SLEEPING IN HOUSE NOT ENOUGH MAGISTRATE RULES ON OCCUPANCY [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 13 April 1951
SLEEPING IN HOUSE NOT ENOUGH MAGISTRATE RULES ON OCCUPANCY The fact that a person was sleeping regularly in a house did not automatically mean that it was 'occupied,' a Magistrate ruled in the Orange Court recently. The magistrate awarded an ex-serviceman possession of a house which had been sold but which, was not legally occupied at the time he lodged his ap plication. The ruling of the magistrate, Mr. A. S. Tunchon, S.M., is ex pected to have a wide repercus sion on the future sale of pro perties. The court was told that the house was offered at auction with vacant possession on Feb ruary 10 and was sold for a high price and a contract sign ed. Evidence was given that the house had been unoccupied but the owner had arranged for a relative to sleep in it as from March 2. This person had his meals with Ms wife and family at his own home but went to the unoccupied house late each night and slept there. In his summing up, Mr. Tun chon said that there was noth ing more than token use ...
TENNIS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 13 April 1951
TENNIS Last Sunday the Tennis Club again attempted to introduce local matches, with very little success. Only about four people turned up. The lack of local enthusiasm and support for such a fine social game are most disap pointing to those very few who have been devoting their time and energy to put the game back on a sound footing. There are plenty of players in the dis trict to give it that footing! It was decided to have one more attempt next Sunday to get the crowd of players to the court for local games. If next Sunday's games are a failure because of lack of at tendance, the local club may again slip back-into oblivion.
