The management of the Harvard Lawn tennis Association have asked for suggestions from the tennis players of the college as to an improved system of assigning and managing the courts located on the grounds of the university. The call is a most timely one, for none of the methods which have been tried hitherto have proved successful. The old system, by which a man "pre-empted" a court, and held possession of it during his entire course at college, resulted in stirring up nothing but ill feeling ; an effect far from beneficial to the best interests of the game. This state of affairs was changed somewhat when the present plan of assignment was adopted, but the complaints which are constantly being received show too plainly that the desired end has not been reached. Some fruiting blows have recently been dealt to the tennis interest ; the severest being the reduction in the number of available courts caused by the construction of the new track and diamond on Holmes field. The defeat too of our representatives at Hartford cannot fail to produce a depressing effect. If, then, this sport, on which so many undergraduates depend for the principal means of exercise, is to be maintained in our midst, every facility for its pursuit must be afforded. We therefore invite the tennis men to offer, through our columns their suggestions as to any ways in which the existing scheme of management may be changed for the better.
