Grasshoppers Out Of Control [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Grasshoppers Out Of Control Grasshoppers infesting wheat grow- ing and grazing areas in mid-western New South Wales are taking to the wing and farmers say they now have no chance of controlling them. Residents say that only a Govern- ment-conducted offensive can prevent the grasshopper plague from becoming one of the worst in their memories. Already many wheat crops have been destroyed and grazing land stripped of grass and foliage. The grasshopper hordes at Coonamble have forced the evacuation of thousands of head of cattle and sheep to the south. Farmers short of cattle feed have sent six train loads of stock across the border into Victoria. Although conditions are drought-like in the worst af- fected area - between Coon- amble, Gulargambone and Coonabarabran - residents are hoping no rain will fall. They say rain would only grow more feed for the grasshoppers and cause their numbers to multiply. Food is so scarce in some sections that the pests are eating each other. Mr. Neil Lam...

Blood is soilt over Jorda n FACT'S London News Bureau [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Blood is sollt over Jorda n FACT'S London News Bureau LIKE mourners motionless around a grave, the little square-built houses stood on Kibia's hills around a pile of rubble. Forty- two other houses had stood there until raiders from Israel came in the night" and dynamited them. It took a week to dig out the last of the bodies of 66 Arab men, women . and children. It was, Jordan Arabs said bitterly, wholesale slaughter in the Nazi massacre manner. Israel's first explanation was that it was a spontaneous attack by villagers on the Israel side of the armistice border-in re- taliation for raids by Arab mar- auders from Jordan. This version of the attack was contradicted by a majority re- port of the United Nations' mix- ed Armistice Commission from the spot. Commission observers said 600 troops made the raid after pre- paratory artillery fire. Artillery shells two villages THESE troops used mortars, Sten guns and hand gren- ades in addition to dynamite, the commission found. They had mi...

Aircraft Price Doubled STAFF CORRESPONDENT NEW YORK, Sat- urday.-An American investors' magazine says that Australian National Airways has paid more than twice the original cost for two second-hand DC6 airliners.

Life In Woomera Racket Village Cames Down To The Pram [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Life In Woomera Rocket Village Comes Down To The Pram THE small, forbidding square of Australian desert called Woomera should be fit for only a penal settlement by normal civilised standards, according to the Special Correspondent who wrote this article. There is no spiked wall round it, but the parched red clay stretching for hundreds of miles on all sides offers no reason for escape from the compound. Yet more than 400 women from British and Australian towns have set- tled in this artificial oasis with every outward sign of enjoying it. They are the wives of the scientists and other men working on the rocket ranges nearby. LONG JOB The more I saw of the desolate ranges during a tour of them to-day the more I was convinced that the success of the whole £60,000,000 defence project depends on these wives. Given time the scientists and technicians will ultim- ately solve the problems of intercepting enemy bombers with guided anti-aircraft rockets. But it will be such a long job that f...

Sadness In Australian Picture Of The Month [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Sadness In Australian Picture Of The Month 1 Australian artists are mostly clever but not creative, said Syd- ney art tutor, Mr. Desiderius Orban yesterday. Mr. Orban's oil painting ' "At Mittagong" has been selected by the Immigra- tion Department in its painting-of-the-month ser- ies for New Australians. The painting, which will hang for a month in the ves- tibule of the Immigration Department's offices in York Street, has provoked much public comment, according to officials of the department. Mr. Orban, a Hungarian who has become a natural- ised Australian, has been in Australia 15 years, but says he is still a "New Austra- lian." Yesterday he answered critics who had seen a gloomy reflection of the Aus- tralian scene in the dark trees and sombre sky that shroud the eerie old house at Mittagong. "Can't Help It" "If- it makes Mittagong gloomy I can't help it," said Mr. Orban«. "In art, nature should be only an excuse to present something that comes from within the painter. "And wh...

Unmasking of Mr. X Smuggling plot FACT'S London News Bureau [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Unmasking of Mr. X Smuggling plot FACT'S London News Bureau :\y'i'! For weeks British security officers, disguised as seafaring men, haunted the quaysides at Antwerp and Rotterdam, watching cargoes from West Germany. Suddenly, they acted, ripping open eight crates and got local police to seize them. It exposed a plot that had allowed enough ball-bear- ings and roller-bearings to equip six squadrons of tanks to reach Russian-dominated Poland and Hungary. The trail led back to Bul- garian Ivan Jouhoff, a Red trade spy in Frankfurt, Ger- many. To get an export licence, Jouhoff persuaded Jan Karel Stach, 35, a Czech refugee in England, to pretend he was importing bearings from Germany. The bearings left Ger- many marked "Destination Britain," but at the Belgian and Dutch ports another Red agent switched the labels and sent them to Poland and Hungary. The richest M.P. The plot was unfolded in the Old Bailey last week when Draybex Ltd., an Eng- lish firm, and Jan Stach, one of its directo...

This I did some weeks ago, and included a list of foods which were strongly advisable. When she came this morn- ing, she said she hoped I wouldn't think her dull, but she was uncertain just how much of the various foods she should be having a day, or a week, or whatever the case may be. "You told me about milk, fruit and vegetables and all that," she explained, "but if you said how much of each, I'm afraid it didn't sink in." "Let's start with the milk," I replied. "I'd suggest a quart of that." "A quart!" she exclaimed in a rather startled voice. "Yes," I sa...

A New Heart And Lung [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

A New Heurt Anti Lung By a Staff Correspondent in London A LONDON surgeon, Dr. Denis Graham Melrose, inventor of a new mechani- cal heart-lung which may soon revolutionise heart operations, "went into smoke" last week. Ever since a London newspaper published a pic- ture of his new machine Dr. Melrose's telephone has not stopped ringing. More than a thousand people have ask- ed to have the new machine used on them. But Dr. Melrose is no showman. The initial opera- tion he had planned to do last week has been postpon- ed until some of the sound and fury dies. When his machine is used it will give heart surgeons five to eight more precious minutes in which they can handle a patient's heart. Even the most skilled heart surgeons dare not manipulate the heart for more than 10 minutes; now they will have a quarter of an hour to work their "miracles." The Melrose, machinery is housed in two mobile trol- leys-one containing the ar- tificial heart and lung, the other an electronic "brain" whi...

Wives Of "Air Sailors" Make A Picnic Of It [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Wives Of "Air Sailors" Make A Picnic Of It TPHERE will be no "gliding widows" when one of the biggest assemblies of gliders in Australian history takes the air in a pageant at Camden on October 31 and November 1. Laden with biscuits, sunglasses, children, cameras, cushions, and dogs, they will turn up, the way they do every summer Sunday, tumbling out of cars onto the cool grass of the airfield, strolling over to inspect the gliders. No Sydney women take an active part in gliding. But the women left on the ground, watching their menfolk soar silently, say with one voice, "Let's make a picnic of it." Among them, are those who yearn to fly-and will probably be able to do so as the clubs expand. Others never want to hear the sing- ing of the wind in the struts. But all are willing to play an active part in getting their men into the air-by helping with the actual construction and maintenance of the sail- planes, manning winches or cars for towing, or feeding the hungry aviators. In hel...
