MEN AND WOMEN WHO FEEL THEY OWN THE BOAT [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
MEN AND WOMEN WHO FEEL THEY OWN THE BOAT BY THE DOG EXPERT. Most ferry boats are conveniences of the minute, steps over, with no more individuality than tramcars; but the- Manly Boat is a little world. Every Manly man has an unconfessed idea that he owns the Manly ferry, just as he has an unconfessed idea that he ?wns the Corso and the pines, and that the moon and stars are his whenever they shine on the Vil lage. The Manly man feels that Manly is somehow supreme, a special decoration of the State. Ask any Manly man what he thinks of Coogce or Bondi, and you will understand at once what I mean. The Manly man believes that the surf is finer and the water clearer and more wholesome on ^lanly beach than_ any where else in Australia— or in the world, for that matter. When I talk of the Manly man I refer, of course, to the man who lives in Manly all the year round. The casual excur sionists and Summer visitors are regarded with a certain indulgent condescension. They are the busy bees th...
MINE-FISHING IN THE SEA GERMANS WORK UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
MINE-FISHING IN THE SEA GERMANS WORK UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS Duty, courage, and efficiency. These three words, says Mr. Gordon Bruce, i of the New York Tribune, are the summary of my week's trip in the North Sea aboard a British mine sweeper. It is hazardous work, this sweeping the seas for enemy mines, laid under cover of darkness, by the small boats of the Germans. On my arrival at the naval station I was re ceived cordially by the commodore in com mand. At mess that night there were a num ber of visiting officers from various branches of the service. And durins the evening I got some fresh ideas of what the British Navy stands for. These men told of the most thril ling experiences ir the most casual manner. And each one seemed to consider the other fellow's job most dangerous. INGENUITY OF THE ENEMY. They explained the method by which the seas are kept clear. They drew diagrams to illustrate the mechanism of mines, paying due tribute to the ingenuity of the enemy. I was amazed at...

A BRILLIANT RECORD Mr. H. £? Frccmfiti, lion, secretary mi tlic i Glebe Junior Rugby League F.C., writes : 'Ke i the Balmain Junior League Club, Fitzroy United. The Glebe Junior Club was formed in | 1914, and won the Glebe Junior competition C grade the s»me year. In 1915 the club won the ' B and C grades and this season, only one grade being run, has won that also. Thus the club has won three seasons i:i succeision, and has not been beaten yet. In 19U the club : scored 186 points to 11 ; in 1915, 123 points to IS ; and .this season so far, 131 points to 14. Thus the total for the three seasons is 460 [ points to 40.

HEROES OF THE KHAKI. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
HEROES OF THE KHAKI. Since tie last icsue of the Arrow we have had aorae disquieting news with respect to men in the firing line — men whom we all know either personally or through seeing them in the. field. Major Frank Coen. of the Univer sity, and Major E. W. Kirke. of the Manly Club, have both been killed fighting in France. The list of footballers who have been killed or wounded has become very big. so big that every man left behind here will feel the sad ness of it all while there is lif: in him. When we think of such grand men as Major Jim McManamey. Major Braund Major Frank Coen. Major Kirke. Sergeant Ted Larkin, Har old George. Fred Thompson, Nulla Roberts, Dr. Johnny Verge, Dr. D .R.

WHAT'S IN A NAME ? [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
WHAT'S IN A NAME ? The other day there was a meeting in New York of the managers of motion-picture houses and legitimate theatres in which many things were discussed. Among the items listed as 'new business' was consideration of participa tion in the preparedness parade. The managers voted to participate. They then began the formulations of plans designed to make t'ici r section of the procession notable. 'A Iiugc banner would be the thing,' declared upon it: ''Allied Amusement Interests ot San Francisco.' ' The next to get up was a little German. 'I move,' he said, 'to strike out the word 'allied.' It is offensive to me and to ail other good German-Americans. Make it '-jr.it;d.' ' And they made it 'united' Amcric-uns. 'A little pink r.-rl baby and a lif.Ie fluffy baby lion look harmless. But they both grow up to be tyrants,' said the delightful old fellow as he ordered peach Melbas for his two little granddaughters at me byancy 1.0a tr.c otner day.

FOOTBALLERS WHO PLAYED THEIR GREATER PART By THE CYNIC. The Rnbcy League's season was brought to ? fitting clue with tho City Cup final last week. Pitting in the nature of the battle be tween Glebe and Eastern Suburbs. Fitting. perhaps, that Eastern Suburbs won. though ' one is not so sure about that. With the season dosing so early, and the weather still wintry. it is a matter for regret that the League did not think of arranging a big match in aid of the patriotic funds, one such as New South Wales v. The Rest of the State. Such a match would have produced fine football, and have drawn a very big crowd, seeing that there is still plenty of nip in the afternoon air. The selection of tne representative team would have given the critics among the crowd something to discu...

THE WARWICK FARM INNOVATION WILL IT ACT ? [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
THE WARWICK FARM INNOVATION WILL IT ACT ? It has been reported that Mr. E. E. A. Oatley, owner of the Warwick Farm Race course, contemplates making several improve ments .to that track. It is his intention to provide a straight half-mile run for youngsters, starting at the six furlongs and finishing at the two furlongs. It is also intended to provide accommodation for the judge there, and the result ot the race will be telephoned across as soon as the horses have passed the post. This idea may be all right for owners of green two year-olds, but it must not be forgotten the public keeps the game going, and they have to be considered, and I do not for one moment think the idea would be a success. 1 It is no use denying .that a majority of people that go to the races now go on the chance that they may win something, and for the sole pur pose of betting. Eut there arc others who simply go to see the racing, and I should not imagine they would fancy lousing at a finish two or three furlo...

Bexley and Paddington, while possessing no chance of gaining the honors, have important parts to play, and one is quite prepared to see both University and Petersham downed in the extra games.

And those trainers who are thinking of giving their fat horses a run with a view to future events might be well advised to leave them at home. This 'respectable' practice of running a 'dead 'un' has found favor in various quarters for many years ; but the stewards have rightly decided they will have no more of it, and arc going to treal the high and mighty the same as the meek and lowly. No sentiment in horse-owning ! Nons«nse ! Why, some men. after selling a horse they have been racing at registered meeting, rarely miss an unregistered meeting at which it is compet ing. Their presence on snch occasions is, oJ course, entirely due to the sentimental interest they take in an animal that once carried their colon ; nothing else.

The star picture is a rive-act drama, 1h: Primal Lure, featuring William S. Har., a. id deals with the rough-and-ready life far up m the North-west of America. Its background— the trees, the ice, and the mountains — are mu:h the tame as those in The Spoilers; but the story is entirely different, and abounds with tense and thrilling situations. The remainder of the Triangle programme consists of a five-act drama. The Last Act, a charming production in which Bessie ttarri scale is seen in a role quite at variance with any of the pirts she has played previously. She appears as a theatrical star, and her acting; and her dressing leave nothing to be desired. There was also a two-act comedy.
