Many a Batting Eye Has Been Ruined Looking for Openers
Promoter! of Enterprise Enthusi
astic Over Long List of Speed
King Coming.
By Monday evening the entire surface
or the track will be finished at the ne
Auto Speedway near Carter lake. Work
"n the grandstands, 1.3M) feet long, m
now under way, and the big concrete)
tunnel for autos, under the track, Is also
I'elng pushed to completion.
Speed fans who have recently Inspected
the Speedway are enthusiastic over the
prospects for breaking rcord, ns well
us for handling the Immense crowds that
lll rlock to see the world ranious driv
ers who are coming for ti.o JuO-mile
world's classic to be staged July 3, a
I' gal holiday, for a 15,ono purse.
Fastest Jprrdnn).
'Drivers are going to call it u regular
oy ride," says President Bert I.e. Bron
of the Speedway association. "World's
records for the distance are going to be
smashed, or 1 miss my guess, for It is
the fastest speedway ever built."
With a beautiful surface of 2x4 timbers,
lnld on tdxu, thereby eliminating all
dust, mud an! olrl, and the carefully
ugtiiuc red ir -ihiHus on the big, easy
curves, tlii' si.ct-'luay uffcrs every In
ducement to speed, with perfect safety
at the same time. The curves are so con
structed that they can be taken without
halting an eve or lessening speed a bit.
The engineers who designed the track
say that It will hold a speed of over 100
miles an hour with perfect safety.
Two broad etralght-awaya of almost
half a mile each, combined with the lofty
grandstands, will give every one of the
thousands. of spectators a full view of
the snorting speed kings throughout the
entire race of 300 miles around the mill
..And a quarter track.
To Re Completed Monday.
For the last few days Contractor C. R.
Vaughn, -the man who superintended the
erection of Hotel Fouf.-nelle and other
gigantic construction work In Omana,
has been working 125 carpenters and al
most as many laborers full time on the
track surface work. He would have fin
ished It Saturday had not the last ship
ment of 2x4 lumber been delayed, and
he says that It Is sure of completion
by tomorrow.
Po big is the course that a casual visitor
glancing over it from a point of vantage
hardly realizes that a regiment of men
is laboring there. Yet a trip around, the
track and a careful count of the work
men proves the surprising elite of the
working force.
An investment of 395.0C0, Including prize
money, is represented to date, according
to figures compiled by Treasurer Adolph
Stors. Considerable more money will be
ipent in finishing the enterprise and mak
ing it complete In every detail for thi
accommodation of the crowds, so that
when the elimination trials begin Satur
day, Jly S, Just three weeks from yes
terday, tba whole project will stand it
backers at least 1100,030. they assert.

track, to permit easy Ingress and egress

English-Bred Colt Takes Derby
Honors by a Full Length.
CINCINNATI. June 12. Itoyal II, an
English bred colt, owned by Jefferson
Livingston of Chicago and New York,
won the thirty-second renewal of the
La ton ia derby at the Latonla, Ky., race
track today, by a full length of Dortch,
who was tiring rapidly toward the end
after being a prominent contender the
better part of the. way.
The race was worth 310.125 to the win
ner, and he paid 34.SO for a 32 ticket In
the pari mutual betting.
Takes Premier Honors.
Royal II. bay son of Your Majesty
Lady Ethel, proved himself worthy of
carrying off the premier honors that
Latonla has to offer. Off well to a per
fect start. Jockey Gans rated him along
under slight restraint until the first three
quarters of a mile had ben traversed.
When straightened out on the back
stretch Gans let out a few wraps and
Royal II responded immediately, and
gradually closed In on his field. Gans
worked htm into third place passing the
starting post, and at the mile and a
quarter Goose on Tetan, noted that
Royal II was on his horse withers.
Then came the real battle for suprem
acy. But the gameness of the English
colt was not to be denied and the horses
passed the final eighth pole nose to nose,
with the stout-hearted Dortch only a
head behind. Little by little Royal II
was seen, to push forward, and at the
final sixteenth pole was In a commanding
position, and won by a length from the
tiring Tetan, who was the same distance
ahead of Dortsch.
Day Is Fair.
The day was fair, the track was fast
and the crowd was probably the largest
that ever wended its way through the
Latonla gates.
Royal II was favorite in the betting,
with Emerson Cochran a second choice.
The latter was never a serious con
tender after the first half-mile, and fin
ished last. Tetan was an outsider In the
betting and was reported to have been
withdrawn earlier In the day, but owner
Perkins decided to start him at the last
moment, and the horse paid 322.30 for a
1 ticket to pla.ee and SM0 for a 33 ticket
I for ahow. Lortsch paid 34.30 for a 32 for

Mayor Dohlman was on hand to chuck
the first ball, just like In a league ball

water and the various players stand on
floats six feet square, the mayor refused
to take any chances and be threw the
pill from the dock, where there was no
chance of skidding Into the brinv deep.
The game is played Just like base ball,
except, as before mentioned, the players
stand on floats and swim after the ball
and fro rnbasn to base. Thinking that
the batters would knock the ball too far,
some far-seeing youth sawed off the
bats. Then it was discovered that with
the short sticks the ball couldn't be
poled much farther than second base.
