British Millions At Stake From OUR LONDON OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

British Millions At I Stake From OUR LONDON OFFICE D RITAIN has £.500 million in capital invested in what has suddenly become Communist China. . No one was very clear last week what would happen to it. One pessimistic suggestion was that it would go the way of the £260 million which was lost when the Bolsheviks took over in Russia. Other business leaders said that the Communist victory might aid British business interests. The view of those men is that there has been so much disorder in China in the last 30 years that stability, even under a Communist Government, would be the great- est possible aid for trading. That view, of course, might be underestimating the Chinese Com- munists' determination to go hand-in-hand with Russia. * * + ÏN the meantime, white all this * guessing is going on, business firms 'have to admit that, as far as they are concerned, the iron cur- tain has really closed around North China. Most firms are trying to carry on normally in London, but they have heard...

"BUNCH" MILLS LIKES TO ACT WITH HER FAMOUS FATHER Seven-year-old Juliet Mills is quite a film veteran. Already she has appeared in three pictures with her brilliant father. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

"BUNCH" MILLS LUCES TO ACT WITH HER FAMOUS FATHER Seven-year-old Juliet MiHs is quite a film veteran. Already she has appeared in three pictures with her brilliant father. DO you remember the little girl who appeared for a few minutes in the film "October Man"? She acted with John Mills, bouncing excitedly beside him on the seat of a bus. "Bunch" Mills. To amuse her Mills took oui his handkerchief and knotred it up like a rabbit. The little girl laughed merrily at him-arid that was the last you saw of her. The bus skidded on the wet road, ran over a level crossing in front of an express train, and she was killed. John Mills blamed himself for her death, and so the film story went on. Far from being killed in real life, seven-year-old Juliet, John Mills' daughter, enjoyed herself hugely playing the scene with her father. It was the second time she had appeared in a film. Her first role was when she played Patricia Roc as a child in "So Well Remembered." Now she is working on the set ...

Living Cost Will Be Big Issue In Politics By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Living Cost Will Be Big Issue In Politics By OVR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT CANBERRA, Saturday.-The spreading shadow of soaring living costs hung bleakly over the pre-sessional deliberations of Federal Labour Ministers in Canberra this week,' Cost of living will be a major election issue at the Federal polls late this year perhaps even the major issuer That is now accepted, if not particularly relished, in Govern- ment as well as Opposition circles. At Thursday's Cabinet meeting, two senior Ministers, it is under- stood, voiced pretty plainly wide- spread Labour fears at the un- checked upward spiral of prices. This the first rumble of a minor storm which will probably burst when Federal Labour Caucus meets on Tuesday week. A strong move is expected within Caucus to press Mr. Chifley as Treasurer for a positive anti-inflationary programme. . . . MR. CHIFLEY was presum ably able to soothe a Cabinet normally docile with his stock argument that high prices are an election %point in Labour'...

THIS WIDE WOULD-. *» NLWS FROM HERE, AND THERE.** Fiery Cross $ Burns Again NEW YORK.-The Ku Klux Kian-the "invisible Em- pire" of the southern States of the U.S.-is again extending its power, after nearly 20 years of quiescence. This is the third revival in 80 years of a movement which has often slirred the social conscience of America, but which continues legally unchallenged. Nominally the Ku Klux Kian is a fraternal order, licensed by the State of Georgia. In fact, it; is a secret societv. whose record ,is stained with terrorism and murder. It regards its primary task as the persecution of Negroes, but it is also at war with other sections of- the American' community, notably Roman Catholics and Jews. . . . ' *pHE head of the order, Chief ?*? Dragon Samuel Green, has boasted that "Klaverns" (local Kian branches) are being estab- lished at the rate of two a week, not only in Georgia and the South, but in such non-southeçn States as New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl- vania, and Ohio. ...

THE WEEK IN POLITICS In Canberra They Are Saying— [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

I THE WEEK IN POLITICS 11 ? In Canberra They Are Saying CANBERRA is awaiting with ^ cynical interest the,next issue of the Commonwealth Parliamen- tary handbook, which will be printed shortly. There are bets whether the pho- tographs of Parliamentarians supplied by themselves-will be as flatteringly youthful as those in the last 1945 issue. ' In that issue most of the mem- bers are completely unrecognis- able, and it is painfully obvious ,that the photographs were taken many long years ago. For example, the Prime Mini- ster, Mr. Chifley, Frank Brennan, and veteran Labour member for Batman, and Mr. H. P.

BOWL AT THE STUMPS, ADVISES O'REILLY W. J. O'Reilly continues his series on bowling. In this article he stresses the importance of direction. THERE is little reason to stress the importance of direction, in rjowling. It is ob- vious to everyone, "even the smallest schoolboy, that you must bowl at the stumps. Rule one in batting is: "Block every straight ball." Therefore, rule one in bowling is, "Get the ball past the bat." Anyone can get the ball past the bat if he bowls out wide of the stumps. But if he bowls at the stumps and can observe rule one in bowling by getting an occasional one past the bat he will collect his fair share of wickets. Do not waste your time and energy by bowling outside the off stump with the pious hope that the batsman will be mis guided enough to snick catches to the slipfield. That is not only a defeat- ist policy but is certainly a frank admission t ha t you lack the grit and determination to get right on with the job of getting the batsman back into the...

WHAT'S IN THEIR NAME? No. 2 -CHOWDER BAY MORE than a century ago, American whalers used to dr.op into Sydney for "re- freshment," or a spell, after [ a long cruise.

Soon the bay became known as Chowder Bay, and the western headland, Chowder Head. Captain of one of the whalers, T. H. Cliffe, bought an estate on the shores of Chowder Bay. It was known as "Cliffeton." Later' the name was changed to the one we know to-day "Clifton" Gardens. .-E. OAKES

Best-Sellers By Electricity [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Best-Sellers By Electricity By L. SHELLEY YOU will remember that a Bishop, I think, once read "Gulliver's Travels" and commented: "I don't believe it." At least if it wasn't a Bishop it was someone else commenting on some other famous work. I use this rough-and-ready introduction to illustrate how even the greatest of minds may be sceptical of fact or fancy. If 1 did not live in this century in which all the eccentricities of American invention flourish, I should be of the same suspicious turn of mind as the Bishop when I read, in reputable journals, of the doings of Albert E. Sindlinger. Mr. Sindlinger, if current report is to have credence, is the author to-end-all-authors. He operates, of course, in the U.S.A. It seems that this Albert E. Sindlinger, aged 41 and supremely in his right mind, has taken American know-how to its logical conclusion, and harnessed science, to produce best-sellers., . TV/TR.

Sydney Discoveries Giving Impetus To WIDER WAR AGAINST RACE DOPE All States Moving [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

f Sydney Discoveries Giving Impetus ToT, WIDER WAR AGAINST RACE DOPE * All States Moving The AJ.C.'s anti-doping drive will becpme an Australia-wide cam- paign and is the biggest move ever made in the Commonwealth to clean up racing. The startling results which it has pro- duced in New South Wales are already having an effect in other States, where clubs' are co-operating fully with the A.J.C. and will make use of its swab testing facilities. Owners or trainers who may hope that the A.J.C.'s drive is merely a flash in the pan will find it being pushed ahead without any respect for special interests. It is expected that other States will quickly follow suit, and that dope-testing will be general throughout Australia within three months. The Queensland Turf Club is already organising a testing-sys- tem similar to that used in Syd- ney. The Q.T.C.'s recently-ap- pointed analyst, Dr. W. J. Camp- bell, is now in Sydney studying the technique Miss Jean Kimble uses for the A.J.C. tests. Ne...

The Return Of A Great NatureLover [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

The Return Of A Great Nature Lover By L. V. KEPERT SOMEONE in an idle moment recently seems to have started one of those Eng- lish literary-journal contro versies by asking, "Do people still read 'Bevis' these days?" The reason for the question trickled through 'to Sydney last I week when a new edition of it .turned up, a volume m me uni- form edition of the works of Richard Jefferics that Eyre and Spottiswoode are publishing. Jefierics happens to have been bom in November, 1848. The accident of time has brought about a boom in «his work, since more than one publisher resur- rected something of his writings to' celebrate his centenary. Not that a book like |'Bevis" has ever been out of print. It is sub-titled "The Story of a Boy," and even to-day you will prob- ably find some illustrated big-type copy of it among your grandson's books. He possibly did not enjoy it wildly. Children choke at a certain old-fashioned didacticism more easily than adults do. The long chapter, for instance...

THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB A War Novel Grips America [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB A War Novel Grips America By BRIAN CROZIER THERE are two ways of writ- ing a war book. There is the "bird's eye" way, which con- sists of telling a broad narra tive in the general setting of war. The Russian writer, Sholo khov, did something of the kind in "And Quiet Flows the Don," though that was only rartly a war book. Then there is the minute-by minute method, in which the writer lives with his characters, sees into their thoughts, speaks their words, shares their troubles. That was the way of Erich Maria Remarque in "All Quiet on the Western Front." And it is the way of 25 years-old Norman Mailer in "The Naked and the Dead" (Rinehart). It is a successful way. In their hundreds of thousands, Americans are flocking to buy his book. This is the real kind of war book. For war brings put what's inside a man. The threat of death and the monotony of living with the same companions see to that. If a man has rears, passions, obscenities, war will bring them out. And...

Significant Events Of The Week [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 30 January 1949

Significant Events Of Hie Week By COLIN BINGHAM 'T'HE events in China and -*? Japan, combined, consti- tute easily the most significant development of the week. [ With the outstanding suc- cess of the Liberals, a conser- vative party, in the Japanese general elections, and with all China practically written off to the Communists, Japan, has now become more than^evcr the pivot of United States policy in Asia. Although the increase in the Japanese Communist vote by more than 2,000,000 is a nasty fly in the ointment, the indus- trialists of Japan should now be able, with American finan- cial aid, to push on with the country's economic rehabilita- tion. The very understandable idea of the United States Gov- ernment is to transfer to - Japan's own back, from the back of the American taxpay- er, the burden of feeding the Japanese people. But along with that idea goes the belief that a "strong" Japan is essen- tial not only as a buttress of Nippon's newly-implanted de- mocratic,way of life...

... And Started A Myth FROM OUR LONDON OFFICE IllR. STANLEY! In Eng ?'?"??. land now you have only to say, "Mr. Stanley" in any context, and they laugh. They are still telling scores of stories o£ what Mr. Stanley said and did. "Attlee has resigned," they say. "Stanley has summoned the King." At pantomimes, comedians are rolling them in the aisles. "The goose that laid the golden egg belonged-to Mr. Stanley!" At the Old Vic (to Sir Laurence Olivier's annoyance) the biggest laugh line in "The School for Scandal" refers to an impecunious relative, seeking a loan. He is called-Mr. Stanley. As "Cassandra" put it in the "Daily Mirror," "The slippery Mr. Wulkan, who changed into the agile Mr. Koshyzcky, who merged into the transient Mr. Rechtand, and then found it convenient to graduate* abruptly into Mr. Stan- ley."

Peanuts Started Vast African Plan I From OUR LONDON & j WASHINGTON OFFICES f'PHE British Government's ven *? ture into peanut-farming in the far-off jungles of Tanganyika (East Africa) was under close serutiny last week from both sides of the Atlantic. America was interested because the vast peanut scheme was an im- portant part of the new Anglo American plan to develop back- ward areas from Malaya to Africa. The British Foreign Secretary, Mr. Ernest Bevin, had said that Britain would contribute her "knowledge, ability, and re- sources" to working with the United States in expanding the re- sources of backward regions. Americans expect that their geologists, petrologists, chemists, and engineers are going to assist in developing other things besides peanuts. In the two million square miles of Britain's dependent Empire in Africa, they expect to find such( things as aluminium ores in Kenya, north of Tanganyika, and manganese in the Gold Coast, over in the west of the continen...
