   Washington Post, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1913, Washington, District Of Columbia                               TOtJS WASHIKGTOK POST: JULY 20, TO TENNIS FINAL REACH FINALS IN BACHELOR CLUB TENNIS TOUENEY. IU.S.PLAYERSWIN "AT THE SIOIC OF THE MOON." Hellen and Lewis to Play for Bachelor Club Title. TOUBNBY FEATURED BY CLOSE MATCHES Only Two Decided by Love Route During Week of Competition. BY W. H. Arthur Hellen and George have reached the finals in the closed tourney of Bachelor Lawn Tennis Club, which has been in prosreee on the courts of this organisation in Woodley Lane during the past week. These two racketers will meet this afternoon for the title, pjay starting at 3 o'clock. Both of the, survivors had a compara- tively easy time in working their way to a try for championship, Helien encoun- tering' hJs strongest opposition in the person of A. J. Gore, in the second" stage of competition, winning ojut after losing the first set by and this being the only match In Which he was forced to go ttie limit to get a decision. Hellen was also given a close battle in the semifinal round, but was master of the 'situation at all times in defeating C. Herrle, and Narrow Margin It. Lewis did not run into any real diffi- culty until he had to battle Douglas Ktill- yer In the semifinals. This meeting brought about the highest class of play of the tourney, two of the sets being deuced, and many of the games repeat- edly so. It was finally decides and Lewis gaining the verdict by being slightly more accurate in the "pinches" than his rival. Hillyer earlier in tourney had caused himself to be picked by the "wise ones" to work his way to the finals by defeat- ing A. W. Howard in the second round of play. In this clash, though Hillyer won in two straight sets, he was sent SO games before he accomplished pur- pose, the' last set going to Although the entry list was not of large proportions, it is doubtful if the event has ever been excelled In Wash- ington for the closeness of the competi- tion, most of the preliminaries providing tennis of a high brand. This la exempli- fied in the fact that there have been only two games of the love variety. The summaries follow: Preliminary Hellen defeated K. M. Karcher, I and A. J. Gore defeated H. B. Gregory. and C. Herrlfl defeated E. Y. Webb. and Ij. A. Flsoher de- feated H. B. Burton. and Flrrt Calder defeated C. M. McCul- loch. and M. Trurabull defaulted to B C. A. B. Ifwlt defeated O. H. Daw- son, Hellen defeated Qore. and Herrle defeated Fischer. and O. Lewis defeated A. H. Button. and Douglas Hillyer defeated A. W. Howard, and H. defeated J. Maury Dove, Jr., and Second defeated Calder, and Rellen defeated A. E. fcewta, by de- fault: a. Lewis defeated Herrle, anil Hillyer defeated dower, and Semifinal defeated Floumor, end Lewis defeated Hillyer. aad It has been decided by the Bachelors to send a team to Richmond on August 2 to play the Country Club of Virginia. There will likely be six matches In singles and three liv sextet hfcs'not as yet been chosen, but Hellen, Lewis, Hillyer, Howard, and Fischer are prac- tically sure of places. George Lewis, who plays Hellen today for the championship ot the Bachelor Club, is going to enter the national tour- nament at Newport, and Is especially anxious on this account to be successful in the match with his clubmate. One of the surprises of the Bachelor tourney was the defeat of "Lou" Fischer C. Herrle, the latter having greatly improved on his game this season. Herrle stands a grand chance to be the sixth member of the team that makes the trip to Richmond. Henry M. Barry, secretary to Senator Colt, of Rhode Island, Is an enthusiastic of tennis. He was elated to re- port the other day that he Will be able to get away on his vacation in time to the national championship matches at Newport. It is planned to run off the double events of the Bachelor Club this week. There will be no other tourneys of note in Washington until the District cham- pionship events are staged on the Colum- bia Country Club courts in the fall. It is not known definitely that "Connie" no-vie will take part in the national championship, but it Was his intention eailier in the season to do if he could fcprf.ro the time. He is at present In Cali- fornia in connection with his duties as a member of the botanical force of the Agucultural Department. If Doyle goes to .Newport he will likely pair In the doubles with Fred Colston, of Baltimore. CULBER LEADS MARKSMEN. Breaks 85 of 1OO Targets at White Flyer Club Shoot. i: L.

Finish. New York, July scarcity of good horses at present is well shown by the fact tbat at Belmont park today the Well-endowed Kings county handicap, added, came down to a three-horse race, one of them an added starter, the selling plater Donald MacDonald, who came within a head of landing the stake. The othet two were Lahore and Me- ridian. The last named was conceding a lot of weight, U pounds, to lAhore, but was favorite. For 6 furlonga he had all hlg old speed and hala a good lead, but long before the critical stretch turn -was reached Meridian 'showed to close ob- servers thsit he would run out. This he did, to the dismay of thou- sands. He lost at least 10 lengths by it, but even then, when straight, it looked for a long time as if he might get up again. -But he failed, and after the race it was seen that he was quite lame in tbe near foreleg. 9 Meantime Lahore, who raced good all the way, came on up the stretch in close pursuit of Donald MacDonald, who had also lost some ground on the Jura, and the result of a well-fought finish was a head victory for Lahore.

The brilliant team work of the Ameri- cans waa the feature of the match Mc- Loughtln particularly proved capable, and although at times he let down, he was able to resume his form when he consid- ered his whirlwind service or mighty smashes necessary. The sympathies of the crowd evidently ware with the losers, and the spectators cheerad frantically when the Canadians took a number of love games in the tedi- ous third set Schwengers was the star player on his side today. Mis cross-court strokes proved tremendously effective. Powell played his usual careful and accu- rate frame Challenge Round Starts July 25. In the finals all the players except Powell wore spikes. This aroused con- siderable criticism from the officials and the members of the All-England Tennis Club, who complain that although rules don't forbid such praotioe, consid- eration for the famous championship court, as well as games, should make rubber spies obligatory. According to present plans the chal- lenge games will .be played at Wimble- don on July 26, 26, and 28 The United States team. Hackett, R. Nofrls Williams, and Wallace P.
