AKIN, Presidfnt of Board, Big Crowd Turns Out for Regatta At Barfield Sunday A large crowd lined the river bank sat Barfteld Sunday afternoon to wateh the water regatta planned by local motorbMt enthusiasts. The races planned were no' staged, due principally to the absence of one or two of the more powerful of the outboard motorboats, it was stated. Eric Bollard's "Baby Bootlegger" was easily the most powerful boat of the .group. Because of the apparent difference In the power of the several boats the races were not staged. J. W. Meyer, with a trim little boat, powered by a small motor, had probably the fastest craft on the. river with tlie exception of Bollard's boat. Ed Rice and Roland Wolforl had n boat as did D. Simmons.
