Girl Swimmer "Did It On Ice Cream" -. Brisbane, Saturday. sprint champion Marjory McQuade, had 2/- worth of ice cream last Tuesday night before she won the Australian 100 metres senior title. Next to salads, the 14-year old's staple diet is ice cream. She scorns the advice of dietitians on what she should cat before races. In her 52 championship wins at swimming she has made re- cords in freestyle and backstroke. She holds all the Australian junior freestyle records. "I do it on ice cream," she says. She ate prodigious amounts of ice cream before races at the Olympic Games, yet recorded the fastest time of her career over 100 metres-68.8s. Marjory is undecided whether to remain a swimmer or try 'to represent Australia in other sports as well. At St. Michael's Church of England Grammar School, St. Kilda. Melbourne, Marjory is captain of swimming and basket hell teams, is a member of the senior baseball side and also plays tennis. She also holds an .all schools' running record. i I Mr...

A SHORT STORY proving that some husbands sometimes think of everything BAGGED [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
A SHORT STORY proving that some husbands sometimes think of everything BAGGED By A. M. BURRAGE WHENEVER William managed to steal - a lady's handbag in broad day- light - a feat' which he achieved two or three times a week-he invariably ' smug- gled it under his overcoat into one of those institutes where a hot bath may be obtained for sixpence. This allowed him half an hour's complete privacy behind a bolted door and ample time to examine his capture. A certain, rainy November afternoon found William in the ^course of carrying out this sound and profitable practice. The crocodile-skin bag, al- though still far from shabby, looked rather old. On the other hand, he had snatched it from a seat in a very expensive-look- ing car which had been left outside a very expensive-look- ing shop. "These women!" thought William. He saw the owner's name on a card stuck into a little leather frame inside the' case. There were half-a-dozen letters inscribed to the same lady at , the same address. Wi...
Sydney's native birds, jostled by foreign invaders, are going bush in search of a quieter and more spacious life. Even Birds Have A Housing Problem [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Sydney's native birds, jostled by foreign invaders, are going bush in search of a quieter and more spacious life. Even Birds Have A Housing Problem By F. W. L. ESCH THE housing problem in the bird world has be- come almost as tough in Sydney as it is for humans. A serious situation has arisen for native birds in the metropolitan area because of the ever-increasing population of foreign introduced birds. These outsiders, mainly pigeons, bul buls, finches, spar- rows and starlings, occupy a lot of nesting space and eat so much that there is not enough to go round. So the native bird packs up and wings it for the bush. N.S.W. bird watchers, who mask themselves under the for- bidding title of the Royal Aus- tralasian Ornithologists Union, have watched, with some consternation, this situation de- velop during the last 20 years, says Mr. A. R. McGill, the N.S.W. honorary secretary FROM the point of view of nesting space the worst offenders are sparrows and starlings. Both originate in &am...

"Schwede shocked even his supporters with his 4m 20.5s in the first mile. It was the best run he has ever made. Record Equalled "We did not expect a ...
League Man Sees Drift In Code [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
League Man Sees Drift In Code Is Rugby League slipping in Sydney? W. M. KELLY, former international, Australian selector, and club coach, thinks it is, and expresses his views in the following article. \Ä/"ITH another season of * * Rugby League in the offing this is an appropriate time to take stock of the pro press and prospects of the code in Australia. The return next week of the Australian Rugby League Team fioni its English and French Tour provides a basis for dis- cussion. The record of the team is a lamentable one and exposes the weakness in our style of play, and the standard of our players. Before anything worthwhile can be done to rectify the posi- tion it is necessary to realise where the weakness lies, and the cause of it. ? After studying the position closely one feels that the very head and fount of all the tiouble which is leading to the disintegration of the code is in the administration. The weakness evident there is manifest throughout the whole set-up of the code....

GIRL RUNNER BEAT WORLD CHAMPION Experts have predicted a great future for 17-year old athlete, Marjorie Jackson. At the Sydney . Sports Ground recently, Miss Jackson twice de- feated Dutch world champion, Fanny Blankers Koen «ver a distance of 100 yards. Vi/HEN Mrs. Blankers-Koen * * came to Sydney in Janu- ary she had not heard of Mar- jorie Jackson, because the vouna Lithgow typist was practically un- known in senior athletics. Marjorie, who was educated at Lithgow High School, lives with her parents at Littleton, a mile ? from Lithgow. Marjorie Jackson Since her father first introduced her to athletics in 1944 she has been the sports idol of the district, but she shows no sign of being affected by her success. She is a modest, winner and blushed when Mrs. Blankers-Koen warmly praised her for her wins. Sport is not the young runner's favourite topic of conversation. She has a wide knowledge of world affairs gained through read- ing autobiographies, novels, books on travel, history...
Slums, Crime, Waste Here; American's View From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Slums, Crime, Waste Here; American's View From Our Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Feb. 26.-Aus- tralia is a land of vast possibili- ties, which are being mishandled, an article in the "United Nations World" says. The "United Nations World" is an unofficial monthly journal | published in New York by U.N. World Inc. It has a circulation of 68,000. The author, Marc T. Greene, says: Slum conditions in the Surry Hills and Rushcutter Bay area are perhaps worse than in any other large city in the English-speaking world. Sydney's lawlessness has won it the appellation of the "Chicago of the southern hemisphere." Australian imports are mostly luxuries-tea, textiles, motor-cars, and petrol. ' Australia's waste of potential water power is "appalling by any standard." Hundreds of millions of pas- toral acres have degenerated through neglect and lack of man- power.

Police Say They Could Not Hold Bank Witness Who Disappeared During Garden Case Ainslie St. Aubyn Kingsford, 54, missing bank officer and witness in the Garden case, is on police files only as a "missing friend." &nbsp; Police emphasise that if &nbsp; &nbsp; they found Kingsford in the street, all they could say to him would be: "You are wanted at home." If Kingsford walked away, the police would have no power to stop him. Kingsford, 54, a trusted officer of the securities department of the Bank of New South Wales, dis- appeared mysteriously on January 28, 1948. Five days before, the bank had deputed him to produce docu- ments relating to visits which the Minister for Transport and Ex- ternal Territories, Mr.Ward, an &nbsp; important witness in the Garden case, had paid to a safe deposit box at the bank. Kingsford had been employed by the bank for 30 years. He lived happily with his wife and two daughters in Bradley's Head Road, Mosman. He was last rcp...
Race Win Dispels Stable Doubts FOXZAMI READY FOR HARD CAMPAIGN Plunge When Price Drifted [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Race Win Dispels Stable Doubts 1 FOXZAMI READY FOR HARD CAMPAIGN Plunge When Price Drifted / Foxami's win in the Burwood Mixed Stakes at Canterbury yesterday convinced trainer D. Lewis that the colt is ready for the hard autumn campaign mapped out for him. A widely-held belief that Foxzami was not ready for yesterday's race caused his price to ease from 5/4 to 5/2, but bets of £1,000 to £400 and three of £900 to £400 arrested the drift. Foxzami will leave early this week for Melbourne, where his engagements are: . V.R.C. St. Leger (Um), text Saturday week. 4 . Australian Cup t (2m), two days after the St. Leger. Then he will Be brought back to Sydney, where his 'main en- gagements will be: . A.J.C. St. Leger (Um), on April 16. . Sydney Cup (2m), on April 38. Second String At this stage. Fo.szami is not regarded as the Lewis stable's main Sydney Cup hope. That distinction lies with Vaga- bond, a good staying colt in the spring, who has already had back- ing for the Cup.
