Most Bushfires Are Caused By Carelessness Those Who Start T[?] [?] MURDER BY FIRE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

ILLUSTRATED BY CLEM SEALE AUSTRALIA suffers /% from some of the /m worst bushfires in the world and nine out of ten of them are the result of man's carelessness. Fire consciousness in the public mind is greater in 1949 than it was in 1939, when parts of the continent were swept by the most disastrous bushfires in our history. Yet at any un- expected summer moment human agency is likely to start a holocaust which will destroy dozens of lives and ruin thous- ands of square miles of forest, habitation and pasture. In 1939 bushfires caused damage estimât ed at £2,000,000 in Victoria and at £1,000,000 in New South Wales. More than 70 people lost their lives. It seemed enough to imp/ess on the nation a terrible lesson. Yet in 1943-44 those two States flared up again. Claims received by the Victorian Bush Fire Relief Committee totalled £>1,700,000 ano a survey r.. vealed that 50 people were dead and 600 homes destroyed. In New South Wales there were 197 outbreaks of fire and extensive a...

He's In Hollywood— His Father's In Debrett The son of a British Knight got into films by accident, and stayed by design. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

He's In Hollywood His Father's In Debrett The son of a British Knight got into films by accident, and stayed by design. OTATISTICS-M 1N D E D ^ Hollywood announced recently that Peter Lawford was getting 'five times as many congratulatory and autograph-seeking letters as he was a year ago. Fan mail, that barometer of screen success, now places the young British-born actor among the top half-dozen male stars in Hollywood. Young Lawford gets fan letters from all ovot' the world, but his two most ardent ad- mirers don't have to write to him. They live with him. They arc his parents, Lieutenant General (retired) Sir Sidney and Lady Lawford. At first rather dazed at the idea of having an actor in the family, the senior Lawfords now take the whole thing in their stride. They have become Peter Lawford with Judy Garland in lYl.G.M.'s new Techi colour musical "Easter Parade." tremendously interested in films and arc inordinately proud of their son's career.' Lady Lawford's^ favourite chore i...

For 125 Years One Family Ruled 50,000 Square Miles Of Borneo. This Is The Story Of The Incredible Brookes of Sarawak [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

For 125 Years One Family Ruled 50,000 Square Miles Of Borneo. This Is The Story! Of The Incredible Brookes of Sarawak By WARREN HALL BETWEEN the departure of young James Brooke for Burma, as a Bri- tish Tommy, and the squiggle of a London Judge's pen on a divorce decree recently, al- most a century and a quarter elapsed-and four generations of an incredible family etched a pattern of love and hate against the background of a fabulous East Indian princi- pality which it ruled despoti- cally through a succession of white rajahs. The decree ended the second marriage of Valerie Brooke Gregory Cobarro, more com- monly known as Princess Baba, and youngest daughter of the Rajah of Sarawak, who had re- tired to an English estate not long before, after renouncing a throne won early in the 19th century by his grand-uncle, James. Young James was wounded in Burma. He was nursed back to health but doctors advised him never to marry. P)EN1ED children and a *-^ home, James Brooke turn- ed to adven...

Little Star With A Big Contract [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

Little Star With A Big Contract WHEN a Staff, Correspon- dent called on Britain's latest film star at his Mayfair flat he nearly fell over him. Hiding behind the door was nine-years-old Bobby Hcnrcy, who, following on his success- ful first screen appearance in "The Fallen Idol," has a £30,000 contract with Lon, don Films. Pale-faced, flaxen-haired Bobby got his chance in films "out of the blue." His mother, authoress Mrs. Robert Henrcy, has published his photograph in one of her books. This was spotted by Sir Alexander Korda, who had tested hun- dreds of boys for "The Fallen Idol" without success, and he sent off a letter asking Mrs. Hcnrey to allow him to try Bobby. The test was success ful, Bobby's acting in the film was applauded by the critics, and now Bobby's future in pic- tures is assured until he goes to Eton in 1952. Bobby is at home either in London or Normandy, where his parents have a farm, and From T. S. MONKS, In London speaks equally well in French or English. His mo...

Plan Youl* Garden Space For Autumn And Winter. PROSPECT AND RETROSPECT By WARATAH Thrip, aphis, fruit fly and water shortage this summer have failed to shake the gardener's faith. Now the rain has come it is high time lo plan for autumn and winter. WE who keep our noses pretty close to the soil have weathered the worst of it very well. Gardens are still green and gay, in spite of seasonal setbacks. This result has not been achieved without much work and worry (or is it pleasure?). Harassed by sprinkler-restric- tions, when water was most ur- gently needed; irritated by thrips and early aphide plagucs; tormented by fruit flics; pestered by red-spiders and provoked by heat and westerlies, the enthusiasm of soil-tillers has never waned. **?*.; ÏT is now higher than ever. * Sandwiched between the heat spells and the pest-par- ades, there have been remark- able runs of coolness. These gave heat-parched plants their chances of revival. It has been a remarkable summer in that respect. And ...

Still The Film Idol, But It's A Dapper Chaplin Now [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

Still The Film Idol, But It's A Dapper Chaplin Now By E. L. BROWNE -'THE English say he is English. The Ameri- cans say it is high time he became an American. The French think he is more French than themselves. And the Spanish, in their obstinate dictionaries, still list him as Carlos Martinez Chaplin. But no matter where the stork made its original touch- down, Charlie Chaplin in his 36 years of films has become a citizen of the world, claimed and loved in every country for his ait if not for his blood. The little man with the black smudge of moustache, the baggy pants, the battered bowler, and the duck feet has become a legend in his own lifetime-and Chaplin himself has buried him. TN his last film, "Monsieur Verdoux," soon to be seen in Sydney, Chaplin eliminates the buffeted little comedian he used to be to become a dapper boulevardicr. He is a French dandy to the life cravat, kid gloves, spiked moustache, check vest, and cane. And his feet, too, after all these years, turn out ...

airborne Sydney's Airport Has Handled 4,000 Passengers A Day. Adventure Has Gone Out Of Air Travel [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

roo n r\ Sydney's Airport Has Handled 4,000 Passengers A Day. Adventure Has Gone Out Of Air Travel BY ROSS CAMPBELL AIR travel has boomed with a rush in Australia since the war. The 1,217,178 passengers carried by Australian internal airlines last year showed a 39 per cent, increase over the year before. The all-time day's r, lecord at the Kingsford Smith ' airport at Mascot was estab- lished on Christmas Eve, when more than 210 planes, carry- ing 4,000 passengers, landed and took off. Airlines have been running in Australia for more than 20 years, but what has happened lately amounts to a revolu- tionary change-at last people are taking air travel for grant- ed. "No smoking. Fasten seat belts." A sign with these ad- monitions lights up before take- off in the airliner's cabin. For to-day's passenger, that sign is just about the only part of his journey which has a whiff of adventure. It is a reminder that things have been known to go wrong when aero- planes take off or land and if ...

BANG GOES NED KELLY Ned Kelly wasn't a hero and he had a feminine streak, says the author of this provocative article. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

BANG GOES NED KELLY Ned Kelly wasn't a hero and he had a feminine streak, says the author of this provocative article. BY JAMES TAYLOR ILLUSTRATED BY JAMES PHILLIPS NEXT time anyone tells you you are as game as Ned Kelly con- sider yourself insulted. For, as a growing accumulation of evidence shows, the Kelly courage is a myth. Edward Kelly was "game" only when his belt was festooned with revolvers and he carried a loaded rifle at the ready— with his three equally well- heeled companions standing by. With mingled scorn and ad- miration I have been reading Max Brown's "Australian Son," a biography of Ned Kelly pub- lished by the Georgian House Pty. Ltd., Melbourne. The scorn is for myself for allowing my attention to be ab- sorbed by the story. The ad- miration is for Mr. Brown for being clever enough to produce this effect in spite of his special pleading, sentimentality and reckless exploitation of class prejudice. Mr. Brown makes no bones about his esteem for Kelly and Co., and Ne...

». Marjorie Lawrence's New Triumph BY WARREN HALL The new triumph of Marjorie Lawrence, great Australian singer, is the story of seven years' patience and devotion. TjR. THOMAS M. KING " achieved his greatest cure after he had retired from practice. He became a doctor With only one patient and a husband- with only * one thought-the recovery of his wife from the crippling effects of infantile paralysis. When Marjorie Lawrence stood for an hour in Orchestra Hall in Chicago one night last year to triumph in the title role of "Electra," Dr. King had proved to the world that pati- ence and devotion can prevail after the customary medical, treatment has done its best. Watching from the wings the faithful physician spurned his rightful share of the tumultu- ous applause, but his wife was the first to insist that her own courage could never have ac- complished the miracle with- out his seven years of tender care, inspirational therapy and calm, gentle strength.

PATRICK COULD TAKE BLOWS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

PATRICK COULD TAKE BLOWS Could Vic Patrick take a punch? I have heard that question debated many times since the brilliant lightweight retired last year. p ATRICK'S knock-out defeat by the Amen can Negro, Freddy Daw- son, probably started the debate. Anyone doubting Patrick's ability to take punishment has only to look.back through his career for the answer. One 'of his greatest admirers was a former triple-champion. Ron Richards. He contended that Patrick was easily his best sparring partner. I recall one occasion, at Ern McQuillan's gymnasium, when Patrick and Richards were spar- ring over three rounds. Early in the first . round, Richards connected with his favourite punch, a left hook to the jaw. and Patrick went down. It was a terrific punch from a man whom I consider to be among the best punchers of his day. But young Patrick jumped straight from the canvas, and the two boxers engaged in a hard-punching battle during the next two rounds. English middleweight Alec Buxton, who g...

Olympic Coach Advises This State's Girls To Swim Miles [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

Olympic Coach Advises This State's Girls To Swim Miles By Forbes Carlile, Official Coach of the Australian Swimming Team at the 1948 Olympic Games. This State had no girls in last year's Olympic Games swimming team, and, unless there is improvement from the present low standard, it is unlikely there will be any at Helsinki in 1952 Ann Curtis (U.S.), centre, K. Harup (Denmark), right, and Cathie Gibson (Britain) on the Victory Stand after the women's 400 metres freestyle at the Olympic Games. Each trained by swimming miles a day. BASIC trouble is that N.S.W, girls do not train long enough or far enough. They think in terms of 200 or 300 yards a day, instead of in miles. Olympic 400 metres champion Ann Curtis swam at least three miles a day for nine or 10 months of the year before the London Games. It is significant that two out- standing Australian Olympians, Judy Jdy Davies and Marjorie McQuade, of Victoria, both have trained almost the year round in Melbourne's indoor, city baths. ...

"Ossie" Pickworth Tells Young Golfers:— "Have An Expert Pick Your Clubs, And Never Let Up On Practice" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

"Ossie" Pickworth Tells Young Golfers: "Have An Expert Pick Your Clubs, And Never Let Up On Practice" This is the first of a series especially written for "The Sunday Herald",by H. "Ossie" Piekworth, Australian Open golf champion for the past three years. PRACTICE, practice, * and more practice is golf's first and most in- sistent demand. If the young player" is not pre- pared to obej this law then he would be wise to regard the game as just a pleasant exercise. I began to -play golf when I was 10 years of age. I was, even then, somewhat fanatic about it, and there were few of my after-school minutes in which I was not either actively H. "OSSIE" PICKWORTH playing, or patiently and hope- fully practising. Was I rather young to begin? I'm sure I wasn't. It is never too early to begin, provided, of course, that one's first efforts arc not made without guidance. I do not recall that I had any great degree of genius with the clubs at that age. As a fact, I did better at cricket. Football...

W. Cook Says, But For Horseshoe, Veilmond Would Have Won Phar Lap's Cup [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

W. Cook Says, But For Horseshoe, Veilmorid Would Have Won Phar Lap's Cup jockey W. H. (Bilíy) Cook lias been one of Australia's leading light- weights since he won the Sydney Cup on Crucis in 1929. Cook, in 24 years as a jockey, has about 1,600 wins to his credit, includ- ing Melbourne Cups on Skipton and Rainbird. In this article he reveals that only ill-luck prevented him winning Mel- bourne Cups on two other mounts Veilmond. and Pandect. ''THOSE who vyant to think of * the horseshoe as a symbol of good luck are entitled to their view. Personally, I don't. For a cast horseshoe once robbed me of success in a Mel- bourne Cup. People who remember Phar Lap and his greatness are almost certain to cast sidelong looks at me when 1 say that Veilmond, whom I rode, should have beaten him in the Melbourne Cup of 1930. Look as they will, it's my story, and I'm -sticking to it. For 1 am one of the very few people who know what happened to Veilmond and what a mighty effort he made to run fifth....

"Jack Spade" Wrote Hit And Vanished From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

"Jack Spade" Wrote Hit And Vanished From Our Staff Correspondent LONDON, January 22.--Lon- don songwriters are mystified about an Australian song "Suvla Bay," which has .suddenly become the rage of Britain. Sheet music copies credit both, the melody and the lyric to "Jack Spade." But Jack Spade cannot be found. There is some doubt whether he is even an Australian. The B.B.C. has made the song the hit tune of the month. Every "pop" singer and dance band leader is asking "Who is Jack Spade?" The copywriters of the song are the Irwin-Music Company. They claim that "the Jack of Spades" (a name often given in the profession ' to an unidentified composer) is alive and lives in England, but will give no other details. Other London songwriters claim "Suvla Bay" is a 1914-1918 tune "pepped-up" for present-day aud- iences. ["Suvla Bay" was the scene of some of the fiercest fighting in the Gallipoli campaign.] Mr. Sonny Cox, director of Box and Cox, heard the lilting tune last year, secured th...

MIGRANTS LOST LIFE SAVINGS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

MIGRANTS LOST LIFE SAVINGS A member of the Lanca- shire family, Mrs. Margaret Taylor, yesterday described their experiences, to tlie "Herald."" She was one of a party of six Lancashire people and a child who sold up and set out for what they imagined would be a new life in Australia. With her was hcrjiusband, Mr. Tom Taylor, former air-gunner in Britain's Fleet Air Arm, his father and mother, his brother and his wife-Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stephenson - and an adopted child, Eileen, aged eight. What followed cost Mrs. Taylor and her husband their life savings and took them no nearer to Australia than Marseilles. Speaking at her lodgings in Shcvington, near Wigan (Lanca- shire), Mrs. Taylor said they answered a tourist agency's adver- tisement for passages to Australia in a "luxury liner." The all-in cost was £145 (£A181/5/) each. After they had paid the fares were raised by £30(£A37/1G7) ahead. They paid the extra charge and left, being met in London by a man described aâ a courier for t...
