An Impossible Janitor W.A.T.C. Office. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920

« An Impossible Janitor WA.TX3. Office. Dear Mirror, . * There's a man named Menyliar, or something like that, that hangs round the front office of the W-A. T.C. He's about the most selfim portant person in Perth — loves to lord it over the kids, or anybody he thinks hasn't enough kick coming to put 'him straight. This Merrylier's choice fad is in sulting pressmen who come into his office1— beg pardon, I mean the W-A. Turf Club Office— for their tickets. 'Hullo, your rag isn't still pub lishing, is it?' 'Aha, in for a tick et for the defunct tripewrap?' and so forth, are samples of his usual greetings. Now, sir, this sort of thing is alright between man and man, but when a servant of a lead ing race club gasps out such inane gusts of bad taste in front of office boys, visitors, casual callers, etc., it's tin* to put in a protest. The other day a fellow pressman called in, and was greeted by this long fathom of ditch-water with the query, 'Hullo, you again? Don't Bay your circulation...

Mr. P. A. Connolly W.A.'s BEST-KNOWN SPORT RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920

Mr. P. A. Connolly W.A.'s BEST-KNOWN SPORT RETURNS. Arrived home in the West from England yesterday is Mr. P. A. Con nolly, one of the best-known sport ing men of this State. 'Paddy' is looking well and feeling fit despite a strenuous run home in which a very torrid spell in the Red Sea constituted one of the hottest spells he has ever met. On the whole he is glad to be back to a land where racing is pro perly conducted, for despite the fact that the 'sport' is booming in Great Britain and meetings are in vogue on an average five days a. week with huge attendances at all of them, Mr. Connolly can find little good in the turf management of Pog Land. Compared with Aus tralian conditions they are positive ly 'rotten,' and this despite the fact that longer usage and better stud-masters are breeding a very superior horse there^-much in ad vance of the Australian galloper. Fact is the British 'heads' are too conservative and will not learn or try to assimilate new ideas, and so racing mus...

Maylands Mems [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920

Mayiands Meois The talk of the town is Pitchers— when other local topit-s inde. But the other topics ojs-V ret to be allowed to fade. Some fade, of coarse, more than others. When pitchers fade^ — like on wet nights — the subject that re quires most attention might have a chance of being discus&ed. The de mand of the hour, minute, or mo ment, whichever the ratepayers de termine, is really an important one. More important than the question of site fos-the Soldiers' Memorial. In fact what our locality does de mand is some general attention to general local matters that have be come generally colloquial. That is to say there is so much begging the attention of rate payers' representatives. The con dition into which things have drift ed of late is the one and only topic of serious conversation. Even that seriousness is wafted away by hil arious laughter of humorously dis posed ratepayers in confab. But can these humorists help being hil arious? Read on, friends, read this: Great ...

BUTTER Pilkington Exposes Government Ramp TO FLEECE BUT TER CONSUMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920

BUTTER PiWiiiglon Exposes Government Ramp TO FLEECE BUT TER CONSUMERS. The question of the price of but ter was hotly discussed on Thurs day in the Assembly. Mr. Collier accused the Government and Price Fixing Board of abusing their po sitions and said the price of 2s. 8d. lor local butter was excessive con sidering the circumstances. It had not been fixed by the Commission on the cost of production and peo ple were called upon to pay more than a fair price. Why had the ' Government assisted the Butter Factories Association to the extent of £1,000 of £1.200 to purchase 250 tons of imported butter at 2s. 7M. a pound? Was the purchase made in order that the butter could be withdrawn from sale so that people would be compelled to buy the lo cal article? Scaddan, who knew nothing of the matter, the Minister concern ed being in the Council, bluffed around the subject for about an hour without answering the ques tion. Then Mr. Pilkington gently proceeded to dissert the joke -? put up on t...

The Sunday Mirror PERTH, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 14th., 1920 THE WRECK OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920

Ok Sunday mirror PERTH. SONDAT. NOVEMBER I4th . 18J2O THE WjJECK OF EUROPE. -For many centuries the storm-centre of Europe has ever been the Balkan Peninsula, which, strangely enough, was^tne home of the great est of the early civilisations of tne European race. True, modern European polities are little concerned with the cul ture oi pre-Canstian Greece, but— curious analogy — the modern Bal kan prooiem, and that oi ancient Greece, are strangely analogous. In eituer case tne proposition was one of violently jealous small States pit ted against mignty Empires. Unfortunately, the similarity goes no further. Persia, Babylon, Egypt, Syria— tne 'Great Powers' of the first half-thousand years B.V. — rose to . dominance at diner ent periods, ? and at no time were any two of them so powerful at one time that the interests of the lit tie Greek States were nkeiy to be of value to tnem in tne old, dis honoured game of ?'pre-etvaig tne balance of power.' Wnen Greece met t-ertia, it was a dose c...

Olympia. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920

Olympia. Packed houses greeted the new week's programme at the Olympia on Friday night. Jack Bursey has fitted this place out in great style. It is not only fresh and cool these sultry nights, but added to that is the pleasure of hearing one of the finest all round companies seen in the West. ' The fine orchestra alone would be worth the admission prices. A fine duet was put up by Jaffrey and Kingsley. Ida New ton put in a fine few minutes, and was recalled. Then the wind broke loose, and she had a rough time singing against it. Ida's calves showed up finely. She sure is some girl. Roberts got to work then, but the rain also got to work too. It was funny to watch the house duck for shelter. Roberts got off one of the best yet on a Perth audi ence. He was singing a. soldier's song, and when the crowd ducked for shelter he said, 'What? Has the retreat been sounded?' The moisture was too much for the audi ence, and very soon the big drums, etc., were hoisted on to the stage for shelter...

COMING TO BIS MAJESTY'S. BIG J. C. WILLIAMSON AT TRACTION. "TILLY OF BLOOMSBURY." [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920

COMING TO HIS MAJESTY'S. BIG J. C. WILLIAMSON AT ' ' TRACTION. 'TILLY OF BLOOMSBURY.' 'Tilly of Bloomsbury,' to be pre sented, at His Majesty's Theatre- on Saturday night next by J. C. Wil liamson's new English Comedy Co., is stated to more thari sustain the big reputation which had preceded it as one of the brightest of comedy dramas. This play has occupied a prominent place in the theatrical world for some time past, and its advent here,- especially after its sucessful seasons in Sydney and Melbourne, is being awaited with much interest. Speaking of the first production in Sydney, -a lead ing critic said: — 'J. C. Williamson's new English Comedy Company ap peared on Saturday evening in 'Tilly of Blomsbury,' a three-act comedy-drama by Ian Hay, being a delightful adaption of his own book, 'Happy-go-Lucky.' With the ex ception of Mrs. Robert Brough, tn«» principal artists who appeared in the comedy were seen for the first time in Sydney, and in their pre sentation of the new piece m...

Was clerking in Adelaide for an insurance com-, pany, and later on as treasurer for a theatrical firm there. Drew down 70/- weekly, and didn't run any mo cars on it, or fast ladies either. Fell out with the local manager and told him that 'before long he would be catching more in a fortnight than his boss did in a month. The boss nearly died laughing. Jack's hobby was hand balahcing. Considered he was better than a lot of the alleged stars showing in Adelaide, but could n't get the manager to believe it. Blew into Sydney, changed his name, saw Fuller's manager there, and as a full-blown South African vaudeville expert was snapped up...

Racing Comments COMMENTS ON W.A.T.C. (Bv 'Cricklewood, Tun.') The W-A.T.C. held its November meeting yesterday in beautiful spring weather. The attendance was good. Proceedings opened with the San dringham Hurdles, for w,hich Laroon and Semper Paratus were scratched, leaving seven to face the barrier. Betting opened at 2 to 1 the field, at which pnee Nonplussed was bact ed, but with the backing of Rou leau at threes and five to two, eas ed to 5 to 2, but hardened again to twos. ? Although the winner was officially quoted at 5 to 2 there was plenty of threes available at the barrier-rise. Loch Sure was back ed at fives and sixes, while there was a little cash for Yarrandale and Bobihski at sevens. Loch Sure made the pace a cracker from the start from Rouleau, Bobinski, and Nonplussed. Four furlongs from home Rouleau took the jump with Loch Sure and from there the race was never in doubt, and Rouleau *an home a winner by two and a quarter lengths. Nonplusse?K-was a length away third. ...
