We are sorry to see that a number of tennis players violate the rules of the association by playing without tennis shoes. It is indispensable for the improvement of our courts that all who play should wear tennis shoes, and we hope that no one from thoughtlessness will disregard the request of the association on this point. It is an injustice to the other members of the association for some members to totally refuse to be guided by rules intended for the common good. It is necessary for the association to become a success that it should meet with the hearty and thorough co-operation of the students in carrying out the provisions of the organization. Every player must feel that the association has tried to consult the interests of the entire body of students in framing the rules, and that upon him individually depends in a large measure the success of these rules. We feel sure that every player who takes the trouble to think of the matter will realize the importance of wearing tennis shoes, and the importance of his ready acquiescence to the rules.
