an elusive thing for beginners It seems either to crowd in upon them and force them to miss or else it sails above their heads or beyond their reach as they rush at it These things make tennis a difficult game to learn because so very much is dependent upon coordina tion But even after this has been acquired there are cer tain things that make the game seem easierOne of these is freedom of play For example if you were attempting to play a forehand shot and discovered that you were continually hitting on THOMPSON AND FIELDS ARE ONJDGE Welterweights Meet In San Francisco Tomorrow tho wood or at the throat of the racket you would probably shift your grip a bit or watch the bull more closely In nine cases out of ten the difficulty would be due to faulty body position You might be crowding the ball so much as to make a clean shot Impossible H is well to remember in this case that by stepping from the bull sufficiently to allow a free swlny by the shoulder nnd listen to the swlsli UK The last will lie decidedly louder This illustrates Just the differ ence In the force of a stroke hit with a stiff arm and one with a bent arm Tho difficulty in using tho lust type of stroke Is that It requires a certain amount oC skill of the arm and by hitting approxI In hand ling tho body so as to keep Imately a foot in front of you tbla It as free from tho arm as possible trouble will be overcome and more i t think everyone ngrees that force will be added to tho stroke AVIlllam Johnston hltH the hardest JACKIE FIELDS and Young J Jark Thompson have com pleted training for their ten

score an easy 39 to 0 vic tory The Cards started scoring T4 1114 I early and displayed a deceptive T4 1833 I lack which had the Tayaeee on J defensive throughout forehand and yet at the height of his game he weighed less limn 130 pounds He hits tho shot with a dockledly bent elbow relying prin cipally upon timing and his fore arm for speed His body weight IB erfectly applied hut there in too ttle of It to attribute to it the remendous paco that his shot arrles The freest easiest appearing troko is usually tho best and for lie reaaon that more pace can be pplled with loss effort It has al vays seemed to me that tho back land is the most easily executed hot In the game and for this regi on As you swing to make the troke from a well behind he approaching hall and then across tlie body to a good follow the finish of tho stroke xnd its controlling there a no contact with tlie body In he forehand one must manage his ody so as to prevent hit nrm rom pushing against it nnd de ractlng from the forccfulness o the shot A properly executisc mckhond is n more graceful sho n every Instance than a properly executed forehand in my mind Manuel Is one of the most agile tennis players in the gxmo today and It la a joy to watch him execute a back hand At the finish of the swinK he Is a study in grace and his backhand is one of best shots Jt need not be weak because It Is graceful It can lie made B great deal stronger than a clumsy stroke I have used groundstrokes as a Illustration of my subject bccrvus it is In these strokes that mos bodycrowding Is done Tho serv Ice seerns to be a naturally free stroke for most people and while freedom of play applies lo vol leys theae strokes are more essen tially produced by means of cor rect timing and application of weight Mile Suzanne Lenglen the great French player makes many of her strokes with poor footwork This according to most exponents ot the game is absolutely and yet the success of her strokes is well known The reason for her success Is the beautiful manner in which she handles her body mak ing it serve Its purpose In every shot Where her feet are in a faulty position her body is always going Into tho stroke in such a way that it aids her in giving tho shot both power and direction This after all is the essential thing It Is a mistaken idea in ten nis that the thing most diffi cult to do is the most cul The fine strokes of the great players are Just an easy to execute if one takes the trouble to discover the meth od of cxcecutlon There Is no furious winding up nnd pound Ing the ball It in timing and the use of the allImportant body that makes cannon balls and this Is not beyond the limit of many players abil ity Strive for grace lends to freedom of play and gives greater for knockout t Fields despite Thompsons sen atlonal victories In Chicago rings ecently still rules a 10to8 fa orlte and there Is plenty of Fields noney In sight Many close fol owers of the boxing game think hey are stretching It

Lough ran and Jack Gross meet in a tenround contest at the Phil lies ball park Monday even ing But more important is the fact that this contest marks Loughrans official debut as a heavyweight seek ing to fill the vacant shoes Gene Tunney left behind him The fighting champion of the light heavyweight has hud success with the big fellows In the past and has utmost confidence In his to avoid Gross dangerous left hand and continue on through the ranks of those nominated for a whir at the heavyweight title By no stretch of the Imagina tion can Gross be considered a set up for any the big fellows Gross has not been beaten in three years of campaigning Ho has IE knock out victims to his credit and fought a draw with Roberto Ro bertl No matter what the fans may think of Robertls latter by the way meets George Godfrey Wednesday Giant Italian wages a hard battle and an even break with him is btter than some of the other heavyweights been able to ac complish Gross Is qualified to tackle tho

part ners headed by Frankis Caw Icy who Joe Smith expects will fill Loiifrhrnns shoes nfler the latter leaves the light heavy weight class It Is often saifl that Loughran Is not big enough to compete among the big men In the heavyweight division Not many know that the Phlladelphlau has had a hard time scaling down to 17B pounds during the past year Loughran ln but 25 years old and stands elx feet tall There Is enough room on his frame to pack several more pounds with out losing his speed and It would not be at all surprising It he weighs In over 180 pounds Monday after noon Jimmy Slattery and Leo Lomskl have protested Loughrans entry into the heavyweight clnsn on the ground that the Philudelphlan lias contracts to fulfill with them The New York boxing commission will not countenance

unfortunately found it impossible to return from his eastern trip in time to compete but Miss Helen Wills world of the fair sex will demonstrate how she got that way in two exhibition sets against one of the French playera Henri Cochet known in France as the ball boy of la 27 years old and in the opinion of nuiny critics including Tilden Is now the worlds greatest player Cochet first came to the front in 1021 when he won the military Championship of France In 1921 he won the socalled world cov ered court championship at St Morltz In 1D2C he won the French singles titles defeating Richards and In straight sets In tho latter year Cochet won the Wimbledon doubles iaircd with Brugnon and de feated Tilden hi the Untted States national championships in the fourth round In 1927 Cochet won the singles at Wimbledon defeating in suc cession Hunter Tilden and Borota after losing the first two sets to each He was a member of the victorious Davis Cup team defeat ing Johnston In the cup play This year Cochet paired with Brugnon won the Wimbledon doubles defeating Patterson end Hawks the Australian stars 1311 04 64 in the finals This record of victories over the foremost stars of the various na

visiting trio Is one of Frances most promising younger players He defeated Cochet In the senil flnals at Marseilles in 1927 and represented his country at Wimbledon in the same year Pierre Laundry the third repre sentative ot the tricolor has won many tournaments In his native country and has victories to his credit over Brugnon and Borota In 1D2G He defeated Harada Chinas leading player at
