The fall tennis tournament for the University championship in singles, which was prevented by rain from starting last Friday, will begin on Jarvis and Soldiers Fields today at 2 o'clock. Matches will be decided by the best two out of three sets, except in the semi-finals and finals, when there will be three out of five. No postponment of matches will be allowed and contestants who do not appear within 15 minutes of the appointed time will be defaulted. Men playing on Jarvis Field must post their scores on the chart there before 6 o'clock on the day of their match. Men playing on Soldiers Field must drop their scores into a box, provided and marked for that purpose, in the CRIMSON Office before 6.30 o'clock. Failure to do this will mean that both contestants will be defaulted.
Entries for the doubles closed Saturday. Matches will begin on Wednesday, the places and times to be announced in Wednesday's CRIMSON.
