'J o&5CVE jj 5 PI 3 7J Talbert Upsets Segura; By Dick Young Two-fisted Pancho Segura ran into the fellow that yesterday. It was husky Bill top-seeded Latin star from struczle. Talbert's upset victory, rocket ing him into today's title-clash with Sergf. Frank Parker, placed Pauline Betz' ensuing 6-3, 8-6 romp over Margaret Osborne strictly in the anti-climax division to the 8,000 Forest Hills stadium fans, even though graceful Pau line's triumph produced her third straight women s crown and per manent possession of the UbLTA trophy. TALBERT SHIFTS TACTICS What made Talbert's victory so surprising was the fact that it was achieved in five strength-sapping sets. The Indianapolis lad was rated as a "sprinter" by most experts, and figured to lack the vitality to win over the route. But Bill more than balanced in strategy what he spotted the energetic Ecuadorian in stamina. He concentrated on Segura's palpable weakness a cream-putf backhand and on awkward stretchinjr fore hand. At first, Talbert tried to run Pancho down, sending him from corner to corner with a criss-cross Battern of long drives. Failing in this as the leaping Latin made off with the opening set, b-6, 1 albert switched his tactics. , Segura's two-fisted grip doesn't carry its sting on the back-sweep since he lets go with his left hand when' meeting the balL Similarly, Pancho can use only a single grip when lunging for wide fore-hand shots. Those are the two targets which Talbert blasted incessantly through 11 straight victorious games as he seized the second set and then romped ahead at love in the next group. SEGURA EVENS MATCH With match-point staring him in the face in the 12th game ot tne fourth set, Segura gambled boldly. He rushed to the net, angled the important point, and went on from that shaky moment to even the match with an 8-6 set. But Talbert, who had advanced no further than the quarter-finals in five previous national tourneys, peppered Pan-cho's soft backhand throughout the showdown struggle to earn the title crack today, his 25th birthday. With little rest, Talbert and Segura teamed up against Don McNeill and Bob Falkenberg in the men's doubles championship and fell easy prey, 7-5, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. Earlier in the afternoon, McNeill and Falkenberg had disposed of Armando and Rolando Vega in the brief pair of carry-over games from the previous day's semi-final postponement. That was a mere warmup for their crash through weary Talbert and Segura for the title. By contrast. Miss Betz easily disposed of Miss Osborne just as she had most of her opponents through the early rounds with a steady baseline game. Only Virginia Wolfenden Kovacs, in the quarter-finals, had extended Pauline beyond straight sets by charging the net. Today' Schedule 1215 P M.

The In dians backed Steve Gromek's four- hit pitching with timely hitting to earn a 4-1 victory over the White Sox today in a game marked by an altercation between manager Jim Dykes and his starting pitcher, Bill Dietrich. The veteran Dietrich, who was making his third try for his 15th victory, apparently was ordered to the clubhouse by Dykes after words P3ssed between the two when the hurler returned to the bench from the mound after the fourth inning, when the Indians took a 2-0 lead on Boudreau's scratch single and Cullenbine's triple. Questioned later as to Dietrich's withdrawal, Dykes said: "Didn't you fellows see the first four innings?" Dietrich was touched for four hits and gave two walks dur. ing that term on the mound.

Browns Top Tigers, 4-1, Cling to First Place St. Louis, Sept. 3 (JP). The league-leading Browns, faced with the prospect of toppling from the first place perch they have held since May 31, snapped a four-game losing streak today and defeated the Tigers and the league's best pitcher, Dizzy Trout, 4-1. However, while the Browns were attending to the Tigers, the Yanks were winning two games from the Sena tors and moving up into second place, half a game out of the lead. Detroit dropped into third place, two games away. After Detroit scored its run in the first inning on singles by Cramer and Mayo and a long fly by York, the Browns took the lead in their initial at-bat. Gutteridge was safe on Hoover's error. Kreevich advanced him to third on a single and Zarilla doubled to drive in both runners. Zarilla was out trying to stretch his hit into a triple.

Jack Kramer pitched a masterful game for his 13th victory. He allowed seven Bingles, struck out four, walked no one, and held York and Wakefield hitless. It was his first success since beating the Yankees, Aug. 12. A's Rip Sox, 5-1; Rout Dreisewerd Boston, Sept. 3 (JP).
