L.T.A.A. Asks Money For Wimbledon Visit [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
L.T.A.A. Asks Money For Wimbledon Visit . --^ fHE All-England Tennis Club has received a * request from the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia for additional finance towards the expenses for the proposed Wimbledon visit of Bromwich, Sidwell, Sedgman and Worthington. This is stated in a message from our Staff Corres- pondent in London. A spokesman for the All-England Club said a special committee ivas now considering the request, and a decision would be announced within the next few weeks. Unofficially it is considered that England will increase its contribution towards the players' expenses, as the Australians were a big draw-card to the last Wimbledon championships. An A.A.T. message from New York says the Davis Cup Committee has announced that 26 nations, including Australia, have challenged for 1949. Australia, Canada, Cuba and Mexico will\ play in the north American zone. One of the new entries for the European zone is South Africa.

ALICE in WONDERLAND Adapted & Illustrated by Nan Fullarton [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
WHEN SHE TURNED THE CORNER THE RABBIT WAS NO LONGER TO BE SEEN AND ALICE FOUND HERSELF IN A LONG. LOW HALL. LIT BY LAMPS. THERE WERE DOORS ALL ROUND THE HALL. BUT THEY WERE ALL LOCKED. AND WHEN ALICE HAD BEEN ALL THE WAY DOWN ONE SIDE AND UP THE OTHER. TRYING EVERY DOOR. SHE WALKED SADLY DOWN THE MIDDLE. WONDERING HOW SHE WAS EVER TO GET OUT AGAIN. SUDDENLY SHE CAME UPON A LITTLE THREE LEGGED TABLE MADE OF GLASS. THERE WAS NOTHING ON IT BUT A TINY GOLDEN KEY. THIS MIGHT BELONG TO ONE OF THE DOORS. THOUGHT ALICE. BUT ALAS! IT WOULD NOT OPEN ANY OF THEM. THE SECOND TIME ROUND ALICE CAME UPON A LOW CURTAIN BEHIND"WHICH WAS A LITTLE DOOR ABOUT 15 INCHES HIGH. SHE TRIED THE LITTLE GOLDEN KEY IN THE LOCK. AND TO HER GREAT DELIGHT. IT FITTED! THE DOOR LED INTO A SMALL PASSAGE. NOT VERY MUCH LARGER THAN A RAT-HOLE. SHE KNELT DOWN AND LOOKED ALONG THE PASSAGE INTO THE LOVELIEST GARDEN YOU EVER SAW.

Some Hints About INVESTMENTS By The Finance Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Some Hints About, fö| INVI INVESTMENTS «5. i Wak* ¡ü By The Finance Editors: IT'S not so unusual to bump into an English banker, stockbroker, or trustee manager, in Pitt Street these days. - Their presence here is one of the signs that discerning English investors are taking up Australian securities on a growing scale. Admittedly, they get better yields from the new double tax agreement. But they are satis- fying themselves about this country's basic soundness, and its long-term potentialities. Their opinions would surprise some of the gloomy local in- vestors whom I know. . . '. PORTFOLIOS of some life * offices and institutions ^re beginning to bulge with ordinary shares. If the Treasurer announces a lower bond rate on Monday, their share buying will have to increase still further. pRE-ELECTION tax cuts -*? rumoured. If we're not again to be disappointed by their inadequacy, dividends will be more' worthwhile, and some directors may respond with better distributions. . . . "VTEED,...

TAX EXPERT TELLS— Why London Buys Our Shares [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
TAX EXPERT TELLS Why London Buys Our Shares &lt;T\\XAT10N plays an important part in the expanding pur- chases 'of Australian ordinary shares by English investors. Comparison of dividends and market quotations would make one think that yields were.higher on British than on Australian shares. 0 Such a comparison does not give the true picture. It does not allow for the effects of the taxa- tion agreement between the United Kingdom and Australia. Under Article V[ (3), the amount of Commonwealth tax payable on an Australian dividend received by J. A. L. GUNN, the writer of this article, is a well-known tax consultant aid author of the standard text-book on Common- wealth Income Tax. . a resident of the United Kingdom is reduced by one-half. Thd United Kingdom agreed un- der Article X11 (1) that in its assess- ment on the dividend it would give credit for: (a) The Australian tax on the dividend; and (b) in the case of ordinary dividends, the Australian tax payable by the company...
Canada Winning Dollar Battle From Our New York Office [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Canada Winning Dollar Battle From Our New York Office CANADA, which has had its fair share of dollar troubles, is finally out of the woods, but she paid a price for this privileged position. By December, 1947, her "hard" money reserves had dropped to 461 million dollars. To-day they are about 1,000 million. She celebrated the event by an- nouncing last week the unfreezing of the balance of her post-war dollar loan to Britain. This loan totalled 1,250 million dollars. Last April the balance still due of 235 millions was frozen. One of the wryest jokes told.in the Dominion last winter was that if you dined out and were served leaf lettuce or orange it was good form not to eat them. Your hostess would expect to use these items again. . This'was by way of emphasis- ing the virtual embargo placed by the Canadian Government on fruits and vegetables, as well as thousands of kinds of manufac- tured goods from the United States. It was part of the heroic effort to build up the Dominion's rap...
Girls "Fly" Planes In Air Traffic Experiments [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Girls "Fly" Planes In Air Traffic Experiments MISS AVIS BUCKNALL, a second-year Arts student, acting as a "pilot" in an experiment in air traffic control being conducted in the C.S.I.R. Radio Physics Laboratory at Sydney University. FOURTEEN girls-most of them University students on vacation-arc taking part in experiments in air traffic control being conducted in the C.S.I.R. Radio Physics Laboratory at Sydney University. They are helping to determine how modern air navigation aids, such as radio ranges and radar equipment, can best be used. Each girl takes the role of a pilot in an imaginary plane. She sits at a bench with equipment for controlling the speed and the steering of a piece of mechanism, from which a spot of light, repre- senting her plane, is cast on a chart. When "flying," her job is to control the movement of the s>pot of light along lines on the chart which represent radio beams. She receives telephone messages through car-phones from control officers, telling he...
Producers "Bleed" Theatre Elsie Beyer On Profits From our London Office [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Producers "Bleed" Theatre Elsie Beyer On Profits From, our London Office 0 SOME Australian theatre owners and producers are "bleeding" the theatre, accord- ing to Miss Elsie Beyer, who ran the business side of the Old Vic's Australian tour last year. Miss Beyer thinks these owners are taking all the profits out of the theatre and putting nothing back for the public. In June Miss Beyer will return to Australia to make preliminary arrangements to establish her own permanent theatre company here. She considers it is time the Do- minion theatre managers realise that as directors of an art they are under an obligation to foster its growth-not view it solely as a profit-making venture. Miss Beyer points out that in England producers and theatre owners set aside portion of their profits for the firm and put the remainder back into the theatre to improve stage facilities and to finance new and better produc- tions. "Up till now," she said, in an interview a few days ago, "Aus- tralian theat...

The New Dimension Arts Of Yesterday In The Melting Pot [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
The New Dimension ? .By Neville Carchis Arts Of Yesterday In The Melting Pot Since 1914 ive have witnessed a revolution iii ideas and general civilisation not equalled in history; it could not possibly have been equalled, . because the world is noivadays more complex and multifarious than ever before. THE French Revolution in comparison was a momen- tary rippling of a deep well established pool; there was quickly a reaction, not to say a restoration. The social philosophy, the ideo- logies and ethics of Rousseau and the Encyclopaedists were coun- tered in England by Burke and in France by Chateaubriand, and in Germany by the Hegelians. There has been no reaction against the revolution which be- gan in 1914, and, indeed, we are already able to realise that what has happened, and is still hap- pening to us all, must be regarded not simply as an upheaval of established values, but as a tran- sition into a new dimension and nothing less. The most modern thinker of 1914, dying in that ye...
'Capt. Phillip' Lands Again [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
4Capt. Phillip' Lands Again IN honour of Australia Day, members of the Palm Beach Surf Life Saving Club re-enacted the landing of Captain Phillip at their fancy dress dance held at the Pacific Club last night. Captain Phillip, played by Mr. i Bill Kerr, and Mrs. Phillip, played by Mr. Peter Tamlin, with their crew were scheduled to be met by hostile blacks when they tried to land, on the beach outside the club house. ?* But when the blacks arrived the surf-boat had .capsized and the Phillipses in their glory were sit- ting forlornly in the water. The other 350-odd guests, how- ever,' applauded loudly and a tri- umphal procession strode through the gates on to the lantern-lit lawn and into the club house to start the dancing, which continued until 4.30 this morning. Guests who. were so inclined then went for an early morning swim and returned to the club breakfast. Mr .and Mrs. Laurie Morgan, of Redbank, Scone,-who have taken "Kookaburra" at Palm Beach for a month, arrived as Jan and...
