THE WEEK IN POLITICS Long Shadow Of Mrs. Annie By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
I THE. WEEK IN POLITICS ] Long Shadow Of Mrs. Annie O'Keefe By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT A LONE Ambonese woman, of whom nQbody but the ever vigilant Mr. Calwell had heard , a month ago, was last week's political storm-centre in Canberra. T TPON her has focussed a trial of strength between two senior Ministers of the Crown; her case took pre- cedence in the National Parliament over all other business. To the Minister for Immigra- tion, Mr. Arthur Calwell, Mrs. Annie O'Keefe appears to symbol- ise the teeming hordes of Asia, knocking ever more insistently on Australia's door; to the Minister for External Affairs, Dr. Herbert Evatt, her threatened deportation seems a body blow to his "Good Neighbour" policy with the lusty new nations of the East. There has for long been strong rivalry and little love lost between Mr. Calwell and Dr. Evatt. Both very ambitious men, both very able men, they are potential contenders for the leadership of the Federal Labour Party should Mr. Chifley decide...

UMPIRES HOOTED AT S.C.G. FOR PLAY HALT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
UMPIRES HOOTED AT S.C.G. FOR PLAY HALT By Tom Goodman The small crowd at the Sydney Cricket Ground yesterday demon- strated noisily when the umpires adjourned play because of poor light during the N.S.W. last wicket part- &nbsp; nership against South Australia. There were prolonged hoots and jeers when play was resumed, after what seemed an unreasonably long delay. N.S.W., thanks to Morris (110), de Courcey (46), and Moroney (45), totalled 261, and thus secured a first-innings lead of 75 runs. &nbsp; &nbsp;

A few couples stopped dancing when the police entered the three I places. When the police left, I the dancing w...
THIS WIDE WORLD British Cars Invade U.S. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
F*TBTS WIDE WOULD . British Cars Invade U.S. * flEW YORK. - In the United States - the home of the mass-produced motor vehicle - Britain last year sold 24,475 cars. This year she hopes to sell 40,000. This British invasion is one of the most significant factors in the tremendous post-war car boom in the United States. It is certain .to'receive more attention as the boom slackens. The small car, which the British and Continental manufacturers make so well, was not popular in America before the war; but there are signs that it has won a place for itself in American post- war economy, and that it may not be easy to dislodge. Most Americans still like their cars big, shiny, and powerful. Last year more than four million cars of that type were made-and sold as soon as they were made. But as the buying rush eases, , buyers are becoming increasingly aware of the advantages of a car which is cheap to run, nimble, yet small enough to park any- where. So far, selling emphasis has been placed ...

Mr. Onus, a Victorian shipping clerk and the League's Victorian president, said yesterday: "We have trusted the whites to rcpre: sent us, and they have let us down. We now «want to rep- resent ourselves." Picture shows Mr. Onus discussing election policy with Aboriginal leaders. They are from left: N.S.W. secretary of the Australian Aborigine League, Mr. Her- bert S.

Notes On The Beat [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
Notes On The Beat JEAN CAMPBELL, Australian coloratura soprano, who was &nbsp; heard in Sydney as Rosina in "The Barber of Seville," is likely to take over all of Rina Mariosa's roles during the Italian company's New Zealand tour. Mariosa, who became Mrs. Manno Wolff Fer- rari early in the company's Mel- bourne season, is dedicating 1949 more to the stork than to the nightingale. Sydney dramatic soprano, Eleanor Houston, who showed JEAN CAMPBELL [sketch portrait] exceptional promise in her few appearances in "Aida" in Aus- tralia, will probably be Santuzza in the New Zealand productions of "Cavalleria Rusticana," and she may be the relieving Tosca. PUCCINI took all the placings in the opera "stakes. Top opera in the list for the Sydney season was Madame Butterfly (14 per- formances), followed by La Boheme (13), Tosca and Rigoletto (nine each), Aida (eight), Manon (seven), Barber of Seville (six), Turandot, Faust, and Carmen (five each), Cavalleria and Pag- liacci (four), Tro...

U.S. Worried By State Of Australian Defences EXPERTS ASKED FOR FULL REPORT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
U.S. Worried By State Of Australian Defences EXPERTS ASKED FOR FULL REPORT The United States Government is seriously concerned about Australia's lack of defences, it was learned from authoritative sources last night. Washington has asked U.S. Navy, Army and Air Force attaches in Australia for a full report on all aspects of Australia's defence preparations. Two considerations, it was stated, have inspired this close American interest in Australia's ability to defend herself. They are: . Communist successes in China have forced U.S. Service chiefs to make a drastic reassessment of defence strategy in the Pacific. . Some American defence chiefs oppose tying up stronger U.S. forces in the Pacific and urge that Australia and New Zealand should accept greater responsibilities. Hie U.S. Secretary of the Army, Mr. Kenneth Royall, supports this view.
"DEFENCELESS FOR YEARS" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
"DEFENCELESS FOR YEARS" Washington, it is said, feels that it will be a dan- gerously long time before Australia will be equipped to play an adequate part in Pacific defence strategy. American concern centres on these five main points: . Even if the Commonwealth defence programme is fully car- ried out, Australia will be virtu- ally defenceless for the next four or five years at least. . Australian naval strength is grossly inadequate. . Australia, therefore, is not in a position to make effective use of the strategically important Manus island base (in the Admir- alty Islands just north of New Guinea). . The Royal Australian Air Force would be completely in- effective as a striking force in an emergency. . Australia has no army cap- able of defending its shores, much less contributing an expeditionary force or even island garrisons. LACK OF REALISM It is felt in America that the Australian Government was guilty of lack of realism in refusing after the war, to allow the U.S.A. to co...
SEEING THE TREE AND MISSING THE WOOD [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
SEEING THE TREE AND MISSING THE WOOD SYDNEY is full of sound and fury over the proposed re- &nbsp; moval of the memorial-screening fig tree in Hyde Park. Should it go? Should it stay? Should the the axe be laid to its root, or should transplantation be adopted as an expensive compromise? There are experts-, and inex perts a-plenty to answer these questions. A wider inquiry may be posed: Does public interest in the fate of the fig tree signify an awakening of the dormant civic conscience of this neglected metropolis? It would be agreeable to think so. Inability to see the wood for the trees is a proverbial predica- ment. We should not let concen- tration on the Hyde Park fig blind us to the forest of real problems demanding attention in Sydney. For its size and importance few cities are so backward in the amenities of civilised living as ours, or so strewn with missed opportunities. Nature showered gifts on what has become, in guide-book phraseology, the second white city of ...
What Is Wrong With Australia?.....DR. C. E. W. BEAN Has An Answer Prosperity Goes To Our Heads We Need Deeper Sense Of Our Responsibilities And A Star To Steer By [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
What Is Wrong With Australia ? DR. C. E. W. BEAN Has An Answer Prosperity Goes To Our Heads We Need Deeper Sense Of Our Responsibilities And A Star To Steer By NEARLY everyone who asks "What is wrong with Australia?" means: "Why don't we seize the vanishing opportunity to make this a comfortable country as well as a free one? Why don't we increase real wages by pro- ducing more, instead of working less and 'kidding' ourselves with inflated wages?" Part of my answer is: "because we always lose our heads in boom times"; and the other part: "because the depres- sion of 1929-34 shook men's confidence so deeply, they now seek their own remedy and only experience will tell them if its works." We're getting that experience, and the greatest optimist will not say that all is right with Australia. Perhaps Australians need a crisis before they tumble to &nbsp; themselves. In that case we must take what is coming and, when it is too late, blame our stupidity. For it is stupidity, and n...
Candid Comment... By ONLOOKER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
(Candid Comment . . . By ONLOOKER Mr. CALWELL says this writer &nbsp; "misled" Mrs. O'Keefe re- &nbsp; garding her status under the Nationality and Citizenship Act; by omitting to quote a" relevant part of the Act. That is what he thinks. What the Act grants to this woman with one hand it may pur- port to take away with the other, but its true interpretation will be- come known if she tests her rights in the High Court. The Government's legal advisers would not be too happy about the prospects of getting a deportation order sanctioned in that quarter. Anyhow, the real issue is a prac- tical one. Is it worthwhile to deepen the animosity to "White Australia" in Asia by expelling, with her child- ren, the widow of an Indonesian war hero now married to an Australian citizen? These heartless, undiscriminating expulsions on colour grounds are be- ing chalked up against us in the East. Our children may have to foot the bill, if it is not presented sooner. Does Marriage Matt...
PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF ARRESTS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF ARRESTS The Bulgarian Legation in London said yesterday that it had previous knowledge that Church leaders, would be arrested because it had been "in the air" for some time. In an interview last night, &nbsp; Michael Padev, an exiled Bul- garian, and a close friend of the late Nicola Petkov-the Bulgar- ian Opposition Leader who was executed in August-said: "The Bulgarian Protestant Church has been beheaded at one stroke." "The Judges of the Church- men will be the same three Com- munist functionaries who sent to the gallows Bulgaria's most prominent and popular political leader (Petkov) last September. SAME "GUILT" "This is appropriate, for the 'guilt' of the 15 men of the Church is the same as Petkov's -refusal to submit to Communist dictation, to Communist threats, and to Communist terror tactics. "The ridiculous Communist charges in the published indict- ment, such as spying, black market activities, and currency irregularities, are the usual Com- munis...
PROTESTS IN U.S. STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
PROTESTS IN US. STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. I NEW YORK, Feb. 12.-The Bulgarian arrests, following so closely on the trial of Cardinal Mindszenty, have, hardened still further opinion"' in America against the Soviet. The State Department to-day issued a statement condemning the arrests. The statement said: "The similarity between the fan- tastic accusations against these clergymen in Bulgaria and those against Cardinal' Mindszenty in Hungary strikingly emphasises the concerted nature of this continu- ing assault on religious liberties in Eastern Europe." The United States to-day ordered the First Secretary of the Hungarian Legation in Washing- ton, Mr. John Florian, to leave as soon as, possible. At Vatican City to-day Pope Pius issued an apostolic exhorta- tion to the world's Catholic clergy for prayers to expiate what he called "the crime of the enemies of God." He authorised clergy to cele- brate two masses for this purpose on Passion Sunday-an unprece- dented steps in the hist...
O'KEEFES TO GO TO COURT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
O'KEEFES TO GO TO COURT MELBOURNE, Saturday.-Mr. John O'Keefe said to-night that any move by the Minister for Immigration, Mr. Calwell, to de port his Indonesian wife, Mrs. Annie O'Keefe, and her children would be challenged in court. Mr. O'Keefe said that Mr. Trevor Rapke, a Melbourne bar- rister, had been retained to fight the case, but would not reveal the line of action contemplated. Mr. Calwell denied to-day that he had extended the time limit for Mrs. Annie O'Keefe and her Indonesian children to leave Aus- tralia. Mr. Calwell said that unless they left willingly by the end of February a deportation order would be issued.
