OPENERS IN CENTURY STAND Gordon openers, Car- roll and Potter, put on 136 in 100 minutes against Randwick at Coogee Oval yesterday.     Potter made 68, including nine fours, and Carroll 64, with eight boundaries.   Both were out to similar deliv- eries from Ellison, who turned the ball well from a good length. Carroll and Potter have scored 1,062 runs between them for Gordon this season. Another fine partnership, by Delarue and Mendl, added 78 runs in 40 minutes for the third wicket. Mendl scored an aggressive 53 in 40 minutes, including two fours and two sixes. Gordon's 8-324 was the side's highest total this season.

ÜATHER Eligius Weir -?- laid down the Cate- chism he had been reading aloud and fixed his blue eyes on two convicts who had in- terrupted him. "Stop that." he demanded, "or take the consequences." "Take off that robe, Buck," one.of the sneering hecklers replied, "and we'll see who'll take the consequences." The brawny priest's face re- mained impassive. As chap- lain of the Illinois State"Pri son at .loliet. he was used to dealing with criminals. "I'll take off this robe foi no man," he answered. "But don't let that stop you. I'll take on you and your pal 01 any other two men in this room who think they're tough enough." The two convicts glared at the priest. They saw his broad shoulders, his massive, capable fists. They sat down. Not an- other word was heard from them. TO "Buck" Weir, this inci- dent was almost routine. In 21 years as chaplain at the Joliet prison, he helped to quell riots, convert tough hoodlu...

Man Bled To Death After Brawl [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Man Bled To Death After Brawl » A man bled to death from a severed artery in his ankle, at a house in Taylor Street, Darling- hurst, early yesterday. He was Oscar Augustus Whalley, 67, who was em- ployed as a cleaner at Vic- toria Barracks. ' Police think Whalley may have been struck with the jagged end of a bottle. They consider it possible also that he fell on the jagged end of a bottle. The Government Medical Offi- cer, Dr. Percy, found that,a deep wound in Whalley's ankle had been caused by downward pres- sure from above the an'kle. STORY OF BRAWL Detectives found that the dead man's wife, Mrs. Catherine Whal- ley, 65, had a gash in a hand.

I THE WEEK IN POLITICS Defence Lag Is Worrying All Parties By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT rT'HE most harassed man in Canberra last week *" was dour Scottish Defence Minister John Johnstone Dedman. T HE Government's "bricks without straw" defence policy was dragged out on the mat by . Opposition terriers, and thoroughly worried. Reports that the United States is reconsidering her Pacific de- fence strategy and the subsequent disclosure that Washington is gravely concerned at Australia's lack of defence, started the ball rolling. What was not revealed was that the British Government also (it is understood) is disquieted be- cause of slow progress with the joint Anglo-Australian guided missiles project in Central Aus- tralia. . . -. OÍR HENRY TIZARD, Chair man of the United Defence Research Policy Committee, who visited Australia last year, allowed Mr. Dedman to quote him last month as saying "the project is proceeding very satisfactorily," but it is understood his undis- closed report ...

Patience Big Factor In Colt's Win MELBOURNE, Satur- day.-Patience by both trainer Lou Robertson and rider W. Williamson played ä big part in the win of Rocket Gun in the Aberfeldie Handicap at Moonee Valley to-day. . Odds-on favourite Ungar shocked punters by finishing last in the race. Robertson has allowed Rocket Gun plenty of time to develop. The colt had oniy a few starts as a two-year-old, and has been very sparingly raced this season. He is a full brother to Mel- bourne Cup winner Sirius, and on to-day's form looks like ful- filling early promise of develop- ing into a top class slayer.

THIS WIDE WORLD Three Nations' Weather Quest LONDON.-Scientists from Britain, Nor- way, Sweden, and Australia are planning an expedition to the Antarctic at the end of this year. They want to know whether the earth is getting warmer. THEY think they may find out in Queen Maud Land-the big Norwegian section of Antarctica which lies almost due south of South Africa. Scientists have been consider- ing for some time the possibility of a world-wide climatic change. There has been local evidence that the North Polar ice-cap is retreating. Sea ice has been less, glaciers have been receding, plant growth has been increasing. Now Britain, Norway and Swe- den, under the guidance of the Royal Geographic Society, have decided to see whether the same thing is happening in the Ant- arctic. * * if \ rpHE expedition will leave Nor ' way in November, with seven Norwegian meteorologists, three Swedish glaciologists, and four British geologists-two of whom will be Australian.

Notes On World Events Of The Week [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Notes On World Events Of The Week By COLIN BINGHAM AT the conclusion this week of the annual congress of General de Gaulle's movement -the Rally of the French People-the' General gave the French middle - of - the - road Coalition Government a typi- cally brusque warning. He said that if a general elec- tion were not held soon "there will be only one thing to do throw out the usurpers." Those who suspect de Gaulle's activities as those of a potential dictator will quote this threat as evidence of his inclina- tions. Certainly his eagerness to have an election soon has been sharpened by the unexpec- ted way in which the Queuille Government has survived an almost continuouc barrage of difficulties. Supposing the unobtrusive Prime Minister, Queuille, and his Cabinet continue to' demon- strate that there is no need for France to look towards the Communists on the Left or to- wards de Gaulle's Rally on the Right? The General might then see his fortunes declining, because their recent rise...

I RACE NEWS I FROM ALL SOURCES 1 " WIN IS TONIC FOR TRAINER .-» Veteran trainer" Norman Dewsbury, who trained Salamanca, winner of the First Ashbury Mixed Stakes at Canterbury, visited a race course yesterday for the first time for three months. Dewsbury has been unable to attend race meetings recently because of sickness. Spanish Duke, who would have started a short-priced favourite for the event, was scratched by order of the veterinary surgeon, Mr. L. A. Monk. After the race, Dewsbury said he thought'Salamanca would de- velop into a real good horse. The promising three-year-old is owned by Mrs. T. L. F. Rut- ledge.

COLOUR PREJUDICE FORGOTTEN AT LA PEROUSE By A Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

COLOUR PREJUDICE FORGOTTEN AT LA PEROUSE By A Staff Correspondent When I visited La Perouse -location of Sydney's only aboriginal settlement - this week, I found there was no colour-bar in the community. In what seemed a lesson to the colour-conscious com- munity, I found white and coloured people living as neighbours and working to- gether in smooth harmony. "Darkie" is a word not used by the whites of La Perouse. Ilund-In-Hand Here are some of the things I saw at La Perouse: t Dark and white children running hand in hand down the road; . A white boy giving rides to half-caste lads on his scooter; . Fair and coloured children sharing school desks; . A white Australian leaning on the iron fence of his home and talking to an aboriginal who lived next door; . A half-caste working along- side a white plasterer on one of the new homes going up in the aboriginal reserve. / Gypsy Problem The only problem of any sort at La Perouse is the aboriginal gypsies, who are too shy to mix in the co...

Obstacles In Path Of San Domenico [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949

Obstacles In Path Of San Domenico MELBOURNE, Saturday.-Many racegoers expect Gay Archer, bred in Sydney but owned and trained in Mel- bourne, to beat San Domenico and other Sydney sprinters in the Oak- leigh Plate (5£f) at Caulfield next ' Saturday. South1 Australian Comedy Prince is at the top of his form and should also prove hard to beat. Melbourne experts claim that racing around the opposite way lo Sydney for the first time will affect San Domenico's chance. Caulfield, moreover, is a tricky course for a strange horse, with its down-the-hill run and a wide sweep into the straight. If San Domenico can over- come these obstacles and win, he will earn an American trip. Gay Archer, now a three-year i old, was bred by the late Mr. P. Miller at Kia-ora Stud. Scone. He won the Caulfield Debutant Stakes worth £.1,000 at his second start, and was then run- ner up in the Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington. After three unplaced stnrts this season, Gay Archer struck form with a vengeance. In h...

Police say the calls are made by an organised party of half a dozen men and women. They have concentrated so fat on annoying turf identities, both punters and bookmakers. A leading paddock bookmaker said they had driven him nearly insane. "For some time my elderly mother has been seriously ill," he said, "and I have been prepared for calls at all hours." "At 3 a.m. last Tuesday ] picked up the 'phone and an effeminate voice sang 'Rock-a-bye Baby.' "I slammed down the receiver but there was another ring almost immediately. "This' time nobody spoke.
