Letter from Gladstone [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 11 March 1949

Letter from Gladstone I I With no pretensions to literary style, the following letter nevertheless is a fine piece of "lay" reporting, covering the recent cyclone which devastated Gladstone and North Coast up to Bockhampton. It is written by Les Hockings, a Gladstone railway worker, to his bnother,     Mr. H. R. ("Lew") Hockings, of Arthur Street, who has made it available for publication. It gives a vivid picture of a night of terror in the   home of a typical suburban resident, and an overall impression of the terrific damage inflicted on the blitzed town. Through it, too, rings the note <at sturdy AustraUanistQ—the determination to rebuild shat tered homes and ruined gardens—which helped our pioneer ancestors to conquer this vast continent, and will help us, if maintained, to develop it to the full heights which its nr.tural resources permit. We have pub lished the letter, written by candl-.light in a blacked-out town, is full, wi...

PEITIFORD CRICKETER OF THE YEAR [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 18 March 1949

PEITIFORD CRICKETER OF THE YEAR (By ''Leg Break") Because one cricket scoring book is unavailable, I have not been able to give you a true tally of the local averages for the current season that has just been completed. However, In my estimation, the following play ers deserve special mention: LES PETTIFORD <Roma, Capt): The bowler who bowls ."sloppy slow stuff." but -who beats batsman, both good and indifferent. Besides his great bowling feats this season,' he has also done particularly well with" Ithe bat. He showed great foiW'Wlth the bat. when 'his team was up against It and Wiled the Rep' .team out of many difficulties. ..L. CUNNINGHAM: No doubt heads the batting- honours this year. Lenhada' lean period wlth the Rep. team, but with his line fast ^bowling and sure fielding he rates very high. . MAYNE GIBSON whom I consider j the best bat in the association, did not play very much cricket this sea son. He took some' very good wlo fcets In Rep. matches and- his 93 again...

BOWLERS ANNUAL MEET ON MONDAY [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 18 March 1949

BOWLERS ANNUAL MEET ON MONDAY Important event for local bowl ers next week Is the annual meet ing of the club, to be held on the Club House on Monday night. Welfare of the club for the ensuing year will be in the hands of officers elected on that occasion. Boeial games were ployed last Satur day and Sunday in summery conditions, but also with an air of friendly in tensity and keen sporting rivalry. Some who were not able to be pre sent for the full afternoon came along and sat in tUe shade to watch the play. Exchanged at intervals was' a deal of badinage, harmless and light hearted. A prominent skip was heard to de mand that "swabs" be taken. Whether certain bowls were punning an erratic course to the kitty or whe ther the arm behind them was too forceful, we are not aware. Besult of that particular game was eloser than might have been expected in its earlier stages. Words <of wisdom for the week:— A fatalist (at bowls)' is he who "doesn't think he can do it." The cptonil...

The Western Star-- Editorial FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1949. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 18 March 1949

Wfyt MfBtrtu $far -- (»';fritaial FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1949. ? J^iECORD attendance at the Wednesday Progress Association is a matter v the citizens of the town and district. Too often in the past, not only here.i liut throughout Australia, have move-, incuts such as this, designed to give ill-' ilividual citizens the uppurtunitv of shouldering civie responsibility, ir.l lapsed (iirough lack of public support.' The attendance, if nothing else, is a , striking demonstration of the growing ( dissatisfaction of the people of the : district with the lack of amenities, publk' utilities, and industries for so . long associated with life ill the west. Representatives in the civic, State and Federal legislatures would be well advised to draw the obvious conclusions. There is food for thought, too, in these days in which tlic traditional overt liberties have been extinguished in large sections of the globe, and face the threat of extinction ill other sections, in the fact that a group of citizen...
