FORCED BACK BY GAS LEAK AND FOG, WILL DEFY “JINX" IN NEW TRY 1,200 Miles From Starting Field, He Returns When Adverse Weather and Broken Pipe Threaten Life.

By the Af'ociited Prets. TANAPE, Aomori. Japan, Sep-1 - tember 15—Still defying the se ries of misfortunes preventing him from flying across the Pa cific, Harold L. Bromley tonight told a Rengo News Agency re porter he would continue his ef forts to span the ocean to Tacoma by airplane. Bromley said a broken gaso line feed pipe was the decisive factor in causing him to, turn back and land here today, after having flown several hundred miles eastward in his attempted nonstop dash to Tacoma, but that “adverse elements,” includ ing fog, contributed to the de cision. The break, Bromley said, was noticed late Sunday off Kam chatka Peninsula, when gasoline began spraying him, chafing his face and inflaming his eyes. Bromley said he and his naviga tor, Harold Gatty, alternated at the controls throughout the night, suffering great discom fort. Soon after the landing near here at « o’clock this morning (1 p.m., Sunday, Pacific standard time) a physician treated the flyers' eyes, but found no permanent injury. Series of Misfortunes. Bromley’s first plane nosed into the ground a year ago as he was taking off 1 from Tacoma, Wash., Field for Toklo. Bromley was not injured, but the plane was wrecked. The tail assembly fell off his second plane while Lieut. Harold Fahy was testing it. Fahy was injured seriously. He was killed In a plane crash several months later. Bromleys third plane burst into flames in the air, fatally injuring H. W. Catling when it crashed. Bromley’s plane City of Tacoma plowed deeply into the soft beach at Shitsukari, 17 miles from here, but es caped serious damage. Tanabe is the nearest railway and telegraph station and the roads to Shitsukari are impassable by automo bile. Japanese experts said it would take several days to dig the plane out , and refit it for the short flight to Sami fhlro Beach. It was from the latter place Bromley started early Sunday and the site which he will probably choose if he takes off again. Could Have Reached Alaska. The flyers estimated they had cov ered 1,200 miles before turning back and had traveled a total of 2,400 miles when they landed near here. They said their gasoline supply would have b»en sufficient to reach butch Harbor, Alaska. The monoplane was in the air 24 hours and 52 minutes. The plane had reached 300 miles beyond Capt Lopetka. nearly half way to the westernmost Aleutians, before turning back when the flyers encountered thick fog and head Binds. Fear for the flyers’ safety had in creased when no reports were received after they began its hazardous flight. Although the plane carried a wireless set, operators on ships at sea and land stations were unable to pick up signals from the flyers. It was believed rain had disabled the radio set. Before their take-off from Samishlro Beach the aviators had been promised ideal weather along almost the entire distance of the great Circle route to Tacoma. Shortly after the plane left the sandy runway of Samishiro Beach it en countered. fog. rain and headwinds over the Kurile Island. First Intimation he was returning came when the radio operator of the Dollar liner President Taft, docked in Yokohama Harbor, intercepted a mes sage saying the plane had passed Cape Lopatka. southernmost point of the Komc-hatka Peninsula, late Sunday aft ernoon.

September 15 (By radio to the Associated Press). —The Enterprise, defending the America’s Cup from the challenge of Sir Thomas Lipton’s Sham rock V. won the second consecutive race of the series today. The slim American defender ghosted across the finish line at 2:41:31. Whistles on the spectator fleet Dlaved a noisv chorus as En terprise slipped between the buoy and the boat marking the end of the 30-mile triangular course. Her time for the course was 4 hours and 31 seconds. It was estimated that Shamrock was a good 10 minutes behind. U. S. S. KANE,* OFF AMERICA’S CUP COURSE, September 15 </P) (By Radio to the Associated Press).—Enterprise, slim marvel of a racing yacht led Sir Thomas Lipton’s Shamrock V by 6 mimites at the end of the first 10 miles of their second 30-mile race Ur the series for the America's Cup. Outmaneuvered at the start and outfooted in the 10-mile beat into the wind, Sir Thomas’ boat appeared to have no chance against the American defender and what may prove to be the Irish baronet’s last attempt at the “Silly Old Mug” seemed to be another lost cause. Harold S. Vandeybilt, wealthy amateur sportsman, who skippered the Enterprise, handled his white-hulled boat like a master and put her on the mark straight and true. Ernest <Ned) Heard, veteran English skipper, at the helm of Shamrock, appeared to have met his master in the American sports man. He fought a losing battle from the start and lost precious minutes at the turn when he reached for the mark a bit too early and was forced to pull up the challenger so hard that she almost lost way. Ahead of him all the way from the starting line was the tower ing mast and wind filled sails of the Enterprise and tack as he would that barricade of sail stood between him and the breeze. Outfooted by Enterprise. The Shamorck crossed the line on the weather side, but she was outfooted by the Enterprise, which quickly crossed her bow and held that position to within sight of the IQ-mile mark. Enterprise made the turn at 12:21:30, just 1 hour 41 minutes and 30 seconds after the : starting gun sent them on their way. With the wind <on their beam on the second leg, it -was expected that they would sail along much faster, then at the next turn they would have the wind behind them for a quick run home. There was no question today of their finishing within the limit al lowed for the race. Conditions were almost ideal for rac ing today, with a 10-knot breeze, a clear sky and fine visability. This was in direct contrast to the first race on Saturday when fog shrouded the course from starting buoy to finish line. Race Over Triangular Course Despite the changed conditions, the fleet accompanying the boats today was much smaller than the great armada that sailed out of Newport Saturday morning and surged along through the j mists in the wake of the racing yachts. The race today was over a triangular | course as compared to the straight ; windward and leeward course that wasi sailed the first day. The series goes to the first yacht to win four races and if today’s race may be taken as a fair indication of which way the wind is blowing, more than that will not be necessary to decide pos session of the old silver cup America has held for 79 years. The second of the series of races got under way at 10:40 a.m. tE. S. T.), ex actly on schedule. Commodore Vanderbilt hit the start ing line just as the starting whistle sounded. Shamrock was a bit tardy, apparently fearful of crossing too soon. Vanderbilt was noted In the elimina tion trials for hitting the mark right on the dot A nice breeze of about 10 miles an hour was blowing as the two yachts started over the 30-mile triangular course. Both craft werp wearing mam sail, stay sails, jibs and large jib topsails. € Enterprise Draws Away. Enterprise, sailing closer to the wind, was drawing away from the Sham rock in the first few minutes of the race. The American defender was so far ahead that sailing men estimated ' Vanderbilt might cross the bow of Shamrock to the weather berth if he so desired. ! Shamrock, unless Skipper Ernest I Heard could shake her up. appeared doomed to take the wake of the Enter l prise as she did throughout the first I race Saturday, which the American boat won with a margin of 2 minutes, 52 seconds. Vanderbilt crossed Shamrock's bow at 10 52. His maneuver left the green hulled challenger about five lengths in the Enterprise's lee. As soon as the American skipper had his boat well to weather of the Shamrock he went back to the star board tack. I Vanderbilt’s new position was of great I Jones works herself up to a high nerv- | | ous pitch several times each day as j she recalls events In her turbulent past. Her memory of more recent happenings, however, is fast slipping. Many pflpple visit her dally, but a few minutes after they leave her room she has forgotten them. This morning a trained nurse, en gaged by a person who preferred to re main anonymous, appeared at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Walter E. Burgess, with whom Mother Jones lives, and said she had been employed to care for the aged labor leader. Mother Jones, how ever, refused her services, saying that Mrs. Burgess, to whom she Is greatly attached, could supply all her needs. Saturday’s Circulation, 103,376 Sunday’s Circulation, 113.649 strategic advantage. Being to weather, his boat would be first to feel the breese and also act as an obstruction to the wind reaching the Shamrock’s sails at its full velocity. Both boats were surging along with white water showing under the bows. Although Shamrock appeared to be footing it along in good shape, it was impossible to see how the challenger : could work through Enterprise's lee. All Skipper Vanderbilt had to do to check Shamrock was to bear down on her and blanket her with his own towering spread of sail. Such a ma neuver undoubtedly would almost empty the wind from the British boat’s sails. Both boats went over on the port tack at 11:05. Vanderbilt Takes No Chances. Skipper Heard, using every means to gain the advantage, stayed on the port tack but a moment and then went over to starboard. Vanderbilt, faking no chances, quickly followed. The maneuver only gained grolind for the Enterprise, her crew appearing faster In stays on both changes. Ned Heard appeared to be playing ths American defender’s game, as the En terprise is noted for her ability to spin about like a dancer, scarcely losing way. Shamrock went back on the port tack again at 11:18. The Enterprise quickly followed. Vanderbilt was playing the ] game for all there was in it and tak | ing no chance of the challenger slip ping away from him and regaining that i precious advantage the Enterprise won j at the start. Has Shamrock at Mercy. The situation was analagous to that of a cat playing with a mouse, follow ing every movement of the latter to es cape with a countering thrust of *n alert paw. / The American skipper appeared to have the Shamrock at his mercy and it seemed only a question of how wida his lead would be when the boats rounded the 10-mile marker. With the turning marker almost In striking distance at 11:45, an hour and five minutes after the start. Shamrock went over on the starboard tack. Enterprise followed the maneuver closely and Capt. Heard quickly went back to the port tack again. Again Shamrock appeared to have gained nothing by' the shifts: in fact the advantage was with Enterprise, due to her crew’s quicker sail handling. Shamrock Tacks Again. Shortly after noon Shamrock tacked again, but Skipper Vanderbilt held on the starboard tack, heading for the marker that showed a third of the race was run. apparently satisfied that he had the situation well in, hand. The sun had burned away the mist as the boats neared the turn and the fine visibility made it a brilliant picture as the white and green boats slipped along through the blue water, spray flying from their bows. Two blimps cruised leisurely overhead, their silver bodies etched against a bril liant blue sky. Rounding the 10-mile mark at 12:21:30, 1 hour and 40 minutes from the start, Enterprise boomed away on the long reach for the next marker. She was sliding easily through the gen tle swell which was running. Shamrock, almost a mile behind now, seemed to be having harder going through the swells and plunged her nose sluggishly into them. Both yachts broke out ballooners as they rounded the turn and picked up speed.
