Although two hours were lost at the Oval through the weather Surrey are already well placed to win their seventeenth championship match. Lively bowling by Divecba, who took eight of the nine Glamorgan wickets that fell at a personal cost of. 74 runs, and a splendid innings by Pleass were the outstanding achievements in the curtailed opening day's play between Glamorgan and the Indians at Swansea. Pleass, who could not get a regular place in the county side until recently, went in when Glamorgan had-lost two wickets for eleven. He was fourth out at 168 having batted three and a quarter hours for 75, his highest of the season. Pleass cover drove splendidly but early in his innings was occasionally worried nice tne other Datsmen by Dlvecna, THANKLESS DAY FOR LANCASHIRE From a Cricket Correspondent Two and a quarter hours of preliminary skirmishing in the evening was all that was possible at Old Trafford on Saturday. During this time Yorkshire made 76 for no wicket and one can do no more than hope fervently that the weather will allow the battle to begin In earnest to-day. Inevitably the match is already behind the clock but the wicket has been opened to the elements during the week-end and there is every chance that the bowlers will now find things to their liking. Saturday was a most frustrating day. No sooner had one's hopes of cricket been raised than dull grey clouds and driving rain came iu aasn mem. inus inspection followed inspection, and it is doubtful whether there would nave been any at all had it not been for the faithful thousands who held on in patient anticipation. Certainly the environs of the Ditch were wet and slippery enough to transform the fielders into skating figures and the bowlers into heavy and insecure amphibians ploughing their way to the wickets. The batsmen perhaps were not equally handicapped, but the ball came through unwillingly on to the bat and nothing about the scene was particularly conducive to the creation of glamour or the making of strokes. What little cricket was permitted had much in common with the first day of the Whitsuntide fixture at Leeds. Howard again lost the toss the ninth successive time that Lancashire had done so against Yorkshire and Lowson and Hutton went through the play unbeaten. There were occasional moments of anxiety for them both. Hutton indeed played two or three times at Lomax outside the off stump and missed the ball, while Lowson was not always at home to Tattersall. For the rest Hutton, having almost played on to Berry, at once drove the same bowler straight and beautifully for six, whereupon Berry positioned a man on the boundary behind him and conceded scarcely another run. Hultnn ton. turice hit Tattersall through the covers for four, and when Wharton Vinwleri the crowd consratulated him UDOO Vicpcvmino- a Justice of the Peace and advised him widely upon the Right of Appeal.

Graveney remained very restrained, and accurate bowling to a well-set field blocked his favourite scoring strokes. His century included only seven fours, but as many as 44 singles.

Surridge, who bowled and fielded with his customary 2est. drew the flrst appreciative roar irom the packed terraces when with only six runs scored he removed Martin's off-stump with a vicious inswinger. Then a run later he roused pavilion and terraces alike by diving full length at second slip and clutching a snick by Clay inches from the ground.

Simpson, who had already been missed by Lock, was leg before wicket to a ball from Bedser, that made disconcerting haste off the pitch. Bedser's ascendancy at this stage can be gauged from the fact that his three wickets bad been taken at a cost of only six runs in the course of as many overs. Further misfortune befell ixotungnani wuen at iwciiuy ruuic wd struck painfully on the arm by a sharply rising ball from Bedser and had to retire for attention. During his absence Bedser disposed of Stocks with the aid of a fine catch by Whattaker running full tilt from extra cover. Off the next ball Harvey was missed by Parker in the slips. Poole now returned and proceeded to slam two vigorous fours oft Surridge and when Laker was brought on to deal with such aenance, he promptly nit nun aiso tor tour. Harvey, too, hit Laker for four but at 67 the partnership was ended by Surridge having Poole well caught by Lock at short leg. Lunch was taken with the score only 68 for six. Heavy rain then set in and threatened to end play for the day, but after an hour and a half, suddenly it gave way to bright sunshine. The more optimistic of the spectators who had patiently braved the rain, many without shelter, were rewarded when play was resumed. Within the space of 35 minutes Surrey had captured the remaining four wickets, three of them falling to Surridge. for the addition of only 16 runs. Bedser and Surridge deservedly shared the ten wickets and were supported by the keenest of fielding. Butler and Jepson. bowling fiercely to a threatening field, gave Fletcher and Clark many unpleasant moments at the start of the Surrey innings, but both batsmen were quick to realise that in such conditions attack was the best form of defence and soon began to look for runs The total had been taken briskly to 28 when Fletcher, having twice hooked both bowlers firmly to the boundary, was well caught by Poole at deep fine leg in repeating the stroke. Butler twice rapped Clark's nads sharply in quick succession, but when, after an energetic spell of seventy minutes, Jepson and Butler were rested both Clark and Fishlock dealt so determinedly with Harvev and Mathews, the latter a fast medium left-hand bowler wife the easiest of actions, that Butler was recalled.

E. Montague's vivid phrase " the factory hooter wakes the sitting grouse." Three huge factories dominate the field from the south side ; proud palaces oi the cotton industry no doubt ; but veritable nightmares to the poor outfielder who has to judge the height and velocity of big hits against their chequered surfaces. For the Walsden match on Saturday a match at first delayed and finally ruined by ram the crowd was small Dut vocai and, of course, highly partisan. It consisted chiefly of grave elders with kindly faces, keen eyes, and a profound knowledge of the game ; buxom women with outspoken views on the diabolical nature of all claims except those put forward by their own side ; ana a swarm oi resuess ooys an Dractising spin-bowling with as near an anDroach to the loose wrist and flexible bowling action of their idol, Ramadhin. as they could get. After a short delay Walsden won the toss and S. W. Hunt (formerly of Derbyshire), professional, and C. Potts went forth to do battle, fortified no doubt by the thought that whereas a wet ball is a handicap to all bowlers of whatever type it is doubly so to a bowler who spins em like Ramadhin. It was noticeable how steadily Ramadhin's attack improved in lengtn, variety, ana guue in proportion as the outfield dried up, which explains why Walsden's comfortable rate of scoring of 80 runs for the loss of two wickets in the first hour was pegged back to 46 runs for the loss of eight more wickets in the next. But at first cuts and pulls were there for the asking, and 38 runs had been rattled up with refreshing ease when a brilliant piece of fielding by Wright at square leg changed the whole course of the game. Potts, a believer in progress, had singled out a long-hop from Stafford and caught it a fourpenny one full on the bulge. But a boy with a shock of honey-coloured hair leaped forward and took a falling catch incredibly well. Miracles such as this have been known to unsteady batsmen before, and that is perhaps why Hunt left at the same total leg before wicket to Ramadhin, and. incidentally, Ramadhin's hundredth victim so far. By the time the Walsden captain, A. L. Moss, and K. Hentrev had come together to scotch Crompton's progress for a while, the one by swinging freely with a bat as heavy as Dick tTyldesley's famous "three-and-a-half pounder," the other by prodding patiently and letting his runs accumulate imnerceDtiblv. like Moss. Wright had been called up from square leg to give a sample of his bowling. As a boy who has just completed his two years' training with the forces he proved beyond all doubt that the Army authorities are making the best possible use of their cricketing material. Wright bowled twelve overs in all (including four maidens) for 18 runs and three wickets, and the outstanding feature of it ail was his firm control of length. At the other end Ramadhin for upwards of two hours devised and baited traps with rare skill, and might have had three further wickets to add to his six for 79 if some of his fieldsmen ever so stiff in the hams had been able to dart in more swiftly and snap up catches knee high. Crompton, alas, had only made nine runs for two wickets in answer to Walsden's 126 all out when rain fell heavily and washed out the promise of a highly diverting struggle. It would be difficult to say which element troubled Crompton's opening batsmen most the bad light or J. Coupe s plainly advertised inswingers or the stentorian appeals so ably led by Hunt Perhaps it was a combination of all three. In any case both N. Molyneux and P. Marner were back in the pavilion before a run had been scored : and Marner no doubt made a mental note that the hardest lesson a schoolboy batsman ever has to learn is how and when to leave a ball alone. Although his own common sense, quite apart from the placing of the field, told him that Coune dearly wanted him to hang out his bat to a ball swinging away to leg and so give a catch to the leg trap. That, in effect, is exactly what Marner did. He was drawn to it as helplessly as a bird fascinated by a snake. But that is how the Huttons and the Wash- brooks all began. Even the masters nave to learn. LEAGUE CRICKET RESULTS LANOARUVRR I.E RfTSE.. (Weekes 114 not out). Rlshton B; j.u. a IK., i nnnwn "J nut UU,-, f .w Accrtnitan 44 for 1.

To-day there remained only one more event to decide at the Olympic Games, the jumping contest for horses for the Prix des Nations. The Finns, those fine spectators who had been here the entire fortnight, finished strongly yesterday. Some people watched the cycling road race for five and a half hours, then saw in succession the swimming events, the football final, and the last half-hour of the boxing. But now we all feel we have had a surfeit of sport and that it will be a long time before we wish to hear the sound of a whistle or a bell or a starter's gun. The heat was intense yesterday morning when 112 cyclists assembled in their gaudy vests for the massed start, and it was hotter still when the last 6f the 53 competitors who completed the course arrived home. The Finns, in spite of their love of long-distance events, have only a mild enthusiasm for cycling, and the stands at the start and finish of the race had many vacant places.

EVANS IN FORM AT FALLOWFIELD There was some excellent racing and many fine individual performances at the Fallowfield games held on the Manchester A.C. ground on Saturday. The outstanding performance was the success of F. Evans (M.A. and C C.) in the Manchester mile, for, with this third successive victory, Evans made the trophy his own property. Although the opposition appeared weaker than in the last two years, Evans, running from scratch, was pressed over the final lap by B. Bull en (Winton Harriers) off 40 yards. Evans produced a new record for the event and an own personal best over the distance, of 4min. 13.1sec. This was an excellent achievement on a track almost water-logged and with a large field spread out. Another member of the British Olympic Games team who did well was F. Norris (Bolton United Harriers), wno won tne two miles almost as he pleased ; W. Hesketh. a former British six miles record holder, was a poor fourth. Morns hnisned as fresh as he started except for the mud. and appeared un- t roil Died Dy tne neavv corns. The mile relay was a big disappointment (or only three of the eieht teams which had entered ran. Thus the Manchester A.C A team, which included Evans and C.

Furuhashi's. world record in 1949 was 18min 19sec. The women's 400 metres was also an exciting event Valeria Gyenge. of Hungary, took the lead from Ragnhild Hveger-Andersen at 300 metres and held it to the last The challenge, came not from Miss Hveger-Andersen, who had' faded right away, but from another Hungarian, the sturdy, unstylish Eva Novak. E. T. Kavamoto, of the United States, who had broken the Olympic record by doing 5min. 16.6sec. in the heat swam 2sec. faster yesterday but .that earned her the third place. Miss Gyenge's time was Smin. 12.1sec.. Miss Novaks Smin. 13.7sec The British National Anthem was played in the stadium for the winner of the men's 200 metres breaststroke J. Davies. of Australia. He beat the American, B. D. Stassforth, by three-tenths of a second, and broke the Olympic record by nearly five seconds. The German, Klein, the holder of the worlds record for the distance he did it this year in 2min. 27.3sec., was only third in this race yesterday, so variable is swimming form. His time -was 2min. 35.9sec As was expected the three American girls won the high diving competition.' Patricia McCormick finished nearly eight points ahead. Phyllis Long, of Great Britain, who was sixth in the preliminary.- finished fifth in the final. Diana Spencer, the other British girl, was still seventh. The Hungarians, as had been expected, won the football final, beating the Yugoslavs 2-0. They are. sqme people believe, the second best team in the world, Brazil being their only superiors. There was no Cup-final atmosphere about this game, which almost tilled tne stadium. Both sides decided to nlay their own pretty version of football, which excludes the swinging pass and the bustling tackle and often even the first- tune kick at goal. As soon as one saw the two teams together it was obvious that the Hungarians were the cleverer. Their passing movements are no more charming than those of the Yugoslavs but are always more effective. With the latter one often feels, it is art for arts sake BRILLIANT SAVES The Hunearians were unfortunate, in the first half. Their shots just did nql come off or were brilliantly saved bj Beara, the rather fierce little Yugoslav goalkeeper (he missed his way ; he might have been a diving champion. too;, men rusicas, tne Hungarian inside-left. missed a nenaltv Beara again dived on the ball and Puskas hung his head in shame. At half-time there had been no score. The Hunearians started the second half with a series of raids. Hidegkuti sent in a screw shot which led to a corner, and Palotas, the centre forward, fumbled a low pass which he received just outside the goalmouth. A minute later, Mitic, the Yugoslav inside right, had an equally good chance but was too slow, and Stankovic. the right back, glowered. Now the Hungarians were on the attack again. Czibor on the left wing broke through but was just offside, Palotas retrieved his honour by a first-time kick from a dropping centre. But Beara saved brilliantly. Again the Yugoslavs looked as though they were about to succeed. Cajkovski, the comic turn of the side and a clever half-back, made an opening for Zebec on the left wing but his shot was just wide. Hungary's first goal came about 23 minutes from the end. Puskas dribbled round Beara . (who was stretched full length on the ground) and tapped the ball into the net Then, just before the whistle went, Beara was beaten again, this time by Czibor. It has been a delightful match to watch but it left one uneasy. Once football was a robust game for strong men. Played this way it is a ballet, highly skilful, highly decorative, but rather tame.

Gonzales (United States) a former United States champion, won the Slazenger professional tournament here to-day and is probably the best profes sional player in the world. The condi tions for the final in which he beat F. Segura (Equador) by 15-13. 6-3, 6-3, were not easy. A heavy rain made the centre court, though covered by a tar paulin, slippery and because of that the service power of Gonzales paid big dividends. There were in the long first set only three breaks of service. Once in the middle Gonzales broke through, but then pressed, and Segura, seeing his chance and playing well, recovered the loss. It was not until 13-all that Gonzales broke through again ana witn ine pressure mounting, held his own for the set, Aithnnoi Gonzales nlaved some lovely and delicate drop shots and drop volleys one stresses the service facts because they decided tne 10 return set-vice on such a court was a difficult business and nr knew- that only a double fault or two. a slight slackening of the concentration, or some lucjc couia auow lac outer useu w s.mmV Km.ah riMnraiM i th worms naest server, irut without such a formidable .weapon he aniiiii nwwmik two. an nro inarv niayer us his own company- Because oi inn oao mnimt MitVifui Wrm as amat.

The mutem. phuers seem-to rely on great strengtb wiUi which to hammer their opponents into SDhtniaAgiB. Other results were; the world to-day where East and West' could come together without misgiving. But it was not only politics that the Finns feared. The organising strain on a city of 400.000 people in a country of 4,000.000 has been enormous. - The foreign guests have been less numerous than expected because the Finns underestimated their ability to make them comfortable, because they were too late in "fixing a fairly generous rate for the Olympics mark, and because some people were scared by the troubles of five or six weeks ago when the Swedish aircraft were in trouble with the Russians. Nevertheless the disappointing attendance nut the organising task well within the capacity of the Finns. Nothing the Finns feared has happened. The countryfolk did not come to town and get drunk: it was more exciting to stay sober. The traffic has flowed smoothly and even the telecommunications system has worked exceedingly well. Perhaps sixty thousand foreigners have been here in the past fortnight. All of them are going home warm friends and admirers of this small country are so consistently good ? - ..... wa.'ii - a'vAm nnmm!M?i -r. 5 CAR TTRES ' Truck tjr ; in -y. ..; i1,.?
