TL.DEN TAKES TENNIS
TILT FROM_ LA COSTE
(By Associated Press)
AUTEUIL, France, July 27.-The
United States and France stood even
up with one match apiece today at
the end of the first day's play in the
Davis Cup challenge round in which
France is defending the famous tennis
trophy. Big Bill Tilden beat La
Coste while John Hennessey went
down to defeat before Henri Cochet.
Tilden played much the best ten-
nis of the day in taking the measure
of his old rival in the opening match
by scores of 1-6, 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 and
is now a favorite - to defeat Cochet
Sunday. The, American chance of
winning back the Davis Cup appears
somewhat brighter as a result of to-
day's matches. If the United States
and Tilden can come through against

e of the people is the true purpose
of government," he continued,
"Throughout his career he has
fought against all those interests that
he believed injurious to the people
of his state."
Points To Progress
The senator began nis address by
pointing to the progress that has been
effected in the last fifty years. "What
then can we expect of the next fifty
years," he asked, "if not progress of
even greater proportions. But with
all this advancement, it is only nat-
ural to ask is the government keep-
ing pace, is it progressing as rapidly,
We pay eleven billion dollars in
taxes in this country every year, or
about one-eighth of our total income.
Therefore taxation should be of
primary interest to every citizen, and'
he should insist upon having a ,gov-
ernment that was worth the cost."
"Government of the proper sort
should benefit all classes," he con-
tinued. However, the Republican
party seems to have held to a policy
that did not benefit all classes. It
llas maintained protective tariffs,
which are economically unsound, but
it refuses to protect the farmer with
measures because they are econom-
ically unsound. I myself think the
McNary-Haugen bill economically .un-
sound, but if it is any more gnsound
than protective tariff, I'll have to be
shown how," the speaker exclaimed.
In speaking of the attitude of his
party toward prohibition, Senator
Capeland said, "l. Smith proposes to
find out what Is intoxicating, and
then, if possible under the eighteenth
amendment, to raise the alcohol per-
centage of the present to the limit."
The speaker also declared himself
against the St. Lawrence waterway
project, stating that it would bene-
fit Canada and European nations
much more than it would our own
country.
Says South For Smith
Toward the conclusion of his talk,
the speaker stated that Al. Smith
would not only carry his own state
by a majority of 500,000, but would
also get the votes of Delaware, Rhode
Island, Massachussetts, and New
Jersey. "And don't worry about the
"solid South," he said. "It is still
solid for Smith."
Preceding the speech by Senator
Copeland, Mrs. W. H. Kobe of De-
troit gave a short talk in which she
called the women voters of Washten-

they must organize and organized

NEW YORK, July 27.-Gleams of

of them a former Presidential nom-

Two of them, Governor Albert C.

the disposal of the National Com-

American market and sent prices
soaring. Similar projects were in-

According to' company officials, the
Ford land already has a number of
native rubber trees growing on it and
has been found by experts admirably
suited for intensive cultivation.
The Lake Farge left Detroit July
