BASEBALL SPORTS OF ALL KINDS-BOXING
Tennis follower were treated to a
big surprise when W. M. Johnston de
feated his fellow Californian, Maurice
McLoughlin, for the national singles
championship. The defeat itself was
not entirely unexpected. Johnston
had prepared the way for it by elim
inating Champion Williams. But the
easy fashion in which the new cham
pion accomplished his task was not
looked fof. McLoughlin took the first
set, and thenceforth was not in the
match. He lost the second set with
out winning a game, something that
has never happened to him before. In
the final two sets he tired perceptibly
and could not meet the attack of his
younger opponent Johnston is only
twenty years old.
Western women fared well in the
first round of play for the national
golf championship at Onwentsia,
eight surviving play. Miss Elaine
Rosenthal, the western champion,
recovered her form and won her
match easily. Miss Alexa Stirling of
Atlanta, Ga., defeated Mrs. H. D'.
Hammond, Indianapolis, former west
ern champion, on the 19th green.
Miss Lililan Hyde, New York, played
the best golf of the day in defeating
Mrs. A. Liveright of Philadelphia.
Jim Pugh's Disturber IV. had an
easy time in the first race for the
Wrigley motorboat trophy, covering
the thirty and one-half mile course
in the lake at a speed of 49.4 miles
There is little betting op tno Mc-Farland-Gibbons
battle, to be held in
New York Saturday night The men
are even choices with those putting
up any money, McFarland gaining
friends as a result of reports from the
training camps. It is not likely,
however, that Gibbons will be out of
condition. Mike expects to say in
the fight game and must make a good
showing to continue as a drawiug
card. He will not retire so long as
money is as jasy asin ibis battle.

Though the Red Sox seem to have l
hit something of a slump in their se
ries with the Yankees, losing three
straight, and losing because they,
were outplayed every step of the way, .
they have not been overtaken, as De-.
troit over the same period hit some
rough spots in St Louis and then .
fell before the White Sox yesterday.,,.
Now comes the schedule to the aid
of the Boston people. To break theii
slump they have a couple of gameaj
booked with the Mackmen, who have
been easy for them all season. Such'j
breaks as this are counted on tojgi$
