Sir Donald's Farewell Appearance By OUR SPECIAL REPORTER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Sir Donald's Farewell Appearance By OUR SPECIAL REPORTER A gale of wild cheering stormed from all sections of the crammed Sydney Cricket Ground when Sir Dpnald Bradman walked through the players' gate at exactly 2.44 p.m. yesterday. i Sir Donald was going out to bat in his farewell match, the Oldfield-Kippax Testi- monial, Before it was his turn to bat, I watched him looking at the play from behind the glassed enclosure in the pavilion. Now and then his eyes would turn from the field of younger men to the packed Hill and the stands as if he was remembering something. He was not smiling at all yet his lips were a straight line-only his deep, thoughtful eyes spoke of the things in his mind. Then he was standing up, pull- ing on a glove, reaching for his bat. Morris, the man just out, touched his cap as he walked into the pavilion. STORM BROKE Sir Donald stepped into view, and that's when the storm broke. Sir Donald smiled. He walked slowly down I through the clapping and back- ' slaps...

Gas Until Tuesday; Coal Board Moves [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Gas Until, Tuesday; Coal Board Moves The Joint Coal Board yesterday assured the Aus- tralian Gas Light Co. of enough coal to carry it. through Monday. A spokesman for the company said it already had enough on hand to last over the week-end. On Monday the board would provide 1,500 tons, which would last until Tuesday, he said. This would ensure continuous supplies of gas from the com- pany until then. The general manager of the North Shore Gas Company, Mr. A. H. Smedley, said last night his company had enough coal to seo it through until Tuesday night. A Joint Coal Board spokesman said that if the strike continued the board should be able to supply 6,000 tons of gas-coal a day.., This would come from nins mines not affected by the strike. It would be divided proportion- ately among New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia, and it would be just enough to allow the gas companies to scrape through, he said. In the meantime, the strike of salaried officers on the South Maitland fie...

MORRIS PASSES THOUSAND [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
MORRIS PASSES THOUSAND Arthur Morris scored the nine runs to give him 1,000 runs in an Aus- tralian season for the second time in his com- paratively short career. He went on to make a dash- ing 66 in an hour and a half. There were other important features of a highly interesting day's play. Jack Moroney played a most impressive opening batsman's innings, and is 128 not out. He has consolidated his claims to a place among Australia's 14 for the South African tour next cummer. Early in the day. Victorian .low bowler Doug Ring and Ray Lindwall had cleaned up the opposing team's innings. Alan Walker was the most impressive bowler for Hassett's Eleven, even though he failed to take a wicket. Dominant Figure But Bradman was the domi- nant personality on the arena yesterday, and the great crowd was intent on every ball while he batted, for 42 minutes before afternoon tça and 23 minutes after the interval. I have witnessed many memor- able scenes in which Bradman has been the central figur...
More Than £3,000 As Likely Share For Each [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
More Than £3,000 Ás Likely Share For Each Examination of the finances of the Testimonial match shows that there is already in sight the sum of ¿£2,500 each for the two beneficiaries, Alan Kippax and Bert Oldfield. With further donations, and with fine weather anti- cipated for the two remain- ing days of the match, the amount for each beneficiary ' may be increased to more than £3,000. Gate takings yesterday were £3.348/14/9, making a total for the two days of £3.808/1/6. From this. approximately £600 for entertainment tax has to be deducted. I Expenses of staging the match arc estimated at £600. .This makes the balance from takings now approximately £2,600. Donations and outside ticket sales are expected soon to reach a total of £2,000. Thus, a balance of £4,600 foi division between the two bene- ficiaries is in sight, with proceeds from last night's 2GB concert, and two days "gates" to come. Lord Nuffield has given £100 I to the testimonial fund.
Moroney's Innings Helps Selectors [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Moroney's Innings Helps Selectors By W. J. O'Reilly The Australian selectors, faced with one of the most difficult jobs of work they have had for years, in choosing the 14 players to tour South Africa, had things simplified considerably yesterday by the performances of Moroney, Ring and Walker. With Barnes and Brown unavailable for tour selec- tion, the task of choosing an opening partner for Morris, must have caused them some concern. Burke, Mculeman, and Moroney were regarded as contenders for the position. On a slow, easy-paced pitch yesterday, Moroney batted splen- didly. At the s'tart of his innings he showed momentary unceitainty when facing the new-ball overs from Walker. But, apart from one or two hopeful stabs at the off-side ball, he did nothing to suggest that he is not capable of filling the vac- ancy with great credit. Moroney is a very sound on side player; he hits the on-drivo belter, perhaps, than any bats- man in the game to-day. Strong on-side play is an essen- tia...

CHESS: By G. Koslmitsky [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
CHESS: By G. Koslmitsky IN the recent Australian championship in Melbourne, the winner, C. J. S. Purdy, played very sound chess, i He kept finding good moves even in the most difficult posi- tions and his 13 games were practically free from errors. Yet he had one off day. Jt happened in the ninth round, when t his opponent was the former Middlesex and N.S.W Champion, M. E. Goldstein. Purdy played the opening weakly, and he did it against the wrong man. x Once Gold- stein had the upper hand, he' never let up. The champion, aware of the danger, (ried to confuse the issue by creating complications, but this only hastened his doom. DUTCH DEFENCE Wnitc Black C. J. S. Purdy M. E. Goldstein (N.S.W.) (N.S.W.) 1.
