Special to The Indianapolis News.

SOUTH BEND, Ind., May 31—Samuel P. Dickson, the mechanician of the Amplex car, who was killed during the Indianapolis speedway race yesterday, was well known in this city and at Mishakawa, where the Amplex factory is located. Arthur Greiner, driver of the machine, who was injured in the accident, was also well known here. The two men were last in the city together transacting business for the Amplex factory. The dead mechanic is well spoken of by officials of the automobile company. Though he had never driven in an important race, he had served as mechanician a number of times and was expected to become a driver. Dickson was twenty-four years old and a Chicago man. His father was Major M. E. Dickson. He was in the employ of J. F. Wise Company, of New York, eastern agents of the Amplex car.
