Budge Defeats
German; Puts
U.S. In Finals
Von Cramm Loses Great
Battle As Henkel Downs

Zone Final Thriller

Nation Pays Tribute To Senator Robinson At Funeral Rites

WIMBLEDON, Eng., July 20.-(3)I
--Don Budge, leanest and bravest of
America's tennis greats, climbed back
from apparently irretrievable defeat
on Wimbledon's center court today,
defeated the gallant Teuton Baron.
Gottfried Von Cramm, in five sets
and gave the United States a drama-
tic 3-2 victory over Germany in the
Davis Cup interzone finals.
With Budge's sensational triumph
the United States qualified to face
Great Britain's weakened cup-hold-
ing forces in the challenge round
starting Saturday. And unless the
experts are all wrong, the Americans
should score decisively over the Brit-
ish and take the cup back to the
United States for the first time since
it was lost to the French at German-
town in 1927.
5,000 Cheer Thriller
There may have been more stirring
Davis Cup matches in the past than
the duel Budge and Von Cramm
fought today butrnobody could re-
member them.
Reaching the very pinnacle of his
form, yet beaten in the first two sets
by the inspired German, Budge sim-
ply conjured the next threesets out
of the hat and left the famed court
with the crowd of 5,000 shouting
his name and cheering just as loudly
for the handsome, lion-hearted lad
he defeated.
Trailing 2-1 at the start of the
final day's play, Germany drew level
at 2-2 when Henrich Henkel trounced
Bryan M. (Bitsy) Grant of Atlanta
in the opening singles duel, 7-5, 2-6,
6-3, 6-4.
So the outcome of the series rested
with Budge and Von Cramm and
when the Oakland, Calif., red-head
finally whipped the titled Teuton
after a 2/2 hour struggle, 6-8, 5-7,
6-4, 6-2, 8-6 there were some strange
scenes among the ivy and geraniums
of this famous court.
Big Bill Tilden In Crowd
In the first row, Suzanne Lenglen,
five times winner of the Wimbledon
women's championship, stood for ten
minutes applauding even after the
two rivalsahad disappeared.aFarther
back, Big Bill Tilden who has been
saying that the German was the best
amateur in the world, all but cried
when the fair-haired lad was beaten.
And in the press box, silent old
gentlemen who have come to expect
brilliance after watching such stars
as Tilden, Ellsworth Vines, Henri
Cochet, and Fred Perry, stood up in
their seats and pounded their hands
raw at the sparkling exhibition Budge
and Von Cramm put up.
Budge and Von Cramm hardly had
left the court before the experts began
speculating on what chances there
were of Captain Walter L. Pate
changing the American lineups before
tackling the British.
There is no doubt, of course, that
Budge will handle two singles matches
and the doubles along with blond
3ene Mako of Los Angeles. But it
appeared likely that Grant would
field the second singles assignment
o Frankie Parker, of Milwaukee.
Grant Is Downhearted
Grant, as a matter of fact, was so
heart-broken over losing both his
singles matches against Germany,
that he declared he was through with
cup competition and wouldn't play
against Great Britain even if chosen.
"I turned yellow," he saidrbitterly,
"and almost lost the cup for us. A
guy who hasn't any more guts than I
have ought to quit for good. Think
how I feel quitting like that and then
watching Don fight his heart out to
win. I shook like a leaf all through
my match with Henkel."
All attempts at consoling the tiny
Atlantan failed. '
Even if Grant, when he has had
time to get over his disappointment,
should reconsider his decision about
retiring from cup competition, some
critics thought it would be good pol-
icy for Pate to switch to Parker. The
Milwaukee youngster played brilliant-
ly in the all-England championships,
reaching the semi-finals before bow-
ing to Budge who then went on to
whip Von Cramm in straight sets for
the title. Parker, as a matter of fact,

won one set from Budge, the only one
the Californian had lost during his
British campaign this year until to-
day.
British Team Decided
The British team is definitely set-.
tled with Henry Wilfred (Bunny)
Austin and young Charles Hare han-
dling the singles and C. R. D. Tuckey
and Frank H. D. Wilde playing
doubles. Hare replaced Fred Perry,
now a professional, while Wilde owes

School Reform
Doubles Group
In Universities
Rice Tells California Plan
To Increase Secondary
Graduates In Colleges
Through a school reform program
in California, the number of high
school graduates going to college in
that state has doubled since 1931,
Prof. George A. Rice of the University
of California told a group yesterday
in the auditorium of the University
High School.
Speaking on the California public
school reform plan, Professor Rice
said that at the beginning of the
depression three kinds of criticism
were directed at the public schools of
the state.
"People said the schools were too
selective, they argued that they were
too expensive and they complained
because the type of education of-
fered was too academic," he said.
Professor Rice told of the found-
ing of a commission to study the
situation and some of its accomplish-
ments.
This commission, according to Pro-
fessor Rice, took a survey of Cali-
fornia schools, and set up a six year
plan to experiment with the schools.
"Some of the chief features of this
plan," he said, "were the dropping
of all required subjects except his-
tory and civics for graduation from
high school, an integration between
the teaching of English and social
sciences, the correlation of many
school subjects and 100 per cent
promotion from elementary schools
to junior high schools and from jun-
ior high school to senior high;
schools."
"In general," Professor Rice con-
cluded, "we are putting vocational
work in the junior college level and
leaving it out of the high school cur-
riculum."
TRAIN KILLS TWO
FLINT, July 19.-OP)-A Grand
Trunk freight train struck an auto-
mobile near Gaines Tuesday, killing
Mrs. Irene Brady, 35, and Mitchell
Dubois, both of Flint. Two others
suffered minor injuries.
He was granted the divorce in the
Circuit Court here April 6, 1907, and
July 15, 1908, he married Frances
Spalding of this city, his present wife.
The first marriage was childless but
he has a son, Royal, Jr., by the second.
Others have stigmatized his career
as a descent from Republican to Dem-
ocrat to Tammany candidate, but to
him it's just a pursuit of govern-
mental positions where he may best
serve the public as physician to the
public problem.

,James Roosevelt, son and secre-
tary of the President, is shown here

would have to go to physiology, per-
form new experiments, and make ex-
haustive studies. He would undoubt-
edly contribute new facts to physi-
ology and kindred subjects, but-
and here is the point-he would no
longer be studying tennis. Just so
those interested in the mechanics of
speech contribute important informa-
tion, information which because of
the current demand for laboratory
facts is very popular; but they are no
longer studying speech.
Such investigators, averred Dr. Sa-
pir, need some recognition of "men-
talism"--or the plan or theory-"or
they will never get back to language,
that is, to meaningful speech."
i'The word 'speech' is," commented
Dr. Sapir, "unfortunately ambiguous.
It is an elaborate unconscious pun,
and hence causes part of the misun-
derstanding, between what have been
called different camps among those
studying in the field. But that am-
biguity should not make us forget a
certain danger facing us. Some time
ago the danger in linguistic study
was of worshipping the theory and
ignoring the physical phenomena. To-
day the danger is just the opposite.
"What we need," he continued, "is
to approach speech as it exists in the
total behavior pattern. I'm feeling
fine' is an expression that can't al-
ways be interpreted from the point of
view of syntax alone. It may mean
the opposite of what it says, and the
study of that meaning requires a so-
cial psychologist. The linguist,
studying the phenomena of speech in
themselves, must, it is true, cancel
out these other elements when he
talks about assimilation and dis-
similation and vowel coloring, but
when he does that he can not pretend
to be final.

the grade separations where the Ann
Arbor and Toledo Railroad tracks
cross Washington, Huron, and Miller
streets. He had planned to carry out
the grade separations all the way
across town, but was blocked in his
efforts by influential property own-
ers on Liberty street.
"Before the grade separations were
built," Stivers recalls, "all of the
west side property valuation was at
a low ebb, but after that it boomed.
He really opened up the development
of Ann Arbor's west side."
All of the old-timers who were in
the thick of politics and the city and
University administrations at the
time declare that Copeland was "an
excellent mayor." Stivers called him
"an independent, great fighter."
For some time during his residence
in Ann Arbor, Copeland was a mem-
ber of the Board of Education, and
from 1907 to 1908, during his last
year here, he was president of the
Board. He also was president of the
Park Commission at one time, and
through his influence he was able to
secure the land between the Huron
River and Wall street, across from
the Michigan Central depot, at that
time as eyesore and sanitary menace,
and convert it to one of the city's
better parks.
After his public school education
at Dexter, where his grandfather had
been one of the pioneer settlers, Cope-
land went to Michigan State Normal
College at Ypsilanti for his under-
graduate work and then came to the
his place on the team as a result of
the illness of George Patrick Hughes,
Tuckey's usual doubles partner.
In the end, Von Cramin proved
to be the victim of today's drama
but at the outset the fair-haired
Baron was the hero.
He came out for the crucial match
dressed in white flannel trousers and
white jacket touched with scarlet,
took off the jacket, folded it care-
fully, strode out and took the first
game on his own service at love.
Budge came within a point of
breaking through in the fifthand
finally did smash the German's serv-
ice in the ninth, after the game had
gone to deuce five times, for a 5-4
lead.
This was what the crowd had ex-
pected only most of the spectators
thought it would come sooner. But
the German immediately battered
Budge's cannonball service in the
tenth and won it at love. Von Cramm
kept playing deep shots to Budge's
forehand, racing in to bounce the
returns high into the stands. Finally
he broke through the American again
to win the 14th game and with it
the set at 8-6.
In the second set the German in-
troduced Budge to his back-hand
passing shot--a beautiful stroke
which usually sent the ball deep into
the corners. Games followed serv-
ice in this set to the 12th although
Budge had to overcome a 15-40 deficit
to save the sixth.
But in the 12th, Von Cramm, trail-
ing 0-40, hit one of these passing
shots deep for one point, cut a per-
fect drop-shot just over the net for
another, lobbed one to the baseline
for another and struck the final
blow with a forehand cross-volley
for the game and set at 7-5.

University for his medical training,
graduating in 1889.
After a year's work at the Homeo-
pathic Hospital here, Copeland went
to Bay City, where for five years he
carried on private practice in eye and
'ear medicine. Returning to Ann Ar-
bor in 1895, he became head of the
eye and ear department and a full
professor, continuing in both positions
for 13 years until 1908, when during
the reorganization which changed the
Homeopathic College to the School of
Medicine he left for New York to ac-;
cept a position as dean of the medical!
college at New York Flower Hospital.
Ten years later he was appointed
New York's Commissioner of Public
Health during a severe influenza
epidemic, and held that title until
1922, when he was elected to the U. S.
Senate. He has been reelected twice
since, and is now in his 15th consecu-
tive senatorial year.
A history of Washtenaw County,
published shortly after he first joined
the faculty here, dubbed him "one of
the distinguished representatives of
the medical fraternity in Michigan,"
pointing out that he had already
been president of the Saginaw Valley
Medical Society, the State Medical
Society, and the American Eye and
Ear society, as well as the Univer-
sity's youngest full professor. Twice

he dropped a lucrative private prac-
tice and rebuilt an even better one,
first when he left Bay City for Ann
Arbor, and again when he went to
New York.
Several times each year Copeland
returns to his home town, Dexter,
where his sister still lives, and on a
number of occasions he has given the
commencement address at the high
school there. He has been instru-
mental in the construction of an ad-
dition to the high school, a new Meth-
odist Church, and a women's public
library to which he and his sister
were outstanding contributors.
Three central themes, education,
church and government, have run
through his career. The first began
with his membership on the Boaf'd of
Education, the last with his mayor-
alty here, and his interest in the
church is first marked by his appear-
ance as a delegate at the Methodist
Ecumenical Conference in London in
1900, followed by eight years as treas-
urer of the national board of con-
rol of the Epworth League.
Senator Copeland was married first
on New Year's Eve, 1891, during his
Bay City private practice to Miss
Mary DePriest Ryan at her home in
Adrian. In 1907, however, Copeland
sued for divorce, charging desertion
two years earlier and extreme cruelty.

Single Room School
In Nev Experiment
EVANSTON, Ill., July 20.-(/P) -
Teaching the three r's to children of
all ages in a single school room is the
latest idea in education. It is not a
revival of the little red school house
in modern dress, say its Northwestern
University sponsors, but a revolu-
tionary experiment.
Prof. E. T. McSwain of Northwes-
tern's school of education, who is con-
ducting a summer demonstration
school for 1,700 teachers from all sec-
tions of the United States, explains
the experiment as an attempt to em-
phasize social adaptability rather
than specific academic accomplish-
ments.
