Himself by Accident
FOREST HILLS, N. Y., Sept. 8.—
William M. Johnstone, the new national
tennis singles champion, and his part
ner, Clarence J. Griffin, won the nation
al tennis doubles championship here this
afternoon by defeating the titleholders,
Maurice E. McLoughlin and Thomas C.
Bundy in a match that went the full
It was one of the most brilliantly
played and bitterly contested matches
ever seen in the history of the game—
and youth won.
The scores were 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6,
The wonderful playing of Johnston
and the surprisingly poor form shown
by the once peerless McLoughlin tells
the story’ of the victory for the youth
ful pair and the defeat of the older
men who won the championships in
1912, 1913 and 1914.
During the first set Johnston and
Griffin devoted most of their attention
to studying the service and the driv
ing of their older rivals. They lost
that set, but when the second set be
gan the Pacific Coast champion set
tled down to real tennis playing, as
suming the offensive, and from then
on it seemed a certainty that their su
perior ability, their youth and their
dashing attack must triumph.
McLoughlin faltered often and the
showing that his team made was due
largely to the great playing of Bundy,
who was here, there and everywhere
Dumba Plans Menace
To U. S. Friendship
WASHINGTON, Sept. 8.—President
Wilson to-day assumed personal di
rection of the Administration’s han
dling of the complications which have
arisen through the activity of Dr
Constantin Dumba, the Austro-Hun
garian Ambassador, in endeavoring to
prevent delivery of American muni
tions to the Allies.
The question nas broadened so that
the issues involved are now vital as
affecting the friendly relations exist
ing between the two governments. It
is no longer merely whether Dr. Dum
ba was overzealous. He has taken the
position that he was carrying out in
structions from his home government
in seeking to prevent Austro-Hunga
rian citizens from manufacturing
more munitions for Austria's enemies.
And in making that Statement the
Ambassador has brought up for the
Administration’s consideration the
general activity of the belligerents’
diplomatic representatives in this

Alf C. Ford, one of the most widely
nown advertising men in Atlanta,
;cidentally shot himself with a re-
slver early Wednesday and is in a
■itieal condition at Grady Hospital,
he physicians say he has a chance
,r life unless complications set in.
The bullet narrowly missed the
;art and entered the left lung, pass-
g through the body. Mr. Ford was
msclous when he was taken to the
sspital and remained conscious most
1 the day.
Mr. Ford arose from the sleeping
orch at his home, No. 25 Bonaven-
,ire avenue, at 6:50 o'clock Wednes-
ay morning and started Into the
ouse to dress. In one hand he bore
jme articles of clothing and in the
ther a revolver, which he kept under
is pillow at night and which he in-
mded placing in a safe place in-
oors. He was twirling the revolver,

ischarged and the bullet entered his
A. rush call to Grady Hospital
brought an ambulance and Mr. Ford,
still in his pajamas, was hurried to
the operating table for examination.
The surgeons announced that he was
In a serious condition, but unless
complications arose, such as are fre
quent in wounds of the lungs, there
was a chance to nave his life.
Mr. Ford’s wife and mother went
with him to the hospital and re
mained by his bedside.
Probably no man of his age in At
lanta has a wider circle of friends
than Alf Ford His unfailing good
humor and his ability to win new ac
quaintances and convert them Into
friends has made him liked by thou
sands of Atlantans, and messages of
regret over the accident poured into
the hospital Wednesday.
