to afford tho only exception to tho
rule "youth will be served.'' Youth
takes a back seat on the tennis courts
and age and experience combine to
hold the upper baud. Though this

more strongly than any other sport,

this quality which is plainly against
them with craftiness and stroke
control, which can only be acquired
through long terms of hard practice.
