eetting, a day's outing for the sisters
and the cousins and the aunts.
Nor does it appear anything like a
certainty that there will bo a completed
race to-day. The weather predictions
are similar to those made for yesterday
and it may be that the two sloops will
go through another innocuous drifting
stunt which will still further lessen
the diminishing interest in the "blue
ribbon contest of the seas."
Defender's Backers Still Confident
The hackers of the defender are still
confident. They get some satisfaction
out of the fact Ihat Kcsolute outdrifted
Shamrock yesterday and they feel sure
that with lipht breezes and a tricky
change of wind Captain Adams will
have all the better of it again. The
chances aro that if the race is finished
to-day it will be a monotonous one,
sailed barely within the timo limit.
Saturday's robust wind was the last
chance of Shamrock, it seems. The
winds that called for the big green
boat called once, boisterously. Then
they left and they seem to have left
tor good.
Jackie Gives Yacht
Crowd Only Thrill
"Man Overboard!" Pro?

ing as Boats Race inCalm
By Jack Lawrence
A deserting wind left Shamrock IV
and Resolute flat on their respective
water lines yesterday afternoon when
they had drifted tin miles of the
thirty-mile contest that was to have
derided the fate of the America's Cup.
With only one hour and a half left of
the six-hour time limjk and with still
twenty miles to go, the race committee
Of the New York Yacht Ciub decided
that the feat was impossible and called
the. race off.
Another eifert will be made to-day
to sai! the fifth and deciding contest
for the cup, although the weather man
i.olds out little encouragement in the
i.iatier of winds. Northwesterly
breezes are predicted wi ii a tendency
to shift toward the ;?o, owest during
the afternoon.
Tins is exactly what the wind did
yesterday, and ?is it shifted it sim?
mered down to a whispering zephyr
that was too light to make a ripple on
the galvanized Atlantic, All the rough
and tumble weather chat had caused
calling off of last Saturday's con
teat had disappeared and in its place
there v.ab a fitful, fickle breeze that
made fine promises of a good day's
sailing and then broke them nil.
Contestants Motionless
When the wind quit for the day the
slim-sparred contestants for the
America's Cup were resting motionless
en even keels, and the stake marking
ike end of the first fifteen-mile leg was
still only a bobbing speck on the south?
western horizon. J. P. Morgan's Cor
. air, standing close to the mark,
seemed to be hull-down in the distance
?rom the point where the yachts gave
up the tedious drift and accepted tow
from their respective tenders.
The cup-defending Resolute was at
this time a trifle less than a mile and
. half ahead of the challenging Sham?
rock IV, and about five miles irom the
; uter murk. She had sailed and drifted
n miles in four hours aim a half.
There was hardly a suggestion of
real competition from the time the
0] e went over the line until the '"no
signal was hoisted on the com
: tittee boat. The Atlantic was wrapped
. . a .July siesta, and as she slumbered
graphically the yachts wallowed ana

ncholy retrospection would have
en well satisfied with conditions off
the Jersey coast yesterday. Thero
wasn't a breath to flutter a sail or

The only thrill of the entire day
came when a Jackie on the destroyer
Goldsborough fell overboard while that
hip was lying off the foot of West
116th Street wailing to take guests
down to see the alleged yacht race. The
gob was well on his way to a watery
grave when two of his matos plunged
'?ver the sice and rescued him as ho
was going down for what statisticians
said was the thirty-third time.
When the saiior fell overboard it
d more confusion on the good ship
Goldsborough than breaking out a spin?

sailor floundered about and swallowed
gallons of the unaltered Hudson ol?
<ers ari'l crew held a long consultation

to decide what should be done in such
h situation. Some one suggested that

Department, a Une should be tossed tc

Jackie in Role of Hero
When it appeared that the men on
the destroy;-! had decided on a policy
of watchful waiting a diminutive
Jackie in blue dungarees dived over the
stern of the Coldsborough and after
a long swim reached his mate. The
man had disappeared from the surface
by this time, but the dungaree-clad
swimmer managed to reach him and
keep him afloat until a navy tug took
them both aboard.
When the challenger and defender
began to make sail in Sandy Hook
early In the morning, the wind was
blowing about fifteen knots out of the
northwest and there was every indi?
cation that perfect racing conditions
would prevail for the last cup contest.
Outside the Hook, the open water was
brilliant with sparkling white caps, and
it seemed certain that Sir Thomas Lip
ton was to have the strong wind he
had desired for the deciding race.
Resolute was the first to get under
way and she was quickly followed by
tho challenger. Tho American boat's
new mainsail, bent yesterday by hei
crew, appeared to set perfectly as she
tilled away in the direction of Ambrose
The yachts had hardly started then
rather long voyago to the course wher
the wind began to shift in a southerlj
direction and gave indications of ful?
filling the Sandy Hook predictions thai
it would bo blowing from the south?
west by the time the racers were senl
As the wind shifted- its velocity de?
creased, and when Resoluto reached
Ambrose Light vessel it had softened
considerably and had hauled around
to north, northeast. The breeze showed
no'signs of settling in any permanem
quarter, and this caused the race com?
mittee on the Baryton to hoist a tem?
porary postponement signal at 11:45
the hour originally set for raising the
preparatory flag.
Tho importance of the contest made
it desirable to send the yachts away
in a true wind that would enable them
to sail the entire thirty miles on a
windward and leeward course.
Few Yechts at Starting Ltae
Comparatively few yachts were gath?
ered about the starting line when the
racing Bloops reached the course. Moat

The Yachts Drifting in the Breeze
This photograph "was taken in midafternoon, when the wind had shrunk to almost nothine.
Shamrock Making Slow Progress ?n Ligtu Breeze
by veteran yachtsmen who seldom miss
a sailing race.
The start of yesterday's race had
been set for noon, but the prepara?
tory signal was not hoisted on the
Baryton until 12:15. and it was 12:30:29
when Shamrock went over the line.
The wind at that time was northeast by
east, which made the first leg a run
to leeward instead of a beat. The mark
was anchored about seven miles off
Deal Beach.
The fact that the first leg was to be
a run was considered distinctly favor?
able to Shamrock, as it delayed the
windward work, in which she is no
match for Resolute, and made it pos?
sible that a shift in the direction of
the wind might eliminate it altogether
before the fifteen-mile mark was
The jockeying preceding the get?
away was not of the snappy, brilliant
sort that has characterized a number
of the former starts. Captain Charles
Francis Adams, on the Resolute, seemed
to be oblivious of the challenger's pres?
ence, and went about his business as
though she were still in Gosport.
He cruised about to windward of the
line in leisurely fashion, and it was
plain that he had no overwhelming de?
sire to be the first to cross. He was
200 yards east of the committee boat
when the warning signal was broken
out, and was but little closer when "the
starting signal was given.
Resolute Crosses Line
Captain Burton, on the challenger,
cruised up and down close to the
Baryton after the warning signal, and
was In position to cross the line
twenty-nine seconds after the starting
signal was hoisted.
Resolute tacked down under the com?
mittee boat's stern and went over the
line fifty-six seconds behind Shamrock.
The challenger crossed at 12:30:2'.'
and the defender at 12:31:25.
Both yachts were carrying mainsails,
staysails, jibs and baby jib topsails
during the jockeying, but just before
the getaway they both broke out bal?
loon jibs. Just after the start Sham?
rock set her spinnaker boom to star?
board, and Adams immediately fid
lowed suit on Resolute, sending this
sail itself up in stops.
Burton evidently thought better of
this move and took in the spinnaker
boom live minutes after he had set it.
Adams was apparently satisfied to let
the Englishman take the initiative, and
he also took in his spinnaker pole.
The wind was falling rapidly an?
had dropped to six knots at 1 : 1 ;
Shamrock footed well in the early pan
of tho race and maintained her lea<
until 2 o'clock, when, alter both yacht:
had jibed, Resolute nosed to the fron
and remained there for about sixt;
seconds, when the challenger found ;
couple of vigorous puffs and went inti
the lead once more.
A shift in the wind sent the yacht
on a broad reach down the Jerse
shore and it looked for a time a
though the green sloop was going t
leave her Herreshoff rival far ?sten
The wind, however, was fading rapidl
and what there was of it came in pull
that caused the boats to run into oi
soft spot after another. When the
hit these becalmed areas they lost a
their headway and their sails wou
lose the wind and start flapping.
The faltering breeze was shiftir
southward gradually and it began

At this time they were floundering
j about off Seabright, having covered
] less than five miles since 12:30. The
wind kept hauling to the south and by
2:30 the reach along the Jersey shore
had become a beat to windward, assum?
ing that there was any wind. At 2:33
both skippers doused their ballooners
and set staysails, jibs and baby jib
On a long startioard tack Shamrock
stood far out to sea in search of a
breeze, while Adams remained close to
the shore. At this time the racers
were about on even terms and had just
enough wind in their sails to give them
steerage way. At 4 o'clock, with only
two hours and a half in which to cover
nearly twenty miles, Resolute set a
reaching jib, but it merely flapped dis?
mally like the rest of her sails.
Spectators on surrounding vessels
tried all the well known tricks for
' whistling up a breeze, such as scratch
i ing masts and throwing pennies over?
board, but not even a catspaw came to
ruffle the surface of the oily sea.
Resolute tried her luck on a port tack
about -5:30, and the challenger, still
standing far out to sea, followed suit
a minute later. The Lipton craft found
a few puffs in her distant position, but
they deserted her almost before thej
filled her sails. Shortly after he jibed
Burton set a reaching jib, but it proved
as useless as the rest of his canvas.
At 4:45 there were signs on the hori?
zon of somothing resembling a steadj
blow, but it was coining too late anc
too slowly.
Shamrock's long seaward tack, taker
en the chhnce of running down an ex?
clusive breeze, caused the green clippei
to wander far off her course and lcfl
her in a position that would have meant
certain defeat If there had been suffi?
cient wind to complete the race.
J. P. Morgan's Corsair could be seer
in the distance standing close to th?
outer mark, and it was apparent at E
o'clock that there was no chance oi
finishing. At 6:05 the committee boal
steamed between the yachts and rabee

tion that you could always get a wind
by scratching the mast. Seemingly, it
is new stuff, for it didn't impress
.?Eolus. Then a sailor told us that wo
couldn't fail to get a breeze if we'd
drop money into the ocean. Eight
pennies and a Canadian dime made a
largo splash, but they didn't raise a
nickel's worth of wind.
Joseph Jefferson O'Neill said that
.?Eolus wouldn't think of so much as
sneezing for less than a quarter, and
he borrowed a cheek book and wrote
out a cheek for $10,000. Evidently Mr.
O'Neill is a man of large affairs, for
he said, "Any bank will do. It doesn't
make any difference."
There was some little difficulty be?
cause no one knew the initials of
.?Eolus. Mr. O'Neill solved that by
making it out to bearer, lie wrapped
the check around a lump of lead and
threw it overboard. Notiiing hap?
pened. Somebody suggested that may?

Experts Nice, Simple Folk
After all the incantations had failed
even the experts admitted that there
was nothing much in sitting about to
watch a couple of yachts drift. When
relieved from the strain of ?t grueling
contest, yachting experts seem to be a
likable but simple minded set of folk. ,
They try to amuse each other during
periods of calm by reciting limericks
and telling riddles. Most o? the lim?
ericks were somewhat tainted by the'
coarseness which seemed to be tradi?
tional with seafaring men, but one of
the riddles was at least harmless..
"If Stephen S. Wise, clad in nothing
but a bathing suit, were lost on the
top of the Matteihorn in February,"'
began one expert, "what vegetable that !
we had for breakfast would that re- i
mind you of?"
"Who do you mean. Stephen S. ?
Wise?" asked another expert. "Is that i
Rabbi Wise?"
"Of course," repliedt^he riddle make" i
somewhat testily, and We could undfr- I
I stand his anger, for the question vir- ?
tually gave away the answer to his .
riddle, and we all said "Kohlrabi."
It seemed to us a rather sorry joke,
because it wasn't really kohlrabi that '
| wo had for breakfast, but potato salad.
I When they went on with more riddles .
; and some decidedly questionable lim- |
j cricks, with not a word about the ,'
| League of Nations or the growth of the [
British Labor party, we turned to a
! book which we brought for just such an i
| emergency. It is called "The Advanc- .
| ing Hour" and it was written by Nor- i
' man Hapgood.
I Mr. Hapgood is one of those curious ;
i independents who can look straight
i through Mr. Palmer and Mr. Burleson
i and see Woodrow Wilson as the great
; est liberal of our day. Still there, is
much in his book that is interesting.!
i We were interested, for instance, in
reading, "Conformity means many ad- !
vantages, but when Thomas Jefferson
wrote his own epitaph he disdained to
put on it. any external honors. He did
not mention that he had been Secre

only that he had written two docu?

had founded an institution for the :

[Nicholson Gets New Ideas
Charles E. Nicholson, designer of
Shamrock, said yesterday that he had
learned much about wind and wave j
conditions that obtain about the Amer?
ica's Cup course that would bo in?
valuable to him in the designing of
sloops for racing in these waters.
Mr. Nicholson still insists that the
present races have been little more
than trial races for Shamrock. Ho ,
thinks that in all future America's
Cup races the contenders should be
manned entirely by a crew from the
public they represent. Resolute's crewi
is said to be made up largely of Scan?
dinavian sailors.

So keen ib his desire to win the
I cherished trophy that he has made a
\ provision in hid will, setting aside a
fund to construct challengers until the
cup is won back for England, should
he fail personally to achieve the am?
bition of his life. The fact that this
provision had been made came from
one of Sir Thomas's English guesta on
board in his hearing, and he did not
deny it.
Regarding the immediate future,
however, ho was very specific. Discuss?
ing the situation with the newspaper
men on his yacht, Sir Thomas said, in
response to a question: "In the event
Shamrock IV should not win the- cup I
shall wait ten months to give others a

signal was interpreted to Sir Thomas
who said: "I am exceedingly sorry tha
the race is off, but the boats couldn'
possibly have finished the course.
am hoping for better winds to-morrow.'
Then, turning to his guests, he con
tinued: ''Von had better get your winte:
clothing out of storage, because i
begins to look as though we wou'dn'

Honor Only Object of Quest
Shortly after this the daily sessioi
with newspaper men be^an. As usuai

flanked their friend Lipton and took a:
fictive part in the verbal battle tha

At the outset Lord Dewar, in a sori
ous mood, said: "I nave known Lipto:
for thirty years and I can sav positive
ly that he has but ont? thinjj on hi

At this stage Sir John Ferguson ?
broke in and said, "If you win a wife ?

won't you?"
"I thoroughly agree witn you," re- i
plied Sir Thomas, "especially now that ;

"Aweel," said Sir Thomas, looking
over at Margaret Strickland, the young

j newspaper men he added, "You boys
| will begin to think that we are a trav?

Penalized as Motorist
Resides yachting, Sir Thomas is an
' ardent automobilist. and although over
? seventy years old drives his own car.
| He proudly showed his English driver'?
; license, and pointed out the convictions
; written on it. The very first entry
' was marked "third offense."
"Once while I was driving be
j St. Albans and Barnet, in England," be
i said, "I ran into a flock of sheep during
! a dark nighl and killed six of them. 1
i pulled up and noticed a policeman get
off his horse. The policeman went
! over to the shepherd and 1 overheard
him say, 'I'll make an example of these
people. Just bccaun'- they're rich they
think they are privileged.'
"Then he came over to me and began,
'This is outrageous.' I tried to explain
to him, but he wouldn't lieten, and said, ?
'Yon can explain that to the magistrate
at St. Albans.'
" 'All right,' T said, 'but I wasn't
going away without doing the ri^'ht !
thing. Tho shepherd was driving with- :
| out a light and I couldn't see him. I
am sorry, but you can have the sheep
that were hilled.' 'Do you mean that?'
! he said, and when I had told him again
| he went over to the shepherd and said:
| 'Why, you ruffian, what do you mean
! by having your sheep on the road like
that? You might have killed some of
! these good people.'
On another occasion, when he had
been arrested for an infraction of the
? automobile laws, Sir Thomas said: "1
; was brought up before the magistrate
j in Southampton, and after my cace
1 had been presented the police sergeant
who made the charge turned to tin
magistrate and said: 'Your worship,
I wish his yacht would go as fast as his
car.' "

Despite the disappointment of the
\ many yachtsmen who went dowi
! bay or. Saturday to see what they ex
| pected would be the final race for
I America's Cup, many yachts went out1
to the foui'se again yesterday, ai-i - ?.-,-'??.
i there was a falling off in attendance
on the public steamers. .'.lore than a
score of boats left the New York Yacht
Club anchorage, off Ease Twenty-third
Street, and almost as many steamed
from the Columbia Yacht Clul , off
West Eighty-sixth Street. The Corsair!
left the latter anchorage before nine
o'clock with a larj;e party on board
and the Casiania, with Commodore Ed?
ward F. Doheny, went out from the |
same place with many guests. The
Tech, owned by General Coleman du ,
Pont, also left from the Columbia an?
Harry Payne Whitney, on the While
away, left the anchorage in East River
around nine o'clock and liad a number
of men aboard. Other yachts oui were

There was a decrease in passengers ?
aboard the Fall River Liner Plymouth

Spring overcoats were much more in i
evidence than duck trousers when the
Plymouth left. In the way of fen
attire, heavy sweaters and thick sport :
coats took the place of daintier sum
mer friils. There were plenty of cold j
drinks aboard, but warm coffee was
a popular beverage.
