Such as, frinstance, getting up at
4 o'clock in the morning so that you'll
be sure and get a court. No one denies
that the early morning hours are a
very pleasant season of the day, but
tramping through grass at this time
has the effect of getting the feet very
vet indeed. Dew is great stuff in
poetry, but it's terribly wet. After ar
riving at the court the real tennis

when the balls were perfectly good
and the cllmt!e conditions were fav

they do lose they discover that their
racket needs tightening or they're
been feeling out of sorts lately or else
it's something else. Anyone who ever
ron a set at tennis fairly and squarely
to the satisfaction of his opponent.
Tennis owes a large part of its popu
larlty to the fact that it finds great
favor with the feminine gender.
Which of course endears the game to
the gallant sex, if we do say so. and
in this way the following is increased
to the nth power. A pretty girl can
create more tennis enthusiasts by
appearing on the court in person than
all the argument there is. All tennis
girls, like all the angels in. the Uttls
song, have big feet. This is more or
less cf an illusion, however, and ten
nis girls shouldn't be offended. It is
because they usually wear white shoes
which do make a gin's feet seem large.
All that don't wear white shoes re

would make their feet seem large o
these latter must have big feet any.
