appear around a turn.
On and on they will go, one after an
other, until the course of 12.64 miles
has been rounded 22 times and mak
ing a total of 27S.0S miles.
Not since 1906 has there been such
widespread interest m the "Vanderbilt
cup race as is manifested this year, and
the entries will exceed either those of
1908 or 1909.
There are many reasons for the in

Race National One.
In the first place, the Tace will he
almost entirely of a national charac
ter, there being but three foreign en
tries, representing only one make of
car, and for the first time, since the in
ception of this automobile classic, the
Pacific coast and Rocky mountain sec
tions wil be represented as well as
the middle west and the east.
Owing to the changes in the deed of
gift by the donor, TV. H. "Vanderbilt.
jr., the "Vanderbilt cup race in 1909
failed to arous much interest Previ
ous contests had been opened to cars
of any speed and power, and, as a re
sult manufacturers had constructed
special cars of enormous power and
speed for the purpose of capturing the
cup. The 1909 contest, however, was
limited only to stock cars, which caus
ed the foreign competitors to withhold
fared for subclass No. 4 cars, were run
at the same time, which robbed the
main event of many of its sensational
The hour of racing was also chang
ed from 5 a. m. to 9 a. m., and the
course was cut down from 30 miles to
a fraction over 12.
Many of these unpopular features
have been changed for this year's con
test. Of course, the rules, governing
the trophy, remain the same, and the
entries are limited to stock kchassis of
subclasses 1 and 2 under the classifi
cation of the A. A. A. racing rules.
The contest for the Wheatley Hills
and Massapequa trophies, however, will
be run separately and will not inter
fere -with the big race. The entries
for the Vanderbilt cup alone are almost
double those of last year and represent
every section of the country, r
On the Old Course.
The course is the same as last year's,
its total length being 12.64 miles. The
contestants will have to round it 22
times to cover the distance for the
Another favorable factor in this
year's contest is the starting hour. The
officials have set it back to 5 a. m.,
which will add to the spectacular fea
tures of the occasion.
Among the favorites in the coming
contest are: -George Robertson, who
captured the race in 1908, and inciden
tally holds the record for the fastest
time ever made in the Vanderbilt con
test; Bert Dingley, who has made ex
cellent showing in the Vanderbilt
races; Ralph Mulford, who captured
the Elgin trophy; Xiouls F. Chevrolet,
Robert Burnham and Jack Fleming.
Other Vanderbilt Races.
The first Vanderbilt cup race was run
October 8, 1904, over a course 30.21
miles in length including controls. The
distance was 302.4 miles. It was won
by Heath in a Panhard car, with a to
tal elapsed time of 6 hours, 56 minutes,

Up to Thanksgiving the high school
boys will devote their attention to
football, and the girls to tennis. Two
fine tennis courts on the grounds -will

"With all respect to the opinion of
others, it seems to me that tho path

the right of organization on the party
of both labor and capital, by which
and through which, these facts in our

the collective bargain, is the bond be
tween labor and capital.
"When the right of organization
among both workmen and their em
ployers is fully recognized and when
these forces adopt the policy of col
lective bargaining, the day of the strike
and lockout of the boycott and black
list largely will have passed away."
