Trainer Disturbed Over Swabbing Of Veiled Art [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Trainer Disturbed Over Swabbing Of Veiled Art Trainer .R. W. Skelton was the centre of a storm at Rosehill yesterday after the stewards had ordered the swab- bing of Veiled Art, one of his horses. Veiled Art had run second I to Amar in the First Parra- matta Mixed Stakes. It was the first swa_b taken from one of Skelton's horses in nearly 50 years of racing. Skelton declined to go to the veterinary stall after the race de- spite requests from assistant steward Mr. J. W. McFadden and another^ steward, Mr. J. Killian. "Take the hoi se away, do what you like with him, 1 have noth ing , to worry about," Skelton said. "You have the owner. That is all you want." Subsequently Veiled Art was led away by a stable lad accom- panied by hiß owner, Mr. U. Solomons, and tests were pro- ceeded with. Skelton arrived at ' the stall some time later. , - "Do you want mc, Mr. Mc Faddcn?" he said. "No, not now, Mr. Skelton," Mr. McFadden replied. Later. Skelton said he had been so disappointed at the co...

Significant Events Of The Week [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Significant Events Of The Week By COLIN BINGHAM nnHE latest Russian big idea .*? about peace was tossed off by Stalin just as if he were in casual conversation with a friend. History, of course, is full of examples of how statesmen have by-passed diplomatic procedures and have set a ball rolling. Sometimes, however, it has been a "ball of fire." That is why professional diplomats mistrust, in general, the activities of Heads of State who aspire to settle world problems in an in- formal manner. And no less do they mistrust statesmen who make "offers" of seeming world importance through written answers to the questions of a news agency whose turn it was to be ans- wered. (Stalin had previously re- plied to the questionnaires of several other international news agencies, and besides had ans- wered a number of politically opportune questions by Henry Wallace, then a candidate for the United States Presidency.) . . . THE truth probably is that this off-hand approach to matters of the hig...

Pact Gives America Bases in Europe [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

I Pact Gives America Bases in Europe rpHE United States last ?^ week returned a firm reply to Stalin's offer to con- fer with President Truman. Washington made it clear that Russian' moves would not stop her from carrying through the Atlantic Pact to ally Western Europe and North America. British officials expected the pact to be signed in a few weeks,-and there were rapid moves in preparation for giving the Americans access then to many military bases. i An American Vice-Ad- miral last 'week surveyed the docks area at Liverpool. This is expected to be the Americans' main base in England, and its port facili- ties are being increased. Service officials were pre- paring Gibraltar, Plymouth, Scapa Flow, and Malta as combined naval bases for Britain, the United States, France, and Canada. The French bases of Toulon, Brest and Saint Nazaire were also being prepared as com- bined, bases. The key clause in the pact will be that an armed attack on any one of the signatory nations will be c...

COMMENT BY THE SPORTS STAFF [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

COMMENT BY THE SPOUTS STAFF OUR two conservative Rugby codes would help keep their dwindling fallow- ings if they adopted an Aus traban Rules practice. In Rules the home side wears dark knickers and the visiting team white. Melbourne, headquarters of Australian Rules, long ago found that the public liked this help in distinguishing players on murky afternoons. . . . rpHE rçcent schoolboys' tournament organised by Billy Mcwilliams at Beverley Park merely served to emphas- ise the sad lack of facilities for teaching and encouraging jun- ior golfers in Australia. Apart from junior cham- pionships, and occasional purses for assistant profes- sionals, nothing is being done in any State. In the United States, a Nat- ional Golf Foundation, spon- sored by leading golf equip- ment manufacturers, has been set up, as a non-profit, co- operative organisation. It provides for the teaching of golf in schools and colleges, and assists anyone providing golf instruction, or interested in forming new...

Beat His Rivals On Three Legs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Beat His Rivals On Three Legs I . . - ? *-. Amar, winner of the First Parramatta Mixed Stakes at Rosehill yesterday won "the race "on three legs." When the blacksmith, Mr. I Les Solomons, went to the I stall after the race to attend to Amar he found that the colt had burst open the heel of his off foreleg. The veterinary surgeon, Mr. Roy Stewart^ was immediately called. He treated the colt, and advised the trainer to have Amar at his veterinaiy hospital to-morrow morning. R. Abbott ha,s found Amar hard to train ever since he took him over as a two-year-old. When a yearling, Amar fell on the road and injured the knee ot his off foreleg. Amar yesterday was having his first race since finishing second behind Journalist in a Canterbury Mixed Stakes on September 4. Trouble Recurs When brought back into train- ing a few months ago, he began to show signs of' trouble in the off-foreleg. He was treated for/this com- plaint. When taken to the Victoria [Park barrier trials recently, it was di...

I THIS WIDE WOULD- I ** NEWS FROM HERE AND THERE ** I ^- - ?**-'- -1- -?- -!-' ¥ U.S. Feärs A Record Flood NEW YORK. - The United States is preparing for the worst flood in its history. Engineers believe it may not come for 10 weeks, but they are, sure it will cause enormous damage and possibly serious loss of life. Five feet of snow now lies over an area of more than a million square miles of the United States. Last week's fall was the heaviest the nation has ever known. The snow has already caused big stock losses. Many animals and some human beings were frozen or starved to death. But (he flood engineers say its damage is only just beginning. . . . ' \X T'HEN the warm spring sun hits the frozen face of the continental United States, all this snow will turn to water in a mat- ter of hours, and pour down to the sea, ripping out valuable agricultural land and overwhelm- ing whole towns.

State Department Under Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

' In December he had a heart attack while walking in the Mary- land countryside. He was found near his home, nearly frozen to death. . . . T AST week he was up and about again. In his widely read newspaper column he was calling for a complete reorganisa- tion of the State Department. He said General Marshall's attempt "to model the department on the General Staff" had been disastrous." What was urgently needed now was a closely integrated depart- ment. Mr. Sumner Welles added that Mr. Dean Acheson, as General Marshall's successor as Secretary of State, might be just the man for the reorganising job. . * * ¥ . A S a matter of fact, there is ?...

THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB Discovering Charles Dickens [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

I THE SUNDAY BOOK aUBJ Discovering Charles Dickens By NEVILLE CARDVS Were Charles Dickens alive in the flesh he would be exactly one hundred and thirty seven years old to- morrow. Because of his great and splendid gallery of portraits he is still alive in the spirit-still being dis- covered afresh by each new generation. ANNIVERSARIES give us ex- cuse to return to an old writer, but with Dickens we needn't nervously intrude on those parts of our bookshelves which are hallowed by antique dust. Dickens escaped the recent reaction against the Victorians; even one of the Sitwells-Osbert or Sacheverell, I can never tell one from the other-has written admiringly and affectionately about Dickens. i Though he was of his period in his maturity, and steeped as a novelist in the ethic and senti- ment of his day, he never shared the prevailing humbug or prim- ness, for the simple reason that his genius took birth and first impulse from the 18th century's rowdy finale, from Fielding and Smollett...

M.P.S Will Woo Electors This Session By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

M.P.S Will Woo Electors This Session By OUR CANBERRA CORRESPONDENT rp HERE are a lot of tourists in Canberra at present, ordinary, everyday non-political folk - a pretty fair cross-section of the Aus- tralian community. PARLIAMENT is not in ses- sion so they can get seats on aeroplanes and rooms in hotels. But on Wednesday the Federal Capital will revert to its normal abnormality. ' ' ' The politicians will be back; the Parliamentary clockwork will be wound up for another year;'the charmed circle drawn again; and these reminders of the outside world will creep away in decent humility. _ --¡J And in any ordinary year not a sign would they leave behind. . . .

Achille«, an attractive Ajax colt, having his first start, won the colts and geldings' divi- sion of the Two-year-old Maiden Handicap. He ' started at 20-1. Owner of Achilles, Mr. T. L.

CONVERSATION PIECE Peter Passes Out [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

¡CONVERSATION PIECE Peter Passes Out By LEON GELLERT 1HAVE sworn an oath to im- merse myself publicly in a tank of milk at any forthcoming Mardi Gras festival should I ever again succumb to the indecency of reading Peter Cheyney. I admit I have had misguided moments when I was glad enough to take vulgar refuge in that re- gion of preposterous poppycocki ana over which Mr. Cheney pre- sides. Even Humbert Wolfe, the poet, was, if dust-covers are to be believed, a not infrequent visi- tor. Sawdust and sham, so long as they are recognised as such, can, for a time, provide entertainment, but the Cheyney puppets, apart from having long since given at the seams, still pursue their same melancholy antics with the same artificial show of violence and bravado. . ÏN the beginning Mr. Cheyney's *? readers, generously assumed that the author was talking with his tongue in his cheek-that he had no illusions about his literary status. One has only to peep at his latest masterpiece "No Ordin- ary C...

Milestones Of Frustration [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Milestones Of Frustration By SHAWN O'LEARY "Growing Up," by Olivia Manning; Heinemann Ltd., London. QLIVIA MANNING, author of an Irish novel and a book on the travels of Stanley, has lived a life of exciting sensation in the last 10 years. She arrived in Rumania three days before war broke in 1939 and stayed there until the Ger-1 mans marched in. She was' evacuated by plane to Athens, where she worked for the British Military Mission, and from there escaped by the last ship to Alex- andria. After that followed work in Cairo and Palestine.' But no matter how extraverted her adulthood, her writing leaves the impression of childhood frus- tration. These tales may not be autobiographical, yet they have an impression of first-hand psycho- logical analysis and faithful feeling. These unrelated tales leave a second impression beside that of personal tragedy. At the end of the book there is the effect of a cohered novel, its theme being the travel and travail of the road from childhood to m...

Robert Close Off His Course [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Robert Close Off His Course By JAMES TAYLOR CTRANGE it is that a man .^ who spent five years at sea in sail and steam at a period when mariners were not the pampered class they are to-day and risks were real should have so little to say, and say that little so inadequately. Mr. Close, having achieved a great deal of dubious notoriety with his "Love Me, Sailor!"- not a brilliant example of trie literary art, be it said-went on to better things in "The Dupe." The latter, indeed, gave promise of a dis- tinguished third book. Here the question arises: Would Mr. Close be now so much in the public eye and his workv attract such attention if he had never shocked official sensi- tivity with "Love Me, Sailor"? That, I think, is to be doubted. . THAT he was prosecuted for an obscene libel, fined and im- prisoned; that on appeal he was released from .gaol, but forced to pay a still heavier fine (£150); and that he was given an im- mense spread of unsolicited pub licity, probably caused him as ...

Surprise Photo-finish Verdict In Victora [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Surprise Photo-finish Verdict In Victora MELBOURNE, Sat. The judge's verdict for Rover's Mark (A. Breas ley) in the Sturt Handicap surprised punters at J Moonee Valley to-day. | ' Believing that El Latada had beaten Rover's Mark in a tight finish, some of them laid as much as 100-3 and 100-5 on El Latada. Odds of' 10-1 were available against Rover's Mark. The photo-finish chart, how- ever, showed that Rover's Mark, finishing on the outside, had won by half a head. The result was as great a sur- prise as the last A.J.C. Derby when Carbon Copy was given the verdict over Vagabond. Rover's Mark has had -^.two firsts, three seconds, and a third in her last six starts. She is trained by F. W. Hoysted, who has also won two-year-old races for fillies this season with Luck Penny and Bright Sea. El Latada Unlucky El Latada, who carried No. 13 saddlecloth, was most unlucky. At the half-mile he was the leader, but Rover's Mark headed him as they straightened up for the run to the winning post. ...
