"How am 11 going?" he asked In his corner. "Holding him even. Kid," Ferguson told him. In the second rcund, the Kid was cut up some. In addition, Bradley had floored him for a nine-count. Again, he asked how he was going Again lie was told he was still even. Tlic third round was slaughter, according to Ferry. Poor Fredericks nose was bashed, his face was bloody, an eye was cut, and he knocked down three times. Wearily, he staggered to his corner whei the bell rang. Again, he asked the question. "Kid. you're way ahead! You've got him tired out. Slay in then and fight," Joe shouted. 'What! I'm ahead!" asked the puzzled Kid. "Well then, I'm milttini right now, Joe, while I'm ahead." Love, Tennis, Etc. No less a personage than E. Uailcy. president, of the United Etales Lawn Tennis Association thinks that since George I.ott, Wil reer Allison and Johnny Vwn Ryi have been recently married, an entered iipon business careers, th association should encourage them to concentrate upon ti'.eir c and not tempt them to devote sev cral months in 1031 to the playin of the game on international teams. It begins to appear there is ur- C.cnt p.eed for seme kind of "stay- Einglc-and-bring-back-the - Davis- cup" movement. Johnny Ltoeg. national singles champion of last year, also has turned to business pursuits and is reported to have bscn smitten with the idea that the life of a family bread-winner isn't such a painful thought after all. It is not hard to remember that Helen Wills, queen supreme in the field of women's tennis, clnngsd her name to Moody some time ago and expressed the thought that international tennis honors could go hang so long as there were e. b; fried for Mr. Mocdy.

Clill Suiter, a Tulane University student, is only 19 but he is the south's ranking player, and during ;he six years In which he has ap- jxared in competition lie has won the national intercollegiate crown, the Longwood Bowl title, the Eastern Grass Courts title, and has beaten such players as lilden, Mercur and Bell.
