SHOOTERS ENDANGER LIVESTOCK [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 14 July 1950
SHOOTERS ENDANGER LIVESTOCK Marshall Mount dairy farmers are developing a marked hos tility to week-end shooters be cause of the danger they present to valuable livestock, the 'Daily Mercury's' Albion Park corres pondent writes. He said a two-year-old heifer, owned by Mr. H. D. Stewart, had fallen dead in her tracks this week after being struck by a bullet presumably from a care less shooter's rifle. Mr. Stewart found the beast .dead on Monday morning. He had inspected his stock on Sun day' morning and found them all in health condition, including the heifer killed. Were he ever so benighted and forgetful of his high calling, there is always hope in a man who actually and earnestly works. — Carlyle.
"STRINGS" TO THE FREE TREE ISSUE [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 14 July 1950
'STRINGS' TO THE FREE TREE ISSUE IT APPEARS there has been a certain amount of mis understanding regarding the City Council's decision to distribute trees for planting by the public. The thousands of trees at the Bulli Nursery, it seems, are not lo be avail able simply to everyone' with sufficient love of trees to want to plant one in his home yard or garden, but only for street planting, or use by tree-planting organisations and the schools. If this is so, it is a pity. It may be unorthodox for a council to give away thousands of trees, at no charge and without any 'strings' to as many ^people as would appre ciate one. Bui on mature consideration, why not? Provided there is reasonable assurance that a citizen wants a, tree ? for his own use, and will make good use of it, why not let him have it? THERE NEED BE. no fear — unfortunately — of any over whelming rush. There are not as many tree-lovers in tho community as that. But if people who do admire trees were encouraged to take adv...

'Australia and N.Z. Have World's Best Working Conditions' SYDNEY, Thursday. — Australians and New Zealanders enjoy the best labour conditions in the world, according to a Research Service survey of ''some aspects of labour conditions in Australia and other countries.' The report, published today, says the United States is the only other contender for this position, but the high rate of unemployment with its conse quent feeling of insecurity, cou pled with the lack of uniform ity in labour conditions, places it in second position.. Following Australia, New Zea land and the U.S. come Canada and the Scandinavian countries, with Eastern European coun tries and Soviet Russia last. Research Service, pointing out that it is of no use comparing money wage rates between dif ferent countries, has made the comparison between ? relative wage fates in terms of the amount of food that can be pur chased. However, it says, while Aus tralians and New Zealanders have cheap food, tfye amount of his wa...
