One reason for this Early activity lies in the fact that for the 1939 games we Are returning to till season of the year in which they were played before the War a the month of june. Two reasons entered into the decision to do this. One was the Hope for avoidance of the sometimes embarrassing autumn Rains of late september and the other was a desire to avoid overshadowing the National open championship which in recent years assumed its rightful place As a major sports event. Our season then will have two peaks the International cup contests in june and the National championship in september. The past year saw a Normal and healthy growth in the game.
