THE MURRAY This Younger Generation! Last week marked the Diamond Jubilee of tennis. Its origin is attributed to a British Army officer who first started the game back in 1870. He didn't know it, but he set off a craze that today is stronger than ever, has more adherents and more spectators than at any time past, and is showing signs of growing much stronger rather than weakening in public opinion. He also paved the way for those dozens of tennis stories, funny or which you've all heard over and over. The best, in our book, is the expression, "He didn't get them shifty eyes from watchin' a tennis match!" Be that as it may, we'll go along with the U. S. Lawn Tennis association in tnc reams of publicity it issued, with one exception. We disagree quite heartily with a suggested editorial they planted in our news kit, entitled "Wonder Drugs Are Not Enough!" It conveyed the impression that America's youngsters have a physical condition and that tennis is the miracle cure for lack of physique. This editorial said too many automobiles and school buses and too many hours spent motionless in front of TV sets are prod ducing boys and girls content to take their exercise and sports This we'll challenge. We'd like to invite the author of that missive to step onto the football field with Jay Goldman, Perry racquct-and-softb- all y, run-do- second-hande- short-winde- d, flabby-muscle- d. boys who played for Murray high last year and see how television has exag- ed culture-adherent- s, Siring 'Round Your Finger ed GIRLS Harold E.

Letf er To The Editor Dear Editor: I am writing this open letter in hopes that someone will see it and something will be done about the problem that exists at the Murray park tennis courts. The courts are in use all day everyday by children and adults in our community. As almost everyone knows, the courts are used for square dances several times a month. The nets are taken down at noon that day when the square dance isn't until 8:00 or 9:00 o'clock that night. Then to make matters worse, after it's over, no one bothers to put the nets back up till the following Monday. For four days the courts aren't in use and no one can play tennis during the weekend. This has happened often and it's time someone saw to it that the nets aren't taken down until the evening of the activity and are replaced the following morn, o ing. ! may not need financial service today.

But we like to recall that some authority back in the 1930's decided the average American boy was getting out of physical condition by riding in automobiles and nations that even in that day were posing as our future enemy were peopled by "supermen" who would give us a tearful rimmin' if we ever were forced into war. But what country was it in the 1940s that led the Allies to a victory that was achieved by the toughest fighting men ever developed? Not the Nazi Supermen or the was it? Nope Fascist just those American boys who should'vc taken up tennis in 1935 so they'd be ready for the, task that would eventually confront them. Tennis is a great game. Everyone who desires to develop coordination, poise, stamina and competitive spirit should give it a whirl.
