MY HERO FIRMS FOR CUP [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

MY MERO FIRMS FOR CUP MELBOURNE, Satur- day.-My Hero came from the tail of the field in the Herbert Power Han- dicap at Caulfield to-day to score a brilliant win. As a result of his defeat of Windsor and Hardway, My Hero will be advanced sharply in the betting for the Caulfield Cup to be run next Saturday. It was My Hero's second outing in Australia since his arrival from New Zealand a few weeks ago. He was ridden by diminu- tive New Zealand jockey j Noel Eastwood, who won the Caulfield Cup on Lin- coln in 1949. My Hero is a six-year-old by' Neptune (imp.) from Otetanui, whom Watson de- scribes as the champion brood mare of New Zea- land. WELL BRED My Hero's owner-trainer, O. F. Watson, was worried about My Hero's position at the half-mile, because the leaders had set such a slow pace. - At his first run after, his arrival from N.Z. My Hero was 10th in the -Underwood Stakes (lm If) won by Fly- ing Halo at Caulfield. The distance was shorter than he likes, and Watson was satisfied wi...

Sea fan Never Happy At C'fieid MELBOURNE, Satur- day.-Sydney filly Seofon was not happy in . her strange surroundings at Caulfield yesterday, and failed badly in the Debu- tante Stakes. She had to be led to the starting point by the clerk of the course. She did not fancy ' the open barrier, and missed the start by about three lengths. Showing brilliant speed,' I and with a beautiful run I through on the fence, she joined the leaders. High Trend and Queen's Vista after a furlong. . The three turned for home on terms, but Ward immedi- ately went for the whip and, with a furlong to go. High Trend had Seofon. beaten. Meanwhile, Williamson, on Loriot, had been beside the leaders. s As he made his move he had tb check Loriot as Queen's Vista, racing very greenly, suddenly veered out.

I RANDWICK- FINISH AND HALF-MILE QUEEN OF ALL, from No. 5, and CELESTIAL GLOW, from No. 13, smart to begin, and passing half-mile Queen of AH led from Celestial Glow, with REGAL WONDER third, NIZAM'S BELLE, KAREN and MISS MAHAL prominent.

FEATURES Criminal Who Posed As A Woman [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Criminal Who Posed As A Woman IN PARRAMATTA Gaol last week a little man with a thin face and an air of constant strain confided to a fellow prisoner that he intended to stay on his best be- haviour until the expira- tion of his sentence next year. It seemed the final act of surrender in a man whom police have watched with more than ordinary care. His name is John Brendon Parker. He is serving a sen- tence of three years for breaking, entering and steal- ing; but, because he has been declared an habitual crimin- al, he will not automatically leave gaol when the sentence expires. Instead, he will be detain- ed "during the Governor's pleasure," which could be described more aptly as the Governor's displeasure. Warders watch Parker with good reason. He made the most sensational escape from police custody in the annals of Sydney crime. With a split second's start, he not only escaped from Sydney, but from Australia and was more than half way to Europe, dressed as a   woman, ...

FEATURES 3 Women Or ONE? [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

3 Women Or ONE? T N 1886, Robert Louis * Stevenson wrote a fantastic story that was to become famous. "The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," he called it. Perhaps because, there is something of Jekyll and Hyde in all of us, this macabre tale of two person- alities in one body-very different personalities, fight- ing for control-bas fascin-1 ated generations . of readers ever since. Thc tale of Jekyll an Hyde did not surprise th medical world. lt know many cases of split person niily-Schizophrenia is th medical term. However, doctors in Geor gia, U.S.A., recently founi something new to then which has greatly excitei them-a case where om woman behaved as thougl she was, and in fact at diff erent times thought she was three different women. The doctors are satisfied that the woman is not sham- ming; that she cannot help herself. Often, she cannot remember what she has done. Invariably, she thinks of her other personalities, not as herself, but as other women. The woman is marri...

ANGLE OH THE LAW Rules of Evidence [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

ANGLE OH THE LAW Rules of Evidence TT is felt by the public *? and confirmed by th< law, that a witness wht gives evidence for thc pro secution in a criminal tria should do so in the siglii and hearing of thc Judge and jury. Thus Judge and jury are able to form a fair judg- ment of the truthfulness and reliability of the witness through direct observation of his manner of speech, his general demeanour and his reaction to cross-examina- tion. There is a rule of law which makes "hearsay" evi- dence inadmissible in a court; that is to say, as it has been put, a witness who has received from someone else a narrative of fact is not allowed to give this nar- rative in evidence. Of course, an absent wit- ness's evidence can be pre- sented only by some other person. The basis of the inadmis- sibility of hearsay evidence is its untrustworthiness, since it is derived from an absent witness who was not on oath and not available for cross examination.

DISQUALIFICATION AGAIN IN HALF-MILE G.P.S. Athletes Cut Seven Records In Spite Of Wind [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

. DISQUALIFICATION AGAIN IN HALF-MILE G.P.S. Athletes Cut Seven Records In Spite Of Wind By FRANK TIERNEY Seven records were broken yesterday at the Great Public Schools' track and field championships at the Sydney Cricket Ground, but a disqualification marred the carnival for the second year in succession. Grammar runner R. Diamond was involved for the second time, but this year he won the event; last year he was disqualified, although he did not win. Scots College retained the open senior schools' cham- pionship, and Grammar look the junior title. The attendance was the best for some years. The records made were the result of courageous running. A strong south-west wind prevailed throughout the afternoon, and 100 yards competitors were the most seriously affected. Those who broke records were: . P. Ashton (Scots), 220 yards under 15, 23.9s-pre- vious record, P. Britton (New.), G. McGregor (New.), 24s. . A. Anderson (Gram- mar), 90 yards under 16 hurdles, 12.1s-previous re- cord, A...

FINANCIAL REVIEW The Case Against Equal Pay By The Financial Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

I FINANCIAL REVIEW 7] The Case Against Equal Pay By The Financial Editor Tlie human male is being too complacent if he thinks that the campaign in favour of equal pay for women can be brushed aside as wearisome comedy. THERE are indeed som practical answers ti the equal-pay advocate who, though few in num ber and not strongl; organised, have renewet their campaign recentl} with a touch of suffragette vehemence. But the answers are no watertight or of eterna validity. In the light of his tory, after all, the cause ol the British suffragettes, a< distinct from their tactics, can be seen as absolutely logical and just. We find il hard to understand now why I women were ever denied ¡voting rights. Will history pass a simi- lar verdict against our system of wage discrimina- tion? In Australia, there has been one strong justification for the differential wage rates. Our male basic wage was constructed from the start as the amount of money required to meet the needs of a worker ...

CENTURY AFTER NIGHT'S TRAVELLING Martin's Brilliant 114 For Petersham [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

. CENTURY AFTER NIGHT'S TRAVELLING Martin's Brilliant 114 Former Taree batsman John Martin yesterday scored a cen- tury in his third first-grade match in Sydney after travelling all night in a railway carriage from Taree. With State player Bobby Simpson, whose 157 was the highest score in yesterday's play, Martin added 185 in 114 minutes for Petersham-Marrick ville. Martin's score of 104 included two sixes and IS fours and was made in 114 minutes. A left-hander, Martin had a prolific season last year with Taree and scored more than 1,300 runs, at an aver- age of 93. Martin, with 17-year-old State player, Bobby Simp- son, added 185 in a second wicket tsand in 114 min- utes. Simpson also gave a de- lightful batting display in scoring 157 not out, 15 fours in 225 minutes. It was Simpson's first century of a bright and promising career and he must be an automatic selection in the State side to visit Queensland. President of the N.S.W. Cricket Association, Mr. Syd Smith, who saw the matc...

A Share To Be Noticed [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

A Share To Be Noticed INVESTORS who are more concerned with the the prospects of a share than the immediate income return will find much to interest them in Wormald Brothers Industries. The company has been on thc Stock Exchange only since 1949. Its fourth balance-sheet, presented last week, reveals a consolidated profit of £150,432, after provisions for taxation at pre-Budget rates. Adjusted for the Budget concessions, the net profit would probably be about £170,000, after deducting outside interests in the pro- fits of subsidiaries. That profit is four times as great as the requirements to pay the current dividend rate of 8 per cent, (tax-free) on the present ordinary capi- tal. Wormald Brothers is a holding company with 13 subsidiaries. Eight of these are engaged in the manufac- ture and installation of fire protection systems, including Grinnell and other well known brands. Other subsidiaries hold franchises for Steeibilt shelv- ing and Kirsch metal doors and blinds. A similar h...

I The WaMabies had too I much speed and combined too well for the scratch N.S.W. team, and piled on 11 tries to two. The tourists' goal-kicking was weak, only three tries I being converted, but a strong and unpleasant .wini' made conditions difficult. Running against the wind in the first half, the Wallabies lead, 14^6, at, the interval. After the change, the Wal. labies ran riot and piled or points at one-in-minute iinti hey tired in the closing ¡ages. '.. . Many times the N.S.W. defence, was hopelessly de sated by the swift hand ng and running of the Vallabies.

Aces Up Perry's Sleeve Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Aces Up Perry's Sleeve Staß Correspondent NEW YORK, Saturday. -Australian tennis fans can expect some surprises when 20-year-old Bob Perry, of the American Davis Cup team, arrives in Australia next month. Perry, for all his youth, has caused some exciting upsets during his brief career in the American tournament circuit. It is hardly likely that Perry, on his first trip to Australia, will be chosen to play in the Challenge round. In fact most experts think that he was lucky to make the team as he has never yet won a major open tourna- ment in the United States. Under the experienced guidance of captain-coach Billy Talbert it is reasonable to expect that he will give Australian players some tough matches. Perry's showing in the Nassau Bowl tournament just before last month's Nationals was perhaps the high point of his career, and certainly his wins over Gardnar Mulloy and Ham Richardson gladdened the hearts of the Davis Cup selectors. The decision to include him in the Davis Cup squa...

McGREGOR NOT HAPPY WITH TIMES [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

MCGREGOR NOT HAPPY WITH TIMES Champion runner Graham McGregor trained for months and covered more than 300 miles in préparation for the G.P.C. champion- ships yesterday. McGregor retained the 220-yards arie 440-yards titles, but was disappointed with his times. McGregor was after G.P.S. records in his last year at Newington College. For this purpose he practised starts every day during the' week under the tuition of David Johnson, runner-up in the Empire Games 220yds achampionship in 11950. I But the long-limbed McGregor could . not generate sufficient speed to create i records. ! He is now convinced that his career in athletics is wrapped around 440-yards runnings. Angus Munro, the 18-year-old Grammar sprinter, won the 100 yards for the second year in succession. He had hoped to beat the record of bis father, who had won the G.P.S. 100 yards and shot put, a feat performed by Angus Munro last year, but he lost the shot put on Wednesday.
