PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE-LINE MEN AND HORSES MANRICO IS OUR BEST SPRINTER [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 28 July 1939
PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE LINE MEN AND HORSES (By THE METEOR) MANRICO IS OUR BEST SPRINTER It Is a long time since we have had a sprinter of Manrlco's class. Regular track attendants at Ep. som are wondering what the Man fred gelding would run if he was allowed to stretch out in his gal. lops. One day last week J. Holt, his trainer, sent Harold Badger out on him to run sir furlongs in even time, and even though Badger kept a firm hold of this head the bay ran the first half-mile in 492sec., and completed the six in 1.18. Again on Tuesday morning he was sent out to run an even time six, and to the amazement of his jockey, Frank Tocknell, he reg istered 1.182. In each of these gal lops Manrico did not appear to be going faster than evens, and it is re markable how he records such fast times with such ease. I would wager to say that if Manrico were allowed to gallop at bhis top for five" furlongs next to the rails he would easily shatter the Epsom track record of 1.0j, held by Lady Montague....

Scarcity of Fish AND FISHERMEN'S PENALTIES [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 28 July 1939
Scarcity of Fish oOo AND FISHERMEN'S PENALTIES The fishing industry came und er .discussion in the State House last week, when Mr Francis Field drew attention to the severe penal. ties imposed on fishermen convicts d of long-line fishing. ivir Flela drew attention to hard ships imposed on fishermen in Mordi alloc through the operation of section 54 of the Fisheries Act. This matter was adversely commented on by the honorable member for St. Kilda last year, when the.
