ALLEGED OLD-TIMERS AT MANLY. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
ALLEGED OLD-TIMERS AT MANLY. The success of Joe Morgan, Charlie Bell, and O.sic Merrett for the old-timers at Manly last week in the charity match suggests the possibility of some of these alleged old men being called upon to help the young boys at the village along now and again. There is a useful reserve force among these past mem bers, although the hairs of the head are less numerous and there is just the suspicion of a development round the waistband.
RECORD MEETING AT VIC. PARK RACING IN THE DARK. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
RECORD MEETING AT VIC. PARK RACING IN THE DARK. At the Victoria Park Meeting on Wednes day, several records were broken, one being the number of races held. Before the pro gramme was dispensed with 15 races had been run, which is easily the greatest number ever held at Victoria Park on one afternoon. Rac ing commenced at 1 pan. and concluded at 6 p.m. The second division, of the Fourtcen-Two was run in semi-darkness, and it was impos sible to see what was in front until the horses were opposite the stands. The racing should nave occn siarxca earner, u a smasu iiuu in curred in the last race, what a cry would have been raised by that section of the public which is always up against sport ! Those in charge were apparently of the opinion that a few of the races which were run in divisions would have been run in one. That probably accounted for miscalculating the time. The Tuck demonstrated what a good horse he was by winning the Flying Handicap under the steadier of 9.7 from Steel On a...
PLAYERS RETURN TO THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
PLAYERS RETURN TO THE GAME. Henderson, the miniature half-back of th~ Glcbe-njln.ain aide, showed that he can still feed cleanly and ;.Wy from the scrum as he did in '.he periou .-iround about 1908 and 190$. j Absence from the came has meant losi of his cunning, for I-e was always prominent. The spectators found the nickname of 'jockey' fit his o.iic so well that he was called nn»hin~ clue after the fi/M few minute, of the game. The return of Morecombe and Holdsworth to the qamc will fcreatly strengthen Newtown in the forwards. Both these cx-Eastcrn Sub urbs phyers showed good form last week, and should do even better to-day. 'Jumbo,' as Holdsworth is known, is bigger than last year, and when matters are normal again loots the type for the second row of the big teams. Morecombe showed all liis old dash at break away. Both the teams in the big game last Satur day played their back team in the manner siiKnestcd in thi3 column. Nutte at five eight for Y.M.'s, and Smith at five-eight fo...

STORIES OF AN OLD CHAMPION SIX DAYS' RACE IN AUSTRALIA ON THE ORDINARY [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
STORIES OF AN OLD CHAMPION SIX DAYS' RACE IN AUSTRALIA ON THE ORDINARY By PACEMAKER. Memories of an almost forgotten page of Australian cycling history were revived by meeting in Sydney recently Mr. Sam Clark, who nearly 30 years ago won the first Six Days' Race ever held in Australia, and had a highly creditable International career en th« old ordinary bicycles. Mr. Clark, although just 50 years of age. Is a wonderful testimony to the benefits of cycling, for b.e still rides, and excepting for the white hair with which his head is thickly covered, and moustache, would easily pass for 10 or 12 years younger. He has not raced since 1591, but uses his bicycle for riding to his business at Lismore. N.S.W., and says he still feels fit for a few steady miles. And he certainly looks it. Mr Clark came to Australia as one of a party of athletic stars of the first magnitude in 1887. The names of others of the party were Fred Wood and Bob James, Eneiish champions; Fred Rollinson. American cha...
ATHLETICS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
ATHLETICS By ARGUS. Members of the N.S.W.A.A.A. should not overlook the fact that entries for the various events set apart for them on the programme of the Eight-Hour Day Sports, to be held on the Agricultural Ground on October 2, close on September 2. The events comprise : — 120 yards, 440 yards, 1 mile, 1 mile walk, 120 yards hurdles, and running high jump (all handi caps), and an 880 yards Allies' Relay Race Handicap. Prizes of good value are being offered. Several events for members of the Botany Harriers arc to be decided at the Gaelic So ciety's gathering, at the Sir Joseph Bank's ground, Botany, on September 2. With the School Sports close at hand, a start has been made by some of the schools in getting their track teams in order. During the wrek the S.C.E.G. School set the ball rolling with the younger boys, the seniors being mostly in camp at the Showground. To-day the St. Ignatius College boys open the cam paign, their sports master. Rev. J.

TOTALISATOR IN ENGLAND AGITATION KEPT ALIVE : A TRAINER'S OBJECTION [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
TOT ALIS ATOR IN ENGLAND t ? ? AGITATION KEPT ALIVE: A TRAINER'S OBJECTION The agitation in favor of introducing the Totalisator on English racecourses is not being allowed to die, but on the contrary has been kept very much alive in some of the sporting papers, says the Otago (N.Z.) Wit ness. It is, however, generally recognised that _the_prcsent_is_npt Jhj_j^^t^pportuy_time_to_ get it established. There is no great desire to have it legalised in the immediate future, but the way is being paved to get it established at the conclusion of the war. The- enormous ex penditure necessary to horse the army after the outbreak of war made it obvious that more at tention must be paid to the breeding of horses suitable. for military purposes, and the Totali sator, it is freely recognised, would render valuable assistance in that direction. Part of the revenue from the Totalisator would go to wards the encouragement of breeding, provide contributions to charities, and also towards the increase...
THE TERRIERS' KEENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
THE TERRIERS' KEENNESS. i Here are few, it any, Keener clubs than the Y.M.C.A. side of this year. Most of the players are on the ground stripped ready for the fray at 2 o'clock, and some try to _et games with seconds or thirds, or in any other of the early matches. One room in the dressing enclosure has almost become theirs under the occupation clause. To-day, with B and C Grade haying names in the kneck-out competitions there I* sure to be a blj muster of the Terriers for the opening came. Keenness of this sort is sure to lead 3omewhcre. It is f,ie nrst essential to success, and when the war is over one hopes to see the Y.M.s secure that recognition which is so strongly desired— admission to the first grade competition.
'VARSITY EX-CAPTAIN STILL KEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
'VARSITY EX-CAPTAIN STILL KEEN. Dr. B. M. Beith strolled down to the Gram mar School ground last Saturday looking for a gam:. The 'Varsity full-back now wears the uniform of captain in the A.I.F., but a couple of weeks' absence from the game made him give way to the inclination to once again pack his bas and look around. He was wirmly taken in by the Newtown side, who wanted a back to complete a homogeneous collection which com prised players from most of the districts. For the first half 'Jackie' went well, but after that the ball bounced far too often, and he showed that there was some running condition wanted. It is good to see the 'Varsity captain so keen on the fixtures, and one hopes to see him often in the last line for one or other of the clubs.
THE BUSY "BUS." [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
THE BUSY 'B'S.' The B's. comprising the hve teamr. men tioned above, will play their initial bouts at 2.25 p.m. The Y.M.'a »nd St. John's jointly hold the honors of champions in this grads, for on July 1, in the contest for B Grade, these two fifteen played a drawn game, and even though extra time had been played, no decision could be arrived at. Thus the struggle this time looks like being Rood and even. ' Semi-finals in both grades will be played at , 2.50 p.m., leaving the finals for the following Saturday. j Referee R. C. Brown will have charee of I No. 1 Ground for all games, Dr. G. H. McEl- j hone will referee the No. 3 Ground fixtures, and C. A. McCarthy will officiate in No. 2 | Ground games. The appointments should . satisfy the keenest of the teams engaged.
RUGBY UNION FULL PROGRAMME TO-DAY: B AND C GRADE KNOCKOUT PRELIMINARIES [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
RUGBY UNION FULL PROGRAMME TODAY: B AND C GRADE KNOCK OUT PRELIMINARIES By THE WINGER. A full programme will occupy the attention j of the Rugby Union clubs this afternoon. With the exception of the re-union anil sports nice'. ing which is to come a week later, to-day's programme ranks as the busiest of the second part of the ceason. Besides the ordinary series of games, including some choice tit-bits, there will be preliminary work In connection with the re-union, in order that the programme to be decided may be disposed of. All the first round and semi-final games in the B and C Grades will be played, leaving only the finals in each Grade and the sport programme to be held in conjunction with the A Grade events en September 2. As usual the Grammar School Ground will provide the deciding place for the main game. The three grounds will be kept going from 2 p.m. until 5.30 or later. The C Grade clubs — many of them mere boys and new to Rugby gatherings — will open the afternoon with ...
ENLISTMENTS AFFECT SIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
ENLISTMENTS AFFECT SIDES. Both the leaders, like the other M.R.U. clubs, h3ve had to vary their Jifteens sp much during the year that forty odd players have figured in the sanies. The Shoremen, however, taken right through the season, have not been such good performers in attack as Larry Wogan's men, although they have risen to great deeds now and again, notably at Manly and also :n the first knockout competition. In H/.f-m-- then have hr-n iust na sound, and the forwards have been more versatile and succcsu full all round. With Glebc-Balmain vanguard in ! full strength and in good condition there would be a mighty struggle. That end has not yet been attained. The alteration of the teams through enlistments and mobilisation has had its effect throughout, and will also be notice able to-day. Other games at the 'Grammar' include Y.M.C.A. against A.M.C. and Newtown V.A.S.C. The Terriers should have no diffi culty in winning the first The Army Service, however, may give Newtown some tro...
TWO LEADING TEAMS IN ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
TWO LEADING TEAMS IN ACTION. After their contests are over the Bs and Cs will be afforded an opportunity of watch ing v/hat should be a crackajack game between Glcbe-Balmain (one defeat, one drawn game) and North Sydney-Mosman (two defeats and one drawn game). It is the clashing of the leaders in this non competition year. The sides have met twice before and honors arc -r.sv. The former caueht the Shoremen early (the very first game of the year) and won easily. The tables were turned a few weeks later at Mcsman Oval, the locals having in the meantime svorked into a fine side, and Glcbe-Balmain being short, on the day, many regular players. Thus it is the rubber to-day. It is more than that, for with no competition arranged and no regular series of games drawn in competition style it is only a matter of specu lation among the teams themselves as to the one with the best record for the year. Defeats suffered and set against a team seem to be the easiest way of reckoning, an.d as may b...
DIVISIONS PROBABLE AT ROSEHILL COMPLICATED STYLE. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
DIVISIONS PROBABLE AT ROSEHILL COMPLICATED STYLE. Divisions look a certainty at Rosehill this afternoon in the Maiden, and also perhaps in the Durtdas Handicap, but the chances are the scratchings in the latter race will be rather numerous.. The horse clubs continue to divide the races in the complicated style of odd and even numbers. wny mey do not split tne race in two line the pony clubs do when divisions are necessary is a mystery. It is fair to all, and is much easier | for everybody, as with the odds and even sys tem the public do not know, without a lot of trouble, what is running in one heat or the other, and in most cases their books are hope lessly muddled up. I believe the objection to this proposal is that trainers would have diffi culty in getting riders for the second division. Could .not the weights for that race be raised 71b ? The other day a deputation asked the trus tees of the Caulfield .Racecourse to grant as a site for a technical school the portion of the rese...
THE MAITLAND CUP THIS AFTERNOON GOOD FIELDS LIKELY. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
THE MAITLAND CUP THIS AFTERNOON GOOD FIELDS LIKELY. The Maitland Jockey Club will hold their Cup meeting. this afternoon, and, from the ap pearance of the entry lists, they are going to have a great meeting. It is no use denying that the railway line to Rutherford has been the makings of that course, and the chances are the crowd will be a record this afternoon. The Cup promises to be an interesting race, and several metropolitan performers will be amongst the starters. The New Zealand marc Bee is not to make the triD. but that i» hardlv to be wondered at. considering the weight she was given, although the handicapper could scarcely give her less. She is a great little mare, and the lightest-legged mare I think I have ever seen. Flash of Steel is not at his best yet, and consequently he will be an absentee, hut I should say o!d OJTa will take a deal of beating, notwithstanding his 9.5. He may be c-]ual to accounting for Scoutmaster, as he re cently gave the latter 2Ib and a beating ...
ARGUMENT OF JUNIORS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
ARGUMENT OF JUNIORS Robert E. Savage, hon. secretary of the Bal main District Junior League, writes : 'Having seen Mr. H. E. Freeman's record of Glebe Juniors, in last week'n Arrow, and his remark that their record b equal, if not .better, than that of Balmain Fitzroys, I cannot say I concur with his opinion, for the following rea sons : In 1913 (the year Fitzroys first started to. play JRugby League), Fitzroys defeated twice ] in the same season, a team called St. Ita's, from ' Glebe, but then playing in the Balmain Dis trict Junior League competition. Seeing that Glebe Juniors formed in 1914. practically from St. Ita's, whom Fitzroy defeated in 1913. I . fail to see were there is any comparison be tween the two teams. Then again/ Glebe Juniors in 1914 (their first year) entered the C ? Grade competition, whilst the first year Fitz , roy were in B Grade. The highest grade Glebe Juniors have attained in junior football is B Grade. Balmain Fitzrov played A Grade in 1915. I may also m...
