Jan, 11 —Fred Perry and Ellsworth Vines arc Just starting, but have gone far enough to convince the profe'sStonals that the Englishman Is a better tennis player than they suspected. Vines has been handicapped by a touch of tri|),)e and nervous Indigestion, which probably li a d .something to do wtlh perry obtaining the jump on him But trained observers have an Idea that the dynamic Briton will continue to get the ball back when the Pasadena iwplar fully recuperates Earnest Ellsworth Is making the . fame kind of shots against rljln? Pred that blasted the aged Dill Tilden, Les Stocfen, and others fiom the court "Thu difference Is that Perry keeps the ball In ploy Vines has made Innumerable forehand -shots Into Perry's backhand comer that uould have beaten Tilden, Stoefcn. and otheis only, to have the four-time Divls Cup hero nick Ihe ball right back Instead of Vines' shots to Perry's forehand corner pulling Perry out of position, the British luminary's returns pull the southern Callfor- nlnn out of his proper place To the surprise of manyschoolcd spectators, vines' game, perhaps too formidable for any other ]ila>er In the world, appears made to order for Perry The Englishman thrives on Vines' speed and Perry gets most of his own return speed shots off the professional tltleholder's shots , Ftrrj's Game Should Be Pattern for Youngsters Perry's, Is the top tennis game of the future It Is the soundest, and Is executed with u minimum ol wasted energy. It'should be "Ihe pattern for every joungsler Its • principal strength lies In short ^cross-court angle shots which lun rivals ragged.

Perhaps the most remarkable , feature of the Perri-Vines tour to date is the quickness with which the Englishman adapted himself to the stretched canvas, glaring archghts. and ' altogether strange • Indoor setup of tennis gypsies Stretched canvas Is much faster than the grass to which Peny was accustomed Naturally, it speeds up the game, and increases the tempo of serving and volleying, which happens to be Vines' forte. On the ,other hon<5, it curbs the finesse ot Perry's drop shots and lobs It appears that Fred Perry, like the geod race horse, can run on any kind of track .
