The sixteenth annual tournament for the Harvard interscholastic tennis championship in singles will begin on Jarvis Field at 9 o'clock this morning. Owing to the large number of entries, probably only the preliminary round will be played today, leaving the semi-finals and finals for Monday. During the tournament preference in courts will be given to contestants, all of whom must report to N. W. Niles '09 at Jarvis Field at 9 o'clock this morning.
Prizes will be given to the winner and the runner-up. The winner will also have the right, as Harvard interscholastic champion, to play for the national interscholastic championship at Newport in August. A championship shield will be presented to the school winning the greatest number of points, each match actually won counting one point.
