SPOTLIGHT ON WORLD AFFAIRS People Of Portugal Will Vote At Last [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

SPOTLIGHT ON WORLD AFFAIRS I1 People Of Portugal Will Vote! At Last From H. G. KIPPAX, s RECENTLY IN LISBON THE Portuguese people last week warmed up to the excitement of an election campaign, the first in 22 years in which they had the right of choosing between a Gov- ernment and an Opposition candidate. A breath of democracy, faint, but still perceptible, is blowing through the stuffy political atmos- phere of the Iberian Peninsula. Both the Iberian dictators General Franco in Spain and Dr. Salazar in Portugal-were making their first suggestion of a curtsy to world opinion. Franco's gesture, so slight as to be almost meaningless, was to hold municipal elections and to give the electorate at least the chance of choosing from among Franco's nominees. In Portugal now they are won- dering how far Dr. Salazar will unbend-just how much freedom there will be in the elections which are to be held next Sunday. It is generally felt that if the Communists and extreme Left do not make any mov...

Israeli Flag In London [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Israeli Flag In London From IAN BEVAN, IN LONDON IN London's chill winter wind a *? new flag is fluttering for the first time on British soil, the flag of the new State of Israel. Yesterday week a small crowd gathered in a corner of London's shabby Manchester Square to chant songs which fell strangely on English ears. They gazed up at the balcony of No. l8, where a group of elderly men stood around a slim young girl while she hoisted a flag on a sloping pole. The flag was white with two horizontal blue bars and a blue Star of David. ?^O. l8 is a five-storey house, ?^ almost next-door to the stately old mansion which houses the Wallace collection. It had been empty for years, but a few hours after the British Foreign Secretary, Mr. Ernest Bevin, had announced that Britain had recognised Israel, brass plates were up outside the door announc- ing it was Israel's Consulate-Gene- ral. A few doors away flies the flag of another new State, the Moslem State of Pakistan, which has not yet re...

"Depression" Talk Left U.S. Uneasy FROM OUR NEW YORK OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

"Depression" Talk Left U.S. Uneasy FROM OUR NEW YORK OFFICE WHISPERS of a depression "just around the corner" have left America's Mr. and Mrs. John Doe a little bewildered and a little uneasy. If Mr. and Mrs. Doe believe the advertisements, the long awaited golden age of post-war plenty and at cut prices-is here. The only trouble is that Mr. Doe knows he can't afford to buy even the bargains. ' ' These are a few examples of what the stores are offering, partly because there always have been sales in January and Feb- ruary, and partly because the cost of living is actually moving down: . . A television set, originally priced at 500 dollars, now going for 350. (The catch is that 350 dollars-say ¿CA110 is still a major invest- ment for Mr. Doe.). . Fur coats which were 1500 dollars, now selling for 1000 dollars. (With 1000 dollars equal to £A312, that is still beyond the Doe bud 8et)- . t . Winter clothes are down 30 per cent. fBut winter will be over in two or three months). . Shoes w...

Comic Court Wins Well With 9.7 [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Comic Court Wins Well With 9.7 MELBOURNE, Satur- day. - Carrying 9-7, Comic Court (5-2 on) won the Devonshire Handicap comfortably from High Tar and Rocket Gun at Moonee Valley to-day. He dashed to the front entering the straight and went on- to win by two and a half lengths. Comic Court was a 3/1 on favourite before the horses went to the post, but his price eased when it was seen he was very short in his action on the way to the post. Purtell cantered him for two furlongs and kept him on the move before the barrier was drawn down. Began Well He began well and at the end of the two furlongs was in third place behind Dupont and Mark You. He bad no difficulty in holding his place racing up the side of the course, and as soon as Purtell moved on him ap- proaching the turn the colt quickly raced to the front. In 14 stafts Comic Court has won six races, his'stake winnings totalling £6225. His main mis- sion during the autumn is the V.R.C. St. Leger. High Tar, who has been sup- ported fo...

Norway's Reply Cheered The Democracies FROM OUR LONDON OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

Norway's Reply Cheered The Democracies FROM OUR LONDON OFFICE A MID the diplomatic feelers .**? and threats of last week, the democracies were cheered by the voice of one tiny nation. Norway (population three mil- lion) bluntly stood up to Russia (population 170 million). . . . rPHE Kremlin demanded to *? know what was Norway's attitude to the Atlantic Pact. _ Coldly polite, Norway replied that Norway's position as a sea- going nation made it natural for her to investigate conditions for possible participation in a re- gional security system of Atlantic countries. The reply meant Norway would link up with the Western Union Powers. Few things had helped her make up her mind so much as the latest Russian demand. Norway is Russia's neighbour. Their common frontier, the northernmost in Europe, came in- to being when Russia after the war annexed part of Finland commercially unimportant but strategically invaluable. The annexation passed without much comment, and has since been almost for...

SPOTLIGHT ON WOULD AFFAIRS British Labour Watched Three Setbacks [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

I SPOTLIGHT ON WOULD AFFAIRS \ ! i . aggSBaaaa-ag-^-sa III- . assi-gasa.i i B=-an«aas-aBmsJ) British Labour Watched Three Setbacks From IRVINE DOUGLAS, In London rvHE "News - Chronicle" *? last week published one of its periodical polls on trends in British political thought. This purported to show that the Conservatives' were still by ä slight margin ahead of Labour in popular esteem, as they had been since June, 1947. . It also purported to show that Conservative support had de- clined a few points since Novem- ber, whereas Labour support had remained fairly steady. Since the American Presiden- tial election confounded all poll- sters, these results have to be taken carefully. . . . THE conductors of the poll themselves refuse to proph- ecy. As they put it, they "flatly decline to lay a premature wreath on Labour's grave." Between the Conservative opti- mists who say there is going to be an anti-Labour ¡landslide at the general election next year, and the gloomy Tories who groan t...

CARBON COPY IN FINE FORM [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

CARBON COPY IN FINE FORM MELBOURNE, Saturday.-Car- bon Copy showed great form in the Chelsea Handicap at Moonee Valley to-day. Third last at the half-mile, Carbon Copy raced round the field, which included some of the fastest sprinters in Mel- bourne, to finish fifth. The winner was Dumfries, who easily defeated Prince Curl, with Assam a good third. This was Carbon Copy's second race since the Melbourne Cup. Dumfries is engaged in the Oakleigh Plate, with 8-0-the weight he carried to-day. He is also in the Newmarket Handicap. Open Betting Race The Chelsea Handicap was a most open betting race. The winner started favourite, and Assam, Carbon Cop)', Tamaroa, Prince Curl, and Cognac were well backed. Cognac did most of the pace making, but, by the time they reached the home turn, Prince Curl and Dumfries had gone past him. Prince Curl looked like winning, but Dumfries outstayed him. Cognac is still a possibility in the Oakleigh Plata, because of his great speed. Tt was only in the last...

"PUNITIVE LAWS" Defence Of Landlords [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 February 1949

"PUNITIVE LAWS" - » Defence Of Landlords Landlords are becoming a depressed class in Australia, Mr. G. F. Davis, secretary of the . Property "Owners'* Association, said yesterday. "While prices spiral higher and the cost of living soars, rents are pegged on 1939 values, which have long since ceased to be reasonable," he continued. "There are about 150,000 land- lords-large and small-in New South Wales alone. "Two-thirds of these are small landlords, who own a single house 'and let it. I "The 1939 values, on which the rents they receive are based, arc at least 33 1-3 per cent, below the market values' of properties to-day. "Under present conditions a man and his wife would need to have a property investment of £5,000 to get a net return equal to the income of a married couple on the old age pension.

MACQUARIE BUILT A CITY Governor Macquarie would still recognise the city that has grown from the village he turned into a town. Under his guidance.it gained a pattern it will never lose. By JOHN BRENNAN THERE were bullock drays in George Street in the early February of 1822, and the teams, eight or twelve beasts, lay down across the road at Market Street and let the traffic swirl around them while their mas- ters engaged in shouted bar- gainings with the produce and stock vendors who had their booths where now are the Queen Victoria Buildings. At Government House, Mrs. Macquarie was packing her bags and those of her Gov- ernor husband, for a saddened Macquarie was leaving his Sydney never to return. It was his Sydney more than it was any other man's. And it still is. In eleven years his planning had changed it from a village into a town. He had shaped it, named its streets, pressed and moulded it into a pattern which it has not since lost and now scarce can ever lose. Macquarie gave...

Wool Must Now Head Off Rayon [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

Wool Must Now Head Off Rayon From Our New York Office The long-standing battle between wool and* sub- stitute fibres has reached perhaps its most dangerous stage, American experts believe. , The first job of the newly-formed Wool Bureau wRich merges the International Wool Secretariat, Dominion Wool Boards and the American Wool Council -will be to head off the post-war gains of substitutes. "VK/E must educate public and ?? retailers to the fact that wool is still the best fibre of them all," Mr. Eugene Ackerman, chairman of the bureau, told the "Herald" last week. Substitutes, particularly rayons, have made dramatic progress in the United States since the war ended. Rayon, in 1948, estab- lished its first real foot-hold in the summer suiting market. The summer of 1949 is expected to see 25 to 30 per cent, of light- weight suits made from rayon. "High prices of woollens forced retailers to look for something else," Mr. Ackerman said. "They didn't like rayon, but they bought it." Rayon...
