From P"addock To P untler (By Harry Quigley.) Ere another issue of "The Argus" comes flying over your front fence, the 1950 Melbourne Cup will have been run and more than a few wise old owls will be repeating: "? told you so." Such is the glamor associatea with the Melbourne Cup that for a quarter of as. hour on the first Tuesday in November each year everything must come to.a standstill while Australia awaits the momentous verdict.

Jubilee Celebration Committee Formed The importance of Parramatta in the Federation Jubilee Cele brations next year was stress ed by the Mayor (Alderman E. A. Mobbs) at a public meet ing last week. The meeting was convened by the Mayor 'to discuss participa tion in the Jubilee, and was suggested by Parramatta Chami ber of Commerce. "Parramatta is a city in its own right, and no longer a suburb of Sydney," Alderman Mobbs said. "We will join with others in joy and rejoicing, but let us have something essentially our own, something befitting Parra matta, a centre of great histori cal importance and the cradle of Australian civilisation." Alderman Mobbs said there was no reason why Parramatta should not have an annual "Back to Parramatta Week"... -'Grafton with its Jacaranda Festival and other towns of less importance than our city can show us a lead in this regard;" he said. "Perhaps we could also have celebrations in connection with the Wistaria . Fete. Such events would not only be g...
