Climbing Everest: What the Present Expedition has to Achieve [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

Climbing Everest: What the Present Expedition has to Achieve II cable from Colonel George Younghusband, of the Royal Geographical Society, on November 7, stated that a point had been reached 24,000 ft high on one of the buttress ridges of Mount Everest, whence the way to the top is reasonably practicable. He added: "We now have to find six men who, when exhausted by the Increasing rarity of the atmosphere, can stand the terrific blizzards and cold on those crucial two miles of knife-edge ridges. May and June are the best months for climbing. In addition, the expedition has surveyed 13,000 square miles of unknown country, a remarkable enough feat in itself when it Is remembered that the famous peak has never previously beon even closely approached by any European. The nearest approach hitherto recorded by a European was by Major Noel, who got within 46 miles of the mountain In 1913, while two native surveyors under the Indian Government got some twenty miles closer.

OUR WRITING. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

OUR WRITING. HOW IT TELLS A TALE. (By G.) Our character is the sum total of our thoughts, words, and deeds. Po such a personal thing as our writing betrays much to an observant mind. In reading character this way, we obtain far more satisfactory results from studying an educated hand, ac education develops the individual. Another point to notice is, that the specimen of writing most characteristic of the writer should be that written without conscious effort. The first thing worth noting ie the elope, which, if regularly a little to the right, shows a normal, energetic person. Very upright or very eloping writing indicated an obstinate dislike to acting on advice, the latter type taking the form of headstrong stubbornness. A regular, decided backhand always ■betrays one. who perhaps clever enough, has some pet prejudice, which further acquaintance reveals. A well-known educationist once remarked that people who purposely adopted a backhand for their definite caligraphy, were lacking...

QUEER IDEA OF FUN. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

QUEER IDEA OF FUN. JOKES THAT INVOLVE CRUELTY. Amid excitement and clanging of bells a fire engine came dashing into my 'street. But no forked tongues of flame or clouds of smoke revealed a conflagration. There was none. It was a false alarm —the merry jest of one of those practical jokers who play tlie joke on the London Fire Brigade several times every day. For the information of these mad wags, however, it is worth while to mention that one who was caught was fined £10 for his little lark, writes "O" in the "Daily Sketch." Another funny fellow was fined £3 for dropping a lighted match into a pillar-ibox. And this type of amusement is 60 popular that we read frequently of the contents of pillar-boxes being destroyed or partially destroyed by lighted matches inserted in the slot. A rich joke lately perpetrated was to throw a sack soaked in paraffin over a man's head and to set light to it. When he succeeded in freeing himself his ...

GOLF. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

GOLF. EXPERIENCES OF A VICTIM. (By "TWO-UP.") Golf is a game at which you try to send a small ball into little holes with Implements very ill-adapted for the purpose. Xow from one aspect—and golf has a score —I quite ajrree with that definition. Kut golf is more than a game—it is at various times, and on occasion simultaneously, an obsession, a disease, an insidious malady extremely contagious, a. Fata Morgana, a lielle Darue Sans Merci —ay, and one awful afternoon I came back to the clubhouse and fervently alleged that golf, as I had experienced it, is a damned Scotch nightmare ! Golf is played on links —and that very word trips you up at the start. Links is a singular noun, though the ignorant Sassenach, plus 2 man notwithstanding, makes it plural. Next time you are at the clubhouse, preferably when the tearoom is full, speak quite distinctly and say ''The links is in good order," and keep to the singular, and other players will begin to rega...

OCEAN MYSTERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

OCEAN MYSTERIES. REMARKABLE INSTANCES. A short time ago a trading schooner was picked up in the mid-Pacific, sound and intact, drifting before the trade wind, without a single soul on board, and her boat and whaler unlaunched. Everything was in order in her. A copy of an Australian paper of many months back was lying on the table of her deck house, with a few spots of dried blood on it. The fate of her crew was not to be explained. Ocean mysteries of this nature are not so rare as might be imagined. One of the most remarkable was reported some years ago from the West Indies. j A Dutch liner bound for Curacoa fell in with a tramp steamer, which was plainly not under control, and without any crew. On the Hollanders boarding her, the only living thing encountered was a great retriever, that seemed at first to be nigh mad with fright, but calmed down at the sound of human voices and eight of friendly faces. Steam was yet in her boilers, though shut off from the engines; in the galley we...

GARDENS OF KASHMIR. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

GARDENS OF KASHMIR. WONDERLANDS OF BEAUTY. A PARADISE ON EARTH. Gardens! Gardens! Who knows what a garden is till he has eeen the gardens of Kashmir, asks Major A. W. Howletfc in the "Manchester Guardian?" The peasants, the boatmen on the lake, tie townsmen who come out from Srinagar of a. Sunday to picnic—though why on a Sunday I know not —tell you they were made by Akbar. True it is they were by the Moghuls (those wonderful princes who seemed to live three hundred years before their time), or, in one case at least, by their Grand Viziers, bufe Akbar was not solely responsible. However, he eeems to hold in Kashmir the place in popular fancy that Alfred and Queen Elizabeth do in England, and everything that is historically noteworth is credited to him. In any case, to have made these gardens is a thing to be proud of. There are six or 6evea of them about in Kashmir, and I have seen two of them. The one I have in mind, no doubt the best known, is the Shalima...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

CRICKET. SECOND GRADE." The first series of matches in the two sections of the second grade came to a conclusion last Saturday afternoon and the Btate of the games in the A eection caw very little change beyond adding the extra point. At Re-nruera Grafton failed badly against University, who. by the way, were ready to answer a call to senior ranks when the question of increasing the number of senior teams came under review. However, tlhey w£re quite |»ontented to mate another effort to secure the second grade premiership. On the first day in reply to GraftonVs meagre 'total of 67 they put up the substantial score of 310 thanks to Wylie 107, Speight S4, and FiiwcoH 50, at the expense of the Grafton bowlers. When the game resumed, the vanquished, although at the wickets for sometime, were dismissed for 125, Rankin (32) getting a quarter of the runs by patient batting. FaWcett'fl (two for five) slows were responsible for the last two wickets. Waddingliam wound up with thre...

AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

AQUATICS. ■By SPEEDWELL") Yachtsmen were treated to very boisterous weather for the official opening of tho season last Saturday, but in spite of adverse wind and weather and tlic fact that the majority of our large keel yachts were not able to take part, the white wings made a brave show and one well worthy of the occasion. While tlie larger classes lacked numbers, this was more than compensated by the, great interest, evinced in the doings of the Jcllicbe class and the other small boat events which comprised fully 00 per cent of the total entries. The race between Desert Gold, Betty, Idler, and other older boats of this "class and the five new ones was expected to be good, and it was. No less than fifteen entries were received, and in spite of the hard breeze they all started, and with two exceptions all completed the course. The start was a very pretty one, the whole fifteen getting away in less than one minute from the fall of the. flag, fully half of t...

LAWN TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 19 November 1921

LAWN TENNIS. With the windy and unpleasant conditions prevailing during the week, players were fully anticipating a fine week-end, but the fates proved unkind, with the result that there were only meagro attendances at most of the courts. The Parnell club spent a considerable amount of money and considerable labour on their courts'during the winter, with the result that the seven courts which ihey now have arc plnying particularly well this season. This club is looking ahead, and have obtained a further ten years' lease of the present property, and next year the committee hope to increase their'number of courts, and. if possible, their pavilion accommodation. As far as I can hear, very few changes have taken place this year among club members, and the only changes in last year's club teams will be brought about by form only. Bryce Hart, late of Eden and Kpsom courts, has joined Rimuera this year, and E. V. Page, of the latter club," has returned to Australia, but I unde...
