The scores were 4-6, 0-2. 6-0. The victory ol Miss Bjurstedt marks the first time in the history of the championship that the title has gone to a foreign player. It was the second national title for the Norweg- ian for she won the indoor tennis .championship early in the year, short- ly after her arrival In this country. Her defeated opponent, who was Hotchkiss of Barkeley, Cal., be- fore her marriage, held the national title three times, having won it in 1909, 1910 and 1911. The champion- .shlp was won last year by Miss Mary of Los Angeles, who did not come east to defend her title. In thp tournament Miss Bjurstedt jepresented the West Side Tennis club ,bf New York; therefore, the Wissa- liicken at' Jsast, docs not leave .the "doited States, Loses in Doubles After winning premier honors in Miss Bjurstedt paired with Irving C. Wright of Boston essayed to the national championship in dou- bles, but went down to defeat before Wightman and Harry C. John- 'sou, also of Boston, 6-0, 6-1. There were many predictions that 'Mrs. Wlghtinan's experience and gen- .eralship would wia her the singles -championship again when the two ex- perts faced each other before several thousand persons. Alter the first few- games of the opening set, in which Miss Bjurstedt was visibly nervous and unable to do herself justice, there was no doubting her superiority. improve! as'Match Progresses lEarty in the match she was unable lo get the right length on her returns, so many-of'them went out of court and a number of others into the net. When once she warmed to her work, however, she displayed such brilliant tennis that for the most part she left Mrs. Wightman flat-footed. In the third set, when Mrs. Wightman was feeling the effects of the previous hard-fought sets, the young Norwegian girl's splendid physical condition en- abled her to grow stronger and strong- er, whfie Mrs. Wighman grew more weary. First Set Is Cloie Mrs. Wight-man's! court craft very much in evidence in the first set and again she carried the play to Miss Bjurstedt. That the set. was ex- ceptionally well contested la proven by the point for Mrs. Wight- man and 36 for Miss Bjuratedt. In the second and third sets Miss Bjur- stedt played the side lines with suc- cess that was nothing short of re- markable, Always she played the ball an inch or two inside, usually finding 'Wightman far away, with not a .chance to make the "get." With the Bcore four games to one against her in the second set, Mrs. Wighman made a gallant, but despairing effort to cap- ture the match. The seven-minute rest between the second and third sets did not revive Mrs. Wighman's falling energy, for Miss Bjurstodt took the decider without the loss of a game. The Summary'' First set: San Francisco, Ca1., June 12.

The race was worth to the winner, and he paid S4.80 for a tic- ket in the parl-mutuels betting. The day was fair, the track was fist, and the crowd was probably the largest Umt ever wended its way- through the 'Latonia gates.

Tetan, an out- sider in the betting, was reported to have been withdrawn early In the day, but Owner W Perkins decided to start him at the last moment, and the horse paid for a ticket to place and 18 40 for a J2 ticket for show.
