Lynch Makes His First Tennis Triumph Here an Overwhelming One
Bride Thrilled as Victor,
Finding New Skill, Wins
in Straight Sets.
No Evening Star Tennis Cup ever
was held wiih more pride than that
which Hugh—and Barbara—Lynch
fondled today. It was won by the
former yesterday when he recorded
probably the most decisive defeat ever
inflirted on a runner-up in the 9-year
history of the City of Washington
Perhaps the sight of that shining
prize had a migical effect on Lynch
before he started play. Perhaps the
fact that he never had won a singles
tournament here since coming to
Washington in the spring of 1935 made
him fight all the harder to clinch a
match in which he entered a slight
favorite. Perhaps—and this might
have been the most compelling mo
tive—Lynch was playing his first tour
nament as a married man, and the
thought of a winsome little girl want
ing her husband to be champion made
him realize he couldn’t let the little
woman down.
Whatever the reason for as inspired
bit of tennis as this tou*n has seen
in many a day. Hugh Lynch yester
day made Lt. Jimmy Farrin feel Just
like Barney Ross must have felt last
Tuesday night when Henry Armstrong
was through w-ith him.
Farrin Fights to End.
Like Ross, Farrin never gave up,
but that's about as much as can be
said for the hiterto sensational young
naval lieutenant.
It was over so quickly—the 21 games
of the three sets were completed in
less than an hour—that many of the
spectators arrived too late to see more
than one service by each player. The
scores were 6—0, 6—0, 6—3. and
Lynch won 15 games in a row before
Far-in earned a sympathetic applause
by finally crashing through Lynch’s
service on the fourth game of the
third set.
Tennis fans who have watched
Lynch ever since he came here after
jrraduating from Princeton said he
never approached the form which he
showed yesterday. Despite the fact
that he was up against a man whose
main forte was speed and court
coverage. Lynch time and again scored
on placements which sped past the
naval officer like tracer bullets.
His backhand, hitherto notoriously
weak, afforded no loop-holes yester
day. Though not returned with the
speed of his firmly-hit forehand, balls
off Lynch's backhand were nearly as
In short. Lynch completely out
classed Parrin who, it must be ad
mitted. was nowhere near the form
which three times had carried him
to victory over ranking players last
Cup Thrills Wife.
Four of the 21 games Lynch won
• t love. In three others Farrin was
able to score only one point. Only i
twice In the first two sets was the i
victim able to deuce the scoie. Lyncn !
won 12 points in a row to end the
first set, taking the fifth and sixth 1
games at love. Those statistics, bet
ter than anything else, show the su
periority of the seeded No. 1 player
over the man who had been thought
well enough of to seed second.
It was a happy victory for Lynch.
The curly-haired personable ex-Tiger
was pointing for the championship
and it would have been a bitter blow
had he lost. The "always a brides
maid. never a bride" gag had gotten
under the lad's skin recently, for it !
was true that Lynch several times j
had knocked at a title's door, only to
be refused entrance at the final round.
Mrs. Lynch, his bride of less than j
a year, who watched her husband
in his first tournament, was Just as
thrilled as Hugh. Indeed, it was i
hard to pry her loose from the Star j
Cup once her husband had given it !
to her to hold. When she left home |
yesterday she wondered where there 1
was enough space to put it If Hugh
could win it.
"Dont. worry, though." she said
• fter the match, “we'll make a place
for it.”

Bumps Off Chief Rival.
Booker Slab Star.
Ttrvip Liquor was in undisputed
possession of first place in the Na
tional City League today due to a
10-1 victory’ over the Union Printers,
but it had John De Bettencourt of the
Fairfax Farms Dairy team to thank
for it.
De Bettencourt it was who pitched
the Dairy nine to a 12-3 victory over
Police Boys’ Club No. 4. which, before
the game, had been tied with Rose
Liquor for the loop leadership.
The Liquor nine won on Charlie
Booker’s four-hit pitching and marked
up its fourth straight victory. Cullins,
Hickman and Robeson each got two
hits for the winners.

Competition at White Heat
As Junior and Boy Netmen
Play Star Quarter-Finals
Junior and boy tennis competition
in The Star Tournament, warm over
the wpek end, was approaching the
white-hot stage as the Juniors played
four-quarter-final matches this after
| noon and the boys prepared for their
semi-finals tomorrow,
i With interscholastic rivalry adding
1 an extra bit of spice to the junior
j tournament, Western's championship
bound team was reveling in the fact
i that it had three of the seven quarter
finalists who are eligible to play in
i the national interscholastics. David
Johnsen, the ranking No. 1 junior, is
a freshman at George Washington
One of Western’s trio was due to
drop out today, however, as Miguel
Nunez—rated only behind Johnsen—
played Ham Bonham, a teammate.
Ken Dalby, Western's third repre
sentative, met Grant Wilmer of St.
Albans, while Leonard Sokol of Cen
tral played Dewitt Smith. Jr., of
Be thesda-Chevy Chase and Byron
Matthews of Eastern tested Johnsen.
Play Semi-Finals Tomorrow.
The winners of the Nunez-Bonham
and Sokol-Smith matches will meet
in one of the semi-finals, with the
Dalby - Wilmer, Johnsen - Matthews
survivors clashing in the semi of the
other bracket. These matches may be
played tomorrow.
Tomorrow's outstanding attraction,
however, is due to come in the boys'
division, in which Maurice Cowan, the
favorite and seeded No. 1 entrant,
meets a real threat in Bob Bensinger.
Unseeded because little information
was forthcoming about him, Ben

lone dark horse. By defeating John
Lincoln, one of Edgemoor's better boy
players, yesterday to the tune of
6—1, 6—C, Bensinger completed two
days of play with the loss of only one
game. He should prove a decided
test for Cow'an.
In the boys’ other semi-final Eddie
Richardson meets Chandler Brassard.
Seeded second and third, respectively,
Richardson is a favorite to enter the
Five Junior doubles matches this
afternoon were to get that tournament
into the quarter-finals. Johnson and
Smith have been seeded the No. 1
team, with Western's No. 1 doubles
team of Bonham and Dalby rated
second. A match between Sterling Lee
and Jack Hoopes and Bill Kerr and
David Smith was to take the boys'
doubles to the semi-finals. Gow’an and |
! Lincoln have been stamped as the
team to beat.
While Johnsen did nothing yester
day to diminish the fact that he is
the odds-on junior to win. taking two
matches with the loss of only one
game, greater interest was provided
in five other matches whose winners
entered the quarters.
Tansey Presses Bonham.
| Bonham had quite a time with Ted
! Tansey, who won Western's individual
tournament, before he was able to van
j quish his schoolmate by scores of 6—0.

that it went only two sets, found By

LOS ANGELES. June 6—Now that

Levity That Marked Drills
for First Fight With
Teuton Missing.
Associstfd Press Sports Writer.
NEW YORK, June 6.—The change
that has come over Joe Louis in the
two years since his first unfortunate
encounter with Max Schmeling’s right
fist is exemplified in his training
quarters at Pompton Lakes, N. J.
Compared to the hotspot at Lake
wood, where he trained, more or less,
the other time. Joe's present retreat is
a cross between an old folks’ home
and a monastery garden.
They’ve even installed a green fence
around the old Colonial home where
the champ gets his slumber, and after
about 10 o’clock of an evening there
isn t a sound to break the stillness
except the deep, resonant snoring of
well-fed sparring partners.
Joe, the boxer who grew older,
spends much of his spare time rowing
a heavy boat about the lake at his
back door, and perhaps even meditat
Would Forget Lakewood
Veterans of the Lakewood camp,
back in the days when Joe was the
brownest bomber of them all. recall
it fondly as one of the gayest, most
successful fish fries ever held in New
Jersey. Joe was a pouting immortal
riding a merry-go-round.
No thoughts of Schmeling. the old
man training somewhere elsp. were
permitted to intrude upon the hilarity
of Lakewood. Some w’ho stayed around
long enough to grasp the real spirit
of the carnival forgot completely who
it was that Louis was getting ready
to bop over.
It didn’t much matter, because here
was the greatest fighter who ever
lived, a veritable super-fighter, and
who was Schmeling except a stubborn j
German who had been knocked cold I
by the playboy Max Baer.
Joe went through the motions of
training, but he devoted most of his
time to playing golf, shaking hands
with the hero-worshipers who crowded
his hotel, and listening to the music.
He made personal appearances at
sandlot ball games to improve his
wind and stamina.
The mere mention of Lakewood now |
causes the entire Louis entourage to
wince violently. It’s something they
rather would forget.
Throw nights at joe.
This time, there can be slight
doubt, Louis will face Max in as near
perfect condition as a man can get.
Before he completes his training he
will have boxed at least 90 rounds with
the toughest lot of sparring partners
you ever looked at.
All of them are encouraged, even
ordered, to throw right-hand wallops
at Joe's jaw. and he already has ab
sorbed a thousand or so. It is obvious !
he expects Schmeling*to*‘ag him with
some more of those lettii'^haymakers,
and he is prepared to take them.
There is no inclination here to try
to name the winner at this stage of
the game, but you may be certain
that the Louis who climbs through the
ropes two weeks from Wednesday
night will be a better man In every
respect than the one Schmeling splat
tered in 1936.
Abandoning Pushovers, D.C.
Hopeful Is Underdog in
Battle Tonight.
Divorcing himself from the com
pany of collapsible opponents. George
Abrams tonight at Griffith Stadium
will attempt to wedge his way into the
realm of feared fighters, facing Teddy
Yarosz, former world middleweight
champion, in a 10-round bout.
A local lad who is familiar with
virtually every middleweight mummy
in the ruins of ringdom, Abrams meets
in Yarosz a fighter who is in the
twilight of his career, but still clever
enough to warrant eighth ranking
position in fistiana’s toughest division.
And despite Abrams’ impressive record
of 19 victories in 20 engagements,
compiled at the expense of mediocre
mittmen, Yarosz will reign a 2-1
Yarosz, 28-year-old PolLsh-Amer
ican, employs a crisp left hand as his
chief weapon, a southpaw sock W’hich
has commanded respect from the
middleweight elite, and unless Abrams
reveals less receptive tendencies than
he displayed in his last encounter
that blow will be the medium through
w’hich Teddy carves out anothrr
triumph. On that occasion, against
Jimmy O'Boyne, Abrams absorbed too
many left hooks in winning.
Can Afford to Wait.
Abrams hardly is standing at tha
crossroads of his career, since he is
not scheduled to collide with anes
thetic punchers until next year even
if he survives the Yarosz test. He
still will be matched against good
boxers if he wins, but Manager Syd
Fishel doesn't expect to expose
George's features to a knockout spe
cialist until he has another season of
campaigning behind him. At the
tender age of 19 he can afford to
A shuffling, cagey fighter. Yarosz
favors a damaged right knee which
twice has been carved but hardly
cured. Teddy consequently is no
bouncing, stay-on-top-of-'rm fighter,
but a deadly dose when his opponent
elects to carry the fight. Unless
George chooses to take the offensive,
and indications are that he will, the
scrap conceivably can be very tame.
George possibly is being placed over
his head, but ringworms have refused
to plank coin on the line any longer
to view him in action with fistiana's
derelicts and a bout with a foe of
recognized caliber is the only tonic
which can preserve his popularity.
Jimmy Jones, who kayoed George,
only to be outpointed two weeks later,
distinctly is a third rater, but, sig
nificantly, the best opponent. Abrams
has met.
Studies Yarosz Film.
Abrams’ lengthy conditioning grind
has been predicted on fashioning an
offense to capitalize on Teddy's flat
footed punching style and necessitated
slowness. He has studied moving
pictures of Yarosz in action against
Babe Risko and prepped by Lew Ten
dler, lightweight great in the era of
Benny Leonard. Tendier will be in
George's corner while Ray Arcel, rec
ognized as ringdom's foremost trainer,
will close Teddy's cuts, if any.
Should George lose it will complete
the route of once promising local
fighters. His flaws have been revealed
previously, but he still retains his status
as this sector's mast likely prospect
and may succeed where Marty Gal
lagher, Bob Tow, Natti Brown, Lou
Gevinson. Phil Full, etc., failed.
Steve Mamakos and Wisky Harkins,
welterweights, will swing in the 8
round semi-final, while another 8
rounder lists Abe Denner bumping into
Tony Dupre in a featherweight en
counter. Joe Temes and Billy Bul
lock are slated for six rounds, with a
4 rounder opening the card at 8:30
