Succumbing to the superior playing of
visitors, Omaha's lait two represents
tires In the national clay court tourna
ment were Thursday eliminated In the
race for the national champlonahlp. Cub
Potter was eaiiy pluoklngs for Fred Har
ris and Russell Larmon was no match
for Johnny Strachan.
Russell Larmon played an excellent
game of tennis against the western chain
jilon, considering his youth and Inexperi
ence. Larrrion. although tie only took
two games, made the California lad tight
for every point and on several occasions
placed the ball so accurately that
Btrachan was unable to return. Larmon
was able to return his adversary's sorvlco
at all times and dould make creditable
roturn or his lswfords, but he lacked the
science that yrara of experience against
such men as MoLaUghlln and Johnson
has given to Strachan and he frequently
allowed Strachan to trick him out of
position for the subsequent strokes
Potter could do absolutely nothing with
Harris' vicious smashes and lost easily.
6-1, 6-J. At no time in the matoh did
the Vermont man have to extend himself
to beat the Omaha man. As the match
progressed the hopelessness of winning
became more apparent and Potter did
not put up Uie fight he did In the 'earner"
Heat Match of All.
The best match of the afternoon was
the match between Armstrong and Hall
Armstrong beat Hall last year In the
clay court tournament at Pittsburgh and
the easterner was determined to have .hi
revenge this year. Halt has Improved his
game, while Armstrong Is much weaker
than he was last year. Itali gqt the
Jump on the Minnesota player and took
the first set, ,8-2, before Armstrong could
Armstrong got down to work In the seo
ond set and by clever strategy In forolng
Hall out, of position won tho set, 0-S.'
Hall profited by his mistakes In the sec
ond set and. playing strictly a not game,
did not permit Armstrong to force him
out of position. With Hall smashing
everything that he would deliver and re
covering Instantly. Armstrong was Un
able to make any headway. He lost the
third set quickly, (1-2.
Griffin Uonta Jones.
Clarence Griffin handily bsat Drum
mond Jones, the Ht. Louis player, 4-2,
-2. Jones, with his - slow, easy-going
style of play, could not compete against
the westerner's fast smashing game.
Griffin took the first two sets, but Jones
with his careful placing mado him work
for, the majority of the points. Jones Is
unusually wild and erratic this year. Be
fore Jonea has always been able to knock
the bail into the corners of the court at
will, but this year he continually would
make return that"feilj; outside' 'pre
scribed i boundary.
Final Uuntitrs Today.
Btrachan and Qrlffln will play Hall
and Harris In (ho final round of the dou
bles today by virtue of the double vlo
tory of yesterday over Branson and
Young and Hoorr and Jones, respectively,
The tall larihy Dakota players made the
California couple hustle, but Harris and
Hall had little difficulty with; Hoerr and
Qrlffln was 'decidedly off his game In
the doubles mutch and would repeatedly
drive the ball outside or Into the not on
returns. Whenever he tried close place
ment at the sides or corners of the court
the ball was sure to fall Just outside the
line. Btrachan made up for his partner's
deficiency by Wonderful placement and
his terrific lawfords. Branson and Young
played a game worthy of the name, and
wo result was in doubt until the third
let was well under way.
Hoerr and Jonea appeared to be slightly
disturbed by some Invisible Jinx. Time
and again when a slow ball would be de
livered they would attempt smashes, but
tho Tall would always slip off the racquet
In tho wrong manner and fall into the net
or go outside. At every turn the eastern
team got the break in the luck. When
ever the ball was close to the tine the
decision was always In favor of Hall and
Harris played a wonderful net game.
It was seemingly impossible to get the
ball past him. no matter how hard It
-woe hit or how -far to one ',de. Hall
played a better back court game than
Harris and covered the entire court on
lobs and slow higher returns.
The match between. Kennedy nud Wad
den and Qrlffen and Strachan on the- ad
joining court was to much for the mixed
team to overcome. Hoerr and Jonea were
not even pushed to win.
Halt and Harris, the eastern team, took
Beyer and Sweet from Iowa into camp
so easily that they played each other in
a singles match to, make up for the
deficiency In exercise. Beyer and' Sweet
tr not as active as their opponents
tmd could not chase after bails shot to
crrn side without wearing themselves out,
Several matches In the consolations,
bdth singles and doubles, were played.
Omaha players are monopolising those
two eventa, Sweet of Dea Moines being
the only visiting player remaining.
Today tnir finals In the doubles will be
played and aleo the. semi-finals In the
singles. Hall and Harfhr will play Grif
fin and Strachan In the doubles. and Hall
will play Griffin and Harris will play
otracnan in uie semi-finals of the singles.
