The Irrepressible Duchess Georgina, Duchess of Devonshire, was the loast of the underworld in the 18th Century. That fascination has' just upset the plans of a gang of burglars. By PARKINSON WOOD THE irrepressible Duchess, the glamorous beauty who got a thrill out of associating with cut-throats and robbers in the slums of London, is still fascinating the underworld with her beautiful aristocratic fea- tures. A century and a half have passed since her gay laughter was heard in waterfront dives, but only recently proof of hei unique v charm popped up again. Just her picture was enough to upset the plans\of a gang of burglars in England. Georgiana, Duchess ol Devonshire, was the toast of the slums as she electioneered for her favourite politician in London in the 1780s. i She was the toast of society j too, and was painted by the great English artists of her day. Two ? ol those portraits have been stolen, not by professionals-art thieves, but by men with no knowledge of art. nrOWARDS ...
Men Outweighed In U.K. "Faithful Fifth" OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Men Outweighed In U.K. "Faithful Fifth" OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT. LONDON, Jan. 29.-About one-fifth of Britain's population are regular church-goers, accord- ing to the second section of Mass Observation's survey. This survey, just published in "The Nonconformist British Weekly," shows that another two fifths occasionally go to church. Distribution of the "faithful fifth" is even among the various groups of the' community except that the proportion of women to men is slightly higher. The geographical distribution is uneven. A higher percentage of regular church-goers is found in Scotland and Wales than in England, and a higher percentage in the country than in industrial areas.

Crying Won't Bring Back Furs, Says Stat STAFF CORRESPONDENT. NEW YORK, January 29. The skating star, Sonja Henie, does not seem to care much about the theft last night of two of her mink coats, worth £ Al 1,894. "What should I do? Cry? That won't bring them back. I'd really be worried if they'd taken my skates," she said to-day. The coats were stolen from the star's luxurious hotel suite while she was appearing in her ice reyue at Madison Square Garden. . After her return to the hotel, her mother noticed the absence oí the coats and 'phoned the police. But to police requests for an interview, Sonja just said, "I'm too tired. I'll see you later." Detectives waited five hours be- fore they were able to see the room from which the coats were stolen and interview Sonja, who received them''wearing her third mink coat.
Council Of Europe Decision By Ministers STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Council Of Europe Decision By Ministers i -« ' STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. LONDON, January 29.-The Foreign Ministers of the Western Union countries decided in Lon- don yesterday to set up a Council of Europe. The Council will consist of a committee of Ministers meeting privately and a consultative body meeting in public. The Western Union countries -Britain, France, The Nether- lands, Belgium, and Luxemburg -decided to ask other European countries to join the Council. The decision to set up the Council of Europe represents a compromise between British views on the one,hand and those of France and the Benelux countries on the other. PLAN DROPPED France and the Benelux coun- tries had envisaged a Parliament of Europe in which delegates would debate and vote freely on current issues in accordance with their individual sense of the gene- ral interests of Europe. The British Government dropped its proposals made in Paris that the delegates directly nominated by the governments and vot...

MUST WE DIVIDE AND BE CONQUERED? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
MUST WE DIVIDE AND BE CONQUERED? PARTIES at Canberra are .?- lining up for a lively debate on foreign affairs when Parlia- ment meets next week. The Evatt policies will be raked from, the Opposition side, and Ministerial- ists will retaliate in kind. As a Parliamentary spectacle ' it should be worth watching. But many thoughtful Australians must ? be wondering about the price to be paid for deepening political and national disagreement on the nature of our relations with other countries. » It is~ bad enough that the Com- monwealth should be so sharply split on domestic issues as it is to- day. We expend on internal con- tention energies that in some cases could be more profitably applied to the development and strengthening of the country. What may be unavoidable in the national field becomes a hazard- ous luxury in the international sphere. "Foreign policy" has a dull sound. Most Ministers are con- tent to leave its formulation and conduct to Dr. Evatt. Most mem- bers, ignorant of ...

Comeback By Sculler [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Comeback By Sculler Herb Turner, winner of the 1938 Empire Games sculling championship, made a successful comeback in the double-sculls race at the North Shore regatta on the Lane Cove yesterday. Turner, who had not raced since being beaten by Merv Wood in the 1940 N.S.W. cham- pionship sculls combined perfect- ly with G. Clubbe, and won the race by the official margin of 6 lengths. The senior eight-oar race pro- vided an excellent race, Haber- field, University, and Sydney crews racing stroke for stroke over practically the whole of the course. With a 100 yards to go it was anyone's race, and it was only in the last few strokes that Haber- field took the lead' to win by a canvas. The University crew was un- fortunate to lose, however; after the crew had gone about a quar- ter of a mile, the seven man, Pain's, oar came out of the swivel, and considerable ground was lost. A reshuffle of the crew at the last minute did not improve things, usual stroke man Brown being unavailable On ye...

Tricky Day On Range [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Tricky Day On Range A heavy mirage and wind varying from two degrees right to five left, with split second changes, made it hard to score from the 900 yards at Anzac Range yes- terday. J. J. O'Lcary (Mosman) with a match rifle scored a possible 50 on his second round, and to- gether with 47 gave him a 97. Under N.R.A. conditions the best score was by J. Bultitude, of Western Suburbs, who compiled 96. Anything over 90 was con- sidered quite respectable under the conditions. A.G.M.-20 shots F.

Faraway Improving [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
Faraway Improving - > Faraway showed im . provement on his form in ; the Sefton Handicap a forty | night ago in winning" the ' first division of the Pad- dington Handicap at Rand- wick yesterday. Support for him in the ring indicated a belief that he had been sharpened by his earlier run, i which was his first after a spell. His jockey, J. Thompson, had him always well placed, and he was acclaimed a winner before the post was reached. Sunardo, who had been sent to the extreme outside with Exalted, jumped well clear when the bar- rier rose and on settling down was two lengths in front of Mal doru, followed by Sea Serpent and Faraway. At the half-mile Sea Serpent, who had improved his position', was leading from Maldoru fol- lowed by Valiant Crown, Fara- way, Sunardo, Raceme, Fort Step, and Lucky Escape. .Sea Serpent was clearly done with at the turn. Here Maldoru was a length in front 'of him fol- lowed by Exalted, closely pressed by Faraway with Sunardo next. Newborough, who ran ...
JOKE WAS ON LOUIS STAFF CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949
JOKE WAS ON LOUIS STAFF CORRESPONDENT NEW YORK, Jan. 29. -Last week's suggestion that Joe Louis would de- fend his title in Chicago "for the Democratic Party" is regarded as a great joke in headquarters of the Twentieth Century Sporting Club. "A lot of ballyhoo. It's not worth rehashing-you can forget it," said a club spokesman. ? It had been reported that Louis would sign with th,e Democrats' special events promo- tion division. However it was pointed out that the Twentieth Century Sporting Club had Louis under contract until the end of 1950. It is understood the club is confident Louis will call to dis- cuss terms on a lower scale than the 400,000 dollars (£A125,000) plus extras which he recently sought.
