Two News Phone 3333 (INDIANA) REPUBLICAN Ad Photle 2222 Monday, October 19, 1939. SPORT SLANTS By the Associated Press When Mr. Gilhooley of the Indianapolis Gilhooleys put in an appearance at the Roosevelt raceway, Westbury, L. the scene of the 300-mile race on Columbus day, more than half a hundred racing stars of this country and Europe declined invitations to meet the gentleman formally. this way: When a racing driver meets Mr. Gilhooley he generally finds himself in the middle of a ditch with what used to be a racing automobile draped around his shoulders and other parts of his anatomy. In the process of becoming tangled, the driver invariably has undergone a most uncomfortable 30 or 40 seconds. a made its debut in racing nomenclature during the hectic competition of the Indianapolis 500-miler in 1914. The identical circumstances of that performance will never be repeated. Mr. Gilhooley, whose first name is Ray, has allied himself with the racing team headed by Dave Evans, ironman of Indianapolis, and sponsored by the wealthy Brooklyn sportsman, Mac Hailey. Ray acts as racing agent for Mr. Hailey. Now, a at Indianapolis, Roosevelt raceway or any other speedway in this country, is a spin which ends abruptly in a crackup.A driver is not eligible to say he did a if he rights his car. He must go through all the motions, including winding up in a convenient ditch. There has been of discussion as to how the term was introduced into the dictionary. known to me, when the tire blew out it had gone with such force that it inside out, wrapping itself securely around my chain drive and locking the rear wheels. Thus, when I accelerated the result was to spin me even more furiously. All in all, my car made six complete revolutions and then went over the fall. I had done the first not the end of the by any means. While I was spinning, Eddie Rickenbacker, another race driver then, not the flying hero or speedway official, came along behind me and just avoided the Gilhooley merry-go-round, running down on the safety apron. Old Joe Dawson was not as fortunate. He attempted to get between me and the outside wall but allow himself enough clearance and over the wall he went. Louis Disbrow just managed to get down on the safety apron. When Rick, Dawson and Disbrow had decided where to park themselves, my car picked out a convenient spot to hurdle and over we went. Outside of getting a section of the steering wheel through my shoulder, I a scratch. Another Honor Gilhooley, a tall, husky, haired man with twinkling blue eys, grins reflectively. had another claim to attention in those he says. drove Barney famous Green Dragon for the last time. This was a specially built job with a 150-horsepower engine that could perk up to 110 miles an hour. I got off to a flying start, over in New Jersey, lest control, went through a fence, turned over and knocked out a fistful of teeth. The front wheels collapsed, and the chassis bowed in, and when they got through 1 ooking for missing parts they decided that the Green Dragon had quit racing for Stepped On The Gas happened on Decoration day, explains Mr. Gilhoo- ley. that race at Indianapolis I was piloting an Isotta- Fras- chini with a chain drive, a heavy, cumbersome car, but one which, for those days, had plenty of speed. It was in the 105 mile, and I was speeding around the south turn was a crack like a cannon. I knew there had been a blowout, and felt the car going into a spin. In such a situation, a race driver will accelerate. Down went my foot.

Chicago The University of Chicago football fortunes, at a low ebb for more than a decade, have suffered another blow in the loss for the season of Ned Bartlett, speedy halfback from Glendale, who suffered a brain concussion in 37-to-0 rout of the Maroons. Bartlett, who has suffered similar head injuries in the past few years, was advised never to play again and his loss robs Coach Clark Shaughnessy of the player about whom the Maroon offen- sive hopes for the season had I been built. Not since the days of erns trouble may be brewing and Bruder has injury so wrecked the hopes of a potentially great athlete. Starting as a sophomore, Bartlett, extremely fast and shifty, stamped himself as one of the best open-field runners at Chicago in several seasons. Against Michigan he scored two touchdowns within six minutes and otherwise distinguished himself with hard, accurate tackles and a demonstration he already had acquired the art of blocking. But he never again duplicated this performance. Soon after the Michigan battle he suffered a badly wrenched knee and was of little use for the remainder of the season. In his junior year he sprained an ankle several times before putting himself permanently on the unavailable list by cracking two ribs during one of his rare game appearances. Returning to school this fall, i he reported for practice in fine physical shape, but in a preseason scrimmage he injured his hip. Against Lawrence college in the Maroon opener, however, he showed to advantage, breaking away for a 41-yard touchdown sprint, scoring another touch; down on a shorter dash and 1 passing for good yardage all aft! ernoon. Then against Vanderbilt, in the opening minutes of the game, he collided with a teammate in spilling a Commodore. He was in a hospital for several days before being released to learn that further football might prove serious.
