Students Want Tournament During
Summer; Have Good Facilities
for Sport
Following closely on the heels of
the recent agitation for an All-Cam-
pus baseball team, comes the popular
call for a tennis tournament and plans
for an immediate schedule. Many let-
lers requesting the inauguration of
summer tennis tournaments sent to
The Wolverine office during the last
few days are mainly responsible for
the proposal.
Heeding this appeal, The Volverine
will be the headquarters the next few
days where those who are interested
in the tennis movement can sign up.
If sufficient names are entered, it is
likely that a schedule will be made
out and prizes offered to the winners
of both double and singles.
Tennis has been a popular sport
this summer at Wisconsin and other
universities, and with the excellent
facilities on Ferry Field, there is no
doubt but that any amount of aspir-
ants could find ample place to carry
out the schedule.
Those interested in the tournament
are requested to sign the coupon ap-
pearing on this page and mail or pre-
sent it at The Wolverine office, May-
nard street, Ann Arbor Press build-
ing. If plans materialize, a schedule
