From Paddock to Punter [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 14 June 1950

:. x?; -y Y ~-y Quigley. Rosehill .trainers. are having a tough time trying to; get their;horses fit for races. As often as not. the course proper..is :so: soaked that galloping on it is out of the :question. And the: screenings, track has its pitfalls. While working on.. the screen ings last Saturday mornin.g,. Sai .gon slipped and fell, but for tunately, his rider, Alwyn Eaves, escaped with a facial gravel rash. The horse suffered a severe shaking, but had no bones broken. His tra'ner, Charlie Shiel, can do nothing right just. now. On the mornings when the Rosehill course has been. closed, several of our local trainers have floated members of their team to Warwick Farm for a gallop, but last Thursday they fell into a trap. When they reached the bridge near the racecourse they found water flowing two feet deep over the decking and had to turn back without unload ng. And floating horses is a pretty costly business. After a brief, let-up, Red Loch is back in work at "The Hill," and i...

LAMB SPEAKS AT GUILDFORD [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 14 June 1950

LAMB SPEAKS AT GUILDFORD Speaking at Guildford, the Member for Granville, W. H. Lamb, M.L.A., said he could not understand the Liberal Party's misrepresentation of the Pre mier's promise in his 1947 policy speech to build 90.000 homes. Mr. Lamb said that Hansard No. 59, page 3420, recorded that: ::The exact text of the policy speech is-we undertake. to have built in this State in the next three years no less. than '90,000 modern high standard homes. These homes will be built by such instrumentalities as: "The Housing Commission, Co-operative Building Societies, Rural Bank, local Councils, pri vate enterprise, individual home builders." "In view of the above, why do Liberals still go on repeating their falsehoods?" asked Mr. Lamb. "In setting himself a target of 90,000 Mr. McGirr showed great courage. In completing .just over 83,000, he has justified his action, and every fair-mind ed elector will regard it' as an outstanding achievement." A. Court, Lacey Street, Merry lands, recentl...

CAMPBELL ON HOUSING MUDDLE [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 14 June 1950

CAMPBELL ON HOUSING MUDDLE Under Labour, N.S.W. had suffered muddling in housing, and the cornering of building materials preventing home build ers from building their own homes in anything like a rea sonable time, Alderman William Campbell said today. Alderman Campbell is the selected Liberal candidate for Granville in next Saturday's State elections, and has been Mayor of Holroyd for six years. Alderman Campbell attacked the Government for its failure to honor a promise that it would erect a maternity wing at Par ramatta District Hospital. "The Minister for Health (Mr. C. A. Kelly) told us that the foundation stone would be laid in August, 1946. "It is now June, 1950, and yet still no :maternity wing!" Alderman Campbell claimed this was a typical case of Gov ernment muddling, and appealed to voters to get results by re turning a Liberal Government next Saturday.

Last Stages Of Bowls Chamrpionsilips Charlie Mott reached the semi final of the Parramatta bowls championship last Saturday, when he dowr.ed Bob Teller after a very interesting game. Rain, late in the week, made the green heavy, but neveirtheless play was high-class. Again Mott got an early break on h s opponent and at the 11th end held an advantage of 14-5. When the 27th end had been concluded, Mott s lead had been reduced to three poir.,'s, 24-21, but, collecting a brace and a four to his credit, he increased the gap to 30-21.

DOUBT OVER DOUBLE DECKERS [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 14 June 1950

DOUBT OVER DOUBLE' DECKERS Certain streets in Parramatta   are unsuitable for double-decker bus services, unless the Transport Department helps to maintain the road surfaces, the City Coun- cil thinks. The Department has asked Council for its opinion on a pro- posal by local bus operator, Mr. G. R. Sinclair, to use the buses on several routes in the area. Council considers that Fitz- william, Wentworth, Pennant, Villiers and Market Streets are   inadequate for double-decker buses, unless adequate assistance is given by the Department for their maintenance. George Street, according to Council, is also unsuitable for the buses, because of the heavy crown on certain sections of the road. Otherwise, Council raises no objection, for the introduction of the services, it is stated.
