ENGLAND v. WARATAHS
Relayed from Twickenham
Commentator. Capt. H. B. T. WAKELAM
THIS is the first International at Twickenham this season, and the first time the English team has taken the field. Their opponents arc even more interesting than the usual members of the five-sided championship, for the touring Australians have demolished in turn practically all our best sides, and in their previous international matches they have shown that they aro one of those teams that play better the harder they are pressed. As the England XV has never played together before, and contains one or two rather experimental choices, there will be not only a good game, but probably a close finish, and any amount of excitement in the stands.

His first book was published half-a-century ago, and since then his many volumes on literary subjects (amongst the most recent. are ' Books on the Table ' and ' Silhouettes ') and his weekly articles in The Sunday Times have established him amongst the most distinguished living critics of literature. But his masterpiece is undoubtedly ' Father and Son.' a delicate autobiography published in 1907, and crowned by the French Academy in 1913.
