BABY CINEMA STAR IN OVER 100 FILMS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 8 January 1929
BABY CINEMA STAR IX OVER 100 FILMS Little Miss Pearl Hay holds some thing of a record in the film industry. Although, -she has only just celebrated her sixth birthday, she has played in over a hundred British films. She started her career at tfec ago of two, when she won a beauty competition onen to all the children of Great Bri tain. A film producer saw her photo graph, and \^rotc to her mother, ask ing if she would allow her to appear in a film. Now Pearl is playing the part of a child 'ghost' in 'The Flying Squad,' the screen version of Edgar Wallace's play. When .Mr. Arthur Maude, the dir ector of tlie film, asked Pearl if she was- going to be a film star when she grew up, she showed no - superopti mism. Presumably, at the age of six she kuoxrs the pitfalls of the business even for those in it, for she answered with grave caution, 'I hope so!'
SALVATION ARMY THE LEADERSHIP PROBLEM London, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 8 January 1929
SALVATION ARMY ^ ' THE LEADERSHIP PROBLEM London, January 7. Mystery continues to surround the whereabouts of General Brantwell Booth although it appears that he has left his home at South Wold. At the headauarters of the Salvation Army it is officially announced that there is no likelihood of his resigning the leadership before the meeting of the High Council as he docs not admit the charge that he is unfit to carry on the duties of the head of the Army. j It is not probable that he will attend j the Council meeting, but ho is a man of iron and it is just possible that he ?will make an effort to do so. i Women in England' spend £12,000, 000 yearly on silk or artificial silk stockings. Whilst England has 8,000 hosiery workers unemployed, she buys £4,000,000 wtorth of hosiery from i abroad. .v
THE FUNERAL New York, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 8 January 1929
THE FUNERAL New York* January 7. ' To-day Jack Dempscy helped to lay the late Tex Biekard in a solid bronze casket costing £3,000. It weighed 2,200 lbs (alnipst a. tan), and was so hcaw that ten policemen and eight firemen were required to carry it xrom deceas ed 's home to |fhe hearse. ' ? Dempscy 's comment was that-' liick anl's end wa^ strangely unromantic for a man' who had dominated' turbulent Alaska in the wildest Jvlondyke days. Jack said that Kickard staked the first claim at Bonanzo -Creek with his Indian partner, Skcpkuin Jim. He first star* led' the sporting; world by piling 30,000 u,ollars . (£0,000) in gold pieces in a Js'c - vada store window for a prize fight. Only twice in his career did. he make guesses notably wrongs — he lost £20,000 iast summer in niatching Jinimy McLar nin and Sam Mandeli, and he dropi-ed £60,000 in the Tunney-Heeney battle. =

THE POLICEMAN'S LANTERN ELECTRICITY DISPLACES OIL [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 8 January 1929
THE POLICEMAN'S LAN TERN ELECTRICITY DISPLACES OIL The policeman's 'bull's-eye' lan tern is a thing of the past in London. It was an oily, smelly contraption at the ?jcst, and the heat is generated was a source of discomfort to the con stable, who had to wear it at his belt for eight hours. It has been superseded by an electric lamp of greater illuminating power. A light, non-spillablc accumulator is used. Apparatus for recharging has been invented by a Scotland Yard en. gineer. There arc now about S/HH- 'of these lamps in use. A special cliargiug sta tion at Scotland Yard deals with the 16.000 accumulators. They are dis tributed daily by motor-vans. An ac cumulator is good for eight hours' continuous light. By twisting a dial the constable can have the light in a long beam or in diffusion. ' Every lantern in- the force is re plenished twice a week.

DEATH OF TEX RICKARD ? -- ? . ? BIG BOXING PROMOTER TWO UNSUCCESSFUL OPERATIONS New York, January 7. Tex Biekard, the famous promoter of big boxing matches, died here yesterday, morning, after having undergone two operations for appendicitis. During the last ten years he tad sta-j; ed matches which attracted crowds from all oVer the wori/, his most successful venture being the second match between Jack Dempscy and Gene Tunney for the championship of the world at Soldiers' Field, Chicago, two years ago. To toe that match, 150,000 people paid £5(fy, 000. It was is 1906 that Biekard burst into the limelight, not applauded as a sensation, bnt ridiculed as a fool. i:c scorned his critics, however, and trium phed in his initial venture. The world was awaiting a niateh be tween Battling Nelson, leading cbaileu gcr ,and Joo Gans, negro - lightwcigut champion of the world.

AGONISING ORDEAL RETURNED SOLDIER'S FORTITUDE. Melbourne, January 5. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 8 January 1929
AGONISING ORDEAL BETTJBNED SOLDIER'S FORTI TUDE. Melbourne, January 5. With his right leg badly fractured and crushed, John Milburn, a returned soldier, crawled for half a mile through thick scrub to his mixed farm at Nan garra, near Belgrave. The astonishing crawl took two hours, but Milburn struggled on with amazing ..fortitude. He had been riding half a mile from Nangarra when his horse stumbled and rolled on his right leg. Dragging himself into the Louse where he lives alone, Milburn man aged to get his gun and box of cart ridges and painfully collected chaff bags to make a bed. Lying on the bags he fired shot after shot in the hope of attracting attention. Tho nearest dwelling is half a mile away. The shots were heard by Mr. J. A. Chrichton, who investigated. After hav ing done all he could to relieve Mil burn, Mr. Chrichton telephoned to Bel grave, and a doctor covered the lfi miles of tortuous roads in 39 minutes. The doctor found that Milburn, un daunted by his suffering, ha...
LAWYER AND LAUGHTER FAMOUS INCIDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 8 January 1929
LAWYER AND LAUGHTER I'AMOuS INCED-iINTS A I'rench provcrjj has it that 'law- yers' houses are built of fools' heads.' Almost every country has two cherish ed and deathless possessions — a gibe at the mother-in-law and a growl at the lawyer. Jock the butcher, one or Jack Cade's henchmen, proposed: — 'The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.' Jack indicated that this piece of diversion was in his pro gramme, because he once set his seal to a document, and was never his own man since. Over against the supposed unpopu larity of lawyers must be set the re deeming virtue that many of them possess a fine sense of humour, and have brightened existence for their clients by placing on record many capital stones of judges. The latest contributor to this oranch of litera ture is no less than Lord Shaw of Dunferniliue, a. lord of appeal and lord advocate for Scotland. His book is not exclusively concerned with law, tor it is in some sort a kind of auto biography, and includes excursion...

The Geraldton Guardian & Express TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1929. ITALY AND AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 8 January 1929
TUESDAY, JANUARY' 8, 1929. ITALY AND AUSTRALIA Certain recent incidents in 'Australia have had the effect unhappily enough^ of directing the atention of the^talian Fascist press upon this country,. and of inflaming Italian public opinion against Australia. The incidents in themselves have been of a relatively trivial nature, and at any other time, and in any other circumstances ^would have been accepted overseas for. *vhat they were — domestic incidents of very little con cern. It happens, however, that Aus tralia has recently been obliged to limit' the number of Southern European im migrants accepted in each year, and further that Italy is, at the moment in a bellicose and somewiat brittle mood. The conscqaenccs of these purely . do mestic happenings may therefore con-, ccivably be more serious than their face value would appear to justify. The incidents to whfch strong and bitter exception has been taken by the Fascist Press arc sufficiently trivial to provoke a smile over so much...
