adojurn without passing some bill for
reciprocity with Cuba, he would Issua
a call for an extra session wlthtn ten

It Is stated that this was not said ns
a threat In any way, but was the I'rcal

tho opponents of Isthmian canal legis

No such combination has yet been
made and the leading Republican Sena

none, but they are most positive In
their assurances that some measure fof

London to Raise
Prices at Theaters
London, May 3. English theater
goers arc mightily worked up over
Michigan, For this reason ho was
designated as the king bolt of tho com
bination, Mr. Ilurrows says:
"I never heard of such a combina
tion and don't think It wns ever pro
posed. I am In favor of the passago of
the Philippines bill and of a canal bill.
I am opposed to the passage of any
bill making a reduction In the Cuban
tariff. I would not, however, sacrifice
cither the Philippines bill or the canal
bill to bring about the defeat of a
Cuban tnrlff bill."
Senator Ilunna said that there Is
little or no opposition to tho passage
of a canal bill, and that one will be
passed, according to tho steering com
mittee's Ptogram, when the subject Is
reached In due order. Ho thinks tliero
arc only two or three Senntors on each
side of the chamber opposed to tho
canal, which Is not, of course, In any
tense a political question.
Senator Hanna Is In faor of tho
Panama loutc, as everybody knows,
but If ho falls In having the Senate In
dorso It, he will support tho Spooner
amendment leaving It to tho President
to 6elect that routo which offers the
best advantages at the lowest terms.

Positions for Holding the Racquet.
As can be readily understood, one ot tho most Important features of ping
pong Is the grip of the racquet, and while there is no hard and fast rulo to
govern this point, there Is a right and wrong way for every player to hold a
bat. Every player should grip the racquet as natiunlly as possible, as better
results are obtainable from a natural position than from a stinlned one.
Thero aro two popular grips, and whits it Is optional which Is selected, oom
Is better fitted for a man's style of play, and tho other moro suitable to tho
strokes of a woman.
One of tho most natural grips, and the ono best suited to the play of a
man, has been called the perfect grip. To obtain this the racquet haudln
should be held In tho palm of tho hand, with the first finger around th
shoulder of the bat; the other fingers should encircle tho handle and touch
the ball of the hand. The thumb must be placed on tho roverso slda of tho
bat, nnd should fctrctch about half an Inch over tho vellum. In playing tho
foiehund or straight stroke, the bat should be held horizontal with the Moor,
and the thumb side should be brought In contact with the ball, lly assuming
this position almost every variety of stioko Is possible, and tho pushing Htioko
so popular with muny players, can bo better used with this grip than any
other. To make a back-hand stroke, tho racquet has to bo reversed nnd the
knuckles should face tho net. It Is not necessary to change the grip for ,t
back stioke, although tho grip of tho last thrco lingers should bo slightly re
laxed and tho thumb and first finger-hold should bo tightened.
The other gilp, and tho ono more suitable for a woman's play, Is tho pen
handle grip, Tho handle should be held In the same position as a pen, and the
blade should for the time being be Heated ns the nlli. Tho thumb and fore
finger will then be on tho side facing the net. nnd the other threo lingers
should bo lightly bent behind tho bat. This position is best suited to begin
nets, ns tho strength of n stroko can bo better learned. In playing a hard
letuin. or hulf-volloylng, the bat should bo pushed straight out, with the el
bow Joint stationary, the action coming from tho shoulder. To lob or return
lightly, only the wrist should bo brought Into play.
Although tliero mu many other grips, these two will be found among tha
best, and bhould the) bo unnatural to tho player, a blight change might bo
made with tho fingers. They embody tho foundations nt all grips, ami
should not bo entile)' Ignoied. Tomorrow's niticla will bo devoted to tnr-vlio.
