Fob. 3. (AP)—The rcnlcsl lennls player of the nnst 50 yenr.s? Is (here nny argument? Not in the nostalgia opinion of he nation's sports writers and ra- lio experts. They say that big BUI I'ilclen, net colossus of the golden J wen(U'.s, out.shonc every rival by so ;reat a maigin there was no real comparison. The tall. ronlrovei'JSlul figure who von seven national championships and was ranked No. 1 in the coun- ry for ten straight years from 1920 hrmii;h "&, won the vole of 310 out of 391 participants In the Associated Pre.'is 1 mid-century sports toll. The voters looked riack beyond :he personal tragedy which .has icfallcn the great champion In recent years and Imosl a solid ballot for Tilden, the tennis ulnyer. Jatk Kramer, Uic current profession!!! king, attracted 32 votes. Don Budge, the red headed cornel of the lute Thirties, was the choice ol 31 experts. Mrs. Helen Wills Moody, glamorous .seven - time woman's champion, was voted ot the period l>y 12. The remaining six votes were divided among five players. Wimlil Bo Sluok Up Now Whether Tilden al his ue.ik could have iK'alen the modern "pressure" players is a debatable point. 'They argue about it In the locker rooms, and there ure eminent authorities who feel (hut. biy Bill, who was ul lii.s superlative best In the b3ck court, would have succumbed to the tiirios net attacks ol Budnc and Kramer. Admirers ol the old king are equally po.;llive that he could have adapted himself to any style of play in those years when his name was ^ household u-ord—that he could have met Budge and Kramer at the net and slapped them down for money, marbles or chalk. They point out that, after he was .well Into his forties, Tildcn WHS playing tliR daylights out of such lop young lellow professionals as Ellsworth vinos and Fred Perry, and that he wa.s carrying 48 years on his back when he finally Hot. a shot, at Budge, and lost, In 1041.

Then the spark expired and the 63-year old Tilden found himself out of broiuli. He won only two games in the remaining throe sols. H was the final gesture of one of the nil-time greats of sport. Not least remarkable of the Tilden saga Is the fact that from 1922 onward he played with a damaged racket .hand. An Infection that year forced the amputation of the first Joint of Tilden's middle finger, and it was fcui-ed his championship days were over. Hut Hill pasted some adhesive tape over the stump and never looked lack.
