Lickings being received by Newark
and Pittsburgh in the last few days
presented the Whales with excellent
opportunities, but they have failed,
through porous fielding, to take ad
vantage. Owner Gaffney of the Braves has
stopped John Evers' pay for five days,
the duration of his suspension for a
run-in with. the umpires. Gaffney
figures that, with the lines drawing
tight, every ounce of his team's
strength is needed, and a player who
takes away any power should be pun
ished. Some time the athletes will
get it into their heads that they can't
win games on the bench.

The Speedway Park ass'n of Chi
cago is determined that all existing
records for 300 miles will be broken
at its annual fall championship race
to be held in October. To encourage
the 25 or 30 riders who will be here
for the race to do their utmost to set
anew mark for that distance, Presi
dent David P. Reid announced yes
terday the association will give a
prize of $1,000 to the driver breaking
the existing mark, in addition to the
$25,000 purse already offered.
Officers of the local association are
not afraid their present record for the
distance will be smashed at New York
on Oct 2, but are willing to take no
chances. They believe the additional
$1,000 will encourage speed neces
sary to make a new mark, even if the
mark broken is the one of 98 miles
an hour made by Dario Resta on the
local track last June. The total purse
for the fall race now aggregates $26,
000, which is the largest ever offered
for a contest over the same distance.
Officials of the Speedway seriously
are contemplating changing the date
of the race from Saturday, Oct 16, to
Sunday, Oct 17.
