The decision to string along with the kids again would keep the much neglected Bryan Grant out of the front line. Grant was a member of flic 1936 team, but was not given ; employment when the Australians put an end to Die American quest.

Now, under the scheme of things, the little rebel may find lib nge to be another indictment, although he should be at his peak at 27. And when the Uniled Slates Lawn Tennis As- , soclatton announces Us first 10 for 1930, it is a 10-to-I shot that the first four will be Budge, Grant Parker, and Riggs, In the order mined.
