INDIANAPOLIS, May 20.—Rain today caused a postponement of the first elimination trials for the 500-mile automobile race to be held here May 29. Forty cars are entered, and as the number of starters has been limited to thirty-three, seven cars will be eliminated. Each car to be permitted to start will have to make an average speed of eighty miles and hour, and the thirty-three showing the best time above that average will make the start in the race. Three trials will be given each driver. At the Speedway offices it was said the trials would start tomorrow, weather permitting.
