This is the first tournament of the kind ever held here and gives _ promise of a great success. It has notfeen definitely settled whether this tournament will be played on the 4th of July each year or not. The tournament itself is a fixture, but its date for the future has not yet been settled. ¦ The coast championship singles next year will probably be played, in July, while the State tournament will come off in September with the doubles. This change of dates is due to the fact that a number of cracks from the north and south have promised to participate if the singles and doubles are played simultane ously. . Considerable discussion has been going on ol late as to who should rank directly after the Whitneys In the Calif ornia' Ten nis Club. To settle this question a tour nament will be held in the near future on tht: local courts. The idea is to pick the eight best men in the club. and let them play aground robin tournament. In this way each player would have a- match with every man entered and the one win ning the most matches would rank third. The men who will probably be picked are M. B. Collier, Merle Johnson, Norman Hodgkinson. Drummond McGavin, Harold Crowell. Ray Cornell. Chester Smith and Grant Smith. Al Rosenberg would easily get a place among the eight, but he ls out of the game for good and will not be able to play. This event will probably.be start ed a week from Sunday, but as it is to be a round robin affair it will take several days to finish It. ;, R. N. Whitney surprised 'everybody by the game he put up against his brother George in the finals of the tournament last Saturday. When he is at his best his game is but little behind that of the champion, but the main trouble Is that he |s able to play this game only once in a longtime, and then he cannot last more than two sets. ., . ¦ . --...- Are on the Programme of Events.
