Smiling Ralph Mulford yesterday broke the world's speedway record for cars of speedway class on the Omaha oval by turning a lap in forty and two-fifths seconds, a rate of 111.9 miles per hour. The former record, held by Dario Resta, was made at Chicago. Bv establishins the record Mulford beat Dario Resta's Omaha mark of forty-one flat, made last Sunday, and crowded Kesta out ot the pole posi tion n the start of the ISO-mile clas sic Saturdav. Smiline Ralph certainly had "the old lead in he foot" yesterday. He pushed the old pedal down until it bent under the strain and the big Peugeot certainly did sail around the saucer. Without realizing the speed he was making Ralph made two loops of the track at forty and two-fifths. Billy Chandler wig-wagged frantic signals that he was burning the wood, but neither Mulford nor Jimmy Stakes, his mechanician, caught them, and Ralph pulled up, not believing he was doing better than lorty-one. Starts Out Again. When he came in Chandler broke the glorious news and Mulford started out again. This time he gave Wagner the signal and he was officially timed for a qualifying lap at lorty ana iwo fifths. MnlfnrH is now sure of the Dole po sition. Resta has two more -''Is if he cares to make them, but it is not believed he will be able to eclipse the Mu ford record. Resta, however. is practically certain of second posi tion unless ue raima snouia snow some unusual speed today and beat him out. Thus Mulford and Resta will pace the field in the first line the day of thp rare. Ralph De Palma clinched third po sition yesterday by doing a lap in ior-tv-two and one-fifth. 107 miles an hour. This is over a second better than he did Wednesday, when he hit 104 miles an hour. , Rick Cuts Time. F.rldie Rickenbacher cut two-fifths of a second off his first mark yester day by making a lap in torty-tnree and three-fifths, 103 miles aiyhour. Eddie and Dave Lewis are now dead WlreH for fourth nosition. Eddie can take one more trial today and Lewis 'Baby Pete Henderson and Wilbur D Alene tied tor sixtn position ai me slatt with marks of forty-four and one-fifth, 102 miles an hour, yester day. Both have two more chances to lower these records. " Jack Gable, Billy Muller, Art Klein and Ira Vail were others to qualify yesterday. All of them, however, have two more chances and expect to do better today. - . , Fifteen Qualify. A total of fifteen cars have now qualified for the race Saturday. The eliminations will continue today when Hughie Hughes, Tommy Milton, Aldo Franchi and Jules Devigne will be among the prominent drivers to take thcfr first trials and several of those who have already qualified will at tempt to set up better marks. In addition this afternoon Ralph Mulford will attempt to lower the five-mile record set up Sunday by Dario Resta. Rural Carrier at Benedict Killed lOrK, ilCU., JUlJ tuu... .... - grain.)

All of these drivers pilot cars which consistently attain a speed of over 100 miles an hour, so some sensational work is anticipated. Ralph Mulford will today attempt to lower the five-mile record estab lished by Dario Resta. Sunday Resta made the five miles in 2:44:82, a clip of 109.4 miles per hour. Mulford be lieves he can clip a second off this record. develoed a bunch of literary talent. s now scriDDiing jingles. He calls 'em nneme H.
