TRAINING WORKING AT RANDWICK AND VICTORIA PARK RANDWICK. Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
TRAINING WORKING AT RANDWICK AND VICTORIA PARK By The Arrow Srjeclals. JtADUWltK. Thursday. Heavy rain accompanied by hailstones was re sponsible for the grass tracks being closed this morning. The cinder and tan tracks were in use. Very few horses were extended. Lady Minnie ran a useful mile on the cinders, where Ulva's Isle and Kandos put in steady work. A strong round was run by Polycrates and Flightincss. Two Blues, Mcrimce, Tony and Ready Aye Ready all worked usefully. Wolaroi 2nd Hjiistcourt were not out of a stronc canter Cetigne went at half-pace, and Silent Way ran a steady mile. Bee and Spangle went steadily over six furlongs. Nice striding work was put in by Rushford, Gai, Ukuwela, Narivo. Three Star, King Mos tyn, Secret Code, Reval, Kilboy, Gadabout, Long Reef, Agathon.

THE TWO-MILE TROT THIS AFTERNOON [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
THE TWO-MILE TROT THIS AFTERNOON The two-mile trot this afternoon at Victoria Park is looked forward to with interest by patrons of that sport, and a good contest is likely to result, as it is rumored that several have been kept specially in reserve for this race. Mountain King, who is 35yds behind, recently won at Menanele Park over a mile and a half from 50yds behind in 3.40, which is not a very fast step, but it must be remembered that it was done on grass, which is several seconds slower than cinders. Homcleigb Dick is one of the uuhoppled division in this race, and is likely to be hard to beat, as he stays well, and at the last Londonderry meeting won the Richmond Hundred in 3.36, starting from 2sec behind. Brooklyn, who is not engaged this afternoon, was second; but Golden Robin, who was 9sec behind, was a very moderate third. However. I expect the chestnut to do better to-day, and he may be equal to turning the tables on the free-legged horse. Brown Boy has done nothing of no...

CRICKET Sy NOT OUT. Mr. George Botirne presided at the annual meeting of the Western Suburbs Cricket As sociation, which went oif very well,. consider- ing the inroads made on the players by the way in which they have enlisted. The report presented by Mr. W. H. Potter was very satisfactory. It showed a credit balance of £5 odd. The president presented the medals to last season's winning teams, the first grade going to Camperuown and the the second grade to Hurlstone Park Kiora. The report states that there are now only 16 clubs with 284 members. Over 100 mem bers have enlisted, these including a goodly proportion of leading players, which proves that playing the game as usual is no detri ment to recruiting. Among the best known players who are in khaki are E. Thompson, Norman Jeffrey, \V. Home, T. Keir, and V. . Stockman. I The office-bearers for this seajon are: P.nt- ; ron, J. F.

ROWING [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
ROWING By ARGUS. - Although there is some slight activity in the other States, nothing is doing in amateur elub life in Sydney, except amongst the lady rowers. At the last meeting ol the Victorian Rowing Association, an amendment was made to the racing lams — the one arTected is No. 6 of the Victorian code. Under the old rule it was nece--5ary for a foul to occur before a crew could be disqualified, but the new rule vests the umpire with power to disqualify any crew which, in his opinion, by leaving its true course. irnDcdes bv its wash, or otherwise, thr progress of any other competing boat. The special clause in the old rule which governed all races on the Upper Varra course, and which was the cause of much dissatisfaction in the past, has been cancelled, so that the one rule will now apply to all races rowed on any course throughout Victoria. Rules 8 and 9 have also been amended to apply to any breach of the laws of boat racing. The Richmond R.C. (Vic.) proposes to hold challenge...

ATHLETICS MELBOURNE'S PROCEDURE, THE SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIPS By ARGUG. It will be remembered that an v.'.'.empt was maae to follow the Victorian procedure in con nection with thr. running of our All Schools' championships. b:it I hear the proposal has been rejected.

MELBOURNE MOVIES [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
MELBOURNE MOVIES There was not a vacant seat at Hoyt's Theatre de Luxe on Saturday night, when a new programme was presented. The .two-star films shown were received with much enthu siasm. Her Hidden Past, a Fox picturisation of the famous French novel. De Rameau, by Georges Ohnet, is a most interesting production, which contains a strong lesson against atheism. In it arc featured Dorothy Bernard, Stuart Holmes and Jean Sothern. Another good drama, Love's Crucible, gav* the audience a glimpse into the 'artistic' life of young people with time and money to burn in New York. Laura Hope Crews in the Lasky feztnTe, Blackbirds, is the principal attraction at' the Paramount. It is a tale of adventure, with the scene shifting from the Orient to New York. and from high society to the underworld. The plot is well developed, and works up to a strong climax, ending in a manner highly satis factory to the audience. Thomas Meigban, who appears in support of Miss Crews, gives. a convincing impers...

THE CYCLIST AMATEUR CYCLISTS TO BUILD SOLDIERS' HOMES [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
THE CYCLIST AMATEUR CYCLISTS TO BUILD SOLDIERS' HOMES By BEDE CARROLL, The Central Cumberland and Ashfield League Clubs are to combine again this after noon, and hold a 10 miles' road race, on the Parramatta course. With 44 riders handi capped, a good field is practically certain. Charlie Fittler is alone on the mark of honor, with T. Wilson (lmin), next. The latter has only to pick up lOsecs on F. Kennedy (1.10), with J. N. Doody (1.25). another 15secs away. This trio should, by working well together, go very close to getting the fastest time for one of their number. The scratch man. all on his own, looks to have a hard task ahead of him to save one of the three from depriving him of the prize. T. Wikon did the trick last Satur day. The limit, Bmin 20secs, is very liberal for a 10 miles, but R. McKinley and C. Chris tian' are only youths. The Enfield-Burwood club is to patronise its local course, for a Members' Handicap. At the time of writing none of the other clubs has announced ...

CYCLISTS FOR FRENCH'S FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
CYCLISTS FOR FRENCH'S FOREST. Mr. Theo. O'Halloran, the hon. secretary of the N.S.W. Cyclists Union, has written to Mr. Fitzpatrick, who is controlling the working bees which go to French's Forest each week end, to assist in the building of soldiers homes offering to organise a number of 'working Sundays' for amateur cyclists. As soon as a reply is received, the union will lose no time in getting to work. Anything the amateur governing body does it can be depended upon to do thoroughly and Mr. O'Halloran already predicts a big muster of wheelman to do their bit for the returned heroes who are settling at French's Forest. In addition to the object being such a laudable one, it is a fine cycle ride over good roads, and through nice scenery. For those who do not intend to ride, motor lorries will be provided.

RACING FOR JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
RACING FOR JUNIORS. Chatting a few days ago, Mr. Theo O'Hal loran, the secretary of the Union, expressed the hope that the amateur clubs would each form a junior section. If they do so, the go verning body will affiliate them at reduced fees, and, if the 'junior' section gains any strength, «he Union will obtain special open track races for the youths at such big fixtures as the Eight-Hours and Druids Carnival, etc. Writing of juniors, reminds one that Gerald Halpin, one of the finest amateur sprin ters Australia has produced in recent years, won his first race at the early age of 14, at the Eight-Hours Carnival. It was a race for boys, and the brilliant Halpin won with ease. Since .then, he has won many big events, including championships.

AN AUSTRALIAN PRODUCER. The first four-reel picture ever produced was taken in Australia over eight years ago »y John F Gavin, and the film was Thunderbolt, in which Mr. Gavin played .the title role in addition to producing the picture. The aver age length of a dramatic film at that time was from 800 to 900 ftrt, whilst a comedy was con sidered of unusual size if the end was not reached in 200 feet. Every one informed him *hat his venture was doomed to iailure. but Mr. Gavin pereisteu that long features were what the people wanted, and the result of his persistence was Thunderbolt. This film was a success from the moment it was screened, and, seeing that feature film3 were destined to be the great draw card3 at picture thcatr«, and encouraged by his initial success.
