So despite, despite, Jones' tough luck with the racing hydros he had little to complain complain about. As seems to be the case with several of the bout club's regat- PS, the stormy wpsther threatened o halt the water carnival altogether, altogether, and made it rough going T or both the boats and drivers. The rough waters forced the last three racing events to be run off inside of the harbor Instead of the longer ake course. Sprinkles of Rain A few sprinkles of rain spattered down on the spectators during the water show portion of the carnival, carnival, but it failed to dampen the spirits of the participants who put on a spectacular performance. Despite the stormy weather and choppy waters, there were no serious serious accidents, although Herb DeWeese, DeWeese, commodore of the boat club, Hipped over out In the lake while competing fn the C racing and D stock hydroplane class. However, the worst spills of the day were taken by Elmer Smith on the aquaplane and his daughter, daughter, Mrs. Norma Wright, on the water skllb. The indeslructable, 50-year-old Smith went flying off the board while traveling around 80 miles an hour. He hit the water and skimmed over the surface cartwheel fashion. fashion. Fortunately, he escaped in jury and continued on with the show. Mrs. Wright, a flaxen-haired dare-devil, also took a mean spill as she hit the water face first with terrific force while traveling lick ety-split on water skits. She also returned to action in the true tradition of the "show must go on" and teamed with her father to give the spectators one big thrill after another. In fact, to many of the spectators, spectators, the water show part of the carnival was the most interesting of the whole program. Wes Knudsen and his Explorer Scouts from the Oak Hills LDS ward received high praise and much applause for their act as did 11-year-old Glenda Wright for her water-skiing and Roy Knudsen and Kloyd Wiles for their comedy act Although Jones was the only double winner of the regatta, ,Wes Knudsen scored a first, second and third for the day. He won the F and C runabout event, placed second in the C-racing and D stock hydroplane race and finished third in the C, DI E service runabout class.

Starting in the west, the Giants are in fourth place, 9 1-J games behind the Dodgers. Between New York and Brooklyn are the Phillies and Milwaukee Braves. But the Giants with Lockman their bal- ance wheel—have the distinction of being the only outfit that has not lost ground to the Dodgers since the trade deadline of June 15.
