C SECAR Table Tennis Reaches Clinton in Sweep, of Nation; Class Planned; At Columbia Recreation Center Table tennis, better known as ping pong, has been developing interest by surprising leaps and. bounds as a national indoor sport. A wholesome and Interesting sport, It is a game of skill for youug and old, a game that requires a keen eyeand a nimble brain. Of all the games In which a ball-Is used, table tennis is, by all odds, the "spinnest." In all sports, practically speaking, where a ball is used, there is some sor of "English," "stuff," or "hook" employed, whether it be billiards, baseball or tennis. The small white celluloid sphere, known in table tennis as a ping pong ball, weighing 07.., and scarcely the thickness of paper, can perform more wlerd, mysterious and rapid-fire revolutions than any other ball used- In 'sport.; Any' 'pers6n can make the ball spin in the course of its-flight, but it remains a matter of personal skill to outsmart an op One Opinion FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH By Davis J. Walsh NEW YORK, Jan. 13 (Although! Cincinnati Is away abend after two years and St. Louis Is about to meke a play for the same kind of money, night baseball, on a home-and-home basis, is five years away from the major leagues, Ford C. Frick, president oT the National League, estimated today. A few clubs, he added, may espouse the Idea In the next few years; others may follow more guardedly. "And," said he, "with ome of- the more conservative, It may be never. Well, maybe never, It times went tough again a man could change bis mind." The conservatives, which is something be didn't say, are the two New York clubs and the American League in general, barring the Browns, who are prepuring to install the lights, and the Philadelphia Athletics, who may do so. 'If Shlbe park Is lighted, .this season," , Frick went . on, . "1 believe Gerry Nugent will take the Phillies over there for bis allotment of seven . night games., Otherwise,, there will be no night hascbull in Philadelphia, as the Phillies' park is Impracticable for lighting. Charles F. Adams and Bob Quinn are for it up In Huston, but they have the climate and the short summer .Season to contend with. . The Cubs and fi: rates seem to be more or less neutral, mi the subject." In other words, It-'would seem thai, the best way to bring about night baHeball, on a generul program,' would, be positively, tiie worst way.. ; ,, We'd have to have another depression.

The only way this is accomplished is to sere in a. tricky manner. .There,, are various ways of serving, A side-spinning serve will get an opponent's "goat," very quickly. Then there's the faBt low-spinning serve, which is tricky too, as the ball scarcely clearH the net when the ball is properly served. In other words, try to get your opponent out of position. The results are surprising. This adds to the interest of the game. There are various ways of gripping your racquet (or' paddle) which will produce astonishing results. Some players prefer the pen-bolder grip, but most effective is the teiuils grip. There are many other interesting points to the game of table tennis. If you are interested in table ten riis, here is an opportunity to leu'rn the game. The recreation program will start a table tennis class on January 18 on Monday and Friday 5'POSE MR- DA.N bj it ie ho THAT AM ORPHKN T r. 1CS.C 1.

Perry T. -Jones, ' secretary of the Southern California Tennis association, today came out with a denunciation of the extensive southern off-season tournament schedule which Is keeping Budge busy In Florida, Bermuda and other resort spots. . "Budge is following In the Identical footsteps of Vines the yenr Ellsworth blew up, with such a hang." said Jones. ' Stnlcncss Feared "It's a great mistake, permitting Budge to rlay an extensive schedule In the dead of winter. He'll leave.

Btale. boy. ' f . . "When he left here a couple of weeks ago, Budge was going to play In only the Miamt-Biltmore tournament to keep a promise made last year. That was all well .and good, but officials of other .tournaments evidently are talking him Into staying south and playing ithe resort tournaments. "Budge faces the great chance of a lifetime to become the world's premier tennis player and he's muffing It."

And Max was the only guy he ever fought who wasn't afraid of him. Believe me, I'm not afraid of him. Why should I be? He's got just two hands like anybody else.

And after I flatten him, I'll do the same both for Schmeling and Brad-dock it they get into the ring with me." The writer took a second look to make sure he wasn't being kidded but the young man was deadly in earnest. He really seems to believe he can lick anybody. DR. B. H. SELLERS DENTIST 249. South.

Pans who were 'fortunate enough to be present at the,; sports palace yesterday evening Witnessed the most exciting struggle that has taken place this year on local hardwood. The Montezuma team and their -supporters never gave up, and Clinton partisans' never felt safe. When Berrlsford knotted the score at 9-all three minutes after the intermission with an tinder-basket flip, everyone was on the edge of his or her seat, and the crowd arose to its feet as the Cats assumed the lead for the first time by means of a long, looping field goal by Dunn.

Working front a guard position, be started play after play and slashed through after them despite his great handicap, lack of height, On the defensive side, he guarded so closely and. effectively that bis committing only one personal foul in the course of the tilt was something to marvel at Ha also did bis bit for the scoreboard with two long field goals and one point from the foul line. ... . - , "Moose" Phillips played a bang- up game at center in bis usual rig orous style and grabbed individual scoring honors with seven points The Aztecs using a great number of up-ln-the-air alnd ' one-band shots from- the first, missed frequently.
