MIND-READING TRICK [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949
MIND-READING TRICK By "MERLIN" HERE is a first-rate "mind reading" trick. You will need only a pencil, a pile of paper strips about the size of playing cards, and a hat. HOW IT LOOKS: Five or six of the paper strips are handed to the magician. He takes up a pen- cil and writes down the names of persons called out to him. Thus: "Joan, Mary,_Dick, George" -one name to each strip. He then folds the strips and drops thern into the hat. When the strips are thoroughly mixed together a bystander is asked to take one out and read it. "I will concentrate my mind on yours and tell you the name," de- clares the performer. . , Sure enough, after «a short pause he announces: "The name is Joan"-which proves to be correct. THE SECRET: As the names are called out to you write "Joan" on the first slip (or whatever the name may be). On the second slip repeat loudly and clearly the name called, whether it be Tom, Dick or Harry, but still write "Joan." Each slip is folded immediately and dropped into t...

At her home at Bonbeach, near Melbourne, where she is living with her Australian husband and her eight Indonesian children, she said: "We have resigned ourselves to leaving Australia, but we don't know where we are going.

GOOD LENGTH WILL FORCE ERRORS Here is the third article iu the series hy famous Test bowler. W. J. O'Reilly. He discusses and ex- plains good length, and advises junior bowlers. WHEN I was a small boy I listened with bated breath to those who spoke of bowling in terms of good I length, bad length and incon- sistent length, but it took me quite a long time to discover for myself what was really meant by "length" in bowling. Strangely enough, my first real concept ol length came to me one j day as 1 was taking part in a game ot French cricket ' which was usualK ! played in the school weuthershed o n rain) summer divs I noticed that there was a certain posi , tion to which the j ball could be pitch I ed either fast or j slow where the I batsman standing i with hi-, bat held perpend ic ular in front of his two legs found it hard indeed to keep the 1 ball on the ground 1 and so avoid hitting up a catch. That unless the bats- man took special care he was al- most .certain to hit the ball ...

SULTAN WILL EXPEL AUSTRALIANS -», Ö'Keefe Case Move SINGAPORE, Feb. 5 (A.A.P.-Reuter). -All Australians in West Borneo will be expelled if an Indonesian woman, Mrs. Annie O'Keefe, is expelled from Aus tralia. Sultan Hamid II, head of the Federal State of West Borneo, said this in a state- ment issued to-day by the Dutch Informa- tion Service in Singapore. Sultan Hamid said he hoped other Indonesian States would follow his example, according to the information service. Singapore newspapers presented the ^Sultan's statement on then front pages to-day, but the British owned, independent conservative "Free Press" went a step further. It flayed the Australian Minis- ter for Immigration, Mr. Calwell, terming him "bone-headed," a "bungler," and a "misfit." Under the headline "Bone heads" the "Free Press" says: "Few men in public office have ever discharged their responsibili- ties in such a bungling fashion as Mr. Calwell. "Seldom has a Government, whose declared policy is to seek the frie...

Association of Ghange Ringers held its annual competitions. Teams from seven city and suburban churches com- peted. Each team took its turn in the tower. The ringers stood in a circle of six or eight, with set faces, and arms moving in rhythm to the call of "Single" or "Bobs" from their leaders. One of the ringers, Ross Alters, 13, of Randwick, had to stand on a raised platform to handle the bell-rope. Also ringing was grey-haired Mr. Charles Parr, of Hornsby, who constructed the hickory bell wheels at St. Jude's about- 30 years ago. Mr. Phil Cooper came from Adelaide to assist in the judging. The secretary Of the associ - ation, Mr. W. M. Rowe, said "No Bellringers at St Jude's Church, j Randwick, yesterday. other association outside the British Isles conducts a competi- tion as we do.

Many Want Mosquito-hating Fish By A Staff Reporter [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949
Many Want Mosquito-hating Fish By A Staff Reporter Last week I wrote a story for the "Sunday Herald" about Mr. Bern Shelton, who breeds Gam busia affinis, a mosquito-killing fish, at the Newtown Cleansing Depot. [Mr. Shelton offered to give the fish to anyone requiring them for mosquito eradication.] This week, Mr. Shelton tele- phoned me: "In a couple of days I've filled nearly 100 jars. Some of the jars I could have put a shark in. "People are rolling in here as if it were a circus, especially small boys with notes from their mothers," he said. Mr. Shelton read one note: "Please give young Harold some ,fish. My husband bought some goldfish to kill the mosquito wrigglers, but the goldfish died. Now I'm going to have a go with some of yours." Mr. Shelton said he had had many requests for the fish by telephone and mail. . One woman from Tuncurry, on the North Coast, asked for a jar of the fish to be sent to her via train, coach, and horseback.

Trouble On Wharves; Communists Active [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949
Trouble On Wharves; ! Communists Active -» Shipowners fear further widespread trouble on the Sydney waterfront because of Communist activity. The Communists have held up the discharging of two oversea I ships. They are the Port Line [vessel. Port Fremantle, at No. 10 | Wharf. Pyrmont, and Birt and Company's Huntington at No. 3, Glebe. t In both cases the tally clerks were involved. Late on Friday afternoon, six clerks, who had been engaged through the roster system, for work on the Port Fremantle, de- manded that a well-known Com- munist should be made a head stacker in place of the regular head stacker, who was absent through illness. The head stacker is the clerk in charge of the job. The request was refused and the clerks walked off the job. This meant the dismissal of six gangs of wharf labourers, totalling 144 men. i The ship is now tied up. She was discharging general cargo from the United Kingdom when the stoppage occurred. She can- not be unloaded now until the clerks offer ...
