Stout Veteran Trio Aided by
Williams Will Defend
United States
NEW YORK. Aug. 30.—World chal
lenge of American supremacy in out
door sport, faint though its knocks
upon well fortified doors have become,
will echo a final note of summer de
fiance in a clash of racquets this week
on the turf courts of the West Side j
Tennis club.
Davis cup teams of France and
Australia meet there in the closing
struggle of a long tournament along
many nations contending for the right 1
to close with the United States for the (
coveted international trophy. For five ;
There’s a wide
range of color
ful combinations
in Paris Wide
weaves. And the
width of selec
tion is no greater
than the extent
of comfort these
garters insure.
25c to $1
%ne for afresh pair?^
years the cup has been in possession ;
of Uncle Sam. secured behind the lon»
arm of William T. Tllden, the stout
heart of William Johnston and the
brilliant volleys of Vincent Richards
And this year the season's sign posts
point to another American triumph as
this trio take up the defense with It. i
Norris Williams.
The meeting of France and Australia,
opening on Friday with two singles!
matches and continuing with three re - I
maining contests Saturday and Labor !
L»ay, marks the second attempt of the
team under the tri-color in consecutive i
campaigns to wrest the challenge priv- '
ilege from the Antipodeans. Rene La- j
Coste and Jean Rorotra, the pair upon I
whom France pins her faith, come here ;
with Wimbledon honors partly obscur- i
ing their defeat by a single match last
year at the hands of the "down under”
men. But neither player has yet ap
parently reached the tennis heights
scaled at Wimbledon, .where LaCoste I
easily defeated Andersoh.
Their unexpected defeat by the
youthful Texans, White and Thalhei- ;
mer in the national doubels last week
at Brookline. Mass., in sharp contrast ;
to the determined fight which Hawkes ;
and Patterfon gave the new cham-J
pions, Richards and Williams, indicated j
only too clearly that the French stars j
had not yet become acclimated. Bo
r«>tra in* particular has experienced dif
ficulty in attaining top form, last year !
he proved the weak link in the tennis j
chain upon which the Australians ham- !
mered with successful racquets.
The challenge round battle at Phila
delphia will mark one of a very few
events of international tint at home In
a session of few thrusts at America’s i
claims as the ruling athletic nation. A j
rather drab outdoor program in pugi- j
llsm, contrasted with the colorful j
title bouts of the past in which Luis
Firpo, Georges Carpentier, Jimmy |
Wilde and Eugene Criqui appeared, ap
proaches its end with every world ring :
championship held by home warriors 1
r>f the resined battle field.
The defeat on the English links of
Clenna Collett, of Providence, R. I.. by
Joyce Wethered was more than offset
by her triumph in the French cham
pionship, by the victory Of Jim Barnes
In the English open and by the success
ful defense of the Canadian open
crown by Leo Diegel.
International tennis competition, with
the Davis cup final still to be played,
finds America called tb a closing test
power to surpass England's triumphs
n the Wightman series and the defeat
:>f the United States men’s team abroad
in English play. Triumphs contributed
last week by Helen Wills over Kath
leen McK«uie in the national title final
*nd by Williams and Richards over 1
foreign threats in the national doubles 1
:ourney have already fully redeemed ■
America's earlier reverses.
Track athletics, void of an Olympic
:est, h^ve provided no adequate basis
for comparison, although American
earns have toured Europe and#the Ori
ent with son»q measure of success. A
•weeping victory for American army
>olo players over England in an inter
national series abroad thus leaves for
British sportsmen only the comfort of
lack Beresford’s decisive sculling vlc
ory against Walter Hoover.

It isn't far away, folks. Meaning, of course the 1925 football season.
In fact the start of the practice grinds Is right upon us and within a
fortnight the thud of the leather t oe against the pigskin will have
drowned out In no small amount the crash of the frail meeting horse
Four weeks from now the o^enin? grid battles will have been
played, touchdowns will have been scored, field goals will have been
booted and the greatest and grandest sport of them all will have taken
hold to rule until the November turkey has been done away with and
is Weil on the way to the soup pot.
Practically all of the major southern elevens will start their prelim
inaries a week from today. A few will issue their initial call a bit
later, but not many. The old dummy is in for a pummelling after some
ten or eleven months' rest, students' vocal chords are due to be unloos
ened and reams of football dope are slated to pour out of the business
ends of the correspondents' typewriters.
Most of the Dixie conference teams have taken on ambitious schedules
and there will be more "big'' games in Dixie this season than ever be
fore. The inter-sectional fever has greatly died down and this makes
for more southern appearances of the teams. Mid-October will see prac
tically every s. C. team launched well on its "heavy" menu. Six and
seven conference games for conference teams are not unusual this sea
son, while past years' averages were, perhaps, four.

burn, in certain to lie n well heeled

up nt Mlddlehury with n small

team were usually able to roll up
points against any of ’em and
that includes the major eastern
tea ms.

You can put it down that a high
scoring team always has some
crafty. Ingenious coaching brain
behind it. The long gains don’t
come unless interference has been
figured; unless each cog is doing
what it is supposed to do; unless
the backs have been taught what
to do in this case and in that case;
unless the team has been thor
oughly drilled so that what to do
at the right time becomes the nat
ural thing to do.
The Morey-Pitts, offensive-de
fensive combination should work
wonders nt Auburn. It has been
tradition that Auburn should pro
neiRniy, pni siriiiiy powcr
ful tennis. We have n hunch that
Brother Morey h going to look
first for speed, second for brains
anil—-then, perhaps—for brawn. It
has not been our pleasure yet to
meet the new Tiger mentor per
sonally and we are drawing: our
own conclusions from what we
have learned of Morey’s past ac
complishments and piecing: to
gether with our knowledge of the
trend of modern football.
We believe Morey will seek a
quartet of swift, sure footed and
sure handed ends. Also that he will
develop a back field in which ev
ery member' is well skilled in the
starting of forward passes as well
as being adept at handling the
business end of the tosses. After
these have been developed—it may
take a couple of years—then you
can watch the Tiger’s smoke. A
rangy, fast shifting line will be
sought often, we believe, this now
being a necessity where open play
is specialized upon. We are con
fident that Morey is going to de
velop a greater offense than Au
burn has had in several sea

Weight More
Important Now
Than Formerly
THEY Didn't talk SO MUCH OF
-BUT?--NOW !!!
Speaking: of the discrepancy in weight
between Champion Jack Dempsey, with
Harry Greb as an opponent, brings to
mind the fact that twenty years ago
weight was seldom considered seriously
after 160 pounds. Bob Fitzsimmons,
Kid McCoy and Tommy Burns were
usually outweighed in their fights by
forty or fifty pounds, but nobody has
ever accused those birds of being "set
Fitzsimmons tipped the beam at 170
when he fought Jeffries at 225. , Kid
McCoy, at 160, met Tom Sharkey, weigh
ing 190. Tommy Burns notched 165
when he took on Jack Johnson at 210.
Mitchell only weighed 165 when he and
John L. Sullivan fought. Dempsey car
ried 190 pounds and Jess Willard 245
when Jack won the title.
While in this list the biggest man
usually won, their smaller opponents
would never by any stretch of the
imagination be called soft picking.
Frisch’s homer with Sduthworth on base in
the oening inning, decided the first game.

Western Wins Close
Game From Atlantc
Montgomery Shopmen anc
Georgia Terminal Team
Stage Contest at Bowl
Guy Waller’s single, scoring Welsh
in the seventh inning paved the way
for a 3-2 victory for the West Point
Route over the Atlanta Joint Terminal
Sunday, at Cramton Bowl. The timely
blow decided a pitcher’s battle between
Jones and Alley.
The local club jumped away to a
two-run lead in the first inning on hits
by Kaminsky, Riddle and Waller, but
after this were held in check until the
seventh. Errors by the visitors in the
early stages of the game gave the
Western chances to score, but the nec
essary hit was lacking.
Alley held the Atlanta crew to five
hits, two coming in the second when
the visitors scohed a run. The Western
hurler, retired twelve by the strike out
route. Jones was touched for only
seven hits, but had two bad innings,
the first and seventh. The visitors
threatened in the ninth when Ferguson
led off with a single, but Johnson
fanned. Jones forced Ferguson, and
here Waller threw wild to first, but
Alley backed up the initial station and
Jones was held at first. Ayres closed
the game by striking out. The locals
will play the Louisville and Nashville
club of Mobile here next Sunday.
