Talent and toughness spell success to Evie Hayes, who fled Hollywood, shone in revue, and is currently the star of "Annie, Get Your Gun." OAKLEY, MAHONEY, HAYES —Who IS Evie? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Talent and toughness spell success to Evie Hayes, who fled Hollywood, shone in revue, and is currently the star of "Annie. Get Your Gun." OAKLEY, MAHONEY, HAYES -Who IS Evie? Evie Hayes gave-Hollywood away when it was suggested plastic surgery might remodel her nose. She has an outlandish taste in breakfasts, says JOHN BRENNAN, who wrote thi? article, but ?he is nice to know. ^HERE'S no hope for -*-Evie Hayes: not the slightest. She's a convinced American. No matter how attractive- ly-produced is Mr. *Calwell"s "Form of Application for Naturalisation: Australian Ci- tizen (British Subject). All Nations Rights Reserved" it can never hope to lure her. Not even the introduction of a "more impressive cere- monial of naturalisation" would ¡merest her. After eight years in Australia she still cats an American-type breakfast! Sausages, bacon and hotcakes. all on the one plate, and all dunked in sweet maple syrup! It is one of those incredible truths which makes the most lurid fiction seem ...
SNOOZE TIME at CENTRAL Sydney's Central Station at midnight and after is no place for a lady—or for anyone else, in the opinion of the writer of this article. The predominating scenery is closed doors, the atmosphere smoke and dust. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
SNOOZE TIME ai CENTRAL By EVE MERRITT Sydney's Central Station at midnight and alter is no place for a lady-or for anyone else, in the opinion of the writer of this article. The predominating scenery" is closed doors, the atmosphere smoke and dust. 1WENT to Central Sta- tion, Sydney, about mid- night. It was a Wednes- day. Even so. I expected to see something interesting. But closed doors was the predominating scenery. I couldn't buy an apple, a sand- wich, a magazine, a milk-shake or 2 chocolate: not even a cup of coffee. I could, of course have made a "phone-call or visited the police, but I didn't. It just happened that I wasn't in the mood. Near the main indicator men snoo7ed on seats in assorted attitudes. It seemed a good idea. Unfortunately there wasn't space for a lady. The ladies' waiting-room was closed,, naturally, and as the rubbish-bins were too small to provide a comfortable resting place, I went to my train. Jt wasn't due to leave till a quarter to three, but bv mid- ...
There's A Mink Coat For You, If You Have £2,000 To Spare [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
There's A Mink Coat! For You, If You ! ¡Have £2,000 To Sparel The coat in the picture above is of Koh-i-Noor mink, which is specially bred from freak animals. Skins are pale sjl\er-grey, with a dark stripe. The cost is about £1,500. Sydney stores now have . more mink coats than at any time since pre-war. Women are not invading the) Stores at opening time to fight for the first post-war minks, but most shops have reported a steady sale. The only difference now be- tween buying a mink 'coat or building a house is that the house ¡ takes longer. ! Both cost about the same. j Full-length mink coats, with, the newest new look, start at about 2,000 guineas and go up to almost twice this amount. If you don't want to spend that much money on a winter coat then you can buy a mink stole a long wide scarf-which costs only £500. "If mink coats were , three times the price women would still want them," a salesman in the fur department of a city store said this week. "They buy them because they'll...

SPORT A NATURAL GRIP BEST FOR LEG-BREAKS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
SPORT A NATURAL GRff BEST FOR LEG-BREAKS By W. J. O'REILLY YOU. may have noticed that I have made no reference whatever to the correct grip of the ball in bowling. I have done this intentionally as I am a firm believer in allowing lads to persist with the grip which comes naturally to them I have been ¿tsked many times by ambitious lads to show them the "proper grip" for the leg break and my answer has always been. "There is no 'proper' grip, son; any one will do so long as you can make the ball spin round quickly as it leaves your fingers." When I was a youth, filled with the enthusiasm so necessary to go places in cucket I was told that I held the ball more like a goiter holds his driver than a leg break bowler generally holds the ball Jt must have been Providence that steeled mc against accepting the advice of those who urged mc to grip the ball in the accus- tomed style. To the deuce with custom. Grip the ball how you will, but make it spin. The ball which breaks from the leg si...
SPOTLIGHT ON WORLD AFFAIRS Shots In Persia Told Of A Trouble-Spot [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
[jPajTlGrTTON WORLD AFFAIRS 1 Shots In Persia Told Of A Trouble-Spot From H. G. KIPPAX In London DERSIA, another of those trouble-spots where the frontier of Russian influence jostles the frontier of influence of the Western Powers, floats under the international spotlight only now and again. Five shots were fired last week-end at its Shah, 29-year-old Reza Pahlevi. The Govern- ment blamed the Communist Tudeh Party, but in that troubled country the Shah faces assassination threats on many sides. FEAR, fanaticism, and hunger make an explosive mixture, and all those elements exist abundantly in Persia. The" Shah's assailant was a journalist. He used his Press camera as a passport to get close to the-Shah, but the best he could do at point-blank range was to graze the Shah in the back and wound him slightly on the lip. Persia's leaders are constantly in that sort of danger. They and their British and American advisers are beset with a variety of problems. To know who the assailant migh...

New placings are Convivi- ality 1, Frolicsome 2, Sir Alex 3. An injunction is likely to be sought restraining the AJ.C. from paying first prize to Mr. F. W. Hughes, owner of Con- viviality. Jim McCurlcy, trainor of Conviviality, is upset because he had the Conviviality-Skilled double backed for big money. (Skilled won the same day.) Battlers fear that disquali- fication of leased horses will adversely affect them. Barita is leased by Mr. R. Eowcock to Messrs. J. H. Robinson and T. McDced.

Notes On Events Of The Week [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Notes On Events Of The Week By COLIN BINGHAM _ THE Big Four-Britain, the United States, Russia, and France-are having another shot at producing a peace» treaty for Austria. This is the third conference on the subject in three years. Of course the Foreign Ministers of the four Powers have long since given up wrangling over a table about Austria. It is their Deputies who now go through the mangle of "diplomacy by exhaustion." When they adjourned in May last year they had held 110 meetings and smoked 10,000 cigarettes. But they had got nearer to success than at any time since the end of the war. On the face of it the Yugo- slavs-and not the Russians caused the breakdown. They . asked for a slice of Austrian territory called Carinthia, in- habited by 140,000 people, of whom fewer than 20,000 are Slovenes, together with £30,000,000 in reparations and all Austrian property in Yugo- slavia as well. Russia backed.these prepos- terous Yugoslav claims and therefore in a vital sense she was re...
"Wood-Pecker" Out In Search Of Loan FROM OUR LONDON OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
"Wood-Pecker" Out In Search Of Loan FROM OUR LONDON I OFFICE A MERICANS might find two ?*"*? things about Lord Tref garne hard to get used to when he visits them in the next two weeks to raise a loan from the World Bank to set Britain's Colonial Development Corpora- tion going. One is his peculiar combination of jobs, which-already had the British public asking questions last week. As well as being chairman of the Government corporation, Lord Trefgarne is also a director of the Tobacco Securities Trust. This is associated with British American Tob- acco, and that firm has inter- ests in some of the African col- onies that the Colonial devel- opment Corpora- tion will have to develop. Lord Tref- garne is also chairman of the Government's Television Advis- ory Committee, and in Britain, at least, his critics think that should be a full-time job. . . * THE other point about Lord Trefgarne which is going to interest Americans at the World Bank is that he once wrote a book called "Ventur...
Eisenhower On Defence Work Again From OUR WASHINGTON OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Eisenhower On Defence Work Again I From OUR WASHINGTON OFFICE TWE guard outside the War Department Pentagon building in Washington stopped a tall gentleman in a tailored blue business-snit the other day. "Have you got a pass?" the guard inquired. For a reply, he got a grin which is known around the world. Then the guard knew it was Eisenhower. General Dwight Eisenhower is wearing mufti these days, and, in fact, wearing it so well that male fashion experts recently selected him "the best-dressed man in education." But the Defence Department still cannot do without him. . * . ONLY last week he was re- called to duty to work as temporary presiding officer of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The news that Eisenhower was back in Washington caused some alarm about the international situation. The White House spokesman denied there was any cause for alarm. Observers guessed that Eisenhower's job might just be to stop the Services wrangling among themselves. . . - .' AT Columbia University, New Y...
Trainer's Grip In Sprints [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Trainer's Grip In Sprints MELBOURNE, Satur- day.-With Gay Archer and High Play, young Werribee trainer Stan Murphy has a strong hand in the Oakleigh Plate and Newmarket Handicap. High Play raced away from his 27 opponents to win the Paddock Handicap, run over the Newmarket course to-day. He started favourite at 4-1. The stable scratched Gay Archer from the Paddock Han- dicap. The brilliant Gay Archer is likely to start favourite for the Oakleigh. Mr. O. R. Porter sold* High Play for 450 guineas about three months ago to Miss M. Perry, of New South Wales. The gelding originally cost Mr. Porter 5,000gns and won several races for him. The Newmarket looks an ideal race for High Play. His weight drops 41b from the 8-12 he carried to-day. High Play scored so impres- sively that little excuse could be made for other Newmarket can- didates.
COLTS IN KEEN DEMAND [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
COLTS IN KEEN DEMAND ? |> Thrcc-ycar-olds Bern- brook and Carbon Copy were linked yesterday in a £50,000 double on the Doncaster Handicap and the Sydney Cup. Bernbrook, raced by Mr. A. O. Romano, is handicap- ped at 8-4 for the Doncas- ter Handicap, 51b below the toprankirig three-year-old San Domenico. Carbon Copy has 8-5 in the Sydney Cup, or 31b below Comic Court, ' the most highly-fated three-year-old in that race. Both horses were contenders for the 1948 AJ.C. Derby, which Carbon Copy won from Vaga- bond and Foxzami. This time it is not intended to persevere with Bernbrook as a stayer. He will miss the St, Leger, in which Carbon Copy is almost certain to be a runner. Silent Move Before the races yesterday Silent was coupled with leading Sydney Cup horses in big doubles at long prices. He was taken with comparative outsiders for sums ranging from £20,000 to £40,000. The move had a lot to do with the sharp contraction of Silent's price for the Glenfield Handicap, in which he f...
Winner Colin Not In Big Cup Race [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Winner Colin Not In Big Cup Race MELBOURNE, Satur-, day.-The owner-trainer of Colin, who beat Aus- tralian Cup favourite, Dashing Beau, at Flem- ington to-day, did not consider the gelding for- ward enough in condition to be entered for the Cup. However, the owner, Mr, R. Roach, had a good win on Colin in the Brookside Handi- cap to-day. Mr. Roach bred Colin at Junee (N.S.W.). Colin is a son of Collingwood, site of another good Melbourne winner in Colin's Pride, . The dam, Belle Marie, also produced last week's winner Real Guy. Good Record Colin, a five-year-old, has now won three races in his last four starts, His previous successes were in tLi country. He has been lightly uiced, be- cause he fell out of a float while going to the races early in his career. The float was travelling at 50 miles an hour, and Colin was lucky to escape with a damaged off foreleg. Dashing Beau's trainer, F, Manning, had no excuses lo make. -,
TIRED, OLD PLANT MEANS BLACKOUTS By A Special Reporter [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
TIRED, OLD PLANT MEANS BLACKOUTS By A Special Reporter Because Bunnerong powerhouse plant is old and overworked and the delivery of new plant has been delayed, blackouts will continue in Sydney for the next 12 months, or longer. &lt;That is the opinion of the Sydney County Council, the general manager, Mr. G. S. Boyd, said yesterday. Council experts say that unless a co-ordinated plan, pro- viding for staggered working hours, or a power-less day, is prepared' now, Sydney risks a disastrous power failure. "If we are to have blackouts, let them be organised black- outs-rationing," an engineer on the job said. Bunnerong plant has deteriora- ted because poor-quality coal has had to be used and because of lack of maintenance during the war. When I inspected it, I was told that, although there were sug- gestions that the State Govern- ment should take it over, not one Minister, or member of the Gov- ernment, had ever visited the sta- tion. If Ministers, industrial employ^ ers, and...
