ONE of the prominent cliaractcrlMtiesi of Hill Tilden's
tennis jilay Is not in tin- nsfct roltiinn. Tills i Ills
Inability or fnllurc or whatever It Is to win over Ills
opponent in straight net. If it in a habit, It Is n dan
gerous one; If purely u fuult, he should muWo every effort
to correct It. Hut nppnreiitly lie docs not enre to do tills.
It Is certain that when lie drops a ct. and It usually is
the second or third, the cau-e primarily is not phlrnl.
Tilden has as much .stamina as any athlete In America,
consequently his physical condition cannot be blamed.
lie Isn't resting because he doesn't need the rest.
Iyooklnc back over Tilden's wonderful record for the
last two years, it Is hard to tind where he won any match
of Importance without losing n set, and In most of them
the contest went the limit. Therefore It Is not surprising
that Hrookes took a set jesterday in Australia. If there
In any cause for surprise In that 10-S, tl-4, 1-0, 0-4 vic
tory It is that Hrookes didn't take two sets. The last time
TiTdcn and IUooke.s met was in the fifth round of the
national tournament at Forest Hills in lM'J. That day
It took Tilden five sets to win.

each 5.7, to A. R V. Klnpscote. and while lie didu't lose
one to the Jap, Shiinidxu. he allowed the Oriental to carry
the final set to 13-11.
In the challenge round for the world s chanipiouslilp
he lost n set to lutteroii. jet Johnston, who ranks below
Tilden, jesterday plajed all around 1'ntter-nn at Auck
land allowing him but five games in the three sets.
i-erhaps uu explanation of Tilden's playing against
men who are beaten by hi inferiors on the court in
utraight sets is this : Tilden it temperamental and he has
confidence. In the first place, he doesn't care to win in
successive sets. This makes him mentally lax, which.
combined with his winning confidence, often causes his
game to drop to mediocrity. Another contributing factor
Ik Tilden's habit of practicing difficult shot. He often
does this in a hard match after he lias won a set or two.
Luckily for him. his Miner-speed and uncaiinj cleverness

West Virginia ha been in need of a new coach for

losing to Yale, Princeton, Pittsburgh and Washington
and Jefferson and tying Lehigh. The alumni became dis
couraged, decided to make a change, and after looking over
a long list of applicants decided on Spears.
The new coach is joung, has a lot to learn in some
lines, but when it conies to football no one can deny his
ability. He succeeded Frank Cnrniinugh as head coach of
Dartmouth In 1D17. but did not produce results until 11)10
because of the war. Last year he had one of the beet
teams In the East despite two defeats. At the end of tho
season It wns good enough to give nny team In the country
a stiff argument.
Looking over the last month of the season-, we find that
Dartmouth made a wonderful showing 0 showing which
apparently has been overlooked. Getting off to a bad start
against Pcnn Stntc, when Captain Robertson and other
stars were injured, the team staggcTrcd through tho month
of October, losing again to Sjracuse. Then came a re
versal in form. Cornell, Pennsylvania and Drown were
plajed on cotisecutive Saturdays and were defeated. On
the following Saturday the team traveled across the con
tinent nnd bent Washington by the score of 2S to 7.
This game was something to be proud of. With a
partisan crowd of .10.000 western fans watching them, n
score of 7 to 0 ngalnst them at the end of the first quarter,
the Dartmouth plajers woke up and shoved four touch
downs over the line before the final whistle blew. Win
ning four tough games in it row Is quite nn achievement,
and although the players were directly responsible some
credit must go to the coach. '

ANOTHhll home-run king Is about to make his debut
in the Amerlcnn League. He Is Karl Homer Sheely
of Salt Lake, and they say he is a regular fence-buster'
He was purchased by the White Sot n mnnrh n .,.t
Funny how Sheely has been allowed to remain in the
bushes for such a long time. He has been busting the
ball with vim and vigor, to say nothing of zest nnd fervor,
for the last four jears, but not once has he been given u
tumble by the big league scouts. Ho always hit
over .:t(X). every jeur he leads the league In home runs
and his fielding average is around .H00. It took the big
gest baseball scandal in history to get hlui into the Ameri
can League.
Sheely is twenty-five year old, six feet four Inches
tall and weighs over 200 pound. In 1017 he hammered
nineteen homers, twelve in 1018 and in 1010 find 11 total
of twenty -eight. The averages for this year have not yet
been published.

Sharkey Is Bach Number Now
YOI'NO JACK SHARKET apparently has hit the skids.
The defeat handed him by Roy Moore in New York
Wednesday night puts him further back on the shelf and
no longer will he be considered a championship possibility.
However, Jack should worry. He stepped Into fhc lime
light about a year ago when ho gained a newspaper deci
sion over Jimmy Wilde in Milwaukee. After that he was
considered a star, received good money for hi services
and should have enough aved to retire comfortably.
Roj Moore is the big noise now. Wonder how long he
will last?

In nt least one respect, the number of '
big professional leagues that onee more 1
sprang into existence. The Tnst is
the hotbed of the cage sport and no-1
where does one observe the interest
displned hereabouts. One of the en-i
couraging factors was the remarkable
growth of basketball in the vicinity of
New York, where the public hns taken ,
to the game nnd crowds of 8000 to
10.000 ore witnessing Sunday night
contents in the armories.
The "big wheels" in operation were I

Camden Was Supreme
Camden captured the highest honors
in the Eastern I.engue. The "Skeetcrs"
did the unusual in winning both the
first and second half titles nml only
one club gave them opposition. That
was (iermantown nnd tlie suburbanites
managed to split even with the title
holders on tho season.
At the start the Camden management
was in a quandary for a forwnrd. as

to terms, but Roy Steele imported a

Fonn Cage Commission
During the seaon there bad been so
mau disputes about plnjeis playing
m several lengues that a nmvinient was
atiiicbed for tlie torination ot a i-ngu
body on the snme order as the national
baseball commission. 'iiu men up
peared to be a good one and the organi
zation was formed, but already has
practically fallen through for lack of
a responsible head.
At various times Ormaiitown nnd
Philadelphia in particular nppeared
with a club composed of a number of
pickups while their stars were per
foimlng elsewhere. Ceiiniuitowu and
Philadelphia were practh ally stripped
of the best plajers. The three leaders.
Camden, Reading nml Trenton, re
mained intact and with veternn teams
had little trouble in taking a cum
ninuding lead. I
Oe of the drawbacks of basketball i
is that it is worked on too smoll n
scale. When the commission held its J
first meeting It wns agreed to post n
sum of S200 as good faith money on i
October 1. This tnrtiio was riilieu-
loush small if the body was to menu,
mi) thing. Rut the Penn State League
never made its deposit.
After two or three wrangles, re-
lotions iK-camo strained and a break ,
was imminent. When the breach
linnllv arrived Eastern League moguls
were Inlormeii tnai nn- sum- iriiitui-p.
bail nothing nt stake, hh they had
never jvosted an money, therefore the
National Cage Commission wns hardly
ever a reality.
Ml tin Leagues Prosper
All the interest was not centered In
the professional cage circuits. During
the war the cage sport was kep going
through the efforts of such wel-con-ducted
bodies ns the American and
Northwest Longucs and tho smaller
wheels are now In full blast.
In this city more than mm dozen
leugucs are plajing n regular sched
ule of weekly contests and all the cities
in the East have industrial organiza
tions and other club teams in organ
ized circuits.

Death Claimed Two
Cage Stars in 1920
During the bxllictliall season tho
sport suffered a severe loss In tho
death of two of tho most popubir
pl.ijers ever Identified wKJi the
game. .Tackle Ailnim, former Cam

Jackie came hero from Homestead
In 1012, and brought Eddie Dolin
and Jinmiie Itrown with him.
The other player to pass away
was Horace "Hohey" Kyfe, of
ficrrnantnwn. He was stricken wl'.lt
Intluoiua last February and after :i

fifth round of the national challenge cup
competition were held nnd protests heard
at a special meeting of the cup commit
tee of the United States Football Asso

The most important protest was that
of Erio A. A., of Kearney, N. J., in
tlie mntter of the game lost to Robins

Field lust Sunday. George Young, of
Philadelphia, the referee, submitted his
report in writing nml the testimony of

The committee decided, however, tliiit
the only valid ground for protest ad
vanced by Erie was the question of en
croachment by the spectators, und on
this point tlie referee's report was silent.
The linesmen were then instructed to
reduce their version to writing, and
tills will be submitted to the referee
for further action, which will be token
