FT. WAYNE, Ind.. Aug. U. —It now
lies between Indianapolis and l ieveland
In the tri-state tennis argument that has
been carried on at the Ft. Wayne Coun
try club since last Saturday.
Upsets In the women's division of the
meet have been plentiful, but after the
first few rounds of play the fans drawn
here by the meet picked Fritz Bastian.
Johnny Hennessey, Walter Westbrook
and Kenneth Simmons as the four best
men’s bets and today these four had
reached the semi-finals and were ready
to battle for final round positions.
Hennessey and Bastian, the Indianap
olis flashes, were to meet and W est
hrook and Simmors, Cleveland players,
were to settle a little debate of their own.
The winners of today's matches will
meet tomorrow for the championship of
the biggest tournament staged in this
section of the country.
Fate has played a prominent part in
this tournament. For the first time in
as far back as some net enthusiasts can
remember, Johnny Hennessey and Fritz
Bastian drew positions in the same
bracket and they were to clash in some- ‘
thing other than a championship match.
As usual, their match today was doped
to be “one of the season's greatest.’’
These two Indianapolis youths will meet
In tournament play as often, or more so,
than any other net rivals In the coun
try, but no matter when their mntch
rolls around, the fans set back and pre
pare to witness a real tennis battle. The
beauty part of the thing is. Johnny and
Fritz are so evenly matched that their
match Is never decided until the referee
checks up the last point.
Taking things as they stood today, In
dianapolis looked like the champion pro
ducer. Westbrook and Simmons, the
Cleveland players, hold about the same
position in the temiis world, with West
brook. a little stronger.
A Westbrook victory today, or a Sim
mons win by a close margin, should
mean that Indianapolis will have easy
sailing tomorrow, whether Bastian or
Hennessey is carrying her banner, be
cause Hennessey proved himself su
perior to the Cleveland star In the In
tercity matches staged on the Indianap
olis Tennis association courts last Sun
day, and it does not seem as though
he’ has lost any of his brilliancy (lur
ing the play here thi3 week. Neither
does it appear that Westbrook is play
ing any better game now than he ex
hibited’Sunday afternoon.
The Indianapolis boys have shown the
sterner stuff this week and either of
them will be a heavy favorite to tear off
a win tomorrow.
In the men's doubles today, Hennessey
and Bastian were to meet another Indi
anapolis pair, Starbuck and Parker, and
Westbrook and Simmons were to clash
with Westenhaver and Raseman in the
semi-finals. This was another Indian
npolis-Clevelana show, with Hennessey
and Bastian and Westbrook and Sim
mons the favorites to enter the final
Mildred Rask was to meet Ruth King
and Ruth Wise was scheduled against
Mrs. Howard Cordes in tile women’s sin
gles semi-final round.
In the women’s doubles eeml-flr.als
Miss Wise and Jean King were to meet
Ruth Wise and Bobble Esch, while
Misses Killie and Friend were to tangle
with the Rask-Cordes combination.

Ruth to Help Police
Sell Field Day Tickets
NEW YORK, Aug. 6.—Babe Ruth Is
always willing to do his bit for the good
of society.
He feels particularly gratefully to the
police after they rescued him from a mob
of enthusiastic fans who threatened to
give him an affectionate squashing after
he made the home run that broke his
ia.'t season’s record.
So if anybody is surprised at the vast
r umber of tickets sold for the police
field day games, scheduled for Aug. 21
and 28 at Gravesend Bay, all he needs
to solve the mystery is to know that a
baseball and bat autographed by the

Chicago Pro Beats Out Barnes
by One Stroke in Big
CHICAGO, Aug. 6.—Jock Hutchinson
of Glc-nview club. Chicago. Thursday cap
tured the open golf championship of the
Western Golf association at Olympia
Fields club with a total of 296 strokes

Carney of Chicago with 304. J. J. O’Brien
and E. Loefler of Pittsburg with 806
each, and Larry Ayton of Chicago with
307. completed the ten prize winners.
The leader fell oft In the last round,
taking SO for the short course, and had
scarcely totaled his 296 when word came
that Barnes was going well and needed
only par on the last three holes to win.
The St. Louis player reached the last
tee with four strokes to tie Hutchinson,
who had taken six on that hole. Barnes
drove 260 yards across a creek, but the
ball rolled into a woods behind a stump.
From an apparently impossible lie
Barnes sent the ball to the green and
had an 18-foot putt for victory. Ho
gave the ball plenty of chance to go
down, but was an Inch off the line and
missed the five-foot side hill second putt
for a tie.
Hutchinson has never won a title be
fore. although he has made many course
records in competition, Including a 71
on the 6,576-yard course, bettering par
by three strokes and the previous rec
ord by two strokes. He went over par
on only two holes.
Among the unusual plays Thursday
was one scored by Frank Adams of Win
nipeg. who holed his mashie shot on
the 135-vard 14-hole, and an eagle two
on the 390-yard eleventh where L. J.

Tribe Strives to Stage Come
back as in Recent Saint
Jack Hendricks! Indiana were hoping to
start something in today’s game early
enough to give them a chance.
In the Miller battles Wednesday and
Thursday the Hoosiers almost did it, but
not quite. They failed to reach in ninth
inning rallies both days, so in the third
skirmish of the series this afternoon the
Tribe athletes hoped to get going a little
earlier in the game.
A victory today and one tomorrow will
give the Indians an even break on the
series and a record similar to that es
tablished against St. Paul in which the
Hoosiers dropped the first two and won
the last two.
At any rate more thrills were prom
ised this afternoon. In fact, there Is a
thrill every day all Washington park this
season, and if it i%’t a wordy argument
between players anu umpires it is a bril
liant catch of some sort.
Umpire McGloon Is worse than Shan

Can you beat it? The chesty Saints
have dropped four straight games, two
to the Indians and two toHhe Hens. Mike
Kelley may be forced to cancel that fish

Today was “Ladies’ day” at Washing
ton park and the largest Friday atten
dance of the season was promised.
Jones or Cavet was to be seen on the
firing line for the Hoosiers.
Fsns gathered around Umpires Murray
and McGloon after the game yesterday
and gave McGloon a terrific bombardment
of the “razz.” “Look how white he is,"
shouted a fan. “Aw, be ain’t white,” an
swered Murray, trying to keep up Mc-
Gloon’s nerve. However, Murray was
(areftil to keep at his partner’s side while
passing through the stands.
Manager Hendricks today announced
a change In the Tribe lineup. Wolf was
to play second, Smith shortstop and
Sehreiber third base, leaving Kores to
do bench duty. Wolf gives signs of hit
ting better than Kores, while Smith has
wanted to play short and Sehreiber has
asked to be stationed at third. The
shakeup is expected to bolster the In
dians In both fielding and batting.
Barney Dreyfus,, owner and presi
dent of the Pittaf>urg Nationals, was
in the city yesterday and attended
the game. He is on a scouting trip.
Rch Russell, former White Box. former
Miller and former Indian, is back with
the Millers. Being an Indianapolis resi
dent, it wan easy for Russell to break
into the Miller lineup due to the injury
to Rondeau, lteb got two hits yester
day. but ids double should have been
caught by Rehg.
Four double plays were made in the
game, three by the Indians and one by
the Millers. Umpire McGloon helped in
the Miller double killing and that is
when Sehreiber was sent to the club
With Jennings on third and one out in
the eighth Jimmy Smith negotiated a
neat play. lie speared Sawyer's liner
and tossed to Korea, getting Jennings off

Duke Rellley cut up in left field in fine

but the ground drives had him puzzled.

other cities represented in the semi

the advantage of playing on his home

dashing game this week and Indianapolis
fans were backing him Just as heavy as
i Kokomo was backing Resener.

! Simpson sank a twelve-foot putt in an
I effort to cop the last hole and square
! the match, but Sparks came along with
, one from almost the same distance to
j halve the hole and win the match.
Although realizing that Sparks was a
dangerous player, the large gallery that
1 followed the match had picked Simpson
to win.
