The annual spring interclass tennis tournament will begin at 2 o'clock this afternoon at Jarvis Field and will continue daily until finished. The number of entries this year is 107, which is 59 more than last year. The greatest gain is in the Freshman class, which has 50 participants against 17 by the Freshman class last year.
All undergraduates who entered have been divided into four divisions by classes. The men in each division will play for their class championship, and the four winners will enter the final series for the College championship. The winner and runner-up will each receive a cup.
In the preliminary rounds, the matches will be for the best two out of three sets; in the finals, for the best three out of five. Deuce and advantage sets are optional only in the semi-finals and finals. Matches must be played on the day scheduled, or defaulted. If a player is more than 30 minutes late, he will lose by default. All contestants in the tournament have first right to the use of courts.
Score cards have been placed on the north wall of the CRIMSON office, where the results of the matches must be posted, before 6 o'clock on the day of play, by the winner; otherwise, both contestants will be considered out of the tournament.
