Tariffs Empire Trade Appeal [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

. Tarif ts Empire Trade Appeal LOP!DON, Saturday. Thc Conservative Party conference at Margate yesterday urged greater Empire tariff discrimina- tion. The conference applauded a vigorous advocacy of Im- perial preference by. 79 year-old Mr. Leopold Am- ery, former Cabinet Minis- ter. In a resolution, it urged early steps to modify inter- national agreements such as GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade). Mr. Amery said the Con- servatives went to the coun- try two years Ugo pledged to maintain Imperial- prefer- ences. Two years had passed and nothing had been done. "Let us have the courage of our convictions and make ourselves free," he said, amid applause. Menzies Called For Revision Mr. Amery accused the Government of telling the Dominions that it would re- move Commonwealth trade restrictions and telling GATT that it would not. The Australian Prime Minister, Mr. Menzies, had made it clear that GATT should be revised to free the Commonwealth for develop- ing mutual trade. T...

SUN-HERALD GARDEN SECTION Go Carefully With Topdressing [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Ge Carefully With Topdressing By "WARATAH" LAWNS ARE much in mind just now, in spite of dry times along thc coastline. Wheelbarrows, flat rakes, sand, soft top-dressing soil, and sprink \ lers are the order of the day. TT pays to topdrcss loose * and worn lawns in springtime. But the soil medium for this work should be carefully cho- sen. Its source should be known. Confidence in . your con- tractor is imperative. I recently saw a nice new lawn in a North Shore garden ruined with onion-weed. It' was brought in with a slap- dash load of soil. Years of patient pulling and finicky finding of large and small bulbs lies ahead of the gardener. I I would rather have a pie- bald, poor surfaced lawn than a massed introduction of the world's worst weed pests, onion weed and oxalis. Of course, you may be lucky and only get amar- anths, docks, dandelion and cape-weed. All these are easily re- moved with weeding-fork in good time, or if treated with 2-4D selective weedicidc. It seems a dismal pi...

'JUST FRIENDS' Gable Says He is NOT Engaged From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

'JUST FRIENDS' FILM star Clark Gable walks arm in arm along the Champs Elysees with beautiful Suz- anne Dadolle. Miss Dadolle is known as Schiapar- elli's mannequin. She announced her engagement to Gable this week. Gable Says He is NOT Engaged From Our Staff Correspondent LONDON, Saturday.-Clark Gable to-day emphatically denied claims by the Paris mannequin Suzanne Dadolle, 27, that she is engaged to him. Gable's remarks when he saw the alleged en- gagement announced in London papers, were unprintable. 1 spoke to M.G.M.'s London publicity manager, Mr. Paul Mills, by tele- phone last night. He was with Gable at the Hotel Amstel, in Amster- dam, their base while filming "TheTrue And The Brave"     in Holland with Lana Turner. Speaking for Gable, Mills said: "Talk of Clark's en- gagement is absolute non- sense. "Neither Gable nor I knew anything about it until we saw papers carry- ing Miss Dadolle's story." Mills admitted that Gable possibly gave Miss Dadolle ...

Bride For Methuselah From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Bride For Methuselah From Our Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Sat.-America's oldest bridegroom-claiming to be 111 - has just taken another wife, aged 22. He is a six-foot, 2001b Negro, Alec Ogman, of North Carolina. He says he was born on a slave ship on its way from Africa and is "the last of the Afircan slaves." When Alec and the girl he wanted to marry - he could not remember her name without prompting - went to the county seat at New Bern to take out the licence, he set the crowded courthouse in an uproar. "They was a-laugh¡n' and     hollerin' and callin' folks in," said the bridegroom. Alec, who has 46 child- ren by previous marriages, which he thinks numbered "about a dozen," explained how he wooed and won his latest bride. "I used to take her a little candy," he said. "Love don't mean nothing to me now, but I just wanted a woman to be with and to   wash and cook." Mrs. Ogman put it a different way. "It was love at first sight," she said. ...

Prisoners' Plea In Blood NEW YORK, Sat- urday (A.A.P.). - Anti- Communist North Korean prison- ers have written in blood a plea to Presi- dent Syngman Rhee of South Korea. Their message asked for help, and said: "We have reached the stage when wc have taken the last des- perate action.'' The South Korean Gov- ernment revealed this to- day. The message is believed to mean an attempted breakout, and the requested help to mean South Korean military aid. The message alleged that the Indian custodian forces were "inhuman and ex- tremely pro-Communist." Two North Koreans es- caped from the custody of their Indian _ guards to de- liver the message.

Race Starts At Wrong Barrier [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Race Starts At Wrong Barrier A race had to be re-run at Griffith (N.S.W.) last week because horses start- ed from the wrong barrier. The field was sent away from the half-mile instead of the four-and-a-half fur- longs. Stewards noticed the error but before they could notify the starter the race had be- gun. The incident is believed to be unprecedented. When the field passed the winning post the judge was ordered by the stewards not to hoist thc numbers. It wa sthen announced the race would be re-run half an hour later. Amorita, first past the post in the first "race," was beaten a head by Karakee in the re-run.

GOOSSENS' GAMBLE FEATURES MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

GOOSSENS' GAMBLE MUSIC By LINDSEY BROWNE Eugene Goossens, whose musical career has been a series of spectacular gambles, gambled again last week when he left a Sydney hospital bed for a strenuous overseas concert tour. FOR a month, Goossens has been bedded down in plaster to treal : a crippling spinal disorder -a slipped disc-which 1 has afflicted him since he fell backwards into a stair- well at Lismore a year ago. He left for England yes- terday, and with every step he takes, every sudden exer- tion, there is a gambler's anxiety, anxiety as to wheth- er the affliction will strike back at him. But Goossens, though never one of nature's trage- dians as a man, has a Gothic artistic taste. Doom and damnation are decorative ideas that entertain him immensely. For his month in hospital, for instance, it has tickled him to contemplate the shadow of gallows and a noose upon the wall - the shadow thrown by the read- ing-light from behind the overhanging metal ring with which the patient ho...

A Hero, But A Difficult Type [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

A Hero, Bul A Difficult Type Return Ticket - by Anthony Deane Drummond (Collins, London). It is a quirk of human nature that thc most admirable people are often thc most difficult to live with. BY his account-and the man is too trans- parently honest, even naive, to conceal his own character - Anthony Deane-Drummond is an intrepid fellow with per- haps an overplus of initi- ative. But to the average citizen he would be a source of per- petual exasperation. Deane-Driimmond is one of those Englishmen who delights in facing fearful odds, a characteristic which one is never certain whether to. ascribe to superb valour or lack of imagination. He makes a perfect fight- ing.machine, completely un- daunted by obstacles which reason argues are insur- mountable, yet which fact proves are vulnerable. He has faith, vigour, and irrepressible optimism. He is the before-breakfast back- slapper, the life of the party and the eternal undergradu- ate affixing utensils to inac- cessible spires.

V.H.C. Herby . CROWD IS SILENT AT HIS FORM REVERSAL Connaught may now be set for the Victoria Derby at Flemington next month, following his brilliant win in the Clibborn Handicap at Rand- wick yesterday. The colt will have his test as a stayer in City; Tattersalls Cup over a mile and a half at Rand- wick next Saturday. Staging a form reversal which was accepted in silence by racegoers, Con- naught defeated Star Crown by two lengths, with Royal Forest a long head away third. Connaught was heavily backed in the Reginald Allen Handicap at Rand- wick on Monday, but fin- ished only third to Cortauld and Count Roussel. _ On that occasion he was ridden close to the lead most of the way. . The different tactics adop- ted by his rider yesterday were responsible for his win. W. Cook did net bustle him along for the first mile. Consequently Connaught was in last place on the home turn. Then Cook drove him along in the middle of the field and, inside the last fur- long, he emerged from the ruci...
