RUGBY LEAGUE [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 7 October 1916
1 RUGBY LEAGUE Mr. R. A. Boldc'n writes from Hurlstonc Park (1-10-16) to the editor of The Arrow: 'It was with a great deal of interest I read of the doings of my old club Easts in your paper la-it Saturday, and was very much surprised to see my name figuring amongst the fallen. I have ' -lost two younger brothers at Gallipbli, arid no doubt my name has b:cn confused with one of theirs. My fnitials are L.A. and my brothers' C.A. and H.S. C.A. (Curly) was ,wcll known amongst Junior cricketers of Eastern Suburbs and Centennial Park Associations, which he represented as wicketkeepcr. H.S. (also called Blue) was a member of Randwick Football Club, and played second grade. It is nearly two years since I got married and left the dis trict, and my absence from the football field probably accounts for the misunderstanding.' The article referred to was written by a mem ber of the' Eastern Suburbs Club. We are very pleased to able to state that the well-known player is not among the fallen. T...

SOCCER FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 7 October 1916
SOCCER FOOTBALL If to-day's Sunlight Cup final between Bal main ' and Balmain Fernleigh, at the Sports Ground, reaches finality, the curtain will drop for the season. The pair will put up a game worthy of the final in every particular. The perambulations of Fernleigh through the Second League, and the Sunlight Cup has been marked with exhibitions that have Impressed others be sides myself, for indeed the team is a fine one. In the Second League competition they only suffered one reverse (Kiaora 3-1), besides play ing drawn games with Annandale, Kiaora (second round), and Pyrmont. Incidentally, it might be mentioned that during the progress of the League, Fernleigh defeated their op. poneats of to-day on both occasions they met, 5-1 and i-l.

Tis good to think that from such woe In England — as has stricken France— 'Tis ours to save our land and kin; That is the joy we hear within. The only thought at which I quail. While smoke of battle dims the blue, The thought that makes my cheek turn pals Is that long agony for you — Suspense and fear, and visions red, Drear days and haunted nights of dread. I know, who plays the soldier's part. Dear folks of mine across the foam. The strain...
WHEN A STRIKE IS ON IN NEW YORK. (Or in Sydney Town). [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 7 October 1916
WHEN A STRIKE IS ON IN NEW YORK. (Or in Sydney Town), ' At the depot and the f.rry The crowds are not so merry; : They've a look of apprehension and are feeling mighty mean; * ; They can see their way to Sunday, But are doubtful if on Monday There'll be a chance of riding on the eight fifteen. If the railways stop, If the tramcars stop. Most of them must hike it. Some of them will bike it. But none of them will like it If the railways stop. Some the 'bus will board it; While those who can afford it Will travel in a touring car or in a limousine,. ? But there'll be no fun commuting When the engine ceases tooting And no ferry boats are running as the eight fifteen. But we won't shut shop If the railways stop; We can sleep down in the city, Where the girls are 'ust as pretty; So it m::y not be a pity If the railways stop.

NEW YORK SCRIBE MIXED "Big English Dave Smith" : Dave Unknown [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 7 October 1916
NEW YORK SCRIBE MIXED ' Big English Dave Smith' : Dave Unknown It never rains but it pours, also- misfortunes rarely come singly. Atop of his reverses and mishaps generally lately comes the subjoined reflection upon Dave Smith as a fighter by a man who was evidently unable to distinguish him from that other member of the very numerous Smith family, Dick of England. But luckily Dave has a champion where he, .per haps, least expected to find one. The following slab has been lifted from the American Boxing Gazette : 'Very often indeed we find very glaring errors made by some of the boxing scribes in the daily newspapers, which is not our business to cor rect. But here is one for example, written by Left Jab, in the New York Evening Mail, which we consider is rather unfair. It reads as follows : 'They are showering Les Darcy with additional fight honors in Australia. By knocking out a dub named Dave Smith, the promoters and fans alike in the Antipodes have proclaimed Darcy the light-hea...
Illumined by Spiritual Light [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 7 October 1916
Illumined by Spiritual Light A shout went up when the colonel entered, and it was easy to see how they loved this man — this tall, lame man whose strong, hand some face and brown, beautiful eyes were il lumined by some spiritual light which ex pressed a great sweetness and nobility of soul. He spoke their language perfectly, and behaved to them as a father to his children, who had come to sit among them and see them play. We sat on a bench in the centre of all these men, who were behind us on a dais and around us in a half-circle, seated with their backs to the cellar walls. A young man with a face as Handsome as Othello's — any Desdemona might listen to uis tale— was beating a hollow drum with a queer, quick rhythm, and an older man, bearded and grizzled, puffed out his cheeks as he played a flute which gave out a weird Oriental melody of melancholy half tones. Then one of the Arab soldiers stepped forward, and, while he danced like an East ern woman, with a scarf in his hand, the ...
