THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
THE WEATHER. Commonwealth Meteorological Bureau, Brisbane August 28. Notes on the 9 a.m. Weather Chart: Although the great anticyclone that dom- inated Australian meteorological condi- tions during the whole of last week has lost some of Its Intensity since last Friday, It Is shown by to-day's chart to be still a system of great scope and vigour. On Saturday morning Its central space lay over the south Tasman Sea to the east- wards of Tasmania, but thereafter It sud- denly extended northwards, dlsplaclife in a very emphatic manner a great loop In the 30.1 Inch isobar that stretched south eastwards from Willis Island to Lord Howe and Norfolk Islands. Thus the system to-day covers the vast region be- tween Macquarie Island, Torres Strait, the Louisiade Archipelago, the Chatham Islands, and a point on the Pacific ap- proximately 400 miles south-west from Suva, the central space (In which atmos- pheric pressure Is almost certainly as great as 30.4ln) bolng found on tho chart between Cla...

WEAKNESS OF WINGERS. ILKLEY, August 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
WEAKNESS OF WINGERS. (From Harry Sunderland.) &nbsp; ILKLEY, August 27. The Sunday newspapers, without roast- ing the Australians, pick out the weak- ness of the slow-moving wingers com- pared with the sprinters of past teams, and veterans like Wagstaffe, Seeling, and others, who were looking on, also stress this. The "Leeds Echo" says: "At centre Brown and Pearce were strong, but rather slow, as was Neumann. Thus there is likely to be a lack of finishing power in the thrusts of the tourists. This is in- tensified by their lack of good marksmen. Syd. Pearce, M'Millan, and Brown all failed with easy shots. Time after time intensive backing up and short passing gave the visitors openings, which Horder and Blinkhorn would have made light of. Still the Australians hammered away down the middle, wearing out their opponents by sheer persistency. This lack of speed is going to be the tourists' greatest handicap unless they can shake off the effects of the sea voyage to over- come i...
REALM OF BOWLS. By "LEAD." [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
REALM OF BOWLS. By "LEAD." The annual meeting of the Queensland Bowling Association will be held next Thursday night at 7.30 in the Master Builders' rooms, Wharf Street, and the indications are that the proceedings will be far from dull. As evidence of the in- terest that Is taken in the affairs of the association it is understood that there ate six nominations for the positions of vice president. The time and manner of playing the pennant matches promise to give rise to considerable discussion. One proposal is to arrange the fixtures' so that they will be completed before the Christmas holi- days. The object probably Is to enable the clubs to liavo ampio time during the uecond half of tho year to finalise their competitions, but no matter when the pennant competitions are played games directors will have their worries. This was demonstrated two or three seasons ago when the pennants were played in the early part of the association's year, and on some greens that, hastily opened aft...

RARE CASE OF PSYCHICAL OBSESSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
RARE CASE OF PSYCHICAL OBSESSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-The passing on of Sir Nicholas Colston Lockyer, C.B.E., I.S.O., during the week-end in Melbourne brings to my mind the boyhood days we spent together in Sydney when the family attended my father's church in the '80's. His mother was a noble type of woman. She gave evidence of a rare psychical obsession, and, there- fore, was of arresting interest. She was a dominant personality. When my father was marrying her to her second husband, a gentleman of noted social standing, she refused to say, "I will obey," as was required in those days. The ceremony, of course, came to a standstill, and when she found that my father insisted on the legal requirements being fulfilled she re- &nbsp; luctantly complied. Afterwards she said to my father, "You are the first man I've ever obeyed." The incident so impressed her that she never for- got it till the day of her death. My father had several years of declining health...

Dorothy Dix [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
» Do not scorn the love of the middle-aged! J)EAR MISS DIX.-We firmly be- lieve that what the older genera- tion calls love is merely sex appeal. Our elders try to convince us that the affection that they hold for each other as man and wife is love, but we maintain that it is merely friendship. We believe that the only true love which exists is the love a mother has for her children. Please give us your unprejudiced opinion as to whether love is or is not sex appeal. TWO MODERNS. ANSWER: 0F course, the love of parents for their children is perhaps the most unselfish love in the world because, as a general thing, It gives all without asking return, and it forgives all and endures all. All of us have known mothers and fathers who have sacrificed every- thing to their children and who have been repaid with the Uabcst ingratitude. We have seen proud and honourable old grey heads bowed in shame over their chil- dren's misdeeds and yet these fathers and mothers clasped their prodigals to ...

A Great Publisher. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
A Great Publisher. The death of Mr. George Robert- son, of Angus and Robertson, Ltd., which occurred on Sunday last is a great loss to literature. He was more than a book-seller. He was a great publisher; and to be a great publisher means that a man has to love literature for its own sake. The firm of Angus and Robertson has a splendid record. Among its more noteworthy publications, will be found the "Australian Encyclopaedia," the "Official History of Australia in the War," and the original works of Henry Lawson, of "Banjo'' Paterson, and other well-known writers. Also it was in great measure due to Mr. Robertson that the Mitchell Library in Sydney was established. A good book to him was a treasure, and he was ever on the look-out for merit in writers. Many an Australian author has had to thank him for advice, encouragement, and suc- cess. If a work had any merit he would take the risk of publication. It would be impossible to calcu- late the value of the services ren- dered to Aus...
