In Taking Boys Title
KALAMAZOO, Aug. 7.- "(P)- A
pair of youthful- Californians added
another chapter to a continuing
story of their home state's tennis
prestige today as top-seeded Bob
Falkenburg, 17, of Hollywood and
Rerbie Flam, 14, of Beverly Hills an-
nexed the 'National Junior and Boys
Falkenburg, 6-foot, 2-inch junior
ate, swept past second-seeded James
Brink of Seattle, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, in the
finals to annex the title .vacated by
mnother Californian, Budge Patty of
Los "Angeles, who won in 1941 and
Flam, seeded first in the boys di-
vision, turned back Edwin Davis of
Baton Rouge, La., 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, suf-
fering his first loss, of a set since the
opening of the Western Boys Cham-
pionship, which he won last week.
Both Falkenburg and Flam clearly
dominated play throughout in their
respective divisions but each had his
hadest fight in the title match.
Though Falkenburg gained his
finals verdict in straight sets and
waded through his last five oppon-
ents without losing a set, he lost
nearly as many games in the title go
with Brink as he had in all his prev-
ious matches of the tourney. For,the
distance he dropped but 28 games,
13 of them to Brink, in 11 sets.
After grabbing the first two sets
today, Falkenburg dropped back to
the baseline and relied on well-
placed drives to mark up the clinch-

Ryder Cup Squad Takes Lead
Over Foes at End of First Day

DETROIT, Aug. 7. -(R)- Cagey
little Gene Sarazen slipped one over
on his old rival, Sir Walter Hagen,
today as Craig Wood's Ryder Cup
squad seized a 21/2 to 11/2 lead over
Hagen's challengers in golf's w.r-
orphaned world series.
Sarazen, firing a four-under-par
over the rolling Plum Hollow course,
contributed enormously to a four-
ball victory with Wood over Hagen
and Melvin (Chick) Harbert that
went right to the 18th green. The
score was 1 up.
That sent the Cup's squad away to
a lead it never relinquished. Jimmy
Demaret and Sgt. Vic Ghezzi added
another triumph, while Byron Nelson
and Harold (Jug) McSpadden broke
even for another half point. The
lone challenger victory was gained
by Swing-In "Sammy" Byrd and
Jimmy Thomson.
Today's successes made Wood's
squad an overwhelming favorite to
finish the conquest in eight 36 hole
singles matches tomorrow to take
TARBORO, N. C., Aug. 7.-()-
Matt Mann Jr., son of Michigan's
famous swimming coach, set a new
Junior National 800 meter free
style record tonight when he swam
the distance in 11:17.6, more than
20 seconds under the old mark.
Mann's time bettered the old
record of 11:41.2.

a 3 to 1 series edge. Only twice
in nine international and domestic
matches has a team overcome a first
day deficit. To win tomorrow Hagen's
team would have to take five of
eight singles matches.
Demaret and Ghezzi gained the
most one-sided triumph, defeating
Navy Lieut. Lawson Little and Light
Horse Harry Cooper 5 and 4. Nelson
and McSpaden, unbeaten in Ryder
play, came from behind on the last
hole to tie Willie Goggin and O'Neil
(Buck) White.
Byrd and Thomson, with Sammy
ripping four shots off par, defeated
Lloyd Mangrum and Frank Walsh,
2 and 1.
Hutson Signs
For One More
GREEN BAY, Wis., Aug. 7.-(P)-
Don Hutson, the greatest offensive
end in professional football history,
has decided to play "one more year"
with the Green Bay Packers of the
National League.
The slender, wiry wingman, who
came up from Alabama in 1935 to
write more records into the National
League book than any other man,
signed a contract' today.

Haegg BreaksC
Two-Mile Mark
At Cincinnati
CINCINNATI, Aug. 7.- (P-Gun-
der Haegg thundered over the quar-
ter mile course at Withrow Stadium
tonight for a new American outdoor
record for the two-mile run. He was
timed officially at 8:51.3, bettering
the mark he set at Los Angeles by 2
and 3/10 seconds.
The gaunt Swede was not first
across the finish line, however. Lit-
tle Bob Berger, high school student
of Bay Village, O., with a 440 yard
handicap to work on, broke the tape
in 8:49.7.
Bill Hulse, America's fastest miler,
was third, although he was given a
100 yard handicap, and Gil Dodds,
Boston Divinity student, who started
from scratch with Gunder the Won-
der, came in last.
In setting the new American out-
door record, the Gavle Gazelle, who
is a fireman by trade in his native
village of Gavle, Sweden, failed to
break the fastest American two-mile
run which was hung up by Greg
Rice, barrel-chested ex-Notre Dame
star, who ran the distance indoors in
Chicago in 8:51.1.
Dodds broke in front of Haegg at
the starter's gun and the swift Swede
was content to let him hold in front
for two laps. At this point Gunder
started to move. He kept driving to
pass Hulse at the 5 and 34 mark.

DETROIT, Aug. 7.-- ()- Thev
Chicago White Sox pushed over sev-
en runs in the first four innings to
defeat the Detroit Tigers today, 7 to
4, and even the four-game series at
a game apiece.
Bill Dietrich, who doubled to clear
the bases in the Chicagoans' three-
run third, was replaced by G. R.
Maltzberger when the Tigers threat-
ened in the eighth, but received cred-
it for his seventh victory. Dietrich
gave up nine of Detroit's 11 hits.
The Sox got 14 safeties off Lefty
Hal Newhouser, Johnny Gorsica and
Henry (Prince) Oana, with New-
houser being charged with the defeat.
The setback deprived the Tigers
of any chance of gaining third place
in the American League standings in
the immediate future.
Wakefield Gets Notice
DETROIT, Aug. 7.- ()- The
blow which Manager Steve O'Neill of
the Detroit Tigers has been expect-
ing all along fell today. Dick Wake-
field, his star rookie outfielder, re-
ceived word that he will be inducted
into the armed service on Aug. 17.
The young former University of
Michigan player will be inducted in
Chicago, his home city. He said he
would leave Detroit Aug. 16 and
would return to the Tigers for three
weeks if he is assigned to the Army.
If he is sent into the Navy he will
have only a week and he said that
in this event he would not return

NEW YORK, Aug. 7.- (A)- The
last place Giants tied a major league
record today by leaving 18 men on
base in losing, 9 to 6, to the Phillies.
The unenviable record is held jointly
by several clubs.
Two homers by shortstop Glen
Stewart sparked the Phils to their
second straight triumph. His first
came in the third inning and broke
a 4-4 tie. His second circuit clout

came in the seventh with two on and
accounted for the winning runs.

inning in which the Bucs scored all
their runs.

tory over the Chicago Cubs as a 56th
