CRICKET NORTH v SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 10 January 1925
CRICKET NORTH v SOUTH. • These two teams met on Saturday | afternoon last lor the third time this season. South again proved their superiority. It may, however, he said that North were without the services of Messrs. W. J. Sanderson, Clem Bradbury, and L. Hewitt. Even with the help of these players it is very doubtful if the Northerners would he able to win. as their opponents possess the stronger batting side and with more variety in bowling. South on Saturday in their only knock com piled 167. To this amount E. Croke contributed *1S, Jack Byrne 20. E. Perry 47, and W. Keating 20. North .in their iirst innings could only manage to make 43, F. James 25 not out being the only batsman to do anything against the trundling , of Perry. Byrne, and Gordon, all of whom obtained good averages. North's second knock was much better, 101 runs being put together for the loss of seven wickets. IT. Kennedy was Koing well when he had his wicket skittled by one of Perry's fast de liveries. Dezius wa...

WOOL REPORT Scliute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report un der date 30tli December::— 1925 opens with encouraging aug urs', both as regards -wool and wheat, but conjoint financing oi both pro ducts on a large scale /during the next few months, at the exceptional prices current for each, devolves abnormal responsibilities upon bank ers throughout the Commonwealth. Perhaps bankers, therefore, are not awaiting developments of the threat ened maritime strike with as anxi ous concern as other traders are. Whilst an actual hold-up of extens ive. dimensions, especially if prolong ed for some weeks, would be as dis astrous as indefensible from the nor mal commercial point of view, there would be some liglit compensation in the fact that temporary cessation of exports would automatically bring about less strain upon the immediate financial resources of the banks, by spreading their commitments over a wider range of time. Nevertheless, it is to be hoped that common "sense will prevail, and that...
