CONJURING THIS PAPER TRICK IS DONE "BY ATOMIC ATTRACTION" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
CONJURING THIS PAPER TRICK IS DONE "BY ATOMIC ATTRACTION" I, HAVE seen this trick done be *? fore big audiences and it al- ways goes over well. You need nothing more than a small piece of paper such as a tram ticket. HOW IT LOOKS: The paper slip is shown to the audience in the finger-tips q£ the right hand. The left hand is then brought across and the slip torn in two, into four and fin- ally into eight pieces. While this act ton is carried out the magician asks someone to do the multiplication thus: "Twice two, four; twice four, eight"; and so on. The scraps are now crumpled 1 into a small pellet, which is placed i in the palm of the right hand. Making a few magic passes over this hand the conjurer says: "It's all done by magnetism and atomic attraction." He thereupon dips his len, thumb and forefinger into the right hand and draws forth the paper intact in one piece again! THE SECRET: Unseen by the audience an identical ticket or paper strip is concealed in the palm of the con- ju...
SPORT FAST BOWLER SWINGS THE NEW BALL [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
SPORT FAST BOWLER SWINGS THE NEW BALL By W. J. O'REILLY rî leg-break and the off * .jreak are tricks of the trade which belong to the slower types ol' bowlers. If von bowl vour off-break at your very fastest pace you will find that the ball goes straight through and does not "break" at all. The reason for this is that the ball gets up off the pitch so quickly that the spinning move- ment has no time to operate upon «he pitch. There is no time for i.it to "grip." Therefore, you will understand that fast bowlers must forget "breaks," and cultivate another trick to rid themselves of bats- men. It is possible for a bowler to make the ball change direction whilst it is still in the air. When the ball is bowled at the middle stump and, before it lands on the pitch, moves away towards the off stump, the trick performed is described as an "out-swinger." The strange thing about swing is that it works in exactly the opposite way from spin. The ball which "swings out" must be spin- ning clockw...
Conspiracy To Start French Revolt Reported COMMUNISTS ACCUSED [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Conspiracy To Start French] Revolt Reported COMMUNISTS ACCUSED LONDON, Feb. 26 (A.A.P.).-The French War Minister, M. Ramadier, yesterday charged the central committee of the French Communist Party with having tried to incite the Army to revolt. He filed a complaint alleging this with the Ministry of Justice. Correspondents say the French Government is considering legal action against all 84 members of the French Communist Party's politbureau. The French Premier, Dr. Henri Queuille, said yesterday that if the Russians crossed the Rhine, fifth-columnists would seize control of government, and fear of self-destruction would immobilise the mass of the civilian population.
Candid Comment... By ONLOOKER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
(Candid (Comment . . . By ONLOOKER 1 A WAY for six months, here ?^"- for six weeks, Dr. Evatt has taken off for London again -his tenth trip in seven years. This rushing around the world is a wearing business, but "The Doe" may not be sorry to shake Canberra's dust off his shoes this time. It can't have been a very happy visit, one way and another. Sometimes he must feel more at home abroad than at home. Over- seas he is courted and flattered; here he has to listen to criticism, play safe in Caucus even to the side- tracking of his liberal principles. In London, Attorney-General Evatt will appear before the Privy Council in the banking case. Report is that the Government, having won leave to,appeal, expects a favourable verdict, but is not sure about the next moves, has abandoned hope of getting the whole unpopular business tidied up before the election. From London External Affairs Minister Evatt will set course for New York and UNO, his spiritual home. Not Our Affair /^iNE had hop...
Everything Against The Divers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Everything Against The Divers I FROM FRANK TIERNEY BRISBANE, Saturday. - Divers battled with wind, rain, dogs, and other dis- turbing elements in the national titles at Morning- side Quarry to-day. One of the worst gestures was the continual breaking of concen- tration by remarks and laughter of a group of youths near the tower. Dogs suddenly appeared on the board as divers. Youths swimming in the quarry also were troublesome. Referee Len .Warner, of Vic- toria, thrcatcned'to send a police- man out in a boat to remove them. '. . Several times he appealed for quietness by the crowd, which seemed to be attracted to the quarry more from curiosity than understanding of the need to give the divers a chance to compete without distractions. The wind was so strong early in the afternoon that the two div- ing judge's boats drifted, and positions had to be abandoned. It affected the flight of divers, and caused weeks of careful prac- tice to be ruined. Once. Lana Robertson, of Syd- ney, was t...

Even Pace Would Cut Times [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Even Pace Would Cut Times BY FORBES CARLILE BRISBANE, Saturday. - Australian champion John Marshall would im- prove on his times if he I swam at a more even I pace. Marshall last Tuesday won the Australian 400 metres title in 4m 50.5s. Sectional times were:-100 metres, lm 3.6s; 200 metres, 2m 17s; 300 metres, 3m 33.4s. The time for the 300 metres broke the Australian, record, but Marshall then slowed down to take lm 17.1s for the final 100 metres. \ He was tired from too great an early effort. At the Olympic Games John's 400 metres took 4m 47.7s, and his time- for the first 100 metres was> 66.4s. For" more than 25 years physi- ologist Professor Frank Cotten. former N.S.W. champion swim- mer, has advocated that a swim- mer or a runner should perform at an even pace throughout. Before the Olympic Games in London. Nancy Lyons, Marjory' McQuade, John Davies, Judy Joy Davies and Denise Spence! were in my immediate care. Each swam at a more even pace than ever before. They re- gistered...
Marshall Feted After Brilliant Sprint Success [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Marshall Feted After Brilliant Sprint Success From Frank Tierney BRISBANE, Saturday.-John Marshall was car- ried shoulder high round the Valley Baths to-night after he had won the Australian 100 metres freestyle title. . ' ' Marshall won by half a yard in 60.3s from Bruce Bourke and Garry Taylor. Marshall later won the 800 metres championship by 55 yards. By winning all five senior freestyle titles, Marshall equalled the per- formance of Sir Frank Beaurepaire. The scene, strange to Aus- tralian swimming onlookers and officials, was Victoria's way of showing its apprecia- tion of Marshall's great win. Added to the joy of Victorian officials was the knowledge that Marshall's win practically ensured retention of the Keiran Shield symbol of interstate competition for most wins at the national car- nival. The win of Marshall consum- mated a wish he expressed on the Strathaird when returning from the Olympic Games. Apart from one race at Ade SWIM TITLES Men 100 Metre« Junior Backstroke-R ...
ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTIONS WE DUG OUT A SWIMMING POOL [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTIONS WE DUG OUT A SWIMMING POOL \X TE had a lot of fun last holi * * days digging a swimming pool in the grounds of our new home. Operations started on j New Year's Day with much en- thusiasm. First the site of the pool was marked out. ,It is 30 feet by eight feet. After digging for some time we reached a depth of three feet and found a piece of iron sticking out from the side of the pool. When we had dug all around it we were amazed to find a bedstead. Excavating further we found thiee more bedsteads, a spoon, many bricks and a china egg. Soon after we struck the shale and digging grew harder. When we awoke next morning we found it had been pouring j with rain. We looked out of the window down at the pool to see it half full Our hearts sank David and I bailed out all the water We did not finish till lunch time That afternoon we had a sleep Can you imagine our dismay when we awoke next morning to find it raining cats and dogs and the swimming pool half lull again' ...
