As a Coming Luminary
LONDON.—(INS)—Lawn tennis en-
thusiasts might well look out for the
deeds of Miss Vera H. Montgomery
this season. A great many people be-
lieve that she will prove the best
English girl player of her generation.
Without doubt she is the “find” of
recent years. Just nineteen years of
age, she is a versatile player who
possesses all the strokes. Her service
is one of the best models in the coun-
try; in consequence, her delivery is
very fast and unusually well-control-
led. Her forehand drive is very sim-
ilar to that of Miss Helen Wills in
character. She hits a very early ball
with a vigorous punch, and her back-
hand drive is exceedingly good both
In speed and placement.
The British Lawn Tennis Associa-
tion is watching her very closely and
it will be no surprise if she is includ-
ed n the Birtish Wightman Cup team.

Once More to 6 Feet
LONDON.—(INS) -The- minimum
height of the City of London Police
has been raised to its former figure
of 6 feet. During the war and Just af-
ter, owing to a temporary difficulty
of getting recruits, the standard was
lowered to 70 inches.
The City Corporation likes its po-
licemen —96 per cent of whom are
recruited from the countryside—to
look imposing, and also point out
that shorter men would lack an air
of dignity in the prescribed uniform.
