"Only Disaster Will Rouse The1 í Public To Fire Menace" i CITY FIRE TRAPS EXPOSED By A Special Reporter [ . * . A grave fire menace exists in an alarming number of Sydney's office buildings, stores, warehouses, hotels, and blocks of nats. But only a disaster in one of them will arouse the public to its danger. Neglect to provide adequate fire-fighting equipment and safe fire escapes i» due, in many cases, to "passing the buck" between the lessee and the owner of a building.

Short Story Smoke Signal An accident had been arranged, but it happened in the wrong place because a man liked a certain type of cigarette. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
Short Story Smoke Signal By Ronald It. Smith An accident had been arranged, but it happened Jn the wrong place because a man liked a certain type of cigarette. FRANK," a big man in his putty coloured raincoat, full of conscious authority, said: "You know what to do when Karl lands, don't you, Chris? You know exactly? Tell me." Chris pulled a face. "I'm not simple, i drill the hole in his tank, plug it and cord it to his undercarriage so that'the plug comes out when he takes off. You don't tell me though why you want him to have to make a forced landing. He's making money for you, isn't he? And doing the sticky part?" Frank had calculated that with a hole in his tank the size Chris was to drill, Karl would make his "forced landing" somewhere about mid-Channel. He said: "You don't need to know, Chris. It isn't necessary." "O.K. Just so long as 1 get my share." "It's time you lit the flares. He keeps good time." The moon slipped from behind a rag of cloud. It lit up the field where fil...
St. George Given Shock By Balmain [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
St. George Given Shock By Balmain « Balmain gave St. George a shock at Drummoyne yesterday, when they had seven men out for 125. Lindwall and Jackson then took charge, and St. George had an easy first innings win. But, had Englefield taken a stumping chance against Lindwall when the Test man was 7, the game might have swung the other way. Lindwall and Jackson, in a hurricane partnership of 48 in 21 minutes, put the issue beyond doubt. Jackson and Arthur Hughes provided fireworks in a ninth wicket partnership of 70 runs, put together in only 37 minutes. Jackson's breezy 54 included two sixes in succession and three fours. Arthur Dews, a sound all rounder batted superbly for his 66 not out, made in 54 minutes, with six fours. Balmain slow bowler Reg Pearce bore the brunt of ihe attack. Scores: ST. GEORGE.
