The singles matches in the fall tournament for the University tennis championship will begin on Jarvis and Soldiers Fields this afternoon. The entry of 114 is a decrease of 37 from last year. The championship court will be reserved for the matches which promise to be the best in each round, and notice will be given in the CRIMSON as to who shall occupy this court.
Courts will be reserved and no charge will be made for their use. Balls, however, must be furnished by the contestants. The matches will be for the best two out of three sets, except in the semifinal and final rounds, in which the matches will be for the best three out of five. Matches must be played on the day scheduled or else defaulted, except in case of rain, when they will be played on the day following. Contestants may claim default if their opponents fall to appear within one-half hour of the schedules time. Score cards have been placed in the CRIMSON Office, and the results of matches must be recorded by the winners each day. In case the result of any match is not posted by 7 o'clock in the evening of the day of the match, both contestants will be disqualified. The pairings, together with the times and places for the matches, are given below.
