Tnrnbnll (Prospect) and R. L. Shepherd (PJM. and E. T. Bowe (Kens.) and J. B. Black (E.T.). Shepherd and Tunibull were wen matched : as Juntos. Last season Tumbull pro gressed more raoldly than Shepherd. wiio; although his driving game advanced, did; not show headway with his volleying.

YACHTING STRENGTH MAINTAINED Governor To Attend Opening [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931
YACHTING STRENGTH MAINTAINED Governor To Attend Opening By 'HELMSMAN' Yachts, especially three of small sizes, are among the few things which are main taining their value at present.
