he broke unofficially yesterday
with the almost unbelievable run
of .*>47.1 "» miles an hour.
It was thought at first that Eys
I ton would let John Cobb, his fa
mous countryman, have a crack at
the present official mark of 312.2
miles per hour, but Cobb said he
i would wait until Kyston determ
ined how soon his car—the mass
ive silver "Thunderbolt"—would
1 be ready for another run.
i Mechanics went to work on the
Thunderbolt late today. The elec
tric eye timing device failed to
catch the car as it roared through
tin- measured mile on the second
run required for an official rec
ord. Observers believed that Kys
ton was pushing the machine
faster than on the first run when
he went at a speed never before
attained by man on land.

tion, said an announcement on
the time for K.vston's next trial
might be made today.
