In submitting the annual re port for the season 1924 one must naturally regret that the season was not more success ful both financially and other wise. Although in the early part of the season the team appear ed to have an excellent chance of going through with an un beaten record, towards the end the combination and dash ap peared to have disappeared and conseqiuently several mat ches were lost.

CRICKET COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 March 1925
CRICKET COMMENTS. Authorities, reviewing the series of cricket matches which have ended so sensationally for Australia, say that in spite of successes there are several matters that require the urgent attention of our men if they are to iretain their superiority. .Collins' captaincy has been the one outstanding feature. Every captain has to bear ab surd run outs, and weaknesses in the field want to be remed ied. ENGLISH PRESS OPINIONS. The English papers agree that England's failure in such huge struggles has been almost glorious._ Heartiest congratulations are due to the Australians for their triumph of consistency. Their last victory leaves no doubt as to their superiority on their own wickets. Grimmett is probably the bowler for whom Australia has been searching. FUND OPENED FOR GRIM METT. An Adelaide message states that in recognition of his won derful performance a fund has been opened there for bowler Grimmett.

This car, which is one of the best-known makes in America, is now on the Australian mar ket and incorporates one of the most remarkable inventions of recent years--the Lanchester Harmonic Balancer. This de vice has created a great deal of interest in motoring circles throughout the world.
