Long Island Motor Parkway, Oct. 1.—With dead and injur
ed marking nearly every mile of the course, the sixth Vanderbilt
cup race was won today by Harry Grant, driving a 120-horse-
Joe Dawson, during a Marion, finished 25 seconds after
Grant and one minute and six seconds ahead of John Aitken in a

new American record.
The race was marked by fatalities second only to the Paris-
Madrid race. Harold Stone, of Los Angeles, driver of a Colum
bia, was probably fatally hurt soon after the race started, and
his mechanician, Mathew Bacon, killed. Charles Miller, me
chanician for the Marquette Buick, driven by Louis Chevrolet,
was killed in a collision with a touring car on the road. Ferdi
nand D. Zubia, of New York, manager of the Pope-Hartford
Company,was killed in a smash-up while on his way to the race.
Henry Haggerdorn, a clerk employed by a local automobile
firm, who was watching the race, was killed by Joe Dawson s
The number of accidents short of fatalities ran into scores.
From a sporting point the race was a thriller, and will go
down into the annals as the most hotly contested race ever held
on the open roads. Judged by its toll in killed and maimed,
however, the race was a revolting spectacle, and is severely ar
raigned for the manner in which it was conducted.
