Draw notes and Summary:

Siblings beat each other twice: Helen defeated Mercedes Marlowe and Betty beat her brother James.

Ruth Oexman/Fred Perry (GB) d. Mary Cutter/Edward/Feibelman 8-6 3-6 6-3. The NYT reports 1st set score as 7-6-cleary an error. It must have been either 8-8 or 7-5.

The NYR uses Burritt/Raiville as a team in the 1R but then makes Harte her partner for the 2R! One must be in error.

Cross and Alison easily win their QF on a replay a 56 game match is suspended for darkness at 13 all. Defending champs and #1 seeds Nuthal/Lott are upset in the semifinals.
