WHAT'S IN ITS NAME? AND THE LADY STOLE A KISS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
WHAT'S IN ITS NAME? ¡AND THE LADY STOLE A KISS "OOMANCE and histoiy cling .*-*- to maru n.imes in Svdnev Harbour but to none moie closely than Kissinu Poini which runs I into the Pairamatta River fiom the I I R\de- shore, opposite Mortlake. A favourite resort for picnick- ers last century1, from Governor 1 Hunters day, its name has come down to us enmeshed in a tangle of legend. Most popular is the story that Governor Hunter and a picnic party were being rowed upstream when the boat stranded on a reef. Hunter, with British gallantry, insisted on carrying the ladies ashore, saluting the last one with a kiss. An even more romantic tale is that, during the picnic. Hunter fell asleep after lunch. Mrs. Patterson, an adventurous lady, slipped up and kissed him, so that she could claim, the for- feit of a pair of glove^. But more sober historians in- -line to the belief that Kissing Point was given its name because passing boats, taking short cuts, bumped or "kissed" the rocks, which exten...

MODEL AIRCRAFT PART II—PROPELLER OF YOUR "WREN" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
MODEL AIRCRAFT PART n -PROPELLER OF YOUR "WREN" T^HE job of carving the propel 1er of a plane often stumps the would-be model builder, but with a little practice it is easy. Of course, ready carved pro- pellers can be bought, but first try making your own. Carve two or three, and use the best one. Choose a block of hard, straight-grained balsa 7in by Un by tin thick and pencil the out- lines on the broad face (fig. 1). Then accurately cut away the shaded portions with a small saw, and push a pinhole through the exact centre. You do the actual carving with a freshly sharpened penknife. Razor blades are no good. Carve one edge first, then turn the block around and do the op- posite edge. Take small shavings until you gain confidence, and work each blade down to a flat surface, run- ning right back to the dotted lines (fig. 2). Now take a piece of sandpaper, wrap it around a cork and smooth off the carved portions, rubbing a slight hollow into each face, so that it will "grip" the air....
STAMPS ANNIVERSARY STAMPS The Stampman adds the letter "E" to your alphabet. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
STAMPS ANNIVERSARY STAMPS The Stampman adds the letter "E" to your alphabet. THE two stamps issued by Bri- tain to commemorate the sil- ver wedding anniversary of King George and Queen Elizabeth have I caused more contioveisy than any other stamp issue. The stamps cost 2id and £ 1. j Collectors consider the £. 1 stamp | much too expensive. Crown Colonies' stamps cele- brating the anniversary,. are also highly priced. Two arc being printed for each colony, one at a low and the other at a high value. A complete set will cost you approximately £65. A set of the' low values only will cost about £1.

It is based on a photograph by Dorothy Wilding Portraits Ltd., and produced by Waterlow and Sons, Ltd. i The stamp was printed by pho- togravure process. -THE STAMPMAN
ODD FACTS HORSE SHOD WITH GOLD [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
I QPP FACTS HORSE SHOD WITH GOLD A/f EMORIES of the gold *?**? rushes were recalled by the finding of a golden horseshoe at Redbridge. Queensland. The shoe is believed to be a relic of the quaint whim of Ah Chong, a wealthy Chinese merchant, who shod his horses with gold-plated shoes for the Wombat races. The first record of a golden horseshoe having been used in Australia is.in 1856. A Mr. Cameron, storekeeper at El Dorado, rode into Beechworth. Victoria, on a horse which was shod with golden shoes. Each shoe weighed 7 1/5 oz. Mr. Cameron later became a member of the Victorian Legisla- tive Assembly. -BILL BEATTY

Alleged Purge Of Czech UNO Officials From OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Alleged Purge Of Czech UNO Officials From OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT NEW YORK, Feb. 26.-The Czechoslovakian Communist Government has successfully brought pressure to bear on the UNO Secretary-General, JVfr. Trygve Lie, to discharge a batch of Czech employees at UNO. The former chief Czechoslova kian delegate to UNO, Mr. Jan Papanek, made this charge to-day. He said the dismissed Czechs were anti-Communist. UNO observers pointed out that Mr. Papanck's charge was significant, because UNO em- ployees are "international civil servants" whose position did not depend on their politics or rela- tions with their home govern- ments. The observers say the Czech Government feared that the anti Communists would join the Coun- cil for a Free Czechoslovakia, formed recently in New York. It is composed of leading anti Communist exiles in the various Western countries. If many of the Czech UNO employees voluntarily joined the council it would have im- mense anti-Communist propa- ganda value. By securi...

BRITAIN MAY LOSE AID Penalty Of Prosperity WASHINGTON, February 26 (A.A.P.).-The Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday oudered a public review of the proposed recovery grant to Britain of 940 million dollars (£A300 million). The grant is included in the bill dealing with the next 15 months of Marshall Aid.

Mayhew, had said at UNO on Wednesday that Britain was well on the way to economic re- covery. The Foreign Relations Com- mittee has summoned Mr. Paul Hoffman, who is Marshall Plan administrator, to explain the "wide discrepancies" in the esti- mates of British recovery. The chairman of the commit- tee, Senator Tom Connally (De- mocrat, Texas), said members were determined to allot funds for foreign aid only "when needed and dircly needed." The British Ambassador to Washington, Sir Oliver Franks, said yesterda...

A.L.P. Move Against Communists [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
A.L.P. Move Against Communists Delegates to the annual conference of the industrial groups of the Australian Labour Party will discuss an A.L.P. offensive against Com- munist infiltration, in the Unions.

Win To Celebrate Anniversary [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Win To Celebrate Anniversary -* Almost a year to the day after his first success in open company, Trover scored a runaway win in the Flying Handicap at Canterbury yesterday. His victory over a field which, included some top-line performers was perhaps the most striking of his career. Trainer R. C. Stanton said later that, although Trover was slow compared with some of the horses he had trained, he was KO honest he expected him to win more i races. Trover started at 50-1 when tit dead-heated with Brazier in the Moorefield Flying on February 21 last year, when ridden by apprentice R. Selkrig. Ridden by Selkrig again yes- terday, Trover, starting at 9-1, was one of the best backed horses in the race. Stanton said Trover was fully a second slower over six furlongs thn'n Holdfast, Silver Rose, and Rodborough, with whom he won good races years ago. /. Honest Horse , Trover, however, was a par- ticularly honest horse, and he hoped and expected tb win more races with him. Trover's task was ...
