LATEST NEWS WOMEN TENNIS STARS From America Will Invade England; i It is Said New York, OcL was news in tennis circles here today that Miss Mayw. and Miss Hazel Hotchkiss are planning a .trip to Europe this win- ter for the purpose of playing in some ..of: the .big .tournaments on covereo courts. on .the continent and in Bug. land. Miss Hotchkiss is the 'present American champion at women's sin- gles. She has never been abroad, though more than once it has been re- ported that she intended to try for the women's singles at Wimbledom. Miss Sutton is ex-American and ex-English champion and is remarkable as the on- ly American 'to score -at Wimbledon. When she played in England a few years ago she created a great sensa-. tion and showed that she was in f class by herself. If the two California girls make the journey some excellent play is promised, as England no-rc boasts of an exceptionally fine player in Mrs. Lambert Chambers. This sea- son .she-went through, without-a single defeat. YOUNG CORBETT BEATEN; COULD NOT "COME BACK'1 Former Lightweight Champion Gets Severe Walloping in Bout With Willie Beecher New York, Oct Corbett. once the first of lightweights, proved here again when he met Willie Beech- er that he was another of the cham- pions who could not come back. The bout was stopped by the referee in the middle of the fourth round aften he had been knocked down twice, and was reeling blindly around the ring, f target for uppercuts and hooks to his face. This was the second time that young Corbett tried to "come back." He es- sayed the feat about a year ago auc met defeat then, although not such s decisive drubbing as he got at the; hands of Willie Beecher. QUEEN OF THE GOLF LINKS Miss Campbell Only One of Her Sex to Hold Title Two Years Miss Dorothy Campbell, of the Ham- ilton club, Canada, who won the wo- men's TJ. S. A. golf championship last week for the second 'time, was. the on- ly champion of either the National cu "Western Golf'associations who had the ability to "come back." New hands closed on all.the other tides and aev. faces wore the smile of victory. The first champion to fall by the way side was Professional George Sar- gent, when Aiex. Smith won the na- tional open honors. Following 'this' "Chick" Evans was shuffled into the discard when Mason Phelps him in the finalmatchsfor the westei-r amateur championship at Minneapolis and. Robert Gardner went so far as tc fail to" qualify for match play at Brook- line for the national amateur title which, was won by W. C. Fownes, jr Evans was the only one-of the I90f champions who had balm poured or his wounded feelings, as he -took the western open title at Beverly, the firs amateur golfer who had ever succeed- ed to an open championship in a big fast field. .Willie -Anderson was the former title holder, and he did not de fend. Chicago Hard Hit Albert Seckel failed in the easterr intercollegiate play, although a fellov townsman took it, Robert Hunter be- ing returned victorious in the finaj match, When one comes to think ii over, it will be seen .that Chicagoanr held all the big amateur titles among the men players last year, but this' year Is without 'the national, but hat to make up "for- it the western open. Among the the ev- ent aside from the national was th1 western, which title- went-from Mist Vida Llewellyn to Mrs. Thurston Har ris of Westward Ho. Mrs. 'Harris al so won the" city championship, whict she had held in 1909. The women's national play markeo the close of the season, so far as big tournaments were and i- was held -later than usual this year. The close of the local season is here also, as there are very few events o' any consequenefe yet to be played, al though-there are a few minor club ev ents or special tournaments to be fin- ished. Left-Handed Tourney Probably the. feature of the "declin ing days of the season" will be the southpaw tournament at Midlothian Mich., this week. It has grown in'tc such popularity that left-handed play ers come from all parts of the countr to although the play is strict ly novel and not straight golf.
