They're half the team when speed records are being attacked, but the grimy-faced mechanicians who ride with Resta, De Palma, Chrietiaens, O'Donnell, Riekenbacker and all the other demon auto wheelmen are al ways overlooked jn the rush. There's very little spotlight stuff for these chaps who flirt with death to play such important part in the failure or success of the cars. Frank Bill of Wolverhampton, Eng., a member of the Knglish Sunbeam racing stable, is such a mechanician, lie's a slip of a lad, 21 years of age and until recently worked in the avia tion department of the Sunbeam plant. Because of his height, feet 2 inches, he can't, get in the liriiish army and came over to drive with Chris.iaens, the Belgian. It was this combination that finish ed third behind Itesta and I)e Palma in the "00-mile race at Chicago, where Resta averaged 99 miles an hour. The Sunbeam stopped only once and this was for gas, the halt consuming 30 seconds. Little Bill is a typical Britisher and says in a few years he will construct a ear himself and give all the present day cracks a run for their money. He is the youngest mechanician in pro fessional races in America today. In addition to taking gas in 30 seconds Bill has changed a tire in 13 seconds. NAG SHAKES HANDS WITH HIS TONGUE Cincinnati, June 23.—Colonel Ven nie, thorough-bred race boss, owned by Jeff Livingston, is a hand-shaking nag.

To prove his assertion, the trainer in vites anybody who has the time to come in and greet the colonel in the hitter's quarters at Latnnia track.

Several years ago while pitching for the Boston filed Sox, Anderson was studying dentistry on the side. Finally he decided to give up baseball and follow his other profession. He bought out the practice of an old tootli carpenter down in Georgia and hit 1.000 in the prosperity league. Finally his health broke under the strain. A physician advised him to take a long-rest and be outdoors as much as possible. The Federals, jus} starting up, offered an opportunity and Anderson grabbed it, signing with Buffalo.

Paradoxical as it may seem when the contestants in the national clay court tennis- tournament trot out on the courts of the Lakewood Tennis club at Cleveand, starting today, they will not perform on Ohio soil. In stead they will disport on clay Im ported from Massachusetts. The Lakewood club, in its efforts to have everything spick and span for the stars, imported soil from the Cape Cod state and had every court cover ed four inches deep. The head ground-keeper has been busy with a staff of men for several weeks, "doc toring" the courts. Today they are as hard and smooth as the top of a billiard table.
