West Australian interlude in the stormy tragic life of Adam Lindsay Gordon, and here among the tall karri on the Donnelly River is the slab house at 'Glenoran' where the poet was supposed to have lived when he had a cattle run. there. The house, which consists of only two rooms, had a thatched roof, and in one of _ the rooms ? is a log of a tree with .a table ® top nailed to it. One can imagine that Adam Lindsay Gordon may have been happy here for the surroundings are of the loveliest.

Sunday Sport Opposed Council Grants Permission BEACH ATTRACTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

Sunday Sport Opposed Council Grants Permission BEACH ATTRACTIONS An application from the Geraldton Progress and Tourist Association to operate devices for. the entertainment of children on the West-End Beach and at Amusement Park -in Sundays between the hours of 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. engaged the attention of the Geraldton Municipal Council last night. Opposing the application, Cr. T. Askew explained that he had always opposed the conduct of organised sport on Sundays and he said that there were many reasons why the Council should not give consent to this application. During the recent visit to Geraldton of the Commissioner of Police (Mr. J. Doyle) representatives 'cf the Council had complained of the vandalism in the town, and in allowing the conduct of Sunday sport he felt the Council was not standing up to its responsibilities to the young people in the community. The local governing authority should stand solidly behind parents and youth ^organisations who sought to direct the activi...

"Last Shall be First" Country Racing Incident SERIES OF PROTESTS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

"Last Shall be First"     Country Racing Incident SERIES OF PROTESTS An event probably unique in the his- tory of horse racing was recorded at a country meeting at Red Bank (Vic), in 1903. There were only four entrants in a certain race. The first horse to pass the winning post was Kelp. But the owner of Nutfield, the second horse, entered a protest, which was upheld by the judges, on the score of the win- ner having cut inside several posts. Upon Nutfield being declared the win- ner, the owner of Treacle, which was third, lodged a protest on the same grounds. Treacle was then adjudged the winner. The remaining horse, Mulga, finally emerged the judges' decision, when his owner was able to satisfy them that Treacle had competed in an unregister- ed meeting and was therefore ineligible to run. The race was the perfect example of "the last shall be first."

At the tennis club they smashed five racquets, threw twelve dozen balls around the courts and scattered the empty boxes about and they also unrolled a large ball of thick twine and strung it across the net standards.

Air Liner Crashes AMERICAN DISASTER Thirty-Two Persons Killed ENGINE CATCHES FIRE Fresno (California), January 29. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

Air Liner Crashes — ♦ — AMERICAN DISASTER Thirty-Two Persons Killed ENGINE CATCHES FIRE Fresno (California), January 29. Twenty-eight Mexicans on their way to be deported from the United States were killed in a plane crash to-day. Also killed were an Immigration Ser- vice guard and the three members of the aircraft's crew. There were no survivors. The Immigration Service had char- tered the aircraft to take the Mexicans to El Centro Deportation Centre because they had either entered the United States illegally or had stayed beyond the duration of their agricul- tural work contracts. The aircraft, a DC3, was on its way from Oakland Airport. It crashed in flames in western Fresno Country. An eye witness said that the right engine caught fire when the plane was 1,500 feet up. The right wing crumpled almost immediately and dropped off, causing the plane to spin to earth. The petrol tanks exploded just before the plane hit the ground.

Weather Forecasting More British Ships in Action WORK IN THE ATLANTIC [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

Weather Forecasting More British Ships in Action WORK IN THE ATLANTIC The third of Britain's ocean weather ships is now at work in the North Atlantic. Named "Weather Watcher," she is a sister vessel of the other two ships which are already in action as part of an international meteorological fleet. Britain is contributing four of the thirteen ships which constitute this chain of floating weather stations in the North Atlantic, and the fourth is in the final stages of preparation. In addition to these floating   ''weather" stations seven states are providing permanent posts on shore which will form an entirely new inter- national weather forecasting network. The southern half of the North Atlan- tic will be covered from points in the Azores, Portugal and Spain and the middle zones from Eire. Canada, Greenland and Norway will maintain j- stations to watch the northern waters. One of Britain's ships, "Weather Recorder," experienced very rough con- ditions on a recent trip....

Mishap at Sea Fishing Craft Disabled STRUGGLE TO PORT [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

Mishap at Sea Fishing Craft Disabled STRUGGLE TO PORT Bearing the scars of a severe buffet- ing at sea and with a broken rudder- head, the fishing ketch "Era'" limped through the passage into the Geraldton harbor late yesterday afternoon in the tow of the harbor pilot launch, "Charles Crowthor." Stated to be one of the largest craft of its type operated by local fishing interests, the "Era,'"manned by a crew   of four and skippered by Mr. Ben Green, was caught in a sudden squall after leaving Shark Ray on the south bound voyage to Geraldton six days ago. Following the mishap, when the rudder was broken and rendered unworkable, the anchor lost and the skipper struck by a chain which slipped on a windlass and badly jarred his right hand, the crew put up a desper- ate fight against the elements to save the craft from being dashed to pieces on jagged reefs. When the storm abated, the crew worked under difficult conditions to bring the disabled vessel to Geraldton, and, on n...

The Geraldton Guardian THURSDAY, JANUARY 29, 1948 LOCAL WOOL SALES [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

The Geraldton Guardian THURSDAY, JANUARY 29, 1948 LOCAL WOOL SALES Since the fiasco which marked the initial effort to conduct a wool sale in Geraldton, little has been heard of the   prospects of conducting further fixtures of this nature in the town. This is not surprising, however, for there are interests whose ends might best be served if the question were not again raised and the present system of dis- posing of the whole of the 'State's wool clip in the metropolis was allowed to continue. Throughout the period of the war years Geraldton fought, with the unfailing assistance of its member in the Federal Parliament (Hon. H. V. Johnson, M.H.R.) for recognition of the claims of the town as a centre for the appraisement of wool, which was then sold under an agreement entered into by the Commonwealth and Imperial Governments. The last shot of the war had echoed into oblivion before an appraisement was held at the port. Considerable expense was incurred in the renovation...

Amnesty Granted PHILIPPINE INVASION Pardon for Collaborators. PRESIDENT'S POSITION Manila, January 29. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

Amnesty Granted   PHILIPPINE INVASION Pardon for Collaborators PRESIDENT'S POSITION Manila, January 20. President Roxas yesterday signed the proclamation granting an amnesty to about 5,000 Filipinos accused of colla- boration with the Japanese. Congress has yet to approve the proclamation. It dues not include those charged with espionage. Roxas, who was a member of the Council for State uuder the puppet President (Jose Laurel) recalled that he was accused of collaboration during his campaign for presidency. He said : — "To avoid that becoming an issue I stated it was a matter for the courts to decide, but the atmosphere has cleared and people have reached a bet- | ter understanding." Laurel, against whom treason   charges are pending, commented on the action which may free him : — "I am not interested. I do not feel elated: I take things as they come."

Naval Barge Stolen     Abandoned on Beach POLICE SEEK BOYS Sydney. January 29. A 28-feet naval landing barge was stolen from Balmoral yesterday after- noon and was recovered later in a sheltered bay near Coogee. The police are searching for two youths who were seen leaving the barge after they had beached it. The barge, which came from H.M.A.S. Kanimbla, had taken a party of sailors to Balmoral for a cricket match. It was tied up against the Bal- moral wharf. Soon afterwards it was seen sailing towards the Heads.
