LEAGUE TRIALS AT MERRYLANDS [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 22 March 1950
LEAGUE TRIALS AT MERRYLANDS : -Further Rugby League trials. were1 held at Merrtilaids; Oval on Satur:lay when Parramatta,: met North Sydney. Parramatta convincinzlyv dr feated Norths in the main match 7-3. Phelps, a try, Hobbs and Spelu cer goals, were the local scorers. On form displayed, it appears that Parramatta will retain most of last season's combination. Only players who appear likely. to force their way into the firsts. are the . young Cootamvndra Maher Cup flanksman, Hen nicker, and former first grade winger Ted Evans, who may make the centres. Former soccer International Ken Hough, appears to have little chance of ousting Jones for the' reserve grade custodian position.

"NEW" STREET DELAY COSTLY [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 22 March 1950
"NEW" STREET 'DELAY COSTLY The erection of eight shops, a £30,000, three-storey block of offices and several other substantial buildings was held up, because of the Parramatta City Council's failure to hurry the survey and position of the new street. This was stated at the annual meeting of the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce. Ald. Horwood admitted the scheme had been held up for months because the council had had no surveyor. Alderman Thomas stressed the urgent necessity of the new street. He said it was ridiculous and uneconomic for people to grow vegetables and raise poultry on land worth perhaps hun- dreds of pounds per foot. Mr. Ron Goode declared that the delay in fixing the posi- tion of the street was completely unnecessary. A ton of action was needed. Already people had been prevented building by the council in the area concerned for over two years and that was a shocking business. &nbsp; The chamber will urge the council to speed up fixing of the site of the new str...

NIGHT TENNIS REFUSED [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 22 March 1950
NIGHT TENNIS REFUSED Operation of a night tennis court at the corner of Holds- worth Street and Merrylands &nbsp; &nbsp; Road would constitute a danger to traffic, Ald. L. Young, said at Holroyd Council meeting. Ald. .Young said it was pro- posed to establish a night ten- nis court at the intersection of four streets where, fatal acci- dents had recently occurred. It would be impossible, he said, to shield lights satisfactorily from oncoming traffic. Application for operation of the night court was refused by council.
