TO CROSS OCEAN
Commodore Pugh Will Take
700-Horse Power Racing
Boat to England.
Commodore James A. Pugh of the
Columbia Yacht club, at Chicago, will
take "Disturber III," his famous 700
horse power racing beat, to England
for the Harmsworth international
trophy race Sept. 15. if the owner ot
"Ankle Deep" fulfills his promise to
race "Ankle Deep" at tha Keokuk and
Chicago rcgatt&s jjiia. month.
At the recent Perry centennial
races, Commodore Push was one of a
party of western sportsmen who saw
"Kitty Hawk V" lead the world cham
pion "Baby Reliance' by 100 yards
and cross tUe finish line at 48 miles
an hour when "Baby Reliance" twist
ed off' her shaft.
Commodore Pugh's boat is said to
be ten miles an hour faster this year
than last, and if she is 6he'll be a
formidable challenger to cross the big
pcndvin quest of the Harmsworth
trophy, which was held in America
for so many years by the "Dixie"fam-
ily of champions. "Disturber III" m
with many misfortunes last year, but
she Is wi'hout question the greatest
boat in many respects ever built In
America. Her power plant Is com
posed of 24 cylinders, banked inside
the hull like books on shelves. No
other boat has such power. While
Disturber is heavy, she has a couple
of hundred horse power to spare over
lier most powerful rival, to get her
extra weight out of water.
"Disturber III'" has been officially
entered in the Mississippi Valley
races at Keokuk, Iowa, August 26, 27
