PANNADE'S WIN IN FUND HANDICAP Harold Badger Has Fall At Moonee Valley [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 21 December 1941
PANNADE'S WIN IN FUND HANDICAP Harold Badger Has Fall At Moonee Valley MELBOURNE, Saturday.-There was a sensation in the Three-Year Old Handicap at' Moonee Valley to-day,' when Pyramus, ridden by Harold Badger, appeared to suffer interference a furlong after the start. Badger was thrown out of the saddle and ; was rolled along the ground for many yards. Although he seemed to have had a heavy fall, Badger appar ently. escaped injury. He was ly ing stretched out on the ground when the ambulance . arrived, but he got up and walked over to it. P. Simmonds, who rode Portfolio, was suspended for. one month for crossing Pyramus too shortly. Apparently in a hopeless position half a mile from home, Vermont finished, so well in the Three-Year Old Handicap, that he got up in the.last stride to defeat Sunrocks by a head. Pannade deserved the cheers that greeted him as he returned to scale following. his half head victory over the Sydney Gelding, Koorenbeen, in the Fund Handicap, the chief race ...
TODAY'S SHORT STORY Old Crusted [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 21 December 1941
*~DY'S. IT DAjSHORT I ,,J:id Stainton was careful not to wipe the dust from the bottle of old crusted as he set it on the salver. His. lordship liked the port not only to taste mature but to look mature. And this was the last-the very last!-of two hundred and fifty hottles laid down by his lordship's grandfather. To-night, Mrs. Stainton, who was also his lordslhip's cook, had taken herself off to the liictures; her ab sence gave him a sense of .ease and freedom. He had reached the hall when the front door bell rang twice. Staintoh clicked his tongue in annoyance, put the salver down on. the jacobean rug box, and went to the door. The caller was a woman, short, plump, and middle-aged-a type that the righteous Mrs. Stainton would. have designated a "hussy." "Miss Molly Rouse to see Lord Helmdale," she said, in a robust, husky voice. "And you needn't. tell me he's not in, because .I saw him come in." Stainton took a deep breath. "Wait a moment," he said, and closed the door. Soon he re...

FIRST PICTURES OF PACIFIC WAR TO BE RECEIVED IN AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 21 December 1941
FIRST PICTURES OF PACIFIC WAR TO BE RECEIVED IN AUSTRALIA These pictures of the bomb damage caused by Japanese raiders on Singapore last Monday week, are the first to be received in Australia. The photos were published for the first time, in Sydney, during last week. They are Department of Information films, and were only shown on the screen by Fox Movietone and Cinesound, on Friday night, for the first time in Australia. To be able to present such pictures in Darwin, of the war at Singapore, less than two weeks after the bombings took place, is a remarkable effort, which we know the men here will appreciate, and for which Army News again thanks its source of supply. Pictures at left show air raid precaution efforts in Sydney on Tuesday. NATIVES AT WORK on a bomb crater made in a Singapore Street on December 8. Singapore casualties from this raid were 6o killed and 133 taken to hospital. Other bombs landed in the street near the business section, leaving quite a lot of debris to be ...

His points were as follows: (r) In the' field of a' new- order based oii moral principles, there, be no place for the annexation of othgr people's liberties or integrity, what ever their territorial aspirations or capacity to defend themselves.
