NEW THEORY ON SPEED OF LIGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 20 December 1950

IEW THEORY ON WPEED OF LIGHT Dr. L. Essen, of' the National Physical Laboratory at' Tedding ton, has just confirmed his theory that light travels 11 miles .a second faster than was pre viously believed. The new figure is 186,282 miles a second instead of 186;271 miles postulated by Michelson in the U:S.A. in 1935. Far from being solely of academic interest, the new figure will become the new physical •constant in many calculations in radio, radar and nuclear physics research. The speed of light was not "wanted accurately for any nrar tical purpose until the advent of radar. in the last war. In radr the distance to an object is cal culated from the time taken by the pulse of radio waves to travel there and back, speed of the waves being the same as that of light. The niew figure; will therefore enable radair to be used more I MXzrtti~lte

From Paddock To Punter [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 20 December 1950

(By Harry Quigley) SIt was pleasing to friends of Ray Moody to see ,him..at-Rose hill last Saturday, looking bronzed and fit. A couple of weeks ago a rumor gained. cur rency that Ray had-:gone over the Divide to join his fore fathers, but happily the an nouncement, like the prema ture report of Mark ..Twain's death, was "greatly exagger ated." It would seem that those re sponsible- for spreading the rumor were led into error by the fact that one of the Moodys' friends. Sid Pattison, died up north where the Moodys reside. For years Sid was in the but chery business in Parramatta and was a fine sport. The best horse he owned. was Magi. He had suffered from.heart trouble and died in his sleep. Referring still further to the Moodys, let me say that trainer Harry Moody was down at the week-end to see his old favor ite Menelik compete in the Christmas Cup. Apparently the veteran chest nut, like some of. the rest- of us, is feeling the weight of his years, as he was never in the hunt. At l...

MOVE TO SAVE KINDERGARTEN [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 20 December 1950

MOVE TO SAVE KINDERGARTEN Holroyd Council will consider granting assistance to Merry lands Kindergarten, which may have to close if alternative accommodation is not found. The Kir..lergarten had been given' notice to quit existing premises and was unable to find another building, the president, Mr. E. O. Coxon, has told Coun cil. Mr. Coxon appealed to Council to give the Kindergarten a block of land or subsidise the building of a small hall. Funds were low because the Kindergarten, did not exist to make a profit. At present 35 children were being accommodated and there was a waiting list of about the same number. Mr. Coxon said the Kindergar ten was greatly appreciated by mothers and its closing would be keenly felt. Afderman Mrs. M.
