LONDON, (UP) -- America's hopes of recapturing the Davis cup received a severe jolt Tuesday when Australia, which reached the challenge round last year, received the favored spot in the North American zone when drawings for the 1937 matches were made at admiralty house. The United Stales was paired against a lairly strong Japanese team lor its opening match while Australia, which lost only 3-2 to England in the 193G cup battle, drew a weak Mexican team. The winners meet for the right to play the European zone winner and out of t h a t match comes the country ·which will oppose England, de- winsinn c fending Ihe cup. Last year, Amur- imiisi ica lost to Australia in the North American zone. The draw was made by Sir Samuel Hoare, first lord of the admiralty, who is president of the lawn tennis association. Hoare, speaking over a radio network, welcomed the return of Japan and Italy to Davis cup competition. Japan has withdrawn because its teams have been weak while Italy did not play last year because of the European political situation. He referred to the loss of Free Perry, who turned professional as "a great loss." "But," said Hoare, "we are no' depressed or nervous." England, because of Ihe loss o: Perry, is an overwhelming favorite to lose the cup this year.
