(By Hugh S, Fullerton) American yachting from the entire Atlantic seaboard, studying the construction of the yachts that are to defend America's cup and the tuning- up performances of Shamrock: IV., be- lieve th'at, If America's cup is to re: main on this slue, It will be due ib American seamanship rather than to tho construction of the boats..' showing of Vanite and Resolute In the trial races has been far from satisfactory to the sharps. They de- clare Vanite faulty in rig rather.than in her lines, and a boat that would have to have all the luck of the weath- er to win. Her performance in the third race was freakish. In heavy wa- ter and a heavy gusty blow, she buck- ed aud heeled. Resolute, built close to the old Her- reshoff lines, they claim Is much bet- ter under all weather conditions. Vantte's victory in tlie Hist clash was due, they say, more to the luck of the weather than, to any sailing superiority. Besides, Resolute was aulty in rigging, and the errors .were corrected after the race. Lipton's fourth Shamrock is koep; ,ng them all guessing. 'Tho English critics declare her a freak and claim she will either be an immense' sue cess or .a dismal failure. She is of .he skimming dish type, and the sharps declare she violates a score of the accepted rules yacht.building. One yacht sharp writes me from New York that he believes either of :he last two yacht defenders could leat Resolute, and that he is pinning Is hopes on Reliance, which has been delayed by changing rigging from en- tering the trials. Sir Thomas and many of htS- friends are enthusiastic. They have built a t to meet the conditions ot the contest. Heretofore the British critics have complained of conditions, that they favored Amercan boats. Now Sir Thomas has -built a boat that is; more extreme than any ho ever has sailed against. It looks as If he 'vvfll have batter than even on measure- ments and allowances.

OLYMPIC COMMITTEE TURNED DOWN AMERICAN PROPOSAL Paris, June International Olympic Congress loday rejected a motion by Cplond Robert ,M. Thomp- son, of New'York; to allow in each track and field event twelve entries and six contestants from each coun- try. This was supported by- lill the American delegates aud by Sweden. The, other countries objected to the motion Because so large a number of entries and contestants would, they said, be too expensive for the smaller countries to maintain and send to the games. Colonel Thompson urged that.coun- tries with large populations ought to have more representatives in order to give proportionally as great opportunity for competition. Never- theless, the Congress voted favorably on the motion of Franc Reichel of France, to limit each country to teams" oi six, four of them to com- 'pele and two alternates. The Congress accepted a proposal I by Rev. Robert Stuart De Couroy- Lallan, chairman of the English.
