One hundred and twenty-eight girls from all parts of the country have arrived to compete during the week at the Charleston Tennis Club and at the Carbide Courts. By the time the players arrive and check in, all will be in order--and that took some planning. * * * THE STEERING committee headed by Mrs. Hugh Thompson Jr. has been working for months on plans and all members of the various committees and other volunteers will be working throughout the week to keep all events running smoothly. Approximately 75 persons from all walks of life will step out of their every day roles to be umpires. Of that prestigious group Danny Gumowski, Curtis Barber, Arlie Hubbard, John Lobert and Nadine Willett, will take a week's vacation for the matches, and John S. Nicholas, a former Charlestonian, now living in New Jersey, who will return to Charleston to join his son, Jack Nicholas, for a two-generation team. The younger Nicholas is assistant pro at the Tennis Club. Paul Hamilton, Charleston contractor, built umpires' chairs and the outside information desk, which will be donated to the Tennis Club. * * * MANY FAMILIES have opened their homes so that no player will need find hotel accommodations. Other volunteers will be driving the girls to and from the courts throughout the week. There will be a contingency to man the refreshment stand. And everyone affiliated with the week's activities will help to keep the girls entertained and make their stay in Charleston a memorable experience. Mrs. Thompson's assistant chairman is Mrs. Stanley Silverstein and the third member of the steering committee is Mrs. John S. Ingersoll. Committee chairmen are Mrs. R.
