[Departure of J. R. Stevens]
The departure of J. R. Stevens for Nelson means the loss of a stalwart to the Victoria College Cricket Club. Jack has been connected with the club for many years, rendering valuable service on both the administrative and playing sides. He captained the senior team for two years and was also club captain. For the past two years he has also served on the management commitiee of the Wellington Cricket Association. Last Christmas he was [unclear: anager] of the Wellington Plunket Shield team that played Canterbury in Christchurch. Jack was a capable all-rounder, being a sound captain, a good field, a very fair batsman, and a very useful stock bowler of medium pace.—L. B. S.
