Best Boating Season
In Six Years Is Seen For D. C. Skippers By Malcolm Lamborne, Jr. Unmoved ?by a late spring, Wash ington yachtsmen are getting ready for what the experts say will be the biggest boating season In at least six years. Interest In all phases of yachting and all types of craft is enormous, according to the boating industry here. There had been some doubt that the white heat of interest dis played at last January's motor boat «how In New York would be main tained. The manufacturers now say that, barring *\ recession in business generally, there is no reason why it should not keep up. Orders for new boats are far ahead of deliveries, dealers report. Some prospective yachtsmen ac cordingly may not get afloat for months. Oldtlmers who may be tempted to sell their craft In the present high market are reluctant to do so because of the steep re placement cost, one water-front observer reports Meanwhile, local yacht clubs are beginning to stir as members throw back winter covers and begin annual fltting-out operations. Commodore C. C. Jadwin of Co rinthian Yacht Club reports the club railway has been rebuilt com pletely and is ready to haul mem bers' boats. The club also is going to have a .flag pole on the club lawn—the first In many years. Dedication ceremonies are being considered for later this spring. Commodore Earl Baker of Capital Yacht Club predicts a bu*y season for members. He says the club will have several new boats added to its already large fleet. Potomac River Sailing Association members, always out early, are get» ting ready for the opening of their spring series. Commodore George Dankers an nounced yesterday that a 12-race series will begin May 4 and continue through June IS. The traditional warmup race will be held April 27 and the Gunston Cove regatta over May 30. All series events will be held on the Potomac off Hains Point. Dankers anticipates a big turnout and says the season looks "better than ever." A full calendar of Chesapeake Bay events is in prospect for local sailors, once they finish racing here. Two major yachting events prom ise to attract much attention this year. One is the ocean race from Newport. R. Ï., to Annapolis, spon sored by the New York Yacht Club, Annapolis Yacht Club and the Naval Academy Yacht Squadron. It begins June 21. The other is the Gold Cup race August 10. on Jamaica Bay, Long Island. Band Leader Guy Lom bardo will-defend his title won last year at Detroit. Washington again will be hast to outstanding drivers of the country at next September's President's Cup Regatta.

Terps' Nine Scores for Shipley As He Quits Basket Coaching Maryland's baseball team helped] Burt Shipley celebrate his résigna-' tion as basket ball coach by coming; from behind to nip Dartmouth, 7-4,1 on a heavy field yesterday at College Park. Shipley's action in surrender ing the basket ball reins, a decision he made over a year ago, was reluc tantly accepted by Director of Ath letics Jim Tatum. Tatum, in New York on a com bination good-will and business trip, was aware of Shipley's intention and already has a successor picked out. Maryland officials said his identity might be revealed by Sunday. Shipley has no regrets in giving up basket ball and most assuredly didn't seem gloomy as Outfielder Stuffy Evans paced his mates to vic tory over the Indians with a 3-run rally in the seventh. Evans clouted a single and double and climaxed the seventh inning uprising by steal ing home. Baseball has been Shipley's game first and last and the helter-skelter modern brand of bas ket ball was not to his liking. Maryland, tuning up for today's MEN!

Jo.e Fletcher advises the first perch i were taken ruesaay, jusi before sundown, at Dixie Landing, a favorite angling spot for the first run of fish. They were of fair size. Dixie Landing, in the event you're new to the sport, is across from and a little below Fletchers Cove (also known by old-timers as Edes Mill Cove) on the Virginia shore. Càpt. Fletcher expects to have all 1*3 boats in the water by this week end. All told he will have around 45 boats this year. The herring also are on the run and snaggers are taking their first fish up near Chain Bridge. The hickory and white shad haven't put in their appearance, but should be showing up around the end of next week. The run of yellow perch down at Aliens Fresh is over for the year, although you may pick up a few stragglers the remainder of this week.

RE. 5222 1 Terps' Lacrosse Class Not Established by Rout of Harvard Although Harvard displayed a more ruggey defense than any previous lacrosse team from "the Squayah," Maryland's Coach Jack Taber isnt ready to award his boys the national title on the .strength of their 15-2 victory over the Crim son yesterday at College Park. "I'll know more about it after the Duke match at Durham tomorrow," he said today, just before the team's caravan set out for the scene of bat tle. "We made enough mistakes yesterday to lose 10 matches simply because of inexperience, but there were some bright spots in our work. But Duke will be more of a test and IU settle for a one-goal victory." - Jiles Freeman, speedy six-footer, paced the Terp attack against Har vard with four points. He twisted and dodged through the Crimson's burly defense for three unassisted goals and played a bang-up defen sive game himself. Tom Hoffecker stood out àt goal and Rookie Char ley Herbert showed enough to mark him as a potential star. Harvard's attack was inept. At one time the New Englanders had the ball in Maryland territory with three Terps sidelined by penalties and still couldn't score. Harvard is due for another wal loping today at Navy, which tuned up by trouncing Dartmouth, 19-5, yesterday far it· oecond straight win. J>.$p " er Ce). Huehes (2), MedairylS), Herbert v2), Oreleckl.
