REST A WINNER
IN MOTOR RAGE Three Are Hurt, One Is Believ ed to Be Dying. SPEEDING GARS JUMP TRACK Sl°w Time Made at the Indianapolis Speedway—Rooney and Aid Injured When Car Hits Top of Wall; Le* Cain's M°unt Turns Turtle —D’Alene Runs Second. INDIANAPOLIS, IND.—Sound judg ment, patience, a perfect mechanism am a rema. .... ly tact pit* crew gave Derio Resta aii.i Ills Peugeot automo bile the $12,1/ j into:national sweep st R . 3 here. 1 lie name fortuitous circumstances gave to Wiihi r d’Alene second in his shale. , wiate Duesenberg. The luck of . ic.or racing, the misfortunes of le.;s caieua judgment and the va garies of motor materials played hob with all the others of the twenty-one who scooted in wild abandon from under the starter’s flag. One Driver May Die. Two accidents cut into the even ness of the day, leaving Jack Lecain, a Delage substitute driver, possibly fatally injured; Tom Rooney, who was driving brilliantly in one of the three green Premiers, wfith a broken leg, and Rooney’s mechanician, Jim McAllister, badly bruised. Lecain’s car flopped over suddenly on the north stretch. His mechani cian jumped and was able to get out from under the hood so that he rolled along unhurt. Rooney’s car swung into the wall at the top of the rail at the south end of the field. McAllister was thrown over the rail into the outfield and Rooney was caught when the car rolled back. Speculators Grow Weary. A fair-sized crowd saw the race and cheered the drivers when the latter would save their speed stunts for display before the grand stand, but toward the end an apathy settled down over the watchers w T hen it was seen that the speed being made was nothing phenomenal. Some Quit Early. One by one the drivers dropped; beginning at the fifth lap and continu ing until the eighty-third. One after another dropped into the pits for tire changes, spark plugs, gas and oil. It was only after the hundredth lap had marked the end of 250 miles that a definite conclusion might be drawn as to the winner. Resta’s pace fell off then and he never tried to bet ter it, so that his final time for the 300 miles w T as 3:36:10.8, a speed of only <83.26 miles an hour, which is nearly seven miles an hour less than the speed at this period of last year’s 500 mile race.

President Wilson’s note delivered to British and French embassies is said to vigorously protest against the med dling with first-class mails between the United States and neutral coun tries. Friday, May 26.—President Wilson is reported to be preparing a move to end the European war. It is said the president thinks both rulers and peo ple of Europe w T ould welcome such a step. The French report retaking a trench at Thiamont farm in the Verdun sec tor, and Berlin reports capturing 600 prisoners in taking a ravine near Dou aumont. Rome dispatches tell of an attempt of the allies to begin the end of the war by a vast offensive in Mesopota mia and in the Balkans. The dispatch names Italy as participating in the drive, the first time Italian troops have been reported in the Balkans. Saturday, May 27. —The United States, denouncing interference with neutral mails, notifies Great Britain and France that it can no longer tol erate the w'rongs which American cit zens have suffered and continue to suffer through the ‘‘lawless practice” those governments have indulged in. and that only a radical change in pol icy, restoring the United States to its full rights as a neutral power, will be satisfactory. The Germans have opened anew bombardment on the west of the Meuse with the evident purpose of aiming a blow with infantry at the enemy’s left flank in the Dead Man hill sector. A Havas dispatch from Athens says it has been learned from a reliable source that 30,000 Bulgarians have been brought from the Black sea coast to reinforce the Macedonian front.

After crossing the Aegean Sea with out loss, the Serbian army in full strength, or about 100,000 men, now has been landed at Saloniki, according to a dispatch received at Paris by wireless telegraph. Monday, May 29.—The Greek govern ment, according to dispatches from Athens, is determined on a policy of nonresistance, against the Bulgarian invision, but grave disturbances have broken out in Athens and elsewhere, which may lead to mutiny on the part of the army and revolt on the part of the people. A British force in Africa has pene trated twenty miles into German ter ritory on the front between Lakes Nyassa and Tanganyika.

The strike of 600 laborers on building jobs, which has been in progress here a week, was settled by the employers agreeing to the 30-cent scale for which the work ers were contending. GOOD ROADS PAY Economic Benefits Easily Recognized— Improve Social Conditions in Rural Sections (Prepared by the U. S. Department of Agriculture) Use of Split-Log Drag, Arlington Farm, Virginia. It is estimated that the people of this country annually waste $250,000,- 000 because of bad roads. Investiga tions have shown that the average cost of hauling on roads in the United States is 23 cents per ton per mile. It costs the farmer more to haul a bushel of wheat 9.4 miles, the average distance from farm to shipping point, than it ordinarily costs to ship it from New York to Liverpool. In France, England and Germany, consu lar reports show instances where the cost of hauling agricultural products is as low as 10 cents per ton per mile. If the farmers of this country could reduce the cost of hauling to 13 cents per ton mile, they would save about $250,000,000 which now repre sents their ‘‘mud tax.” The benefits of good roads are nu merous and far-reaching. They are a powerful factor in promoting better farm conditions throughout the coun try. They make the farmer more in dependent of seasonal and weather conditions and permit him to take bet ter advantage of favorable market and prices. They increase the value of his farm and so enhance his material wealth. They promote better agricul tural methods and are necessary for an efficient rural delivery and parcel post. They have a profound effect on our country schools and the home life on the farm. There are indeed few investments which the farmer can ,# If!/* ~,:, . * • > Township Does Not Care for Engineering Advice. country, .it is a well-known fact that in our rural schools the attendance almost invariably shows a marked de crease during the periods when the roads are bad. Another point worthy of consideration is that the one-room school is being supplanted by larger consolidated schools throughout those portions of the country where condi tions make it practicable to convey children to school at the public ex pense. Roads passable at all times are most necessary for successful school consolidation. There is abun dant evidence to prove that any ex tensive road improvement is followed by better schools and better school attendance. In some of these schools, advanced courses have been intro duced, and it has been possible to employ teachers having special quali fications and training. With good roads, some of the ad vantages of the city can be brought to the country. Social gatherings be come more frequent, and improved social conditions exert a decided ef fect upon the principal objections to life in a rural community—loneliness and isolation. This is due partly to the decreased cost of hauling and partly to the fact that a good road makes the farm a more desirable place to live. Moreover, improved roads have a market effect on both the amount and character of production. For exam ple, around the typical small town, when the roads are not improved, truck gardening, dairying and other forms of intensive farming are con fined to a small zone, immediately surrounding the town, which is usu ally scarcely sufficient to supply the local demand. Without good roads the production of perishable goods at any considerable distance from mar ket or shipping point is too hazard ous an undertaking to be profitable. With good roads the produce can be brought to market with regularity and in prime condition, two essentials in successful marketing. The parcel post makes possible di rect marketing between producer and consumer regardless of distance. But here again the public roads play no small part, affecting not only possible extensions of the system, but also the cost of its operation. The condition of our rural schools is closely connected with the condi tion of the public roads. While it is true that various factors contribute to increase or decrease the attendance at schools in given sections of the from which he is so sure to re ceive generous dividends as from good roads. A reduction in the cost of hauling is one of the most immediate benefits of a good road. A striking instance of this is shown by investigations conducted in Virginia where the av erage distance from the farm to the market is 7-8.10 miles, and the aver age load for the staple crops is about one ton. Assuming that the wages of a two-horse team and driver are $3.00 per day, it costs the farmer in Vir ginia an average of 26 cents per ton mile to market his crops. If the roads were graded and improved with a sur facing suitable for the particular road and region, the load could be in creased at least 50 per cent and the round trip made in the same or less time without any additional hardship on the team. This would represent a clear saving of $1.50 per day to each farmer in the state for every day in the year in which he was engaged in hauling to or from the market. The increase in land values is an other benefit that is noticeable wher ever road improvement takes place. After Eight Years Edgerton Testimony] Remains Unshaken. Time is the best test of truth.
