We reached Dallas Sunday night at 7 o'clock and found a large welcoming party at the depot to greet our special train. Trains from all sections have been arriving since Saturday and many more are due today. The streets are ablaze with bunting, flags and flowers. Welcome signs are everywhere in shop windows and all buildings. Everyone seems friendly and anxious to make the visit pleasant and memorable. The hotel lobbies are crowded with delegates whose badges show every state and many of the other across seas countries. Just what the total attendance will be is hard to judge until all are registered today, but it will be well over 10,000. The convention hall is located in the State Fair grounds on the Eastern end of the city and some 20 minutes from the hotel and business center. By next week I may have more real Rotary news providing it can be sent, for our party sails from Galveston on Saturday morning, June 1st, for a five day trip over sea on the S. S.

LONG ISLAND TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP WON BY JEROME LANG Jerome Lang, winner of the Long Island tennis championship in 1922 and 1923, gained permanent possession of the title cup last Sunday by defeating Lawrence Kurzrok in straight sets in the finals at the Jackson Heights Tennis Gub courts. The score was 6 4, 6 3, 6 3. The winner seemed to improve as the match proceeded taking the first four games of the last set. Kurzrok, rallying succeeded in capturing the fifth, seventh and eighth games after a hard struggle in each. Kurzrok, a left-handed player, seemed to have lost some of the speed which carried him to an unexpected victory over Percy Kynaston the day before. Lang, on the other hand, was in even better form than when he won over R. M. De Mott on Saturday. The winner, steady and committing few errors, placed many a return just outside of his opponent's reach, especially spinning cuts over the net. Kurzrok's play was marred by seven double faults. His victory on Sunday gave Lang his second championship in eight days, as he won the Spuyten Duyvil tournament at the Nipnichsen Club the week before. Kurzrok also has won a championship this year, .having triumphed in the Greater New York tourney at Staten Island. After the cup had been presented to Lang by Leonard Stone, chairman of the tournament committee, both finalists took part in an exhibition doubles match. Telephone BUCKMINSTER 1771 ROBERT 0.

The plans submitted were on view in the dining room of the Elks Club at the luncheon. The principal speaker at the luncheon was Dr. Miller McClintock, director of the Albert. Russell Ersfcine Bureau for Traffic Research at Harvard University. Dr. McClintock said : "There is one way in which traffic problems can be " solved, and that at a very small cost. The staggering of hours, having different times for the opening and closing of retail stores and office buildings, has worked out successfully in Chicago, and I am sure would work out as well here. In addition to relieving congestion on the streets it gives the office worker an extra hour either to shop or go home if he is released from work an hour before the stores close." He congratulated the city administration for the efficient way traffic is handled in New York and Brooklyn. He said New York has been the leader in traffic solution. Mr. Walter Hammitt, second vice-president of the association and vice-president of Frederick Loeser & Co., presided. Others at the speakers' table were S. F. Rothschild, chairman Executive Committee; Harvey W. Corbett, architect; J. P. Fairchild, treasurer; Dr. William Fox, director Museum Arts and Sciences ; Dr. P. R. Kolbe, president Poly.
