- "I think a shilling is too much to pay for getting into a, football match, if it had been sixpence it would have been different" said George Madden, a 24-year-old bolt worker, residing at 5 Wylie Street, Hamilton, when he admitted at Hamilton Police Court yesterday, a charge of defrauding the Hamilton Academicals Football Club by climbing over a fence into Douglas Park on Saturday, thus gaining admission without intending to pay. The Fiscal said that the club had been very much troubled by this sort of thing, and they wished to put a stop to it. Bailie Sneddon, replying to Madden's remarks, said:—" I agree with what you say about the shilling being too much, but you had no right to go over the fence. If you cannot pay you should stay away." The accused—But I am a keen supporter, and want to see the games. Accused also stated that he was a married man with three of a family. He was admonished, on giving an undertaking that it would not happen again.
- A dramatic protestation of innocence by Herr Ernst Torgler, former leader of the German Parliamentary Communist party, was one of the outstanding features of the fourth day of the Reichstag fire trial at Leipzig yesterday. "For seven months," Herr Torgler declared, "I have been forced to be silent, and for five months I have been fettered night and day, but I kept up my spirit, not because I happen to be strong, but because I wished to take advantage of this public occasion to declare my complete innocence”.

A TYPICAL CELTIC-RANGERS MATCH
Celtic ......... 1 Rangers……….1
An attendance of 38,000 saw Celtic and Rangers meet in the semi-final of the Glasgow Cup.
The game was typical of many previous meetings of these clubs being more notable for keen play than an exhibition of the finer points of football.
Rangers had the advantage of a fairly stiff breeze in the first half, and their more experienced attack gave the Celtic defence considerable worry. On the other hand the home forwards, who were without Napier and McGrory, owing to these players being injured at Perth on Saturday, were sadly deficient in craft.
Just when the Celtic attack appeared to be developing a better understanding, Rangers became dangerous and instituted a number of likely thrusts. Success came their way eight minutes before the interval, but in a rather unorthodox manner, as from Main's long drooping shot Kennaway was bundled over the line by Smith just as he clutched the ball.
The second half saw a transformation, as Celtic, in four minutes, drew level, the ball being-taken through by F. O'Donnell from a throw-in to travel to Crum, who made no mistake in steering it past Dawson. Celtic were considerably heartened by this, and their forwards improved greatly on their first half display.
The draw was quite a fair result. Gray did splendid service for Rangers and Simpson was their best half-back. Forward, the Light-Blues had no passengers, but McPhail and Stevenson were outstanding.
The best part of the home side was the defence, Kennaway excelling in clever handling. The backs came through the ordeal well, and McStay played a heady game throughout, ably backed by Wilson and Hughes. The attack was as a line poor but there was any amount of individual cleverness.
