Oh, Suzanne! [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
Oh, Suzanne! The London Lawn Tennis Association habs de cided that in connect.ion with the photogra?hing. of women players during tournamentsa, some of the ssapChots were poSitively iudecent. Mrs. W. T. Rowe, a State champion, believes steps should be taken to prevent phatographers from sitting or kneeling on the ground to take snap shots of women players. When a photo. man is married His predicament is queer, For his wife will swear he tarried O'er the photographs so clear. And she'll say, You musn't kneel dear, When the tennis you are taking, For the postures are so strange, dear, And the criticisms raking. "And though Suzanne may make hearts gladder, Hie contocrtions are erratic, So if you want her take a ladder- ' On this I'm most emphatic. So he'll take them plain and simple, Looking downward from his height, And you'll never glimpse a dimple, For they'll make them play at night.

"'BETRAYAL OF STATE" NORTH-SOUTH RAILWAY S To the Editor. Mr. 'T. Langdon Parsons: The public of South Australia are thoroughly awake to the fact that the Common wealth Parliament are preparing to rob South Australia of her rights in con nection with the construction cf the N'orth-South Railway. The Price Government threw away cur vast heritage in exchange for what we had spent on it, plus a promise to build the North-South Railway. Many believers in the Northern Territory, de sparing of South Australia ever doing anything with the Northern Territory, reluctantly fell in with the transfer. Personally, I was absolutely opposed to such a. ghastly blunder. The Commonwealth Government is' how proposing to build the railwayj down to Daly Waters, but nothing is to be done from Oodnadatta. up. Is it niot only too apparent that the Com monwealth Government, backed up by a large majority of the Federal Puarlia ment. is deliberately proceeding to break faith with South Australia?

""THE BOSS" O4F T~ALD3RA His Adventures ~mong Dealers " DESPERATION MAKES IMEAT CHEAP No. 2.-By a Special Representative. Safely entrenched as it may now be, and growing almost as you watch it, there was a time a few years ago when it looked as though there would be no Taldra and no pigs. The story of how they were saved is typical of The Boss. The offer of 10,000 sheep, well off the market price, tempted him, and when he signed his name to the purchase note he gambled with the future. It was a year when feed was scarce and no paddocks were available. "I was up against it," he says. '"The sheep were dying, and it looked as though Taldra and everything else would $o with them. I had to get some way out, and suddenly I struck it. If I could not sell them alive I would sell them dead." He did, and added a butcher's shop to the heterogeneous collection in Grote street. The sheep were railed to Ade laide and put through the shop as mut ton at a time when it was sold from Sd. to 9d. a pou...

Hugh King, assisted by Misses'I. Penny, E. Wool ley. and Messrs. F. S. Pilgrim and Sabel Gribbell. The songs chosen for the day were "God Bless the Prince of WTales," "There's a Land." "Come to the Fair," "The Minstrel Boy," and "Come Lasses and Lads." Nervous at first and with half the crowd not singing, the volume grew as the familiar words were repeated, and within 10 minutes the community fel lowship that marks the gatherings had the crowd in its grip. The nervous glances at neighbors ceased, and from every throat came the loyal words stir ring the sluggish blood "Oh. let the pray'r re-echo, God bless the Prince of Wales." But that is only one side of the sing ing. I...
