A match which created a great deal of interest locally on Wednesday after- noon was a go-as-you-please race- between Professor Beaumont. the well-known swimmer, and Mr CL Felix, the landlord of the Tudno Hotel, Llandudno, the course being from the Great Orme Tram- way Station, around the Marine Drive to the starting point, a distance of nearly six miles. The conditions were that the pro- fessor was to have fourteen minutes' start, i.e., a minute for everv year in the difference of age of the oJ respective com- petitors. Shortly after three the "Veteran" started to the cheers of the assembled crowd, which must have numbered over two hundred, and made his way in fine style in the direction of the Happy Val- ley. After a lapse of fourteen minutes Mr Felix, who weighs about eighteen stone, "peeled" and quickly followed, accompanied by encouraging cheers. When the competitors were partly round a telegram was received in the town from the Lighthouse that the second starter was doing part, of the distance on the steps of a landau, and this fact, of course, gave the Professor the race, who completed the course in the very good time, age being considered, in 1 hour 16min. 35secs., his arrival at the winning post being greeted with loud ap- plause. Mr Will Owen, Mostyn Street, was judge and timekeeper.
