The Big Store is a Combination of Battleship, Museum, and Zoo, but to the Salesgirl It's the WILD BEAST in the Customer that presents the major problem [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

The Big Store is a Combination of Battleship, Museum, and Zoo, but to the Salesgirl It's the WILD BEAST in the Customer i ê Jtk^ . ^-^ ¿ss thal presents the major problem By F. W. L. ESCH ILLUSTRATED BY ARTHUR NICHOL ÂBIG city store is a conv bination of a battleship, a zoo, and a museum. . It is like a battleship. because it must run with hair-trigger co- ordination and preci- sion. . It is like a zoo because it brings together two kinds of people who have to spend some ' time looking at each other. . It is like a museum be- cause huge crowds swarm in just to look around. And even if entry were not free, . they would get their money's worth. ON the zoo aspect, opinion differs, according to which side of the counter it comes from, on which is the animal. But during sales, there is no doubt. Assistants sav that then the wild beast comes out in the customer, and they are like keepers trying to control a bunch of starving-and fero- cious-animals.

Hay Street has never been Hay Street to others than the punctilious: It is only "the street leading down to the markets." It is holiday at Paddy's Markets every ' Friday. There, then, for a brie? space is life and a cross-section of all the types that go to make the life and interest of a city.

RarlrCUfínn* Open golf champion, H. "Ossie" Pickworth demonstrates his backswing. LEFT: Three-quarter back; DdUOWIIiy. CENTRE: Hands at top of swing; RIGHT: The club coming down. H. "OSSIE" PICKWORTH Says: Being A "Hitter" Brought Success In Second Open ALTHOUGH I did not win my first open championship until October, 1946, I had to defend it within about eight months in the following May. Queensland was the venue of the 1947 contest, and May is a much more suitable month for golf there than October. 1 had found faults in my game when I won the 1946 Open, and* I had to go into more than usual- ly severe practice to get rid of them. I went north two weeks before the championship to get the feel of the local greens and fairways, and to limber up a little. . It is a little difficult .at first to concentrate in new surround- ings, but 1 was soon able to get down to the state of mind in which everything but the actual stroke being made is completely shut out. !

More "Goers" In Racing Than Many May Believe [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

More "Goers" In Racing Than Many May Believe By BILLY COOK Billy Cook reveals that in his 241 years of race : riding he has never been approached to "pull" a ' horse. , YOU hear far more stories about the crook- edness of racing than you do about the best features of the game. I suppose ever since there has been betting on horses there have been tales of rigged races. But you can take it from mc there are far more "goers" in races than disgruntled punters would have you believe. Believe me, there are very few non-triers. In fact. I'd go so far as to say most of the horses who don't win are horses who can't win. And of the balance, there are those who are just plain unlucky in running. I suppose the most sensational feature of my 24i years as a jockey is that I have never been approached to stop" a horse from winning. Not sensational? Well, per- haps it isn't-but it is a notable fact that sounds a healthy note in favour of racing. How many jockeys could make a similar claim I don't k...

The race' was sailed in light south to south-easterly winds. Windward II overhauled the early 'leader Wathara (J. ' D. Borrowman) at Middle Head on the return frqm Manly and was never'headed. .Cooroyba (Dr. H. S. Kirk- land) finished second and the big schooner Ada (W. J. Stuart) third. In the Sydney Amateur Sailr ing Club's race for the Harry Shelley Memorial Trophy, Mav jepe (J, A. Paul) led almost throughout, but thS event was won by Janaway (W. R. Ward). Zephyr (C, K. Gilkcs) was forced to retire early when she collided with a small 12ft Vee Jay boat, sailing out of control. This caused Zephyr to foul the Blinker Buoy, off Nielsen Park. In Middle Harbour Yacht Club's No. 1 division for the Selo Cup, the scratch boat Carina (C. Smith) sailed too close to the shore off Castle Rock and lay a...

Mavis Gains Second To Defiance [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

Mavis Gains Second To Defiance J Defiance yesterday gained an easy victory in the 130-tniles Islands * ocean yacht race. Mavis, skippered by Archie Robertson, made a dramatic dash up the harbour last night to snatch second place from Kyeema. Third yacht to enter the Heads, Mavis crossed the finishing line near Clark Island at 8.14 p.m. On corrected time, she had a 20s advantage over Kyeema, the second to finish. Defiance's corrected time was 4h 34m 25s, Mavis's Gh 9m 50s, and Kyeema'.s 6h 10m 10s, At 8 p.m. Mavis reported that Janet M. was about two and a half hours behind her, and Mis- tral li about one and a half hours further back. Officials said late last night that, as the breeze had dropped, with an ebb tide running, it was unlikely that either Janet M, or Mistral II would enter the Heads before daylight.' There were no casualties in the race, but six yachts withdrew, leaving five in the race. Withdrawals were Josephine (B, Penton), Pakerdoo (D. C. Brockhoff). Stormbird (J. He...

FILMS FILM STAR STEWART GRANGER WON BOXING TITLE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

FILMS FILM STAR STEWART GRANGER WON BOXING TITLE "T'M a tall man with a short *- temper," Stewart Granger. 36-year-old British film star, re- marked recently, as he lowered his six feet two inches into .< studio chair. "That's quite untrue," his se«, retary flashed. "I wouldn't wor: for anyone else in this country ' Granger's success goes back 12 years to when he was dismissed from the London Bell Punch Company for arguing with the management. His name was then james Stewart. He decided he had better take up a new career, chose acting, and changed his name to avoid con- fusion with the American film star. . After a year with the Webber Douglas School, of Acting, he played with the Hull and Bir- mingham Repertory companies for two years. A season with the famous Old Vic Company followed. In 1940 he made his first film, "So This Is London." Other films followed until he achieved real fame in "Man in Grey." nPHE war halted Granger's * screen career. He served with the' Londo...

Dutch Coach Helps Judy Canty [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

Dutch Coach Helps Judy Canty Dutch coach Jan Blan- kers created a precedent, and incidentally broke one of his own rules, at the Sports Ground yesterday. He gave the Australian broad-jump champion, Olym- pian Judy Canty, coaching ad- vice while she was winning the junior broad jump champion- ship of N.S.W. "I have never coached during a championship in my life," he said later. "However, this was my last opportunity to assist women ath- letes in Australia, and as I am convinced Miss Canty will be a world champion, I took the opportunity lo help her." Leaping 'and raising his legs high, Blankers told Miss Canty to get the maximum height in her trajectory. He also checked her starting marks, and slightly shortened her approach run. "Speed and height are import- ant," he told Judy. It is not usual for coaches to give advice to their charges dur- ing a competition. Miss Canty retained her junior title with a leap of 18ft 2iin only 1 iin less than her own State junior record. The Australi...

Lithgow Girl Again Beats Dutch Star BLANKERS SAYS TRACK VISITOR STUMBLES NEAR FINISH [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

ft ' Lithgow Girl Again Beats Dutch Star BLANKERS SAYS TRACK FAULTY « r VISITOR STUMBLES NEAR FINISH By Frank Tierney In the most sensational race of her career, Dutch star, Mrs. Fanny Blankers-Koen was beaten for the second time yesterday by the 17 year-old Lithgow athlete, Marjorie Jackson. Stumbling at the 65-yards mark when fighting Miss Jackson for the lead, Mrs. Blankers-Koen faltered, tried to recover, and went through the tape out of place. After the race the Dutch star's husband, Jan Blanker«, claimed that the Sports Ground track was faulty. While Miss Jackson was being congratulated, Jan Blankers walked on to the track and poked his umbrella into the ground. Officials watching Mr. Blankers gained the impression that Mrs. Blankers-Koen had put her foot into a pothole. They immediately rushed for- ward to examine the track, but found only the marks of runners' spikes. Blankers, however, persisted in his view that the track was faulty. "Such a thing could never happen anywher...

Stable Goat Is Good Luck Symbol [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

Stable Goat Is Goo4 Luck Symbol By GEORGE MILLER Anyone who speaks disparagingly to trainer D. Lewis's employees of a goat takes his life in his hands. For to Lewis's men a goaf is a symbol of good luck, and as experience has shown, with good reason. LEWIS'S employees, from foreman to the youngest stableboy, scoff at superstition. Others, they say, are at liberty to have their views, to put their trust in this token or that omen. But to them a goat is the symbol of truth and encourage- ment. Early" in August, 1947, mern ROYAL LAD watching Mary and her kids. bers of Lewis's staff, at the veteran trainer's stables in High Street, Randwick, were awaiting a happy event. All were interested in the weU fare of Nanny, a goat of vaunted pedigree and docile mien. And all were certain that'no good luck, would come to the stable until Nanny's kid had arrived. The bustle of a race morning took on added zest on Monday, August 4, when the staff was preparing horses for the Bank Holiday meeting at...

NO ROYAL TOUR BEFORE 1951 STAFF CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

NO ROYAL TOUR *^ BEFORE 1951 STAFF CORRESPONDENT. LONDON, Feb. 12- ' People in close touch with the Palace say that the earliest possible date for the Royal tour of Australia and New Zealand is January, 1951. I Political and health reasons both combine to make an earlier date extremely un- likely, they say. The King could not be out of England during the general elec- tion, which will probably be in May, 1950. His health is improving, but full recovery is very slow. By July this year-the latest that a 1950 tour could be an- nounced-his health will not be advanced sufficiently for his doc- tors to give their consent to an arduous oversea journey. MARCH INVESTITURE He will undertake no public en- gagements in England before June, except for a few' special events within the palace, such as an investiture on March 1. , Even for the investiture, the King will have to sit, although traditionally the Monarch stands throughout the ceremony. When he docs resume public engagements, it will be...

S.A. BATS APPEAL . Lindwall had bowled only six balls when South Australia batted again, be- fore an appeal by the batsmen agafnst the light was upheld. Play finally ended for the day at 5.20 p.m. Walker and Johnston, the - ninth-wicket N.S.W. batsmen, after hanging on rather well in ? the dull light, unsuccessfully ap- pealed at 4.27 p.m. ' . Twenty minutes later, umpires Elphinston and McKinnon con- ferred and decided that the light was bad enough to suspend play. After the initial appeal, the ' question of the light in this innings was in the ' umpires' hands. But I fancy they got a "nudge" from the batsmen shortly ' before they made their decision. "' Hoots and cat-calls came from groups on the "hill" and from some people on the stands while the-players were off the field. .The light improved quickly. WJicn the umpires reappeared, . just before 5 p.m., they were counted out. . There were further demonstra. tions before Hanlin was, bowled. , When the South Australian batsmen appe...

YOUNG DISTRICT HAS REMEDY FOR RABBIT PLAGUE Unremitting Destruction From Our Land Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

(YOUNG DISTRICT HAS REMEDY FOR RABBIT PLAGUE Unremitting Destruction From Our Land Editor 1 YOUNG, Saturday.-The Young: Pastures Protection Board believes it has the answer to the rabbit problem. It offers this as proof: 3,000 square miles of country where the pest is much less serious than it once was. The Board's remedy is simple-ceaseless killing by every available means. The Board claims that . Twenty-five years ago, this part of the south-western slopes was almost completely overrun by rabbits-its carrying capacity Was only one sheep to three acres. . To-day, it is running almost a sheep to the acre. The Board's object is to have the district proclaimed the first rabbit-free area in New South Wales. "NEGLIGENCE" The rabbit inspector for the Young Pastures Protection Board, Mr. George Bell, told me: | "The cause of the rabbit plague is not the mysterious arrival of a wave of rabbits from nowhere. "Mainly it is the result of land- holders' negligence. "Young is freer of rabbits t...
