INDIANS REST BEFORE MEETING LEADERS; TRIBE READY TO SCALP THE ST. PAUL CREW Double Win Over Colonels Re stores Missing Pep to Hoosier Outfit. REHG CRASHES BALL I All was peaceful and serene at the Indian battle ground today following the massacre of the Louisville Oolouels yesterday. This was an off day for the Tribes men. as well as every other club in the association, and the local warriors were busy gathering up a lot of pep for their first clash of a four-game series with the leading St. Paul club tomorrow. * Yesterday's double victory instilled the Hoosiers with a lot of confidence and completely built up their somewhat ragged spirit. Thev won the series with the Colonels and they have hopes of treating the Saints and all other clubs coming here during their present home stav in the same manner. Clint Rogge and Jess Petty pitched great ball for the Tribe In their double bill yesterday and their teammates paid their" share of the charges with air-tight ball in the field and timely stick work. Walter Rehg broke up the classiest lit tle party that has been staged at Wash ington park for some time when he soaked the apple on the nose and sent it sailing out to left field. No one stopped to figure how many bases the hit would have been good for. because it brauglit Tex Covington in from second base, and that was ail the Indians and fans needed to make the day a perfect one. Rehg's hit ended the second fray, which went six teen innings. Both games were won over the 2-to-l route. _ At the start of the first fray Tommy Long was a trifle wild and the fans figured there was an easy Indian victory coming, but they were fooled. The Colonels and Tommy himself tightened before the contest was Tery old and made the locals hustle for every advantage. The first Indian tallv was registered In the second round when Schreiber tripled to left center and Gossett singled to left. The Indians would have scored in the first frame had not a brilliant double jgay, the first of five during the contest, cut them down. DUKE MAKES THE CIKCUIT. Again in the fifth round did Hendricks' athletes count. In this frame Rogge led off with a single to right. Reilly at tempted' to sacrifice, but forced Clint at second To make amends. Duke stole and went to third while Wortman was throwing Shlnners out at the initial sack. Duke then carried the run home, when Wortman threw wide to Hirke on Cov ington's grounder. The visitors counted their lone first game marker in the seventh. Lamar tripled with one oat and came home when Smith played for Kirke at first base on a grounder instead of trying for the man going home. The second game had all the require ments of a real baseball battle. PETTY MAKES GREAT COMEBACK. Petty, after pitching eight innings Sun dav, came back for another try at the Colonels and handed them more stuff than they could handle Decatur and Wright also had the Indians in the tight places most of the time, but not all the tl *Lo"ulsville stepped in and knotted the con it in the eighth round, or rather Kocher stepped in and knotted the count. He hooked the pill square and sent it sailing over“the low left field fence. After that It was a pitchers' battle until the sixteenth round. Then Waiter Rehg, who is looking hot at third in O Mara s place, put the fray on ice for the home club. Indians Clean Up Indians. AB.H. O.A.lGolonels AR.H. O. A.

Duesenberg Positions in Race Gratifies Director of New Local Factory “The performance of the Duesenberg cars In the big race was mighty satis factory to the officials of the Duesen herg Automobile and Motors, Inc., said L. M. Rankin, general manager and vice president. This company is to build its factory in Indianapolis on ground purchased at Harding and Washington streets for the manufacture of the Duesenberg cars, to be equipped with the "Straight Eight” e-Kutert- twch as was used in the Duesen berg tars yesterday. The performance of the Duesenberg crs was particularly pleasing to Fred B. Duesenberg, who was working out the cars almost to the last, the cars having been made ready but a few days before the race. "Third, fourth and sixth for our own cars, with the Muiford Special and Re- Tere, finishing ninth and tenth, *~eing equipped with Duesenberg motors, is in deed more than we had hoped for,” said Mr. Rankin. “That this sort of record should be made in the Indianapolis race, imme diately preliminary to the starting of the building of the factory, is indeed pleading.” Junior teams desiring fast competition are asked to call Prospect 1964 and ask for John- 1 WINNERS AND PRIZES The order of finish, the official time and the distribution of the prize money In the eighth international sweepstakes foUow: Miles Speedway Lap No Car and Driver.

Wild Excitement Marks Finish of Auto Classic Honors Snatched by Local Pilot and Car in Last Few Laps. G. CHEVROLET WINNER Indianapolis Driver Speeds to Victory When DePalma’s Mount Fails. Speedway glory was brought back home In the running of the eighth an nual 500-mile classic yesterday in a fin ish that fairly blazed with excitement. Gaston Chevrolet, Indianapolis, driving a locally built Monroe, breezed across the finish line first, after having taken the lead only since the 188th lap (470 miles). He was the sixth driver to hold the honor position during the all-day grind and when *he finally moved up into the advance position circumstances indicated ’ that he was there to stay and that is when the stands broke loose with thun derous cheering. Indianapolis car, Indianapolis driver, no wonder the throng cut loose with the Joy stuff. TOI'GH LUCK HITS DEPALMA. But amid the cheers for the ’victor there were also many regrets for Ralph DePalma, who lost first place In the 187th lap after having led the field since the I 111th lap. DePalma had a safe lead, apparently, when his car sprang a leak, the gasoline feed line breaking. A small blaze started and DePalma was forced to stop as he came out of the north turn. The blaze was extinguished, hut the gasoline had leaked out nud Peter De- Paolo, Ralph’s nephew and mechanician, ran one-half mile to the pits to get a supply of gasoline. It was during this time that Gaston —Photo by lies ter Nagley, Times Staff Photographer. He Is here shown on his last trip to the pits trying to repair the car and get bark in the race He returned, all right, but ills lead was gone. Chevrolet shot into the lead and. though Depalwa finally managed to get back Into the race, he had lost so much time that he got no better tl)3n fifth. It was the second 500-mile race that DePaima lost near the finish, but he didn't fail to srnlie through and ho was applauded each time he passed the stands. G. Chevrolet's time for the distance was 5:38:32 for an average of A5.55, which is under the record established by De- Palma In 1915. Joe lioyet was the first to take the lead in the starting field of twenty-three cars and he set a pace that rapidly forced the less prepared cars to drop out. DePaima had tire trouble at the very start and lost some ground. In the meantime Boyer set n terrific pace and he held it almost continuously until the 104th lap, when he was forced to go Into the pits to get a supply of oil ana gaso line and the stop cost him the honor po sition. Rene Thomas in a Bnllot shot into the lead at this point, but was soon over taken bv the flying DePnlma, who went out in front seven laps later—the 105th. Ralph then settled down to win the race and he was not headed until bad luck overtook him in the 187th lap after he had built up a lead of more than two laps. Gaston Chevrolet drove an excellent race and, though his driving went unher alded In the early miles, fie gradually crept up until he placed his car in the position that enabled him to uilvance over the field when DePalmas mount faltered. The winner made only two stops dur ing the entire event, at 250 miles when ho stopped to take on oil, gas and water, and in the 197th lap, when he halted to take on more gas. RENE THOMAS RUTS ll* BATTLE. Rene Thomas, who finished second, also drove a good race to get the posi tion he did. 1-Ie faced many handicaps being forced to 6top at least five times, and once he narrowly escaped injury .when his car became unmanageable and be bounded against the retaining wall. Late In the race Ira Vail relieved Joe Boyer and then near the finish Boyer again took the wheel only to be spilled on the 197th lap. His car turned over and both Boyer and his mechanician, Erneßt Ansterberg. were slightly injured. > That accident finished Boyer’s car and eliminated him but he profited greatly by -winning a big slice of tho lap prize money because of the many laps hs won the first half of the event. Tommy Milton, driving aa Duesenberg. finished third, and Jimmy Murphy, a' teammate, landed fourth place plum. Following DePaima, who got fifth, was Eddie Hearne in a Duesenberg, the third car of that make to get in the money. Jean Chassngne, Ballot, was seventh; Art Klein (relief for Joe Thomas), was eighth, in a Monroe; Ralph Muiford, Muiford Special, was ninth and Tom Alley (relief for Henderson), was tenth :u a Revere. Two previous 500-mile winners, now ard Wilcox and Jules Goux, were forced to leave the race when their Peugeot mounts balked. Wilcox dropped out of fthe field on his sixty-third lap, but he received much applause from his admirers as he walked down the side of the track to the pits, having left his car at the side of the stretch. It was certainly a neck-craning day for the crowd. Attendance was estimated by Speedway officials at 120,000, which sur passes by 10,000 the previous 500-mlle race attendance record. The majority of fans came early, but late comers streamed in until noon and every stand was packed. It was an orderly crowd, an orderly race and a lucky race, inasmuch ns not one serious accident occurred on the track. There were several spills, Art Klein in a Frontenac figuring In the first wreck when his car turned over in the fortieth lap. Driver and meohanicisian were thrown, but they rolled over uninjured despite the fact that the car was said to be hitting it qp at ninety miles per hour at the time, j - i Louis Chevrolet, brother - - tbs victor SPEED VICTORY AN ALL-INDIANAPOLIS TRIUMPH and designer of the winning Monroe car, received a wrenched back when the ing knuckle on his car broke and the careening mount caused Louie to be shaken up considerably. Louis was forced to give up, but rapid repairing was done and the popular de signer and driver kept his car in the race by putting Balderino at. the wheel. Then " motor trouble developed am. Balderino finally called it a day and took the car off the track The race started promptly at 10 o’clock and when the last car was waved track in the late afternoon it was 5:20 o'clock. Barney Oldfield In a Marmon led the pace making lap and he gave the racers an excellent start. From then until the sensational finish the roar of the racing motors was con tinuous and deafening and the specta tors were kept busy glimpsing scattered brushes between ears and other thrills of the track. Although DePalma and Boyer got the big slices of the lap prize fund four others broke In on the plum for smaller amounts. G. Chevrolet, the winner, got $1,300. representing the last thirteen laps. Rene Thomas led seven laps and got S7OO, and Jean Chassagne and Art Klein led one lap each and got SIOO apiece. r. v.. the “makinY ’of a good cigarette may start with, say, Tuxedo or “Bull” Durham Tobacco .... but they don’t end there by a long shot.... the finest* of paper is required.

The Entrant That Raced Unannounced There was one racer in the 500-mile | classic at the speedway yesterday that came on the track unheralded and un sung, but while it was on the course It created nearly as much excitement as Gaston Chevrolet when he received the checkered flag. This unofficial entrant in the big grind was not on wheels and was not entered in the program. It was the longest legged rabbit that ever scurried and the manner in which it put on its little sprint down the home stretch threw the inultiude into near turmoil. It was along about 440 miles when the cottontail made its appearance. Most of the flying motors were either on the back stretch or riding the north turn, leaving the home stretch clear, when Mr. Rabbit darted out from the infield across from grandstand B and started down the middle of the course. On and on he hopped, in front of the press stand, the paddock stand and when he approached the pits he stopped, took a look around and darted off again into the infield. Perhaps it was an omen of good lack, because not one fatality occurred dur ing the day. Akers' American Railway Express nine suffered a setback by the South Side Turners Sunday, at Garfield. The score was 14 to 8. Recovery of Vaughn iXeedea to Put cubs Over the Breakers Mitchell Can’t Hope to Reach Goal Without Hippo’s Aid. Jim Vaughn's shoulder can’t stay lame very long without beaching a very good Cub ship that is steaming pennantward or thereabouts. Fred Mitchell has only two aces—Al \ exander the Great and Hippo Vaughn— to play for a SIOO,OOO pot. If one of them loses his color, he may Just as well throw liis whole hand in the discard. Tris Speaker up to the present time Is rocking in the same boat. Stan Coveleski and Jim Bagby have been his lone de pendable hurleTS. The pennant can be won on two pitch ers, as Kid Gleason showed the world in 1010. but they have to be iron men. But if the Cubs or Cleveland run into a bunch of bad weather and find them selves facing a late season schedule filled with double-he.aders, they may have to give way to another club. If either team should have a task put to them like the champion Reds had last summer, when they played the Giants six games in three days, they might crack. SHAMROCK GOES FOR FIRST SPlty Big Green Craft Prepares for Cup Race. NEW YORK, June I.—Shamrock IT, under full racing rig for the first time since 1014, was scheduled to get her first trial spin on Long Island sound today. The big ‘fgreen” sloop, strangest of all the craft Sir Thomas Llpton has sent across the broad Atlantic to lift the Amer ica’s cup, is ready at last to spread her “wings” in the wind, and her efforts un der the vast expanse she will carry are sure to be watched with keen interest. William P. Burton, amateur skipper of the Shamrock; Col. Neill, Claude Hick man and Charles Nicholson, will be aboard her on her maiden trial. All are enthusiastic over her appearance and con fident she will behave satisfactorily. The crews of the Resolute and Yanltla are making final preparations for the of ficial trials to determine the defender of the Americas cup. Why not a Rupp-Merit or Rupp-Ttger game next Sunday? ‘Peggy” RochfUMi| has organized a club composed of th? best amateurs in the West street sector and he is anxious to meet the Merits and Tigers any time and any place. Their victory over the Belmonts shows that the Rupps can hold their own among the class of the city.
