Turf Now Has Its "Court" Ten Men Who Give A Total Of 100 Hours A Week In Cause Of Racing [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Turf Now Has Its "Court" Ten Men Who Give A Total Of 100 Hours A Week In Cause Of Racing ^ By JOHN SCHOFIELD Sydney's newest "court"-the com- mittee of the Australian Jockey. Club-is composed of len men who voluntarily and freely give 3 00 mau hours every week to the administration of racing. This service to racing has been going on for a long time -taken for granted by the average racegoer, without asking who the men are who so serve racing, and what it costs them ia time. The public now has a chance lo sec at work the men who in the past havc'laboufcd behind the scenes-controlling, just for the love of it, the million-pound busi- ness of. racing in New South Wales. Now Open Courl This opportunity comes from the fact that the public can now sit in at the hearing of appeals by the A.J.C. committee. . Even at that, the people in- terested enough to attend an appeal hearing will see only one part of the committee's work. But it is an exacting part-with long and keen disputation on poi...
Comedian Offended A Town [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Comedian Offended A Town ENGLISH comedian Freddie Bamberger, who arrived in Sydney a day or two ago, was once "rubbed out" by the B.B.C. for six months for having "insul- ted" one of the industrial towns of the Midlands. . The, town was Dudley. . Hex called it Deadly, and the mayor and corporation duly complained. Bamberger, who finds no diffi- culty in being a comedian and gag-man off, the stage as well as on it, said last week that Dudley could learn a lot from the quick wittedncss and warm-heartedness of Australian audiences who, he thinks, are as quick as lightning in "catching on" to subtleties and. double meanings, even when they aren't there to be caught on to. Bamberger says the lot of a comedian on the B.B.C.-is hard in impromptu patter and gagging so many rules have to be remem- bered; a comedian isn't allowed to mention vdeath .or funerals or illness (too depressing, 'says the Board), he isn't allowed to stutter or lisp . . . But Bamberger is quick with his humour. Twelve...

SPOTLIGHT ON WORLD AFFAIRS Two Ex-Enemy States Were Growing Stronger [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
¿¡gil * SPOTLIGHT ON WOULD AFFAIUS ]gT__ Two Ex-Enemy States Were Growing Stronger THERE were growing signs last week that two beaten enemies were gathering their strength again to play their part in post-war production. The economy of Western Germany was recovering - too much, said some critics. Japan's merchant shipping fleet was al- ready bigger than a U.S. Reparations Commis- sion had thought it should be. Articles from our London and New York offices tell .tlw story of the revival. BRITISH hopes for the swift . recovery of the European economy are now being mingled with a few FROM IAN BEVAN IN LONDON fears that recovery in the Western Zones of Germany might have gone too far already. Coal and steel production in the Ruhr have increased so rapidly recently that British in . dustrialists are seriously fright- ened of competition. The Americans, who are sub- sidising the western zones.to the tune of something like 1,000 mil- lion dollars a year (£A312 mil- lion), are naturally anx...
China: Soviet Gained, Workers Wondered [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
China: Soviet Gained, Workers Wondered From JAXÎK PERCIVAL IN SHANGHAI WHATEVER, else Rus v* sia gets out of the overrunning of China by Mao Tse-tung's Communist forces, she is going to tighten her hold on the sprawling province of Sinkiang in the north-west! When the dying Nationalist Government was trying tp set up some sort of nominal administra- tion in Canton, the only foreign envoy that went there was the Soviet Ambassador, General N. V. Rischin. He went to sign an agreement under which Russia will have a monopoly for between 40 and SO years in mining oil, tungsten, gold, silver, ebal, and other minerals in Sinkiang. Russia will also have the right to prospect for uranium. This is more than a nominal right, for traces of this mineral, necessary for atomic energy work, have already been ' found in the province. Also, Russia will have a trade monopoly in the province's wool. Otherwise, last week found Western businessmen sitting tight in Shanghai waiting to see how they were goi...

Japan's Shipping Still On Increase [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Japan's Shipping Still On Increase From OUR NEW YORK OFFICE IN the three and a half years * since the end of the war, Japan has built up her merchant marine to 1,676,912 tons. Already this exceeds the 1,500,000 tons which Mr. Edwin Pauley recommended when he surveyed the Japanese economy as Reparations Commissioner in 1946. Japanese shipyards are still turning out 20,000 tons of ship- ping a month. But many U.S. administrators both on the spot in Japan and in the United States itself are urging that Japanese shipping should be increased still more, for domestic traffic and later for world trade. A recent mission from Japan carried a.proposal to Washington that 91 war-time Liberty ships should be turned over to Japan. This alone would mean more than a million tons extra in Japan's merchant fleet. . . * THE strongest motive behind American support for a large Japanese merchant marine is the million dollars a day which the supply of Japan's deficiencies is currently costing the United ...

Guards Keep Atom Secrets [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Guards Keep Atom Secrets ]VEW YORK.-Americans have just dis- covered that the Atomic Energy Com- mission maintains a formidable little armed force of its own. The force exceeds 6000 men and it is equipped with . Tanks. . Armoured patrol and scout cars. . Light planes. . Machine-guns, carbines and pistols. * -fc * 'T'HE Commission is charged * with the task of developing bigger and better atomic bombs; investigating the peace-time uses of atomic energy; and guarding the nation's atomic'secrets. Details of the special force leaked out when it held manoeuvres in conjunction with the regular army. The Commission hastily denied that it maintained "A private army." The force, it said, consisted of "guards." The Commission controls or is interested in 1,273 special plants or factories in various parts of the United States. In war, the special force would have to hold these factories at all costs, until the arrival of regular troops.

In Canberra They Are . . . Saying . . . A/TR. MENZIES' return to the leadership of the Liberals in Federal Parliament after a six months' health trip abroad will mean a vigorous and hard-hitting session. Whether it will mean the same degree of happy relations within the Liberal Party as prevailed" in his absence is another matter. Whatever qualities Mr. Harrison may have lacked as acting leader, he showed a far better apprecia- tion of the value of team-work than Mr. Men- zies.

Leader Beaten [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Leader Beaten Petersham, without one of &nbsp; its regular skips, Les Ferrier, upended section leader Campsie in No. 1 pennant yesterday to win by 11. &nbsp; Ernie Kerry had to be pressed into service to replace Ferrier, and did well to hold Sam Morri- son to a margin of 2. Dr. Barriskill and Jack Flegler, each 8 up, more than offset the wins of Sid Parsons,- 3 up, and Sam Morrison, 2 down. Sid Parsons, a former skip for Petersham, played against his old club, yesterday. He has also resigned as green keeper for Petersham. City had to struggle for a win against Victoria Park in section 4. Down 15 at half-way, City eventually won bv 11, mainly due to the strong finish of Gan y Noble (up 15") and Peter Cal ligeros (up 8). Dr. Benjamin was down 16 to Sktltan, although he personally played well. » Sargeant and Frost had an even fight, the former winning by 4. Leader Minnis played a splen- did game.

TAX EXPERT TELLS: Why A Widow Can't Have A Mite [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
TAX EXPERT TELLS: Why A Widow Can't Have A Mite J. A. L. GUNN, the writer of this article, is a well-known tax' con- sultant-and author of the standard work on Com- monwealth Income Tax. THERE is something contemp- tible about a law which de- mands a state of destitution on the part of a father or mother before a child can qualify for a tax rebate for supporting them. This is the position concerning rebates granted under Section 160 (2) (C) of the Income Tax Assess- ment Act. The parent must be a resident and "wholly maintained by the taxpayer." The maximum amount* of re- bate is £45 for one dependant parent, or £90 if the taxpayer keeps both his mother and father. Otherwise the rebate is calcul- able on £150 for one or £300 tor both parents. These figures are multiplied by the average tax rate on the taxpayer's income from personal exertion, plus l8 pence. The catch about getting the re- bate is in the words "wholly main- tained by the taxpayer." This restriction is illustrated by ...

1945 Swimming Controversy Recalled BOURKE RETAINS STATE 110 TITLE NARROW MARGIN [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
1945 Swimming Controversy Recalled ^ BOURKE RETAINS STATE 110 TITLE NARROW MARGIN By Frank Tierney Bruce Bourke retained his 110 yards free-style title at the New South Wales Amateur Swimming Association's carnival at the North Sydney baths last night. In a thrilling finish he beat Garry Taylor, 16, of Bondi, and Bruce Taylor, of University. The official verdict was a "touch," with Taylor a few inches away. When the times for the race -60.6s, 61s, and 61.5s-were announced ironical remarks were made by a section of the onlookers. They recalled the controver- sial 110 yards championship race in 1945, in which Robin Biddulph beat Jack Campbell. Biddulph and Campbell swam stroke for stroke, and Biddulph dived his hand for- ward under the water to win. Campbell's outstretched fingers touched clear. Was Close Campbell and his supporters claimed that he had retained his championship. . Finally n newspaper plloto sraph showed the decision was correct. Last night Taylor was seen to touch ahe...
