past summer went very far
to stimulate and encourage

Wilmington and Southport. I
This fact was recognized the |
past week by Robert Strange,
the new Commodore of the
Yacht club, and one of the
most outstanding public spirited
citizens of Wilmington.
Two weeks ago Mr. Stj

succeeding Walter W.
Storm. Commodore Storm's
administration fathered the
big race of the past summer
and Mr. Strange, as
a member of the club, was
one of the most active of the
many who contributed to the
success of the event.
Commodore Strange, writI

Club the past week, called
attention to the wonderful
cooperative work in putting

Among the officers and
crews of the boats that
have been passing, extreme
interest is being manifested
in the proposition and effort
to get a yacht basin at
Southport. Men big in the
business of the nation have
been promising their hearty
support in the undertaking.
They say Southport will become
a great mid-way stopping

Another source of local
interest is the big game
