ATHLETICS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916
ATHLETICS By ARGUS. As the N.S.W. Amateur Athletic Association has decreed that no State championships shall be decided during the war, this afternoon j race at Randwick Racecourse has been styled | the Metropolitan cross-country Onampion iship. It is a distinction with no real differ ence— in the amateur athletic world of this State all the clubs are centred in Sydney and suburbs, ami ».ine-tenths of the competitors reside in the metropolitan area, too. Thus, although to-day's race is dubbed the | first Metropolitan C.C.C. it may be discussed , as if it were the 26th annual C.C.C. of N.S.W. Some little time back it looked as if the race | would be of special interest, as at least one ; military team was announced to compete , therein', but seemingly all attempts by the A.A.A. to cater for the military men are doomed to almost complete failure. To-day there will be no military team in action, and with but one club entered for the teams' race, : affairs pointed in the direction of at...
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETICS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETICS The race between the Misses Bessie Grande mange, of Masco-., and Hazel Meers, of Mud gee, lar.: Saturday for the women's 100-yards championship of N.S.W., provided a rare race, and a world's record. Those who knew the speed capacity of the sixteen-year-old girl from Mascot did not give Miss Mecrs much of a a mighty close race. Howevet, it is probable that the challenger tired herself a good deal by her breaks over, especially as on one occasion she went the full course at top speed, not hearing the recall. Miss Btssie is very fast off the mark, but the starter evidently thought she beat the gun, and declared it 'no start.' Miss Meers took her defeat, and loss of toe title, in fine sporting spirit. That the winner was through the worsted in llisecs, which beats what is gener ally supposed to be the world's record by Jsec, does not surprise me in the least, for all the conditions were favorable except that the track v.'as dead. At the annual meeting of the N.S.W...

FOULSHAM'S EPSOM STRING WELL REPRESENTED. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916
FOULSHAM'S EPSOM STRING WELL REPRESENTED. The chances are I. Foulsham't string get more Press notices than any other three strings at Randwick, but I suppose I. Foulsham has become so uied to it now that he doesn't mind. However, this is the 'curse' of having good horses in your stable. Foulsham has eight representatives in the Epsom, they being: rt 1b (t IS Woorak ? 10 t Coli:jo ? 7 3 Kin«r»bijrrh ? S 10 i:j'rn ? r- 12 Virf. IMncipIe . . .. « « licit' ? IE -vdlan ?

Kingsburgh also looks in tip-top order and will run a good race the next time he sports silk. He appears to have quite got over his trouble of last Spring. Ancther trainer with a large team in the Epsom is F. McGrath, who also has eight, but included in the list is Welkin Queen, who is to start on a spell almost immediately. As it may be of interest, his representatives in the Epsom are appended: 5; lb it Ib S...

C. W. Wright ranks as one of the most for midable doubles players the Commonwealth has produced. It is a treat to see him volleying at the net, no shot being absent from his reper tory, his strokes being all clean and hard. With Dr. Sharp he won the doubles championship for three years, and his subsequent partner ship with A. B. Jones has been equally pro lific of successes. Just now he is partnered with W. A.

LEAGUE IN COURT CASE. Next week, at the Tamworth District Court, the dispute between the League of Wheelmen and the local Caledonian Society in regard to the payment of prize-money will be decided. The case is arousing a lot of interest. It appears that one set of handicaps was issued, ^,,ri «:-.. T.f-nrnr recretarv. who did them — tho handicapper being out of town 'at'th£'tirtieu— subsequently discovered that lie had rnade: a mistake in regard to the marks of certain riders.

EXPLOSIVE GOLF BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916
EXPLOSIVE GOLF BALL. I had the queer experience of a young golfing friend recalled to me t'.ic other day (writes a Manchester scribe) when I read in a Mon treal paper the pjrticulars of a singular liti gation which had taken place over a golf ball. Sonu years ago a ball was placed upon the market, one of the virtues of which was some linuirl rh(»miral mnttrr rpntricallv located with in rubber binding. It was declared to be a very good article. However, when the husk be came damaged and unserviceable, a favorite process with inquisitive golfers was to examine the internal construction, and not everybody was successful in dodging the liquid as it squirted fiom the incision. In the first case in point, the episode happened at Carnoustie, and ended in the Huid matter exuding on to the investigator's cheek; fortunately, it missed his eyes, thtugh it gave him a fright. In the instance recorded in the Montreal paper, the examiner had not been so lucky. Here, however, arr the facts: — NEWAR...

Terry Kellar, the heavyweight pugilist we know in Australia, was robbed of a gold watch and 10 dollars by a bandit who boarded a Union Pacific passenger train near Hanna, Wyoming, some little time back, so the re port goes. Bletzer and Kellar were on their way lo Ogdcn. Utah., where Kcllar was scheduled to fight Jack Dcmpsey. Ogden is Kellar s home town, and he was looking forward eagerly to his return, having visions of a welcome that would do hi3 heart good. The preliminary welcome accorded him at Hanna was some what disconcerting. Bletzer was lucky. He not only escaped being held up,' but while all the trouble was going on he slept the sleep of a tired man. Bletzer and Kellar were seated in the obser vation car discussing things in general. Blet zcr's eyelids became droopy. He said good night to his protege and went to his berth. As the train passed Hanna the bandit ap peared at the door of the o...

As an example of the pro ducer's art, The Cheat is a triumph for Director Cecil B. De Mille. Selig's r reduction of The Ne'er-do-WelL showing at West's, is as fine a film as The Spoilers; and the same company, headed by Kathlyn Williams and Wheeler Oakrr.an is re-' sponsible for the playing of the drama. Rex Beach's stories are deservedly popular, consequently the film adaptation of this one is being extensively patronised by the Mel bourne public.

In his hard fight against work the little comedian blows into a big department slore, and after creating considerable havoc among the goods, has a little scrap with the csculator, which lands him in the manager's office. It appears that manager and shopwalker are a pair of crooks, who conspire to relieve the firm o£ some of its surplus cash. They learn that the detectives arc on the trail, and decide to split even and get away. The shopwalker, avaricious fellow, is not satisfied with his share, and forthwith taps the manager on the head with a drawer, grabs the cash, and rushes out of the office. It is here that he gets the shock of his life, for there, opposite, i_ his living; double. Charles also shows incredulity, and after ascertaining by novel methods that he is not looking in a mirror,...
