SUMMER POLOISTS

The Maharaja of Jaipur led a pickup team of Indians, Pakistanis and Britishers, called The Diplomats, to defeat (10-5) at Olney, Md. against a Washington Polo Club team manned by Don Bradley, Bill Beall, Dr. John Keeler, Colonel Porter King and Halter Cunningham. The royal leader scored a goal, proved an adept player

Reclining between chukkers, maharaja, 43, rests on Oriental rug and satin-covered pillows as he chats with his sari-clad maharani (left), Mrs. Sherali Kha and Pakistani Ambassador Syed Amjad Ali (right).

Sidelined by heat, maharaja enjoys the shade of maharani's parasol as match continues. He played only two chukkers, alternating with his 21-year-old son, Kumar Bhwani Singh, who holds a captaincy in Indian army.

Tight-lipped maharaja tensely awaits the start of match. Currently rated at seven goals, he contributed some fine near-side neck shots.
