Aug. 12, 1935: From the Cleveland bureau, the winner of an “elimination heat” crossed the finish line at the National Soap Box Derby in Akron, Ohio. A crash of one of the soap boxes into the judges’ stand later that day injured three, none seriously, however. Maurice E. Bales, 13, from Indiana, won the derby, and officials noted that “25 persons were overcome by the heat during the spectacle.” Mr. Bales won a four-year scholarship to any state university in the country, a trophy and a “midget racer.” Photo: The New York Times
