OWNER'S SHOCK AT WIN [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
OWNER'S SHOCK AT WIN MELBOURNE, Sat- urday. - Part-owner of Carbon Copy, Mr. Abe Silk, was shocked. when the colt was declared the winner of the St. George Stakes at Caulfield to-day after a photo-finish. Mr. Silk thought Comic Court had won. However, the photo-charl showed .Carbon Copy had won by a nose. Carbon Copy has had to sur-1 vive a photo-finish in every «race he has won. , Punters were amazed at to- day's verdict, many having laid 5 to 1 on Comic Court after the horses had passed the .post. It was a repetition of the AJ.C. Derby finish, when people laid IO lo 1 on Vagabond, only to find Carbon Copy had won. Mr. Silk is satisfied that Car- bon Copy will reach top form for the V.R.C. St. Leger, and that he will avenge his defeat by Comic Court in the Victor- ian Derby last spring. ?.Left in the lead shortly after the start, Comic Court's rider, J. Purtell, endeavoured to slow down1 the field and make a sprint home, of the race. With six furlongs remaining, Cronides ran past C...

WOMAN, AGED 81, ADDRESSES SCHOOL LIP-READING CLASS The secretary of the Australian Association for Better Hearing, Mrs. Dorothy Jackson (centre), watches Miss A. M. Lewis, aged 81, address a lip-reading class at the Association school. NURSERY RHYMES COME TO AID OF DEAF At its school in Bond Street, Sydney, the Australian Association for- Better Hearing makes extensive use of familiar nursery rhymes to teach lip reading to partially deaf pupils. "Nursery rhymes'' are ad- I mirable for first lessons in lip reading," said' Mrs. Dorothy Jackson, secretary and chief instructor of the association, yesterday. "They are easily and clearly enunciated, give plain lip move- ments, and, by association of ideas, help the partially deaf to _-i recapture confidence," she said. "For instance, 'Little Jack Hor- ner Sat in the Corner' leads on to lip-reading talks by students on food and cooking." In the association's school- room, a "Sunday Herald" reporter saw a group of women busily i practising ...

Doubtful Starter Suited By Track [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Doubtful Starter Suited By Track Golden Rust, winner of the Novice Claim« ing Race at Canterbury yesterday, was a doubtful starter until after the first race had been run. His owner, Mrs. S. Plotkin, said the _ four year-old- had galloped badly in the hcavy going at Moorefield on Thurs- day. Trainer Neville Davis had therefore advised her not to run him if the going were heavy. "Davis suggested scratching him before acceptance time on Thursday," she said. "But we de- cided to leave him in and to see how the weather and track con- ditions turned out. "We were convinced after the running of the first.race that the Hack was in pretty good shape, and decided to let Golden Rust take his chance. "However, J made only a very modest investment on him. 1 really was not keen on his chance." Firmed To 8-1 Golden Rust firmed in the bel- ling from 12-1 to 8-1, and won the race by three-quarters of a length from Bold Archer (4-1), with Frolicsome (6-1) five lengths away third.

Dashing Beau Let Down Anthony Eden [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Dashing Beau Let Down Anthony Eden -» MELBOURNE, Saturday. -Dashing Beau let down many punters at Caulfield to- day-among them the im peccably dressed Mr. An- thony Eden. The chairman of the. Vic- torian Amateur Turf Club, Mr. Norman Robinson, -said that Dashing Beau was an appro- priate bet for the Bond Handicap. Mr. Robinson had_ good ground for his suggestion, as Dashing Beau was a firm fav- ourite, having been backed down from 4-1. He had other reasons, too, why the horse should be a good bet for 'Mr. Eden. ' The visitor turned down a sug- gestion that he should invest £.5 -but he did buy a £1 win tote ticket. Dashing Beau, however,' finish- ed fourth. Mr. Eden was given a warm reception by the crowd as he walked along the lawn to visit the disabled soldiers, who are en- tertained each meeting in a spe- cial marquee on the lawn.
Italy's Bitter Struggle Grew Deeper [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Italy's Bitter Struggle Grew Deeper From H. G. KIPPAX IN LONDON THE / Mindszenty trial .and the Pope's vehement de- nunciation of its Communist sponsors sharpened the issues in the fight in Italy, for Italy's salvation. There were Communists on one side, the Church on another, and the State (with which may be identified America through Mar- shall Aid) on yet a third. To the Italian-in-the-street, that was a good thing.' The con- testants in their zeal had been stealing so many planks from each other's platform that he had begun lo find difficulty in separating each. The main struggle had always been between the Church and Communists. The State concen- trated on its reconstruction task, the success of which would surely sap the Communist positions. But the position was confused. There had always been groups of Roman Catholics who believed in collaboration with the Com- munists. The Communists stili had a strong section who, pub- licly at any rate, professed the Roman Catholic faith. ...
SPOTLIGHT ON WORLD AFFAIRS Soviet Threat Worried Finland [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
fSPOTLIGHT ON WORLD AFFAIRS Soviet Threat Worried Finland IN lonely Finland this week, an old man was worried. Juho Paasildvi, Finland's 79-year-old President, saw the' shadow of the Russian threat lengthening across his country. There were reports from re- liable sources that the Russians were bringing new troops to the Finnish border. The outside FROM OUR LONDON OFFICE world saw this mainly as a warn- ing to Norway while she tried to decide about joining the Western Powers in the Atlantic Pact. But to Paasikivi it ' was one more move in a series of calcu- lated threats to his own country, an oppression' he had fought against since the armistice of 1944. . . . DAASIKIVI can look back to 1 the days of 1920 when he negotiated the triumphant peace treaty with Russia that assured Finland's independence.

THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB My Reply To A Musicologist [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
THE SUNDAY BOOKCLUB»! My Reply To A Musicologist By ¡SEVILLE CARDUS ÏN an interesting book ("Oí * Musical Things," by Alphons Silbermanri), recently published in Sydney by The Grahame Book Company, Dr. Silbermann says that music critics in general, and myself in particular, lack what he calls "technical knowledge." He means, of course, knowledge of technique, but we must be indul- gent with Dr. Silbermann as he . grapples with our difficult language. Knowledge of technique? Tech- nique of what? A music-critic might be the greatest authority alive or dead on the Netherlands polyphonists and yet be unfit to enter the world of imagination of Gustav Mahler. A music-critic might know as much as Heifetz . about the technique of the violin, yet be unfit lo write intelligently or fairly of an interpretation of the Brahms violin concerto as played by Stern. Myself, I am one of the living authorities on music of the J 9th century; but my views on the "concerto" and its development, from the p...

Good Fiction And Tough [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Good Fiction And Tough "Tune on a Melodeon," by Ian Niall.-William Heinemann Ltd., London. JAN NIALL plucks the tough writer's bashing affrays out of city streets and lands them down amid the-smell of hay-making and the sight of the field of gorse. One odd result is that he now has his publishers musing proudly that "in this novel there is pro- bably more fighting-rough farm fighting, with fist, stake, crowbar or shotgun as weapon-:-than in any other novel of its calibre in modern fiction." Since so few of us count the crowbar fights in any particular novel of whatever calibre, that empty boast may as well be left to stand, with only the pathetically whispered retort, "So what?" Ian Niall is doing far more than just starting a cult of Hay- seed Hemingways or Miss Bu- colic Blandishes. "Tune on a Melodeon" is a fine novel for the same reason that his first novel, "No Resting Place," was some- thing out of the ordinary, and that is not to. tabulate the stakes and shotguns in either.

A Welsh Miner's Rich Vein [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
A Welsh Miner's Rich Vein By L. V. KEPERT IF you stood on a high peak in Wales and bellowed loud enough the name of "Jack Jones," they would come running at you from all directions, and mostly from down the pits on which the wealth of Britain itself rests, as any Welshman will tell you. But one .lack Jones above ground would lift an impatient head from a pile of manuscript growing under his work-hardened fist and tell you to hold your peace,, for he had thousands of words to, write yet and his time was growing short, come you. This particular Jack Jones, like all the others, went down a coal mine at the age of 12, hand in hand with his father, to earn his first shillings. For 26 years off and on-it bad to be off and on. because he was a soldier at one time, and there were other times when no one wanted his labour-he worked as a miner. Then he tried writing. He ex- plained later: "Such a thing as a writer had never been known in our family, the direct line or its branches, so when my...
Minister Lost Prestige Over Medicine By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Minister Lost Prestige Over Medicine By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT A year ago, Health Minister Nicholas Edward McKenna's political stocks were booming. The six-foot, 53-year-old lawyer and accountant, with his ready smile, his unvarying courtesy, his infinite capacity for hard work, was freely spoken 01 as a likely successor to Mr. Chifley in the leadership of the Labour Party. ¡ HIS friends in the party and they were many and powerful-talked of him as a great political "find," a man whose presence, manner, and brain marked him out for high rank. His transfer from the arid plateau of the Senate to the more fertile plains of the House of Representatives was openly can- vassed. The sun shone, and Senator McKenna was riding high. But last week Senator Mc Kenna's sky, like Canberra's, was full of dark and heavy clouds. His prestige in the party had slumped badly. Reason: His handling of the Government's cherished free medicine and national health schemes. Labour critics claimed that he'...
Notes On World Events Of The Week [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
Notes On World Events Of The Week By COLIN BINGHAM MAURICE THOREZ, the secretary-general of the French Communist Party, took a lot of words to say this week that, if the Red Army ever occu- pied Paris "in pursuit of aggres- sors," comrades would be bound to co-operate with it. . Thorcz always takes a lot of words. One summer afternoon in 1946 I heard him addressing thousands of his "faithful" at the national .congress of the party. For two hours Thorez, who on the platform looks shorter than his five feet ten inches and heavier than his twelve stone, presented in a bull's voice his report on the doings of the party. Whenever a Communist hero of the French resistance was men- tioned, the great crowd rose to its feet like an automaton, and they cheered no less automati- cally when, with a lift of his voice, Thorez indicated the com- mendable passages m his speech. Thorez was as natural a part of these highly-organised sur- roundings and atmosphere as was the hammer and sickle flag. A ...
World Awaited U.S. Lead From A STAFF CORRESPONDENT AT UNO [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 27 February 1949
World Awaited U.S. Lead From A STAFF CORRESPONDENT AT UNO TWO years ago General Marshall made a famous speech at Harvard University about aiding Europe, and critics' have said since that he made up the Marshall Plan as he went along. Critics are saying much the same thing now about President Truman and his plan to aid back- ward areas of the world. President Truman announced his plan in his inaugural address last month. Last week the plan was handed over to UNO in the hope that this body would make something concrete out of what was so far high-sounding but indefinite. The diplomatic and persuasive Assistant Secretary of State, Mr. Willard Thorp, in informal talks with the other delegates, reminded them that all attempts by UNO to solve the world's political prob- lems had failed. Now the economic approach should be tried. . . . f^)NE delegate Thorp ap ^-^ proached was Australia's 31-year-old James Plimsoll, whose tall lean figure is stariing to stand out at UNO discussions as belon...
