match ln the challengo 'round of the
Day is Cup, 'started the second day's
playln the national lawn tennis singles
championships on the courts of the Ger
mantown Cricket "Club, Mnnhelm, at
noon "today against Marshall Allen, the
youthful star from Seattle.
Allen stood up well under the. fire
from Shlmldzu's rncnuetjn the first set,
but lost, 0-3. Shlmldzu's placements
were too much for the Westerner In the
second set, and the Jap. won a love set.
Tho Pacific Coast" boy played great
tennis In the third set, nnd carried the
game right to the Oriental representa
tive. Tho games switched first from
ono to the other, nnd they were all even
when they started the fifteenth game.
The 12 o'clock whistles wcro blow
ing in near;by factories when Zcuzo
Shimldzu, of Japan, wearing his funny
little hat. toddled out on the court to
battle with Marshall Allen, of Seattle.
Allen Is one of the best junior plajcrs
on the coast, but that meant nothing
today, lie was expected to osc.
Crovd Slow" In Arriving
As Is always the case, the crowd was
slow in making nn appearance. When
the opening match began, not more than
two hundred spectators were In the
stands. Tennis fans do not allow thejr
favorite sport tokintcrfcrc with their
The, slim nudlcnco .was treated to some
rare tennis in court No. 1 when Shi
mldzu started to work on his youthful
opponent. The little Jap kept banging
the ball over the net to back court, sel
dom ran forward and played to Allen's
back hand. The youngster found it dif
ficult to keep the ball out of the net or
insido the lines, nnd lost the first two
gomes. .He won the third, but Shi
mldzu took the fourth, making the score
3 to 1.
The fifth game was hotly contested
nnd wen,t to deuce three times. Both
volleyed wel), nnd the spectators ,wcrc
astounded at the wonderful defensive
game put up by the little athlete from
Nippon. He rushed alljjjr the court,
made almost impossible returns, placet!
his shots, and Alien could nqt get the
ball past hm.
Once the youngster made a retftrn
from 'the'back court; -The-bal-lilt,the

side. Nine flmes out ot ten this .would
count as a certain point, but Shimldzu
sprinted, reached the. ball and made a
beautiful placement shot for thegomc
Shlmidzu ran Allen nil over the court
nnd soon had the score 5 to 1. The Pa
cific Coast star pulled himself together
in sthV seventh game and won after the
Tap. had carried it to deuce. Allen
also took the eighth on Shlmldzu's
serve, 4 points to 1. Shimmy grew a
trifle cureless and netted many of his
Allen playeiUbetter in the next game
and scored th first three points on his
opponent's errors. Two were In the net
and the other out of bounds. Then the
youngster netted three nnd knocked one
out of bounds, giving the Jap the nd
vantage. After a vnllev Allen wnllopcd
another too hard and Shimldzu won the
first set. 0-3.
Shimldzu quickly won the first three

TUSTIN IN BREAK
Dispute Over Care of Mental
Cases May Cause Changes
MAYOR WILL INTERFERE
An open controversylias broken out
between Director Tustln of the De
partment pf Public Welfare, and Di
rector Furbush of the Department of
Public Health, that may result in some
changes in the Mayor's Cabinet. Thn
row was made public by a statement
written yesterday by the Mayor and
issued by him today. '
The Mayor's statement said thnt "nn
acute situation" hnd risen between the
two departments that the .Mayor might
be called on "to decide toy speedily."
He ndded thaV "upward'of two hundred
feeble-minded, Idiotic and epileptic
public charges were sufferers through
this difference of opinion."
The trouble between the two depart -
mentsjs no secret to the people who
know what Is going on in City Hall.
It dates back to the time ot the
inauguration of the new city charter.
Before that time the Department of
Public Health had chargo of the cltyl
hospitals, the Home for the Indigent
at Holmcsburg nnd the Byberry Farms.
The new charter gave the Director of
Public Welfare charge ot the Home for
the. Indigent and also the House of
Correction, whieh-forn&erly was. under
the jurisdiction of, the Department of
rublic Safety, 't
According to 'Director Tustln an
agreement wns entered Into betwcn the
two departments that only the physi
cally and mentally well Would be cared
for at the Home for the Indigent. He
says that this institution is primarily
for those who, through age, poverty or
somo similar reason, become public
charges, lie alleges that the Depart
ment of Public Health has not lived
un to this ncreement and has "nllcd
212 fccble-m)nded. idiotic and epileptic
natlcnts unon us."
"While I wns away sick," Director
Tustin said, "ninety-seven Insane
women were sent to the Home for the
Indigent. These arc forced by clrcum
stances to associate with about 400
sane women. They also sent twenty
seven inanc men. who must live with
a large group of sane men. We have
no provision to take care of these pa
ticnts. We have only one doctor and
a very few nurses. The Insnnc patients
mnke so much trouble that it is impos
sible to bathe them in the showers in
tho basement and they have to be bathed
iu their quarters."
Other details of alleged insanitary
nnd inefficient methods were given bv
Director Tustln. who nsserts thnt such
patients should be taken enre of nt the
Philadelphia General Hospital.
The climax of the trouble came yes.
terday. when eight wheel-chair pa
tients were sent to thellome for the In-
Ldlgent from the Department of Public
Health. Director Ttistiu said that the
people had to be taken in because of
humanity, hut that he called up and
refused to take twelto more that he had
linon Informed werp romlnc. lie tlipn
'went to see the Mayor, with the result
thnt the Mnvor issued his statement.
Director Furbush refused to discuss
the matter this morning, saying that
he hnd not heard of the'Mnyor Issuing
a statement and thnt he did not wish
to get into trouble with any one.
