' Cricket in December '
There was once a cricketer so keen that he kept his copies of the morning paper every day during the cricket season, filed them in order, and read one daily all through the winter, supplementing them, of course, from Wisden as soon as that indispensable work appeared. Eric Gillett is almost as keen.
This evening he is going to reminisce.
He intends to describe incidents that thrilled him last season, and in past seasons, in every kind of cricket. He will tell stories that he has shamelessly filched from cricketers of his acquaintance, and relate some odd experiences of cricket overseas.
Gillett's aim is to appeal to other cricketers (unemployed so unwillingly) who will perhaps turn aside from oiling their bats to spend fifteen minutes in listening to cricket stories which will inevitably remind them of better stories of their own.

St. Francis of Assisi, of whom legend tells that he loved all the creatures of the earth and sky and that he could speak with them, met a flock of birds who stopped and greeted him. He addressed them and spoke of their Creator, saying, ' He preserved your seed in the Ark, that your race might not perish ', and besought all birds' always to praise Him as they ought. The birds listened attentively, and, at the end, spreading their wings, bent their heads reverently before breaking into a great song of praise and joy at the tidings that they were also cared for by God as His creatures. At the end St. Francis gave them his blessing, and the birds flew off chirping with happiness.
