Said one of our prominent 
members “You waste your time 
writing a ‘Chairman’s message’. 
Nobody reads it”.I replied “Yes they 
do”. Said my eloquent friend “How 
many letters did you receive when you 
wrote articles on racing for the 
magazine?” I replied “About 300” and 
he asked “How many do you receive 
in respect of Chairman’s message” to 
which I answered “Actions speak 
louder than words”. You will recall 
that in a previous message I stated that 
the husband and wife dining at 
Tattersall’s Club twice a month would 
save in 12 months the member’s annual 
subscription. The same applies to 
members who lunch regularly or bring 
friends with them, that in racing 
parlance is percentage thinking. I am 
now happy to report that Andy the 
maitre’d of the Dining Room requires 
six more tables and an additional 
waitress. The present usage of the 
Dining Room is the best for years. 
Please keep it up! 

I feel the following quotation is 
worth repeating. An eminent 
American, Duncan Hines, appraising a 
wine and food dinnner wrote. “If the 
soup had been as warm as the wine, if 
the wine had been as old as the turkey; 
and if the turkey had a breast like the 
waitress, it would have been a splendid 
dinner”. This is an entirely different 
standard to our own Epicurean dinners. 
These are wonderful evenings, and the 
atmosphere is one of friendship where 
members quickly get to know one 
another. If you are wise you won’t 
miss out, just drop a line to Vic Vadas 
care of the Club stating you are 
interestered and Vic will make the rest 
easy for you. 

Prominent legal identity, Charles 
Robinson, a daily user of the Club 
had a few terse words to say to me 
about the use of the second floor on 
Saturdays. The result is that members 
may now attend the Club on 
Saturdays until 5.00 p.m. in casual 
dress, that is neat sports clothes and 
prior to going to the football, cricket 
or races may enjoy a swim, game of 
snooker etc. whilst the second floor 
buffet is open for a hot meal, pies, 
sandwiches and beverage. 

Your Committee has recommended 


that all members living within a radius 
outside 100 kilos from the G.P.O. pay 
an annual fee of $75-00. However, as 
we operate under the Tattersall’s Club 
Act 1888 it is necessary to have this 
adopted at a General Meeting by the 
creating of a new type of member 
known as “Overseas, Interstate and 
Country members”. 

Just as we are sailing the Club on 
an even keel there is a 6.4 increase 
made in respect of wages. Again being 
a percentage man (I must write more 
articles on how to beat the books for 
you) the 6.4 is a misnomer. To this 
must be added the increase in Pay Roll 
Tax, the increase in the amount 
payable for Worker’s Compensation 
plus the increase on the 17.5 loading 
for four week’s annual leave. In short, 
the 6.4 increase is going to cost the 
Club approximately $40,000 over 
and above the present out goings. 
Last y ear our wage bill increased by 
$133,000 without the addition of 
an employee. The above is not a bad 
start for 1976. Do you know a better 
way to increase unemployment? 
However, your Committee will not 
drag the cross. We will pick it up, carry 
it on our shoulders and face the 
challenge. 

I have received a few letters about 
the resignation of Les Dury, our Hall 
Porter. The only thing that matters is 
what are the facts, so let us have them. 
For many years we have had three 
telephonists working shifts from 7.30 
a.m. until 11.30 p.m. at a cost 
exceeding $18,000 per year. 

We have transferred the 
switchboard to the room adjacent to 
front desk where it will be operated by 
twoswitch girls 7.30 a.m. to 9.30 p.m., 
which, with the aid of the Hall Porters, 
will cut out an overlap and overtime 
plus penalty rates and a reduction in 
wages of approximately $10,000 a 
year. 

This necessitates the Hall Porters 
working to a roster, which Les was not 
keen to do, and he tendered his 
resignation. This was received with 
regret because he was a good and 
faithful employee. 

However, your Committee is 
elected to serve the members, and,

Continued from page 2 
whilst we insist on excellent 
conditions and full courtesy to the 
staff, let it be rembered that so long as 
I am your Chairman the interest of 
maintaining the Club for the benefit of 
members on a proper economical basis 
is paramount. 

Your Club Room has been 
described by a visiting English architect 
as equal to the best of its type in 
Europe. This room must be used. Up 
to the mid sixties the Swimming Club 
held its Annual Ball in the Club Room, 
black tie and lots of cases of white tie 
and tails. The band rostrum was where 
the spectators now sit to watch the 
snooker and the dance floor between 
the centre pillars. What a picturesque 
spot to hold wedding receptions, 
birthday parties and large private 
functions. Especially with parking 
facilities that are now available. Your 
Committee is taking all steps to see 
that full use is made of this valuable 
space. 

I know this message will not please 
every member of Tattersall’s as the 
membership comprises men who are 
grandfathers, men who are fathers and 
the balance who for want of a better 
word could be described as sons —a big 
generation gap between the three. The 
young look to the future; they are full 
of plans, all relating to tomorrow which 
unfortunately sometimes never comes. 
The old look back trying to live in the 
pastand the past becomes moreand more 
present to them. Where the members of 


the “glorious present” and to do this we 
need the co-operation of every member 
- as the philosopher Lavell said, “The 
greatest good we can do for others is 
not to give them what we have, but 
show them how much they have to 
give”. 

With every good wish, 

J.V. Comans, Chairman.

NAVY COMES TO THE 
RESCUE 

Once again the close attachment 
between two of Sydney’s oldest 
institutions, Sydney Hospital and 
Tattersall’s, has achieved a significant 
advance. 

Kanematsu-Gosho, (Japan), celebra¬ 
ting the 40th Anniversary of the 
Kanematsu Memorial Institute of 
Sydney Hospital presented the Sydney 
Eye Hospital with an ultra sensitive 
electron microscope with a magnifying 
capability of 500,000 times and valued 
at $50,000. 


A problem of installation soon 
became apparent and Sydney Hospital 



Mike Turner 


contacted the Royal Australian Navy’s 
Research Laboratory at Rushcutter’s 
Bay, Sydney. 

Here Tattersall’s came into the 
picture through popular member Mike 
Turner who leads the RANRL Mine 
Warfare Group. 

Acting closely with Sydney Eye 
Hospital officers the problem was 
solved and a world first chalked up to 
Mike Turner’s team. 

The rewards: A patent is pending 
for the design and Mike has been 
elected a Life Member of Sydney 
Hospital.

WINING, DINING & SOCIAL 


That irrepressible and irresistible 
Bill Band was the genial host to a 
merry “Band” of TattersalPs cohorts 
and their charming ladies, amongst 
whom were Os. Bates, Norm Burston, 
John Cameron, John Rush, Brian 
Gapes, Stan Swain and Sam Block at a 
preview screening of Liza Minelli and 
Gene Hackman in “Lucky Lady”. 

The show was greeted with 
tumultous applause and filmgoers are 
certainly in for a treat when it is 
released. 


Happy was the silver wedding of 
Frank and Patricia Kennedy and 
around the table with fun and 
happiness were their four sons and two 
daughters-in-law.

their wives. 

* * * 

Dr. Tom Axcell’s graduation was 
suitably celebrated by the M.H. Pike

Well known radio, television and 
racing personality, Ian Craig’s birthday 
was celebrated at a party which

Of course, Mrs. Patricia Plimsoll cut 
the cake. 


Dr. Kevin Byers and wife Lil 
enjoyed birthday celebrations with 
Peter and Marie Jean and their 
charming daughter Helen and sons 
Richard and Ian. 


GARMENTS FOR GARRY 

Having a regular work out on the 
Third Floor is regarded as a “must” by 
busy members whatever their craft, 
trade, profession or industry might be. 

To go through the list of 
occupations reads like a “Who’s Who” 
— if we haven’t got one, it does not 
exist. 

Prominent among the callings are 
those in the clothing industry - we 
hesitated to say “rag trade”. 

And amongst the budding 
Australian trade entrepeneurs 
marketing not only nation wide but 
overseas is Garry Solomon. 

And how conclusive is his 
enthusiasm is featured in the trade 
name he has established — “Mr. Garry”. 


Garry was born in Sydney in 1933 
and is a Scots product having 
matriculated in 1950. 

After a brief retail experience 
Garry joined the clothing firm of 
David Soloman and Sons created by 
his grandfather. 


In 1972 Garry commenced business 
in his own company producing “Mr. 
Garry” slacks and shorts. 



GARRY SOLOMON 


In connection with his expanding 
business Garry travels overseas at least 
twice a year, visiting the main fashion 
centres and studying the latest trends 
whilst promoting his own exports. 

Garry is married, with one daughter, 
whilst his late father, Hyman 
was a Tattersall’s Club member, as is 
his brother, Ross. 

Garry is an ardent follower of the 
Eastern Suburbs “Roosters” and for 
some years played Rugby League and 
was alongside team mate Sir Nicholas 
Shehadie in the City and Suburban 
cricket competition. 

But now he is more content with 
social tennis and limbering up under 
the watchful eye of Sam Block on 
the Third.

6. Place filled capsicums in saucepan,

To serve four persons. 

NOTE: 

Sour cream may be added when serving if 
desired. 

To complement the Club’s 
extensive menu with these special 
dishes are the following selection of 
wines: 

ORLANDO BLUE RIBBON SPAETLESE 
1974 

This is a late-picked wine, the grapes being 
left on the vine considerably longer than at 
other times — often up to four and six 
weeks later, it contains a tremendous 
density of fruit, enormous flavour, extreme 
grapiness of character and matures 
extremely well. The grapes are thoroughly 
ripened, have high Baumes and have started 
to shrivel. This wine gets its character from 


the high natural sugar content plus the fruit 
of the variety which is retained by the 
fermentation process. 

LINDEMAN’S WATERVALE RHINE 
RIESLING 1968 

These wines tend to be more mature than 
many of the fresh Rhine Rieslings and they 
have quite a marked flavour, very deep 
middle palate and a smooth, soft finish. The 
show records of the 1966 to 1971 vintages 
are very impressive. These vintage dry white 
are produced from selected Rhine riesling 
grapes grown at Watervale, South Australia, 
and bottled shortly after vintage to retain 
the original fresh, fruity flavour of the 
grape. A crisp, delicate riesling with a 
marked varietal character. 

ORLANDO BAROSSA RHINE RIESLING 
(MOSELLE STYLE) 1970 
Made from specially selected Rhine Riesling 
grapes which have been allowed to get a 
little riper on the vines. It is vintaged 
according to the same process as used for 
the Barossa Rhine Rieslings and, in fact, is 
much the same style of wine, except with a 
slightly richer flavour with greater depth 
and a little sugar on the middle palate. This, 
of course, appeals to a number of palates 
who don’t like to have their wines bone dry. 

PENFOLD’S COONAWARRA CLARET 
BIN 128 1968 & 1969 
Made entirely from shiraz grown on 
Penfold’s vineyard at Coonawarra in South 
Australia. They are a most interesting line of 
wine in that the wine varies enormously. 
The 1969 reflects a rain fall through vintage 
at Coonararra. The wine is very clean, 
pleasant, quite austere, but without the 
fruit normally associated with the style of 
wine, and it will mature well as one of those 
lighter rather high acid Coonawarra wines. 
In contrast the 1968 was produced with a 
rich fruit and shows the regional character 
of Coonawarra. The 1968 is a beautiful rich 
wine, tremendously appealing when young 
even, because it was so beautifully put 
together, superbly balanced and with so 
much complexity of fruit; a wine that 
would live for many years. 

LINDEMAN’S ROUGE HOMME CLARET 
1964 

A vintage dry red of great quality, produced 
from shiraz grapes grown at Lindeman’s 
Rouge Homme vineyards in Coonawarra. It 
is matured in small oak casks prior to 
bottling, approximately eighteen months 
after vintage for ultimate sale at about five 
years of age. These vineyards were planted 
in 1908 and have consistently produced 
wine which is full of flavour, light and 
delicate with a fine clean tannin astringency 
on the palate. 

PENFOLD’S ST. HENRI 1970 
One of the top two Penfold’s wines and 
certainly one of the most celebrated wines 
in Australia. Traditionally, a set styled wine 
with a slight stalky character. The St. Henri 
has shown a great deal of variations from 
vintage to vintage although basically they 
have all had good fruit, a pleasant Rose, 
showing a lot of flavour and balanced to a 
very clean finish.

His 40 years of froth and bubble... 


A lot of beer has flowed 
under the bridge since Ted 
Wales took over the taps of 
the Robin Hood Hotel at 
Charing Cross. 

In December last he 
celebrated his 40th year as a 
publican which he believes 
must be close to a record 
among the State’s hoteliers. 

“It’s been a long time,’’ he 
said. “It’s just occurred to me 
that I’m now serving the sons 
and even the grandsons of a 
lot of my original customers. 

“I remember when I first 
started here beer was sixpence 
a middy, so that gives you a 
fair idea how time flies and 


prices rise”. 

Ted, now 70, remembers 
most of his customers by their 
first names. 

And he remembers the 
depression years when most 
hotels put on free counter 
lunches. 

“Nothing flash,” he said. 
“Just pies and sandwiches 
because even hotels were 
having a tough time in those 
days”. 

The Robin Hood has bars 
with appropriate names— the 
Maid Marion, the Sherwood 
Bar and The Merry Men. 

Congratulations Ted, on a 
great career.

SAY “CHEESE” 

Perhaps the best known of 
Tattersall’s amateur photographers is 
Max Sernack who joined the Club in 
November, 1958. 

We are indebted to Max for many 
of the photographs appearing in 
Tattersall’s Club magazine, and in 
payipg this tribute we must 
acknowledge that it is the only payola 
he receives, as he does it all at not 
inconsiderable expenses and often 
inconvenience to his good self. 

Max was educated at Sydney Boys’ 
High School. 

He saw service in World War II in 
Egypt, Palestine, New Guinea, 
Morotai, Borneo and was discharged 
with the rank of Captain. 

He is a past president of the 
Garment Industries Association of 
NSW and played a leading part in 
cementing the major producing states 
NSW and Victoria into a Federal body. 

For many years Max has taken an 
active part in the promotion of social 
activities within the Club. 

He is an Administrative Officer of 
the Swimming Club. 


Anyone interested in 
advertising in Tattersall’sClub 
Magazine is invited to contact 
Miss Jan Carslake.

EAST R.U. NEW HEAD 

In our earliest Kingdergarten we 
were told that “King Bruce of Scotland 
flung himself down in a mood to 
think” as he watched a spider weaving 
a web. 

Whatever the answer to the spider, 
we can now say that down through 
the ages the name of Bruce as a leader 
and thinker has been preserved, even 
in the Rugby Union season of 1976 
when that great Tattersall’s identity, 
Bruce Chiene, was elected as President 
of Eastern Suburbs. 

Good luck, Bruce, but don’t let it 
interfere with your first floor activities.

A selection of a variety of menus is now available for members' 
wishing to hold private functions within the Club. These 
comprehensive menus at reasonable cost, will cover members 
needs to cater for small, medium or large functions. 

To assist members in their selection, the Secretary will be only too 
happy to discuss your requirements. All bookings should be 
directed to the General Office and by contacting the Secretary's 
Private Secretary appointments can be arranged. 


APPOINTMENT OF 
ACCOUNTANT 

The administrative staff of 
Tattersall’s has been augmented by the 
appointment of Norman C. Smith as 
accountant. 

Mr. Smith was formerly the 
Assistant State Secretary of the R.S.L. 
(N.S.W. Branch). 

He served with the R.S.L. for 13 
years and was regarded as a dedicated 
and outstanding official. 

Mr. Smith joined the R.S.L. in 
1963 after being an accountant with 
Hoyts Theatre. 

With the R.S.L. he was chief 
Accountant and more recently Assistant 
State Secretary. 


He is a member of the Sutherland 
Bowling Club. He has also been 
President of the Sutherland R.S.L. for 



Norman Smith 


a period of three years and was also a 
Foundation Member of the N.S.W. 
R.S.L. Bowling Club, Sutherland. 

He is married with a family of two 
girls and one boy. 

During the war he served as a 
Sergeant with various signal units in 
New Guinea at both Milne Bay and 
Port Moresby. 

As a young man Norman was a 
very competent cycle racer and in 
later years has become a very 
enthusiastic and crafty bowler. 

He was awarded Life Membership 
of the R.S.L. on 20th November, 
1971, for his outstanding service to 
the League. 


T.J. CRIED A SECOND TIME 

When we settled down to watch 
Mike Willeesee’s “This is your life” 
little did we expect to be beautifully 
portrayed the life story of our 
Tattersall’s identity, leading horse 
trainer over interminable years, the 
voluble, successful, often times dour, 
but the doyen of all trainers, Tommy 
Smith, or “T.J.” as he is universally 
known. 

On to the TV scren came all his 
private life from birth, his family, 
break into racing, and the day on 
which he first cried, when Tullock 
won the Brisbane Cup. 

And as the gripping story unfolded, 
we met all his closest - wife Valerie, 
the touching and poignant moment of 
his beautiful daughter Gai’s purposeful 
visit from London — and that brought 
tears — the second time that T.J. wept. 

How human he is — as you and I. 

And we can never forget the great 
names that have been overlooked for 
Hollywood’s epics. Such gallivanting 
heroes as brothers Ernie and Dick, 
Percy Sykes, Ray Selkrig and George 
Mulley. 

But the one who almost stole the 
show was Hollywood’s overlooked 
swashbuckling heart-throb, real Errol 
Flynn type talent lost to posterity, our 
own Tom Clune. 


THREESCORE AND TEN 

It is widely known that Noel 
Simpson owns more horses - trotters, 
pacers, gallopers and trotting sires - 
than any other person in Australia, but 
few would realise he is 70 years old. 

Noel’s birthday came up on 
January 11 and family and friends 
flew in from various parts of the world 
for the celebration. 


JIM'S ORDEAL 

On a happy cruise in the South 
Pacific, cartoonist colleague, Jim 
Russell, creator of “Mr. and Mrs. 
Potts”, took ill. 

He was taken ashore when the ship 
reached Port Vila. 

Here it became necessary for an 
RAAF mercy flight as Jim’s condition 
deteriorated and local doctors had to 
operate on him. 

The medical crew aboard the 
RAAF Hercules had to carry out a 
further operation on Jim before he 
could be flown to Sydney. 

After about three hours his 
condition improved sufficiently for 
the flight. 

“He slept for most of the journey, 
but he was the only one who did” was 
the crew’s laconic report. 

And we are glad to record a great 
recovery for our smiling Jim who has 
done so much through the years to 
make millions laugh. 

CAPTIONS 

We received several commendations 
on a recent par, dealing with 
comparison of chances of winning a 
soccer pool and of being murdered 
which we headed “Odds and Ends”. 

Tony McSweeney has brought 
under our notice another captivating 
caption which Tony thinks may have 
“got under the guard ” of many readers. 

That most competent racing 
journalist, T.V. identity and horse 
owner John Curtis of the Daily 
Telegraph, wrote the story of Kikuyu’s 
win at Canterbury which incidentally 
landed a bet of $60,000 to $8,400. 

Those knowing of the stress caused 
many gardeners by the rapid growth 
and expansion of the Kikuyu grass and 
its incursions on a well kept lawn 
would like his caption “Kikuyu bets 
not forlorn”.

SAMMY BLOCK- GREAT 
BLOKE, GREAT SPORTSMAN 


A new member enquiring for Mr. 
Samuel Block might well meet with 
blank looks, but if he asked for Sam 
Block or even, Sammy, he would 
certainly be greeted with understanding 
smiles. 

For those who have joined our 
ranks, say in the past five years, for it 
is that long since we recorded Sam’s 
background in these columns, one 
might well ask “what makes Sammy 
tick”? 

Sam joined Tattersall’s in 1931 and 
has always been an ardent worker in 
the Club’s interests, without any blare 
of trumpets, and the Committee saw 
fit in May last to accord him the 
highest accolade — Honorary Life 
Membership. 

At Crown Street School, from 
whence came many of Australia’s 
best sportsmen, Sam was captain of 
the school and of football for three 
years, representing NSW in Schoolboys’ 
Rugby Union. He could run very 
close to “evens” and from 1925 to 
1930 was champion of the Corinthian 
AAC over 100, 220 and 440 yards, 
and in 1928 won the Club Decathion 
title. 

The East Sydney Memorial Cup 
came to him in 1926, but probably 
his best performance was a dash over 
75 yards in 7.4 seconds, though Sam 
wryly claims the timekeeper must have 
had an itchy finger. 

He was truly an all rounder. 

He was taught boxing by 
champions Matt Wells and Harry 
Stone, and mixed in those days with 
such famous gladiators as Lew 
Edwards, Jackie Green, Jamito and 
Theo Burns. 

Sam took part in a number of 
contests, some of which he won, and 
in a number of others he confesses 
with a twinkle in his eye, he took 
some good hidings. Still he got a lot of 
fun and made a lot of friends in his 
association with the manly art. 

In helping to launch Tattersall’s 
Handball Club he became its first 
secretary in 1932. 

Officialdom did not cramp his 
playing style, and from 1933 to 1939 
he was the Club champion on four 
occasions. 


He has passed his knowledge on to 
many others, and today he is as keen 
as ever to bring on the younger players. 

Though not in Olympic class as a 
swimmer, as a youth Sam’s enthusiasm 
and consistency carried him far in 
Club contests, and he took the Dewar 
Cup, forerunner of the Native Son 
Trophy, outright, by winning it in 
1934-35, and 1935-36, after being 
runner up in 1933-34. 

Though competitive dominoes 
appear to have lapsed in the Club, 
temporarily we hope, it once carried 
annual competitions attracting many 
entries. 

In partnership with the late Percy 
Hunter in doubles, Sam comprised a 
redoubtable combination which made 
them champions of both Tattersall’s 
and the Civic Clubs. 

Horses have always been part of 
Sam’s make-up, and this came from 



Sam Block 

his father who was one of the finest of 
the pony owner trainers. He had many 
first rate ponies, including the 
champion Signet, winner of 39 races 
carrrying up to 12 stone. 

Sam, too, owned and raced horses, 
including Persian Fire, Cayenne, and 
Miss Fluency, all good winners. 

Nor did he confine himself to 
owning horses, as he rode winners as 
an amateur in the country. 

Here is a story not generally known 
about how Sam became an official in 
the Third Floor Athletic Dept., even 
unto being one of “the Gestapo”. 

We hopefully trust he will excuse 
its telling. 

In 1941 Sammy joined the A.I.F. 
and -as a member of the Water 
Transport unit saw service in New 
Guinea and the North. 


In 1944 he suffered a war illness 
and for nearly two years he was in 
hospital prior to discharge in 1946. 

Even then he was a very sick man 
and seemed to Swimming Club 
officials to have the idea that no one 
wanted him, and he had lots of chips 
on his shoulders. 

The then officials jollied him over 
this and insisted that he help them 
out in running the Club. 

Sam was persuaded and from that 
day became his old cheery self, up to 
his eyes in Club interests and his 
summing up of the situation speaks for 
itself. 

“I was really saved from myself. 
Anything I have since done for 
Tattersall’s Swimming and Handball 
Clubs has been repaid a thousand 
times by the members and officials 
who will never realise what they really 
have done for me”. 

During his hospitalisation Sam 
learned weaving as part of his 
rehabilitation. This has remained a 
hobby and his tartan scarves are 
something over which to enthuse. 

In addition, few Scotsmen can 
equal his knowledge of the history and 
make up of tartans. 

Today as secretary of Tattersall’s 
Amateur Swimming Club, he follows 
in the footsteps of his friend, the late 
Jack Dexter, who gave to the Third 
Floor an example of sportsmanship 
and administrative ability which Sam 
hopes to emulate. 

Though wrapped in officialdom 
there is none less official than Sam, a 
prime exemplar of service to his Club 
and to his fellow man. 


BILLY BUNTER 

Tommy Smith recalled his 
childhood stories in the Gem and 
Magnet. 

He remembered the rotund 
character, Billy Bunter and because 
Don Storey in those days and prior to 
his diet, had a rather big tummy — it 
followed that Don’s colt was called 
Billy Bunter — but Don’s slim like 
figure of today makes such a story 
“History” as another of Don’s horses 
is called.

ALSO A BOWLER 



Len Burke 


Len Burke is one of the best opinion bookies around. 

That means he does not stick strictly to a book, like Digger Lobb or Jack Muir, 
nor does he go to the other extreme as a gambling bookie like Bill Waterhouse 
or Terry Page. In short, he backs his own judgement. 

His turnover this year will be close to $11 million. It puts him, with Les 
Tidmarsh, high in the rank of bookies. 

Len was once the “leviathan, dashing, million-quid leader of the ring”. 

Now, at 54, he is content to take things a little easier, to head north to his 
motel for some fishing. 

His father, Monty, raced bush horses and had pubs in the country. 

Instead of doing his homework, young Len studied the form. He took out a 
licence when 17, only to be banned when his age was discovered. 

Reinstated in 1945, he rose in the game before bookies had boards, when they 
shouted the odds in gravel voices and suffered ruptures. 

He says: “It’s not a bed of roses any more. The whole atmosphere has changed 
rapidly in 10 years. 

“The professional punters often have bigger staffs than we have. 

“I wanted to be the biggest gambler, the best bookie. I was. There were kudos, 
recognition, and big bad debts. 

“Yes, racing has been good to me. And there’s the egotism. But there’s no 
superannuation when you quit, nothing”. 

He has seven children - “that’s my ambition, to provide for them - and a pet 
galah, Joey, who says: ‘Six-to-four the field’ ”. 

And Len plays bowls — and how! 

LOOKOUT, “ 


KEN REID IS A CHAMPION 
OF RED AND WHITES 

Ken Reid, national Sales Manager 
and Branch Administrator for 
McWilliam’s Wines, is dedicated to 
furthering the wine industry. 

Leaving Sydney High School, Ken 
joined McWilliam’s 43 years ago as a 
delivery clerk. He was made works 
manager in 1941, general works 
manager in 1946 and NSW manager a 
year later. 

In 1956 Ken was elected to the 
executive committee of the Wholesale 
Wine and Brandy Merchants’ 
Association of NSW and has been 
president of that body for the last 
eight years. 

Ken became a member of the 
Australian Wine Board in 1963 and 
still serves on the Board. 

He has always been an “industry” 
man and has been of great service to 
the industry. 

An instance of this service was his 
suggestion of a Tariff Board Inquiry 
into the duty on corks. 


When this became a reality he 
prepared and conducted the case for 



Ken Reid 


the industry, which resulted in the 
complete removal of duty, thus saving 
the industry hundreds of thousands of 
dollars. 

In his more active days Ken was a 
keen athlete, playing Rugby at school 
and later continued at tennis for many 
years. He took to golf seriously at one 
stage, but now only plays socially. 
Today his preferences are for horse 
racing and league football. 

Ken is also a member of the A.J .C., 
and St. George Leagues’ Club, the red 
and whites. 

Ken and his charming wife, Bernice, 
lived at Kingsford for many years but 
now reside in one of the gracious 
homes in Lang Road, Centennial Park. 
Their only son, Peter, is with the 
Australian Mission to the United 
Nations in New York. 


Jim Whyte, part owner of Nook, 
and a great identity in Tattersall’s Club 
Bowling Club is being challenged for 
his title of “King of the Turf” by 
colleague Horace Abbott. 

In partnership with his father in 
law, Jack Mandel, they race the very 
promising Our Sharyn. 

They ran second to the flying 
machine Market Garden, but Jack was 
not too disappointed as he has also 


NOOK”! 

four shares in the son of Market 
Garden, the imported stallion King of 
Babylon which George Ryder secured 
some years back and even when he was 
at the time in his hospital bed. 

The Family Trophy raced for by 
the Third Floor swimmers was 
donated by Jack Mandel, and with 
Horace’s son, Adrian, they comprise a 
generous and sporting triumvirate.

BILLIARDS & SNOOKER 

by A.V. Miller 


Nominations for the 1976 Billiards 
& Snooker are now due. Members are 
reminded to obtain their entry forms 
at the main office. 

Last year’s tourneys were quoted as 
a grand success and we have no doubts 
1976 will provide our viewing 
members with plenty of exciting 
games from our vastly improved 
players. 

The Club’s Billiards and Snooker 
Committee has provided some very 
fine trophies for all events plus the 
lovely trophy given annually by our 
generous supporter Tom Powell. 

Then the Calcutta Sweep will again 
be conducted which gives added zip to 


the snooker event. 

Again the members should watch 
the closing date for these events. See 
page 11. 

AN EPIC 

A tremendous feat performed by a 
visitor, Warren Simpson, who is a past 
world champion amateur snooker 
player, in a friendly game against 
Bruce Cox who received 75 start at 
snooker. The game started Bruce 
potted two reds. Then Warren cleared 
the table making 115 break, something 
I have never seen done in my lifetime. 

And there was a very fortunate 
audience on the Second Floor to see 
the epic game. 


AGE OF CHIVALRY 

Doyen journalist David McNicoll, 
highly respected regular in the Club, 
must surely have a persuasive effect on 
the editors of Bulletin — his well 
nourished baby. 

There was Tattersall’s member and 
Bulletin editor Peter Coleman, now 
Chief Secretary of the N.S.W. 
government, who was succeeded by 



Peter Coleman 


another Tattersall’s colleague in the 
boss chair, Trevor Kennedy. 

Peter at 47 has really been about. 

Former Sydney Uni. lecturer, once 
a N.S.W. Supreme Courst barrister, 
master’s degree in economics from the 
London School of Economics, Peter 
also spent a year in the Sudan teaching 
English. 

And now the latest incumbent of 
Australia’s oldest portfolio, that of 
Chief Secretary. 


SNAKE GULLY CAPTAIN 
IN TOWN 

Captain and President of the Snake 
Gully Cricket team Paul O’Mally on 
his visits to Sydney always stays in 
Tattersall’s Club. 

Fie is a third generation Tattersall’s 
scion. His grandfather Hubert 
O’Shannessy has been a member since 
1963, his father Len O’Mally from 
January, 1964 to July, 1964 when he 
died in his forties, and Paul has been 
carrying on the tradition since. 

Where is Snake Gully? 

It is on Paul’s adjoining property 
“Nulty” outside Bourke, and the 
cricket team is registered with the 
Association as Snake Gully. 

We remember the Dad and Dave 
Series of wayback when each year the 
Snake Gully Cup was called in phantom 
fashion by “London to a brick” Ken 
Howard. 

The pitch is on a claypan and the 
adjoining valley hasa snake population. 

Paul says that the Snake Gully 
cricketers are never beaten until the 
last ball is bowled. 

Their fighting spirit is legendary, 
and, he says, is derived from the old 
axiom “snakes never die until 
sundown”. 

Paul was educated at St. Joeys and 
whilst there was in the second XI and 
won a G.P.S. competition. 

Paul was recently in Sydney for 
medical treatment having severed an 
artery in his leg following a fall from 


his horse when drafting a bullock out 
of the mob. 

With wife Helen they have four 
children. 

As his grandfather and father both 
AJC and STC members, and raced 
horses, it is fitting that Paul also takes 
an active part in racing. 

Apart from the Darling River, Paul 
has other watering holes including the 
Bourke R.S.L., Bowling and Golf 
Clubs, and whilst in Sydney he spends 
some of his time at the Manly Civic 
Club and Harbord Diggers. 

But his greatest interest is in Snake 
Gully. 

“I SHALL RETURN” 

For authenticity no member will 
doubt the credit status of colleagues 
like Peter Holohan, Jim McManus and 
Neville O’Neill. 

So they joined with well known 
Tattersall’s identity and artist, Ossie 
Bates at Randwick Races. 

Always the centre of a group with 
a magnetic story to tell Ossie Bates did 
not let the party down. 

But as he temporarily left to make 
a bet, it was of Ossie that they spoke. 

And so came to light a little known 
episode of the War, the Army of 
Occupation, General MacArthur, and 
our Ossie. 

Always with the twinkle in his eye, 
Ossie had prepared his mates for the 
meeting with the General. 

He said “I know the General well, 
we are on a Christian name basis, you 
watch me”. 

And as the General moved through 
the ranks the inimitable Ossie greated 
the General with “Hi, General!” 

And open mouthed and thoroughly 
beguiled, his mates heard the response, 
“Hi, Aussie”. 

And it is an historical fact this is no 
fabrication. 

BOOKMAKER'S TIP 
BACK IT IN THE LAST 

At the Kindred Club’s function 
ex-Treasurer and one time rails 
bookmaker, Barney Fay, applauded 
Chairman Jim Coman’s remarks. 

In that easy fashion apparently 
with which he was born, and not 
acquired, Jim held his audience to 
each quiver and comma. 

Said Barney “He speaks so 
and each time he hits the nail on the 
head”.

EPICUREANS’ POOLSIDE 
BARBECUE —GREAT SUCCESS 

On Sunday the 15th February, the 
Epicureans opened their 1976 Season 
“with a splash” at a poolside in 
Wahroonga. 

Altogether about 70 Epicureans 
attended, some driving a long way like 
the two Zappia couples and the 
Thorleighs from Cronulla, the 
Camerons from Connell’s Point, the 
Amys from Blakehurst, the 
McCamleys and the Tingwells from the 
Eastern Suburbs and the Clarks from 
Palm Beach — however, according to 
the general opinion their effort was 
well rewarded. 

Fine weather, lovely garden setting, 
excellent catering and an occasional 
splash in the pool — cool refreshing 
drinks very expertly served by our 
committee men and, above all, it was 
nice to be together again. 

Our next Dinner Meeting is planned 
for the 6th April and invitations will 
be sent out to all members and a 
notice will be displayed in the Club in 
the usual manner. All Club members 
and their ladies are welcome. 


NEXT GOLF DAY 
TO BE HELD

FRIDAY 
9th APRIL 


BOWLERS 

by Sol Green 

The curtain for 1975 was lowered 
when the annual Christmas Day meet 
was held at the Rose Bay Club on 
Thursday 18th December. 

As is our custom, the visitors on 
this day were the Presidents of those 
clubs where we had been entertained 
during the year. We have never had a 
full quota of these gentlemen, and by 
reason of the close proximity of the 
day to Christmas, we had as was to be 
expected one or two apologies. 

However we were happy to 
welcome those who joined us, and 
were able to introduce them to Stan 
Richardson, President of the Rose Bay 
Club. 

For many years we have always 
played host to a trio from City 




The Epicureans of Tattersall’s Club. 

Dear Member, 

If you are already a member of our Epicurean Club then please be advised 
that the fee for 1976 is now due. You are requested to complete the form 
below and return it with your cheque for $5.00. 

However, if you are not a member yet and wish to join the Epicureans, 
then you are requested to do likewise. 

The Epicurean’s committee has prepared an interesting and varied 
programme for 1976. Meetings will be held at about six weekly intervals — 
most of them in, but a few outside our Clubhouse. 

Notice of all meetings will be sent to all financial members as before. 

So you are invited to join us and take part with your lady and guests, if 
you wish, in our friendly, informal meetings and remember our motto “Good 
Food and Wine amongst Good Friends”. 

See you soon

Tattersall’s, and it was good to have 
their President Ron Young with us 
again. 

This is always a good day and 1975 
was no exception and the year ended 
on the happiest of notes. 

Since we began again in 1976 the 
weather man has been unkind with 
three days already washed out. This 
has not pleased the Committee as 
matches in the singles and Gordon 
Booth triples have had to be 
postponed, no games being played as 
yet (13th February). 


As previously announced, the 11th 
Turf Bowlers Carnival which begins on 
Sunday 14th March will be held in 
Canberra. It looks as if we may have a 
few of our “tops” in the party which 
should improve things in more ways 
than one. 

My scouts advise that Brisbane 
(holders), Newcastle (always tough), 
and City Tattersall’s (always very 
tough) will all be fielding their best, so 
the going won’t be easy, but don’t 
despair, Fuzz has promised to take his 
needle this year.

W.j. (Bill) ORME WAS KICKED IN THE HEAD 


Educated at Grafton High School, 
Bill Orme first commenced engineering 
at Sydney University where he was 
resident at St. Paul's College. 

Bill was kicked in the head playing 
football and amongst his many pals on 
the Third Floor, there are varying 
opinions as to the after effects. 

The immediate outcome was 
cessation of his Uni. engineering, a few 
months in hospital, and his return to 
Grafton where he was articled in law 
to Colin Pollack. 

Bill’s boss was a leading figure in 
the Clarence River Jockey Club and 
Bill, in his spare time, added up the 
tickets and calculated the odds on the 
Grafton manual tote. 

His National Service was spent in 
the Air Force at Newcastle, Richmond, 
and George’s Heights as a corporal, 
radar operator, and aircraft plotter. 

In 1955 Bill hitchhiked around 
Australia with a National Service pal, 
Bill Cronshaw, who is now business 
manager for Orson Welles and living in 
London. 

In 1957 he married Nedra, another 
Uni. acquaintance and came to Sydney 
in 1958 when he was admitted as a 
solicitor. 

In the same year Bill became a 
partner in Smithers, Warren and Lyons, 
now merged as Smithers Warren & 
Tobias. 

The Tobias section includes Robert, 
prominent swimmer on the Third 


Floor, and Robert’s dad who is a 
Senior Member of Tattersall’s. 

Bill specialised in commercial and 
taxation law, and restrictive trade 
practices and prices justification. 

With children arriving every 
eighteen months Bill filled in the time 
qualifying as an accountant. 

Bill and Nedra now have four 
children, John, Warwick, Kate and 
Alison. 

For the fourth time Bill and the 
children competed in the 1975 City to 
Surf Race. 

Their preparation covered five 
month’s training and over 1,000 miles 
of running. Nedra is extremely 
independent and exercises a strong 
influence on the family. 

She does not agree with early 
morning running, but as the team’s 
trainer, would lie in bed and think out 
tactics. 

In 1975 she travelled the distance 
of the City to Surf route four minutes 
faster — having found a short cut in 
the car. 

Bill was President in 1965 of 
Sydney Junior Chambei of Commerce 
when it hosted the World Congress of 
Junior Chamber International. 

He had numerous overseas trips 
bidding for the Congress. 

In particular Bill organised the 
instantaneous translation between 
England, Spanish and French with the 
United Nations and US. State 



Departments in Washington and 
ECAFE in Bangkok. 

As Australia emerged to the front 
in these negotiations prominent also 
was Anne Robson who headed and 
recruited the translators from around 
the world. 

She was later to become the wife of 
our Governor General. 

Bill became National President, 
World Legal Councillor and finally in 
1969 World Executive Vice-President 
of the Junior Chamber of Commerce. 
During that last year, he was 
responsible and negotiated extensions 
into Czechoslovakia, Indonesia and 
Malawi. 

In May last Bill was appointed by 
the Governor as Executive Member of 
the NSW Privacy Committee (having 
to resign from his legal firm and other 
directorships), to monitor and control 
privacy both in the public and private 
sectors. 

So perhaps a kick in the head at the 
right time can lead on to better and 
brighter experiences. 


THE VIRGIN ISLANDS 

Just a quarter of a century ago 
Roger McCloskey left these shores for 
overseas. 

And now after those 25 years 
Roger is back with lots of memories. 

He spent the time in Europe, 
Africa, the U.S.A., where he married, 
and the Caribbean. 

Mostly he lived in the U.S. Virgin 
Island St. Thomas where his six 
children were born. 

They are aged 5 to 13 and enjoy 
dual citizenship. St.Thomas is U.S. and 
Roger contacted the Australian Consul 
in New York and with his approval the 
young McCloskeys can have either 
Australian or U.S.A. passports until 
they are 18. 

Then they will have to decide and 
though they will have their own 
decisions to make, Roger will bet odds 
on they will be good old Aussies. 

Roger is a consulting engineer and 
went to Ashfield de la Salle and 
played R.U. with Sydney University. 
He also had a penchant for the 220 
and 440 hurdles both with the Uni. 
and Western Suburbs A.C. 

And the best part said Roger “We 
were home in time to celebrate my 
mother’s 90th birthday, and she 
enjoyed the champagne as well as any 
of us’’.

Pool Splashes 

by Sam Block 

STAR PERFORMERS SINCE LAST 
ISSUE WERE DEREK JACKSON WINNER 
OF DECEMBER-JANUARY POINT 
SCORE AND TED JOYE WHO TOOK OUT 
THE MONTHLY FOR JANUARY- 
FEBRUARY. 

Jackson’s score of 32 points out of 
the possible 36 was an outstanding 
performance as the handicapper had 
docked him three records during the 
month. John Fay was unlucky in 
bumping such a formidable opponent 
and was only V /2 points behind with 
consistent Bill Hannan in third place. 

Ted Joye, the poppa of Ian who 
won the Native Son Trophy last year, 
showed what pluck and grim 
determination can do in annexing the 
January—February trophy. 

Ted improved his handicap by 10 
seconds over six weeks, at the same 
time not only reducing his waistline 
but also his weight by 10 lbs. or 
metrically speaking 4 Vi kgs. 

The lads feel that we now have 
another of the famous lovable 
“George Goldie” image in our Ted and 
his win was a shining example to our 
younger stars. John McClean finished 
in second place (perhaps next month 
John) whilst Michael Frawley took the 
honours for third. 

Michael’s times and diving have 
improved at a great rate which suggest 
many wins in the near future. 

SILVER SHARPE TROPHY 

With half the season over Tony 
Salier with a clear lead of 7 points has 
left the field standing after a 
continuance of his December-January 


successes. The handicapper has not got 
his measure yet, though the way he is 
going at present nothing seems beyond 
him. 

A few seasons ago the “Silver 
Bullet” Russell Debney was always in 
the running, but his bulldog brother 
Bill is claiming the limelight with a 
score of 90 points and going great 
guns. Former leader Hugh Keller is still 
batting in fine style with a total of 88 
with John Nicholas, Gordon Salier and 
Peter Joseph all within striking 
distance. 

Lots of water will be forced into 
the scuppers ere the final result will be 
known. 

For the benefit of newcomers, 
events are held every Tuesday (heats) 
and Thursday (finals). 

JACK MANDEL FAMILY EVENT 
will take place each Thursday 
commencing April 15th seven events 
in all of Relays over 40 and 80 yards. 
What with the Bowes, Kings, Saliers, 
Dobbins, Joyes, Emanuels, Dinds, 
Debneys, Richards, Carpenters, 
Hannans, Keatings, McRoberts, Pages 
and Camerons I feel sure the pool 
habitues are in for some spectacular 
finishes. 

The sad news of the month was the 
passing of the wives of Col Bowes and 
Max Sernack, whilst a popular former 
member in the person of Gordon 
Boulton was laid to rest. 

David Dobbin who left for overseas 
has lost his prominent position on the 
ladder, but will still be a force to be 
reckoned with on his return. 

Tony Salier also leads the “Tom 
Powell” Trophy with 7 wins from 
Keller 6, Ferris and Nicholas 5Vi t 
McLelland, Dobbin and Bill Debney 5, 
whilst Hannan, Frawley, Russell 


Debney, Carpenter, Fay, Gordon 
Salier and Ken Tickle on 4. 

Doug (Hercules) Ferris seems to 
have fully recovered from his muscular 
ailment recording a win in the smart 
time of 18.3 secs, and amongst others 
in fine form were Hannan 20, Murray 
20-1, T. Salier 20-5, D. Barnett and B. 
Carpenter 20-6 and M. Kunkel 21 secs. 

Manifred Kunkel made a welcome 
re-appearance with a fine winning 
performance in 21 secs, whilst Paul 
Donohue also got back in the swim by 
winning his heat in 24-2. Another 
wanderer in Ski Club Chairman Basil 
Phillips arrived back after tussling 
with the Matterhorn. 

Newcomer to the ranks of the 
competitive swimmers was popular 
A.B.C. General Manager Talbot 
Duckmanton who received a well 
merited ovation on appearing on the 
starting blocks.

Tattersall’s Club Magazine 





r?r THE COOGEE PHENOMENON 


by Peter Ashby 

Those methodical readers of 
Tattersall’s magazine, judged by all 
discerning people as the leading club 
production in Australia, would by now 
have become familiar with a whole 
host of members, and sometimes their 
wives and friends, who have enjoyed 
the many Club facilities available, or 
who have excelled themselves in a 
variety of human endeavours. 

These readers who persevere with 
this article will read with interest, I 
hope, of the resurgence of handball 
activity in Coogee, a once great club, 
which to all intents and purposes was 
dead, but would not expire, would not 
give up its ghost, would not allow it to 
be said that the Coogee Handball Club 
would ever again be able to be 
represented in inter-Club contests or 
State titles. 

Coogee Handball Club will be 
represented in all contests in which 
they are eligible and they will not only 
play but they will field players and 
teams who will be hard to beat and 
who will also acquit themselves like 
good sportsmen in fair competition. 

This once great club could not field 
a team against Bondi Icebergs Club in 
the return match of two annual 
contests to decide the winner of the 
Gilesberg Trophy. Bondi became the 
winner of this much sought after 
trophy by default for 1975. 

But 1976 will be a different matter. 
Bill Moore, great stalwart of the 
Coogee Club, when giving this decision 
accurately summed up the position 
with the rejoinder “Bondi are only 


postponing the inevitable”. 

Coogee captain Wal Gray had 
another great year in 1975 fielding a 
quarter-finalist in the Tattersall’s Plate 
and winning the NSW State Doubles 
Championship with Frank Frankowski 
and Jim Campbell. 

He was confident to the last 
moment when the handball court at 
Coogee was the only part of the 
Coogee Baths standing undamaged 
after record high seas had caused 
devastation and almost irreparable 
destruction to the sports complex. Old 
players were lost to the Club and no 
new members were available for 
recruitment and almost everyone 
considered that this court where so 
many great players had performed 
with distinction, over so many years, 
would soon be razed or that it would 
be retired to an undeserved seclusion. 

It will never suffer any such 
ignominious end. The Club began 
organised competition in the early 
1930’s and it will now assuredly 
function well into the 20th century. 

Players of the calibre of Eddie 
Davis, Geoff Clifton-Smith, Bill 
Harrison and Wally Gray, all 
Tattersall’s Club members, will be 
replaced by handballers just as keen, 
just as competitive and probably their 
equal in ability. Present players who 
will undoubtedly return to the Club 
include Frank Frankowski, RonTubb, 
Charlie Robinson, Ron Rogers, Jim 
Campbell, Bill Moore, George Inman 
and a host of others. 

South Sydney Rugby League 
identities are responsible for the 


virtual rebirth of the Club. 

John O’Neill and Bob McCarthy, 
two greats of the Rugby League code, 
together with one of the trainers, 
George Motto, have secured a long 
lease of the baths and have 
commenced a reconstruction 
programme that is nearing completion 
and will make this venue for 
sportsmen one of the most popular on 
the coast. Handball will rate highly in 
the activities along with P.T., squash, 
swimming and running. 

Both John O’Neill and Bob 
McCarthy are two of the recent 
recruits to handball with Bob slightly 
shading big John at the moment. 
Practice and patience will improve 
Bob’s game immensely. 

Some practice games are so keenly 
contested that on a recent Sunday 
morning two protagonists found the 
pressure of play, the heat of the day 
and the closeness of the scores too 
much for them to remain calm. 
Following a heated verbal exchange 
about one player claiming too many 
points from doubtful shots, the 
exchange developed into a fistic one. 

Perhaps a natural tendency to argue 
evinced by both players led to this 
unethical development but it was soon 
finished and two flushed contestants 
soon cooled themselves in the pool. It 
must have caused some consternation 
at home to see dad return from a quiet 
game of handball sporting some facial 
bruising not usually associated with 
this sport. 

Just adds to the variety of this 
great game.

by Ken Finn 

Thanks to the kind invitation of 
Basil and Pam Phillips members of 
Tattersall’s Club Ski Club and their 
friends enjoyed a delightful evening 
in the Phillips’ home on Saturday, 21st 
February. 

Among the guests of the Ski 
Club were Ian McCloy and Larry 
Adler. Ian is a foundation, and very 
active member of Wirruna Ski Club in 
Perisher Valley where, it will be 
remembered, Tattersall’s skiers had a 
magnificent week test year. 

Larry is a well known ski instructor 
from Thredbo and the Chalet. 
Diametric views taken by Ian led to a 
lengthy and lively discussion with 
Larry during the evening to the delight 
of listeners. 

Also among the guests were Carol 
and Anita Candolin from Finland who 
came along with Arni and Seija 
Valkama; the Candolins will be 
returning to Finland soon. 

The weather which threatened all 
day very accommodatingly lifted and 
we could use the outdoors where with 
Basil as chef, we were all treated to 
a barbeque which certainly lived up to 
its billing as a gourmet’s delight. This 
was suitably lubricated by appropriate 
beverages. The delicious and exotic 
desserts wich followed were prepared 
by Pam who had the assistance of four 
delightful “slave girls” during the 
evening - three of the four lovely 
Phillips’ daughters Wendy, Jo-Anne 
and Sally; Susan being on her way 
home from Europe. 

Another of the highlights of the 
evening was the showing of movie 
films taken by members during their 
ski ventures, included amongst which 
was Philip King’s epic production of 
the Tattersall’s Ski Club Championships 
Slalom 1975 which was being 
thoroughly enjoyed by all when a 
technical difficulty occurred which 
prevented the completion of the 
showing. This was most unfortunate as 
some of the “stars” had not yet made 
their runs and these were known to be 
of a highly spectacular nature and 


certain to be of great educational value 
to the less experienced viewers. No 
doubt this much sought after film will 
become available for a future occasion 
when we will have the benefit of the 
lessons it offers. 

Once again the Ski Club wishes to 
thank the Phillips’ family for opening 
their charming and well equipped 
home to members and friends for the 
enjoyment of getting together and 
incidentally raising a very tidy sum to 
boost the Club funds. 

Members are reminded that their 
annual subscriptions to the Ski Club of 
$2.00 is due and payable. 

As previously mentioned in 
Tattersall’s Magazine and in a separate 
letter to members, our Ski Club has 
been given a block booking of Roslyn 
Ski Lodge at Thredbo from 3rd to 
10th July — this promises to be 
another great occasion and those 
wishing to go along (with wives if 
desired) are advised to let Jan Carslake 
in Tattersall’s office know as soon as 
possible. 


BIG NOTER 

Always a touch of humour pervades 
the many stories and nostalgic 
recollections ever readily given by that 
great raconteur Morrie Anderson. 

Way back in 1961 he was staying at 
New York’s famed Waldorf Astoria on 
the occasion of his great pacer 
Apmat’s visit for the International 
Pacers at Yonkers. 

A cable arrived for Morrie. 

“Put it under the door” instructed 
Morrie. 

“Can’t do, sir, the tray won’t fit” 
came the reply. 

Morrie woke in a stride. 

He opened the door and the 
grinning beam behind the perfect set 
of ivories said — “Your cable, suh,” on 
a nicely embossed silver tray. 

“Here” said big hearted Morrie, 
“have a drink” and gave the boy the 
equivalent of an Australian 1961 ten 
shilling note thinking he was acting in 
a “big note” way. 

“What, watta”! replied the boy, — 
and it’s not often that Morrie is 
inarticulate.
