The newest wave of tennis players dashing onto the national scene from the shores of southern California includes this attractive septet of champions. Among them they hold seven of the eight major titles open to young players 18 and under in the United States, and they all live along the 200-mile axis between San Diego and Bakersfield. Karen Hantze is a San Diego girl who holds the Girls' 15 and Girls' Singles championships and shares the Girls' 15 Doubles title with Katherine Chabot. Sally Moore, from Bakersfield, and Helene Weill of Beverly Hills hold the Girls' Doubles championship of the U.S. Robert Delgado, Los Angeles, and Allen Fox, Beverly Hills, hold the national Junior Doubles title, while the Boys' Doubles title of the U.S. is held by William Bond of La Jolla with R. Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield. Bond also holds the national Boys' Singles title, and Delgado is runner-up for the Junior Singles. From this rather breathtaking recital of statistics it is easy to see that, whether it's the air or the sun or the water, the fact remains—California's hold on tennis is as strong as ever.
