Tilt; drivers who have entered the
A. A. A. races at. North Platto on the
Fourth of July will be here. They arc
members of the A. A. A. and as such
are under contract to do as thoy agree
to do. A letter from the headquarters
of the A. A. A. irt New York informed
Manager Crawford early In the season
that It was not necessary to require
the racers to post a forfeit In cnsc
thwy did not appear. The letter reads
"The fact that n driver signs such
a contract at the A. A. A. contract
which you are using will obllgato him
to make his appearance or ho will
bo disqualified and the matter reffored
to this board and made permanent
providing there aro no circumstances
which would indicate that it was
either physically or mechanically im
possible for him to start." They aro
dealing with organized auto racing
as thoy have dealt with organized
base ball. Jumping a contract there
Is almost unknown.
George Kirchuber undor dito of
June G writes as follows: "I will ship
my car crated via American Railway
express J. S. Davis Auto Co. about
the 20th of June and same will arrive
about the 25th. I will bo in North
Platte about the 27th, or 28th. I have
rebuilt my car and spent a Jot of mon
ey in getting it in first class shape."
Ira Vale under date of June 7 writes
from Indianapolis: "I am expecting
my racing car to arrive horo by ex
press tomorrow and as soon as it is
overhauled at the Dusenburg factory I
will ship it to North Platto. However
it is very possible that I will not bo
able to got it there before the 30th
of Juno. as there is a great aoal of
work to be dono on it. I trust that
some arrangements can be made for
me to get on the track for at least
a few laps. (This was mado in reply
to a notice that tho track would bo
closed for repairs after Junef30. )
