GOLF LESSONS BY FAMOUS EXPERT No. XXVL. (and last) The Left-Foot-Forward Stance WHY IT SUITS MIDDLE-AGED PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
GOLF LESSONS BY FAMOUS EXTRACT No. XXVI. (and last) The Left-Foot- Forward Stance WHY IT SUITS MIDDLE-AGED PLAYERS By ARCHIE COMPSTON When Mr. Bobby Jones went round St. Andrews Old Course in 68 in an open championship, the critics called him a golfing machine. If he had lived a couple of centuries ago the caddies and the crowd would have set down his success to a knowledge of the Black Art. At least, that is what they said of William St. Ciair, of Roslin, who won the silver club of the Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers in 1761, and whose portrait hangs in the clubhouse at Muirfield, where the open championship was held this year. What interested me most in the por- trait was the way in which this old golfer was standing for the drive, with his ball nearly opposite the left foot and his right foot drawn very far back. I have seen one or two other reproduc- tions of portraits of the players of our grandfathers' days, and you get the same thing in the lot. In every one of them wh...

EXPERT BILLIARDS Cushion-First Cannon [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
EXPERT BILLIARDS Cushion-First Cannon By RISO LEVI Many ordinary players are under the impression that in order for a cannon to be possible by a stroke which causes the cue ball to pass between the first object ball and the cushion, the space between this ball and the cushion must be at least equal to the diameter of a ball. A cushion-first cannon is, however, &nbsp; frequently on when the first object ball's distance from the cushion is con- siderably less than the width of a ball. The diagram below illustrates a posi- tion which may occur in relation to any cushion, but which is more likely to occur near the top cushion than &nbsp; some other cushion. Here, the red is only an inch and a half from the cushion, and but three-eighths of an inch from the second object ball, which is touching the cushion. If you are just an ordinary player set up the position and see what it looks like. You may think that you can get the cannon, but quite likely you would not be too sur...

But that did not deter Mr. Lang. He has been giving the sausage '''^inf a whirl that has made the heads of sober members of Parliament' dizzy.

Expanding, Canned Fruit Export Trade Canberra, October 2. exports of canned fruit during the 1931 season, though they win not reach the 1930 level, are considered highly satisfactory by the Canned Fruit Con- trol Board in its annual report, which was tabled in the House of Represen tatives by the Minister for Markets today.

The board estimates that the total exports far the 1931 season win ap proximate 750,000 cases. If this total is reached and the obsorptive capacity of the domestic market remains steady, canners should enter the 1932 process ing season with a mtnftrniTn of carry over stocks.

To enable the various members of this family to be distinguished from one another. It is necessary to take the features which show the greatest divergences and re cord them hi a table.

WHY GNADHI WEARS HUMBLE GARB Symbol of Political Campaign ONCE DRESSED SMARTLY [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
WHY GNADHI WEARS HUMBLE GARB Symbol of Political Campaign ONCE DRESSED SMARTLY THE garb Gandhi has insisted on wearing during his visit to London is one of the main rea- sons why he failed to impress political circles, the cables tell us. Sole repressntative of India at the second round table conference on In dian afiairs, Gandhi has appeared in self-made shawl, sandals, and loin cloth. And diplomatic Knginnn1 has received a shock at such unusual dress for diplomatic occasions. Gandhi has worn this simple garb— the costume which has distinguished the Hindu pariah—for nearly 20 years. TTig clothes are to a large extent a symbol of his campaign to establish home spinning and weaving as an In dian industry, and of his boycott of foreign cloth. . . To Aid Native Product He hopes some day to make home spinning" an industry which will occupy Indian farmers for the period of nearly six months each year when most of them are forced to re main idle. He advocates DDycotting foreign cloth so a...

It might be looked at as an attempt to add another dank to their platform of peculiar modesty if they did. for it is hardly commonplace to become, every Sunday, a willing target for gibes and badinage, and the central figure of an oral wrestling bout. They do it. though—and seem to like it.. Cer tainly they are not ansceptible to that sensitiveness which places many of us in obscurity. What clo they care if their remarks are described as balder dash, their threats treated with ironic indifference, and their schemes leered at? Fun for the Crowd Every week the crowd tries hard, but it has not succeeded m discouraging them; it would be disappointing if it did. for what then would the hun dreds who visit the ...
