Nine Boats
In Gold Cup
Race Today
DET'ROIT-(1)-A classy field
of nine speedboats was tuned up
yesterday for the 42nd annual
running of the Gold Cup race to-
day.
Several other boat owners hur-
riedly sent their craft through
qualifying trials in hopes of win-
ning a starting berth in the race,
oft-referred to as the "Kentucky
Derby of American Speedboat
Racing."
Among late qualifiers today was
Henry J. Kaiser's Hot Metal which
did three laps around the 21/2
mile course at an average of
67.601 miles per hour. The quali-
fying requirement was 65 MPH.
Norm Lauderbach piloted the
West Coast industrialist's boat in
its afternoon qualifying runs.
Earlier yesterday, Hot Metal tour-
ed the course in test runs but it
was not an official qualifying test.
Miss Great Lakes, the defending
champion, qualified with a 67.72
mph mark yesterday, as did two
other Detroit boats.
They were: Miss Pepsi, driven
by Chuck Thompson, 69.213 mph;
and Astraea, driven by D. Camer-
on Peck of Chicago which did an
even 66 mph.
Among the craft which failed
to qualify in test runs yesterday
were Henry Kaiser's second boat,
Aluminum First; La Hala, driven
by Harry Lynn of St.rLouis; Etta,
owned by George Sargent of Free-
port, L.I.; and Dukie owned by
Thomas and Howard Hughes of
Detroit.
The qualifying tests left Wild
Bill Cantrell's My Sweetie as fa-
vorite for the Gold Cup. Cantrell
qualified, earlier this week with a
92.402 mark and hit well past the
100 mile an hour mark on the
straight-away.
Bandleader Guy Lombardo qual-
ified with 73.127 in Tempo VI and
Danny Arena qualified in Such
Crust I with an 82.317 mark, while
Moran Visel qualified in Hurri-
cane IV of Los Angeles with 76.530.
The race will be a 90-mile af-
fair, staged in three 30 mile heats,
over the Detroit River course.
The winner will be adjudged on
a point system, with 400 for any
first place in any heat; 400 for
the boat making the fastest 90
miles and 400 for the craft doing
the fastest 30 miles.

FAMILIAR SIGHT-Joltin' Joe DiMaggio whose sensational 1949
debut will probably haunt his ex-boss, Joe McCarthy, for months
crosses the plate with his fourth home run in three days of action
at Boston's Fenway Park. The Yankee Clipper's four bagger
scored Tom Henrich (15) and Phil Rizzuto (1) ahead of him to
give the Yanks the needed margin for a 6-3 victory over the
Red Sox. His first three home runs won the opening two games
of the series for New York.

In .Five Sets
LONDON- (R)-Ted Schroeder
won the Wimbledon Tennis cham-
pionship yesterday by putting to-
gether two great passing shots that
stopped Jaroslav Drobny of Czech-
oslovakia in a five-set final.
This double-barreled maneuver
in the seventh game of the fifth
set enabled the two-seeded favor-
ite from La Crescenta, Calif., to
complete his initial conquest of the
men's singles title, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3,
4-6, 6-4.
IT CRACKED Drobny's service
and broke up a match that had
stood dead levelat two sets and
three games each with the points
at 30-all.
Schroeder then held his own
delivery in the eighth game,
dropped the ninth, and ran out
the match by serving a love
game before a packed house of
17,000, including four members
of the royal family.
The 27-year-old Californian,
who started the tournament on
June 20 as a 7-4 favorite, jus-
tified the short odds by rising
always to the necessary heights.
AS IN PREVIOUS matches, Ted
came up with the right shots at
the right time. The first of the
two which broke Drobny's heart
was a blistering cross-court back-
hand, hit on the run. The second
was a backhand down the sideline.
Until that critical moment the
match belonged to anyone. Both
played forcing games with
volleys and smashes that nipped
rallies at the outset.
Dowager Queen Mary, Princess
Margaret, the Duke of Edinburg,
and the Duchess of Kent saw the
match, played in steaming heat.
THE DUCHESS, sister-in-law
of the King, came down on the
court from the Royal Box to pre-
sent the victor's trophy to Schroe-
der.
Later the Princess and Queen
Mary congratulated the new
champion, third American
winner since Yvon Petra of
France took the title in 1946.
Jack Kramer of Los Angeles
won the prize in 1947 and Bob
Falkenburg of Beverly Hills,
Calif., captured it last year.
All-American finals today in
both men's and women's doubles,
as well as women's singles, were
assured by the outcome of semi-
final matches yesterday.
U.S. CHAMPION Richard Gon-
zales and Frankie Parker, both of
Los Angeles, defeated Sturgess and
Budge Patty of Los Angeles, 6-3,
6-1, 3-6, 5-7, 7-5, and will meet
Schroeder and Mulloy for the
men's doubles title. The latter pair
gained the final round Thursday,
In the women's doubles final it
will be Louise Brough of Beverly
Hills and Mrs. Margaret Osborne
DuPont of Bellevue, Del., against
Gertrude Moran of Santa Mon-
ica, Calif., and Mrs. Pat Todd of
LaJolla, Calif.
Miss Brough and Mrs. DuPont
drubbed the British team of Joy
Cannon and Mrs. Betty Hilton,
6-2, 6-2. Defending doubles
champs, the winners also will meet
in the singles final for the title
won last year by Miss Brough.

ton. 5-4, last night.
