80 MINUTES PLAY IN DURBAN TEST Start Delayed Because Bails Were Too Big DURBAN. February 22. Play In the fifth Test, which was be- gun yesterday, was curtailed to 80 minutes, because of rain. Chapman won the toss and put South Africa In on a drying wicket. Fortunately, the wicket dried slowly and on the easy side. The start was delayed 20 minutes because the balls were not the correct size, owing to the manufacturer'^ mis take. Every combination of b-f Is available made the wickets nine and a half Inches wide, in?t&lt;H?H of the regulation nine niches. It was finally decided to cut the bails down. Chapman lodged an official com plaint with the South African Board of Control, Who acknowledged it as legitimate, as the delay might have had a serious effect on Chapman's tac ttcs. Chapman relied mainly on his spin bowlers, who were supported by such good fielding that Siedle and fclltchell were able to score only 27 runs in an hour. It was Tate, however, who was t-he most dangero...

Makin, Speaker of the House of Repre- sentatives, remarked that often the dis couragements met in public affairs made him very seriously consider how long he was going to continue in pub lic life. Mr. Makin remarked that he had been rather a sick man during the past fortnight. He felt sometimes that he would like to express his views more widely than was perhaps either dis creet or wise. "The reason politicians do not get on better." he added, 'is because they will not try to understand one an other, and possibly I am in a better position to understand that now than at any other time hi my life. I realise the intolerance, the Impatience and the ungenerous attitude, and one of the re grettable facts is that there is an ab sence of the spirit of God." .

SLOW BATTING BY VICTORIA ONLY 152 RUNS SCORED IN 3½ HOURS RIGG AND WOODFULL BARRACKED In striking contrast to the brilliant rungetting which frequently de- lighted the spectators when Sooth Australia was batting, the slow scoring of the Victorians on Saturday afternoon aroused the first serious bar- racking of the season. Bice', who has gained Inclusion in the Australian team for the Fifth Test, and WoodfoH were tbe principal offenders. Although tbe bowling was not weak, tbe ultra-cautious tactics adopted by the two inter nationals were unjustifiable. When play was resumed in the morning the South Australian tail enders, as in other matches this season, scored runs with surprising ease-. Ixmer gan, the Hero of the first day, failed to add many runs to his overnight score but Grimmett, Walker, and Carl ton scored proliflcally. The two last mentioned added 68 for the last wicket in 5 minutes under the hour, Walker showing maited ability. His ex hibition was reminiscent of the last wic...
