(AP) The most promising ten
nis players In England and the
United States, Frederick J. Perry
and Ellsworth Vines, today gained
the final round of Newport casino
tournament by upsetting members
of American Davis cup forces.
Perry, clashing with Sidney
Wood of New York for thth!rd
time this season, wore that blond
stylist down to such . an extent
that he suffered a severe cramp
in bis left leg Just when the Bri
ton had match nolnt In the 12th
game of the fifth, set. Perry had'
a 40-30 lead against service wnen
Wood's leg folded under him.
Sidney wanted to play out the
match but officials defaulted him.
Perry's scores for the completed
sets were 8-3; 6-7. 2-8. 8-1. Vines
also was carried to five sets be
fore eliminating stubborn Johnny
Van Ryn. 6-3, 7-9, 3-8, 8-2, 8-1.
Friends of Ben Claggx't, who
was not named as a deputy game

the state police department, . are
planning to appeal to Charles
Pray, state police commissioner.
and to Governor Julius L Meier,
in an effort to have Claggett re
named as a member of the game
enforcement body in the state.
It was apparent here yesterday
that representatives from every
sportsmen's group in the county
would go together to make the
plea for Claggett. Sportsmen
pointed out yesterday that he bad
been one of the most active dep

In shcrt. Marr had to walk the?
distance to the service station,
call out the owner and carry;'
back, the gas. It was after 2 a.
m. before the family; 'reached
home. ' f
