COMMITTEE IANIE YOUNGER SET ENTERTAIN Gay Night At Osborne Hall Rarely has the Osborne Hall presen ted a prettier sight than last evening, when 14 of Adelaide's most attracti've maidens invited 2A3 of their friends to dance. The girls had worked almost from dawn until eve preparing the halt. Their fforts wer rewarde diy the ad miration of the guests for the artistic decorative s,'henm. All round were wonderfuly realistic hollyhocks in pur ple, pink, and cerise, growing in hi black ilover pots. Miss Gert.ie Camp bell's orchestra was behind a trells work fence near which grew more hollyhocks. The lights were shaded in mauve and pihk--most becoming to complexions, but deceptive in effect as to the colors of the frocks, so I hope I shall be forgiven if I give any of the fair wearers' frocks of a wrong hue. The programmes were dainty affairs, with handpainted holyhocks adorning them. The supper room was a picture with its tables decked with big brown heath and smal brasso..Allm cmfwpa ba...

WEATHER IN BRIEF Since yesterday morning a slight low pressure has pushed up from the south of the State, and later coalesced with the disturbance between Australia and New Zealand. At the same time, the western "high" drifted a little further toward the Bight. This development re sulted in steeper barometric gradients over the south-eastern portion of the continent. Thin morning cold, squally southerly winds were reported from this quarter, with snow in the Wimmera district. In South Australia, said Mr. E. Brom ley (Government Meteorologist), further light rain was recorded practically throughout the settled areas. With few exceptions, the totals were under a quar ter- of an inch. In only one instance was more than half an inch gauged 65 points at Penola. The intrusion of the low pressure had delayed fine wea ther, for the centre of the "high" was still located along the south coast of Western Australia. The prospects for the week-end were therefore for more cloudy and cold weather...

NORWOOD V. GLENELG There was a.small attendance at the Norwood Oval. The arena was in a greasy condition, and there was a strong southerly wind straight down the ground. Of the nineteen selected by Norwood Clapson and Plunkett stayed out, and Burns, who was induced to stay in town, went into the side. Hanley did not play for Glenelg, and Drew filled the breach. Perry skippered the side. White won the toss, and taking ad vantage of the wind kicked to the nor thern end. Wadha.m, Lee, and Schu macher represented the redlegs in the iruck, while Moore and G. and E. Ross served Glenelg. The home side were first away. Wad ham had a shot, but kicked into his man.

If Torrens won, their place in the final four was virtually assured. The teams were the same as published. Bampton won the toss, and Port, fa vored by a strong wind, kicked toward the southern end. Ports were quick to attack, and in less than a minute Allingham, from a fre given by Davies, scored a goal. The black-and-whites were clearing more quickly from the scrambles, but Torrens showed better cohesion. The -wind was having a decided influ ence on the game, often carrying the leather right out of its course. Dewar from a place shot kicked well in, but the ball was stopped by the Torrens giant, Mills. Practically throughout the remainder of the quarter Torrens were kept on the defensive.
