World Spotlight Time Is Growing Short For The Tough Old Ruler Of Oil-rich Arabia New Era Awaits The Passing Of Ibn Saud From A Staff Correspondent In London [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Ífl Time Is Growing Short For World Spotlight I The Tough Old Ruler Of -^--i^-?----¿---Jl Oil-rich Arabia New Era Awaits The Passing Of Ihn Saud From A Staff Correspondent In London Tlie grizzled old Lord of Arabia,* King Ibn Saud, victor of a hundred battles with the sword, last week lay back in his wheelchair in his air-conditioned Arabian palace, tired, sick and nearly done, watching helplessly the signs of a coming new era. HPHEY foreshadowed the ?*. end of the feudal rule under which the old king has held oil-rich Ara- bia in his iron grip, and the beginning of trouble for the Arabian-American Oil Company (Aramco), last year the biggest oil pro- ducer in the Middle East. Last week 13,000 Saudi Arabian workers went on strike. Thç king's son, Prince Feisal, said to them, "Go back to work." They said, "No." The oil company is wor- ried. This situation has been fçared ever since Ibn Saud's powers began to fail. Other oil companies in the Middle East used to envy Aramco. It had no p...

What We Pay For Our Diplomacy IS OUR YOUNG BUT BIG FOREIGN SERVICE EFFICIENTLY STAFFED? From A Special Correspondent In Canberra [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

What We Pay For Our Diplomacy IS OUR YOUNG BUT BIG FOREIGN SERVICE EFFICIENTLY STAFFED? i-? From A Special Correspondent In Canberra - SALARIES ARE HIGH and expenses seem lavish in Australia's young but now large diplomatic service-a service that has strengths and weaknesses. This article tells of the investigations recently made into the External Affairs Department by the Public Accounts Committee, and incidentally, of other investigations that have been made into the character of a few of the members of our diplomatic staffs. WHEN a department is described by its own Minister as containing "a nest of traitors," and has been given as thorough a check by Security as Ex- ternal Affairs has had in recent months, the kind of life that goes on behind its official facade has sig- nificance. A report on the financial as- pects of the department was published last week by the Public Accounts Committee, a probing body that the Parlia- ment has established as a check against extravagance in ...

CANDID COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

CANDID COMMENT By ONLOOKER I -= á^OOD people in every State are calling for a ban on the lurid sex and crime booklets and magazines flooding the Australian market -trashy, unsavoury stuff, a lot of it, but evidently in popular demand. Cabinet Ministers, studying collections of shockers supplied to them-Acting Chief Secretary McGralh has a bundle in his offiee, I understand-are turning receptive ears to this clamour. For the would-be censors, there is no problem. If a thing is objectionable, ban if, amend the law; put the police up as arbiters of popular taste. It sounds all right. The thought of children and adoles- cents absorbing some of this poison is abhorrent, though vendors claim that adults only buy the passion-and-violence stories of the type chiefly complained of. But where do you draw the line? How define in law, if the present definition is not good enough, what is obscene or in- decent; how clean up the newsstands without suppressing a whole range of borderline material ...

Leon Gellert discusses... THE WAY OF A HOUSEWIFE [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

Leon Geliert discusses . . . THE WAY OF A HOUSEWIFE I don't know if any of my readers' domestic lives are trammelled with what I call Submissive Obstructionism; but, having suffered from it for the" best part of a lifetime, I can vouch for its effectiveness as an instrument of disruption. It is a sort of Underground Resistance movement. - When 1 was in the Army, away back in the beginnings ol the century, there was a punishable impropriety known as Dumb Insolence. This term, covering a wide range of indefinable misde- meanours, was devised for the benefit of the officer who, on occasion, might feel that his dignity had been slighted by a subordinate, but who could not put his finger on the precise nature of the affront. It was particularly direct- ed against the non-commis- sioned soldier who accepted chastisement with mute and philosophical acquiescence. In those days it was con- sidered that nothing was so disrespectful to .an officer or so detrimental to regimental discipline as ...

CHESS: By G. Koshnitsky [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

CHESS: By G. Koshit itsky Losing a hard-fought game is usually a painful experience, and it requires considerable self-control not to show .one's disappointment when con- gratulating the winner. In most cases the loser is only too anxious to demon- strate where he went wrong and missed a win. On some rare -occasion, however, the loser genuinely admires his opponent's play and actually enjoys losing a well played game. The following game illus- trates such a case. His oppon- ent's beautiful concluding com- bination gave the loser as much pleasure as any game he ever won himself.

M.P.S WARY ON BIG WAGE ISSUE THE WEEK IN POLITICS By OUR POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

M.P.S WAR Y fTHTwEEK IN POUTIC I ON BIG WAGE ISSUE By OUR POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT A GROUP of Federal politicians last week performed the interesting if useless feat of discussing a vital wage decision by the Commonwealth Arbitration Court with] their heads in the sand. THEY did this in a brief, diverting debate on the New South Wales Government's action in disregarding the Court's decision to suspend quar- terly cost-of-living adjust- ments. According to the caleula* tion of the Opposition Leader, Dr. Evatt, this was a matter affecting nearly 2,000,000 workers in Aus- tralia, yet constructive ideas were singularly lacking in the discussion. The lack of ideas wasn't accidental, as Dr. Evatt was trying to extract political gain from the debate and the Government, having no chance to do so. was run- ning for cover. The debate was launched by a Victorian Liberal, Mr. Percy Joske, who introduced a motion attacking the New South Wales Government, and sailed into it, shining with honesty a...

FEATURES A Glamour Horse For The Cup? [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

FEATURES A Glamour Horse For The Cop? By OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT "CAN THE HORSE carrying No. 1 saddlecloth win the Melbourne Cup for the fourth consecutive year on Tuesday lUC 1VU1 l»i \si***.^>- - j week?" This is the big question among racing enthusiasts, both knowledgeable and amateurs, throughout Australia. THE "No 1 hat-trick" over the last three years was performed by Comic Court (1950), Delta (1951), and Dalray (1952). This year the Sydney champion Carioca, with top-weight of 9-11, in- cluding the penalty he in- curred for winning the Metropolitan, will carry the No. 1 Saddle cloth. And he is an equal favourite on all pre-post betting charts. . Carioca is the glamour horse of the Australian turf, although his defeat at Moonee Valley yester- day will be worrying his Cup admirers. If he wins this year's Cup he will be the first horse to carry his big weight to victory since 1930, when the mighty Phar Lap won with 9-12. Carbine holds the weight-carrying record among the Melbo...

FEATURES A Plague WITH WINGS Is Coming [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

* F E A T U R E S * M Piague WITH WINGS h Canting REPORTS LAST WEEK of grasshopper damage in the central west of New South Wales were only the first rumblings of a war which is likely to rage in south-eastern Australia for months-and perhaps for years. For it is clear already that this could be the worst plague in Australian history. ACTION taken in ?**? the next two weeks will probably decide the course of the war. If it fails, losses in New South Wales and Vic- toria could well amount to £5 million or even more. The plague locust is an ancient enemy of man- kind, as devastating as drought, but even more dangerous, because it "strikes with unbelievable " swiftness. Last week the enemy was marshalling its forces. The eggs of Australian plague locusts - which most of us call simply grasshoppers-lie now in a great belt across New South Wales, extending from close to the Queens- land border south-west down into Victoria. (They are shown on the map on this page) Every day, now, millions...

The FEUD FEATURES [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

VKe FEUD IrMTüitis Bl By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT IN NEW YORK r A SUN-BAKED TOWNSHIP down south in Dixie turned the clock hack for Americans one day last week to the days ihey imagined had "gone with the wind." ON the main street of drowsy little Fayette ville, Tennessee (popula- tion 3,822), in the very doorway of the town's only department store, be- fore the eyes of frightened but not especially surprised women with shopping bas- kets on their arms and chil- dren at their skirts, two members of the town's most aristocratic families shot it out in an old-time feud. When it was over Fay etteville's leading lawyer lay dying in the doorway of the little corner store. Badly wounded, but stand- ing over him, was his father in-law, rich, tall, distin- guished, the very prototype of the cultured "Southern colonel," calmly awaiting the arrival of the police. As they rushed up, he quietly handed them an automatic pistol of his own, two shells still in the cham- ber, and a pistol that he had p...

SAVE ANIMALS' LIVES By A STAFF CORRESPONDENT LULU THE LIONESS who was sue cessfully operated on at Taronga Park Zoo last week achieved brief fame with her, Caesarian section-the surgical delivery of a stillborn cub-but only be cause she's a big cat, and because she had two leading Sydney surgeons who are better acquainted with what goes on inside a human.

FORGOTTEN NEIGHBOUR [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

FORGOTTEN NEIGHBOUR From JACK PERCIVAL, who is visiting Dutch New Guinea. WEST New Guinea, Australia's north- ern neighbour, lies scarcely an hour's flight from the Australian mainland; but in its iso- lation it might almost be another world. Here, in an area of 160,000 square miles (which is roughly twice the size of Victoria) about 10,000 Dutch, including Eurasians, are facing problems which make those of Australia in the other half of New Guinea seem almost simple. Wild and gloomy mount- ains, heavy jungles and un- tamed peoples, make this territory difficult to explore and develop. It is believed the area holds at least a million natives. As the last of the once great Netherlands East In- dies, West New Guinea with its copra and timber, its promise of oil, coal, gold, silver, copper, nickel and chromium is important to the Dutch. They know that their presence here may be chal- lenged-the young republic of Indonesia has already made claims to the area. It is just as important, or...

FINANCIAL REVIEW Business Topics: Over-Growth In Petrol Industry? [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953

FINANCIAL REVIEW j Itiisiiicss Topics: Over-Growth In Petrol Industry? By THE FINANCIAL EDITOR All sections of the petroleum in- dustry are forging ahead so rapidly I in Australia that one sometimes wonders if the sum total of this keen ' competition may not eventually lead to the extreme state of competition which is associated with'conditions of excess capacity. ONE can say at once that this would not be a serious danger in most sections if the rate of-ex- pansion tapers off now. Yet only last week we learned of further develop- ment plans for H. C. Sleigh and the formation of a new company, Oso lene Petroleum, which will have a subscribed capital of about £950,000. One wonders when the pace will drop. Nearly half of Osolene's capital will be subscribed by a powerful, unnamed. American oil group which evidently desires a foothold in the Australian market be- fore the saturation point is reached. Osolene will not be a re- fining company, but will import the oil into a big ocean ter...
