TEST CRICKET Status of Players DISCUSSION IN ENGLAND (UNITED SERVICE.) LONDON, July 31. It is stated that the question of test match status arises with the considera-I tion of the case of T. C.

RIFLE SHOOTING (By "Foresight.") SATL;RDAY'S FIXTURES Adelaide--Practice. Goodwood United-Trophy Match. Port Adelaide-Annual Meeting. INTERCTLUB FIALS LAST SATURDAY. The threatened rain held off long enough last week-end to allow shooting to be proceeded with uninterruptedly.

Adelaide No. 1 more than hold their own, winning the championship and A Grade handi cap. For the winners R. H. Hall made 74, wnich was the highest score for ·the day, equal to C. C.

DISAPPOINTED IMMIGRANTS Stowaways Sent Back SWORN STATEMENTS TAKEN MELBOURTNE, Today. Sworn statements made before the Governor cf Cey'lcon by disaDppointed Western Au.tralian immigrants who stowed away on the Ormrnuz and were imprisoned at Colombo, are now on the way to the Colonial Oxtice in London. This action, which is consequent upon the recent criticism of Western Austra lia's immigration policy indulged in by immigrants who resorted to the same Drocedure as the slowaways on the Ormuz to get back to England, should result in further action being taken by the officials here to ascertain whether the fault lies at home or abroad. The information that the Ceylon authorities had taken action reached Melbourne when the Orvieto arrived yesterday. The three disappointed men found on the Ormuz were returned to Fremantle on the ship, another Onnuz stowaway-a, sailor deserter-also being on board.

SPORTING NOTES NOT A GOAL UMPIRE QUINN EXPLAINS [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
SPORTIN NOTES NOT A iOAL UMPIRE QUINN EXPLAINS A doubt exists as to whether a point kicked in the second quarter of the Norwood-West Adelaide match by Manuel, of West, should have been a goal. Umpire Quinn, who had charge of the match, was questioned this morning concerning it. His explanation was that two West men and Dobson, of Norwood. went up for the ball near the goal line. A wes terner touched it, and the ball fell into Dobson's arms. TVhten the action was completed a West man's arm went round Dobson's neck and the whistle was blown for a free kick. The goal um pire ruled that the ball was dead when it fell into the Norwood man's hands. Therefore it was a behind. The goal umpire had to judge whe ther the ball was out of play, and that being so the free kick could not be given after the ball was dead.

PRAMS ON RAILWAYS [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
PRBAMS ON RAILWAYS _No distinction in the matter of dis tance is made by the Railways Depart mnent in its charges for the carriage of pera&mnbulators. For instance, it costs just as much to convey the baby's car riage from Adelaide to Bowden as it does from the city to Semaphore. In the opinion of Cr. Brown, of Port Adelaide, the Railways Department should carry prams free of charge. He raised the question at last night's meet ing of the Port Council, and pointed out that a flat rate of sevenpence was. charged. "It is a gret hardship to mothers," he complained. After referring to such matters as. increasing the population immigration he asked the council to take the mawtter up. His point was that babies were the best inmmigrants, but there was not much encouragement if mothers had to put up with such hardships as having to pay sevenpence carriage for their perambulators every time they travelled on the railways. TWhere the mother had to pay a four penny train fare she was re...

NEW SAFETY ZONES [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
NEW SAFETY ZON 3 --- &lt;-»&lt;a- &lt;»" -- Adelaide is brought into line with other modern cities by the decision of the City Council to abolish the ineffective safety zones in King William street and establish new central area s parallel with the tram lines. Under existing conditions, the main street at busy periods is a death trap. Some citizens use the safety zones, others gather along the tram tracks, and the remainder either fill the roadway or walk at an angle toward their approaching trams. This congestion renders motor traffic extremely hazardous and makes impossible the otherwise excellent rule, enforced in many cities, that no motor shall pass a stationary tram car. The experiment of a central zone in Grenfell street was unsuccessful, and failure was due to a more obvious cause than those stated to the City Council by the chairman of the Bylaws Committee. As well expect that everyone should be taught to walk to the left in King William street and t...
