DAYTONA BEACH". Fla., Feb.
5 (AP) Captain Malcolm Camp
bell, 48 year old .British racing
car driver, today established a
new world's automobile speed rec
ord of 245.733 miles an hour on
the sands of the natural beach
Roaring twice over the course
in his huge 1,450 horsepower
Bluebird machine, he exceeded
the previous record by 14.371
miles an hour and became the
first man in the world ever to at
tain a ground speed of four miles
a minute or more.
The previous record was 231
miles an hour, established here
in 1929 by the late Sir Henry Se
grave, also of England, who later
was killed in a motorboat acci
dent at Lake Windermere.
Campbell was clocked at 246.
575 miles an hour on his first run
southward over the course and his
second trial at 244.897 his ave
rage speed for the kilometer
which is approximately 5-8 of a
mile was 248.086. The kilometer
course was laid out within the
measured mile. l
Despite the fact the! beach was
not in perfect condition, the giant
racing car held to the sand and at
no time showed tendency of get
ting off Its course. ;j
After completing both rans,
Campbell expressed disappoint
ment that he had not been able to
set a higher record. j
"I am not satisfied with 'the
record," he said, after he had
torn himself away from a huge
crowd of spectators and saclngj of
ficials who swarmed Out on to the
beach to congratulate him.
"The car has lots more speed in
it and 1 am a bit disappointed
mat conditions prevented
from going faster."

CHICAGO. One of the most
farorable elements in public util
ity operation at the present time
ts the gradual Increase occurring
in; household consumption of both
gas and electricity, in the, opinion
of Albert E. Pelrce. president of
the Central Public Service corporation.;
j In discussing this development
Mr. Pelrce pointed out that when
the consumption of gas and elec
tricity by Industrial plants declin
ed last year practically all public
utility companies were forced to
redouble their efforts to encour
age household usage.
! "Through greater sale of addi
tional appliances and the wider in
troduction of natural gas at a low
er cost, it became apparent before
the end of 1930 that. Increased
household usage of gas and elec
tricity had gone far to offset de
clining industrial consumption,"
"This trend is continuing and I
believe that it will have a pro
found influence on utility opera
tions in 1931'.-
