THE NEED OF LEADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934
! THE NEED OF LEADERS. : ; With the near approach of the elections in both the Federal and State spheres, the different parties and prospective candidates are be ginning to weigh their chances. Al ready they are stressing ? points of difference and criticising each other's policies (or lack of policy). The day seems to have passed when the man of independent mind is sought. The electors for the most part can be labelled as belonging to some shade of thought in politics; and the day. has passed, too, when a can didate for a constituency, in his en deavours to ingratiate himself, can Trass through an electorate shaking hands with men, speaking prettily to -the women, and kissing the babies. With' the advance of education, the ?privilege of free speech, and the searchlight of the press, the people are ~. now able to weigh up the con testants for their favours. If there must be parties — and it :^eems there mugt be — -what is needed i§; strong leadership. In every de partment the world ...

Fruit Marketing ACTION BY CITRUS GROWERS. APPLE GROWERS SHOULD TAKE NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934
Fruit Marketing ACTION BY CITRUS GROWERS. APPLE GROWERS SHOULD TAKE NOTICE. The increased production in all apple growing countries during the past ten. years, especially in Tas mania, .has brought about problems and-' difficulties for shippers that were either of minor significance or even non-existent previously, and unless growers realise the fact andi make adequate provision for meeting the changed , conditions, the result will be disastrous to the growers of apples, for - it must always be borne in mind that the last to get his share of the proceeds from the sale of fruit is the man who .produced it. When, there fore', the sale price is only sufficient to pay -freight, cartage and' commis sion charges (as occurred all too frequently with the overseas Tas maniari shipments' last season) , the .grower gets nothing at all, or may even be served with debit .notes, which by : law -he -is liable -to be com-. Ipelled1 to pay. Citrus growers of the mainland States have been compelled -...

THE TRUMBLE TWINS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934
THE TRUMBLE TWINS. Mr Hugh Tiumble's twin sons, J Bob and Ken, known more intimately as* Turner and Ferris, made their ?debut as cricketers at Woodend, Vic- I toria, last week in a game arranged by Messrs Hai'old Brookes and H. Donahco, on Mr Brookes property, Woodend. On the same side was Ray Park, son of Dr. R. L. Park, also a former international cricketer. Ken shaped the better of the Trumble boys at batting, but Bob evened up the honors at bowling, though as yet he showed none of his father's guile. All the boys playing in the match were from the public schools, and displayed form good enough to indicate that they will be heard of in more important cricket. The match was won by Brookes eleven (176), as against 98 by Donahco's team.
King of Fruits THE APPLE OF THE CONSUMERS EYE [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934
King of Fruits THE APPLE OF THE CON SUMERS EYE (By Dean. Halliday). ' An interesting article ?, appears in I: the - ' American Fruitgrower ' by . Dean -Halliday and suggests' an idea for the sale of apples in the local or interstate markets. It matters not to the grower who buys his apples. ; The main concern is- to find a market. I It is claimed for the suggestion that apples got up in an attractive carton, will make -them' easy to buy, because attractive, and easy to carry ihomej Dr. Dean Halliday writes: ?' The art of packaging has already increased the sales of celery, rhu barb, . Irnushrooms, limes, asparagus, cherries, strawberries and blueber ries.; I It can, do the same for apples. As a matter, of fact, it does not re quire, as much ingenuity to package I apples attractively as it does any one of the. f aforementioned perishable products. . -Apples, the 'King of Frurts,' are i as attractive as any fruit grown. All that apples of quality need to sell I themselves is the oppor...
Census of Orchards ACTION BY FRUIT BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934
Census of Orchards ACTION BY FRUIT BOARD. At a meeting of the. State Fruiti Advisory Board at Launceston - on I Tuesday, 'Februax*y. '27th, it was 'de cided, - on! the motion of Mr F. \ M. i Nicholl, that a .roll of the the orchard i properties in Tasmania be prepared, showing the number,' of trees of drf- 1 fererit varieties and their ages. ? This information 'will be obtained by means of a circular sent to grow ers, and the; information, it was pointed out, ''would ,be invaluable to the industry in the' State. ' Mr Nicholl, moving the motion, said; that it was definitely ' intended that the scientific and gradual elim ination of certain varieties from ex port should take place. The -ab- normal season last year had forced the Apple arid Pear Export Council to take immediate action, and he was of. the opinion that the council ? did not have before it sufficient data to arrive at a sound decision. ? He thought that quantity rather ' than quality had been considered. He could not unde...

As an old hand at the game I was sympathetically interested, and. though I do not recall how our conver sation started I do know that I so guided the talk that, blushing slightly, he said at last: 'Well, yes, as a matter of fact I do write — quite a lot. Fiction mostly. I'm just finishing my first novel now.' 'Nothing to be ashamed of in that,' I heartened him. .

TAKEN FOR C5RANTED; The young man who had just re turned from Africa was talking to a: charming hostess about his travels. „ S/ 'We dug for water,' lie said, 'and even though we, dug over a hundred and thirty feet we did not come to any different, sub-soil!' 'Just fancy!' said the hostess. 'And is all Africa like that?' 'Er— well,' stammered the other, 'we didn't bother lo dig all over Africa!' / . / Asked what lie' knew about Solomon, the youngest boy in the school said: 'He was very fond of animals.' When pressed for. an explanation, lie replied, 'Because he had three hun dred porcupines.' 'A woman who owried a house by the side, of the Yarra had been annoyed by the practice of the village youths of bathing in full view of the garden.

One youth popped his head up and replied: 'Never mind that; my father's the...
Hitlerism ATTACK ON COMMUNISM. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934
Hitlerism ATTACK ON COMMUNISM. A great deal has been said of the German treatment of the Jews, and nothing can justify their .harsh atti-. tude, -nor the drastic action taken by the Nazi extremists. There is, how ever, another side to this. The Nazis are in power as the result of reaction against Communism, and Hitler is regarded as the saviour of his country from its menace. 'In September of last year the Commun ist Party issued a manifesto against the Von Papin Government, in which they stated that nothing short of a revolution which - would ? bring the artisans and peasants of Ger many into line with their brethren in Soviet Russia, Czecho-Slovakia, France, :and ' other lands, would suffice. It was computed that from 70 to 80 pen cent, of the workers were:- Communists. In the following election, so save themselves from this 'menace, 'the German population returned the Hitler party to power. Now, just as in the U.S.S.R., and in the first supreme Soviet, /atheis- tical;- and aposta...
