UNIVERSITY WINS ON A MUD PATCH [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 28 June 1950

UNIVERSITY WINS ON. A MUQ PATCl University beat Parramatta last Saturday on the almost unplay. able Cumberland Oval by 13 points to 5. Nevertheless, at times some excellent football was witnessed and the handling by both full backs was good. The students scored early when international Blomley, playing his first game at five-eighth, cross kicked with judgment for his winger, P. Knibbs, to gather and score in the corner. The latter o?nverted his 'try with a really fine goal. From a ruck on Parramatta line, Brockhoff was awarded a try which was hotly disputed by the local players. Parramatta suffered a further set-back, however, when, due to a misunderstanding behind their goal line, Lennox was able to dive on. the ball and score, Knibbs again kicked the goal and the visitors led 13 points to nil, A try by Bruce and a goal by Irwin put them within striking distance, but the University de. fence held despite all efforts.

ROUNDABOUT [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 28 June 1950

ONE hundred and four teen years ago to-day, June 28, 1836, to be pre cise: "Snow fell several inches deep in Parramatta and also on the same day of the month in 1837". So says my copy of Ful ler's County of Cumber land Year Book (1886). C ITIZENRY of the Black town Shire are a trusting lot. They slip envelopes con'tain ing cash in payment of elec tricity accounts, under the door of Council office, after busi ness hours. Sometimes they don't even bother to do that-just leave the dough on the doorstep all night. Shire Clerk Pollack told me that, so far, nobody has at tempted a to ch, which is a great ad. for ?he Blacktownites. However, /the Council has. decided that the temptation of real money kicking arnoud- onI the footpath i~ay ; eday prove too great-for somebody;: so, from now on, the Council door will sport a locked letter box. ALL the better for being late than never, is this little sparkler from the polling booth at the Masonic Hall, West Ryde. Along comes a *very dear old lad...
