MOTOR CYCLING STRENUOUS 24 HOURS' TRIAL: 25 COMPETITORS FINISH [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
MOTOR CYCLING STRENUOUS 24 HOURS' TRIAL: 25 COMPETITORS FINISH , By BEDE CARROLL. The first 24-hours1 reliability trial of the Victorian Motor Cycle Club, which finished at 9 o'clock on Saturday night last, was a great success, and it is extremely probable that it will be made an annual affair. A very line field — 45 — for these times contested the trial, which proved a strenuous affair, only 10 competitors getting through without loss of points, while six others finished on time, but lost points. Nine others finished late. Twenty-four, over 50 per cent, of the com petitors, did not complete the run. Two of the competitors — J. Doudney and C. S. Simmons — had nasty falls. The former, through misjudging a corner, owing to the failure of his lights, came a terrible cropper, and dislocated his left shoulder. Assisted by a fellow-competitor, Doudney remounted, and hastened to Tcrang, where he had the shoul der set. He then mounted his machine and rode the 137 miles into Melbourne, with ...

CUMBERLANDERS [?] CONTINUE. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
CUMBERLANDER2 *O CONTINUE. At the annual meeting of the Cumberland Club it was decided to adhere to the policy adopted during the year just closed, and run a reduced programme of events during the en suing year. A programme will re drawn up, and the opening event — three weeks hence — will be something in the speed line. Practically the whole of the old officials were re-elected. There is one important change, however, for Fred Jenkins has replaced the energetic W. B. Pynor as honorary secretary. This was done at the outgoing official's request, for popular 'Bill,' who has done so much for the sport, would never have been deposed. Mr. Pynor is likely to leave the district shortly, hence his retirement. He will continue to push the club along, for he has accepted the position of Press representative, and he :s the right man in the right place here. Fred Jenkins, the new hon. sec. of the club, is the holder of the club championship up to 600 c.c, and will prove a worthy successor to M...

THE LATEST AMERICAN TEAM I George Chip's Career: His Power of Punch: About the Other Men Like the American team that arrived a little | more than a month ago, George Clip, Me- j Mahon, Picato, Brannigan, and Joe Chip, with 1 manager Jimmy Dime, were unarmed with pass ports, and were consequently detained by the ' military authorities some consrderable time be- | fore their clearance was obtained. George Chip will celebrate the 28th anniver sary of his birthday next Friday.

FRANK THORN v. JIMMY HILL For Australian Featherweight Supremacy at Brisbane [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 19 August 1916
FRANK .THORN v. JIMMY HILL For Australian Featherweight Supremacy at Brisbane Another Australian championship will be de cided to-night at Brisbane, when Jimmy .Hill has to defend his featherweight championship against time-honored Frank Thorn. Though the' Queenslander has a win to his credit over Hill, and recently ? scored a- knockout victory over Geikie, by . which he won the feather weight championship of Queensland, I believe that if the present champion prove to be as well as he was when he met Spargo in Sydney, on July 1, that, like Holland; he will still re main on top; Though Thorn showed sufficient power in his punch to put a tough boy like Geikie down for the count, reading between the lines written by that capable judge, Mr. H. I Perry, our Brisbane correspondent. I fancy that I inexperience alone prevented Geikie from re versing the order of things. In short, I im convinced that the once great triple title-holder ! —feather, light and welter— is 'all in,'and will I be b...
