AMONG QUALIFIERS,
Last Year7s Victor Leads Field
in Preliminary Trials
at Indianapolis.
When the roar of the motors
marks the start of the Indianapolis
Memorial Day classic and the forty,
qualifiers hit the bricks of the
speedway for the 500-mile grind,
Billy Arnold, last year's champion,
will be a favorite to repeat. With
but two days for the remaining en-
tries to qualify, Arnold and his last
year's car have set the pace in the
preliminary grind at 116.08 miles
per hour, This mark is about three
miles per hour better than his qual-
ifying time last year.
Billy's first attempt on Saturday
was attended by misfortune. He
then set a pace of 113.848, at the
time the fastest rate of the quali-
hers, but the attempt was dis-
allowed by the officials because of
a dragging brake rod which was"
not fastened by the assembling me-
chanica. The rules state that a car
must be completely assembled to
qualify properly. Arnold's spectacu-
lar Saturday attempt, finished after
dusk, was therefore in vain.
Out of the field of forty quali-
fiers, sixteen places remain to be
filled, with but two days in which
to run the ten-mile speed test.' The
first row in the start of the race
next Saturday will include Snow-
berger (at the pole), Cummings,
and Bost. Those drivers who quali-
fied Monday are: Gleason, Quinn,
Farmer, Shafer, and Boling.
Cantlon, prominent Detroit driv-
er, has not yet qualified because of
trouble in the front axle of his car.
Louis Meyer, former A m e r i ca n
champion, and the veteran De Pal-
ma are among' those expected to
qualify in the remaining sixteen.
One of the features of the con-
test will be the first oil-burning
motor ever built for an automobile
race. This car, entered by the Cum-
mins Diesel Corporation of Colum-
bus, Indiana, qualified Saturday
with a speed of 96.871 m.p.h.
The permanent retirement of
Peter De Paola from racing was
-announced S a t u r d a y, after the

HIG LEAGUE STANDINGS
AMERICAI LEAGUE

RUTH, SIMMONS, CO
REMAIN AMONG
These Three Stars Take Places
at Top Early in Season.
Every spring there are a group
of baseball players that burst forth 1
in all their glory during the firstI
few weeks of the campaign to slug
their way into the selected list of
first five batters in the big leagues.
In nine cases out of ten, no more
than one- of these same five menI
will be in the same list at the end
of the season.
Some players are just naturalt
spring hitters, and in the summer
when the hot weather sets in their
work falls off to a great degree.
Some are rookies, who bat far above
their heads when they first face
the hurling of big league pitchers
arid fall down later when their
weaknesses are discovered. Yet,
this year in the American League,
even at this compartively early '
date, there are three batters among
the first- five who may be expected
to still be among them when the
last man has been retired next
September. .
simmions Stands h, "Bucket."
Al Simmons, leadifig batsman of
the league. at present and is cham---
pionship hitter last year, is one
of the greatest natural hitters ever
discovered, in spite of the fact that
he bats in an unorthodox manner.
He is guiilty of the crime of putting
his "foot inthe bucket" when he
swings at the ball, or in other
words, of drawing his left foot
when the ballcomes towards him.
This is the great fault that most
managers try to correct inhnew
recruits just coming up to the big
time, but it has won everlasting
batting renown for Simmons.
Babe Ruth stands in number two
position among the leading bats-
men. Ruth has always been known
for his -home run slugging ability,
but all too few fans fail to realize
that he is a great hitter as well.
Ruth, barring injuries, should still
be- among the elite of the batting
world when the end of the season
comes around.
Cochrane Puts Pep in Macks.
Gordon "Mickey" Cochrane, pep-
pery catcher of the Philadelphia
Athletics is the third member of
the leaders who should still be
among the first five when the sea-
son draws to a close. Not only a
1 great catcher, but a great batter
as well, Cochrane is the spark plug
that has driven the world's cham-
pions to two straight titles. He is

CHRANE SHOULD
FIRST FIVE HITTERS
standing in fourth place.
The other two men in the lead-
ing five probably will not stick, al-
though both of them are hard hit-
ters and have an outside chance
providing they are in for a success-
ful season. Bob Fothergill, out-,
fielder with the Chicago White Sox,
has always been a hard hitter, and
is know standing third among the
league leaders. Fothergill, how-
ever, is not the best fielder in the
world, and has always had a hard
task holding a regular job in the
past.
Number five is Earl Averill, star
center fielder of the Cleveland In-
dians. Averill is a steady player,
and a naturally hard hitter, who
may or may not continue in the
fast pace he has set for himself. In
his two years of big league ball
he has always shown marked hit-
ting ability, but never before has
he been clouting the ball at such
a clip as he has shown this season.
Gabby Street Orders
Daily Batting Drills
ST. LOUIS, May 26.- (P)-In an
effort to improve the Cardinals'
attack, Manager Gabby Street has
ordered daily morning batting drill,
effective today. He said the batting
practice would continue "until fur-
ther notice." The team's batting
average toffy was .260.
Although the Cards. returned from
their first long trip into.r the en-
emy's country with a record of sev-
en victories and five defeats and
still holding first place, Street was
disappointed with the hitting.

ST. LOUIS, May 26.-(IP)-The
rumors of a possible deal between
the Cardinals and Cubs, involv-

official denial today of Sam
