Those who have been devoting considerable thought and effort to make certain of the success of the national championship when it is played in Augvist on the turf at Forest Hills are making every effort to secure the entry of the famous California Comet. It is admitted McLoughlih. who is the idol of players in every part of the world, will at once reestablish the prestige of the American championship, which has badly slumped during] the last two seasons. McLoughlin is regarded be practically a certain winner it he is drawn and starts In the tournament. The popularity of such a victory is by no means underestimated by those who direct the affairs of lawn tennis. In no uncertain way it would represent the most sensational come-back ever recorded on the courts of thisj country. As the pet of Wimbleton and of the great international matches, a triumph for McLoughlin this yeav would serve as an inspiration to hasten clinllenges of other nations for the Davis cup at the close of the war. Two Legs on Trophy. Those who are endeavoring to bring McLoughlin into the competition foresee in the event of his success another ten-year boom tor the American game. The famous Californian, whose thrilling style has accpmpllshed more for the game than any other player, already has two legs on the priceless cup. A victory this year would give it tn him as his personal victory. And it is known that he ia desirous of possessing it. McLoughlin enlisted in the navy at the station out on the Pacific coast last year. It is said, however, that he has had no active sea duty and is not likely to take any part in submarine chasing. He is reported to have been in Chicago since tlie beginning of the season on the- courts, although he did not participate In any of the tournament competitions there. PICK WINNERS ON "FORM."

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" New York.-The uncertainties of racing were never more apparent than at Aqueduct recently, when the consensus of opinion of the local tipsters picked each of the seven winners. Only two of the seven were favorites and a liberal price was quoted against all. Starting with a bet of $1 a parlay on the seven horsey selected would have netted a comfortable fortune. The total figures up to over ?100,000. The fieWs were large, the going heavy, which is supposed to make form uncertain, and there was an extra race on the card. Yet ail the horses that figured on "form" were successful which is a good indication that racing is honestly conducted. SUNDAY BALL IN NEWARK, N.J. New York. July 28.-An agreement was reached yesterday between the National and American leagues and the New International league under which New York teams of the major leagues will play Sunday games at the former Newark Federal league park at Harrison, N. J., beginning August 4. Major league games will be preceded by International league games played either by the Newark or Jersey City teams, the minor league clubs to got a share of the receipts. The major league clubs will make use of these Sunday dates to play games which will be moved forward under the shortened schedule. New York,-Charley Comiskey has purchased a few "bloomers" in his time as boss of the Chicago White Sox, but not many. Lena Blackburn, who came back to the Reds this season from the International league, was a $10,000 White Sox beauty who faded, and there have been others, but when Commy paid $7000 for Hapjjy Felsch he made no mistake. Now, through the working of war, Peisch has been lost to the Sox and his' loss Is severely felt, for the Milwaukee lad was tlie last real slugging outfielder Commy possessed. Collins, .Murphy and Lelbold. of the Sox's outer cordon of defense, are all good fielders, but none of this trio could wield a maul with Felsch and Joe Jackson, whose hitting in the days when they wore the Sox regalia upheld the weaker hitting of their brother^ fielders. Jackson's loss was bad enough, but when Felsch went, too, the Sox saw their last hope of another pennant fade. Felsch went to tlie Bos''from Milwaukee, of the American Association. He had graduated from the Milwaukee city league and from there went to Fond da, ,I-.ac tor a season. His hitting and ffelding soon won him recognition in the Wisconsin-Illinois league and the next year, 1913, found hiiii graduated to the Brewers late in the season. After a part of one season and the full season of 1914 with Milwaukee, Felsch went to the Sox and since has been a major leaguer of the first cla.ss. His home run in the first game-of the world's series last fall put Jazz and ginger into the White Sox and started them on the road to victory by giving them a fairly substantial lead against the men of McGraw. Though Felsch was not a particularly brilliant star in'the big. fracas last October, he played good ball. His value lies in the fact that he is consistently strong and timely hitter throughout the season. GREB BEAT M'GOORTY. Chicago. July 28.-Harry Greb, of the navy, wan awarded a decision on points ovqr Kddio .McGoorty, of the National army, at the end of their ten round boxing boutt^at Fort Slieri-dan late yesterday afternoon. By virtue of the victory Greb becomes middleweight champion of the army and navy. Greb carried the fighting to Mc-Goorty all the way. At the final boll Greb was apparently as fresh as when ho started, while McGoorty was plainly exhausted by his efforts in avoiding the navy fighter's swings, WliSTMINSTER WON GAME.
