LOTS OF BUSINESS
FOR TENNIS SOLONS
Executive Committee Con
fronted With Dig Protfriiiiiint!
for Coming Meeting.
When the executive committee of the
United titates National Lawn Tennis As
sociation meets early next month It will
find enough business scheduled to pro
vide for a decidedly active session. One
of the first matters to claim attention
will be the report of the ranking com
mittee. This Li awaited with a great
deal of Interest, and although many fore
casts of the probable ranking have been
made there Is nothing definite as to the
first ten players of the countrv until this
committee a report Is mads public.
Next In Interest will be The considera
tion of proposed changes In the amateur
rule. The recommendations of the ex
ecutive committee have already been et
forth In a letter over the signature of
President George T. Adee. This has becu
sent to all members of the association
and to s great many players and will be
discussed and fiut In final form In re
sponse to sgggestlons that have followed
the publication of the letter. Then the ,
recommendations will be ready for the
action of the delegates at the annual
meeting of tho association, which tukes
place In February.
No leas Important for the future of the
game will be a consideration of tho
Junior and boys tournaments, under
taken for the first time this year. Thcce
were held on a sectional basts during
1916, only one of the ten sections In the
United States falling to hold a properly
sanctioned event. About sixty-five tour
naments for Juniors and bo)a were held
under the association's auspices, mora
than 1,600 players competing.
MT Create Centres,
This is felt to have bton a very fa
vorable beginning, but changes have been
suggested which may develop still more
widespread Interest In this branch of the
game. One plan Is to create a number
of tennis centres throughout the country
where preliminary tournaments may be
held Instead of working on the basis of
sectional championships as preliminary
to the play for the national title. The
effect obviously would be to broaden the
Interest In events for tho younger play
ers by creating more of them and having
them easily accessible. It Is possible
also that somo changes In the age limits
may be made, lowering these both for
Juniors and boys. The present limits are
10 for the former and 17 for the latter.
Another matter which la bound to be
debated thoroughly Is the advisability of
a Changs In the method or holding the
doubles championship. Homo men advo
cate continuing the present arrange
ment. Others would have the champions
play through, thus eliminating the chal
lenge round. Stilt another suggestion Is
that there might be one tournament, the
winners of which would bn champions.
und another proposal advocates Increasing
tho number of sections eligible to send
teams to the preliminary championship.
There Is every probability also that the
resolution adopted last year requiring
me member of a team to live In the sec
tion the team represents may U.
brought up for further discussion.
There Is also In prospect a considera
tion of the advisability of admitting new
sections to tho tennis association, with
sectional delegates on the executive com
mittee. This body conducts the affairs
of the association and Includes the presi
dent, vice-president, secretary, treasurer
and sixteen other members, ten repre
senting the sections Into which the na
tional association divides the United
States geographically and six being dele
gates at large. 1'roposed new sections
embrace Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and
Missouri and the Missouri Valley und
tho Pacific northwest covering Washing
ton, Oregon and all of the orthem halt
of Idaho.
As to ZVatlssml Event.
There will be at least two reports In
connection with the national champion
ship, for tho executive committee will
receive the ofllclal report of the receipts
and expenses for this event, and In ad
dition the report of Julian 8. Myrlck,
president of the West Side Tennis Club,
who was appointed a special committee
to suggest qualifications for entry In the
national championship. Of somewhat
similar nature will be tlm report of
Palmer E. Presbrcy of Boston, who was
made a committee to consider the ques
tion of players belonging to clubs not
affiliated with the National Association
competing in tournaments sanctioned by
iha National Association.
Most of these matters will require
much aeiioeraiion mi '" in ui ino
commlttse, but tho schedule of subjects
to be brought to its attention by Presi
dent Adee Includes a number of others
no less Interesting. For Instance, there
Is the suggestion of William A. Lamed
with respect to the foot fault rule, that
fnnt fault bo called a let unless com
mitted twice In succession on the same
service. International tennis as It con
cerns the Paris cup will claim atten
tion, although of course no competition

FORDHAM PRIMED FOR
GEORGETOWN CONTEST
Election Day Games Will Have
Bipr Bearing on Catholic
Championship.
Tho past week's practice on the Ford
ham gridiron strengthened the outlook
for one of those old time Fordliam
(leorgelown games on election day, In
which each eleven Is very much In the
tight until tho ilnal whlstlo. Tho battle
practically will decide the championship
of tho Catholic college gridiron in the
Kutt.
I'ordham has not defeated Georgetown
clnco 190), und the best It has done was
to tie the Southerners in 1009. This sea
miii the Catholic collegians have tho beat
teams in their history nnd each has
phi) ed excellent football to date, (Icorgi
town In the favorite, but Fonlham has
bi'en.wotklng until dark for the past two
weeks mastrilng a deceptive attack Unit
Head Coach (largan claims will take
Oenrgctowti by storm
Tlm Fordliam mentor coached nt
Georgetown two seasons ugn and has
planned a defence for (lllroy's end runs
which In, believes will check the (Icinge
loiwi star. Clllioy Is Just one-half of
fliorgntown's nffenilve power. Hu ripped
the Fnrdham team to pieces l.it season.
Denipsey, who played with Oem gctuwn
Inst season nnd inndo a reputation in Die
Princeton game by his end runs, will
play against his former teammates In
tho Fordliam lineup. Ills kicking will
bo missed by (leorgelown nnd eatlly be
the feutute of the game.
President Joseph A. Mulry of Ftirdlmni
University has nt ranged a reception for
tnu fordliam and Georgetown alumni
after the contest, and It is expected 40li
Georgetown rooters will occupy their sec
tion of tho cheering stand. Acrnmmn-
IjtlotiK have been made for S.fliHl people
aim me game promise to be thu biggest
athletic event Fordliam has ever sta,'il
Should Forilhiini win ft inn oVorue-
town them is u probability that lungers
ami Fonlham win play u post seat-on
gaino ut Die Polo Grounds for the cham
pionship of Ureater New York colleges.
This bus never been settled In former
years, although advocated by tho under
graduate of each college, having u team
within a rudlus of fifty miles from Now

With tho election day cluli tourna
ments out of tho way, metropolitan golf
ers wilt begin seeking other worlds to
connuer, or nt leat ninny of them will
hlko to fairer climes for n winter of
high class competition. Already the
Carolina courses nio prepared lor tho
Influx of the .Soitlicrn vtnttors, and this
season California Is working double
rhlfts to prepare new fairways, velvety
greens nnd attractive cUbhouses In
hopes that part of thu ll.tstcrn gulf con
tingent will bo attracted to tho Golden
State.
Tho Plnehurst links already are as
well patronized an they usually are In
early December. Thu reason for this
Is that numerous New York devotees of
the undent nnd loyal g.uno havo estab
lished residence:! nt PltiehuiKt and have
decided to mnko thu trip South a little
early. Thu big ciowd has decided tho
officials of Plnehurst Count! y Club to
begin Us tournaments inrly, und tint
llrst of uny importance will bo started
Friday.
It Is not alwa) those who get there
first who piny the hi t golf, but tho
transition from Northern to Southern
courses usually means heaping troubles
upon one's lic.id. and for this reason few
of tho travellers who go South this week
can liopo to do much In tho opening
tournaments. Kapcclally at Plnehurst
will tho stranger Hud It hard to become
a regular, ns new pitfalls in abund
unco haw bi.-cu dug and tho club Is pre
pared to exhibit a number of strange
and terrif)ing h.uardi. llNpcrts agree
that a couplo of wicks practice will be
needed even by thu experts before Plne
hurst will be familiar.
