Tennis Players Gather in Southland tt 9 tt National Cue Event Attracts Stars tt tt tt Equipoise Lost Coin by Bad Starts CUMMER sports of the north are the winter sports of the south, so we find the tennis stars of the nation crowding the heels of the golfers who have been cashing in on winter tournaments. The first big tennis‘tournament to draw the big names to Dixieland is the Miami Biltmore all-south cham pionship, singles and doubles, to be staged there Jan. 23-29. Among the boys who will take their cuts at the- ball will be George Lott, Gregory Mangin, Clifford Sutter, Berkeley Bell and Marcel Rain ville, in addition to numerous stars of the south. Lott, Chicago court hash of a couple of years back, is a well-known Davis cup player. Mangin, former college player’from Georgetown, who holds the national indoor title and who played abroad last year, is figured to be a hard fellow to beat in the singles. Sutter is former national intercollegiate titleholder. Berkeley Bell, the young Texan, has been in the top ten of tennis for the last few seasons, and Rainville is one of the best players Canada has turned out, having taken part in the Canadian Davis cup matches. Other well-known names to take part in this tournament will be Carol Turner and Gus Fuer, winner and runner-up in the Florida state championship matches last year; Jarvis Adams, national veterans doubles winner with Henry Bassford, and Searles Barnett, middle western veter ans' champion. After the Miami tournament it is expected that the racqueteers will tour the south and far west following the trail of the golf carnival. a a a u a a COCHRAN INVADES THREE-RAIL PASTIME WELKER COCKRAN of Hollywood, Cal., who on next Monday will make his first bid for three-cushion billiard championship honors, is anxious to be the first balkline player to win such a title. Cochran was seeded into the western sectional semi-finals and finished his sched ule of six games without a defeat, turning in the best grand average of the four sections. He registered 300 points in 270 innings ior an average of 1.111. J. N. Bozeman of Vallejo, Cal., also a seeded player in the same sec tion, was second, having lost only one game and that to Cochran. He totaled 293 points in 291 innings, with an average of 1.006. Frank S- Scovillc of Buffalo, winner in the eastern sectional semi-finals, was third with an average of 1 000 for 391 points scored m the same number of innings. Both Scoville and Bozeman saw action in the world's tournament held last year in Chicago. Cochran expects to lead the field of nine other billiard stars at the end of the 45-game tournament which starts Monday night in the Windy City. Cochran was born in Manson, lowa, in October, 1896, and started to play billiards when 12 years of age in his father’s billiard parlor. n tt tt a a a BEHAVIOR AT BARRIER IS IMPORTANT THE temperament may be a money-maker for prima donnas, but it works the reverse for thoroughbred race horses. Temperament costs thoroughbreds races, and losing races cost money. Big money, too, if the temperamental thoroughbred happens to be such an ace as C. V. Whitney’s Equipoise. Frank Ortell, turf expert of the New York World-Telegram, has figured out that temperament, as displayed in behavior at the barrier cost the chestnut son of Pennant no less than $50,000 last year. Equipoise earned $lO7 375—more than any other 4-ycar-old ever has garnered in a single season—but would have far exceeded that figure had he seen fit to act right at the past. Equipoise was beaten by a head by Plucky Play in the $22,000 Ar lington handicap. The Whitney star delayed this race nearly ten minutes, and then broke badly, forcing him to make up much ground. Almost the same thing happened in the Washington handicap, worth $14,800. Equipoise bucked at the barrier for eleven minutes, and was beaten out by Tred Avon. His bad manners probably were responsible for his defeat by Jack High and Gallant Sir in the $5,450 Laurel. This evil disposition at the past is nothing new' with Equipoise. As a 2-year-old he refused to go into stall gates, thus earning the enmity of the assistant starters, who, naturally, saw that he didn’t get any the best of it. In his juvenile year, Equipoise was just as fractious. Had he been mannerly he probably would have wone the rich Futurity, for, despite all his cutting up, Jamestown beat him out by less than a length. a a ts a a a JONATHAN A.

And when he tells you that "man for man we're as good as the Cubs, and our left-handers oughta stop the Pirates cold.” you gain the im pression that Frankie feels that 1933 will see the Cardinals regain the glory that was theirs in 1931.
