To clarify the many questions that hare reached Derby head quarters regarding sponsorship of cars, the Derby Director yester day pointed out that boys who want to enter the race in spon sored cars may do so, providing the boy builds the car he drives. Sponsors usually pay for the wheel sets and the boy Joes the rest. For the wheel set the boy permits the sponsor to letter the name of his store or business or product on his car for the Local Race Only. No sponsored car will be accepted which carries adver tising of night clubs, liquor or a competitive make of automobile. B a sponsored car should win the Wilmington race, it will be sent to Akron, but will bear only the name of the Wilmington Star News. Boys are urged to sign up now and start building their racers. Bnti'y blanks may be secured at te Raney Chevrolet company or at 128 Princess street, but pro spective entrants must be accom panied by one or both parents, or nUardian, at time entry is made. 1 tf°V!sion 's 'n keeping with a,.‘.u. u and fast rule handed down f -'aa°nal Soap Box Derby head ,;uar «s at Detroit.
