Southport's Safe Surf NO MISHAPS DURING SEASON TRIBUTE TO LIFE-SAVERS [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
Southport's Safe Surf NO MISHAPS DURING SEASON &nbsp; &nbsp; TRIBUTE TO LIFE-SAVERS &nbsp; Though the surf at Southport is &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; considered safe for swimmers, no surf is without its dangers, and the fact that the life-savers were not called upon to effect a single rescue during the Christmas and New Year holiday rush, is a testimony more to their work than to the comparative safety of the beach. Long before the surfers reach the scene of their pastime, the life-savers have the sea surveyed and flags placed to guide the surfers. Added &nbsp; to this is continual vigilence and con- stant regulation. So unobtrusively is the work carried out that the public &nbsp; scarcely know the men are there watching over their interests. It is a great thing to have his security and protection. It is something that the town and visitors have reason to be grateful for. Two members of the Southport Club, Mess...

For a Rest Home MOVE BY COUNTRY WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
For a Rest Home MOVE BY COUNTRY WOMEN Now that the Christmas vacation has passed, the Southport branch of the Country Women's Association is assuming new activities and respon- sibilities. The objective now is a &nbsp; Rest Room, which is a most desirable one. Rest rooms have proved a boon to many country centres, and Southport, with its large visitation, should not be behind in this respect; and it is for the public to see that it is not, to see that this splendid organisation with its humanitarian work, is not wanting in any help it may require. The first effort towards the new objective will be a dance in the Pier Pavilion on January 11. The Sans Souci Orchestra has been engaged and refreshments will be provided. The admission is only 2/. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

FRIDAY, JANUARY 11 "The Futurity Winner" [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
FRIDAY, JANUARY 11 "The Futurity Winner" A heart -clutching drama, shot with thrills — real, human emotions, drawn taut with the conflict of wills — big situations — whirling speed, wonderful comedy — and a story begun and ended with the most spectacular race ever filmed.

Home for Home Makers GIRL GUIDES AND THEIR LITTLE HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
Home for Home Makers GIRL GUIDES AND THEIR LITTLE &nbsp; HOUSE &nbsp; With Girl Guides moving about our &nbsp; town at the present time, it should be of interest to readers to know how highly the organisation is regarded in U.S.A., where their aims are well un- derstood. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; There the Girl Scouts received the gift from the General Federation of American Women's Clubs, a house — a real house — of seven rooms; three bedrooms, a nursery, a dining-room, a living room, and an entirely modern kitchen. This house was built by the Club women for the Better Homes Demon- stration Week a year or two ago. It was erected on Government property at the back of White House and was a true copy of the home of John Howard Payne, the author of Home Sweet Home. Of course the house was fitted with all the most modern arrangements and labor-saving inven- tions. When the Demonstration Week ended it became necessary to move the ...
Wasted Energy [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
Wasted Energy The farmer, who had just engaged a new hand, took him to a field and started him ploughing with two horses. Two hours later the new man re- turned to the house looking utterly exhausted. The farmer asked him how he was getting along. "I'm not getting along at all," snapped the man disgustedly. "How do you expect me to hold a plough with two big strong horses trying to pull it away from me all the time? The Put-It-Off &nbsp; My friend, have you heard of the town of Yawn, On the banks of tie river Slow, Where blossoms the Wait-a-while flower fair, Where the Sometime-or-other scents the air, And the soft Go-easys grow? &nbsp; It lies in the valley of What's-the- use; In the province of Let-us-slide; &nbsp; That tired feeling is native there; &nbsp; It's the home of the listless I-don't- &nbsp; care, Where the Put-it-offs abide.
A Cr[?]b of Comfort [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
A Crumb of Comfort "Mr. Chairman," explained the politician indignantly, stopping in his speech; "I have been on my feet &nbsp; nearly ten minutes, but there is so much noise and interruption that I &nbsp; &nbsp; can hardly hear myself speak." "Cheer up, guv'nor," came a voice from the back of the hall; "you aren't missing much." Why should you ride a bucking horse if you wish to get rich? Because you are no sooner on than &nbsp; you are better off. What is it that holds water al- &nbsp; though it is full of holes? &nbsp; A sponge.
A Jar for M[?] [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
A jar for Mama Little Johnny: Ma says orange &nbsp; peel is good for making marmalade. Father: So it is. It is wrong to &nbsp; throw it away on the pavement. Little Johnny : Yes. Mama says if I do she might slip on it and fall down. Father : Of course she might. And then you would get marmalaid! &nbsp; &nbsp; Why is a girl mending her stock- &nbsp; ings an extraordinary sight? &nbsp; Because her hands are where her feet should be.
RUINED CITY IN A LAKE WHAT A DROUGHT BROUGHT FORTH [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
RUINED CITY IN A LAKE WHAT A DROUGHT BROUGHT FORTH The ruins of what was once the biggest city in America were laid bare by a drought in Arizona, which lowered the level of Roosevelt Lake. An expedition from the American Museum of Natural History, which explored the ruins, estimated that the buildings were between 2000 and &nbsp; 5000 years old. Pottery of a design similar to that found in old Mexican ruins has been unearthed, and a building was discovered, about 550 long, which apparently once stood four storeys high. What past civilisation fouri had? &nbsp; &nbsp;
Hollywood Carnival [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
Hollywood Carnival To-morrow (Saturday) the Holly- wood Carnival will fold up its tent and bid the town of Southport good- bye. It is with regret, the proprie- tors say, that they must leave so soon; but as they are already billed to play the northern district, this has to be done. The management de- &nbsp; sires to thank the general public as well as visitors to Sotuhport for their kindness as well as their gener- ous support. Many invitations have been received to return next season, and already plans are being made for such a visit. The importation of European as well as American shows &nbsp; for next season are already contracted for. Other plans that are being talked of at this time will be a gigantic bathing girls parade just like that which is held at Atlantic City, and of which motion pictures will be taken. These pictures will be sent not only all over Australia, but will have an International range. This arrangement has been discussed with a number of South...

World s Biggest Organ [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 5 January 1929
World's Biggest Organ &nbsp; Who would have thought an organ loft could be such a chamber of com- &nbsp; plicated mysteries writes a special &nbsp; &nbsp; correspondent of the "Evening Stan- &nbsp; dard" on the Albert Hall organ. &nbsp; &nbsp; The four keyboards, or manuals, facing one like a broad flight of steps; &nbsp; &nbsp; the multitude of draw-stops on either side (176 altogether, each bearing its name on its white knob) controlled by &nbsp; rows of thumb stops below the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; manuals; the imposing array of pedals &nbsp; — these things the eye takes in at a glance. But they are only the epitome of the organ. The organ itself is an &nbsp; edifice of over 9,000 pipes. The tal- &nbsp; lest is 32 feet, a regular chimney &nbsp; shaft; the shortest a little fellow no more than three Inches high. &nbsp; But numbers and measure...
