CHICAGO. Nov. 14. 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

able to win but one of the three events
in which he started at the state fair
grounds yesterday, the last of a two
day race program that developed some
of the prettiest contested racing ever
witnessed in the southwest. 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.

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.

: 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
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
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.
