SPORTS Play Finals Oi Net Meet Here Today By HOWARD V. MILLARD Herald Review Sports Editor . The weatherman sent the Central Illinois Tennis tournament to the cement courts in various parts of the city yesterday, but it only made the matches a little harder on the players legs. After a wait until 3:30 p. m. the elay courts, as smooth as a velvet carpet, were ready for action and then until darkness halted play the men, women and juniors were in constant action. Today's action will furnish the net fans of the city a battery of semi finals in the morning starting at 9 o'clock with the finals due to get started around 2 p. m.

The other semi finalists are the doubles mates Black and Forney of Peoria. Tne former defeated Bob Kiser, the I.I.A.C. champion of Decatur 6-3 and 11-9 while Forney bested C. J. Powless the Flora vet 6-1: 6-3. The stage was all set for a real battle in the Men's doubles with Paul Dixon and Keith Clark, the Pekin Invitational champs, facing the Maj. Johnson-Jack De Frates pair while Black and Forney tangle with Baymiller and Coker. Dixon and Clark won from the two junior champions Moses and Besant of Pekin 8-6; 6-3 while John- son-De Frates bested Serbu-Pow- less 6-2; 6-4.

His Reds dropped their eleventh game of the season to the Cubs today, 8-3, in a game called by rain when one was out in the last of the eighth inning. Cincinnati has yet to beat Chicago in the current campaign, and today's win, before 12.308 fans, was the third straight of the current series which ends with a double-header tomorrow. The Cubs jumped on Arnold Car ter for two runs in the first inning as big Paul Derringer, a former Red hurler, handcuffed Cincinnati until the eighth. He eased up in that frame and gave the Reds three runs before he was rescued by Paul Erickson. It was Derrin ger's eleventh win of the year against six losses, and Carter s fourth loss. Carter Is Wild Carter put the first two runs on base when, after Stan Hack had walked and Don Johnson forced him at second, he hit both Bill Nicholson and Phil Cavarretta with pitched balls. Andy Pafko's single to center started the scoring, with Johnson and Nicholson crossing the plate. Dewey Williams scored another Cub run in the fourth when his single was followed by Derringer's and Hack's hits. Hack scored an unearned run in the sixth when he reached first on Frank McCormick's error and Johnson doubled. A base on balls to Carter, fol lowed by singles by Woody Williams. Dain Clay, McCormick and Al Libke, gave the Heds their three runs in the eighth, but the Cubs came back before the game was halted to score three in the last of the frame on doubles by Lennie Merullo and Hack, and Singles by Johnson, Nicholson and Cavar retta.

July 23 (AP Horace (Hod) Lisenbee. 44 year old veteran with the Cincinnati Reds, today performed the unusual feat of pitching in a big league game without facing a batter. Rule 17. Sec. 4 provides that a substitute pitcher must continue to pitch until the batsman then at bat either has been put out or has reached base, or the side has been retired. Lisenbee replaced Arnold Carter in the eighth inning of today's game with the Cubs' and then pitched three called balls to Andy Pafko when time and, eventually, the game was called on account of rain. Pafko's tenure at bat thus was nullified and Lisenbee has no other pitching record other than entry into the game.

Harridge O.KsDeal Chicago, July 28 (AP) So far as President Will Har ridge of the American League is concerned, the baseball deal that brought Hank Borowy, Yankee pitcher, to the Chicago Cubs was "perfectly in order." Harridge today quietly reviewed the sale of one of the American League's ranking pitchers to a first- place National League team, and said in an interview: "That transaction was perfectly in order. Waivers were asked on Borowy, and there were no takes. Those waivers expired a week ago Friday (July 20) and the Yankees were perfectly free to deal for the sale of Borowy with any team, un der baseball law, that they so de sired. "It is hard to understand' why other club owners in the league would let a pitcher like Borowy be waived, out of the league, but there were no claims. In fact, I think congratulations are in order for Jim Gallagher (vice-president and general manager of the Cubs) for being on his toes and taking advantage of the opportunity to add Borowy to his pitching staff. 1 Remove Price Control Washington, July 28 (AP) The OPA announced today that all fishing tackle except rods, reels and non-metallic line sand nets will be removed from price control, effective Aug. 2.

Washington, July 28 (AP) Clark Griffith today formally requested. the major leagues to take immediate action on changing the present waiver rule, as a direct result of the "Hank" Borowy case. The white-haired . 75-year-old owner of the pennant-ccntending Washington Senators wired Will Harridge, American League president: "Strongly urge immediate telegraphic vote of major leagues on changing present waiver rule back to old rule where' clubs can only withdraw once on a player." He also intimated that Baseball Commissioner A. B. "Happy" Chandler might have grounds for action tinder the Commissioner's power to handle anything "detrimental to baseball." Chandler said that he will "findl out the facts" to see if "any subterfuge was involved" for his "personal guidance." His study will not be in the form of an official investigation, however? he told a reporter. A Lousy Rule Chandler disclosed that he talked with Griffith "about another matter" and Griffith mentioned the Borowy case, but "nothing was said about it. being detrimental to baseball." Borowy. star pitcher of the New York Yankees, was sold yesterday to the Chicago Cubs of the National league for an estimated $100,000 Stymie Comes From 22 Lengths Behind New York, July 28 (AP) Stymie, a Tour-year-old claimed by Hirsch Jacobs two years ago for $1,500, was 22 lengths off the pace at the half-way mark of the Butler Handicap today but rallied to a three-quarter length triumph that meant $38,850 in prize money.

Larry Jibes Griffith Borowy slipped out of the American League, he said, because tht Yankees "have been asking waiv. ers on everybody on their club." MacPhail, in New Y'ork. termed Griffith's protest as "pretty silly. His squawk is nothing more than an alibi. As a matter of fact.
