AUTO POLO GA3FKS
Most Dangerous Sport in tlie World
Coining to North Platte, June
22ml and 2rd.
North Platte Is to share in the 1915 !
internntlonnl series of auto polo mat-1
ches between the original teams rep-J
resenting America anil England. Fresh ,
from a recent series In the new'
stadium nt White City Park, Chicago,!
these famous teams are on a western 1
tour, and will come to North Platte
for two games Tuesday and Wednesday i
of next week.
Auto polo is really something new. i
Somo wit has termed it "motor insan
ity," but whether or no, during its'
short existanco, it has added friend and
enthusiast wherever presented .Com
ing into its' own following a three
week's series in the Madison Square
Garden New York, society went into
ecstacles at last something had been
found with an abundance of human
risk, something with action every ra
tional second, and. .it -has since, been
featured at the very largest state fairs
throughout the country-ns their crown
And now it comes to North Platte
for the first time. Ralph A. Ilaukinson,
originator and founder of auto polo
brings his originnl American and Brit
sh teams for two games only. This is
the third year of International matches
between America,.represented by Hnn
kinson's world champions the Amer
ican team, and Great Uritian's all
champion team, under Mr. Hankinson's
management for this year's aeries.
Auto polo had its conception, it is
said as the result of a wager between
two motor car salesmen as to their re
spective ability in pushing a tin can
along a road with the front wheel of
their car. Ralph A Hankinson, of . Kan
sas City, was a fortunate spectator at
this unique contest, and" with that rare
foresight so uncomon among men,
graspedv the opportunity they say
awaits a man onco In his lifetime. Not
stopping to sum up its possibilities, he
launched auto polo with a whiz and
a whir Into,, tho front ranks or sport
dom, enthusing masses and classes
from the very outset.
The rules of auto polo are very
similar to tho regulnr pony polo game,
with a natural re-vlsion to care for
the difference between horse-flesh,
Iron steel nnd rubber. Five periods of
ten minutes each constitute a full
game with a ono-inlnuto Intermission
between each period to administer to
tho wants of those untamed "gasoline
ponies" but not a moment of action Is
lost botwon each period. Although the
rules of the gamo call for two cars In
constant sorvlco, In somo games, due to
tho gruolllng thoy receive, as many as
eight to ten cars are brought into play
at the different stages. Press reports
from cities wliero these teams havo
previously appeared tell us that not
a moment of action is lost throughout
each of tho five periods constituting a
full gamo. Turnovers, spills, head-on-
colllsloiis, sprained ankles, etc., are of
frequent occurences, but the game goes
on uninterrupted, some new player,
somo new car ready on the dot to fill
It would renlly take a circus press
agent to describe tho attraction that
auto polo has. Chief of these is the
ever present danger of tho players
taking a header into a hospital. When
a sport holds that possibility, and in
auto polo it is more than a possibility
Its succcbs is guaranteed. Tho new
sport is n cross betw en a Vanderbllt
Cup Race, and an International polo
match, with nono of the sensations of
either missing, and several of Its' own
added. The autos arc built especially
for auto polo they need to bo to with
stand tho terrific strain. Tho machines
are striped baro to the chassis, with
steel hops over engines, radiator and
driving seat, thus forming a semblance
of protection to car und player. Thoy
ing along 3tmadn8tlysnr ctaonlctaoni
weigh about 1400 pounds each.
What's next on the sporting horizon.
That's going to bo the burning ques
tlon, Just now its auto polo, with all
its' throbs and thrills. It is not a show,
nor a circus, It is real American
sport- a game for every man, woman
or child with blue blobd coursing
through their veins.

door, and palling for his companion,
ho gave words of hopo and love and
then quietly stole away to the land
where sickness and Borrow anguish
and separation do not come.
He had fought a good fight. lie had
finished his course. He has gono for
