It had also become the home of thousands of rab- bits, he added. Mr. Treatt, who is Leader of the State Opposition, was opening the Liberal Party campaign for thc Kahibah by-election on October 31. The unfinished and de- teriorating rail link was clear proof of the Cahill Govern- ment's indifference to the port of Newcastle, he said.
Angle On The Law. Behind The Scenes As A Case Is Prepared [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
j Augie Ou The Law. i ' Behind The Scenes As A Case Is Prepared EVERY court case is drama in itself. Eac has ils individual plot and il individual characters. Anc as with a stage drama, eac! case, however trivial, has t be prepared behind th scenes. The process ls usually mystery to thc uninitiated. Thc "behind the scenes work is of essential import .[ ance in every cause, from ; ! murder trial to a claim fo an unpaid tailor's bill. The dialogue of a cour drama, including thc quos tioning of witnesses, an&lt; their answers, is basicall; controlled by the law o evidence. In the English legal world that law has been built ut through the centuries by th&lt; masters of legal thought ant experience. It has but one object, th« elicitation of the truth. It ii not always appreciated thal j this is one of the most diffi J cult of all legal tasks. Let us take an example of how a case has to be pre- pared for presentation to a court.

The ghosts go north FACT correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
The ghosts go north FACT correspondent A ghost was seen .riding in a motor car last week, a delegate told the International Conference of Celtic Folklore. The conference was held this week at Stornoway, on the island of Lewis, in the Hebrides, Scotland. Dr. I. C. Peate, of the Nätional Museum of Wales, said a member of his own family saw the ghost in an Austin car. The conference gravely discussed the prevalence of fairies, ghosts and witches. It was agreed . that in Gaelic Scotland they have a wildness and malicious- ness not seen elsewhere. A fairy lover Said retired headmaster James Thomson: "All the ghosts in Lewis are now dead, though it wasn't long since I had to see an old man home because he was afraid- he might meet one, "I wouldn't say all . witches in Lewis have died out yet.'' - Another, delegate, Ci Maclean, said he knew of a .woman who had a fairy lover. " Professor R. T. Chris- tiansen, froni Oslo, men- tioned' a successful and educated man in Norway who had been "thr...

FILBERT MANT THE WAY 1 SEE IT [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
¡THE WAY 1 SEE IT WHEN Dr. Julian Huxley visit vv ed Adelaide, the people of Australia's "city of churches"; were shocked to discover that he; doesn't believe in God. j It started an angry argument that is still &lt; going on and is likely to continue long after ! Dr. Huxley is dead. ! Huxley has expressed his views on God in these ! words: "A faint trace of God, half-metaphysical and half ' magic, still broods over our world like the smile of a \ Cheshire cat, but the growth of psychological knowledge will rub even that from the universe." i People like Huxley are inclined to dazzle us with \ science in explaining the mysteries of life but they never i succeed in getting back to real beginnings. i Life began, they say. in ooze or slime. That's scientifically correct but they cannot explain who put the ooze or slime there in the first place. Whenever I feel too materialistic, 1 go out at night I and gaze in awe at the stars, because all the Huxleys &lt; in thc world ...

The Nature of Things WHAT IS A LOCUST? [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
WHAT IS A LOCUST? IN our everyday lan * euaae, few names of in- sects are as baiïling as that of "locust." "Grasshop- per" gives trouble, too. To the rising generation, (he word locust means only one thing-those deafening insects which haunt our trees in plague numbers about every third summer. The correct entomologi- cal term is cicada. Cicadas don't look any- thing like grasshoppers, and are not even distantly rerat ed to them. Differences between true locusts and grasshoppers are not so easy to sort out. A plague of grasshoppers now threatens to sweep across our inland. But the refinements of science insist that these are not true grass- hoppers. They should, in- stead, be given their exact label of plague locusts. Science applies thc word locust specifically to those species of a grasshopper-type which are usually noted for their habits of getting to- gether in hordes and migrat- ing in masses for many miles. There are no simple rules by which the inexpert per- son can separate ...

Blast Wrecks U.S. Carrier, 33 Men Dead [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
Blast Wrecks U.S. Carrier, 33 Men Dead BOSTON, Saturday (A.A.P.).-At least 33 men Mere killed and 40 injured when an explosion wrecked the U.S. aircraft-carrier Leyle yesterday.

First reports placed the death roll at six. This tolal mounted rapidly as rescuers went into action, and the fuil casualty list is not yet known. The explosions occurred when the Leyte was being overhauled at the naval shipyard annexe in South Boston. Some ot the victims were burnt black in the initial blast.
