Calif.. complained after the race that Jones car was spilling oil onto the track just before he took the winner's checkered flap. However, Chief Steward Harlan Fengler refused to wave Jones into the pits. "You can't take this race away from a man on snap judgment," driver moved like a man in ajsaid Fengler, who also noted that dream after his record victory in the rich Indianapolis 500-mile Memorial Day Classic. "I just can't get it into my head," Jones said softly into the confusion of the victory celebration around him. other cars were throwing oil. No official protest can be filed until race officials meet this morning, but as one veteran of the race remarked, comolaints are a tradition the night after the race but "after a night's sleep J. C.

"You won the race, Rufus," Agajanian shouted to the man who was born Rufus Parnell Jones. "You're"the greatest " Jones, who had won the pole position for the second straight year, was favored in the race, but had to drive his heart out to beat Scotsman Jimmy Clark in a rear- engine Lotus-Ford. Oark was one of those who Clark, No. 2 in world road racing standings last year, and Dan Gurney, another Grand Prix racer from Costa Mesa. Calif., ran 2-3 behind Jones through the late stages of the race. After charging his hardert for 3% hours, Jones crossed the finish line ,a tick under 34 seconds ahead of Clark.
