The South Shore A. C. wishes to
arrange games with teams averaging
about 16 years. No objection to trav
eling. D. M. Healy, Manager, 2204
E. 73d St.
Dario Resta, driving a Peugeot,
won the, 300-mile auto race at Indi
anapolis in the comparatively slow
time of 3:34:17.51, an average of 84.5
miles an hour. The hourly average
last year was over 90 miles. Wilbur
D'Alene in a Deusenberg was second
and Ralph Mulford finished third in
his Peugeot Barney Oldfield's De
lage was fifth. Tom Rooney, driv
ing a Premier, and Jack Le Cain, a
Delage driver, were injured and are
in the hospital. Both will recover.
Glenn Stokes, Los Angeles, won
the ten-mile F. A. M. motorcycle
championship race at Hawthorne.
Ray Creveston and Lorenzo Boido,
leading atthe time, were spilled on
the east turn, but not seriously hurt
Creveston won one of the five-mile
races. Bob Perry of Joliet won ten
and five-miles races, and Joe Walters
copped a three-mile dash.
Charley Cutler won in straight
falls from Fred Beell at Riverview in
16 minutes for the first and a minute
and a half for the second. A head
lock was used for the first flop and
a cross body and armlock for the
second.
Upholstered cushions will grace
every players' bench in the American
league in the future, now that. Wild
Bill Donovan, doubling as the mod
ern Chris Columbus, has gone and
discovered something.
Wild Bill horns into the public
prints with the announcement that
tonsilitis, the disease that has floored
so many ballplayers during the
spring; extends all the way from the
neck to the bench on which the de
mon athletes sit. Moreover he has
proved his contention to his men.
Simultaneously with the diagnosis
of the cause of this ailment the skip
per of the New York Yankees found
the preventative and he didn't have
to call in a clinic either in arriving
at his decision. He promptly ordered
the aforementioned upholstered
cushions installed oh the bench with
soft cloth very Oriental in effect
covering the concrete wall at the
players' backs.
Already the Yankees' dugout is
adorned with this luxurious equip
ment and just one glimpse at the ar
rangement is enough to start the vis
iting pastimers coughing, wheezmg
and conversing in horse, raspy
voices. No .300 hitter could be sat
isfied without his cushion. Moreover
it makes sleeping a rare treat for the
bench warmers.
Highbrow medical fellers who have
gazed upon the layout admit they are
bested. Tha tonsilitis can be treated
by starting at the ground and work
ing up is still a little too revolution
ary however for them to adopt it as
a permanent fixture.
