GIRAFFE NOW THREE FEET TALLER An Indian, antelope, two Mnnljacs and an African Eland were born at Taronga Park Zoo last mont Ii. Tlie baby giraffe, born six months ago, has grown three feet taller and is very strong. 'T'HE giraffe born at Taronga -*. Park Zoo on August 1 last year is now nine feet six inches high. Her mother is almost. 16 feet, and her father towers to a -height of 18 feet. At present the little-giraffe has no official name, but Mr. Marie Ferry, her keeper, calls her "Mitzi." ~ Mr. H. B. Brown, secretary of - the Taronga Zoological Park Trust, said last week that a com ' -petition might be held when the .giraffe was a year old to decide' her name. Mighty still feeds her baby, but Mitzi is fast developing a taste for lucerne-hay,'and a mixture of boiled barley, crushed oats, and wheat hearts. She eats this "dish" twice each day.

Australia Asks Russia About Slave Camps [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Australia Àsks Russia About Slave Camps NEW YORK, Feb. 19 (A.A.P.).-Mr. John Plim- soll (Australia) yesterday demanded a full answer by the Soviet to charges that slave - labour camps existed in Russia. , The American Federation of Labour made the charges in docu- mentary evidence it put before the UNO Economic and Social Coun- cil on Tuesday. Mr. Plimsoll, who spoke in the council yesterday, commented on a speech in which Mr. Julius Katz Suchy (Poland) defended Soviet labour camps, as "cor- rective" camps, compared with "slave labour as applied to the population in colonies or to a class as a whole." Mr. Kata Suchy had claimed that forced labour existed in . The United States, "where the use of injunctions forces workers to work;" . South Africa, "where wages paid to native workers are so low that they keep them in perpetual debt;" . Tanganyika, "where there are low wages, harsh punishment, and a complete lack of collective bargaining." Mr. Plimsoll said in reply that the original ...

NEED FOR HIGHER EXPORT RATE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

NEED FOR HIGHER EXPORT RATE The Bradford Wool Export Group sent its secretary, Mr. D. G. Price, to Japan by air yesterday.. He will join Mr. D. C. Palfreyman, who is in Hong Kong representing Bri- tain's wool textile delegation. They will try to see General MacArthur, and may link up with the British and American trade mission, which will leave the United States for Japan later this month. An official of the Wool Export Group said yesterday that the tex- tile trade believed Japan should be allowed to rehabilitate her wool-using industry to some extent, but that export prices should be raised to conform with I those of other exporting nations. British trade circles see Japan's recent purchases of Australian wool as further cause for alarm because they advanced the price of raw wool at the expense of the English and European wool using industries. Under the sterling area trade agreement signed in November Japan may buy ¿£stg.4,200,000 worth of Australian wool up to June. But it can bu...

JAPAN CUTTING PRICES OF WOOL, SILK British Industry Will Ask U.S. To Stop Unfair Trade From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

JAPAN CUTTING PRICES OF WOOL SILK British Industry Will Ask ILS. To Stop Unfair Trade From Our Staff Correspondent LONDON, February 19.-The British wool industry, alarmed by Japanese price-cutting, is sending representatives to Tokyo to ask the American authorities to stop unfair Japanese competition. Textile authorities say the Japanese are selling woollens at 8/ to 10/ a yard cheaper than the English product. Japanese silk export prices are about one-third the British prices. British trade experts say that the mission may be difficult because, while Britain wants to keep Japan in check, America wants to expand Japan's export trade to a minimum of £stg55 million a year.

JOLT TO BOWLS PREMIER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

JOLT TO BOWLS PREMIER Epping yesterday miss- ed by four points beating . the State Premier Bowls Club, Burwood. With two fours finished, the result of the match was in doubt. Then Ossie Sidwell's four scored a six-all draw. Charlie Adcock's four main- tained its unbeaten record in seven games. Burwood's main sectional rival, Ryde, was unexpectedly beaten by Parramatta at Ryde. Burwood now is outright leader in that section. Until yesterday Ryde had not lost a match in any of its fours. Section one seems secure for Campsie. In this section, Mar- rickville did well to beat St. George by a narrow margin. North Sydney improved its hold over section three, and with Warringah still on the decline, only has Chatswood to contend with in postponed round six. Section four probably is most in doubt. City-up 72 on Rose Bay overhauled Bondi's margin of points. If neither City nor Bondi loses again, marginal points will decide the issue. Bondi has yet 'to play two matches, compared with City's on...

Candid Comment... By ONLOOKER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

(Candid (Comment . . . By ONLOOKER "This other Eden, demi Paradise ..." LISTENING to Anthony Edenes admirable address at the combined organisations' luncheon on Friday, I was stirred most by his references to Britain's enduring strength and influence in the world. Eden himself, with his fine pre- sence, confident bearing, and reson- ant speech, is a first rate adver- tisement for his country wherever he goes. The theory that Britain's day is done, that she should be content to become an interesting museum piece, a resort for ' tourists from the Dominions and America, dates back half a century or more. It was beginning to be current even when Emerson visited the country and spoke his famous tri- bute to a Britain "not dispirited, not weak, .... not decrepit in her old age, but- young, and still daring to believe in her powers of endurance and expansion." Need any of us have a lesser vision of Britain to-day? She has survived two fearful wars in this generation, bleeding and impover- ...
