THE CRICKET SEASON.

TO THE EDITOR, Sir,—The Committee of the O.R.F.U. have decided to have a series of matches on the 28th. This means a considerable delay in preparing the ground for cricket. Is it not rather selfish on the part of the Union to thus deprive the sister sport—cricket—of a good start ? The football season is gradually commencing earlier and finishing later year by year, and this comes to be at the cost of cricket.

I am quite aware the Union do not gain financially by tho proposed matches—that it is a matter of charity ; but " charity should begin at home," and I know of nothing mora entitled to kindly help than cricket.

Considering the splendid football season we have enjoyed, I think the flourishing O.R.F.U. can afford to be generous. Will they therefore kindly forego the proposed matches in the interests of cricket ? It is hardly necessary to point out that oqr best footballers are also our best cricketers. I am, etc., Sport.
