Children Greet Cowboy Singer
SYDNEY, Sept. 28.
An Australian singing "cowboy" who has made good in the US at the expense of the world's best,
returned to Sydney by air today from America to be welcomed by hundreds of wildly excited children. He is Melbourne-born 'Smoky' Dawson. who in a little more than 12 months in America has been given radio and television contracts which make him one of the highest-paid Australian art- ists to ever go abroad. Dawson was wearing a cowboy suit, a snakeskin tie and a 10-gallon hat when he walked off the Clipper. His young admirers shrieked. "We want Smoky." as she walked through to the customs shed. Later, he mounted a horse on the grass outside the over- seas terminal and also sang for the children inside the building. He has come to Australia to make a series of broad- casts for the ABC and com- mercial stations. Dawson said there was a wonderful opportunity in Australia for the making of television films for sale in the US.
