By BILt TOBITT Your last chance to see a local boy while he Is still Just that, and not a nationally prominent tennis player, comes this afternoon when Frank Kovacs of Oakland meets Dick Bennett of Berkeley, for the men's state tennis championship at the Berkeley Tennis Club. Kovacs is headed for world fame as a racketeer, starting with the national junior title. which he will win next month. Today he will win the men's state championship as his first major trophy. Such a bald prediction may not be good sense on our part, but it reflects the prevalent opinion around this tennis mart which has NOTICE! Tennis Results And Todayg Schedule Will Be Found an the Fifth Sport Page 4 Record (Cont. from First Sports Page) seen and produced so many Inter national figures. Kovacs' brilliant all-around game, with which he erased the top-ranking John Muno ot ban Francisco in straight sets yesterday, 0-0, 6-1, 8-2, will not be denied as one of the major net of fensives in the country within two years.

But he hasn't the repertoire Kovacs possesses. Here is how Ray Dean (extreme left) of the Olympic Club, formerly of Stanford, ran the fastest 1 00-yard dash of his life yesterday at Palo Alto. Dean came up with a terrific rush at the finish to win by a single yard in the new meet record time of 9.6 seconds. mil illlM . . . 1, -v? ' ' I illH. lllllillflii --" 4 :- -tf '? ' ' J ...

MURIO ON THE RUN It didn't appear as if Kovacs really opened up at any stage. He had Murio on the run and played ac cordingly, forcing the San Fran mark of his career the THIRD best made in the United States this year. Reynolds had to flin the cannon ball that far: (a) to shatter tne meet record set by JoHn Lv man of Stanford In 19.15 hv nn half of an Inch and (b) to defeat Bill Wohle, the San Mateo Junior College strong boy, who got off a tremendous throw of 51 feet men, SECONDS CUT OFF 5.

STUDENT OF FULLER Should she win today, much of the credit is due "Pop" Fuller, who taught this 100-pound bronzed atom how to take advantage of every ounce of her weight In all of her shots. She fights the ball, but she doesn t waste any, punches. Yesterday she waltzed through her semifinal with Elsie Gabel, San Fran- cisco holder of the Oakland women's city championship, to win 6-0, 6-1. That ended Elsie's career of upset wins, having defeated Jacqule Virgil and Eleanor Dawson, both ranked to reach the- reml-finals. Miss Workman toppled Margaret Osborne, national girls' champion in singles and doubles and second seed in the women's singles here, 6-4, 6-3. She has a fine assortment of shots with plenty of speed behind her serves, all of which Miss Orttorne discovered. 6. Ray Dean, a mediocre anrlniar at Stanford, continued to find new speed in his Olympic Club unl-form and won the 100-varrt ria.h In 9.6 seconds. Second to Stanford's Stan Hiserman in a 9.9 preliminary heat, Dean put on a furious finish to come up from third place In the last 10 varda to nose out Tommy Nelson, the tiny Pasadena Negro now running for the Fresno State freshmen. Nelson seemed a positive winner until Dean came up like a madman to win by Inches and also snr.sh the meet record of 9.8 seconds, hung up by Cy Leland of Texas and the Olympic Club In 1931. Little Nelson had previously lowered it to 9.7 to win his heat. 7, Dell FishBack, California graduate on the Olympic Club team, romped through the 220-yard low hurdles in 23.5 seconds ti smash a 10-year-old meet record, the :Z3.8 mark established by Swede Leist-ner of the Olympic Club In 1927. Beverly Gubser, the promising Oakland youngster at Fresno State, won the second heat from Fishback in the slow time of :25.8, and be looked very, very good in nosing out the celebrated Tom Moor., of the Olympic Club for second place in the final. 8. Ray Malott and Bill McCurdy, Stanford's quarter-mile twins, put on their well-known act in the 440. Conspicuous by the absence of Wil liams and Weiershauser, the field found Howard Upton of Modesto Junior College setting the pace for the first 300 yards. Then the Stanford twins moved in front, and Ray won by a slender yard in :47.7. Al Black- man of the Olympic Club, who set the old meet record of :47.9 two years ago, saw nis record tumble . . . from fourth place in the race. BRIGHT SETS NEW MARK 9. Warmed up from winning the louu-meter run at Co m p t o n last night, Norman Bright of the Olym pic ciUD noppecr out of his airplane in time to win the two-mile run in 9:28.8. It is a new record, because it Is the first time the event has ever been held in the P. A. meet. Charley Mehlert, California's sophomore sensation, saved his sprint too long, as usual, and barely nosed out RalDh Throop Of the California Aggies by inches for third place. Les Voorhees of California looked good taking second, 30 yards behind Bright. 10. A (Stanford relay team of Bill McCurdy, Carl Mahurin, Ray Malott and Jack Weiershauser, running In that order, negotiated the mile In 3:12-9. This Is also a new mark, because it Is a new event. The Stanfords ran 3:12.8 at Fresno a week ago tonight. Paul Jacques, anchoring a nondescript California relay foursome, lost third place to Upton of Modesto J. C. a few yards from- the tape as San Jose State came in a surprise second. And that's the story of the ten new records. An error in the official program credited Johnny Hewitt of Stanford with a new meet mark In the high hurdles. His : 14.8 surpassed the :14.9 record created by Swede Leistner of the Olympic Club and equaled by Charley Raster of. the Olympic Club in 1930 ... but can not be the eleventh record on the books ss long as memory lingers on the 14,5 race run by Sam Klopstock of Stanford in 1935. EASY FOR ROBINSON Bright was not the only Olympic Club star to win glory and wrist watches both at Compton and Palo Alto within a space of 18 hours. Elroy Robinson of the Olympic Club, who lost a heart-breaking 800-meter race to Ross Bush of the Trojans in 1:52.1 by INCHES last -night at Compton, easily won the 880-yard run today in 1 minute, 52.6 seconds. Only one of Ben Eastman's best records, 1:50.9, kept that from being a new mark. Charley Miller of California, his closest pursuer, was fully 25 yards back. . Big Sllnger Dunn, who won the shotput but lost the discus to bis old pal Kennle Carpenter in Compton last night, again won and lost. Dunn" copped the ponderous 56-pound weight throw with a toss of 31 ft. 3 in This was a. tragic blow to Jim Mc-Eachern, the veteran San Francisco policeman, whose best effort was seven inches short of it , . . Dunn used so much energy winning this event that he failed to reach 50 feet in the shotnut and was fourth and could spin the J discus no rariner man 158 feet which gave him second place behind Phil Levy's throw of 161 ft. 6 In. The fourth Olympic Club athlete to shine in both meets was Johnny Mottram. The former Stanford javelin thrower was the only one who could fire the spear over 200 reel ana nis margaia was only 18 incnes. lvOwen Told of San Jose State, who has surpassed 215 feet this year, could not do 197 feet and was second Not a single University of California javelin socker, not even Doug Lehman, could place. None reaching 175 feet. You can count Archie Williams OUT of the Pacific Coast Copter-ence meet Saturday. The great Olympic champion told me after the race: , ARCHIE DISCOURAGED "I did not pull any muscles today... but my right leg, behind the knee, pained me so badly that I could not possibly run more than 100 yards of the 220 final. I thought I was ready but I wasn't. It's the same Injury that made me quit at the same point of the 440 against the Trojans on April 10. "I don't know whether I'll go south with the team for the Conference meet... it's up to Brutus Hamilton. No, I did not have a single workout between the Fresno Relays and today's Bteet. I will be working with, the East Bay Water Co. all next week but will try to get a couple days work in during the week. If my leg doesn't get a lot better, it would be useless for me to go south. Yes, it's very discouraging, INJURY PAINFUL "I felt fair during my first heat of the 220 although the leg pained even then. I was just cnastinr during the heat. In the final I tried to put on the pressure but the leg buckled." -Williams' star has set. His career is all behind him. Weiershauser 1s the champion of 1937 thart Williams was In 1936. He will never be the quarter-mile specialist that Archie was, a real world champ. . .but he is a greater all-around athlete. Perhaps Archie will not be missed... since Loren Benke of Washington State's great dark horse team broke 47 flat in the 440 today in the Northwest. The meet, encompassing 18 races and nine field events that required 4 hours 30 minutes to compete, was the finest carnival of competition witnessed on the Coast this year. Unlike past meets at Kezar Stadium, not on record was lost to the wind. Sweltering heat and a slight breeze that never reached three miles per hour, gave the athletes ideal conditions. DISA AND DATA Random notes-Two alternate ' watches clocked Weiershauser in 20.8 for his record furlong. Ted Ellison, the eccentric San Mateo Junior College ace, was timed in 21.4 for second place and Stan Hiserman 21.5 for third. . . . Cecil (King) Cole's lap times of his miraculous one-mile run were 61.0, 67.0, 67.0, 61:1. And he still had plenty left in reserve, so much so that he ran the 880 later. ...

' Th e c ooperatlon of your best mar ksmen v would also ,?, K b e greatly N m ; anoreciatcd. V i . If you see BOB DWYEB, youf way clear to grant this modest request, please have your Navy out her next Sunday with orders to tak pot shot at ill speed boats. J like first to give1 them warning, but after that show 'em no mercy. If you can do this little thing you can depend on the unanimous support of all the fishing clubs of the Bay District next time your party runs for election. Take any bright Sunday in season for instance. Hundreds of boats containing hopeful anglers are scattered all up and down the placid reaches of the rivers and sloughs and each and every fisherman has high hopes of hooking a large striped bass. Then comes the speed boats and the fishermen might justas well toss their bait overboard. But they stay hoping that the gas will give out, or that the boats will sink, or that someone will take a shot at them, or something. But the owners of the darned speedboats seem to own all the gas in the world, for they keep racing up and down from early morning, until dewey eve and fishermen go without even a bile. The infernal racket the speedboats make chase the fish way up in the mountains, out in the, bay, or some place. Anyhow the bass are where the fishermen are not On one day I have particularly in mind there were only three fish taken a nibble as they were rush ing away from the noise. Of course it is perfectly legal for speedboats lo'scamper up and down and splash the anglers but, if you have to keep your muffler closed ashore, why not at sea? These striped bass are temperamental you know, and they like to go along in the even tenor of their ways without a basso-profundo gas engine scaring them out of their wits, while the high staccatto of the anglers' cusses rise to tie high heavens. Maybe if youan't spare the Navy you could let the fishermen have a few mines. Why it has become so bad that when fishing is spoiled and the anglers try to grab a little shut-eye, the racket of the darned speedboats keeps them awake while their waves rock the humble rowboats something awful. Of course as you ride in battleships all the time you don't know how difficult it is to sleep in a rqw-boat under the best conditions, but I would like to have you experience the task of trying to sleep in one of them while speedboats are tearing up and down and rocking your boat and splashing you and everything. Yon might not believe It but one -party of anglers went forth a few Sundays ago not to fish but ' to seek a quiet place away from their wives where they could play a little poker and take drink or two.' These fellows were of the richer kind of anglers and had a bigger boat so they could set a table up to play cards on. Every time one of them would get a very big hand and was looking like he was going to pick up a few sheckles toward expenses, one . of those darn boats would shake the beat so bad a table leg would fold up and the hands would all be spilled and no one had a chance of collecting the pot. And reports that the fellows took turns kicking in the folding table legs on such occasions la something that I can!t believe. See what you can do about It. Mr. Manager.
