THE TROUSERS DID NOT FIT. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
THE TROUSERS DID NOT FIT. Freddie Randle was requisitioned as a referee for the Glebe-Balmain v. Cambridge match last Satuiday at the last moment, and consequently had to borrow his uniform. He happened to secure tiis trousers from one of the biggest men on the ground, and ais appearance pro testing about the fit caused much laughter. The sight of Randle holding the garment up brought the mind to prisoners of war with their trousers buttons severed. Dr. G. H. McElhone has been suffering from a rather severe attack of influenza, and is a consequence has had to stand down from refereeinj games. However, he is now on his way to recovery, and will be available again shortly. The boys of the A.S.C. have entered into the spirit of the game in fine style, and are most popular with the rest of the teams. Last week end the geme seemed likely to get out of the grip in which they appeared to have it early, but the fact that their opponents had secured a lead by 6 to 3 only made them play more ...
PROSPECTS AT ROSEHILL GOOD FIELDS ARE PROBABLE, BUT NO DIVISIONS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
PROSPE.CTS AT ROSEHILL ? v~ ? GOOD FIELDS ARE PROBABLE, BUT NO DIVISIONS By CARDIGAN. Rosehill will be the attraction this afternoon, and even with pony opposition the crowd is likely to be large, as engaged in the races arc a number of horses with Spring engage ments. The chances arc, however, divisions will not be necessary, although in most cases the fields promise to be above the average. Gadabout, if himself, would take a deal of beating this afternoon in the Rosehill Handicap, even with his 9.5, and althoush he may :iot be quite ready, he is fairly forward, and if he runs may run a fair race. Galtcc Queen has won at her last two starts, and despite a 101b rise will be hard to beat again this afternoon. Silent Way is a good New Zealand performer, and is rather a nice horse to look at, but per haps he would be all the better for a race, al though he went fairly well on Thursday over a mile. Taunter has done nothing of much account I recently, but looks well enough, and is lii;i:...

NAVAL COLLEGE WANTS FIXTURES. *VW *wyai nusirauan r-avai uouege at ?j15., ay,J? anxious to arrange some fixtures, and Mr. Hill will be plea6cd to hear from teams who may be able to make the trip. Al ready games with Newington College. North Shore Grammar School, Kings School and Sydney Grammar School have been fixed, but others arc wanted. Ex-Newingtonians were very prominent ln at least one game on Saturday — that between University ana Newtown. Laws, the 'Varsity forward, who was always in the game, was most noticeable with the Blue and Golds, while besides the older members of the team, Hull and Macdonald in the backs of the Newts showed that they will greatly strengthen that division. The former played half-back for the first time, and shaped most promisingly, except that he ran too much from the scrum. Mac donald is very sturdy, and should go a Ions way in first-class company. Another promising boy that the Blues have discovered is Little, the Fort-street School for ward, who h...

AT KENSINGTON TO-DAY PROBABILITIES & SELECTIONS FOR THE PONY MEETING By THE SCOUT. ' Kensington will be the scene of action of the followers of pony and galloway racing this afternoon, and a start will be made at U0 p.m. Trams will run to and from the race- j course gates at frequent intervals, and a good programme is to be presented. A start will be made with the first division of the Maiden Handicap, for which a fair num ber of those engaged appear to have good prospects, including Haughty Ena, Parsing. Persian Cup and Evelyn Rouvray. If Crcolin strikes the second division, she should meet with good support, and others with good chances may include Miss Brew, Malt Dove. Schnoor, and The Gamester. Next comes the first division of the Flying Handicap, for which Dormer heads the list with 9.1U, but may not be yet quite ready. Steel On (8.12) should run well on this course, and so should Selbrook 8.0, My Best 7.12. C-ihbcrpu^vah 7.12. and Balios 7.7. Harbour and Holdcna appear...
THE SECOND GENERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
THE SECOND GENERATION. The try by Braddon for University last Saturday will bring back to many the deeds of other days, when the lad's lather, H. Y. Braddon, now president of the Kugby Union played in the tnrce-quartcr line, and did yeo man service as a tacitler and general defender, besides holding his own in attacking work. Mr. Braddon still keeps fit with tennis, etc., end one hopes thai the modest beginning of Braddon junior may result ultimately in an emulation ot the form that gained Braddon senior borti hia New Zealand and New South Wales representative caps.

'PerisoppfcPvw By CISEAUX. To see women driving motor cars in place of the able-bodied, who have become warriors, is repugnant to some old-fashioned minds. But it is nothing new; mtny leading ladies of the operatic stage having often appeared as Car men.

HUMOR IN THE TRENCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
HUMOR IN 'THE TRENCHES. Somewhere in France, many thousands of British soldiers from far-flung Dominions are, between siege and onslaught and fusillade o! shot and shell, making themselves as comfort able and as happy about it all as is possible under the circumstances. They have concerts, vaudeville performances of their own making, and, now and then, with the aid of the co quettes of the countryside, a dance. Also, they publish th;ir own comic papers, jammed to the type-brim with personal quip. One of these papers is a six-pnge affair. pruiicu iirtyuazaru lasnion, anu Roing Dy tne name of Honk I That the publication's title is of itself a word of warning should be suffi cient. However, as indicating the attitude of mind toward an abnormal condition, the paper is assuredly of deep interest. 'Always remember,' the editor states, by way of tossing off some epigrammatic advice, 'that things arc never half so bad as they would be if they were more than twice as bad as they are. So chee...

Tween Drinks [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
ibeenQDrinfo By JOHN DRAYTON. An enquirer wants to know if Byrnes wrote a Foem called Tamoschanto ? Which Byrnes ? It was the late H. F. Smith who first said : 'I'm neutral; I don't care a damson who licks Germany.' 'Crossed the Great Divide,' says the news paper. 'Gone West' says the man In the fight ing line. Mean the same. 'Peace Riots In Berlin.' Looks as if the Bochcs are out to end the war — if they have to eet up a revolution to get peace. Attention to detail is admirable. A paper informs us that Pte. ? , who was sick, is re covered, and has returned back to the front. When are we going to get a Board of In vestigation into the cost of living, which will reduce the price of something ? One of the leading' specialists says the vices of his clients keep them virtuous. Fact, too, when you come to think o! it. The Kaiser carries a book of prayers in his breast pocket.

W.J. MANNING AND DISTRESSED JOCKEYS' FUND [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
W.J. MANNING AND DISTRESSED JOCKEYS' FUND , It has been stated in the Press that the joc key W. J. Manning, who fractured a thigh in a fall at Kensington some time back, has been refused assistance by the A.J.C. Committee. A statement to this effect appeared in The Re feree on Wednesday. We are officially informed that no formal application has been made by Manning to the committee of the A.J.C. for assistance from the Distressed Jockeys' Fund. Had an appli cation been made it would have been placed before the committee, and whether in the cir cumstances Manning was entitled to relief from the Fund would have received due con sideration. The A.J.C. has ever shown itself to be liberal in the donations from the Dis tressed Jockeys' Fund in the case of accidents, a very notable case occurring a little while back. ._

THE MOTOR IN WAR [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
THE MOTOR IN WAT? A year ago great things were expected of the armored motor car in war, and it certainly made a good record for a while; but as soon as both armies dug themselves in its usefulness was discounted. Where armies a.fo engaged in rapid movements, not mere sorties from trenches, the armored car is of great value, but for some time it has been little used in France. On the other hand, the ammunition and, supply cars that go up to the front are now frequently nrmored. with nHv.nnt.i t»*» nitiim-rrU +u _;?.-„.. __„ of ofTcncc, or perhaps defence, is limited to the rifles of their guards.

HOW TO SPEAK FRENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
HOW TO SPEAK FRENCH. Honk, a little paper of the British forces Jn Fracce, is full of quips and jests. Among other humorous matters it explains its simple method of making the Frenchman understand : 'In view of the difficulties encountered by many members of the Expeditionary Force in making themselves understood in French, Honk has decided to establish a class for the teaching ot a system of his own, by which everybody, can easily make himself understood.

SIMPLE RULES BOTHER PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 22 July 1916
SIMPLE RULES BOTHER PLAYERS. -''?r'k ''»»bo «iicii uuuicr me Dcst oi play ers. An appeal was made last Saturday against a player, who was placing the bal] for a place kick, lying in front of the ball while so placing it The rule on the question should be known to all players, and provides that in such cases all the Kicker's side except the placer must be behind the ball. Thus Uie pUcer can lie where it suits him best. Jack Huie, the swimmer-footballer is de yeloping as a punt, and some of his linefind ing kicks for Manly last week were excellent Although new to grade games, he has filled the bill in most promising style. Up to date North Sydney have only one defeat recorded against it, and that in the opening bout of the year. Glebe-Balmain nave had a loss and a drawn game to spoil its record, University has had two defeats and a draw, while Y.M.C.A. has suffered 1 three defeats.

DR. MORAN REAPPEARS. Dr H. M. Moran will referee the Y.M.C.A Field Artillery came at the Grammar School ground this afternoon. It is pleasing to know that the popular medico U still keen on the game, and one hopes that some of his contem poraries will be able to follow 1i:s example, and give a little time to controlling contests under the M.R.U.

GOAL-KICKING WINS HALF THE MATCHES. T'le value of goal-kickin; as a matchwin ning factor has this year been vividly demon ??.t-atcd by the North Sydney-Mosman com bination. Out of the r.ix wins, three have I been gained by superior G°='-kicking, in which ? reals have beaten tries. Y.M.C.A. on two occasions have been the victims, while Army fcrvice Corps also scored more tries than Norths, but succumbed. ' The Y.M.'s had one notable win against Uni versity, where they only scored one try against three, yet ended winners. On two other occasions field goals have supplied the margins in their favor, although the try-scoring totals were at least as good as the opposition.
