SYDNEY WETTÈR THAN MELBOURNE: BURBERRY KEEPS THEM BOTH DRY -.-. * By the David Jones' Roundsman. Small talk about the weather is probably the most dreary, most hack- neyed, and most boring form of conversation there* is and yet, none of us can gel on -without it. How else could wc fill in the silence between floors irr lifts, greet the baker or ingratiate ourselves with the boss on arriving at work -!. late? And how else can we introduce here the topic of raincoats if we dort't begin with something about the weather? First we'd like to tell you if you' don't already know - that Sydney is the wettest capi- tal in Australia, so those time worn cracks about Melbourne's climate literally don't hold much water since Melbourne's average rainfall is only. 25 inches yearly, compared with Sydney's 46 inches. Secondly,-we think you ought to know that for the last two years Sydney has had rain every month. NEED FOR BEST Thirdly, we'd like to say that with that information in hand, you should r...

"AUSTRALIA FAIR" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
"AUSTRALIA FAIR" "ADVANCE Australia Fair," -¿*our unofficial national an- them, was composed in a bus. Here is the composer's own story. '"One night I attended a big con- cert in the Sydney Exhibition Building, where all the national anthems of the world were sung. I felt angry that there was no Australian anthem, and coming i home on top of one of the old horse-drawn buses I composed my song. I wrote it down immedi- ately I got home, and nothing of it was afterwards altered." [ "Advance Australia Fair" was i composed by the late Mr. P. D. McCormick. -BILL BEATTY

MODEL AIRCRAFT MAKE AND FLY THIS "PLAYTIME" GLIDER By JIM FULLARTON "T"H1S little glider is simple to -*? make, and a fine perfor- mer. With it, you can learn all the basic principles of model flying, and have a lot of fun. The materials you will need are a panel -of 1 / 16in thick balsa (medium), a panel of l/8in balsa (hard), and some model aero cement. ^ Mark out the shapes of the . wing, tailplane and fin on the l/16in panel, and cut out with a razor blade. Use a penny to guide the blade on rounded corners. Then using the I/8in balsa, cut the fuselage accurately. Now, smooth all pieces and round off sharp corners with sand- paper. Cement the fin and tailplane to the rear of the fuselage, as shown, holding with pins until dry. The wing is not flat, but has to be bent up at a "Dihedral" angle in the centre. To achieve this effect, crush it straight across the centre with a blunt knife and then crack it. Give the cracked part a coat of cement and leave it to dry with one tip blocke...

Singapore Men Dig For A.I.F. "Treasure" SINGAPORE, Feb. 12 (A.A.P. Reuter).-Municipal workers dug a 20-feet hole at a busy intersec- tion in the heart of Singapore to day, because a Chinese believes that Australian soldiers buried gold there. .Armed police stood by, and a big crowd gathered, but the work- ers failed to locate the treasure. A_ Chinese engineer, Leong Woôn, said to-day that while OIJ air-raid duties at the height of the battle for Singapore he and three friends saw Austialian sol- diers burying a very heavy trunk. "The Australians gave us a case of beer and told us to go away," he said. Last December experts with mine-detectors told Leong that there was gold in the vicinity. He and his friends paid the municipal authorities 3,500 Straits dollars (£A500) for dig- ging the hole to-day. Now they want another "hole dug in the vicinity.

Washington Scouts Reports Of U.S. Withdrawal From Occupation Of Japan From Our Staff Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Washington Scouts Reports Of U.S. Withdrawal From Occupation Of Japan From Our Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON Feb. 12.-Government officials said to-day that America had no intention of immediately with- drawing her. occupation forces and abandoning: Japan. They said that since the war American foreign policy had been to regard Europe7 rather .than Asia as Ame- rica's "threatened - frontier" arid there had been no . change in that policy. It is understood that General MacArthur, after the Communist successes in China, . advised strengthening American defences in the Pacific. Some American defence chiefs oppose this, maintaining that Russia is no threat in the Pacific. This conflict of U.S. defence views, it is believed, has led to the reports that America was consid- ering withdrawing from Japan. (Correspondents in Tokyo yes- terday ' quoted an authoritative American source as having said: (lj The United States was reconciled to the loss of Japan in the event of war; (2) Some top mi...

Austrians Had To Play Double Game [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
lAustrians Had To Play Double Game From SEBASTIAN HAFFNER IN LONDON AUSTRIAN diplomats have to play a double game in the next few weeks to try to help the Big Four Powers reach agreement on the peace treaty. The Austrians have to convince the Russians that an independent Austria would still be an easy prey to Communism. Then they have to convince Britain, the United States, and France that an independent Aus- tria would still be a safe bulwark for the West against Communism. Otherwise Austria will not get a peace treaty and will not get the Occupation Forces off her territory. Convincing both sides of these opposite facts is no easy task, but it is perhaps not beyond the diplo- matic skill of a nation which in the last few years has rediscovered not a little of its old political wis- dom and subtlety. . .' * THE Big Four Powers resumed their talks on the Austrian peace treaty in London last week. Diplomatically the differences between the four ex-Allies which have so far prevented a...

Favourite's Failure Puzzles Stable PLÜNGE ON CARUSO GOES AMISS Ran Last In Field Of Six By JOHN SCHOFIELD Caruso's dismal failure in the Glenfield Handicap at Randwick yesterday mystified his rider Jack Thompson and owner. Mr. A. O. Romano. Mr. Romano said after the race that on track work Caruso had appeared a "good thing", but he finished last. "I had £2,000 to £800 on him myself, hut, worse than that, I had told all my friends to back him," Mr. Romano said. The usually imperturbable Thompson was demonstra- tive as he discussed Caruso's form with Mr. Romano and trainer H. Plant. He told them that Caruso had refused to stretch out at any part of the race. Lazy In Stall "He wanted to lie down in the starting boxes," Thompson said. "It was with difficulty that 1 brought him up to the barrier at all. "When he did jump away he - raced only half-heartedly, and near the three furlongs tried to drop out altogether. "Then 1 shook him up, and for a short distance he galloped, but after turn...
