Rough Race [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Rough Race MELBOURNE, Saturday. -After a severe check along the back of the course, Heather Rose finished im pressively at Moonee Valley to-day to win the roughly ridden Malua -Handicap. -The check forced her back from fourth place to near the tail of the field. She recovered pluckily and with a brilliant run took the lead early in the straight. . Monte Cassino, kepi wide from the rise of the barrier, was second two and a half lengths back. It was his fourth con- secutive minor placing. The hot ' favourite, Damon, was also unlucky in running. A long sustained run enabled him to cut Uncle Joe out of third place in the last stride. Law Case was another io suffer in what critics regarded as one of the roughest races in Mel- bourne for some lime.

There May Have Been Ants in the Sandwiches and Sand in the Tea, But Picnic Yielded £50,000 Sapphire Picnicking on the famous Reward Claim at Ruby Vale, Queensland, Mrs. Roy McKinney found a sapphire as big as a turkey egg. It was worth about £50,000. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

There May Have Been Ants in the Sandwiches and Sand in the Tea, But . Picnic Yielded £50,000 Sapphire Picnicking on the famous Reward Claim at Ruby Vale, Queensland, Mrs. Roy McKiimey found a sapphire as big as a turkey egg. It was worth about £50,000. THAT incident tells the story oí the Australian - sapphire. As in gold and diamond prospecting, luck dominates the search for sapphires. The best equipped prospector may hunt vainly for months, while a casual holiday-maker may stumble upon a stone worth a fortune. Only 300 yards from the site of Mrs. McKinncy's find, the Queensland Star sapphiie. valued in America at £70.000, was discovered by Mr. Harry Spencer, a local resident. HÖHERE is a big demand in the U.S.A. for Australian ? gems. The richest sapphire fields so lai known are at Inverell and Ruby Vale Small de posits have been found in Tas- mania, and it is believed that intensive piospcctmg would re seal even largci sapphiie and othci gem bealing deposits in West Australia Geo...

Lithgow Miners Got Value For Cheers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Lithgow Miners Got Value For Cheers Twenty Lithgow miners caused laughter among the crowd at the Sports Ground yesterday when   they wildly cheered   Marjorie Jackson after her 100 metres victory. The miners said that they had made a special trip from Lithgow on Friday afternoon to attend the championships. A spokesman for the group said that they had followed Mar- jorie Jackson's performances since she began running three years ago. ' Her performance to-day has convinced us we were right in our opinion-she is a champion among champions," he said. 'We cannot undcistand why Marjorie was not selected for the Olympic Games. " [During State trials last year Marjorie Jackson faltered and slipped almost to the ground dur- ing a 100-yard race. ] The miners celebrated Lith- gow's victory at the Sports Ground beer booth. Former Stawell Gift runner and professional champion Jim Monaghan, who trained Miss Jackson, said he had been confi- dent she would give an outstan...

Notes On The Beat [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Notes On The Beat "DENIAM1NO GIGLI may come to Australia for a con- cert tour next year, according to members of the Italian opera company who have heard that negotiations for such a tour are afoot. Chief hitch up to now is that Gigli is asking for something like £stg 1,000 a concert-a price which doesn't leave much change out of a capacity Town Hall. . * . SYDNEY'S sunshine makes it hard for composers to com- pose, according to Eugene Goos sens. One look at the Harbour from his study window and the composing mood decomposes. His main mission at the moment is to make orchestral transcriptions of Albeniz's "Iberia" pieces. The sunshine should be good for that. It's worth noting that none of the sunny countries of Europe has ever produced a symphony of any importance. But don't let us go too deeply into the subject here after all, Iceland and Lapland and Spitzbergen haven't produced an important symphony yet, cither. . ' . .

Archbishop Denies Complicity [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Archbishop Denies Complicity LONDON, Feb. 5 (A.A.P.). The Archbishop of Salzburg, Dr. Andre Roracher, in Vienna to- day denied that he was implicated in the activities for which Car- dinal Mindszenty is on trial. The archbishop also denied that there had been a plot to re- store the Hapsburg dynasty. He added that efforts to safe- guard the Hungarian crown of St. Stephen had no political charac- ter, since the %crown was a reli- gious relic. v "In view of these facts, it is quite impossible that Cardinal Mindszenty should have made the confession which has been pub- lished," Dr. Roracher said. MASS ARRESTS The Polish and Czechoslovakian Governments have ordered the mass arrest of "plotters" and "re- actionaries." . The Polish Government claims that secret police have smashed a plot to assassinate leading members of the Govern- ment. . In Prague, Czechoslovakian Communist papers say the Czech Army has been "purged without mercy" of high-ranking officers who planned to overthrow the "...

THE WOMAN'S VIEWPOINT A Sad Sight Of Soup Vegetables, 1/ [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

THE WOMAN'S VIEWPOINT A Sad Sight Of Soup Vegetables, 1/ HPHE saddest sight that has met * my eyes this week, was the tiny parcel on my kitchen table which held my soup vegetables for the week-end. One carrot, medium fresh, one pallid parsnip, two sticks of celery, and some rather tired parsley . . . And that set mc back one whole shilling. 1 didn't dare to look at the bill for the. whole week's vegetables, I have a weak heart! The . same day, after the banks were shut, 1 had opened my bag and found that only elevenpence remained. The unthinking male next to me said, "You'll have to feed the family on mince." But-I ask you, how, much mince would lid buy me these days? I can barely afford to feed the cat at the butchers these days, let alone the family. J TOOK a South Australian *? friend out to a picnic lunch the other day and asked her about her housekeeping in Adelaide. She complained bitterly of the price of fruit there. . .

Rita's Trousseau To Be Designed By Jacques Fath [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Rita's Trousseau To Be Designed By Jacques Fath From ELENE FOSTER PARIS, February 5.-Guests of honour f at Jacques Path's spring collection were Rita Hay worth and Prince Ali Khan, both of whom showed great interest in the new styles, as Fath will make the film star's trousseau for her marriage to the prince. Fath says his new collection is based on a new find in cutting. He brings the shoulder seam to- wards the front, thus projecting the back of the frock towards the front and giving women a rather round-shouldered look. ' . , "1 have called it the 'turned down line,' " Fath explained. "This changed silhouette gives women a narrow-busted look with the 'shoulders brought forward, and 1 think^ the style goes .with short hair, close-fitting bowl hats, and straight skirts, with always toward-thc-front multiple box pleats." Jn putting his fullness in the front.of the skirt Fath is perverse, for every other designer so far has put the fullness at the back. His skirts remain 13 inches fr...

Boyer Checks Broadway Doldrums From Our New York Office [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Boyer Checks Broadway Doldrums From Our New York Office ARS in Hollywood have apparently not killed Charles Boyer's ability to act-to act, that is, according YE to the exacting standards that New York's irascible drama critics demand of people who walk the legitimate stage. Nobody detests a film star more intensely than a ' New York drama critic. Time after time, the Broadway critics have seen first-rate stage talent desert the brave and gruelling creative life of the "live" theatre to take on the talent-killing posturings that pass for acting in the Holly- wood scheme of things, and to indulge themselves with machine made dollars. The New York drama critics regard practically any actor who "deserts" the stage for the films as* a renegade for whom no abuse can be xtoo strong. Few film stars who have gone back to the New York stage have escaped their calumny or scorn. Hullo, Judas-they seem to say-how's Benedict Arnold these days? . . . TJOYER was more of a hero to *-' brave out thes...

MUSIC AND THE THEATRE We Have The Singers; Why Not Our Own Opera? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

I MUSIC AND mt THEATRE I We Have The Singers; Why Not Our Own Opera? By Lindsey Broivne Why can't Australians present grand opera now, and make a go of it? This question is being more widely and less unconfidently asked [han ever, now that the visiting Italian company's Australian season is in its last week. MANY Australians are asking questions because they, have been too ready to suppose that the Italian visi tors have not set a formid- able standard. For more generous reasons, even some of the Italians are asking it. The company's most hard- working tenor, volatile Aldo Fer íacuti, told me a few days ago that he had auditioned several ex- cellent Australian singers, and he ran across to his piano to show me the extraordinary vocal range of one 20-year-old Australian tenor he had heard. Ferracuti kissed his fingers to the wind by way of demonstrating his enthu- siasm for these voices. He said there was plenty of money in Australia, and he illus- trated the point by rubbing his fin...

. . . Stage Whispers r^ANNY KAYE can arrange to *~^ come to Australia, the grape- vine says, if he is guaranteed £5,000 a week. With six night performances and two matinees a week, it might be a paying price at that. But Mr. Kaye couldn't hope to take it away in dollars. . . . LONDON'S big first night of the week was at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, where Sir Ralph Richardson and Peggy Ashcroft appeared in a new American play, "The Heiress," which has been adapted from Henry James's novel, "Washing- ton Square." The critics without exception hailed the play as one of the most moving and most subtle dramas to reach the West End for years. Its story is about a gawRy, unat- tractive girl whose sole chance of marrying-to a fortune-huntcr-1 U ruined by her father, who can not forgive her for not being as beautiful as her mother. Richardson's performance as the father is universally admired. The critic of the London "Daily Telegraph," W. A. Darlington, said: "He contrives to give , . . ev...
