S. M. Stellwagen 4L. won the University championship singles tournament by defeating R. C. Rand '19, 6-3, 6-3, 6-8, 6-4 on Jarvis Field yesterday afternoon. In the first set Rand's failure to pass Stellwagen at the net accounted for his defeat. Although the score of the second set was the same as the first, the games were closer and Rand seemed better able to adapt himself to his opponent's play. Stellwagen ran the score of the next set up to 5-2, Rand being puzzled by his twisting serve. Stellwagen took the first two points on Rand's serve, but the latter braced, a well-placed shot, and a hard smash giving him the game. Rand then ran the score up to 5 all, and, after Stellwagen had taken the next game, won the following three and the set. The last set was a repetition of the first two, Stellwagen's serve, net play, and brilliant back hand on deep court shots giving him the set and match. Both men played strong games, but Stellwagen's greater experience and steadiness gave him the match.
