SEMIFINALS COMPLETES IN THE
Many Entries in Both Doubles and
Singles Good Tennis Being Played
Mpre Interest Than in Past
The tennlB tournament is progress
ing in fine shape nnd the numerous
entries are taking advantage of the
good weather to pull off their matches.
More interest is apparently being
manifested -in thlB branch of athletics
this year than has been shown for
several seasons. The Freshman class
is well represented both In numbers
and ability In the tournament, and it
la to be noped that these men will not
allow the spirit and enthusiasm which
has been revived this year to die out
in the future.
The quality of tennis that 1b being
played is in many, cases very encour
aging and there Is no reason why the
courts should not be improved and
the game be elevated to the position
of prominence and popularity which
it holds in other schools.
The two matches in the semi-llnal
ro,und In doubles have been played.
Young and Racely beat Wood and
Schmidt easily In straight sets. Score,
G-2, 6-2. The other match, between
Ritchie and Flower and Slaughter and
Post, was harder fought. . iVt waB
played In a Btlff wind, so that the play
was more or less erratic. Rltch'.e and
Flower took the first set easily, 6-3.
In tho second sot, however, Slaughter
and Post steadied and took the ilrst
three games. The score then went
to 3-1 and then to M, but here Ritchie
und Flower took a brace, winning live
straight games and with them the set
Ritchie and Flower will now meet
Young and Racely In the finals for tho
In the singles there are twenty-two
entries and although a good many
matches have been played, it Is yet too
early to forecast Its outcome. With
good weather the singles may be Un
wished this week. The matcue.s played
so far are as follows:
-Young-beat Hall, 6-4, 6-1.
Flower beat Schmidt, G-. G-l.
