Ohio State now stands at the top of the western con ference football elevens, but must de feat Illinois next Saturday in order to have an undisputed claim to the championship, for a defeat at the hands of the Illini would leave the race in a scrambled condition with possibly three teams claiming first honors. The standlnrs are: Ohio ftote, won 4, lost 0; Illinois, four and one; Wisconsin, three and one; Indiana, two and one: Iowa, three and two; Chicago, two and three; Northwestern, two and three; Michigan, one and two: Purdue, none and three; Minnesota, none and five. Victory for Ohio State next Satur day would leave the Isuokeyes the only undefeated team. A defoat. however. and victory for Wisconsin over Chi casro. would give Illinois, Wosconsin andOhio State a record of one dtfeat each and an equal claim to the cham pionship on the comparative score, or "dope" basis. Illinois, however, would possess one more victory than either of her competitors and probaUy would be conceded the ' .championship.- .The! surprising defeat of Illinois Saturday when Wisconsin, in a 10-minute spurt of super-football. forwbl passed Its way to two touchdowns and 14 to 9 victory- has made Ohio state the fa vorite in Saturday:s battle. ; Wisconsin's success against Illinois with the forward pass was conniilered particularly significant in studying Ohio State's chances for the .Buckeye team is considered the gres test for ward parsing aggregation developed in the middle wr-st since "Eddie Co chems first Introduced the serial style of play at St. Louis university.

In the other two events he was obliged to surrender to Kddie Hearne. Vail finished first in the 50 mile free-for-all, the feature event of the afternoon. Hearne took first in the 25-mlle match race, passing Vail on the last lap. He also won the Austral Ian pursuit race at 15 miles. Jimmy Thomas, a Phoenix driver, mounted in a Phoenix car, a Chandler Special owned by Cal Messner, out classed the . field In the 25 rails Trl State championship for the Barney Oldfleld trophy, was always a con tender in the 50 mile free-for-all, fin ishing third, and finished only nine. seconds behind the winner in the 25 mile free-for-all, the "fastest race of the day. Pitted against two of the fastest dirt track cars in America, Tail's Phflbrim Dusenberg. and Hearne's Ktutx, the Chandler Special showed Its true metal by always running within hailing dis tance of the winners. Jimmy Thomas also showed rare driving form by the manner in which he piloted the biff car around the mile circuit, racing agaln6t such famous speed kings as Hearne and Tail. Track In Good Shape The track was In much better shape than on the preceding day but was still far from a condition that is con ducive of world's records. Notwith standing the layer of dust, which at times blinded the drivers and made the going most - difficult, several miles were clipped off at SO seconds or bet ter, the best time of the day being in 49 seconds flat by Ira Vail. Vail got away to a flying start in the 50-mile free-for-all, the first event, and was never headed although Hearne pressed him hard during the last 10 minutes, forcing him to cover the dis tance in 8 minutes, 28 2-5 seconds, a little better than an average of 61 seconds per mile. At one time during this race. Vail had a lead over Hearne of nearly 6-8 of a mile, Hearne staying far to the rear to avoid the dust. Jimmy Thomas in the Chandier Special was out after Hearne. and for several laps they raced neck and neck, Jimmy finally dropping back a few rods after eating several pecks of Hearne's dust..' Oldfield the Paca-makar Bamev Oldfield. the daddy of all racers, paced the field of eight starters for the first mile, sending them away to a flying start. The first mile was done jn 50 seconds flat, according to the timers. At the five mile post, they stood Vail, Hearne fcnd Thomas, with Crosby In a Hudson Special fourth, followed by the Chevrolet and Ford. Tommy Milton was forced from the running in the third mile when he. burned out a bearing. Prom the fifth mile on, it was a three-cornered race between Vail, Hearne and Thomas, with Vail gTada- ually increasing his lead over Hearne and Thomas slowly pulling up on the Stutz pilot. They were caught at the 10 mile pole in 8 minutes. 38 seconds; at 15 miles, the time was announced as 12 minutes, 69 3-5 seconds; 17 minutes, "2 2-5 seconds was announced as the time for the 20 minutes and at the half way post, they were caught at 21 min utes 47 4-5 seconds. They went to the 30 mile post in 26 minutes, 11 2-5 sec onds, when Hearne started out after the leader, Thomas dropping a little to the rear to avoid the cloud of dust. The time for the 35 miles was 30 minutes. 36 seconds. Hearne gradually crawled up on Vail for the next 10 miles, but at the 45 mile post was nearly a quar ter of a mile to the bad. He quick ened his pace; so did Vail and there ensued a great battle. Tail's advant age, however, proved too great a han dicap, and Hearne finally contented himself with second money on the 49th lap. The time, for the 50 miles was 43 minutes, 27 2-6 seconds for Vail; 43 minutes, 42 1-6 seconds Thomas was third. for Hearne. OVER 1200 RABBITS DESTROYED IN BIG DRIVE AT AVOW yrrrw iiii .i m .T '.V C , t can : 25 Mile Race Fast Evant The next race, the 25 mile for win ners of Saturday's, events, was the most- thrilling of : the day and prob ably the most spectacular dirt track contest ever waged in the United States. From start to finish it was a bitterly contested event between Vail and Hearne,' with. Jimmy Thomas in his Chandler .Special doggedly holding to third and staying, at all times, within striking distance of the leaders. ' Hearne got the pole at the start and shot ahead of the field on the first lap. He was nearly 150 yards ahead of Vail when they passed , the judges stand on the first mile, with Thomas right on Tail's heels. Only the three oars started. . . For the next two laps they raced almost abreast but on the third lap. Vail came off the south turn with a brst of speed and. opening her wide open, shot past Eddie on the back stretch. , For the next five laps he widened the gan separating him from Hearne, but Hearne was not to be denied. Starting on the eleventh lap. Hearne started In pursuit of the flying Vail and at 15 miles had crawled ko close to the leader that it appeared certain that he would pass him. For nine miles they raced in this position, increasing their speed every lap. Hearne would crawl up along side Vail with a burst of speed only to have Vail, with a sudden burst, push the nose of his car out in front sufficient far to keep Eddie in the rear on the turn. In con sequence, Hearne would lose .15 to 20 yards on the turn. but would quickly make up the loss on the straightaways. Ntck-and-Neck Finish - Going into the last lap. only a car length separated the , two machines. Thomas, who had driven one of the best races of his career, was only five lengths behind Hearne. . Hearne threw caution to the four winds on the last lap, opened his car wide and let her tear around the track without regard to turns. His daring was finally rewarded when he sttc- ceeded In passing Vail on the north turn as they were coming into the stretch- .Both cars came down to the finih line wide ooen. less than a car length separating them, with Hearne first and Vail second. Hearne's time was 21 minutes, 42-seconds. Thomas was third in 21 minutes, 51 3-5 seconds. ; The Australian pursuit race at 15 miles, for a $500 purse, winner to take all, brought out a, field of six. The cars were sent away at 10 second in tervals, the Ford Special first, Chevro let Special - second. Hudson Special third. Chandler Special fourth. Stutz Special fifth and Philbr In -Dusenberg sixth. On the first lap, they finished in that order hut on the second turn, the Ford and Chevrolet Specials were eliminated by the Hudson Special, driven by Crosby. Hearne was rapidly crawling up on Tlioma, second,, and Crosby, first, on the fifth lap and on the next turn around, eliminated the Chandler Special. On the seventh lap. the Hudson Special was put out of the running, leaving only Hearne and Tail In the race. Hearne was rapidly over taking the Tail car when It dropped from the race on the thirteenth lap. Hearne completed the 15 miles, his time being 13 minutes. 23 2-5 seconds. His actual time was 12 minutes. 23 2-5 seconds, inasmuch as he started a full minute behind the first car, for an average "'of better than 50 seconds to the lap. The final race of the day was the Tri-State championship for the Barney Oldfield trophy. Only four cars started, the Chandler Special, the Bennett; Special, the Ford Special and the Chevrolet Special. - Bennett, who figured in Saturday's sensational accident, was leading on the first lap and held this advantage for the next two miles, when Thomas passed him on the back stretch. Ben nett then dropped from the running, as did the Ford Special, leaving only Thomas and Binjhman in the race. They finished in that order. Cannonball Sanders was prevented from performing his cannonball stunt when his balloon took fire just as he was making ready for the ascension. Instead, he changed planes in mid air i without the use of ropes or a 'ladder. The Barr flying circus also performed several feas for the big crowd. VKINIAiLlfARy rabbits destroyed it was estimated that half "werecottontails and half jack rabbits. The largest number of animals killed by any one man was 23, T M. Maulden taking first prize, a box of cigars. . The hunters were divided Into four : squads, closing In on the open fields ifrom four directions, slaughtering the rabbits as they rushed before the ad vancing Nimrods. When the hunters open fire the report sounded like a barrage on the western front, with jacks and cottontails jumping from every conceivable spot on the vast open field. Staff Photographer Kunselman of The Republican worked. in the cen ter of the field and. filmed some close ups of the slaughter. A Fox camera man was also present to film views for the Fox Weekly. The supply of 12-gauge shells was exhausted by noon, but an "ammuni tion train" brought a new supply of shells in time for the afternoon hunt- Over 300 'persons were The hunters and their friends were about 16Q hunters tak- treated to a big "feed" at noon and 1 Over 1200 rabbits were killed yester day by hunters taking part in the 'jack rabbit drive, conducted under 'the di rection of W A. Gilchrist of the United States biological survey. - The drive was a huge success both from a sporting viewpoint and , from the assistance given the farmers 'who have been suffering losses due . to the destruction of crops by jack rabbits. One hundred and fifty automobiles reported at the Brooks ranch near Avondale at noori, with more coming every minute, present, with inp part in the drive. Of the 1200 after short rst the drive was re sumed with even greater success than during' the morning The Nimrods are looking forward to the next hunt .which Mr. Gilchrist promises will be held duirng the month. The opportunity to hunt jactta with ammunition furnished free ap peals to the hunters who enjoy the game. o . FORTUNE IN POSTCARD An unsigned postcard bearing the postmark "Toronto" i3 the very slender clew to a mystery which originated when the death occurred of one George Bellamy Dutton, a strange recluse of Houxton, England, who died as a pauper, but who is supposed to have had a private hoard. It is believed that his only living relative is a nephew Whose unsigned postcard was -found among the dead man's effects If all other methods fail to bring out the story of the old man's past, the author ities contemplate advertising in Cana dian papers with a view of getting into touch with the nephew, who may be in a position to clear up the mystery. . Dutton was buried by the par'sh of Hoxton. where he Teslded. Only 4 cents in cash was found in the garret where he lived for two years, but the police do not believe that he died a pauper. Entries in his ledger showed' transactions approaching 5 million dol lars. Dutton paid his rent rea;ularly, invariably tendering very old and dirty silver coins, but from what resources he drew these funds the police have been unable to discover.. That he owned property is obvious from his corre spondence. o The French nation Is facing & period of economic difficulties because the fever of speculation has not abated and other elements, such as the un? certainty of reparations payments, po- litical war clouds and the budget, have' combined, have combined in prolong ing th abnormal conditions. .
