If the difference in percentage warrants it, the game must be played, otherwise it is. useless. Which ever way it goes, the result, under the circumstances, will b: very unsatisfactory.

COMBINED ACCELERATION TEST OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916
COMBINED ACCELERATION TEST OFF. A note to hand from Mr. Lcs Staples, the hon. secretary of the Canberra Club, conveys the news that the proposed combined accelera tion test with the Curr.berlandcrs is 'off.' Ac cording to Mr. Staples it is 'postponed for an indefinite oeriod.' and he adds. 'It is a great struggle to get members to attend a meeting without taking a competition into considera tion. Rather than spoil an afternoon for the Cumberlander5, the event had better be put off.' Surely the Canbcrras have not developed the tired feeling after keeping going through two strenuous years. Such appears to be the case, however. It is not the fault of Mr. Les. Staples, who has worked well. It must be dis couraging to have one's efforts thus re warded.

Spears scored his win very early in the season when Kramer was not thoroughly wound up. for this wonderful rider — the greatest the world has seen, or will rrobably ever sec — necda a race or two to bring him to hio beat.
