University players are now in camp, and it is trusted opportunities will be afforded them of completing their schedule,, otherwise it is good-bye to the pennant.

Clark, one of their re presentatives and honorary secretary of the Sydney Club, for expert advice.

FISHING NOTES sport for Week-end By PISCATOR. High-water at Sydney to-day at 6.50 ajn. and 7.10 p.m.; to-morrow at 7.30 ajn. and 7.50 p.m. Good news comes from Woy Woy. Black bream are well up into Brisbane Water, and may be caught at the Rip and in all the deep holes. They are a fresh lot of school fish in from the sea, and they do not know much about lines, so they are easy to catch. Prawns and worms as bait will eive the best sport. The fish are ravenous for food at present. Black fish are also plentiful along the rocky shores. George's River is still providing bream to men who fish fine and use Japanese gut and a good berley. Sans Soaci should be worth visiting, also Salt Pan. Night fishermen may expect to get fish at the Bridge at high-water. Port Hacking is not as good as might have been expected. After the upper part of the port gets muddied bream will be caught in the deep water stretches. Black-fish may be caught from most of the rocky shores with rods. The Hawkesbury is in...

THE TOTE EXPENDITURE OF REVENUE FROM ITS USE SOLDIERS AND THEIR DEPENDENTS CONCERNED. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
THE TOTE EXPENDITURE OF REVENUE FROM ITS USE SOLDIERS AND THEIR DEPENDENTS CONCERNED. By PILOT. In England the controversy as to the merits and demerits of the totalisator is still raging, «nd though there is little probability of the in stallation of the machine on racecourses of | the Old Country during the continuance of the 1 war. that may come about later. English | cwners furnish a large percentage of the money for which they race, and it is evidently dawn ing on them that it is about time they shared in the huge sums contributed by the public towards the upkeep of the sport. In Australia 1I1- nnittinn ii hetter for owners but it i?- I prcbnble that in New South Wales it could I be further improved by the introduction of the totalizator. There is also another reason entitling the legalisation of the totalisator to more serious consideration on the part of our Parliament than in the past. In the way of incapacitated icldiers. widows, and fatherless children, this State will fee...

KITCHENER [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
KITCHENER Never a granite column nor marble of purest white Shall marl: the place where her hero fell on England's dark, dark night. Never « flower shall blossom, nor (Tver the kindly turf Shall sprout with the promise of Spring's young jiwpc, uierc in inc raging Biin. hever a shroud shall enwrap him, nor ever a winding-sheet. But the velvet waves of God's own sea, with their scent of Cod's own tilett. Never e Church or Abbey, nor :m a pilgrim's cross. Shall mark the place where the greatest land suffered her greatest loss. Never was ouch a moment, nor ever was such ;?. pall, As. the foam-flecked sets that England guards in a sacred trust for all. Never a stone to mark the place, nor a belfry to toll his knell; Safe in the core of the sea he rests, - like the land he served so well. Never, whilst Britain endures as Queen of the far-flung wave, Shafl her thanks e'er cease to the mighty man who sleeps in that limitless grave. — By Dick Richard In Sporting Times.

GENERAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
GENERAL NOTES. Record breaking on the road in Tasmania is likely to be off in the future. Syd. Stearns, who recently broke the Launceston-Hobart re cord, was fined twice over. He was fined for exceeding the speed limit in Hobart, and also in Launceston. The record, 'tis said, cost hhn flO/16'. Nj wonder there are no more aspi rants for record breaking fame in Tassy. The Cumberiar-d Club committee will meet shortly and arrange the first of the series of enmnetitions for the ensuintr vear. In the. official list ot world's records for the various types of machines, motor boats, etc, issued by' the Club Journal of the Automobile Club of America, the highest rates are given as 101) m.pji. for the motor cycle, as against 140 for the car and 120 for the aeroplane. This table, however, does not give the motor cycle due justice. The speed given is the official rate made by Lee Humiston on an Excelsior, but the unofficial record is a mile in 26sec, by Glenn Curtis on his eight-cylinder freak,...

MELBOURNE MOVIES [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
MELBOURNE MOVIES Tennessee's Pardncr, a Lasky production, suggested by Bret Hartc's tamous story, is sure to prove popular with audiences at the Para mount Theatre. The setting is that of the far Wc-i in the days of the old 'Forty-niners. Fannic Ward cnactr, the part of Tennessee finely, .ind the per formance of Jack Dean (Miss Ward's new husband) deserves praiic. Raymond Hatton, a fine character actor, figures in the cast as Ge williker Hay. Another Paramount feature is The Secret Sin. a five-part Lasky photodrama. in which Blanch Sweet assumes the difficulties of a dual role. She appears as twin sisters in this play, which derives its title from the theme of the story, said theme being probably the most se vere arraignment against the drug habit ever presented on the screen. There are some most excitinz scenes taken in Chinatown opium dens. Miss Sweet is supported by a splendid cast, which includes Thomas Meighan and Sessuc Hayakawr..
