Fourteen 2-year-old standard-breds were entered in today’s feature, which will consist ot two elimination heats with the first five finishers in each heat going for the big money in the showdown mile.

The children, representing between 50 and 55 Ohio counties were to be guests at a luncheon and admitted to all rides on the midway free of charge. One rather spectacular feature scheduled today was a “car drop.” in which a car suspended at a height of 125 feet was to be released to crash onto a second ear pointed upward. Aim of the demonstration, sponsored by the State Highway Safety Department, was to show what happens when two cars traveling at 62 miles an hour crash head-on. The cars were to be put on display after the crash. Fair attendance figures indicated the crowds for the first three days are running slightly larger than those of a year ago.
