SWEETSER AND EVANS TO PLAY OFF FOR NATIONAL AMATEUR GOLF TITLE
Siwanoy Ace Sets Course Record in Beating Jones 'Met' Champion Scores a 69, Holes Another Long Pitch Shot and Defeats Southerner 8 and 7 at Brookline ?Evans Downs Tired Knepper, 11 and 9. * By KERR N. PETRIE. CouNTRr Club, Brookline, Mass., Sept. .8.?The chairman of the Bobby tiones Boosters Club to-day dug his toes into the dirt on the links of the Country Club of Brookline during the semi-final match in the national amateur golf championship between the Atlanta star and the metropolitan title holder, Jess Sweetser of Siwanoy, and remarked in an aggrieved tone of vcice: "Officer, he's at it again. If I was as lucky as that boy Sweetser I sure would shoot craps for the rest'of my natural life." The chairman of the B. J. B. C. had just put in a bad half hour watch ing the flower of Qeorgia fade before the sunbeam of Siwanoy in a scorching match that curled the petals and withered the leaves and brought that dizzy sickening feeling to the heart of the true son of the South. The players were turning from the' eighth holo In the morning round and the Atlantans were wiping from their eyes the vision of an agonizing picture. For Sweetser had beernat it again. On the second hole he had stunned the rooters' club by holing a masliie nib lick pitch for a 2 and then he had gone along and taken the fifth, sixth and seventh from Bobby. At the eighth he had laid his opponent a stymie and with no more than eight holes gone he was 5 up on the At lantan. Right off the eighth green the chair man of the B. J. B. C. made his per oration as he thumbed a pair of "African golf" clubs. It was about the only consolation left, for even at this stage one could sense the cataclysm that was overtaking Jones. Stveetaer In "Inspired Stood." Too good to be true from a Xew York Standpoint it seemed and yet there was the evidence. Sweetser was in that Inspired mood which has made mince meat of so many records around the Metropolitan district this year. He was having a bit of luck, but that was neither here nor there in the general aspect of the situation. The Metropolitan champion was play ing golf furiously, relentlessly and that sort of golf he continued to play. Super golf It was. He finished that round in 6^ and. as he had done so many times beore this season, clitped a stroke from the course mark. He left off 5 up on Jones and then going at him again in th? a/ternoon won the match by ? and 7 and passed on to the final bracket of the championship where to-morrow he meets Charles Evans, Jr. The latter in much the same manner walked all over Rudy Knepper of Sioux City and qualified for the final by 11 up and 'J to Play. The Atlantans will go home from this remarkable tournament feeling that I >amo Luck has had a lot to do with the defeat of their favorite. But, luck alone does not win a match by 8 up and 7 to play from such a player as Jones. Nor docs luck allAw a man to plav twenty-nine holes of golf In the semi final of a national championship at as average of four under 4s a3 Sweetser did to-day. To flash such a game, of course. It is necessary that one should have a share of the breaks. The breaks for Sweetser were that he holed a. mashie niblick shot at the second and stymied his opponent at the eighth. But. when a man keeps on hitting the ball far and well down the middle of the fair-way from the tee, pitching up with deadly accuracy at the pin. holing out with the touch of a master on the greens and sometimes making It so easy for himself by that uncanny wielding of tho mashie and the Iron, it is hardly fair to jay that he Is winning because the gods are with ^lm. Figures Tell Kloqncnt Story* Still It not necessary to defend Sweetser from the tongue of the be* llttlers on this occxaion. His own figures for the day's play have an elo quent story to tell. Over and above tnat there are the figures of Jones. Kxeept for that stymie Bobby would have been out In 39 and home In 34 for a 73. two strokes over the par of the > ourse. In the afternoon he was out In 37. but then Sweetser was out In 38. Altogether It has been a surprising day. Two mashes that. It was expected, would be fought out tooth and nail have crumbled Into rather one-sided affairs and In at least one the favorite has been on the bitter end of defeat. Almost from the start Jones has looked to he a potential winner. His play and courage have been generally admired and yet to-day he was against a game that he could not cope with. I It must not be thought that Bobby | lay down when he felt the lash. He stood up and fought back bitterly. From the ninth to the eighteenth he played valiantly. Coming home he was 2 under par with a 34 and yet the best he could get out of It was a single hole. Sweetser, 6 up at the ninth was B up at the end of the round and the only hole that Bobby Jones, nil the way from the first tee to the last green, could win, was the seventeenth. Here Sweetser took 3 putts. Hweetaer'a One Mistake. This was the only mistake that the Metropolitan champion made all day and the mistake was one of Judgment only. Sweetser was above the hole on long putt. That green is one of the most treacherous at Brookllne. Usually the players have been finding them selves skating past on these downhill putts and then struggling hard for the next one. Sweetser, remembering this, triad to baby his hall down to the cup. Still sticky from the morning dew. the green put the brakes on the ball and Jess found himself five feet short He missed that one and knocked his oppon ent's ball away. It was the first suc cess that Bobby had enjoyed so far. Doubtless It has been a long time since Jones has played twenty-nine holes In an Important match without winning more than two holes. This was bis portion to-day. His second success ?was scored at the second In the after i oon and It required a birdie to turn the trick. It happened In this fashion. Sweetser, although hitting a good shot from the lee. swung his ball to the left so that he bad only an arrow corner of the green to play at With bunkera In front and behind the Patl of "prudence semed to be to the right whore the green waa wide and clear of trouble. But Sweetser aimed directly for the pin and a magnificent shot he played, a high, looping hall, that left him within a dozen feet of the cup. Joss, it soemed, had saved tbe situation, hut Bobby beat him to It, playing a pitch and run to within a club's length of the hole and sinking the putt for a birdie 3 after j Sweetser had missed. That left the Metropolitan champion as he had started the afternoon round lor Sweetser had taken the first In brilliant style with a par 4. beating Jones on the brassle to the green and then laying bla long putt up dead. Bobby pulled over Into the rough and had to pitch over the traps. Ills pitch left him short and his long putt mtasod. There bad been some question In the minds of many as to whether in the afternoon round the grand law of aver ages would lay Its clutches on the match and catapult Sweetser into a battle in which he had to fight to re tail: a disappearing lead. But that first hole gave the Swetser supporters confi dence in their man. Jess played it like a champion, bridging the 440 yards twice across the race track with driver and brassie and holing out perfectly. At the third Sweetser came near to winning another hole. He was outside of Jones on their iron shots to the green but he laid Ills putt on the lip of the cup whereas Bobby missed and had the wind carry his ball down the fast drying green at least eight feet beyond the cup. Bobby holed for a half but he was on the brink of disaster. Playing the second for the fourth Sweetser was weak. The fault was not bis own exactly, as the shot is some what blind. Jones pitched to within eight feet, but he missed the putt, while Sweetser, aftytr swinging his ball off ahcut a club's length, came back at his man for a hait. The metropolitan champion was not putting in this round with the same deadly precision that he had displayed earlier In the. day. Several times he was short, but the redeeming feature of his game now was that anything he left 'himself to do on the greens he did per fectly. Thus every door was closed to Jones. At the fifth again Sweetser left himself a nasty putt of about five feet, and this despite the fact that he was on, while Jones had to chip from short of the green. Bobby's chip was deadly, but Jess came through brilliantly, and once again the Southern "champion had to be content with a half. At the sixth Sweetser tfras inside of Jones, and in putting the metropolitan champion stymied his opponent. Bobby showed his mettle by hurdling the ob stacle for a half. The distance was i Just right, Jones's ball about a foot back and Rweetscr's an inch or two from the cup. Bobby flopped his sphere right Into the cup. It might be here re ! marked that Sweetser beat Jones on ' that approach, even tho igh playing from j the rough. Jones Loses Ground. The seventh hole saw Jones become 6 down again. Sweetser beat him once more, for Bobby's ball was off the green to the right, while that of Sweetser was on. Jones pitched back and took the regulation two putts, while Sweetser finished out hy holing one of only a foot and a half after overrunning that much. Jones had the closer chip from the back of the eighth green, but once again Sweetser holed this thirty Inch putt for n half. The ninth Sweetser won with a par 4 against a 5. For Jones the situation now was hopeless Sweetser. 7 up with 9 to play. And still Swpetser was not done. He outdrove Jones and o'ut pitched him at the tenth. In fart he nearly holed the approach Hla ball rolled off about eighteen Indhes. He was practically dead for a birdie 8. Jones was on. but twenty or twenty-five feet over th? pin. On bis putt he rolled the hall six feet beyond and missed coming bark, i A half In B at the long eleventh left Sweetser victor by 8- and 7 and National finalist for the first time In his life. vs may he strpposrd there were some Intensely Interesting moments In that first round. The first Incident of note was the holing by Sweetser of m&stiie niblick pitch on the spcond after he hnd halved the first In 6. Jess has been a regular sharpshooter throughout this tournament. Four times now he has holed without the aid of bis putter. Twice he did It ?ralnst Willie Hunter, the former British champion, rnce from a bunker. Against Jesse Guilford, last year's winner. Sweetser chipped In from the rough at the fifth. This time, against Jones, the ball took three hops before It disappeared. And Jess well may Claim that he had to do It. Inasmuch as his opponent laid his shot within eight or ten Inches of the cup. Hweetser Holes Another. Another close shave was at the sixth where Sweetser was within not much more than half a dosen Inches of going down again. Such accuracy cannot quite be attributed to luck. Perhaps he was lucky to win the fifth in 5 to 6, for Jones took four shots from the edge of the green after seeing Sweet ser trapped on his second. Mud ad hering to the ball caused trouble for Jones here. This, tho mashlo-nlbllck pitch and the stymie at the eighth was 1 a combination that upset the chairman , and members of tho Bobby Jones Rooters Association. Coming home on that first round Jones disclosed a dazzling brand of golf. Twice he betteded par and got only (wo halves for his pains. These two holes of super golf were the 515 yard eleventh and the 4S0 yard four teenth. At the former Jones wns Just off the edge of the green with his sec ond. Sweetser was back down the hill, but Jess pitched up and held Bobby to a half by holing a twelve foot putt. At the fourteenth both were on with their brassies. Putting from thirty feet, Jones laid his ball an lnnh to the left of the cup.

Chick was bunkered on his second, while Knepper pulled his drive out of bounds and was on in 5. Sweetser and Jones had almost halved It in 3. The hole Is a par D, a hard tee shot and a long second. The Passing of Knepper. And in tlie corn belt of Iowa, as in Atlanta, the sun has set once more on blasted hopes. Knepper seemed to day to have lost that spirit and that touch, that dash and fire which marked his game while he was repelling the invaders. W. B. Torrance and Cyril Tolley of the British team. With a magnificent Job magnificently done the good ship sank beneath the waves, rammed by one of its own fleet. This is the fifth time that Evans has reached the final, while he has been seml-flnallst nine times. He won the | title in 1916 and 1919. He was also national open champion in 1916. The final, therefore, is to be a battle between a veteran and a member of the younger school. Sweetser played in the championship for the first time in 1919 at Oakmont. He did not qualify. The following year a' the Engineers Club he was beaten by Freddy Wright, who also was one of those who did not make the coveted thirty-two the previous year. Bast year Sweetser was defeated in the third round at St. Louis by Evans. The re sult was 1 up, and this despite the fact that Sweetser had got off to a bad start and had been something like 4 or 6 down In the early stages of the contest. American Golf Seniors Win Another From the Canadians Score Is 24 1-2 to 20 1-2 for Fifteen Men Teams. Toronto, Ont., Sept. 8. ? The United States senior team of fifteen players won their fourth successive victory In tha an nual international match with the Ca nadian seniors' association over the Scar, borough course here to-day, being four points up when the last pair finished. The totals were 24 Hi to 20 '/j. The first seven Canudian players held their opponents fairly well, but the Americana gradually assumed a lead of ten points. Victories by Martin Burrell and Alfred Wright, the last two Ca nadians to finish, helped to reduce the margin to four points. The big game of the match was that between the champions of the two asso ciations. George S. Lyon, Canada, and Martin J. Condon, United States, which was won by the former, 5 up. The pair were even at the turn, having halved seven holes. Each had a medal score of 3.>, one over par. On the homeward Jour ney Mr, Lyon maintained his form at the first nine holes and came in in one less than par, giving him a par round, while Mr. Condon was slightly erratic in his approaching and took 42. Lyon's 70 was the best of the tournament. ' In the afternoon the play was devoted to foursomes, in which the tlnlted States players participated. The cup presented by the American association at the din ner last evening probably will be used as the trophy for the high net for the 36 tolee. The socre : U. S. SENIOR*.

Three Records Broken at A.A.U. Title Junior Meet Charles Foster, Dehart Hubbard and A. J. Plansky Are Responsible for the New Marks?Team Cham pionship Goes to New York A. C. Athletes. Br TED MEREDITH. Three new junior records were estab- | lished yesterday at the opening day'H competition of the National A. A. U. | track and field championshipa at Wee quahjc Park. Newark. These marks were a fair example o fthe fine per formances made by the Juniors. -The team title went to the New York A. C., who with a well balanced squad scored a total of 26 points. The first new marks to bo hung up came when Charles Foster of the De troit Y. M. C. A. marched through the field of the three mile walk in 23 i. dilutes 39 6-10 seconds. He bettered the old figures made by a local athlete, L. Labowltz of' the Pastime A. C.. in IMS by 17 2-5 seconds. Shortly after Foster's figures had been recorded Dehart Hubbard, com peting unattached. gave the tans another shock with a leap of 24 feet 3V4 Inches in the broad Jump, eclipsing the old mark of 23 feet 1 inch made by j Harry WortHngton, former Dartmouth star, in 1914. The third reoord came close to the finish of the meet when A. J. Plansky of the K. o tC. Boston, sprang 46 feet !?% Inches in the hop, step and Jump, wiping off the old mark of 46 feet 7^4 inches held by K. Geist. a local Y. M. H. A. star. Ten thousand fans turned out to see the contests. The weather while not bright and sunny could be called pleas ant. At the opening of the meet a wind was blowing across the track but it did not hinder the athletes and shortly after died away. The track was one of the few disappointments. It had recently been resurfaced and had not had ample time to settle. It' ap peared to be lightening fast before the meet but as soon as a few heats had been run It became very soft and un even at the pole. N. Y. A. C. Victory No Surprise. The victory of the New York A. C. was not a surprise. The Winged Foot Club has been pointing Its athletes for this meet and were expected to score more points than they did. The unat tached athletes were the stumbling block for the local team. So many of the good Juniors were not representing any club or college that a total of thlrty-flve points went to waste In this manner. The best race of the day came in the mile run. W. O. Spencer of the Mis sissippi A. and M. College, finally got to the tape first, but he was very closely followed by William Sullivan, un attached, New York. It looked for the last fifty yards as if Sullivan would nose out the Southern runner, but the latter hod Just enough left to get home. The pace in this race changed hands several times. Not until the last quarter did Spencer come to the front and show the running he had. Before that it looked to be anybody's race, with Mc Dane. the Tenn freshman distance star, a good choice. He led the pack for a brief spell, however, and could not score. Kirby, Cornell star, and wearing the colors of the Newark A. C.. with a i record of 4:19, was favored by many, i but he could not do better than third. Spencer, the winner, is a product of Don Scott"* coaching. Don Is from the same cothM and wore their colors when he made tfie fine mark of 1:54 for the half on the same track six years ago. Bob McAllister la Victor. Bob McAllister, the flying cop or the city's force, came through with flying colors in the 100 yard dash. Bob won hy two yards and was looking at his competitors at the finish. The time, l(i 1-10 seconds, was good considering the soft track. Baltimore Cross Coun try Club furnished the seeond man in the 100 and later L. Clarke took first In the 220 yard run. lllmar Prim, the Finnish American A. C. runner, added another title to his collection in winning' the five mile run. Marvin Rick, Princeton and New York A. C. distance star, ran up with Prim during tho first part of the grind but even his long legs and strength were noc equal to those; of the Finn. The New York A. C. first place men were Walter Gegan in the 440 yard low hurdles, O. Wanzcr in the shot put and Charles Aston in the dims throw. The rest of the points ei:riv through second, thirds and fourths. The middle West and far West sprang somo fine athlets. Fessenden of Iowa, unattached, won the quarter, Crawford of Iowa University took first place In the high hurdles, Anderson of Los j Angeles A. C. was second in the shot and third in the discus and Reich of Detroit Young Men's Club won the pole vault. The middle West also had two of the record breakers to their credit. Foster In the three inile had an easy time with his field. He is not a newcomer to the East but has scored in a metropolitan seven mile event during the last year He looks llke,& real walker, and Is still young enough. 28 years, to look for im provement. He served in France dur ing the war, receiving a wound in the left arm, but the injury does not uffect tho use of that arm in swinging it to advantage as he peda along. The record in the broad Jump by Hubbard came after Dowdlng of Illinois A. C. had ^rst broken tne old mark. Dowding is the Interscholastic record holder and did 23 feet 6 inches yester day. His coach took him out after this and claimed he was being saved for the senior title contest. Baltimore Club Surprises. Tho surprise of the meet was the fine work done by the Baltimore Cross Country Club In finishing second to the N. Y. A. C. Before the meet the Southern club was never considered and certainly not to beat the clubs they did. Twenty points were gained by them through the fine work of Clarke in the sprints, McDonough in the hur dles and Chamberlin in winning the high Jump. This is the first time that a Baltimore club has figured so high up in a national meet. The Newark A. C. and the Meadow brook Club of Philadelphia tied for third place with 18 points. The former competed as a club for tho first time and seem to be on their way to become a strong rival of tho N. Y. A. C. in the future. The Meadowbrook Club was expected to do more than third but furnished some disappointing athletes, men who were far from their best shape. Rogers of this club won his heat of the 440 yard run In 52 seconds and looked to have plenty In reserve. When it came to the f'nal he ran in the lead into the fir.nl stretch but threw up the race when challenged by Fessenden of Iowa who took first in 2-5 seconds slower than Rogers' time. The senior races to-day promise to be even better than the Junior competition. With the track as slow as It was for the Juniors, records in the runs can not be expected but on the field they Becrn sure to come. Ralph Hills, the Prince ton freshman welghtman, threw a scare into the fans yesterday when It was re ported by his former coach, Jim Wen dell, that he was getting the shot out to ol feet. Wendell claims one of the practice shots was measured 61 feet ?' inches which Is a foot better than the world's record. Most of the Junior champions will turn out for the senior meet. In the case of Hubbard In the broad Jump there Is a chance of his scoring a first here also, hied Gourdln. the former Harvard star and record holder at 25 feet 3 Inches is entered and will have all he can do to beat the Junior title holder.

SWEETSER DEFEATS JONES ON MERITS Southerner Is Good, but Goth ami te Is Better in Brook line Semi-Final. By BERNARD DARWIN. Brooklins, Mass., Sept. 8.?If any body had told me that Mr. BoDby Jones, playing his game, would be beaten by 8 up and 7 to play I should have laughed in his face. Nevertheless that Is what happened to him to-day. He was beaten by Mr. Jess Sweetser by a display of golf as lethal in its pitiless power and accuracy as ever was seen. Figures are tiresome things, and I hate that, but they are sometimes eloquent. Mr. Sweetser played twenty-nine holes In four under an average of fours. Granted that the weather and the greens were perfect end that Brookline Is not an extraordinarily long or testing course, tills was a terrific achievement. Moreover, beyond holing one pitch, Mr. Sweetser had no particular luck and did no sensational putting. He simply went dead straight from tee to hole all the way round and putted not brilliantly but infinitely soundly. As to Mr. Jones, he did his best. The run of the green was rather against him and he made, as is only human, some bad shots, but he made many good ones and stuck to his guns splendidly. He was simply crushed and battered to pieces by the irresistible strength of his adversary. Perhaps that pitch that Mr. Sweetser holed had something to do with it. The first hole had been halved in a pedestrian 5. At the second both had fine tee shots close together and right in the middle of the fairway as they continued all day. Mr. Sweetser played the odd and holed his pitch of perhaps sixty or sev enty yards. Mr. Jones made a gallant effort and very nearly achieved the Im possible by holing also. Still, I think it shook him. He came near to taking 4 putts on the fifth, and half topped his pitch at the fourth. Mr. Sweetser rubbed It In for all he was worth and was within a bare Inch of holing another pitch for another 2 at the sixth. Jones O Down on First Nine. At the seventh Mr. Jones took 3 i the green and at the eighth he was stymied rather cruelly after a beautiful little chip which laid the ball stone dead. Mr. Sweetser meanwhile went on and on and on, boiling within# per haps, but outwardly cold as ice and | playing superbly. At the end of nine j holes Mr. Jones was out in 40 and 6 down. Then he pulled himself together and played every single hole homeward exactly as it should be played, but he had to wait till the seventeenth be- j fore he could win one. There Mr. ; Sweetser played a poor approach shot and took three putts. The last was; halved and Mr. Sweetser, around in i 63, was & up on Mr. Jones, who had done a 74. After lunch the crowd was very large ar.d very much excited. They all ap ? parently wanted Mr. Jones to win and signified the same in the usual manner. Scarcely had the ball left his club when catcalls and wild baseball noises rent the air. It was by comparison a very j poor, anaemic kind of clapping that I greeted Mr. Sweetser, but he kept on ? the even tenor of his way and played even better, if possible, than he had done in the morning. Mr. Sweetser won the first In 4. At the second Mr. Jones holed a good putt for 3 and pandemonium broke loose. Mr Sweetser's only retort was a string [ of faultless is, mest of them nearly 3s. Mr. Jonps played up with perfect cour age and temper, but he was just knock ing his head against a stone wall. lie had to win holes and win them quickly and yet he was generally holing a putt' for the half. Mr. Sweetser was out In 35. He made eight 4s and a 3 and got another three by laying his pitch stock, stone dead at the tenth. Then with a steady going half In 5 at the long eleventh he finished the butchery. A more magnificent and remorseless ex hibition never was seen. Evans Rare* Over Kntpper. The other match was even more one sided. Mr. Evans ate up Mr. Tolley's conqueror, Mr. Knepper, and after standing dormle twelve won on the twenty-seventh green. Mr. Knepper, like other young Western golfers, has doubtless lisped the awful name of Chick Evans since he was a little boy In short frocks. He has revered and feared him and has suffered at his hands In Western tournaments. More over, ho was down and out before be started to-day, tired out by his three successive and resplendent victories over Mr. Torrance, Mr. Oulmet and Mr. Tolley. Mr. Knepper's spirit was as willing as ever but his flesh was weak, and Mr. Evans Is far too wise to play down to a jaded opponent. He played like a machine and a horribly efficient ma chine at t!iat. He was round in 71 in the morning and reeled off 4s In the afternoon with automatic precision as long as It was necessary. And so we shall see a final between East and West, for Mr. Sweetser, though I believe born In Kentucky, Is a New York golfer and Mr. Evans Is the hope and glory of the West. Who will win I do not know. Mr. Sweetser will be In front of Mr. Evans from the tee and I i wish him Joy of It. To play the like I all day long to those iron shots of Mr Evans must be heartbreaking work. At the same time Mr. Sweetser la himself an admirable Iron player. If he plays as he did to-day nobody can beat him j and very, very few can even look at him. It will surely be a match worth seeing, but whether It will be possible to see much of It Is another matter. Lady Dilham, 19-Year-Old Show Mare, Dies at Newport Nkwport R. I., Sept. (I.?Reginald Cl| Vand'Tbllt's famous brown mare Lady Dilham died to-day at Sandy Point Farm after an Illness of hut a few days of pleural pneumonia. Lady Dilham was 19 years of age and won th? champion ship only last week at th ? Newport show, defeating also Prim-, s Rhlelor, and being then In fine condition. The mare had won more championships than any other horse In America end had! been owned by Mr. Vanderl>:!i for the last five years. She wag bred by E. D. Jordan of Boston. Her sire was Dil ham Prime Minister and her dam Ele gant III. Lady Dilham was 14.2% In heights' She will be burled on the lawn at Sandy Point Farm, adjacent to the rid ing ring, to-morrow. The mare was much beloved by all the employees of Mr. Vanderbllfs nstatn as well as b> himself, and there will be much regret at her'loss among horsemen In general. There will bo a suitable memorial erected to her memory. Celtic Park Games. The first annual field day and games of the Mayo Football Club will be held at Celtic Park. Long Island City, to morrow. Three league games are sched uled. Junior fgotball between Mayo and Kilkenny, hurling between Offaly and Limerick Bnd senior football between Mayo and International Team Yacht Races to Start To-day America and Great Britain Each to Sail Four Boats Over 12 Mile Course. Br ARTHUR F. ALDRIDGE. The stage is ail set for the battle^for yachting supremacy In the small boat classes between Great Britain and the United States, which will begin this afternoon on Long Island Sound off j Oyster Bay. Each nation Is to be rep- ! resented by four yachts built to con- j form to the requirements of the British i six meter class, and these have been , selected as the best and most repre- j sentative of the two countries. Tho match was arranged by the Seawanhalta Corinthian Yacht Club on this side and with the Roy-il Yacht Squadron and the Royal Thames, Vic toria and London Yacht Club on the other, and the trophy for which these teams are competing is tho British America cup subscribed to by the yachtsmen on both sides of the At lantic, and which was won last year by the British. The start is to be made at 1:40 o'clock, that is the yachts will cross the line at that time, but the warning signal which starts the maneuvering for po sition will be made at 1:30 o'clock. The yachts are then to sail over a course of twelve miles, going to a mark three miles to windward and back, sailing twice over this route. The starting line will be at some point between Cen ter Island and Oak Neck buoys, unless the committee should find it Impossi ble to lay a windward and leeward course from that line, when the start ing place will be shifted. The races will be managed by the race committee of the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club. Colgate Htoyt, chairman; H. E. Boucher, Percy S. Weeks and H. M. Curtis. This com mittee will be on board Vice-Commo dore Frank C. Palne's converted sub chaser, which he has sent from Marble head to assist the committer. The other end of the starting line will he a buoy flying the Seawanhaka Corinthian club burgee, and the turning mark will be a small yacht of the Fish class, which will fly the club burgee and one red ball. This turning mark the yachts are to leave on the starboard hand. At the end of the first round the buoy will also be left on the starboard hand. Teat to Conalet of Six Rncea. Tlie yachts are not racing: to determine which is the fastest but as two teams, and the cup will go to the country whose team scores the most points in a series of six races, three of which are to wind ward and return and three over tri angular courses. It is the first inter national team race that has been sailed in these waters, and will be of more than ordinary interest for that reason. As far as possible, but strictly under the rules of yachting, each yacht will strive ! to hurt the chances of a yacht on the apposing toam. Kach skipper will strive to help his team rather than himself, and there will be much clever strategy [ shown. While they are racing as team and points are scored according to the order In which they finish, several handsome j prizes are to be awarded to the boat I finishing first in each day'a race. These [ prizes have been donated by Vice-Com ! modore C. Sherman Hoyt, Howard C. Smith. Junius S. Morgan, Jr., Albert Strauss, H. G. S. Noble and Philip J. Roosevelt. In addition each member of the winning team is to receive a hand some medal commemorative of the event from Commodore Ralph Ellis. These six meter yachts are attractive, able and fRst. At a distance they all look very much alike, but there are marked differences In model of hull and fn rig, which a yachtsman very easily notes. To the novice, too, there are differences which can be remembered so that one may be distinguished from another. On the British team Reg Is No. 1. The figure Is on the sail, and over it Is the letter K. signifying Kingdom. Each visiting yacht has K on Its sail. Reg is j a white boat, and she will probably use a loose footed mainsail?that Is. It Is loose on the boom, fastened only at the extreme ends. She is owned by Norman Clark Nell and is sailed by Capt. W. T. Nixon, assisted by the owner. Caryl la a White Boat. Caryl la No. 12. She, too. Is a white boat, but has a brown boot top. Her headstay Instead of being a single wire strand Is Rhaped like the letter Y, a new wrinkle In yacht rigging. Caryl Is a Clyde boat built from Fife designs, as is Yacht Cruise Ends at Huntington Bay Club The 30 Footer Banzai Leads Fleet on Last Run. Special DUpntrh to Thi Npw Yosx Hbsai.d. Hunttnotov, L. I., Sept. g?Commo dore Edmund Lang's Banzai led the fleet of the lnterclub cruise Into till* port to-day. It was the final run of the cruise, the fleet coming here from the Stamford Yacht Club. The weather was perfect, with the wind coming from the cast northeast at the start. Later In the afternoon the brSeze hauled to the south, which gave the craft practically a beat for the whole race. The thirty foot division was the largest class to All. Banzai, which was sailed by Capt. "Tod" Currier, won by 59 seconds from 8IIhouetto, the property of R H. Amber*. In the handicap class Commodore C. A. Marsland's Azor again was the first across the finish line. The summary: | New York Y.
