MILEPOSTS—DIED: MOLLA BJURSTEDT MALLORY, 67, eight times U.S. National singles, twice doubles, three times mixed-doubles champion, in Stockholm. Mrs. Mallory came to U.S. on visit in 1914, stayed to become women's singles champion following year with a driving style of play that changed women's tennis. In 1923 and 1927 she lost to Helen Wills. Twice she won mixed doubles with Bill Tilden. She disliked practicing, criticized modern players for their rigorous training: "They don't seem to have any fun. You know, I think they go to bed at 9 o'clock."

DIED: MAX BAER, onetime heavyweight boxing champion and part-time movie actor, of a heart attack, in Hollywood (see page 29).
