With the Pacific Coast Yachting Association behind the San Francisco- Tahiti race, scheduled for next June, the forthcoming ocean classic of all yacht racing bids fair to be a far greater success than even dreamed by its original sponsors, a group of mem- bers of the San Francisco Yacht Club, headed by Commodore John C. Piver and Captain L. A. Norris. Admiral Albert Soiland, of the Paci- fic Coast Association, was present at a meeting held in the office of Commo- dore Piver at San Francisco last Sat- urday, during which he told the local committe that the Pacific Coast Yacht- ing Association is squarely behind the Tahiti race and would give it all pos- sible assistance and encouragement. This is taken to mean that Southern California Yacht clubs will now ar- range their schedules for 1925 to per- mit of their deep-sea craft participa- ting in the 3400-mile race to the South Sea. Entries are also expected from Portland, Seattle and the Atlantic Coast. The local committee, which met with Admiral Soiland, is composed of Com- modore. Piver, H. A. W. Dinning, Win, G. Morrow, Alex Swanson, Francis Betts Sinith, Carl J. Rhodin and Vir- gil Shaw. As stated previously, it is almost a certaimy that there will be at least six schooners from the San Fran- cisco Yacht Club entered in the Tahiti race, with definite announcement that the Mariner, Elois and Idalia will par- ticipate. Others mentioned as strong possibilities are the Shawnee, Nancy Lee and Aurora. That the race is al- ready proving enticing to yachtsmen heretofore given over to cru:ser-type yachts, is borne out in the announce- ment that George Kohn is casting about for a schooner, while Carl Hen- ry is also making pointed inquiries re- There is but one book for genius-- Namre.--.Madame Deluzy.

DO YOU KNOW THAT-- Ants can really swim, rowing with their six legs as if they were a six oared boat and steering to the right or left to avoid obstacles.
