o'clock last night in room 306 of the
Union, in a movement which inaugur-
ated the 1924 conference tennis sea-
The meeting was presided over by
Assistant Coach George Little, who
gave a brief talk concerning the
status of tennis on the various cam-
puses of the conference universities,
and of the value'#of training for the]
sport, saying that "to be a good man
in any branch of athletics requires
strict adherence to the ordinary rules
of correct litring." He also pressed
the increasing importance of tennis
as a major sport, and traced the de-
velopment of the game at Michigan
since its inception here some years
ago. ..
John Rorich '24D, captain of this
year's Varsity team, also spoke, and
gave a short resume of the activities
of the squad last year.
Playing will start at once, and the
concrete courts are already in con--
ditlon for the preliminaries, it Is
hoped that all interested in trying
out for the Varsity will preen
themselves either to Coach Little or
Rorick. The first game on the sched-
ule is at Indiana, on April 19.
