GENERAL S^OTES. Much has been written and even more suggested about- the possibil ity of leading Australian cricketers refusing to. go to England next .season if the Board of-Control per sists in the determination to send a non-playing secretary, whose salary will be paid by the Board out of ils share of the takings, but'-. whose travdUng-ftxpenses will be included in the accounts of the team. Therci seems, however, a lot of mystery as to who are the play ers in question. On this score it is pointed out I hat ilih has not given utteranco to any statements of the kind. Neither has Trumper. Nor have Bavdsiey, Hansford, Macart ney, Armstrong, Carter, Whitty, Kellewav, Cotter, or Hordern. i hese arc the only players certain of selection for the next tour.

Bathurst and the W.D.R.A. QUESTION OF REPRESEN TATION. Tlio ofiicials of the Batliurst Turf Clu state that now that the A.J.C. lias upheld the club's appeal against the decision of the W.D.ll.A, in fe fusing to grant January 2G and 27 as the dates for its annual race meeting, steps should be taken to prevent a repetition of the exclus ion of an important club like Batli urst from representation on the As sociation's executive. It is sugges ted that the constitution of the as sociation should be amended to de fine "a race club." So far as representation on the association is concerned the case for the Batliurst club was put by one of its officers in an interview. "At present," he said, "practically any body which holds a race meeting may secure affiliation and represen tation.
