I. . k i l . W." Thf; Omaha Sunday Bee. OMAHA. PUN DAT, MARCH 12, 19U. YANKEES AFTER GRAND PRIX Manufacturer! Are to Enter Competi tion in France. LIMITATIONS ON S , IOt.'X CITY fan are claiming- the Western lenarue pennant tor this year. The bout they can get out of Paba Towne, ths manager of the team, la a promise to b up among the leaders. Sioux City has the f iilty of putting out a winning team and It la never tjulte safe to discredit It The owner ship has been very broad and generous In Its policies and expenditure of fnony when the Interests of the team were at stake. Moreover, It still has the Beuclus of the old, fighting, winning team. 80 that the fans may be right. But on the face of things as they now appear, Bloux City does not look formidable to us. The pitch ing atatf and outlaid are very much changed. Neighbors is ths only known quantity In outfield, unless, of course. Dr. Harry Welch should recant and join the lowans" to whom he has been traded by Pa Tlourks of Omaha. In ths box there Is go ing to be trouble. Bloux City scribes talk about Stave Melter filling Rad O Toole's place. They know, sr ought to know better. If Steven had been that good doubtless Hresnahan would have discovered It when " had him a year ago, or Rourke, who oss got him from Brennahan, to whom he went . originally from Sioux City, would have found It out. Pa Rourke may lack soma qualities In bass ball, but falling down on a pitcher Is not one of them. Mailer has strong points, but In the judgment of many of his friends, he has already done as good work as lis will do, owing to a peculiarity which amounts to a shoulder bound, snd bis best was never up to O'Toole. Tet It Is not our desire or pur pose to disparage Babs Towns's club. We have a wholesome regard for Babe and hie club. Only ws do not quite see how it Is going to cop this pennant this year. Its lnfled. to be sure Is stronger than Its out field, with Stem first, Andreas second. , Hartman short, and possibly , Battle Ax Welch third. Hartman la a corking good ' little short stop and timely at the bat and Stem Is good. Andreas is going rapidly, and Welch never was there, only by acci dent, bee Qulllln will be missed, unless he Is returned by Brooklyn. Lee has had a previous) chance in fast company ana missed It. The lead that obtains In Bloux City that It will probably land on top with Uncoin, St. Joseph and Denver to beat, may be sound, but It Is still open to queHtlon. Ws believe Denver and St. Joe are going to make stalwart fronts, but It Is doubtful If Lincoln will corns up to us splendid record of last year, though It may. Omaha should not be entirely nmittrrt from consideration here, for the team will have undergone some material v Irr 4 Improvements and at the close of 1910 h admittedly, piy'r,8 tn be,t ba" of , X "f'the league-aadmltted by Babe Towne, hlm- S gpif. Nntr.g would help the league more 4 than for either 8t. Joseph or Denver to T win the pennant, for both have striven 1 manfully to equip themselves for It. Pa f Rourke, however, is determined to go sftor the bunting snd will bs fighting all ths way along. I ENGINES One of the lnurst1n questions Just now Is who: will ply third base for ths Chicago Cubs this year. One report says Stelnfeldt has been placed on ths market, while an other denies it and neither Chance nor Murphy will deny or affirm, Zimmerman Is left ba the team and If Stelny should go. will cover the beg. His work thers In ths laat world's series was anything than satis factory. Somehow, the Idea of Btelny'e sale does not lis wsll with good Judgment and It la doubtful If ths management has decided on It. Ths big third baseman was Insisting, unwisely, of courss, on a three year contract and It may bs ths wily Murphy hopes to elub him over ths head with ths bluff about releasing or selling him to get him into 11ns on the salary and term deal. Omaha has about abandoned hope of re covering Riggert, who went under a a ran. io the Boaton Americans. His speed and Xillty to bat probably will keep him there or somewhere slss In faster company, al though hs will scarcely havs a chance as a regular In ths outfield. Ve has, acooro Ing to the box scores as i Jbllahed In the Pportlng News, opened up with his . stick In the practice games on the Paclflo coast, promising to clout ths ball consistently. Of course what hs will do against major timber In season is another question. Rales of (oatrit Make Special Class for High Power Machines Jlecea arjr ttreat Commercial Oaserlsallr. NEW YORK, March U.-The Motor Con test association officers are buay Inform ing prospective Grand Prix entrants ( the big automobile race's conditions. The local organization Is the American representa tive of the French promoters. M. Verey, chief of the technical board of ths Auto Club da la Farthe, has sent details of ths race to ths Motor Contest association. The Auto Club de la Harthe will bold ths Grand Frlx under the supervision of ths Frenoh National Motor club. The rules this year provide for two classes. In class A the bora and stroks of competing four-cylinder cars are limited to 4.33 inches and to 7.17 inches, respec tively, while In Class B tbs dimensions are unlimited. M. Verney admitted that ths open class had been created for tbs purposs of pro viding a race for American cars whose dlracntlons generally sxceed thoss of for eign manufacture and at the same tlms allowing the high-powered cars, such as the Bens, Flat, Renault, Da Dietrich, Clement and others that ars now owned privately, to compete. Nevertheless I expected that the fast est time would be mads by the new ma chines which are being built for Class A. This Is an opinion with which Americans mho are conversant with the speed and reliability performances of such cars as the Alco, National, Knox, Marquette-Butck, Stearns, Iir.ler, Simplex, Msrion, Stod-dard-Dayton and others will not agree. Primarily, therefore, it would seem that the American manufacturer and private owner would select ths open class and enter ths race with a reliable five-Inch engine. The first private owner to inquire for entry blanks was Milton D. Floyd of Syracuse, N. T. He Is planning to taks his Knox racing car, which la said to be capable of nlnty-two miles an hour, abroad and Is desirous of entering ths French race. The first Inquiry from a manufac turer came from an agent of ths Bulck Motor company on behalf of ths Marquette Bulck racing cars. As a matter of business policy, It is bard to see how any prominent manufacturer will pass' by ths race- Ths coronation in England will flood ths continent with buy ers, and hardly a mors psychological mo ment than the present could bo found In which to go after export trade and Intro duce American automobiles Into rich mar kets. In Europe the American car is un known or thought to be represented by such a type as ths front rheel drive with which Walter Christie mads an attempt to carry off ths French grand prise In 1906. The West of Francs exposition will draw enormous crowds to Le Mans, through which town runs the Sarths circuit, over which ths Grand Prix wilt bs contested. The circuit la fifty kilometers (thirty miles) la extent, over wide level roads, and ths courss contains but five turns. Luttgen, ths veteran Mercedes pilot, and Hemery of ths Bens team, toured over ths courss recently and stated that it was far superior to tbs ons over which ths Grand Prix was run In 107. . , Ths Sarths club wUt taks especial pre cautions to make ths courss safe. Wooden bridges will cross ths course at frequent Intervals, thus allowing spectators to watch ths races either on ths straightaway or at ons of ths turns. Ths international signal cods will bs used to warn drivers of ths condition of the road ahead of them. Entry fees ars 1600 for ons car, $800 for two cars and $1,000 for three. Entries may be mads through W. J Morgan, president of ths Motor Contest association, who is the official representa tive of ths Auto Club ds la Sarths, or through ths Automobile Club of America, which Is ths American member of ths In ternational Association of Recognized Automobile Clubs, under whoss rules ths race will bo run. Entry blanks ars ex pected with svsry mall, and may bs had at elthsr of ths above addresses. Tbs en try list closes on March 31 at ths regular fee and on June 1 at doub'.s fees. r ANNOUNCEMENT it vrl m is. assaw s nil - w "a. t r. a .' mil sjt mm TH-SIE IiEGAL CAJR.

There Is no delivery today, but we are just humping to keep pacs with the unprecedented demand. The popular ity of ths Overland bos literally swept the country like a flood. It Is wonderful what good advertising In newspapers, hacked by a merltabls article, can do. It has made a monster success of ons of the greatest businms enterprises In history for the Overland has come to the front and won hands down. And It Is going to stay there." "The theory of the western motorist who believed that he got better mileage by grinding .off the letters of the manufac turing company' a name from the sides of hla tires Is not practical," savs J. A, Bradsn of the Diamond Rubber company. "At least It Is not SO with Diamond tires. "This motorist's idea was that projec tions ef k'tonss or froaen mud In rough roads are likely to strike- the letters and tear out chunks of rubber. "For one thing, he does not realise, prob ably, that with the name gone hs cannot receive consideration from any tire com pany In esse of a claim. The Diamond name, which Is low on ths side walls. Is not embossed high enough to offer i sistancs to obstructions when a fully In flated tire Is used. Conditions so severe as to partly chafe the letters would chafe the slds walls if ths name were not on. "To Illustrate, a motorist with tires of lerge cross section might get Into a rut not large enough to admit his whols tire, in which event most of the wear would ba against the side wslls. The ehaflng of ths name would be only Incidental to the chafing ef the entire slds wall. following ths visit to Nsw Tork last week of Captain William Mitchell Lwts. president of ths Mttchell-Iiswls Motor oom pany of Racine, Wis., announcement was made that ths big $10,000,000 automobile concern had completed arrangements for the establishment of Its own branch in that City for ths purpose of handling ths entire Atlantic seaboard business, from the Nsw England states to the Mason and Dixon line. Manager Crais; of the E. M. F. company returned from a trip out Into the western part of the state yesterday. '"The outlook la fine," hs said. "Never saw farmers In happier mood. They have beautiful grain ao far. The roads are glorious." Ths E. M. Y. company rolled out six cars last week of the same model, all going to the same section of the state, and not one of the neighbors knew that ths other ex pected to buy a car that day until they began to -line up to go home. George Relnt did a land office business with the Cadillac last week. Among those In Omaha who purchased are Qaneral J. C. Cowls. K. C. Barton, Dr. C. E. Smith. During the last few days more than a dosen machines have gone out of this garage. lice Huff, manager for Nebraska Bulck, said: "Things aro looming up besutlfully. We are selling cars and we expect to make a new record for the Bulcks this year in Nebraska." J. M.

Iewia Doty, manager of the United Motor Omaha company, said that this season Is far ahsad of last season In sales. "I look for It to be the heaviest In the history of automobiles." A. I. Root of the Woodmen of the World purchased a Columbia automobile last week. The Columbia Is a new car here, but made friends at ths show and the rbanoes are that It will be one of the big sellers in this territory. Frank Kullck and his Ford Model "T" were tbe sensations of the big Mardl Gras speed carnival at New Orleans, accord ing to returning Detroiters. Kullck and his twenty-horse power car won no less than five firsts and a number of other places, Including two seconds. The Ford pilot on the mile track of the Crescent City Jockey club defeated all ex cept "Wild Bob" Burman and Caleb Bragg. Burman drove his 100-horsa power Bulck BpeclaJ, while Bragg had his ninety-horse power Flat, the fastest thing on wheela Colonel Jim Derlght returned from New York yesterday.
