The feature of the tennis season was the
stepping up of Wallace Cmundlach from second
to first place among St. Louis Junior Netmen.
Last year, first place was held by Benny Sobi-

this time he has been undefeated. During this
season alone, he has been credited with 6 of the
8 victories in the singles division, while the
other two were credited to Wilbert Capehart,
who holds second singles place in tennis and
also holds the position of captain of the team,
The final results of all our tennis matches

track team made one of the best showings in
years by taking third place. Roosevelt took

won 36M of the points with Fritz taking four
Hrsts. The Senior division scored the remain-
ing five. The juniors placed third in the divi-
