Although the lowering clouds kept
a number of the tennis enthusiasts
"away, there was netertheless a large

J were repaid, as the match was easily

5 all standpoints.

rvn. TrMmiarlr aood feature of the
match was the fact that all four play
ers hare showed improvement over
their play of last year. Castle Is a
mnrh imnroved nlaver. He is perhaps
nlarlne better tennis this year than
ever before, and the same may be saw
frt PTriund. The Ewa man has been
handicapped by lack of, practise, but
he should be in shape to give Browne
and Wayne a real nght in reoruary.
nnt could not ask for better ten
nis than that which Miss Hopper ex
hibited yesterday, and her play show
ed a real improvement In only one
other match has she showed the all
around play that was exhibited in the
final match.
Malle Vicars is showing a big im
prorement in her play. Her first ser
vice. i deadlr. when she can got.lt
placed, and yesterday she scored two
clean aces in one game. Her second
service yesterday was not particularly
hard to handle, and this fact rob her
of an opportunity to score ortener.
Mere at Ease
The Tounar feminine star is begin'
ning to get over the nervousness that
was first exhibited, and at times yes
tftrdar aha anneared as if she was
playing a practise match; making bar
drives with an ananaon iw oruugui
many points to her side.
Miss Vicars was handicapped fe
terrfaT in 'not being able to play the
drives 'at her feet and-although she
covered the court in wonderrui styie,
did not appear to get away fast en
ough on close net shots.

Ban Johnson's Prediction That
All Minors Will Suspend is
Flouted By Leader
In a statement issued recently Ban
Johnson of the American League made
the prediction that all minor leagues
would be out of business next season,
and that only the major leagues
would be able to play their schedules.
In his opinion the majors are due for
big losses unless - they get support
from the government. War condi
tions and the spirit of thrift which has
resulted, from them will, says John
son,, bring about this situation to the
President Baum of the Coast
League expressed the opinion that
Johnson was taking a pessimistic
view that Is not at all justified.
1 have Just returned from the con
vention of the National Association of
Minor Leagues at Louisville," ' said
Banm, "and I found that the majority
off the magnates of the minors are
more hopeful than they were a year
ago. Some of the leagues' had a hard
time of It during the 191? season, no
tably the" International League. The
Texas League, however enjoyed one
of the most prosperous seasons to its
history. So did the "Southern Associ
ation. . There is no ' reason for sup
posing that either of these leagues
win be compelled to go out of busi
ness.-, .
"Of course I don't know what other
leagues may do, but this . I can say

will start its season as usual, and it
will play: out its schedule. There has

Honolulu Boy at University of Wisconsin Says That War Has
Been Boon & Football and Has Furnished Material .for Men
Who Were Going "Over the Top'Real Piayers Are Being
Developed in the Colleges of the Middle West This Year
MADISON, cWis Nov. 17. That
the. great American intercollegiate
game of football will not be obliterat
ed by the greater national game of
war in the Middle West, at least, is
now assured by the success of the
first war football season which is
now-rapidly coming to. an end. Indeed
the' success of the season has been
such that Just today Walter Ecker
Ball, the famous football expert of
the Chicago Tribune, comes out with
the statement that "the war has been
a boon to football."
. "That more football is being played
In different sections of the country
despite the war is being shown every
week, when army or' naval training
teams go into action either against
each other or some college eleven,''
writes EckersalL
Boon to Football
"The" war has been a boon to foot
ball. Men who have been called to
army service and who were eligible
to represent their respective universi
ties or. colleges are clamoring for an
opportunity to don the moleskins an J
go into action against any sort ot
team, whether- the opponents be
camp or college elevens.
"In order to furnish some sort of
recreation those In charge, of - the
camps are doing their utmost to help
the men who have or could have won
their spurs on the college gridiron.
After being deprived of collegiate af
filiations teams have been organized
at the different camps with the re-

Game Desired
In these words, particularly in this
last paragraph, Eckersall has" express
ed just why football, above most
other sports, is desired in war tim
ana js going to be .continued with
further impetus as each week's games
are piayea. i
'Football trains men for service in
the army as few other sports do, it is
asserted, sad forampyi;c4ioa of this

dogma followers of this sport point
proudly v to the host of football stars
wha-'have Jumped to the service oi
the country in the crisis, have filled
the reserve officers training camps,
and are now in France.
An army officer at Wisconsin re
xently told certain students . that it
was his belief that the rigorous train
ing of just one football season was
easily worth what the average man
got in the army In a whole year.
Popular college opinion i3 almost
ready now to accept this as an axiom.
At the opening. of the season this
fall Wisconsin with nine other univer
sities of the conference, faced the
much mooted question-.of whether men
best physically 'fft for service in the
army should derote their time to the
sport of football. Professorial pro
tests of course larose, but the sports
man's belief eventually prevailed, and
the university efetered upon the season
somewhat pessimistically.
Coaches Come Back
"Big John" Richards, a famous Bad
ger athlete of about ten years ago,
was brought back to Wisconsin to
take over the coaching for Dr. Paul!

the sport with small hopes, pointed to
the fact that all the old stars had gone
to war, and that the teams his year
were to consist of a bunch of kids.
Each day's progress brought revela

history and an ardent patriot, "and I
can say with assurance that there Is
