(Written for the United Press.) :
Many people have asked me, what
the main object was I had in mind in J
establishing the Davis Cup. i
The answer can he found in every
city throughout the country. Twenty J
years ago, when the cup wuh esta'blish-

the earth will watch the results with
intense Interest. No other game in the
history of the world has made such a

football have their devotees In a few
countries at most. Interest In lawn
tennis Is the world's sport.
Sir Auckland Gedrles, th" Knvlish
Ambassador to tho United States, at j
the banquet of the United States Lawn j
Tennis Association last winter when
the victorious American teamVas wel
comed home from its conquest In Aus
tralia, made the Interesting suggestion
that these international contests have
an important influence in promoting
better understanding and good will
among nations. It does not matter
what race they come from, or what
language they spe.V. sportsmen are
brothers the Wflld over. The visits j
of teams competing in international j
contests may sometimes do more good j
toward building up the entente con

Of course, the Davis Cup did not j
of itself bring about this wonderful I
development in the interest of lvn
tennis throughout the world. The
credit for the development should go
to the officials of the various national
associations by whose energy, self-sacrifice
and enthusiasm the results have
been accomplished. The cup merely
started and focused this interest.
Intrinsically, the cup is of com
paratively slight value; sentimentally,
t is probably the most highly prized
trophy in the world. Its value comes
tu t from its cost and size, but from
those tplemlld things of which it
s-tands as a symbol: a manly sport,
h.ird fought and cleanly played con
tests, and. above all, the highest pos
sible standards of good sportsmanship.
