Another record for Champion Har
roun—the coast record for stock oars
lor 100 miles—pulling down the time
made by Hamlin in the Franklin at
Ascot three years ago by 18 minutes.
It was a race where generalship of the
driver and perfect mechanism "f the
car proved a combination that could
not bo beaten. For Hurroun and his
speedy Marmon were ai their best;
no necessity for a Btop during the en
tire distance, and though the tires
were worn considerably at the finish
it is probable the car could have cov
ered another quarter of a century had
it been called on.
The real race in close company was
In the first live miles, for alter that
it was head work In playing a waiting
Maine, Harroun having perfect confl
- in his own machine and figuring
correctly that some of the other con
testants wouk! liar.' to come In for
tire changes or other repairs, which
would give him an advantage which
lie would drive to maintain when he
had to, Hut unfortunately the Corbln
lost so much tiui. in changing tires In
the sixty-seventh mile that the Mar
jnon sot a lead of ten miles: which in
reason could not i ome if tln>
car kept up. and rather than Jeopardise
winning the race, no serious attempt
was made to break a world's record,
iis it wan demonstrated to a rertalnty
early In the race that the coast record
for the distance would bo shattered.
In fact, it was, both by the; Mannou
and the Corbln.
X'\ff on any track was prettier
racing seen than In the first I
miles, and Al Livingston In the Cor
iiin hunt; close to the Marmon's wheels
from tape to tape. When the Corbln
inoiv the lead In the third mile the
conditions were reversed for the next
two miles, when Livingston, by a
Mrong spurt, pui a comfortable dis
tance between them, which was main
tained In relatively the same position
for the succeeding sixty miles. Wheth
er it was not a little ill-advised to
change the Corbin's tires at that time
i- Hi" n to que I
But it must be rem,ml,, nd that the
Marmon is practti ally a new car,
while the Corbln has seen much hard
service and has been considered an
unsafe car for some little time, But
drivers have Al Livingston's cour
>[e doi sn't know fear, and he
Rot every foot of distance out of the
little car that her mechanism was ca
pßble of. rsut few of Baturday's rac
ing spectators knew thai wben the
r'orbln was forced to withdraw In the
flfty-mlle event that the car had a
cracked hub w hen ntarted In the
for Livingston's driving never showed
b care. That particular se( of wheels
were done for, and it was only through
Livingston's resourcefulness that thi
ear was in Sunday 1 i races. A new set
(,r wheels had b^en placed overnight,
but not those with demountable rims,
and it was this fault thai lost the car
so much time in the tire change In the
100-mile event.
Both Harroun nml Livingston are
great drivers, and it is no disparity
tn either to say that Harroun's gen
eralship was offset by Livingston's
e\ il courage. Thi se two v

ing Champion Next Sunday
on Coliseum Track
The Coliseum matiaKoment has final

of the world, to meet Whlttler, who
lias been taking everything before him
nt the Coliseum this" season In a match
race next Sunday for a purse of $300,
which will ho split $200 to the winner,
$100 to the loser.
Those two motor Bonds have only
met once before In an open race, being
the last 100-mlla race held at the Colt

he is his real self again. He also soys
Whlttler'a wonderful riding does not

SEVERE TEST IS
PUT TO AUTOS
MUCH TIME IS DEVOTED TO
FINDING DEFECTS
Designers for Flanders Car Takes
Chassis Out for Road Work
to Note Wear and Tear
on Machine
DETROIT, March 13.—T0 timorous
mortal! the begoggled automobile^
tester who sweeps, by like a streak
Is an agent of the evil one, To those
who know him at close range he Is
a real (lech and blood man, with
the same good qualities that are to be
found in others of the race. To
the Industry with which he is identi
fied his services the Indispensable.
All cars look good on the showroom
Boor or In the garage. It is when they
get out on the road that the real test
comes, and the task of tuning them
up and getting them so they are fit
for service devolves upon the tester.
Even with the most careful construc
tion there are adjustment* that must
be made, the motor must be limbered
up and the performance of the car
carefully not! that there may be no
complaints once It has left the fac
tory.
in making these tests there is the
keenest sort of rivalry unions the
hundreds of. men thus employed to
see which can conjure up the most
difficult feat and in this manner
demonstrate the invincibility of hit
car. The weatherman lias lent valued
assistance the present winter, the
season having been the most severe
in the history of the automobile In
dustry. A dash out Into the country
from Detroit In any direction pro
vided road conditions that' could
hardly be worse, while even Belle Isi.
and the boulevard furnished tests
calculated to try the best of cars. Up
on Lake St. Clalr there have been
races and skidding matches, and If
any car managed to get by without
having defects shown up it was not
through lack of opportunity.
These tests mean more than the
public generally realize-. The day of
the doubtful car Is over. The pur
chaser has to be shown, and the only
way to show him Is by producing an
automobile that will stand up. If the
ordeals through which a new model
passes before it is put. on the market
were known, they would occasion sur
prise. In "ii' instance when the tests
of the Flanders "20" were under way,
the designer of the ear, James Heas
lelt himself an engineer of recog
nized ability, deliberately set out to
see if ha could break the new ma
chine.
Down a cross road that gave no evi
dence of having been traversed since
the last storm, he plunged the car
squarely into a snowbank well above
the frame of the machine. There was
a slight jar, a gripping as the car set
tled down to business, and with one
lunge the bank was cleared. Again
and again the car leaped forward,
. eager for the fray, and each time it j
emerged victorious. There is an ex
hilaration about battling with the
snow in this manner that takes hold
of you, a combination of doubt and
I triumph that makes you forget all
about the cold and attendant discom
forts. The merry purr of the motor
the swaying motion as the wheels
forca a passage, the uncertainty that
is quickly dispelled, lend a fascination
to the sport which makes it worthy a
king, and aft i the first few attacks
so (confident do you become of the '
car's ability t.> go anywhere that
drifts half us li'zh as the fence seem
commonplace, and '>v long for some
thing to battle with that' is worth ■
while. ;
Designer Heaslett has driven nvery-
i,,..-.. under all condition*, upending
entire days on the road and paxHins
half the night going over the car to
note whether wear and tear was lie
coming apparent. When finished lin
ear demonstrated its ability to with?
stand the strenuous service.

April i and will be driven by 01 t
the Chalmem champion racing team,
.;n will carry Dal Lewis, official
pathfinder of the A. A. A.i an official
photographer and the official associa

' wonderful new territory to the auto
mobile Industry. From Cincinnati th«
tourists will ko to Lioulsvllle, south
through Kentucky to NashvUle and
thence southwest to Memphis.
in Arkansas the principal control
will be at Little Roi k. the tour passing
through Hot Springs and reaching its
most southern point in Dallas, 'IVx.
The route will then extend northward
to ( tklahoma City and thence to JCan

UNDERSLUNG FRAMES
ARE GIVEN PRAISE
American Automobiles Are Said to
Have Structural Advantage—Eng.
lish Critic Comments on Tak.
ing Up of a French Idea
ono of the main structural features
of the American cars for several years
has been the underslung frame. This
has met with such favor in the past
that four of the 1810 models of Amer
ican cars are equipped with it.
An English critic lias recently pub
lished a short comment <>n the under-
Blung frame which is interesting. I'ic
tures Illustrating the underslung frame
and som, of its advantages were print
ed with tho article. The writer says:
"It la Interesting to watch motor «ar
development In America, where many i
of the best makei find so ready ■ mar- '
k' t thin tiicy are never heard of here.
Tims an Indianapolis dim jj building
can on the linos of the French Bta- '
biiia or underslung principle, which
was triod two years ago In Parla and
commented on very favorably. The
frame li limply Inverted and hangi
from the axle Instead of being super- I
Imposed, The side members are, there
fore, in line with the bottom of the
undershleld, and it a wheel should, for
any reason, break or be thrown, tho
car would slide harmlessly along like
a sledge on Its runners.
"Another advantage is thai the i■•
bound of the springs on a bumpy road
nets downward Instead of upward, so
thai the effect of a bad bump is merely
to cause a slight linking Instead ol a
violin! upward Jerk, Of course, the
arrangement makes s car far morn
stable; In fact, it in almost Imposslbli
to overturn it. and larger wheels ran
be used, thus giving easier running and
less tire wear. 1 have long slnco
i oved that low seats are a great -1«I
vantage and a low-built four-seated
body on this chassis looks very well
and will provide Ideal comfort, hope
one of our leading makers will take
iip this Idea, as it docs not Involve
much alteration of existing designs."
