MONDAY'S RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 30 September 1916
MONDAY'S RACING. As usual, cycling events will be the feature of the Eight-Hours' sports on the Agricultural Ground on Monday. Riders t!iould be on the ground early, as the first race is listed for 11 o'clock. This meeting opens the track racing season, with both the League and the Cyclists' Union, and while the professional governing body will have several meetings under its auspices to follow, the Cyclists' Union will not sanction any further open racing while the war is on. The amateur season will, thertfore, both open and close its season on the one day. Monday's racing, providing the Show Ground track is anything like good, should be very interesting.

George Horder is virtual scratch man with 30yds in tbe mile and 50yds in the two miles, giving away starts up to 200yds in the former, and 350yds in the latter. He is r...

'I hid my first flght when I was 15 years of age,' said the old gladiator. 'I had three bare-knuckle fights with heavyweights when I was a kid, weighing less than 115 pounds. 'That's the school I learned in. To-day they get a purse that would equal my entire ring; earnings, and they have It handed to them in six or ten rounds of no-decision fighting. 'Jim Jeffries was the greatest fighter that ever lived. I say so because I fought him twice, and I trained him for that fight with Corbett Do you know why he lost ? Not age. Bah ! Age counts nothing. 'Some of his smart friends thought they would tune him up, and they used chloral on him, and it killed every chance he had. That's as true as I'm Bob Fitzsimmons. 'He was doped. You don'...

SMALLBORE NOTES. The delegates to the Miniature Rifle Union met at the N.R.A. rooms on Thursday to dis cuss the question of grade competitions for the ensuing season. Despite the difhculty of ob taining suitable riiies, the activities of the miniature clubs have continued to increase since the last matches were tired, and a little energetic organising work on the nart of the Union should result in improved entries this year, especially in the B Grade.

GOLF NOTES PERSONALS AND PLAY AMONG THE SYDNEY CLUBS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 30 September 1916
GOLF NOTES PERSONALS AND PLAY AMONG THE SYDNEY CLUBS j By TEE TEE. It Is gratifying to hear that Joe KIrkwood has more than exceeded the expectations of the Riversdale Golf Club, where he is now resident professional. Rounds of 73, 72, 72, in succes sion arc evidence that he has struck form at once. I ? i The first score has a further merit, in that it was done almost on arrival, when he was very tired. I am clad to hear that Kirliwood's prospects are very bright. He thorouchly de serves any success that may come his way. The Huie-Styles match in' the Critchley Parker Shield competition, has been ployed and won In an easy fashion by the first-named. Hule is always -steady, and, when all out, makes few mistakes. He has also an ideal tempera ment, which nothing disturbs. Though very short of practice he did a 79, which is only three strokes over bogey, and far too good for Styles, who was in receipt of only one stroke. My original tip stands — that ihc winner of this n-.atch would win...
