Playing the same steady and con
sistent game that has placed him in
the foremost rank of local tennis
players, Catlin Wolfard yesterday
afternoon defeated Walter A. Goss in
the finals of the annual spring handi
cap tournament of the Multnomah
Amateur Athletic club in straight
sets, the scores being 7-5, 6-2. 6-4.
By winning this event Wolfard ob
tains possession of the Alma I. Katz
trophy for one year. Goss handicap
was owe SO 3-6 and Wolfards owe.
40. These were the heaviest handi-j
caps of the tournament.
Goss, who holds two legs of the
cup, made a valiant effort to win the
match, as it would have given him
the coveted trophy for good.
Lead Bandied About.
Goss started out well in the. first
Fet, taking two games. Wolfard won
the next three, gaining the lead. Goss
tied the count by winning the next
same. The players split on the .next
pair of games and the score stood 5
all. Wolfard . then settled down and
won the next two games, giving him
the set, seven games to five.
Goss won the first game of the
second set, but Wolfard took the lead
in short order, taking the next two
arnes. Goss took - the next game,
"making the score stand two apiece.
Wolfard won the set by taking the
next four games in a row. The set.
score was 6-4.
Wolfard piled up a lead of three
rames in the third set and then
- dropped the next two. Wolfard took
two more and Goss took two more.
,,, Wolfard took the next game hand-
- ily, and with it the set and match
,, Score 6-4.'
v Gosi Is Outclassed.
Goss was outclassed by his younger
opponent, but kept fighting hard
- throughout the -entire three sets.
.1 Wolfard played a smashing game,
driving the ball to the back line on
many occasions. His lobbing was
"-nearly perfect, and when forced to
use it he played them deep in the
court. .
, Wolfard has developed a wonder
ful forehand drive, placing the ball
well to the back and corners of the
court. This stroke will be a source
"of much discomfort to the players
who will meet him in the coming
mm tournaments.
" Throughout the match both players
executed some very difficult shots,
bringing loud applause from the large
gallery- that was on hand.
If plans of Walter A. Goss, north
west sectional delegate of the United
States Lawn Tennis association, and
Julian S. Myrick, president, go
through as expected, the followers of
the racquet game in this part of the
state will see one of the best of the
junior players of the east in compe
tition in local tournaments.

ZZ. They had planned on having Alfred
H. Chapin Jr. tome west, but at the
last minute he decided to go abroad
with his family. Chapin will be re
membered, as the player who defeated
1'hil Neer, the local tennis star, in the
junior championships at Forest Hills,
N. Y. He is rated fourth In the na-
tional junior event.
The association is now endeavoring
to get Harold Taylor, well known
throughout the east for his playing
in junior competition, to make the
trip out here and impart a few bits
of knowledge to the local players as
to how the game is played on the At
lantic coast.
Mr. Goss - is .lmost assured that
Taylor will be the player selected, as
