Saturday, September 2, 1944 McNeill, Greenberg Singles Tilt Is Endurance Contest NEW YORK, Sept. 2. (JP>— Four of the seven matches played yesterday in the 1944 men's and women's tennis singles championships yesterday went to the limit, with the outcome depending upon endurance as much as skill. Playing the tournaments first five- match, Lieutenant Don AIcNeill of the nnvy, 1941) champion and the second-seeded favorite, had to go all out to eliminated fifth-seeded Lieutenant Seymour Greenberg of the army, twice national clay courts champion, 6-3, 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 8-6. McNeill, although in good shape, obviously was lacking in the fine condition that conies from tournament play and gave away many more points through errors than he earned by accuracy before he finally called on his reserves to pull out the long fifth set. In the women's division Defending Champion Pauline Betz had to play three strenuous sets to defeat Mrs. Virginia Wolfenden Kovacs, f!-4. ti-S, ti-4, as both players" suffered from leg cramps in the last set. Third- seeded Louise Brough, rtmnerup to Miss Bet/ the past two years, out- steadied the somewhat smaller Mary Arnold to win, 3-6, 6-3, 8-6, as Miss Arnold weakened after leading 3-0 and holding a 40-0 advantage on her opponent's service in the final Ret. Chunky Dorothy -May Bundy proved too strong in the long run for Doris Hart, who has the strokes but not the court covering ability of her rivals, and won 5-7, 8-6, 6-4. The day's straight set victors were Top-seeded Pancho Segura of Ecuador, Sergeant Frankie Parker, always rated as a title threat but never a winner, and the second- seeded woman player, Margaret Os- bornc. They didn't get much competition from Major A. II. Carver, Jr., Charles ~.V. Oliver and Girls' Champion Shirley Fry, respectively. Browns Fumble in Scant Lead; Tigers, Yanks Go Up BY JACK HAND By AHfcot-iated Press Pitching miseries in St. Louis gave the Detroit Tigers and New- York Yankees a chance to pass the stumbling Brownies over the weekend as Luke Sewellis battle-worn leaders saw their once-robust lead fade to two skimpy games. Only seven St. Louis pitchers were able to go the route in the last 28 games and the staff showed serious signs of disintegrating, with Bob Muncrief its only "stopper" still sidelined. Nelson Potler, 32-year-old veteran, who was picked up In the draft two years ago when his major league days were supposed to have ended, was able to halt the last previous slump in Detroit a week ago. Last night at Sportsman's Park, Potter was batted off the hill and solidly spanked for seven hits in two innings as the Brownies fell before Detroit,' 6-:!. Hal Newhouser draped the Browns over the ropes with a six-hit job for his twenty-second victory, one less than teammate Dizzy Trout who grabbed the series opener in relief. Even a St. Louis triple play couldn't halt the Tigers, who surged past New York into second place. Although the Bengals and Yanks were virtually tied for the runnerup spot, Detroit had a percentage point edge, .540 to .539, and was only one game behind the Browns on the losing side of the ledger. Boston kept within easy striking distance 2 l 'z games back and could move to in within a half game of the- top todays and tomorrow's Ramos. Joe McCarthy's Yanks blew a chance to sneak up right behind the leaders when they bowed to the last- place Washington Senators, 10-7, after muffing several chances to win. Roge Wolff cracked an 11- ganie losing streak at Jim Turner's expense in a relief roll?. Boston had to go hard to top the troublesome Athletics, 4-3, with the help of Jim Tabor's thirteenth homer as Joe Bowman earned his eleventh decision over Don Black. Chicago's Joe Haynes won his own game with a t\yelfth inning single to shade Cleveland's Al Smith, 5-4 in a night tilt. Fritz Ostermueller allowed 11 St. Louis hits but scattered the blows for his twelfth win with the help of Babe Dahlgren's two-run double and Frankie Gustine's single in the sixth. Max Lanier failed in his bid for win No. 18. Bucky Walters' attempt to become the first National league pitcher to capture 20 games missed fire when Chicago's Paul Erickson took a relief verdict over Cincinnati, 3-2. Boston trimmed the Phillies twice in a twilight double-header. 3-2 in II) innings on Damon Phillips' single and 7-4. Ira Hutchinson and Al .Tavery were the winners over Al Gerhauser and Vern Kennedy. Brooklyn's Art Herring stopped New- York for the second straight time, 8-1, on a four-hitter, beating Harry Feldman. —l.'aliriiriiinn-.VKA T.-lpphoto, TWILIGHT TEAR BEATEN BY VIENNA—Twilight Tear, Warren Wright's 3-year-old filly, hailed as "horse of the year" after winning 11 races in a row, is beaten at Bolmont Park by William Woodward's Vienna in turf upset ranking with defeat of Man o' War by 1'pset In IIHU. Twilight Tear was 1-20 favorite in the sixty-fifth running of $23.700 mile and a quarter Alabama Stakes. SENATORS NIP N. Y.

PAYERS TAKE SEASONJROWN AUDIENCE COLLECTIONS AWARDED STAR CLUBS Tulare Recreational Club Meet Local Stars Tonight Boasting a lineup oC players even stronger than the Korna Wine Niners, which caine down here a few nights ago to slap the pars off an aggregation of Bakersfield All-Stars, 5 to 1, the Tulare Recreational Ball Club will meet another, and choice, team of local baseball athletes tonight at Sam Lynn Park at 8:20 or thereabouts. Tulare will have several professional ballplayers on the diamond at game time, including (lie bespectacled Vic Lombard!, property of the Brooklyn Dodgers; Bob Elliott, owned by the Washington Senators; Mallory, of the Los Angeles Angels, and Larson, of the Pacific coast Portland Ducks. Available for mound duty will be Drilling-, a Tulare high school kid who has an astounding record; Grimstead, who worked through six very fine innings in that Roma AVine business on August 23, and Lombard!, scheduled to start at center field, but who can come into the center of the diamond in a hurry if and when needed. Other men on (lie Tulare include Busch, third baseman; Pennington, right fielder; Cox, first base, and Beiden, catcher. All of them are right smart semi-pro players. Several oilier players of note will be along, some for the ride, some to piny. For the All-Stars, Bakersfield will loss up its must formidable athletes. Demaree. the rubber-armed pitcher of the Cubs, and Oyloe, dependable curve-ball hurler of Ihe X. O. R. Merchants, will get the pitching call. McAtee, 19-year-old prospect of the big leagues, will be the receiver. Left-bunded .Tim Brown will be at first base; bull-necked McFarland will be at second; iron man Leonard Francis will be; at short, and Me- Daniel and Dial will alternate at third. Titsworth Barton. Briggs and Harper have been chosen to represent the outfield. AVe have been predicting ball games all this season. In only one have we been wrong. Tonight looks like a sweet spot for the fans. Playing in a torrid session of softball contests that marked the finals of the season, the Pioneer Mercantile and Bakersfiold Building Materials clubs, unpretentiously plodding along in the 1'ee AVce playoff, unexpectedly turned up to show in one of the highlight games of the .season. Pioneer Pitcher Kavern hold the Builders down to a low hit level and only 4 runs, while the Pioneer club piled up 7 runs to take the Pee AVee championship. Battery for the Pioneers were Kavern and Steel and for the Builders, Gallegos and Lewis. Turning on a reserve power generated through the season, the Union Pavers flattened out the Presbyterian squad by the score of 7-1 in a run-away spree. Except for a break in the fourth inning, when Sharpe allowed ti hits, Die pitching was well performed by both Sharpe and the veteran Leonard Francis who shared honors on the mound by consistent strikeouts. Paying respect to a mighty good club, it is to be noted that the city champs have come through like the champs they are by nature and skill. They have been on hand to thrill fans and demonstrate diamond art throughout and have lost but two games in the entire season which has been crammed with good plnying by good teams. To top last night's finals with cream the last week's audience collections were divided between the season winners as follows: Union Pavers, 45 per cent, $7f>.9B; Presbyterians, 25 per cent, $42; N. O. R. A. Oirls, 10 per cent, $1(i.X;(: Peacock Dairy, 10 per cent, $16.8S, and Pioneer Merchants. 10 per cent, $lfi 88. Checks were awarded to the winners at the conclusion of the games by Gus Vercamen, chairman of the Kern county baseball committee. t JEFFORDS DUPLICATES MAN O' WAR—AVith an array of victories back of him, Pavot'awaits the Saratoga 2-year-old fixtures at Belmont Park and the coming, in late August, of John Marseh's Arlington Futurity winner, Free for All.
