Former Omahan Wins
1937 Twin City Title
Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. 23—
William R. Simms, formerly of
Omaha fought his way to a smash
ing victory in the. annual Twin City
tennis tournament staged here re
cently. Those who witnessed the
final match, played on the beauti
ful clay courts at the Minneapolis
Farado Grounds, acclaimed it to be
tho most thrillrg and evvenly
match seen hereabouts since the
Gray-Penn rivalry of a few years
WTion, in an early round, “Bill”
Simms camo from behind to eli
minate tho faworod Albert Allen,
2-6, 6-3, 6-2.. the odds were in his
favor that he would be the new
chap. His ability to draw the op
position out of position for a put
away shot gave him descisiv© vic
tory over tht veteran, M. Leo Bo.
(hanon, 6-2, 4-6, 6.2.
In the final round, it seemed cer.
, tain that “Corny” Moberly, of St.
Paul would carry the cup back to
St. Paul. After trailing 4-2 in the
first set, Simms came up to takt
the set 6-4. So it was through the
entire five sets—Simms always be
hind. With sets at two apiece and
Moberly out in front 4-1 in the
fifth and final set, Simms began the
come-back drive that netted the
1937 singles crown. Simms poured
tennis balls at Moberly from all
angeles of the court so fast that
what was formerly a classy looking
tennis looked like a simon-pure
ham—meaning Moberly. A fierce
overhead drive and a cannon-ball
service kept Moberly from winning
another game. Simms took the
match 6.4, 3-6, 6—4, 3—6, and

The Tokio Military
Machine Is Still Held
Up By the Chinese
Shanghai, Sept. 22 (Special to
CNA)—The Smo-JapanoM war
entered ita fourth month this week
with the battle line* around Shan
ghai and in North China practically
unchanged. I>eepita Japan’s techni
cal superiority, her only positive
successes thus far hare been the
capture of Nankow Pass and the
city of Kalgan in North China.
About Shanghai, tha invaders
have managed to secure only a
precarious foothold In the face of
stubborn and heroic reelsteaoe by
the Chinese defenders te the com
bined might of the Japanese army
navy and air forces. Several times
in the past fortnight, the Japanese
lines in Shanghai were broken at
various points by fierce Chinese
counter attacks, greatly endanger,
ing the invaders.
Battles developing about Pciping
and Tientsin have still not pro
duceed decisive result', despite 200
Japanese planes, armored car and
tank detachments and strong ccon.
centrations of artillery. In that
the Chinese forces were consider
ably stiffened this week by the
advance from the. interior of the
former Chinese Red Army, now
China’s new Eighth Route Army.
Veteran of hundreds of battles dur
ing the years that the* Nanking
government unsuccessfully tried to
exterminate the Chinese Soviet dis
tricts, these soldiers constitute a
major problem for the invaders.
So great is their prestige throu
ghout China, that news of their
advance to battle the Japanese has
electrified Shanghai. The moral
effect of their support of the Nan.
king government will be tremen
dous, in the opinion of observers
In joining with their comrades'
to resist Japanese aggressions, the.
Eighth Army was able to effect
the release of 75,000 Mohammedan
troops that Nanking had sent
against them before the nation was
united by the undeclared war of
the Japanese. These forces likewise
will be sent against the invaders.
The fighting in Shanghai reached
world war proportions this week
as the Japanese unleashed every
thing they had against the Chinese
defenders. At the end of the fourth
day of Japan’s major offensive, the
Chinese lines had been bent back
a little but were unbroken.

Armstrong Kayoes
De Foe In Fourth
New York, Sept. 20 (INP)—
Homicidal Henry Armstrong had a
ten minute workout at Madison
Square Garden last Thursday night
and in that short time absolutely
pulverized Johnny DeFoe. The in
evitable knockout came in 1:12 ot
the tthround, after Armstrong had
floored DeFoe eight times. On Us
eighth fall Johnny McAroy referee,
mercifully waved the great Negro
assault and battery expert away.
Armstrong battered the hapless
De Fee from the first second, and
the only rest Johnny got waa when
he hung on for dear life, practically
defying the referee to pry him off.

The two defenders are being tried

They are being tried by an all

drawn and was about to be sworn

on both sides were equal, what
would be your verdict?” Without!
a moment’s hesitation he replied |
“guilty.’ The judge then explained
that the defents were to be given
the benefit of doubt under the law.
