BOWLING IS MOST INTERESTING BRANCH OF CRICKET Introduce Competitive Spirit into Practice Concentrate on Batsman's Weaknesses "ATTACK, AND KEEP ON ATTACKING" IS CLARRIE GRIMMETTS ADVICE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

BOWLING IS MOST INTERESTING BRANCH OF CRICKET Introduce Competitive Spirit into Practice Concentrate on Batsman's Weaknesses "ATTACK, AND KEEP ON ATTACKING" IS CLARRIE GRIM METTS ADVICE Bowling is often regarded merely as a tiresome but neces- sary adjunct to batting in cricket, and among young players and in the lower grades bowlers are given little inducement to become proficient in that branch of the game. C.V. Grimmett, the international slow bowler, believes that by the introduction of less mechanical methods of practice, and a closer study of the art of bowling by the bowler himself, the younger generation may be made to realise that bowling is really the most interesting part of the game. Grimmett explains an idea he has evolved, "which, if put into practice by schools and clubs which cater for the younger players, will, he claims, give budding bowlers an incentive to master length and direction, without which no player can hope for success in this most important sphere of cr...

Cut among the People [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

Cut among the Peop le By Rufus. THE cable from Paris in "The Adver- tiser" yesterday, stating that Pro- fessor Wieland Mayr contended there was a distinct link between the works of ultra-modern artists and those painted by lunatics reminded me of an amusing incident which happened in Adelaide. An impressionist picture was purchased by the National Gallery, rhe late li. A. Jessop criticised it in scath ing terms. Mr. Talbot Smith remarked, "If you look at it long enough it will grow on you." Mr. Jessop rejoined, "If it grew on me I would amputate it." From Volunteer to Acconntant "\fR- William Jeffrey, the accountant ?"*- at the Gi>.O, will leave on Saturday to take up a similar position in Brisbane. Yesterday morning I had an interesting I chat with Mr. Jeffrey and the '< Deputy Director of Posts and; Telegranhs (Mr. E. P. Ramsay). Mr. Jeffrey said, "I already fiel or. sood terms with you, because Arch deacon Whitington married me in i Hobart in 1896, and we have been ...

FIFTY YEARS AGO FROM "THE ADVERTISER" OF FEBRUARY 27, 1881 [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

FIFTY YEARS AGO FROM "THE ADVERTISER" OF FEBRUARY 27, 1881 Although the Orange Free State is allowing the passage of British troops through its ter- ritory, the Volksraad has passed ritory, the passed a vote of sympathy with the Boers in their struggle for in dependence. The South Australian Gov ernment's proposal to remit Custom duties by £50,000, and to impose a property tax of a half penny in the pound to make up for the loss in revenue, is oc casioning keen debate. The world is governed too much. The New South Wales Education Department has issued circular letters to bache lor teachers in certain up-coun try schools, informing them that if they fail to marry "within a reasonable time" they will be removed, and married teachers appointed in their place. Complaining of dear farm machinery, a correspondent ad | vocates the starting of a farmers* implement factory. That, he declares, would be a big factoi in lifting the man on the land out of his present state of semi-insolvency. hi...

BUSINESS IN BILLIARDS PROFESSIONALS EARN THEIR MONEY [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

BUSINESS IN BILLIARDS PROFESSIONALS EARN THEIR MONEY (Author of "Billiards: The Strokes of the Game" and "Billiards for the Million.") No. 9. By RISO LEVI The tournament in which Lin drum, McConachy, Joe Davis, and Xewman took part this season was played on tables covered with a cotton cloth. Not very long ago New man stated In a London news paper that this cloth might be made the standard cloth for all championship games. It may be asked why did tte above four great cuemen play on a cotton cloth this season instead of on the usual superfine West of England wool len cloth. The answer is that it is just a question of business, that is, of finan cial considerations, -with professionals as to what make of table or cloth they play on, and that they are always quite ready to hire themselves to the firms which offer the best terms for their services As is well known, Willie Smith has been for many years under contract to play only on one make of table, and last season Ltn drum and McConac...

Women Out of Doors SPORT IN THE TROPICS TENNIS ON MUD COURTS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

Women Out of Doors SPORT IN THE TROPICS TENNIS ON MUD COURTS (By Beefee) Adelaide women in Egypt and the Malay Straits take their sport seriously, but not strenuously, and care more for the social side of things than exercise or physical culture. Opportunity to take the air at an altitude of a few thousand feet is no: -afforded the wives of officers in the Air Force Squadron stationed at Egypt. In fact, social flying is not permitted even were the womenfolk so minded. Mrs. A. H. Flower, formerly Miss Joan Whitby, of Glenelg, is paying a visit to her mother, Mrs. N. S. Whitby, with her husband, Flight-Lieutenant Flower, of the Air Force Squadron in Heliopolis, where flying is kept strictly to the business of training in army co operation and other military tactics. Wives have to be up and doing almost at the break o' day, for the Air Force starts work at a quarter to five each morning. The womenfolk attend to their house management until mid-day —although it is mostly supervision and...

LOST RING FOUND Missing Eighteen Years Kingston-on-Murray, February 22. Mr. R.J. Whittingham, of North Adelaide, on Christmas Day, 1912, lost a gold ring inset with a large New Zealand blue stone, a gift from his brother before he left his home in Vic toria. It was lost while Mr. Whitting ham was playing in a game of cricket at the old Kingston cricket pitch. Since then he has served several years at the war, and resided in various localities with his wife and family. Owing to being unemployed, he returned to Kingston in November to do some lumping at the railway siding for the| pool representative. Recently he noticed a ring similar to his on the finger of Mr. T. Rogers, late of England, now residing in Kingston, and ascertained that the ring had been found at the old cricket pitch during practice about last Christmas. He was delighted when the ring was safely re-i turned in perfect condition. '

RAIN SAVES HOMES Men Helpless Before Midnight Fire FRESH OUTBREAKS QUELLED Light rain about 4 a.m. followed by heavier showers, and the sub- siding of the wind, was all that saved many properties from ex- tinction at Prospect Hill and Bull's Creek early yesterday morning, when 200 or more men were fight ing rasing flames, which had jumped the breaks, burnt daring the night. The fire was thought to be in hand by 1150 on Wednesday night, but a northerly wind suddenly switched round to north-west and grew stronger. Increasing from a front of a mile and a half, the fire got closer and closer to homesteads at Bull's Creek and Prospect Hill, and residents made ready to move out at a moment's no tice. Men were falling out of the fight, some exhausted after almost con tinuous battling for 24 hours, and others overcome by smoke. Midnight 'Phone Alarms The telephone exchange at Prospect Hill kept open all night, and from there and Meadows telephone girls were sending out messages for help int...

In ways Oriental, his processes mental Work out; And. striving to follow, we finally wallow In doubt. He may be dread master of doom and disaster. Or loom in the land, as its lore front and head. To lead a whole nation to final salvation— Then, again, he may not. For there's no one knows Ted. By C. J. Dennis They've boosted and boomed him for years and foredoomed him To fame.
