Ur.lled 1'ri'SS Sports Staff Two tennis players stood on the historic center court at Wimbledon. It was July 20th, 1937. Don Budge of the United States Davis Cup team stood on one side of the net. Facing him was Baron Gottfried. Von Cramm, the German. The German and the American opposed yiich other in the fifth and deciding match iri the inter-y.or.c finals. The winning "ti?a.m would meet England for the prized Davis cup—the silver mug that feymbol- world tennis supremacy! For the Americans that Vmatcti virtually meant the title! The United States squad was stronger than the • British tea|»^ There wasn't much doubt inJKnyonc's mind that I'T? Americans could go on t.o win '.hi 1 cup. But they to get by Von Cramm first. Eudcre and Von Cramm set the rni.ini-n fnr ; he r^n ; rh in th.> fii-5-t set. Thoy battled to a four-nil tic— then inio overtime at five-all-— six-all. Then Budge broke. The German crushed tlirough to win two straight games and take the sol. The second .set was the same story. The red-head from California " played brilliant tennis. His strokes crackled like bolts of lightning. But the blond baron was playing the match of his life. He v.-on the second sei in overtime, seven to five. Don Budge came out. like a new I man to win "the third set, six to four—the first one that didn't go for extra games. Don pressed on to boat down ihe baron in the fourth sui. The score was six to two. That tied the match at two sets each. They came 'oown to the fifth set wiih the chips down. Von Cramm opened with a blazing rush. He ran- the score to four games for himself and one for Budge. The few Americans in the crowd held theiv heads and prepared to accept, defeat. But Budge came back brilliantly. 1-1 e broke out wiuh a rash of strokes lhat some say constituted Hvj most bla/.ing tennis ever He drove -into the G_-v The fast-risinj; Detroit Tiger!' h.'wc climbed another notch in the American! league- standings.

The Red Sox came back to win the second sr.'jme 7 to 4 behind first-class relief pitching by Mike Ryba. At New York the veteran Mel Harder whitewashed the New,York Yankees as the Cleveland Indians be.-M. the champions 1 to 0.

GREAT MUSICAL THE CURRENT LEAD AT LOEWS POLI /"'LOWN PRINCE of baseball, Nicholas-(Nick) Altrock, the only ^ ball player in the world paid to make a fool of,himself, has forsaken his famous antics but he still keeps active in the sport as coach of the Washington Senators. Altrock, who has made millions laugh in his' many years aa a comedian on. and oft' the field, looks ahead to another season on the sidelines for the Nats, with whom he has been affiliated since 1909. He. has left his zany vaudeville stunts to his long-time partner, Al Schacht, who is still active. Alti-ock was a star pitcher in his early career, one of the best in the history of the game. A southpaw, Altrock was the ace of the Chicago Americans mound staff in 1904-05-06. when he won 63 games in three seasons. Born at Cincinnati, O., Sept. 15. 1S76, the famous' baseball comic began his career as a pitcher for Grand Rapids in the Inter-State league in 1S98. He moved up, going- to Louisville, Oswcgo, Binghamton, Syracuse, Toronto, Los Angeles and Milwaukee before the Boston Americans signed him in 1902. Altrock was used only sparingly as a pitcher with Washington but he was the No. 1 attraction of the Nats for many years as a comedian. He teamed with Herman Schaefer first and then with Carl Sawyer and finally with Schacht. He ended his playing career In 1924 but later made appearances as a pinch hitter. One of his most popular acts was his famous, baseball throw stunt. He'd take several balls and with his partner stage a rapid- fire display, wjnding up with an armful of the baseballs.
