SOME CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 25 November 1916
SOME CRICKET NOTES ? By RAMBLER. The Blue and Gold went down badly at Petersham Oval, before the bowling of An drews *nd Scott. With seven out for 33 against 377, a big first innings deficit looked a certainty, but there were hopes of something better In the second knock, but these were not realised. Wickets tell with tbe same monotonous regu larity as in the first innings, and when sight were down for 33 it. looked as though they vrtrtrld be dismissed twice for an aggregate of less than a hundred.

DON'T LAUGH RUHLEBEN WAR PRISONERS' REVUE: FINE ORCHESTRA [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 December 1916
DON'T LAUGH RUHLEBEN WAR PRISONERS' REVUE: FINE ORCHESTRA Renewed attention has just been called to the community of English civilian prisoners at Kuhleben by the report that some of those who are repatriated to this country may be tempted to act as spies for the Power whose captives they formerly were. The report (says Israel Cohen, late chairman of the Ruhlcbcn Literary and Debating Society) is doubtless based upon some important facts Known to Scotland Yard, for some of the re turned prisoners have had to be interned here - to prevent them from doing mi.vftiief. This is j one of the shadows that d.nken the li.'c at j Ruhleben Camp. There arc. nowever. many I lights, and one of the most noiable is the way I in which our fellow-Englishmen out there have I organised artistic amusements. It is a striking tribute to the self-confidence the resourcefulness of the Britons in German captivity that they have been able to cultivate the muses with such success. They, have or ganised and equ...
STAGE CHILDREN AFFORDED MANY CHANCES DENIED OTHER CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 December 1916
STAGE CHILDREN ? ' -g — ? — i AFFORDED MANY CHANCES DENIED OTHER CHILDREN Myles. in Variety, makes the following de fence of the stage child : — The stage children of to-day, he says, are much better educated than the average young ster of everyday life. They are offered oppor tunities that can in no way be afforded the other children. Education of a child is a deli cate thing. On it hinges the success of future Veant and thr ctanriinr* xmnntr «li» ...n*l,1' people. When it is properly acquired it can guarantee a bright and brilliant future. When everyday children grow into maturity they arc deprived of a good deal of everyday experience, and usually spend three or four years, years that are practically wasted, in trying to gain that poise and knowledge of relations that are necessary to oncfc success in life. They have not been out in tie world, and know none of its peculiarities and customs. And the ways of the world are strange when one starts to dis cover the good and the bad. O...

IMPORTED WINNERS IN THIS STATE MOST SUCCESSFUL AT RANDWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 December 1916
IMPORTED WINNERS IN THIS STATE MOST SUCCESSFUL AT RANDWICK. With four months of the current season gone, and the occasional winning of races in various centres by imported horses, it is not amiss to go back to the beginning of the season and discuss how 'immigrants' have larcd amongst us since that date. This, of course, refers only to our own State, or the four most important sections thereof — Randwick, suburban, provincial, and Newcastle district. In the period r.ndcr review there have been 310 races, and notwithstanding the seemins frequency with which (imp.) follows the name of a winner, only 15 in.portcd horses have been succcssfuMn^ 20 events. These range from the Metropolitan to a Maiden, and are spread over the four sections referred to above. Quinologisfs 'ictories in the Trial, Metrop., and Wavcrley Handicap at the recent A.J.C. Meeting earn for him pride of place in the mat ter of import, though Omaha has also won three races, all at Kembla Grange. The only other with mo...

TOTALISATOR IN SIGHT AT LAST BILL PROMISED FOR NEXT WEEK. Argument, for the time being, at any rate, as to whether or not the Totalisator was to be introduced was settled by the pronouncement of the Premier, Mr. Holman. in the House on Wednesday. Mr. Holman said he had waived, with some reluctance, his long-standing objection to the Tot.ilisator. and was now prepared to sunnlc ment the revenue of the State by its establish ment as a Government monopoly. 'This is a moment,' he added, tamid cheers, 'when per sonal predilections must give way to the general necessities of the country.' Of course, there will be one section of the community that will not quite sec eye to eye with the Premier in the matter of personal predilections giving away to anything. Natu rally, the bookmakers do not want anything lopped off their monopoly. However, the -bookmakers are not to be ex tirpated, but are to be allowed to chant their own tunes to the accompaniment of the tinkling bells of the Totalisator....

Of these. 82. exactly half, have ridden three or more winners, and as those 41 riders have been responsible for 255 out of the 310 races, they quite outbalance the others in the number of races won.

THE GUN N.S.W- GUN CLUB : FIVE DIVIDE FIVE-BIRD SWEEP By BEDt CARROLL. Twenty-four shooters put in an appearance on Tuesday afternoon at the grounds of the N.S. Wales Gun Club at Mascot. It was mem bers' day, when each enjoyed the privilege of inviting visitors to participate in the shooting. There were, however, very lew strangers pre sent, despite the good muster. The big event of the afternoon was a fiw birds £1 sweepstake. The birds were an excep tionally good lot, so good, in fact, that, on the conclusion of the third round, only five shooters remained without the loss of a bird. They were Messrs. W. J. Miller (the well-known veterinary surgeon). A. H. Emanuel, H. Hep burn, H. Garratt, and Tierce. They agreed, in the event of one of the number seeing the five birds out, to divide the sweep. Mr. Hepburn missed the next two, but the other four all killed, and the quintette received £4/6/ each from the stake. In such a big field it is very rarely that the 'lestination of the prize...

TENNIS TOWN TALK [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 December 1916
iTEMNIX Town °) - TALK' Tauru/ The war is having a serious effect on many tennis clubs in N.S. Wales, and the Sydney Club is one of the few that is pulling through 'successfully. Fifteen members have enlisted. One of the vice-presidents of the club, Mr. M. H. Marsh, at the annual meeting last Monday. said members were to be congratulated on the position of the club considering how other such organisations were being affected. Most clubs arc doing what they can for the war in the way of members volunteering for the front, and in the clubs arranging carnivals to assist the patriotic funds, and it will be a pity if financial stress is allowed to wipe some of them out of existence. The. Association might well consider some scheme for lending the weaker clubs a helping hand, and this might be done under proper safeguards. The following have been elected office bearers of the Sydney Club : — Patron, The Governor of New South Wales. Sir Gerald Strickland; president, Mr. Justice Gordon; vic...

Rosehill Postponed By Tulkeroo Rosebery Ponies at Victoria Park TURF GOSSIP OF THE MOMENT ROSEHILL MEETING POSTPONED. The Turf is feeling the effects of the coal strike in common with every industry and pas time, and to-day sees the second meeting post poned by reason thereof. Warwick Farm was first to suffer, a fortnight ago ; but Canterbury w.-.s able to hold its meeting last Saturday, notwithstanding the lack of special transit for man and beast. Now Rosehill is in the unfortunate position of seeing a good day go. With the approach of the Christmas meetings fields were sure to be of good proportions, while, in addition, a consul tation on the December Handicap would have induced considerably more attention for that race than is customary for usual week-end han dicaps. Although Rosehill has had to postpone from to-day, there is tvery probability of the mectinj; being held nex...
