'Peace In United Democracies' [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 5 July 1950
'Peace In United Democracies' SYDNEY, Tuesday.— Another great war could be prevented only if all the democracies came much more closely together than at present, the Minister for Na tional Development (Mr. Casey) said - today. Mr. Casey was addressing the ?Rotary Club at its American In dependence Day luncheon. There was not very much hope for world peace if the British Democracies and America did hot draw closer together, he said. 'I believe there is every sign of Britain and America again converging to integration.' This, J think, is coming about very rapidly. Unless America con tinues to maintain her lead among the Democracies and re ceives every aid from the other Democracies, you can almost toss a coin about the future of the world,' Mr. Casey said.

SPORT DEGRADED [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 5 July 1950
SPORT DEGRADED IF THE VISITS of international sport ing teams are supposed to cement friendly relationships between the people of the two nations whose sides compete, the current series of the English Rugby League is a howl ing failure. There is fault on both_ sides. It is a dis courtesy that does them no credit and is by no means typical of the friendly Queensland spirit if people on the streets haye 'dKipped' fihe Englishmen to the point of. hostility. And it is a pity the Queensland Rugby League could find no less drastic and challenging method of dealing with Bradshaw's alleged offences than to suspend him. This is making international League history in a very Un pleasant way.
