ACTION BY FRANCE Deputy To Be Prosecuted [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
ACTION BY FRANCE Deputy To Be Prosecuted LONDON, March 5 (A.A.P.). - The French National Assembly decided yesterday to lift the Parua mentary immunity of a Com- munist Deputy, M. Roger Guraudy. The Government asked for this step so that it could prosecute Garaudy for defamation. The alleged offences go back lo 1947 and concern tracts bearing Garaudy's name. These attacked the then Premier, M. Robert Schuman, and called him "the gauleiter of the dollar." The Assembly, by 296 votes to 221, refused to lift the immunity of the Communist leader, Marcel | Cachin. A Right-wing Deputy, Andre Mutter, alleged that the Paris Communist paper, "L'Humanité," of which Cachin is nominal direc- tor, published defamatory stories about his conduct during the German occupation of France.

WIDE POWERS IN BRITAIN From A Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
WIDE POWERS IN BRITAIN From A Staff Correspondent . LONDON, March 5. Complete independence from Parliament and the civil police is the keynote of Brit ain's famous Military Intelli- gence branch No. 5 (popu- larly known as MI5). When prying questions are asked in the House of Commons about its activities, the Prime Minister often refuses to answer them. His refusal is supported by the Speaker's ruling that "A Minister is always entitled to refuse to answer a question which deals with our Secret Service which he considers affects the security of the State." When the Civil Service Com- munist purge became a hotly debated issue at the Trade Union Congress last year, Mr. Attlee staked his personal prestige on defending MI5's immunity from public examination. As a concession to trade-union feeling, Civil servants whose dis- missal has been recommended by M15 are allowed to appeal to a three-man tribunal, but the appel- lants are not allowed to have details of the case laid against them. ...
CONJURING TWO CARD TRICKS TO PRACTISE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
CONJURING TWO CARD TRICKS TO PRACTISE By "MERLIN" A/OU will need the four Kings * from a pack of cards tor these two tricks. HOW IT LOOKS: The four Kings are placed in a line on the table and a group from the audi- ence is asked to examine them. The magician meanwhile says: "These four fellows were called up during the war for military service. One was rejected. Can you pick him and tell me why?" Nobody knows, and the magi- cian points to the King of Dia monds. "That poor chap onl^1 has one eye!" - As this is a very brief trick indeed, it should be followed by this addition. The conjurer turns his back and says: . , "Turn one of the Kings up- side down (head to tail not over on its back) and I will (ry to pick the card you have, moved by the electricity from your fingers." He picks the card unfailingly. THE SECRET: If you care- fully examine a pack of cards you will find thal the white margin above and ' below the "royal" cards is not quite even. When you lay the Kings out be carefu...

200,000 New Readers Seek Solid Books They Are Rushing To Public Libraries In Quest For Knowledge By A Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
1200,000 New Readers I J y Seek Solid Books They Are Rushing To Public Libraries In Quest For Knowledge By A Staff Correspondent I A USTRALIANS are a book-hungry people. Tliey would read more books if they could afford them - not just "light" or "escape" reading but books that instruct and inform. Latest proof of this conies from the 58 pub- lic libraries opened in country towns and Sydney suburbs since the end of the war. These 58 new libraries, which are financed by municipal and shire councils with subsidies from the State Government, have already attract ed about 200,000 new readers who had never enjoyed a free library before. rpHESE 200,000 readers last year borrowed 2,000,000 books. The nature of these books shows the existence in our com- munity of large groups of edu- cated and intelligent people whose desperate need for good reading has'long been either unsuspected or ignored. There has been an astonishing -de- mand for what might be called infor- mative literature-books th...

Morna crossed the finishing line and relumed immediately to assist the disabled boat, which was later taken ina tow Remarking on the incident last night Sir Claude Plowman owner skipper of...

Brilliant Win By t Sid Patterson In Big Cycling Race By Frank Tierney Sid Patterson last night won the senior one-mile amateur cycling championship of Australia at Henson Park, after what he said was the toughest finish he had ever ridden. Patterson had to fight every inch "of the way and did not gain ascendancy until the last 20 yards when, with a mighty kick, he practically lifted his cycle to go across the line with siightly over a length to spare. "Fifty yards from home, I thought for a moment that Bruce Moore might hold me off and win the champion- ship," Patterson said after the race. Al Ihnt stage, Moore, who is the mile title-bolder in New South Wales, was receiving the wildest cheers of 5,000 spectators as he brilliantly led the field towards Ihe line. Moore, who is noted for his tenacity rather than for his sprint- ing ability, finished second, about a length ahead of The title-holder, Keith Reynolds (Victoria). Moore's ride completely sur- prised N.S.W.officials, but he h...

. Casual Converse. By Warwick^ Fairfax' IF the youth of Australia took other things as scçiously as they take cricket, what' a grand country this would be! -If Aus tralia is the world's premier cricketing nation, it is mainly because vast numbers of our young manhood are straining every nerve to achieve what- ever cricket ambition, great or limited, lies within their power. > . Cricket, foremost among sports, is supposed to instill the virtues of team- work, discipline, concentration, and, also, o( cheerful resignation in the face of defeat, ill luck, the decision of a bad umpire, the instructions of a captain one may not agree with, or any other such vicissitudes. It is sup- posed to develop physical vigour, quickness of hand and eye, 'and the determination, even though one is ex- hausted, to go on piving of one's very best. Are all the»e virtues supposed to be confined to the playing field and forgotten when we get into ordinary clothes? People would jeer and barrack a football...
