Tilden Triumphs Ov American Beats Kingscote; Mrs. MalloryAlso Victor philadelphian Wins by 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 5-7, ?6-3 in Fourth Round: Garland and Williams Advance in Doubles Contest at Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, England, June 26 (By The Associated Press).-?Will? iam T. Tiiden, of Philadelphia, won his match in the fourth round of the British lawn tennis singles championship here to-day, defeating Lieutenant Colonel Algernon A. R. F. Kingscote in five sets, 6?3, 5?7, 6?4, 5?7, g_3. This result puts Tilden among the last eight for the championship. Before play started np one in the press box considered the Englishman tad a chance of winning and some spectators among whom the betting instinct was strong, were giving odds of 5 to 1 that Kingscote would ~*t take a sinele set. The match between the American ??d the captain of last year's English Divis Cup team was hard fought from the start. The center court, on which it was played, was surrounded by a erowd packed as densely as the ac? commodations could stand when the ?lay opened with Kingscote serving. The American opened carelessly, dropping his service game, but cap faring his opponent's with deep drives. H? won his second service and led, two to one, and then three to one. Kings rote equalized matters with a steady raturn and clever placing, while Tilden was netting many off the ground on the backhand, as well as in shoulder high volleys. From the sixth game on, however, the American spurted, captur? ing three games in succession, and taking the first set 6?3. Briton Takes Second The second set opened with an un? expected turn in the Englishman's favor. He won the first three and reached vantage in the fourth. Tilden here made a big effort and sent over three of his super-services, thus win? ning his first game in this set. Steady? ing then and playing in brilliant forri, placing splendidly on volleys, he made the score three-all. Kingscote, too, was playing finely and oc*s??ionally making extraordinary recoveries, as well as showing anticipation of his op? ponent's intentions that was akin to second sight. In the third set Kingscote continued playing strongly, taking the lead four ?mes to two, but stopping there, Til den taking four games in succession and winning the set. The match was ?jvened in the fourth set, which Kings? cote captured after another hard bat? tle. In the final set both players wo* going well and the score reached three all, when Tilden rallied for the match. It is considered remarkable that Til den dropped seven service games throughout the match, and it is the more surprising because against his other opponents in the present tourna? ment he has almost never conceded a service game. Tilden next will meet the Australian player. Randolph Lycett. R. Norris Williams, of Boston, in his next match will play against T. Mavrogordato, of the British Davis Cup team, while Charles S. Garland, of Pittsburgh, will have as his opponent C. R. Blackbeard, of South Africa. Defies Physician's Orders In their match in the fourth round of the British styles, T. M. Mavrogor? dato, of the British Davis Cup team, defeated B. I. C. Norton, champion of South Africa, 6?1, 7?5, 8?6. Norton played in defiance of medical orders, nis physicians having advised him not to compete, owing to the effect they feared upon his heart. As a result of this match Mavrogordato will meet R. Norris Williams, 2d, of Boston. In another fourth round match Zenzo Shimizu, the Japanese crack, defeated A. G. Zerlendi, a diminutive Greek, reputed to be the best player in Egypt. The scores were 6_3, 6?4, 6?3. In the third round of the ladies' singles Mrs. Franklin I. Mallory (Molla Bjurstedt), beat Miss Dransfield, 5?7, 6?0, ?3?0. Mrs. Mallory showed im? proved form and played steadily. In the championship doubles com? petition Williams and ? Garland, the Americans, easily defeated Simond and Morris.

Tim? of gam? -i.2i. er English Davis Cup Player Three Prominent College Golfers ?Deplore Unsportsmanlike Action I Of Taking Net Title by Default -,? ? Finalist Insists on Playing Match When Opponent Is Under Great Handicap By Fred Hawthorne I am minded to "cal? a spade a spade," and to be specific instead of hypothetical in referring to one of this season's tournaments and the manner in which it was conducted, and perhaps this may be necessary at a later period, but for the present 1 will content mysejf with a saving vagueness, an opaqueness that none but those immediately concerned may see through. Lawn tennis has ever been noted for one characteristic that has always placed it in a separate niche of its own?on a pedestal, as it were?when compared with other sports, and it is a characteristic that we should all bo jealous of and do our utmost to pre? serve. The? apirit of fair play, of splendid, unwavering, sportsmanship in the finest sense of the word, is what I mean in this instance. Feeling this way about the game, it struck me with all the greater force that such things could happen in a tournament, held here in America, in this city, which has become the great? est lawn tennis center in the United States, if not in the world, as have happened recently. Hypothctically, take a tournament for a state championsliip, sanctioned by the United States National Tennis Association, a tournament with a* great and honorable record of com? petition behind it. Imagine that this tournament narrows down to the semi? final round, and that, just before the four survivors go out on the court, two of the players on the opposite sides of the draw come to a mutual, but private understanding that in the event of both winning their semi-final matches, they will play the final on the following day at a specified time. Defeat Upsets Plans I may add that one of these matches came through as expected, and ac? cording to "form," but that in the other one the favorite was defeated, thereby upsetting all the plans made between this player and the one who had been victorious. To make matters simpler, let us name the winner of the first match A, the loser of the second match C and player who defeated C, B. B had to play three hard sets to de? feat C, and it so happened that B was forced to work until late that night. Before leaving the clubhouse, A In? formed B that the final match for the title would be played the next day at 3 o'clock. B strongly objected to this, in view of the conditions and requested a one-day interval between, which would bring the final round match on Saturday, the usual day for such events. Then came a deadlock, A insisting that the match must bo played on Fri? day and B just as Insistent that It must be on Saturday. The tournament com? mittee was appealed to, and the argu? ment grew in extent and in aggressive? ness, until the entire club membership wai? divided into two factions. "Why shouldn't I take advantage of condi? tions?" remarked A to a friend. "B in tired from a hard match and will be tip late to-night. I am not responsible so why should I not get tho benefit of it?" B at length announced that, rathei than play on Friday, ho would let the match ko by default. Seizing this as ?A cue, the tournament committee con rVrred and voted, four to one, to de fn'ilt B. The lone dissenting member f the committee held out steadfastly for B, but, of course, the majority ruled ,and it -??as ?_,i unofficial verdict of the committee i of which, by the way, A was the chairman) that the championship and the custody of the silver cup should go to A by default. Willing to Take Default The club members then got together and attempted to persuade A to recede from the position taken, but this A absolutely refused to do, being per? fectly willing to take the honors by default. A few of the more level? headed among the members realized that such a condition of affairs would cast tho club into bad repute, and so the matter was "held over" for several days, with no official action on the de? fault being taken or made public. After the lapse of about a week, however, the board of governors of the club, in a legally worded document, made public announcement to the effect that, the final round match for the championship not having been played on the scheduled dato, and tho tourna? ment committee having voted, unof? ficially, to award the championship to A, although such default was not of? ficially posted, it became necessary for the board to relieve the committee from its duties and assume charge of the case itself. During this week of court inactivity, it seems, A had finally been persuaded to reconsider taking the match by de? fault, and therefore the board, in its wisdom, announced, officially, tnat "A, having refused to take the match, the championship and the trophy by de? fault, rather than t>y atcual competi? tion, the board ruled that A and B would meet for the title on 'such and 3uch a date'." So the matter now rests, and unless some unforseen obstacle crops up in the interim, the match will be played and the championship settled on the date specified. But is this quite fair to B, who, by the wording of the board of governors' ruling, is placed in an un? enviable light, to say the least, while A is upheld as the personification of magnanimity and true sportsmanship? I should hate to believe so. Such tactics, I maintain, have no place in amateur sport, least of all in lawn tennis, and it is high time that tho game was purged of such condi? tions. Be it understood, and plainly, that I hold no brief for B personally, nor do I think that B's position was the right one, in every phase of this case, but the mere fact that A could cast a vote to take the title by default, under any conditions, strikes me as utterly foreign to the spirit of fair play and true amateurism.

Pick Resolute To Defend Cup In Yacht Races New York Y? C. Committee Selects Herreshoff Sloop to Meet Lipton Challenger NEWPORT, R. I., June 26.?The selection of the sloop Resolute to de? fend the America's Cup against the j Shamrock IV, was announced to-day by C. Oliver Iselin, a member of the ! committee on cup defense of the New York Yacht Club. It was also an? nounced that the first race would be sailed off Sandy Hook 'on July 15. The decision was reached after the committee had witnessed the last trial race between Resolute and Vanitie in their elimination series here to-day, which was called off about 20 minutes after the yachts had passed the outer mark with Vanitie a half mile in the lead. The Resolute will be towed to Bris? tol at once for a complete overhauling, I including the fitting of three new set3 ! of sails and small spars. The cup defender was built in 1914 by a syndicate composed of J. P. Morgan, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Arthur Curtis James, George F. Baker, Henry Walters and several other nrorni"int members of the New York Yacht Club. The est of the trial races tins year reached about $25,000, financed by a syndicate which was formed to race the two yachts. SANDY HOOK, N. J., June 26.?After drifting along their 29-mile course for two hours and a half in a baking sun, Shamrock IV, which will seek to cap? ture the America's Cup here next month, and the 23-meter Shamrock, her trial horse, cave up their race to-day for lack of wind. Both craft failed to cross the line within the two-minute limit after fir? ing of the starting pun and at 4:30, af? ter completing their second leg, they lay motionless when the wind died away entirely. Both accepted a tow back to their moorings. Today's race, which was late in starting, was called off twenty minutes after the yachts had passed tho outer mark. The Vanitie was then leading by half a mile. ? .i ? Fox Is Winner in Two Straight Sets on Courts Joseph W.

Yale Freshman Defeats Ward, of Williams, 4 and 3, on the Nassau Links By Ray McCarthy Jesse Sweetser, only a freshman at I Yale, wound up a week of brilliant golf ? play by defeating James Ward, of Will? iams, in the final round over 36 holes ! of the intercollegiate championship ! tournament at the Nassau Country i Ciub yesterday. The official score of | the match was 4 and 3. Thus although j A. L. Walker, the Columbia captain and title holder last, year was elimi? nated, the championship still remains in New York, as Sweetser is one of the many inhabitants of this great island. Yesterday's victory carried no thrills with it such as Sweetser's win over Dean. The New Haven collegian was expected to come through and did ar? rive in the expected manner. He took the lead at the very first hole in the morning and held onto it all the way to the end. There was never any doubt that the weaver of the Blue would come off vic? torious, although he kept the scribes worried for a while in the afternoon, by prolonging the issue longer than they had figured, thus causing tbem almost to miss a train for the early edition. Beautifully Played Game While his game was not quite the equal of that shown against J. Simpson Dean, the Princeton captain, in Fri? day's semi-final, it was plenty good | enough to give him a clean-cut and meritorious victory. The Ardsley Club youth got off the course now und then, i he missed some easy putts, and occas? ionally his irons swerved from the main line. But on the whole, his game I was beautifully played and as steady j as the V,'est Point Cadets on the march. Moreover, Sweetser seemed to know he was on his game and eased his way along without any apparent undue ex? ertion. Ward played some fine golf?won? derful golf in spots?but his work was too erratic to enable him to overcome the steadiness of his opponent. He played much better in the afternoon than in the morning?Sweetser did, too, for that matter, with the result the ; matinee struggle was more interesting ! and much closer. Compared to his performances of the ' last few days, Sweetser's morning round was only mediocre, but it proved good enough to give him a margin of four up for the afternoon's start. Which is considerable of a handicap for any golfer to face goin-j into the stretch. Ward didn't increase his chances, any by starting the afternoon round with a drive to the rough. When he finally got down, in 6, he was five to the rear, as Sweetser scored a 4 on the first hole. Ward got into more trouble on the second hole, pulling his drive to the rough and taking another six, which set him back further. And when he repeated the same kind of performance on the third and became seven down, his case appeared hopeless. Ward Plugs Along But he kept plugging along and against a player of less ability than Sweetser he might have come through for from the tenth hole on. The Williams youth was going along like one inspired. Ward won the fourth hole when Sweetser's putt rimmed the cup, but promptly handed it back on the fifth by taking three shots to get on to his opponent's two. However, he managed to take the next hole with a birdie 4 when Sweetser missed his putt. This left him 6 down again. Both played perfect golf on the seventh and eighth to get halves in par figures. And then, when every one was conceding the match to the Yale man, Ward began to play in startling manner. At the ninth they each had a putt for a 3. Sweetser's rimmed the cup and left Ward stymied. The lad from the Berkshire hills, however, was equal to the task confronting him and won the hole by sinking a beautiful curve putt, probably the best of the day. The Yale youth got a break on the tenth when his second shot, a half topped brassie, skidded between two traps and hung fast to the mainland. This enabled Sweetser to get on in three and to halve the hole with a five. Ward dropped back to six down when he missed a three-foot putt on the eleventh. Sweetser then stood six up and seven ant Five-SU Syracuse Crew Enters Olympic Tryouts in July SYRAC^E, N. Y, June 26.? Elated over the brilliant vic? tory won on Cayuga Lake by the Syracuse University 'varsity crew, aiumni of all universities who are residents of this city have pro? vided a fond to ?end the victorious eight to the Olympic trials next month. Within forty-eight hours after the Orange triumph more than enough to pay the training expenses of the oarsmen was raised and arrangements made to send the squad to Duluth, Minn., for the necessary training. James A. Ten Eyck, mentor of the triumphant crew, is under con? tract to coach the Duluth Boat Club crew this summer, and so, in order that his college boys may be directly under his tutelage, he is taking them to Duluth with him. They will come east a few days be? fore the final tryont for the Olym? pics at Worcester. The victory on Cayuga Lake is a brilliant climax for the first year of Ten Eyck's renewed relations at Syracuse. There was no crew in 1918, and in 1917 training was called off in the midst of the season when the Poughkeepsie races were abandoned. Last year "Cy" Thurs ton was at the helm. to play, and the match should have ended on the twelfth but for the fact that Sweetser booted his putt. He got off a long, perfect drive, while Ward hooked to the rough. Sweetser was on in two, his opponent being short. Sweetser ran a putt up t? within three feet of the cup and then missed out on his fourth when the ball swung around the lip, but stayed on earth. Ward also got a five, leaving the New Haven student dormie six. Issue. Is Dragged Out We were just on the verge of bolting for the Oyster Bay limited when Sweetser missed this putt. However, a glance at the watch convinced us we still had time to see another hole, where undoubtedly the match would end. But on the next Sweetser dropped his tee shot into a trap while Ward's landed on the green. The Yale man made a splendid recovery, but missed his putt and Ward still remained in the running. Another quick glance at the ticker, and we decided to edge further away from the station. But here again we were deceived. Ward crashed a drive far out to within 100 yards of the green and laid his sec? ond dead to the hole, while Sweetser took a four. Then we began to wonder if Sweetser '. were going to win after all. But on the fourteenth the Eli player, after ? flubbing his first putt, sank one of 10 j feet and halved the hole for victory. I Then we made our sprint and won out i by two minutes. !

Kumagae Outplays Voshell ! For Met Tennis Championship Jap Star Dethrones Play? ing - Through Title Holder in Straight Sets Playing with impressive speed and uncanny accuracy, Ichiya Kumagae, of Japan, added still another lawn tennis championship title to his great string yesterday afternoon by defeating S, Howard Voshell, former national in? door and the playing-through metro? politan champion, in the final round of the annual metropolitan champion? ship singles tournament, on the clay courts of the New York Tennis Club, at Broadway and 238th Street. Kumagae won in straight sets, by a score of 6?0, 6_1, 6?3, and when he had won the final point, as Voshell sent his return of service into the net, the little Japanese gained his second leg on the massive Metropolitan Cup. Voshell had already won the tourna? ment twice and a victory yesterday would have given him permanent pos? session of the cup, but it was not to be, for Kumagae was mighty and irre? sistible. Not half a dozen times during the match did Voshell get a chance to bring his deadly overhead game into play, for Kumagae kept the ball low, ! and his shots came over so fast, and ' the ball was striking so close to the side lines of the court corners, that Voshell did not care to trust his fort? unes by trying to win the net position. From the back of the court, of course, the defending champion had no chance against the brand of lawn tennis that Kumagae was flashing. Kumagae Eases Up It seemed as though Kumagae might have won by an even more decisive score had he been so inclined, for the last set, leadin; at 5?1, the great little Oriental let down appreciably In his hitting arid did net go out after tho bait with the rame lightning speed that he had shown before. Voshell seized the opportunity to batter out the winning points by fine volleying at the net, taking the seventh and eighth games with jfte loss of only two points. But his ti-umph was fleeting, for Kumagae cam. back with his old rush and won tho last game with ease, Voshell meeting the Jap's eervice for the last point. The final matches In the doubles and mixed doubles will be played this af? ternoon. Voshell began the service in the first set, but Kumagae broke through with .?lashinp: forehand "loop" drives1 that wont through the smallest open ing3 in his opponent's court. The Japanese won the next game on his own service, and then Voshell made his greatest stand of the match in the third, the points going to "deuce" seven times before Kumagae broke through for the second time and made the score 3?0. The last three games went to the Japanese quickly. Voshell Hurts Foot Voshell appeared to have hurt his foot about this stage, for he limped several times during the rest of the match, but even so, the result could not have been different, for Kumagae not only held the advantage in speed, but in accuracy and staying power.

Mrs. Edward Raymond, a former Met? ropolitan champion, won her first leg on the handsome silver Ardsley Cup yesterday afternoon, by defeating Miss Marie Wagner, of New Yor_., at 6?4, 6?3, in the final round of the women's annual invitation singles lawn tennis tournament on the turf courts of the Ardsley Club, at Ardsley-on-Hudsoc. As though this were not sufficient for one day, Mrs. Raymond, paired with Mrs. Benjamin F. Briggs, of the Pel ham Country Club, won. the doubles title by vanquishing Miss Clare Cassel and Miss Phyllis Walsh, the latter of Philadelphia, by a score of 7?5, 6?2, in the final round. The tournament will be finished this afternoon with a semi-final and final round match in the mixed double?. Mrs. Samuel E. Waring and Fred Let son will meet Miss Wagner and J. D. Ewing in the semi-final and the win? ners will face Mrs. Lewis Gouverneur Morris, of the Ardsley Club, and Alex Her, of New York, in the final round, for the championship. Mrs, Raymond Clever Player There is only one word that fitly de? scribes the predominating charaet.'ris tic in the match between Mrs. Ray? mond and Miss Wagner yesterday, and that word is "class." It was that qual ity that enabled the winner to come through 11 victory after a slow start. Although ,i majority of her shots did not carry the sting that showed in Miss Wagner's, Mrs. Raymond over? came this handicap by some of the most brilliant placing and clever court generalship that 1 have witnessed in women's tennis this season. Miss Wagner, after starting off most auspiciously in the first set and taking a lead of 3?1 on games, suddonly abandoned her aggressive tactics us Mrs. Raymond began to gain full con? trol of i? r strokes, and fell rapidly behind, the new champion winning live out of the six games, for the set at 6?4. During the first four games of this set Miss Wagner looked like a poten? tial winner all over. Her shots were cleanly and crisply made* and many times she caught her rival out of posi? tion with beautifully placed fore and backhand drives at sharp angles acros. the court and cloSe to the aide linos. Mrs. Raymond, starting too late from ! the base line to retrieve these shots, seemed very slow. It. looked Ilk? a quick finish. Nothing w8s going rijrht for tho former metropolitan champion at this stage. She was not hitting the ?ball cleanly--either finding tho net or over? driving the base lino by several fmi, in strong contrast to Miss Wagner*? accurately, well hit shots. Mrs. Raymond Rallies But here Mrs. Raymond braced splen? didly when danger threatened, ami started to "stroke" the ball and t?> score placement aces on dazzling shot, that ripped big holes in Mis-* Wagner's defense and paved the way for the fin? ishing shots. Almost all the play wh i from back-court throughout the nintr1*. ! Miss Wagner apparently was timid about taking chances of being pasted i should she go for the net position, for her opponent was hitting the lines won? derfully well. The last point in this set was score,1 by Mrs. Raymond with a brilliant s!.??r *, 'cross-court drive across mid-court aH Miss Wagner came running in from her base line. The points in this .set follow: r't - ?: . Mrs. Raymond .324 IG 53 444 16 a .\<i?i Wacher...?

There was very little volleying, Mrs. Ray? mond not findinp it necessary to follow in to the net except rarely, while Mies Wagner very seldom got a chance t<? come in close. At this point Mrs. Raymond experi? enced an unaccountable lapse of form, flubbing the simplest of shots, nothing but a string of errors coininp from hit* racquet. Miss Wagner seemed to take heart at this, her stroke* regain? ?l their snap, and she run off the next; three games easily and well. But Mis. Raymond's fall from grac . was only a temporary one and lha took th. last two games with ease, finishing the match with a drive through deep court that sent the ba within six inches of the side lines fo;* a clean pass.

Miss Cassel's work wat not up to her standard, most o:' her shots being short, and it was then that Mrs. iiriggs and Mrs. Raymond, attacking at the net together, battered out their winning points. ?
