Later, Culex II, present holder of the title, had the misfortune to run into a yacht and broke her bumpkin and mast. Desdemona, N.S.W., did not start. Before the start she ran foul of a 16-foot sailing boat and was holed. Jenny Too Unlucky Jenny Too, sailed by Bert Bol- ton, may be considered the "un- lucky boat of the race.

FUN AND GAMES FOR THE JUNIOR MAGICIAN [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
FUN AND GAMES FOR THE JUNIOR MAGICIAN By "MERLIN" SIMPLE conjuring tricks that mystify and entertain your friends are capital fun at a party. In this series of short articles 1 will explain a number of tricks any bov or girl can do. One or two words of advice before we begin on our new career as amateur magicians. Always have your materials for each trick prepared beforehand, and never repeat a trick. Now here is the first, an easy one with cards that is a first-rate opener to your programme of magic. HOW IT LOOKS: Taking up a pack of cards offer them to any member of the audience and say: "Take out any card you wish. Show it to the others, but I will turn my back while you do so." The card is then replaced, and the pack shuffled as often as desired., You then study the cards for a brief moment, murmur a few mystic words about electricity in your system, and fling them on the table, face down. But the card that was selected is magically lying face-up on the pack! THE SECRET: Before ...
WHAT'S IN THEIR NAME? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
WHAT'S IN THEIR NAME? Behind the names'which have been given to bays, points, coves and inlets in our harbour, lie many stories. Some are thrilling, some grim, some funny, and some sad. Here is one about Rushcutters Bay, which many of you must pass each day. FIRST work of Hie marines and convicts who landed with Capt. Arthur Phillip in 1788 was to put up stores and huts. These were built from newly cut, unseasoned timber and roofed with the long grasses and rushes which grew on the low-lying lands near the settle- ment. Parties of men were taken by boat to coves in the har- bour to cut the roofing. Grass Cutting Bay, where an inlet ended in swampy ground, wa' a favourite spot. One day in May, 1788, two convicts were cutting rushes in the swamp when they were set upon by natives. One was speared and the other had his skull beaten in. Phillip himself led a puni- tive expedition in search of the natives, but though he struck across country to Botany Bay did not discover the murderers. ...
THE CIRCUS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
THE CIRCUS / thought I saw some funny things, Last night when tucked in bed: A camel gave a naughty wink And stood upon his head. Along then came an elephant, A-waltzing on his toes. And on-the end of his long trunk A monkey tried to pose. Just then a kangaroo jumped up, A most amazing leap . . . And said, "I'll bounce you out of bed If you don't go to sleep!" GWEN HARROWSMITH

Thomas resigned as Colonial Secretary from the Baldwin Cabinet in 1936 after some budget details had leaked out in advance. Thomas denied that he. had made any disclosures.

Soviet Atom Plant Lies In Central Asia STAFF CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 23 January 1949
Soviet Atom Plant Lies In Central Asia STAFF CORRESPONDENT. WASHINGTON, Jan. 22.-A survey of Russian uranium de- posits, published here to-day, says the centre of Russian atomic re search is probably the Tashkent area, in Central Asia. Dr. B. Shimkin, of the Rus . sian research centre at Harvard University, writing in the maga- zine "Science," says: "The Soviets have discovered enough uranium in the past decade to make it pos- sible to develop atomic power in the future in Central Asia." Not only are the richest Rus- sian deposits of uranium in this area, adds Dr. Shimkin, but all deposits are within 250 miles of important hydro-electric plants fn the Tashkent area. Latest figures show that hydro- electric power produced in this area in 1943 was 882 million kilowatt hours. ?"In addition to its relatively ad- vanced industry, Tashkent has the advantage of being remote from Western countries," says Dr. Shimkin.'
