THE MAYOR RETIRES. What the Mayor Says. '"His Statements Misrepresented." (To the Editor of the "Standard.") Dear Sir,--Under the above heading Sparagraph has appeared in the press. \To one was more surprised than I was Then Mr. MeFarlane read out the para ;raph which appeared in your 'Sparks"' column in this connection.

If there is.one game more than an other that has grown in publie favor during the past five years that ganie is lawn tennis. In travelling around the States, both in country and sulurbas districts, it is surprising to see the popularity of the game that provides a form of out-door amusement with a total absence of any toims of vice o0 vulgarity. Although Port Melbourune has a tennis club, in Graham-street. none of the Churches had previously taken any steps to follow the example of many of the churches around Mel bourne. When a demand came from a large number of young people connect en with the Girls' Guild and the Young Men's Athletic Club, our Presbyterian friends decided in November last to build a court in the Church grounds, adjoining the manse in Bridge-street.

Notes on the Game. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 21 March 1914
"Notes on the Game. The batting was very slow consider ing the splendid wicket and the small playing grou'ild. The slowness was un doubtedly due to the good bowling and keen fielding. Ports should have no difficulty in topping Brunswick's score. Given the same conditions they ought to make a stand worthy of their batting stan dard. A large number of local supporters witnessld the match, and a good natured chaff and barrack was heard from" both sides. Jack McColl bowled splendidly and, despite three chances the wicketkeeper missed, he obtained tei good average of five for 44.
