Improved Form in Bowls Championship [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 24 May 1950

Improved Form in Bowls Championship Five matches were played in the Parramatta singles championship last Saturday and the event has now reached the quarter-finals. Taken generally the form shown was an improvement on that- of the previous week. The most interesting contest was that in which Fred Casey and Sid Pye were in opposition. Casey was one of the "A" pen nal:: captains this year, while Pye is relatively a young player. They were 12-all at the 13th end after which Pye forged ahead to 23-15. Then Casey, with a four and a three in suc cessive ends, reduced the gap to 23-25, but Pye came again to win 31-26. It was a good dis play by both men and if Pye can maintain his form he will be hard to beat in the closing stages. Bob Telfer, another of the promising younger men, proved too good for No. 1 skipper, Jack Fielding. At the conclu sion of the 16th end, Telfer held an advantage of 18-10, which four ends later had been reduc ed to 18-14. However, Telfer again drew away, the final ...

From Paddock to Punter (By HARRY QUIGLEY.) If there is anything in a name Rosehill trainer, Jack Daniels, should have two champion jockeys, in the making at his stables. They are Tommy Lewis and Peter Donoghue. As all racegoers snow Bobby Lewis was one of the best jockeys .Australiha has produced and Steve Donoghue was Eng land's ace jockey for years. Both Daniels' lads have shown riding ability and one of them has given evidence of brains by passing the Intermediate exam. +" -+*' * Some years ago, well-known sportsman, Ossie Keysen owned a very useful galloper named Sally and it would appear thait he has another in Prominent.

There was no public support for Prominent who went out at 100 to 1, but the ringmen will not be so liberal when next he starts.

PROGRESS ASS'N HAS GROUCH [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 24 May 1950

PROGRESS " ASS'N HAS GROUCH May's Hill Progress Association thinks Holroyd Council is wast ing its time and money if it only spends about £320 on two streets in the area. Council' recently voted £150 for recoixstiuctibn work on Webb Street, and £170 for similar work in Laura Street, May's Hill. The association has told coun cil: "If this money covers all the work to be done, then the work will be an utter "waste of money and time. "Both streets will be worse than they are at present." The Engineer (Mr. J. McCle land) told council that the money provided for light shaping to formation and shale surfacing about 18ft. wide along the centre of the roadways. Alderman E. H. Martyn: "Some streets in the municipality haven't had £10 spent on them since God knows when. "These people are living in a new area, and they are lucky that council has provided the money for the works." Council agreed to tell the as sociation that the allocation was considered "equitable."

Winter Motoring [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 31 May 1950

Winter Motoring With the approach of winter, the N.R.M.A. reniinds motorists travelling in cold areas of special precautions to be adopted when the temperature drops sharply. Mr. C. H. Napthali, N.R.M.A. chief engineer, advises owners to drain the radiator, cylinder block, pump, etc., on cars to be left stationary for any time say, overnight - or treat the water with an anti-freeze solu tion. Simplest mixture is .six parts of water to four of glycerine, which protects down to zero Fahrenheit. Eliminate all leakages from hoses and connections, radiator, cylinder head gasket and pump glands, otherwise loss of glyce rine raises the freeze point:dan gerously. A set of tyre chains and main tenance of correct tyre pressures will also be necessary.
