Lester Stocfcn, national indoor champion, thinks so much of his ability that he has predicted the lad will dethrone Fred Perry as •world champion next year. Mako isn't banking too much on I Stocfcn s prediction, (jut h<> does hope to represent the United Stales in the donblc-s coniKclillon with Donald nudge, another Pacific coast player, as his partner. Mako and Uudgc won the nu-1 tlonal clay court doubles last sum-| mcr, but lost to Stoefcn nnd j George Loll in the nallonal doubles al Philadelphia. Close observers of the sport already have placed Mako and Budge on the cup team in their minds, now ihat Lett nnd Stoefen have turned professional, and they are inclined to support the tatter's prediction that the Los Angeles boy has a good chance nf upsetting Perry's reign.
