Mr Laney pointed out that in the first set when Riggs looked as if he was going to blast the German noble right out of the stadium the Baron just the same was playing well enough to be within a point of winning four games To Mr Lanejr this was a tip off that all the Baron had to do in the succeeding sets was to lift his game a few notches and he was in Getting the Boll Over Net Is Essential ALL of this was not visible to the naked eye of your correspondent A (it is only at tennis tournaments where everybody wears panties that your correspondent goes in for nudism in any form) From where your correspondent sat which was mostly in the grill it looked as if the Baron was having one hell of a time getting the ball over the net your correspondent knows this much about tennis: If you do not get the ball over the net or do not ring the cane you do not win the cupie doll or the stuffed wire haired terrier Xawe-Kentlnel Plinlnerapha Using these seven boys es a nucleus Coach Hobo Thayer hopes to turn out a strong football team at Stair Vocational High School this fall At top left passing is Earl Edmonds of N-S Golden Gloves fame Top renter is Ferrell (Larry Kelley) Daniels end At top right is shown Alex White brother of the once famous Sheency White The four linemen shown at the bottom are the first suing guards and tackles Left to right they are: Jack Loy tackle Dewey Kirby guard Maurice Harbison guard and Alonzo Shoopman tackle Drive out today for our special Sunday Halo Lunch Put The Shine Back Have ll polished to Ita original gloss ORIVI IN AT ONCK CECIL McPherson SERVICE STATION fM Hrnlay at Cumb Dial S-Mta Car Caliad Fee Call Kaylor For exact duplicate parta ana aervico on all maka radioa ONE DAY SERVICE Come and see our new line of Erlnrude and Elto outboard motors and boats KAYLOR Radio Boat Co MM Dial 3-Z471 MODERN CARDIOLOGY By A HENDERSON Of Medical Arts Drug Co- Inc Heart disease has Increased during the past fifteen years due to fast living There are two kinds of heart disease That which results from infection sometimes traceable to scarlet fever diptheria infected tonsils or bid teeth The second is called "Coronary disease" the name meaning nothing to the average person is a "plugging of the nerve vessels that supply the heart with blood" Happily there Is always reason to hope for complete recovery Attacks are intermittent and at times it disappears See a doctor occasionally and follow his advice about emergency medicines and where to secure them This ta the 4th ef a eerie ef Editorial Advertieament appearing In this papar each Sunday iCopyrlfht) Vv Dr Chiunlcy Defends Cup Will Be Out To Continue Shooting Supremacy at Knox Club Dr I Chumley will be out to continue his skeet ahooting supremacy today at the regular weekly practire shoot at the Knoxville Rod and Gun club Firing begins at 1:30 Dr Chumley has topped all other club members at skeet for the past severs Iwecks Joe Kimsey is also expected to be on hand to defend the 16-yard trophy won by him last Sunday trophy will be at stake Walker club secretary said that visiting shooters are welcome to attend today'a event Major Loop Leaders Br rire Pr) Be Ml ejt Jftaw flak Am Ilf Ml 3M SIwte-K-k Card 133 113 I 3:4 Harrnen CM 1 JI jt Bavr Pirafva 111 i 43 Gehrlc Vaeki33 a 131 177 Jit Mem Rlai asnKsr Pen R4 Boa Tork Tiaera Rue Betted le I1'!

The Baron Woi the Better Player A It turned out the Baron was the better player He had more court is savvy more poise and more telling shots He took the third set a critical set for him well IH have to go expert on you now In the fourth set the count was two games apiece with the Baron serving (In tennis you know the advantage la all on your aide when you are serving) In the fifth game with the Baron serving Riggs won This looked like the vital break He had trumped the Barons ace at a dangerous stage and was out In front If he could hold this advantage he'd win the set and be in the finals But he didn't hold it In the next came the Baron cam back and broke through Riggs' service to even the set This discouraged the youngster He was through The Baron took the next three games and the set The following set was an anti climax as well as an anti-Riggs The match had been won and lost In the fifth end sixth games of the fourth set Well ask somebody who knows then smart guy!
