DECISIVE WIN CHATHAM'S RECORD WARWICK STAKES. (From Our Special Representative.) SYDNEY, August 27. Chatham tied up a high-class field in the Warwick Stakes, at Warwick Farm yesterday, when he won by five lengths in 1.37½, time that bettered by half a second the previous best standing to the credit of such gallopers as Windbag, Amounis, Limerick, and Johnnie Jason.

DECISIVE WIN CHATHAM'S RECORD WARWICK STAKES. (From Our Special Representative.) SYDNEY, August 27. Chatham tied up .a high-class field in the Warwick Stakes, at Warwick Farm yesterday, when he won by five lengths in 1.37½, time that bettered by half a second the previous best standing to the credit of such gal- lopers as Windbag, Amounis, Lime- rick, and Johnnie Jason. Chatham is the Windbag horse from whom a large quantity of blood was re- moved some months ago. The efficacy of the operation was proved when Chatham, at his first outing after his operation, scored so decisively. In the previous race, the Hobartville Stakes, J. E. Pike was thrown from his mount, Shakuni, and he was precluded from accepting what subsequently proved an easy winning mount on Chatham. The downfall of the 5 to 4 favourite, Silver Scorn, was the chief element in the disaster for backers. In a field of nine, Silver Scorn beat two horses home. Rogilla, who was firmly entrenched in public esteem as second fa...

WON UNDERWOOD Hall Mark Game. BEAT WALTZING LILY. (From Our Special Representative.) MELBOURNE, August 27. Hall Mark exhibited remarkable gameness and determination to win   the A.J.C. Sires' Produce Stakes and Champagne Stakes. He has not lost any of this characteristic, as was proved when he won the Underwood Stakes at Williamstown yesterday. He came with a strong run when Waltz- ing Lily appeared to have the race in safe keeping, 50 yards from the winning post. Ogwell, who had won at his four previ- ous starts, was the only runner backed against Waltzing Lily and Hall Mark. He was responsible for the pacemaking yes- terday, but he could not hold off his two more popular rivals over the last 100 yards. Waltzing Lily appeared to be caught in the strands of the barrier when it rose. Ogwell was soon showing the way to Lelite, Parkwood, and Hall Mark. Waltz- ing Lily was up with Hall Mark at the three furlongs, and was just behind Og- well turning for home. When the mare ...

The son Is develop*. t lng real class, and. Judging by his re- cent successes, one may yet see him mak- ing a bold challenge for national welter- weight honours. He did not lose a round to Roderick, and took the fight to his man from the first gong. Pluto showed .much groater Initiative than in his previous victories over Fitzgerald. O'Brien, and Seres. At times he revelled in toe-to-toe exchanges, beating his llval to the punch, The most captivating phase of his boxing against the Englishman was the steady barrage of his left hand. Tho English- man never had a chance, but he was game, and took severe punishment. The weights were: Pluto 10.334. Roderick 10.4}!...

Sporting Intelligence. Turf Topics. By "THE HARVESTER." [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

Sporting Intelligence. Turf Topics. By "THE HARVESTER." Owners and trainers are reminded that the nominations for the meeting to be held at Albion Park on Saturday next become due not later than 4 o'clock to-day. Attention is drawn to the fact that this week's programme will consist of a five division handicap and Plate and Purse. Town Topic's Win. Apparently the backing of Town Topic on the course gave rise to many heartburnings among those who had made arrangements to support the horse at starting price. At one stage 10 to 1 was freely offered about the son of Rossendale, and it was not until very late that a move was made to support him. The moment the book- makers discovered that there was sup- port for the chestnut they shortened his price and for a time he remained on the 7 to 1 mark. A well-known backer quickly settled that quote, how- ever, by accepting £100 to £14, and the move was followed by others. Prior to the rise of the barrier a well-known bookmaker called 8 to 1. A ...

HEAVY COMMISSION Town Topic Lands "Coup" INCREASED PATRONAGE By "THE HARVESTER." Outstanding features were as sociated with the racing at Albion Park on Saturday. From the club's point of view the most important was the very noticeable increase in the attendance. The backing of Town Topic in the Plate was sensational, by reason of the fact that the money carne very late, and did not appear to be in the interests of the connections of the horse. It transpired that the money came from starting price agents away from the course. Yoburn's performance in the Third Division Handicap was a great surprise to many after his failure on Wednesday, but the race was run to suit the horse, which is in splendid condition.

ST. JAMES THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

ST. JAMES THEATRE. An uproariously funny satire upon the flamboyant methods of the Ameri- can publicity profession, "Hard to Handle," the major attraction on the programme which commenced at the St. James Theatre on Saturday, stars James Cagney, one of the most popu- lar of the younger lights of the talk- ing screen. Cagney, in this film, has another of his "hard-boiled" roles, but despite his superb self-confidence, brilliant command of sales talk, and ability to take care of himself in a rough-and-tumble, things do not al- ways go the way the publicity expert he represents intend them to. He has many worries, but chief among them are his fiancee, with whom he is con- tinually in and out of favour, and her mother, who shows her appreciation of his ability by throwing him out of the house. The young man's quar- rels with his future mother-in-law form some of the most amusing epi- sodes in a clever, fast-moving story. But this is not all he has to facs; as a publicity promoter he arr...

HAPPY FINALE. VISITOR'S AS HOSTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

HAPPY FINALE. VISITORS AS HOSTS. A happy finale to an extremely enter- taining week was staged on Saturday evening, when a complimentary dinner was tendered to the executive of the Queensland Bowling Association, the presidents of the entertaining clubs, and their ladies. The hosts were the New South Wales and Victorian inter-State bowling teams, and the rendezvous was Rowe's banquet hall. Genial good-fellow- ship brightened the proceedings. A feature of the speeches was the emphasis placed on the fact that the game of bowls did something more than create competition —it served to strengthen long and pleas- ing Inter-State friendships. At the instigation of the chairman (Mr. H. H. Olney, M.L.C., vice-president, Vic- torian Bowling Association) several im- promptu toasts were drunk in honour of the bowlers of the three States. "Only a few years ago we came to Queensland as the teachers. But, as in many other spheres, the pupils have de- veloped into the masters," declared Mr. T. W. H...

VITAL TEST TO SOUTH AFRICA. 11-nil Victory. AUSTRALIANS WELL BEATEN. South Africa won the fourth Test match—and with it the rubber—at Port Elizabeth on Saturday, de- feating the Australian Rugby Union team by 11 points to nil. At half-time South Africa led by 5 points to nil. PORT ELIZABETH, August 26. The Springboks won the rubber in the matches against the Australian Rugby union team by means of a clear-cut victory to-day, the Aus- tralians being beaten in all depart- ments of the game. For the most part tile South Africans' game was the brightest of the series, with the for- wards dominant, opening up and handling freely. In the closing stages, however, Osler, with a sound lead, closed the game. The Australians then were in little shape to take command, and as a result the play became drab and desultory, and ended on an un- interesting note. Although the forwards were domin- ant throughout the game it was in- finitely more exhilarating than the third Test. The kicking into touch ...
