WON BATTLESHIP'S RACE
Victorious in two races, the battleship Georgia (BB-15) arrived at League Island yesterday one hour and seven minutes after the battleship Kansas (BB-21), which started from Cape Cod four hours before.
In making this gain of 2 hours and 53 minutes on the Kansas, the Georgia humbled the battleship Rhode Island (BB-17) even more decisively by "sailing it below the horizon" in two hours.
