'Rugby Football: The New Rules'
A. F. HAMILTON-SMYTHE
This evening A. F. Hamilton-Smythe is to explain the new rules of Rugby football, and who can know the game better than a player who has broken most of the bones in his body in its cause ? „
Hamilton-Smythe is a member of Blackheath and a Cambridge Double Blue (Rugger and Boxing). He has played first-class and junior Club Rugger in the four home countries, and in France, Germany, and the Argentine.
Six years ago when he was in Budapest in the Legation, the Hungarian Minister of Physical Culture and Hygiene called on him with a convoy of Counts and Barons. They placed the local regiment of Guards at his disposal and asked him to start Rugger. But as there was three feet of snow on the ground, and the Rugger Season would only have been one of three months, the idea petered out.
As a fly-half and centre three-quarter he was always erratic, and holds some unorthodox views on tactics and play.
His talk this evening on the new rules will be both informative and to the point. He summarises them as follows: 1. Front row of the scrummage ; 2. The ball into the scrum ; 3. Scrummaging; 4. Leaving the field; 5. Goal or no goal ; 6. Other points, such as free kicks and penalties, and spectators behind th; goal line.

Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
Here is a programme of popular favourites. Elisabeth Welch , of Nymph Errant and ' Soft Lights and Sweet Music ' fame, is to give a selection of her songs. She is featured in ' People You Hear ' on page 762.
Twenty years ago Julian Rose arrived in Philadelphia and walked past the City Hall because the tram fare was thirteen cents and he had not got it to spare. To-day he is known to millions of listeners and his Hebrew impersonations are famous in four continents.
Billy Reid is one of the big names in the accordion world. He has sold over 100,000 records.
There is probably no more polished act than that of Elsie and Doris Waters. Both play the piano. Elsie also plays the violin. Doris sings and tells stories. They write their own material and are still unshingled.
Max and Harry Nesbitt , the ukulele stars, are touring Great Britain and coming down from Scotland especially to broadcast tonight.
