MUNCIE STAR. SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 7, 1946 Defending Tennis Pa rk e r Elim in a ted by Bro wn VI Champion i Upset Is One of Greatest in Game's Histo Forest Hills, N. Y., Sept. 6 (U.P Tom Brown, Jr., of San Francisco, who learned to ignore odds on the battlefields of Europe, faced them unninchingly again today to knock ueiendlng- Champion Frankie Par ker from the U. S. tennis cham pionships and score one of the greatest upsets in tennis history, - Hitting the corners with the ac curacy of an expert rifleman, the 23-year-old veteran ""overpowered the two-time champion and Davis .up star from Los -Angeles, 6-3, 6-4, 6-8, 4-6, 6-1, to enter the semi finals against Gardnar Mulloy of Miami. Mulloy Drops Segura Mulloy earlier defeated 'Fran Cisco Segura of Ecuador, 4-6, 6-4, 12-10, 6-3, as another Miami star, Doris Hart, gained the women's finals by halting Mrs. Mary Ar nold Prentiss of Los Angeles, 6-3, 6-2. But the highlight of the day came late in the afternoon as Brown, ranked sixth in the tourna ment on his comeback play at Wimbledon this year after his army discharge, knocked off the top seeded Golden Boy from Cali fornia. i With a blazing service and amaz Ing placements that brought the crowd of 8,000 to its feet continu ally. Brown swept into a two-set lead before the battling Parker tightened to square it at two-all. But then, when the big blue chips were on the line, the kid from .California came blazing back. He poured in those placements again with all the power at his command and the king was dead. For Parker it was a bitter end ing to two years of success after thirteen previous years of disap pointment. He had flown back from Guam in 1945 to take the title for the first time and then held it again last season in a war depleted field. Now he has been preparing to turn professional, held in check only by a loyalty to the game and the call to represent the United States in Davis Cup play. Brown Keeps on Rolling But Brown wasn't concerned vth the champ's ambitions or his reputation. He had looked at tougher odds in Europe. So calling on his uncanny placements and lobbing, he broke Parker in the eighth game of the first set to scent victory. He was down, love-thirty, in that ninth game. but came roarinsr back .to hold service and win 6-3. The boy with all the battle stars kept right on rolling in the second set, too. Brown, never ranked nationally and seeded sLxth only on a mild reputation made at Wimbledon, took command on a Parker double fault to break service in the third game and ran out the string for a 6-4 win and a two-set lead. Parker called on all the shots which had made him so successful in the past and battled through in the next set 8-6, after having taken a 4-0 lead only to see it melt.. Then he won the fourth set 6-4. But Brown once again gambled with those unerring placements down the sidelines. The payoff came as he broke through Parker's service in the fourth and sixth games and a smashing 6-1 triumph in the final set. Thus the virtual unknown boomed into the semifinals against Mulloy. The Miami star, also a "Davis Cud team member, had troubles before downing Segura. He dropped the first set but moved back for the next three and victory. Winchester Grid Coach Addresses Kiwanians Winchester, Ind., Sept. 6 Arnold Tyler, who will coach Winchester's new football squad this fall, spoke to Kiwanians at their noon meeting on his plans for the coming football season. After a thorough drill in fundamentals, Tyler said, his squad of twenty-five will meet B teams- from schools which have been playing football. Next year, Tyler said, they will meet varsity teams. - Guests at the meeting were Raymond Tanner with Merrill Nichols, Byron Anderson with Lloyd Waltz, Tony Sharp and Wayne Hinchman with Philip Wesner, and Paul Strather of New Castle, with Charles Cooper.

Cards Boost Their Margin Over Dodgers St. Louis, Sept. 6 CP The St. Louis Cardinals climbed back to a two-and-a-half-game lead over the idle Brooklyn Dodgers tonight by shading the last-place Pittsburgh Pirates, 7 to 6. Pittsburgh trailed by five runs at the end of the fourth inning but rallied with three runs in the seventh when Johnny Beazley" tired and let what might have been the tying run get to second base with Bill Cox's double. But with two out Van Robays popped to Schoen-dienst. Even in the ninth and trailing by one run the Pirates threatened as Cox, with one man away, doubled to right center and tried hard to stretch his hit to third. Harry Walker's throw relayed by Schoen-dienst to Kurowski cut down the threat. PITTSBURGH AB. R. H. O. A.

May's $10,000 "world championship" golf tourney as a substitute with the miseries, but statistics cast him a slight favorite in the unique four man showdown at Tam O'Shanter course tomorrow and Sunday. The 36-hole; winner-take-all bat tle brings together Nelsan, U. S. Open Champion Lloyd Mangrum, British Open-Titlist Sammy Snead and Herman Barron, winner of the year's biggest jackpot, the $10,500 ail-American purse, also contributed by Promoter May. - May's "world" contest originally had the winner of the P. G. A. meet booked to appear, but the newly-crowned titlist, Ben Hogan, declined the bid because of a jammed schedule. Nelson, the 1945 P. G. A. king, agreed to emerge from the tran quility of his Denton (Tex.) farm and weary, aching back and all take a shot at the $10,000 plum as Hogan's substitute. The medal play caper-for-cash will open tomorrow at noon with 18 holes, the four professional hot-shots teeing off in twosomes. The final 18 will be played Sunday afternoon. In event of a tie, another 18-hole session will be played Mondy. FAMOUS Thrill-a-Minute NOW DAYTIME! SUNDAY. SEPT. 8th 2:30 P. M.
