Impressions of the Race
Consistent running, without lire or
other troubles won for the Harley-Da-vidsons
and their Firestone rubbers. In
much the same manner as that of Old
lield and Carlson in the Tucson race
last .March, Wolters anil Crandall shot
around the curves, eating up the niihti
in a steady, nnfliistered manner. In
spite of all announcements to the con
trary, it is not probable that either of
the winners did any laps in less than
In the beginning, after Marty Graves
had shot into the lead, the two gray
ma hines began acting exactly lifc?
those of I'arkhurst :nd Artley in the
track events Iat fair week. Wolters,
1 who "managed'- Crandall, kept the IX-
year-old local boy at his elbow for
ini.es and miles, setting the pace that
his world of experience told him would
keep the tires in the best condition.
And at the finish, the condition of the
two b:: k casings justified Joe's con
tinual directions to his less experienced
riding partner. C'randall escaped from
Wolters' leash for a while, during Joe's
one visit to the pits for gas and oil and
began dipping the miles faster than the
old head desired. This resulted in a
call fiown, and when C'randall had
again been caught, he came in for a
signaled cussing. Crandall's rear tire
was worn to the fabric, while Wolters
was certainly able to do another hun
dred miles, a fact which proves the
wisdom of Wolters' ride.
Graves A Surprise
The riding of Martin Graves was a
revelation. Having hung back in the
practice and elimination miles. Graves
gave out the impression he was able
to cut 51 seconds with some difficulty.
Put once in the race, he began reeling
off the miles in astonishing time

EL PASO HERE TO
START SERIES TODAY
El Paso's crack ball club
shows up on the local lot this
afternoon and the Mackmen
and the Solons meet for the fir6t
time this season. The game
will be called at 3:30.
Figured on past performances,
the locals stand an excellent
chance of taking the series with
the El Pasoans. Although the
next six games will be just as
hard fought as the last, Hester
believes that his men will hit
the Texas twirlers better than
they did those from New Mexico.

Yesterday morning's third extra in
ning game of the Albuquerque-Phoe
nix series might have been an in
teresting contest, even if the one
sidedness had been due to the un
disputed superiority of the said team
of Dukes. But when five or nine
chances of evening things were
slaughtered mercilessly by a well
intention but very erratic umpire.
the matter ceased to be funny, or
even interesting. Of course nobody

mostly because Jordan positively re

ARMORED RIDERS CROUCH
OVER DUSTY MACHINES! IN
RACE WITH .CLOCK HANDS
By LYLE ABBOTT
Crouching hooded riders with pil
lows in their buzzums a. couple of
lines of five each faced J. C. Adams
yesterday in the evening, and got
away on the first two century grind
ever promoted" on a mile track. Fiv.?
of them won glory, and five wisdom
in chunks of greater or less size.
It was twenty minutes to three
when everybody got through fussing
around, swearing at us poor of
ficials for not having got our stop
watches all together. Referee John
Hohl directed his national guard
cadets to can us all off the grounds
if we didn't be good. So everybody
in the sunny boxes had to tend
strictly to business, and enjoy the
soda pop as best we might.
That part of the race which was
clearly visible to the spectators as
sembled, was the part between huge
clouds of dust. As a matter of fact,
those ten machines just about tor"
j up an acre or two of Salt River
j valley soil and the unkind wind
: shifted it indiscriminately over the
! adjoining fields and us.
' One would see groups of riders
perhaps no two of thein in the
same mile, as far as their laps
j went, grind into a turn and spit
! f ire at each other in exciting little
brushes. There were several races
within the big race, which relieved
the monotony somewhat and brought
; the people cheering to their feet,
i While the motor makers and the
I tire makers and the others were all
j winning great fame for themselves,
: the yellow budged officials were
perspiring and kidding each other
I in the stands, with tense intervals
' as the checkers announced leaders
j finishing ten-mile laps.
I Then, out would come the stop
I watches, and for a few seconds,
! nerveless, efficient hands would
; grasp these delicate instruments and
'the iiiick eyes would survey the
hands that were flying almost as fast
around their two-inch dials as those
adorable mechanisms were circling
the mile track. Folks, we are right
here to inform you that it was
.SOME race between these motor
cycles and the little steel pointers
on the watches.
V'e add the little touch of distinction
that works the differences between be
