BANISH GLOOM. PLEA FOR AUSTRALIAN WINES. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool News — 19 August 1937
BANISH GLOOM. PLEA FOR AUSTRALIAN WINES. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Wine production in Australia, ac cording to the Commonwealth Year Book, has not increased as rapidly as the cli mate and soil warrant. One of the chief reasons for this, the Government Statis tician state?, is the smallness of Ute local markst. Again evidence is given of the importance which Australian cwstomeis have for our primary producéis. Prance, leading the world as a mn." producer, would be in a sorry plight if its local market were, on a population basis, no greater than the Australian one, In Prance the vineyards, and the manu facturing of 1,672,000,000 imperial gal lons of wine pw annum, give employ ment to a vast number of workmen. Among these are not merely vignerons and their laborers, but chemists, coopers, carpenters, vatmakers, carries, clerks and those in a score of other callings, jicluding railwaymen and sailors. Australian wines have been piaised by the great?st connoisseurs, and many of the alleged f...

HORSE FORM.! I By VOM ELLIS, Ihow the Crack Three-Year-Olds arc % ProjrrrK«in)f Cor thc Derbies. i The owners of Ajax must have laughed Bp their sleeves ew;ry time they saw any ehree-j ear-old winner hailed as a 'pos sible Derby candidate.' It seems that lome critics regard anything thre? years ibid which wins a race, or even runs a 'place, as a prospective Derby candidate. Thus we have seen in Sydney Gill Town, a recent Maiden winner, hailed as a cos sibility. and even St. Constant, which recently lias been beaten in maiden and novice company. Then came the biß rap-Up for Silenus because he won a third-rate three-year-a'.d handicap at, Rosehill on August 7. One wonders what they thought when they saw Ajax's superlative victory in the I Chatsworth Plate at eau field on Satur day with 9.4 on his back, at his first start of the current season. He won it i so well, settiiie his own pace most cf j i the way, and winning with a tremendous I lot in hand. Maurice McCarten could not sro to ...

Playing strongly out. he was cff the line and the ban caught Irvine, who endeavoured to duck too late. The ball hit the bag he was carrying and he lost the hole, which otherwise would have meant a 2 up lead. The...
