TENNIS PLAYERS OUT SHORTLY

Promising Men Available for Team.--Courts on Jarvis Repaired.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Trials for the University tennis team will be held immediately after the spring recess, and prospects for a successful season are bright. Last year, the team won five out of six of its matches, losing to Yale by one point. The intercollegiate title was won by Princeton. This year, however, the outlook is more promising, abundant material being offered for the formation of a strong eight.

Of the men who won their insignia last year, C. S. Cutting, last year's captain, L. I. Grinnell, and A. M. Hyde have graduated. Five members of last year's team, however, remain--Captain A. J. Lowrey '13, J. C. Devereux '14, N. H. Smith '13, E. H. Whitney '14, and E. H. Woods '14; in addition to these all the members of the 1915 class team will be available, including M. A. Hofer, E. S. Draper, D. Kimball, and W. M. Washburn, who was ranked in the second class this summer by the National Ranking Committee. Among the other promising candidates are E. R. Hastings '14, O. Williams '14, and Q. A. S. McKean '13.

In the intercollegiate meet next summer, the team will be greatly strengthened by the presence of two men who are not eligible for the spring matches: R. N. Williams '16, who is ranked as the second best player in the United States, and J. J. Armstrong '14, who won the Western Intercollegiate Championship last summer. He will not be able to play this spring, since this is his first year in College.

Courts Will Be Put in Repair.

Last year 13 of the courts at Jarvis Field were resurfaced with a mixture of stone, dust, and clay, which resulted in a great improvement. This spring the remaining 13 courts will be resurfaced. The materials are already on hand, and work will begin as soon as the weather permits. The 13 courts not under repair will probably be ready to play on the last week in March.
