Adelaide Sport (Newspaper) - June 06, 1924, Adelaide, South AustraliaNational Library of Australia told you so. Babu Thunder Jibber Jee writes. As per prediction of yours truly the grease is now in the conflagration Oil subject of Yankee exclusive Tiess there if the Devil to pay., , chinese and to Pooi Nodi ii Amble excitedly in top gear and cry for asian Union. The presence will remember that his Humble servant informed him How stupid color Barris Ness was How some Frabj Ous Day lion of England would Lay Down with Goat of India and dragon of China and play Mah longish amusement inter Alia. Did not the presence apply painful Boot to Humble servant vrho cried with pain but was True Cassandra nevertheless and notwithstanding now owing to Eagle flaps the dragon chrysanthemum and Goat Combine and get together to wipe blot from Escutcheon As per prophecy of despised Babu to wit myself. I subscribe with Oriental politeness hiding Devilish bad tem per in Core of beings yours obediently Thunder Jibber Jee. . The High Cost of football Means a bigger Tariff for Tomball fans. There is no justification for this latest slug for As football becomes More popular the attendances and consequently the receipts become larger. But not Large enough for the appetites of the where does the Money go to surely not All in Boot laces Lemons and i have a fair idea where the Oil goes to but most of the other items in these humorous compilations styled balance sheets cannot be explained satisfactorily. If the players receive a decent Cut of the huge receipts As is the Case with other professional athletes whom the Public pay to see the football graft would be explainable. It is notorious though that the professional players receive miserable Doles and if injured or played out after a Short football life they Are thrown on the scrap Heap. Football fans should get Busy in their clubs and demand an even distribution of the profits among All the playing members As some Melbourne clubs Are now doing. It seems a lop sided argument to pay some players under the Lap and give nothing to the men who deserve pay just As Well and sometimes better than the Britain s. Beer Bill. I remember hearing a Digger from the Harbor City say when he lobbed in London in 1916 Lor Blime Bill this City looks to be As big As Sydney does t it Well pretty near As big Jim was his Cobber s reply. Now if these two diggers survived the big scrap and have the Good Luck to get an eyeful of the following Cable they will agree that if London is not quite As big As Sydney the people of great Britain can surround More Beer per annul than can the people of Australia London the staggering total of �307,500,000 was spent on intoxicating liquor by the people of Britain in 1923, this is a considerable decrease on the previous year when �330,000,000 went in the same direction. The consumption of spirits decreased by 61 per cent., but Beer was increased by a per cent., and we by 71 per cent. Tie consumption of Beer in 1923 totalled 930,000,000 Gallons and Cost �193,000,000. Against this Kiriy 800,000,000 Gallons of milk was drunk at a Cost of �93,000,000." Kismet or kiss a healthy boy that is to say a healthy Young Savage brought up among boys has a profound contempt for tie girlish business of kissing. He will tolerate a kiss from his Mother in strict privacy but any Public demonstration brings shame on him. He loathes it. Never shall i forget the bitter humiliation put upon me the first Day i went to school a six year old Urchin in Cap and knickers from a household of boys. There was a big deep Bosomed girl at the school almost a woman who in full View of the youngsters in the playground picked me up in her arms and suddenly and treacherously kissed be on the lips. A jeer yelled by the other Young barbarians made matters still worse. I fairly howled with fury. I fought my Way to the ground. I kicked at the shins of my to Mentress and when she avoided me and set up a mocking laugh i pursued her with stones and hurled after her words not Learned at sunday school. Time healed the wound and As i grew up and passed from class to class i was at times guilty of yielding to provocation and falling from Grace when tempted by some Long haired Short skirted impudent giggling classmate. But a kiss always brought shame and self contempt. It was a weakness a lure of the Devil. One article of the Creed however had to be maintained. That two male bipeds even Brothers or father and son arrived at the age of reason should kiss each other was horrible unthinkable. So when i got into the sixth class and read in the Royal Reader Southey s account of the Battle of Trafalgar and death of Nelson i could not forgive the dying hero for his kiss me my Gorge Rose at it. Was Nelson then no better than the depraved and sentimental frenchmen against whom he was fighting could the battered seadog who had put the Telescope to Lis Blind Eye at Copenhagen lower himself to this Nelson was undeniably a hero but a hero with a Black Mark on his record. Secretly i was ashamed of him. Years went by and slowly very slowly i came to understand the youth of Napoleon s dictum that his Story is but fiction agreed j i found that the sentimental Southey was untrustworthy. Nelson had never put the Telescope to his Blind Eye at Copenhagen and hallelujah he had never said kiss me what he had really said was Kismet Hardy the sort of thing one who had been wounded in times past and had been thousands of times in mortal peril would say. Prom that moment Nelson was rehabilitated. His mortal sin was forgiven him and now he might be permitted to enter Valhalla in Triumph sit in a place of Honor in the Hall of Odin and drink Meed with his co Peers the Vikings out of the skulls of slain enemies. Skoal to Nelson Skoal a bashful Man never knows what to do with his hands. But the shy est of Shes is never at a loss about her legs. Even when they Aren t Over shapely. Home work is woman s sphere a inges a Bishop Bloke. Maybe so. But she to cannot be persuaded to do it now a Days for love or Money. Three Blind from a port sport the ways of racecourse committees Are wild and mysterious. Year Agone the writer nicknamed the stipendiary stewards the three Blind mice and believe me my Brothers the name has stuck to them Ever since. Whenever a glaring Case occurs it is the fashion for the Heads to arise and warble three Blind mice who Don t see How they this occurred with a vengeance at a recent race meeting where an alleged gentlemen s sports meeting wound up in a smell Ful scandal when an electric Battery was found on a jockey in the last race. Refused permission to play darts is the grandstand enclosure Hughie the Baker fretted and fumed throughout the Long hot afternoon being occasionally soothed by the Assurance of a committeeman that although they personally had nothing against him no game of Chance and skill could be Toler ated.

The special train Back did not Start until after dinner and at the leading hotel a Fine item was added to the menu. Amongst the one Hundred Odd settlers at the table was Hughie still nursing his grievance and at the other end of the room the committee and the stipendiary Steward who came to see fair Square and gentlemanly behaviour. Hughie arose to a Toast and the whole dining room was hushed As he spoke. Gentlemen he shouted Ste notoriously i give you the Toast of the committee who would t let me play darts. And he continued lifting his Glass i couple with it in the name of Good clean racing that far seeing rugs eyed set of old fossils the three Blind mice let us be upstanding and join the and the whole town the adjacent railway station and suburbs rocked to the famous old glee of the mice. But in this Case it was the mice who Don t see How they run until a racecourse detective Dick discovered a Battery on a jockey.
