20 THE OBSERVER, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1957 Racing Midget II Wins Big Prize By John Hislop ANOTHER good race went to France at Ascot yesterday when the favourite. Midget II, won the valuable Queen Elizabeth II Stakes by half a length from the out-lider Bellborough, with her compatriot El Reljcano a length away, Lhard, and lack Ketch fourth. Although Midget II was an obvious choice on form, she had not much in hand of El Relicano on their running together m France, while both Even Star and Jack Ketch were hough! 10 have at leas firsi-rsie outside chances.

Midget 11 ran on well, though laying her ears back and switching her tail as she always does, and passod the post rather a comfortable half-length to the good.

Magne Lysiad, Norwegian Scandinavian sport of orientation, described below. Running at Night in Norway From CHRISTOPHER BRASHER Trondhetm, September 28 T HAVE just taken part, for ihe A first time in one of the best sportt in the work. It is difficult to know what to call it. The Norwegians call it " orientation," and it involves cross-country running with a map and compass. It is tremendously popular all over Scandtnarvia, and the Norwegians have wondered why il i unknown in Britain. Hence an mutation to vimt Norway lo take part in a night orientation race and watch the Scandinavian championship which siarr here in Trondheim 10-m or row morning. wasn't entirely conlident about this mghl orientation race. We changed in a Home Guard clubhouse just outside Oslo. A veteran competitor anyone over 35 said that he had jiarted his onematton in a niflht race, too. One runner fell over a chfi and never came back. Shine Your Torch In a night race everyone starts at the same time, but in a normal day race the competitors leave at minute intervals along a marked track to the true start, where they are given a map .showing their posiiion and that of the first control. With the aid of a compass they must get to ihe hrst control by the last-cst route, The country is densely wooded and the terrain, all hiH.s and valleys, looks as if i had been sculptured by an immense Atlantic gale. Accuracy is essential, ft is easy to pass within 10 yards of a control and mijis it, particularly at night, when you have to shine your torch directly on lo the red reflector marking the post. At the control your map is stamped and you are given the position of the next control and so on until the finwh, Our course was four miles long with six controls. At 7 p.m. we lined up two by rwo and trotted off to the start along the road and then siraight up info the forest. Wc looked like a cross between a party of speleologists and a team of baseball players off for vigorous evening t training. The organiser lost the start, but 80 lorches combing through the woods soon pinpointed it. There were last-minute instructions io report back hy 10.15 p.m. whatever happened, a marked map face down under the foot of one partner, and then we were off. By the time I had soried the direc-lion out everyone else was away, lights fanning out between the trees and disappearing at immense speed. We followed in the wake of a man with denim shorts and braces over long, white gaberdine ski trousers. It looked as if Walt Dttney was reconstructing an Alaskan gold rush. My partner, Rolf Engh, and I landed up in a swamp, marsh, or bog according to the Norwegian-English dictionary. It was very wet. Lawn Thrilling Match Won by Rosewall By TONY ItTEN ROSEWALL, making his first appearance in this country as a prcifessiopal, won trie international tournament at Wembley last night when he defeated Pancho Segura by 16, 63, 64, 36, 6- A. li w ihrilling dwssboard match without the big hitting of jkwoch finals, but with each player moving lhe other about over the full Width and depth of the court in a leries of beautifully played ralhcv The Altai must fee viewed in- the tight ot Scgura's foftr and a half hours on court the previous evening.

He took the opening jet quickly while Rosewall was slip searching; for his touch. It did not cgmc until midway through the second syt when the Australian's increasing control began to make. Segura stretch. When Rosewall took the Ihird set wuh increasing confidence, Segura appeared to be weakening, But hack he came at Rosewall in the fourth set. when some of the finest rallies of lhe match were ptayed. The final set was a thriller, with Segura once again calling on hidden reserves of energy to pull back Rosewall from a .1 love lead to 3 all. tn a desperate finish with Segura beginning to suffer cramp in bit right hand and leg. the fresher Rpstwtrif took lhe two dnd a half hoar match in the tenth game. Few people who have watched the lawn tennis can have been disappointed in the standard of play Among the top players (here was a. consistency and accuracy of return thai was a joy to watch. In particular the art of returning the service which is the outstanding weakness in the amateur game to-day, was superbly demonstrated by Rosewall, Segura. Gonzales and Kramer . These players show their class unmis v 0 Arnulf Cundersen champion rot the unfamiliar There was a marsh on either side of the control we could go either north or south. It was very dark. A string of lights mined northwards past us on their way to Control 2. We went south, hit the control, stamped our map and marked our new direction. The next control was easier just below a line of chfls. We took the long way to Control 3 down through the woods, on to the road and then up a stream to the post. We were certain not to miss it that way. Roif disappeared up the road faster than my weekly game of squash allowed nw to run. This lime wc walked straight into the control while the lights of the parties that had come directly through the woods hunted 5 yards to our left. At the pace wc were going I thought we must be winning by an acre or two of wood, but Roff thought we weren't doing so well. The next control was in a swamp. We beaded west off our ridge, down through steep rocks and landed in it up to our knees. A Swiss r a rty l ra ini ng for tomorrow's international were splashing about at the other end. We circled the area twice, then ihe Swiss discovered it was fiva minutes after the control should have gone home. ' Let's all go home." We plunsed back into i he wood . skirted a lake and 15 minutes later stepped out of the trees on to the road within 10 yards of the headquarters. Accuracy comes easily when it in" nccesviry. The winners had been back an hour already )4 minules ahead of the second pair. Thcy are very experienced competitors, but the best people at night aren't always the best by day." The Norwegian champion. Maenc Lystad, the favourite for to-morrow's race, is in a class of his own. He won the Norwegian championship last Sunday by 1? minules. He is 25, a forestry worker just this side of ihe Swedish border, and 41 his life and happiness are in the forest." He has a special style of run nine, throwing his feet backwards and sideways like a woman running for a bos. It prevents his feet getting jammed between boulders. Never Relax Orientation is very like a motor rallv without the car. It is a magnificent combination of physical exercise and mental concent ration. If you relax your concentration for one minute, then you are lost. The Danes. Swedes and Swiss all adapt the conditions of the race to their own terrain. Scotland or. Wales could ma tch the Norwegian coun i ry . but you could also hold an orientation race in Epping Forest or Richmond Park A few people might even lose themselves in such a race in Hyde Park. Britain should try one .soon : it reouires only a map, a compass and a little energy. Tennis MO H RAM takably by the low percentage of unforced errors they make. Theu high degree of allround control demands that each shall win points by positive play, for they can enpect little in tbe way of loosely played strokes. Perhaps the only disappointment in the' tournament was the inability of the Wimbledon champion, Hoad, to measure up to this high class of play. Kramer a thicker, slower player than five yean ago showed up the present inconsistencies in Head's game. It is a sobering thought lhat Hood, who strode through the Wimbledon cham-pionshipsi like a Colossus bst June, is Row having to serve an apprenticeship in an altogether different class of lawn tennis. Lack of Familiarity His play, I thought, showed signs ol a lack of familiarity with the speed of the court. His manner of returning service on the backhand with a lifted stroke demands greater precision than he has -yet been amc to develop on this type of indoor court. His downfall came through this less reliable return probably due as much lo the lack of real opposition he found in the amateur game as from any other cause. Yci it is not difficult to imagine Hoad as king of them all after a year or two's practice in this high-pressure play. Gonzales's unlooked-for loss in the femi-hnals to lhat urcless bundle of energy, Pancbo Segura. may not yet be a sign of the champion's waning powers. He did not appear entirely tit. Certainly be was less buovant of manner and stride during this maich. For a plavcr who has always been noted for the power and consisicncy of his service. Gonzales showed a surprising deficiency in the number of first-service balls he was able to put into court against Segura. In lawn tenms lo scrse well is to play well, and with the edge gone from lhe charn- f non's strongest weapon, his game was ar below the razor-sharp play he produced tn that magnificent final against Sedgroan last year. Soccer Round-up Flu Affects Gates and Results By a Staff Reporter INFLUENZA left its mark on yesterday's games, causing abandonment of the Everton-Blackpool match in the First Division and the Gateshead-Mansfield match in the Third Division North. In addition nearly half the League clubs lost players; while attendances were less than normal a drop of more than 100,000 from last week's figure. It was a day when result could not be taken too seriously. In the First Division, Manchester United lost for lhe third time in four matches when Wolverhampton Wanderers beat them 3 1. But they were unfortunate to have to field four reserves when they were struggling to regain their old ascendancy. Wolverhampton's victory broueht them level at the too of the table with Nottingham Forest, whose winning run was ended by West Bromwich Albion, another team mat is well up with the leaders. The other newcomers to the Division. Leicester City, are still at lhe opposite end of the table, and there was little to cheer them in an overwhelming defeat by Aston Villa. With Froggart missing in the centre. Villa's forwards moved easily through the defence and they were four goals up by the interval. Crowlher and Saward kept them on the attack afterwards, but Moms reduced the lead before McParland, who had missed a number of chances, scored Villa's fifth near the end. Manchester City, reverting to their norfnal tactics, were more than a match for Tottenham Hotspur. After having 15 goals scored against them in two games they had the satisfaction of scoring live themselves, with early goals by Johnstone and Hayes getting them off to a flying start. In the Second Division, Charlton Athletic increased Ihcir lead by defeating Liverpool; their nearest rivals now are Blackburn Rovers and Fulham. While Blackbun come second on goal average after their 4 0 win at Swansea, Fulham, with Haynes at his most brilliant, beat Sheffield United 53. With the England insides passes opening the wa, Brntlcy and Dwignt had soon put Fulham two up, and Dwight went on to complete his hat-trick. Sheffield United were still in the nghl at 4 3, but a further goal from Dwight and anolher from Stevens settled the issue. Appropriately enough, the two promoted clubs, Ipswich Town and Derby County, drew their match 2 2. This was one of only four drawn games in all the Leagues an unusual feature of the day's play. At the foot of the lahlc, Cardiff O'ly, who must be wondering if they will emulate Derby County's disastrous slide from First to Third Division, gained hope and points from a victory over Doncaster, the result of a goal by Hewitt just before the interval. M-anchester City Back to Life By John Jones Manchester C. 5 Tottenham H...1 VTiTH Marsdcn playing in the " reserve icamT Ewing resumed his normal third back posiiion yesterday; Manchester City have reverted to orthodox policies of defence. Ewing is Herbert Chapman's idea of a defensive centre-half; ne is, to put it bluntly, a bit of a bath plug, lacking the flexibility and instinct for coumcr-11 1 lack that distinguishes Wright. Mac-Untay and one or two others. But he is effective in defence, and he plaed T big part in subduing a Tottenham atlnck which, after the lirst 10 minutes, rarely looked dnngemuv ToUenliLini's single goal was. in fjcl. scored b ihe M.mchi'sier nghi-bjck, Branag.m, ho knocked the bull out of his own goal-k.eper hands. It Tottenham's attack was muted, iheir defensive tactics wcrj questionable. Playing rwo attacking wing-halves, and with Stoke? and Durtmorc lying up Held, they ex peeled too much of Harnier in the wide middle spaces. Slovenly Four of Manchester's Jive goal were due to slow recovery or slovenly marking. Johnstone scored in 19 minutes, after goalkeeper Reynolds had been hit in the face by a hard drive from Fugim. Ten minules later Haves s!iprd through a wide gap and added a second. The fourth goal went in, off the outside of Hayes's boot, from a low-flying corner kick, and the fifth coal, too. was a sad spectacle. A misdirected backward pass found outside-left Fagan away on his own. and he turned inside lo offex Johnstone an easy shot. Thai meant two goals for Johnstone, who had a thoroughly cheerful afternoon in his rami liar role of deep-lying " centre-forward. The whole Manchesicr team 'have woken from nightmare: once again ihev arc their old, opportunist, none-loo-skilful selves.

PaVson Charlton 5 Liverpool 1 PHARLTON ATHLETIC strength-ened their position at the head of the Second Division yesterday When they beat their nearest rivals, Liverpool, by five goals to one. Against a team much weakened hy illness they played with poise and seemed lo have gat their confidence back. Their main strength, though, hes now in the concerted central atuck of Ayrc. Lcary and Summers all ccntre-forward5 by experience and inclination, all opportunists in front of goal. Contrast Thev make a cleverly contrasted Irio, with Summers, large and forceful, harging down ihe middle to distract tbe ccmrc-half while Ayrcs, small and swifl, darts m lo seize any loose ball, and Lcjry, subtle and deliberate, creates the openings which all are quick to take, from their power m attack came also a weakness in defence, for wnh the three insides usually lying far up there was a gap in mid-field into which the opposition coulrj move at will, Charlton's covering in front of goal was solid enough, but even so they appeared lo be taking calculated risks, relying on their forwards 10 score often enough lo outweigh anything Liverpool mighi do. They were soon rewarded. Lcary heat his man cleverly and sent Ayre racing away on tbe left. With the defence wailing for a high centre be passed hard along the ground, and Leary moved up with perfect understanding to flick the ball in. Immediately, Ayre beat Younger wilh a tine long shot, only for the hall to curl against the post. But Ayre, feinting to pass to the wing, shot sud-dcnlv, and as the surprised goalkeeper dived across, a ball which had been going wide slid through his hands and screwed gently into goal. Outstripped Now Liverpool, despite their natural lack of teamwork, began to press Charlton hard. particularly where Hammond's nonchalant play gave scope to Melia and Twentyman. But though A'Court on Ihe left-wing received a line flow of passes, and often showed how dangerous he can be, he was well wjlL'hcd hv hdwards -Micr ihe interval Charlton soon went further ahead when Ltarir outstripped ihe defence in a sudden burst of speedy and controlled dribbling before pushing the ball across an open goal. As usual the other insides were waiting, and though Summers's too-deliberate shot allowed Younger lo scramble back and parry il, Ayre pushed the rebound home. Another goal came when Lawne, a clever and intelligent winger, sent in a low shot which Ihe unsiahled goalkeeper could only push out, for Asrc lo score easily. Charlion relaxed sufficiently for Rowley to score with a line left-foot shot just after Duff had swept out a heudcr from him as it was bouncing over the line. Then, to complete a day of misfortune for Liverpool. Byrne passed back neatly into the corner of his own net, leaving Younger dejectedly across his goal. Amateur Results (0) . .t Eaitood (2) Ha mm.
