersey City in 1921 and the same fig-ure was charged Eor "patron press" seats--sold only to a r e s t r i c t e d public--for the Struyk Ineligible at Cornell Schmeling-Paulino Uzcudun battle here in June, 1929. At the other end of the scale, general admission tickets will cost .$3.50, including tax. Jacobs predicted that at such prices the bout will draw gross gate receipts of .?1,500,000. Some of the experts were willing to go Mike one better in that respect, pointing out that the Louis-Max Baer bout last summer drew nearly $950,000, largely because of the Detroit Negro's sensational rise. They said the June battle should attract about as many customers and a considerable larger "gate." Alterations at the Yankee stadium, when complete, will increase the capacity of the park for boxing to somewhere between 90,000 and 100,000.

BOXING 30 ROUNDS--8 BOUTS TON1GHT-8:30 Mason City Armory Sponsored by ffie American Legion MICK FACES OLD PROBLEMS AGAIN -low to Win Without Hank in Lineup, That's Question Before Tiger Boss. WASHINGTON. (.T)--Mickey Cochrane, pilot of the world champion Detroit Tigers, today faced one of lis toughest managerial problems- low to win ball games without Hank' Greenberg. The lank first baseman--voted le most valuable player in the .merican league last year--will be ut of the lineup for at least a month with the wrist fracture he uffered in Wednesday's game with the Washington Nationals. Admitting his team sustained a etback worse than a string of osses when Jake Powell, fleet Vashington centerfielder, collided with Greenberg's outstretched arm, Cochrane added optimistically that the club's pitching and hitting would keep it near the top of the league. Mickey said he- was undecided whether to continue tH6 combination of Marvin Owen at first base and English at third, or to recall Rudy York, who hit well with the Bengals in spring training, from the minor league to which he was farmed. Owen, third sacker for the Tigers, was shifted to first after the accident, while English took his place at third. Today Greenbsrg, the Tigers' cleanup hitter, was carrying his wrist in a plaster cast. It's the same one injured in the 1935 world series.

Manager Cochrane was expecte to recall from Milwaukee Rudy York, the young first baseman who looked so good in the Tigers' camp this spring when Grccnberg was sulking in New York's Bronx waiting for the management to raise his salary. · Outstanding among superlative p i t c h i n g performances in other games was Leroy Parmclce's 17 inning, six hit, 2 to 1 victory for the Cardinals over the New York Giants.
