He was shoe-horned into a red . and yellow race car only 29^ inches high, a Cummins diesel special that was the first oil-burner to win the pole position in the Memorial Day classic. Back in ISth position was the first foreign driver in the race since 1946, European Champion Alberto Ascari of Milan, Italy in I V I 2 Ferrari. Alongside Agabashian In the front row. in positions they won with fast qualifying rune, were Andy Linden of Los Angeles in a supercharged four-cylinder Miracle power special and Jack McGrath of Pasadena, Cali'f... in a Hinkle special. . The consensus at the pre-race drivers' meeting yesterday was tr-at McGrath. Agabashian arid Ascari will be the men to b?at There also was considerable en- t'-usissm for the rebuilt Novi V8s piloted by Chet Miller of Glendale, Calif., oldest driver In the race at 49. and Duke Nalon of Fort Worth.

Milton promised that any driver who doesn't give the' right of way to a faster car will be penalized With a field full of hot cars, any of which might win, there was a possibility of another tingllni finish like that of the 1937 race in which Wilbur Shaw, now the speedway president, detested the late Ralph Hepburn by 2.16 second*. Kiner And Dickson Put Skids On Reds Pittsburgh-OT - Ralph Kiner's fifth homer and Murry Dickson's pitching reversed Pittsburgh's backward motion to wl)ip Cincinnati, 4-2, yesterday.
