Chosen

I HAD not heard of Frank Hill, the Aberdeen, Arsenal and Scotland footballer, for a long time.
Frank, however, is still playing great football. I see he has been chosen to play for the R.A.F. against Western Command at Chester on January 22.
Before the war, be was on the training staff of Preston North End. He holds the rank of flying officer in the R.A.F.
