than the James Gordon Bennett cup cottne
Borne oil had been sprinkled over ItJ enough to make a skImpy trail
about as broad as toe spread of an autos front wheel Eight miles of the

h61e that made the racers Jump aa It they had run over a nest ot Jap I
mines Here and there a bink had been cut away or a dangerous post
removed but the unbacked turns wero fierce The course was alow
Not safe for a seventymile Weed said tho experts At Krugs
Corner a lot of sand had been dumped to bank the turn It extended for
200 feet and was about twenty feet wide But It was soft nnd loose It
was worse than nothing No attempt at all had been made to build up
the angles In remoter parts of the course Even ono place near Manhassel
HH1 the worst of all was overlooked and right around the turn lay a
grandstand The Long Island farmers did more to protect their chickens
than the prom9tcrs did to Inaurff sUfety to human life Word was sent
around that all chickens must be stabled and kept off the road YcsUr
cjaj afternoon a fine Hock of turkeys gave up their lives under the wheels
of two or three touring IfiarwrnrlirTrhurry dAnda Mlneolii turkey

broken collarbone and wsi Generally smashed op AVnrrcn arras were
both broken above the wrists Yet these two dauntless athjctcs could not
