Blythevffle (Arts.) Gotirttr News - Friday, May 26,19OT — Page Watch Turbocar in Indy By DAVE BURGIN INDIANAPOLIS - (NEA) Newspaper Enterprise Assn. INDIANAPOLIS - (NBA) Nerves in (he aulo racing fraternity become frazzled this time of year. The Indianapolis 500 — everything about it — will do that to nu. But the 1967 Indy race on Memorial Day may rank as the strangest of ali. Eerie, in fact. Practice sessions so far have been wild. In.the pits, people who are the best of freidns are snapping at each other. On the track, the speeds are terrific you. and so are the spinouts and wall 1 icvumin.ii «. ..... .--. and suphistication of the 196/lgined car which began in earn machinry is, gosh, incredible! Nerve - jjangling begins, of course, with the most contra- versial car and design ever to hit Indy. It's Andy Granatelli's Turbocar, that odd, but sleek- looking thing with the Pratt- Whitney helicopter turbine power plant. 'Just because it is radically new doesn't mean it's unpredictable," said a veteran racing engineer, his tongue deep in cheek, of the Turbocar. I predict it will average anywhere from 160 to 200 m.p.h. at Indy, no more, no less. Even with the Turbocar, the revolution" of the rear - en est three years ago is not yet over, not when you consider there are still some old faithful front - engine Offy's around. What if the Turbocar runs away with it, many are asking? If it should, and it could with Parnelli (Put - Yer - Foot- In - The - Carburetor) Jones at the wheel, the postrace hassle about fair and equal specifications will be on. So will some soul - searching by car owners who put millions into suddenly obsolete machines. Another thing about the race which strikes long-lime Indy fans as weird is the list of drivers. Who in heaven's name is this Jochen Rindt?" 'I know 10 USAC drivers who'd give anything to get a ride in this race," one oldlimer told us, 'but where do they come up with this guy Uindt?" Rindt, the very talented Grand Prix driver from Austria, is in because a fellow foreigner named Jimmy Clark and another named Graham Hill, back-to- back Indy winners, have made it easier — fashionable, in fact — for foreigners to get rides. Underlying it all is danger. In recent years, many believe, luck has come to play too much a part in this race. Another of those 12-car, first - lap crackups and one of the old front- engine Offy's could come home a winner.

Indy practice opened April 29. The weird tone we speak of was set that first weekend when Cale Yarhorough, a NASCAR man who built his rep in stockers, set some weird first. He was the first 1967 driver to crash in the pits, the first driver onto the tract, the first to determliu rou icHUUl. nuM paragraph opposite <UW$ «hlcH Include rour blrtb d»« SATURDAY GENERAL TENDENCIES: tyvoleste UB- during the work week should be contacted now.

She has been taunted and teased about it ever since she can remember. I have been in correspondence with a reputable plastic surgeon, who will schedule her for an operation during summer vacation if I bring her in and he thinks she's "mature" enough. My problem is my husband. He thinks our daughter is "beautiful" the way she is and doesn't need that kind of operation. He blames me for taking her side and says if it doesn't come out right it will be my fault. We don't expect miracles, but almost anything over what she has new. What can I do, Abby? HER MOTHER BEAR MOTHER: Your husband has "Papa myopia." If your daughter has been taunted and teased about her nose, she "needs" the operation to give her the self • confidence so necessary to a teenager. Take your daughter to the plastic surgeon and get his opinion. (If he's reputable, he will be honest.) I vote with you and your daughter. DEAR ABBY: Auggie and I have gone together for 2 years and we planned to announce our engagement officially with a ring at the wedding of Auggie's sister next month. When we told Auggie's mother of our plan she vetoed it on the spot, saying it would take all the attention away from the bride. We just thought that since all Auggies relatives and friends would be at the wedding it would be an ideal time to make our announcement. I am terribly disappointed. What do you think of Auggie's mother? What should we do? DISAPPOINTED DEAR DISAPPOINTED: I think Auggie's mother was ont of line, but in the interest of future family harmony, respect her wishes. (P. S. There is a lot to be said for keeping one's mouth shut.) DEAR ABBY: I am so disgusted with myself I could just die. I sent my Ift-year-old daughter off to school with no breakfast because she was slow in getting dressed. She was crying when she left, and I shouted after her that I didn't care if she ever came back! Abby, I acted like a maniac, yelling and scream ing and banging things around, and all because she was a little behind schedule, which isn't such a s e r i o u s crime. After she left I sat down and cried. I feel so sorry for that child. She is really a sweet girl and I shouldn't be so hard on her, but it seems like I'm always picking on her for something. I am so ashamed of myself. What's wrong with me? Are there other mothers whs act this way? ASHAMED DEAR ASHAMED: Yes, there are other mothers who act that way, bnt they blame the child. Few are wise enough to admit that the trouble could be with them. When did you last have a thoro check up? See your doctor. Perhaps your nerves could use a tonic, DEAR ABBY: I'll bet four bits that the jerk who complained because his wife went to bed with rollers in her hair every night goes without shaving from Friday until Monday — unless he has some social engagement on the weekend. So who does he shave for? His wife, or the people he works with? And he probably drools over the dolls who spend 2 hours on their hair and make-up every morning. These are the ones who want to have their cheese cake and eat it, too. Defensively. J. M. H. IN DALLAS How has the world been treating you? Unload your problems on Dear Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069 For a personal, unpublished reply, encloye a self - addressed, stamped envelope.

In another part of the world, Lorenzo Bandini, who had told friends he couldnl; get the thought of driving his first Indy race out of his mind, died from injuries sustained in a Monaco Grand Prix crash. Bill Cheesbourg has been named as Ban- dinis replacement. Pick a winner? We like young ideas and new thinking (not to mention controversy), so well be looking for Parnelli and the Turbocar in the winners circle. SPINOFFS: Europeans reportedly are going nuts over the expected Ford - Ferrari duel at >Le Mans, France, on June 10. Le Mans officials expect huge crowds. And Ford isn't getting caught in Uncle Sam's image abroad. Ford fans over there, we find, are the young people (they dig Fords Le Mustang!), while older generations still carry the Ferrari banner ... Speaking of Mustang, there is so much Mustang ;rass grow under your feet — but literally.
