INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Dec. 30.—The annual Indianapolis motor speedway automobile race will be run over only 300 miles on May 30, 1916, instead of 500 miles, according to the entry blanks, which were sent out today. The purse for the race has been reduced from $50,000 to $30,000, the first prize being $12,000. There will be ten prizes, the same as in former years.

Under a new ruling, five cars of the same make may be entered in the race. In addition to a factory team of three cars, two additional cars of the same name may be entered by individuals not connected with the factory.
