REGARDED as the greatest Cricket Carnival ever to be held in North Queensland, this was certainly a grand week-end of cricket, Fourteen teams competed from the following towns :

Ayr (two teams), Hughenden, Ingham (two teams), Townsville, Homestead, Cairns (three), Home Hill, Pentland, Ravenswood and Charters Towers. All cricketers enjoyed themselves and practically every team stated that they would be back again next year if a similar carnival were conducted.
The trophy for the Carnival was a beautiful silver urn donated by the Licensed Victuallers' Association and has been called the North Queensland "Ashes." The standard of cricket was excellent and a fine competitive and sportsman ship spirit existed right throughout the whole week~end.
Credit for the wonderful results achieved go mainly to Mr. Ian Mann, Secretary, and the President, Mr. J. Meeson. The Carnival was won by the Cairns team with Ingham as runners-up.
