DERWENT VALLEY Social, Sporting, Industrial Overseas Markets IMPROVED OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

DERWENT VALLEY Social, Sporting, Industrial (By Special Correspondents) Overseas Markets IMPROVED OUTLOOK. Messrs T. Boss-Walker Pty. Ltd. writes: — Tasmanian orchardists have had a very harassing experience in connection with their overseas ship merits during the past two seasons, and the majority of them are at pre sent in a very difficult, and in some cases critical, position. On both occasions the ruinous prices which | they received for their consignments were due, in the main, not to any inherent weakness in the market, or there would not have been the enor mous quantities of apples that there were bought f.o.b. by English firms; nor would the exceedingly liberal 'guaranteed' advances have been given that were on consignments on an even larger quantity of fruit by other firms, but to three specific causes, all of them originating on this side of the world, and all of them, happily, removed this_ season. These causes were, first, the inability of 'the trade' in England to obtai...

NEW NORFOLK SWIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

NEW NORFOLK SWIMMING. Conditions were against a large attendance at the first outing of the newly-formed New Norfolk Swim ming and Life Saving Club. There were about 400 people to see the display of life saving and' swimming by the Royal Life Saving Club of Tasmania and the New Norfolk Qliib. Much credit is due to the Hobart members in givinsr a fine disnlav. in adverse weather. Wintry conditions prevailed all the after-noon, whicK made - it unpleasant for spectators and competitors. A collection was taken up, which realised' a fair sum. The following are the results of the swimming races: — The trans-Derwent swimming race created much interest, there being a very close finish of all competitors. J. Harrison 1, D. Newman 2, T. W.

UPPER DERWENT THE WEATHffR. ' j The weather continues to be dry. Wednesday, February 28, was hot and oppressive, with a thunderstorm.' in the evening, and a little .rain fell. Last Sunday was very cool. The . hills are dry and some of them almost bare of grass. The irrigated pas- ' tures of Messrs R. 0. and D. M.I Shoobridge at/Glenora, and- V. W.'j Shoobridge, 'CJloverlea,' are a pic- ' ture of ' verdant green, . and- visitors . passing through ' the district com ment favorably on them. In many of the hop fields the hops are ripen ing too fast for the pickers. One field in the , district has been left intact because of damage by wind a few weeks ago. As. the whole crop was damaged it ; was ' decided to abandon the idea of picking. To bacco and apple picking is in full swing at present.' \ CHURCH ARMY. .

COLD-STORED APPLES. CAUSE OF BROWN HEART [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934

COLD-STORED APPLES. CAUSE OF BROWN HEART ? — ' , ?-- -I It is agreed' by most authorities that browni ! heart in cold-stoxed apples is, caused by an. insufficiency of. carbim dioxide. Mr 'Willis ' J. Williams,' Superintendent of . Mar kets, N.S.W., according to an . ex change, has -something to say on this, subject. ?. :It. is .a well-known fact that fruit ?npenls after it has been removed from the' tree; taking in oxygen from the air and: giving off carbon dio xide., ;The, amount-, of carbon ' dioxide j that is given r off is relative to ' ; the i temper atiire,- / the higher the tem perature the larger-;, 'the amount. There is a danger, when no venitila tion is ' provided '.;in the ; cold-storage room, or when there.' is no means ' of changing the air, that the percentage of carbon , dioxide will/accumulate to such ah| extent as to cause- ' brown heart to develop in the fruit. On no account ' should the percentage: of carbon dioxide exceed 15 per1 cent. A great advantage, in keepi...

NEW HUON [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934

NEW HUON 'Michael and Mary,' the British production, which will be shown at the New Huon this Saturday, is one chock-a-block full of real sincerity. The story is woven around one of the world's greatest problems, which might even now be occurring in your own community. In the hands of anybody else this picture might not have escaped that taint of un pleasantness which seems to be the basis of all dramatic romances in the past. 'Tis just a simple story with a world full of meaning, and the stellar roles of Michael and Mary are in the hands, of Edna Best and Herbert Marshall, .making this pic ture an outstanding tribute to the genius of British pictures. It is a delightful romance of London in the nineties, and was adapted from the famous play by A. A. : Milne. 'The Old Man,' a comedy-draipa, by Edgar. Wallace, with Maisie Gay, the original Mrs 'Arris, in the leading role, is the . associate picture; . .
