WEST MEETS EAST
TODAY IN TENNIS
Strachan and Griffin Win
From Dixie and Represent
atives in Easy Style.
TOUCHARD IN GREAT FORM
Eastern Champions Beat Westerners,
Byford and Burdlck, 6-4, 5-7,
6-3, 0-7, and It Will Be Coast
Against Coast Today.
CHICAGO. Aug. 6. Coast will oppose
Coast in the final of the sectional dou
bles tournament at Onwentsia tomor
row. In the greatest exhibition of
tennis ever played in the West, Gus
tavo Touchard and "W. M. Washburn,
the Eastern champion pair, defeated
today Heath Byford and Ralph Burdlck,
the Western champions, 6-4, B-7. 6-3,
In a match noted in contrast for Its
one-sldedness and lack of brilliancy,
Clarence Griffin and John Strachan, the
Facific Coast champions, disposed of
Robert ShBlton and J. B. Adoue, who
bore the hopes of Dixie, 6-1, 6-4, 9-7.
The Eastern pair and Griffin and
Strachan will battle for the privilege
of playing McLoughlin and Bundy for
the National championship at Newport,
Thrllla Are Numerous.
The West-East match abounded In
thrills. The superiority of the visitors
In the long run hardly was doubted by
the big gallery, but the Chicago men
played a desperate game, and their bat
tle, uphill from the start, kept their
hundreds of supporters on keen edge.
A great match is expected in the
finals, for the California boys compose
a team of just the kind to play the
Easterners to a standstill.
Of the eight men who took part in
the matches today, Burdick and Touch
ard furnished tne most spectacular ex
hibitions. Touchard's great coolness
and his absolute confidence made him
master of more than one tight situa
tion. His placing on returns was won
derful, especially his handling of the
pretty lobs which Byford dropped to
the back line.
Easterners Masters of Net.
Masters at the net, the Eastern pair
won the opening set despite efforts of
the Chicago team to keep them back.
Burdick's smashes frequently got by,
but the terrific smashes of the Eastern
ers won the set for them easily.
The second set, won by the Western
team, was somewhat carelessly played
by the Eastern team. It was featured
by the final game, in which Touchard
was guilty of a double fault, allowing
the Western pair to tie and in 'Which he
drove the final ball into the net.
The Easterners won the next set eas
ily, foot-faults, which had caused Bur
dick some trouble earlier, preventing
him from winning one game that might
have turned the tide.
Touchard Takes Love Game.
The fourth set was as hard fought,
the teams being all square for 14 games.
Touchard, putting every ounce of steam
possible behind his drives, won the
15 th a love game. Then Washburn,
In a flash of speed, broke into Burdick's
service. and won the 16th game, carry
ing with it the match.
The all-around superiority of the
Calif ornlans over the southern pair
was obvious from the start in their
match. The Texans, encouraged by the
rapid improvement in Adoue's service,
revived as the match advanced, but
their rally came too late. Griffin ap
parently followed his tactics in the
singles of not overdoing, and was con
tent to win without taking a chance
of wearing out his convalescent part
ner. The Californiana' work at times ap
peared listless, but so did Griffin's in
a preliminary match in the Western
singles tournament the other day, and
his final victory proved that his ap
parent indift'erence is not a reliable
criterion of his condition or form.

the fans are willing to believe is a
record for the Pacific Coast League.
Rodgers appeared In seven games.
He came to bat 28 times and made 16
hits, which gives him a batting aver
age of .B71. He is also credited with
one sacrifice, two stolen bases, scored
nine runs, made four three-baggers
and landed on the ball for one home
run. Whether this constitutes a record
or not, it is certainly going at a ter

Rodgers in the last 11 games has
been at bat '.5 times with 20 hits and
batting .444. He got one or more hits
in every game.
The terrific run of the last week
puts Doane in the first division.
This gives Portland four of the seven
"above .300 hitters" in the Pacific
Coast League hardly any wonder that
the Beavers have been burning out tlw
fuses at all stations of the circle. -
Portland had six men who batted
