Correspondence. FINDING WORK. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934
Correspondence. FINDING WORK. To the Editor. Sir, — Rice, the emblam of fer tility, is still frequently thrown at weddings. Next time someone is engaged in thus perpetuating this ancient custom, he should remem ber, if only momentarily, what the rice industry has done for Australia. Those interested in importing and the 'do nothinW'— who belie their name only, in producing criticism — always asserted that rice would never be profitably grown in the Common- - wealth. The brilliant idea of giving it a eucalyptus taint like our to bacco, was overlooked. There was, however, the climate and lack of water to fall back upon. California, however, was then successfully growing rice. Figures which have just .been published about rice pro duction! — the youngest of our pri- 1 mary industries— are arresting. They ^ , ^how, indubitably, that a policy of growing or making what is required - , here, not only keeps money in Aus tralia, but provides work — that elusive luxury which every nation is t...

Obituary MR. JAMES C. HARRIS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934
Obituary MR. JAMES C. HARRIS. A gloom was cast over the district by the sudden- death from pneumonia at the Young Hospital, N.S.W., of Mr James C. Harris, in his 46th year. He was the fourth son of Mr James Harris, sen., of Garden Island Creek. The late Mr J. C. Hax-ris was born at 'Hobart in 1888, but was brought to Garden Island Creek by his parents as a child', and spent most of his life there. A few years ago he established a hop field in the dis trict, and demonstrated that hops could be grown equal to anything in the Derwent Valley, but the slump in the hop market forced him to abandon the venture after sinking in it all his capital. He then decided to move to New South Wales, where he was engaged in- the fruit industry. ? Mr Harris took a keen interest in all sport, and any forward move ment for the betterment of the dis trict had his whole-hearted support. He leaves a wife (nee Blackmore), two daughters and a son, to whom the deepest sympathy is extended. His father, Mr Jame...
60 Bushels an Acre HIGH WHEAT YIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934
60 Bushels an Acre HIGH WHEAT YIELDS. In the experimental plots con ducted by the Agricultural Depart ment of .Victoria at .the Longerenong Agricultural College, wheat yields of more than 60 bushels to the acre were obtained last year. These ex periments have been conducted since 1912, that farmers on the Wimmera black soils may be provided' with a reliable guide ' as to the best practices. , At no stage- in the year was growth materially checked, and the average return from the variety j trials was 52 bushels; an acre.. The highest yield was. by the crossbred Canberra X Hard Federation, which returned1 61.4 bushels to the acre. Then followed Nizam 57.8, and Free: Gallipoli 55.7. I The .report states the Crossbred ' Canberra X Hard! Federation; has not ' given consistently high returns, and I therefore has not been recommended ' to farmers.

The Centenary THE WORLD'S GREATEST AIR RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934
The Centenary THE WORLD'S GREATEST AIR RACE. Where the air race will finish is a big ' question for Sir McPherson Robertson's Air .Race Committee. The whole arrangements for the air race: are in the hands of a subcom mittee of the Centenary Council, which will report shortly when the proposed landing place and the site of the air pageant will be widely dis cussed. The- need for accommoda tion for a huge crowd has led to the proposal that one of the racecourses be utilised, and the Moonee Valley course, which has the advantage of a large polo ground in the centre, that would1 make an ideal landing place, is regarded as a possible site, although it lacks the space for spec totars possessed by the Flemington course. Interest in the air race continues unabated — the interest is constantly stimulated1 by news of big machines being ordered by overseas competi tors'. At least 30 entries are ex pected, but it is possible that this number will be largely increased when the closing date comes...

V.C. FOR A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934
. ' , V.C. FOR A DOG. ? Bob : of Carmel, an Alsatian dog, owned by Mr Elliott Durham, late of California, was adjudged the bravest dog in California, and was presented with a gold medal. He salved his master's life on two oc casions. He was in his master's car when, it caught fire. He warned' his master, who drove the car into ia ditch. The master was unconscious. Bob, seeing the danger, did not hesi tate, but sprang to the rescue. He dragged 'his master, to safety, and was severely burned in doing so. At a later date his master was walkirig near the edge of a cliff when, he slipped over the edge owing to the loose earth. He grabbed a small shrub, but his weight was too much. The dog, seeing the danger, crawled over' and grasped his master by the coat collar. Both were slipping when friends came along and pulled them to safety. Had it not been for the dog Mr Durham would have crashed to the bottom before as sistarice could have arrived. Bob has now added another brave deed to his cr...
WHERE THE MONEY GOES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 March 1934
WHERE THE MONEY GOES. Coniplaints have frequently been made in these columns about the disparity between the money paid by consumers for primaiy produce and the returns that the grower receives. The most remarkable instance of this which we have come across recently , was given puDiicity in ine Mel bourne press last week, when the secretary of the Housewives' As sociation of that city made the fol lowing comments on the result of the association's efforts to assist, the. black currant growers of Tasmania by purchasing their produce as they had done in previous years. The writer pointed out that owing to the disastrous fires in Tasmania, the quantity of black currants available for export to Melbourne this seaor was only 96lb, on which the follow - ing charges were exacted before the grower gets his share :— Tasmahian charges: Wharfage and entry, 6d; railage, 2/3; agency and attendance, 1/6; bill of lading and stamp, 9d; labor at wharf, 6d; and shipping company's or agents' charges t...
