rth semi-final superior control i
?ti. better judgment in choice of ??
strokes were the winning factors. The
??railtvn net pHy of the Anderson
boys favo the Cahfornians plenty of
?cub'.e on occasions, but as a rule the \
Brooklyn youths, after forcing their ;
openings and gaining the advantageous
Dosition. threw away their chances
Start by volleying into tho net or
driving beyond +he base line.
It was " spirited tennis in both !
?lAtches with the Californians in ]
??ommand cf the s-tuation at all times.
The abundance of short range volley?
ing contributed the spectacular ele?
Anderson Take? Lead
There was only one period in his
match with Kinsey when Fred Ander?
son threatened at all seriously. That
rras late in the third set when by
splendid blocking at. t"he net and some
daring* cross-court shots he went into a
lead cf S to 3. Kinsey, winning his
p?-n sen-ice, made it 5 to 4, but in
the next grame Anderson was three
times within a point of the set.
The California!-, however, steadied
remarkably in the pinch, made some
brilliant recoveries of apparently un?
takable shots and pulled the game out j
of the fire.
They kept winning on service up to !
the sixteenth game, when Anderson ?
ccntributed to his defeat with two !
sauu-Bta into the net on strokes he :
should have "killed." Kinsey's change !
of paee had Anderson timing his shots j
poorly. !
Prank Anderson was never d^se to
taking his t? rd set with Willis E. '
Davis, although he forced the score to
5?7. The Californian always held the
vantage game. In the first two sets ;
Davis did not attempt to force the net
a? persistently as his opponent, but he
gauged ni1* distance well and either
passed Anderson as he rttshed to the
forward court or sent the ball to his
feet where the Brooklyn youth found
it difficult, to make an accurate return.
Improvement Comes Late
Frank practically beat himself on ,
volleys into the net, and it was not '
until late in the match that his con?
trol improved.
There was no questionine: the supe?
riority of Davis's skill. He had the
in hand from the start, but it
was not until the third set, when :
Anderson pressed him hard, that he
brought ais best speed into play. His
g servies and crisp volleying in
aal division of the match checked
whatever hopes Anderson may have
of prolonging the match.
The doubles furnished an upset in
the defeat of S. Howard Voshell and
Frank T. Anderson at the hands of
Gerald Eroerscn and Harold Taylor,
gfter three bard sets. The score was
5?7. 6?2, 12?10.
?aersen was the most conspicuous
?l_y? cf the four. He had most of tn.
"?pp?rt*-cities on bis side, and he
handled nearly all of them well, flash
is? better tennis than he was thought
capable of Kis stroking wa_ decisive
tfid few shots that came bis wny i?t
the net escaped being deflected for
timed points.
Frank Continues Erratic
On the other side of the net Frank
Anderson was just as erratic as in
?Ingles. He took too many chances
IB. contributed many errors.
At the expense of .the Australian
Davis Cup team- of J. 0. Anderson and
C-Wtnce V. Todd, the Pacific Coast
champions. Robert and Howard Kinsey,
iwched the final round in doubles. The
ans, ?bowing superior team play
and far better control, led in these
. " 5, G?1, 7?5. It was
a spectacular match, made so by the
-bundar.ee of net play on both sides,
-nd by the length of the rallies.
The Australians played a fast, hard
Wtting game, Anderson, in particular,
fid seme superb volleying. But they left
too many openings for their opponents.
?*'ho took full advantage of them. When

Davis Trophy
Final Matches
This Afternoon
Japanese Players Are Likely
to Give Tilden and John?
ston Tussle at Forest Hills
By Fred Hawthorne
This afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, on
the championship courts of the West
Side Tennis Club at Forest Hills, Wil?
liam T. Tilden 2d, world's champion,
will f:tce lehiya Kumnrj-ae, of Japan,
and at 4:00 p. m. William M. John?
ston, of California will meet Zonzo
Shimidzu, of Japan, in the last two
matches of tho international series for
the Davis Cup.
The United States won the cup on
Saturday, when Noms Williams and j
Watson M. Washburn defeated Kuma- !
gae and Shimidzu in the doubles, mak- j
ing the third successive victory for
America in the three matches played. !
Because of this, the matches this af- j
ternoon can have no actual bearing on !
the final result, yet either match is
quite likely to provide more spirited !
tennis than any of the other three that I
have proceeded them.
No one who saw the stout hearted i
little Shimidzu press the tall Tilden j
so desperately hard on Friday, when j
? ur great champion trembled on the ?
very brink of defeat in the third set, j
will willingly miss the chance of j
seeing the little man from the Orient !
in action to-day against the hard-hit?
ting, determined, "Mighty Atom" of the
courts from California. And Kumagae,
he who hag held a high place in the
ranking list ever ?ince his first ap
earance in this country, is quite l?a?
le to give Tilden another such strug?
gle as the champion faced when Shi?
midzu was his opponent, although I
do not consider this probable.
Johnston Is To Be Feared
Johnston's flawless court tactics, the
power and speed of his ground strokes,
8nd the deadly execution wrought bv !
his overhand volleying, are far more
likely to give the softer-stroking
Shimidzu trouble, I think, than was '
the case with Tilden's brilliant but,
erratic play on Friday.
Kumagae is not the same great, little
player this year that he was last sea?
son, when only Tilden. Johnston and
Williams were ranked above him. His
mind does not seem to be as keenly
centered on the game as was the case
before, and perhaps there is good rea?
son for this, since the smiling, cheer?
ful, likable little Kumagae is going
back to Japan within the next few
weeks, and soon after he sets foot on
his native shore he is going to take
unto himself a little Japanese bride.
However, to-day will mark Iehiya's
last tournament appearance on Ameri?
can courts, perhaps for all time, and
so he may have the incentive to give
of his best to-day, even though the
chances seem to be all against him of
defeating our great Tilden.
The final doubles match in the Met?
ropolitan championship tournament, on
the turf courts of the Crescent
Athletic Club, Bay Ridge, is sched?
uled for to-morrow afternoon, and
here, also, we should witness tennis of
a high quality and well worth a
journey to see. The Crescent Athletic
Club tournament committee, headed by
Charles J. Baleig.i, chairman, aided by
Albert J. Gibney, Mr. Ditmars,
Charles Chambers, the referee, and
others, deserves a full measure of
praise and appreciation for the man
nsr in which this, the first grass court
Metropolitan championship ever held
in this city, has been conducted.
Women's Singles Wednesday
The success of this event has placed
the Crescent Athletic Club back on the |
high pedestal it once occupied as an ?
important tenni3 rendezvous.
The turf courts of the Orange Lawn |
Tennis Club, at Mountain Station, N.
J., will be given over to a women's in?
vitation tournament in singles and
doubles beginning next Wednesday,
with most'of the greatest women play?
ers in the United States among the
contenders. Mrs, Molla Bjurstedt Mai
lory, national title holder; Miss Mary
K Browne, of California; Miss Leslie!
Bancroft, of Boston; Miss Helen Gil
le.audeau, of New York, * nd Miss
Martha Bayard, of Short Hills, N. J.,
have already entered.
Down at the West Side Tennis Club,
starting to-morrow. George Agutter,
the professional, will help in conduct?
ing a special junior tournament for
boys. There are half a dozen little
fellows, junior members of the Forest
Hills club, who are coming along at a
remarkable rate under Agutter's teach?
ing. Little twelve-year-old Ogden
Phipps is the most promising of these
; and Stuart Gayneas is another of whom
i great things are predicted for the
i future.
i Injury to Right Knee
May'Affect Tilden's Play
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 4.?Success
! of William Tilden 2d. world's tennis
title holder, in the United States na?
tional singles championship scheduled
1 to begin at the Germantown Cricket
' Club next Friday may depend largely
! upon whether a ligament in his right
i knee, displaced in the latter pert of the
j doubles championships at the Long
? wood Cricket Club, can stand the
? strain of a week's hard play,
i Tilden's friends here say he is spend
| ing the time between the Davis Cup
j matches and the hour he starts play
on Friday against Irving Wright, the
? veteran, getting a complete rest. 'But
; it is pointed out that with such a
! strong entry list as there is in the
? singles tourney, no player would be
, likely to come through if physically
; unfit.

THE millennium for New York fandom seema in prospect. More and I
more with each passing day the chances of the Yankees and Giants
to confine the next world's series exclusively to the Polo Grounds ;
In the opinion of those who have closely followed the pennant strug- |
gles in the two major leagues this great honor for the Yankees is one
of routine. The club is well out in front, with Cleveland, the only pos?
sible contender, badly blown and badly off in the matter of pitchers. For
the rest of the way the schedule will greatly favor the chances of the
New York Americans. Huggins's club has but nine road engagements
remaining. After a tour that will extend practically throughout the
week the club will return to close out the season at the Polo Grounds. The
last two games of the season will be played out of town, but by that time
the pennant issue should have been settled.
The Giants are not so well favored in the matter of schedule,
McGraw's club has to play the great majority of its remaining contests
on foreign fields. So far the club has shown to better advantage at home.
This, largely, is because of the wonderful brace taken during the last
_tand at the Polo Grounds which whittled down a lead of seven and a
half games for the Pirates and put the locals only a game behind.
A world's series confined exclusively to the Polo Grounds should be
a wonderful boost for the game. Brush Stadium can accommodate more
fans than any other baseball plant except Braves Field. Visitors from
outlying districts who never object to a trip to New York will be spared
?he physical and financial inconvenience of long railway journeys.
Only once in baseball history has the annual classic of baseball been
confined to one city. That was back in 1006, when the White Sox hitless
wonders astonished t'.ie world by taking the measure of the supposedly
invincible Cubs. The occasion proved a great tonic to the national game,
though in those days the world's series had not grown to such favor
and popularity it now enjoys.
Local Magnates Confronted With Housing Problem
IN case the Yankees and Giants meet in the blue ribbon of the baseball
season the owners are very likely to be put to it severely to find
accommodations for all of their guests. Those New Yorkers interested
in baseball alone would fill the Polo Grounds several times over, and the
series annually attracts a great retinue from all the big cities represented
in the major leagues.
The problem is one which will require great attention and detail of
thought, for it will never do, in view of the present popularity of the game,
to allow any scandal of any kind?particularly any ticket speculating
scandal?to crop out. The unpleasantness of the 1919 series is fresh in
the public mind.
It will be necessary, of course, to make certain reservations for
(influential friends of the game who live out of town; for owners, players.
umpires and others of the major and minor leagues. But the number of
reserved seats should be held to a minimum, for only in this way can
speculating be curbed. If the world's series sales could be conducted alone
the system of the Sunday sales of the Yankees and Giants there would
be the minimum of dissatisfaction on the part of patrons; at the same
time the regular would have his chance to find proper accommodation.
Japanese Tennis Stars Gain American Admiration
ALTHOUGH there are two singles matches to be played this afternoon
on the courts of the West Side Tennis Club at Forest Hills, with
William T. Tilden meeting Ichiya Kumagae and William M. Johnstor
facing Zenzo Shimidzu in the last of the Davis Cup challenge ?ounc
matches, the historic cup is already safe for America, thanks to the greal
playing of Tilden, Johnston, Norris Williams and Watson Waahburn or
Friday and Saturday of last week. To-day'_ matches must come in the
nature of an anti-climax, since even a clean sweep this afternoon by th?
Japanese challenging team could not alter the final result.
America retained the cup, as it was expected she would do, with twe
such mighty players as Johnston and Tilden in the singles and William!
and Washburn in the doubles. Every player and follower of tennis ii
this country must rejoice in this preeminence at the game which we now
enjoy, but there are other things worthy of high consideration in con
section with the international matches as they were fought out a1
forest Hills.
The spirit of sportsmanship, as exemplified all through the two after
noons of play on the West Side courts, is in itself a glowing tribute to th<
great game. No other sport, it seems, is quite so thoroughly imbued wit!
this love of fair play; this desire to give your opponent.every chance t<
prove himself the better man.
As for Kumagae and Shimidzu, though they failed in the quest o:
the "Golden Fleece" of the tennis world, after Shimidzu had traversed th<
seven seas on his way from far Bombay, they will leave America withii
the next few- weeks, carrying something more precious than the massivi
silver bowl fo * which they struggled so splendidly. Ichiya Kumagae an<
Zenzo Shimid: ', when they set foot again upon their native soil, ma;
report to their emperor that they bear the priceless gift of the friendshi]
and good will oi a great country, for that indeed they have won durin*
their stay here.
Come again, Kumagae; come again, Shimidzu! A warm welconv
always for you and all such as ycu, who know how to fight the goo<
fight, and, losing it, to greet defeat with a smile and a word of praisi
for those who conquered you. Such a spirit is greater than any game.
Record Football Season Seems in Prospect
THE call for football candidates has been sounded. That call stirs th
blood of every sport-loving American. For football is a game o
intense action, the kind that keeps the spectators on edge during th
entire conflict. This year more people will witness the various footbai
games than ever before. The game is growing in popularity not onl;
' with collegians but with non-collegians. People who never saw a gan
] of football until last year are now confirmed gridiron fans.
The scheduling of first-class elevens for the Polo Grounds has ha
i much to do with making football popular in New York. The sport toe
! so well at the Polo Grounds last season that the management has book?
? no less than seven games for this fall. And each and every one of tho?
; contests promises to be a thriller. Between the games at the Polo Ground
j those at Columbia, at New York University and at Fordham, footba
i fans in this city will be provided- with plenty of good-gridiron entertaii
! ment this year.
That is good news to the layman, to th? fellow who finds it impossib
'' to go to New Haven to see Yale play some of the bigger teams or 1
Princeton to see the Tigers in action. New York City, with its thousam
! cf college alumni and with its thousands of non-college men who neverth
; less are football fans, is entitled to stellar attractions and henceforl
it will be accommodated.
Playing in this city is beneficial to the college and an accommodation
to the alumni of that college. Columbia is rapidly working back to the
same high plane it held in the football world before it dropped the game.
That is a good sign also. If the Morningside institution ever develops
to the point where it will rank with the Big Three and the other major
elevens it will mean a tremendous boost for the game in this city.
Sports Lover Suggests Easy Relief for Jim Mutrie
THE following letter is self explanatory:
"Springfield, Mass., Sept. 3, 1921.
"Sporting Editor, New York Tribune.
"Dear Sir: I read with considerable interest this morning
an article regarding 'Smiling Jeems Murtrie/ It seems to me a
great pity th.2'; a man who has done so much for baseball should
be in such a petition.
"Inclosed please find check for $1. I believe there are 20,000
men in this broad land who would do likewise if they would but
give it a thought. Why not start something?
"Very truly yours, L. F. EATON."
Mr. Eaton's generous and charitable i^ea strikes a sympathetic
chord with The Tribune sporting editor, who will be most glad to forward
to Jim Mutrie contributions of any denomination.
It, will be a bad day indeed for the national pastime when the old
stars are forgotten.

oughbred by the manner in which he
won. He ret the pace all the way and
ran well within himself, having plenty
? in reserve at the end. Though Grey
Lag was chargi'i,; down on the victor at
the end, there is little doubt Touch Me
Not could ha<-e improved th? time he
showed for the route, and this time
was second only to the record estab?
lished by the great and only Man o'
War one year previously.
The fact that Touch Me Not can
carry weight over a distance of ground
assures for the remainder of the Bel?
mont meeting some interesting com
petions yet to be decided. There are
two distance races yet to be decided,
and in both of which Grey Lag is
likely to have an opportunity to prove
whether or not his defeat of Saturday
was a fluke.
Two-Mile Gold Cup Race
There is the Jockey Club Cup and
the Autumn Gold Cup, each at two
miles, in which the older divisions of
the horses will be admitted on a
weigh t-for-age proposition. Such
horses as Exterminator, Bellsolar,
Smoke Screen, Mad Hatter, Yellow
Hand and the like will assure fields
of the kind that contested over long
routes in the old days.
In the opinion of most horsemen,
prior to the running of the last Law?
rence Realization, Grey Lag was en?
titled to the three-year-old champion?
ship of the year. In the estimation of
many competent judges he was very lit?
tle short in class to the Man o' War
of 1921. Certainly his race of Satur?
day did not stamp him as such. But
it is possible Sande was too confident
with his mount. He evidently expected
Touch Me Not to come back from the
terrific pace he set, and when he
grasped the truth it was too late to
save the day.
Certainly Grey Lag was running
over the winner at the end and he
seemed a horse that had plenty in re
S'jrv? and that had not given of his
very best all the way. It must be re?
membered, too, that Grey Lag seemed
somewhat sore in the paddock and in
going to the post. During the running
of his race at Devonshire, Windsor, in
which he took the measure of Black
Servant in a $'20,000 stake, the great
colt bruised a heel and had to be laid
up temporarily. It is possible he did
not have the proper training to do
himself justice in such a race as
Touch Me Not asked ?f him in the
Lawrence Realization.
A Fine Futurity Field
The Jockey Club Cup and the Fu?
turity, to be decided next Saturday
afternoon, will feature this week's
racing. The Futurity is one of the
most open races of its glowing history.
Neither Morvich, admittedly the best
two-year-old colt of the vear, nor Miss
Joy. the best filly, is eligible.
Their absence is bound to assure a
high c'ass and well balanced field of
youngsters that have raced more or
less in and out all season, but which
have shown winning performances of
occasion. My Play, the full brother of
Man o' War; John E. Madden's Dead?
lock, G. A. Cochran's June Grass, the
Greentree Stable's Sedge and John San
ford's Snob II are only a few that have
been pointed particularly for this rich
Labor Day always has been one of
the red letter days in racing on the
metropolitan circuit, and preparations
have been made for this afternoon
Bgainst such a record attendance as
turned out at Belmont Park on Memo?
rial Day. Judged purely from the
standpoint of stake cla*s the card is
nothing to brag about, but the nomina?
tions are more plentiful than usual,
and unless there is a great deal of
scratching interesting fields should go
to the post.
The feature of the program will be
the Fall Highweight Handicap for all
ages at three-quarters of a mile, for
which no less than a dozen have been
named overnight. The secondary feat?
ure is the Broad Hollow Handicap
I Steeplechase.

OYSTER BAY, L. I., Sept. ..?Not-,
withstanding; the fact that the yachts?
men who are gathered here for the fall
race week of the Seawanhaka Corin?
thian Yacht Club were well battered by
wind and wave in the baby hurricane
that swept over Long Island Sound yes?
terday, seven of the craft started in
the annual overnight race to Stratfori
Shoal Lipht and return.
After sailing all night in various
breezes the Victory yacht Mongolia
crossed the finish line at 9:45:15 a. m.
to-day. Although the first home, the
boat waa not the winner. On corrected
time, first prize went to the Cickle, one
of the little Fish class, which is the
property of Outerbndge and Harvey.
The yacht's corrected time for the
course was 8:00:30.
When the fleet started last night the
wind was light and from the south.
There was practically no airs, and had
it not beer, for the tide the boats would
have made very little headway. As
the wind came it was a reach down the
Sound to Stratford Shoal Light, the
turnine point of the contest. The
Mongolia, the property of H. M. Curtis,
soon slipped away from the balance of
the fleet.'She kept to the middle of the
Sound, where she got the full advan?
tage of the tide.

Wilson Meets
Do wnev To-day
In Title Bout
Gate Receipt? for MicWle
weijzht Fight Expected
to Exceed S20?.000
By Jack Lawrence
At 10 o'clock laut r.ifrht when th?
ticket sale f jt the Wilson-Downey fight*
in Jersey City to-day, was closed Te*
Ricard announced that the gate woul<i
exceed 8200,000. While tb? g*te is not
f-xpected to be anything like that of tH#
Dempsey-Carpentier bout, on Jiily 2,
the present, indications are that the re?
ceipt? 8t the turnstiles will run w.Il
over $200.000.
Johnny Wilson left hi? training e?.mp
at Manhasset, L. I., at 5 o'clock yester?
day afternoon and moved to a small
hotel in Jersey City, where he will ?-*
main until it is time to enter the great
pine arena this afternoon. Bryan Dow?
ney '.vil; not move into the State of New
Jer^er until this morning, when he will
<ro directly from Grupp's gymnasium, in
Harlem, to the scene of the fight.
Both contestants for the middlo
**'eight title weighed in last night under
1G0 pounds, which is the weicht they
are required to make at 10 o'clock this
morning in Jersey City.
Wilson did not finish his trnininj
stunts until 4 o'clock yesterday after?
noon, when he went through two three
round encounters with sparring- part?
ners while several hundred society peo?
ple and resident? of Manhasset looked
on. In the morning he had a five-mila
run on the road and before 1 o'clock
engaged in shidow boxing and ? hard
workout with a giant sand !?ag that was
used by Geonres Carpentier in his prep?
aration for his fight with Jack Demp
! sey.
Bryan Downey covered three miles on
; the roads of the npper Bronx yesterday
: morning, and when he, returned to
I Grupp's gymnasium pnt in eigrite?tn
; minutes of vicious shadow boxing. After
? that he boxed nine rounds of three min?
utes each with his sparring Partners,
and announced that he w?.s r?*dy to
annex the middleweight title, which the
State of Ohio has already announced
is his.
Downey said that his preparation for
this fight was carried on exactly as his
preparation for the famous Cleveland
battle hari been. He weighs the ,?amo
as he did on that occasion, and says his
right is stronger than ever.
The main bout this afternoon will be
1 ?-eferee<i by Harry Ertle. who was the
I third man in the ring when Dempsey
(fought C'-trpen+ier. This fact preclud???
any possibility of a repetition of the
Cleveland Paseo. Ertle's work in the
classic of July 2 indicated plainly he
will tolerate no violations of the rules.
