In ?pite of their double victory, tl

work of the pair was as smooth ai
machine-like as usual, but th.rir execi

and his partner -bowed signi of stage

Occasionally Mcl.nughlin was his in?
imitable, irresistible self, placing,

skill, and at such times he dominated
the court On the whole, however, the

that two or three weeks will put him on

In the morning it was Rehr who
proved the sensation and almost csused
an unprecedented upset by his splendid
uphill battle sgsinst Williams. The
Harvard man and the Middle States
champion had been compelled to post?
pone their semi-tinsl match in the sin
gler yesterday, when each had taken a
sel mu? the score trat I gaine.i to 1 in
Willians's favor in the final session.
It looked hopeless for Rehr when he

would experience any difficulty in run?

But they had not taken inte account
the heights to which Behrcan rise when
faced by stern necessity. The Middle
States champion immediately began a
brilliant, irresistible attack, against
which William?, line a player as he is,
was utterly unable to compete. Need?
ing hut a single game againrt the live
I thai ipponenl required, the
. rank ig player in this country
?vas unequal t.. the'task until Behr had
evened the games ?core at ? -all.
In the eleventh game, with both men
fighting in a supreme effort, Williams
broke through Behr's service after the
latter had made two costly errors by
sending the ball out by inches.
Leading again at 6?3, Williams be?
gan the service that was to end in vie- ,
tory for him. Neither man would yield
an inch, and six times the game went
to deuce before Behr gained "advant?
Behr needed only a single point to
bring him even again with his rival,
hut Williams rallied at length and
scored an ace on a beautiful shot to the
far corner of the court. Speeding un
hil attack, Williams scored the last
two points and gained the match.
