WIMBLEDON, England, July 5-
Bill Tilden won the British tennis
singles championship today for the
first time since 1921, defeating his
sensational young countryman,
Wilmer Allison in the final in three
The scores were 6-3, 9-7, 6-4.
Mrs. Helen Wills Moody and Miss
Elizabeth Ryan today captured the
women's doubles in the Wimbledon
championships, defeating Sarah
Palfrey of Boston and Edith Cross
of San Francisco, 6-2, 9-7.
Mrs. Moody and Miss Ryan now
are supreme as a doubles team,
having won the French champion-
ship a few weeks ago as well as
taking the Wimbledon crown to-
The sensational play of little
Sarah Palfrey in a losing cause,
especially during the thrilling sec-
ond set, captured the imagination
of the big gallery which cheered
her every shot. In general the
crowd seemed to be on the side of
the youngsters although it was
fairly clear from the outset that
they were doomed to defeat.
The king, queen and Prince
George arrived to see the all-Amer-
ican final between Wilmer Allison
and Bill Tilden for the singles
championship. The players were
practicing as the royal personages
entered and they stood at attention
on the court as the monarch was
seated in the royal box. The
crowds, also standing, applauded.

sentation will bring a biting satire*
of middle-class life in the suburbs;
of New York. "Close Harmony"
has been hailed by critics as the
greatest play of its kind, meeting
with a critical success in New York.
The play had a long successful run
in Chicago under the name of "The
Lady Next Door," and was well re-
ceived in Detroit as "Next Door."
The original production was
mounted by Arthur Hopkins with
James Spotswood, the star of "Ex-
cess Baggage," and Wanda Lyon in
the leading roles.
Benchley Asks Revival
There have been many attempts
on the part of New York critics,
especially Robert Benchley, to en-
courage a revival of "Close Harmo-
Elmer Rice, who collaborated
with Dorothy Parker in the writing
of this play, is also the author of
"Street Scene," last year's Pulit-
zer prize play, "On Trial," Cock
Robin," in which he collaborated
with Philip Barry, and "See Naples
and Die," in which Claudette Col-
bert played the lead. Dorothy Par-
ker is known as the writer of sev-
eral books of verse, "Enough Rope,"
"Sunset Gun," and as a former dra-
matic critic on the staff of "Van-
ity Fair." She is one of the fore-
most contemporary humorists,
along with Ring Lardner.
In "Close Harmony," Mr. Rice de-
veloped the dramatic technique
while Miss Parker is responsible for
the keen satire.

Prof. Chester M. Wallace of the
Carnegie Institute of Technology,
and one of the foremost directors
of amateur productions in the
country, is in charge of the pre-

fessor Wallace stated yesterday
that as a result of the wide range
of character types found in the
Play Production department it has
been possible to make an excep-
tionally accurate casting of the

turn to earth as harrowing as the
three weeks they spent in the airj

The two brothers, John and Ken-I
neth, who piloted the "City of Chi-
cago" to a new world's record by a
margin of 133 hours over that of'

The end of the Hunter boys' epic
flight came at 5:21 1-2 p. m. c. s. t.,
on the Fourth of July owing to the
clogging of an oil filter and a leak
in the oil guage line. This defect
caused hot oil to spurt over the
flyers and indicated quick failure
of the steel-hearted engine that
had carried them for weary days
So the Illinois aviators who had
spent many days of their life like
moles in mines to earn the plane
with which they shamed the flying
power of birds settled to earth as'
the motor began to heat for lack of
oil. There was not only no panic
in the landing, but even strategy,
as John Hunter, at the controls,
taxied about the crowded fields tol

grimy plane right into its hangar.
Caught on the shoulders of ad-
miring friends, the aviators were
taken to a secluded room for pic-,

ORANGE, Va., July 5- In the
oolness of his mountain lodge,
resident Hoover today planned the
ourse of the administration for the
pecial session of the senate which
onvenes Monday to consider the

With Walter Newton, his secre-
ary for political affairs, Senator
AcNary, of Oregon, the assistant
majority leader, and Sen. Fess of

raft of the message he will send to
he Senate Monday or Tuesday.
Tomorrow he will have the op-
)ortunity to discuss the controver-
y that has centered recently upon
he continuation of Claudius S.
Huston as chairman of the Repub-
ican national committee.
Fess May Succeed.
Sen. Fess has been prominently
nentioned as a successor to Chair-
man Huston. Sen. McNary and his
wife arrived today and early to-
norrow Sen. Watson of Indiana,
the Republican leader and Sen.
Walcott, Rep., Conn., are expected
to join the small party of intimate
friends who accompanied the pres-
ident to camp.
The chairmanship problem has
been uppermost in speculation for
the last several days. Early this
week, aides of the president talked
with Chairman Huston over the
long distance telephone. On the
same day Huston issued a notice
postponing from Monday to Thurs-
day the meeting of the executive
committee of the party which is
expected to take up the question of
the future control over the party

either went horse back riding or

opening of Congress. It was said

Senator Thomas Heflin's indepen-

definite form today with his align-

ENLISTS 42 INQUALIFYING
Golf is not the infant pastime
that some people think it. Even
the gods of the ancients had their
fling at the game. Witness, for in-
stance, the moan of the latin sages:'
"Di nos quasi pilas homines hab-
ent," of which, as everyone can see,
the obvious translation is: "The
gods mashie us around as if we were
kroflites." Then there are the nu-'
merous references in the works of
Shakespeare, characteristic of
