G.B.S. Says He May Be Too Old, Garrulous STAFF CORRESPONDENT LONDON, March 5.-George Bernard Shaw admits that his sayings and writings to-day may be "the senile drivellings of a gar rulous and too-old man." He says so in a peppery auto- biographical book, "Sixteen Self Sketches," just published. Some typical Shavianisms from the book arc-'? "I was a cannibal for 25 years, for the rest I've been a vegetar- ian." "Like Einstein, I'm not happy and don't want to be happy. I've neither the time nor the taste for such comas." "As soon as I could afford to dress presentably I became accus- tomed to women falling in love with me. I did not pursue women, I was pursued by them." "Not until I was past 40 did I earn enough money to marry without seeming to marry for money."

TWO UNHURT IN CRASH-LANDING [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
TWO UNHURT IN CRASH-LANDING Two men escaped injury when the Avro Avion trainer plane in the picture above crash-landed on Moore Park golt course yesterday after- noon. They were Jack Pouns berry, 21, student pilot, Stanmore Road, Petersham (left in lower picture), and Glen Shepherdson, 31, in- structor, Carlton Crescent, Summer Hill (right). Shepherdson said the en- gine began to "cough" on the way back to Bankstown from a training flight over Manly. After he took over the controls the petrol supply cut out. The motor would not start, so he headed for the golf course. The plane narrowly missed the Australian Glass Works factory and flew with- in 10 feet of high-power cables. The plane ran smoothly on the golf course, but a bump turned it over. Damage to the plane, which is valued at £200, was negligible. Its owner is Tom Batchelor, a profes- sional motor cyclist in the "Globe of Death."
