Compact Swing Aids Golf Accuracy [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Compact Swing Aids Golf Accuracy Hooks, Slices! X^'ñ" Ossie Pickwoith demonstrates correct stances and grips for the straight iron shot (left), the regu- lated hook shot (centre), and the regulated sliced shot (right). The white dots show the line of- stance; the black line shows the initial flight of the ball. For the straight shot the feet are square to the site of the ball; the V's formed by each thumb and palm are in line along the shaft. In the hooked shot the right foot is drawn slightly back, and die right hand is drawn under the shaft. This causes the player to grip the club with the palm of the right hand instead of the lingers, giving twice as much power to the right hand as to the left in the execution of the stroke. In the slice the right foot is brought forward of the left. The right hand is taken over the top of the shaft, and the right wrist is locked. This gives the left hand predominant power in the execution of the shots. By H. "OSSIE" PICKWORTH The calendar of my ...
Australia's Lack Of Heavyweights [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Australia's Lack Of Heavyweights By JACK MUNRO DURING the past 25 years I have been amazed at the gradual decline in the standard of Australian heavy weight boxers. Yet 30 years ago Australia provided top-line heavyweights comparable with the world's best. What is the reason for the pre- sent-day lack of interest by big men in Australian boxing? Is it because the Australian of big stature has become' a more easy-going man. slow to anger? As such, he is not attracted to boxing? I have asked promoters, mana- gers, trainers, and followers of the sport, but they have failed to supply any other convincing answer. I have spoken to medical men, who supplied statistics to prove that Australia now breeds men two inches taller and propor- tionately heavier than it did 30 or 40 years ago. Golden Era Yet 40 years ago Australian heavyweights were so popular that they were matched against each other in English and Ameri- can rings. . - - An outstanding era for heavy " weights began with coloured ...
MULLEY STARS IN CAPETOWN RACING FROM A SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT IN CAPETOWN [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
MULLEY STARS IN CAPETOWN RACING Sydney jockey Athol George Mulley has> ridden a number of winners in his first few weeks in South Africa. He is now in keen demand by stables there. FROM A SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT IN CAPETOWN AS a result of his great initial success, Austra- lian A. Mulley has be- come the second most sought after jockey in Capetown. Most owners and trainers pre- fer only South Africa's champion rider, "Cocky" Feldman, to Mul- ley. Mulley intends to stay in South Africa for a least a year or two. He plans to move from Cape- town to Johannesbürg. The reason for his ^electing Johannesburg as headquarters is two-fold. First, racing is held there twice a week-Saturday in the city, and Wednesday on the Rand, while in Capetown there is rac- ing only on Saturdays. This means that in Johannes- burg Mulley will get twice the amount of race riding that he would in either Capetown or Durban. Big Retainer Secondly, Mr. Meyer Lewis, well-known Johannesburg owner, has offered Mull...
FISHING AND WHERE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
FISHING AND WHERE &nbsp; DEEP-SEA, beach and inside competitions will be held at Palm Beach on Sunday, March 20. Entries close on March 12 by ticket donation of £1 for deep sea and inside fishermen and 10/ for beach fishermen. Tickets are available at lead- ing fishing-tackle stores. Proceeds are in aid of the Randwick Auxiliary Hospital. The competitions are under the auspices of the Amateur Fisher- men's Association, but are open to all fishermen. During the past three years fishermen have raised more than £2,000 for the hospital. Sid Lloyd, Len Barrell and K. McDonald landed 52 bream along Flint and Steel shore (Hawkesbury) last week-end. Forty-four were caught in less than an hour early in the morn- ing. Only 61 fish were caught at the "outside" A.F.A. outing to Norah Head last week-end. The smaller "inside" party landed 49 fish in the Pumpkin Point area (Hawkesbury). More than 50 people attended the Spearfishermen's barbecue and picnic at Toowoon Bay last week-end. Larg...
WHAT BOWLERS SAY BY SKIP [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
WHAT BOWLEMßS SAY; D BV SKIP Tom N, Ayling, president of the Far Western Dis- trict Bowling Association lias a. record for service to the game which does him credit. s TARTING as one of the I promoters and first honor ary secretary of Armidale in 1914, he has been in office in various country clubs for 35 years. He has been honorary secretary and president at Wollongong; honorary secretary at Katoomba; and vice-president at Welling- ton. He has not been idle as a player. Honour boards at Cooma and Wellington testify that Tom Ayling won the singles cham- pionship. .' Western district singles and pairs championships also came his way. He was one of Katoomba's skips when that club in 1926 sur- prised the bowling world by tak- ing the State No. 1 pennant. Tom also represented N.S.W. as third for the late Dick Keers against Victoria in 1926. Other activities in addition to town clerk at Wellington include Rotary secretary and hospital honorary treasurer. * * * TWO of the younger genera- ...
JIND A LOO A SHORT STORY [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
MINDALOO *=¿-"-~ A SHORT STORY - By NANCE DONKIN THE truck was old and had to take the steep hill very slowly. Katie jumped down and went ahead, impatient to see the new town. She ran to the top of the hill and looked down at Jindaloo. There was not much to see. There never was much to see in towns that Bright's Travelling .Fair visited. It was a second-rate Fair, and so, second or third rate towns were its lot. But Katie always hoped that one day she would stand on a hill and see her dreams spread out below. There would be a green girdle of trees circling a prelty village, a river, willow-banked, would run beneath white bridges. There would be birds, and no dust, and she would whistle up her dog and walk down to the town, singing. Jindaloo sprawled untidily across the valley, an ugly, colourless little town ringed by brown, baked hills which seemed to draw the sun down until it crouched across the valley and let drop all its heat. The iron roofs glistened ' with heat, the trees dro...
S. AFRICAN GOLD SALE Effect Felt In Australia STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
S. AFRICAN GOLD SALE - . 9 . ? - Effect Felt In Australia STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. WASHINGTON. Feb. 26. South Africa's sale of 100,000 ounces of gold at £A1 an ounce above the world price is seriously affecting many Governments. South Africa, on February 7, sold the gold, in semi-manufac- tured form, to a firm of Lon- don brokers at 38.20 dollars (£A11/18/9) an ounce, com- pared with the world price of 35 dollars (£Al0/18/9) fixed by the International Monetary Fund. The.sale directly concerns Aus- tralia, which is one of the major gold producers-808,000 ounces in the first 11 months of 1948. A gold expert of one of America's largest banks said to "The Sunday Herald" to-day: "If Australia sold her gold at more than 35 dollars an ounce, she could cancel her present policy of remission of taxes on gold mining. "This remission is made to en- courage production of gold. But there would be no need to remit taxes if gold were sold at a higher figure."
FORESTALLING "CATASTROPHE" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
FORESTALLING "CATASTROPHE" Dr. Queuille said in an inter- view that the United States must never allow France and Western Europe to be over run by Russia as they were by Germany. The United States was the only Power capable of forestalling such a catastrophe. If, as the Communist secretary general, M. Maurice Thorez, had envisaged, the Russians should cross the Rhine, the catastrophe would be all but complete. "LIBERATING CORPSE" Dr. Queuille continued: "We know that once Western Europe was so occupied, America would again come to our aid, and even- tually we would be liberated, but the process would be terrible. "Next time you probably would be liberating a coipse, and civilisa- tion would probably be dead." After an all-night conference with the police authorities, Dr. Queuille decided to-day to call off further raids on Communist offices. Correspondents say one reason for the decision was the fear that the raids would provoke strikes. They add that any case against M. Thorez is l...
Unemployment In Europe Rises Sharply [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Unemployment In Europe Rises Sharply -« GENEVA, Feb. 26 (A.A.P.). Unemployment at the end of 194S showed a "significant rise" in six European countries, the in tcrnational Labour Office reports. Italy had 2,161,271 registered unemployed, which was nearly 400,000 more than in December, 1947. Other countries showing a noticeable increase were Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, and Switzerland.

Dutch Speed-up Over Indonesia « BAT AVÍA, Feb. 26 CA.A.P.-' Reuter).-The Dutch Govern- ment to-night announced that it now intends to transfer its sove reignty over indonesia to a repre- sentative Federal Government considerably earlier than it had planned.

Your Illnesses Get More Costly Hospital Expenses Are Still Soaring, But You Get Fewer Comforts By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Your Illnesses Get More Costly Hospital Expenses Are Still Soaring, But You Get Fewer Comforts By. A STAFF CORRESPONDENT , C OARING costs arc forcing a crisis in the affairs of our hospitals. Since 1940 costs of hospital treatment have increased 150 per cent., and they are still rising. In one big Sydney hospital it costs £675 a year to maintain a bed, com- pared with only £268 in 1940. Factors that account for this are wage increases for nurses and domestic staff, the 4,0 hour week, and higher prices for food, drugs, and surgical equipment. MORE than a score of private hospitals in Sydney have been forced to close in the last two years. Even the big hospitals are so costly to run that their administrative staffs are battling to make ends meet. Last year most hospitals were com- pelled to increase charges for accom- modation in private wards very steeply. This has forced many patients, unable to pay the cost of a bed in a private ward, to press for free- treatment in the overcrowded...
DOWN THE FAIRWAYS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
DOWN THE FAIRWAYS^ By I'rowpcr lilli«* ' ÜAST impressions of Bal *? gowlah Club given from the main road have not been too inviting, but, like most clubs, the favourable season and the accumulated effect of over 20 years of care and expense on the course have changed the outlook. The play of the Sasse brothers has been »outstanding over these years, as the championship board shows, but Clarry, a perfectly natural golfer, has now lost some of his keenness. Mick Eather, a player of fine physique and good, easy style, hits a long ball and would appear to have a future. Darrel Eaton is in the same category and should make the grade. Sammy Smith, who has been scoring well lately, is not so forcing a player, but is not to be taken lightly. Norman Harris is renowned for his "banana" shots, but he can pride himself that they come in from the right to left and do not take the form of a slice. Under the presidency of Archie Thorburn 'and the captaincy of Lionel Wilkinson, the. locker room" es...

Casual Converse. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
. Casual Converse. By Warwick Fairfax _i ITEM,, one very fine Pissarro landscape, London price two thousand guineas, Australian, sales tax £.1,000, duty £.724.' Do the public, or even members of the Cabinet, know this? I doubt it, since the import of. decent pictures into this country is virtually unheard of, except by the Melbourne Art Gallery and the Felton Bequest, which, like other galleries, get them in free. That isn't logical anyway, since it is either right or wrong to improve cultural standards here, and cither necessary or unnecessary to raise re-' venue on art. In the same collection as the Pissarro were first-class works by Degas, Signac, Vuillard, Utrillo, Marie Laurencin and a small sketch by Delacroix. The total cost was about £4,300 sterling, and Customs will charge about £3.500 on them here. Alarmed by the shadow of these harpies overhead, the owner refrained from buying two more superb works, a Corot and a Degas bronze figure, which he" might' otherwise have afford...
PAYING FOR BENEFITS NOT RECEIVED [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
PAYING FOR BENEFITS NOT RECEIVED ÍA T the Legion of ex-Service men's Conference in Perth a motion was tabled, that the Com- monwealth Government be urged to get the pharmaceutical benefits scheme working by arrangement with the doctors, or, alternatively, to drop the social service tax for free medicine. The proposal was ruled out, on the ground that it was party-poli- tical. Perhaps, in some sense, it was. Nevertheless, many people with- out special party attachments, and with no strong opinions on the Government-B.M.A. quarrel, are beginning to think along those lines. They want to know why they should pay both the chemist's bill and the contributions which the Government has collected and is collecting to defray that bill. In business, if you pay in ad- vance for goods which the vendor finds himself unable to deliver, you expect a refund. Certainly you do not go on paying. But there is no money back from Canberra for undelivered social service benefits, and not let- ting up on th...

Youth On Ski Fights Off 12-Foot Shark [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Youth On Sid Fights Off 12-Foot Shark Ross Fountain, a 17-year-old surf-ski rider, fought off a 12ft shark which attacked his surf ski at Newport yesterday afternoon. Fountain was alone, pad düng his surf ski 200 yards from shore when the shark attacked him. The shark swam under the surf ski, and rose to the surface, knock- ing him into the water. Fountain scrambled back on to the upturned surf ski, and struck at the shark with his paddle as it circled him. PADDLE TO AID Three other surf ski riders, R. Boots, C. Douglass, and J. Pfen nigwerth, who were on the beach, saw the shark attack Fountain. They paddled out and helped frighten the shark away while Fountain righted his surf ski. While the shark swam near them, they raced for the beach. Lifesavers sounded the shark alarm and surfers rushed from the water. The beach was closed for half an hour, before the shark swam away.
