Clothier Ion Tennis Championship On Courage Alone By BBUNABD BRENNER United TrcBH Sportn Staff Tennis was more of a Bocl event than a sport 'In the "yea™ up to the enrly IDOO's. The "Four Hundred' 1 —the elite of the land — used championship 'mutches an o gathering place—the tennis was strictly Incidental. Even the most rabid fans of the net game ' will admit' that the tennis played in those days deserved to be incidental to an- afternoon of peeking at the Joneses. It was a dull, colorless, pat-a-cnke game most of the. time, with very little excitement for anyone. But around the turn of the century a new kind of tennis moved in. Even the eyebrow-lifting dowager;, in the stands at Newport Mat up and watched the match as the game picked up speed. Fast play came into it's own—driving serves— power, power and still more power. Many things have changed since then. Styles are different—the national championship's have moved from tlie society atmosphere of Newport, in Rhode Island to Forest Hills in Now York — and the gnme has picked up oven more speed. But one thing hasn't changed ar.d never will— that's. courage. It was in 190C that William Clothier battled' his way into the quarter-finals of the national .tournament. Clothier wasn't a blaster—he didn't have as much power as most of the top racquet-swingers around for the competition. But -he had a sound all- around game—and he was a fl-ght- er. Frederick Alexander faced William Clotli'ier In' that quarterfinal match 3S years ago. He and Clothier Ignored the crowd. They had come to play tennis. And tliclr first set let the fans who oared, know that this was going to be a close one. Clothier took that set — but he had to go into overtime to win, at' 8 to 6. Clothier kept going at'top speed and wrapped up the second set the newspapermen—tennis experts, most of them—got ready to write the story of the biggest upset of the day." Clothier needed just one more set to go to win the match— and Alexander was a heavy favorite. 'Alexander found himself to some extent in the third set. He still confounded the ' experts with his erratic shots—but Clothier seemed to have let down from his early pace. The favorite climbed back Into the game with n. 6 to < victory In the- third set. Alexander finally seemed'to get control of his speed and collection of dazzling shots in the fourth set. He -swept Clothier off the court to win easily by 6 to 1. Then Alexander kept going in the fifth set. He had his stuff back and there didn't seem 'to be any chance of stopping him. The score ran up—four games for Alexander—five for Alexander—and two for Clothier and the favorite was just one game away from closing out the match. ' Clothier . went back to serve— but his last swing seemed to be of no use at all. Alexander crashed through Clothier's serve to take the first three points—It was 40- lovc—just one more point—match point! Clothcr tossed the ball in the ail- to serve and drove the ball across with all his strength—but it was outside. One fault—one more ball to serve jn the match. Once more Clothier stood back on the baseline; This time his'serve wns good —they rallied for a moment—and then the break came. Clothier down the lines like'a furry rocket- ship. It skipped Inside the -court and he had saved that match point. Suddenly—over on the other side of the net—Alexandch seemed to become a different man. His-weariness struck him in a rush. .. More match points remained— n-mre games' still to be played. But the match really ended on that first one. Clothier had come back from the rim of defeat and he went on to win the ma.tch and later the title. ,:-.':/• •' •''. . (JJNE-TWO BOYS By Jack Sords i» I ^ JUG Tool-Somers Brass, Chase- Wtby. Mfg.

Indications point to any one of several reasons for the withdrawal of the challenge—Fireball Joe Bcrno's arm, since getting a touch of the autumn weather, is not in too good a" condition, the Fore-, men might think that they are j getting a bit old, and with the' critical man 'shortage, they might have found it tough to get ringers, or both team's were afraid of the abuse -that might follow after the frame was over. And so, the challenge was withdrawn, after arousing a great deal of interest at the plant. Dodgers Lose Again; Yank Take Tigers; Giants Win Over Cubs '?•''•'-.'; • (By United 1'res.s) The Brooklyn Dodgers received another grain of humiliation 1 :it Pittsburgh, where they lost---two games for the price of one. The suspended Pirate-Dodger gnme of July 9 was concluded—just a half inning left—ar.d Pittsburgh won, 9 to 7. This strclcticd- the former Dodger losing streak to an even 1G games. Brooklyn lost the regular game which followed, a 7 to G match which Lifted 10 innings. Brooklyn smacked out five runs in the first two innings—but just couldn't hold the lead. Ernie Lombard! managed to whip the Chicago Cub's all by himself, driving home all the runs for New York as the Giants beat Chicago, 4 to - 3. The big- Giant catcher pounded out two home runs and a single as Johnny Allen pitched his third win. The Cleveland Indians almost won the game with home runs in the eleventh inning —but things got all tied up and it tool: a 13tn inning - Indian homer to defeat Boston, 7 to G. Mickey Rocco poled the circuit clout to win the game. In the 33th inning pitcher Jim Bagby and ouficlder Pat Sscrey drilled out successive homers^for Cleveland—but the lead was tied in the last half. New York's- S to 1 triumph over the 'pennant-driving Detroit Tigers was a home-run-made affair, led by two Yank power blasts. Russ Dcrry and Hcrshcl Martin led the Yanks to the win, while steady Walt Dubicl just -missed a shutout when an .error set up the lone Tiger run "in the third inning, Don Guttcridgc • of the Icngtio- loping St. Louis Browns picked the right game and inning for his first home run of-the year.

It is all the more surprising as Kate seemed the last possible candidate for So daring and unusual n. char- acicrization. Her distinctive voice and mannerisms were strictly against her. This was before Kate made a test for Jade that was so amazingly Chinese, and so unlike Hepburn that she ' eliminated all competition and won. the role hands down. . As Jado. Kate is again certain to confound her critics, as she has so many times in the past who have sai'd "Hepburn's terrific when she's playing Hepburn, but she can't play anything but Hepburn." In the careful preparation of her make-up and costuming, her study of the Chinese and modulation of her voice, sric has' created a Jade that delighted and received the warmest praise of Pearl Buck, author of the best-selling novel, when she visited on the set. Kate has a fearless intelligence. She is not afraid to change her mind. She has completely done so about Hollywood, That is .why she is playing Jade, the most challenging portrayal of her career. "Dragon Seed" also boasts such top flight names as Walter Huston, Aline MacMahon. Akim Tami- roff ond Turban Bey. It closes its engagement nt the Strand Thursday night.
