A FASHION SUMMARY. FOR THE MODES TO COMh. Wais' lines are definite, but that) doss not mean that they are all tight ly belted. Tucks, folds and shirring are excellent suostiiutes for belts. CJapes make a charming comple ment to the high waistline, and one milt ib flat ering to most figures, rtoms ~-£ tem are elbow length and impart an ail* of youthful jauntiness to dresses and coats. Usually they come pretty far round in front, some of them cover the sleeve. Puff sleeves give a quaint note to evening frocks. Newes. tennis frocks nave sleeves to the elbow. Afternoon dresses have sleeves that stop at the elbow and carry flowing ends that reach to the knees. beams are used cleverly to give 4-.-- livsvlt tiidieflin.OC* so:ne i' reneh dresses rely almost en tirely on beautifully s itched seams to give that individual touch thatj spells Paris. | Necklines have risen along with'; waistlires.

A NATURAL SEQUENCE. BLOUSES ARE INCREASING IN IMPORTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930
A NATURAL SEQUENCE. BLOUSES ARE INCREASING IN IMPORTANCE. When designers definitely decided that the normal waistline was to re turn, the . restoration of the blouse ;o its former position, of importance was a natural sequence. The old tiine shirt blouse plays an imnor tant oart in autumn suits. If you have always been addicted to the blouse, and have eschewed it because you felt it was oUt of the fashion picture, you need restrain yourself no longer. There are several sorts of blouses, j Some designers continue to sponsor j '.he over blouse; others are definitely committed to the tuck-in, and others make a blouse, that slips over, but defines the waistline very decided .with a belt. One originator says crepe de cmne for blouses; another like satin; and a third is devoted to tiie lingerie blouse that is made of very fine cot ton or handkerchief linen. There is; undoubtedly, a. general liking for the off -shades of white. The reason is, of course, that off white is more becoming than...

HOW THEY RAN. Don Cooper was never far away from the leaders In the Trial Stakes, and ran into second place coming down the hill. After following Radiant Revel, into the straight he went on full of running and won' very easily. I Goalong was always in the leading division, and ran his race out well to take second money. ? Radiant Revel did all the pacing;, and still had command when they turned for home, but she faded over the last bit and was beaten into third place. .

SIR ADRIAN KNOX COMES BACK. HUGE STUD MAY WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930
SIR ADRIAN KNOX COMES BACK. « t HUGE STUD MAY WORRY. t Sir Adrian Knox's elevation to the position of Chief Justice of the Com-, - monwealth caused his retirement from racing. Now he returns to it as . otfner of the largest studs in the . Commonwealth. Whether he will find that portion of John Brown's bequest an unmixed blessing is doubtful. He cannot well be expected to continue operations on the scale of the late owner, and there will be a lot of worry in culling the marcs and their progeny. Brown owned about 250 brood mares, and presumably many of these will be sent to auction, and there is bound to be a large draft of year lings from Darbalara next season. Before then many untried geld ings and fillies will probably be sent to auction, but, as it would be un- . wise to flood the market, it will be a long time before the Darbalara: Stud will be. reduced' to a size that will - make it easy to handle. One thing helpful to the new owner is that in L. Bower he has a capable manager. ...

Phar Lap's Great Exhibition of Galloping. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930
Phar Lap's €reat Exhibition of Galloping. I One of the most sensational races] ever witnessed on any Australian racecourse was the A.J.C. Plate ol 21 miles. There were oniy three; runners, Kidaides being withdrawn.! There were many people who thought Nightmarch might outstay Phar Lap if -ip arinnted his usual custom of getting a big break on his opponent. This was what Phar Lap did from the moment the barrier rose. Phar Lap set out to make a one horse race of it, and he succeeded. Phar Lap was at a wonderful price, seeing 'hat at one stage of the bett ing 2 to 1 could be laid on him, but the general quote was 9 to 4 on, while Nigvhtma'reh hovered between 3/1 and 2/1. It was easilv Phar Lap's most sen-i sational of many of his sensational rictories, and hi ran the two and a! quarter miles in 3.39 & sees., which beats the course record for the dis tance by seven and a quarter sees. It also broke the Australasian record held by Nadean by a second. The following were the interme...
