Stutz Wins First Honors in the Automobile Meet at Tanforan
Earl Cooper Easily Takes the Measure of Barney Oldfield
PROVES A ONE
Three A Representative Threat
ens to Bar Veteran Pilot;
R. C. H. Wins
By LEON J. PINKSON
While Barney Oldfleld may have
been the magnet that drew over 5,000
motor car enthusiasts and lovers of
speed events to Tanforan yesterday,
the veteran racing pilot was eclipsed
«8 the star performer of the meet by
Earl Cooper, the popular San Fran
cisco driver, who in his Stutz car.took
first place in the only three event* in
which Barney competed. Aside from
the three events referred too, Old
fl* 1 ' succeeded In lowering the Tan
rfran record of 54 seconds for a mile,
by making the circuit in 50 3-5 sec
onds, but failed to cut the world's two
mile circular track record of 1:86 3-5.
Tt took him 1:43 2-5 to cover the dis
tance. Both these events were exe
cuted In Oldneld's 300. horsepower
Christie, a front drive machine.
Cooper's work jn his consistent Stutz
car gave the meet the only real tone of
an automobile race carnival, and co
disappointed was Percy J. Walker, the
official representative of the American
Automobile association, who granted
the sanction for the contest, that at the
end of the program he stated that he
would never again issue a permit to
< 'Idfleld or his managers for a meet in
California unless it was plainly adver
tised that the program was to consist
merely of exhibition events and no
mention of racing be made in the ad
vertising or publicity. In fact, Walker
is inclined to force Oldfleld and Burman
to combine and give their exhibition
together if they want to continue to
appear in California.
oi.DFIKI.n CUTS TRAIK RECORD
The day's program opened with Old
rield in his freak Christie car attempt
ing to lower the Tanforan track record.
Through an error in the start the cor
rect time was not secured, although
unofficially he was timed as making the
circuit in 53 seconds. The error caused
him to repeat the performance, and in
the second attempt he made the mile
in 50 3-5 seconds. The latter showing
stirred the crowd, for as the big Christie
car swung around the turn It shot out
of a cloud of dust that resembled the
start of a tornado. Barney was
cheered and much was expected from
the rest of the program.
The second event brought Barney
and hie Prince Henry Benz, which car
«*tabllshed several world's records,
$-i.l Earl Cooper in hie Stutz car to
f?«-ther. Cooper drew the rail and at
the drop of the starter's flag both
shot out. together. Oldfleld reached the
turn first, but Cooper held close on
notwithstanding the cloud of dust that
Barney raised. Down the back etretch
they raced with the Benz leading and
the flTst mile was finished by Oldfleld
in 1:03. while Cooper was two seconds
behind. In the second mile Cooper
passed Barney, who complained of
carburetor trouble and was forced to
retire. This 1 *vft Cooper alone in the
race and he finished the flye miles in
4:481-5, the motor In his Stutz never
missing during the entire grind. With
the same consistency in the five mfle
free for all, which followed, Cooper
pent hie Stut« across the finishing tape
in 5:20 1-5.
STLTZ WINS T« MILE EVEXT
Tn the 25 mile free for all Cooper and
Oldfleld again were the contenders and
while the race was a repetition of the
two five mile events as far as the re
sult, the Benz pressed the Stutz harder
than in the other contests. Cooper,
however, heid'-feis car well in hand and
maintained a safe lead over the cham
pion for the 25 circuits of the track.
Tf Barney let out the powerful Benz,
Cooper used the same tactics with the
sturdy little Stutz and the car re
sponded ever time. It took 25 minutes
and 42 seconds to run the race, fast
time considering the soft condition of
the track, especially at the turns.
In addition to wresting the racing
laurels from Oldfleld, Cooper, with the
.«ame Stuta, set a new Tanforan track
record for two miles at 1;5*3-6, cutting
two-fifths of a second from the old
mark. Cooper did this trick after
Fred Malone. iln a Renault, took
2:05 3-6 to negotiate the distance.
R. C. H. WINS LAURELS
One of the features of the program
was a match race between A. J. Ed
wards in an R. C. H. car and Gaston
Maurice in the old Maxwell car that
was familiar in racing circles here
some time ago. After a false start in
which the Maxwell took the lead, the
4 *rs were recalled and the race started
nsrain. The second time the R. C. H.
car got ahead and maintained that
position for the five miles, showing re
markable consistency in each circuit
of the track.
The performance of the R. C. H. is
worthy of special mention as the lit
tle car took part in the Stockton races
on Thursday, was driven back to San
Francisco on the same day, and on
Saturday was driven to Sacramento,
where it was raced at the Oldfleld
meet there. It was driven back from
the capital city yesterday morning and
without any tinkering, was entered in
the rare at Tanforan in the afternoon.
Oldfield's attempt to lower the
World's track record for two miles
failed, doubtless because of the slow
condition of the track. His car was
running well and he took turns in
Bob Burman and his manager, E. A.
Morose, were spectators, but neither
made any attempt to further their de
sire to urge Oldfleld into a match race.
There was no tire trouble of any
kind. Cooper's Stutz and Oldflelds cars
were equipped with Firestone nonskids.
Frank Carroll, San Francisco man
ager of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber
company, acted as official starter.

The Alameda rangers proved a cur*

Encinal city gave a wonderfully plucky

a few goals.
Lewie had all kinds of trouble in the
first half when the Rangers adopted a
rushing game, bore down on the goal

After March 4
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17.—The form

special session of congress next spring
has become a matter of strong indi

ators and congressmen now in Wash
Representative Underwood, demo
cratic house leader, who will arrive in
Washington this week, has given no
indication as to his own plans, and it
is expected that democratic leaders
will confer at length over the situa
tion before advising President elect
Wilson of tentative arrangements.
Many members now favor a general
bill covering many or all of the sched
ules of the tariff law, to be framed as
a partial or complete substitute for
the Payne-Aldrieh law. Those who ad
vance this plan say it would be the
speediest way of fulfilling tariff
pledges. Others favor combining in
a single bill those measures passed
during the last two years, but vetoed
by President Taft.
Unless the plan to revise the entire
tariff law in a single bill is adopted It
is believed democratic leaders will
urge the calling of the special session
before April 15. That date was set by
President elect Wilson as the latest
upon which he would assemble the new

opinion that the entire tariff revision
should be concluded before next July,

new schedule with the beginning of
the fiscal year July 1.
