To test the idea we are trying it here. "A GOLF BUG" Football is my biggest hobb'l Rascball holds my interest, too. But when I started jtlajiinft .Vy technique went "taboo." It's outright conception Of the trickiest kind of scheme You sock n ball, U'atch it fall, Then hunt it on the nrecn. Folks am quite egotistical, And optimistical, In believing that in six more years, I'll make a "hole in two." KAY CRAMER. And we have another contribution from a Salmagundi fan. She sent in the following Joke, which she declares she has laughed at for years. Here it is! An old maid was holding her parrot on her shoulder one eve- when the Deacon called on her. As he sat clown beside her he nsald, "Is that a parrot you have The old maid blushed crimson as she answered, "Did you think It was a rat. I used to think that a boxer was great when he boasted that so-and-so was afraid to meet him In the ring. But wonder.

Seeding and the draw for positions in the meet will be done Friday night at the Hamilton park field- house while play in the tournament will be started at 2 p.m., Saturday. Bleachers seating approximately 500 persons are to be erected imme- diately adjacent to the main courts of play. This will afford both a con- venience and opportunity for tennis fans to witness their favorites be- sides affording opportunity for fans to see women players, net stars who rank among the best in the city. Eight Courts Available A total of eight courts will be avail- able for tournament competition. They are being watered and rolled daily in preparation for the classic. To prevent deep scratches and ruts of any kind in the playing surfaces, tennis fans wearing any kind of shoes but smooth rubber are being kept off the courts. As was the case last year, the clas- sic will be staged in two divisions again this year. Those who will play in the division of the tournament which has been sanctioned by the Chicago Tennis as- sociation will be members of clubs playing team tennis under the sched- ule of the association or women who ha've played in a sanctioned meet. The open division of the tourna- ment will be for women and girls without sanctioned tournament ex- perience, non-members of clubs, and members of clubs not belonging1 to the association. Recognition Available to Stars By sanctioning one part of the meet, recognition is now available to the city's stars and club members who will enter the KOL-THTOIV.S- UC-ON- OMIST meet this year. Women and girls placing near the top in the sanctioned division of the tournament can thereby better their rankings In the city and western as- sociations. Adopting last year's plans, tourna- ment officials will stage singles cham- pionships only in each division. Promptness Is Advantage Promptness on the part of the players In entering the classic will make for promptness in the staging of the meet. This will add to the convenience of the entrant in getting matches played at the time best suit- ed to the contestant. Two handsome silver cups will comprise the major trophies to be awarded to the winners of the meet. The victor In the sanctioned divi- sion of the classic will receive pos- session for one year of a 12-inch cup mounted on a four-inch base. Last season this cup was won by Berenice "Jackie" Ayers of the Allerton club. 10-Inch Cup for Novice Winner The other cup, a 10-Inch trophy mounted on a three-Inch base, will be awarded to the winner of the open or novice division of the tournament. Josephine Scarnavack of the Hamil- ton park club, won possession of this cup last year. Both of the cups are three-legged trophies and both were donated by Jody Johnston, manager of the W. G. Tcgtmeicr Sporting Goods store at 6435 Halsted st. They were first placed in competition last season. In addition to the two cups, a medal will be given to the runner-up in each of the two divisions of play. 1. There will be two divisions of competition, sanctioned and open. The former will be for members of tennis clubs affiliated with the Chi- cago or Western Tennis associations and the latter for non-members of clubs or players who have never com- peted in a sanctioned tournament. 2.
