A touchy situation developed when 46 year old Richard BRETT went into the State Theatrette last Monday afternoon. BRETT, said the police, sat next to a woman. The usherettes, who knew him, saw him crouch in his seat. The woman got up and went to another seat. BRETT got up and moved too. He sat next to another woman. Again he crouched on the seat. The woman got up and left the theatre. BRETT followed, but he didn't get far. Two detectives stopped him, questioned him and BRETT admitted he had been feeling the ladies legs.
BRETT told them he could not control himself when he was under the influence of liquor. He was slightly under the influence, the police said. In Central Court on Tuesday BRETT pleaded guilty to a charge of offensive behaviour.
BRETT claimed he left his seat to got o the toilet. If he had touched the women he said, they would have complained, but they had said nothing about his behaviour. The police said BRETT was know for more serious offences.
Magistrate BEAVERS fined him 5.

He tried to clean up two Policemen.....
Two Melbourne policemen alleged this week that a truck driver tried to run them down because he "didn't like coppers" The truck, which they had hailed, missed one of them by only two inches, the policemen said.
The driver, Allan James CATON, 24 year old sanitary worker of Abbotsford, was charged with having driven in a dangerous manner. Constable L. McLAY told the court that about 11 pm on December 28 he and Constable R.P. MASON saw a truck approaching along a Collingwood street. The truck had only one light burning.
The constables waved their torches on the road, held up their hands and called, "Stop," but the truck kept coming. Constable McLAY said they stepped onto the road. The truck's motor roared, he saw the driver spin the wheel and the truck swung to the wrong side of the road.
"I was 18 inches from the kerb and jumped back," he said. "He missed MASON by 2 inches"
Constable MASON said CATON'S explanation had been, "I don't like coppers"
CATON told him he did not know why he did not stop. Asked why he didn't have a licence, CATON had said "It was torn up." CATON told the court that he had not tried to run down the police. "I didn't think they were coppers," he said.
CATON was fined 10 and disqualified from obtaining a driving licence for 2 years, on the dangerous driving charge.
He was also fined 2 for having a truck with only one headlight and for having driven without a licence.

The bottle is his trouble...
At 2.30 am on Thursday a police car pulled up alongside grizzled 48-year-old Edmund PEARSON as he stood on a deserted Melbourne street corner.
"What are you doing here at this time of night?" Constable Kevin McMAHON asked.
"You watch," said PEARSON, and he pulled an empty milk bottle from his overcoat pocket and hurled it at a shop window.
It bounced off the glass and shattered itself on the ground. PEARSON turned to the constable and said "I wanted to break that window and go to jail."
In the City Court next day PEARSON of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to a charge of offensive behaviour.
PEARSON told the Court "I've been drinking so much I've been ill with it. It seemed that the only way to get a grip on myself was to go to jail for awhile."
"I went to jail for wilful damage last year and while I was there I decided that I would limit my drinking and get the best of it.
That failed. Now I want to go back, and when I come out this time I won't drink at all."
But PEARSON didn't go back this time. He was fined 5.

Her Quiz Prize was a Fine.
Dulcie JOHNSON, better known an another of her names "Pretty Dulcie" MARKHAM, wasn't very careful about the way she answered a few questions when she applied for a driving licence on July 3 last year (1953) They were the usual questions on the application form. " Have you ever been charged with drunkenness?" was the first....."No" wrote Dulcie. "Have you had any offences in connection with motor vehicles?"....."No" wrote Dulcie. "Have you ever had your licence suspended?"...."No" again. And that was just going too far. Next thing Dulcie knew she was answering questions from Constable Linwood SMITH of Darlinghurst Police. She admitted having given wrong answers, and that under the name Mary EUGENE she had convictions for drunkenness, drunken driving and unlicensed driving in 1939, 1944 and 1945. She also admitted having her licence suspended, once for 3 years and once for a year.
And so Dulcie's head bobbed up in a Court again - this time in the Traffic Court, where she pleaded guilty to a charge of having obtained a licence by means of a false statement. Dulcie lives in Lang Road, Centennial Park. Police records shown to the Court listed convictions against Dulcie in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, and Western Australia dating back to 1931. They included consorting, vagrancy, soliciting, using indecent language, stealing, assaulting the police and destroying a cell bucket. Her aliases were listed as Dulcie MARKHAM, Dulcie WILLIAMS, Dulcie BOWAN, Dulcie TAPLIN, Mary EUGENE, Mary WILLIAMS and Tasco de MARCO. Magistrate GARNSEY fined Dulcie 20, and disqualified her from holding a licence until June 1956.

Baby Takes a Bow
At four years of age tiny Norma ROACH of Melbourne, already knows her ballet steps - rehearses every chance she gets.
"Norma is so keen on her dancing that we have to see to it that she makes up that lost energy daily" says Mrs ROACH. "So I make sure she has plenty of Vegemite every meal-time," She's another little Vege-"mite". For healthy nerves, firm body tissues, good digestion and clear skin, you must have a fresh supply of Vitamin B1, B2 and Niacin every day, vegemite provides a rich supply of these vitamins.

Colonel and Mrs Wilkinson were giving a bridge party not long after their honeymoon.
And said the colonel's blonde and lovely Russian-born wife in London's Divorce Court this week, the colonel told her what words to use to bid her guests farewell. They were, she said, words of the "grossest possible obscenity".
But she found that out only later. At the time she didn't know what they meant and blindly obeyed her husband.
At the Divorce Court, Col. William Wilkinson, D.S.O., M.C., of Storrington (Sussex) and his wife, Martha, both sued for divorce on the grounds of cruelty.
Making her say naughty words wasn't the only thing of which Mrs Wilkinson accused her husband.
She also said;
* He was a selfish, domineering, quarrelsome nagger
* He insulted her, assaulted her and humiliated her.
* He hung a portrait of his ex-mistress in the hall-way of their home.
* He put golf tees in her bed.
The colonel had plenty to say too. He said his wife had an uncontrollable temper and a nagging tongue, had abused and belittled him in public, assaulted him and had twice tried to kill him with a revolver and a shotgun He claimed that his wife had used indecent language at the bridge party of her own free will.
The husband's evidence was more that Mr. Justice COLLINGWOOD could believe. He gave Mrs WILKINSON a decree nisi.

A trainee nurse, who dropped a fur zipper purse in a crowd at Market Street on Friday night was unable to retrieve it in the crush. The purse contained hospital keys and the nurse's holiday pay. Nurse Pam Poan ISAACS of Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, asks the finder to return the purse to the hospital or ring MU3469.

A well-to-do 60-year-old retired confectioner, George Edward EASTWOOD of Orrong Rd, Elsternwick, was aquitted by a jury today of charge of having stolen or received a gold wristlet watch valued at 35. The prisoner was aquitted and discharged this morning after the jury had been out half an hour. Yesterday Judge MOORE sent the jury away and told me J. GALBALLY, counsel for the prisoner, that it had been his practice to avoid holding back court officals, jurors, and others into the night. When the court resumed today Mr. GALBALLY repeated objections he raised yesterday that the prisoner was entitled to immediate consideration of a verdict, particularly as the case had finished as early as 3.15pm.

He asked that a retrial be granted on the ground that jurors should not seperate before they considered a verdict. Judge MOORE refused the application, ststing that he had not finished his charge to the jurors when he sent them home. It was unfair he said to keep jurors back through their dinner hour after they had been sitting all day. Mr GALBALLY quoted a High Appeal Court decision that a prisoner was entitled to a retrial if, after the judge had, charged the jury, the jurors were seperated without being under the control of the court. Mt GALLBALLY said it might be that his Honor added some remark to the jury this morning on what he (Mr Galbally) said yesterday when the jury had retired, but he submitted that the trial had been completed. Judge MOORE said that he had not finished his charge, so the trial was not completed. It was in the interests of justice that jurors should not be sent out to deliberate in the late afternoon. This was resented by juries, and he had not the slightest doubt as to what was proper in the circumstances. The judge then made some remarks to the jury on another submission by Mr Galbally and sent the jurors into their room to consider a verdict.

100 Years Ago

Beef for Migrants 'Stank Abominably'

From the Melbourne Morning Herald for the week ended Feb 18th, 1850.

The barque Aden left Plymouth on the 27th May last, and reached Adelaide after a voyage of 120 days from London. From a document, numerously signed by the passengers, the following is a condensed but accurate statement of the occurrences which took place on board.

As soon as we got out to sea the beef served out was of the unwholesome kind, and stank so abominably that it was generally either rejected or taken and afterwards thrown overboard. Some of the casks were branded 1835. The flour given to us in lieu of potatoes, consisted almost entirely of lumps as hard as chalk and was so mildewed and nasty that we could not eat it. The biscuits were moulds, the butter rancid, and we never had our full allowance of water. Our meat and puddings were always boiled in sea water, and sometimes the water used for tea was wholly or partially sea water. "Throughout, the captain conducted himself in the most outrageous and ungentlemanly manner, and exercised the greatest tyrany over all, as though we had been hireling menials or slaves."
