SHAKESPEAREAN BOOM [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

SHAKESPEAREAN BOOM »T^HIS will probably be the busi est Shakespeare year in Syd- ney's history. Besides the produc- tions planned by Mayne Lynton, the Independent Theatre's Shakes- peare company, and the Metro- politan Theatre, Anew McMas ter's touring company from Eng- land has announced a sizable Shakespeare schedule. McMaster's company, recruited from players who have appeared at one time or another at Strat ford-on-Avon, opened in Mel- bourne a few days ago. It aims to do "Macbeth," "The Taming of the Shrew," and, possibly, "Romeo and Juliet." The other plays in its list are said to be "Trilby," "An Ideal Husband," and "Oedipus Rex." Mayne Lynton has completed his castings for his March season of this year's Intermediate play, "Twelfth Night," at the Theatre Royal. His Viola and Ageuchcek problems have been solved by the engagement for these roles of Ann Bullen and Barrett Fleming. Others in the cast will be Malvolio (Mayne Lynton), Sir Toby Belch (Augustus Neville), Maria (Bill...

NEW FILMS "Oliver Twist" [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

|»NfcW° FILMS« I "Oliver Twist" /'MNEGUILD have made a powerful and harrowing film out of Dtckens's story about the tortured youth of a workhouse orphan, who falls among thieves before he comes into his aristo- cratic inheritance. The fierce and menacing beauty of David Lean's direction in a number of individual scenes magnificently muted lighting, un- usual camera angles, sardonic ob- servation of the grotesque and the horrible and the comic-compen- sates handsomely for some of the loose ends in the script. To keep a driving cinematic pace in Dickcns's long and« wide ranging narrative, Lean has been forced to leave the motives and deeds of some of the characters unexplained-a better procedure, on the whole, than clogging the action with footnotes and ex- planations. Certainly, Lean has brought to the story a swiftness of dramatic movement and an intensity of feeling that rarely lapses into the breathless episodic jcrkincss cha- racteristic of most filme'U novels. Lean is a master o...

'Phone Call To Holland For Athlete [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Thone Call To Holland For Athlete T^ANNY BLANKÈRS-KOEN, *? , the famous Dutch athletics champion, last night telephoned ' her mother and children in Am sterdam, and excitedly told them about her first appearance at ,a Sydney athletics meeting. She explained the condition of her riglit leg, which had received attention from a masseuse and a masseur before she went on the Sydney Sports Ground at the State championships meeting of the N.S.W. Women's Amateur Athletics Association. Last night, with her husband, Mr. .lan Blankets, she dined with Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Payne, from whose home at Mo.sman she made the oversea telephone call.

Bright Beauties [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

ri Deaufies The use of tartans in the designs of clans and iion-clan&> will brighten the autumn fashion scene by day and by night. Lovely woollens and crisp taffetas in all the gaiety of plaids are ideal for both day anil evening wear. Impetus will be given to the use of plaid .fabrics by the new tartans which have been specially prepared for members of the Royal family. Some of these are already available in Australia. Along with correct Scottish tartans there are plaids which belong to no-clan at all, but nevertheless have grcal style of their own. In rayons and taffetas, par- ticularly, these plaids and over-printed checks are admirable for evening frocks with full skirts* The evening frock illustrated on this page, although designed for two tones of taffeta, would look well made up in a bold . plaid rayon, as indicated in the sketch for " one of this week's patterns. Vandvked bands of petun- ' ia taffeta enliven the full "kirt of a bright blue danc- ing frock whic...

POISON for a BRIDE By A SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT In the long history of crime some of the most frightening cases are those dealing with the criminal use of poison. POISONERS have had ?*. successors all down the ages, and here is the story of one who, as he joined his bride at the altar, had plotted for her an early, miserable end. In cold-blooded thor- oughness of conception his plan had few parallels. Incidentally, it has the curi- ous distinction of having been, in one important particular, the first case of its kind in medico legal jurisprudence. The scene of the story was Timaru, a small seaport in the south island of New Zealand, the trading centre of a wide and prosperous farming area. T 1VING there over 60 years ?*-* ago were Captain Henry Cain, a retired shipmaster, his daughter, Kitty, and Thomas Hall. Hall, in his thirties, was dis- trict manager of an insurance - company's business-well educated, a member of one of the best-known families in the colony, of agreeable presence...

Don't look now, girls, but your slips are showing, says the writer of this Warning to Women [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Don't look now, girls, but your slips are showing, says the writer of this Warning to Women By PHILLIP GRENVILLE rpHOSE men who turn to -"- look at you in the street, and, admit it, you'd hate them if they didn't: Whnt ure they looking at? You, of course; but still what? It isn't your hair-do, and it isn't your hat. It isn't your make-up, or the attrac- tive little dimple you've painted in your chin. It is no1, apparently, any ol the things you've been worry- ing about to attract their at- tention. We asked them, and, if they can be believed, it's your personality-expressed in ( various little things you don't realise, and could hardly al- ter even if you did. Your appeal is mostly psy- chological-or so they say. p\RESS, as it reflects your character, is'most impor- tant.

Soap Opera's Leading LADY Every week day, from Monday to Friday, more than 100 commercial radio stations in Australia broadcast episodes from an average of 55 radio serials. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

* Soap Opera9$ Leuding ÀLA.D.Y Every week day, from Monday to Friday, more than 100 commercial radio stations in Australia broadcast episodes from an aver- age of 55 radio serials. By PHILLIP MANN THJS means that at least 20,000 separate episodes are played weekly to an audience of several million people. Soap opera, the greatest source of revenue to Australian commercial radio, is a well-established favourite with regular listeners in every walk of life. The term "soap opera" cor- rectly refers to daytime serials. They derive their name from the early days of Ameri- can radio, when serials of the "sob sister" variety-still popu- lar, of course-were written expressly for the housewife, and sponsored and paid for by leading American soap manu- facturers. But to-day the term can reasonably cover every type of serial, for whatever time it may be broadcast, the princi- ple is still the same-"listen in again and hear what happens next." The forenoon, Monday to Thursday, is still the most...

FISHING AND WHERE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

I fSff I Yfï AMU WHERE 3 J ATEST news from Ber- magui, is that Mrs. Kip Farrington is showing the men how to catch big fish. Mrs. Farrington landed a 2041b black marlin on a 24 thread line; the next day a 3481b mako shark on the same gear. The Kip Farringtons are out here especially to fish for our black marlin, which are not found in American waters. During Thursday's fishing, a member of the Farrington boat crew hooked and brought along- side a tuna weighing 1001b, which Mr. Farrington identified as an ¿Alison tuna. This is the first time this fish has been definitely identified in Australian waters. Big sea bream have appeared on the reef at Terrigal. No large catches have been reported, but the fish weigh up to 41b. Big catches of luderick are still being taken from Port Hacking in the Burraneer Bay area, but sharks are bad in the deep water. E. Butler, of Manly, landed a 501b jewfish at Manly Beach one night last week, using mackerel for bait. ' Another fisherman caught 10 ¡lai...

BILLY COOK Names Amounis As The Greatest Horse He Has Ridden WEIGHT-CARRYING FEAT IN CUP WIN [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

BILLY COOK Names Amounis As The Greatest Horse He Has Ridden WEIGHTCARRYING FEAT IN CUP WIN By BILLY COOK T WON only one race on * Amounis but that was enough to convince me he was the great- est horse I ever rode, ~ ' Perhaps that's a mighty big thing to say after one winning performance: But conviction does and must rest on that one run, for the next time I was on his back Amounis broke down and did not race again. When I speak of Amounis as the greatest horse, 1 think of him as an all-rounder. Naturally, he would not have lived against some of the sprinters I have ridden; nor could he stay W. COOK as well as some of the horses of terrific stamina I have won on. But when he won the Caulfield Cup of 1930 with 9-8, he created a weight-carrying record that re- mains. And he won it like a real champion. i Amounis's .tiaihcr, the late Frank McGrath, and 1 both realised that, as an aged per-1 former with 51b more than weight-for-age for a gelding, the old fellow had the job in front of-...

IKE WILLIAMS LOST, BUT "WON" From Our Staff Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

IKE WILLIAMS LOST, BUT "WON" From Our Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Feb. 5.-Many boxing writers, having thought the matter over for a day or two, decided last week that lightweight champion Ike Williams actually won the fight he officially lost to Cuban Kid Gavilán on January 28. But it was such a close fight they aren't claiming "robbery." The fact is, Williams made the fight-nearly all the way. Gavilán landed heavily at times, in bursts of counter-fighting, hut his punches were more eye-catch- ing than effective. From the bleachers he appears to be doing great damage. Seen from the front few rows, it was apparent that Williams blocked many punches with his shoulders and forearms. Williams simply jerked his head away from the path of many of Gavilan's bolo punches, giv- ing the impression that he had been hit. However, the champion suf fered a severely cut. right eye, as a proof that Gavilán can punch. Fight followers will not be happy until there is a re-match. , Attendances Grow ...

Mental Approach Big Factor In Golf [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Mental Approach Big Factor In Golf By H. "OSSIE" PICKWORTH In this article, H. "Ossie" Pickworth, Australian open golf champion, emphasises that the right mental approach is necessary for success at golf. TT is strange that many * people have a tendency to believe that, as a golfer, I am nearing the veteran stage, when, actually, my golf career has been fairly short. I suppose this idea rises from the fact that I have won a num- ber of championships in a rela- tively short time, and that since 1937 1 have figured a good deal in the golf news. I am now 31 yeais of age, and I doubt if I am yet at my prime -at any rate, I'm certain that 1 can still improve my golf. , Looking back over the 22 years that have passed since T began to set myself practically and whole-heartedly on a golf career, I find that my experience reveals one thing above everything else: Any golfer who seeks success must cultivate the right mental approach to the game. Making It Hard That may seem a bit trite, but be...

TEAM OF 140 FOR EMPIRE GAMES [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

TEAM OF 140 FOR EMPIRE GAMES -« MELBOURNE, Saturday.-Australia will send a team of at least 140 to the British Empire Games at Auckland, next February. This was decided at to day's meeting of the Aus- tralian British Empire Games Association. Efforts will be made to in- crease the team to 200 if suffi- cient funds can be raised. ' A fencing team will, for the first time, be included in Aus- tralia's representation. To-day's meeting decided that the minimum representation of 140 should comprise boxing and wrestling, 16; rowing, 19; ath- letics, 39 (26 men and 13 women); swimming, 34 (includ- ing a water polo team); cycling, 10; fencing, 16; weight-lifting, 6. It was decided to send a manager and manageress and that £100 for each should be set aside before other allocations were made. Fencing Criticised There was some criticism of the proposal to send a fencing team, but it was pointed out that New Zealand had included one in the championship points allo- cation and had omitted water ...

Sylvia Chase crashed into a rudderless yacht before round- ing the Chowder Head mark for the run to the finish. She was then two minutes in the lead. Only' careful handling by her skipper, J. Boyd, and crew, pre- vented the sail from tearing right across to the mast. The yacht was later taken in tow by a police launch. Sylvia Chase won the race by 2m 8s from Myra, with The Tiger 10s away, third.

Team System Needed In Speedway Racing [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Team System Needed In Speedway Racing By V. C. DAVIS To reach its peak in crowd appeal, speedway racing in Australia should copy the highly successful English League team system. rpHlS is the opinion of Eng-, * lish Test rider, Norman! Parker. Parker believes speedway racing in Australia is not as suc- cessful as it might be because: t People, apart from "dyed in-the-wool" enthusiasts, get bored with "circus" type pro grammes, consisting mainly of handicaps, interspersed with side- car and midget car races. . The general public finds it hard to retain interest in pro- grammes in which team competi- tion is lacking. . In Australia the tendency is to glamourise individual riders vhose repeated successes become monotonous. . Not enough status is given! ia Australia to lesser riders, who, under conditions similar to those of the English League, find them- selves playing vital parts in team events in which every point gained counts towards the team's victory. PARKER sees a ray of hope fo...

MARSHALL SETS NEW 440 RECORD Fine Freestyle Swim [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

MARSHALL SETS NEW 440 RECORD Fine Freestyle Swim " By Frank Tierney In a fine unpaced swim, John Marshall last night clipped 3.9s from Jack Medica's Australian 440-yards freestyle record. Marshall was «competing in the opening series of the New South Wales championships at North Sydney Olympic Pool. He won the race by 40 yards, and was timed at 4m 48.1s. Medica set the Australian record during his .visit in March, 1937. Before the race Marshall felt confident he would break the record. He set up a long lead in the first 110 yards and officials doubted whether he would be able to set a new time. They thought the lack of com- petition would cause Marshall to tase up. But Marshall, as a result of his Olympic Games experiences, is now a fine judge of pace. His aim was to break Medica's «cord, and before coming to Sidney he made several trials in Victoria. In two swims in Richmond baihs, Melbourne, Marshall was timed at 4m 48s and 4m 47s. . These times were set in fresh water, and Marsha...
