It was a tight match. It was a little disappointing we didn't win.

It was a good learning experience since we have several players who have never played before. They have had two matches and 10 on-court practices and this was our first match of the season.

Pulp magazines were pretty much the principal form of inexpensive literature in the first part of the 20th century. If you wanted to read something and didn't want to spend the money on a hardcover book, you would go to the news stand and buy a pulp fiction magazine.
