WATERLOO CUP TO BE RUN AT LANGHORNE'S CREEK Derby and Oaks at Plympton ST. LEGER AT MURRAY BRIDGE POOR APPLICATIONS FOR COURSING DATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

m m §rm m m m m mmrnmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmam mmumm WATERLOO CUP TO BE RUN AT LANGHORNE'S CREEK Derby and Oaks at Plympton ST. LEGER AT MURRAY BRIDGE POOR APPLICATIONS FOR COURSING DATES. Last week the National Cours ing Club Committee allotted the 1 classics and the dates applied for by various clubs. A very poor response was made for the application of dates. Only 29 clubs had applied by March 1, and since then two more have come in. This only repi'esents about one-half of the clubs which usually hold meetings each year, and it is qujte apparent that many clubs who will later apply for dates have' not yet held their annual meetings.! All coursing men are delighted to see that our Waterloo Cup will still be run in the open, and not on an enclosure. The report in the daily ? papers last week states that the ? Waterloo Cup will be run by the ' South Australian Coursing Club at Langhorne's Cieek. This is precisely what will happen. , .The Langhorn&s Creek Club applied for the running...

HOW SHOCKING. Willie had tried by various means ... to interest his father in conversa tion. ' 'Can't you see I'm trying to,.., read?' said the exasperated parent. 'Now, don't bother me, Willie.' Willie was silent for almost a minute. Then he said : 'Awful accir . . aenL m me sun way xo-aay. Father looked up with interest.

LUCK OF THE GAME. BARGAIN MISSED WHEN NEOXENA WAS PASSED IN. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

LUCK OF THE GAME. BARGAIN MISSED WHEN * NEOXENA WAS PASSED IN. ^ Somebody missed a bargain when the filly by Drake from Larundal was submitted at the yearling sales last year. - A comparatively small amount would have been accepted for her, but there was not a bid. This probably was due to the fact that the filly is pigeon-toed. This is taken in most instances as a sign of * weakness in the joints, and it was *?' for that reason that, after she had ! been passed in at the sale two train ers .acting independently, refused to, , take a lease of her after having con sidered the matter for some itime.. They must be soiTy now. ,,,, j The filly was named Neoxena/ The deformity in her. feet has not ? affected her galloping ability-.

:: THE ASCOT CUP. 4 CHANCES OF STREPHON. In discussing horses of four years and' over that will be racing in Eng land this season, S. Wootton ex pressed -the opinion that Fairway i would be best. This idea is not j shared by all English racing men. i ' Some are strongly opposed to Fairway as a stayer, despite his St.] T.#--rpv anil .Tnrkev Cllnh Chin wins. In: a tetter to the London 'Sporting; Life,' a correspondent remarked that,' on;, breeding, Fairway was incapable' of winning the Ascot Cup unless the. raife jvere a walk-over or the others! fell; down. ?of- 1928, the cennections of the French horse, Palais Royal II., were: of Opinion that, with the going more, favorable, he would have beaten Fairway. ?

BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

BOTH SIDES * OF THE FENCE (By 'THE MAN ON TOP') %. I ii * No matter what trouble happens, or where it happens, or when it hap pens, if there is no constable on the spot, some malcontent will be al ways heard complaining that he is never there when wanted. These people seem to imagine that the man ! in blue should be able to materialise out of thin air at any time, in any place, under any circumstances, and at any moment. No one else is ever blamed for not possessing that mys-. terious faculty. Why, even a Prime Minister of Australia once went off pop because there was no policeman present when someone threw an; over-ripe egg, and he straightway ! fined the great Australian public £6,000 a year by creating a Com monwealth constabulary warranted to be at his beck and call whenever he wanted it. But people are never satisfied ; whether the policeman is there, or whether he is not there, he [Will be grumbled at just the same. A man before a Sydney Court the other day, charged with rioto...

MORE BRILLIANT THAN EVER. HONEST AMOUNTS [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

iMORE BRILLIANT THAN EVER. HONEST AMOUNIS When he won the Futurity Stakes and brought his stake winnings into closer line with those of the leading thoroughbreds of Australasia, Araou nis was accorded the finest reception seen for many years. Honest Amounis he has come to be termed. He has earned the comipli ment in every sense, for we have] seen no more consistently brilliant! thoroughbred. Rarely has he run a bad race — at least since his two year-old days, when he did not seem to strike his real form. He has won £36,703 in stakes. That is £6,396 behind Gloaming's record. Now the question arises whether the Magpie gelding can overtake Aus tralasia's wonder horse. Amounis is now in his seventh year, but he is as sound as the day he was foaled, j and those who have ridden him, and his trainer. (F. McGrath) hold the view that he is even more brilliant than ever. Certainly this looks to be the case, if his Futurity finish canj be taken (as ' any Vindication. Should A'mouriis win all t...

THE BOOK LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

THE BOOK LOVER A plan to give publicity to Austra lian books in Great Britain was de scribed by the president of the Aus tralian Literature Society (Dr. James Booth) at a meeting of the society in Melbourne. Dr. Booth's proposal is that an Australian ; author's week should be held in Great . Britain and Ireland in August, which is an important publishing month. .He suggested that the principal dis play of books by Australian authors should be at Australia House, and! . that other displays should be ar ranged in the larger towns. It was ; hoped that Australian residents then in England would lecture and broad cast addresses. Every Australian ; author who had published in Great Britain would be asked to endeavor : to have his book or books in the : booksellers' windows during the j week. Mr. W. D. Thorpe expressed his opposition to the suggestion that j there should be a heavy duty on I books, and said that such an altera . tioji in the tariff might react to the j disadvantage of the ...

EVAN MORGAN'S NEW POEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

EVAN MORGANS NEW POEMS.] BY WILFRID GIBSON. The City of Canals and Other Poems, by Evan Morgan. Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co. I am always inclined' to be dis trustful of a volume' of poems with a preface. _ I feel that any poems worth their salt should be able to speak for themselves directly to the reader without the intervention of aj prose introduction; and when the preface calls itself a 'Foreword' my suspicions are darker stillT so, in' order that I might come to them withj an unbiased mind and assess their, value without prejudice, I read the poems in Mr. Morgan's book before turning to the prose defence of his j practice. j I say 'defence' advisedly, because though a poet's preface may in inten tion be a challenge to his critics, for ail its air of defiance, it usually re solves itself into a defence, betray ing the writer's deep, though unac knowledged, self distrist; arid when I did read Mr. Morgan's preface I found it be no exception to the rule. Though he is i...
