The referendum to be effective must give a majority of votes in the whole of Australia and a major Ity in four of the six states in favor of the amendment sought to Section 92. Because the matter is one of extreme urgency the Federal parliament which was to have met on september 10, will now be summoned in about four weeks to Deal with the necessary legis lation for the conduct of the proposed referendum. The referendum will Fol Low three months after the final enact ment of the legislation by the Senate. When interviewed today the Premier or. Butler expressed the belief that the whole question would be reviewed at the premiers conference a postponement of which he regarded As Likely. He Felt sure that Means would be found to overcome the difficulties caused by the privy Council s Deci Sion and thought that the common wealth would not take any action without first consulting the states. Or. Butler said that the decision was one of great magnitude although he did not View it with any great alarm. To some extent at least the privy Council decision would entail the Revi Sion of legislation in Force or contemplated. Referring to legislation for the fixing principally of a Home consumption Price for wheat or. Butler said that there were other constitutional difficulties involved in that scheme. He did not anticipate any dislocation of present marketing systems until the governments of Australia had had time to reconsider the whole position. States9 fears of amendment Melbourne saturday. With the dried fruits and butter industries faced with chaos As a result of the privy Council ruling the Federal govern ment Realises from past experience that it would be impossible to achieve unanimity among the states on any amendment to the Section in time to prevent the collapse of the marketing Structure. Three states Western Australia Tasmania and South Australia to ome extent Ijmte shown their an Suun Nesb to Sanction any Amend ment be ease they fear that it would give sweeping Powers to the Commonwealth and eliminate All state control of marketing.

Lyons said that he expected the full text of the privy Council s judg ment to be cabled in time for discus Sion by Federal Cabinet on tuesday. The two industries mainly affected were dried fruits and butter added or Lyons. The decision also meant that without adequate Commonwealth Powers the projected legislation for a Home consumption Price for wheat could not be enacje4� -,.-v All Commonwealth marketing legis lation and some state marketing boards Are rendered ineffective by the decision of the privy Council. Those affected Are dried fruits control Board. Commonwealth Dairy produce equalisation committee Ltd. Dairy products boards created in Victoria new South Wales and Queensland to give effect to the equalisation scheme. Boards which have been set up purely to control exports Are not affected because their functions do not interfere with interstate Trade. Among them Are Dairy produce Export control Board. Canned fruits control Board and australian meat Board. According to or. W. K. Fullagar k.c., the privy Council judgment does not in any Way affect Commonwealth transport legislation. Alternative scheme submitted because the australian dried fruits association covers 95 Der cent of the production of dried fruits in austra Lia it is not expected by officials of the association that any difficulties will be experienced in the arrangements for Export of dried fruit As a result of the priv Council decision. Members of the association Are Gene rally agreeable to the present quotas for Export. Thev recognise that the decision Means that growers who do not desire to Export Are not bound to do so now. If a sufficient number of growers decided not to Export. The result of sell in e their products on the local Market would create such a depression of prices As to produce chaos in the local Market. That could be prevented by members adhering to quota arrange ments for Export an alternative scheme to the pre sent marketing system oreo red in anticipation of the privy coun cil s decision has been submitted to the Federal government Accord ing to the president of the .

England s team to meet India in the second test at Manchester on july 25 was announced today. It is expected to offer a guide to the personnel of the . Side to tour Australia. The team to play India is g o. Allen Middlesex. E. W. V. Robins Middlesex. I w. K. Hammond Gloucester. J m. Leyland Yorkshire. J h. Verity Yorkshire. L. B. Fishlock Surrey. J. Hardstaff Notts. G. Duckworth Lancashire. A. Fagg Kent. J h. Gimblett Somerset. J a. R. Cover Surrey. The . Selectors have held Long meetings but Many problems remain to be solved. Critics gathered at lord s this week were almost unanimously pessimistic asking who was going to dismiss Brad Man and Mccabe. Some were asking also who would help o Reilly to get England out. There is no shortage of English fast bowlers although none is of Lar Vood s class but medium Pace Talent except Stephenson is More difficult to find and spin bowlers Likely to be Good enough for Australia Are still scarcer. The critics generally Are asking Why Stephenson was not chosen against India following his 9 for 46 in the lord s match this week. The daily mail laments Maryle Bone s policy of secrecy in preventing an explanation of Stephenson s non selection. Other critics approve the inclusion of the left handers Leyland Fishlock and fagg because they say Grimmett is reputed to dislike batsmen of that Type. Gover has earned his selection by sheer hard work but although he is a grand cricketer it is doubtful whether he possesses sufficient Devil to get rid of those terrible australians says one critic. The non selection of Wyatt is sur prising. Nevertheless he is out of form and has probably had too much Cricket recently. But we will certainly need him in Australia players England May choose by the mail Cricket writer England s touring Cricket Side to visit Australia will be chosen by the . Selectors this week end. England won the ashes in Australia in 1932-3 with its now famous leg theory attack. Will the team selected attempt to Emu late Jardine s Success with an off theory offensive while there is no Bowler in the Field with the devastating Speed of Larwood the English selectors have at their com Mand several men Able to make the Ball whip Back from the off at medium fast Pace. Two Are a. R. Gover of Surrey and j. W. A. Stephenson the Young army and Essex Bowler. They seem to have Marde themselves certainties by their deeds in the gentlemen v. Players game this week. Used by Maurice Tate most of Australia s test batsmen have had Little experience of the new Rule and they May find it difficult at first to Cope with a Ball lifting sharply off the pitch and breaking Back into their stumps. Maurice Tate used this Ball successfully in 1924 and 1928, Al though with him it was Only one of a variety of methods used to beat the batsman. Gimblett will probably be one of the opening batsmen. Others in the running for the no. 1 or no. 2 positions Are Wyatt of Warwickshire Mitchell of Yorkshire and fagg of Kent. One of these must be omitted. Mitchell s slip Fielding ability May gain him the pre Ference Over the others. Hammond and Leyland appear to be certainties while Hardstaff and Robins must also be placed in that category. The latter is the Only right Arm spin Bowler of class in England. Whether Captain or not. Holmes should gain a place on his Fine batting form in county Cricket this season. His All round ability will count heavily in his favor. One More place remains for a bats Man and a left hander will probably be chosen. Two stand out. They Are James Langridge the Sussex All Rounder who visited Australia last summer with Holmes . Team and l. B. Fishlock of Surrey. It is difficult to choose Between the two but the selectors May give Langridge the preference because of his left Arm length Bowling. Duckworth can be numbered among the certainties As first Wience keeper. There is More Competition for the Posi Tion of understudy but n. Mccorkell the diminutive Hampshire keeper seems to be favorite. Five Fustish bowlers apart from Allen and Holmes Are possibilities. Bowes is Likely to be Given preference with Gover and Stephenson As the two medium fast men. Fames Essex and Copson Derbyshire Are rivals for Bowes position but neither has had his experience of australian wickets. Verity automatically walks into the sixteenth place which would make the team g. O. Alien Middlesex Captain. E. R. T. Holmes Surre Icecap Tain. R. W. V. Robins Middlesex. H. Gimblett Somerset. A. Fagg Kent. W. R. Hammond Gloucester. J. Hardstaff Notts. M. Leyland Yorkshire. Jas. Langridge Sussex. J. W a. Stephenson Essex. H. Verity Yorkshire. W. E. Bowes Yorkshire. A. R. Gover Surrey. A.

Quist won the first set against von Cramm 64, but in the first game of the second fell heavily and Hurt his right ankle. Play was held up while doctors were called. After a Short adjournment play was resumed and inn Cramm won the second set. 6 4. Herr Kleinschroth manager of the German team said that Henkel did not intend to finish the match As he realised that he could not last the full distance. It is understood that Lund will part Ner von Cramm in the doubles if Hen Kel is not fit on monday. But it is obvious that the germans who have no singles players except von Cramm and Henkel capable of extending the australians Are banking on Henkel s recovering in time to give quist a real match. He could not have been scratched for one single and have played in the other. Henkel until today had not lost a set in the Davis cup singles of 1936. The weather was threatening and the Tarpaulin was not removed from the court until just before play began. A fierce wind made conditions a plea j Sant. Henkel was still weak alter the j Chiu be caught recently and the decision to play him was deferred As late As possible. The number one court was not an imposing setting for the match but was chosen to preserve the Centre court turf for the Challenge round. Four thousand people were present when Crawford and Henkel began the first match of the rubber. The court was extremely fast. Hen Kel foot faulted on his first service and Crawford took the game to 15 when Henkel double faulted. Crawford won his service to love a Fine Ace Down the German s Centre line following deep and finely placed driving and slices to Henkel s Back hand. Henkel was slow to get going in the troublesome wind which also caused Crawford to miss time some shots but be won the third with drives which twice found Crawford on his wrong foot. Superb backhand shot Henkel won the third game on his service but Crawford replied with a love game. In the fifth game Crawford produced a super backhand drive for which he stretched to his full length. He played the Ball very Low sending it flying Back past forehand Henkel standing helpless and astonished in mid court Henkel made a hard fight in this game but his forehand was unreliable on Short balls while Craw Ford often coming up volleyed with deadly sureness. Henkel seemed weak and Apa thetic Bis game lacking its usual determination and Bis service being less fierce than snal he was unable greatly to trouble Crawford who led 4 1 when be took the German s service to 15. Crawford was thus far very much the master of his opponent who was out of health and form but nevertheless by courageous retrieving took the seventh game to service. Crawford following crisply took the eighth for the set in 15 minutes. The struggle thus far was unequal Crawford s admirable form showing a close concentration in disturbing conditions. Why Henkel plated Henkel took the seventh game to love Crawford striking a Patch of errors in returning the other s service. That ended Henkel s resistance. Craw Ford won the set in 20 minutes. At that stage the Umpire announced the retirement of Henkel As he was unable to continue. It had been obvious from the Start that Henkel who is normally a strenuous player was not himself. It is understood that Bis decision to play was not due to the Hope of beat ing Crawford but of regaining sufficient strength Over the week end to give him a Chance against quist. Evenly matched the times Tennis writer says that it is difficult to think of two teams More evenly matched. The australians form in the Wimbledon championship was top poor to be True. If the australians Are at Fher Best they will probably win. The draw if anything favors Australia who. Nevertheless must make the most of their chances Wallis Myers in the daily Tele graph says that quist is playing much More confidently now than he did in the championships.
