“1950 IriniastaroLis YEA tenoox ” (Floyd Clymer, Los Angeles, $1.50).
This book tells you most of the things you could wish to know about this year’s 500 Mile Race at Indianapolis, which was stopped by rain after 845 miles, although curiously, it contains only a few action pictures of the race. Practically everything else is there—technical data, notes, scores of intimate pictures of men and machines, a minute by minute account of the race, a Swedish account of Indianapolis by Bert Schmidt, Chas. Lytle’s story, engine drawings, biographies of the drivers, tabulated results and Taruffi’s account of what he thought of it all. This is a book as only America could do it and an essential companion to Clymer’s “Indianapolis History” and subsequent annual supplements.—W. B.
