Florida. He has been a contender in mosl of the s;reat motor events in the past four or five years and litis always figured more or less prominently. The entry of the Cutting car. With Bttrman named as driver, means thai ,ie will devote the next two months n his time to preparing the car and testing it out over the motor speedway course. He probably wilT do very little exhibition driving or mile tracli racing in the meantime.

Goetc is one of the most skilled mechanicians in the country and Bmnian looks to him to aid materially in the success of his next appearance in a big race. The car which Burman will drive is a 1012 special model, weighing L::uti pounds, which is 300 pounds above the minimum weight allowed in the race.

The motor is specially built to come just within the six hundred cubic Inch limit set upon the contest by the Speedway management. The other entries to the race are two Stutz cars, to be driven bv Gil Andetson and I.en Zengle, with Billy Knipper as relief; two Nationals with Don Herr.

In 1911 he finished second hi at the Speedway - race won Hie Vanderbilt cup race at Savannah and might have known what it is to be a two time winner in one race meeting had it not been that an unfortunate accident put him out of the Grand Prise race when he was righl in Hie lead at the last lap. The smiling pilot has made enough money so that he has been able to go in after the $50,000 purse at the Speedway in a car owned by himself and his choice of a Knox seems to be partially the result of the performance of thai car in t he last Speedway grind. In ihat race Fred Belcher drove the Knox entry and finished ninth, after nursing his car along at moderate speed for more than half the race. The dashing finish which this one of the notable feacar mrde tures of the long event and records show thai the Knox made the fastest lap in the race. Mulford believes that he can put the famous motor through without trouble and outdrive his record of last year when be was but a minute and a half behind the winning Marmoa. The entry of the Knox makes the held up to date twelve cars, nearly all of which have been prominent in pas. motor car events. The other entries to Hie race are two Nationals, driven by Wilcox. Herr and Biers; two Stuiz cars driven bj Anderson.

This Is by far the largest field that ever has been entered for any event more than three months ahead. The list of tentative entries brings the number of starters up to thirty, which is the iimit placed by the Speedway management. The foreign cars entered are all owned privately while main of the American cars are to he entered by individuals rather than by the manufacturers. This seems to Indicate that motor car racing is becoming more aud more of a sporting proposition pure and simple and the phase is being overshadowed. Reservations of seats for the race and of rooms in the Indianapolis hotels have been made in vast numbers, and indications at present are that a greater crowd than the 90,000 persons which witnessed the last race will be on hand this year. The Speedway has established a room bureau and is booking a large number of rooms in private residences bo that all visitors may be accommodated even it the hotels are filled. the 500-mi- le it I SOWING MACHINES abandoned motor car contests.
