A Revaluation Of Strachey [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
A Revaluation Of Stracjiey By LORD DAVID CECIL Professor of English Litera- ture at Oxford The Collected Works of Lytton Strachey. 6 vols. (Chatio and Windus.) THE appearance in 1918 of "Eminent Victorians" was a literary event of the first import- ance. The elderly were dazzled and scandalised, the young were dazzled and delighted. A new author had written brilliantly a new kind of book. It was called biography; but previous bio- graphies-with a few distin- guished exceptions-had been very unlike this: solemn, lengthy, ponderous tomes, weighed down with reference and quotation, and in which the subject had been so bedraped with discretion and reverence as to lose all resembl- ance to ordinary humanity. This book was as lively and concen- trated as a good novel; and the characters as human and mobile and undignified as people we knew. It seemed as though art and psychological insight had combined to create a new literary form. . NOW, thirty-one years later, we read it again, and iti...
Romance Of Diamonds [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
Romance Of Diamonds "Stone of Destiny," by ¡on L. Idriess; Angus and Robert- son, Sydney. \ IN this racy book about dia- monds-a sort of all-you-need to-know compendium about a romantic gem-Ion Idriess re minds us that we have mined a few in Australia and might have mined more if we had tried harder. It appeafs that in the early tin mining days of northern New South Wales the miners' children used to play with "shinies." The miners, using a test out of Pliny, who was nob exactly an up-to-date scientist, believed that "A genuine diamond, when placed on an anvil, cannot be broken by a blow from a hammer." The miners did, in fact, break these shinies on their anvils and de- cided they were worthless. Afterwards, when the shinies were established as real diamonds,, the Amsterdam and Antwerp merchants were not greatly inter- ested. Australian diamonds were too hard to be worked safely. They came in parcels with a warn- ing to the buyer about their hard- ness. They went under the name ol ...
THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB Diary Of A Melancholy Genius [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
! THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB I L^^MSBBg,,,M,,MM,,,M,^,,,M|MBMM,M»M,^MiMMIMIiMMM»a Diary Of A Melancholy Genius By L. V. KEPERT EVERYONE who keeps a diary is not, presumably, queer. Yet, not counting the mégalo maniacs who, for the benefit of themselves or posterity, record their political triumphs, their amorous conquests or their mili- tary strategies, probably thous- ands of diary-scribblers this year, while facing the world outwardly serene and confident, will pour out the most shameful secret thoughts, hates and fears into a little book. If the diary-keeper becomes famous enough, these furtive scribblings-these juicy exhibits of an unhappy soul-are just what his biographer needs to toss to the public. Anyone knowing the lost and baffled character that stalks the novels of Franz Kafka will ex- pect something extra morbid from his diaries. . - T/"AFKA, in the 25 years since **\his death, has spread an in- fluence far beyond his native Prague and far beyond the reach of the few German re...

SPOTLIGHT ON WOULD AFFAHS Greek Rebel Leaders Struck A Blow For Moscow Front H. G. KIPPAX, in London fIREEK COMMUNISTS came out of their U* mountain stronghold in the north last week in a determined effort to take the town of Florina. The new drive was connected with the change in Communist leadership. New orders had come from Moscoiv. li. G. Kippax, ioho went to Greece recently lo study political conditions, here sums up the sudden changes. THE Greek Communists launched a tremendous drive last week against Florina, in Macedonia, and observers knew that the new _ Communist commanders were on the job of striking a blow for the Cominform. The old commander, "General" Markos, had looked more inter- red in Greek nationalism than la international Communism, so fioscow had replaced him. One [íto in the Balkans was enough. The new leaders were obeying t order from the Cominform, \t Communist international oily, to get themselves a fair ad town in Greece to serve as jeir "capital"-the "seat...

FINE SPRINT BY SCHOOLBOY By Jim Carlton Noel Hayes, Associated Schools' 220-yards champion, stole the limelight from the seniors yesterday by a really brilliant display, of sprinting. Hayes was competing in the State Athletic Champion- ships at University Oval. Record Beaten On times, this 16-year-old boy from Waverley College, would have won the senior 220yds.

John Forsyth of Northern Sub- urbs, rounded off a consistent season's running by winning the senior 220yds Uitlc. Forsyth has been in training since last May. His excellent form at the end of a long sea- son shows that year-round train- ing does not burn out an athlete. Treloar Again It was good to see John Tre- loar on the track again, even if only i...
Great Riders With Huge Publics [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
Great Riders With Huge Publics By BILLY COOK When I retire from race-riding, which I am determined will not be for a long time, I shall be able to look back with satisfaction on the fact that I have competed with the great horsemen of the last 20 years. I CAN call to mind immedi ately the pames of eight, each with a tremendous pub- lic following. They are Jimmy and Darby Munro, Maurice McCarten, Jim Pike, Ted Bartle, Ted McMena min, Harold Badger, and "Scobie" Breaslcy. In latter years, I have ridden for Jim Munro. McCarten, and McMenamin as trainers. These are some of the men who have made race competition as keen as anyone could imagine, The two stars of Victoria in recent years. Badger and Breas- lcy, are as different as chalk and cheese. " Badger, a great all-rounder, is noted for his vigour in a finish. He has a fine pair of hands, is a good judge of pace, and has shown almost uncanny know- ledge of where to make his run. Breasley excels in his patience. He will wait and wait f...

BEING funny IS NO JOKE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
. BEING funny is NO JOKE. Writing comedy for the radio is just &nbsp; hard work for writers who know there hasn't been a new joke since the cave-dwellers learned to laugh. By JOHN BRENNAN THERE is one thing about a radio - or two things actually; because you can switch it off. It usually has someone putting over a gag that is good &nbsp; enough for a smile, no matter &nbsp; how dull the weather or how irritating the wife's suggestion that you would be better em- ployed drying dishes. That's all right for you, and it's all right for the thousands of other people who find the weather dull and the wife &nbsp; impossible at the same time. But for the people behind the gags-the men who wrote them, and who know that &nbsp; tomorrow they will have to be funny again and write half-a-dozen more - it's a painful business. It is very nearly as &nbsp; bad as a never-ending attack of the 'flu, when it is difficult &nbsp; to decide whether i...
WHAT'S IN THEIR NAME? No. 5 — Bottle And Glass Point [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 20 February 1949
WHAT'S IN THEIR NAME? No. 5 — Bottle And Glass Point RUNNING out from the end &nbsp; of Vaucluse Point, at the &nbsp; western end of the bight formed &nbsp; by Watson's Bay, is a short reef. It ends in a large pulpit rock, named Bottle and Glass. Once upon a time, so the story goes, this rock bore the appear- ance of a bottle, complete with neck. A smaller rock formed the glass. It was one of the curious sights of the harbour, until an early man o' war, with its short-range guns, decided to use the bottle for tar- get practice. This had disastrous results for the rock formation. Wind and weather further contributed to its &nbsp; disintegration. Bottle and Glass is now best known to fishermen. A submarine depression running out into the harbour from the reef is a fav- ourite haunt of the large red bream. -E. OAKES
