Ben Smith Hurls Buffaloes to 8-4 Victory Over St. Joseph in Second Game
iThousaiids of Spectators, Stunned at Dramatic Collapse
Of French Tennis Wizard,Stand Speechless as European
Champion Is Assisted Off Courts Crying and Coughing
Forest Hills. N. Y., Aug. 16. Mile. Suzanne Lenglen defaulted to Mrs. Molla Bjur
stedt Mallory, United States champion, in their match today in the Women's National
Tennis 'championship after Mrs. Mallory had won the first set, 6-2.
At the close of the first game of the second set Mile. Lenglen was seized with a vio
lent fit of coughing and walking over to a chair alongside the referee's stand announced
her default to Mrs. Mallory. She was assisted off the courts crying and coughing while
the 8,000 spectators, stunned at the dramatic collapse of the famous French champion,
The physical collapse of Mile,
holder of the world women s tennis cnampionsnip, lurnisnea a dramatic
climax to the second round of the tournament on the courts of the West
Side Tennis club here today. ,
The French racquet wizard who arrived in this country last Saturday
heralded as the greatest exponent of the court game in the feminine
domain, after being decisively defeated in her opening match against
Mrs. Molla Bjur,stedt Mallory, collapsed in a chair alongside the referee's
Mile. Lenglen s sudden capitula-W-
tion to a renewal of her attack ot
bronchitis and the powerful and ag
gressive play of Mrs. Mallory left a
gallery of some 8,000 spectators
stunned into absolute silence by the
tragedy which took place on the
green-turfed enclosure at their feet.
The girl from Faris was undoubt
edly the magnet which drew the ma
jority of the spectators to the Forest
Hills grounds. For several years
followers of tennis the world over
have been enthralled by tales of the
marvelous play of the French woman.
' Visitors to the English courts at
"Wimbledon, St. Cloud, near Faris.
the Rivera and other continental
tennis centers have returned to
America with tales of the wonderful
speed, stroking and almost mechani
cal accuracy in placing possessed by
Mile. Lenglen. In her own country
she was and is as great a popular
idol as Georges. Carpenticr.
Today she fell from the pedestal
of her particular game in a far more
dramatic and decisive manner, per
haps, than did Carpentier on July 2.
Notwithstanding the known lack of
practice due to her arrival in this
country as late as Saturday, Suzanne
was generally expected to give Mrs.
Mallory a terrific battle with the
odds in favor of victory due to her
tournament record .at Wimbledon
earlier in the summer.

WHEN William H. Massey
arrived in this world some
26 years ago, his parents al
ready had his future planned. He
should go to college and prepare to
be a preacher or a college professor.
His mother believed that the min
istry offered an ideal field for her
talented son, but father thought that
the calling of a college professor
was even more dignified.
But all their planning went for
naught. Fate had carved a different
future. It so willed that he should
be a base ball player.
And base ball player he is today
and a fairly good one.
All of his early training may not
have been in vain, however, for Mas

studying. He loves the masterpieces

Plans for the National Horseshoe
Pitchers' tournament for the cham
pionship of the world and the list of
prizes for the meet to be held at the
Minnesota state fair, September 7,
8 and 9, are announced by B. G.
Leighton of this city, national presi
dent. The tournament is under the
auspices of the National Minnesota
Horseshoe Pitchers' associations.
Prizes totaling approximately
$5,000 will be distributed to the win
ners in the form of trophies and
cash. In the men's tournament the
total is expected to reach about
$3,500, while $1,500 will be expended
for trophies, and prizes for the vic
tors in the women's tourney.
First prize, which will go to the
national champion, will be more than
$500 in cash and trophies valued at
several hundred dollars. Fifteen
other awards will be made in the
men's event and eight of the highest
women pitchers will receive gifts.
Players will be divided into groups
cf eight, and each man in each group
will match his skill against each other
man in that group in one game, which
will make a total of seven 50-point
games. Two or three of the highest
men jn each group will then draw
places for another group of eight
players and this process will be re
peated until there are but 16 players
left. Every one of the 16 will receive
Elimination contests then will be
staged between these 16 until the
championship is won. Number of
games won and lost will decide the
victor, and not the number of
Men will play 50-point games on
40-foot courts while the women
will heave at 30-foot distance pegs
in 21-point games.
Doubtful If French Champion
Will Return to Fight Gibbons
By FRANKE G. MENKE.
It's doubtful if Georges Carpentier ever will come back to these parts
to do battle with Tomasco Gibbons, slugging party of the first part from
St. Paul. There's a reason one beyond the story of a fractured bone in
the right hand, "which will not heal."
At the time of his marriage the Frenchman is reported to have prom
ised his bride that the tussle with Jack Dempsey, "win, lose or draw,"
would be the last of his career. This pleased Mrs. Carpentier immensely,
because, even though she thinks Georges is the greatest mitt whirler in
the world, she is opposed to fighting. She cannot get it out of her mind
that the game is somewhat brutal and fraught with the peril of permanent
harm to each and eery combatant including her husband.
Those who profess to know the
"inside and the outside" insist that
Carpentier's wife was considerably
displeased with the news' that he
planned to return to America in the
fall and attempt to take a few pot
shots at the Gibbons boy. She is
said to have argued rather vehement
ly against it and to have reminded
Georges of his promise that the
Dempsey thing was to be the fare
well. Too Much Money Now.
It is a well established fact that
Carpentier cannot gain much more
lucre and a possible besting by
taking on Gibbons. He now holds
the light heavyweight championship
of the world and by winning from
Gibbons he could add no new crown
to his diadem. If Gibbons whipped
him it would take much prestige
from the Frenchman, whcris if he

become a college professor, just as
"Dad" would have?

Besides play in the national
tournament, a meeting will be held
by members of the National Horse
shoe Pitchers' association. National
League of Horse and Quoit Pitchers'
association, and National Horse
shoe Pitchers of America associa
tion, to iron out the many differ
ences existing between the three or
ganizations, Mr. Leighton declared.
Each of the three organizations has
at certain times put forth its claim
as the national association recog
nized in America, but because the
National Horseshoe Pitchers' asso
ciation has the most affiliated
leagues, the other two groups have
agreed to accept it as the national
recognized body, according to
Affiliated associations of the Na

Timekeeper in Famous
Bare-Fisted Fight Dies
New Orleans, La., Aug. 16.
Alexander Brewster, time keeper in
the famous bare fisted fight between
Sullivan and Kilrain, and prominent
ly identified with many of the sport
ing events of the past, died yester
day at the age of 89.
won from Gibbons he wouldn't gain
much as far as a return match with
Dempsey is concerned. For no
matter what Carpentier does in the
future he will always be considered
as outclassed by the "Utah Mauler."
Carpenticr is quite comfortably
fixed as far as money is concerned.
Therefore he is in the position of
gaining nothing but money for fight
ing Gibbons and he has auout as
much money as he will be able to
spend. By fighting he may lose,
surrender prestige and presumably
incur the displeasure of his wife.
So, it would seem that the story
that Carpentier cannot keep his en
gagement with Gibbons on the
originally scheduled date "because of
a bad hand" perhaps is a lead-up to
a full cancellation of the notch and
the complete retirement of Georges
Carpentier from ring warfare in
America at least.

Italian will all talk on peace at same
time. As this is peaceful clinic,
Washington police have been ordered
not to use riot clubs.
Everybody but diplomats knows
that war is over. Three years ago
kaiser beat his arms into plowshares

Kaiser will not be present at peace

Peace will settle silently over con

Japanese statesman will spill peace
