Approved For Release 2001/03/07 : CIA-RDP96-00792R000700590001-6 The good life unfolds on sea and land. Sails furled, a pleasure fleet anchors in Newport Harbor off Beacon Rock, home of Mr. and Mrs. Felix de Weldon. The mansion, built between 1889 and 1891 for yachtsman Edwin D. Morgan, shows classical Greek influence in its court and marble columns. Ida Lewis Yacht Club, on the spit at upper right, takes its name from a doughty spinster lighthouse keeper who in the late 1800's earned fame for her many daring rescues in stormy seas. The light is now part of the clubhouse. Duel at sea: The Australian challenger for the America's Cup, Dame Pattie, cuts the choppy waves of Rhode Island Sound as she tries to overtake the United States defender, Intrepid. The American yacht defeated Dame Pattie by almost six minutes in the initial 28-mile race and swept the series with four consecutive victories in September, 1967. Newport has played host to the 117-year-old classic since 1930. p:pove`;F-dr,,,Releasb,.,~'Q01 /03/07 MASSACHUSET , BURRILLVILLE ", II F4ORT Manville Paseoa v " ' gp Harr~sVille SMITkiFLD1 Dorr Mftheonument marks t%e I '~ r~ ?4 ~'" ~.~-?- Z95 j"- end o1847 rebellio, Ashton .--'aimed-atsecurmg the yi0t2 NORTttI1 CENTRAL a ? `.,~erkel fa all men Q(the Stkte. sTAJE AI'aeRY L L, i~ n a :.uyonR MuNuME SMI HFiI="LA I L?nsdal@ i i Geor-g}avllle? + IiSayidsWiie~ ~, GLOGESSTER ~ Greetl~uitle} ?E, n P d_ Jt' ROgV1 yf v*, ..OASSAc ffi SCENIC LILLWPUT wedged between Massachusetts and Connecticut (inset), Rhode Island measures only 37 miles wide and 48 long.
