Johnston Conquers Patterson in Spectacular Five-Set Match
10,000 Watch Californian
Humble Australian Star;
Brookes Forced to Limit
Garland Extends Veteran to Five Sets; Tilden Has
Task Disposing of Kumagae in National Tennis
Tourney; McLoughlin to Face Williams To-day
By Fred Hawthorne
"The greatest day of tennis seen on American courts," was the uni?
versal verdict of the 10,000 persons who filled the stands to overflowing
?nd stood for hours under a hot sun at every vantage point yesterday
afternoon, when William M. Johnston hammered out the final point in
the desperate five-set match that gave him the victory over Gerald L.
Patterson, the stalwart Australian "Hurricane," in the fourth round of
the national championship singles lawn tennis tournament at the West
Side Tennis Club, of Forest Hills.
Johnston, winning by a score of 6?2, 3?6, 6?4, 4?6, 7?5, was
given a wild demonstration after the match when he marched off the
court toward the clubhouse. With one accorff, like giant waves, those
in the towering stands rose and roared forth a welcome to this slender,
freckled-faced, American youth from the shores of the Pacific, who had
just humbled the great Australian who bears the title of world's champion.
Then one man tossed a seat cushion ';
into the air. It sailed out over the j
fieid and came skidding down through ;
the air, to land r.eur the court. This'
seemed to be the signal for the thou
studs who had watched the interna-?
tional struggle on the courts for more >
than two hours to show their enthusi- j
asm both for victor and vanquished,
in another ten seconds the a.r was ?
filled with flying pillows, which fell like !
giant flakes of snow upon ?he court, j
Julian S. Myrick, vice-president of the ?
National Tennis Association, seized a
megaphone and implored the pillow
tossers to stop lest some one should be
injured, but he might as well have tried
to turn back Niagara itself.
No one was hurt, however, and John?
ston and Patterson^ marched, smiling, !
through the rain of pillows. Nothing j
Ilk? this had been seen since the Davis
Cup matches of 1914. on these same i
courts, when McLoughlin downed the j
mighty Brookes. In fact, the crowd '
yesterday was even more wildly demon?
strative than en that other notable oc- ?
There were other great matches dur- '
:ng the day. and the eight men who .
came through to the round before the !
semi '.nal well earned their places in !
the great tourney.
Williams Drops One Set
William T. Tiiden. 2d. of Philadel?
phia, had to go through five swiftly
played sets before he could take the
measure of little Ichiya Kumagae, of
Japan, by a score of 6?4, 6?1. 1?6,
4?6, 6?2. Richard Xorris Williams.
'2d, of Boston, champion of lull and
1016, dropped the first set of his match j
against Ronald V. Thomas, of Aus- j
traita, before he could bring America's I
colors to the top by a score of 4?6, ?
6?1, 6
Robert ?Lindley Murray, of Niagara ?
Palls, the playing-through champion,'
went through Conrad B. Doyle, of;
Washington, by a score of 6?2, 6?2,
6?3, and Maurice E. McLoughlin, ofl
California, still without serious oppo-|
sition in the tourney, took young Percy
L Kynaston, of Long Island, into camp!
by a score of 6?2, 6 ? -, S ?6. Norman i
Brooke-, Patterson's doubles partner)
and once 'nailed as the world's greatest j
player, was carried to the full live sets j
before he could quell Charle- S. Gar- ?
land, of Pittsburgh, one of the bright
est of the younger players in this
country, the score going at I?6, 2?6. |
6?1, 6?2, 7 ?"..
The remaining two matches of the
afternoon found Wallace F. Johnson, of
Philadelphia, the winner over Nathaniel
Vf. Niles, of Boston, at 4?6, 6- 4.
6?2, -i?!, and Walter Merrill Hall, of
this city, Middle States champion, a
victor over Theodore Roosevelt Peil, of
New York, by a score of 6?1, 'J?".
0?6, 6
Glancing over the list of those re?
maining in the tournament, we find
that there is ?-very promise this after?
noon of another day of sensational
struggles for supremacy.
Four High (,rade Matches
Murray vs. Johnston. Wallace John
ton vs. Hall, Tilden va. Brooke^ and
Willitms vs. McLoughlin.
Murray and Johnston are old rivals,
and both are going at their best right
now. Johnston has almost uniformly
defeated the present, champion, but
this meeting will be harder fought,
probably, than any of their former
clashes." Johnson and Hall are liable to
put up another great struggle, Johnson,
with his chop stroke, being ligured a
slight favorite over the hard driving
Tilden and Brookes have never met,
and the interest in this match will be
intense, sine?' so many peopl?; are anxi?
ous to sec how the brilliant Phila?
delphia? will fare again.-t the crafty
court master. Personally, I look to
T i-iiien to conquer the veteran Aus?
tralian, bur the struggle will undouht
edly be a bitter one, and Tilden must
not lag it" he hopes to crush his rival.
Williams and McLoughlin! A match
between these two should be enough
to crowd the West Side Club stands
'rom bottom row to top. Williams tore
the national championship crown from
''Red Mac's" touseled head at Newport
jn 1914, and again defeated the great.
"If1met" in the national tourney of
1S16. Playing as he has been for the
'?it two days, Williams should leave
the court a winner this afternoon.
I do not believe there i^ a man in
America to-day who can defeat the
Williams who vanquished Willis Davis
?n Thursday, t'nless McLoughlin can
uncover a game 50 per cent stronger
than anything he has shown this
reason, Williams looks like a certain

Johnston's beautifully accurate over?
hand volleys.
Promise of Real Tussle
Il gave every promise, even thus
early, of developing into one of the
classic matches of tennis history.
There was the keeness of international
competition in it, the CTeslre to see if
the popular little Johnston had really
succeeded in "coming back" after his
year's absence in the service, and the
evident determination of both men to
tight their way to victory.
Patterson was holding his own thus .
far. racing into mid-court, with giant
strides to mee; the terrific forehand
drives that Johnston was shooting
across the court. The games went to
2-al! before the first break in service
caTne, an?i then it was the powerful
Anzac who faltered, after the points
had gone to "deuce." Swiftly as In;
rushed into the volleying position, the
Australian could not get there ?juickly
enough to head off that lightning- fore?
hand drive that sent the ball diving
iow into fore-court to catch Patterson
squarely at his feet.
Johnston, who had won the fifth
game on his own service, took the
sixth bn Patterson's "cannon-ball" de?
livery, making the games score 4?2,
and then he continued with an unbeat?
able rush to victory, winning the last
two games for the tirst set at ??2.
The Californian drew thunders of ap?
plause from the stands by the bril?
liant manner 111 which he wa.i catch?
ing the stalwart Australian out of po?
sition in the tierce driving duels.
Johnston held the service at the
start of the second set and won his
game with ripping forehand drives
across court, the ball striking just at
the juncture of service court and cen?
tre lines with marvellous accuracy. It
was as though the little man from the
Coast had selected that point as a
bull's-eye, and he was hitting the mark
in deadly fashion.
Patterson was gradually speeding up
in his same, and his backhand, which
Johnston had been hammering unceas?
ingly, became stronger and more re?
liable under the assault. When he
: could not reach mid-court in time t?,
take the Johnston drives on th?' full
i volley Patterson picked the ball un
I with dazzling half-volleys and shot
j the ball straight back at the eager
rushing Johnston, and with such speed
! that the American, in turn, was caught
out of position and forced to "dig" to
: get the ball up.
The Australian was fully alive tc
' the danger now and was wasting not
a seaond in storming the net and
; smothering Johnston's returns by su
! perb volleying. He took the second
j game and then broke through his op
; ponent's service in the third. John
: ston won the fourth, taking Patterson's
i delivery, and then the Australian re
i taiiuted by winning the fifth on his
I rival"?? service, making the games score
3?2 in his favor. They divided the
next two games, with the pace grow?
ing faster every minute, and then
Patterson won the eighth with beauti?
ful back and forehand drives straight
down tho side lines.
Johnston held the service in the
! tenth and last game, but it was the
Australian ?"Hurricane" he was facing
? now, and Patterson won the set, earn

ing the points with tremendous fore- !
hand drives through deep court. On
the last point he shot the ball right to
Johnston's feet as the Californian
reached a point half way between the
base line and the net. The set was
Patterson's at 6 ? 3, and the match was
all square again.
It was Patterson's turn to lead otT
with the service in the third set, but
this time it was not an advantage, for
Johnston broke through, aided by that
same deadly forehand drive shot
across the court. On rawt of these
shots Patterso.i was caught, in such a
position that he had to take the bai!
at his feet, and on his backhand.
Has Trouble With Service
Johnston began experiencing trouble
on his own service, the first ball not
going in, and Patterson. (Irving terrifi?
cally off his powerful forehand, broke
through and tied the score. They had
been battling for almost forty minutes
and were exactly even. The Australian
made it '- ! by winning the third gam !
on his delivery, volleying beautifully :m
he came striding down the court from
his base line.
The next two games were divided, and
then Johnston squared the match ^win?
ning the sixth game on service. In the
seventh he broke through the Austral?
ian's delivery, and then won the eighth,
making the games score 5? 3. in this
game the little Californian served four
time? in a row straight to Patterson's
backhand, the Anzac messing up his re?
turns miserably. Patterson made a
great stand in the ninth, winning the
game after one of his terrific service
had been called out, for a double-fault,
when the points stood at 30? all.
This appeared to stir the Australian,
and he took the game by winning the
two following points, the last on a
tremendous smash of Johnston's deep
lob. It was 5?4 in Johnston's favor,
and the great crowd was athrill with
excitement. The American took the !
tenth game for the third set at 6 ?4,
smashing Patterson's return of service
for the last point.
After the seven-minute rest Patter?
son w?s the first to return to the court.
He seemed anxious to (jet started
again, and Johnston followed a minute
later, smiling at the crowd as the ap?
plause swept from both stands across
the court.
Runs I'p Lead Quickly
The Australian started service and
won the first game, but then Johnston
began a terrific driving and severe vol?
leying attack and yuiekly ran into a
lead of 4? 1 on games and to 30 0 on
points in the sixth came. It did not
seem possible, at that stage, for Pat?
terson to stave off defeat, considering
the machine-like manner in which
Johnston was winning his points.
But here the Australian proved him?
self a mighty foeman worthy of the
best traditions of the game. Disre?
garding everything Johnston sent over,
Patterson stormed the net with rare
courage and power, smothering his op?
ponent's shots by superb volleying,
whether from deep court or close to
the net. Steadily the Australian
crawled up. game by game, until he
was even at 4-al!, and then he broke
through service in the ninth, cutting
off Johnston's lightning drives. There
was small chance for him to smash a!!
through the match, for Johnston kept
the ball always low.
Patterson won the set at 6 '1 by tak?
ing the tenth game with two marvel?
lous drives down the side lines to
Johnston's backhand. The little Cali?
fornian grinned widely in appreciation
' as he made a desperate but futile back?
hand stab at the last shot as the ball
nicked the side line for an ace. The
' match was all square again.
Anzac Battles Gamely
In the last set Johnston went, into a
i lead of 5?3, and then Patterson
squared the match again by wonderful
fighting courage and dazzling volley?
ing. But Johnston was not to be
turned aside when victory beckoned so
close at hand. He won the eleventh
game after Patterson, serving, had
led at 40?15 on pom's. The Aus?
tralian missed two easy volleys to the
side by a hair's breadth, however, and
the final point on a backhand volley
into the net.
Johnston won the twelfth game for
the set at " -5 and the match, earning
the final point when Patterson netted
a low backhand half-volley of John?
ston's terrine drive to the centre of
the court as the Australian came run?
ning in.
Garland, after taking the first two
sets from Brookes bv extremely ac?
curate placing from deep court, could
not hold the veteran back from the
volleying position in the third and
fourth. In the fifth, again, after
Brookes had run into a lead on games.
the young Pittsburgh player squared
? the match at 5 all on games by rare
work, outguessing his great opponent
many times.
But Brookes was too crafty a court
general to be caught napping, and he
kept Garland on a mad chase after his
beautifully placed shots, taking the
last two games for the match.

Hooairk Falls Handicap;!
Odds-On T.oses Opener!
By W. J. Macbeth
SARATOGA, Aug. 29.?The Oneck |
Stable's Thunderclan won the Hoosick
Falls Handicap, at a mile and a quar- |
ter, the feature of the racing card here
this afternoon. The victory was de?
cidedly popular with the regulars, for
Thunderclap was an odds-on favorite.
R. T. Wilson, jr.'s, Thunderstorm wa?
second, and W. R. Coe's Athlon??
third. F. D. Weir's Tetley, which |
brought up the rear, was the only j
other starter.
Fairbrother rode an excellent race j
with Thunderclap and brought him
home in 2:05. as fresh and strong, ap- [
parently, as at the start. Thunder- '
storm, on the other hand, was ail in at
the finish. He burned himself out in i
chasing Athlone to the stretch. Tet- :
ley was prominent for less than half
the way.
The card to-day was a rather ordi?
nary one perhaps in view of the rich
prize money that will be given away in
three big stakes that always celebrate
getaway day here.
E. R. Bradley put over another good ?
one in the fifth race, at a mile, in the
imported four-year-old Sunstar colt, 1
Porte Drapeau. P. G. King finished '
out strong and took the place, while :
Wilfreda was third. It was only a :
breeze for Porte Drapeau, which felt j
so good after the race that he ran |
around the track a couple of times to ?
celebrate. Little Boyle was unable to j
stop him until Porte Drapeau ran !
Favorite Beaten in First ,
The ?lay started with an upset.
Hurry, the odd-on favorite of the
opening dash, at live and a half fur
longs, ha?i to be content with second
money. Bvtckhorn II. handed McClel
land's colt a good trimming, principally
because of the fact that the fatter
would not run kindly for Schuttinger.
Hurry tried to run out all the way I
and Schuttinger made so much use of
thn coli m holding him in that he had.
little left when let down. He refused
to run straight even in the stretch.
It looked at the head of the stretch as:
if Hurry could win as far as he pleased
and then he started to sulk. Sadie D.
finished third.
R. F. Carman's Startling won the :
second dash, at six furlongs, under a
good ride on the part of Buddy En sor.
He beat Sarn Hildreth's Lord Brighton
by half a length. Uld Rosebud finished :
third, a length and a half further back,
but was disqualified, so that George.
Starr got third money. Rosebud just,
about knocked everything down at the ,
tirst turn. Of them all (.'rank suffered;
the most. Ensor steered his mount1
clear of the trouble. He came on
around the field and won handily.
Tiie mile race, which was third on
the progranim?1, witnessed the down- |
fall of another favorite. Paul Con?
nelly's Dorcas, which was simply raced
into the ground by E. C. Griffith's Sedan.
Sedan won just about as he "pleased,
while Dorcas folded in the last furlong!
so badly he could not withstand the
challenge of Harry Breivogel for the
Truly Rural in Front
Harry Payne Whitney's two-year-old
filly Truly Rural won the closing
dash, of five furlongs, in most striking
fashion and in the commendable time :
of U:58 3-5.
To-morrow marks the close of the !
most successful race meeting ever con- :
ducted at Saratoga. Like the good
host of the parable, the racing asso
ciation saved its good wine for the end
of th?1 feast. Three stakes of unusual
interest are on the getaway card. The
most discussed, of course, is the Hope?
ful, for two-year-olds at six furlongs. ,
This event ranks in importance and
monetary worth with the Futurity, to .
be run at Belmont Park a week later,
and the best of the ju"eniles will be \
out for the glory and coin.
Samuel Riddle's great Man o' War,
which has b?en beaten only once, and
then by a fluke, will be the odds-on
favorite for the field of eight in the
Hopeful, which will be worth more than ]
$rjO,()?O to the winner this year.
The Saratoga Cup. at a mile and six ;
furlongs, has attracted only three en-.
tries. The great three-year-old, Pur?
chase, will "meet Exterminator and
Thunderstorm over the route. Some
disappointment is expressed that Com
mander Ross did not send out Cudgel,
considered one of the best horses in
training over a distance of ground.
The Saratoga Steeplechase Handicap,
at about two and a half miles, brings
together four good timber-toppers? I
Babcock, Elysian, Hibler and Belle o'
the Sea.
Murray Again to Coach
Fencers at Columbia
Columbia University's committee on
athletics yesterday reappointed James
Murray fencing coach for the coming
season. Mr. Murray has been at. Co?
lumbia for many years and has been
successful in turning out championship
The Columbia foilsmen have been in '
the forefront of the sport for the last
four or five years. To Murray goes the
credit for developing Louis Mouquin
and M. J. Bloomer, captains of last
year's and this year's teams. Both
Bloomer and Mouquin won the individ?
ual intercollegiate championship in
their years. In addition to Bloomer.
Forster, of last year's championship
team, will return to college in the fall.

Foreign Mermaids
Bring Their Tour
To Sudden End
By A. C. Cavagnaro
The tour of this country of the two
Australian mermaids. Miss Fanny Du
rnck and Miss Wilhelmina Wylie, came
to a sudden end yesterday when they
notified Frederick W. Rubien, chairman
of the national championship commit?
tee, that they would not again exhibit
in this country.
The two swimmers have caused
trouble for the A. A. U, from the mo?
ment they started in their first exhibi?
tion in Chicago. On this occasion they
refused to compete in scratch races
preferring handicaps contests with
their rivals receiving liberal allowance::
The climax came last Thursday evenin?
in Philadelphia when Mis3 Durack re?
fused to start on scratch with Miss
Charlotte Boyle and Miss Ethelds
Bleibtrey, both of this city, in a 300
yard race. Miss Durack demanded thai
both Misses Boyle and Bleibtrey star
with handicaps.
The result was that Miss Duracl
would not swim against her two Nev
York rivals, who then proceeded ti
give an exhibition over the 300-yan
distance, clipping ten seconds off th
American record. It was said tnat evei
Miss Durack held a watch during th
contests. Later Miss Durack wa
"booed" for many minutes when sh
appeared to race against Miss Kleno
Uhl, a Quaker mermaid. Miss Durac
resented this treatment, and after swim
ming alone several times up and dow
the tank, left the building.
The Philadelphia officials thereupo
suspended both Miss Wylie and Mis
Durack and asked the national chan
pionship committee io bar them fro:
further competitions in this country.
Rubien got into communication wit
the two girts yesterday by telephor
and after a lengthy conversation tr
tour was declared at an end. It ws
learned last night, that Miss Durac
did not contemplate returning ?mm
diately to Australia, but would rema
in this city until Christmas, it wi
also said that Miss Ilurack would n
swim in the 880-yard national chat
pionship contest at Rye, N. Y., to-dt
in which Miss Boyle and Miss Blei
trey are both scheduled starters.
The Australian girls carne here s
weeks ago and took part in three co
tests. At Chicago Miss Durack a:
Miss Wylie managed to win a ra
each by the scantiest of margii
However, they met an upset in tr
city. Miss Durack faced Miss Boj
and Miss? Blei'btrey in the 44'i-y?
national championship and was fore
to take third place behind the t
American girls in record breaki
Miss Wylie was beaten in a bret
stroke in actual time, although s
allowed handicaps. Later Miss Dura
failed to overcome handicaps in a 2;
yard race at the Todd Shipyards A.
