(UP) —Five men sat with grim lips and worried eyes behind clcscd doors this morning, tlvc men from Australia, .with but one thought. In a brief hour or so two of them would go out on Ihe sunlit court of the Merlou Cricket Club and make n third desperate attempt to break America's defense of the Davis cup. With high hopes amounting almost to complete confidence they had journeyed across the seas, won their wny into Ihe challenge round and then suddenly,.surprisingly met a defense in (ho first two .singles mulches that lefl them almost stunned. One more defeat and (heir quest would be In vain, Iheir efforts futile, their great dreams vanished. And so Ihe hroad shouldered, gray haired Sir Norman Broskcs, who had helped capture the cup for Hie laud that lies down under, '25 years ago; the slender, dapper Harry Hopman who had brought his team on disappointing quests fcr the cup before; lall, tennis-wise Jack Crawford who liad .campaigned through the years; stocky, bronzed Adrian Qulst and the fair-haired, youlli- lul Jack Brorowlch sat together with grim lips and worried eyes. • But their thoughts were not of the desperate and disappointing situation in which they found themselves through the triumphs of Bobby Rlggs and Fr'onkie Parker of the United StnteS In the singles matches yesterday. Tliclr tlioughls were not of tennis at all, but of another desperate and disappointing situation even closer to their hearts. They sat silently yesterday and listened to the clear, calm, courageous voice that came over the radio and filled the room In which they sat with sad, significant words; Ihe voice of their king, George VI, Pilots Are Champions For 1939 JONESBOKO, Ark., Sepl. 4.—The Caruthersvllle Pilots defeated the Joncsboro White So*,)! to o nod 11 to 9 |j> Iv.'o games 'here Sunday annexing the 1039 Northeast Arkansas League lllle. The Pilots won the first'half and by winning the second half did away with Hie necessity for a p| ay . off -for the league title.

Johnny Kelly, Noire Dame captain and end, left the campus niter one week as a rreshnmn De- cause he was homesick. His lolks packed him right back on the calling his subject. 1 ! to n bigger battle—war. i Sir Norman Brookes had heard and heeded that call before and his war-wenry eyes were clouded and troubled. Jack Crawford, not too old lo answer, and Jack Bromwich, not loo young, listened with an attitude of wondering uncertainly, perhaps planning. But the oilier two ot the five who sat together knew Iheir course. Harry Hopinnn and Adrian Qulst were being called to their trench mortar companies as surely as though they had received written orders. This could mean only one thing lor them. And so Ihey sat and llsleneil as their king echoed the drcndfulb' decisive words that Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain had spoken earlier In the day—'This country is now at'war with Germany." Ant! then, without any hysterics, without even raising his voice, tlie king ceased speaking and over the air, into the little reom where five man snt together came the Inspiring strains of ,"God Save the King." They mechanically rose to tliclr feet, without n word, without even a look, simply through mutual emotion. And there they stood with slimy eyes, their heads held high and their faces grim. AS the last notes died away only silence filled the room. And silently the five departed, two to lake the o^urls against Jnck Kramer and Joe Hunt, Hie youthful American doubles learn. This was no time for n fight talk. There had been enough talk of fighting already. No cue had to tell Qiiisl and Bromwich how much depended on them. Their king nl- r'eady had told them and all their countrymen. And when they came out on the court, before the eyes cf the people who packed the stands, they were greeted 03' a thunder of applause which held a greater significance [ban the applause that greets merely two foreign tennis players on United States soil.
