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
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
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
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
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
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. From twenty-five feet

hard at that. The ban came out and
lay on' the lip.
It was Interesting to note how Evans,
coming on behind, won this hole from
Knepper with a 6. 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
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 :

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
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
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
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. The

JONES ON MERITS
Southerner Is Good, but Goth
ami te Is Better in Brook
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.
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

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 [
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
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
