SSG ' By their defeat of Gauer and Dey of Morrisonville Friday afternoon in the finals, Philip Miller and Harry Hainea ot Decatur won the championship in doubles of the Central Illinois Tennis tournament, and will have possession of the two trophy cups u n t i l the match next season. The Decatur men. after slow start, took three out of f o u r from the Morrisonville team, the scores being 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-1. STARTED WITH HUSH. The Morrisonville pair tried to rush the Decatur men off their feet at the start, and soon had the advantage of ; | three sanies. The visiting team took the first set, 6-4. In the second set, both teams played a more careful g-ame, and after a close fight for the first six games, the Decatur men captured three, w i n n i n g the set, 6-3. Both of the following sets were slower and closely contested, although the Morrisonville men seemed to have lost control, and repeatedly slammed the ball outside of the tape. SINGLES FIXALS TODAY. The f i n a l s in singles will be played at 4:15 this afternoon between Phil Miller, twice winner of the cup in singles, and Curtis Busher, the Millikin crack tennis player. If the match goes to Miller, he will have permanent possession of the trophy cup. The match ivill, without a doubt, be one of the fastest ever sfeen on the Country club courts. It will ba a case of Miller's experience at the game against Bush- cr's apeed and skill. The men play an entirely different style of game, Busher always playing the smashing game, while Miller plays | He Asks for Release Commodores. from : n n a n 1 o i o ·- s i . a i . - 1 .e ".'..'.'.'.'.'..'..'.'.'· o n o o o o o r. o- c S V M M A R V .

It will be given him without question as the big German has been in anything but good form d u r i n g the t two weeks. He can now finish up the last chapters of his book. Secretary Howard Hanthorn has asked him send a copy when the first edition comes off the press. IS PHILANTHROPIST. There was a good deal of philanthropy in Viebahn's request for his release. One of the Decatur pitchers would have had to go anyway and E111 figured that he was the only on e who wouldn't lose much by being released. Yiebahn's father or uncle or somebody mamifactures breakfast food or patent medicines or something and stajcka the greenbacks away with a pitchfork. Whii.j in Decatur, Viebahn hatted about .019 on the diamond, but lip batted 1.000 in making friends. Decatur and Lincoln Meet Sunday.

The field events start at 2:30 and the game will be called as soon as these are over.

Bronson was a former athlete at the U. of I., having played on the varsity football team. He has been successful In his work at TJrbana. PRICE'S RECORD. Price was an all around star athlete both in hih school and college. He participated In three branches of athletics and was considered an exceptionally good player. He has hart two years' coaching experience in a large high school in Michigan. The preatc-st objection to the applicants tor the position seems to be that none have had much experience in college coaching.
