Ironworkers Say Match Wasn't Cricket [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
Ironworkers Say Match Wasn't Cricket ADELAIDE, Saturday.-The South Australian branch of the Federated Ironworkers' Associa- tion believes that class differences should extend even to cricket. &nbsp; ' It has protested about a cricket match played last Wednesday be- tween teams representing the Ade- laide Trades Hall and the Ade- laide Chamber of Manufactures. The Trades Hall team won the match. The assistant secretary of the Ironworkers' Association, Mr. N. McLean, said to-day that such functions would nullify attempts to combat the new log of claims put forward by employers. The annual meeting of the State branch of the union resolved to dissociate itself from the match, which had been proposed as an &nbsp; annual event.
FACTIONS CLASH Politics In Railways [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
FACTIONS CLASH Politics In Railwavs A bitter clash is expected at a meeting of the council of the Railway Transport Officers Association in Sydney tomorrow night over &nbsp; the Association's attitude to- wards the Railway Commis-sioner, &nbsp; Mr F.C. Garside. Some branches have &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; accused the council of 'inciting officers of the department to be disloyal to the to the commissioner,' and instructed them to call for a mass meet- -ing of the rank and file to determine the association's attitude. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Responsible officers of the depart- ment said last week that sections of the salaried officer s staff were 'seething with discontent as a result of the association's declared policy. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; They claimed the clash of opinions had already created friction among staff officers - the key men in the service.

THE WEEK IN POLITICS If Mr. Chifley Goes, Who Will By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
THE WEEK IN POLITICS If Mr. Chifley Goes, Who Will Follow ? By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT Possibilities of a change in the leader- ship of the Labour Party after this year's Federal elections are being canvassed in poli- &nbsp; tical circles as the Commonwealth Parliament j gears itself for what promises to be one of the stormiest sessions in its history. MR. CHIFLEY'S claim to leadership is unassailed and unassailable, but some observers consider it possible that he will voluntarily stand down after the elections for a younger man. His guiding consideration in this, as in all matters, will un- doubtedly be the best interests of the Labour Party as he sees them. He is a sincere man, and even his bitterest political enemies have never accused Mr. Chifley of per- sonal ambition. The Prime Minister is now 63. The strain of the past crowded year has told on him. At the close of the last marathon session he looked and obviously was a tired man. He faces the prospect of lead- ing ...
RELIGION AND LIFE We Are Dodging The Basic Things In Life [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
RELIGI ON AND LIFE &nbsp; We Are Dodging The Basic Things In Life By ALAN WALKER If I were asked which prob- lem is most frequently raised by those who come to mv office in personal diffi culty. I would say-"the problem of how to find mean- ing and purpose of living." Sometimes it is an issue which lies obviously on the surface of people's minds, sometimes it must be uncovered beneath some smaller frustration or disappoint- ment. ' ' I am sure it means that one of the characteristics of our age is a loss of certainty as to the funda- mental meaning of life. Hosts of us can no longer state with any clear conviction what life is for or where we are all supposed to be going. Most of us, of course, most of the time get along without having to face up to such basically dis- turbing issues. Modern life has worked out to a fine art methods of absorbing our passing interests and stopping us ' thinking seri- ously. Motion pictures, radio programmes, and much of our literature provide...

BAHAMAS The Stampman continues his "A.B.C." of British stamps. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
BAHAMAS The Stämpman continues his "A.B.C." of British stamps. TO commemorate the 300th anniversary of the settle- ment of the Bahamas, a set of 16 stamps was issued in 1948. The values range from id to £1. AU depict island scenes. The Bahamas are made up of 29 islands and .many small islets. San Salvador has the distinc- tion of being the island on which Columbus first set foot in 1492. The 450th anniversary of his landing was celebrated in 1942 with the overprinting of the cur- rent stamps of the Bahamas. Nassau, the capital, famous for its underwater sea-gardens, is featured on the current 4d stamp. The island's chief wealth comes from Us tourist trade and sponge industry. During the war the Duke of Windsor acted as Governor. On the 8d blue and scarlet stamp illustrated above, you can see flamingoes in flight. Many of the islands shelter great rookeries of these birds. The Bahamas use British currency.

A QUERY A Tiger and a little Lamb Were strolling round the Zoo; The Tiger scratched his head and said "My Lamb what would you do // a Lion came towards us (With dripping jaws, of course) And balanced on his wicked nose A jug of rich mint sauce?"

Won't all depend .which .one of you Can climb that tall tree first?" -T. STUART GURR
TRICK YOUR FRIENDS WITH PAPER RINGS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
TRICK YOUR FRIENDS WITH PAPER RINGS By "MERLIN" FOR this simple and amusing trick you will need only three strips of paper about an inch wide and eight feet long. A sixpenny streamer bought from the paper-shop will cut into suitable lengths. BEFORE YOU PRESENT THE TRICK: Form each strip into a long hoop, or ring, and stick the ends together with gum. Leave the rings conveniently in a heap on the table while you do other tricks, then pick them up casually and say: v "Will anyone here join me in a competition? These three paper rings are the same size and exactly alike. I'll cut this one down the centre into two separate rings. Two bob to anyone who can do the same without making a mistake." You should have no trouble in j getting two rival competitors, as this sounds absurd. If you have three pairs of scissors and can stage a race so much the better. HOW IT LOOKS: The three contestants (you and two others) start cutting away down the middle of the streamers, and pre ' sently the job ...
DOWN THE FAIRWAYS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
DOM X THE FAIRWAYS I BV PROSPER ELLIS ' Pymble club is experimenting with hor- mones to stimulate the growth of couch grass to be planted on new fairways. ' I T is said that when hor mones are applied to tee grass it grows with very little sunlight. Bent, being an English grass, does not require treatment for this reason, as it flourishes in partial shade. Bill Whetton, one of the club's c\ergreen and original members, lately returned an excellent card ot net 64 off the 16 mark. Mem- bers are wondering if he has been visiting the club's hormone ONCE a year we hear the same tale about George Dennett, ex-champion of Bonnie Doon. During the year he takes his golf lightly and obtains sym- pathetic treatment from the handicapped. At-Christmas his vacation is rather long and he returns to form, with the result that his name appears high up on the score sheets. His swing remains as fast as ever, but, being a natural player with good foot- work, he retains his balance well, ?K * * ]\JANY lo...
Surf Boats Capsize And Blood Flows At Manly Carnival [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Surf Boats Capsize And Blood Flows At Manly Carnival With his face covered in blood, John Norton, a South Narrabeen boat crew member, was assisted from the water at Manly surf carnival yesterday.' He was struck by an oar when his boat came broad side to a wave and over- turned. Two shark alarms interrupted the carnival swimming programme for nearly 30 minutes. Observers in an Army work boat, in radio-telephone conversa- tion with a detachment of Second Division signallers at the official enclosure, gave the warn- ing. Competitors in surfboat events said that a baiely-submerged sandbar about 40 yards from the beach and a strong southerly sweep made full control difficult. More than a dozen boats cap- sized or were swamped during the afternoon. In the third heat of the senior surfboat race, South Narrabeen and Collaroy sweeps lost control. Their boats turned in towards each other and collided. Both capsized on a shallow bank and men and oars were swept overside. Jim Armstrong, a Colla...
PROVES BEST JUNIOR [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
PROVES BEST JUMOR ADELAIDE, Saturday. Eighteen - year - old Clive Wilderspin (Perth) has proved himself Australia's best junior tennis player. His defeat of Gordon Hannam in the final of the boys' singles here to-day won him the Sir Norman Brookes|s Cup. Sir Norman Brookes, who gave the cup as an incentive to young players, said when he presented it to Wilderspin: "Australia will see more of you if you remain in tennis." Sir Norman Brookes's state- ment is supported by Wilderspin's excellent tournament perform- ances. This talented Western Australian has not lost a set in Linton Cup or champion- ship matches. ' Australia's selectors are not blind to Wilderspin's possibilities and have invited him to say if he were available for selection in the Australian team for South Africa. Wilderspin, however, is more interested in industry than in tennis, and he will not be avail- able for any oversea trips until he has finished his engineering course._
BLIZZARDS TRAP FARMERS IN U.S.A. STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
BLIZZARDS TRAP FARMERS IN U.S.A. STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. NEW YORK, January 29. Three State Governors to-day ap- pealed to the U.S. Army to come to the aid of hundreds of farming families in the blizzard-swept West. Mr. Andy Clark, a councillor in Nebraska State, said: "The families are completely isolated by great snowdrifts, and nothing has been heard from them for weeks. "There is hunger and starva- tion. These stricken people can't even scavenge for food. "Their larder and fuel supplies are exhausted." President Truman signed a bill to-day, bringing the disaster relief fund for blizzard areas in South Dakota, Nebraska, Utah, and Wyoming to 800,000 dollars (£A250,400). "TOO SMALL" He indicated that this amount was too small and that he would ask Congress for more. Governor Val Peterson, of Nebraska, to-day telegraphed President Truman: "Human suf- fering is increasing, deaths are continuing, losses to cattle are mounting, and the potential losses are staggering. "In my judg...
