Adds Almost Forty Miles Per Hour to
S Record of Italian Who Took
Cup From America.
(By Associated Press)
VENICE, Italy, Sept. 26.-Flight
Lieutenant S. N. Webster, in a Super-
Marine Napier S-5 monoplane, today
smashed all existing seaplane speed
records in capturing the famous
Schneider cup for Great Britain. Italy
had held the cup for the past year as
a result of its victory over the United
States at Hampton Roads, in 1926.
Lieut. Webster averaged 453.282 kil-
ometers, or 281.488 miles, an hour, as
compared with the record of 246.496
miles an hour established by Major
Mario de Bernardi of the Italian
Royal Air Force, who won the race
last year in the United States.
