D'ALENE DROPS OUT OF RACE
RECORD TIME LOOKED FOR WHEN BIG AFFAIR IS RUN Wilbur D'Alene, who copped sec ond place in the big Indianapolis race, will not take part in Saturday's Speedway run. According-to. a story in the Waukegan Sun, this """dark horse" did not get any coin for his sensational run in the Indiana city race and he is disgusted with the racing game in general. As the Sun story goes, D'Alene signed a contract which stated that he would get but one trophy, no mat ter what his stanl at the finish of the Indianapolis race. After the records showed him in second place, the Bosch Magneto Co. presented him with a special prize, a medal and cap, and he accepted. Later he was torn Dy tne uuesenoerg people wnose car he piloted, that he was not en titled to any other prize. Therefore the $6,000 bit for second prize money did not go to D'Alene. This "famous-in-a-day" driver claims he was literally robbed of the coin and he cannot see the racing game for a future following. He has accepted a position in the Pierce Mo tor Co. at Waukegah. The reporter who landed the story for the Waukegan Sun says the man is the deal D'Alene, as newspaper clippings, medals, etc., backed ur his claim.
