nis committee of the Multnomah Club.
last night. "Mr. Douglas' visit affords
a rare opportunity to local players to
better their game. He has made an
exhaustive study of the game,, and by
making simple changes in the players
styles can greatly . increase the ef
fectiveness of their various strokes."
Mr. Douglas will give a lecture to

which he will point out many of the
common mistakes of the tennis game.
This will be his only platform lecture,
