From Paddock to Punter [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 21 June 1950

By Harry Quigley. If, when making - alterations at Rosehill, the S.T.C. had laid down a cinder track instead of a metal one they would have conferred a boon on local trainers. As far as possible these men avoid the metal, which, they say, is fraught with danger for their horses. But as the course proper is freqfiently closed nowadays they are forced to take a risk. Cinders at Fosehill would have saved Maurie Anderson many pounds in recent weeks. Of nine horses floated to Warwick Farm on Thursday last for gallops or. the cinders, six were from Anderson's establishment. At 30/ per horse, the trip cost £9. It was the intention of some Rosehill trainers to visit "The Farm" on Saturday, but flood water was so high at Ireland's Bridge; near the course, that it was impossible for floats to get through. I" -+ + Every trainer in the metro politan area .has good reason to curse the rain, but if one more than another at Rosehill is hard hit it is Bill Degnan, who came here some mlonths ago fro...

Council Criticism Of Homes Lag Stirs Hous'zng Commission Following criticism by Hol royd Council of a Housing Commission project in Camp bell Place, Merrylands, the Commission has assured aider men that construction will be stepped up. Council, recently accused *the Commission of denying local builders supplies of scarce building materials by tying-up bricks, timber, and other ma terials at the project.

Children had made "play cen tres" of the skeleton homes, it was stated The Conimission told Council, last week, that "every" effort was being made to. help its contrac tors complete building projects. More cottages were nearing. completion at the Campbell Place centre, it was contended.
