Close Finishes Likely At Dapto Dogs Tonight [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 6 July 1950
Close Finishes Likely At [?] Tonight's races at Dapto should provide spec tators with close and exciting greyhound racing from the first event. The most open race is the last, the President's Stake, in which any one of six dogs could win without surprising. The President's Stake has at tracted a field of high-class dis tance performers. It includes Bright Ripplo, Rose Beauty, Moon Fox and Foundation. To a lesser decree Ron Curran a.nd Another Min must also be considered. Now that Bright Ripple is back in top form she will take a lot of beating. This bitch has run ' some excellent distance races in the past and it would not surprise to see her fight it out with Rose Beauty. The youngster of the field, Foundation Boy, has a finishing run that could. easily allow him to pass the other two runners. Last week at Dapto he lost a close decision to Tahmoor Chief. A little more luck in the running of the race tonight would turn the tables. Moon Fox simply won as she liked at Wollongong on Mo...
Comic Strip Material [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 6 July 1950
Comic Strip Material SIR. — In view of the difficulty you are having in maintaining a regular supply of comic strips for your esteemed paper I am tempted to suggest, after read ing Tuesday's issue, that ycu in vite ' Mr. M. Fackender, secre tary of the Illawarra Peace Council, to make a daily contri bution on the same lines as nts statement on the Korean situa tion. For a complete somersault on 'peace' his statement is a masterpiece. For a gem of a dis tortion on the history of Korea it is unsurpassed. I was sorry that one more 'de- mand' was not included. I sug gest that it should be: 'That we demand that the Communist forces immediately halt their armed intervention in the area south of the 38th parallel and that Soviet Russia refrain from such intervention also.' However, I suppose Mr. Fack ender's statements are harmless so long as people read them for amusement. If, on the other hand he intends us to take him seriously, I suggest that he veri fies his facts before accepting the...

Intervention In Korea [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 6 July 1950
Intervention In Korea SIR. — Your columnist stated on Tuesday that he 'can't follow' the Peace Council's con demnination of U.S. intervention in Korea. May I, as briefly as possible, record some facts which may help him to under stand? 1. The so-called Government of South Korea was first elected on May 10, 1948, by less than 30 per cent, of those entitled to vote. The elections were boy cotted by a large number of Korean organisations. Early last month new elections were held, and despite the fact that most opposition parties were, banned, Syngham Rhee's ' Korean Nationalist Party ob tained only 22 out of 209 seats. Again less than 30 per cent, of! the people voted. 2. The Supreme People's As sembly of Korea (i.e. the North Korean Government) was elected in August, 1948. Ninety nine per cent, of the people of North Korea and 77 per cent, of the people of South Korea voted, despite the most rigorous ef forts on the part of the South ern police to prevent participa tion. The North Kor...

Five-eighth Dickie Williams will be unable to play, for about five days as a result of a pulled ligament received in the match yesterday.

Big -Opportunities For Bsisetellers At Petersham Ok Sunday (By 'Observer') On Sunday at Petersham baseball player Sam Pianegonda will make his official debut before the State selectors. Should he produce the fofm he has shown during the past few months in 'district' games against some of the strongest teams in Sydney; also in the Coufitrij W eek series, it seems almost certain he will be given Ms chance in the State trials. These take place within the month, with the possibility of selection, for the State series, which takes plnce in Sydney in August. This brilliant young player who has learnt the game the hiircV way here in our own dis trict has made a profound im pression, both behind tho mask and with the bat, among all sec tions of tho metropolitan base ball experts.
