Barefooted rioters tore a gaudy bullring to pieces FACT'S New York News Bureau [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

Barefooted rioters tore a gaudy bullring to pieces FACT'S New York News Bureau In an hour rioters wrecked a ¿£220,000 bullring", pride of gaudy Guatemala City, piling chairs and gala furnishings onto a bonfire. It was thc ninth anniver- sary of thc coming to power of Guatemala's President Jacobo Arbcnz, 40. In 1944. Arbcnz, then only 31 and a penniless army officer, seized control from dictator Generalissimo Jorge Ubico, who had kept Guatemala in feudal slum- ber from 1930. For the anniversary bull- fight, famous matadors from Spain and Mexico were to make their first Central American appearance. Then 20,000 of Arbenz's largely shirtless and shoeless subjects rushed thc bullring gates, seized scats and left official guests seething out- side the arena. Then they tore the place to pieces. President. Arbcnz had to call off the fight and send the matadors home. Champagne flowed Though seemingly a spon- taneous affair, the riot add- ed up to a nasty political setback for Arbenz. But cha...

Dairy of a Doctor who tells Cheeking up on the heart [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

Cheeking up on the heart "Wind round the heart" is not a disease to be found in text-books, hut those experiencing such symptoms may need medical examination. This applies particularly to the middle-aged.

J Redeswood In Two Mishaps MELBOURNE,-; Sat urday. - Maiden Filly Caramba (20-1), caused an upset when she flew over the last furlong to snatch a last stride win in the Wakeful Stakes, at Flemington yesterday.

[?]DID COMM [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

JDID GOMM By ONLOOKER J^JTJCH exaggerated nonsense is being talked, and some Killy proposals are being made, on the subject of compulsory unionism. The case against this intolerable invasion of personal liberty, this State building-up of an already arrogant extra-constitutional power, is strong enough without resort to hysterical over-statement. Most stupid of the resis- tance plans suggested is that the .' Commonwealth should initiate a referendum. As if the Menzies Government hadn't burned its fingers al- ready with the anti-Com- munist poll! And as if N.S.W. electors wouldn't resent Fed- eral interference in a matter of State concern! For sheer hyperbole, com- mend me to the claim by A. D. Bridges, M.L.C., at the Liberal Party's Federal Coun- cil in Canberra, that "no issue this century had caused more resentment than the Socialists' attempt to force citizens into unions." Doesn't he recall the con- scription referendums of 1916 17, or the bank grab of 1947? Compulsory unionism w...

The Sun-Heral[?] SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1953 CENSORING "OBSCENE" PUBLICATIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1953 CENSORING "OBSCENE" PUBLICATIONS JN an attempt to suppress a type of booklet specialising in sex and crime, lately become popu- lar with a section of Aus ' tralian readers, State Cabi- net proposes to extend still further the definition of "obscene publication," already made very wide by tlie amending Act of 1946. It was then laid down that, without prejudice to the general meaning of the word "obscene," any mat- ter should be deemed obscene which in the opinion of the Court would tend to encourage depra- vity, or to injure the morals of the public or of any class or section of it. That would seem to be a suffici- ently dragnet provision. Biit now obscenity is to in ' elude any matter "tending to corrupt or deprave per- sons whose minds are open to immoral influences," or emphasising "sex, crimes of violence, horror, or gross cruelty." Applied literally, a defi . nition so sweeping, would wipe half the books and magazines from the book- stalls, and seriously...

AmazuiQi BurstBy My Hero in Hotham Hep. N Z. HORSES SHINE MELBOURNE, Saturday. - Af ter Caulfield Cup winner My Hero had smothered the opposition to win the Hotham Handicap at Flemington to-day, owner-trainer Mr. Oliver Watson said he thought the horse would win the Melbourne Cup. My Hero was in an apparently impossible position, with only one horse behind him at the turn. He finished brilliantly down the outside and beat Lord .Forrest by a head. Earldom was half a neck away third. My Hero thus brought his tally in Australian racing to three wins the Herbert Power Handicap, Caulfield Cup and Hotham Handicap from five starts. Lord Forrest's finish- ing effort was a little in- ferior to that of My Hero. He was locked in on the inside a furlong and a half from home, but . when he got clear he" stretched out in fine style. Earldom, fifth at the turn, hung on well to be third. His performance empha- sises the strong hand held by New Zealand in the Mel- bourne Cup of 1953. With a mile to ...

CARBINE'S 10.5 [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

CARBINE'S 10.5 BIGGEST weight carried to victory in the Melbourne Cup is 10-5 by Carbine in   1890. Archer, winner of the first two Cups, carried 9- 7 in 1861 and 10-2 the following year. A year before he won the Cup, Carbine carried 10-0 into second place to Bravo (8-7). Others to finish second under big weights were Mormon with 10-1, second to Archer in 1861; Panic with 10-0 in 1865, second to Toryboy; and Wakeful with 10- 0, second to Lord Car- digan in 1903. The weight carrying record is held by Phar Lap who was handicapped at 10-10 in the 1931 Melbourne Cup. He finished eighth behind White Nose. Phar Lap had won the Cup a year earlier, as a four-year-old, with 9-12. Eurythmic broke down in 1921, carrying 10-5, and Peter Pan finished fifteenth in 1935 with 10-6.   Poseidon, after his amaz- ing previous season, when he won the two Derbies, Caul- field and Melbourne Cups, failed to complete the double in 1907.

"Eternity" On The Footpath Eternity [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

"Eternity" On The Footpath A Sydney artist believes she knows who chalks the word "Eternity" on walls and footpaths in the city. The artist, Mrs, G, R. Scott, of Pariwi Road, Mos-   man, said this week that she met a man and a woman re- cently on Sydney Harbour Bridge who said they wrote it. "I was on the bridge one afternoon making sketches of the harbour," Mrs. Scott said. "A fairly young, country type of woman, who was rather fiery and enthusiastic, came and spoke to me. "She talked to me for quite a while. "I thought it was strange for a woman to be wander- ing over the bridge, so I asked her, 'What is your work?' "Before she could tell me a man came along. It turn- ed out they were friends." Mrs. Scott said the woman spoke to her for a long time about the transience of earthly life and the import- ance of the hereafter. 'The man, who was a   quieter, ascetic, rather cul- tured-looking person, was carefully chalking a word on thc footpath. "From what th...

REX FORTESCUE, a businessman of dubious   reputation, dies when he swallows a dose of   tanine (a poison distilled from yew berries).

PARENTS TOO "KIND" Life "Made Easy" For Modern Boy They Allow Him Too Much Money "MR. CHIPS" SUMS UP [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

PARENTS TOO "KIND" Life "Made Easy" For Modern Boy They Allow Him Too Much Money "MR. CHIPS" SUMS UP A decision to close Mowbray House School, Chatswood, next year means that Sydney will say goodbye to its own "Mr. Chips." The decision will end the teaching career of Mr. Lance Bavin, who founded, the school in 1906 and has been principal for 47 years. Mr; Bavin has seen many of his pupils pass into some of the most important business and professional positions in the State.'   Yesterday, in his cosy study, this little, silver-haired man, alert and young-looking for his 72 years, passed judgment on the modern boy. He thinks that, in basic charac-   ter, the boy of to-day is much the same as the boy of a genera- tion ago. BUT . . . "Most of the faults of the modern boy can be traced to his parents." Mr. Bavin says. "It Is Tempo Of Living" "In these days of over-indulg- ent parents, life is made easy for children and it is becoming in- creasingly difficult to ...

KEEP OFF MERCURY BAY GRASS [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

KEEP OFF MERCURY BAY GRASS A NEW "lawn grass" which is supposed to   dispense willi need for cutting is being offered. This "Mercury Bay Grass" is not a grass at all, but a weed, a member of the Convolvulus or Bindweed family. It is Dicliondra repens or Kidney Weed, an infernal pest in any garden. The small leaves are kidney-shaped, and many gardeners know it. I have spent three years trying to rid my backyard lot of the pesty stuff. That was, a result of being induced to let it grow for a while.     because it "covered bare   ground" nicely. lt covered and ran and escaped into almost inaccessible places, seeded and got   into lawns and generally   became unwelcome. I think I've got it in hand now, this small creeping native violet-looking stuff, but be wiser and keep off it. In New Zealand, during the war, this invader got the better of the grass in some bowling greens and covered the ground so effectivel...

Leon Geliert Abandons... PLAYING THE HORSES The Melbourne Cup of 1953 will go down in history as the last occasion on which I placed a bet with a book- maker. In future I will not risk even casually mentioning the name of a single racehorse. IT seems that, quite un * known to me, 1 have for years enjoyed the reputation, among the members of the Burran Avenue Rheumatic Club, of being something of a tipster. In view of thc fact that I am unfamiliar with the rac- ing game I have always been rather puzzled to notice how every November, on the eve of the great event, they clus- ter round me anxious to dis- cover my preferences. And 1 have always been free with my recommendations, never, at any time, attempt- ing to mislead them. It was encouraging, but equally perplexing, that after thc race was over, none of them reviled mc for putting them on a loser. lt appears that my vogue as a prophet began in the year when the club was first formed. 1 remember the occasion perfectly. I had hurried...
