For Colegiates By Sinking


Weir Chooses
Teo Of Three
Doubles Teams
With five of the six singles posi-
tions pretty well determined and with
the final day of reckoning just two
weeks away, Coach Leroy Weir has
started to make definite plans about
the' pairings of his three doubles
Captain Jim Tobin and junior Law-
ton Hammett, numbers one and two
respectively in singles, have been
working in the number one spot and
have 'really been clicking. Tobin
with his hard, fast serve and Ham-
mett with his excellent net game
seem to be the logical pair to play in
this slot.
In a practice game yesterday this
combination looked quite impressive
with, the net play of both players
featuring the match.
In the second position will prob-
ably be two juniors, Jim Porter and
Wayne Stille. Porter is a unique
player in that he serves with his left
hand and plays with his right. Since
this left-handed serve is quite diffi-
cult to return and since Stille is a
powerful server himself, these two
should play together quite easily.
Both play good net games and the
steadiness of Porter should balance
the sometimes erratic play of Stille.
The last doubles team is still a
mystery. One thing, however, is
pretty certain-namely that Tom
Gamon will probably be one of the
two lien. Gamon has been playing a
good brand of tennis and has just
about assured himself a position.
The remaining place depends on the
number six singles man, and this
person should be chosen soon.
Under his tpresent plans Weir has
not quite decided if he will take an
extra man on the Southern trip and
will not do so until he has definitely
decided who the sixth singles man
and last doubles man will be.
