Off Newport today, weather permitting, Austrailia will make its third attempt -- this time backed by a monied real estate sportsman who admits he has an obsession second only to Upton's, The contestants in this 123- year-old match sailing series are Southern Cross, the Aussie challenger, and Courageous, selected by the sponsoring New York Yacht Club as the Cup defender. Courageous, which survived a stiff trial series with Intrepid, successful defender against Australia in 1967 and 1970,, was rated a slight favorite to win the best-of-seven series. The first race around a triangular, 24.3-mile course was to get underway at 12:10 p.m. |EJ)T. If there are no delays, "and weather conditions permit, there is to be a race each day tfitil the issue is decided. .^Forecasters had predicted moderate southwest winds, rfnld temperatures and no fog.

There is a chance, though, that halfback Freddie Douglas will play. Douglas practiced Monday for the first time since spring. It had been reported Sunday that Douglas would not suit out for the game.
