Mrs. Maliory Starts 1?
Former Queen of Courts
Triumphs in 'Love' Sets
Famous Norse Girl EL'minates Miss Katherine Cor
nell by 6?0, 6?0 in First Round of Club
Championship Tournrment at Heights Casino
By Fred Hawthorne
... Mrs. Franklin I. Maliory, who, as Miss Molla Bjurstedt, heM prac
tcftlly undisputed sway Over American lawn tennis from 1915 to 1918,
^egran her sixth season on the courts of this country yesterday in her ;
-:.-..---?.-.! manner. In other words, the famous Norse girl won her'
match from Miss Katherine Cornell, of Brook'yn, hy a score of 6?0, j
6?0 in the first round of the women's annual club championship tourney !

It was unfortunatc, perhaps, for Mi?;<
CotneH that she should be offered upi
a$ the first sacrifice before the merci- j
k$s pace set by the former national
j troman ch-rnpion. She is a young and
irsxperienced playcr. and everybody
present at the courts yesterday took it
fek' grarted that Mis. Mailory would
make short work of the match, yet 1
dn not believe anybody there expected
wch an overwhelming victory for
"Marvelcus Molla."
As was to have been expected, Miss
.Cornell was p'ainly suffering from
"stag<r fright" when she took the court,
tnd she did not entirely recover her
p-.ise until after it was all over, but
she fought pluckily against hopeless
odds. and never gave up trying for
Spced Decided Issue
It was ?peed. speed speed. that Mrs.
Malloly used from first point to last
tnd th:3 excess of pace and hard hit
tingr seemed to leave Miss Cornell in aj
kind of bewilderment, as though she!
hsd been unoxpectedly beset by a tor
nado. The former national titleholde
kept the bail always !ow, driving with
tr-mendous pace otf fore and backh nd
and occa sionally running in fre-m hei
base line to take the bail on the fufl
voitey and send it crashing hack int.
the opposing court for p acement aces.
Miss Corne 1 found the bail coming
back at h r with such dizzy speed tha
s'-e mas requent y eaught many fee*
eut o; position, nnd it must have beer
discournging to face the relentlcss at
inck but ihe s'.uck to her task anr
earned npplause from the ga.lrry (,c

games, on'y to have Anderson, with a
ierco tutack at the net run ofF five
7';nu-s in a row. A^ain in t e ? econd
s-?ssi n of play the veteran worked up
a_z???(?. lead to lose his advantage after
his young opponent worked rn to full
speed. .Anderson was servin^'weil and
with lots of "paue," and his tre

Special Correspon-lence
NEW HAVEN, Conn. Jan. 10.?"The
Yale Alumni Week'.y," in its current
issue, deplores the expenditures of\
large sunis of monsy for paid coaches i
to develop football and other branches '>
of sport, not only at Ya'e, but in other l
universities. The regulation of the
training table for varsity sports is
commended. Ath etes now pay their
own board at training tables as they
wou d in Commons.
"The lapse o other raforras long
desired" c ntinues The Week'v "bv
those who wish to see coilege at'hletics I
freed from all traces of professnnal
ism and commercialism, is to be re- i
gretted. The theory of the pcrmanent
coach, attached to the facu ty is a good
one. It hits at the buse of the coach
mg question?one o the mo t diific.il
as present day tendencns ga in our'
coilege athletics. We had hoped that
there wou d be a more general move I
in this direction, as athetics were re- I
sumed after the war, than the official
report on the situation di closes. !
"Up to a very few years ago, the
paid seasonal varsity football co--ch I
was unknown at least at Yale. The I
movement start.ed however, nnd is now !
under strong headway. It ought not to I
cost Yale $15 000 a year to secure an j
experiencid and suitab e grrduate help
to put a strong footba.l eleven on the
fie d for ten wteks.
"Outside of the co^t o.r miintaining I
a ye^r round coach who could be usefu'
in olher ways, and amonab'e to facuUy
standards of coilege sporls, we ought
not tc be under the necessity of payfng
mybody. That this is heresv we are
quite aware will be the opinion of
some. But we are frank to say that
e do not like the tendency of late
vears in this re pect and could wish it
changed. We brlieve in varsitv teann
rnd in turning tht.m out as we 1 dril'ed
and as cap-b e of nr.ishing the season

It'a Coming!
. Oncc upcn a m 'dnlght dreary
(This is all J'll nip from Poe),
While I pondercd in my eerie
Ldtle Harlem bungaloio,
Came a hunch that lohlspcrcd to me,
"Spring, old klck, is d awlng near"?
And I hcard the cchoes tvoo me
With the chorus of a cheer.
As I opened an ep'stle
Writtcn to me in a sc awl,
1 could hcar the bhub'ids whislle
And ihe thud of bat and bail;
Of all ha, blngcrs the leader
LUce a May brecze through the flnt?
"To cblige a Constant Reader,
? Publisti 'Cnscy at the Bat.'"
Few things nre immortal. Stray calls still come in
tc repubiish the epic of the fantcuis s'ugger who
padrKed the ozone in a pinch where ten years ago these
:ahs cluttered up the daily mail. A new generation is
coming to which "the mighty Casey" will be something
les? than a myth.
Now that Pat Moran has lifted the sable spell above
Cincinnati, it remains for some new hero tc \urn the j
same trick in beha.'f of the New York Yank-,. ^s, the I
Ce^eland Indians, Washington and the two St. Louis i
aiubs. These five ciubs have boen toiling between I
Lwenty and forty years without evoiving a winner. i
And Pat Moran, unfortunate y, can oniy be in one p.ace !
at approximately the same time.
Pat, having cracked the ho^doo at Phi'adalphia and
Cincinnati, has cjmpleted his share. PIus 33 per cent.
Concerning Abdkaiions
Ages at which heavyweight champions were abrupt
y retired ave as follows:
Sullivan at 34,
Corbett at 32.
Fitzsimmons at 36.
Jeffries at 35.
Johnson at 37.
Willard at 37.
The average age of abdication here is 35. If Jack
Dempsey lasts until he is as o!d as Corbett, the young
2f,t champion to go, he will have an eight year reign
from the date he dropped Willard.
If he lasts until he attains the average age of abdi-'
;ation he will still have eleven years to serve. But
Dempsey, with all his terrific punching power, is hardiy
deStined to inhabit the peak for eleven years.
Another Briton
Dear Sir: I notice that H. H. L. infers that Bob
Fitzsimmons was the greatest heavyweight Engianc!
sver sent forth. No one can or will deny but what Fit?
was a great fighter?but your correspondant has over
looked one of the greatest fighters that England has
produced since the palmy days of Jem Mace, and that
was the late Chariie Mitcheil, a man who was clever,
wno could hit and who was game to the cove.

The Serrs'tive Soul in Sport
The more or less sensitive soul in sporc, whose name
or whose institution is sclie.du.fid for passingxamment,
has no soft time of it.
Nether r.as the conmicntator.
You can praise an ath e e thirty-seven consceutive
days, and then one day of crLicrsm upsets all the p'eas
ant e:fccts accrued from the praise.
The alumni and undergraduates of universities and ,
collcges are especia ly susceptible.
We have had a letter from one graduate thanking
.us for kind men tion and in the same mailanother from
a graduate of the same institution denouncing our un
fair attitude toward his alma mater.
And so it goes. But it is all natural and all human
and there is no harm done.
The Coilege Letter
The coilege letter is something worth earning. But
we could never see just why it should be quite so [

rowing and track. It shou'd also be given to any man !
who can make his tennis or go f team, and if boxing i
is made an intercollegiate sport, to this entry likewise.
Tennis and golf are now two of the ma.or sports
of the world. Together they are played by something
like three million Americans.
The man who can make nis university team for an
intercollegiate tennis or golf match is entit.ed to the
letter award.
A movement is supposrd to be under way to increase
the co'legiate in a'l varieties of sport?to get as many
students as possible interested in one game or anotber.
Just what the idea may be in refusin'g recognition
to those who take up one of the few wor.d-wide com
petitions is a tri"e out of our reach.

seen one given yet.

Just an I sliccd into a trap?
"I'm sorry, s'.r; tough luch, o!d chap."

In celecting JuMan S. Myrick for president the
Lawn Tennis Association gets a fine sportsman, who
has contribuled more than a trifle to the upbui'ding
of the game. Tennis will continue under guidance
that is worthy of the sport.
This is the first winter in sevfc'al generations that
Cincinnati fans haven't wonderfd whether the big
crash would come on May 10 or June 7, where the
ilogan to name a new nianager would receive its
initial impulse.
