Milwaukee, Wis. Oct 1 Staking his
chances and his life for the last fifty
miles on a torn rear tire. Ralph De
Palma, In a Mercedes car, won the Van-
derbllt Cup race of 300 miles over the
"VYauwatosa course to-day by a desperate
driving flnUh that caused the EO.000 spec
tators repeatedly to gasp In terror.

smoothly and going like a streak, the
young Englishman hung on. De JPalma

simply whirled In tatters of rubber
De Palma also knew, being informed
by big signs from his pit. that Hughes
Mas close and coming fast. He therefore
krew that If he stopped tpreplace the
torn tire he probably would lose the race,
to he gambled on the tire, flirted with
death, and the tire held fast to the finish.
Only 42.T5 seconds separated them at
the tlnlsh, and when the smiling young
Italian dashed across the line a winner,
the crowd that had been standing en
masse, cheered him to the echo Scarce

Mnlford -Out of Race.
In three laps, 'about twenty-four miles.
he had overhauled and passed six con
testants who had started ahead of him
and was thundering around the course
at nearly seventy-five miles an hour.
Hughes, Wlshart, Nelson. Clark, and
Anderson In turn raced past the stand
and then came a cry of fury from the
grand stand, "Where's Mulford? What's
the matter with Ralph! Where's 77"
A positive babble of voices roared Ques
tion after question at the Judges' stand
and a sigh of relief, withal of sympathy.
arose when it was announced: "Mul
ford is all right His magneto went- up.
Ilea out of the race, but all right.
Just when the dashing young American.
In an ail-American car, was promising
a remarkable race, he came to grief, "xms
left three American cars and four of
foreign make In the race. The Stutz.
Lozier, and Mercer remained to fight it
out with a Fiat and three Mercedes
Nelson was the next man to get Into
trouble. Just at the finish of his fourth
laps he halted because of engine trouble
and never recovered.
Then one after another of the racers
were forced to ston until Anderson. Tetz
laff. and Hughes only were maintaining
their course. Tetzlaff was tnunaenng
along at terrific speed. Hughes' Mercer
made less noise than any of the other
cars, and always announced its approach
by a softly purring sound In tne distance.
Anderson In his Stutz was not going as
fast as the others, but was on the track
all the while.
Tetslnft Panes De Pnlmn.
Still De Palma held his lead, but Tetz
laff was slowly but surely creeping up
As they finished the eighth lap they were
almost neck and neck, drhing desperate
ly. Unless something broke it was ap
parent that these two would fight to a
finish The next lap settled It As De
Palma approached the stand his mech
anician threw up both hands to signal be
hind and whirled alongside of his pit
One of his tires had been torn to ribbons
and Tetzlaff flashed past In the lead.
After that Tetzlaff simply flew, with De
Palma fighting hard to regain the lost
lead. By the time Tetzlaff completed his
eighteenth lap he had nearly overhauled
De Palma on the latter' a seventeenth.
Not until the nineteenth lap did Tetz
laff stop Then, working furiously he and
his mechanicians replaced a tire, took
en gasoline, oil, and water, and whirled
Lap after lap he reeled off until the
spectators believed he had the race won.
For the twenty-fourth time he roared
past the stand and then be disappeared.
De Palma came in sight and once more
nervous dread seized the crowd.
IctxlnlT Has Engine 1 rouble.
"Terrible Teddy ' has been reputed a
dare-devil driver and many feared that
he had been wrecked. Again questions
were hurled at the Judges, and finally
through a megaphone this was declared.
"Tetzlaff is oat of the race His engine
has gone up." According to other au
toists, the furious speed he was making
melted a connection, and fifteen minutes
later, crestfallen, but smiling roughly,
"Teddy was given a round of cheers
as he walked to the stand
Then Hughes began to shine De Palma
was in tha lead, but Hughes had had
less trouble. Purring loudly along the
track he was driving a terriflo but con
sistent race and slowly overhauling De
Palma. Slowly he crept up
At the thlrti -first lap he was a few
seconds behind and coming strong De
Palma stopped for twenty seconds on
this Ian and changed his front leit tire.
The rear tire was torn, but De Palma
would not take time to change It
On the next lap Hughes was forty-four
seconds behind, and they held these rela
tive positions for two laps. De Palma's
men in bis pit held up huge signs with
his time and Hughes' painted on them.
Then, beyond a shadow of doubt the
daring Italian began to take terrible
chances at the corners Hughes hung on
like grim death. De Palma's rear tire
was fluttering in ribbons, out try as ne
would Hughes was unable to cut down
De Palma's lead more than one and one-
quarter seconds to the finish
Trrom start to tlnlsn the race was
splendid No records were broken, but it
was one of the cleanest and most excit

Mrs Matthew T. Scott, president gen

national board, which met In Memorial
Continental Hall, that the "administra

that she would keep her hands off, and
that the fight for the high honor of chief
executive of the Daughters will be an
open and free-for-all battle.
May the best woman win on her

of a new era in D A. R. circles For

will come to pass. The Daughters will
no longer be "Tammanyized." The re

name her successor, ana what Is more
she will stand neutral in the contest.
Rearnrded as Important.
The announcement of the stand of Mrs
Scott is regarded as the most important
development in D A. R. circles in years.

have done the men who the political
"boss" oppoe'ed In days gone by.
The next congress of the Daughters
will meet in Washington next May. It
will elect a successor to Mrs. Scott, who
will retire. Her announcement means
that, unlike Mrs. McLean, she will have
no candidate to advance as her suc
