Latest mail advices indicate that demand, particularly for wor sted fabrics, has been more favourable. That position combined with dimin ished supplies of them in the States, and throughout the world is, no doubt responsible for the increased competition for: them. An easing' has been experienced in pices for the coarser crnssbmls. Values for medium BO's crossbrro topa and 4C's coarse aj-e slightly lower in Bradford. Rates for them, although 5 per ccnt. below January Agues, are still 10 per cent, above the priccs ruling for them at this time last year. tfnf/ke merinos, coarse crossbred# are not scarce and in addition made from them ar* not in as popular demand as the finer fabrics Gratifying features The continued ready sale of A.W.B.C.

BABY CRIES FOR SOME GOOD CAUSE [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 11 March 1949

BABY CRIES FOR SOME GOOD CAUSE This weak'* Maternal and Child Welfare bulletin, issued by the Stat* Health Department, analy ses the ressons which cauce a baby to cry. Generally the bulletin says when a baoy cries, it is a sign that he is uncomiortaole and wants help. He might be hungry he might be thirsty, ihe might have a distended stomach irorn overfeeding, he might want his soiled napkin changed, or his crumpled sheets straightened out. He might want an irritating safety pin moved. He migiht be too hot or too cold. All these physical causes cdn eaBlly be remedied. (But what of the 'psychological or emotional causes? Few-people realise that a baby Is born with. psycholo gical attributes and these are no less important or prominent than his phy sical attrlbues. No two babies are alike in their make up, their needs, or their demands and consequently their care and training need to ibe particularised.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 11 March 1949

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Sir,—Last Sunday afternoon Wan do.-in gave llt/nui a rent Irouucing, not entirely due to the pour display of th-j Roma lads, but mainly due to the Homa selectors. TJiis team chosen to play Wandoan should have been selected from the best players not from the ones who have played the most cricket and are living on their by-gone reputations. iFor instance players like La.verty, Cox and Casewell are hardly up to representative standard. There are plenty of the younger brigade who could easily All their places. J was pleased to sec that one of Colts younger players was choBen, namely Kev Watkins, but there are plenty more 'besides him who should be in the Rep. team instead of some of the old veterans. IFor me, crlckct in Roma is a faroe when It comes to selecting a Rep. team. Taking In mind that IF. Hardeastle, L. Cunningham and C. Legg were un available, here is a team that I have selected in order of preference that would justify selection: IL. PETTIFORO (Colts, C...

NOW THAT THE FLOWERS By Cullen Jones Now Unit In.' Hmvcrs a re gone, and 1 in.i up and down hill calling for tile lust. Bloom to surrender, shivering, I find Myself. recalling voices from the "Sleep by tlie lire, old man; smile as Know th.it this whir Is but the breath of leaves Hustling to rest; know that the winter's scream Ik not earth lamenting, an 1 no tiui grieves.' And shadows rising from my memory's frame— Towering roofs, outrunning thought, the power Of season, storm or light or sound or flame— Itcchant their old psalm to the faith of a flower: "Nothing Is dead, my child; nothing is dying; It is only the wind that you heai sighing."
