Russell and Fortier Likely
Principals In First Game
At Linn City
Me Reynold!, lb
Every time th Salem "and Al
bany Willamette Valley league
baseball teams have met this sea
son, the interest has centered pri
marily in the pitchers duel be
tween Johnny Beck of Salem and
Kaiph Coleman, the Albany fling-
Todars game will be different
!n that Beck, at least, won't be in
the lineup, and the indications are
that "Red" Rupert. Albany man
ager, will adopt like tactics and
reserve Coleman for the Labor
At that it will be pretty much
a battle of wits, for if either of
the managers finds a moment
when he can slip in his star tyirl
er to advantage, far enough along
in the game that the pitclierWill
not have to exert hiniseff too
much to be in shape the following
day, the chances are he will do it.
It's hardly safe to predict, how
ever, that this game won t De a
tf the others, for both Russell and
Fortier have done effective mound
irork this year: Russell had the
House of David sluggers guessing
when they played here in May,
and it was Fortier who held Bend
to two runs in the famoue game
that never was finished at Albany,
about the same time. Since then
they haven't been called on often,
bu each has performed capably
when he did get the chance. Rus
sell pitched the best game at Bend
that any of the valley league
pitchers have negotiated, and if
his support from a patched up in
field hadn't weakened, the Bend
team's record of no defeats at
home might have been spoiled.
Half Title at Slake
At any rate the long delayed
first half championship of the
league will be decided either to
day or tomorrow. Incidentally,
the actual championship of the
Willamette valley is at stake, as
Bend, though a member of the
league, isn't a valley town.
Except for the absence of
Quinn, who found it necessary to
leave for Pendletoa to begin prep
arations for his coaching work,
the Senators will be at maximum
strength here Monday, and the

BROOKLINE. Mass., jSept. 1
(AP)--The future of American
tennis took on a rosy hu here to
day when George M. Mott. Jr., and
John Hennessy, two ot the na
tion's best younger players became
the national doubles champions by
overwhelming Gerald Patterson.,
and Jack Hawkes, Australian
Davis cup players. 6-2, 6-1, 6-2, in
just 4 3 minutes. ,
Their victory was even more
impressive than that of yesterday
when they met Henri Cochet and
Jacques Brugnon of France, then
believed to be the greatest doubles
team in the world, in the semi
final round of the 47th national
championship tournament "and de
feated them by the same scores.
Australians llenbnt Hark
Yesterday the young Americans
gradually swept the Frenchmen
right off the courts at the Long
wood Cricket club, but today their
attack was so ferocious that Pat
terson and Hawkes were stunned
by their first volley. The Atf-
iralians were in retreat from the
start of the tie match to the final
point and at no time did they even
make an offensive gesture.
Lott and Hennessy planned to
center on Patterson and that vet
eran immediately wilted under
their merciless fire. Hawkes when
he tried to rally to his partner's
aid, also was beaten back.
IjOtt Hero of Day
Lott, for the second consecutive
day was the hero of the American
victory. He made 15 .earned
points and had but- 15 . errors.
Hennessy was not outclassed
much, having nine earned points
to his credit and only 15 miscues.
Patterson, usually steady, had
his service broken four times out '
of five tries. Hawkes had 16 er
rors. The Australians made only ,
16 earned points in the match.
Neither Hennessy nor Lott lost
a service and during the match
tet they won three of their four
love games. Patterson and Hawke
