NORMANDA WAS AGROUND.
While coming down the lake from Detroit early yesterday morning the yacht NORMANDA, owned by W.E. Scripps, head of the Scripps-McCrea League, went aground on the rocks east of the dummy light at the north end of the Donnelly breakwater, and remained fast for several hours until released by the lifesavers with the assistance of two tugs. Aboard the NORMANDA, were Mr. Scripps, his wife, his mother; Vice Commodore Fred Still, and secretary George W. Graves of the Detroit Motor Boat Club, and several other friends of the skipper. Mr. Scripps was on his way to attend a meeting of the Great Lakes Power Boat League, of which he is vice-commodore.
