HOLIDAYS HARD ON THE MONKEYS By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

HOLIDAYS HARD ON THE MONKEYS By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT School holidays arc certainly no fun {or the monkeys caged at a public baths near Brighton-le-sands. There were about 600 children and some adults at the'baths when I went out there yesterday. Groups of children were thick around the unbarricadcd cages. Many of the children were teasing the monkeys. Some of the children fed the monkeys on ice cream, leaves, chip potatoes, and banana skins. Nearby, in other cages, there were cockies, galahs, a tortoise, a cooped-up pheasant, and a pea- cock who didn't look so gay. One small boy was bashing at the wire near a white cocky. I asked him what he was doing that for. "For fun," he said. The small boy said the cocky could talk "real good." I looked to see if there were any ladies around, but 1 guessed' that cocky had lost his voice. In another zoo near Doll's Point I saw two swans and six ducks in a long, slim yard, with a pond of dirty water about three feet by two feet and perhaps ankle...

a thousand SONG HITS a year [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

. a thousand SONG HITS a year Can you write popular songs? If you think you can you are one of thousands of Australians. In this article the author dis- cusses the song-writing business and gives some advice to would-be Gershwins. By PHILLIP M An1 IS SAM RICHARDS, who sings noisily «through his shower each morn- ing, found himself yodelling a song that, he de- cided, he had "made up himself." His wife agreed that the tune "wasn't bad," and to- gether they patched up some words for it that "weren't bad" either. Sam told a music-publish- ing friend to stand by for a smash song hit. Friend re- ceived the song a few days later, and wearily told Sam, as tactfully as possible, that the song was one of the worst he had seen. Mr. Jack Davis, director of one of Australia's largest music houses, shook his head a little sadly as he told me this story. Song-writing is the most popular hobby in the country. It looks easy, and the rewards for success are great. Every year thousands of Australians...

Bolted, Almost Won-Swabbed His mouth still bleeding from an injury caused by a barrier mishap, Sunardo, was swabbed after he had run second to Faraway in the First Paddington Handicap at Randwick yesterday. Sunàido was beaten a neck after he had broken through the barrier and can- tered from the seven fur- longs to the post before the start. Owner-trainer, Frank Grisdale, said after the race that but for the escapade Sunardo would have «on easily. He dcsciibed Sunardo as the most highly-strung horse he had c\cr liaincd. "This is the second time in his last three starts that Sunardo has been swabbed," Grisdale said. The swabbing completed a chapter of incident for Sunardo. The Hain on which Sunaido travelled fiom Newcastle was de- land, and the gelding arrived al Kandw.ck less than half-an-hour before ihe stall of his lace. When he biokc through the Ibarnci he lost a tooth. One follower of the Giisdalc stable had Sunardo, who started at 33-1, running for £8,000. When Sunardo plunged ...

COMMENT BY THE SPORTS STAFF [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

PB^PW------I-MW j COMMENT «V THK SPORTS STAFF TIM BURKE, at the age ot " l8, has done more than his share lo help New South Wales win the Sheffield Shield this season. . That has helped to make him popular with - N.S.W. cricket administrators. But Burke's slow-batting, is most unpopular with_ the paying customers, even in his own Stale. When he left on Friday, after a determined 37 in -more than three hours, there was an audible sigh of relief, rather than dismay. Brickwall defence can be of value when^ one's side is struggling, but a man who can score only 290 runs in 16 hours at the wickets, is more likely to drive customers away from cricket grounds than atti act them. And that would make him most unpopular with the cricket administrators. , * * * AUSTRALIAN athletics ** stars feel grateful for the long-delayed introduction of scientific apparatus at big carnivals, especially the vane anemometer. This instrument, discreetly positioned in the arena at the Sydney Cricket Ground for...

HARBOUR RACE German Boat Entrant [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

HARBOUR RACE German Boat Entrant An 18sq. metre sailing boat, which the German Navy used for training in small boat sailing will compete in a race in the Anniversary Regatta on Sydney Harbour to-mor- row afternoon. She is the Swantewitt, one of two German boats that have been sent out by the Royal Navy for use by members of the Austra- lian branch of the Royal Naval Sailing Association. This association (the Commo- dore of which is Captain (E.) J. I K. Illingworth, R.N./ who won the first Sydney-Hobart r»ce in j Rani), has branches based on naval establishments in many I parts of the world. Its members, many of whom i own their own yachts, help to train young naval officers and ratings in sailing. Naval authorities generally agree that the official training in sailing given by Flinders, Naval Depot is hopelessly inadequate on the practical side. OUT-OF-DATE Most sailing boats available in the Navy are clumsy and out-of date. The Admiralty, however, re- cognises the value of competit...

THE WOMAN'S VIEWPOINT Should A Portrait Be A 'Likeness'? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

THE WOMAN'S VIEWPOINT Should A Portrait Be A 'Likeness'? EVERYWHERE this last week I have heard women discussing the Archibald Prize, and about three-quarters of the visitors to the Gallery have been women. Some of them are puzzled, but I think the usual verdict is that the picture lives, even if the model is not shown in her most flattering" light. Still, she likes it, and she ought to know. I would like to put in a plea for Joshua Smith's portrait of one of our Grand Old Women, Dame Mary Gilmore. It is not only like her, but is also a dignified study of brains and character. It should" be going to.some national resting place, where we.could all enjoy it permanently. Just a word, though, about por- traits as a whole. There are two types of commission, the family who want mother painted as they know her (a portrait is a picture with something wrong with the mouth, as the cynic artist said), and the public body or institution who want a record of their dis- tinguished member. It seem...

KEPT RACE HONOURS IN FAMILY [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

KEPT RACE HONOURS IN FAMILY Laughter, 50-1 winner of yesterday's A.J.C. Valicare Handicap, is a great-grand- daughter of the famous mare after whom the race was named. ' Laughter carried the all-green colours of Valicare's owner, Mr. P. H. Osborne, vice-chairman of the A.J.C, She was the first runner Mr, Osborne had had in a Valicare Handicap, which'was established as a race for three-year-old fillies in 1946. Neither Mr. Osborne nor Frank McGrath (ttainer) was optimistic about Laughter's pros- pects. The owner, always a small bettor, invested £1 on the filly and McGrath did riot back her at all. After .being in front of only Frcstona turning for home, Laughter finished strongly to win by a length and a quarter from Lady In Grey (66-1), wilh Freslona (33-1) a head away third. , Weight Told Wattle, who started at 11-8 on for the race, led to within a furlong of the post, but weak- ened badly to finish sixth.

Startling Theory On Reversal By Challenge Winner "SAN DOMENICO DOPED LAST START" Owner Now Convinced [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Startling Theory On Reversal By Challenge Winner "SAN DOMENICO DOPED LAST START" Owner Now Convinced By John Schofield R. Formosa, owner-trainer of San Domenico, who yesterday won the Challenge Stakes at Randwick, declared aftfer the race that he was now convinced the gelding had heen doped when he failed in the Carrington Stakes on December 28. San Domenico raced badly in the Carrington and pulled up in distress, but yesterday he spreadeagled a field of first-class sprinters to win the Challenge. The Carrington and the Challenge are both six-fur long races. San Domenico started 7-4 favourite for the Carrington, but yesterday went out at 5-J. After San Domenico had weighed in yesterday, Formosa said: "1 now believe that San Do- menico was doped before his run in the Carringtpn.

Transaction's Claim In Anniversary [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Transaction's Claim In Anniversary Transaction, now a firmer fav- ourite than ever, has all the qualities needed to win the Anniversary Handicap (lim.) at Randwick to morrow. His dead-heat yesterday in the January Handicap with Royal Lad, to whom he conceded 141b, confirm- ed his winning form at Rosehill a week- earlier. In that race, the Lord Mayor's Cup (lim) Royal Lad finished third, receiving only 61b from Transaction. To-morrow he concedes Royal Lad 71b and should beat him again.1 Most trouble to Transaction might come from Conductor and Avalanche, who did not start yesterday. Risk To Books Success for Transaction will be cosily to doubles bookmakers who say they have overlaid him with the Challenge Stakes winner, San Domenico. Because of San Domcnico's failure in the Carrington Stakes they gambled against the stable getting him fit enough to win yesterday's sprint. Royal Lad's form has brought him to second favouritism with Crusader for the Anniversary. The two are more than t...
