Got her Sheba. Over to you


Catherine Helen Spence (31 October 1825 3 April 1910) was a Scottish-born Australian author, teacher, journalist, politician, leading suffragist, and Georgist.[1] In 1897 she became Australia's first female political candidate after standing (unsuccessfully) for the Federal Convention held in Adelaide. Called the "Greatest Australian Woman" by Miles Franklin and given the nomenclature of "Grand Old Woman of Australia' on her eightieth birthday, Spence was commemorated on the Australian five-dollar note issued for the Centenary of Federation of Australia.

You got him Dave.

 

Sir William McMahon, GCMG, CH (/mkmn/; 23 February 1908  31 March 1988), was an Australian politician who served as the 20th Prime Minister of Australia, in office from 1971 to 1972 as leader of the Liberal Party. He was a government minister for over 21 years, the longest continuous service in Australian history.

McMahon was born and raised in Sydney, studying law at the University of Sydney and working as a commercial lawyer. He served in the Australian Army during World War II, finishing with the rank of major; after the war's end, he returned to university to complete an economics degree. McMahon was elected to parliament at the 1949 federal election. He was promoted to the ministry in 1951 and added to cabinet in 1956, holding several different portfolios in the Menzies Government. His final appointment under Menzies was as Minister for Labour and National Service in 1958; he gained a high profile as the minister responsible for the reintroduction of conscription.

In 1966, McMahon was elected deputy leader of the Liberal Party and became Treasurer in the new Holt Government. Over the following three years oversaw a large reduction in the national deficit. McMahon made his first bid for the prime ministership in 1968, following Holt's disappearance; his candidacy was vetoed by John McEwen, the leader of the junior party in the governing coalition. McMahon initially continued on as Treasurer in the Gorton Government, but in 1969 was demoted to Minister for External Affairs after an unsuccessful challenge for the leadership. He eventually succeeded Gorton in early 1971, winning a vote against Billy Snedden after Gorton lost the confidence of the partyroom.

McMahon became prime minister at the age of 63, and remains the oldest non-interim prime minister to take office. His government has been described as "a blend of cautious innovation and fundamental orthodoxy", and continued many of the policies of its immediate predecessors, such as Gorton's phased withdrawal of Australian troops from Vietnam. In its final year it was faced with high inflation and unemployment. McMahon was defeated by Gough Whitlam's Labor Party at the 1972 federal election, ending 23 consecutive years of Coalition rule. He resigned the Liberal leadership, but remained in parliament until 1982 as a backbencher.

McMahon is often considered one of Australia's worst prime ministers, and after leaving office several of his former colleagues openly criticised his leadership style and personal character. However, Gough Whitlam acknowledged him as "an extraordinarily skilful, resourceful and tenacious politician", and credited him with having prevented a larger margin of defeat in 1972.

Your right on the ball Dave, over to you for a pic.  That pic is from his professional baseball playing days. Here is a pic that you might be more familiar with.

Kevin Joseph Aloysius Chuck Connors (April 10, 1921 November 10, 1992) was an American actor, writer and professional basketball and baseball player. He is one of only 12 athletes in the history of American professional sports to have played both Major League Baseball and in the National Basketball Association.[citation needed] With a 40-year film and television career, he is best known for his five-year role as Lucas McCain in the highly rated ABC series The Rifleman (195863).

Dave

Richard Weedt Widmark (December 26, 1914  March 24, 2008) was an American film, stage, and television actor and producer.
He was nominated for an Academy Award for his role as the villainous Tommy Udo in his debut film, Kiss of Death, for which he also won the Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Newcomer. Early in his career, Widmark was typecast in similar villainous or anti-hero roles in films noir, but he later branched out into more heroic leading and support roles in Westerns, mainstream dramas, and horror films, among others.
For his contribution to the motion picture industry, Widmark has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6800 Hollywood Boulevard. In 2002, he was inducted into the Western Performers Hall of Fame at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Well done Sheba. Your turn
Dave

Ethel Merman (born Ethel Agnes Zimmermann, January 16, 1908 February 15, 1984) was an American actress and singer.[1] Known primarily for her distinctive, powerful voice and leading roles in musical theatre, she has been called "the undisputed First Lady of the musical comedy stage".[2]

Among the many standards introduced by Merman in Broadway musicals are "I Got Rhythm" (from Girl Crazy); "Everything's Coming Up Roses", "Some People", and "Rose's Turn" (from GypsyMerman starred as Rose in the original 1959 Broadway production); and the Cole Porter songs "It's De-Lovely" (from Red, Hot and Blue), "Friendship" (from DuBarry Was a Lady), and "I Get a Kick Out of You", "You're the Top", and "Anything Goes" (from Anything Goes). The Irving Berlin song "There's No Business Like Show Business", written for the musical Annie Get Your Gun, became Merman's signature song.
