Athletes Get Funds Associations Will Have Chance To Develop Young Talent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
Athletes Get Funds Associations Will Have Chance To Develop Young Talent By JIM CARLTON Noiv that the "alarms and excur- sions" of publicity have ceased over the recent visits of oversea athletes Lloyd La Beach, Herb McKenley, and Fanny Blankers-Koen, an assessment of their contribution to athletics in this country can be made calmly. Their visits were financial successes. This means that the men's and women's associations have money available to back future visits from oversea athletes .and for the development of athletes in this country. There will be many suggestions on ways and means of expending this money for the development of our own athletes. I would like to see a fair proportion of it go towards the discovery and coaching of new athletic ability. In this regard, I would like to see a central laboratory set up under the direction of Professor Frank Cotton, where athletes and prospective athletes could be tested for their ability and suitability for various events.

DOWN THE FAIRWAYS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
¡ROWJV THE FAIRWAYS I BY PROSPER ELLIS Some of the lesser known clubs have young players J' among their ranks who are capable of excellent scoring. j ERNIE HARVARD, of Cabramatta, and Paul O'Brien, of Warringah, have shown good form lately, while Albert Bentley, the Asquith champion, under the eye of Don McDonald, Js a golfer of promise. If Don, who came from Car noustie, can teach him to play his irons as stylishly as he does himself, it will take Bentley a long way. * * + ^SPIRING players should play with better players and in open company, as it is only by this means that a certain maturity and composure is achieved, which will enable them äto climb to greater heights. With the exception of Ryde parramatta, the A grade clubs appear to have few junior mem- bers coming into prominence. This may be a result of the high cost of present-day golf, or lack of encouragement. Some clubs have rules govern- ing the play of juniors which appear somewhat harsh, and it may be well for committe...

CONJURING TRICK FOR YOUNG MAGICIANS No. 5 - hy "Merlin" T TERE is a trick which even the *?*? youngest magician can do HOW IT LOOKS: Four Aces, four Kings, four Queens, and four I Jacks are separ- ated from a pack I of cards and laid on the table in four small piles. Each pile con- tains an Ace, King. Queen and] Jack in that order. A member ot the audience then steps forward and is told to pick these four packs up in any order and "cut" them as often as he I wishes. | When he has cut them manv times (lifting cards from the top and placing them on the bottom of the pack), the magician then takes up the pack and deals four "hands" of four cards, face down, one on each pile at a time.

NATIONALISM RISING AGAIN IN JAPAN OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
NATIONALISM RISING AGAIN IN JAPAN OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT NEW YORK, Feb. 19.-Signs of a revival of Japanese nation- alism are multiplying after three | and a half , years of Allied > occupation, according to the Tokyo correspondent of the "New York Times." Prime cause of this is the lavish praise General MacArthur has bestowed on the Japanese, the correspondent adds. The revival of nationalism does not mean the Japanese want to embark on new aggression, he says, but is rather a return in Japanese thinking to the tradi- tional patterns which seemed to be wiped out after the surrender. Despite the Allied prediction that Shintoism would wither when deprived of the support of the Japanese Government, attendance at leading shrines over the past few months has trebled. Gifts totalling 1,500,000 yen were made to one shrine during a recent holiday season.
SPORT AN OFF BREAK BOWLER DOES A TOUGH JOB [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
SPORT AN OFF BREAK BOWLER DOES A TOUGH JOB By W. J. O'REILLY AS there are many more right ' hand batsmen than left- handers, it has become the general practice to name each - particular delivery fn bowling as it appears to a right hand bats- man. When we speak of an off, break therefore we mean an off break to a righthander. The same ball is. of course, a leg break to a lefthander. The off break spins round in the same direction as the hands of a clock as it leaves the fingers. Usual method of imparting this spin is to grip the ball with the lirst finger of the right hand over the seam. The thumb, directly opposite the tip of the first finger, forms the other extremity of the diameter of the ball. The second and third fingers rest against the ball more to strengthen the grip than to" help impart spin. The ball is delivered with a downward jerk which brings the thumb up to the position formerly held by the first finger. Try this out without holding the ball at all and you will find t...

Financial Panic Threatens In Argentina OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT.' NEW YORK, February 19.
