DULL SOCCER. HILTON SHIELD GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
DULL SOCCER. HILTON SHIELD GAMES. Big scores were the order of the day in the third round of the Hilton Shield competition on Saturday. Y.M.C.A. had an easy win over Pineapple Rovers with four out of the five goals scored. Toombul suffered an overwhelming defeat at the hands of Latrobes, who scored seven goals and won by that amount, while Toowong had no difficulty in disposing of Wynnum to the tune of 8-1. As is usual when the season is draw- ing to a close players as well as spec- tators lose some of their keenness, con- sequently the games are not so satis- fying. The game at Wembley was of a very scrappy nature, with Y.M.C.A.'s sel- dom in difficulties, although not at any time did they display their wonted form. That may have been due to the fact that they were never very seriously ex- tended. There will be three more Satur- days of play before the season ends. TOOWONG'S HARVEST OF GOALS. Although Toowong defeated Wynnum on Saturday, at Toowong, by 8-1, this score by no means r...
IN HEAT WAVE. ENGLISH FIXTURES OPEN. LONDON, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
IN HEAT WAVE. ENGLISH FIXTURES OPEN. LONDON, August 28. The football season opened in the summer's seventh heat wave. About 700,- 000 spectators, mostly in their shirt- sleeves, and thousands of women in summer frocks, generally enjoyed the temperature of 81deg. in the shade, de- spite the fact that many fainted, and there was one death. The teams suffered from the baked pitches, and eight well- known players were badly injured, the casualties including Alex, James and Hulme, of the Arsenal team. The first goal scored on the London ground was in the Arsenal-Birmingham match by the Birmingham centre for- ward. This match attracted 40,000 spec- tators, while Fulham played before 30,- 000 spectators, and a similar number saw the Stoke-Chelsea encounter The fixtures resulted:— ENGLISH LEAGUE. FIRST DIVISION. Arsenal v. Birmingham, 1-1. Aston Villa v. Leicester, 2-3. Blackburn v. Leeds, 4-2. Everton v. West Bromwich Albion, 1-0. Huddersfield v. Sunderland, 2-1, Manchester City v. Sheffie...
BEAT THEMSELVES. VALLEY OUT OF LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
BEAT THEMSELVES. VALLEY OUT OF LUCK. By L. H. KEARNEY. It is no uncommon experience for Val- ley in Rugby League premiership matches to be beaten by Western Suburbs, and after Saturday's defeat by 13 points to five in the penultimate round of the cham- pionship they will probably think that it is destined to be so. Two tries were missed by feet, the major share of the ball was against their opponents, and they had the territorial advantage without gaining results in the second half. It was one of the unluckiest games in the experience of the Val- ley Club, but there was merit in the vic- tory of Western Suburbs. A masterly de- fence kept the blues out over the final stages. I cannot recall a beaten side having as much of the ball as Valley received from Whyte, the hooker. If ever defence won a game it certainly did in this match. Western Suburbs' outstanding trait was ability to play upon the weakness of their rivals, and make points from mistakes. In the average game against any ot...
SYDNEY SEMI-FINAL. SYDNEY, August 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
SYDNEY SEMI-FINAL. SYDNEY, August 27. In one of the hardest and most thrill- ing matches seen for a long time Newtown on Saturday qualified for the final of the Rugby League premiership competition, de- feating South Sydney in the semi-final at the Sydney Sports Ground by 17 points to 12. Newtown in the final will meet the winner of next Saturday's match be- tween Eastern Suburbs and St. George, and having won the minor premiership &nbsp; will have the right to play in a grand final if beaten in the final.
TRIBUTES TO HARRIS. HUDDERSFIELD, August 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
TRIBUTES TO HARRIS. HUDDERSFIELD, August 25. The newspapers here enthusiastically give space to the news of the decision of Eric Harris, the Queensland Rugby League player, to return to Leeds. The Yorkshire "Post" Says:—"What Leed's style of play will be when Harris returns can be safely left to the future. The main thing is that we shall again see his beautifully-balanced run, his curiously flickering side-step, his devastating spurt and pace changes. We shall hear again the crowd roaring for him as it roars for quite no other player as he flashes down the Headingly touchline." Harris left a reputation as great as Harden possessed here.
NEW MILE RECORD HAD STOOD SINCE 1905. HOBART, August 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
NEW MILE RECORD HAD STOOD SINCE 1905. HOBART, August 27. E. W. Barwick, running in the Tasman- ian Amateur Athletic Association's four miles handicap yesterday, started from scratch, and established a Tasmanian and Australian record of 19min. 41 1-5sec.

Tinning, at Hobart, in 1913. There were 15 starters, and Barwick won by more than 30 yards.
NATIONAL CODE. WIN FOR TARINGA. SOUTH'S FINAL RALLY. Taringa had sufficient in reserve to withstand a strong challenge by South Brisbane in the final quarter of the Australian Rules semi-final on Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
NATIONAL CODE. WIN FOR TARINGA. SOUTH'S FINAL RALLY. Taringa had sufficient in reserve to withstand a strong challenge by South Brisbane in the final quarter of the Australian Rules semi-final on Satur- day. The match did not produce high-class football, and if it had not been for South Brisbane's final rally there would have been very little of interest to spectators. For the first three-quarters Taringa were definitely superior. South Brisbane drew up to their opponents in the second term, but faded away, and were too far in arrears to have any chance of success. In Dopson they had the best man on the ground. Others to do well were Hopkin- son, Crammond, Reid, O'Callaghan, and Carsley. Taringa's best playor was Nunn, the tall follower, who was outstanding in the air. Scores: Goals. Behinds. Points TARINGA .. .. .. 11 12 78 SOUTH BRISBANE 9 6 60 The goal-kickers were:—Taringa: P.

CYCLING CLUB RACING RESUMED. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
CYCLING CLUB RACING RESUMED. After a spell of several weeks, during which "open" cycling events were con- tested, club racing was again resumed on Saturday afternoon, when most of the clubs conducted events over a distance corresponding with the teams premier- ship events to be held next month. One of the best performances of the day was that of A. Drake, who recorded the smart time of 51min. 58sec. for 20 miles in the West Brisbane Club's event. H. Orford, the junior rider, was also responsible for a good effort when he recorded better time than the senior riders in the City Wheelers' 7-mile event.

BOHEMIA WRESTLING. "MARVEL" UNMASKED. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
BOHEMIA WRESTLING. 'MARVEL" UNMASKED. At the Bohemia Stadium on Saturday night Billy Meeske (13.1) and "The Mask- ed Marvel" (14.0) provided a spectacular &nbsp; contest. Meeske made many attempts to unmask the mystery wrestler in the early rounds, but the black head-piece was worn until the end of the fifth session, when "The Masked Marvel" was identi- &nbsp; &nbsp; fied as Terry Morrison, of Scotland. After repeatedly sending Meeske to the mat with the "rabbit-killer" in the sec- ond round, the hooded man scored the first fall with a body press. Meeske gained the equalising fall in the fifth round with an octopus hold, and gained the win- ning fall in the final round with a re- verse headlock and body press. "Strangler" Ristis, who will wrestle George Tiki next Saturday night, was introduced. A contest between the wrestling referee, Billy Munden (10.1), and "Tiger" Ken- nedy, (10.2) ended suddenly in the first round. Kennedy sustained a gash above the left ...

I'm sure without looking —this is White Horse A blindfold test may be a matter for experts, but there are so many qualities that make White Horse the preferred Whisky that its devotees cannot fail to recognise it. Connoisseurs pronounce it the equal of a fine liqueur. Its aroma of peat and heather, as well as the circular seal, "Product of Scotland," affixed on the neck of every bottle, by authority of H.M. Customs, tell you it's real old Scotch. WHITE &nbsp; HORSE SCOTCH WHISKY DALGETY & CO., LTD.—Agents for Southern Queensland.
LURICH DISQUALIFIED. SYDNEY, August 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
LURICH DISQUALIFIED. SYDNEY, August 27. Tom Lurich incurred disqualification in the fifth round of a scheduled six-round bout against the American, King Elliott, at the Leichhardt Stadium on Saturday night. At the conclusion of the fourth round each had obtained a fall. At the commencement of the fifth period, Lurich, secured a headlock, and after lifting a knee into Elliott's stomach, used a heavy rabbit punch. The referee (Mr. McMas- ters) cautioned the Russian, but the latter ignored the warning and attempted to lift his rival over the ropes. McMasters again warned Lurich, and endeavoured to pull him away from Elliott. Lurich rained blows on the official, who promptly dis- qualified him, and signified Elliott as the winner.

KEEN DOUBLES. U.S.A. Championship QUIST—TURNBULL WIN. Though Crawford-M'Grath (Aus- tralia) were defeated in the quarter- finals of the National Doubles Cham- pionship at Brookline (Massachusetts), Quist—Turnbull (Australia) brilliantly defeated Allison—Van Ryn.

CANELESS SCHOOL. NEW TEACHING METHODS. SUCCESS AT WILSTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
CANELESS SCHOOL. NEW TEACHING METHODS. SUCCESS AT WILSTON. There has been no cane in the Wil- ston State School for six or eight years, the head master (Mr. W. Col- lings) states. The school, which had more than 700 children, was run en- tirely without corporal punishment. Those of the present scholarship class who had been right through the school &nbsp; from the kindergarten classes had &nbsp; never beep caned, and only rarely had any of them been kept in after school hours for punishment. The result of this system was that it would be im- possible to find better behaviour in any school in Queensland. &nbsp; There was no such thing as a naughty child, and no such thing as a lazy child, Mr. Collings said. Under- standing of children did away with all need for harsh discipline and pro- duced splendid results. To succeed in this method teachers had to "come down off their perches a little." They had to be more human, had to have a keen sense of humour, and had...
