Tennis Carded Today
Alpha Kappa Lambda will meet
Phi Beta Delta this afternoon in the
finals of the inter-fraternity tennis
tournament. The singles match is
of the greatest interest, Land of
Phi Beta Delta being in the semi-
finals of the all-campus meet, and
Wilcox of A. K. L. in the finals.
The result of this match may
indicate the winner of the all-cam-
pus tournament. The other Matches
however, should be equally good for
in the number one set-up Goodman
and Kronfeld meet Kirk, Oldham,
or Kearns from A. K. L. In the
other match Cohen and Bishlou,
Phi Betas, will meet Symon and
Knapp or Angell. A 2-1 score will
probably take the day for one of
these teams.
