Americans can not win, for losing and in the process have raised the Ire of our Australian tennis cousins or uncles, or whatever the tennis people down under may be termed in relation to us. They took our national championship last fall via Frank Sedgman, and retained the Davis Cup a few weeks ago midst considerable bickering among the players from the United States, The bickering has not stopped either. Having rather soundly trounced us, the Australain tennis people are now in a. pet at us and boycott our nationals threaten to next fall. That may come under the head of the best break we could get. If they tangle with us, they surely will win, with the aid of the afore-mentioned Sedgman, who actually is a professional according to any standards that make the slightest sense. They are in a pique, bordering on a tepid peeve, because only two of our players remained over in Australia to play in their championships after the Davis Cup matches, when presumably we led them to believe the whole Davis Cup team would be there. This hurt their gate receipts, they are quoted as saying. Gate receipts are, as you may know, or paramount Importance in amateur tennis Same. whether played in America or in the Local land down under. Allegany's Hilltoppers Seek Fourth WMI Victory Allegany, LaSalle Clash Tomorrow In Important City.Tilt Coach "Bobby" Cavanaugh's Fort Hill High School Sentinels will be bidding for their fourth Western Maryland .Interscholastic victory against one defeat tonight when they entertain Beall High School at 8 o'clock. The contest is the lone game this week in the six-team county circuit. Allegany's Campers hold the upper hand in the league with five consecutive victories. The Sentinels, who grabbed the lead in the three-cornered city championship race Tuesday night with a 39-34 victory over LaSalle, will enter the contest with a record of nine wins and three losses. Fort Hill is in the runnerup slot in the WMI loop with a 3-1 mark. F.'ay At Martinsburg Coach Eddie Finzel's Mountaineers have scored only one win in the league against three setbacks. Beall's lone victory was a 87-61 decision over Barton. The Frostburgers' overall record shows five wins and six setbacks. ! The Sentinels will climax a busy week tomorrow night when they journey to Martinsburg, W. Va., to battle the Martlr.5burg High Bulldogs in a return game. In the only other contest billed for tonight, Davis High meets Thomas on the latters' court. Davis will be seeking its fourth consecu- victory in the land down under. So to get even they may not help us build up g:ite receipts in our nationals, so there. Sedgman, there can be no doubt, would be a great attraction again. He is generally the best tennis player in the world today. He loses occasionally, but when he is right he is unbeatable. However, upon his marriage he received slightly more than $12,000 In cash as a token for his having refused to turn pro. And if that dees not make not actually, technically, if eyes will be focused on gym tomorrow night when LaSalle tackles the Campers in an important city engagement. Lead At Stake Allegany. boasting a seven-game winning streak, dropped a 43-42 double-overtime tilt to the Explorers in the first meeting on the SS. Peter and Paul court. A win for Allegany tomorrow night would deadlock the Campers with Fort Hill for the lead In the three-cornered race and eliminate the Explorers while a LaSalle victory would give the Sentinels sole possession of the top spot.

On the college front, both Potomac State and Frostburg State Teachers will be in action on Saturday night.

The Bruce-LaSalle tilt scheduled here Tuesday, February 6, has been postponed until Tuesday, February 26, Brother Joseph, director of athletics at the North Centre Street school, announced. payday. Just to get even for the attitude of. the Aussies toward us, in threatening to pass up the U. S. nationals, we should get even by barring Sedgman. That .should put a stop to the nonsense for a few minutes. Then follow that up by refusing to meet the Aussies for the Davis Cup if Sedgman is permitted to play. That would fix some more sale receipts down under. The net profit from recent cup matches was around 580,000. The only barricade against our passing up a cup challenge is the fact that Uie .swag is split 50-50 between the U. S. and Australia. Our forces are not going to set mad enough to toss $40,000 out the win- what the Aussies Five Teams Near Clinching Berths In Dixie Tournament • ' - (B# The Associated Press) Five teams appeared today to be pretty fair bets to earrj berths in the annual Southern Conference basketball tourna-! ment at Raleigh, N.
