Outsail American Sloop,
Hanging Up Records j
Experts Gasp
NEWPORT. R. I., Sept. 19.—
(£'P).—Thomas Octave Murdoch
Sopwith's Royal Blue challenger
for the America's Cup yesterday
won her second race against Har
old S. Vanderbilt'3 Rainbow,
speeding over a 30-mlie triangu
lar course »n record time.
The Endeavour, outsailing the
American sloop in every leg of
the race, hung up a series of rec
ords that last night had the yacht
ing world gasping.
She went over the course in
faster time than it has ever been 1
done in an international cup race.
She negotiated the windward leg
more speedily than any defender
or challenger has ever done in
official matches. She was the first
foreign sloop to win two races in
any match since Shamrock IV.
back in 1920, and the first chal
lenger ever to win two races
without a fluke.
The race was the more amaz
ing because she had trouble at
the start. No sooner had Presi
dent Roosevelt, comfortably quar
tered on Vincent Astor's Nour
mahal, waved a cheery greeting
to Endeavour, than her difficul
ties betran. She had set her big
main sail and run up her heavy
genoa. Suddenly, two minutes
before the starting signal, a rent
appeared in the minney jib, at
the clew. It grew wider and the
canvas flopped in the wind. There
was no time to douse it and hoist
another. Sopwith went across the
line with the torn sail still flying,
while all the admirals shook their
and muttered.
The good fortune that has
watched over the Britisher, how
ever, clung to him through this
trial. The rip was not serious ■
enough to force him to change I
his sails and thus lose valuable
minutes. So away they went on
a broad reach, for the mark 10
miles away.
Vanderbilt put his boat over in
the windward berth at the start,
and was presumed to have the ad
vantage, but Sopwith overcame it
within the first half hour of sail
ing, and thereafter he was never
They were footing it well in a
fresh breeze, and the big fleet of |
bouncing boats that danced after
them found it difficult to keep i
the pace. The black smoke of the I
excursionists became a distant
haze, and the only accompanying
ships that watched them round
the first mark were the officials,
coast guard, navy, and a few of
the greater yachts like Nourma
hal and Corsair.
Half way over the first leg
there was speculation among the
unofficial afterguards as to
whether or not they wouldn't
crack the record for the reach.
But about that time the Britisher
ctocided to take down his reaching
jib and immediately there was
confusion' aboard Endeavour. The
canvas went overboard and for
minutes it seemed the crew were
fighting to haul it in. After an i
exasperating delay, her quadri
lateral jib, the now famous "Greta
Garbo" sail, was finally set.
Vanderbilt followed this ma
neuver on Rainbow, but had less

had trouble with their sails. Go
ing into the beat, on the second
leg, Endeavour clung to the wind
ward berth, but Rainbow ap
peared to be picking up some dis
tance. There was a difference of
15 seconds at the mark. It looked
as though it even might be closer
at the next buoy.
One of those brief tacking
matches came shortly after they
went away on the beat. Rainbow
and Endeavour made a short dou
ble tack, squared away, and then
returned to the port tack. The
operation never gained an inch
for Vanderbilt, and it was clear
that the Royal Yacht Squadron
boat had much the advantage.
She was working steadily to
windward of the defender, and
footing fast.

Even Break In Double
Header Best They Could "
Do On Tuesday
NEW YORK, Sept. 19. (UP)
—BH1 Terry's Giants made no
headway in their pursuit of the
National league pennant Tues
day when they gained only an
even break in a double-header
with the Cincinnati Reds.
The Giants had expected to
walk off with both games against
the tail-end Reds and gain valu
able ground over the runner-up
Cardinals who were idle. This
split left the New Yorkers still
tnree and a half fames ahead of
St. Louis, but it actually lessen
ed the Giants' chances because
it left only 10 more games for
the Giants to play, while the
Cards still have 14.
Chick Hafey broke up yester
day's opener between the Giants
and Reds by smashing out a
home run in the 10th with Jim
Bottomley aboard. This snapped
a scoreless deadlock resulting
from a tight pitching duel be
tween Freddy Fitzsimons and
Benny Frey, who allowed seven
hits against Fitzsimmons' six.
The Reds won, 2-0, but in the
nightcap the Giants came back,
4-2, Mel Ott drove out his 35th
homer in the fourth, and his
mates clicked off three runs in
the sixth, when with the bases
loaded, two walks and a long fly
accounted for the tallies.
Wet grounds at Boston caused
postponement of Tuesday's Cards
Braves contest. A double-head
er will be played today.
Meanwhile the Cubs and Phil
lies divided a twin bill, Chicago
winning the opener, 7-3, but los
ing the nightcap, 8-1. Don
Hurst led the Cubs' 12-hit attack
on Johnson and Moore in the
opener, with four hits in five
tries, and Gabby Hartnett con
tributed a homer. In the sec
ond engagement, Phil Collins
limited Chicago to five hits,
while the Phils collected 11 off
Bush and Root. Hack robbed
Collins of a shut-out with his
first homer of the season.
Brooklyn trounced the Pir
ates, 9-4, hammering out 17 hits
at the expense of Swift, Meine
and Grimes, six of which were
bunchd in the seventh for four
runs. Emil Leonard allowed the
Pirates 13 safeties, including
Paul Waner's homer in the sev
enth with two aboard.
"Schoolboy" Rowe and his
fireball lessened considerably the
Yankees' slim hopes for the
American League pennant when
he pitched Detroit to its second
successive shutout over New
York, 2-0. This stretched the
Tigers' lead to seven and a half
games. The Tigers 'now need
only four of their remaining 11
games to take the pennant, even
if the Yanks win all of their re
maining 10.
Rowe allowed the Yanks six
scattered hits in chalking up his
24th victory of the season. The
Tigers collected sevea off Red
'Ruffing, including a homer by
Hank Greenberg in - the fourth.
Rowe's single in the fifth drove
i^ the second tally.'
Cleveland took two games
from Washington, 4-5, after a 12
inning struggle, and 19-6. This
stretching the Indians' hold on
third place. In the opener. Earl
Averill's single in ^the 12th
brought in Milt Gafctzer with
the winning run. Gflatzer had
tripled. In the second game,
the Indians hammered Thomas,
McColl and Armbrust for 13
hits, while Lloyd Brown and
Winegarner held the Senators to
eight. Cleveland made five runs
in the fourth, after Washington
had done the same in the third.
In one of the freak games of
the season. Boston's Red Sox
emerged from a 10-inning battle
with the St. Louis Browns with
a 2-1 victory, although Buck
Newsome allowed the Sox only
one hit, while the Bjpwns gath
ered 10 off Wes Rerrell and
Rube Walberg. Two walks, an
error, an infield out and a field
ers choice accounted for one
Boston run in the second.
Strange's single tied the count
for St. Louis in the _ sixth, and
Boston won out in * the 10th
when Bob Johnson's single, th%
only Sox hit of the game, follow
ed two walks.
Connie Mack's Atnietics blank
ed the White Sox, 6-0, behind
Bill Dietrich's six-hit flinging.
Not one Chisox runner reached
third base. The A's made 12
hits off Kennedy and Tietje, in
cluding Haye's homer with one
on as part of a five-run uprising
in the eighth.

The Proposed
3. The Principles of the Revision
For a proper understanding of
the Revised Constitution one must
bear in mind the principles upon
which the Corr.rnwsion acted in
drafting" it. The first of these was
that no changes were to be made
I in the existing law that were not
I deemed necessary. As a result
: many provisions of the old Con
! stitution have been brought for
1 ward which the Commission would
not have incorporated otherwise.
! For instance, the provision of the
i old Constitution that the Legisla
ture might by general or special
tact repeal the charter of any cor
i poration was brought forward be
! cause it was not though of any
; special importance to change the
; provision; and it was feared that
any change might be construed as
j having some ulterior purpose. The
I same reasoning brought forward
1 the provision which gave escheats
j to the State University. In line
with this principle, a provision was
!inserted in the Revised Constitu
tion that the provisions of the
j old Constitution, except in so far
! as inconsistent with the provisions
! of the new, should remain in ef
i feet as statutory law until changed
by the Legislature. This will pre
, vent any violent change in gov
ernment, as a result of the adop
J tion of the Revised Constitution.
| ine Legislature wm n»vC
I to make changes in local govern
l mer.t and in courts inferior to the
Superior Courts, for instance; but
until it makes such changes the
present system will continue. As
to such matters, the Revised Con
stitution simply removes the limi
tations which the old Constitution
imposed on the Legislature.
The second principle upon which
the Commission proceeded was
that only general principles of
governmental action should be in
corporated in the Constitution,
leaving the details to be worked
out by legislation. The importance
of this is that, while principles are
eternal, their application must
change with the changing condi
tions of social life. This applica
tion is a matter for the Legisla
ture, the law mak:ng body of the
State; and, if such legislative mat
ters are incorporated in a Consti
tution, it results that the legisla
tive ideas of the generation that
drafts the Constitution are im
I posed upon succeeding: genera
tions and hamper the State and
its development. This is one of
the principal defects of the old
Constitution. It attempts to con
trol taxation by legislative provi
sions incorporated in the Consti
tution itself, with the result that
the development of a taxing sys
tem in accordance with the chang
ing needs of the times has been
rendered impossible.
A tHird principle is that the
fundamental law of the State
must be considered as a whole and

its provisions balanced ifcainst
each other. The Federal Consti
tution, which is a model for all
time, has endured for a century
and a half as a result of the wise
system of checks - and balances
which it embodies. The Revised
Constitution makes use of this
system of checks and balances,
and contains a number of provi
sions which would not have been
inserted in the absence of other
provisions which are balanced
against them. It vests in the Leg
i|iature, for instance, full control
loT taxation and local government;
ib«ut against this general grant of
piower is balanced the veto power
!of the Governor. It was thought
!that any attempted abuse of pow
*r by the Legislature would be
checked by this exercise of power
by the Governor, who represents
all the people and all the sections
of the State. The State Board of
Education, a branch of the Execu
tive Department, was given power
to supervise and administer the
state school .system; but it is pro
vided that this power shall be ex
ercised subject to such laws as
shall be enacted from time to time
by the Legislature, thus enabling
the Legislature to prevent any
abuse of power .on the part of
the board.
All of the provisions of the Re
vised Constitution have been thus
carefully drawn with the view of
providing a safe and harmonious
scheme of government. Change
has been made in the old Consti
tution only where deemed neces
sary; the changes made have em
bodied general principles which
will leave the people free to make
such changes in the laws as the
changing conditions of the times
may demand; ^tfl'lhe powfeA test
ed in the various agencies of the
government have been balanced
against each other so as to pro
vide a system of government
which is at the same time flexible
and safe.
Those who have had their fears
aroused by considering isolated
provisions of the Revised Consti
tution will find that these fears
