INDIANAPOLIS (UP) -Qualifications for the 500-mile Speedway auto race open Saturday and rail- birds installed Paul Russo's blue Novi as the logical contender for the coveted pole position. The powerful, 8-cylinder supercharged machine blazed around the 2%-mile oval at an average speed of better than 143 miles an hour Thursday to indicate it was ready to challenge the time trials records of 146.056 m.p.h. and 145.596 for one and four laps respectively. The marks were set by Pat Flaherty last year. The Irishman from Chicago also won the race Yesterday's Results Detroit Boston American League 100 000 010— 280 000 000 001— 150 Bunning (2-1).and House.

The new car owned by Nino Farina was wrecked in Andrews' accident. Speculation on the top performance ranged from 145 to 147 m.p.h. Much depended on the weather.

Monticello's Buddy Sims accounted for two of the new standards. He cleared 9 feet 6 inches in the pole vault to top the mark, of 9 feet set last year by Price, also of Monticello. Sims' second effort was an 18- foot -leap in the broad- jump to erase the former record of 17 feeel. 6 inches by Mike Maple of Logan last season.
