,N the hard Court championship at Bournemouth there were some who ticipatel Austin winning. others who a nut t1t4I 1lI their conviction that erry was the greater match player. The weather was perfee.t, but the court was very slow and dead. It was a strange match. First set to Amain at 6-0 with Perry Linable to find his touch. all the eatacetag and volleying by Austin, and Perry maintaining a dignified aspect of inlfferenCe. Austin was playing flawless .r.lis, hut the knowing ones just mured "wait .and See. In the next, set y won at 6-4. the third set Arastin played great is, he attacked consistently, ran more than his opponent (he paid tally in full for running, later!) ewed a beautiful backhand, in er won points with an acute ,,d cross-court return which hit the CI: the end of that set came on a 1. , perfect lob by Austin which Perry saw t fall into court While he mournfully 1: fall his head. AUSTIN'S CRAMP The fourth tat showed Austin leading t' 2-1, and ene noted that Austin had at last begun to make mistabes and he was threatened with cramp. It was Perry's set at 6-2. Perry's speed in getting, drop-shots was astonishing. Ile would look to be late, yet he riever was. The end of that set tette a shot to the backhand corner, to 41hich Auelin aid not move.
Teo sets all. The fight was on, but what of Austin's cramp? In the second game Austin dropped his -racket and made a. despairing gesture with both arms, for he could not move. Perry rushed to his aid, so did others; he was rubbed, and a chair was brought. The rule about play being continuous was broken, but never mind! Austin reearned after a preliminary stamp along the baseline.
It was useless, the rest of that set was a procession, Perry returned the bale Austin missed il. Fifth set: 6-0 and cliampionship for fourth successive year to Perry. who received the verdict with mournful head-shake, while Austin flung a disgusted racket to the side canvas. Four years since his last attack of cramp. Bad luck on Austin; on Perry also, whose victory became a hollow one.
Miss Stammers beat Miss Scriven 6-2. 6-2 for the women's title., the WitintlY being on her game, the loser completely "off."
There was Ito women's doubles final and no mixed doubles, as Miss Dearman (in both) was down with a sharp attack of 'Liu.
The man's doubles went in New Zeala.nd in Malfroy and Stedman, who heat South Africa. (Farquharson and Kirby) in hollow fasbion 6-3, 6-2, 6-1, the losers, especially Kerby, being very poor.
LANVSON ern-LE, the :A me.rimn bolder of the British Amateur Championship. is here. Americans think highly of his chances. Tommy Armour, the Scottish-born American golfer, describes Lawson Little as a "cinch for amateur and open championship,' and adds, convincingly, or otherwise, that 'I3obby Jones thinks the same.'
The new English champion is John Woollaire of Hooton. Cheshire, winner for the second time in three years, who beat Eric Fiddia.r. in the final at Stourbridge by 2 and 1. He is a great iron player and now his driving a.nd putting are nearer to the standard of his irons, but not yet as high Fiddian is liable to break down over a shot, because he lurches with his body during the stroke. Play was over thirty-six holes, and the first round showed astonishing figures for chain Continued from orevtous corumn pions. Nathan's score was 81 and Woollate's score was 73 for 18 _holes and two sixes). However, in the second round lite wind had dropped and Woollam's score was 73 for 18 holes and Fiddian'e 77.
Cyril Tolley had started favourite and be began impressively. Ile had lost two stone arid was no longer the ponderous figure of late years (he is now thirty-nine). Die driving wa.e enormous but he was beaten by Fiddian.
For the comfort of short drivere Tolley did not win after till! It is the approach and putt that count, the short game and the man who is good there can afford to praise wholeheartedly those raking drives which leave hini so far behind. The last stroke it is that counts, and the man to fear is he who regards his putter as a. friend rather than a treacherous acquaintance,
A Tough "Blue"
G. KINGSFORD, this year's No. 5 • in the Cambridge boat., is tough. In October, 1733, when rowing 8 in thePembroke college eight, he vats strork in the back by the bow of Third Trinity eight 4. The shock of the collision threw him ento the air, and then into the river. The forepart of the Trinity boat, protective ball and ail, was broken. Mr. Kingsford then walked to his rooms with some slight assistance, and examination only showed a clean-cut wound lein. long.
Three days afterwards an X-ray examination showed that the last rib on his right side was dislocated and the bony protuberences of three of the lower vertebrae fractured. Three lb. Copper nails and a piece of metal binding (as used in boat building) were found lying alongside one of the vertebrae. When these were removed e, piece of wood alin. long was also found.
