Orchestra Needs Support [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 20 July 1950

Orchestra Needs Support SIR, — The outstanding success of the concert by the Illawarra Symphony Orchestra (an ama teur orchestra)' on Monday even ing last must .have been [ most gratifying to the citizens who have supported the orchestra since, its inception.. ' , responded, to their best ability, to the re.quests made by the guest conductor, ,Dr. Bainton, and therefore proved' that the ground-work prepared by Mr. Moore' McMahon. (in an honor ary capacity too) has been laid on a good foundation. It has to be remembered that quite a few of the players in the orchestra can attend only two orchestral practices each month, through being, employed on shift work. Players also pay their | own travelling expenses. ? I understand that financially the orchestra is not on a sound foundation, which is to be de plored in a city that boasts of }ts sportsmanship. Is it not possible for the or chestral committee to publish the names of its 1950 subscrib ers, and thereby enable their j fellow citize...

NO "RUBBER STAMP" LEGISLATION [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 20 July 1950

NO 'RUBBER STAMP' LEGISLATION WASHINGTON, Wednesday (A.A.P.), — Republican leaders Said today that they would not 'rubber-stamp' any emergency legislation proposed by Presi dent Truman but first would make sure what mobilisation of American resources was neces sary. Senator Robert Taft and Rep resentative Joseph Martin said their .party would give the greatest possible backing to American troops fighting in Korea, but would demand , that voluntary home-front controls be applied .before . compulsion was attempted, even in a lim ited field. President Truman, in his mes sage to Congress today, is ex pected to ask for (1) authority to call up at least 200,000 men for the armed forces; (2) over 5000 million dollars for defence; (3) power to check inflation; and (4) authority to allocate steel and other .vital war mate rials.

"Dollars For Fight Against Communism" [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 20 July 1950

'Dollars For Fight Against Communism' DETROIT, Wednesday (A.A.P.) — Walter Reuther, President of the United Auto Workers' Union, yesterday proposed that the United States invest 1,300,000 mil lion dollars (£446,562,500,000) in a 100 years' fight to rid the world of Communism. Reuther, an old foe of Com munism, advocated this 'globular total peace offensive' under United States leadership, in a letter to President Truman. He described it as a 'compel- ling . necessity for democratic survival.' The backbone of Reuther's pro gramme would be a huge inter national enterprise, operating from a 'People's World Assem bly for Peace' within the. United Nations! Each nation, he proposed, 1 should contribute according to its means 'to the United . Nations' fund for economic and social construction with the 'assem- bly' charting the course of ac tion. I

San Domenico's Odds Extended For Winter Handicap [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 20 July 1950

Sau Domenico's -0dds Extended For Winter Handicap SYDNEY, Wednesday. — Bookmakers to day slightly extended San Domenico's odds for the Winter Handicap because of the per sistent heavy backing for the lightweights Bungymun and Salamanca. Bungymun and Salamanca' have been elevated to the third line and only the favourite and Heroic Sovereign are preferred to them in the betting. Although the race has been put, iback a week, it is still cer tain trt*bp run' on a -heavv track: Both these horses 'have proved their.-; ability to . .handle a wet track.. Another, reason for their backing is that- they iboth have light weights and good recent form. Salamanca has only 6.11 and Bungymun 7.2. Bookmakers, however, have not taken a set against San Domenico. His trial yesterday was. faultless and. he proved he can icoper, with the heavy track. Several horses which had been declared unlikely , starters, 'because rain had held up theh: preparation, may run now their trainers have an extra - week. Tw...
