Hi
SATUEDAY'S final of
the annual Midwinter
Tennis Championship
rounded out a week of
play in which interest
centered in the contest
for chief honors between
J. D. E. Jones, the title
holder and Ehode Island
champion, and C. M. Bull, Jr., of the
West Side Tennis Club, and a movie pan
tonine it was throughout. Seven five
was the score in the first set with Bull
keeping Jones always on the move, but
who, nevertheless, sent most everything
back. The second set was a 6 3 win for
the Rhode Islander, followed by a bril
liant rally and 6 1 win for Bull, who
fairly played Jones off his feet with ter
rific smashes. It was all over, however,
in the fourth where the title holder
recorded a 6 0 Waterloo for the match,
trophy, and a second "leg" on the big
challenge cup. Jones ' semi-final defeat
of Irving Wright proved to be the match
of the event; a 6 1 win followed by a
breathless 9 7 and decisive victory.
Five games to one was the score in Jones '
favor when Wright rallied and by bril
liant foot work and perfect playing,
placed the score at 5 all, followed by a
nip and tuck struggle which resulted in
a 9 7 win for the champion. H Bull's
semi-final was a not-so-easy 6 3, 6 3
over II. A. Mackinney and both finalists
came forward without much difficulty.
MISS COHEN WINS WOMEN'S SINGLES
The final for the women's trophy be
tween Miss Eleanor Cohen and Miss Helen
Barnett was the prettiest contest of its
character ever waged here; the Philadel
phian recording an 8 6 win in opening,
only to lose, 4 6, and claiming the title
with a 6 1 win in the final set through
fine back court work and volleying. Miss
Cohen's semi-final was a 6 0, 6 3 vic
tory over Miss Lucy Treat; Miss Barnett
advancing on a 6 3, 6 1 win from Mrs.
J. C. Hincheliffe; neither finalist encoun
tering difficulty in preliminary play.
BRILLIANT PLAY IN MEN 'S DOUBLES
Play in the men's doubles developed a
series of brilliant matches undoubtedly
the best tennis of the event with the
climax in the final which Bull and Wright
won from Jones and Mackinney in a full
five set struggle: 26,6 3,36,63,
7 5; with Wright as the all-round star
of the quartet. Time and again he made
wonderful recoveries on superb place
ments, the winning pair promptly killing
the return. In analysis of strokes
Wright's steadiness is apparent; Jones
recording fifty errors and Mackinney
fifty-two; Bull eighty-two and Wright
only thirty-two.
MIXED DOUBLES POPULAR FEATUEE
1 1 Society ' ' bestowed its favor upon the
mixed doubles, the evenly matched field
progressing by a series of close matches
which brought Mr. Mackinney and Miss
Barnett, and Mr. Jones and Miss Cohen
together in the final. The first two sets
were even honors by 2 6, 6 1, and the
score 3 all in the third when Mr. Mac
kinney and his partner pulled away for a
6 3 win. 1In the semi-finals the win
ners defeated Arthur Ingraham and Miss
Lucy Treat by 6 2, 6 3 ; and the losers,
Mr. Bull and Miss Hincheliffe, by 6 3,
6 2 ; and nary was there a ' 1 love match ' '
in preliminary play.
CONTEST ALSO IN WOMEN'S DOUBLES
A contest, also, was reserved for the
women's doubles final in which Mrs.
Hincheliffe and Miss Treat won easily by
6 1, from Miss Cohen and Miss Alice
Presbrey, only to find an 8 6 victory cut
out for them in the decisive test . In the
semi-finals the winners were 6 2, 6 2 in
play with Mrs. A. C. Aborn and Miss B.
V. Farrington, and the losers recorded a
keen 6 2; 1 6, 6 I win from Miss M.
S. Eiee and Miss N. B. Farrington.
CANADIAN ENTRY WAS REPRESENTATIVE
E. S. Glassco, T. II. Hall, Charles
Dineen and Walter Goldstein of Toronto,
and W. H. Weller of St. Catherines, con
stituted the representative "across the
border ' entry, but they figured only as
opposing factors in the doubles where
both pairs were eliminated in the second
round of play. H In singles Glassco was
the only one of the quintet to survive the
opening round, and in mixed doubles their
names appeared upon the bracket but once.
NEW COURTS ARE PERFECTION
The new courts were universally
declared to be "perfection," and the
present location ideal from standpoint of
both players and onlookers. fAnd, yes,
there's much planning for 1916 ( Every
