Collerson, chairman and co-managing director of Tulloch Limited, Rolling Stock Manufacturers and Engineers of Rhodes, completed 60 years' ser vice with the company on Sat urday, April 1, 1950. As a token of esteem and appreciation, the directors en tertained Mr. Collerson at a din ner held at "Lauriston," Dundas; on the evening of April 3. In the presentations, some very interesting facts of his in dustrial career were revealed. The name of "Tulloch" has been well known in the indus try shnce 1885, when the late Mr. R. Tulloch, with plenty of energy and little money, opened a small shop in Bulwarra Rd., Pyrmont, to produce steam boilers. In April, 1890, an energetic young man of 20 entered the employ of Mr. Tulloch, and later married his daughter, who be came Mrs. R. H. Collerson.

Clever Fashion Notion [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 12 April 1950

.Clever Fashion Notion Hollywood.--The vogue for strapless dresses has salvaged one of Gloria De Haven's favorite evening gowns, The young actress, to be seen neat in "The Doctor and The Girl," made an entirely new dress by cutting the entire bodice off: a black taffeta dress. Then, with a yard of velvet, she made a perfectly straight, tight-fitting bodice fastened in the back with a row of small buttons. The stark simplicity of the black velvet against the taffeta gives Gloria one of the smartest gowns of the new season. When Betty Gr 'ble does the hula in her Sou-h Sea Islands number in 20th Century Fox's "1My Blue Heaven," it is going to be a strictly authentic ver sion of the traditional dance. The studio has called native Hawaiian dancers from the islands .to coach Betty in the ,various nuances of the hula.

Campbell, and ward alder men will discuss with 1st Merrylands Boy Scouts Group Committee the sale of two lots of Council land in Treves Street for the erection ofl a new clubhouse.

Rugby Union Season Opens Next Saturday [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 12 April 1950

Rugby Unon" Season81 Opens Next Saturday The 1950 Rugby Union season commences next Saturday when Parramatta meets Eastwood at Parra matta Oval, the first game commencing at 12.55 p.m. Parramatta selectors have chosen a young, 'fast back line to represent the club in the open ing match, offset by the usual ex perienced pack of forwards. Interesting newcomers are five-eighth F. Pilcher, who is making his first grade debut after representing N.S.W. Juniors in Victoria last year, and R. Arm strong, outside centre. Armstrong also played junior football last season, but repre sented the club on several occasions three years ago. An interesting selection is that of V. Odell,- who, as a centre, failed to live up to expectations. Tried out this year* as a front row forward, Val has used his 14 stone and speed to great ad vantage and looks like develop ing into a champion. Eric Tweedale and L. Wolfe are again teamed at second row and should again prove a solid basis for the scrum. STweedale ...

No Time to Stand And Stare [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 12 April 1950

No Time to Stand And Stare Tsewang' Pemba comes from Tibet that far away country which to most people is shrouded in mystery and steeped in romance, lying as it does behind the massive range of the Hima layan mountains. Now Tsewang Pemba had a longing to become a doctor but there was nowhere in Tibet where he could study modern medicine. His father considered London to be the source of such knowledge and explained to Tsewang Pemba's mother that it would benefit her son's country if he studied and qualified as a doctor in England, for there are no real doctors in Tibet where they are greatly needed. But Tsewang Pemba's mother was not willing for'her son to go away from home for six years fearing he would forget his coun try and his language. As the mother is the head of the Eamilv in Tibet, Tsewang Pemba stayed op. But at last his mother agreed to his going and bearing Tibetan books with him to remind him of home, he set off for London. For five days he travelled through mountain pas...

Administration Of Portico Park Holroyd Council has decided to call together two commit tees both clainming to be the Portico Park Local Committee in an effort to iron out diffim culties in the administration of Portico Park, Toongabbie. This was decided at Council meeting after a request from the recretary of one of the commit bees for a ruling by Council on the properly constituted body had been received. The secretary of one local committee told Council that undei a section of the Local Gov ernment Act his committee ceased to hold office three months after the local council elections in 1948. The procedure then to be fol lowed was the election of a new committee and its endorsement by Council. He said after the elections the retiring committee did not re ceive a reminder from Council, although a new committee was required by the Act to be elected. It appeared, he e-added, that Council had contacted the Toon gabbie West Progress Assacia tion. The association had appointed a new com...
