TOOK SNAKE INTO HOTEL BAR Anzac Day Drinkers Scatter At Parkes [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 11 May 1951

TOOK SNAKE IKTO HOTEL BAR Aazac Day Drinkers Scatter At takes Toasting and conversa tion was at its height on Anzac Day in the saloon bar of the Royal Hotel at Parkes. Suddenly there appeared through the doorway of the bar the head of a middle aged man with a carpet snake strung around his neck. Immediately there was a heavy sound of glasses being dropped, followed by 'piercing screams' and a large cloud of dust. AH that remained in the bar a second later was the middle aged man with the snake still curled around his neck and a .worried look upon his face. Scrambling across the bar was the figure of a well known Parkes football player whom for reputation's sake we shall leave anonymous. Gradually heads re-appeared and owners edged back to the bar — leaving quite a space be tween the snakeman. However, when be left- a little later there was a sigh of relief, and a doubling up of or ders.

IFROGMORE i. TOPICS .f From Our Correspondent ! ? SHIRE GRADERS AT WORK ON FROGMORE ROAD Heavy and light road grad ers have been busy in and near Frogmore over the last week. Quite a bit of filling has been done and the cor- . rugations along the road have been flattened, thus giving quite a fair surface for cars. Road repairs have been long needed and awaited, but at last it appears that a good job is being done. SCHOOLGROUND GRADED Shire President, Cr. A. G. Gorham, very kindly directed the large grader unit to work at the school. In a very short time a fair sized piece of land in the school grounds was effectively levelled. This ground will now give room for the establishment of a soft ball diamond and other sport ing facilities, very much in need since the tennis court has been in use. SPEED LIMIT SIGNS Whilst at the courts, attention was drawn to. the position of the 30 m.p.h. speed limit signs. They are opposite the courts, whereas it was felt that they should be placed, some ...
