' WIMBLEDON, Inland, July 1— (UP)'—America's principal hope for' the men's singles title in the all-England tennis tournament was blasted today when Jack Crawford of Australia defeated Sidney B. Wood, Jr., of New York, 6-4, 6-3, 6-8;'5.7, 6-1- Crawford and Wood, both former Wlmledon champions, produced the most sparkling tennis ot the tournament thus far. Crawford, OS his game slightly : for the last year, found It again today and was little short of magnificent in the first two sets. Hig drives, off both forehand and backhand, were o£- perfect length and pace and he repeatedly scored with beautiful backhand cross-court drives.'' Wood played well in the first two '»sls, but his backhand was a bit rfliaky. Several, time's he muffed A Pitching Paradox ,.BT BUTWTLEI of.

Before the current season started who would'have dared pre- maneuverlng diet that-the loft-handed ace or the •of position, Yankees' mound staff would be an unheralded Lithuanian • rookie" by the name of Vltautas Tamulls. and that the great Lefty Gomez would prove a .dismal failure during the firs.t part of the campaign ; The amazing decline" of Gomez, which.ordinarily would have sounded the 'death''knell to the New Yorkers' pennan' hopes, has been compensated for by the unexpected rise of young Master Tamulis. Vito. as.he has been tagged by the baseball writers who got.tired ol trying to spell Vltautas, Is a very surprising youth. Opposing batters can't understand how the 22 year old-'Lithuanian gets by, for they Insist that "Tammy" has,, no fast ball, and i»o baffling curve.- .-.-.. A' pitching paradox,," Tamulis fools the hitters,, with 'what is known is a "nothing"b"a.ll""an'd" the j secret of his success , can.-'be sum-' med up in just one word—control.

VeteransTlike Willie She'r'del and Herb Pennock .got by for year s after they had lost their speed and curves; -and the reason .for their continued effectiveness was . their marvelous control. • Ta'mulis was raised in Boston, iut he still seems like a country x>y in the big city when fle comes to New York. He i« anything but a playboy, arid never goes far from the. hotel where he is stopping when in New York or when the Yanks are on the road.

It.looks like NEW YORK, July 1—(UP)— The report that th« Squire of Chwt- nut Hills r Jack Sharkey, plane a return to the ring in search, of the heavyweight championship which once was his, is, by far, the moat heartening news this department has heard in yenrs. Boxing suffered, a..distinct, loss when Shwkey, . following . his knockout at ; the hands of, Priino Camera, called it quits -and fled to the quietnes* of his Back JBay^es-. tate. there to devote his, life to the care and i culture. of his • rock gardens. . • ""..For, when Sharkey quit there wa» n o one left to really hate.

The Roy Steele Red Sox of Indianapolis were no match for the potent Chase Cubs Sunday afternoon at Riverside park and the peppery Bruins extended their winning streak with an 8 to 2 victory over the highly-touted Capital City aggregation. The Cubs went to work and scored a couple of runs in their first appearance at. the plate just to show the yisitprs that they meant business and from there on it was easy. They had eight runs to their credit before the invaders tallied in the eighth. Charley Meade belted, a homer to aid and abet the Cub cause and Dunphy contributed three hits including a pair of doubles, while Morris, Klinck and :ould go to his place with' the com. orting knowledge., that you'd : be ixtended the most varied program it, inhospitallty known to man." In his way, Jack was a perfect host He never was too busy, never too absorbed in his work, to'stop and make his guests uncomfortable. No matter what he was' dolng.^he .was always ready to sop .and aid In Inconveniencing-/hose, about him. I'll never forget his last luncheon to. the press .before he left- Gus Wilson's estate in the Catskills to come down to -meet Camera. It was a warm day. During the third course Sharkey made- what •- we thought was an extremely gracious gesture. He' ordered one of -the waiters to turn o n the four'over- head electric fans, such as ; you used to see in the local.-ice cream parlors. He had placed on each I oils, blade of each fan a half-inch layer of sneeze_ powder- ' The official weighing-in ceremony the afternoon of the fight always found Sharkey at his "best Today - weighmg-ins • are .dull,,.lis« less-affairs, at which ..the gladiators come quietly.-in. slip, off their,first layer pants, step on the scales, subject gladly to interviewers and pictures, slip back on their pants, and depart with a-nod and a smile. When Sharkey weighed in it was something akin to a ship sinking. It was strictly every man for himself. Sharkey, wearing a two-pants scowl and a two weeks growth of cussedness, always stormed In ready for a fight. He barked at in. terviewers." He bared hie fangs at cameramen.

Nor any woman, either, judging by his remark -of "Get up on the rail, Queenie, and strike a. pose that'll show a bit of your legs." to Queen Marie when she first visited this country. Mr. Sharkey despised Mr. Kaplan. .This made it unanimous. Whenever Mr. Sharkey. got tough with Mr- Kaplan, Mr. Kaplan always struck the same stance said the same words. Spreading, his legs wide apart, and sticking out his chin, Mr. Kaplan -would roar: "Hit me, you (deleted by the editor): Hit me! I'll sue you the rest of your life!" Mr- Sharkey. never hit him. There's another fetching angle to Mr. Sharkey's proposed return to the ring. It involves Prlmo Carnera- Against all his other opponents, Camera never could hit Tiard e-nough to knock a sparrow off a telegraph wire. But , against Mr. Sharkey, one of the most skillful fighters the heavyweight ranks has ever seen, he was good enough, and' powerful enough, to knock" Mr. Sharkey cold. "He hit me," Mr, Sharkey said after the fight, "the most terrific punch I have ever felt; it was horrendous." It was not only horrendous— it was invisible- Mr. Sharkey—would do everybody a' great favor if he would come back to the wars, meet Mr. Camera, and reveal.-once again, that invisible punch.
