The elimination trials for the Indianapolis 500-mile auto race will be held on May 20, 21 and 22, and the present entry of forty-one cars will be cut to thirty-three, meaning that eight will be eliminated at the trials. The car making the fastest time in the trials will be given position No. 1 in the race, next the pole, and the other positions will be assigned according to the best times made in the trials by the other cars. Frank Galvin, a former six-day bike rider, and George Babcock, the New England racing phenom, have been selected with Dario Resta to complete the Peugeot team for the race, and these men will start practicing on the track in a few days.
