Battle Of Brims At Randwick [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Battle Of Brims At Randwick CMARTNÈSS in headlines was ^ a battle of the brims at the first day of the Anniversary holi- day meeting yesterday. Hats cither overflowed with huge brims as a defence against the sun or were little and brimless, many with new short haircuts beneath. ' Hats, big and little, were an- chored with a wide variety of hatpins. One model in golden straw was held in place with two outsize gold-headed pins, another rough s.raw was caught with pins topped with clusters of miniature shells and pearls, and a fine white straw had quills mounted on feathers cut to resemble arrows. Most women managed to achieve, and keep, a surprisingly cool look in the face of the hot sun that blazed on the stands. If feet may have suffered, faces did not, and there were few of the -pink faces and shiny noses usually associated with a summer's day meeting. INDIVIDUALITY Midsummer fashions were cool and smart. Individual touches introduced to ensembles gave an air of chic to the meeting...

MUSIC AND THE THEATRE Town Hall Is Unkind To Music [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

MUSIC AND THE THEATRE; Town Hall Is Unkind To Music By Lindsey Browne CHIEF trouble with the Sydney Symphony Or- chestra right now is not ks personnel or the way it play's, but the place in which it plays. A skilled orchestra in a hall that is acoustically bad is no better off than a juggler who does his act in a photo- grapher's dark-room, or a glamour girl who sees herself fattened by a Luna Park mirror. Sydney Town Hall is a reput- able edifice. On a clear day there is no chance of mistaking it for a service station or a mortuary or a life insurance office. Its ornate lines still de- light architects who have wearied of the harsh simplicities and busi- ness-like perpendiculars of the streamlined age. It is very plea- santly behind the times, so to say. It is an excellent timekeeper for George Street, a distinguished venue for mayoral howdy-do's, and a useful address for political get-togethers of the kind that measure success by largeness of scale rather than by intimacy of detai...

Notes On The Beat [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Notes On The Beat EUGENE GOOSSENS is noth- ing if not ambitious for the Conservatorium Opera School. He has chosen Verdi's "Falstaff" for the mid-year production of 1^4^, and he is said to have his eye on the Puccini triptych of one-acters .-"Suor Angelica" (sentiment), "11 Tabarro" (tragedy), and "Gianni Schicchi" (comedy)-for the end of-year bill. l . . . THIS will be a big year for Beethoven in Sydney-all of his string quartets will be pre- sented by the Música Viva So- ciety, which is introducing a sec- ond series of concerts this year, and all of his piano and" violin sonatas will be played by Hepzi bah Menuhin and Ernest Llewel- lyn who will give their first recital in Sydney on March 29. . . . PIANIST WALTER GIESEK 1NG returned to France from New York last week after an un- happy stay of two days. He did not relish the pickets who assembled outside Carnegie Hall, where his concert was cancelled, or the prospect of having to prove at an official inquiry that "he really wasn't ...

FILMS REVIEWED "Monsieur Verdoux" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

* FILMS REVIEWED*) "Monsieur Ver doux1* CHARLES CHAPLIN'S com- edy of -murders, "Monsieur Verdoux," is a classic. It merges comedy, tragedy, slapstick, and social criticism with the lightness of style and the depth of convic- tion that, until now, have always seemed to be the prerogative of European films. Chaplin himself is a Chaplin we have never seen before; in- stead of the grotesque little tramp of other years, he presents himself here as a dapper httle Frenchman of the very best boulevardes, with just the impishness and fastidious- ness needed to give ¿lis film the flavours of high comedy, and just the compassion and tenderness to give it the mood of satirical tragedy. True, some of the old slapstick Charlie is there under this debonair disguise. He permits himself to fall out of a window, to wrinkle his nose at the ridicu- lous feather boa worn by the lady in his arms, to imagine himself to be dying from his own poison'. Crockery is smashed, spinsters faint, and Verdoux makes...

Mme.

DUTCH GIRL FALLS IN W.A. RACE PERTH, Saturday.-In a sensational 100 yartís race here to-day Dutch champion, Mrs. Fanny Blankers-Koen fell two yards from the tape and was beaten out of a place. Soon afterwards, how- ever, she won the 80-metres hurdles in Australian record time of 11.5s. The old record was 11.6s, set by Shirley Strickland last year. Mrs. Blankers-Koen won to- day's high jump event at 4ft lOin. After the meeting the Dutch star was examined by a doctor and told that fluid had formed on the right knee as a result of the fall. . The doctor ordered Mrs. Blan- kers-Koen not to put her foot on the ground until she reached Mel- bourne. She will not begin training for her Sydney appearance next Sat- urday until receiving further medical advice. Mrs, Blajjkecs-Koen appeared" to be beaten at the time of the fall by W.A. girls Verna Johnson and Shirley Strickland. 'Miss Johnson won the event by inches from Miss Strickland.

Correct Putting Played Big Part In Open Win [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Correct Putting Played Big Part In Open Win ? -,-» By H. "OSSIE" PICKWORTH T WON my first Australian Open championship at Royal Sydney, Rose Bay, in .October, 1946, about nine months after my discharge ?from the Army, Although the title fell to me at my first attempt-I'm naturally proud that they list that as a world record-I had a few obstacles to get over before ,1 considered that my game was anything near championship class. 1 had to get down to hard, solid practice, not only to make up for the golfless years I spent in the Service, but to get acquainted with myself. I found that the years had made me 'more solid, and heavier; my muscles had "set," I had thickened m the shoulders, and I had grown older. All this affected me to some extent-and to some extent I felt that 1 was improved by it. For instance. 1 found that my swing had shortened a good deal and 1 couldn't take the club back as far as I used to; this made me more compact throughout my game. In this matter of backswing. ...

M.C.C. Faces Appointment Of Professional Captain By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

M.C.C. Faces Appointment Of Professional Captain By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT ,. .,.....-??? ?^?II. LONDON, Jan. 29.-The report from South Africa that M.C.Ç. captain George Mann intends to retire at the end of the season brings nearer the inevitable appointment of a professional captain for England. ALREADY feelers have ?**. been put out and it ap- pears almost certain that such an appointment will be made for England's, next tour of Australia in 1950. Obviously the M.C.C. does not relish the prospect, but the ""act is that post-war > economics have almost driven .the amateur out of the game. Alex Bannister suggests in the 'Daily Mail" that Len Hutton be jroomed for the captaincy of the lext team lo'visit Australia. Bannister points out that only Northampton's new skipper, Treddie Blown, who represents he last of cricket's blue-blooded ristocracy, stands in the way 6f i professional appointment. "But is the likeable George good enough as a player, and has he sufficient experience as ...

LA BEACH IN RECORD 100 SPRINT Wins Victorian Race In 9.5s [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

LA BEACH IN RECORD 100 SPRINT Wins Victorian Race In 9.5s MELBOURNE, Saturday.-Panamanian Lloyd La Beach to-day broke the Australian 100 yards record by one-tenth of a second. . - He won the final of the Victorian cham pionship race in 9.5s, after clocking 9.8s in his heat. John Bartram (Vic.) was second in the final, with Morris Curotta (N.S.W.) third. Herb McKenley, of Jamaica, literally romped home in the final of the 440yds championship. He won by 12 yards in 48.1s, three-fifths of a second behind the Australian record. Lack of real opposition ruined any chance of a new record. Despite previous starting trouble, La Beach got away like a rocket in the final of the 100 yards, and had the race won in the first fi\e yards. His time of 9.5s was l-10s faster than the best national figures jointly shared by John Treloar, Dr. Brian Dunn, and Jimmy Carlton, all of New South Wales. Slight Breeze A slight northerly breeze fanned across the track at the gun. La Beach gained body balance wit...

SEVEN COUNTRY RECORDS FALL Seven records, five junior and two open, were broken at the men's country athletic championships at Henson Park yesterday. Two Achilles (Newcastle) club members broke the open records. Harry Hayes, who timed 4m 30.2s for the mile run, clipped 13 seconds off J. Stephens's record established in 1940.

Kangaroos Lead 6-5 At Half-time In Third Rugby League Test [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Kangaroos Lead 6-5 At Half-time In Third Rugby League Test BRADFORD, Jan. 29.-Australia held a narrow 6-5 lead at half-time in the final Rugby League Test match against England here to-day; England scored first, Ward crossing after a blind-side move and then kicking the goal, but Lulham and Hall scored two tries after brilliant Kangaroo attacks., Dense fog which had blanketed the area for 36 hours cleared this morning. A crowd of 35,000 was packed around the ground, under bright sunshine, when play started. The start was delayed for five minutes because of the late ar- rival of the Kangaroos. This was caused by the Aus- tralians forgetting to order taxis from their Bradford hotel. Some players travelled to the ground "by tram. I There was a last-minute change in the English team. Second-row forward R. Nichol- son was taken ill and Bill Hud- son of Wigan replaced him. Australia fielded the side selected. Schubert was penalised two minutes after the kick-off for a play-the-ball breach...

FIGHTS I'LL NEVER FORGET PAIR BROKE ALL THE RULES [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

1 FIGHTS I'LL JNEVER FORGET PAIR BROKE ALL I THE RULES Joe Wallis and I have always agreed that the Fitz Holland-Jimmy Gabby contest was the roughest and toughest we ever saw. By JACK MUNRO The bout took place in the Victoria Theatre, Newcastle, in 1919. In those days Joe and I used to go up to Newcastle for one fight a week-Joe as referee and myself as promoter. For some reason Clabby and Holland, both Americans, hated the sight of each other. They had already had a private fight in San Francisco, and the feud was continued when they met in Sydney. They had two lights in Sydney, and Clabby won both-the first time on points over 20 rounds, the second time by a K.O. in the sixth. Powerful Punch Clabby had been world welter- weight champion, but at this time he fought as a middleweight. He was very fast, with a weav- ing, bobbing style, but a power- ful puncher as well. Holland was burning for revenge on Clabby. I thought Newcastle would be a good spot for their next meet EUGENE CRIQU...

Houdini Started His Career Filching Pies \ From His Mother's Locked Pantry and ¡Recame / The World's Greatest Master of Magic By JOE LEE (For many years the personal representative of Houdini) TO the average eight year-old boy a locked cupboard would be a discouraging obstacle. But Harry Weiss-later to be- come famous as Harry Hou dini, the world's unparalleled master of magic-was no average eight-year-old. He had filched one of his mother's fresh-baked apple pies the day before and, she, afraid that he might get an urge to repeat his performance, had put the remaining pies under lock and key. Harry inspected the lock from all angles, then set to work. When his mother re- turned an hour later the cup- board was still locked, but the pies were gone. Looking askance at her son, she called in a locksmith and a new lock was installed. Next baking day the pies were locked up again-and again they disappeared. Harry Houdini's mother never asked him how he conquered those locks and he never...
