Mr Beerworth arranged for me to go bankrupt after this episode in 1962.
Was in debtors court being examined by a Mrs Oriely , who had previously had a court order against me that i pay ten shillings a week off a bill and i had failed to do so, she had only just come to town and was in opposition to Mr Beerworth.
I was called to the dock and sworn in and without a word to me she turned to the judge and said ---your honour i want an order of ten days imprisonment for Mr Yandell being for contempt of court.
WOW!!! i thought i was a goner, when Mr Beerworth jumped up saying.
COME COME !! Mrs Oriely you can't do that, fair dinkum i could have kissed him .
She withdrew her comment and had the 10 shilling a week order renewed .
