Mrs. Mallory Triumphs Once Again in Singles Finals on Heights Casino Courts
Miss Eleanor Goss Beaten
After a Splendid Battle
The Saddest Scene :::::? ? : .? ?? ? ; By briggs
"Norse Queen" Plays Better Tennis Than at Any
Time During the Last Two Years and Van?
quishes Rival in Straight Sets at 6?3, 6?1
By Frr.fl Hawthorne
Or.ce ntrain has Miss Eleanor (Joss been beaten back in her many
attempts to ?lofent Mrs. Franklin I. Mallory, the former national indoor
and outdoor lawn tennis champion. Yesterday afternoon, in the final
round of the ?ingles in the women's annual invitation tournament at the
Heights Casino, in Montague Street, Brooklyn, the former Miss Molla
Bjunrtcdt took the measure of Miss Goss in straight sets, by a score of
There were times during the match
when it seemed that the New York girl
was threatening Mrs. Mai lory's suprem?
acy. Her game was splendidly versa?
tile. She had the slashing "pace" to all
her shots that we ?=o rarely nnd amone;
even the leading women players, but
there was just something lacking that
cheated her of victory.
Or, rather, I should say that Mrs.
Mallory always had a bit in reserve, an
extra burst of speed, perhaps, an amaz?
ing faculty for shooting the ball into
the smallest and most fieeting of open?
ing?. The Norse "Whirlwind" did not
go to the net as frequently as I have
seen her do on other occasions. She
seemed to feel that her passing shots.
off both fore and back hand, were
weapons of offense both powerful and
dangerous enough to offset all the brill?
iancy of her rival's net,game, and re?
sults justified that confidence.
Takes Ball on Rise
But above all, I think, it was the
Norse girl's ability to take every ball
on the rise and send it speeding back
into Miss Goss's court, as though it
had bounded off a backwall that gave
her th? advantage.
This tended to put Miss Goss gen?
erally on the defensive, for she found
constant difficulty in getting back into
position for Mrs. Mai lory's return--.
The West Side Tennis Club girl was
quicker at leaving her ba.-e line, par?
ticularly when following in on service,
than I have ever seen her before; but
even so, there were many times when
she was caught a foot or two short and
was forced to tnke the ball ut her feet
as she came racing in.
A study of the stroke analysis will
show that Miss Goss made only four
more errors than Mrs. Mallory, but. the
latter was credited with a total of
thirty-two placement aces during the
match, as against Miss Goss's twenty
one, ana three of the latter service
For the "Norse qneen," it may be
said that she played better tennis yes?
terday than at any time during the last
two years. In the second set she dis?
covered that her opponent was "flub?
bing" some of the soft returns, and
she at once began to mix up her pace,
alternating terrific forehand drives
with half vo'leys that barely lifted the
ball over the net. Miss Goss. aflame
with the sole desire to win uppermost
in her mind, lost many points on her
return of these shots.
These lapses occurred mostly as the
tall New York girl took the hall on
the full volley close to the net. It
must have been discouraging to her to
see the ball hit the top cord, hang a
minute and tuen drop back into her
Both Break Through.
A curious feature of the match was
that while Miss Goss was serving
with remarkable accuracy and sever?
ity from start to finish, and scored
three service aces on her de.ivery, she
really gained little if any advantage
on her service, both players breaking
Mrs. Mai ory began the service in
the match, but dropped the first gamt
as the sent hard drives into the ne..
With Miss Goss serving in the next
game, the Norse girl struck her peer
leBS stride and took the* game at
"love," and went along in her winning
ways until she led at 4 1 on games
The third, fourth and fifth were onl;
scored by Mrs. Mallory after the points
had been fought out to "deuce" sev?
Miss Grjss won the sixth game after
a desperate struggle, with deep drives

from base line to base line rousing the
: gallery to waves of applause. As
! though 'in retaliation, Mrs. Mallory
! swept through the next game without
?allowing her rival a single point, scor
'. ing on wonderful backhand volleying
I shots across the court to the side lines
1 and to Miss Goss's backhand. The
: eighth game went to the New York
girl as the result of some splendid
volleying and overhead play, and then
the former national champion finished
the set by winning the ninth game.
Miss Goss started serving in the sec?
ond set, but lost the game as Mrs.
Mallory rained perfect placemen'
shots through her court. The second
game was fought out~4o "deuce" twice
before Miss Goss broke through her
rival's- service and squared the set.
They alternated on the next four
games, with the puce very fast, and the'
Norse wonder, reeling cff dazzling
I passing shots that sent the ball true j
to the line?, took the next two games, I
giving her the lead, 5-3. ;
Wins Ninth Game
Miss Go^s made another supreme
effort and won the ninth game after |
"deuce" had been called twice, and
then she was swept down to defeat in
'lie tenth gr.me as Mrs. Mallory sent
the ball rushing into court with beau
tiful'y angled shots.
The final point was won when the
Norse gird took Miss Goss's return of
service on her backhand and shot the
ball like a flash of light down the side
une and to Miss Goss's backhand, for
a clean ace.
Two matches were played in the
doubles, Mrs. Mallory and Mrs. Rawson

United States Will Challenge
For Davis Tennis Cup This Year
National Singles Tourney
Awarded to West Side
dub for This Year
About midnight after a long wrangle
the delegates voted to retain the old
scoring 8>t I :n with "love" and
"deuce." As for the new handicap rule
proposed by the committee, it was de?
cided to allow the several tournament
committees to determine whether they
wished to use the old or new rule
daring the season of 1920. The new
foot-fault rule as amended at the sug?
gestion of Lyle Manan was accepted.
The national singles championship.?,
on turf courts, were awarded to the
West Side Tennis Club yesteday at one
of the liveliest annual meetings the
United States Lawn Tennis Associa
tlon ever held. The session, which took
place at the Waldorf-Astoria, lusted
far Into the night. Th? award to the
T/ong Island club comprises six title
tournaments, ranging from the men's
down to the boys' tourney.
The Philadelphia Cricket Club was
granted the privilege of conducting th<
women's, girls' and mixed doubles turf
court title tournaments, while the
Western Tennis Association will pro?
mote the clay court netional champion?
ship for women and the mixed doubles.
In the past these events were con
/lurted simultaneously, but it. was voted
that ench be hcid on a depurate date
Although the 7th Regiment by a
unanimous vo'e gained permission to
again conduct the national indoor
men's title tourney, Its application
for the weinen s indoor national \
toorney for next year was tempor?
arily held up. This oction by the
delegates was decided after George
W. Wightman, of Boston, had appealed
to tho delegates to postpone action on
the award, as he thought that in tho
meantime better courts would be pro?
duced for the tourney, it was voted
to defer the awarding of 'ho tourney
until next December This applies
also to the girls* tourney, which will
he held for the first time next year.
With no opposition ticket in the I
Held, tha ?election* of the nominating:
committee were approved by unanl- j
mou? trote. Julius S. Myrick, o* New
York, wa? elected president, to suc- ;
coed George Townsond Adee, who de I
elired renon Inotion. The other offi?
cers cho?en were: Vice-president. Ed?
win F1. Torroy, Clinton, N. Y.; secre- i
tar?, George W. Wightman, Boston:
treasurer, Joseph M. Jennings, Phila? .
The sectional delegates elected j
were: Southwestern Association, J. B. !
Adoue, of Texas; New England Asso?
ciation, Edwin Shease, Boston; New
York State Association, R. Lindley
Murray, Buffalo Those comprising the
nominating committee are Charles S.
Landers, New York; J. G Stewart,
j Chicago, and W. P. Rowland, Philadel
| phi a.
One of the first matters that came
up for discussion at the afternoon ses?
sion was the challenge of the United
States for the Davis Cup in 1920.
. It was unanimously voted to challenge
! and to send a team to play in what
? ever country the preliminary ties are
I staged. The decision as to where ties
i shall be played is entirely up to Aus?
While the prevailing opinion seemed
to be that a majority of them would
be put on in this country, the associa?
tion gave the executive committee full
power to send a team to any country.
Should the United States bo drawn
against the British Isles and the
matches played there, it 1b probable
that our team would leave for England
in time to compete in tho Olympic

George W. Wightman, national cham?
p? n. was accepted by the association,
and invitations will be sent to all the
tennis pla; ing nations to send women
players to the United States this sum?
mer to compete.
The women's advisory committee
submitted a report recommending that
the women's annual national outdoor
championship be held on the turf
courts of the Philadelphia Cricket
Club in September, instead of in June
?sr usual. The report recited the rea?
sons for the change. The matter waa
turned over to the schedule commit?
tee, with the recommendation that th?
desired change in date be made, and
this will undoubtedly be done.
One of the most important matters
up for discussion at the early session
was the question as to the conditions
under which the national doubles
championship tournament should bt
conducted next summer. The Long
wood Cricket Club, which has held th<
event for the last two years, has pui
in a bid for 1920 and will doubtlest
handle the tourney again
The delegate*, after due consid?ra?
tion, cast a vote to abolish the challeng<
round, thus making the doubles event
similar in conditions to the nations
singles. A new method of qualifyinj
for the right to play in this event war
proposed and passed. Sectional cham
pions, or, if they Hre unabl? to com
pete, the runners-up, are eligible t<
take part, and men who haVe oeei
ranked in the first twenty, either li
singles or doubles, nre likewise allowei
to enter the tourney. It wn? als?
votod to authorize tho association t<
pay the traveling expenses of the seo
tlonal champion teams.

Better Showing This Year
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 6.?Connie
Mack, manager of the Philadelphia
Athletics, in commenting upon a
statement made by him in an address
last night, "that the American League
may not start this year," said to-day
only certain members of the league
were giving that impression. He him?
self is hopeful of the outlook and ex?
pects a successful season.
Connie Mack declared what he tried
to convey in his address was "if we
are to believe what we hear from cer?
tain members of our league, we may
not have an American League this
year, but if we do, I expect to make
a much better showing during the com?
ing season than last year"

For Hot Fight
Neither Appears Weak in
American League; Mack's
Talk Creates Animus
By W. J. Macbeth
That tho rival forces of the Ameri?
can League expect plenty of trouble in
Chicago next week and that there is
no, apparent sign of weakening on
either case was evidenced in yester?
day's Philadelphia papers. Connie
Mack, half owner of the Philadelphia
Athletics and stanch supporter of Ban
Johnson, at the annual dinner of the
Quaker City sports writers the night
, befoie last intimated war to the
Connie declared at length that the
fight against Johnson, of the American
League, "by a certain crowd" cannot
force him (Johnson) to resign.
"He (Ban) can stay there as long as
ho wishes the position," said Mack
i "They will hurt none but the innocenl
? clubs not taking part in the fight
j President Johnson is the man whc
made the American League second tc
"I am not certain there will be ar
American League this year," Mack con
eluded, "but if there is. I expect t<
make a good showing with my team."
Battling "Til" Huston, of th?
Yankees, got a good chuckle out o:
Too Late to Reconsider
"We never Intended to fight witl
, cream puffs," declared the colonel with
out passion. "Perhaps the boys oi
the other side of the fence are jus
beginning to tumble to the fact tha
they have a real fight on their hands
But the time for them to have con
sidered was before they oiled up tha
: old steam roller. It's too late now fo
j them to cry over the spilled milk.
'If Connie's latest ebullition is calcu
| lated to intimidate the opponents o
: Ban Johnson, he'll have to come again,
I continued Huston dryly.
"Mack, I see, is quoted from Phila
! delphia to the effect that the figh
j against Johnson will hurt no one ex
I cept the 'innocent.' That is quite tru
if he means the so-called 'loyal' club
by 'innocent.' If he means by th
'innocents' himself, Clark Griffith an
Phil Ball, why, all I have to say i
that they were the first to rush t
Johnson's assistance and to refuse a
i offers of conciliation.
"He says there may be no America
League next season," said Hustoi
I ''Well, so far as I can see, Connie hasn
been in the American League for aboi

"The clubs opposing Johnson are g
. ing to play baseb*'.ll in 1020?and ther
after," continued Huston. "If the oth<

\ Connie is bound to finish no wor
than fifth?which is three positioi
higher than he has landed in five year
I lou can't hang a guy for trying."
The two battling Colonels, Kuppe

? Frazee and Ed. Barrow, of the Ri
Sox, will leave to-morrow afternoc
for Chicago. Whether or not the rev
, lutionists will sit through the a
journed meeting of the Americi

I upon circumstances, it was said yeste
