Casual Converse. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
.Casual Converse. By Warwick Fairfax THE War Office! Could anyone walk up the wide marble staircase without thinking of its memories >- the long dark days of Napoleon, the squalor of the Crimea which seemed to overshadow even the light of later victory, the appal- ling slaughter of the First World War, and the horrors, nearer home,' of the Second. Great figures too, the sprightly young Palmerston of Regency days and the hard working Haldane; here at least if we blame the War Office for the failures we must grant it also its share in the long list of glories flutter- ing in the British regimental colours. Iliad, an appointment with the Min- ister, Mr. ShinWell, a very forthright gentleman struggling under difficulties to rebuild the British Army when it has scarcely been disbanded from its last great effort. I was shown into a very large secretarial room with deep windows opening on to a balcony over- looking Whitehall. The room was fan- tastically crowded, not with people, but wi...

WHAT BOWLERS SAY BY SKIP [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
I WHAT BOWLERS SA Y / BY SKIP A STRANGE rule-or custom-of Australian bowling championships pre- scribes that each four entered by the State in which the carnival is held must comprise members of the same club. Visiting bowlers arc permitted to draw members of their fours frqm any club in tho State. The effect is that club fours must compete against Stale fours. This is a distinct handicap except in a few instances where a strong club four is available. Under existing conditions, there is nothing to prevent a New South Wales four comprising Minnis (City), Kelly, (Canowin- dra), Florence (Bondi), and Downes (Boolaroo), forming a four to compete for the fours championship of Australia in Brisbane next May. Queenslander, however, could not enter four similar quality players unless they all happened to belong to the same club. The rule places the home State at a distinct disadvantage and should be abolished. * * * MURRAY Valley Bowls Tour, not to be outdone by the Railway Bowling Club an...
