DURBANTRIP LIKELY FOR SWIMMERS Trauung Aid For Games [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

DURBANTRIP LIKELY FOR SWIMMERS Trauung Aid For Games Eight of Australia's swimmers are likely to have a three weeks trip to Durban in May before leaving for the Empire Games. Yesterday the secretary of the Australian Swimming Union, Mr. W. B. Phillips, received a letter from South Africa asking whether eight swimmers could be sent to Durban in that month. Four men and four women are sought. The Australians are want- ed to provide international competition in the huge ath- letic programme which is to be one of the attractions at Durban's Centenary Cele- brations. Mr. Phillips said yester- day that the swimmers would probably comprise sprinters, middle distance, backstroke and breaststroke representatives. "It will provide . them with excellent competition before the Empire Games," he said. "It will also give a lead on Australian standards as South Africa's swimmers are among the best in the world." The last time an Austra- lian team was in South Africa was in 1939, when Noel Ryan, Bo...

A Son Seeks Boxing History [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

A Son Seeks Boxing History FATHER: Frank Burns, former middle- weight champion of Australia will be in his son's corner at Sydney Stadium to-morrow night. A unique "like father like son" chapter could be added to boxing history to-morrow night when George Barnes makes his bid against Pran Mucus at Sydney Stadium to win the vacant Australian welter title. His father, who fought as Frank Burns, won the Aus- tralian middleweight champion- ship in 1921 when he knocked out Tommy Uren. At the Stadium to-morrow, Burns, now a burly, grey haired blacksmith with boxing etched all over his face, will be close to George's corner confident that his son will become the first offspring of an Australian champion, to emulate a > father's achieve- ment. \ Yet as proud as he is now of his son, Frank Burns recalls how he once ordered George to quit boxing. "I told him it was the hardest way there was to make a living but he took no notice of me and I couldn't keep him away from the game," said Burns...

Weigelas Are Still Firm Favourites [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Weigelas Are Still Firm Favourites WEIGELAS have been one of this spring- time's premier successes. Few other shrubs can combine beauty of foliage and flowers like this splen- did and hardy old-timer. That is one reason why it retains a warm spot in the heart of almost every gar denmaker. Weigela is botanically called Diervilla, but the re- tention of the older-day or "pet" name denotes a fond- ness which was founded in beauty, bounty and dainti- ness. They grow in almost any climate from tablelands to coast and they stand up to heat, dryness, frost and wind. Priming Big shrubs in a good soil, they should be well pruned back along the flowering stems immediately after blooming to preserve sym- metry and keep them within bounds. On sand, the cutting can be less severe. Of all varieties, soft pink D. Conquête is still the pick. 1 Its rosettes of rosy-pink bell . blossoms (they're really in the honeysuckle family) spread along the canes like little bouquets and are en- chanting. Their ...

Virtues And Vices Of Soil Conditioners GARDEN SECATION [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Virtues And Vices Of Sait tJ&nditi&ners THE TIME has come to report on soil conditioners, their virtues and vices, from a practical backyarder's point of view. That is the only real testing place. My findings follow a three months' experimental period. THIS double-barrelled word "soil conditioner" has come to stay. Products are now on the market which turn stiff clay sur- face soils into a crumbly state and keep them that . way. That, as every harassed cardencr knows, is a boon. ]n other days, unless we loaded our topsoil with humus and even mulched it caking and cracking fol- lowed heavy watering. It meant a recourse to the hoe and hand-fork between wet- tings otherwise subsequent water just ran off and was lost. , Now much of that work can be obviated. Two kinds of "conditioner" arc offering in krilium, a plastic or resin compound, and notai, a ter ric (iron to you) ammonia - composition which has proved itself over a J 0-year , period in Italy and Cali , fornia. ,...

Gladioli For Cool Country [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Gladioli For Cool Country GLADIOLI are now being planted in cool country and highland places for flowering at summer's end or in early autumn. Spread your plantings over several weeks to get a long season. Put in one batch now and two others at intervals of a fortnight. That way show and house flowers are spread out and with enough corms it is easier to have them at a fixed date. On the other hand, if gar- den display is the idea, several evenly sized corms of one variety should be planted together. A fertile deep, free soil; open sunlight and regular soakings (later some liquid feeding) .will build up big spikes. Corms are offering and I suggest a selection from these ? varieties:-Picardy, Spic and Span, Red Charm, Spotlight, Snow Princess, Rialgar, Algonquin, Blue Beauty, Leading Lady, Fire- brand, Oriental Pearl. White Gold, and, if you can get them, Ethel Cave Cole and Rosea. Many others are equally good, but this gives a splendid colour range. Plant small corms 2-3 inches; larg...

CITY MEN DOMINATE STATE BOWLS [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

CITY MEN DOMINATE STATE BOWLS* jyjETROPOLTTAN players again domin- ate the two State sides chosen for Brisbane and Melbourne next month. There are 19 metro- politan and 13 country players iii the chosen 32. The 16 against Queens- land appear to be stronger than those to meet Victoria. It was thought that selec- tion of the latter side would have ' been deferred until after to-day's "trial" match at Camden. The side to meet Queens- land has three metropolitan and one country captains, while the team to play Vic- toria will have three coun- try and one metropolitan captains. Those in charge of a State four for the first time will be Neville Green (City) and Bob Hudspeth (North Sydney). Green captained the Aus- tralian champion four to victory last May and will have with him his leader and third. Hudspeth was captain of a four in the State champion Pennant side last season. He first won his State "blue" in 1947^48. There will be mixed feel- ings about Hugh Smith's selection for the fir...

Weather And Track Hinder Star Athletes [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Weather And Track Hinder Star Athletes By JOHN TRELOAR Except for excellent half-miles by, Jim Bailey <St. George) and Bill But-1 chart (Botany) in yester7 day's inter-club competi- tions, athletes were handi- capped by weather and track conditions. . Windy conditions are nor- mal at Moore Park, and ath- letes recognise this hazard. The state of the cinders, however, requires criticism inasmuch as the approaches for the field events and run- ning tracks are far below tbe standards which allow ath- letes a fair chance of reach- ing times and distances necessary for Empire Games selection. - \ The powdery surface of the inner lane of the cir- cular track caused the run- ners to run one track wide and consequently times were affected. Butchart obviously was running for the experience only and although finishing strongly he was not breath- ing heavily. Merit In Runs There, was thus con- siderable merit in the runs of Bailey and Butchart. However, he must not disregard the per...
