TO RICE IT
INDIANAPOLIS Fob. 5. Threo
European nations will bo represented
In tho ninth annual COO mllo Inter-
natlonal-sweepatnkos race, on tho In'
dlanapolls motor speedway, May 30
Fronch, Drltlsh and Italian cars will
compcto for tho 50,000 purso and
an oqua'l amount of accessory nwnrds.
Franco has boon rcprosonted In
evory race, by foreign drivers and
cars from across tho wator, slnco
1913, oxcept tho war years of 1316
and 191C. England has not Btartod a
car In tho races slnco tho war, and
Itnly has been absent from tho Hoos
lor classic slnco tho fleet of Isottas
racod In 1913.
Much Interest of tho fans it 111 bo
centered In tho Italian delegation.
According to Information rccolTod
hore from V. F. Dradloy, tho Euro
pean roprosentntlvo of tho speedway,
tho Flat Is finally going to send over
a team of threo cars. Louis Wagner,
who won tho first American grand
prlto at Savannah In 1908, Is ex
pected to captain tho team, although
Flat, has not announced Its drlvors or
formally entered. A decade ago the
Italian car was moro foarcd than any
racing outfit, rivalling tho Gorman
Dcm for supremacy In Araorlca. Its
last appcaranco In tho local classic
was In 1912, when Teddy Tctilaff
finished second to Joo Dawson's Na
tional. Seven French Entries.
Tho trl-color will flutter from the
helmots ot at least soTcn drivers pil
oting tbrco Peugcots and four Bal
lots. The Pougeot Is said to havo
omo now 183, Inch cars with Jules
Ooux as team captain. Whllo no over
tures havo beon mado to Howard WJI
coz, tho Indianapolis boy who won
with this make In 1919, It Is expect
ed that he will havo one of tho'trlo.
The Ballot "elght-ln-llno" team will
number four. It has been announced
that Ralph DoPalma and Jean Chaa
sagn will havo two of these cars,
but tho other membors havo not beon
Tho Drltlsh entry will be tho Sun
beam, the factory which has tried
since 1913 to win the GOO mllo raco.
Darto Reata, 191C Indianapolis win-
( nor and American champion, and
Andxo Dolllot will drlvo two ot tho
threo now Suuuoams designed uy
Louis Contalon. It Is possible, that tho
third Sunboam may fall to Hono
Thomas, tho 1914 winner. If It doos
not It will bo bocaitBo Franco will
havo nnothor toam In tho raco, with
Thomas nt the holm.
Oror 18 In Raco
It is nlso reported on tho other
sldo that Jean Porporato has beon
busy this winter putting tho powor
plants ot thovOrogolros, which woro
entered last year, In now and llghtor
classes and that tho Italian wilt ho
back battling for tho winner's prUo
on Memorial day.
With a certain flold ot 13 cars and
tho probability ot not loss than W,
tho Kuroponns aro cortnlnly out to
win tho ninth raco.
How to Break
Ry Mlko Do Clcco
Onco upon n morning dreary, whllo I
mdtorod, weak nnd weary,
Through gnrago and out of door,
Suddenly thoro camo n tapping was
It that old piston slapplngT
Slapping as it did boforo?
Was It carbon, thickly crusted T Wns
a valvo stem nearly busted?
Must I go and spond somo moro?
A very dcuco ot n fix to bo in so
early in tho morning, with apologies
to Poo, but many a motorist Is so
fixed. How Is ho going to find out
what tho nolso 1st Can ho toll n
piston slap or n spark knock from
ordinary palpitation ot tho heart?
It may bo In tho mnln bearing or It
may bo n tin can slung on behind his
gas tank. Hero aro somo suggestions
for locating tho oluslvo knock or tap:
do up a steep lncllno with the
spark advanced half way, and tho
allmont Is a connoctlng rod knock It
It Increases In strength, or, by work
ing tho spark lover back and forth
ono can dlagnoso tho trouble as a
spark or carbon knock. Tho main
bearing, wrist pin nnd piston, slap
knocks can bo beard whon thoro Is
no strain on tho motor, simply by
traveling at a fast paco or by racing
tho motor when standing still.
Tho above will glvo tho koy to lo
cating troublo In tho most vital parts
ot tho car, and tho slightest delay
In attondlng'to the trouble will cause
'other parts to knock In sympathy.
You don't wnnt your motor to bo a
knocker; koep It In good condition
and it will bo a booster.
In case a knock of any kind devel
ops, try nnd find out whoro It Is, nnd
thon satisfy yoursolf by having tho
suspoctod part lookod nt. It you havo
diagnosed tho caso right, roplaco tho
part co tho troublo will not spread.
You may tnko n flyor nt It yourBolf,
but It you do, Jack up tho car bo you
enn work oaslly, nnd put blocks umlor
tho nxlos so tho weight of tho car
will not bo accidentally thrown from
tho Jnck nnd on top ot your cheat.
Thoro nro mon who can lot cars drop
on tholr chests nnd got away with It,
but thoy nro fow nnd far between.
It you nro going to tacklo tho Job
of soolng who has boon knocking
nt tho door ot your pockotbook thru
your engine, remove tho dust or
splash pan, If thoro Is ono, drain tho
oil through tho plug on .tho bottom
of tho motor, and thon looson tho
bolts nnd nuts on tho crnnk enso. Ho
foro all tho bolts and nuts nro ro
moved plnco a Jnck umlor tho crnnk
caso to hold It up, It you think It Is
moro than your breakfast can stand,
nnd finish up tho Job. Disconnect tho
nil pipes, If thoro nro nny, and tho
crnnk caso Is ready to como off.
How To Toll Ry Hound
Attor tho crnnk caso has boon dis
connected from tho motor, ono can
get nt tho bearings. Tap thorn with n
hammor, nnd If nny ot them sound
dull, or dolotul, llkotho famous volco
from tho tomb, It's n cinch they're In
bad order, for thoso In good condi
tion will glvo oft a solid spund. It
you'vo ovor sounded a watormollon to
find out whether or not It Is ripe,
you can oaslly tost a bearing for Its
good hoalth. It tho wrist pins nro
worn, tho cylinder head must como
oft, provided, ot courso, you nro not
ablo to get thorn out from tho bot
tom. Ho suro tho bearings nro right
boforo storting to tost any othor part.
Do tho work ot Investigation thor
oughly. To get nt tho timing goars, tho ra
diator must bo romovod from tho
car. Thus ono can got nt tho bolts
that hold tho timing goar caso. As
soon as this Is off, ono can got at
tho gears, and can havo somo moro
fun testing. Pretty soon, by tlolng
your own testing for a while, you
will get bo you nro ablo to toll when
thoro Is really anything tho mattor
with tho motor, or whethor it's Just
a caso of temper.
