WOMEN IN SPORT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949

WOMEN »IN I SPORT Br Pat Borthwick * t -i-------»s* IF AUSTRALIAN women golfers are to take their place in world class, the youth of this country must be encouraged and helped. The .present over- crowding of golf clubs makes it almost impossible for a young girl to gain admittance. In some coses, where she shows championship potential, a girl is able to obtain club membership. There must be many such players, however, who are over- looked. Golf to-day is beyond the means of most young people. If they have no position, rarely can they afford to play the game. Yet, if they are working, they find themselves debarred from the course for most of the week-end. There are business girls' com- petitions at most clubs on Sun- day mornings. But is this enough to encourage youth into the field? Does it warrant such a struggle to become a member, and does this one game a week compen [sate for the privilege of paying a high annual subscription? Most clubs will not admit a junior until she has att...

NEW FILMS "Silver River" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949

'[»NEW FILMS* "Silver River" ''PHE materials for a first-class ?*? "western" have been as reck- lessly squandered in this erratic film as the million dollars of Gov ernment money that soldiering Errol Flynn burns in the first reel. Flynn, unjustly cashiered from the American Army after Gettys- burg, cultivates a grudge against pioneer society, and, beginning cheekily with a roulette wheel, he becomes a professional gambler and a silver magnate, who cannot drop twopence-halfpenny without causing financial panics through- out the world. Flynn's acting, and some of the dialogue, is bad enough to be really amusing early; but when the heavier drama comes along he is inclined to maunder like a moon-maiden on Walpurgis Night. Given a high-class actor in this central role, and some tighten- ing of a sprawling script that leaves too many vital points un- explained, director Raoul Walsh might have made a great film of this. As it is, Walsh works pitifully hard to build a hero-role out of the ...

\©*tfe«¿ÓCí6táT«] U DY j QUITE THE BEST party of the week was the Mardi Gras dinner party given by M. and Madame Gerard Masurel, who have taken George Fnlkiner's house in Bello ne Hill for their stay here. They staged a party that Nice couldn't better. The party was in costume, and Madame Masurcl was a bal- lerina par excellence, while Mrs. Marcel Dekyverc defied detection all night in a Chinese costume, and husband Marcel was a very dashing Arab. All told, it was the greatest success, and the guests have vowed that the Mardi Gras cus- tom is one which has come to stay in the Antipodes. * * * RECENTLY RETURNED from America, Dr. John Belisario brought back a number of very highly coloured neckties, which he has been dispensing as gifts. There is only one tag to the gift-the recipient must wear it. So if you see very austere mem- bers of the medical profession sporting the most horrific bow ties plus a rather"sheepish expression -you can blame Belisario. * » * JN A LETTER from London,...

Tax Expert Tells: Coy. Reserves Should Not Be Penalised [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949

Tax Expert Tells: Coy. Reserves Should Not Be Penalised rpVERYONE knows that com *-J panies must put aside some of their earnings to reserves. Eng- land encourages this by giving a tax bonus to companies for not distributing their profits to share- holders. The Australian policy is just the reverse. The Commonwealth imposes on public companies a tax of two shillings for every £1 of profit they do not distribute, but place to reserves. Which country is pursuing the correct policy? Both cannot be. Let us first consider the way that England taxes companies. There are two levies-profits tax and income tax. Profits tax is, in effect, levied at the rate of 5/ in the £.1 on distributed profits, and at the rate of 2/ in the £ 1 on undistributed profits. Income tax is levied at 9/ in the £1 on the balance re maining. As an example, assume a com- pany earns £-50,000 and makes a maximum distribution to share- holders. Profits tax comes to-£10,870, representing £39,130 at 5/ in the £1 (£9,782/1...

Those Prices For Fruit & Vegetables [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949

Those Prices For Fruit t & Vegetables GROWERS are not making a fortune out of vegetables or fruit. The catch-as-catch-can methods of barrowmen and the strong de- sire of regular shopkeepers to stay in business (by selling 'the more profitable lines) gives little security to the growers. It also gives little satisfaction to the housewives. President of the Vegetable Growers' Federation, Mr. S. R. B. Hunt, led a deputation to Mr. Finnan recently and asked for an inquiry on retail profit margins. He said he was tired of hearing the grower blamed for high prices. POTATO PROBLEM One instance quoted by Mr. Hunt was where tomatoes were being sold at 1/3 per lb when the wholesale cost was 3idl.per lb. Such an unreasonable margin repelled, instead of encouraged, consumption at a time of obvious plentiful supply. On the other hand, retailers also are complaining about some of the unreasonable margins al- lowed under Price Control. Pota- toes are unprofitable to sell and their decontro...

THE WOMAN'S VIEWPOINT Why Not More Women In Local Government [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949

THE WOMAN'S VIEWPOINT Why Not More Women In Local Government 1 WON DER why so few women are to be found on municipal and local councils? There is won- derful scope for them. Aren't we interested in roads and drains and tree-planting? Now that local councils are doing so much more in the way of community life, baby health centres, and day nur- series, women are essential. For obvious reasons they must be mainly women whose children are at school, or out in the world, for it means many night meet- ings. Yet, how many women think of standing for councils, and do other women vote for them? The Deputy Mayor of Botany is a woman. A woman has been mayor of Newtown, but they are exceptions. I suppose that we are content to claim our usual privi- lege of grumbling at what has been done without taking any practical steps to remedy our grievances. . . . ONE admirable long term aim of women on councils could be-if they took their job seri- ously-the study of Local Gov- ernment regulations to en...

But if lie did . . t ir By JOHN BRENNAN ILLUSTRATED BY ROY DALGARNO IF for one brief instant in time the average Austra- lian should exist, and if he lias three-and-a-half buttons on the front of his shirt (as lie should have), then so soon as he or his part-wife replaces the half, or the laundry tears another button from its' fastenings, he is no longer the "Average" Australian.
