Seventy four V C7119 FLASHLIGHT ofa I QQ sf worked with the coach in conditioning Phil for the big meet, which was only two weeks off. The first week was taken up in practice of serving. Phil served. and served until he thought that his arm would come off: and as a result. he had the hardest straight Ameri- can service that had ever been seen on the local courts. The next week was taken up in driving and lrack-court work. which rapidly improved each day. At last it was time for the trip to the capital at Austin. where the big event would come off.
