Leon Gellert Dreams About... HIS CASTLE IN THE AIR FEATURES [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Leon Geliert Dreams About . . . HIS CASTLE IN THE AIR J AM not particularly attracted to children outside the walls of their nursery, and I am afraid that I am not an exem- plary parent, but I have for many years regretted that we have never been blessed with a rollicking batch of sextuplets. [ MENTIONED this to 1 A Certain Party the other evening as I was reading the paper at the dinner table. For some reason she took it as a per- sonal affront and it would be improper to repeat her remarks here. "I am not chiding any- one," I retorted. "I am merely unbosoming a rea- sonable disappointment-un- covering an aching void which,, in these days, must gnaw at thc heart of every father worth his salt. Just imagine the joy of watching six happy urchins, all bf the same.,age, romping round our knees!" "Triât comes well from you," she said bitterly. "For my own part, 1 can think of nothing worse. But why sex tupiéis?" "Because this is the age of competition, my pct,"'! ex- plained. "Records a...

THE CHALLEN[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT ON AUSTRALIA'S doorstep, and un- der her flag, is one of the wildest countries in the world-New Guinea, the "Little Africa." This article describes some of the enormous problems we must solve in taming war-like peoples, some of whom cat each other. Some New Guinea tribes use the long bow-once the Brit- on's favourite weapon. THE New Guinea patrol officer was buying sweet potatoes. One native, elbowed aside, whipped out a stone club from under his bark cape and stove in anoth- er's skull. The man fell dead on the spot but the murderer barely gave him a glance-he just' pointed to his own sweet potatoes and went on hagg- ling. That's the Kukukuku (pro- nounced Cooka Cooka), the most primitive, blood-thirsty native in New Guinea. For 50 years patrol officers have tried to pacify them but even now areas are still unsafe for unarmed travel. One of the clearest pic- tures available of a huge and still-untamed area is given by an Australian author, Colin Simpson, in...

They still like Ike Fact's New York News Bureau. [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

They still like Ike Fact's New York Nevus Bureau. "TJOWN each side of fair ^ ways of Burning" Tree golf course walk two men in sportshirts carrying bags of golf clubs they do not use. Among" the clubs in one bag is a walkie-talkie set and the other man has a gun. The men's eyes never leave a balding golfer of 5ft 1 Oin and 12-£ stone, playing between them. The non-golfing golf- ers are Secret Service men guarding ex- General Dwight David Eisenhower, who will turn 63 next Wed- nesday in his 10th month as President of the United States. A third member of the presidential bodyguard goes around the course ahead of Eisenhower and his fellow players. The man with the walkie talkie can talk to a fourth Secret Service man in a radio-car hack at the clubhouse. These men always accompany Eisenhower to Burning Tree Club, a 25-minute drive from the White House, Washington. Ike lunches and plays there almost every Wednesday and Saturday, usually scores in the low eighties. Secret Service man che...

Life on a big rock FACT correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Life on à big rock FACT correspondent P o 1 i s h - American Vladimir Plesz bought a block of ground in the belief that a projected parkway would cross it. He intended to hold it, then sell it to New York City at a handsome profit. That was 27 years ago. He was wrong. The super- highway went past his pro- perty-a jutting rock 78ft wide, 119ft deep, 55ft high. Nothing can be built until the rock is reduced to street level. Engineers estimated machinery could do it for £22,000. His wife helps So Plesz, now 64, began to hack the rock away himself with hammer, hatchet and chisel. He works weekdays and Sundays. Sometimes his wife helps, driving a small truck taking broken rock away. His two sons help him when they can. Plesz says he would make more progress but for inter- ruptions by curious passers- by and if he had not slipped last month . and broken his right arm. Â right-hander, he has to swing hammer ' and hatchet left-handed. In 14 months he has cut! away a shelf 20ft deep and 5ff ...

Temora Beats Young 11-7 To WinMaherCup TEMORA, Saturday. In an exciting match- to- day Temora beat Young 11-7 to retain the Maher Cup. Young, premiers of Group 9 and winners of the Clay- ton Shield for mid-country teams of N.S.W., were ex- pected to win. Young led 5-2 at half- time. Henman kicked an easy penalty goal for Temora, and then Brogan (Young) crossed under the posts and converted his own try. Temora equalised immedi- ately after the resumption. Full-back Johnston ran to half-way, passed to Henry, on to Gelfius, for Broad to score in the corner. Henman missed the goal. ' Temora's next try resulted from Young's error. Scott threw a bad pass and Temora captain Trudgett kicked the ball through. When centre Fairall bustled the full-back, Hen- man picked up the ball and scored, in the corner. He missed the kick. Brogan brought Young one point behind Temora with a fine penalty kick. Temora went! further ahead when Trudgett picked up a loose ball and threw a pass to Fairall who ra...

Grand Finals Set Problems [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Grand Finals Set Problems . LISMORE, Satur- day. - Queries have arisen in two grand finals in Lismore sport -Rugby League and höckey. In the hockey case, Old Students drew with minor premier Glee in the women's A grade grand final after extra time had been played. The captains agreed to re- play the match and Old Students won the major title. In the Richmond Rugby League grand final, North Lismore and South Lismore were level at full-time and South won in the extra 10 minutes each way.' The contention of Old Students and North Lismore officials is that they have to be beaten in the regular time to lose the major title. They claim it is the task of the minor premier to beat i them and a draw means they retain the title. 1

Warships help to sack a fiery strawberry blonde FACT'S New York and London News Bureau. [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Warships help to sack a fiery strawberry blonde FACT'S New York and London News Bureau. In Georgetown, ramshackle capital of British Guiana, "Red'Janet" Jagan, a handsome, 33-year-old strawberry blonde, looked through her decorated hornrim spectacles with prim disdain. The disdain was for Brit- ish warships, laden with troops, which reached the colony's capital on Wednes- day. American-born Red Janet was the power behind British Guiana's Left-wing Govern- ment which Governor Sir Alfred Savage sacked after the warships arrived. Her party demanded im- mediate withdrawal of all troops and appealed to world opinion "in defence of our democratic rights." In dismissing the Govern- ment, Savage said he wanted to prevent the British colony being turned into "a totali- tarian State subordinate to Moscow." He amended the Constitu- tion of the 83,000-square mile colony ^population 437,000) on the north-east shoulder of South America, between Venezuela and Dutch Guiana. Pull the strings Titular...

SPORT NOTEBOOK Alan Hulls says [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

SPORT NOTEBOOK ¿wm M 4oaâ Not all the spar- ring of the week was done in gym- nasiums. For instance Stadiums Ltd.'s Sydney manager Harry Miller led with a firm left. Harry is an extremely amiable fellow but getting him to make a statement for publication about any fistic matter is an extremely difficult job. His usual cautious reply to any question is to suggest the matter will have to be considered by "my direc- tors." But Harry was positive- ly voluble on returning from a trip to Brisbane this week. Said he, "I am surprised at the way Javier Gutierro is being side-stepped as a possible contender in a world bantamweight title bout against Carruthers." After praising the record of Gutierrez, Mr. Miller added, "Stadiums Ltd. would be only too. happy to release Gutierrez after he has fought Elley Bennett OD Monday." Sly Pleasure Mr. Miller's lapse into comparative verbosity of course enabled him to get a plug for his Monday night's fight-it promises to be a good fight, too. But one ca...

SHIP HITS OPEN BRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

SHIP HITS OPEN BRIDGE Traffic over the Gladesville Bridge was held up for nearly three hours late yesterday when the stern of the freighter Hex- ham Bank hit the bridge. Passengers on Ryde buses had to walk across the bridge and take buses from the other side. The bridge was opened about 5.15 p.m. to let the collier pass to the Mortlake gasworks.   A strong wind swung the stern of the ship into the bridge, damaging a steel stanchion. The bridge operator, Mr. H. Culver, of The Strand, Croydon, could not close it completely and had to send for equipment to cut through the stanchion. The bridge was opened to traffic at 8 p.m. The collier was damaged but was able to proceed to its dock.

Hint On Troops For Woomera From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Hint On Troops For Woomera From Our Staff Correspondent LONDON, Saturday.-The Chief of the   Imperial General Staff, Field-Marshal Sir John Harding, yesterday hinted at the possibility that troops will be used tactically in conjunction with atomic explosions at Australia's Woomera range. Sir John left London Air- port for Australia in a special Royal Air Force Hastings at midnight. Asked if British or Australian Armies were likely to follow America's lead in exercising troops at atomic explosions, Sir John said: "If you have a costly bang like that going off you take the fullest possible advantage of it." Sir John, who is due to reach Australia on October 15, does not think he will be in time to see the latest explosion at Woomera, but hopes he might make it. He plans to spend a day at the rocket range inspecting the progress of guided missiles. Sir John's visit is primarily concerned with Britain's desire for a closely integrated defence alliance in the South-Western P...

Local Bay Makes Glamour Gowns [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Locai Bay FORMER paratrooper Bill Lullon, of Sydney, made the most-talked-about frock at the Black and White ball last week. BILL LUTTON fitting a. -pink satin short evening dress, tohile his sister, MARY LUTTON, acts as a model. IN 1949, Bill Luff on, a young ex-paratrooper, sat glued to the same seat through four consecutive parades of clothes in Sydney by leading Paris designer, Pierre Balmain. This caught the eye of M. Balmain, who said: "At least 1 have one good customer." Later, when the two men were introduced, Balmain complimented Mr. Lutton on hts fashion drawings and predicted that he would go far in the world of fashion. Mr. Lutton, then a student of dress design at the East Sydney Technical College, is now the proud owner of a small dressmaking salon in Sydney, and has made one of the most talked about dresses of the Black and White Ball-the huge-skirted striking black and white in- tricately ? tucked organza dress worn by Mrs. Hector Livingston. Modest and shy, with his...

Man In the Public Eye Guardian Of The Public Purse- Strings [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Man in the Public Eye Guardian Of The Public Purse - Strings FEW MEN end the journey of one career only to take the spotlight of a new and public one. Professor F. Armand Bland, Liberal M.P. for Warringah since 1951, is one of those few. THE first professor to a Chair of Public Admin- istration in Australia (and probably the first in the South-   ern Hemisphere), he retired at the appointed time and enter ed the Federal Parliament. He is now 71. Having talked, lectured, and   written about Governments for 30-odd years, he took his fare- well of the lectern and hied him   to the green chamber of the House of Representatives. Once an observer of politics, he became a participant. A bat- tler for an educationally improv-   ed and more responsible and   efficient Public Service, he had cried out, often vainly, "Hear ye,   hear ye" as he preached his doc- trine of Parliamentary control of public expenditure.

Off To "Forbidden Land" In Himalayas [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953

Off To "Forbidden Land" In Himalayas A FRAIL-LOOKING white-haired woman left Sydney by cargo boat yesterday to begin   a journey which will take her many thousands of miles across India, up into the Himalayas and on into Pakistan—alone. Sydney solicitor, Miss Marie Byles, is in the true tradition of the great women travellers of the world, although she would be the first person to dis- claim it. Like the 19th century women explorers who mapped uncharted Africa dressed in black serge and carrying nothing more lethal than an umbrella, her main equipment is a detached and observant mind. Little Preparation She travels, wherever pos- sible, over untouched country, without any special preparations, equipment or fust, identifying herself with the life of the people she visits, always unruffled, always interested, always re- ceptive. Her own way of putting it-in a gentle, friendly voice-is: "1 always try to travel in an accepting frame of mind. "If a Buddhist priest shows me t...
