Prospects for a second straight all-American men's singles final in the Wimbledon Tennis championships dwindled Wednesday as top-seeded Frank Parker and third-seeded Gardnar Mulloy came out in the bottom bracket of the tournament draw. x-arHer, lop-raniting u. s. amateur since Jack Kramer turned professional, was pitted against D.

Segura held command over Kovacs through the first two sets when the Californian was never able to break his opponent's service. But in the third game of the third set, Kovacs cracked through to assume a 2-1 lead and he grew progressively stronger from that point. Kovacs will play the winner of the Riggs-Cooke match in the semi-finals. The other bracket sends Jack Kramer of Los Angeles, second seeded, against Wclby Van Horn of Germantown.

She defeated Nancy Porter of the women's college of the Uni ersity of North Carolina by an easy 6 and 5 score. Two other leading contenders for finals Friday are Marilyn Smith, 19, of Kansas and Alice O'Neal, 22-year-old Rol lins college senior. Miss Smith defeated Corinne Major of Stephens college, 4 and while Miss O'Neal scored a 1- up decision over Carol Clark or Miami (Ohio) university. Miss Smith and Miss O'Neal meet in today's upper bracket semifinal. Miss Lenczyk will play the semifinals against Barbara Canine, of Western Michigan college, who defeated Roseann Shaffer of Rollins college 1-up in 19 holes. Shirley Spork of Michigan, last years champion, was dropped from the running Tuesday in the tournament's only upset so far Miss Lenczyk was last year's runner up. t Cam pan Connects. Campau's single drove in the final run in the eighth. York forced Jackson, who had walked, then stole second. Virl Minnis' running catch of Borkowski's liner to left held up the runners, but Campau cracked a liner to center and took second when it was fumbled by Davis. A faster man than Campau which would be almost anybody could have scored on Lang- good's subsequent single, but Bill stopped at third and Alfano tapped into a force play. Camjiau's slowness also cost the Bruins a run in the sixth, when they let three hits go to waste. York's second hit was voided as Borkowski grounded into a twin killing. Campau doubled to the left-field fence and Langgood lined one into shallow left. Pitcher Bob Kuhl-man, replacing Hack as the third base coach, flagged down Campau, and it was too late to get him started again when Minnis fumbled the ball. The inning ended immediate ly when Kohout bore down to strike out Alfano. A doubleheader has been scheduled tonight to make up a game postponed on the Bruins' first trip here. l Totjsl ,14 1 1 27 1 0 aFanncd for tetania in sixth.

But that year he was niatche for a 10-rounder with Al Ettore of Philadelphia, who was comin along quite well and who was in line for a scrap in Madison Square Garden. Ettorc's handlers wante to get another win for their man and picked on Walcott. Jersey Joe was scraping out! an existence for himself and family at any odd jobs he could get, fighting as a sideline, artd taking engagements without training or with very little of it. He worked only nine days in preparing for Ettore. Walcott cut him up, outboxed him and gave him a terrible beating for eight rounds, but dropped to the floor from exhaustion In the ninth round and lost on a "kayo." But that was the end of Ettore as a topflight fighter. He did not get the bout in the Garden. WEST SIDE LE.4C.rK. flft-and under Hawball.) Hillbillies 2, Hawkeyea 1. Did-Ita 13, Fort Des Moines 1.
