University Sports. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 3 October 1920
University Sports. The University Sports were held at Loton Park yesterday. An ex cellent exhibition was put up by the students, but the attendance was wretched — about 20 all told. A more significant comment, this, upon public apathy towards the University than all the newspaper articles ever printed! Besides, let us remind the Uni. people that 'it pays to advertise.'

Doins in Polioment O'LOGHLEN CANES UNDERWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 3 October 1920
Doins in Polioment O'LOGHLEN CANES UNDER WOOD. Peter O'Loghlen, in a fine speech, supported Mr. Green's motion for better accommodation for the work ers. He was repeatedly and stu pidly interrupted by that ungentle manly hog, the unspeakable Under wood. Peter put up a plea' for better houses in the timber camps. Mr. O'Loghlen: I will produce sworn evidence from the Arbitra tion Court. Mr. Underwood: It is not worth anything. z Mr. O'Loghlen: It is worth as much as the grunt which comes from the boorish gentleman who in terjected. I cannot understand what is wrong with him lately. Mr. Green: Swelled head. Mr. O'Loghlen: Swelled head! His head could not swell; there is no. thing in it to force the skull out wards. Since he has been dropped by every party — he was an acquisi sition to none and a -credit to none — he is so disgruntled that he can not regard with favour any proposi tion submitted that does not emi nate from his own brilliancy. His colleagues on every side have dropped hi...

Railway Robbery FLEECING THE APPRENTICES —AND FLAYING THE FARMER—TO SQUARE THE LED-GER-A FATAL POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 3 October 1920
Railway Robbery FLEECING THE APPRENTICES —AND FLAYING THE FARM ER—TO SQUARE THE LED GER—A FATAL POLICY. The latest spasms of death-flurry perpetrated by the 'optimistic Mitchell would appear to be of the nature of a deliberate attempt to ruin the railway system in antici pation of his successor turning out to be of distasteful political com plexion. The brunt of the attack in this case is felt by those least able to defend themselves — sons and daugh ters of working men in receipt of small wages. These apprentices were hitherto allowed a big conces sion, enabling them to keep a few shillings out of their meagre earn ings for pocket money. Pope's lat est piracy grabs the lot, with the result that either parents must stint themselves to^allow the young sters a little pocke't money, or else all amusements must be cut out, and' life become a dead dull round of work and bed. That sort of thing young folk won't stand, that is to say, they won't remain appren ticed, and the future of the i...

Renunciation got into all the trouble imaginable last week, and is worth watching. Keep Mannequin in your mind for Perth. The last shall be first— a la Red Banner and Sandfuse. Affaire de Joie was ridden a bad race by Brindley at Goodwood. The ex-West Australian jockey Jimmy Stephens rode Chamois to victory in Adelaide last Saturday. Senator Pearce, Minister for De fence, was present at the last Trot ting fixture at Hay-street EasS . The Minister fired the shot which started the principal event. Won der if this was the Senator's first experience with firearms. His aim was so accurate that he must have shot Winn Childe, who drifted...

BERTIE BOOTS THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 3 October 1920
BERTIE BOOTS THE GOVERN MENT. ? KJ Approaching the elections, E. B. Johnston castigates the Ministry he has for five years so blindly and slavishly followed: Mr. Johnston: I look with a good deal pf suspicion uporrthe Govern ment's action in regard to agricul tural education, and more especial ly m jcgdiu iu iuc instructions tney have given with regard to the selec tion of a site for an agricultural col lege. I cannot forget that a little while ago a' committee was appoint ed to inquire into this question. However, the Government did not give that committee a. fair and hon est brief to go over the whole of Western Australia to find the most suitable site. 'They were instruct ed to select a site within 20 miles of Spencer's Brook. The Minister for Works: Oh! Mr. O'Loghlen: Is that true? Mr. 'Johnston : I am assured that that is so. If it is not so, I shall be pleased to have a denial from the papers relating to the matter on the table of the House. The House has . no right to let 'th...

THE LIFE OF JOE BECKETT. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 3 October 1920
THE LIFE OF JOE BECKETT. (Continued.) I suppose most boxers are ambi tious, even those who box for the Amateur Championships, which are naturally much easier to win than any championship in the profession al class. I can't say when ambition was first born in me, but I do know that I always wanted to be a boxing champion. But the way to a cham pionship is a rough road, strewn with more thorns than rose petals, pelieve me. As everyone knows, I am entitled to call myself the heavy-weight champion of Great Britain, and hold a belt for it, the Cochran belt. Lonsdale belts, as everyone knows, are fought for at the National Sport ing Club, and my first contest for a Lonsdale belt was against Dick Smith, a good fellow, and a really good boxer, who was always just a bit too light for highest honours. I have boxed a good many times in the National Sporting Club, where I had my first contest something like ten years ago. As far as mem ory serves me it was against Jack Hearne, and at that time ...
