Immediately after the pairings v/ere
posted lest Saturdayi the participants
in the ,ing-Fong tourney began playing
off their matches. The gomes of sevei -
el of the sets have been hard fought
contests, but the out-evne of the sets
does not indicate this, as the winner
usually has a "love" set advantage over
his o -ponent. But net withstanding the
set so^re,' the games on tho whole have
l»een tight, we'll-pln;/ed matcher. The
match betv/een P, Jensen and ,. Nordstrom
stood out especially for this reason, as
several of their gr«me.e Weie of the 21-
19 variety. But Jensen won both sets
6-0, and 6-0, not giving much indie ti n
of the- good playing of Nordstrom. In
their match, Myers r.nd Lefreve pit yed
several gomes over 21, alternating adds
and dueoe until finally one or the other
won, Myejs a^ lost winning the match,
6-0, and 6-0.
Other first round match results wove
Palmer .over Lowson, 6-0, 6-0,
Beaumont over Stcvig, 6-0, 6-0.
Humphrey over Barrett, 6-0, 6-2.

Walsh over Connelly, 6-0, 6-C.
Brawthen over Zaner, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.
irman over Logon, 6-^, 6-1.
As can be seen from the scores, Dean
. Zaner put up the best fight of the lo-
■ sers by for. Ho rerlly made Brawthen
work for his victory.
"ne of the bib difficulties of the
tourney is that the men c. n't seem to
get together to plr.y off their matches
in schedules time. Several first
round motohe: hove, still to be played.
The general concensus of oponion
seems to be thrt R, Jensen and R, Longt
hilz will be the men who meet in the
finals, since B. Palmer hi - been eliminated by Jensen, But the dope may
not run true to form, as some of the
"dark" horses may hove a "hot" streak
and defeat some i^pvered players,
