- The two goalkeepers, Joe Kennaway and William Kenny, kept clean-sheets with the home keeper said to be the busier of the two.
- Three games in the First Division of the Scottish League were played in Glasgow, yesterday (Monday). Motherwell won narrowly against Partick Thistle, and are now only three points behind Rangers, each side having four more matches to play.
- Judgment for £4,200 of damages with costs was entered by Mr Justice Branson in the King's Bench Division, London, for Miss Emilia Torsini, a young London waitress, who was plaintiff in an action against Primo Carnera, the Italian boxer, for breach of promise of marriage. During the hearing of the case extracts from letters which passed between plaintiff and Camera were read. Mr Monckton, K.C., for the plaintiff, said the Court would see that there was admission by Carnera of the promises.
- It is considered extremely unlikely that the boycott of Jews in Germany will be resumed tomorrow. While there was a return to normal yesterday, so far as the business activities of the Jews were concerned, steps are being taken to prevent them escaping from the country. Arrests of highly placed persons continue to be made.

McGRORY HELD BY WALKER
Four thousand spectators witnessed a poor game at Celtic Park yesterday afternoon, the high-wind spoiling any chance of good football.
Celtic, with the wind in their favour, had most of the play in the first half but did not appear to be unduly exerting themselves. McGrory was well held by Walker, and had few shots at goal, most of the danger coming from the Thomsons on the right.
St Mirren were not entirely on the defence during this period, McCrae leading several raids in which he had able assistance from Phillips at outside-left, but the home defence was sound.
The second half was much more interesting. St Mirren evidently had made up their minds to shoot on every occasion, and in consequence Kennaway had a busier time than Kenny had experienced when facing the wind.
The nearest approach to a St Mirren goal was when Knox sent the ball goalwards with an overhead kick. The wind caught the ball and took it away from Kennaway, who, however, was able to get his outstretched hand to it and divert it.
Towards the finish Celtic made some desperate efforts to get ahead, and McGrory all but succeeded, only the watchfulness of Walker and on one occasion the speed of Ancill thwarting the international centre-forward.
On the whole, a draw was the proper result, for if Celtic were the more finished side their opponents were just as dangerous.
