DE PAW TRAVELS
A MILE IN 36 1-5
Beats Barney Old field by /-5 oi
a Second on Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES, April 3.— A speed of
practically 100 miles an hour was at
tained in the first preliminary skirmish
of the duel between Ralph de Palma
and Barney Oldfield for the world's au
tomobile racing championship on the
new circular plank track of the Los
Angeles motordrome today. Oldfield
had his 200 horsepower Benz and made
a mile in 36 2-5 eeconds, averaging 37
seconds for several miles.
He was followed on the track by De
Palma. who used Caleb Bragg's 90 Fiat.
De Palma turned the mile circuit in
36 1-5 seconds. The time was taken by
a number of experts and ia not dis
puted. It is the. second fastest mile
ever traveled by a human. Racing au
thorities here believe that the three
races on the motordrome next week to
decide whether Oldfleld or De Palma Is
the champion will produce a record of
120 miles an hour for the new track.
The race will be run. on three differ
ent day», so that it will be necessary
for the winner to secure two heats.

In'a hard fought polo match on Fran
cis. J., Cardan's field at • Crossways
farm yesterday^ afternoon the "Whites
defeated the Reds by a score of; 4 to 3.
It was not a Burlingame victory, how
ever,, as Tom Driscoll, who was out of
the game with' an. injured leg, was re
placed by.F. B. Hurndall, a: member of
the British team, and- Francis J. Car
olan took Hurndall's position with the
Englishmen. ;Burlingame t; was unable
to get.its best team together, and con
sequently the local players 'decided \u25a0 to
forfeit the Pope challenge cup to Gill's
team. 1 - . \u25a0 .
FASHIOXABI.B CROWD THERE
\u25a0 ' The announcement that the Burlin
game and British teams would play an
international match for the \ Pope cup
attracted the largest crowd as well as
the. most 'fashionable .-that -.has ever ac
cepted the hospitality of the Crossways
field. Consequently, the forfeiture of
the cup and the subsequent change in
lineup were disappointing.
With the throwln, tr»e Whites took
hold and swelled the hopes of their
partisans. Hobart and Hurndall scored
tries, in rapid succession.". Just before
the -sound .of the gong Cyril Tobin
pulled off a pretty backhand stroke and
John La wson sent the sphere between
the posts. But Lawson was offside and
Referee Scott refused to allow the goal.
3 In the opening of the second. chucker
the Reds began to give proof of their
prowess. Lee made two good attempts
and Hobson followed with another. Gill
scored. " Hobson failed, after being
passed the ball by Leo and Gill. Cyril
Tobindid some neat riding off; and
scored a try near the end of the period.
HOBART SCORES . '
The opening of the third was a poor
exhibition. Everybody missed. Finally
Hobart scored with a clean drive over
the goal posts. Gill also scored, mak
ing the score at the end of the period:
Reds 2,- Whites 1.
Walter Hobart carrfed the bair down
the field In a series of long drives in
the opening of. the fifth, but Lee, the
invincible back, saved the goal. Tobin
and Hobart; both scored, making the
score: Whites 3, Reds 2. \u25a0
Cyril Tobin, who played a first rate
game throughout, scored in the early
part of tho sixth. With v the score 4 to
2 against them, the Reds tried to brace
up. Major "Cee. made a beautiful try
from under the neck of: his pony. \u25a0• .The

OFF TRAP SHOOT
P. J. Walsh Is High Gun in the
California Wing Club's
Events at Stege
P. J. Walsh, the veteran trap shooter
of niack Point, captured high gun hon
or- at the California wingr club's sec
ond "white flyer" shoot for the cur
rent season at Stege yesterday by
grassing 23 of the 24 birds allotted for
the two club races at 12 birds each.
F. W. Munday brought down as many
birds as did Walsh, but the latter
shooter's clever work in the second
contest easily entitled him to first
place. Munday and two other shooters
scored straight In the first race, while
Walsh grassed 11, losing his second
bird.. In the afternoon shoot Walsh
grassed every bird trapped for him. and
brought all-but 2' of the allotted 12
down with the first barrel, making 10
remarkable center shots against a
* The birds trapped yesterday were the
fastest supplied In the state for
years, and the shooters were obliged to
put forth their best efforts to live up
to their • reputations as wing shots.
When the afternoon shoot was started,
the -grounds were swept by a strong
north wind, which was followed later
by a brisk breeze from the west. In
this race Munday scored 11 and was
the runner up with Walsh, while third
money was divided between Reuben
Haas and Louis Rink," who accounted
for 10 birds each. Clarence Nauman,
shooting from the 33 yard slat, missed
3 of his 12 birds and he was obliged to
use the second barrel on 8 of the 9
he brought- down. - The stronsr wind
proved'a greater drawback to Nauman
than his distance handicap. • .
The bluerock shoot-at Modesto kept
several shooters away from the meet,
among .them- being Clarence Haight,
Dick Reed and L. Posten, while Lester
Prior was away on business and W. J.
Goleher found fishing more attractive

grounds yesterday afternoon, in the
semifinal of the soccer cup competi

than their share of luck. The Indepen
dents played better football all the way
through, but were unfortunate when

played the Vamps.
The Vampires played with the wirnl
behind them in the first half, but they
could not gain an advantage until near
the end of the period, when Billy Lee
converted a cross from the right winy.
The Indies made many raids on thQir
opponents' goal, but could not get the
-ball where it would do any good.
The Barbarians and Burns played a
two goal tie previous _to the meeting of
the Indies and Vamps.
