The tJcrman repre sentatives signed -Jjie coal protocol drawn up by the allied representatives at ,8:4."! o'clock last night, tlieiebyset tjiitg one. of the most difficult ques tions vihU'h has come up in the pres ent discussions. Signatures were affix 'd on the document after a four-hour session at the Villa 1'raineusc, one hour of which was spent by the Ger mans in a cabinet consultation in a-i adjoining room. There was a conflict over introduc tion in the protocol of the menace of occupation of additional German er ritory after Oct. 15, next, if German coal deliveries were not up to the stipulated quantity 60U0,000 ton by that date. The allies decided to drop this clause of the protocol be'nw the signature line. Then the Germans objected to the preamble, which declared that the de cision set forth in the document had been taken in common accord by the allied and German delegations. The Germans contended it was not by com mon accord, but by sole will of the allies, that any further occupation would occur. At this juncture lr. Fahrenliach, the German chancellor, sent for three of his cabinet colleagues, who were at the German headquarters, and called a cabinet meeting. Ah hour elapsed liefore Chancellor Kahrenbach and Foreign Minister Simons appeared at the conference room. After an ex planatory speech by Dr. ' Simons, all the delegates signed the protix-ol.

The Harvard stadium was a crucible of competition to-da in which the coun try's athletic speed and strength were tried out to determine who should represent the United "Hates at the Olympic games in Antwerp. Incidental to the Olympic trials ttie national A. A. V. championships for 1920 were at stake. Every man who will carry the Stars and Stripes at Antwerp was forced to submit to the test, the committee having announced that not even athletes of " proven worth now in Kurope could be designated, and the. result was a congress of stars from all sections of the land. The high standard of their combined efforts was shown in the trials of yesterday when, although no record was broken, more men attained ranking performances than ever before. To-day with everything of speed, of strength and of mental effort to give without need for reserve, it was the expectation of director Jack Moakley and other Olympic officials that the winrjers would produce- several new records for this country, and possibly for the world. The leading sprinters of America have been the leading sprinters of the world for years and a select group was primed to day to at tack the mark of 0 3-5 seconds for 100 yards held jointly by Dan Kelly and Howard Drew. The latter, after sprinting for the past decade, and six years after he made his record.. quali fied again yesterday in an impressive exhibition of a man old in the game as sprinters go, nesting youngsters wm. sought to match their youth against his matured strength. Another veteran of other athletic campaigns, and one of the few who carried the keys at the Stockholm now ready to seek honor against the world at Antwerp was "Ted" Meredith, who came out of re tirement to win his heat in the quarter mile run yesterday. Thcs athletes," together with Tad dock and Kirksey, the sprinting stars of the west, were the objects of prin cipal interest to-day, with Joie Ray, the little runner of the Illinois A. C, regarded as America's greatet amateur athlete of the day. Fay, present champion at the half-mile and the mile; decided not to defend his half mile title in order to put his every effort into a race against the field and against the record in -the mile run. The mark he had to beat was four minutes. 12 3 5 seconds, the fatet mile ever run by "man of which there is record. It was set on the stadium in a specially arranged race( by Xortnan S. Tabcr of Brown university. In the other runs, in the hurdles and in the field events were athletes w hose past performances pre-aged close approach to evicting records, and all the inilntrtion wore fur a team which will maintain at Antwerp American prestige won at previous Olympics. Actual selection of the athletes for the team probably will le announced tomorrow.

J., July 17. Sir Thomas Lipton's challenger Shamrock IV, and the American cup defender, Resolute, found nothing more than a cupful of wind and a flat sea in which to engage o the second race of the America's snp match when they towe l out to the starting line at Ambrose Lightship just before noon. The yachts sloshed and wallowed in the ground swell and their sails flapped lifelessly in the dead air. The regatta comfbittes signalled a postponement of the race until later iu the day at 15 minute intervals. No signs of wind were observed in any quarter, and even should a tait be made in the triangular race the skippers who have handled coastwise ships along these shores declared that no finish could be made within the lime limit of six hours given for any contest.

July 17.-An effort to reestablish the heaver on the streams ami meadows of the White mountains n-uittry from which it long since disappeared is being made by the society for the protection of New HampslitireVrcsts.

J., July 17. A wind of three knots' strength from t'i? northeast was blowing at 8 o'clock this morning when the crews of the cup sloops began preparations for the dav'a race. It was a fickle, fitful breeie. Cap tain Burton cast a searching eye sea ward from the deck of the Shamrock to observe wind and wave prospects. "The Americans say that the British weather is all samples and no bulk," he said. "But on Thursday we had rain, hail, squalls, calms and cloud bursts. Now what have we to-day! The wind gauge at Sandy Hoow was doing barely three knots an hour and liie faint breeze ailed to r utile the Jersey ground swell that was running off shore. Weather indications prom ised a slow race, though beacli-comb-T ers said the wind probably would haul into the southeast by the time the sloops reached the starting line. A southeast breeze would give them a leat to w indward on the first leg of the triangular race, a broad reach for the second and a close reach home for the third leg. A slight hare lay over the sea, which shimmered under the sun burning brightly in the dear sky. , Shamrock and Resolute tugged light ly at their moorings. Alow and aloft on Ixith rscere, minor weaknesses dis closed on Thursday have Wen correct ed and both skippers hoped a fairer test of sailing ability would be shown on Sandy Hook racing fanes to-day than was found in Thursday's Iluky breeres. Shamrock was the first to get her mainsail up. It. Happed idly in the light air. The challengers crew also sent up headsails in Hops. Shamrock will not carry in to-day's race the Nicholson jacket, designed to prevent backdindage from the mainmast. The cup committee informed laptain Bur ton that if Shamrock carried the jacket in future race she would have to be remeasured, and the jacket is stowed away in the redd of the tender Killar ney. Captain Burton and Drigner Nichol son said this morning that five rairs wa not an adequate test for the Amer ica's riq. "Wr have had one race; we won it in an accident," said Captain Burton to an Associated Press correspondent, "and still I'm looking to to-day's rai to obtain some idea in the resce!ivc sailing Minls of the two contenders. Sir Thomas thfft "even if you lose. you have won." Sir Thomas is- said to have told friends here that he will challenif again if Shamrock IV fails to lift the cup. "I'm not the least unhappy," said Robert W. Emmons, 2d, managing owner of Resolute, as he watched the crew take the cloths off the main sail. "I have seen nothing to change my opinion that we have the better boat We will be at the line within a short time now with no worry over the fact that the other fellow has won a race. Breaking out a jib Shamrock dropped her mooring buoy at 8:22 and moved slowly out the Sandy Hook point. Th wind was very light and she gathered little headway as ahe hauled seaward Resolute was still at her moorings. There was a scattering of specta tors along the Jersey beaches and hcadlanes as the racers made ready for the start. Resolute at 0:.2 had kited a big club topsail and prepared to drop her mooring in the horseshoe. Meanwhile Shamrock IV had set her staysail with two headsails, mainsail and small club topsail was tacking lazily to port against the feeble northeasterly breeze. She had but little way upon her as she passed by the Sandy Hook spit. (Hit of the northward from the Long Island shore a large bank of fog passed slowly seaward and it was hard to dis cern the fleet of excursion craft as they poked their noses out of the bot tie-neck narrows that lead into the lower New York bay. The Shamrock looked like "a painted ship upon a painted ocean." She was barelv in motion and her big white sail contrasted" sharply with the dirty fog that lav behind her to the northward Captain Burton finally gave up the ef fort to get to "the lightship under his own sail and at 10:52 o'clock took tow from the tug. At 10:15 a. m. stray airs, most "t erly, were ruffling the sea around the lightship. The air was very clear and weath er prophets predicted more wind from the eastward at noon, which -A-ouid give the yachts a beat off the Long Island shore, a reach toward the Ter sev shore and another reach to the finish. Resolute dropped her mooring ouoy at 10:21 anil took a tow from a tug for the starting line. The raw. if Bailed under conditions prevailing at that time, promised little more than a drifting match. The wind was feeble and hardlv sufficient to belly out the, kites of the challenge and defender. Soft spots showed here and there on the sea and the sky was clear and cloudless, with no signs of wind anywhere. At 10:30 it was a flat calm at the lightship, with no breete in sight from any direction. A long sleepy roll was making in from the southeast. At II a. m. the two yachts in tow accompanied by an excursion fleet, wiih cutter ahead, were running out to the lightship. The weaier continued clear and the air lifeless. , The regatta committee announced M 11:20 a. m. that the time allowance which Shamrock must give Resolute would remain at six minutes, forty sec onds for the 30-mile course.
