Australia lauded in England lord Somers in Adelaide lord Sorters former governor of Vic Toria has come out to Australia on the Moldavia on a Holiday trip. He said in Adelaide today that people in England admired Australia for the wonderful recovery it had made from its financial and economic difficulties. They Are Prat inc australians for hav ing accepted the premiers plan which involved Jerreat sacrifices and for determining to balance their budgets and pay their debts said lord Somers. If the rest of the world had done As much As Australia has done towards re covery we All might be wearing a different pair of shoes today. Genius of britons although i am an anti conference Man. 1 believe that Ottawa paved the Way for Treater co operation Between different parts of our great Empire. It will help us to Market exports better. The closer the different parts of the Empire Are together Goa after and bet we ? ? the 3 effect Fiat the Empire will have on world politics. I am a great believer in the Genius of the British race. The stronger the lord Somers off to Golf Empire the better for the world a a whole lord Somers said. And no one could doubt the sincerity of these remarks from a Man who endeared himself to All australians with whom he came into Contact. To fulfil Promise he is the idol of the younger people of Victoria and the main object of his pre a visit to Australia is to fulfil a pro life be made to Boye in the Camp he of coded in Victoria that he would return o the Camp in 1933. This Camp is known throughout Australia and it came into being during lord Somers term As governor of Victoria thinking of All the dreams of youth and Liow the boys of every station of life longed for an Ideal sport and Camp he decided to help the Young australians. In 10 Days time i shall be with the boys in my Camp and nothing will give me greater pleasure than to be staying with them lord Somers said As he stepped off the Moldavia today dressed in Khaki Slacks and carrying a bag of Golf Sticks Over his shoulder. He looked More like a care free Young australian from his Camp in Victoria than an sex governor. Attack refreshed by the dismissal of three j Good batsmen Early in the piece. I would i favor him going up one or two on the. Kiel and for Pone Ford to be the last of the recognised batsmen o Reilly the danger Australia s attack on Friday will be the same As that which routed England in Melbourne and it is Likely that o Beilly will again be the most destructive Bowler in the Side. Ironmonger can be depended upon to keep an end going with his fault less length deliveries and the lion hearted Wall is almost sure to take some wickets. O Reilly bowled impressively in his last appearance in Adelaide and there is no doubt that he can be depended upon to give Jardine a men an anxious time. As the wicket will provide difficulties Foi j the English bowlers England s selector spend much time considering Tiv learn. It is certain that at least one and lion ably two of the fast men will give to spin bowlers. Bowes May b. Dropped while it is problematical whether England can afford to place Larwood. J Allen and Voce in the Field together. I it would not be surprising if Allen or Voce were Given a spell and places made Tor Tate and Verity. Tate would Streng then the batting and add variety to the attack. Brown and Mitchell the two slow Bow Lere also have claims for inclusion and. Rush to see Adelaide test match influx of visitors will Start in Earnest on monday Ponsford May be in team Early next week the influx of visitors to Adelaide for the important third test match on the Adelaide Oval will begin in Earnest and before Friday it is Likely that this City will see one of the biggest test crowds on record. ? As the match draws near there is keen discussion on the probable teams that will fight for Australia and England Tho state of the weather and the condition of the wicket competent judges of the game think thata Hanges will be made in both teams. In the australian Side it is predicted that Ponsford will regain the place which he lost in the Melbourne match. Ernie Jones the former inter National express Bowler pins his Faith to Australia. He tipped them to win j the second test in Melbourne after \ the Small tally of 228 in the first innings. There is a qualification to the forecast of Ernie Jones. He is looking to the Ade Laide wicket to uphold its reputation for lasting for several Days. If the wicket goes like it has in the big mat 2hes played in Adelaide this season the result will depend on the toes he said. In those circumstances the team that wins the toss should win the match the former test fast Bowler had in mind the collapse of Victoria and new South Wales before the onslaught of Wall and Tobin in two of the Sheffield shield games played on the Adelaide ova. The ultimate Choice of players to take the Field for both sides is causing Ani mated discussion. There again the wicket is playing a big part and it will no doubt. Affect the discussions of the selectors. J the Adelaide Oval wicket is not Likely to give the fast bowlers any assistance and after the Sydney and Melbourne wickets the batsmen should have an easy task. With these Points in mind the critics Are urging the exclusion of at least one of Australia s defensive bats men to make room for a stroke player. Ponsford s Chance if that is done the Only logical move is to leave o Brien out and replace him with Ponsford. The victorian left hand a did Well in the second test by keeping his wicket up at critical stages of both inn Ings. But the wicket will alter the Posi Tion Here. Adelaide Cricket followers Are not Likely to see England s full last Battery in to Tion and it is Vairry certain that the wicket will Force a partial return to rhe orthodox off attack. With that to be expected Australia can afford to depend on Woodfull and Fingleton to hold the fort for some time while the inclusion of Ponsford later would give the Side a stroke and a player who could play the Rock if circumstances called for it. Ernie Jones thinks that both Brad Man and Richardson should be promoted on the batting list. Bradman has practically had to open in recent matches he said. Jackson faced the fast men in the test in Adelaide on the last English tour and he made a Century. I think Bradman could to the same. The reason for Richardson being placed Low Down on the batting list is Obj Oiw he has been put there to Knock the tired Bowling about. But he has not had a Chance because he has been facing an 5 some reluctance has been a Hovin to playing Tate it would not Surprise to Brown included. Mitchell has reaped a crop of wicket in the country and tasmanian matches but he would be meeting Batemen of a better calibre in the test. Brown be useful on the matting list and if a plow Bowler is wanted he May be preferred. Duckworth s claims the wicket keeping position is far from decided. Ames has not done the Job for which he was included to make runs and he has a serious rival in Duckworth of r the keeping position. The batsmen should provide no difficulties. Australia is Likely to Fin i set Cliffe Hammond and perhaps Jar be the stumbling blocks on the Adelaide wicket. The English skipper has failed to far but lie is too Good a Bat to keep going As cheaply As in Sydney and Melbourne. Our batsmen Are As Good As eng lands and i think we can expect to see 400 hoisted for the first innings by each Side said Ernie Jones. Still the last two turns at the wickets will Tell the tale and i expect Australia to win again reports from City and suburban hotels Point to All rec6rds being broken for at Tendance. Never before has interest been so intense As at present. The eng Lish Shock tactics have aroused much comment and As the australians Are now expected to sound the death Knell of the leg theory the people Are congregating to see them do it. Excursion fares on the railways both country and interstate give an added inducement for people to visit Adelaide. Note keepers in the City and the principal Beach resorts report full houses for test week.

Saturday that the j ung Lehmen still believe that the Mel Bourne wicket was a Factor in eng ? land s loss of the second test was i shown by a statement made by the English Captain Jardine at an offi Cial luncheon at Bendigo today. Jardine said that he was charmed with the Bendigo ground with its fringe of elms and Willows and More so by the wicket which was the Best of the last three on which the team had played. The previous two wicket be on which the team had placed were the lae pot at Hobart and the test wicket in Melbourne. 1 1 a 1 1 Tui Man Iii in w m i i Imit i i my Nini m 1 1 to u mum i i in to fire sweeps Miles of country crop destroyed at Owen 700 fight Blaze Owen saturday.
