Davis Tennis Cup Appears Safe to U. S.?Golf Faces Biggest Yeanl
Tilden and Johnston Still
Strong Enough to Repulse
Best Team of Challengers
Twelve ^Nations Seek Coveted Trophy; Mile. Leug
len*s Appearance in This Country Will Add Im?
petus to Game; U. 8. Has Great Young Players
By Fred Hawthorne
The greatest year in the history of lawn tennis, and America ?supreme
on the counts.
That is the situation to-day, on the verge of an outdoor season of
play that is to lead us. by ever-ascending stapes, to the greatest heights
the game has ever known, here or abroad.
At this writing it doe? not seem pos?
sible that any nation among th? twelve
challengers for the famous Davis Cup
will be able to,wrest the proud title of
world's champion from tl;?> United
States. 1 do not anticipate even a hard
struggle by our team when it takes
rh?? championship court at the West
Side Tennis Club, of Forest Hills. L. I.,

the onslaught of the for-sigr, team thai
comes through to the final test.
Australasia appears as the most
formidable bidder for the cup. with the
wizard Norman Brookes and tin? dy?
namic Gerald Patterson as 'her leaders,
ar.d Japan and Franco look ?ike the
next two most liable to make trouble.
if trouble is to be made Great Britain
i*= still apparently in a state of stagna?
tion as regards her tennis men, with no
new players of intrriiatioi3.il caliber
ready to step into the breach and?take
the place of the mighty veterans like
I'arkc, Beamish. Gore. Roper, Barrett
B33d Ritchie, who are about at the end
of their tennis rope.
Foreign Teams Weak
N'one of the other ter.ms^eed be con?
sidered seriously even for a momemt.
*'ne or two of these countries have sur?
prised followers of the game within the
last year by putting forward hitherto
unheard of players, South Africa, with
Louis Raymond, for instance, who won
the Olympic championship and de?
feated Ichiya Kumagae in doing s<
last summer. Mishu, of Rumania, and
Shimidzu, of Japan, also played seme
sensational matches, but they are ex?
ceptions, and only Japan, with Kum
agae, could form a sufficiently stronc
team to stand a char.ee against oui

In World of Trap Shooting
American Nimrods Have
Only to Battle Among
Themselves for Title
By Stoney McLinn
Secretary, American Trapsfiooting
With the two world's championships
the individual and the team?safely
landed in the Home of the Brave, there
is" nothing left for American trapshoot
era to do this year but battle among
themselves for the highest shotgun
honors to be won under the Star*** and
But just because the mack shots '
from the United States swept every?
thing before them at the 19'JO Olympic i
games in Antwerp is not regarded as a
v^lld reason for resting upon the lau?
rels won *
The feature event ii| the shotgun
game this year will be the Grand Amer?
ican Handicap Tournament. The Grand |
American is the world's series of trap
dom. ?fen, women and even children
travel from all sections of this coun

pete for titles. The chief feature on

Wright Wins National Title
Immediately alter iiis visit t?, Aim
wcrp last year Frank S. Wright, o\'
Buffalo, who had previously won his
state champious*hip. rushed out to
Cleveland and carried off th?. national
title. Wright has won the champion?
ship of New York State three times in ,
the laet seven years, carrying off the i
laurels in 1911. L919 and also in 1920,
iu.d he will 'be called upon to defend
the honors at Syracuse on .May 30 and
.">1 and June 1. r
But the American amateur champion?
ship is not the only feature Of the
Grand American. It is almost as great
an honor to win the Grand American
Handicap, and this event hist year was
won by a man who lives in what may
be termed the metropolitan district.
He is Al Ivins, of Red Bank, N. J., who
stood on the 19-yard mark and broke
99 out of 100 targets.
Naturally, interest in the American
amateur championship and the Grand
American Handicap always is at fever
heat, but this year new features have
been arranged for thtrworld's series of
trapdpm, and one of the most impor?
tant is the Rye-man team champion?
The all-round championship also is a
new feature at the state and /.one tour?
naments. The title has been shot for
three times at the (.?rand American
Handicap tournaments ?f 1918, 1919
and li*20. It will again lie on the pro?
gram for this year's big event, which
will be held on the grounds o*f the

Sandy Hook-lo-Ostend Race
a Big Boon to Water Sport
in Its "Revival Year"
By Jack Lawrence
For two years past old hard-shelled
students of the jib and mainsail have
been saying that the World War killed
yachting. Up and down the Atlantic
seaboard they have sighed lugubriously
that the game was dead and could
never come back. They declared with
dismal assurance that we could never
see again the glorious days that ended
with the cloudburst of 1914.
The rattle, bang and roar of busy
yacht yards, from Charleston to Mas
sachusetts Bay, have silenced the pes?
simists. The pulsating development?
of th<> last two mouths have convinced
a few of them that the game is not
dead, or even ill.
The pessimists have now turned
their funereal "attentions to the pro
posed contest for the gold cup offeree
by the King of the Belgians for an
ocean race from Sandy Hook to Ostend
Their dope is that this event will at
tract no entries because of starvinf
Europe and the general high cost o
Keen Interest in Classic
This argument does not appear t<
stand up in view of the fact that th?
keenest interest in the King's classii
has been shown in the countries tha
have just emerged from five years o
war. To be exact, Belgium itself, onl;
recently freed of the invader, is th?
center of enthusiasm, and the littl?
nation, according to the latest advice:
from abroad, is going to scrape up th'
cash to defray the expenses of sendini
an official entry to the starting lim
olT Ambrose Lightship.
In England, Holland and the Scandi
nsvian countries the trans-Atlantic rac?
has also evoked a great deal of interest
and the indications this week are tha
a field of starters superior to that, sen
away in pursuit of the "phony" troph.
offered by the former Cern?an Kaise
in 1005 could be enlisted if the con
test receives the support from th
United States that it deserves.
If the King Albeit Cup race is bel
it will be the stellar event of a spec
tacular yachting season, a season wit
much more of an international flavo
than that of 1920, when the New Yor
Yacht Club's Resolute turned back Si
Thomas Lipton's fourth attempt t
capture the America's Cup.
If the ocean race is sailed accordin
to the plans suggested to the America
committee by Baron de Cartier, Be
gian Ambassador and at present Kin
Albert's yachting representative in thi
country, the boats will be sent awa
from Sandy Hook at noon on July
and the winner should be sighted o
Ostend in about two weeks. Th:
schedule would bring practically all c
the entries into port at Ostend by Jul
30, which is the Belgian national hoi
Great Meet Off Cowes
t)i.c ?eck later, off Cowes, the se?
oml and perhaps the most interestin
of the two big international maritim
events of the year will be held, whe
four American six-meter sloops, carrj
ing the Marconi, or, more properly, t?
licrmu.dian rig, will meet four B.ritis
boats of the same type for a tropli
which ha/ been offered by the Roy;
Yacht Squadron of Great Britain.
According to reports from Londc
the elimination trials to decide whic
boats are to defend the cup are a
ready under way in the Solent. En?
li'sh yachting critics appear to belie
that the contest for the Royal Yaci
Squadron's trophy is to become an a
nual fixture, and that in the event ?
its being carried off this year by tl
Americans a British challenge will s?

Roy Mack, .sort of Connie" Mack and
president, of the Newark Baseball Club,
?expects to line up a team by the day of
| the International League opening, a
week from Wednesday, that will be able
to hold its own with any in the league.
Jimmy Walsh, the old Athletic and Rod
Sox outfielder, is the manager of the
The team returned to-day from its
Southern training trip at Suffolk, Va.,
and this afternoon will play an exhibi
"" tion game with the Boston Red Sox.
! There are a few -weak spots in the line?
up, but before the opening day Roy
Mack experts his father to send him
a number of players from the Athletics
to plug up these holes. Newark will
open the season at home with Syracuse. ?
Manager Walsh expects to get a sec?
ond baseman, shortstop and two pitch?
ers before the season opens. At pres?
ent the pitching staff is composed of
Finneran, Hill, Jensen. Harper and
Lane. The catchers are Smith and
Walsh to Play Outfield
Walsh will play Kruenenaker at first
i base, Ray at second, Brainey at short
and Webb at third. Kell?y is utility,
inlielder. The outfield is strong, with
McGowan, Walsh and Irving and with
Riggs and Shields in reserve.
There are four other exceptionally
good clubs in the league. They are
Baltimore, the 3920 champions;"" To?
ronto, Buffalo and Rochester. Jack
Dunn has practically the same team
that brought the pennant to the Monu
mental City. In fact, he has a few prom?
ising recruits that should strengthen
Dunn has a pretty sweet ball player
in Jack Bentley, a great pitcher, who
plays first when not on the mound.
Bentley also is a liard hitter. Boley,
the shortstop, is also big league ma?
Maple Leafs Look Strong
Larry Doyle will strengthen the To?
ronto team a great deal,- but? he will
have to get two good pitchers to take
the places of Pat Shea ami Willie
Ryan, who were sold to the Giants. \
Shea won twenty-seven games and lost
seven for Toronto, while Ryan wos
. nineteen and lost nine.
George "Hooks" Wiltse had a good
team in ?Buffa-lo last year,, and he has
nearly the same outfit with him this
season. Buffalo traded Frank Bruggj
to the Phillies for Tragresser, but
| Tragresser will not report to Buffalo
; nd it looks as if the Bisons will recall
[ the husky catcher.
George Stallinge and Walter Hap
' good obtained the Rochester franchise
, and at once started to strengthen the
? team. Fred Merkle will play first base,
while Stallings purchased McCabe, an
outfielder, from Brooklyn. McCabe is
a mighty good ballplayer.

Throwing all caution to the w.-idg, ?,
jare willing to go or, record as ?re/
.dieting the year 1921 a record-breaker
for golf. In making this statement n
I are taking as much chance ai a b^.
I legger on Broadway. What with the
i addition o?" '.ens of thousands of n|hT
era entering the lists this year, tins
various international matches,' th?
[championship tournaments and the hurt
i dreds of club invitation tourney? ff \\
? will be played, the icame of golf will
enjoy its greatest year. Now that that
i secret is out we can proceed wh th*
i rest of the story.

Following the amateur championship
j in which it cpected the American'
; team of Evans, O?imet, Jones and
; others will make a brilliant showing,
: will oome the British women's cham
? pionship meet, May 30-June \.
This tournament will be of particu?
lar interest this year because two 01
the greatest women player.? "1 o evei

Alexa Stirling, will compet?. The clasl
of -this pair, if they do meet. will j,,

much as the American team will probi

June 10-15. and will be followed by th

Next conies the Frenen open cha
pionship tournament at Le Touquet,
which the British and American si
will all participate. The United Sta
open championship at the Col um
Country Club, of Washington, on J

year. Ted Ray will probably come o
to defend his title, and ?be Mitel
and George Duncan will also be
hand to take part in the strife.

Coif Association amateur champion:
at Winnepeg. This tournament '
