"NO-MAN'S LAND." [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
"NO-MAN'S LAND." Wiseacres would have us believe that keen rivalry exists between city and country districts in New "ouiii Wales.

Smithfield Honor Roll (To the Editor of "The Biz"). [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
Smithfield Honor Roll (To the Editor of "The Biz"). Sir,-It is pleasing to see that the disgraceful condition of the so-called Roll of Honor in the Smithfield Park has brought forth comment from the Returned Soldiers' Association. Ac cording to a rccent issue of "Biz" the Fairfield Council has had a re port on the matter from its engineer to the effect that re-lettering is re quired. It is high time that a perma nent list of the men who enlisted from this district was installed in the Council Chambers or some other suitable position. Let the readers of "Biz" peruse the following extract from vol. VI of Sir A. Conan Doyle') History of the Great War, and surely nothing: less than marble or bronze will be considered appropri ate. The list, by the way, is in need of revision. It may be desirable to add to it, and certainly several should be omitted. -Yours, ctc. S. H. FULLER. Smithficld, December 24, 1928.

Wetherill Park. NOTES AND DOINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
Wetherill Park. NOTES AND DOINGS. Wetherill Park was crowded out on Saturday night, December 22, the big vent being the children's Xmas tree and party. There were over 150 children and about 200 adults pres ent from a 11 parts of the district. The committee of the local Progress and Citizens' Association held a number of euchre parties during the past few months, and in this way gathered in a large sum of money to finance a Xmas tree. The result was a wonderful success. Every kiddie in the district received some toys. And as for the tea, cakes, scones, lollies, fruit, etc., there was enough for twice the number pres ent. It was a glorious night, and the smiling, happy faces told their own tale. The Xmas tree was a grand sight, and was decorated with bal loons which were afterwards given to the children. At the same time the prizes won at the school were presented by the president, in the unavoidable absence of Mr. Dains, the schoolmaster. To a number of the older children of the dis...
Rechabites. FAIRFIELD TENT NO. 149. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
Rechabites. FAIRFIELD TENT NO. 149. The last meeting in 1928 of Fair field Tent, I.O.R., was held in the Protestant Hall on Tuesday, Dec ember 11, when a wire was received from the District Chief Ruler, Bro G. H. Mayer, who received a warm welcome. The election of officers for the half year resulted as follows: Chief Ruler: Bro. C. R. Harvey. Deputy Ruler: Sister D. McClin tock. Past Chief Ruler: Bro. G. McLin tock. Secretary: Bro. Beck. Treasurer: Bro. Upton. Writing Steward: Bro. R. McLin tock. Money Steward: Sister Le Mas surier. Visiting Steward: Bro. Upton. Lcvite: Bro. J. Weston. Guardian: Bro. T. Proctor. Auditors: Bros. Renny, R. McLin tock and Frost. The experience of the I.O.R. is an exceedingly strong argument in favour of total abstinence from all alcoholic liquors, as the benefits are very much higher than any other society while, the contributions are no higher and in some cases lower than others. This proves beyond any doubt that total abstience does reduce sickness a...

DOUBLE OFFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929

Gimcrack Club Toast. LORD DEWAR AS SPEAKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
i^i. iiijiii" !4 U.U '! _ . . -. *s*.' 'v >'??.,V - ? 'V Gimcrack Club Toast. LORDDEWAR AS SPEAKER. When The Black Abbot won the Gimcrack Stakes for Lord Dewar, tile honour due to the winning owner to make the principal speech at the annual dinnerof the Gimcrack Club, London, could not have fallen into a worthier .mouth. For Lord Dewar is king of epigrammatic and aphor istic speech. , It wee easy, to envisage , the suc cess Lord Dewar would have in the role. Hie wit-has become his out standing characteristic to the pres ent generation, even though it knows him so well as millionaire dis tiller, sportsman, racehorse owner, big game hunter, and in other spec tacular capacities. He is the king of after-dinner speakers. So all looked forward to the 1928 Gim crack dinner as likely to producc a sprightly utterance, and none was disappointed. Lord Dewar mentioned the intro duction of the totalisator, saying: "I have an idea that the 'tote' will not be heralded to our racecourses on a ti...
