Tennis today is In much the same predicament as baseball was for a time. Five ycnrs ago oifl- mls of the national pastime were bemoaning the luck of ".material, and v-eie agreed thai popularity of footbnll was inking from the ditunond sport youngsters' who previously had grown up with .tins ambition to become another Ty Cobb.

A, would do well to Instigate such n propaganda campaign, for outsldo of five or six youngsters coming up, (here doesn't .seem to be any hope for capable yowig blood to replace llie doddering Davis Cup vets. Franklo Parker, the l,nwrcncc- \lllc Prep hope, who was nursed along by Mercer Deasley for years, pravcd lit the i-cccnl Seabrlght, N. J,, tournament that he Isn't Jiving up to expectations.

Hyn-nnd still (lie Davis Cup selectors picked the grny-benrds to defend our International Inu- rcls nguhist Australia In preference to the young winning team.
