Bowls 

Abandoned 

by Sol Green 

Bowling commenced at Rose Bay 
on Thursday, 15th May but due to 
inclement weather, had to be 
abandoned. 

Bowling President, Fuzz Porter 
celebrated his birthday — only a few 
more years to eighty. Mr. Lew Malouf 
took the hat around and Mrs. Alan 
Walker, on behalf of the members, 
presented Fuzz with a bottle of 
whisky. 

Bunny Saw has left hospital and has 
fully recovered after a serious 
operation. 

Nick Solomon has entered hospital 
for a minor operation. We wish you 
well Nick, and look forward to seeing 
you on the greeen again. 


PRESENTATION TO SENIOR 
MEMBERS 

A luncheon was recently 
tendered in the Board Room to 
some 50 Senior Members, who 
were presented by the 
Chairman, Jim Comans with a gold 
badge to signify their having attained 
35 years of continuous membership of 
the Club. 

In his speech of welcome, Jim 
conveyed the thanks to the recipients 
for their contributions over those 35 
years and more, in helping to make the 
Club what it is today. 

35 years does not sound a long 
time but as Jim remarked “a 
member elected this year, 1975, 
would have to wait until the year 
2010 before receiving his gold 
badge!”

BERRIES BROTHERS 

Federal Minister for Recreation, Hon. Frank Stewart M.H.R. (left) and his 
brother Kevin, M.L.A., work out at Belmore Sports Ground. 

Both were former Canterbury-Bankstown League players. 

Frank Stewart played 72 games for the Berries before he retired in 1946. 
Kevin, who is MLA for Canterbury, had 68 games to his credit until 1948. 

Frank has been a member of Tattersall’s since 1957. 



Frank (left) and Kevin (right). Was it a forward pass?

ABOUT THOSE FLIES 

Committeeman Claude Moore once 
raced a Morse-Tontine horse which 
won 18 races. 

It was called Mortine.

SOME ENCHANTED EVENING 

In a life time of journalism one is 
disciplined not to be abashed by the 
nature of any reply to a personally 
directed question. 

In following news for our TCM 
readers we often direct a query to a 
member enquiring as to what his 
calling might be. 

In our Club there’s scope for a wide 
variety of replies. 

Like when John R. Snelgrove told 
of his career as a ship’s pilot in the 
Torres Strait service. 

His journeys take in the inviting 
ports from Sydney to Darwin, Papua 
New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. 

And as avid followers of the TV 
tales of Paradise and the South Pacific 
we hope that when the stars are 
brilliant and the moments are quiet, 
during John’s voyages, he will favour 
his colleagues with some interesting 
stories and memoirs. 

* * * 


IN THE MUD 

Owners of horses at different times 
they regularly adjourn to the “well” 
on the first floor. 

Here once again we met up with 
Morrie Anderson, Tony McSweeney, 
Wal Hutchinson, Norm Rogers, Arthur 
McCamley, and Leo O’Sullivan, all 
owners and trainers at some time or 
other. 

And believe it or not — their 
erudite topic this day was derivation 
of phrases now frequently used. 

The one that we remember best 
was the discussion about horses that 
are crackajacks on firm courses but are 
not worth a bumper on wet tracks. 

Said Leo O’Sullivan “It’s quite 
true. I trained Amiable — as good a 
horse as you could get on dry land 
but he could not go a yard in the 
wet”. 

“As a matter of fact that is how the 
term was first coigned “STICK IN 
THE MUD”. 


S.T.C. committeeman Newman 
Manion recalled the silent generosity 
of the late legendary Ned (Skinny) 
Moss. 

Newman recalled a young Olympic 
girl swimmer unable to raise funds 
though selected to go overseas as an 
Australian representative. 

Asked Ned “Why aren’t you 
going?” 


“No dough” said the girl. 

“How much?” asked Ned. 

“It will cost so and so” was the 
reply. 

“That so” said Ned “your’e going”. 

And he touched the kick for the 
necessary. 

“Only one of a thousand good 
deeds anonymously done by Ned” 
said Newman.

PYMBLE POINT 

If you come in to the Club on the 
First Floor around lunch time you are 
bound to meet prominent frequenters 
of the 19th hole at Pymble Golf Club. 

They include Nowell Jones, Len 
Hinds, Syd Jackson, Os Bates, Charles 
and Geoff Eastment and Steph. Lowe. 


FROM NEW GUINEA 

Flaving lunch in the Club was 
Wm. J. (Bill) Meehan down from 
Kavieng, New Ireland, New Guinea, 
where he has hotel, transport and 
plantation interests. 

In his 32 years in N.G. he has been 
President of the Rabaul Amateur Turf 
Club, and also the New Ireland Show 
Society. 

Describing life generally, Bill says 
the natives are born athletes, and have 
a splendid athletic club, whilst at 
Goroka in the highlands, there are no 
less than four codes of football played 
— soccer, Rugby League, Rugby 
Union, and Australian Rules. 

Bill has promised T.C.M. readers an 
informative article on life in our near 
neighbouring isles. 


EXECUTIVE POST TO 
PETER MOORE 


Committeeman Claude 

Moore’s son, Peter, has been 
appointed as Assistant Under 
Secretary, Department of 
Labour and Industry, New 
South Wales. 

Peter, who is 47, has had 
wide experience in industry and 
in industrial relations. As a 
barrister, he had a practice in the 
industrial relations field and had 
previously been industrial 
relations manager for one of 
Australia’s largest steel 
distributing groups and before 
that for a major marketer of 
bituminous products and 
construction materials. At one 
stage he had been industrial 
advocate in a trade union and at 
another was secretary of an 
association of employers. 

Peter graduated LL.B. from 
the University of Sydney in 
1961 and also gained the 
Industrial Law Certificate. Fie 
lectures in industrial law at 
Sydney University and is sole 



author of a new edition of a 
reference work on industrial 
relations in Australia. 

Fie also did the Real Estate 
& Valuation courses with the 
Sydney University Extension 
Board obtaining the diplomas 
of A.R.E.I. and Q.R.V. and 
gaining first place in N.S.W. in 
the examinations and has 
lectured in these subjects.

IN THE BOOT 


ROCK OF AGES 


Peter Prentice lives out back of 
Bourke really at Tucki, New 
Angledool. 

He is the owner of a V8 Holden 
Premier. 

In Sydney recently both Peter 
and his wife Christine bought up big 
for things they required at home. 

Came the day they were ready to 
depart — and their car was stolen. 

Peter duly reported the matter to 
the police, and the insurance. 

Six weeks after, the car was located 
in a suburban street. 

A resident told the gendarmes that 
she was sick and tired of seeing the car 
parked in front of her house for four 
weeks and wanted it towed away. 

The police duly located Peter. 

As he explained “I had new ignition 
keys, different to the ones in the 
boot.” 

“Whoever stole the car covered 
2,500 miles but apparently because 
the keys did not fit the boot, they 
were not inquisitive and left it alone.” 

As Peter unfolded his sorry story in 
Betty’s bar to Jack O’Neill, Jack 
McDonnell, Bill Hannan and the 
inevitable query came from Vin 
Barrett. 

“What was in the boot, Peter”. 

He laconically replied “One sewing 
machine — latest model — present for 
Christine, and ONE DOZEN of the 
best rum you can buy”. 

Next visitor to Tucki, please 
present this report and you will be 
duly greeted with one on the house. 

As the radio ad. says “This offer is 
only good whilst the present supply 
lasts”. 

* * * 

ON THECUFF 

Ken Brown, as everybody knows, 
has only one arm. 

Similarly every well known citizen 
of Tattersall’s, when he loses the one 
cuff link, gladly sends its remaining 
make to Ken. 

The result! Ken has more single 
cuff links than anybody in Sydney. 

We casually asked him to show us 
the one he was wearing. 

No, please don’t! 

Of course it was — just a short 
button. 


Arthur Miller is a wizard at the 
billiards and snooker tournaments and 
he is also a great supporter of all that 
takes place at the Sydney Cricket 
Ground. 

We found him engrossed in friendly 
discussion with Tony McSweeney and 
Jack O’Neill also S.C.G. regulars, and 
the topic was cricket. 

It all arose from a chat at Rosehill 
S.T.C. races. 

A prominent medico who once 
played with Sydney University Thirds 
maintained that Dr. H.O. (“Ju Ju”) 
Rock, then a Sydney Uni. player, had 
a better Sheffield Shield average than 
the one and only Don Bradman. 

For those that like to chance “a 
round or two” for “a bob or two” this 
was fruit for the sideboard. 

The drinks were set up, the stakes 
agreed and it was left to us to obtain 
the decision. 

First we approached Ginty Lush 
and he was in a bit of a quandary. 

He said “The only way to solve it is 
to ask the N.S.W. Cricket Associ¬ 
ation.” 



THE MAN IN LONDON 

Behind the scenes preliminary to 
the commencement of each Rugby 
League season there is great activity, 
much connivance, and secretive action 
in attempts to obtain players. 

A smoke screen is drawn over the 
scene per the media with the idea of 
duping or thwarting other clubs. 

Thus it was at North Sydney who 
executed two astounding coups by 
securing the services of great English 
forwards Gray and Fiddler. 

Each time Rugby League North 
Sydney spokesman John Grogan 
would make only one comment — 
“It was done by our man in London”. 

To every request for his name or 
whereabouts, John just repeated “It 
was our man in London”. 

Now that the fun and fury have 
abated, TCM can disclose the identity 
— it was Tattersall’s Club member 
barrister John Cummins “who just 
happened to be in London at the 
time negotiations were on”. 


“Ask for Alan Barnes and tell him I 
sent you”. 

“It’s history that Alan and I hold 
the Mosman 7th wicket partnership 
records.” 

Even Tom Dickman would say that 
Ginty never misses a chance for a plug. 

We tried for Alan, who was in 
conference, (hear that Ginty?) and we 
contacted Harry Shuhan. 

Harry went to all sorts of trouble 
and eventually came up with the 
decision. 

By the way — what is your 
opinion? 

Here it is! 

H.O. (“Ju Ju”) Rock’s average in 
Sheffield Shield was 112 — and the 
Don — 109. 

Ju Ju played six Shield innings, and 
the Don 62. 

By the way, Harry Shuhan assures 
us that “Ju Ju” in his second Sheffield 
Shield match against Victoria, scored 
235 in the first innings, and Alan 
Kippas 212 not out with N.S.W. 
totalling 614. 

Yet, Victoria beat us,. . . OWZAT? 


STITCHES OUT 

Bill Graf had a serious operation 
five years ago. 

He was discharged from hospital 
on 10th April and each year since Bill 
entertains all the medicos concerned 
at Tattersall’s dinner. 

Now he is off on a lengthy overseas 
trip. 

You name it, Bill’s going there. 

What! Fairbanks, Alaska, too! — of 
course. 

Happy icicles from your racing 
confreres, Bill, including Rev. Father 
L. Tosi, Phil Roach, Ted and John 
Peoples, Dr. John McGirr and Sid 
Miles, Frank Lynch, Nook Farrell and 
Jim Burrell.

Anzac Day saw a reunion arranged 
by Peter Gunton and Eugene Mansour 
of members of 325 Radar Unit of the 
R.A.A.F. 

It was formed in Sydney in May 
1943 and after 17 months near Marble 
Bar (sounds familiar) in Western 
Australia, moved to the Pacific Island 
area finishing in Sarawak at the war’s 
end.

Colin Campbell left Australia on 
the 9th May, for a business trip to the 
United States and Europe. In the 
United States he stayed with our

Club. 

While overseas he was joined in 
London by his wife Kay, and, two of 
their teenaged daughters Catherine and 
Rebecca. The family toured the 
Continent taking in France, Flolland, 
Germany, Switzerland, Austria and 
Italy before flying back to Australia 
from Rome.

It was an auspicious occasion 
celebrating Peg Bannon’s birthday, 
(21 again) with husband John joining 
with Ken and Ona Thomas feting his 
appointment as N.S.W. Manager of 
Frangos liquers, and to which chief 
executive Con Frangos came especially 
from Brisbane. 

Remembering that John Bannon 
was only recently appointed National 
Marketing Manager of Queen Anne 
Rare Scotch Whisky, you can rely on 
the water of the Scottish glens having 
achieved their promise.

The Howard Hartog family 
welcomed to the Club Howard’s 

sister Mrs. Friedheim on her visit from 
Entchester, New York.

SMOKING IS A DANGER 

Bill Sheahan has probably filled 
more Ministerial portfolios than any 
other living statesman - and nobody 
has enjoyed the occupancy more than 
he. 

And the way budding son Terry, 
M.L.A. is shaping he will prove a 
worthy successor. 

It is when Bill falls into his easy 
raconteur style that we really like him. 

As he lunched with ex-Health 
Department greats in former Director 
General of Public Health Cyril 
Cummins, and Under Secretary Jim 
Rimes, Bill unfolded many stories. 

Perhaps the one that raised the 
biggest laugh was an incident when 
he was Minister for Transport. 

Ever a stickler on the side of the 
public, Bill was returning from a late 
sitting at Parliament House which 
extended into the early hours of the 
morning. 

Being a resident on the North 
Side, Bill suddenly decided to call in 
at the big bus depot at Neutral Bay 
and see what happens whilst the city 
sleeps. 

He was just in time to see a bus 
driver ready to go home when a 
civilian accosted him. 

“I want a bus to go to Palm Beach 
— when does the next one leave?” he 
asked. 

The bus driver could scarsely 
believe his ears and told him “Don’t 
be silly - not til the first run in the 
morning — it’s only two o’clock 
now.” 

And that is where Bill claims he 
interposed. 

To the driver he said “I am the 
Minister for Transport — the customer 
is always right. 

“Bring out a bus and take this man 
to Palm Beach”. 

The irate driver went back to the 
shed and duly brought out a single 
decker. 

“Take that bus back” bellowed 
Bill, “bring out a double decker — the 
gentleman might care to smoke.”

Ted Lambert and his wife cele¬ 
brated the 75th birthday of Mrs. 
Winifred Hodgins during her fourth 
visit and holiday to Sydney. A further 
party was arranged to wish her au 
revoir on the Oronsay.

NICE TRIBUTE 

by Sam Block 

The evening of February 25 was a 
memorable occasion for the Honorary 
Secretary of the Australasian Pioneers 
Club, John D. Wilkinson who was 
given a testimonial dinner and pre¬ 
sented with a colour television set, 
plus a wallet of notes on his 80th 
birthday. 

John was a well known member of 
Tattersall’s for many years and a 
regular attendant on the Third Floor, 
competing in both swimming and 
handball competitions. He had many 
of the players scalps to his credit and 
I pay this tribute to a keen and never 
say die apponent, great sport and a 
grand old man.

OF THE MONTH From Broadway to Killarney Heights 


It is 6.30 am any morning at 
Tattersall’s Club. 

And here they arrive — about ten 
of them. 

Ready to set the day moving as 
they have for years past. 

And amongst their number is 
Hudson Faussett. 

In the hot-room at 6.40 am - a 
scan of the morning papers followed 
by a “chin wag” with his fellow fitness 
devotees about the political front — a 
shower — steam-room — and then into 
the pool for 20 breast-stroke laps — 
thence to the office. 

See you same place, same time, 
tomorrow, Hudson! 

Now, Hudson has already travelled 
from his home at Killarney Heights. 

He left his lovely wife, Anne, to do 
the early daily chores. 

From the office Hudson drives to 
the Royal Motor Yacht Club where he 
has been the Honorary Social Secre¬ 
tary for the past seven years — the first 
American in the post. 

There he assists in the entertain¬ 
ment of some 72 Tattersall’s 
colleagues — particularly at the Friday 
Night Dinner Dances where he has 
served as Compere for the past eight 
years. 

Putting “Quo Vadis” in reverse, 
“Whither comest thou, Hudson?” 

He was born in Trenton, Capital of 
New Jersey, some 50 miles from New 
York City, U.S.A. 

From 1919 to 1921 Hudson was a 
member of the famous Grace Church 
Choir School (New York). The choir 
consisted of 23 boys selected on a 
competitive basis from all over the 
United States. 

There is no humbug about Hudson. 

“My father died when I was five 
years old. Badly invested capital left us 
with nothing. But I was intent on 
having a good education. I worked my 
way through High School as a page 
boy in the Trenton Public Library and 
then when I went to Washington and 
Lee University in Virginia I worked at 
odd jobs — selling sandwiches and soft 
drinks, cleaned out furnaces and 
tutored to pay for my expenses and 
tuition”. 

While there he played gridiron 
football. To the uninitiated, including 
ourselves, he said that the team 
comprised of eleven players, — a full 


back, two half-backs, a quarter-back, 
two guards, two tackles, two ends, and 
a centre. 

Hudson studied law at the Uni¬ 
versity but the smell of the grease 
paint in the Dramatic Society took 
over and he left for a stage career. 

His first professional theatre 
engagement was with the Trent 
Theatre Stock Company in Trenton at 
the end of 1925. It was for 25 weeks 
with Spencer Tracy as leading man. 

For the next six years Hudson 
played in theatre stock companies all 



through the Eastern States. All in all 
he acted in over 300 plays. 

During the depression in the 
thirties he left the theatre and worked 
as credit representative for General 
Motors Acceptance Corporation and 
spent his spare time chasing and 
repossessing bootlegger cars. 

In 1934 Hudson founded the 
Monmouth Community Players in 
Spring Lake, New Jersey and became 
their General Director. 

In 1936 Hudson produced, directed 
and acted in a play “The Trial of Mary 
Dugan”. The Governor of New Jersey 
(Harold G. Hoffman) saw his per¬ 
formance and was responsible for 
sending him to Hollywood for a screen 
test. 

“I went to Hollywood and made my 
debut with Cary Grant in the film 
THE TOAST OF NEW YORK. But 
the world didn’t appreciate me — 
because they never saw me. I was one 
of the faces left on the cutting room 
floor.” 

After four more films with Lee 
Tracy, Edward Everett Horton, Arthur 
Treacher and Kay Francis, Hudson 


decided to try Broadway as an actor. 

While in Hollywood Hudson 
worked on and did the narrations for 
several Documentaries in various 
countries. One on “Jai Ali” in Mexico 
— one called “Cafe Con Leche” in 
San Jose, Costa Rica and one on the 
World’s Fair in San Francisco. 

Back in New York, war broke out, 
and Hudson had to make a decision or 
be drafted into the army. He enlisted 
in the Navy. 

He spent four years with the 
United States Navy and there are 
flattering letters in Hudson’s files 
about Yeoman (First Class) Faussett. 

During World War II Hudson 
produced and directed several plays 
and revues at Naval Stations and Army 
Barracks. 

It was interesting to note that 
Hudson’s book of credentials, records 
and clippings, opens with a certificate 
issued in 1917 to show that young 
Hudson had won first honours as 
“Junior Four Minute Speaker” for 
war Saving Stamps. (By authority of 
the Government of the United States 
of America). 

There are also letters of 
appreciation for his services to the Red 
Cross, Heart Association and Boy 
Scouts. 

War over, Hudson directed two 
Broadway Shows and became a Collie 
(Director) in the Lambs Club in New 
York. 

He also produced and directed for 
several years the Annual Show for the 
Society of Illustrators and the 
National Cartoonist Society. He is one 
of the six honorary members of the 
National Cartoonists Society of which 
the late US President Harry Truman 
was an Honorary Member. 

1946-1950 Hudson was Director 
of the Famous Newport (Rhode 
Island) Summer Theatre. 

In 1950 Hudson became a 
Producer/Director with the National 
Broadcasting Company, New York. 
He produced 208 dramatic shows for 
the Armstrong Circle Television 
Theatre. 

He was TV Director of the first live 
colour television show link-up between 
New York and Los Angeles with his 
production of “Macbeth” starring 
Maurice Evans and Dame Judith 
Anderson.

Billiards 

& Snooker 

by A.V. Miller 

The handicaps of the billiards & 
snooker tournament for 1975 have 
now been announced and not even a 
ripple of dissent has been made by any 
competitor. Unusual, but very en¬ 
couraging to the handicapper. 

We are now set for entertainment 
of high order over the next few 
months. 

The Calcutta sweep sales have 
boomed and the auction was a great 
success. 

This coupled with the Club’s fine 
trophies plus the Tom Powell snooker 
special trophy, will make the winners 
very happy. 

I consider this years winner of the 
snooker will be very hard to pick and 
it is too early to make any progno¬ 
stication of the players chances. 

It might be wise for them to 
follow the example of Jack Mater, 
winner of last year, whose fine dedi¬ 
cation and intense concentration in all 
his practising gave him that fine 
victory.

BILLIARDS & SNOOKER TOURNAMENTS 

APPOINTMENT OF NEW REFEREE 


With the retirement of Don 
Goodley, for many years the 
respected referee of Tattersall’s 
Billiards and Snooker Champion¬ 
ships, the Club has been 
particularly fortunate in securing 
the services of Bert Tonks. 

Bert has been a member of 
Tattersall’s for 36 years and in 
1959 and again in 1968, won 
our Billiards. Bert has played in 
most parts of the world 
including Singapore, Japan, 
India, America and England. 

Following his discharge from 
the R.A.A.F. Bert was appointed 
to a high position with Universal 
International Films and was 
responsible for all their major 
developments in the Far East. 

As Bert has been playing the 



game since the age of 12 there 
should not be many problems 
which he could not immediately 
resolve. 


PEEP INTO THE PAST 

It was pleasing to hear from A.B. 

(Algy) Gray whose first link with 

Tattersall’s was away back in 1915. 

Algy was then assistant turf writer to turf 
editor Tom De W-arre, and in the same 

room were Bill Frank, also a Randwick 

docker, and Frank Wilkinson (Martin- 

dale), who was responsible for 

chronicling much of the old turf 

history of Australia. 

Algy has seen 59 consecutive A.J.C. 

derbies and by his hale and hearty 

appearance looks due for many more. 


TWO CHAMPIONS 

Noel Simpson was ecstatic as he told of 
having achieved a life's ambition - breeding 
a world's champion. 

Noel said that a colt which he had bred, 
Mr. Karamea, broke the world’s two year old 
pacer’s record on half mile tracks. 

Fie paced the mile in 1.58 3/5, one fifth 
better than the American held record. 

And are regarded Noel’s closing remark 
as added lustre to a champion fellow — “It's 
nice to have bred a world champion even if I 
did sell him as a yearling! GOOD LUCK TO 
THE FELLOW WHO BOUGHT HIM”.

IN AND ABOUT THE POOL 


John Ward “Wards” Off 
Opponents In April Point Score 

John Ward with three wins and a 
second totalling 31/2 points holds off 
speedster Doug Ferris and Ken Finn 
both on 28 in a whirlwind finish with 
Norm Rogers in fourth place (Norm 
missed the first event of the month 
owing to the plane strike). 

It has been quite a while since John 
landed a monthly and his performance 
was a model of consistency, (mar¬ 
vellous how our legal eagles collect 
our trophies). 

Barnett Forges To The Front 

The see-saw struggle between Joye 
and Barnett for the Native Son Trophy 
has the lads on their toes, whilst Fleath 
and Grice are well within striking 
distance followed by Flannan, 
Mortensen, Comans, Rogers and 
McLelland a few points away. 

Upcroft Still Tops In 
Silver Sharpe 

The fight for the Silver Sharpe 
Trophy is at fever pitch with Upcroft 
clinging valiantly to a half win from 
Grice with that indomitable Rogers 
and devil may care Barnett a half win 
astern followed by Flannan, D. 
Dobbin, Ferris and Fleath in that 
order. It certainly is a Blue Ribbon 
event. 

Jack Mandel’s Family Event 
Fluge Success 

Nice seeing fathers and sons com¬ 
peting in the family, stalwarts of the 
early 1930’s lining up, a bit greyer, 
less hair and plus a few extra inches 
round the middle, but none the less 
still quite adept over the 40 yards 
dash. 

The leaders at the moment are 
D. & G. Salier on 13/2 points from 
C. <& F.L. Bowes 12, W. & V. Richards 
11, and R. & J. Debney 9/2 points. 
Two events remain to be completed 
for the trophy. 

Some smart dashes over 40 yards 
were recorded during the month with 
“Hercules” Doug Ferris taking out the 
honours in winning two finals in a fast 
18 & 19 secs, respectively from Bill 
Hannan 19.8 and 19.9, Russell Debney 
20 (on the bit), David Barnett 20.4, 


by Sam Block 

Norm Rogers 20.6, Mike McCormack 
20.8 and Doug Grice 20.9 secs. 

Quite a few of the boys had their 
handicaps slashed amongst those being 
Ferris (2), McGuire (2), Ward (2), 
D. Dobbin, Debney, Hannan, F.L. 
Bowes, Frawley, Grice, Robinson, 
Rogers and Finn. 

Even so late in the season new 
members continue to join up the 
latest recruits being Richard Landers 
and Derek Molloy. Keep a coming 
fellahs. 

The handicap season will finish 
with a 40 yards Handicap on the 
24th June and the Club and A Grade 
Championships heats will be held on 
Tuesday, 1st July with finals on 
Thursday 3rd July. 

Aspirants for these titles can 
hand in their entries at an early 
date. 

Holder of the Club title is Dennis 
Wilson who won from ex-world 
champion John Devitt with Bryan 
Mortensen in third place. Dennis put 
in a welcome appearance during the 
month, but as he is out Gymea Bay 
way it is a wee bit difficult to get 
into town. He hopes to take his 
place on the Championship board if 
possible. 

Carl Phillips Jnr. (son of Carl 
former Club Champion 1957-58 vin¬ 
tage) partnered Gordon Salier in a 
Brace Relay but were relegated into 
second place in the final. 

We will not be seeing Bruce 
Cameron in action for a while; he is 
deserting us for the warmth of the far 
North. Keep in touch, Bruce. 

Before racing commenced our Club 
Chairman Jim Comans announced that 
the Club Committee had conferred 
Honorary Life Membership upon 
Arthur McCamley and yours truly. It 
was received with an ovation by the 
members and congratulations were the 
order of the day.

O'DEA CLUB CHAMPION 


by Peter Ashby 

Tattersall’s Club Handball champ¬ 
ionship finals in all grades produced 
excellent handball but no surprises. 

Winners were Michael O’Dea, Club 
Championship, Bill Sellen, A Grade 
and Bill Blakemore, B. Grade. 

Playing devastating handball our 
reigning Club champion held his title 
by defeating ex-champ Norman Rogers 
21-12 and 21—11 and took his per¬ 
sonal tally of titles to four in the past 
five years. 

The vanquished Norman Rogers 
stated the case truly by his impromptu 
statement, “What have I got to do to 
win a point! I was never in the call”. 

Except for the first ten points of 
each game this summation was true 
enough. In the early part of each 
game Norman was close enough to 
level pegging but in the final stages 
it was all Michael and he came away 
to win in straight games. 

Both players were suffering from a 
creaking knee joint, Norm with an 
old football injury with Michael’s 
sustained while playing touch football 
with his family. It was never revealed 
whether Mrs. O’Dea or one of the 
twins was responsible. 

The two games were hard with 
Norm relying on the occasional rocket 
barrage for points but Michael’s 
defence seldom wavered and he was 
never trailing by more than two points 
at any stage. 

He is a worthy champion and the 


player who removes his crown will 
know he has played handball. 

A Grade A Repeat 

Bill Sellen repeated his win of 
three years ago to take out another 
A Grade title. He accounted for the 
very promising John Mclnerney in 
successive games. 

It was easily the most interesting 
clash of the night not only by virtue 
of its closeness of scoring during 
play but because both players were 
evenly matched with each favouring 
hard, low angled shots. 

Neither player was able to set up 
a big early lead and coast to a victory 
as it meant fighting for points right 
through each game. Many of the 
winners earned a round of applause 
from the appreciative gallery who 
closely followed each move on the 
court. 

The deciding factor was Bill’s 
experience gained from many tourna¬ 
ment wins in the past, experience 
which produces steadiness under pres¬ 
sure in tense matches. The final score 
was 21-16 in the first game and 
21-19 in the second. 

John is to be congratulated on a 
fine effort in only his second year of 
tournament play in Tattersall’s and a 
big improvement will no doubt be 
evident in future matches. 

Bill Sellen was very nearly 
scratched from the series because he 
could not meet a deadline set for 


finalising the first round matches 
because of an injury to a heel liga¬ 
ment. Determination won through 
for Bill. 

B Grade Winner A Natural 

Continuing phenominal improve¬ 
ment displayed earlier in winning 
the O’Dea Novice Championship Bill 
Blakemore won the B Grade title in 
straight games from Charlie Griffiths, 
last year’s winner of the most 
improved player award. 

Bill displayed a coolness usually 
seen only in players of long experience 
and because of this quality he was 
able to maintain his usual pattern of 
accurate placement shots. The games 
were close and there were times when 
Charlie could have broken through to 
give him a chance of victory but Bill 
was able to re-assent his control of 
play. 

He eventually won 21-16 and 21-19 
while never appearing to lose his 
confidence. 

After the game his confidence 
remained high. When congratulated on 
his win with the forecast that he 
would win the 1976 A Grade champ¬ 
ionship Bill added “and the 1977 Club 
Championship.

Thanks are due to the prize donors,

Trophy, this year’s Club Champion¬ 
ship, to Steve Blau and Bill Hannan.

This year’s winner of the most

Royal Day at Royal Sydney in May 

by Os Bates 


Eager golfers enjoyed the fine ^.getting ready for an 8 week holiday 


course and conditions of our visit to 
Rose Bay. 

Scores were good and popular 
Ray Lenehan played with Steve 
Darnoc to be the winners of the 
fourball with 46 points — a good 
effort. 

Three couples scored 45 points:- 
R. Everett and J. Parkinson, F. Fisher 
and G. Cummings, B. Edson and L. 
Barry. Fisher and Cummings were the 
countback winners. 

Angus Foster spreadeagled the field 
to win the member’s singles with 40 
points - playing off 10 it was out¬ 
standing. No doubt he’ll take his card 
back to his parent handicapper for 
revision. He is a keen sportsman 
Tattersall’s Club can be proud of. 

Runners-up were B. Edson with 
39 points and sweet, swinging pro¬ 
fessional golfer, B. Swinbourne scored 
37. Jack McCarthy’s 20 metre putt 
stayed “out” on the edge of the 18th 
or he would have scored 38. 
G. Cummings equalled Jack’s score 
of 37 too. 

Visitors winner A. Worsley with 
38 points praised the condition of the 
course - this we agree was excellent. 

A special hand clap for Newcastle 
members who came all the way to play 
at Rose Bay. Terry Smith and smiling 
Mai Woolford had a great game with 
K. Hewitt and J. Kirkham. Hope they 
can come along more often to the 
Sydney golf days. 

I NOTICED ... Alan David looking 
his immaculate happy self ... Ernie 
Bacon trying to hide his scorecard 
(which is very unusual) ... David 
Jackson enjoying the day but not his 
score ... great supporter, Arthur 
O’Connor with a near handicap 33 
points ... Brian Maher riding a putt in 
with all the action of a bowler ... our 
“quiet” new Golf Secretary, Rod 
Fisher, not missing anything of the 
happenings of the day ... Ted Peoples 
a happy man taking a ball from 
Pymble member Alan Lequesne ... 
John Cameron “buried” out of sight 
in a bunker, but he came out smiling 
... Len Tosh, one of our really copy¬ 
book golfers partnering Alan 
Greathead in a vain bid to win their 
game ... Golf President, Ian Bell 


scoring 42 points with Frank Magnus 
to “win the money” from Peter 
Oliver and David Cameron ... the 
Thorpe, Kingsmill v Sykes and Jarvis 
match was a good fun game ... I 
partnered that sailing man Kevin 
McCann to oppose Robert Pfafflin 
and Phil Meagher... it was a wonderful 
game with Robert and Phil scoring 
25 points in the outward run. The 
game from the 9th onward was played 
in great “spirits” ... ask that legal man, 
Phil Meagher and he’ll give you the 
details ... so long, see you at 
PENNANT HILLS on 10TH JUNE.
