    WIMBLEDON CHAMPION, "CHUCK" McKINLEY, LOST TO THE MEXICAN, RAFAEL OSUNA, IN STRAIGHT SETS IN THE SEMI-FINALS OF THE UNITED STATES LAWN TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP YESTERDAY (SATURDAY). HE WENT DOWN 6-1 6-4 10-8.

    McKINLEY, AN AMERICAN, WAS THE NO. 1 SEED FOR THE TITLE BEING PLAYED AT FOREST HILLS. HOWEVER, OSUNA'S NEAR PERFECT PLAY PROVED TOO GREAT AND OBSTACLE. THE MEXICAN'S SERVE WAS VASTLY SUPERIOR TO THE TOP SEED, WHILE HIS SPLENDID PLACEMENT FREQUENTLY LEFT HIS OPPONENT FLAT-FOOTED.

    OSUNA NOW MEETS ANOTHER AMERICAN, F, FROEHLING, IN THE FINAL. FILM SHOWS OSUNA SERVING; McKINLEY SHOWING DISAPPOINTMENT AND OSUNA WINNING THE MATCH POINT.
