HOME to DIXIE Mr. Beck was driven beyond endurance by a minx of a kitten which had no respect for an earnest gardener's efforts. But he found its absence was even worse than its presence. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

HOME t« DIXIE A SHORT STORY BY RUTH PARR ILLUSTRATED BY THORA Mr. Beck was driven beyond endurance by a minx of a kitten which had no respect for an earnest gardener's efforts. But he found its absence wat even worse than its presence. "IT'S a poor, harmless little -*? thing," said his wife. " 'Taint!" " 'Tis!" " 'Taint!" " 'Tis!" "Gah!" Mr. Charlie Beck dug in his garden. The sun slanted hotly between the orange trees, upon the furrows of black sod, and the lily bulbs which lay in a pallid heap ready to be sown Mr. Charlie Beck had a freckled head which had seen a lot of wear, and a boot scored across the sole with, constant digging. From time to time he looked up to mop his brow, and to cast a com- radely glance at Monty, the fat old retriever who lolled apoplectically under the trees. They had been friends for a long time, and Mr. Beck fell it was his right and privilege to see that Monty was not bothered by the bloomin' minx on this hot afternoon. T^HERE she came, stepping * fea...

NO "TEETH" IN PACT Diplomats' Fears STAFF CORRESPONDENT AND A.A.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

NO "TEETH" IN PACT ? Diplomats' Fears | STAFF CORRESPONDENT " % AND A.A.P. WASHINGTON, Feb. 5. The "teeth" had been taken out of the proposed Atlantic Pact, U.S. diplomatic officials said to day. The Atlantic Pact, which ob- servers expect to be signed in a few weeks, will be an alliance linking the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, and possibly other countries of West-1 ern Europe. Under the pact, aggression against one member will, automa- tically involve all members. . But whcieas an early draft pro- posed armed intervention by all , against the aggressor, this has been altered to allow simply .dip- lomatic or economic action against the aggressor. Diplomats expect the terms of the pact to be published in about 10 days. A delegation from Norway is going to Washington to-day to examine the obligations Norway would assume if she joined the pact. [U.S. bases in Britain, p. 7; Norwegian attitude, p. 9.]

Prices Min- ister, Mr. Frank Finnan, last night said that all States would cut retail profit margins on furniture by , five per cent, from March 1. | This wouid mean a drop in all retail furniture prices from that date, he said. The cut would apply to all household and office furniture. Mr. Finnan said State Prices Ministers at their Sydney .con- ference last Friday agreed to cut the retail margin from 474 per cent, to 42i per cent.

CONTROLS TO STAY I Mr. Finnan said the Prices Ministers had rejected applications to lift the price .controls on furniture, floor coverings, crock- ery, new motor cars, and many grocery lines. ) "Many retailers have taken ad- vantage of previous lifting of price controls to increase-prices unreasonably," he added. Mr. Finnan said he would ask the Prime Minister, Mr. Chifley, this week for more Common- wealth help in preventing...

Horse Stall Move [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Horse Stall Move Most of the horse stalls at Rosehill yesterday were closed to the public. S.T.C. secretary, Mr. L. V. Lâchai, said this had been done because of the congestion around the stalls. "It seemed inevitable that sooner or later some members of the public would be injured by fractious horses parading near the stalls," he said. Oniy owners, trainers, and attendants were allowed in the stall enclosure. Secretary of the Owners and Trainers' Association, Neil Mc Kenna, said the enclosing of the stalls would be welcomed by his association. "There was always an clement of risk to the public while they had free access to the yard," he said. "Most.of the people had*no business to do there, and it made it difficult for attendants to do their work. "Attendants also were embar- rassed in keeping people away from their horses to comply with the anti-doping rules. "There should be no difficulty now in that regard." ROYAL LAD, the favourite, racing away from the Rosehill Handicap field ...

ROSEHILL —RIGHT FOR DEED [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

ROSEHILL -RIGHT FOR DEED Backed by his<stable on the knowledge that he was partial to Rosehill, Deed justified confidence when I he won the Welter Handi- cap yesterday, in winning, Deed turned the tables on Burnley, who had beaten him in the Randwick Phillip Handicap the previous Monday. July Win Owner. Mr. I. Silk, and trainer, G. P. Nailon, got their first evidence of Deed's liking for Rosehill when he won a welter last July. Before that he had been an ex- pensive failure at Grafton, where the stable had rated his chances highly in the Grafton Cup. In view of that form his con- nections did not Mipport him heavily at Rosehill, but he fin- ished brilliantly to beatTamasha. "We gave Deed a couple of preparatory runs in sprints, and thought he was a good thing for the Phillip Handicap last Mon- day," Nailon said after yester- day's race. "But, allhough he was as fit as hands could make him, he didn't handle Randwick as well as he did Rosehill to-day. Better Terms Stable an...

TRAVELLED 20,000 MILES [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

TRAVELLED 20,000 MILES 1 He has travelled 20,000 vertical miles in his 40 years' association with lifts. He has never been trapped in a lift. [Last Wednesday, a lift con- taining 15 girls and a lift-driver, fell from the fourth floor to the basement of the Bank of New I _ South Wales Chambers, Pitt Street, city. Five girls were taken to Sydney Hospital for treatment.] Mr. Shuttleworth said lifts never crash or get out of control. He said: "They don't crash be- cause automatic brakes are ap- plied as soon as a lift's speed exceeds its rated safe speed by 10 per cent. "These brakes will stop a fast lift-and that's one travelling at 600ft a minute-in six feet. "If they should fail, hydraulic buffers in the lift-well will take up any shock of impact. "The liftman has an emergency switch that will stop the lift if his other control doesn't work, so, you see, a lift is never really out of control. SHOCKED BY BLOOD "People are seldom injured in a lift mishap. "Take that incident when five ...

¡£ Boy Rider Catches Fielders Off Guard j £80,000 PAY-OUT OVER ROYAL LAD WIN 1 . _ Backed At False Odds By JOHN SCHOFIELD Pjalse odds laid because Royal Lad was to be ridden\ by a raw apprentice cost bookmakers an £80,000^ pay-out over the Rosehill Handicap yesterday. Royal Lad was the logical favourite for the race, but when apprentice Jim Campbell, who had never ridden a winner! was posted as rider, bookmakers quoted-4-1. Big punters snapped up the price, the public followed, and Camp- bell did his part by bouncing Royal Lad out and leading all the way. Rails bookmaker Ken Rang- er laid Royal Lad for a total payout of £13,000. "Punters were in betting mood, ind I took the risk solely because ] doubted that Campbell could jide his first winner in a race over 10 furlongs," Ranger said. "Such races require more judg- ment than you expect to find in such an inexperienced rider. "But Campbell dub his work like a veteran; I won't take him lightly next time.
