Monday Evening, May 20, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Eterea 24 Positions Still Open In 500-Mile Race Field Showers Wash Out Sunday Time Trials Pat O'Connor Earns Pole Spot in Lineup With Average Speed of 143.977 MPH in Saturday Qualifications. INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—Twenty- four positions remained open today for the annual 500-mile Speedway auto race, promising a hectic final two days of qualifications next weekend. Intermittent showers washed out yesterday's lime trials, and about four hours of qualifying time wy; lost by rain Saturday, when only nme drivers managed to complete their four-lap 10-mile tests. Fastest of the qualifiers was handsome Pat O'Connor, North Vernon, Ind., who roared around the "Brickyard" at an average speed of 143.977 miles per hour to rail down the coveted pole spot in the Memorial Day classic. Rookie Eddie Sachs, Allentown, Pa., an alternate in last year's "500", was the second fastest qualifier at 143.822. The others, in order of their speeds, were: Troy Ruttman, Lynnwood, Calif., "500" champion in 1952, 142.772; Fred Agabashian, Walnut Creek, Calif., 142.102: Jimmy Heecc of Indianapolis, 142.006; Ed Elisian, Oakland, Calif., 141.777; Al Keller,. Greenacrcs, Fla., 141.398, and K!mer George, of Indianapolis, 140.729. George is the only other "500" newcomer qualifed so far. O'Connor, one of the top favorites for the pole position, and for race honors, had rain on his side. For, half an hour after he finished his sprint, Ruttman hit an average of better than 144 mph, when a shower closed the track. The sec- end time big Troy climbed into the cockpit of his brand now racer, lie was nearly two miles an hour slower. National driving champion Jimmy Bryan, Phoenix, Ari/.., a!so ran into hard luck. He warmed, up his car late Saturday when another downpour closed the track for good. Bryan will be first in line to qualify next Saturday. However, Speedway officials said no extra qualifying time would be set aside provided the 2.')-car field was completed by 7 p.m. EST next Sunday. Twenty cars were lined up along the pit wall yesterday ready to qualify, but not an engine was turned and about 50,000 fans went home disappointed. Police estimated Saturday's crowd between 115,000 and 130,000. The powerful Novi to be driven by Paul Russo, Canoga Park, Calif., was among the roadsters that did not get a chance last weekend. Husso was the top choice for the polo position. Officials believed a combination of rainy weather, smaller engines and caution following a scries of practice crashes and other mishaps held down Hie speed of the qualifiers. The average now was 342.339—slightly slower than the field average of 142.507 lasl ye-ar, wiien "500" winner, Pat Flaherty, set time trial records of 14(>.or>(! i fW ° nc and four h '" s er to DePouw, Hanover Win Track Titles Ity IJNITKIi I'HKSS DePauw edged favored Bui win the Indiana Collcghue Conference track and field meet Saturday while Hanover was running away wilh another llooslur College Conference truck Utle.

Rigney Likes Braves Again MILWAUKEE (UP — The Milwaukee Braves are "up to their ears" in the National League pennant race, says New York Giants' Manager BKI Rigney, who last year jumped off the Braves bandwagon after an early season ride. Last season, after the Braves had beaten the Giants in an early season game here, lligney felt the Braves would dethrone the Brooklyn Dodgers. Twenty-four hours later his Giants beat Milwaukee, and Rigney changed his mind. "I'll have to revise my prediction. I'll pick the Dodgers. The Braves don't have enough scrap," said Rigney then, But a year later, Rigney is back on the Braves bandwagon even after the Giants beat Milwaukee li-3 Sunday. "They're up to their ears in the pennant race. Sure, they're having a little trouble with pitching now, but what other team in the league has their pitching potential?" he said. Rravos starters have completed only two games In the past three- weeks. "Even with this failure to complete games, look where they are in the standings," said Kifiney about second place Milwaukee, two games off the pace. "'flick spirit Is a little heller, and who else has a hitter like Hank Aaron," asked Rigney. "It'll be a close race, with the Bravas, Cincinnati and Brooklyn right up there. Cincinnati is hot now, but I don'!, think they can hold the pace. The Dodgers are feeling their age," said lllgncy. Boilermakers Retain Big State Golf Title WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UP) —Purdue's golfers easily beat Notre Dame and Indiana to retain the Big State Golf title Saturday. Sophomore lUrlcy Drake of Purdue boat his teammate Joe Campbell by one stroke with a SB-hole total of 143 to lake the individual title. Purdue's tenm scored a total of 750. Runner-up Notre Dame had 782 and Indiana 1107. In dual matches, Purdue beat Bold Ruler Finds Niche BALTIMORE (UP)—Bold Ruler shaped up today as the horse to beat in next month's Belmont Stakes now that trainer Sunny Jim Filzsimmons has found a way to ease the pressure on the young colt's tender mouth. Few persons in bhe crowd oE 32,856 at Pimlico Saturday noticed a piece of cloth tied to the bit in Bold Ruler's mouth wihen the Wheatley . Stable whiz galloped to a two-length victory in .he Preakness Stakes. But this strip of gauze .played ;:n important role in Bold Ruler's triumph. Because he cut his tongue as a yearling, the son of Nasrullah has been a tougfri horse to rate. As Fitzsimmons explained, "If you put too much pressure on his mouth, it hurts iiim." So before the Preakness; Sunny i Jim cut a narrow strip of cloth • from a leg bandage and '.led one end of it to the bit. The string: circled Bold Ruler's mouth, hold-j ing his tongue in place, and was j tied on the outside of the bit, "It helped take the pressure off his mouth and put it on his jaw," the 82-year-old trainer said. The Belmont, third jewel in the Triple Crown, is the next major objective for Bold Ruler, who blew his chance of scoring a Triple Crown sweep when he was fourth in the Kentucky. Derby. But his Preakness triumph smashed all chances of Iron Liege, the Kentucky Derby winner, becoming the ninth horse to win each of the three - year old classics. Iron Liege was lucky to save second place from the fast closing Inside Tract and nevor was able to threaten Bold Ruler, who was permitted to run all the way with a minimum of pressure on the bit. The Preakness was the seventh stakes triumph for Bold Ruler and the winner's purse of $65,250 increased his lifetime earnings to $306,825.

A group of "sailors" from the Military Academy defeated the Hudson River Yacht Racing Assn. in a yacht race on the Hudson River Sunday, lil-12. Sport Parade By OSCAR FRALEY United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (UP) — Horsemen agree that a jockey's most priceless gift is the abilRy to "rate" a horse so that he won't wear himself out. The li'Xe man with such a talent is said to "have a stopwatch in his heud." All the great ones had it—from Tod Sloan on down the picket line — nnd the racing fraternity holds that Ihls is the main factor in separating the men from '..be other mites. This sense of pace is what made Eddie Arcaro the greatest .slakes rider of all lime. There's Nil Question Of that there can be no question. Arcara led the slakes winning jockeys for 10 years. For six straight years, from 1050 Ihrough 1.S55,. he scored more slakes triumphs than any other little man in silk. The major reason, they'll tell you around horse highway, was because of. his ability lo "rr.le" a horse. So Saturday, at old Pimlico, Sunny Jim Filzsimmons watched as Eddie was boosted aboard Ruler for the Preakness. Then the veteran trainer told him: "Just let him go, Eddie, don't try lo rale him." Ho mighl have added: "Just be sure you don't fall off." Because with Eddie sitting up there as if he was In a rocking chair, Bold Ruler took the bit in l:is tcelli and ran the mile and three-sixteenlh race all by himself. The coll led from gate to wire and Eddie just held the reins and fetched him a fow whacks now and then to'keep his mind on his business as Bold Ruler took the run for the black- eyed susans by a fat Iwo lenglhs, "It proves that I lost the Kentucky Derby by trying lo rate him," Eddie admitted after it wus over. "The colt has a lender month. When I tried to hold him in at Churchill Downs I hurt him and he simply lost interest and wouldn't run," Horsemen agree that Uie ability to "rule" a horse makes a great jockey. But with the likes of Bold Ruler, Arcoro foels like a motorman on an escalator. W. L. Pet.
