TENNIS GIRLS To the E'ditor. Mr. F. C. Bromley: Mr. F. H. B3rowne certainly provides a conundrum when he states that the views of Mrs. W. T. Rowe and myself are absurd, and at the same time considers that the Adelaaide women tennis players are far too modest, and that it is "painful" to watch their tennis. I personally stated that I had never seen anything in Australia from which a photographer could obtain a picture which wrould appear "utndesirable." Although all English pilotographs are not exhibited in Adelaide I still state that I have not seen one land I have seen many) which has been objectionable, and I still think that far too much publicity has been given to the statement of the secretary of the English Lawn Tennis Association. MIr. Browne is entitled to his opinion regarding the standard of young women tenmnis players in Adelaide, but he will ind that it is not that held by tennis players in this State. Our women players hav\e shown marked improvement in the last few year...
