final gamea were ail played Saturday with
W. G. Bayea of Toledo. Ia.. aUU tha
champion In alnglae. Colllna and Peter of
Chicago are the new champion In double
and Art Sorlbnar of Omaha won tha double
honor of winning the eotvaolatlon alnglea
while he and Oall Martin of Omaha won
the conaolatlon doublea. '
The weather waa absolutely perfect all
week for both player and spectators and
the claa of tenni was the highest of any
rver seen In Omaha. Collins, the fourth
beat player In tha United Btates, honored
tha tournament with hla preseno In pref
erence to going to Newport where the
National tournament was held.
Colllna was really the feature of the
week's play. ' All were anxloua to aea In
action the man who has been able to hold
the title of western champion for the lest
eight years In spit of all opposition. He
waa defeated by Sanderson Wednesday
afternoon In the fourth round of the cham
pionship flight, but the majority of the
gallery would wager their last penny San
derson could not do It again.- Colllna re
trieved himself, however, tha next day by
winning In a special match from Cham
pion Hayes for a beautiful cup offered by
Nets. U. Updike. Sanderson waa defeated
by Oilman and Oilman by Hayes, which.
by comparative score, make a good show
ing for Collins, but the fact remains .never
theless that Sanderson won the match when
It waa played In spite of all the dope books,
The crowd at the matchea Saturday
afternoon waa one of the largest and most
repreeentatlve ever gathered In Omaha for
a similar event. Tenni ean be watched
by a gallery In the shade, while the gal

A pretty light waa presented at the Field
club. The porches were crowded to over.

men were on the 'roof, rowa of seata were
placed around the courts when the doubles
were played and the back lawn
crowded with automobiles filled with people
watching the match.
Tha week'a entertainment was ended In
a whirlwind of pleasure. The visiting ten
nis men were whirled away to other clubs
for dinners as aoon as the games were
over, after which all returned to tha Field
club where a genial hop was given. Over

Deablea tha Featara.
Mora Interest seemed to attach to the
match In doubles between Collins and
Peter of Chicago and Sanderaon and
Fletcher of . Galesburg. . It wa prac lcally
conceded that Haye would beat Oilman
In the single but In th doublea It was a
different story. . Many espected the Oalea

Hayes had won his mstch and was called
upon t umpire tha game In doublea and
proved a splendid umpire, calling the point
so all could hear. His linesmen were

of volleying It atralajht baok on the chance
of the other man putting the ball out of

at paaaing. Fletcher moved over conald
arable ground and covered the courta In a
manner almllar to Hayee. Tha Chicago
team tried bard to make It firtt aerve
count and often aucceeded. Thla first ball
waa a hard one to put baek, aa the aervea
