Will New Zealand be Represented?

Will New Zealand be Represented?

There is a chance that field hockey at the Olympic Games will see New Zealand representation for the first time. To assist in securing funds for the sending of a team it is suggested that a small levy be made on each player in the Dominion. This step was adopted by amateur athletes in New Zealand many years ago and the shillings soon amount to pounds.

When the New Zealand cricketing authorities lost a considerable sum of money as the result of bad weather page 58 conditions during the tour of New Zealand by the English cricket team last summer, it was thought that the projected tour by an Indian team would more than recompense the Associations for the losses. However, State and private business have prevented the tour from being gone on with and a cricketing treat has been—temporarily, it is hoped—denied New Zealanders. But the visit of the English team to Australia in search of the “Ashes” will be of more than passing interest to New Zealanders because the Englishmen will tour these shores after completing their programme in Australia.
