International Rugby Match, by Mr. J. M' MACLENNAN
S.B. from Edinburgh
IN its short history as a Rugby International venue, the Murrayfield ground has already acquired a great reputation as the scene of memorable matches, and there is every prospect of another being added to the list this afternoon. The odds. of course, are on Scotland. Always very hard to beat at home, they bid fair to be as formidable a team this year as they were last season, when they shared the Championship with Ireland. In beating the all-conquering Waratahs they gave indications of form that no country in the championship can disregard, and their victory at Colombes, though not of equal significance, was another reassuring sign for their supporters. Wales, on the other hand, are a team whose possibihtcs cannot yet be accurately judged, but even on the firm turf of Murrayfield they are always liable to spring a surprise, and no Scotsman in the stands can feel quite happy about the result until the final whistle blows. English sportsmen will feel particularly interested in today's game, as it will give a very good lino on form for the Calcutta Cup match at Twickenham on March 17.

Mr. Valentine Williams may claim to have added to tho gallery of master criminals a worthy companion to Dr. Moriarty, Carl Petersen , and the Four Just Men. Certainly no lover of crime stories will be able to stay away from his wireless set tonight, when Mr. Valentino Williams will broadcast an example of the particular brand of fiction which has so often intrigued them in the past.
