BOWLS GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
[?] &)WPCorbeif3 There was a time, a few years ago, when matches Parliament versus the Press were Piuch more frequent than they have been lat terly. A lapse ot many months occurred be tween the latest and the last previous inciting. During the present week bowlers drawn from the House and the fourth estate met in a two rink match as follows :— Cohen, McGowen, Colquhoun, Estcll (Parliament) v. Bull, Hop kins, Toy. and Cliarllon (Press) ; Page, Brunt nell, Robson Cann (Parliament), v. Yeldon, Corbctt, Martin, and Reay (Press), and victory rested with tht scribes. The Parliamentary green had not been played upon for quite a long while, but be yond that it was necessary to put a bit more ??wing into each delivery than might be re quired on a well used sward, owing to the grass being a trifle longer and thicker than is generally the case, not much fault could be found with the accuracy of the surface. It was too much to expect that a rink which included the tingle-handed champion...
NATIONAL LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
NATIONAL LEAGUE. The drawing card to-day will be the Peter sham-Wavcrley match at Marrickville Oval. There is some doubt as to whether Petersham's brilliant second bagman, Smijth, will play, as he has enlisted and is in camp. Otherwise, both teams will be fully represented. The winners are showing consistent form in striking, but it is in field work they shine. The programme committee met on Wednes day night, and made some alterations in the nxiutu. instead 01 Dcing at InamcJcvUIc Oval to-day, Mick Simmons v. Sydney will play at Leichhardt Canal late. Petersham and Petersham Jr. will fill the vacancy at Marrick ville, and Lrichhardt and Speedwells will play the early game at Leichhardt Canal. An p plication from the Leichhardt Club to have tne Petersham-Leichhatdt game played at Leich hardt Oval next Saturday was assented to. St. George and Blue Sox will consequently play at Marrickville.

LATE COURSING METROPOLITAN CLUB. The draw for this aftemoon'3 meeting at the Fifefield enclosure took place yesterday at Bateman's Hotel as follows : SATURDAY STAKES. Clorane v. Capital P. Mazeppa v. General Smuts, Spider Web v. Mount Joy, Malt Mark v. Jurassic^* -NARELLAN STAKES. Swankcr v. Wild Spinner, Dainty Queen v. T.C., Flying Haste v. State Express. CROYDON STAKES. Joyous Gift v.

In Sydney recently someone backed Lady Boniform for the Metropolitan at a long price. Well, if she has any chance of winning that with 7.5, she should make matters interesting in the Maitland Cup with 8.8, especially as she has already won twice at Rutherford at the same distance as this afternoon's race.

KRAMER DEFEATS AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 26 August 1916
KRAMER DEFEATS AUSTRALIANS. For many years now it has been predicted that 'next season So-and-so (.Clarke. Goallei, Spears, or Grenda) will hem Kramer for the American championship.' The rider mentioned as Kramer's most likely conqueror has been one of the Australian bunch which has done fo well in Yankecland. But Kramer comes along again, and stalls them off. Jacky Clnrk finished second to ihe wonderful Yankee sprinter -hrce times, v/hile Go'illet has done so twice, snd now it is the turn »f Boh Spears, the bril liant Sydney rider, to do so. This season the championship was decided hy a series of six races, the rider scoring most points in the lot to win. U'- to .Iulv 16 five racer, had been decided, and Kramer had woa the lot. On the dote in question he met Bob Spears in the final of the two miles, and the Sydney crack ?avc him nnc of the hirdcst races of his career.

NOTES. TI. E. Coleman known to his intimate friends (n the cvcling world as 'Foxy.' has. it is said, retired from racinc. Hr now scales over 13st. Coleman was a fine rider. M-hrt would have -made a name for himself with proper training. He could not spare the time from business to train properly, and yet he won a good many races. Cyclists will all extend the hand of sym pathy to Mr. Fred Lvons, the well-known Leazue official, whose eldest son has been killed in France. There was rather a unioue happening In con nection with the annual 20 miles championship of the Dulwich Hill Club held on Saturday last. The three brothers Little rilled the places, Mick scoring the victory from T. Little and J. Little. The winner is aptly named, for there Is not much of him. but he rides well. There were only half-a-doren competitors. Tom Tracey must have a list of fastest-time wins a yard long. He scored another on Satur dav in the Enfield-Burwood Club's eight miles, riding the course in the fairly ...

MARK MITCHELL COMPLAINS 'Whatever the initials of your contributor Tee Tee may denote, be sure it will nnt h» the Truth Teller, for hi, ima,nnaU?n is much more to be admired than his accuracy. It is extraordinary what a mountain of tafmdiddJes can be constructed from a pebble of fact. It is quite true that I once went round in 84. It was one of those red-letter days ?vhich has compensated for many months of earnest en deavor, bad luck. Sad lies, and hirt «!=,, i. may be also true tnat I may have broken the E°.t°i.n- V?iw occa?Ion«. but ihe handicapper, with his full experience ind tnowledge. may be trusted to be more correct in his judgment than a disgruntled golfer, who has failed to secure a ball from a seemingly easy victim.

SID SULLIVAN & WAVE GE/K/E Are to Meet at Brisbane To-night Sid Sullivan, the once great featherweight champion of Australia, and .the 9 stone ex crack of Queensland, Wave-Geikie, are to meet in their return. match at Brisbane to-night. As each man is said to be in very fine form, it is safe to predict that they will supply a great Tl-e pair met previously on January 2, 1015, when Geikie. after a bitter struggle had his man so far gone, that the referee called a halt in the 19th round. . On that occasion they met at the 9 stone limit but lo-night the weight is to be 9.2 or 9 4 a pourtdage that should suit the veteran nicely and if in condition he should see the full journey through.
