THE MYSTERY CAR
ENTERS ALTOONA RACES.
Harry Miller’s New Front Wheel
Drive Racing Car to Show for
First Time in International
The mysterious front-wheel drive
racing car whose every detail has |
i ince its con- !
heen cloaked in secrecy Sm | man of Philadelphia, Is out for Alfred
struction, several months ago at Los
Angeles by Harry Miller, celebrated
American engineer, is to compete In
the international speed sweepstakes
at the Altoona speedway on Satur-
day, August 18.
Ralph Hepburn, former world mo-
torcycle champion who has won re-
nown in the past three years as 2a
pilot of racing automobiles, was
named by Miller as the driver for
the unique car, said by racing au-
thorities to be one of the fastest ever
Rumors of the special car being
built by Miller were heard last spring
shortly after the late Frank Lock-
hart began his preparations at Day-
tona Beach to set a new world
straight-away record,” and while no
known tests were held on any course,
experts declare the car would sur-
pass the phenomenal mark set by
Lockhart a year ago at Muroc Lake
of 171 miles an hour.
Lockhart’s car and this new devel-
opment of Miller's genius are both
of only 91 cubic inch piston dis-
placement, which is about half the
power space in a Ford moter. Lock-
hart’s was of the conventional rear-
wheel drive design.
Engineers already gathered here all
over the country for the August 18
classic say that the rumored intense
speed of Miller's new car must be
due to the huge supercharger, which
can be seen projecting above the
gleaming motor, and the intricate
air cooling device which permits mo-
tor speeds in excess of 8000 revolu-
tions a minute.
The new car is expected to make
its first appearance on the giant board
bowl here within the next two weeks.
Hepburn stated he was anxious to be
gin practicing with his mount just
as soon as the army of workmen has
completed the elaborate program of
replacements in the racing deck, be-
ing made to lessen the hazards fac-
ing the drivers in their bitter contest
on August 18.
The advance crews of mechanicians
and other attaches have already start-
ed flowing into ATtoona, getting their
special garages ready for the racing
cars, which will begin to arrive in a
Hunters Protest Open Doe Season.
Vigorous protests against what they
termed would be a “wanton slaugh-
ter” if the state game commission’s
ruling creating a State-wide season
for doe deer this year is not re-
voked, were entered against the rul-
ing at an open hearing today by
sportsmen and hunting organizations
from various parts of Pennsylvania.
Not one person in the crowded
hearing room spoke in favor of the
open doe season. The hearing was
called by the commission after a num-
ber of written protests had been re-
Arguments against the ruling be-
came so heated at one point that F.
L. Haight, Nanticoke, representing
the United Sportsmen of Pennsyl-
vania, exclaimed: “The hunters in my
section of the State are going to pe-
tition Governor Fisher to remove you
commissioners from office unless you
change your attitude toward deer.”
Postponement of the scheduled
opening of the rabbit season on Oc-
tober 15 to November 1, earlier open-
ing of ‘the woodchuck season, and
closing of the grouse season for two
years, was also requested of the
Most of the protestants appealed to
the commision to restore the old sea-
son for hunting bucks, which has
been closed this year, as well as for
smaller game. Representatives of the
Izaak Walton league asked that the
State-wide season for does be re-
placed with a ruling permitting the
shooting of does only in counties and
sections of the State where their ov-
er abundance has caused damage to
farm crops and property.
May Kill One Doe Deer.
Harrisburg.—Each member of a
hunting party will be allowed to shoot
one doe deer, a summary of the game
laws made by the Board of Game
Commissioners today disclosed. The
number of bucks allowed to each par-
ty regardless of its size, always has
been limited to six.
Decision to open the State to the
shooting of does and prohibit the kill-
ing of bucks was made at the May
meeting of the board. At that time
no announcement was made regarding
the number limit for hunting parties.
Any antlerless deer weighing more
than 50 pounds may be shot from De-
cember 1 to 15.
Party limits for bear remain at
four and elk, one. In each case as in
that of deer, a hunter is not permit-
ted to shoot more than one. First
year bear and elk except those hav-
ing at least four points to each antler
Because of the drastic changes in
the regulations governing the shoot-
ing of small game the board intends
to make every effort to acquaint each
individual hunter with the various
schedules which will be permitted.
Each applicant for a hunter’s license
will be given a copy of the new code
and an educational campaign carried
on through organizations of sports-
Seasons for all small game have
been lengthened but killing will be
permitted only on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday of each week.
The entire State will be closed to
the shooting of blackbirds, Hungarian
partridges, and reel birds.
__ DECLARES FOR SMITH.

Association and Vice Presi-

that civil and religious liberty is a
Protestant tenet and that Protestant-
ism is responsible for rearing that
standard and must therefore stand by
it through thick and thin, Dr. Hency
A. Bomberger, a Presbyterian clergy-
Emanuel Smith for President of the
United States, believing Al Smith to
be a real “democrat,” with a small
“d,” and not the partisan type, with
The hour has struck, he maintains,
for a decided stand by democrats
against plutocrats. Many of the most
consistent democrats have been voting
the Republican ticket, he says, for
years and his own case is an illustra-
When the plutocratic element in the
Republican party became high-handed
and ruled Theodore Roosevelt dele-
gates out of the convention in 1912,
Dr. Bomberger became a “Bull Moose,”
while in 1916 his anti-plutocracy virus
landed him into the camp of Woodrow
Wilson. He is one of those fundamen-
tal Jeffersonians to whom Protestant-
ism and democracy mean the same
thing historically. .
“Governor Smith is my man be-
cause I am a Protestant, believe in
civil and religious liberty and that
he has as good a right to be Presi-
dent of the United States as I have
—and a far better chance,” he said.
“I am out for Alfred E. Smith be-
cause he is human, the human ele-
ment having been suspiciously absent
in Washington in recent years.
“I am for Alfred E. Smith be-
cause he is big in mind and heart and
because the small-minded person has
become to me a deep-seated offense.
“I am for Governor Smith because
of his irreproachable and almost un-
approachable official record. He is
my open choice because he is a dem-
ocrat, not a plutocrat; because he is
at this time the one outstanding
champion of the people against che
greedy encroachments of ‘the invis-
ible government’—the powers that
prey upon them and scorn all the
claims of human justice. =
“I like him and will work for him
because he is not of the same kind
or class with the historic Pharisee,
the ever present and most dangerous
enemy of human society.

ficance in the current campaign. And

Dr. Bomberger was formerly super-
intendent of the Philadelphia County
Sunday School Association and secre-
tary of the Teachers’ Training De-
partment of the Pennsylvania State
Sunday School Agsaciation,.which de-
partment he organized as it emerged
from the Pennsylvania Sabbath
School Association, of which the late
John Wanamaker was president.
He then became vice president of
Temple University, which at that time
was called Temple College. Prior to
that he had organized the Bethany
Tabernacle Reformed church, at
Twentieth and Dauphin streets. He
was at one time pastor of the Presby-
terian church of the Covenant of
Lower Merion, at Bala-Cynwyd. He
is the father of the Neighborhood
Club of that section, which has 800
At one time he was the only doc-
tor of divinity to hold membership in
the American Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy, Herbert Hoover being
then the president of the institute.
Last year he was director of the
publicity department of the Presby-
terian Board of Church Education.
His degree of D. D. was an honor be-
stowed by the late Russell H. Con-
In his engineering status he served
as metallurgist for Harold Pitcairn
in developing Pitcairn Aviation.
His inclination for “Al” Smith, he
says, is derived from a spirit of Prot-
estantism that draws deeply upon the
wells sunk in human consciousness by
John Milton and Oliver Cromwell, and
he hates the cavalierly attitude of
those who are satisfied to have the
United States Government remain in
the keeping of the overly rich.

Stenotypy Now Being Taught at
Wilkes-Barre Business College.
Stenotypy, the machine way of
shorthand, is being taught at Wilkes-
Barré Business College after carefuly .
investigation of merits claimed for the
system. Out of a total of 1200 pri-
vate commercial schools in this coun-
try, 151 have received franchises
from LaSalle Extension University to
teach the course. Each school was
visited by a representative of the un-
iversity and approval given methods
and standards before the franchises
The system is written on the sten-
otype, instead of with pencil and pap-
er. The keyboard of this little ma-
chine is so arranged that 100 of the
commonest words in the English
language may be written with one
stroke each. In typewriting, each
letter in the word requires one stroke;
whereas, in stenotypy each word of
one syllable requires but one stroke.
The increase in speed will be appre-
ciated when it is understood that it
requires but one-eighth as many
strokes on the stenotypy as it does
to write the same number of words on
The stenotype will take the place
of shorthand in positions where a
higher rate of speed is required, and
a greater amount of work is to be
turned out in a given time, such as
court reporting, conference reporting
and in large offices.
In taking dictation in stenotype,
plain letters are printed on a narrow
strip of paper automatically fod
through the machine, instead of sym-
bols representing sounds, as is done
in writing shorthand. This makes pos-
ible the reading of any stenotypist’s
notes by any other stenotypist, which
means that one operator may take dic-
tation enough to keep several twpists
busy if necessity should arise. Also,
in case of illness, the notes may be
transcribed by a fellow stenotypist
without loss of time.
Wilkes-Barre Business College prin-
cipals are interested in this new de-
partment because of success of grad-
uate stenotypists now filling respon-
ible positions, and confidence in fu-
ture of the machine.
Blackbird Season Closed.
In an effort to protect game of all
kinds, the Board of Game Commis-
sioners has decided to close the entire
State to shooting of blackbirds during
1928. Formerly the season extended
from August 1 to November 30.
Decision to stop shooting of black-
birds resulted from the many game
law violations by hunters who claim-
ed they were seeking that bird. Rec-
ords in the office of the commission
show that at least 1 per cent. of the
annual game law violations were com-
mitted by hunters who claimed to be
As small birds of all kinds are kill-
ed for food in a number of foreign
countries, many of such violations
were charged to foreign-born resi-
dents. Robins, flickers and doves al-
so fell in large numbers to such hunt-
ers, who usually gave as an excuse
that they “looked like blackbirds.”
Members of the commission believe
that closing the blackbird season not
