Shields and Sidney B.; Wood, Jr., the tennis road leads to Paris for the Davis Cup challenge round with the French champions, July 24, 25 and 20. Perhaps it is just ay well tint William Talem Tilden III will Mad i . .no more tennis crusades against i France. The way is leng. with no] short cuts, and Is neither straight , nor down hill. It is not ovjn level, but winds upgrade, with dangerous curves appearing al intervals of approximately two weeks. Thus It seems best thai the responsibility of the 1031 crusade rests on younger shoulders The combined tig's of Shields and Wcod is only one mo'o summer than Tlden's. They will be able .to negotiate the turns at greater speed than old Bill. The youthful pair—Shields Is 50; Wood is 19—strikes the first obstacle next month. It Is Mexico and.'

Of course, Henri Coche i and Jean Borolra remain to fight it out, but these optimists figure that the youth and fine tennis of America's youngsers may skid the French veterans oiit of "the championship picture, which is not entirely impossible. -After Shields flopped in the recent indoor championships, he worked his tennis fever up to n high pitch - and blasted Borolra clear ott the courts in the international team matches.
