Expected to Be Broken. CLASSIC VANDERBILT RACE Speed of Seventy-five Miles an Hour Will Be Necessary to Win. Savannah, November 5.?Four great races on the most wonderful road course In the world are In Store for those who will visit .Savannah. Ga., November 27-30. The meet, under Sa? vannah Automobile Club auspices, doubtless will go down In history us the most sensational of all speed car? nivals here or abroad. Announcement has been made that Ralph Do Palma will have one of tho ninety-horsepower Mercedes mounts, and Spencor 13, Wishart. tho other. The border Company w Irl outer four ,-ars?a pair m both Vanderbllt and Griihd Prize, with Mulford and Grant piloting. Six Flats, said lo be the fastest that ever left the Turin. Italy, factory, will compete. Three Bonz. with Speed King Rurman. the world famous Memory and Hearne driving, are entered. Dlsbrow will have the Pope ??Hummer." with which he brokn f-o many world's straightaway records last winter. This is to be entered In ti-.r Vanderbllt only Additional entries to the already long list are being lined up by Siartoi Fred J. Wugncr almost daily, and It Is safe to predict that between seven? ty-five and one hundred starters will i tight It out on the dates mentioned. ! While the ceneral public knows that | there will be road racing at Savan? nah within a few weeks. probably comparatively few fully realize what a monster meet It will be. There Is that famous national classic?the Van? derbllt Cup?to be run on Southern soil. Eight years ago this event had lt? Inception?the birth of American fiUtor.noblle racing?and six great struggles for the prize have been held on Eong island. Unquestionably it Is the best known speed event in the world. On November 27, the same day as the Vandcrbilt, the fourth Savannah challenge trophy race. a 221-mllo event, will be run?cars of 231-300 cubic Inches competing in this. Like? wise the battli ot lightweights, 101-130 Inch class, for the Tldeman trophy, of? fered by Mayor Tldeman, of Savannah. Incidentally, if any persons are under the Impression that these light cat races do not produce some sizzling speed and keen competition they are ( misinformed. Of course, tin- piece de resistance is Ihe thrilling International Grand Prise event. Thanksgiving Pay in this 10S mlle battle of the fastest Speed crea? tions on earth. American drivers, with American cars, will match their skill against tiie foreigners and endeavor to bring Hi. gold cup back to these shores ami incidentally win n princely amount of gold dollars. There have been two Grand Prize races?the first In 190S, won by EoulS Wagner, in a Flat, and the second, last seunoii. captured by DaivId Bruce brown In a Benz?two of the most if not toe most phenomenal races ever run. Tn? International event, as Is w,-ll known. Is sanctioned by the Au- , tomobtle Club of America, whereas the national .vents, including the Van? derbllt; are sanctioned by the Amer? ican Automobile Association. It Is practically assured that Die world' road race record will be broken. Inasmuch as the course has been reconstructed and greatly Im? proved, and the sharp turns eliminated, Rxperts predict that the winner of Die Grand Prize will be forced to over? age seventy-five miles an hour for the entire distance, for the pare for' by the speedier pilots win be tor; rifle. The Flat team sailed from New York for Savannah Saturday mornlnu. No? vember 4, on the City of St Louis, of the Savahnah?*ifive.

Foreign entries have to come through the recognized au? tomobile club In the country from Wl ich the entry comes, and this causes ?ome delay. IIONOII FOR THE WAVING Gllll..

Woollolk, wao was out ot the game yesterauy on account of injuries, aas practically clinched his position at i tackle. Jack Wellford, of last year's I scrub team, und Davidson, lb,' former i' me -->cnool captain, will be left to ; tighl for the other tackle, with chances I favoring the latter. Carter and .lett jure llxtures as guards, as is Captain i \vo,ei ,,t centre, i nese men are consid? ered the real cream of the talent on ' hand, and in their ability to play up to ' the standurd set thus tar rests a goo.l Ij ?aar? oi Virginia's chances in tliu I Otis game. As to the bncknold, it will undoubt? edly remain unchanged. Cooke. the former An.lover player, may be given the preference over Goodhtie ut full? back, but this Is problematical, as the latter has been depended on to do Ihe . punting thus far. and bis los> would i necessitate the development of another ' man for the Job To-morr?w practice will start in earnest for the Hopkins gamt in Bui ; timore next Saturday .

Tho American League pennant lor li?12 is already won, according to j general opinion, and It must bo con? fessed thut Just now there la little ] likelihood of uny club taking tho j < haniploashlp away from the Athletics. The only way they can do It Is for tho champions to meet with some un lcoked for and unlikely sotback ?.r ] for tho other clubs to bo madu coiiHld erably strongor. Ab possible rivals ot ? tie Athletics for first place, tho Bos I tm Bed Sox, Clevelands and Detroits j loom up best, und they are the only I ones that loom up at all. Marry Davis may take up with the Clevelands where they left off in 1911 and bring tbom Into further prominence, but there Isn't u club which on present prospects looks able to seriously j threaten tho world's champions. There Isn't enough age on the ' Athletic team for the danger of going buck to be great and the main ques? tion Is Whether the other teams cun bo j brought up near enough to a level I with the Athletics to make the race I for llrat place close. It Isn't on lin I possible or a hopeless task, although 1 It doesn't look as If the Detroits could ; stand pat und beat the Athletics. It , must be remembered that they were greatly handicapped through injuries i this year, were without the services of First Baseman Galnor and Third , Baseman Morlarty a good deal i f the time and with the team it.tact ' throughout the season are capable ot 1 making a Stifter light, j Tho White Sox, Hlgnlnndcra, Wash? ingtons and Browns as at present I made up are a long way removed j in class from the Athletics The High? landers have some good material, but the managerial situation is so dubious ! that the New York team Is not lo be relied on unless chase shows far greater ability u.-i u manager next season than he did this. 'Ihe White Sox are capable of considerable lln I provement on their playing oi this i year, and thut with their prest nt ma? terial.

Kvcn the Bostons are likely to win more games, und the Cardlnala look us if they will he! I tho same roving uncertainty as this year, varying from pennant to second division ball.
