"STOP" SIGNALS FOR TRAMS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
"STOP" SIGNALS FOR TRAMS » The N.R.M.A. has asked the Commissioner for Road Trans- port, Mr. Neale, to equip all trams with automatic "stop" sig nais. These signals would enable motorists following trams to have a precise indication of the inten- tion of the tram driver, and thus prevent many accidents. The association told Mr. Neale that it was an anomaly that trams were not forced to signal their intention to stop, while other vehicles were forced legally to do so.

Chicago Still Crime Centre [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Chicago Still Crime Centre TVTÎW YORK.-In Chicago, ?L^i 20 years ago, Al Capone's gang lined up seven rival gang- sters against the wall of a garage, and mowed them down with machine-gun fire. According to the reports of an independent investigator, pub- lished last week, Chicago is still the centre of the "world's organised crimes. But the days when harmless civilians as well as criminals had to dodge machine-gun bullets m the streets have gone-or almost gone. . . . T^HE cheque-book has replaced * the tommy-gun as the crim- inal's main weapon. To the gangster of to-day, murder is bad public relations. So vast is the income from illegal enterprises in U.S. that pro- fits can no longer be invested in bigger rackets. The racketeers have moved in on legitimate busi- ness enterprises. . The Number One industry of organised crime is gambling. Nearly all the beer barons of prohibition days have made gambling their present-day busi- ness. They own chains of race- tracks, distribute nationa...

PODMORE HURT IN RACE CRASH When Alabama Queen stumbled near the three furlongs at Canter- bury yesterday she caused the fall of four other horses.

COMMENT BY THE SPORTS STAFF [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
COMMENT «V THF. SPORTS STAFF ONCE noted far its out cricket, New South Wales this season was one of the weakest fielding sides in the Sheffiield Shield competition. Point of greatest weakness, as in every season since the war, was at slip. Apart from Keith Miller, no specialist was regularly as- signed to slip positions until the final Shield match against South Australia. Ron James then showed that many of the chances which used to fly past the late stretched hand of second slip could be taken by an alert ex- pert at short gully. N.S.W. seems to have de- veloped an unfortunate habit of "resting" bowlers at slip, re- gardless of their qualification for the post. It is no place to "rest" if filled properly. The strain of unremitting concentration is likely to take more out of a bowler than a chase to the boundary from point or some other non-specialist position. * * * rpHE Australian Swimming J- Union fought vigorously to get Forbes Carlile to the Olympic Games as the swim« ming team...

Plaited Head Straps Are Key To Owner -.-. - ; Horses prepared by the Randwick trainer, Keith Duggan, are always easy to recognise by' their forehead. Straps. It is Duggan's practice to cover with plaited ribbons the forehead straps, which are always in the colours of the owner rep- resented. Erpingham's forehead strap yesterday was of pale blue and dark blue, the colours of owner, Mr. F. J. Robertson. Horses owned by Mr. Ezra Norton carried his colours-red and yellow-across the forehead.
FLYING COLLIERS LOSE THEIR GRIME [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
FLYING COLLIERS LOSE THEIR GRIME fBy our Aviation Correspondent, who flew to the U.S. last week on die inaugural flight of B.C.P.A.'s j new DC6 airliner.) At Oakland Airport, near San Francisco's picturesque Golden Gate Harbour, four engined flying freighters from the Berlin airlift are queucing-up for re-fitting and general "face lifting" operations. Despite their unkempt appear- ance, they are the glamour planes of the airport. They have won the title of "Metal Angels With Dirty Faces." These Skymasters, or flying col- liers as they are sometimes called, have been carrying huge quanti- ties of coal to Berlin from the | Allied-controlled zones of Europe. They are so badly stained by black dust and soot that it is un- necessary to ask if they have been carrying coal. In the past few months they have flown hundreds of thousands of miles carrying fuel to shiver- ing Berlin householders. When I arrived at Oakland Airport last Monday with Mr. John Ulm. son of the late pioneer airman, Ch...

Natives Strike Over Lack Of Lava Lavas [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Natives Strike Over Lack Of Lava Lavas * CANBERRA, Saturday. - Thirty New Guinea natives went on strike because their issue of lava lavas (skirts) was less- than the pre-war issue and they were not,provided with other pre-war amenities such as Christmas gifts and "sing sing." This is revealed in the report to the United Nations Assembly on the administration of New Guinea. ' Odd facts in the 202-page re- port include a description by a patrol officer of an initiation cere- mony in the Sepik district. The ceremony ended with the initiate being flogged with pieces of wire, timber, and rope in the belief that the more he suffered the stronger he would be later. The patrol officer added "Some initiates who had previously ap- peared to be brash and flighty youths are now quiet, solid citi- zens.
Italian Migrants Wait For Ships [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Italian Migrants Wait For Ships .-» CANBERRA, Saturday.-"Great numbers" of Italians were waiting to immigrate to Australia, the new Italian Minister said to-day. He is Don Giulio Del Balzo Dei Duchi Di Presenzano, who arrived in Australia early this month. Don Giulio is the first ex-enemy diplomat to come here since the end of the war. He presented his credentials to the Governor-General. Mr. W. J. McKcil, last Wednesday. "WANT TO COME" Don Giulio said that Italian migrants were being held up by lack of shipping., He would see the Minister for Immigration, Mr. A. A. Calwell, probably next week to see if addi tional transportation could be arranged.

"Italians want to come to Aus- tralia because of the excellent working, economic, and social conditions."

CITY BLOCK SOLD New Warehouse Area By Our Building Reporter. The sale this week of a whole block in the southern city area shows a trend by warehouse in- terests to seek more room. The block, in Ultimo, south of Darling Harbour goodsyards and not far from Broadway, is boun- ded by Jones, Mary Ann, Mac- arthur, and McKce Streets. Mr. F. A. Faulkner, the pur- chaser, is principal of the import- ing firm of Jordan and Moss. He said last week that he pro- poses eventually to build bulk warehouses on the site, which at present has about ¿0 houses and a shop. It is 530ft by 90ft. Land values are going too high in the present warehousing area around York Street," Mr. Faulk- ner said. "I anticipate a considerable shift of warehousing to the dis- trict south of the Darling Harbour railway yards."
MIGRANT SHIP ARRIVES [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
MIGRANT SHIP ARRIVES The first new Italian ship to reach Australia since the war, the Ugalino Vivaldi, arrived in Sydney yesterday. The Ugalino Vivaldi brought 800 migrants to Australia, most of them Italians. Among the 216 passengers for Sydney were 58 migrants from Communist-controlled countries in Europe-mainly Hungary and Czechoslovakia. None of them would give their names, because they feared rela- tives they left behind would suffer because of their statements. A chartered accountant, who bribed Communist officials to get out of Czechoslovakia, said .that even women there were being arrested if they could not show workers' cards.
