V.A.T.C. CARNIVAL Australian Hurdles LESS THAN 10 HORSES MELBOURNE, Today. [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
V,A,TC. CARNIVAL -4--- Australian Hurdles LESS THAN 10 HORSES (By Our Special Representative.) MELBOURNE, Today. The stage is set for the iir-t big meet ing of the racing new yeac in the V.A.T.C. jumong carnival. Tomorrow will be the first occasion since the es tablishmment of the race in 1882-when James Scobie won on Rhesus--that less than 10 horses have gone to the post for the Australian Hurdle Race. The high water mark was reached in 1S91 when YaTbba defeated 19 opponents. Tabba was owned by the uncle of TV. H. Mc Lachlan, the well-known jockey. An interesting fact in connection with the horses engaged tomorrow is that five of the eight aspirants competed in the Grand National Hurdle Race last month. Three of them, in Berrinbo, Bendcc, and Jackstaff were placegetters. The opportunity of seeing how these horses will shape under alterel condi tions as regards weight and over a dis tance nearly half a mile greater than that at headquarters will appeal to lovers of jumping. It is ev...
BRIDGE TO BIRKENHEAD Port Opinion On Proposal [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
BRIDGE TO BIRKENHEAD 'Port Opinion On Proposal Recent mention in Parlianmcnt that the Government has asked the Harbcrs Board to report on the idea of a bridge across the Port River to B3irkenhead was noted with much interest at the sea port, for the question of swift com munication with that portion of Lefevre Peninsula is of ever-growing serious ness. Prominent importers state that such a bridge would save a haul of over two miles for goods intended for the Port proper and landed at B3irkenhead wharfs; while the ever-increasing num ber of factories, such as the superphos phate, cement, plaster, and oil works, in addition to a flour midll, shows that the ?.district has a great manufacturing fiutire. The roundabout route now used, by way of Glanville and across Jcrvois Bridge, owing to the bad roads encoun tered and the steepness of the approach to Hart street bridge over the Sema- phore railway, limits the weight of loads in such a manner as to render the carriage utmprofitable to c...

Easy Marks [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
Easy Marks The value of the mark contlnues to depreciate. Germany still keps up the wholesale issue of paper marks, of which two trillion are being pl-ntcd daily without sign of abatement. Does anyone cry for the German? The weepers are scarce, you can bet. Though the sauerkraut boys make a terrible noise, Still the Allies are loth to forget. The mark is a bad proposition; Five million are worth just a quid. And the sun doesn't shine any more on Rhine . For the place by its banknotes is hid. A penny is worth twenty thousand; And Fritzie who rides on a tram Miust unload quite a heap. though the traffice is cheap; So no wonder he splutters a damn. Hans goes for his piay on a Friday, And piles it all up on a cart. I-Ie calls his old frau, and they push it somehow To their home in a jerry-built cart. The butcher gets three or four million To square up his bill for the meat. And the baker they'll pay just a million, we'll say, For th~ price of the bread they must eat. The Huln lifts a ye...

It Will Work Once [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
It Will Work Once Jones was an ardent motorisrt, and it takes a motorist to think.of a scheme like this. Owning a six-cylinder car, it was naturral that Jones often exceeded the 'p~eed limit. But Jones was a canny man and he generally managed to spot the various police traps and slow down. iHe even managed to avoid a penalty when he was fairly caught. He kne(w that hisr number had been taken for speeding. iHe ran his bus along a side lane, walked home, and notified the police dtation that his car had been stolen during the morn :~r. Jones rec,,vered his eart ard escaped without paying the penalty. But such a trick works only once. 0 *

FIREMAN'S DAY Not All Beer and Skittles FURNACE OF DISCIPLINE [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
FIREMAN'S DBAY Not AllI Beer and Skittles FURNACE OF DISCIPLINE Mfany people nurse the idea that a fireman's life consists mainly in loung ing about the station waiting for an alarm. They are wrong. The fireman is a fireman first and a tradesman of standing secondly. He goes through a rigorous discipline and is always on his job. When the first bell clangs clearly in the morning he has no time to take another few snores. He gets out to be on parade at 7. For half an hour allhands are engaged in physical drill. ' Sunday does not see the rule dispensed with. Probationers go to the drill class, where they are put through the ropes. There are hoses to be handled, smoke helmets to be understood, picket drill, and rescue work to be gone through, and all manner of ladders to practise on. After drill general routine has to be faced. The carpenter goes to his shop behind the station, the painter and the smith and the electrician, the cook and the grooms, and the motor experts--these have ple...
