A professional bail-bondsman charges 10 per cent of the amount of the bond to get you out of jail. He keeps that 10 pet cent, no matter whether you, win, lose, or draw. It will be my policy to release more perosn* "on their own recognizance" that is simply upon their promise to appear in court. Any responsible citizen with steady employment should be given this consideration. BICK HOYT CANDIDATE FOR SHERIFF WASHINGTON COUNTY Pot. Ad Paid For By Dick Hoyt By Competent Track Officials Indy Tangles Solved INDIANAPOLIS (AP) --i There have been many disputes over the years at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, hut track officials are balling 1.000 in dealing with them. Probably the host organized protest, recalls U.S. Auto Club historian Donald Davidson, was 1047 when the American Sociely of Professional Aulo Racing refused lo participate in the 500-mile race unless qualifying money and prize money was hiked substantially. The protest dragged on until the day before Ihe race, willi only 28 cars qualified for Ihe field, mosl of which were driv- by non-ASPAR. members. 1 The Speedway did institute qualification money, Davidson noted, hut the basic demands of he dissidenl participant were denied. Because some ASPAR members had spent a great deal of lime arguing the inalter, their cars were nol ready, said Davidson. Those which could not reach the 115-mile per hour minimum qualifying speed did not make Ihe field, and only 30 slarled in the usual 33-car lineup. Rained-out time trials in 1956 after only 35 cars had made runs posed a similar problem with qualifying. Some top cars were left in .ine when the period ended, so :he Speedway was reopened for another three hours, but thai qualifying period was washed out too, and Speedway officials decided qualifications were over officially. After threats to withdraw sonic cars already in the field failed to budge the Speedway's position, the matter fizzled. Tn 1937, second alternate Joel Thome tried lo "buy" his way into the starting lineup, by purchasing cars ahead of him and withdrawing them.
