Cricket PREPARING FOR NEW SEASON The recent fine weather is a reminder that the new cricket season is not far away and W.A.C.A. clubs have been hold ing annual meetings in pre paration for the start of the 1948-49 competitions. At Subiaco's annual meeting the voting for the positions of delegates to the W.A.C.A. was keen. Mr. T. E. Jones won the poll and Messrs. A. D. Drew and L. Jones tied. On the casting vote of the returning officer Mr. Drew was elected. In 1924 when Mt. Lawley club was formed Mr. R. G. Heath was appointed secretary. He has held that office ever since and this season will be his 25th as secretary of the club. Voting for the Mt. Lawley committee brought a surprising result as only one of last year's com mitteemen-Mr. A. C. Randell was re-elected. In his annual report Mr. Heath said that 95 players at tended practice during last year, which augured well for the coming season. The club will agaip enter four teams in the competition.
