"Bandbox" is normally broad cast weekly on a Sunday even ing but, owing to various com mitments, it became necessary that two editions with entirely differerit casts should be broad cast on the same day. On( Sun day morning, at ten o'clock, the Orchestra and cast of the first show assembled, rehearsed and 'then did a: triail' "runi.through" of the first performance,.

NEW BUS SERVICE [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 12 April 1950

NEW BUS SERVICE Proprietor of the Smithfield- Parramatta Bus Service, Mr. N. A. McIntosh, last week told Holroyd Council he would be prepared to commence a bus service in Hill Top Road, Merrylands, between Francis and Coleman Streets, when Housing Commission homes in the area were completed. He said a new 40-passenger bus was being built to cater for the needs of: the Hill Top Road area. Mr. McIntosh said he had met a deputation from the North Merrylands Progress Association to discuss the provision of addi- tional buses on the North Merry- lands service. On March 28 last year a 20 minute service was substituted in place of a 30-minute service morning and afternoon. In October additional trips were provided. Mr. McIntosh added that the new service, with the exception of two trips, was not a paying proposition.

NO-ndabate By Guest Columnist "Paddock To Punter" Harry Quigley R ECENTLY I mentioneda dog, Swho, finding himself left be hind at Penrith, went along to the railway station and caught a train to Parramatta.: I said I thought, his name was "Shot."

PARRAMATTA DOWN TO EASTWOOD [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 19 April 1950

PAIRAMATTA DOWN TO EASTWOOD . gastwQod de feated parramatta on Saturday in the .opening game of the 1950 season, after the Sdcal side looked to have Sthe game in the bag. They commenced in great form and territorially had .East _iood penried in theii' own twenty? live most of the first ,half. Boland was cleverly opening' pp play and reversing the ball to his forwards. Two certain tries were missed: through the lack of a fast follow-;, jng forward to take the ball after the half had made the openings' with the line wide open. Until the position can' be rec tified a lot of Boland's good o?ork and unorthodox play will be gone for nought. The first try came when Bol and received from a ruck, broke through, gave the ball to Elliott to Tregarthen, to Armstrong. to. Culey, who ran hard for the corn er and scored. This 'was the position at. half time with Parramatta definitely on top, but it was a different story after the break. Armstrong left the field with a sprained ankle and playing on...

P.S.A.A.A. SEEKS FINANCIAL AID [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 19 April 1950

P.S.A.AA.A SEEKS FINANCIAL AID Parramatta Council has de cided to approach the Minister of Education (Mr. Heffron) on behalf of the Public Schools Amateur Athletic Association for money to help the associa tion hire Cumberland Oval. The association stated it wished to hold a combined carnival on Thursday, August 17. The association said last year it had been forced to hold the carnival at Rosehill racecourse because it could not meet rental charges for --the oval made .,by the Park Trust. The Trust had demanded a rental of £15/15/- a day, plus a deposit of £10 against possible damages. The association said the Trust Ihad later promisea to consider making rental allowances for the children. Nothing further, however, 'had been heard of the matter. The association added that the trust as custodian 'of the major .playing area in- Parramatta should be more reasonable in its attitude' to district schools. ,Exorbitant- charges should not be' made for athletic carnivals staged wholly by sch...

TIN HAT DAY [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 19 April 1950

TIN HAT DAY After 35-years, the dawn .of April 25, 1915, seems remote, especially with the folly of another war to obliterate, this memory and the new generation arises with the memory of a new conflict, but ANZAC-and that Army from a new country which shed its blood in its fight ,against old-world rapacity and prejudice, will still be remem bered. The story of the epic landing and what came afterwards will be written and spoken of for many years. The sorry story . of tactical blunders, the sad story. of heroic, buht needless sacrifice, the failure of: the August- offensive,, the tragedy of Suvla Bay-none of these things can dim the lustre or' the fighting spirit of the Anzac. With the Armistice on: Novem-. ber 11, 1918, it was thought that the War. to, end all. Wars had come to. a. succesful conclusion, but in 1939: the Second. World War began,' and once again the .young, Australians went abroad to. fight for the same cause.: History repeated -itself. in the retreat at Greece; the ...
