See Library of Congress. Copyright Office U.S. Government Printing Office, 1939 <br/>item 8634 on page 1950 W.A Griffiths and page 1710 Bevan Music Productions. No mention of the name 'Alcwyn' found in Australian newspapers, or 'Harold Stacey' in connection with music, therefore Australian contribution unlikely.

George Goninon and Geelong V Richmond coached by Jack Dyer 1951.<br/><br/>PLAYING steadier and more intelligent football, Geelong withstood Richmond's buffeting tactics in a most impressive main League game victory at Kardinia Park on Saturday. Shots for goal with the slippery ball missed or dropped short. Geelong had been faster to the ball, they kicked it along the ground out of the mud patches, and hooked it from the packs cleverly. Twice Geelong half-forwards dropped and lost the wet ball when they had an open run for goal.<br/> Physical c...

Vol. 8, No. 4., p.10 <br/>MHS V Melbourne Grammar.<br/>Little “Jimmy Johnson”, who had been roving tirelessly, ran into an open goal to add another major. Moore to Kann (Brian Kann, 57 games at Hawthorn 1954-59) to Johnson was beautiful football and fully deserving of the resultant angle goal from the nippy rover.
