Eastern Tennis Tournament
After a lapse of some years, the
annual tennis tournament was re
vived at the Normal, In the
Fourth Annual event, which be
gan on July 4, and is still con
tinuing. Three events have been
begun women's singles, men's
singles, and men's doubles.
There was most interest In the
women's singles, no fewer than
ten entering. Some of the play
ing was as clean and exciting as i
any that has been seen here. The
match between Miss Naomi Bal
lou and Miss Margaret Evans
was hotly contested, going to 64,
6-8, 6-3. Miss Elizabeth 'Thomp
son was a third who contested
closely with Miss Lewis for the
Miss Evans lost
out in spite of plucky and skilful
playing, and Miss Ballou gave in
to physical weakness just before
the finals, which went to Miss
Lewis. Pullen, Burnam, Haley,
Davidson, Reid and Grinstead
were the entries in the men's
doubles. This was hard fought
throughout, interest being great
on account of the offer for the
first time of a $25.00 loving cup
by the members of the faculty.
Pullen fought well toward the
top, but met his second defeat at
Reid's hands in a hot match, 64,
0-6, 7-5. Reid was in turn defeat
ed by Burnam for the cup, 6-2,
6-3. With the prize of a perma

The Kentucky Utilities Com
pany Announce Free Elec
tric Fan Service to
Free electric fan service for the
benefit of the sick is offered to
the public this summer by the
Kentucky Utilities Company, ac
cording to Mr. Geo. Bogard, the
Local Manager. The offer the
Company makes in effect is that
electric fans and, where necessary,
the current to operate, will be
furnished without cost to persons
seriously ill who are unable to
pay for the service. The only
conditions are that the attending
physician must certify to the rea
sonable necessity for fan service,
and to the patient's inability to
afford it. The offer, of course,
applies where the sick room is
within reach of the Company's
"The reason for making condi
tions of any kind is for the ob
vious purpose of protecting the
free electric fan for the use of
those who really need it and can
not afford it," says Manager Bo
gard. "It is a public welfare
proposition and is evidence of the
general policy of our Company.
No hard and fast rules are in
forced regarding the free service,
our aim being to make it do as
much good as possible. During
the summer months there are al
ways cases where the use of an
electric fan greatly improves the
condition of the patient, and
sometimes represents the narrow
margin between life and death.
"This offer has been made and
received with approval and at
once utilized by the physicians in
other cities where our Company
operates." . 29-2t
