J.lrW. r °'d J°« Lunn of Tbomas- [ ville, Gl. i The 87-pound fourth grader won the 15th annual classic yesterday, defeating 153 other aspirants from the IJnitod States, Canada, Alaska and Germany. '. Tb« bashful kid who wants to be a doctor when he "grows up," received a $5,000 four-year college scholarship as Jirst prize. The little fellow won it the hard way : too for his sleek little homemade racer was almost wrecked when he lost control and hit a guard rail after finishing on top in his first j heat. A heavy cross wind made driv- , ing precarious down the 975-foot | concrete Derby Downs, several of the youngsters having troubl during the heats which were run off every 105 seconds for two hours and- 35 minutes. The officials had to give Joe a bit of extra time to patch up his soap box after the crash. Hn usec a flock of adhesive tape to fix the nose and to hold trie front axle in place and then came back to win four more heats. The finale was a classic as the Southern kid flashed, across the finish line in 27.77 seconds, fastest time of the day. He nosed out James Thomas of Danville, Pa., (lie second placer, and Victor C. Shepherd of Flint, Mich., who wound up third. Back of the three leaders, in this order, were Englebert J. Oechsle of Rochester, N. Y., Raymond M. Gotko of Washington, b. C.. Dick Miner of San Diego, Calif., .lames Moonoy of Charlotte, N. C , Ed D. Malloy of Durham, N. C., Sam Steiner of Lima, Ohio, and David Grubbs of Pittsburgh. Would Curb Minnow I Taking In County Petitions were being circulated here today In be taken to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Friday, asking that Washington County be closed to commercial minnow dealers. Game Warden Paul Baxter said today that j licenses have been granted to , dealers from many counties, and , that they arc depleting the streams 1 in this county of minnows. The pe- lions will ask the commission to close this county to commercial minnow-takers. So many minnows have been taken by the commercial operators that "fishermen are not able to trap enough for their own personal use," the petition reads. "We feel that this is not fair to the sportsman and 17 also detrimenta to our fish life.* To Speak Here, Births Mr. in* Mrs. Jsmts Irwln Mr. and Mrs. James Irwin nf Clyde, announce the birth of a son August 9, at the City Hospital.
