Before a packed gallery yesterday at the University Squash Racquets Building, W. P. Dixon '25 won the College Squash Racquets Tournament by defeating E. M. Hinkle '23 in the finals in three straight games, 15-11, 15-13, 15-17. Dixon yesterday displayed a brand of squash that makes him rank among the ten foremost squash racquets players of the country. He was at the height of his form, returning the most difficult shots and making many spectacular-kills. Hinkle played very good squash, but was outclassed by the excellent playing of Dixon.
In the first game, Dixon jumped into the lead before Hinkle had gotten started and won the game easily 15-11. The second game was similar to the first. Dixon keeping a two point lead throughout the whole game, winning 15-13. In the last game, Hinkle changed his style of play, hitting the ball very hard on every shot. At first Dixon seemed bewildered by his attack, and Hinkle gained an 11-7 lead. Here Dixon settled down and evened the score at 13 all. Hinkle here again assumed a 4 to 2 lead, but Dixon made a last spurt, winning three points, game, and match.
The semi-finals match in the Massachusetts State Squash Racquets championship between Dixon and C. C. Peabody will be played this afternoon at 3 o'clock at the Harvard Club courts.
