|Match Pictures | Matches: 1929 - 1930 | 1930 Pictures|
- The Tuesday meeting of Celtic and Hamilton was the only league game played, and certainly the only game played this year where both sides have three players with a common surname. Jimmy McGrory scored twice in 72 and 74 minutes but missed a penalty after this depriving him of a hat-tick. Charlie Napier scored Celtic's first goal in 43 minutes.
- At Scottish Questions in the House of Commons, Frederick Alexander Macquisten, K.C., Scottish Conservative and Unionist MP for Argyllshire opposed the raising of the school-leaving age to 15. He asked the Secretary of State—“Does the hon. gentleman not realise the right of parents to protest against the conscription of their children in a foolish extension of a very inferior type of education, when they would be much better educated in the open country of Argyll?” No reply was given.
- A scheme promoted by Glasgow Corporation costing £ 590,719. for the demolition of a large number of slum dwellings in the Calton area of Glasgow, and the erection of modern dwellings for the dispossessed, was the subject of a public inquiry which opened in the Burgh Court Hall, Glasgow, yesterday. The scheme would involve the displacement and rehousing of about 50,000 persons, and 13,000 or 14,000 houses. STRIKING FIGURES. Dealing with the need of the scheme from the point of view of public health, Mr George Montgomery, advocate for the Department of Health, mentioned that the general death-rate for the area of which the scheme formed a part was approximately 22.5 per 1,000 of the population, as compared with 17.8 for Calton Ward and 13.8 for the city itself. The death-rate from pulmonary tuberculosis was 1.69 for the area, as compared with 1.14 for Calton and 0.84 for the city. As for infant mortality, the rate per 1,000 births was 141 for the area, as compared with 128 for the ward and 106 for the city. Certain of the sub-areas showed even higher figures. He thought they would agree that those were very striking figures and formed justification for proceeding with the scheme.

SCOTTISH LEAGUE—DIV. 1
CELTIC, 3; HAMILTON ACADEMICALS, 0.
At Celtic Park, Glasgow, yesterday, before 2000 spectators, Celtic had most of the play during the first half, but they did not open their account until a couple of minutes from the interval, when Napier shot a fast ball past Gilmour after the goalkeeper had saved from McGrory.
Hamilton's visits to Thomson were mainly achieved through spasmodic raids.
In the twenty-seventh and twenty-ninth minutes of the second half McGrory added a couple of goals, but his effort to score with a penalty-kick was frustrated by Gilmour, who did well for the visitors.
Allan, J. Wilson, and Watson defended well, and F. Wilson was Hamilton's most dangerous forward.
John Thomson was never tested in Celtic's goal, and his backs had an easy game. The home halves and forwards played fine football, and delighted the small attendance with their work.
