SATURDAY, -BKMEMBKtt 2.1, 1918, tfttE a.t?T«iatNSON NEWS. PA OK NINE NORWEGIAN ^ WON EASILY HdiigJalil Beat Dreed, the Latter Driving Huds(tn-Super»Six.' POftMER IISDD 3 CYLINDERS But He Drove Like a Piend and Easily Won Two Heats of the Contest. Slg Haugdahl, I ho Norwegian speed king, driving two thirds of ft racing automobile, defented Glen Hrecd piloting *n fullfledged healthy nnd full grown Hudson Super-six racing car in the much heralded match race on the track at (ho Kansas Slate Fair Friday afternoon before about fifteen thousand people. For no lens than two reasons tho raco will go down in the gnsollno sporting history as, the most rcuiark- ablo over run. In the first place the contest was tho only match affair, over staged; in which tire winning car was rated as a tour cylinder machtho but won tho race from start to finish on three cylinders. In the second place it was the only match raco when; a winning driver in tho first lteat and Ills manager absolutely refused to allow the substitution of'anoiuor car when their opponent had met with an accident and could hot' finish I ho race except under what would bo ordinarily a prohibitive handicap. Norwegian Game. To Haugdahl is due considerable credit for his judgment and driving ability. After finding his car was wrecked or that hn hud crippled his ouglno and had n blownout piston in one cylinder he decided to go through with the race and lose it rather than disappoint tho spectators. However Just about tho lime that the litUo Norwegian had made up his mind on ft course of action, tho manager of Glen-Hrecd decided lo allow tho UBO of a Briscoe cur but still maintained thHt as Breed had only one car with him and would have to give up flic raco If ho broke down Haugdahl in view of his mishap should forfeit the 1 1,000, but the race could bo finished with Haugdahl using Jules Ellingboe's car. Worked on It. Haugdahl while the half hour discussion was going on between I ho fair officials .and Starter Sloan and the manager 6l Qlon Breed, was cleaning the spark plugs and disconnecting a cylinder In preparation tax the sac- rlfico he was to make in finishing the raco on a three cyllndordd'car. Ureed won-tho toss for position in the flrBt heat and Haugdahl hud the right to select the style of start. The local man took,Uie pole peu'llion and Haugdahl selected a rolling atari, In less than a minute the/cars wore off with Haugdahl £0 far in the lead that Breed looked; hopelessly out of tho race. But In tho seuoud lap It was noticed that Haucdahl was having trouble and that his engine was missing badly. He kept on gaining on Breed until tha sixth lap and then he held his own until the eighth lap. On the ninth lap the little Norwegian had to quit entirely and Breed rolled across the lape an easy winner. Then a Dispute. Then camo the dispute over tho right of Haugdahl to start in another car. Finally Secretary Sponsler threatened to call off the race If the second heat was not started imme-' dlntely and Haugdahl announced that ho would'try to finish the match in his own-ear by cutting out the crippled cylinder and thereby satisfy the manager of his opponent, even it tho welfare ot the public bad to be sacrificed. An Easy Winner. Tho second heat lose resulted in Haugdahl winning the first flip of tho coin and Breed the- Bocond Which reversed the starting conditions. Breed selected a standing start and Haugtidahl the inside position, The story of the heut would be a monotonous one. Haughdabl took tho lead lu I ho first hundred yards and won as bo pleased. Tho tnird heat proved a repetition of tho second and Haugdahl crossed the tape far enough in advance of Breed to make it a walk away. Breed Was Game, Driver' Breed Bhojvod hjmself a game loser and walked up to Hip little Norwegian and shook his hand extending him congratulations and assuring him' ho had no excuses to offer klcka-to make, /He had been beaten fairly and sfiusrely and •wished ^or belter luck next time. His Statement SlaMer Sloan, made the following statement on race arid Belay; '"The out«ofno of the fconteet -waa probably the mwt unexpected In nil the history nf raclnr. Haugdahl decided to finish the lant two heats and (lo the Heat he could with A. crippled ear In order to satisfy the fnlr management .and jrlvo the public What had been advertised. Another angle of the rnce that made It stand out In a dads by Itself wan tho fact that .H*upda.hl etnrted and finished the I wo final heats and won the rare with prnc- tlciUtj- a three cylinder automobile, while his opponent drove a six cylinder car. Another unUffuni angle of the contest wai the refusal oflho manager of Oleii Breed to a,l|o\v tho substituting ot another car after ItanRilshl had cflpptcd his machine. In four of tho greatest match runee in automobile history, cars were substituted when competing machine* broke down. Breed's manager rln!m ft t! that oS ttreed had only one car lie would lose if lie broke up, therefore llugdnhl should forfeit tho race because of his mlnfor-. ttine, Finally nn wns reached to use another ear when Secretary Sponsler threatened to rail off the race hut dirt what no other driver ban done In previous racing- hlstorv, started alt*) won the race with three ryllnderfi and used a four cylinder oar."

AUSTIN ANDREWS, Auctioneer. Phone 1010 A, C, HOAGUVND, Administrator . One of the most delightful woman speakers that hits ever visited Hutchinson was Mr.". Idah Mctllono dlbson, a newspaper correspondent, who spoke this afternoon at tho Knl'r Grounds In tho' Interest of the Fourth liberty Loarj; Airs. Gibson has recently ru- Inrii'nd from. France where she spent many months working with tlio Red Cross.' Her Btory was one which was particularly Interesting because it dealt with so many projects which the American people have been liu- conilng more nntl more awakened lo tho true conditions of affairs over there. Her message this afternoon was that df describing briefly- the scope and the work of the lied CroBa. "Wht-n we talk of the lied Cross, we must talk of all ot tho war activities, that means when we spenk ot tins lied CrosB wp must speak of the liberty Loan; when we speak- of the Kcd Cross i we muBt talk about Thrift Stamps; whenever we speak of sacrifice In any form that has to do with our government whether it Is liberty bonds or giving to tho Y. M. C. A. we Bpeak ot IbCi lied Crass. Sacrifice is the corner stone of It all." / Acted as Inspector. When Mrs. Gibson went to Frnnce she immediately began her work in the fled Cross as an inspector and went hither and thllher whory ever the Red Cross was loomed. Her purpose was lo hunt up flic need.? and conditions as she found them surrounding the Red Cross and thou to return to' tliia country' and t"ll, Ike peoplo hero in lectures and" iu her writings what her experiences • Were und how best the generosity of.the American people can match up wlin the courage of France', and HelgHim. . Urosscd in her Red Cross uniform of dark grey material with a close fitting hat on which was the Red Cross insignia; Mrs. Gibson made a very sweet and motherly picture this morning at tho Informal reception given for her ill the Blsontc. There were about twenty ladies, present and Father M, U Kalu. All thoroughly' : enjoyod •her' short but ihtphsely.linte'restlng talk in ono.of the reception rooms nl tho Bisonfc. ••>"•••'• "•- Wjth, the Refugees. .»;;'•' •She spoke of the . work of the French and Belgium regufee workers who are caring lor the refugees lhat are pouring into Franco every day by the thousands from" Switzerland that have been sent under terrible conditions from occupied Belgian-mid French territories., An-instance of German Kultur was told by Mrs. Gibson which related to two .small Belgian children, .They had bpen behind, the German lines for many months and were finally gathered up and sent to 'Switzerland along with some 1500 other orphans. When Mrs. Gibson found them they' were huddled together in a corner of a large building where the checking in and out uf children^was being done. Ono little boy had an ugly gash ojt his face extending from near his left eye to his chin. When he told his story, Bhe learned lhat because he had answered a German officer in tlie only language which lie knew, •tho officer drew his sword and slashed him, declaring he would leach him lo talk iu the language of his enemy." And so, 1 have gotten tp that point," Mrs. Gibson stated with much feeling," that when auy one speaks lo mo with a German accent, 1 can't help but feel a rising repulsion. Whe.n I returned to this country and found that they wero still in some schools teaching their hated language to bur children, I just fairly boiled, that's my message." man linns southwest Of Arrss were attacked and these gave way and the forces holding the* Joined their comrades further south in a retreat which now virtually reached the German lines ns they were on March 21. from Arras lo the Chrmin Pes Dames, southwest of Solssons, In Glanders Too. While this retreat was going nn the Germans began a wlthdiawal from the Flanders salient and today they are nearly back to the ilurs from which they Bullied lo their at- tact late in April. Thar far Ihe Allied drive might have been considered In the light nt defensive operations but tho work has not paused wilh the mere r"piil;.« of the enemy. His positions along the Hindenburg line enst of Ai'rus have been wrested from him while further south near St. Qtientln Ihe British hnve, In recent days, roucjit their way Into the enemy's lines where he had planned lo stand on the defensive. The Americana. The American first army has oblltrrnted the St. Mlhiel snllrnt and straightened the line east of Verdun and now stands before Melz into which American shells are falling. Before the Allies there now stands Ihe great llneB constructed by ihe Germans during four years of warfare. These are not simple trenches but vast field fortifications »hkh stretch from the North sea, with few interruptions, to tho Swiss frontier. This general lino of defensive positions had become known as the Hiu- denbufg line but tojdiftcrent sections of it havo been given names from the old German epic of tho N'icbolurigen- lled. ThllB the Woton, Selgfried, I3run- hlld and Kriemhlld lines have been mentioned in reports from Hie rronl. They are carefully constructed., with all the science at the 'command of the German general stnff, nnd present a formidable barrier to further Allied attacks. ' Higher Allied Morale. Six-months of the warfare of motion, however, has taught. Ihe Allies that a trench is no stronwer than the troops that man it In this fact lies the hope of the Entente nations. New methods of attack, the employment of tanks and the higher morale than ever before in the history of the war will be relied upon in the righting to break the enemy'* defensive lines ai;d force new retreats. Germany has lost her chance to. force pence upon the Allies before American armies-enter the fight wilh all their strength. This-WHS her hope in March. Losses of a serious nature were suffered by the Allies during the long battle, but they have been more than doubly offset by the Inflowing American legions. Germany':! losses on the other hand, cannot he made good. Hope blazed, crack divisions broken arid.-seeming• victories turned into defeats have sapped tho morale ,of„ i.ho,.fiojman armies. 1 ', which today are orii the'defenslve oVo.rywhere.
