WHEN AUSTIN FORGOT i

HIS SHORTS S

Some amusement was caused at Monto w Carlo recently at the opening of a lawn I tennis "friendly" between tho Inter- | national Tennis Club of Great Britain |¡ and tho International Club of Monaco, " when H. W. ("Bunny") Austin, Ung- 1' land's No. 1 player, forgot his shorts | and had to borrow a pair of Jacques | Brugnon's flannels. I

Usually so self-possessed and'immacu- | lato in his shorts, Austin was distinctly ¡

uncomfortable in tho borrowed flannels 8

and made tho doubtful fit appear worse ¡ by constantly adjusting tho belt. j

However, ho and Iii. C. Peters won \

their double without much difficulty. '

Austin was tho first of tho prominent f, overseas players to wear shorts at ten- y nis, and ho seldom- wears other than g shorts on tho courts regardless of tho I weather. ' ¡i

The "British" sido at tho tourna- 'í ment included tho King of Sweden, who ç partnered Jacques Brugnon. Tho match L \ consisted of throe doubles, all of which ¿

''Britain" won. .. a

Tho third "British" partnership.was f Kho-Sin-Kio, tho Chinese Davis Cup player, and A. Wallis Myers, tho tennis

writer.
