VICTOR TRUMPER AS BOYHOOD HERO [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

VICTOR TRUMPER AS BOYHOOD HERO By ALAN KIPPAX In this article, specially written for "The Sunday I Herald," Alan Kippax tells of his hero worship of the i great Victor Trumper. The Kippax-Oldfield Testi- monial match will begin at the S.C.G. on Friday. Kippax batting. SINCE the N.S.W. Cricket Association generously decided that Bert Oldfield and I should share a Testi monial match (we were to have had one in 1939, but the war stopped it), I have been bombarded with queries about incidents in my long cricket career. I have been reminded that 1 first played for Waverley-the only grade club for which I ever played-at the age of 14. That is true; but I played in long pants-not shorts! I was hardly big enough to cast a shadow; but the club's rules were firm. I must wear shorts, So mother had to buy me a pair, That was in 1913-14. I began in first grade, but in the same season was promoted to the firsts, under the captaincy of the great Syd Gregory. So I wore long pants on Satur- days and...

The clubhcad has been posted with the request that it be examined, and approv- ed or otherwise.

Von Nida had complained that the clubs would not have been passed in England because of deep surface markings. Cremin broke the handle of a No. 5 iron at the tourney and later submitted the clubhead to The Lakes Club match committee. The Lakes Club sent the head to the N.S.W. Golf Association. They asked that in the interests of golf it should be sent to St. Andrews for a ruling.

Youngster May Be Next Star KELLAWAY OUTPACES Marshall Takes 200 Title [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Youngster May Be Next Star KELLAWAY OUTPACES JUNIOR FIELD Marshall Takes 200 Title By Frank Tierney BRISBANE, Saturday.-Slim, 14-year-old Barry Kelleway, of Palm Beach club, won the junior 400 metres title so easily to-night that he appears the successor in Australian freestyle swimming to John Marshall. Later Marshall had a very easy win himself, in the 200 metres championship. His time, 2m 14.3s, set a Queensland record. It is obvious that. Kelleway will develop considerably under long range plans made by Forbes Carlile for him, and he must be a serious contender for the Empire Games. In the recent N.S.W, cham- pionships he won three junior titles and was never extended. To-night he won the 400 metres so easily -that his time need not be seriously considered.

Police Say New "Raffles" Stole Jewels In American Film World From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Police Say New "Raffles" Stole Jewels In American Film World From Our Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Feb. 19.-Police in Cleveland (Ohio) have arrested a man whom they describe as "a great lover and a great robber." The man, Gerard Dennis, who is 29, will be charged before a Federal Grand Jury with felonious assault, burglary, and grand lar- ceny. Police allege that Dennis stole jewels worth 750,000 dollars (<£A234,375) in Canada and several American States. They say that, like Raffles, the gentleman burglar of fiction, he associated with wealthy people. Then by night, he looted their homes, his face covered with a black silk handkerchief. Authorities in several States have so far accounted for these hauls of jewels: 250,000 dollars in the Beverly Hills area; 140,000 dollars in 16 suburban New York homes; and 170,000 dollars in Canada. When arrested, police say, he was carrying 18,000 dollars in un- set diamonds. A Cleveland jeweller said he recognised Dennis in a "man want...

ODD FACTS UNGRACIOUS PARROT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

ODD FACTS UNGRACIOUS PARROT TOM Ugly's Point, New South Wales, is named after an   early settler called Tom Huxley. The aborigines in the district   called him Tom Uckley. In time the name became Tom Ugly. Many stories are told about the 100-years-old parrot that was kept in the old hotel there. One concerns the time when the wife of a State Governor dined at the hotel. She was a woman with a rather large nose. The bird was introduced, but   refused to speak to the lady. It   kept a grim silence until the Gov- ernor's wife raised a cup of tea to her lips," then shrieked savagely: "Take your great beak out of that!" —BILL BEATTY.

Record Run By Girl Sprint Star [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Record Run By Girl Sprint Star By Pat Borthwick Brilliant Lithgow sprinter, Marjorie Jack- son, retained her 100 yards country champion ship in record time at the Sports Ground yesterday. Miss Jackson bettered her own country record.of 11.6s by four-tenths of a second. She later won the juniot 75-yards championship. In the 100 yards, Miss Jackson got away well at the start, but was headed slightly until near half-way, where she appeared to increase her speed. At the tape she was two yards ahead of clubmate Beulah Chick. Another" Lithgow girl, V. Williams, was third. ' Last year Miss Jackson won the junior title in 11.3s, but the officials ruled that her previous time would stand because of wind assistance. Since it was the first time a 75-yards junior sprint has been included in the championships, Miss Jackson's time of 8.5s will ,be recognised as a country record. s The V.W.A.A.A. has invited Marjorie Jackson to compete in the" Victorian State . champion- ships at Melbourne on Febr...

The Tragic Story Of Steel Output Our Biggest Industrial Plant Languishes, And Everyone Suffers By A Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

The Tragic Story Of Steel Output Our Biggest Industrial Plant Languishes, And Everyone Suffers By A Staff Correspondent 'THE B.H.P. steel* orks al Ne* castle, the largest single industrial plant in Australia, is languishing for vant of coal. , All Australia is wanting steel. Housing is being held up for vant of it. Tlie railways are not doing their job for want of it. Australia's wool industry is threatened hy rabbits because graziers r.annot get the .Hire-netting which steel would provide. In fact, the steel shortage-the worst in our history-hits all of us be- cause almost the entire range of Aus- tralian industry and employment de- pends on steel as a basic material. Tlie' Newcastle steelworks, which has a capacity of 1 million tons of steel ingots a year, is producing less than 75 per cent, of that. THE nearest the plant got to maximum output was in 1941, when 994,000-tons were produced. After that, output declined steadily each year until last year it fell to the record. low lev...

Casual Converse. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

.Casual Converse. By Warwick Fairfax I_ IT is a pity that Dr. Bean, in an unguarded moment last Sunday, spilt whitewash over Cromwell: it obscures two essential lessons which are very relevant to-day. First, that people who start revolutions to cure national ills are putting spurs into a bolting horse - they never know where they will finish up; and, secondly, that there is no stronger force to corrupt man's soul than the temptations of supreme responsi- bility and personal power. The rebellion took place partly be- cause the King's successful efforts to free himself from financial dependence upon Parliament were seen to strike at the very roots of liberty; and partly because his High Church policy, smacking of what was called "Popery," was hated not only by Presbyterians and Independent Puritans but by most moderate Anglicans. The war was fought with the object not-- of de- throning the King but of forcing him to modify these policies; as is clear frpm the negotiations with him whe...

ISLAND IN THE RIVER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

iSL^XISD IN THE RIVER Short Story By M. Thorpe Clark "1Z"EEP away from that -*?*? island," William Redvers said coldly, his dark face colourless and unfriendly. "That's a hard and fast rule I make for chaps who work here on River Island Station." Jim Farrow, the new 17-year - old drover, stared across at the small island, covered with timber and scrub, that lay in the middle of the wide-mouthed river. A quarter-mile farther on the river itself was lost iii the tumbling waters of the ocean. "Is this'where your other stock- man was drowned, a few months ago?'l he asked quietly. The older man looked at him sharply. "No." he said shortly. "That accident happened on the beach a mile from here-he was surfing. He evidently struck a i dumper and fractured his skull. Jacky, the cook, and I found him washed up on the beach.' "Was he a good swimmer?" "Course he was a good swim- mer!" Redvers was angry. "Cut out the questions. Just remem Jim lunged forward, but Redvers was quick, too. In that s...

Hobby Shop Helps Film Stars [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Hobby Shop Helps Film Stars MOST Hollywood film   stars have some hobby to help calm their nerves. Joan Crawford, for instance, knits and sews for her four adopted children. She claims that knitting is particularly soothing, and even takes it with her when she goes to the pictures. At one of her own pre- views, as the climax approach- ed, she snatched her knitting out of her handbag and began knitting furiously. She was wearing bracelet hung with tiny bells and they set up a pagoda-like tinkling. In her big screen scene some- one leaned back and said: "For heaven's sake shut up and let Joan Crawford have a chance." She did. Two young Hollywood per- lormers, John Beal and his wife, Helen Craig, made a   lucrative hobby for themselves out of the work of other people. They recently opened a small shop in the busiest tour- ist section of Hollywood. A green neon sign outside reads: "John. Beal presents Actors'   Hobby Market." INSIDE, on the gay yel...

Swimming Instruction Urged For All Young Children [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

I Swimming Instruction Urged For All Young Children A State-wide campaign to teach every child to swim at the earliest possible age should be started immediately, Mr. J. Harvey Prior said yesterday. Mr. Harvey Prior is the chairman of the New South Wales branch of the Royal Life Saving Society. He said: "The appalling num ! ber of young children who have been drowned recently should make the necessity for such a campaign apparent to every parent. "The Royal Life Saving Society teaches lifesaving, but if everyone was taught to swim at an early age there would not be such a need for lifesavers. "It is easy to teach children to ' swim when they are young. They , learn very quickly." | The secretary of the Education j Departments physical training programme, Dr. H. S. Wyndham, i said last night that swimming in struction for schoolchildren was a major" part of the Education De- partment's physical training pro ; gramme. j All children, nine years of age 'and over, who had their parents'...
