The one match that comprised the T.reliminary round, and three first- round matches in the island champion ship tennis tournament, were played off yesterday afternoon, at the Neigh borhood, Beretanla and Pacific tennis clubs. None of the matches were par- ticularly Interesting and there .were no surprises worthy of the name. The most ' Interesting development cf the day was the announcement by A. L. Castle, captain of the Beretanla Tennis Club, and . membet of the tournament committee, that the semi finals and finals of the championship will be played this year at the -Moana hotel courts. The checkerboard effect of light and shadow makes the Bere tanla courts a tennis joke, and It Is unfair to ask players to compete in tournament games there, In addition to the confusing light, the court are surfaced witn a rme gravel mat-puis the players on roller skates. Some of the slides taken, yesterday, measured more than 6 feet The Moana courts are ihe best In town, for, although they are a trITle harder than some of the players are used to, the light Is even in the afternoon, and the footing Js good. Manager Thlele, of the Ter ritorial Hotel Co., has offered them for the tournament, and probably ever. Icfore the semi-final round they win be in use. for some : of , the. matches. Alan Lowrey is. one player who ob jects strenuously to playing at , Bere tanla, and W. B. Izard is another. Army Player Wins. : . . ... The closest match of the day was that between Jack Guard and Lieu tenant Robertson, the Schdfleld Bar racks crack.

Also, the breach which exists be tween the great Frenchman and Man ager Joe Birmingham mayt be event ually bridged - oyer? with the result that Larry will continue in his prea ent role as utility tnflelder and pinch hitter, and possibly break back into the game again as regular second base man. - . - But If Larry cecrdes to quit and holds to that decision, the year of 1913 will mark the passing of the greatest natural batsman . and second baseman that ever lived. . ; - " - . . It will mark the passing of Napol eon Lajoie. after he has been one of the. most . sclntillatiug. figures of the national game for over seventeen years. . . j J : . . - Other .players may show greater speed than Larry today, but gazing back" over a span:of over seventeen years, and noting the wonderful field ng and hitting of the powerful Gaul, can any one imagine that the spec tacular little Eddie Collins or the lit tle ' Trojan ; Johnny Evers will ever establish such a wonderful record ? Baseball players; like men in other walks of life, capnot , go on forever. Unfortunately,, the baseball life of men or . the diamond . Is necessarily a comparative brief one. The time must come when the great est, of the great of base ball must give way -to younger and faster, men. Larry Playing Eighteenth Season. Probably that time hasn't yet arriv ed for Lajoie, but the ,fact that it ia approaching rapidly is : sufficient to send a quiver -. of pain ' through the hearts of the ardent patrons of the nation's finest Bport ' ' ; Larry has been a leading figure In the game since 1806. It was in 18 that he was "discovered" on the Fall river club and hurried off to carve a name In the "hall of base ball fame" as a member of the, Philadelphia club of the National- League " ' ':, Larry pbunded. his way to the atten tion of major "league men; by hitting rival slabmen for an average of .421 in 189C. Oddly, the Fair River team of that year ,was( the only; team to wmcn LArrv ever .neloneed that uron a pennant while.. Larry was a mem ber. But Larry did not remain with Kail River until the pennant was won. Joining Philadelphia in 1896, he started out as a first baseman. He was the "sensational" recruit of the year. His hitting average with the Phillies was .331.' , v'; ;,-.wt Later he switched to second base. There his work was even more spec tacular. Before he had entred his scond season aa a member of the Phil lies, he was one of .the7 idols of the bas balllworld. . He. has held that position ever since. ; -Jumped to! American League. During the days of the historic baseball war between, the American League jind the National League, Lar ry Jumped to the Athletics. Legal complications brought? his release to Cleveland In 1902,. together with El mer Flick and Bill" Bernhard, . . ; His history since that momentous action Is very well ' known to every fan in the country. ' j .With the passing' of "Bill" Armour from the management: of, the Cleve land club Larry advanced to the role of manager. Hfs most successful sea son In. that capacity was 1908, when tho Naps, finished second to Detroit by one-half a gane in the most , mad dening pennant race in the annals of the American League.. : . During his entire ball career Lar ry's , batting, average has slipped f be low the magic .20t) mark only twice. That was during that nerve-racking 1908 campaign, and also the 1907 campaign, when Larry was beset with managerial woe3 of snfficient weight to .weaken and ; affect the most pow erful batting, eyes. .: ' ? With the team traveling poorly In 1909 he gave up the reins to "Jim" McGuire. Since then he had been a private in the ; ranks, but always a private respected alike by friend and foe and admired .for his baseball abili ty by , all fandomj Eroken Hands Start Trouble, ( Starting the season of. 1913, Larry gave every indication of polishing off nis eignieentn year and making it s'nnd on a par with the best of his past His work during the early games of .the season and until the bones in his two hands were broken by Pitcher Klepfer of New York, at League Park, Sunday, May 11, was one the brightest features of a num- j ber of bright features by the Cleve land club. , ,-'. - :.'! Frici ion between Larry and Birm ingham undoubtedly is one of the rea sons for the action taken at Chicago yesterday. Just what the cause of that friction is we do, not know, but we know this, that It affects two strong-willed partfes.
