Columbia Vnlversity. ?K-orge rt. Moore. Jr..
created s e^fis?t on for the second time In
the reglmcntM Indoor ? hamplonshlp singles
yesterday by defeating Arthur <S. Cragln,
one of the regimental veterans, and thereby
galrdntv his place In the final round of the
cup fixture. A week ago, on the courts of
the 7th Regiment armory, ?Sfith street and
Park avenue Moore ?'irprlsed the followers
of the game by eliminating Walter Merrill
Hall, the champion of 19H and the player
vanked tenth on the national list for the
eeason. In his clever handling of his shots
*nd playing of position Moore was at hi?
b?-*t yesterday, and be scored against
? ragin at S?*, 9?4, 8?6.
At all times the work of Moore was
watched hy a critical gallery. The thing
which puzzled them most was the fact that
hla weakness appeared to lie In his back
court playing. From behind the hase line
he generally bandied drives poorly and un?
certainly, especially off hi* forehand. He
appeared unable to ludge Cragln's .?peed,
uaually weakly sending the ball slapping
into the net on tho return. Otherwise he
was strongly aggressive at all times, and
his powerful service gave Cragln no end of
Hall scored the match yesterday, and
after it was over he summed up Moore's
good qualities hy saying: "He works as
Raymond D. Little, the national champion
In the doubles, does in court covering. He
is alert and intercepts the ball prettily.
Then lie has a forehand stroke like Lar
ned's. Altogether, he appears to be a com?
ing player, as he ha.? displayed remarkable
skill In hla debut upon board courts."
Moore wss also successful in the handi?
cap double*. Paired with (i. S. HaiKk,
the team defeated I* C. Wagner. Jr.. and
F. J. Kenncy in straight sets by a score
of 6?4, <??2. If anything. Moore was bet?
ter In the doubles than In the singles. In |
th* former he was especially strong at bis I
deep court game, brinKln?? off hla passing
shots with speed and unerring aim.
The conditions for the seml-flnal match.
which held the main court in the after?
noon, were all that could be desired. The
light was good and an enthusiastic gal?
lery ?at about the side lines. Arthur
Cragin began well and by rapid attacks at

stage <?ragin'* smashing was perfection,
and he led at 4?1 end 4?2 and won the set
at 6?3 without being pressed for the

the second set. His service from the right

ball, wa* too much for Cragln. Then he

By steadying himself Cragln ran Into a

'Bitter "Defeat on Courts
for American Players
Larned and Wright No
Match for Australian
Lawn Tennis Stars.
? hrlstcburch, Is". 7... ?Jan. 1? America?
challengers for the DbvIb International
\ lawn tennis cup were defeated In both of
i the singles matches here to-day. William
i A. learned, the American champion and
1 captain of his team, made a sorry showing
1 against Tod Heath, the Australian, who
won by a score of 2?*, ?5?1, 7?5, ?5 -2. Nor?
man B. Brookes, who, with Anthony F.
Wilding, captured the cup for the Aus?
tralaslan??, had an even easier time of it
; with Beals C. Wright, as be defeated the
! American at ?S~4, 2??S. ?5?3. 6?3.
The two singles matches were the first of
the series of five contests for the world
j famous trophy. As the doubles match,
which Is to hold the court to-morroy/ and
which will bring Brookes and A. W. Dun
| lop. the defending pair, against Wright and
Maurice B. Mclaughlin, lue latter the
? alifornlan. has generally been conceded ?to
the Australasians, there seems little likeli?
hood that the cup will return to America
? There was no surprise expressed among
the Australian followers of the game at
the oggcome of the two matches. The fact
that neither of them was closely scored
discounted any contention that the post?
ponement from last Friday until to-day be?
cause of the rain had had any effect upon
the Americans. Both Larned and Wright
yielded to superiority of skill. This result
came about, too, before one of the largest
galleries of spectators which has ever as?
sembled here, and which ln?luded the Gov?
ernor General. They were disappointed
I that Larned failed completely to live up to
his reputation, as the famous American na?
tional champion was at every stage out?
played by Heath, rated as the third string
of the defending team. Furthermore, It
was American weather, with a brilliant sun
and cool breeze and the splendid turf play
lnp surfaces were fast and true.
Before the matches were put on the fact
that Tod Heath had been selected for the
singles Instead of A. W. Dunlop caused
some comment. Dunlop la regarded ai far
stronger than Heath, and there were some
who believed that Brookes, the captain of
the defenders, had made a mistake, especial?
ly gg the draw, when made, brought Heath
against learned. But Brookes wished lo
pave Dunlop for the doubles competition, as
the latter will be compelled to out-smash
McLoughlln, a???1 the wisdom of the Aus?
tralasian captain wat? conceded after the
first two singles ha?l been finished.
The matches were played on adjoining
courts, and lhat In which IIrookes defeatcl
Wright was the first to end. From the
opening service Brookes was fast and ag?
gressive. .His service, which he played with
territlc speed, frequently drove Wright
wide of the court. Then the Australasian
proved a marvel at getting the ball when
the American ex-champlon attempted to
bring off a parsing Bhot. Wright's left
handed wielding of the racket ?ild not
bother him In the least. Brooke? was
usually successful In manoeuvring for hfl
openings, and when he got up to the net he
upheld his reputation as a volleyer.
In the second set of the match the
American made ht? one bit of brilliant
playing. By sheer force he drove Brookes

that soon brought the sot ?0 |ts conclusion,
with the Australian scoring only two

to maintain, however, and In the early
games of the third set he was compelled to

Brfiokes never wavered. His steadiness
was relatively hi? chief asset. He soon
had the American playing upon the defen?
sive and endeavoring to lob so that
Brookes might make faulty returns on his
overhead stroke?, the weakest department
of his game. This proved futile, for Brookes
took plenty of time, ?coring oftener than he

The third set was a battle of court strat?
egy, learned seemed slow and uncertain
against the Australian player, and It was
only by the most strenuous effort that he
held the gnmes even up to 5?all. After
the games had touched at deuce Heath
