Lyle Parks, owner of the U-7, today said he will enter the Diamond Cup race in Coeur d'Alene June 28-29.

Parks' boat [Hull #5607], which ran as Sunnee Brand last season, said his craft will run in Idaho under the name of Question Mark.

Parks, who lives on Lake Sammamish, said he is trying to rouse community backing for his boat and, if he does, it will run as Miss Sammamish in the Gold. Cup on Lake Washington?
