Losses to New Zealand Sport
Losses to New Zealand Sport.
New Zealand sport lost two valued officials and supporters a few weeks ago, when Messrs. Earl Stewart and A. W. O. Travers passed away with tragic suddenness. Of the two men, Mr. Stewart was better known to the sporting public because of his connection with boxing. As a referee he stood above any other “third man” in New Zealand, and although at times his decisions were questioned it was significant that the losing boxer would ask that “Mick” Stewart be the referee in future bouts, A great man, his loss will be felt for many a year.
For authoritatively written sporting information, there is no better value in the Dominion than “N.Z. Sporting Life and Referee.” A carefully selected staff of sporting writers—all experts in their respective branches of sport—weekly place before the paper's large army of readers the very latest and best in sporting news and comment. Whether it's racing, trotting, wrestling, boxing, athletics, cricket, swimming, or yachting it is just the same. Accuracy and brightness are the paper's guiding principles and on those solid foundations its Dominion-wide popularity has been built.
Every sportsman who knows his sport buys “Sporting Life and Referee” and makes a close study of its contents. It is the paper that materially helps to make racing a payable proposition. “Fourpence and well worth it,” is the public's verdict.
