This record qualified C. Cobcroft to rep resent the schools of the Parramatta Dis trict at the University Oval, Sydney, for the P.S.A.A.A. Annual Championships. Here he won against all districts the (a) Age Championship (13 years old), (b) High Jump (senior), (c) Championship of the Primary School of N.S.W. for 1937. At Kurrajong Combined P. and C.

The' Hopkins Cup remains in the Wilberforce School now for the next twelve months. [We congratulate Charley Cobcroft on his splendid achievements, and hope they will be a forerunner of many future successes for this budding athlete. Good luck to him and his school. — Ed. 'G.'].
