Bowling. BY BOWLER. PREMIERSHIP WON BY S.M.C.C. Saturday last saw the final game for the premiership on the St. Kilda green where there was a large attendance. . he weather could have been a trifle netter as far as bowling was con crned, but the prevailing conditions (dull with a slight fall of rain) did not militate to any big extent towards a real good display of bowling on both sides: This is S.M.C.C.'s first premiership victory, and at the conclusion of the game they received many congratula Lions, amongst those to felicitate them on their victory being Mr. S. Nathan (President of the V.B.A.). Carlton were also warmly congratu lated on the excellent showing they had made.

Saturday Pops. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 April 1914

Saturday Pops. The first of a series of Saturday Pops was given in the Auditorium on Saturday evening last, under the direction of Messrs. J. and N. Tait. The hall was crowded by an en thusiastic audience; in fact, they were too much so, as they demanded an encore to nearly every item, which, we think, is hardly fair to the per formers. The star feature of the programme was the re-appearance in Melbourne of Madame Slapoffski, after her triumphs on the concert platform in the old world. She delighted the audience with the artistic rendering of her numbers, and had to submit to numerous recalls. The other artists supporting her were, Madame Maggie Stirling, Miss Elsie Treweek, Miss Noel Geddes, Mr. Oswald Rippon, Mr. Fred Collier, and Herr Louis Hatten bach. Mr. Harold Elvins made an efficient accil.imanist. Madame Slapoffski has again been engaged for the second concert this evening.

CRICKET. SEMI-FINAL MATCH. ST. KILDA . V. NORTH MEL BOURNE. Pennant cricketers were unfor tunate with the weather on Saturday last, for their semi-final matches. The wicket on the St. Kilda Cricket Ground, where the above match was played, was in a bad state, but .the rain kept off during the afternoon, with tile exception of a slight shower or two. The unsatisfactory part of a game played under these conditions is that the element of luck steps in, and the best team might not win. There was a good crowd present to I witness the game, the seating space in both pavilions being occupied. Armstrong, the St. Kilda captain, won the toss, and sent North Melbourne in i to bat. Considering the state of the wicket, the latter did very well in compiling 136 runs. The bulk of the runs were made by the veteran, H. Stuckey, whose great experience on bad wickets stood him in good stead. His 46 was certainly an admirable display under the circunistances. The St. Kilda bowlers divided the wickets, ...
