SIX SLYTHEVJLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAYAPRILl, 1934 IN BEHALF OF THE OLD MASTER MAN Q WAR California Giant Improving Rapidly; Certain To Be Asset ,lo Team BY STUART CAMERON IJnilrtl 1'rx-Es SiKirts IJlllur NEW YORK <UP> — A f<?» months ugo, when R. Morris Wil- llnms WHS named to captain tin 1634 American Davis Cup team ];is chances of mouMIni; ft team which would uven rcnc-h Hie Inter- zoiie finnls fcrniert very vrry slim ir.rtrcd. Yet with tne 'announcement I>1' tiic United States Liiwn Tennis Association of Uie men who will form the nucleus of ihp 1034 learn there Is n dlsllnct uir of optimism In American tennis circles. The answer for this Is 0 feet, 3 indies of young California manhood by the naiiu 1 of Ijestrr Sloc- t™. Since the lime Williams was given the captaincy. Stoefcn has come along titlllliuitly enough to warrant a belief that he Is capable of holding Ills own with any player In tin; world—yes, with Fred Perry of Britain, Jack Crawford .of Australia, or any of Die others. Stoefen, along with Flank Shields, Sidney Wood, George lx>tl mid Wilmer Allison, will rcpori on May 14 to Captain Williams »t the Merlon Cricket Club. Hiivor- ford, !'«.. for the initial practice. Out of them will come the 1934 team. Allison nnd I.ou, the only survivors from the 1933 team, •.vhlch was regarded as n certainty to regain the trophy from the French, but which failed dismally, aie certain to nail' off in doubles. This leaves Stoefen, Shields nnd Woods to fight It out for the Iwo sln»les jobs. Stoefen. rated off the form he showed In swcppini; through m Bermmln, the national Indoors, ami at Atlanta • recently, will gel the No. 1 singles )X>51. The Imrtl- cst hitter In the y«me. us well os the most punishing server, Sloe- fen needs only to steady his backhand and improve his strategy, to be a pood bet against unybody. anvwhere. The fact that Stnefcn never has played on a cup team will be a handicap, naturally. It's a tremendous strain, especially abroad, . before hostile crowds and on strange courts and with strange balls. Stoefen Isn't entirely lack- Ing in international competition, however, for he plnytd at Wimbledon last year, and dirt very well. Choosing between Shields and Wood is difficult. Oar guess is that Wood will win out. Sidney lias a well-rounded game, meaning (hat he is sound in every stroke. You can't say that about Shields. Frank's backhand is weak, and his forehand is not the .steadiest In the world. He depends largely uwm his service anu volleying lor viclory. and it's been proved over a;id over again thai a nmn with even one glaring weakness cannot hope to win consistently in top flight tennis. Wood Is handicapped by poor health. In condition, and with ills lictirt set on viclory. Wood is very nearly the finest player ol the game. But unfortunately. Wood Is onlv occasionally at peak form. Merlon is a happy choice for a training site. Its beautiful turf courts are the nearest thing in tills country to be co.npared with Wimbledon, where the Inter/one finals and challenge round will be played.

THINK for a minute—what if you had the house to run, meals to plan and children to care for? Do you think you could do the job as well as youj? wife does? On the same amount of money? Be honest. The housewives of the nation study and. know their jobs. They read the advertisements regularly. They keep themselves informed of the best offerings of the stores. They are expert purchasing agents.. _ These purchasing agents, from necessity .or individual desire, aim to make every dollar spent return a full one hundred cents' worth in value. They know their needs. They know through the advertisements just where these needs can be best supplied at the least cost. Such intelligent buying saves time and effort and money. It results in a management of the home that is truly efficient. Here's some good advice for all of us. Read the advertisements. Read them every day. Through them we can know exactly what we want before we go to buy. This is the surest way of securing full value for every dollar you spend.
