SPORTSMEN KEPT INACTIVE Serious Dearth Of Playing Areas [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

SPORTSMEN KEPT INACTIVE - Serious Dearth Of * Playing Areas Many thousands of Sydney people are debarred from playing in organ- ised week-end spoijt because of a serious shortage of playing areas. ALTHOUGH nearly 50 new grounds are in use this summer, only 25,000 of the 30,000 to 40,000 cricketers can play at the week-end. Every available tennis court in the metropolitan area has long been tied up by permanent book- ings. Only by playing before break- fast, or in the evening period be- tween the end of afternoon com- petition matches at 5 p.m. and the start of night games, at 7.30 p.m., can the casual tennis player get a court during the week-end. Experts believe that 1,000 more courts would scarcely make adequate provision for players wishing to take part in regular Saturday and Sunday competi- tions. Long waiting lists for member- ship of Sydney's 30 golf courses betoken the lag in this sport. With little hope of land being made available in the metropoli- tan area, golfers now lo...

Drawing As Much As £25,000 a Day In One of -"'" ? '" the. Most Sensational Frauds of Modern Times f^\ i££%y FOUR MEN FOOLED ^"* The BANK of ENGLAND By JAMESTAYLOR IT was an ominous hour for, " the Bank of England when George and Austin ' Bidwell, George Macdonald and Edwin Noyes-all Americans of good education and agreeable manners-met in London on Christmas Day, 1872, to complete their plans for one of the most sensational frauds of modern times. With ample funds, the fruit of successful coups on the Continent, the gang occupied a suite at a fashionable hotel. Here they lived in luxury until the opportunity came trr strike at the richest bank in the world. George Bidwell, a man of impressive presence and finan- cial acumen (who claimed to know more about banking than the bankers), was the leader and organiser. His younger brother, Aus- tin, handsome and charming, was the "personality boy." Macdonald, â forger of con- summate skill, regarded him- self as the "artist" of the group, a...

CITY ARGUES ABOUT 300 NUDES [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Oslo has a group of sta- tues which cost £1,000,000 - and after fifty years discussion citizens still don't know whether or not ?they like them. By PETER NEY, IN OSLO CITY ARGUES ABOUT 300 NUDES F Oslo's Frogner Park stand, sit, wrestle, em- brace, writhe, grouyjs num-' bering well over 300 nude bronze and stone figures, the work of sculptor Gustav Vigeland, who died in 1943. In Oslo, everybody argues about Gustav Vigeland. In Oslo, you can't help it be- cause his work is to be found everywhere. The people who do the argu- ing can be divided into two categories, those who think that Vigeland, who died dur- ing the German occupation, was the world's greatest sculp- tor, and those who think that the Municipality of Oslo, which financed his grandiose project, threw down the drain the £1,000,000 spent on the nudes. The controversy started in 1899 when young Vigeland of- fered the Oslo Council a plan for a fountain. He had con- ceived it in terms of six giants supporting a huge bowl. The...

GWEN MEREDITH "Lawsons" Author Never Listens To Serials Miss Gwen Meredith, one of Australia's most successful writers of radio serials, rarely listens to the radio. "I especially avoid listening to serials," she said one day last week, during a brief visit to Sydney from her country home near Moss Vale. Miss Meredith (Mrs Ains- worth Harrison) is the author of the A.B.C. radio serial, "The Lawsons," which will end on Feb- ruary 25, and of its successor, "Blue Hills," due to be .begin on February 28. She visited Sydney to watch the cast of "Blue Hills" record the first five episodes' of the new serial. Miss Meredith estimates that she earned between £.7,000 and £8,000 from "The Lawsons," in its five-year career, during which it became the only serial in the world to be" broadcast twice a day. The story, which was launched originally by the A.B.C. as a form of propaganda for improving agricultural methods in the country, has been published in book form, and used as the basis of a car...

Boyhood Hobby Now Aids Public Health [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Boyhood Hobby Now Aids Public Health Mr. Bern Shelton's boyhood hobby was breed- ing fish. It has now become a valuable asset to the health of the community. He breeds fish to kill mosquitoes. He keeps more than 50,000 Gambnsia Affinis, a variety of minnow, in an iron tank at the City Council's cleansing .depot at Newtown, where he is foreman. MR. BERN SHELTON "I've sent my fish to all parts of the country, to New Zealand and the tropics," he said. "Anyone can come in here and get a jar full for nothing. "Where small boys are con- cerned, though, I insist they bring a note. Otherwise, we'd have the' gutters full of fish. "The trouble is, not too many people know about my fish. They don't realise how simple it is to slip a few of the fish into a dam or a lake or a waterhole. Instead, they do it the expensive way, with oil and D.D.T." Mr. Shelton explained that Gambusia Affinis thrive on mos- quito larvae. Because they are so small (up to two inches in length) they can swim into the s...

THREAT OVER 'PHONE "Money Or Life" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

THREAT OVER 'PHONE "Money Or Life" An unknown man 'phoned Lady Hordern on Friday night and- said she would die if she failed to leave money for him in the letter box at her home that night. Police think he was either a lunatic or a practical joker. He has not yet been traced. Lady Hordern, wife of Sir Samuel Hordern, who is in ill health, lives at Babsworth House, Mount Adelaide Street, Darling Point. When she answered the 'phone shortly after 10 p.m., a man said: "Is that Lady Hordern speaking?" Lady Hordern said "Yes." The man said: "If there is not money put in the letter-box for me before a quarter to 12 to-night you will be dead." He hung up before Lady Hordern could question him. She did not take the threat seriously, but informed the police. Wireless cars were rushed to her home, which stands in large grounds. Police kept a watch on the home all night. They are now trying to trace the call which they think may have been made from a public booth.
