Aussies Win National Doubles,
Dimming U. S. Davis Cup Hopes ly the Associated Press BROOKLINE, Mass., Aug. 22.— Tennis records that date back as long as 30 years prove that when ever Australians gain the national doubles titles, their nation wins the highly prized Davis Cup. That happened back in 1919, when Norman Brooks and Gerald Patterson won at Longwood. It also was true in 1939, when Jack Bromwich and Adrian Quist de feated Jack Crawford and Harry Hopman in an all-Australian na tional doubles windup here at Longwood. Bromwich and Billy Sid well gained the 1949 national doubles crowns yesterday by defeating their countrymen, #Frank Sedg man and George Worthington, 6—4, 6—0. 6—1. And while the victorious Aussies were playing under wraps, the members of the United States Davis Cup team and their ad visory board saw little that en hanced their chances of defend ing the international trophy at Forest Hills. N. Y., starting this Friday. In their ways to the finals, Sedgman and Worthington, who teamed together for the first time here last week, ousted the defend ing champions, Gardnar Mulloy and Billy Talbert, in four sets. The latter have been given the United States tDavis Cup assign ments. Both Bromwich and Sidwell were far more impressive than . Richard (Pancho) Gonzales, the 5 national singles titlist, who, with . the veteran Frankie Parker, bowed [ to those Australian aces in the ; semifinal round. The other playing member of j the American Davis Cup team, [ I Ted Shroeder, spent most of his time here last week practicing for ' the trophy competition. But he ' has been out of competition since ’ he won the Wimbledon singles honors early last month. The Australians appear confi dent that they will win at least three of the five Davis Cup en gagements.

Atchison Star Staff Corrtipondant LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22.—Billick Whelchel, coach of the Washing ton Redskins, today hamed a starting lineup for Friday’s game with the Los Angeles Rams, but he wouldn’t promise a winner. “We’re not ready,’’ he said. “We’re in good condition, but I won’t know how good these boys are until we’ve played a few games and polished off the rough spots. No matter what happens—even if we win—I can tell you now we aren’t ready.” The lineup is subject to change and already Tackle John Konis zewski apparently has been ruled out. Troubled two years by a nerve in his shoulder, a memento of war service in the Marine Corps, Koniszewski’s football ca reer may be at an end. He was to consult a specialist today, but Whelchel said he thinks “John is not long for this team,” and Dr. Alexandro Castro, team physician, confirmed that viewpoint. Didn’t Bank on Koniszewski. Certainly Koniszewski's loss would be serious, but not neces sarily fatal to the Redskins’ chances for an improved record this year. He missed much of the rough stuff because of his shoul der, and Whelchel apparently dealt him out of his plans long before this. Defensively the new Redskin coach will count on Sam Gold man and Jim Peebles to keep the Rams' flock of fleet backs from running outside. If they try the middle he figures they'll nave to show explosive driving power to budge John Adams, Bob Hendren, John Badisczewski or Laurie Niemi. Dan Sandifer, Harry (Doody) Dowda. Ed Quirk, Howie Living ston. all good defensive backs, will carry the brunt of the secondary work. Everybody but Sam Baugh and Harry Gilmer probably will be used before the evening is over. Baugh Named to Start. Whelchel has named a back field comprising Baugh, Eddie Saenz. Sandifer and Quirk to start the game. The line will have Hal Crisler and Joe Tereshinski at ends, Mike Roussos and Adams at tackles, John Steber and Mike Katrishen at guards and A1 De mao at center. "But we may change that around, depending on the position of the ball when we get possession,’’ he continued. “We don’t know what’s going to happen. If we did there d be no sense playing the game.’’ SOUTH ATLANTIC LEAGUE. Charleston 3-2 _ AukUsta 2-0 Macon o Columbus 4 Savannah at Jacksonville postponed, rain.
