BIGGLES GETS HIS MEN CHAPTER 1 RAYMOND STATES THE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
HIGGLES GETS HIS MEN CHAPTER 1 RAYMOND STATES THE CASE. By CAPTAIN W. E. JOHNS FOR some time the only sound in the .drab head- quarters of the Special Air Ser- vice, New Scotland Yard, was the sombre ticking of a white faced clock, as it numbered the seconds with dreary monotony and dropped them into the past. Sergeant Bigglesworth, one time Squadron Leader Biggies worth, D.S.O.. R.A.F., better known as "Biggies," leaned back in a tilted chair reading the cur- rent issue of "Flight." Air Con- stable "Ginger" Hebblethwaite, hands in pockets, stared moodily out across the wet roofs which the window overlooked. Air Con- stables Algy Lacey and Bertie Lissie, in attitudes of bored in- difference, idly turned the pages of the daily papers. At length Ginger yawned aud- ibly, and turning, remarked: "You know, th»» place gets more and more like a dentist's waiting room." No one answered. Ginger tried another angle. Looking at his chief, he inquired: "Have you no idea at all of what's ' in th...

YOU CAN MAKE MANY THINGS FROM ODD SCRAPS OF LEATHER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
YOU CAN MAKE MANY THINGS FROM ODD SCRAPS OF LEATHER Boj or girl, if yo« like handwork, this leathercraft series should interest you. la her first article Kay Lewis tells you what tools you will want, what materials yon should boy, and how to use them. Next week she will tell you how to make a handy wallet. T EATHERWORK is a real -"-* he-man craft. It began in the days when cave dwellers found out how to tan the hide of animals they had slain and with thousands of years be- tween is still a most interesting craft. For larger articles such as book covers or handbags, big pieces of calfskin or the more economical skiver (lining leather) are good. They cart be bought at leather and grindery shops. Scrap leather from factories has good possi- bilities also. And it costs little sometimes nothing at all. As a rule scrap leather is no good for tooling-but try it by pressing it with your finger nail. If the mark remains, it will pro- bably tool quite well. Small, fine leather scraps can be t...
Defence Sets Poser For Court OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
Defence Sets Poser For Court » OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT. NEW YORK, January 22. If the Communist defendants in the conspiracy trial successfully challenge the New York jury system, 15,000 people convicted over the last 10 years will be able to challenge their convictions, lawyers think. Eleven leading Communists (12 were indicted, but one is ill) are charged with having conspired to overthrow the Government of the United States. *. Defence lawyers are trying to have the case thrown out of court on the ground that New York's method of selecting jurors is "illegal, discriminatory, and un- constitutional." They claim the method of selection excludes Negroes, Jews, women, and poor people. This would illegally prejudice their trial. LEGAL QUERY If the court upholds the defence point, lawyers are asking what will happen to the people who have been convicted and fined or imprisoned under a system found to be illegal. Argument on the legal point about juries looks like holding up the Communis...
Rabbits In Streets Of Canberra [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
Rabbits In Streets Of Canberra CANBERRA, Saturday. -Rabbits have invaded the national capital. Thev have always been preva lent in the Australian Capital Territory, but they have become so daring this summer that? they are sometimes seen in the streets of Canberra and on the lawn of the Hotel Canberra. The Department of the'Interior, describes the position as "more serious than for many years." 'It is so concerned by the rabbit in- vasion that it has gangs of men digging out, trapping, and poison- ing rabbits, and has additional rangers in what are officially described as "danger areas." Officers of the department said to-day the rangers were respon- sible for patrol areas and, with packs of dogs, were destroying thousands of rabbits on roads, stock routes, reserves, and un leased Commonwealth lands. See: Cartoon, page 2; Aus- tralia's "Grey Plague," page 4; Pictures, page 5.

YOUNG STAR SCORES IN DICKENS' STORY Anthony Newley, young English Sim star, has won applause for his brilliant acting as the Artful Dodger in the film, "Oliver Twist." "Oliver Twist" will begin its run at a Sydney theatre within the next few weeks. I T>ESPITE his success, *-* Newley himself is just a normal English boy. He is' an amateur photographer, ^ likes sketching and listening to music, especially Spike Jones. Educated at Mandeville Secon- dary School for Boys, London, young Anthony was evacuated during the flying bomb period and spent a happy year in Lanca- shire with two other young evacuees. At 14, he left school and went to work in an insurance office. Later he became a copy boy on Fleet Street, working in the ad- vertising department of a London paper. One day he saw an Italia Conti advertisement for boy actors. ("Italia Conti" is a famous Eng- lish school where young people are taught to act.) He wrote immediately, and his letter was so polite that he won an interview...

Swab Case Witness A material witness in the^Dalston swab analysis inquiry due for- hearing to-morrow has not yet returned to Sydney. He is a stable hand at C.

Dalston was swabbed after he had finished second to Opening in the Highweight Handicap al Randwick on January 1. Subsequently the stewards told Cullen that the analysis had shown positive results. After a preliminary inquiry, the hearing was adjourned.

£11'17'6 17 JEWELLED FIFTH SECOND TIMING Only a walch entirely impoi ted-case ami movement could give such an air of fine craftsmanship. Sportsmen and others will wonder that such slim elegance could house such line precision that enables a flashing sweep second hand to flicker-off divisions of time as nunute as a fifth of a second. But this 17 jewelled movement is protected by a world-famous "lnca-Bloc" anti-stress de-, vice that cushions nil jars and shocks.

CONDUCTOR OUT OF CONTROL [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
CONDUCTOR OUT OF CONTROL Conductor raced out of control in the Lord Mayor's Cup at Rosehill yesterday. His rider, F. Williams, had to steer him with one rein. Soon after the start Conduc-| tor's rein broke away from the bit on the off side. It was found after the, race that the tongue of the buckle had pulled out, releasing the rein. The stewards, after inquiry, found that Conductor's trainer, J. W. Cook, had been negligent in not properly examining the teins when Conductor was sad- dled. They fined him £10, and told him that repetition of the negli- gence would lead to more drastic action. Little Trouble | Miraculously. Conductor did not cause much interference un- til he turned into the straight. Then he veered about and caused bad interference to Ava- lanche, whose chance of winning, however, was negligible at- the time. Racing men praised Williams for his horsemanship on Conduc- tor. Williams said that when the rein gave way he could do noth- ing but let Conductor have his own w...
