Miss Zinderstein Defeats Qubmate on Courts
By Fred Hawthorne
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 16.?They came through to-day, the fa
forites. in the women's national championship singles lawn tennis tourna?
it now being played on the turf courts of the' Philadelphia Cricket
??nb at St Martins, and so they will face one another in the semi-final
!0U3<i to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, in this manner: Miss Helene
Pollak, national indoor champion, vs. Mrs. Molla Bjurstedt Mallory,
termer champion, and Miss Eleanor Goss, No. 2 on the ranking list last
nsucn, versus Miss Marion Zinderstein, of Boston, national clay court
Mrs- Mallory was closer to defeat in4
1er match to-day with Miss Eleanor j
Ttnnant, of California, than in any :
??ornament in which she has competed \
m this country this season. The score ;
-at 6?2, 2?6, 6?3. In the third set. !
?fttr leading at 3?0 and 4?1, the for- '
-er champion allowed her brilliant op
Snent to bring the score to 4?3. In |
l eighth game Miss Tennant led at
40~0 on pointa, and it seemed certain
tktt she would square tj?e match on
the next pom: and had she dene that ;
ihe might have won.
But at this point there was a sudden '
sfcift in the fortunes of battle. The
Califorr.ian volleyed inches out of court
for tfce loss of the next point. Then
Jilt. Maliory showed her mettlt in su-!
pert? fashion. Twice she sent dazzling
heekhand shots across the court for
dean placement aces, bringing the
scare to deuce.
?total at Critical Moment
Miss Tennant was making her su?
mme effort, but when she lost the
next point on a net roll as Mrs. Mai
lory's* fore-hand drive sent the ball
barely trickling over the i.tV, the player j
from the Coast faltered for a moment,!
ud that moment meant her last chance '
for the match, as she sent an easy vol?
ley into the net, ?giving Mrs. Maliory
the pttc for 5?1. j
In the next ??-ame the great Nor?
wegian s*ar played with all her old
_n and finality, scoring the last point
of the match with the vicious forehand .
irire down close to the side line for a
placement. Miss Tennant barely got
her racquet on the bail as she made a
desperate lunge for it.
Miss Zinderstein had no such diffl- i
eulty with Miss Leslie Bancroft, also ?
of Boston and her clubmatc, winning
in straight seta at 6--4, 6?2. The
clay court cltampion put up another
rplendJd exhibition, offsetting all Miss
Bancroft's :ine deep-ccurt driving by
grand volleying and unusually severe
orer.".e:id P-av. Ti-^re was r.o real
weakness in Miss Zinderstein's game.
For Miss Bancroft it was a very good
match, and in the first set. t.fter trail
!Eg at 5?2. she staged a st rring ra y
?nd won the eighth and ninth games
earr.Jr.g her po.nts by beautifully ac?
curate and paceful clrjves that pa-sed
M.ss Zinderstein as the latter charged
for the net. But the clay court cr.am
pi&n look the tenth game fur the set
at 6~4. and then went after the sec?
ond with even more dash and determi?
nation, reeling off shots that kept
M.ss Bancroft continually on the de?
Mr?, Niles Def-gited
Miss Goss defeated Mrs. Nathaniel
W. Niles, of Boston, by a score of
??4, 6?2. bus: there was nothing about
the New York giris game to-?ay to
wuse the hopes of those, who are re
if.r.g upon her to bring the champion
ifttp to Manhattan. Errors that Lave
so place in trie game of a player with
Miss G'jS;'c great ability were coming
from her racquet with rather alarm?
ing regularity, and it was only her
sjreat number of earning shots that
kept the national doubles champion
out of r:?ort? serious difficulties.
It is possible that Miss Goss was at?
tempting to :a*.*e herself for the great
test ?ht: will face to-morrow, when Miss
Zlr.derstem. is her opponent, but she
?rlli have to do much better. Many of
"tier ground strokes sen t;he ball jr.to
the net, er.-i overhead she was n?jver
certain. Mrs. Niles did extremely well,
eenii^j?r.ig the fame of her opponent.
me ni steadiness from the hack of
the ecjrt kept Miss Gosj on the alert
from start :. finish.
la the second set the New York girl
iteadiei d*. ?? r. somewhat, z.r.d then ?he
proved how easfiy she could w-.n her
point?, smothering her opr.nent's re?
turns by powerful ar. i well ?r.z'.?d vol?
leying for the coart cvrntrs. Mrs.
Niles go: only two gtr.es.
M.?s Po.iak went a.ong steadily, as
ihe has ao.'.e since the start of the
tourney, and the accuracy cf her back
court game defeated Misa Edith rfigour- ?

In Golf Tourney
Golfers from distant points of the
?rlobfe survived the first match round
in the invitation tournament at the
Mcrris County Golf Club yesterday.
For instance, Reginald Lewis, of Green?
wich, and Cyril Tolley, the British
champion, will meet in the semi-final
this morning, while C. G. Greenway,
ol' Garden City, will clash with Bobby
Jones, the boy wonder from Atlanta.
Conditions at Morris County called
for an eighteen-hole qualifying circuit
in the morning, with match play in the
afternoon. Jones had easily the best
score of the day, a 74, while Tolley
was second with 79. Tolley defeated
thf- other visiting Englishman, Roger
Wethered, in match play, by 3 up and
2 tc play.
Jones had the hardest kind of a '
match with Gardiner White, the Nas- !
sau champion, the former winning on
the home green. White really defeated :
himself, for he stood 2 up with four ?
holes to play and then proceeded to
los? the fifteenth, where he needed an
extra putt and the sixteenth because
of a wild drive. They halved the sev
enteenth, at the eighteenth both were
on in two, but White needed an extra
putt, giving the match to Jones.
The clos'-st match of the first eight ,
was. that between "Gil" Greenway, of
Garden City, and Paul Moore, of the
home club. That went to twenty-one
?-.oles before th?? Lon*r Island golfer I
wen by 1 tip. Another twenty-one hole
match resjulttd from the meeting of
Percy Pyne, of Piping Rock, and . . B.
Richardson, of Morris County, the
home golfer -?inning.

In Fast Time
Fields Cut Almost in Half
at ?\queduct; Fo-ur Fa?
vorites Home in Front
By W. J. Macbeth
Until the various racing associations
of this vicinity get over the idea that
they caf? operate on a shoestring, fall
racing on the metropolitan tracks is
bound to be the big joke it has since j
the horses returned from Saratoga.
Horsemen (except the few ?oca! multi?
millionaires who are anything but the '
backbone of the game) cannot be ex?
pected to race for charity when Mary
land, Kentucky and even the Canadian
tracks pay twice the purse money that
li was expected that some improve?
ment might be seen with the opening
cf the fall meeting of the Queens
County Jockey Club at Aqueduct yes?
terday afternoon, as it was believed I
the small fields at Belmont Park were
partly the result of prejudice toward
running the English, or reverse, way
of the track. But no improvement was
noticed; in fact, the reverse held true.
V> hat seemed a very attractive pro?
gram as advertised wa? scratched
down to next to nothing. The only'
field of balance or class closed out
the program, when ten two-year-old? ?
went to the post for a six furlongs
dash. One cannot fool all of the peo- i
plr* all of the time. The public is be-'
ginning to get "hep"' to the fact that,
the best horses have gone elsewhere,
a fact that i.-s being attested daily by '
dwindling attendance. ?
Bine Pencil Promlscooaa
The first field yesterday was cut in '
two by the blue pencil; scratched from I
fourteen down to seven. Three of the
four named went in the steeplechase. :
Eight had been named for the third
trial, but only half that number went
to the post. Three of the eight nomi?
nations were withdrawn from the fea?
ture event. The fifth was a two-horse
race, though only three had been en-;
tered. so far as that goes-'- There were
only two icratr-hed out of a dozen in
the closing ever.t.
Ko far au form?or what was left of
it after the wholesale scratching is
concerned, Aqueduct's fall opening was
about as propitious as could be ex- \
peeled. Four favorites won, though all
of them were at odd.--on and mostly
at such lean quo*aton that the regu?
lars simply wagged thfir head3 and de- :
c.ded to take a look instead of a leap.I
The leature of the opening day cafd I
at such lean quotations that tne n-g-u
was the Arverne Handicap, for throe
year-olds and upward, at six furlong?. I
This purse, which had an added value of !
$3,000, was won by J. E. Widener's
reliable, old Naturalist, which bore his
impost of 133 pounds as if but a
feather and dashed home in the good :
time of 1:12 3-5.
Naturalist did not long leave the race '
ir doubt. He was in a sweet temper, and.
off on his toes, soon had tlie rail posi?
tion, whence he led ali the way. Harry
Payne Whitney's Panoply hung on
gamely for five furlongs, but had quite j
??sufficient of Naturalist's game by that j
time and dropped quick.y back to next
to last. Naturalist, though he ran a '
fine race was loafing none at the end.
Georjre W. Loft'.-; On Watch was crowd- :
Lucky To Win at 1 to 2
The steepiechas=.? was more or less- of,
a laugh. Ticket, the 1 to 2 choice,
eventually staggered home, though he
could scarcely get over the fences, i
which he took sidewise. It was well j
for him that he had nothing to beat but ?
Elmer Johnson after the second fence,
where Sweepment, the second choice,
lost his riuer. Despite his victory,.
Ticket whs perhaps the luckiest 1 to
2 shot that has been so'.it to the races
in the laut decade.
The third race, the Bellerose Selling!
Stakes, with S2.J0C added, at five fur- i
!.r.gs for two-year-olds, was* nothing:
but an exercise gallop for the Oneck
Stable's Frigate. This gelding was
in hand all the way. Larry Waterbury's
Ren was much ihr- best of the others,
and took the piace easilv. Jefferson j
Livingston's Rolo was heavily played '
for the place, but the best he could do
was to finish third after making up a
let of -round in the stretch.
J. E.~ Widener's Pilgrim beat Tailor
Maid in the Luke Blackburn Handicap
at a mile and a sixteenth. Only the?e
two Btarted. For nearly a mile the
pair raced as a team. P'ljrrim to the

Sheriff Knott on Job

will be notified by the Boxing Commis-,
sion when the license of a club is
revoked and it will then be up to the

In an address Commissioner John?
son said: "Legalized hoxir.g failed in
this stare in the past because of greed.
Short-sighted promoter.-, managers and
boxers pulled down their pugilistic
temple. Some of them have lain now
for several years quite broken in their
own wreckage. To them we say that
this present boxing law has teeth
that are long, sharp and strong, and
we shall try to see that they Jo not
ruin boxing again.''
The commissioner also dwelt on the
common evii attending importnni bouts.
tnat of people paying large prices fur
seats they never get.
On this point he said:
"We of the Boxing Commission
who administer the law after Com?
missioner McGuire and his associates
have issued licenses, wish to call par?
ticular attention to an abuse that has
driven many patrons of boxing from
contests. 1 refer to the failure to
give ticket holders the seats they
have paid for. This j? not only an
unnecessary evil, but une which the
law specifically condemn.* and pro?
"Promoters cannot sell a number
of tickets in excess of the number
of seats. A man is personally con?
ducted to his seat at the osera with
certainty and ?clat and he fre?
quently pays less to hear Caruso
than he dooi to see a good boxing
exhibition. The promoter -who does
not know enough to and the right
seat for the man from whom he has
taken money will be shown the near?

In Van of Seniors
With Card of 80
A golfer from the Lone Star State
gleamed rather luminously yesterday in
the opening attack on Colonel Bogey ?a
the seeond half of the four-day tourna?
ment of the sixteenth annual senior
golf championship of the United States
over the Apawamis Club links? Hugh
Halsell, a retired banker from Dallas,
hung up a mark there which has never
been equalled in the history of the
graybcards ot the links. It was no less
than en SO for eighteen holes.
It was the first appearance of th?
Texan in the senior event, and he was
thus classed as a "baby" in spite of his
fifty-seven years. He had forty each
way, and his card was sprinkled gen?
erously with par holes. He had five of
them in a row after the first hole and
four coming in, with a "birdie" on the
335-yard tenth hole for a 3. As he
needs only 90 to beat the low water
mark of 171 of Charles D. Cooke, who
is now leading for th? championship?
Halsell's chances look very bright.
His card was:
Out_ 54443454 T?48
la. 3 4 4 4 6 5 < 6 6????8?
Close on the heels of the man from
the Lone ?tar State was Jerome A.
Peck, of tho home club, who was only &
stroke behind the best previous mark
of 82 arid but three worse than the
Texan. He came home in 39 strokes,
which is only two strokes above par
and three under bogey. HaiseJl's mark
was two below bogey.
The winner of the net prise for the
day was John Boyce, of Fox Hills, with
90?18?72. He is sixty-eight years

During this period our enthusiasm for the
