In the Herald: September 1, 1969

$3452 goes in outside job

Police are searching for bandits who stole $3452 from the Wentworthville TAB late on Saturday night – without entering the premises. The office had closed and the manageress and two other employees were checking the money. At 10.10pm a gun barrel was poked through the glass louvres of the back door. A man demanded money and ordered her to push it between the louvres. Police think two men were probably involved, the Herald reported.

It’s all in the choice

“Choosing a career today is like choosing an ice-cream,” said the Rev. K. L. Child. “There are many different flavours.” Mr Child, who is director-chaplain of The Inter-Church Trade and Industry Mission of NSW, addressed a prayer meeting at St. Andrew’s Cathedral, which officially opened Apprenticeship Week yesterday. The Herald reported that during the cathedral service young craftsmen, bearing symbolic tools of their trade, received a blessing.

Still ’In Touch”

Suspended jockey Ron Quinton rode four winners at the Randwick barrier trials yesterday. It was all legal, of course, but veteran racing men could not help remarking that they could not remember a suspended jockey riding winners at Randwick before. Quinton had 11 rides in the 18 heats for four winners and two seconds. His winners were Final Bid, Coal Cliff, Delphins and Darlinghurst. Stewards last Tuesday suspended Quinton until September 20.
