TABLE TENNIS

CITY LEADS UNIVERSITY By defeating University, City has taken the lead at the end of the first round in the Auckland table tennis competition. Owen Jaine, present Auckland champion, was the only player to make a showing for the losers, winning seven games. The best contest of the match was between Jaine and W. Fogarty, who won each, the scores being 21—19 and 18 —21. Pilot-Officer Trevor Morrison, who recently returned from overseas, having served four and a half years with the R.N.Z.A.F., is fast regaining his best form. Against University he won eight out of ten games. This performance should make his inclusion in the Auckland representative team secure. With the City player, W. Fogartv, turning out for his. home province, Otacro, in the Intcr-provincial games, the Auckland rep team should include O. Jaine, J. Brien, F. Paton, T. Morrison and E. Cheal. The inter-pro-vincial games and New Zealand championships are to take place during September at Wellington. University went very close to defeat against Turners and Growers, a much improved'team, only winning 19 —17. Top scorers were Jai%e, 6 out of 8, and Cheal (Turners and Growers), 6 out of 8. N. Gentil almost made a good showing in the match when he had A. Tills down 20 —15, but Tills, a very determined finisher, managed to take the game 23—21. giving his team a win. Columba No. 1, easily defeated Columba No. 2, 27—9. For the winners H. Hartnell won eight games.
