CAROLINA GiUD PROSPECTS ARE RATED AS FAIRLY GOOD INine Lettermen Losrt by Graduation; Capable Replacements ? Chapel Hill. Aug. 2.?With the i opening practice for the 1927 juaeson just one month away, i football prospects at the Uni versity of North Carolina here appear to be jiairly good. The material is expected to be as good as last year's, and may be just a bis oeiter. But any improvement in ma terial will be partly offset by this , year's schedule which, with Ford j ham as a newcomer, is expected ' to be harder than < last season when the Tar Heels lost only to Tulane and Duke, j Nine lettermen will be losi, by graduation. They were Dick Buck and Buck McCa,rn. ends; : John Trimpey. tackle: Van Webb and Charlie Mclver. guards; Dick Dashiell. quarterback: Wal : lie Dunham and Bobbie Stewart, [halfbacks; and Jim Hutcljins, , fullback. The ab-sence of Buck and Hut j chins will be most keenly felt, i There are fair replacements for Trimpey. Mclver. and Webb. Coach Ray Wolf's chief prob lems will be to develop capable ! guards and tacklefc and to fill ! Buck's post a\, left end. Junior lettermen coming up for I their final year of competition ! are Co-Captain Andy Bershak. | end. who made the Associated , Preys' second-All-American team last season; Henry Bartos and Jeff Dermid. tackles; Ed Palmer and Bruce Smith, guards; Pete Avery, center; Crowell Lr.tle, quarter; and Co-Captain Tom Burnette, halfback; ard Art Ditt, fullback. Demid and Smith may i not return. Sophomore lettermen of 1936 ! returning are Steve Maronic. guard. Bob Adams, center, and George Wa-.son. halfback. Tony i Carnugle. a 1936 sophomore, who i gave much promrse as a back be lee, it was all over. Endeavour II lost way, had to ease off to pick up speed, and the day was lost. She seemed almost listless on the way in. her heel down as she plied ..through a roughening sea, unable even to make a race of it. Once Ranger got the wind in her teeth. Vanderbilt wheeled her into the lead and held it. Ranger worked to windward on the first leg in an hour and 47 minutes, travelled the second in an hour and came home in 55 minutes. Sopwith took Endeavour II up the bay to Bristol immediately af ter the race to have her bottom looked over. Speculation was as varied as it was vague as to what happened. It was believed the Briton's keel may have snagged I one of the lobster pots which dot j the racing lanes; and it was also ! rumored Sopwith has ordered a ' new reaching sail for lightei ! winds. It was expected he would I change ballast fore he was injured laut season and lost to the squad then, will also be back. The freshman team last season was one of the weakest in several years.

WINGS OVER THE ATLANTIC CAVIS CUP COMES TO AMERICA A=T^R 10s YEARS1 ABSENCE, TWE LAST FOUR OF WHICH WERE SPENT" IN EN< J ^ Cojr? 1137 by VnJted Featura Syndicate. Inc. I _ | < Newport, R. I., Aug. 2.?(U.R)? Saga of sail: Prescott Wilson is back In town. He is treading again the streets of this seaside town where he was born. He doesn't slap the cobbles'ones with his barefeet now. He rolls over the narrow stree's that rise from Brentons Cove in his shiny limousine. Wilson, the erstwhile waterfront urchin, has returned with a sta tus envied by many of the society fok who make Newport famous. He now is welcomed to the most exclusive estates, he dines on the most expensive yachis. Men who mean most in the United States phone him for advice. Because Presco.t Wilson, at 40, is Amer ica's best known and most success ful sailmaker. He is the man who broke through the "British" mo nopoly of making sails for Amer icas Cup sloops, and other racing craft. Wilson is here with nine men from his New York sail loft. He has 51 more employes in Manhat an. He is here at the command of Harold S. Vanderbilt skipper of lie Ranker. Vanderbilt ordered him here to ride herd on the great white wings which Vander bilt hopes will power his defend ing yacht Ranger to victory in the eurren international series. Wil son made six of the sails that Jtan:,cr is using. The great American sailmaker ccks younger ? han his 40 years. He is a medium sized fellow with reddish-blond hair and a closc Ciipped reddish blond mustache. He lives sails, and his wife says he had a "one tack" mind. Wilscn says, "This current Americas cup scries really resolves in o a battle of skippers and sails. Yacht hulls have been developed to about 95 per cent of perfection. And the hulls can't be changed In this scries. Crews have been tr&ih ed lo the ultimate, and they can't 'oc changed either. So, the series becomes a question of sails and what use the skippers makb of those sails under air conditions governing each race." PrescoLt always refers to wind as "air" because, for the 22 years he has been in the sail making business he has studied aerody namics. When Prescott was 10 years old lie shifted to New York wi li his parents. He wound up his school education in Brooklyn's Poly Prep, intending to advance later to a university and study engineering, but he accepted a Job during one vacation in a sail loft. He's been in the sail making business ever since. The man who owned the loft died, and Prescott bought the loft. Today his business is so flour ishing that he has difficulty in finding enough experts to hlfre. He makes sails ranging from the $15 blobs for dinghies to the $16r 000 ballooners for some class..J sloops. He sells them from Hofio lulu to Norway. The secret of flis success is simply this: his sails make a boat move faster than any others. "I know my sails are faster," he said. "Because I design them all. And I supervise the manufacture of them from the smallest to the iargest. Sometimes those sails are so large that I have to hire the 71st regiment armory in New York to spread them out and sew them. I figure I know more about sails making than any man alive and yet, I actually know little about it. "We are just beginning to un derstand what can be done with sails. I say this although men have been using sails to power boats ever since they could weave a sail from reeds thousands of years ago. We are just beginning to understand what can be done with air." ' Because of Wilsons "vague" un derstanding of masts and air, he ; went out Friday night and bet ? $500 even money that Vanderbilts Ranger would win four straight from T. O. M. Sopwith's Endea- : vour. Wilson is reported to have made 1 a huge quadrilateral jib of revolu tionary design that lapped clear ' back of the mast and formed a I sort of air funnel about it for Vanderbilt. Prior to the series this 1 sail never had been broken out or seen except by Vanderbilt and his crew and the maker. Here's what Wilson says it costs 1 to provide sails for a class J Am- f ?ricas Cup class sloop. Each yacht < must have at least three main- < sails of different cloth weight, 1 costing $13,500 each, two each of t ordinary jibs at $2,500, $3,000 and $3,500, two or three parachute 1 spinnakers at $5,000 each, two I staysails at $2,008 each, and five ! or six Genoa jibs, balloon spinna- 1 <ers .etc., ranging from $4,000 to 1 $15,000 each. * It costs a lot of money to pro vide those great big white sails on < i blue sea or red sails at sunset 1 but the men who want those sails 1 ;an afford them. And Prescott Wilson, who used to dig clams on ' Newport's waterfront, is the guy I jvho can make them "better than J inybody else." _ i All-Star Can! Being Arranged for Bonis ?
