Tennis started off with a bang Tuesday when Dr. H. H. Downing ond
his U. of K. racquetecrs walloped St. Xavler. Tennis has come to the
front In recent years under the tutelage of Professor Downing and the
local boys have always acquitted themselves In admirable fashion whenever they play. Coach Downing Is known to be an authority on stars
and when It comes to tennis stars, picks them like an expert or makes
them to his likeness.
The Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted down the
proposal to establish a czar for Kentucky high school basketball teams.
When the opportunity presented Itself, the association passed it up.
Maybe they had good reasons.
The committee proposed a budget of $9,000 for the salary and expenses of the commissioner. The proposal was to take 15 per cent of the
gross gate receipts from the district and regional tournaments, to give
the competing teams 50 per cent and the host schools 35 per cent; to
put membership fees on a sliding scale, ranging from $5 to $18; to take
over the state tournament.
In 29 of the 33 district meets, and six of the eight reglonals, it was
Unfound that the 29 districts had a gross gate receipt of $30,000.
der the present system, competing teams receive nearly $20,000 and the
host schools receive $10,000.
The amount credited to competing teams Includes that spent for
entertainment and traveling expenses. Ten meets failed to pay all traveling expenses and some did not pay any to visiting teams.
Under the new plan, competing schools would receive $15,000, host
schools, $10,500, and the association would receive $4,500. The loss to
teams would be about $4,000. To the host it would be about $500.
Cmparing the regional gate of $10,000 competing, teams get more
than $5,000 and host schools get a little more than $3,000. Under the
proposed plan, it would be more than $5,000 for competing teams; $3,000
for hosts and $1,500 to the association.

at any rate, has proved good publicity. In this connection, when
Strangler Lewis was being advertised as from the University of Kentucky, The Wake wrote the dean
there to know Just what courses
Lewis had taken and whether he
had received a degree. The reply
was that Lewis, so far as the dean
could find, never had matriculated,
but he naively added, "He may
have walked through the gymnasium some time."
