Visiting Mildura [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 5 February 1944

Visiting Mildura By C. M. Neylon. ---- The historic town of Wentworth has not changed greatly since my last visit, but the Darling River, backed up by lock No. 10, looked more im pr essive. On the return journey we distributed a busload of strapping youngsters from Wentworth school through Curwaa and Coomealla, and then on the uninhabited stretch to Mildura the 'bus tore over red pine ridges and grey box flats, with rat tling body and flagging tail shaft Then we drove sedately over the bridge, turned into the westering sun. and found ourselves in the city once again. In my last article I referred to the Psyche barrage. This was a tempo rary regulating weir, designed by the writer and constructed across the Murray below the Psyche Bend pump. ing station during the drought of 1914-15. A similar work, but of dif ferent design, was started simultan eously by the Victorian Water Com mission at Merbein. By working two shifts Mildura got in first and con trolled the river. This caused some...

The Creation of a Sanctuary [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 5 February 1944

The Creation of a Sanctuary By Robert Eadie, M.B.E. The floods caused great damage throughout the country and our efforts in establishing the sanctuary were rudely affected by the exceptional rainfall. On arrival at the sanctuary I found Mr. Mowle (who was then president) and a gang of men busily engaged in taking precautions to mini mice the damage which threatened a great part of the area. Those people who only know the Badger Creek as a delightful little stream, with its crystal clear water gurgling and bubbling over the water worn stones and pebbles, have no con ception of what it can become when roused to fury by heavy rainfall in the upper reaches. With very little warning" the attractive little stream becomes a raging torrent, the yellow waters carry in their course trees and debris of, every description, which are deposited in places which block the flow of the stream. This, however, is only for a moment, for the torrent turns aside and cuts out a new river bed for itself. T...

Healesville Gymkhana TO AID NEW HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 5 February 1944

Hea!esville Gymkhana TO AID NEW HOSPITAL. The hospital sports committee held a gymkhana on Queen's Park oval ou Monday" (Anniversary Day) to aid the hospital building fund. Entries com pared fovorably with the recent sports, but the weather was far from 'ideal for such an occasion, the temperature; reaching the century mark and be ing responsible for a smaller attend ance. The 450 present were treated to an extra good program, and, despite toe heat, thoroughly enjoyed the feasr of entertainment provided, conducted in the usual efficient manner. Hunting events were keenly contested, with the standard of jumping even better than that of previous meetings. Novel ty' horse events - musical chairs, Gretna Green and bobbing for apples -more than justified their place on the program, and caused much excite ment, especially the bobbing for event, wherein competitors had to catch in their mouths apples flotinr.g in a tub of water. The fruit was "so elusive that competitors got as far into th...

THE WATER PROBLEM TRUST TO PETITION FOR RECONSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 5 February 1944

THE WATER PROBLEM TRUST TO PETITION FOR RECONSTRJCTION. -4--e Interest at the meeting of the Healesville Waterworks Trust on Tuesday centred around complaints of water shortage on high levels, and from the discussion which ensued it became evident that until a greater volume of water is available for peak demand some form of rationing will be necessary. Accordingly it was decided to pro hibit the use of fixed wdtering devic es throughout the water reticulation area during February and March, be tween noon and i) p.m. It is expected that this restriction will make avail able an ample supply of water for domestic purposes to all levels. On a number of occasions members of the trust have desired to know de tails of conditions under which water is obtained from the Badger Creek and the Graceburn aqueduct. The for mer is covered by an agreement which permits the trust to take a six-inch pipe from the board's 15-inch main, giving a total of 300,000 gallons per day. The water from the Grac...

Appreciation To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 12 February 1944

Appreciation To the Editor. Sir,-A few'weeks ago a report re lating to the building fund of the Healesville Bush'Nursing Hospital ap peared in the 'Healesville Guardian," the report being submitted by the sec retary of the hospital, Mr. R. R. Coch ran. The figures given in the report no doubt not only aroused the interest but as well a feeling of pleasure i? the minds of readers interested in the welfare and progress .of Healesville anad district. Indeed, the meteoric, rise of this furid is phenomenal. Dur-' ing the past two years Liberty Loans, Red Cross appeals, Comforts Fund and other such appeals, in their ag gregate, must amount to many thou sands of pounds; but despite these many recourses to the public pocket the hospital building fund to-day shows a total of £2678, and. is still in creasing. Probably this. magnificent achieve ment is largely due to two things. First, the generosity of the many do nors, whose contributions range from 10/- to £100 and over; a number of remarka...
