A reporter and artist from The Ar
gus stall set out yesterday afternoon
to investigate local tennis conditions,
feeling ihat that form of weight re
ducer had not received its due por
tion of space in the last two months.
As a result of our research, w-e dis
covered that there are two reasons
why the young men of Rock Island
enjoy playing tennis, the first being
that it's an elegant way to get a
nice husky coat of tan and, of course,
otfve guessed the second one. White
trousers? Certainly. Where is the
Rock Island young man who doesn't
regard himself as the quintessence of
pulchritude in a coat of tan and
white flannel trousers? Ans. We
never heard of puch.

It happened that the purveyor of
'pictorial persiflage, the artist, con
' sidered that he was quite some little
'racquet swinger himself, having won

tournament once. He explained that
he hadn't played much in Rock Island,
as he hadn't been able to find anyone
that could make it interesting for

expressed to us the general logic used
by the feminine mind in a game of

Knockout Brown, a Chicago wrestler
who recently invaded the local grap

2:30, and Ralph McClsary, one of the
principals in one of the two prelim
inaries, will referee the main go.
Either Lonie or Knockout will boss the
McCleary-Brondell exhibition of 30
minutes which is to precede the feat

and McCleary, two of the likeliest
j lightweights around here, are not bat

i showing in the exhibition line.
