Lancashire were not in a position In make the journey then, but the invita- ion was repeated for this season. Hence oday's match. Neither county has been able to call m quite its full side, and in particular it is a pity that R. A. W. Sharp was not ivailable for his admirers to watch him in direct opposition to Risman. one of the 'fading challengers for his position as England's stand-off half. On the other liand, both sides include men who have made their mark in football higher than rotmty level, and there seems no reason uhy today's game should not be as entertaining and as satlsfving as the one three seasons ago to which it owes its existence. rORNlVML.

FIRST WORLD CUP MATCHES Australia formidable By Harold Mather - The first shots in the third Rugbv League World Cup competition will ue iiieu luuay wnen ureal urnain meet New Zealand at Odsal Stadium, Bradford, and Australia, the holders, play France at Wigan. When the competition was ........ , .1 ; : , r irr , . Britain won' it after a play-off with the host country in Paris-a game which produced football of the highest class, fuTsrurp& ow"esoil 'lo, ?he ffilH for what could, and should, be a memorable three weeks of keen, exciting struggles. Attemotine to forecast the eventual I outcome of such an international evenL is a hazardous business at tne Dest or times. Attempting to do so for this competition is made the more difficult by the results of the most recent matches between the countries concerned. When Australia toured this country last season Great Britain won the rubber after losing the first of the three Test matches. In I Australasia earlier this year France drew the series with Australia, but then were somewhat surprisingly beaten in both I matches with .New Zealand. So, on such i evidence, it would appear that the two strongest competitors are Great Britain i and New Zealand. But are they ? i Forwards' task Certainly Great Britain should derive some advantage from playing before paper Britain s team loop strong enough, but in practice it m;i lhat the back division as a whole especially without Boston, will be found wanting "for sufficient speed and thrust. Even forward the six will have to be at their best, particularly on both attack and defence in the loose, for in no match are ' thoir rinnrwiipc liVpK' in lark" snpprf anil ; mobility. Fortunately, however, British ides usually are capable of rising to the occasion as against Australia in the second two Tests last season and there is no reason why this should not be so again. Australia, blessed with two such great centres as Gasnier and Wells, will not easily be overcome by anyone. Indeed, if they retain the trophy it will not be surprising, for overall they look the best equipped fore and aft.

(Vin i style events, received their medals from j H. Dixon, president of the Amateur Swimming Association at Blackpool last night. It would have been most remarkable if Miss N. Steward, winner of a bronze medal in the Olympic 100 metres freestyle in Rome, had not retained her furlong title. Although she was headed by Miss C Harris of Dunfermline after 110 yards she then moved away quickly and touched five yards ahead" of Miss E. C. Long, the junior champion, with Miss Harris fading into third nlace. Her excellent time of 2min 22.1sec was 1.9sec. better than the British record set up by N. Hae in May, and 2.4sec. inside the English record Miss Long had established in winning the junior title on Thursday. Everyone as surprised at the form shown by S. Clarke in the men's 220 vards freestyle. Previously he had never "done better than 2min. lU.osec. for the event. Last night his time of 2min. 7.Gsec. reduced the English record of N. J. McKechnie by three-fifths of a second. A very fast first 110 yards in 62.5sec. followed by a tij.lsec. second half is fine swimming indeed. Miss A. Lonsbrough, of Hudderslield, retained her national 220 yard breast-stroke title. She even made it an attractive race to watch by not trying to do a fast time but beine content merely to win. So there was the attractive spectacle of this beautiful swimmer pointing an arrow formation with two fifteen year olds, who one day may succeed her, in their rightful places, for the time being, at her feet. On one side was Scottish champion, A. Turnbull. from Galashiels, who has been on the fringe of British selection for two ?iVari ,n lu? . otblir S' "Uls' of llford. who has onlv been swimmint: seriously for a year. Miss Hills, a very determined young lady with a driving stroke, who swims an incredible 40 miles a week in training, appeared to have the advantage through- rout. ct the more relaxed Miss Turnbull somehow was always with her. While Miss Lonsbrough swept home in 2min. ;i. ist'C. well outside her British record, as expected these two closed to fight for second and third places. And it was the forceful Miss Hill who won the battle by one-tenth of a second in 2min. 59sec. lhe first time she has broken 3min. G. Symonds. the British Empire silver medallist, who was not chosen for the Olympic Games, was determined to regain the 22f) yards butterfly title he last won in 1955. And although he fiad the fastest heat time of 2min. 24.7sec, he will have to swim a better judged race in the final to be sure of success. After a very fast first two laps, he obviously was tiring as he took his last strokes into the finish. Swimming a much better fudged race was I. Blyth, ased 18, who edged him out of the team for Rome. Usually it is Blj-th who tears away and then fades, but yesterdav he was most restrained and should do hetter than his heat time of 2min. 25.5sec. in the final this afternoon.

On Rosewall faced by Segura and his hordes of admirers A sentimental occasion for Wembley BY DAVID GRAY The real surprise of the London anguish for the whole of tbc Empire indoor professional lawn tennis Pool to behave as though Harpo Marx championships at Wembley this had ,ist met Charlie Chaplin.

The five champions who stood in their way, Sedman, Trabert Hoacl, Cooper, and Olmedo. were all firmly eliminated. If to be a professional means to have the abilitv to do a job efficiently in any circumstances and whether you feel like it or not, then Rosewall and Segura are the two most professional players in the Kramer troupe. Since Rosewall entered the commercial side of the game, he has worked hard to strengthen his old weaknesses. The virtues are still there the wonderful touch, the delicacy in the volley, the swift grace of movement (when Rosewall turns and runs back to take a lob to the baseline, he invariably - - """r"w. "V- trround strokes hut now hp has improved his serving and his smashing. Rosewall works for his points. Methodically he drives an opponent out of position and, when the moment comes that the enemy is out-rallied and unprotected, he makes his winning thrust with absolute safety. He gives nothing whatever away. Poor Olmedo, whom nobody could touch at Wimbledon last year, was beaten 6-0, 6-0, 6-3, in the semifinals. He hit the ball quite often, but he was always in retreat, always defending. Rosewall, his face cold with concentration and determination, controlled him as a puppet master controls a puppet. In all the rallies he pulled the strings. Rosewall is admired, but Segura, with his elliptical legs that he can walk at all is a geometrical phenome- non his small mane of black hair, his flashing smile, and his occasional moments of buffoonery, is the darling of the crowd. Wembley is a less sophisticated arena than Wimbledon, Extroverts are welcomed. Segura has only to shriek at himself in Spanish Fire theory 'impossible" STORE INQUEST An electrical expert who gave evidence yesterday at the inquest in Liverpool into the deaths of 11 people in the fire at Henderson's store said it was impossible that the fire started in the way that an electrical inspector of factories maintains it did. Conflicting theories about the outbreak have been put forward at previous hearings. The inspector, Mr s awu ue 15 saubneu that the fire started from a fault in a cable. Mr L. C. Grant, a consultinE engineer, whose firm supervised the installation of electrical equipment at the store, says that arcing in the cable took place after the fire had broken out. In further evidence yesterdav Mr urant ajjain argued this view and said he thought that tests made bv Mr Picken were unfair and look no account of conditions in the store. At one point he agreed that he and Mr Picken had held j differing opinions on various matters the past. Evidence was given later bv Dr John Leonard Miller, of Blundellsands, who said he had specialised knowledge of electric cables and had examined the damage to the cable in the store. In his opinion it was caused b'v external fire, lie could not accept the' tests carried out by. Mr Picken. and would have suecestrd more experiments. The Coroner : What you are saving is that the way in which Mr Picke'n said the fire started is a sheer impossibility? I agree one hundred per cent. The inquest was adjourned until Monday.

A decision on the Suestion probably will be taken when the nion's organising committee meets early next month. Leigh and St Helens, who could not agree on the date for their Lancashire Rugby League Cup semifinal tie, were ordered by the county committee at Manchester last night to play on October 17 at Leigh, and replay on October. 19 in the event of a draw.

Part of the reason is that ne tarries the crowd with him. Anyone who meets him under the hShts ancl ln tfle cigarette smoke does not Just Pla' one man with a racket but 5.000 supporters as well. It is no wonder that he wins matches. Towards the end of his three-hour semifinal with Sedgman he showed slsns of tiring. He missed chances that might nave given him an earlier victory, yet he still was able to make tne final effort that gave him a break n the ninth game of the fifth set and. the match at 4-6. 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. On bedgman, who used to swift, beautifully simple TimTc hS7 t wZJt iW he will be 33. The last time that Rosewall and Segura met in the final Rosewall won in the fifth set after Segura, troubled by cramp in the hand, had lost what seemed to be a winning lead. Rosewall is the favourite tonight he has won his last four tournaments but- it is rumoured that this will be Segura's last Wembley. Who knows what so much courage and energy, supported by so many friends, may not be able to achieve ? Certainly it will be a senti- mental occasion, and everyone will remember what happened to Rosewall when he came up against Drobny and sentiment in a final at Wimbledon, In the play-off for the third place in the singles tournament last night, Sedgman beat Olmedo 4-6, 6-2, 6-2. It was a dull match and Sedgman's greater skill in placing his volleys was the deciding factor. For the Australian this was only medium-paced hitting, but it was enough to knock the spirit and enthusiasm out of Olmedo. In a match for fifth place Cooper beat Gimeno 6-3, 2-6, 6-4. DIRTY AIR TEST ON ANIMALS Bronchitis research From our own Reporter Scarborough, Friday. Dr P. J. Lawther, director of the Air Pollution Research Unit of the Medical Research Council, told public health inspectors at their conference here today that research workers were trying to produce chronic bronchitis in small animals by exposing them to heavily polluted air. Chronic bronchitis, which kills 30,000 people a year in Britain, was commoner in towns than in the country, said Dr Lawther, and it was therefore reasonable to suspect that air pollution was concerned in its development. Yet there was still no complete definition of chronic bronchitis which satisfied all clinicians and all research purposes because the disease evolved over so many years and went through so many stages. Research workers were trying to produce this cycle of bronchitic changes in their small animals. " Air pollution is only one of several unpleasant features of urban life which merit consideration as causes of the excess bronchitis found in towns," said Dr Lawther. "Industry, overcrowding, poor diet, frequent infections all may play a part. But recent researches on standardised population incriminate air pollution as one of the most serious factors. Cigarette smoking appears to be of roughly equal importance." Dr Lawther said that on present evidence it seemed probable that air pollution caused a small proportion of lung cancer in Britain. The Clean Air Act, while still leaving some pollutants unchecked, would by reducing smoke also reduce the carcinogenic content of the air. Describing air pollution as " Britain's sordid folly," he added : " Our concern with specific mortal illness must not lead us to neglect the condemnation of air pollution for its simple filth. We have lived with it so long that we accept it as a normal part of urban life the shameful soiling of clothes and furnishings, the obscuration of sunlight, the stunting of vegetation, the rotting of buildings. Who can begin to assess the mental and physical illness caused by the struggle to cope with this despoliation and decay ?" The world now writes to Pontardawe, a rural district near Swansea, when it wants to know how people look when they have been poisoned by endrin pesticide. (They look as though they are having an epileptic fit.) Mr I. Lewis, the district's chief public health inspector, told the conference how Pontardawe became the fount of such obscure knowledge in 1956. Sacks of flour had been carried in a railway truck into which endrin had been spilled two months earlier. Bread made from the flour poisoned 58 people in Pontardawe " 58 unconscious guinea- pigs irom wnose symptoms 3d countries have since learned more about endrin poisoning." Mr Lewis was opening a discussion on the safe use of pesticides in agriculture. Like other speakers, he was chiefly concerned about the possibility of people's being poisoned by chemicals used for spraying crops. These sub stances, he contended, shotdd be treated on the basis of absolute safetv. They should be regarded as guilty until proved innocent. Mr R. F. Giles, a Ministry of Agriculture specialist on pesticides, said there was no evidence of people's being harmed by the chemicals. Before a chemical was cleared for use they required all the facts on its long-term effect on animals. WOMAN KILLED IN CAR-LORRY CRASH A mother of six children, Mrs Annie Kaye, aged 43, was killed and her husband, Robert, aged 44, a company director, was badly injured when their car was wrecked in a crash earlv yesterday on the York-Leeds road, near the Leeds city boundary. The car, driven by Mr 'Kaye, tut flood water in a dip in the road, and collided with an articulated lorry. The accident happened a mile from their home, Whinmoor, Leeds. In hospital last night, Mr Kaye was said to be "quite comfortable." The lorry driver was not hurt.
