Courageous' crew celebrates their victory over Southern Cross for the America's Cup with champagne. The American yacht
won four straight races from the Australians. Today's margin of victory was by far the most decisive of the series; Courage-
ous had won the previous three races by times of four minutes 54 seconds, one minute 11 seconds, and five minutes 27 seconds.
The clinching victory was achieved with a whopping margin of seven minutes 19 seconds.

NEWPORT, R.I. (P) - Coura-
geous, a thoroughbred among}
sailing yachts, made it four
straight triumphs over Austral-
ian challenger Southern Cross
yesterday and retained the 123-
year-old America's Cup Trophy
for the United States.I
As was the case in her pre-I
vious victories, the long, lean,
12-meter sloop made it look
easy.
Her victory margin in the
final sail of the 24.3-mile
ocrean course was seven min-
utes, 19 seconds-one of the
worst beatings a challenger
has taken in the series in re-
cent years.
Southern Cross lost the most
time, perhaps, after rounding
one of the markers, when the
crew set a spinnaker, which
caught around a shroud, and
then were slow in cleaning it.
"It's incredible, really," said
one on-shore member of the
Aussie delegation, who already
was packing his gear even be-
fore the finale was half over.
"None of us will be welcome
back home after this. Cup fever
has been running high among
our countrymen, much of it Ij
ter's 12th home run and a pinch
single by Bob Hansen produced
two seventh-inning runs, leading
the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2
victory over the Cleveland In-
dians last night.
Mike Hegan followed Porter's
homer with a double. After an
intentional walk to Dave May,
Hansen's single scored pinch
runner Bobby Mitchell.
The Indians had taken a 2-1
lead in the fifth. After Oscar
Gamble's 19th homer, Buddy
Bell reached first on an error

fear because of our overcon-
fidence."
Thus ended in humiliation a
$6 million effort by Austrian
millionaire real estate mag-
nate Alan Bond to wrest the
oldest sporting trophy in exis-
tence.
Bond was asked if he thought
the whole effort was worthwhile
after spending between $6 mil-
lion and $9 million.
"If 100 million people have
learned more about Australia
and this flag," he said, placing
his hand on the Australian ban-,
ner he had just draped over
the edge of the table, "then
yes, it has been worthwhile."
Bond's Southern Cross, like
Courageous, constructed ofi

aluminum, was touted to be the
strongest challenger ever to ap-
pear in waters off Newport
Harbor.{
But she was no match for
Olin J. Stephens' Courageous,
a 10-ton sliver of gleaming
white. The American defender
astonishingly brushed aside
the challenge by earlier mar-
gins of 4 minutes, 54 seconds,
1:11 and 5:27 in the first
three outings.
Not only that, she showed her
supremacy in all areas of sail-
ing, including eyepopping per-
formances by her 11-member
crew.
Thus it was that she had
hardly cleared the finishing line
before champagne began to

The two boats returned to
their piers in the Newport
Shipyard to a wild reception
with cannon fire, firecrack-
ers, horns and whistles, and
for t h e Australians, t h e
cheers of a mass of their
fans from Down Under.
Since 1958, when the 12-meter
designs raced for the Cup for
the first time, American de-
fenders have shut out their op-
position three times and in two
other challenges lost only two
races, both to Australians.

he did succeed in stealing two bases before the night was
over, his 108th and 109th this season. These swipes vaulted
him past Eddie Collins into second place on the all-time list.
