Durant's time showed an averago of 1 81.6 miles per hour. Prior to the race Ralph Do Palma, whoso car was barred because It could not carry a mochanlc IjjUan, did a trial lap (7.369 miles) in 4 Jj minutes 45 1-5 seconds, or at tho rate II of 92.7 miles per hour.

Special Despatch to Tin Scs. Santa Monica. Cal., March 15.- -The fastest time ever made on a road course In tho world was registered by ltalph De Palma driving his Packard Special .equipped with an aviation engine In a JTspeed trial Inaugurating the Santa Monica classic this afternoon. The champlon driver negotiated the run of 27.396 miles in 4 minutes 45 1-5 sec ond9, a tpeed of 93.38 miles an hour. An unusually rough course threw the great car about appreciably, and De Palma fairly hurtled through the air on the turns and bounded along tho ' straightaway In leaps. It was a totally different type of going from the smooth running on Dayton Beach last month when he established a new world's rec ord or all distances from the kilometer to the twenty miles In straightaway dailies. To-day's perfomance was officially ...sanctioned by the A. A. A. Contest - Board, Illchard Kennerdell chairman and was timed by the A. Ai A. official -timers for tho Santa Monica road race. Frank J. Lowry flagged the trial. The car De Palma drove Is the same one with which he hung up tho new world's records of 150 miles an hour at Daytona. It Is a special stream lined chassis with a twelve cylinder four type motor built and In commission be fore America declared war on Germany, The best previous road race tlmo be- fore De Palma's run was 93 miles an Jiour made here by Bruce Brown In 1911. To-day's run was over a newly laid out , .course. WAITING YALE'S ANSWER. Vet Virtrlnltt Holds Three root bull Ililten Open to E1U, Mon,aANTowN, W.

Osborn by 125 to 93, and William A. Tilt vanquished C. Shongood by 125 to 119, marked the close of the first week of the tournament nt the New York A. C, under tho auspices of the National Association of Amateur Billiard Playes. While Shoemaker and Munoz won their contests easily yet. It gave them tho opportunity to do considerable daring work with tho Ivories, tho result being brilliant execution. Shongood and Tilt had a nip and tuck etruggle, tho Calumet Club representa tive nosing out his opponent by six points. Shoemaker won his second game of the tournament In the afternoon, when ho defeated A. C. Crowo by 125 to 54. ,Tho champion celebrated his victory by a, r.umber of skyrocket Bhots that brought down tho house.

Fol lowing several weeks of negotiations Yalo has finally been forced to leave Washington and Jefferson off Its foot ball schedule for 1919. Washington and Jefferson requested a game and the Kll management was disposed to grant the request and thus renew gridiron competition, which was dropped after 1916. Yale presented several dates, all of which were filled on the Red and Black card. Manager J. H. Murdoch of W. and J. endeavored to rearrange his card to enable him to take the trip to New Haven, but contracts could not be broken or other games shifted without the consent of opponents pre viously booked, so negotiations were called off. There still Is a probability that the Red and Black will appear on either the Rutgers or Navy schedule or both. i ne r.avy onerea . ana J. a game earlier in the year, but it was not nccepted at the time. Later negotia Hons wero reopened, and tho midship men now are trying to give the Presl dents a game. Rutgers has notified Manager Murdoch that It would gladly schedule the Red and Black for a tilt either In New Brunswick or New York If a. date could be arranged. Thus far neither team has been able to rearrange Its garner to fit the other, nnd it is possible that tho game may be lost. There Is a possibility that Washington- Jefferson may play at West Point If it can fill the date the army has open, but the chances are not bright.

Dr. Walter IC Wllklns, tho husband of Mrs. Julia Wllklns, who waa mur dered at their home at Long Beach, It. I., on tho night of February 27, went with his counsel to Mlneola yesterday and submitted to three hours of inter rogation by District Attorney Weeks of Nassau county. "We are still plugging away at the Wllklns caso and I think wo have made some progress," was Mr. Weoks's re sume of the Interview when he was asked at Its conclusion If Dr. Wllklns had thrown any new light on tho murder. In his talk with Dr. Wllklns Mr. Weeks was not without the assistance of considerable criminological talent as William J. Durns, County Detoctlve Car man Plant of Mr. Wceks's staff, Justice of the Peace Edward Neu of Lynbrook, two Burns operatives and Sheriff Phl neas Seaman were all present and put questions of their own 'from time to time. The authorities concede they have turned up nothing which offers serious contradiction of Dr. Wilklns's story that Mrs. Wllklns was killed by burglars who surprised him and her when they entered their house In the dark. The most Important discovery so far by the detectives has been a screwdriver with a smear of green paint upon Its handle matching the green paint on a hammer found near Mrs. Wllklns after She was killed. Burns refuses to explain what connec tion he sees between the hammor and the screwdriver. Dr. Wllklns admits that both articles are his and says he supposes the burglars picked the ham mer up In the kitchen when he and his wife surprised them In the house. Dr. Wllklns, who said three days ago that he understood ho was suspected, asked Burns yesterday If, hypothetlcally. It was likely that a physician after strik ing a woman down, would summon help while she was still alive and run the hazard of her regaining consciousness In the presence of witnesses and accus ing him. Burns did not commit himself to an answer. Mrs.' Wllklns died three hours after her husband had summoned help, follow ing tho attack upon her. By the only will she Is known to have left Wllklns will recelvo less than 11,000 of her es tate. HUNT HOARDED FOOD IN STORAGE PLANTS Investigators to Mnko State wide Inventory of All Goods Held.

The law provides with regard to the time cold storage food may be kept as iuiiohs ; "It shall be thereafter unlawful for any person, corporation or corporations engaged In the business of cold storage warehousemen or refrigerating or for any person placing food In a cold stor age warehouse to keep In storage for preservation or otherwise any kind of food or any article used for food longer period than twelve calendar months." Another section of the law requires all persons or corporations engaged in the business of cold Btorage warehousemen to submit a report to the Commissioner 1 of Foods and Markets stating the quan- ui ctuu iiu t-vi-ij- luuuniuiL ill fiiir- age or in their control.
