TWO XEW RECORDS; TWO DEAD
Sensational Events Hark Opening of
Indianapolis Auto Races.
XK0X CAB BTOS INTO FENCE
DrlTer and Attendant Almost In-
atantlr Killed New Marks
for One and Ten
INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 19,-Two lives
were lost at the opening of the new In
dianapolis motor speedway today. Wll'.iam
A. Bourque, driver of the Knox car In the
250-mlla race, and Harry Holeomb, hi
mechanician, were killed by crashing Into
Two records were broken. Barney Old
field, driving a high-power Hertz, coveted
a mile in 0:41 1-10, breaking De Palma'r
mark of 0:61, and Loula Chevrolet, In a
Bulck, made ten miles In S:5S 4-10. cutting
Oldfleld's time of :11 Both of these are
new American track marks.
Robert Burman won the 2M-mlle race, the
feature of the day. It mas this contest that
cost Bourque and Holeomb their lives. The
winner's time was 4:3:W 4-10slow because
of the many accidents that marred the
race. The Stoddard Dayton (Clements) was
second In 4:4:01 8-10 and the National
(Men) finished third In 4:52:39 7-10. Another
National was the only other cur of ten
starters to finish.
Changes Ordered la Track.
The death of the two men caused the
American Automobile association to issux
an ultimatum to the owners of the track
that certain changes must be made by to
morrow or sanction for the remaining
events will be withdrawn. The Amerlvan
Automobile association demands that th
track be freed from Its many dangerous
ruts and that every inch of It be thoroughly
oiled and tarred. Today only a short por
tion In front of the grandstand was oiled
and the dust on the other parts Is blamed
for the collapse of two drivers in the long
race Louis Chevrolet and Fred Ellis whu
were blinded by the dense white mist that
covered the major portion of the track.
The first day ot the races at the big
track had bid fair to be an unqualified
success when a pall was cast over the
crowd of 12,000 spectators by the sudden
death of Bourque and Holeomb.
How Men Were Killed.'
The Knox car was In' second place, with
Burman In his Bulck. leading and had
covered nearly 150 miles when the crash
came while coming down the head stretch,
the car suddenly swerved and tore Into
the fence at the left of the track, turning
completely over and pinning its two oc
cupants beneath it. Both men were alive
ahen taken from under the wreck, but
Bourque died In the ambulance on the
way to the emergency hoHpital. Holeomb
died a few minutes after he arrived at
According to the story told by private
Frank Brandor, company H., second regi
ment, Indiana National guard, who was
nearest to the scene of the accident and
had a narrow escape from Injury, some
thing caused both men to suddenly turn
and look behind. As they did so. the
steering wheel slipped from Bourse's
hands and he threw his arms helplessly In
the air. Then came the crash.
One of the rear wheels was found a few
hundred feet from the scene of the acci
dent and this led to the advancement of
the theory that the axle nuts on It had
not been property tightened when the
machine had taken on a new tire shortljr
before. The men probably felt that wheel
slipping off and after they lnoked behfnd
they realised their helplessness to prevent
an accident. . .
Identity of Victims.
Bourque was 26 years aid and lived at
Springfield, Mass. He had been In the
employ of the Knox company for 'seven
years and had been a racing driver since
1907. He finished second In the recent Cobe
trophy race at Crown Point, Ind., and
shortly before he had been seriously In
jured when his car overturned Itv a hill
climbing contest near Worcester, Mass. In
Holeomb was 12 years old and . lived
at Grandvllle, Mass. He had been with
the Knox company for two years and Was
considered one of the best mechanicians
in the racing business. Both i.'n were un
married. Albert Denlson, the racing partner of
Bourque, collapsed after the accident and
the services of a physician were required.
The sight of the two men laying dead
was too much for the friend of both, who
had been called upon so often to face
death In the same manner.
Louis' Chevrolet, French driver of the
Bulck team, was led into the hospital
almost blinded with the tar and dust from
the track shortly after the two- men had
died. The Frenchman, who had been lead
ing during the early part of the long raoe,
was forced to give up. He gaaed fer a mo
ment upon the bodies of his two former
rivals of the track, then moved by emotion
retired to a chair.
As the result of the two deaths the Knox
company has withdrawn all Its entries for
the next two days and it is said.lt will
probably never again enter its cars In a
race. - .
Mir Accidents In Race.
The 250-mile race teemed with dramatlo
Incidents and disappoint ineni. The follow
ing cars started In the contest:
Knox (Bourque), National (Klncald)
National (Merr), S;oddaid-Day ton (Miller),
Bulck (Burmun), Bulck (Strang), Buick
(Chevrolet), Jackson (Kills) and Stoddgid
Strang was the first to come to grief, as
his car caught fire before he iiad covered
on lap. He was delayed some time by this
and the officials at first refused to allow
him to continue, as he and his mechanician
had been aided by the track volunteer fire
company In extinguishing the blaze. The
rules of the contest forbid any one but the
two men riding in the car to make repairs
or touch the cars in any way. Alter a long
discussion Strang was allowed to continue
but the remainder of the field had then
gained about fifteen miles on him. The
fire had so injured his machine that he
dropped out after making a brief effort to
regain his lost ground.
Chevrolet dashed into the lead at the
start and held i( for flfiy-(u laps, or more
than half the race, with the brief excep
tion of the fifteenth and sixteenth lap,
when -he relinquished 'It lo his team mate,
Burman, the winner. When he was bl.ndud
by dust he waa led from the track. Miller,
in a Stoddard-Dayton, also gave up his
losing race about this time.
Usruias Aualu iu Lead.
After Chevrolet's withdrawal, Burman
again went Into the had, with Bourque
second and Kuieaid, In a National, third.
This order cuuiijiued until the fatal acci
dent to the Knox. Kincuid then moved
Into second place and Kills, in a, Jackson,
loomed up as a contender in third place.
Burman had until tltu eighty-second lap,
or about UUi miles had been covcijed. Con
tinual trouble with tires and ignition caused
him to lose his once commanding lead and
drop back to sec nil, while Kills, who had
pwsed Klncald soiua distance back, took
the lead, with Burman second and Clem
ents, in a Sioddard-Dyton, third. Then the
Jackson began to encounter Its string of
mishaps that finally put it out of the race.
A. J. House, the mechanician, was taken
111 and ford to leave the car and go tu
the hospital. Lee Lynch, another driver of
the Jackson ream, took his place. Kills'
eyes began to fill up with the dust and oil,
but he remained gamely at the wheel. Fin
ally his cr encountered Ignition troubles
after he had, once stopped to have sortie
effort made to relieve his eyes. The failure
of his car to work after this stop caused
him to lose heart and finally he fell from
his seat In a dead faint and was carried
to the hospital. Lynch was not able to get
the car going again and was forced to
stand by Idle and watch" his rivals snatch
his chances of victory.
With the Jackson out of commission Bur
man wSs able to regain his lead, with
Clements second and Klncald ' third. This
order continued until the finish.
Ten-Mile Itecord Broken.
It was In the second event a ten-mile
rsce for stripped chassis,, that the first
record was broken. Chevrolet won easily
and apparently had little dliitculty in cut
ting Oldfleld's record from S.12H to
This race was a clean sweep for the Bu
Icks, as Strang finished second and Bur
Oldfleld established his mile record on
the long home stretch of the Immense el
lipse, (letting gway to a flying start his
big car fairly tore up the track until It
passed over the tape that marked the fin
ish. When his time was announced, 0:43.1,
he was greeted with a mighty cheer, as he
had clipped nearly 'eight seconds off Ralph
De Palma's former, record of 0:51, made In
a Flat on September k, UK.
The closest rareof the day came In the
five 'mile stripped . cansla event, Won ' by
Burman In a Bulck after a fierce struggle
with Bourque. The two mighty cars tore
around the track with wheels almost
touching throughout the five miles. The
scant margin of . nine-tenths of a second
separated Bourque from victory In the last
race he ever finished.

patents. The Wrights demand that the in
fringing' machine be turned over to them
for destruction and in addition .ask that
the court assess damages for three fold the
amount of whatever losses they are fpijnd
to have suffered by. reason of the Infringe
ment and the public exhibition or rental
of the Infringing machine. A hearing In
the suit' will probably be hold early In
Aeronautic experts here tonight gener
ally viewed the suit as in the nature of -a
test case, brought to determine legally
whether the Wrights patents cover ef
fectually all aeroplane constructed along
similar lines. .Regarded In this light It is
pointed out, the suit Is. likely to have .a
most. Important bearing on the. development
of aerial navigation. The Herrlng-Cur-tlss
machine Is at present the only Amer
ican rival of Importance In the commercial
field, but practically all the experimental
heavier than air machines which have
met with any degree of success in thla
country have been constructed along lines,
whioh apparently, the Wrights regard as
pre-empted by their patents.
In the bill of complaint filed today the
Wrights set forth that their claims to
the sole rights In. heavier than air flying
machines of this type "have been recog
nized by the United States government,
which has purchased some of the mach
ines; while the sovereigns of other coun
tries have given similar acknowledge
ment." . ..
