Is Winner Of All - England Tide At Wimbledon. - COLA MERMEN Net Site Chosen South Bend, Ind., July 3 (AP) The Western Junior and Boys' Tennis Tournament will be on the Notre Dame Courts July 26-31, Walter M. Langford, Irish tennis coach, announced today. The tournament, sponsored by The Western Lawn Tennis Association, is being held at Notre Dame for the second consecutive year. Langford will serve as tourney manager. Louise Brough Also Shares In Two Others Brown-Mulloy Beaten. London, July 3 (AP) Led by Louise Brough, America's women tennis stars joined Australia's men in sweeping four Wimbledon championships today as the famous Fortnight, dating back from 1877, came to a close. Miss Brough was a busy girl. Already American singles champion, she added the all-England title to her collection by beating Doris Hart of Miami, Fla., 63, 86, in a hard-fought final, and lent a brilliant hand in winning both the women's doubles and mixed doubles. The blonde from Beverly Hills, Calif., thus became the first woman to capture all three Wimbledon titles open to her since Alice Marble swung the "hat trick" as the British term it in 1939. Rules being what they are, Louise had to sit impatiently by during the final of the men's doubles an incredible affair in which the Australians, John Bromwich and Frank Sedgman, triumphed over Gardnar Mulloy of Miami and Tom Brown of San Francisco, 15 7, 7 5, 75, 97. Miss Brough and her long-time partner, Mrs. Margaret Osborne duPont of Wilmington, Del., won the women's doubles by trimming the defending champions, Miss Hart and Mrs. Patricia Canning Todd of La Jolla, Calif., 63, 36, 63. Then partnered by Bromwich. Louise topped off a big day by beating Miss Hart and Sedgman in the mixed doubles, 6 2, 3 6, 6 3. The men's doubles was an ab solute dilly. Mulloy and Brown flatly refused to win it, though they had every chance. The Australians finally accepted the silver tray, which was handed to them in the Royal Box by the Duchess of Kent, while Mulloy stood by looking as though he wanted to cut his throat. The two Americans leds 5 2 in the third set, and still managed to lose it. But that wasn't the half of it. They led again 53 in the fourth set and lost six points to give the Aussies a life. Again they led at 7 6 and won the first three points against young Sedgman's service in the fifth set. They lost the next five points as fast as they could slam the ball into the net.. Two games later they wandered dazedly off the center court. LEAD BOOSTED By Bucs' Gustine Over Pafko For Third' Base Assignment. Voting To Select Starting Lineups For Star Fray To Close Monday.

Hopkins fought an uphill battle to square the match on the 35th hole after being six down at the halfway mark. He blew his chances on last green, when me missed a 10-foot putt and took a one over par five. Harris, who had his iron shot to within 35 feet of the pin, went down in two putts for the victory. The Texan, with most of the gallery of 300 fans pulling for him, pushed his drive into the rough on the 36th hole. His second landed in a trap below the green and he blasted out to leave himself the 10-foot putt which he missed. ONE MORE FOR KRAMER.
