The run with the hounds on Satur­day last is pro­nounced by those who took part in it as be­ing most suc­cess­ful. The weather was as nearly like that of a Novem­ber morn­ing at home as we could hope for in this sunny south. It was chilly and foggy.

Although there was not a kill the hopes of the most en­thu­si­as­tic for an ex­cit­ing run were more than re­alised.

Clat­ter­ing hoofs and crack­ing whips, soon an­nounced the ap­proach of other ar­dent sports­men. the at­ten­tion of an an­thro­pol­o­gist”, said mag­is­trate DR Ja­cobs when he found Neville Or­monde, 36, and Dorothy Jube­lin, 34, guilty of con­tra­ven­ing the Im­moral­ity Act. They were each sen­tenced to three months’ hard labour sus­pended for three years.

Ja­cobs said he con­sid­ered the ap­pear­ance of Dorothy Jube­lin a de­ter­min­ing fac­tor. The en­vi­ron­ment in which Jube­lin grew up and lived stamped her as Coloured. The con­di­tions and mode of liv­ing of the fam­ily who slept in one room clas­si­fied them as Coloureds. Her fea­tures im­parted a Coloured ap­pear­ance and her light com­plex­ion could not re­lieve her from her hered­i­tary dis­abil­ity.
