.... Candid Comment By ONLOOKER [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

. . . . Candid Comment By ONLOOKER BEHIND the row in the railways ig 'the fact that the McGirr Govern- ment, in picking Mr. Gar side for Commissioner, rather mistook its man. Some Ministers backed the more adaptable and politically minded Mr. Winsor, but that, - for one 'thing, would have cut across the Labour tenet of pro^ motion by seniority. Expectation was that, with the creation of a Railways Board in prospect, Mr. Garside would be deterred from taking too independ; ent a line. . . . It hasn't wotked out that way. The new Commissioner is not the flexible type. Disbandment of the "efficiency committee" was a sign that he did not intend to let anybody, in York Street or Mac- quarie Street, tell him how to run the railways. An upright, deeply religious man, devoted to duty, he_ shuns publicity and disapproves of strong drink. The Garside temperance drive is causing a minor commotion in the department. It did not begin at Wollongong or Central. The re- freshment cabinet al headquar...

What Is Wrong With Australia? Our Opportunities Are Slipping Away Through Our Fingers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

What Is Wrong With Australia? Our Opportunities Are Slipping Away Through Our Fingers By H. A. McClure Smith Almost three years ago Mr. Chifley fired the imagination of his countrymen by declaring that "Australia is entering a golden age." I TTHE time has surely come to ask . why that confident prediction, with all its undertones of promise, is recalled with such wry smiles to-day. Upon the answer, and upon our ability to apply its lessons in our national life, depends much more than our material progress. The health of our political and,social life, the growth of our international stature, and the flowering of our culture is all at stake. On none of these scores can the thoughtful citizen feel happy to-day. Even the most carefree must be conscious of a deepening chill in the air. Warnings that' all is not well with Australia are coming from too many quarters. Gone is the bright confident morning which followed the years of war and sacrifice. Mr. Chifley himself has pointed to the s...

Newcastle Girl Has Easy Swim Win Newcastle swimmer Janet Johnson was not extended to win the 220 yards junior freestyle at the women's State swimming* championships. at North Sydney pool. She coasted to time 2tn 51s,| saving herself for the more strenuous tussle with Miss Pat McHugh in the open 440 yards. She gained a slight lead in the early 'stages from J. Legge and A. Kendall, both of Murwillum- bah, who filled the minor places. Victorian Judy Joy Davies had an easy win in the 165 yards open medley. She was held by B. Hosking, of Manly, in the breaststrokc lap, but soon established a lead in the backstroke lap. Her lead became commanding over the final lap. She beat Laurel Greentree, of Clovelly, who finished strongly, in 2m 11.6s. v Collapsed Title and State recordholder Pat McHugh, of Bondi, collapsed in the 440yds open freestyle.

Casual Converse. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

. Casual Converse. By Warwick Fairfax C~)NE of the great joys in going to the opera is to be free of the film convention that vice and evil must never be allowed to triumph. Not because I like vice, but because I dis- like hypocrisy. It pleases the sense of dramatic realism to see the Duke of Mantua strolling oil at the end with his arm around his girl observing tunefully that woman is as flighty as a feather in the wind, being careful, incidentally, not to walk so fast as' to be out of earshot before his aria is finished. Blissfully unconscious that two of his ill-used mistresses have just saved him from a horrible death, one at the cost of her life: one feels that he will go merrily on like thal to the end of his days. You can picture him doddering in an armchair and, when his grandson mentions women, starting off again like a cracked old gramophone record, "l.a donna," etc.; ( admiring relatives saying to each other, "Wonderful old man. grand- father, must have had a gay time lon...

A NEW SUNDAY PAPER IS LAUNCHED [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

A NEW SUNDAY PAPER IS LAUNCHED ?TN its first issue a newspaper f" normally owes to the public on whose support it must rely some explanation of the reasons for its publication and the pur- poses it hopes to serve. . This obligation is, perhaps, less .obvious in the present case, since "The Sunday Herald" is in essence an extension into the -Sunday field of "The Sydney Morning Herald," with whose character and aims as a news- paper readers during more than three generations have been familiar. The standards set by the "Herald" over so long a period will be the basic guarantee of authority, accuracy and fair- ness in the Sunday edition. - Nevertheless, "The Sunday .Herald" is a new enterprise in a highly competitive sphere. It is published in the belief that there is a strong and hitherto unsatis- fied demand for a Sunday paper which will give a thorough cover- age of the news, at home and abroad, together with authorita- tive interpretation of events. It appears at a.time when the ne...

CAT'S AIR TRIP TO N.Z FLURRIED PORT OFFICIALS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

CAT'S AIR TRIP TO N.Z FLURRIED PORT OFFICIALS AUCKLAND, Jan. 22 (A.A.P.-Reutcr).-A pet cat, "Troddles," to-day made history by crossing the Tasman from Sydney in a flying-boat. Its illegal trip caused conster-l nation amongst health and air- ways officials at Auckland. Two passengers, Mr. and Mrs. D. S. Moore, carried the cat in their hand luggage-when they boarded the flying-boat in Sydney They apparently did not know they were breaking regulations. A stewardess found the cat as the plane was taking off, but the captain decided not to turn back. "Troddles" is now in isolation in Auckland. Airways officials were advised by radio that the cat was on its way. One said: "We've been running around in small circles wondering what to do about,it." The port stock inspector at first said Troddles might have to be destroyed. That would depend on the health authorities. "Troddies" was finally allowed ashore with its owners on the condition it was isolated. Mr. and Mrs. Moore brought "Troddies...

La Beach Had Only Self To Blame [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

La Beach Had Only Self To Blame By .UM CARLTON, Australian representative at the 1928 Olympic Games Lloyd La Beach had no one but himself to blame for the loose anchorage of his starting blocks at the S.C.G. yesterday. I He tested them before- I hand and was apparently quite satisfied. It would be -a pity to detract from the merit of Herb Mc iKcnley's win by stressing this accident. New South Wales hopes Edwin Carr and Charlie Campbell ran disappointingly in yesterday's 220 yards championship. Carr lacked brilliance and did not look nearly so impressive as when he won the 440 yards title last week. * Campbell had an off-day, though he ran well in the medley relay. Herb. McKenley gave a superb exhibition of sustained running to win the 220 yards champion- ship in record time. The evenness of McKenley's run was its outstanding charac- teristic. John Bartram, of Victoria, who was second to McKenley, also broke the Australian record. Bartram is a courageous and vigorous runner of greift...

Something of the Glamour of Royally Surrounds The Appearance on . the Golf Course of The Fabulous HENRY COTTON By IRVINE DOUGLAS THE car park of the ven- erable Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club (President, the Earl of Athlone, ex-captain, the Duke of Windsor) con- tains at week-ends the usual collection of cars that you find these days atan English golf club: Vintage vehicles mostly of the pre-war era. with an odd later and not very expensive model. But occasionally the mediocrity of the collection is relieved by the arrival of a large shining black Rolls-Royce. The driver of this car does not park it amongst the rag tag-and-bobtail of the car park."

AUSTRALIA'S "GREY PLAGUE" GOES UNCHECKED Rabbits May Cause Disaster By Our Land Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

AUSTRALIA'S "GREY PLAGUE" GOES UNCHECKED 1 Rabbits May Cause Disaster By Our Land Editor Australia's rabbit plague has now reached such propor- tions that our wool industry-the most important in the Com- monwealth-is in grave peril. To-day in Australia there are about 100 million sheep. If there is a drought, the rabbits will get most of what feed there is, and we «ould lose mil* lions of sheep in six months. In one year of such a , drought, half of our merino flocks could disappear. That would be a national disaster. The wool clip this season is ex- pected to sell for about £180 million. The rabbits could reduce this to £90 million or less. On the opposite page of this issue is published a number of pictures showing the extent of the rabbit plague on the cenfral western plains. I They are significant pictures, i They tell the "first chapter of what may be a great Australian tragedy. They were taken on Egelabra and Wamdianna. Egelabra is owned by H. E. Kater and Son.1 It is one of t...

Crowds Swarm To Manly Mardi Gras [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

Crowds Swarm To Manly Mardi Gras Manly's ambitiously-titled Mardi Gras got away to a fine start yesterday. At night, estimates of the crowd varied between 100,000 and 150,000. Bing Crosby will officially open the Mardi Gras by radio-telephone from Hollywood to-night. The Mardi Gras is a super carnival in aid of Manly chari- ties. It will last 10 days. The organisers hope it will gross £.100,000. They plan an annual event. The R.S.P.CA. objection to the proposed ducks hunt was a wind that blew good to the Far West Children's Home. The president, Mr. W. R. Nicholas, found himself with 50 ducks on his hands. So he passed them over to Matron Hill of the home.   A stunt proposed for next Wed- nesday night, in which a girl will take a bath in milk opposite the Manly ferry wharf, has brought complaints about waste of valuable milk. Mr. Nicholas said last night: "The show will go on; we will give the milk to the cats' and dogs' homes." Rain threatened the success of the carniva...

Fliers Harried Petersham Walker, 5 for 29, Did Remainder Of Damage [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

Fliers Harried Petersham Walker, 5 for 29, Bid Remainder Of Damage A display of formation flying by R.A.A.F. Mustangs over Manly Oval may have had some- thing to do with Petersham's low score of 139 against Manly. However, a sustained bowl- ing effort by State fast left- hander, Alan Walker, made this aid unnecessary Off 14 overs, Walker took five wickets for 29, three wickets fall ing to his last four balls With any luck, his figures would have been much better several chances in slips being just out of reach to fieldsmen The wicket did not play true Many otherwise normal deliveries kicked high In Granger's first over Trazei was hit on the bick of the head In the fifth, Burke was hit over the heart Miller bowled well under his normal pace, until in his fifth over he set an attacking field and worked'up speed. . Immediately, he brought one in sharply from the off, the bats- man drawing back and not at- tempting to play thc^ball. This gave Miller his only wicket. Yeates and Pearce we...

ARGENTINA'S SECRET QUINS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

ARGENTINA'S SECRET QUINS By G. CROMARTY BLOOM 'in Buenos Aires ARGENTINA would never have known about her now world-famous quin- tuplets had it not becn.for the indiscretion of a schoolboy. Even to-day, although the five-year-old Diligenti quins live with their family on a bustling Buenos Aires boule- vard, Argentines know very little about them other than that they exist. Although the Diligenti quin- tuplets were born on July 15, 1943, nothing was known about them until eight months later-except, of course, by the gossiping neighbourhood ser- vants and the local tradesmen, including the milkman, who left 200 bottles a month for them. It was not until Ar- mando, Señora Diligenti's son by a previous marriage, let slip a remark in school to an American friend that the secret was out. For a week Senor Diligenti stood at the door of his home fighting off newspapermen and photographers, cabinet mini- sters and hordes of the idle .curious, while Buenos Aires sputtered with excitement and ...

THE young man called Erin Moore, the same one who was noted in the town for his -way with dogs, sat with his friends, Jack and Adam, in ringside seats at a matinee of the cir- cus. They watched the early acts, and waited. They were waiting for Senor Juan Lopez and his Nubian Lions. The band played, and the big cage was wheeled into posi- tion. The ringmaster announc- ed the act, and the trumpets played, and Senor Lopez marched into the ring. An attendant carried ? his whip. Two lions came through the chutes into the big cage. A lioness followed. The two lions kept away from her. "And those are the babies you reckon you could man- age?" Jack said to Erin.

DOBELL THINKS ARCHIBALD PRIZE HARMFUL [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949

DOBELL THINKS ARCHIBALD PRIZE HARMFUL "The Archibald prize has done nothing for art, but is a deterrent," William Dobell, winner of this year's competition, said yesterday. "It has developed a false   emphasis on effort, and brought out the competitive spirit, which is not conducive to art. ' "I feel it has done a lot of harm by destroying the co-operative spirit of artists. "This friendly spirit is essential in the production of fine works. "The £500 prize-money is too big. It has fostered ill-feeling. "The award should not be con- fined to portraits. Portraits are outmoded. The word portrait sug- gests something hanging in town halls and council chambers. "If the competition were on broader' lines, covering art, it would be more desirable" said Mr. Dobell. "ARTISTS PLEASED" The Supervisor of Art, Depart- ment of Education, Mr. John Dabron, said yesterday artists were very pleased with Dobell's winning picture.

COMPETITION IN SHOWS » Clean-up Needed, Says R.S.L. The Returned Servicemen's League will form a Showmen's League in opposition to the Showmen's Guild of Australasia. It will be built around the carnival the R.S.L. bought re- cently and will seek sole rights to space at country shows. The State Secretary of the R.S.L., Mr. J. R. Lewis, said last night: "A clean-up of the sideshow business at city, suburban, and country shows is long overdue. "There is a conglomeration of persons called the Showmen's Guild. Some of its members are reputable, conscientious citizens, giving the public a fair deal. "A number of others of very doubtful character appear on the grounds with all sorts of contrap- tions such as the dice game, crown and anchor boards, and darts to fleece the public.
