Social History

BOWLER WAS CAUGHT!
Sequel to Street Cricket.
Usually it is the batsman who is caught, but in a case at the North Melbourne Court today it was the bowler.
Robert White, 17 of Carroll Street, North Melbourne, was charged with having projected a missile within 50ft. of electric light wires.
The charge was dismissed.
Evidence was given that White and about 15 other youths were playing cricket in Molcsworth Street, North Melbourne, at 11.50 a.m. on January 10.
White was the bowler. The batsman and fieldsmen escaped when a constable arrived.
For the defense it was contended that White was bowling at medium pace, and that he did not endanger the wires.
Mr Wade, P.M., upheld the point, and dismissed the charge.
