For some years tennis players have clamored for a system whereby the University tennis courts on Jarvis Field might be engaged in advance. Now that such a system has been devised and is in operation, many men, with characteristic human fickleness, are grumbling about the change and want to return to the old order of things.

As the new system has been in use but two weeks and is not yet clearly understood by many players, it obviously cannot work smoothly. This is a poor reason for urging its immediate abandonment. It should be given an extended trial and a fair chance to prove its worth.
