SPEAREX PLANS FOR SYDNEY CUP [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
SPEAREX PLANS FOR SYDNEY CUP ?---» ? ? Spearex may be set for the Sydney Cup because of the excellent form he showed in winning the February Handicap at Randwick yesterday. His Cup weight is 8-3, or 51b less than he carried to an easy victory yesterday. The Sydney Cup (2m), of £10,000. will be run at Rand- wick on April l8. Yesterday, Spcarcx beat Men- tone easily by two lengths, with Regal Son third. Spearex, a specialist on soft tracks, is usually reserved for rac- ing during the winter. \ In most of his races Spcarcx has tailed right off. When he begins his run over the last six furlongs he frequently has conceded 15 or more lengths' start to the leader. Closer To Lead Yesterday, in a field of seven, he always seemed within strik- ing distance of the leadeis. Trainer G.,P. Nailon said yes- terday that Spcarcx was gallop- ing more freely than he ever had. "I have never known Spcarcx so free in his action, and felt fairly confident he would win to- day's race," Nailon said. Spearex...
Sorry, Mr. Perkins, It's Our "Dingwerth" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Sorry, Mr. Perkins, It's Our "Dingwerth" A Welsh migrant said yesterday that a "Herald" reporter- had made a "dingwerth" (bad blue) in spelling the name of a town in North Wales, Llanfairpwllgwyngyll gogfrychwyndrowllllandysilio-gogogock. The migrant, Mr. A. P. G. Perkins, * ought to know. He lived in the town for 20 years. Mr. Perkins says it should be spelt this way:, Llanfairtwl lswyngyllgogcrychwyrndrobwll -., llantysiliogogogoch. [A National Geographic pic- ture of the village shows a sign outside the post-office proclaiming it to be Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgog erychwyrndrobwlltysiliogogogoch] He said that translated into modern English the name meant "The Church of St. Mary in the' hollow of white hazels near to the rapid whirlpool and to St. i_ Tysilio's Church near to a red I cave." "The natives usually call it 'Llanfair,' but there are plenty of other 'Llanfairs' in Wales," he said. "On mail everyone writes the name out in full." Mr. Perkins, who is 25 and has a wife (Australia...
APPRENTICES SCARCE Industrial Impact [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
APPRENTICES SCARCE Industrial Impact "Because of the high wages of- fering for junior labour, many industries are not able to secure sufficient apprentices. The future development of the engineering industry is seriously jeopardised by the shortage of ap- prentices. , Some employers have been of- fering more than £3 for girls and £5 for boys in the 15-18 years age group. This has encouraged juniors to accept higher-paid unskilled jobs in preference to apprenticeships, which pay little more than £1/10/ a week for the first year. Some industries have been un- able to obtain apprentices for the boiler-making, moulding and blacksmithing sections. ."The apprentice intake is not sufficient to meet the loss occas- ioned by death and retirement," said Mr. J. V. Millane, manager of Malleable Castings Pty. Ltd., largest foundry in Australasia. "We need 15 to 20 apprentices each year. This year we got four," he said. "Unless youths offer for train- ing as moulders, the future of the whole engi...

What's around the Corner? frfARELY has the road ahead of the average Australian been AC more hopeful than it is to-day.... At the moment, of course, tve are contending with shortages and high prices, but through our undoubted production capacity these difficulties will be overcame. The foundations of a sound, secure and still more prosperous Australia are being laid now. That's as far as the nation as a whole it concerned. In the case of the individual, however, there must always remain some doubts. Nobody knows when sickness will occur, when accidents will happen, or when some other personal problem will interfere with the regular flow of income. These doubts are lessened for those who save. Regular weekly savings mount up so quickly that it's not really difficult to accumulate a fund to smooth out any rough patches which may lie in the road ahead . .. And, of course, there was never a better time to save than now. It is so difficult to obtain high "quality goods, and prices genera...

Novam Does Better [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
NovamDoes Better ' MELBOURNE, Satur- day.-Improving consid " erably on her form at Moonee Valley a fort night ago Novam, the grey ;, filly by Nizami, surprised ' by winning the Iramoo Handicap at Flemington to-day from the pace- maker, St. Hubert, and King Simeon. The hot favourite, Sun Blast, finished sixth. . NoVam was never farther back than fourth, and she ranged up ;to the leaders, St. Hubert and .Furore,'»soon after entering the straight. St. Hubert fought on deter- minedly, but he was inclined to hang and Novam outstayed him to win fairly comfortably on the post. King Simeon, who had been well placed throughout, defeated High Tar by inches for third. High Tar looked a possibility al the two furlong post, but he drifted out under pressure. Sun Blast Fails There appeared to -be no ex- cuse for Sun Blast. He jumped away well. Although outpaced by three or four others, he was handy at the straight entrance to win had he been good enough. However, be simply plodded on. Atomic Lass...

PLAN FOR £800,000 CAMP AT KIAMA An English syndicate plans to build an £800,000 holi- day camp for 2,000 people . near Kiama. The syndicate is negotiating a 99-year lease for about 90 acres of land surrounding East's Beach, two miles 'south of Kiama and about 75 miles south of Sydney. Mr. E. R. Lodge, who arrived dom England in October, 1947, io assess the Australian possi- bilities of holiday camps like those in England, laát week released details ot the scheme. Mr. Lodge said the proposed . amp would be called the Kiama Lido.

Bolivia Elevated To Third Line In Cup [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Bolivia Elevated To Third Line In Cup MELBOURNE, Satur- day.-Bookmakers raised Sydney horse Bolivia to the third line of fav-, ouritism for the Australian/ Cup after he had run a sound race trial at Flem- ington to-day. Bolivia was one of the tail endcrs early in to-day's Brook- side Handicap, and finished well to run sixth to Colin. Stewards later inquired into Bolivia's run, but accepted the explanations of the connections. F. Delaney, Bolivia's rider, told the stewards that, in attempting" to obey instructions to keep as close to the inside as possible, he found himself in a pocket in the straight from which he was unable to extricate himself. Evidence was given that the horse had been solidly supported by his connections. Victorian Dehut It was Bolivia's first start in Melbourne. He should appreciate the extra distance of the cup. Bolivia's stablemate, Leetona, also making his Melbourne debut, ran a close third in the Gooparle Welter. San Domenico, who has settled down well in M...
SYDNEY TRIP PLAN FOR STAR FILLY [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
SYDNEY TRIP PLAN FOR STAR FILLY » MELBOURNE, Sat. The Sydney-bred Lady Pirouette won her third successive race when she comfortably defeated a good class s field in. the Criterion Handicap at Flemington to-day. Her trainer, W. O'Dwyer, said after the race that Lady' Pirouette would be sent to Syd- ney for the autumn carnival if she maintained her form. Lady Pirouette is part owned by her breeder, Mr. F. W. Thompson, and the Sydney sportswoman, Mrs. A. F. Wilson. Heavily backed to favouritism, Lady Pirouette, starting from No. l8 position, finished determinedly near the centre of the track to defeat Valsar!. Ándela Four,th Charka was a moderate third in a photo-finish at the expense of the hitherto undefeated Adela, winner of the Debutante Stakes and the Maribyrnong Plate in the spring. She will probably be improved by the run-her first since October 30. Lady Pirouette has raced only four times and she is undoubtedly the smartest filly of the season. As in her previous successes, she...

Courage Of Bruce Makes Up For Small Stature By A Special Correspondent Champion New Zealand handicapper Bruce, who has 9.6 in the Doncaster and Sydney Cup, is probably one of the smallest horses ever lo receive such big weights in the Randwick double.' Standing just over 15 hands in height (the average good horse is usually about four inches taller, the gal- lant Bruce makes up what he lacks in inches with tre- mendous power across the back and great strength in the.hindquarters. Moreover, he has great cour- age, and finishes with rare deter- mination, Great Record Bruce has a top-class record in New Zealand, and if he strikes his best form he is likely to test the Sydney stayers and w.f.a. per- formers at the Easter carnival, In November he was second in the New Zealand Cup of two miles willi 8-13, conceding the winner (Sir Garnish) 261b. Beau Le Havre (9-7), Signal Officer (9-7), and other leading Dominion slayers were unplaced in a big field. At his next start, on December 4, he ...
Vance Palmer's Latest Novel [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Vance Palmer's Latest Novel VANCE PALMER has done a fine job in his new novel of' life on a developing silver-lead minefield.-"Golconda" (Angus and Robertson). The Golconda outcrop in out- back Queensland is discovered by a couple of wandering prospec- tors, pegged out by a couple of dozen other footloose fossickers, and, finally, developed by small mushroom mining companies, and then by a gigantic international concern. In this progress, a variety of characters must come into view, clashing and co-operating. Vance Palmer's primitive min- ing settlement, with its two-up school, sly-grog, and drought, and its warm camaraderie from miner, boarding-house keeper, store- keeper, and bai man is at once a realistic and a romantic picture. The leader of the community is Macy Donovan, the man who always takes the lead when things are to be run, who becomes union leader, and, finally, member of Parliament, and who looks to be on the verge of throwing over his old mates as greatness comes to h...

Racehorse Begs For His Carrots [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Racehorse Begs For His Carrots HEROIC SOVEREIGN, one of Sydney's top sprinters, is rated by stable connections ; as without peer as a beggar. , ' Daily, when Mr. Jeffrey, hus ; band of the gelding's owner, ap ; proaches, Heroic Sovereign does " all but ask for a carrot. - The play between the gelding U and Mr. Jeffrey starts when Heroic Sovereign begins a scries of remarkable motions with his lips. When Mr. Jeffrey asks: "Want a carrot, old boy?" Heroic Sov- ereign twists head and neck at an extraordinary angle and his lip [movements are as eloquent as a 'spoken plea. Saturday is the one day of the week when carrots are not avail- able, even for a monarch among beggars. "Believe it or not, 'Heroic' knows when Saturday comos around, and we never indulge in our game then," Mr. Jeffrey says. In a stable of oddities (Bon eith stands for hours biting his tongue) is a very ordinary look- ing tabby cat. , It differs from other cats in that it answers only when whistled.
