Barney Oldfield clipped two-fifths of a

speed on the turns, the car being carried
around by im own momentum, but on the

rate of ntnety-flvc miles an hour, and
the gunboat shaped .-ar appeared hki- i
huge hird Hying low over the ground.
Oldfleld tried his best to get close to
the record of TiO 4-5 seconds but could
not make it.
Benny tferscher drove faster Sunday
than he did the day before, his time for
a mile exhibition being 56 -'-" seconds.
The eighth event, five-mile handicap,

The visiting alhlefes battled nobly
apalnst odds throughout the full session
of nine stirring periods, but only suc
ceeded In running a very poor second to
the nimble warriors of the garrison. The
oft-repeated phrase. "Class will tell."
was amply demonstrated on this occa
sion, as the army boys showed their su
periority In every department of the
game, in curbstone vernacular, they
played rints's around the Zlon boys, and
only for the fact that Haynes nsed up
so perceptibly In the eighth inning, the
Salt Lakers would hove retraced their
steps with B coat of whitewash as lug
sage. In fact the entlte, army team
exhibited unmistakable signs f that
tired feeling In the eighth spasm due to
the commanding lend they held over the
visitors and the knowledge that Hayne8 s
ancient whip was geared to high speed.
The local bovs did not wield their nal.
sticks for long driven todny. contenting
themselves with swatting Ihe pellet safe

DunleaVV, a recent importation, was
on the firing line b'u tin- independents.
He vised the spltter against 'lie slugging
warriors, and while they did not send his
choice offerings to the tali uncut, they
connected with n freouency insuring runs
