WEST'S NOTE TO REDS FOR REVISION Snag In New Talks Plan [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953

WEST'S NOTE TO REDS FOR REVISION Snag In New Talks Plan LONDON, Saturday (A.A.P.).-German objections have thrown seriously out of gear the Big" Three Foreign Ministers' plans to invite the Russians to talks in Lugano next month. The Foreign Ministers-repre- senting Britain, France and the United States-met initially yesterday for a week-end conference at which it is hoped to design strategy for a new ap- proach to Moscow. The German Premier, Dr. Konrad Adenauer, has asked the Ministers to delete from their invita- tion to the, Russians any suggestion that Russia and the West might exchange anti-aggression pledges. His plea involved hurried revision of a Note-already in -the hands of the three nations' Embassies in Moscow ready to be handed to the Kremlin. 2nd Objection Another German objection is to the Note's implication that, the '.Vest is now pre- pared to discuss the whole German problem at the pro- posed Lugano meeting dropping their earlier insist- ence on all-German elections...

Silver Phantom Lets Punters Down Badly [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953

Silver Phantom Lets Punters Down Badly MELBOURNE, Saturday.-Bookmakers were relieved of doubles commitments worth £1 million when Silver Phantom failed in the Caulfield Cup to-day. A crowd of 67,000 saw the New Zealand horse My Hero (10-1) win by a neck from Wodalla (14-1) with Most Regal (25-1) a length away, third. Silver Phantom started a firm favourite. He weakened after leading early and finished well behind the placegetters. I It is estimated that My Hero was backed straight out for the j Caulfield Cup for about £50,000. He came into the market after his recent win at Caulfield i and has been linked with many Melbourne Cup candidates. ¡ Many people have taken the two cups double about My Hero. Silver Phantom was heavily backed yesterday, and last night his quote was as low as 2-1. Howc er, on the course to-day he opened at 3-1. He tightened to 2-1 and then eased a shade to start at 9-4. Leading doubles operator Dick Davis said: "1 would reckon the Silver Phantom - Carioca doub...

They have two married daughters. Foy got in touch with William Zeckendorf, 48, sole stockholder in the top real estate company, Webb and Knapp. Nightclub deal Having found Mrs. Foy her apartment, Zcckendorf said to Foy: "Now I have done something for your wife, what about selling me the Chrysler buildings?"

"Dior has done something for the short woman," said Mr. Sekers. "Thc breath- taking line of his frocks cut in one piece and practi- cally devoid of trimming is superb."

"Rich fabrics lead the fashion field," he said. "They are essential for the simple lines of new fashion."

Dr. Tully has been study- ing adult education in con- nection with both agricul- ture and home economics. She said that adult exten- sion teaching in America was particularly designed for rural communities, but that women in the cities were now demanding a simi- lar service. "In Australia we have .'a long way to go," she said. "The country women are having a struggle to get such a service expanded to help them. They have already made representations to the Commonwealth Mini- sters to have some of the funds which the Govern- ment gives to the Stales for home economics to bc spent on extension scheriies."

fe F E ATURES * ll Mis STEPMOTHER iii T" This is the first of a series of iii iii |i articles on an issue which has iij Ü i divided Belgium and brought a iii ¡i jj royal family into the conflict. By A Special Correspondent ON A SPRING MORNING in 1938, while the nations of the world were gather- 4 ing strength for the greatest test of arms in history, an eight-year-old boy frolicked on the beach of a Belgian seaport with a young woman in tennis clothes. Then he | led her to his father, and said politely: "Papa, this is my friend Liliane." This was the quiet beginning of one of the strangest dramas in modern Europe, which has driven a King from his throne and left a people divided and unhappy. T^HE boy was Bau f dollin, now King of the Belgians. The father was Leopold III; then King-he re- nounced the Throne nfler thc" war in favour of his son. The woman was Maria Liliane Bads, daughter of a Belgian official. She is now thc Princess de Rethy, Leo- pold's second wife and King Baudouin'...

An Overhaul of Question Time [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953

An Overhaul Question Ti sue Federal Parliament was far from its best iu Thursday's argument over questions. THE Speaker, Mr. Cam- eron, ruled nine succes- sive questions out of order before Mr. Menzies brought question time to an end. One Liberal member said afterwards: "The boss just saved Archie's bacon. The boys were getting really mad." The argument started be- cause the Minister for Lab- our, Mr. Holt, was answer- ing a "Dorothy Dix"-poli- ticians' term for a question inspired and arranged be- forehand by a Minister to give him an opportunity to read a prepared statement in reply. As questions must be without notice, "Dorothy Dixers" are not allowed by standing orders, but Minis- ters often get away with them. Some members are equally at fault by their tedious repetition of ques (ions, often questions that have been answered before. Mr. Cameron himself, in the view of most people, also overstepped the mark in ruling out, among the nine, what would probably have been a couple of...

Clothes That Make A Sydney Man? By a Staff Correspondent LOTS OF SYDNEY men about town look as i£ they have just been aroused from a deep sleep-in their clothes. This is the opinion of a group of male and female leaders. HHHEY gave it last week *? when commenting on a plea for better dress for Sydney men, in a letter to "The Sydney Morning Herald" by a recently returned overseas traveller. Four of the pictures on this page were taken at ran- dom in Sydney streets by a "Sun-Herald" photographer. They show a fair cross-sec- tion of male attire. We asked two Sydney tailors, a women's dress de- signer, and a businessman to comment on thc pictures and on male attire in general. Herc is what they said: . Mr. Henry Chorley, of W. Chorley and Co., men's tailors: "Some men seem to select coats designed to fit them where they touch, with sleeves that hang as if the) were temporarily tacked in. "Others have trousers thai appear likely to fall off them at any moment. "The main trouble seems tha...

Mushrooms Like A Mamirial Compost GARDEN SECTION [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953

Mushrooms Like A Manurial Compost By "WARATAH" MUSHROOM growing is now a much more simplified process luau it was years ago. Then straw and manure for compost were turned again and again in an elaborate system of com- post-making. From that compost the mushroom beds were laid. DARK sheds, cellars and tunnels were considered the only suit- able locations for the beds. Nowadays they are made in any location noi exposed to sunlight, but which is also under cover from rain. Fruit cases or larger con- tainers made of boards or cement are suitable. Thc main thing is to ensure that the manure is damp but never wet. Any fresh animal man- ure is a suitable medium. Stable or horse manure is perhaps the easiest to use. It can be mixed with fresh weeds or grass cuttings. Poultry or sheep manure needs to be leavened with straw or leaf-mould in a ratio of 1 to 6. Heat Essential I The manure heap is pack- ed in a covered heap where i it heats during fermentation. I This heat is essential to kill i...
