Murray, the Meteor, is burning an
other crimson trail along the Atlantic
After a year's absence" frm the
east the sensational Californian has
returned to New York in quest of
fresh tennis laurels. In his maiden
efforts at the seventeenth annual na
tional indoor court championships
the native son, Robert Lindley Mur
ray, to apply his full moniker, merely
warmed up by disposing of G. Carle-
ton Shafer, twice indoor doubles
champion; Carleton Y. Smith, Cotton
states premier, and King Smith, dad
dy of all the -Seventh Regiment, New
York National guard. While thus en
gaged the Meteor won 36 games and
losfe 16. Moreover he won his own
service every time but twice.
A pell-mell, bristling style makes
Murray the magnet wherever he ap
pears. Just as some pictures point
their fingers at you wherever you go,
so the tall, panther-like Stanford
graduate keeps your gaze riveted up
on his dashing, reckless play. Back
in 1914 when he was on his most
remarkable rampage he drove more
than one groundkeeper to despair
and on every court where Murray ap
peared his sensational service and net
play attended by rushes played hob
with the turf. In fact, Murray made
the whole forecourt bald. Conse
quently the groundkeepers were
worked overtime sewing fresh seed.
