V.A.T.C. STEEPLECHASE TO-DAY SYDNEY REPRESENTATIVE FAVORITE [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
V.A.T.C. STEEPLECHASE TO-DAY SYDNEY REPRESENTATIVE FAVORITE It is rather strange for a Sydney horse to be favorite for any big jumping event down South, but Glcnquinn is in that position for the Aus tralian Steeplechase, and will no doubt hold his place. He has only been over the fences in Victoria once, but acquitted himself really well, and gives promise of being more than useful over the big sticks even if he misses the ! Caulfield race. I have no doubt whatever that j he will get the distance, as he ran three miles rislit out at Randv/ick when he won, and was coing better at the finish than anything in the | r.-.ce. P. Nolan previously won the V.A.T.C. . Steeplechase in 1888, so it will be no new sensa tion for him if Glenquinn gets home. Widdcn ran a good race in the Moondah Steeple .it Caulfield on Saturday, and with 81b off his bid; may have a chance, especially when it is said that his backers on Saturday last were disappointed with the way he was ridden. It is hard to have ...

NEW ZEALANDERS FOR SYDNEY COLONEL SOULT NOT COMING [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
NEW ZEALANDERS FOR SYDNEY COLONEL SOULT NOT COMING Latest ndviccr. from the Dominion state that Colonel Soult will not come to Australia this Spring, as he ha» developed soreness, which ?hough only temporary, is sufficient to put him back in hi.-, preparation. As previously an nounced, T. Quinlivan is to leave for Sydney by an early boat, and will bring seven or eight horses. Nothing is mentioned in New Zealand papers as to whether Marc Antony is to make | the trip or not, but as he is ruling favorite for 1 the New Zealand Cup it docs not seem likely that he will be a competitor at our meetings, though there would be plenty of time for him to return to run in that race. For instance, Elisible, who is to be one of Quinlivan's team fur Sydney :s one of those held in high es ?cem for the New Zealand Cup. Writing of New Zealand horses brings to mind that De'crmination, the half-brother to Imputation, in Frank McGrath's stable, was retired on Tuesday afternoon, when the first forfeits fe...

TWO GOOD SCHOOL GAMES. Two important games will be played in the Great Public Schools' competition. The change From Wednesday fixtures has been made neces sary owing to the mobilisation of the cadets, md consequently the games have all to be Snishinz or abandoned before August 19. The King's School will play St. Ignatius at River iriew, and as the former are unbeaten and the latter have had but one defeat, the struggle ,i_ _..i j K. lr*i**n rind esmCSt. The pnmnfti. tion now rests between these two teams and Grammar School, as only two points cover the three If St. Icnatius College loses it will mean good-bye to all chance of winning. If Kine's lose, they will be one point behind Grammar, and will need to beat that excellent team before they can win. Church of England Grammar School and High School will occupy the North Sydney Oval No. 2, and though the former are expect ed to win. the Sydney High have s.iown suffi ciently 'ood form to make the meeting with any team an attractive ga...

MILITARY GAME AS USUAL. The programme of the dayvis not complete without a military game, and the A.M.C. will face the Army Service Corps at Grammar School Ground. The improved showing of the former side gives prospects of a good, even struggle. ? Newtown-St. George are drawn with a bye. but as Cambridge, owing to The King's School being engaged elsewhere, also had no game, the two. fifteens have arranged to meet at the Grammar School Ground.
TWO-YEAR-OLD TRIALS AT VICTORIA PARK [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
TWO-YEAR-OLD TRIALS AT VICTORIA PARK Trainers are beginning to move their two year-olds along now in anticipation of the rich young races, and at Victoria Park on Thursday the course proper was opened for the use of those who desired to spurt their young sters.

Y.M.'s AND 'VARSITY PROMISE WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
Y.M-'s AND 'VARSITY PROMISE WELL. If the second clashing of the Y.M.CA. and University teams at the Grammar Schoot Ground is as eood as their first meeting, when General Booth's goal-kicking triumphed over the try-eetting efforts of the 'Varsity, specta tors will be well repaid. Tommy Griffen will have charge of the whistle, which augurs well for the pace and spirit of the play. Y.M.'s are just back from a victorious trip to Bathurst, where two good wins were record ed, whereas University have only won one game since their very fine win of the knock out competition on July 1. Thus on recent form it points to the victors of the first meet ing repeating the verdict, though with the Col legians' reserve of strength it is always bard to accurately forecast. Glebc-Balmain will visit Manly, and endeavor to repeat their first comfortable win. How ever, the Villagers have gained some good wins lately, and will face the flying backs with much more confidence than the young team did in the ea...

AMONG THE PROMINENT HORSES FANCIED CANDIDATES [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
AMONG THE PROMINENT HORSES FANCIED CANDIDATES Kandos appears to be fairly right again, for he pulled up sound the other morning alter doing a good long canter. It is to be hoped he goes on all right, as he has developed into a fine horse, and looks the picture of health ; but he will need to be moved along, as the A.J.C. meeting i- gradually drawing near. HU stable-mate. Ulva's Isle, pulled up a little tender in front on Tuesday, but I have noticed him like that before without anything serious re sulting. Carlita is beginning to move alcng. and as she looks well, will, no doubt, be at her best on the opening day of the A.J.C. meeting, Woorak is doing well. No fault can be found with the way he is getting through his preparation, but he still looks rather buuy. Another of Fouhham'3 string in Sydian is look ing well, and I venture to predict he will atone for his past failures in the Spring. He is fairly forward, and will run a fair race the first time he starts. I have not noticed Ci...

THE THINGS THE GIRLS WEAR SATURDAY GIRLS AND THEIR WHEEDLING WAYS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
THE THINGS THE GIRLS WEAR SATURDAY GIRLS AND THEIR WHEEDLING WAYS By THE DOG EXPERT. Mother Nature was the first dressmaker: she cut a figlcaf cunningly for Eve. After the first shock, Adam rather admired the effect as a decoration. He realised' (if Lilith had not already taught him that) that clothes are merely an added allurement to witchery. Sydney doesn't seem to have any specially dressy day. There are the big race-days, of course. In a general sense, Saturday morning is a good time to watch the creatures decked for conquest. Most fashions suit the Sydney girls, and some fashions that would not suit them they have courageously disregarded. But me present tasmon-ot snort scirts, wise ami rational as it is, has brought in one accompani ment that is bound to wreck it in the end. It has brought boots for women. Women should riot wear boots if their size goes much above 2. If you wear a small 3. and can span your ankle without effort, very well. But the girl who wears a big 4 and is...
FISHING NOTES EARLY TREVALLY ON THE MANLY OCEAN SIDE [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
FISHING NOTES EARLY TREVALLY ON THE MANLY OCEAN SIDE By PISCATOR. Higbwatcr at Sydney to-day at 7.20 a.m., and 7.45 pjn. ; to-morrow at 8.10 ajn. and 8.31 p.m. A catch of silver trevally (Caranx georglus) on the ocean side at Manly during the week made line fishermen sit up and take notice. About 40 baskets of the fish were caught, and Manly people had cheap fiih for once in a blue moon. Likely places to catch trevally are at the Green Flats and Old Man's Hat, along Quarantine shore. To-day'a tides are good for early morning and night fishing, but Dreamers may have to do a bit of seeking as black-bream have about concluded their stay in the tidal parts of the rivers, and should be off on one of their pil grimages. Patience and plenty of berley are the two essentials that should accompany the man who uses light lines, gut, bream hooks, and baits of prawn, worm, pippy or cray-fish. Sportsmen will be glad to hear that prawns are getting cheaper, although still scarce. At the Hawkesbury...
PLAY THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
PLAY THE GAME. When first we lined the Barrack Square As 'Marmalades' to do, and dare. The officer who drilled us there Said, 'Play the game.' Towards Holdswortny, through the heat. we u uu^cu wiw! uui, perspiring icet. And all they said to men dead beat. Was 'Play the game.' We soon objected to the stew, The vilest stuff you ever knew, The Major said 'What's wrong with you ? Just play the came.' The dear Lieutenants by the score Would drill us till our bones were sore, And only sometimes pause to roar, 'Come ! Flay the game.' Our Colonel with a whistle shrill Was so annoyed when we missed drill 'I'll fine you all a pound, I will, So play t'ne game.' And so, until ws came away We heard it fifty times a day; The local donkeys all couM bray 'Boys, p'ay tnc Eame.' They say that in the better land. Old Nick, the leader of the band Now says, when lads get out of hand, 'Boyi, play the game.' — S.S. Suevic at Sea.
TOO MUCH PULMAN! [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
TOO MUCH PULMAN ! On his recent tour in the United States Duke Kahanarr.oku was not very successful. Perry McGillivray, to use the American interviewer's expressive phrase, 'nosed him out' in the A.A.U. 100 yards swim, and also in a 220 yards Tacc in Detroit. Then, in the qualifying event of the A.A.U. 220 yards event, he was elimi nated by Vollmar and Wheatley. This had led a large number of swimming devotees to believe that Duke has gone back. Listen to what he has to say concerning the 'I can swim as good to-day as I ever could, and, I hope, batter. I will admit that in the past four years a great improvement has de veloped in American swimming, and that there are a number of clever young swimmers to day. 'However. I attribute my recent defeats to too much Pulman travel and an inability to get sufficient practice. In Honolulu I am always in the water. After leaving the island I went on one stretch of nine days without a work-out. Then, when I did get to a tank, I had to jump righ...
