The doubles play was very close at Pembroke and also much better than the singles.” “The outlook for the match next week-end is more optimistic,” said Mr. Peterson. The netmen’s next match is with Fayetteville Methodist. Miler Mike Ridge demonstrates how to run a 4:54 mile. Frank Coley, Journal photo grapher snapped the picture.
