Some Little Don'ts [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 18 November 1916
Some Little Don'ts The following Don'ts for officer! and their friends have been compiled by Ensign in The Outlook : — Don't think when you join that because you have been a successful stock-jobber you are going to win the war. Don't think the first tirr.e you co on parade that the whole battalion are looking at the fit of your breeches ; they are thinking about din ners. Don't think that soldiering in England con sists in taking flappers out to tea. You are a wonderful young fellah, but you might pick up something on the parade ground. \ , : Don't think that walking about the top of the trench unnecessarily shows that you are a brave man ; it shows you are a damned fool. Don't forget to lie down if they turn a machine-gun on you ; it is better to be dirty _ _ than dead. Don't forget that a joke or two is worth a ton of medical comforts. Don't be afraid of overeating yourself. ! Don't be a teetotaller.

NIGHT TRACK RACING. I There was a fair muster of riders and en thusiastic followers of the sport on Wednct t'.r.y evening, when the Central Cumberland (Le.inuc) and Marrickvillc (Amateur) Clubs each decided a couple of events at the Sports Ground. Fields were large for the Cumberland's mile handicap, necessitating two heals and a final. I-'. Kennedy (130) annexed the first heat by a wheel witn H. E. Colcman (110) and T. C. Parker (95) in the pluces. E. Tamme (25), the Victorian road champion, showed a good turn of speed, in the second, and was too good for A. J. Davics (25), and L. Crook (10) in the sprint home, winning by inches. The final was a fine race. The back men overhauled the longmarkers in the last lap, and, in a great sprint to the judges, Lcs Crook (10), who is rapidly recovering his old-time form, scored by a foot from Tamme (25). and Kennedy (130). The time— 2mins Usecs— was good, as the riders had a stiff cold breeze to contend with. J. N. Doody, who is having more th...

GRAFTING THE 'TOTE.' Although an instruction was issued to racing clubs from the New Zealand Racing Conference re the strict adherence to the 'toto' closing rule (says the Auckland Star), several clubs have entirely ignored these, and the grafting of the machine is still being resorted to. At Mastcrton things were reported to be very bad, and now comes word that the conditions at the Poverty Bay Meeting were considerably oVcr the limit.

It is a matter of common knowledge in racing circles that the Minister of Internal Affairs and the executive of the Racing Cpnferencc are in accord rc f.ardiPR the abuse, and the paid officials of the l-crdinK the abur.e, and rightly su, for they have latter body have becn.

Petersham, on form, should have no difficulty in accounting for St. George at Marrickville Oval, but the Illav/arra brigade have in the past played their best games against the Blue and Reds. The latter have yet to taste defeat- this siaeon, and nobody will begrudge the Slints a win. Sydney unexpectedly put up a great battle against the Oceansidcrs last Saturday. In the two early cessions Waverley knocked up five runs, and held the op;ositiou down to nought. In the third the Maroons scored a single, and in the following innings furnished a surprise by pounding the pill all over the diamond to the extent of five runs, gaining a lead of one.
