Four Former U. S. Champions
Overshadow Foreigners.
Coach Huntington Predicts Ex
cedent Season.
Brilliant Fashion In Which Ameri
can Acquit Themselves Proves
Cla of Yankee Racquet Men.
NEW YORK, Sept. 9. (Special.) It
was my Rood fortut to be a spectator
at Forest Hills, tne West Side Tennis
club's beautiful home, the other after
noon and to witness the performances
on the crass courts mere oi irt-
tirally all of the great tennis players
of the day. There were Brookes. Pat
terson and Thomas, of Australia: Kum
acae. of Japan, and Johnston. Williams,
McLoughlin. Murray. Tilden. Johnson,
Garland, Pell. Hall and others of only
slightly lesser decree.
Here were four former American na
tional champions: the present English
champion. Patterson: former Australian
champion, Brookes, incidentally one of
the greatest of all players of all time;
and the Japanese champion, Kumagae.
.Trail In Considered at A pea.
The results of that day have been
told and perhaps any Interested at all
in critical discussions of tennis will
remember that the day marked the
overthrow of the great Gerald L. Pat
terson by the brilliant little William M.
Johnston: the elimination of the amas
ing little tennis wizard. Kumagae, by
Tilden. and the surprise afforded by
Garland when he pushed Norman E.
Brookes out to five sets and several
times during their match appeared a
certain winner.
The general expression of the New
Tork tennis writers In next morning's
papers waa that it was just about the
greatest day in the history of lawn
tennis. Not only the brilliant fashion
in which America's foremost players
acquitted themselves against the
greatest representatives of other na
tions, but the sensational character of
the matches themselves outside of
their peculiar international sporting
appeal. All three of the matches above
went out to five sets, the outcome
hanging uncertainly to the very last.
Patterson Srrm la Paris.
f had seen Patterson play in Paris
at the inter-allied games, where also
was the great Uobert. A few weeks
ago, I was talking over the coming
matches with Kd Moss, sporting editor
of the Associated Press. I expressed to
him at that time my opinion that Pat
terson could not beat the best we had
In America, although I had never seen
them, either. I only based my opinion
on watching Patterson against mefl
like Captain Washburn, Lieutenant
Dean Mathey men who, I knew, could
not rate better than among the second
ten. I also knew what tennis experts
like Joe Tyler could do and I found
myself constantly wondering what the
Tyler and McBurney I had seen in the
years of our very high-grade north
western competitions between 1906 and
1907 down to 1914 and 1915, could do,
were they in their best form, against
these men.
I do not hesitate to opine that they
would have rendered an excellent ac
counting of themselves and would have
been abler representative of America
in the inter-allied tests than were
Washburn and Mathey.
But I simply knew there must be bet
ter tennis somewhere than I saw in
those preliminary inter-allied tests.
When the giant Frenchman. Gobert, un-
limbered to the task of beating Cap
tain O Hara Wood, the Australian, in
the inter-al'.ied final. I had my first
glimpse of what I was sure was really
top notch international tennis. The
inter-allied tourney was played, as are
all European continental tourneys, on
hard courts.
Gobert Called Master of Day.
They tell me that Gobert is the mas
ter of any living man on the hard court.
He looked It that day and the things he
could do on the dirt surface at the
State Francaise had more of the tinge
of wizardry even than one saw on the
springy grass courts of the West Sid
club when Tilden and Johnston and
Brookes and Williams and Murray un
corked their wares. But, the on who
know tennis readily appreciates that
the performances are incomparable.
Naturally, the ball will rise faster and
higher from hard dirt than from turf.
At Wimbledon, on turf. Gobert was
unable to accomplish much, nor has he
ever shown anything Ilk his true class
on the grajs.
For adaptability, w must therefor
hand the palm to our brilliant Callfor
nians, who were educated on dirt and
even asphalt, the hardest of hard court
types, but when graduated to the turf
of the national, and International
classics, readjust their eye and grip
and strokes to the slower and duller re
bound and perform like real champions.
Ex-VarMty Men, Released From
Service, Promise to Play.
NOTRE DAME. Ind., Sept. 9.-rWlth at

Trap Men Plan to Attend AValia
Walla and Palouse Events.
Portland trapshooters will have the
opportunity to attend two registered
tournaments within the next four
weeks. The first slated is by the Walla
Walla Rod and Gun club of Walla
Walla. Wash., which will open its new
trap grounds with a registered shoot
on September 21, 22 and 23. The other
registered event will be held at Pa
louse, Wash., under the auspices of the
Idawa Gun club. Excellent programmes
have been arranged by both clubs and
a number of local shooters are planning
on attending one of the two shoots if
not both.
Portland shooters returning from the
recent Pacific shoot at Lake Crescent,
Wash., are still talking about what a
time they had. At the annual meeting
of the Pacific Indians on the last day
of the tournament. September 6, It was
voted to again stage the event-at Lake
Crescent in 1920. H. R. "Hi" Everding
was re-elected high chief and E. H.
Keller of Portland was one of those
named on the newly appointed tourna
ment committee.

Salmon Trout Cause Anglers to Rus

HOOD RIVER, Or.. Sept. 9. (Spe
cial.) Hosts of Izaak Walton's dis
ciples were out on Hood river Sun
day. Salmon trout have begun the fall
run and numbers of enviable catches
were made. E. A. Franz Sr.. landed
three fine salmon trout.
A dearth of fresh and canned salmon
eggs, the customary bait at this season
of the year, continues here, and angler
tried tempting the visiting trout with
"57 varieties" of tidbits. Most of the
trout were taken with spoons.

Line Gets Strength.
The line will be further strengthened
for the coming season by the probable
arrival of Sp'.ke Leslie, who played
tackle on the 1916 freshman team. Last
year he played with the Vancouver
Barracks team.
Three mighty gcod men have signi
fied their intention of trying out for

going to try for it again, and Brick
Leslie, who played center on Bead-sk's
1917 team, will probably be back. Merle
(Bustier) Blake, who played fullback
on the team last year, says that he is
going out fir center this year.
Carl Mati'.z will be on deck for a
guard position this year. Pat O'Rourke,
the fighting Irishman, will be back
again and is going to try hard for a
tackle position.
"We have a hard schedule this year,"
Coach Huntington declared. "We start

CAMELS are as delightful to your taste
as they are new. And, so satisfying
that they meet every cigarette desire you
ever have had.
Camels are unusual; in fact, they're unlike
any cigarette you ever smoked. That's
because they're an expert blend of choice
Turkish and choice Domestic tobaccos, pro
ducing a quality that meets your taste as
no other cigarette ever did.
Camels expert blend gives that mellow-mild-body
and frees the cigarettes from
any unpleasant cigaretty aftertaste or any
unpleasant cigaretty odor. You can smoke
Camels as liberally as you like without
tiring your taste.
You have only to get personally acquainted
with the expert Camel blend to know that
you prefer it to either kind of tobacco
smoked straight!
