IT IS A DISEASE THAT AFFLICTS THE COUNTRY [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 4 April 1924

IT is A DISEASE THAT AFFLICTS ' THE COUNTRY ? , Every Association of men on the land suffers from that dreadful disease, Apathy. Many men are too apathetic to join, and . numbers of those who do join are too apathetic to take any active interest in the organisation. It is hard, to war against apathy. Mr. J. N. Scott, organiser in the Primary Producers' Union, told the an nual meeting/ of the Executive that the membership roll had remained prac tically stationery during the year. 'There is a good deal of apathy,' he said, 'among members, especially when it was a matter of attendance at branch meetings.' 'More vigorous organisation,' he added, 'was necessary if the Union was to make further progress.' Ef forts, he suggested, should be made to make branch meetings more education al and attractive. In every Association of primary pro ducers much the same story can bo told.. After you get your member, and that is hard work, as every or ganiser will tell you, the problem is to get him to ...

Come In and Help [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 4 April 1924

Come In and Help Apathy is by no means a disease con fined' to the country. We get it everywhere. Even the people in the cities put up with all sorts of injustices and absurdities at the hands of local authorities and Governments, just be cause we are too apathetic to bring about reform. Governing bodies can always reckon on the apathy of the governed. That Is part of the tra gedy I Still seeing how the country is being treated and knowing how much depends upon effective organisation, every good effort should be made to overcome the apathy of members. It is only with -members taking keen, enthusiastic interest in theni that the organisations can do the best work. Such interest and enthusiasm is all-important. Too many people have the active work 'of an organisation to a handful of . enthusiasts. We are thankful for this handful, anjl we recognise the in valuable part they aro playing in- the good work. . But still, much more could be accomplished if only the rank and file would show...

The Complete Nash A CAR FOR THE COUNTRY. MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 4 April 1924

The Complete Nash A CAR FOB THE COUNTRY. MAN. There is one acid test that can be applied to prove the worth of Nash cars, and that is the success which the manufacturers of these models have .won, despite old established competi tion on the nart' of other factories. It is barely seven years since the Nash . factory opened its doors. That the car should have won a popular position on the American market despite the fact, that it was launched 011 a sea of competition shows indisputably that its qualities are of sterling worth. ' A similar comparison may be. made regarding its success on the local mar ket, Although scarcely a year has ' gone by since the Nash made its ap peart\nce in' New South Wales,, the car m question will now be found in every ? corner of : the State. That it had mani fold merits was demonstrated by the quick fame it won in America, but ? more important still is its local popu larity, which demonstrates that it is well able to stand up to the gruelling wear and tea...

LOCATING A BEARING KNOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 4 April 1924

LOCATING A BEARING KNOCK. , Half the difficulty of dropping the crahk-case and tightening a buriied or loosened connecting rod bearing is met by first making- a correct diag nosis of the trouble. A very simple yet effective way to discover the bear ing causing the knock is to cut out each spark plug, in turn, while tho motor is idling, This is done with a long screw driver exactly as in test ing a plug. When the screw driver is removed from the end of the plug and the cylinder head the sudden fir ing of the respective cylinder will give the piston a downward thrust suffi cient to make tho connecting rod bear ing knock, if it ia loose.. A lot of time and effort is saved through locat ing the knock in this way before ac tually going at the job.

DEPENDS ON THE GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 4 April 1924

DEPENDS ON THE GIRL. Dear 'Planets,' — We are having a beautiful shower of rain here this afternoon. It has been raining o/f and on ever since Christmas, and there is herbage and weeds of all kinds growil'g. Our flower garden is just a mass ot weeds, 1 started to weed it, but did not get very much done. I intended doing a little this afternoon, but now it is raining, so that puts an end to it. The debates on girls' careers were very good. 'Wandering Jew' wrote some very interesting letters? although 1 did not agrea with all she said. I think that if a girl wishes to leave home, slip should be allowed to go into the world and see what she can do. If she \yishes to stay at home, well apd good, she should stay. Some giris prefer city life to the country. I love the country. What is better than a good lively horse to ride and drive. One feels freer in the country — I do, anyway. 1 like to go to the city for a holiday. I love tennis; I think it great sport. There is a court at Fern Hill,...

SIDELIGHTS ON TRACK AND WHEEL-BASE. THEIR INFLUENCE ON A CAR'S BEHAVIOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 4 April 1924

SIDELIGHTS ON TRACK AND WHEEL-BASE. THEIR INFLUENCE ON A CAR'S BEHAVIOUR. : One of the features of modern small cfrr design is the variation in practice of the designers as regards the rela tive proportions of wheel-base and ; trick. if Thus we Eee some of the smal ler cars with very narrow tracks and long wheelbases, while we have at the opposite extreme — and in very good company— some cars with the track very wide compared with the- wheel-base. Two points enter into the considera tion of this matter. Where the mak ers have discarded the differential gear; it will generally be found that they have kept the track width down as narrow as possibly consistent with stability. This seems a sensible pro position, and need not be used as an argument against the differential-less back axle. Wo know of cars which aro giving good results where these condi tions prevail. Tho doing away with the differential gear is a matter upon which opinions may very well be al lowed to vary ; there are so ...

SEE AUSTRALIA FIRST. Dear 'Planets,' — It does - one good to see 'Lucerne' and 'Romford' back in Sydney and looking so well after their three yeavs at the- islands. We have just spent a week-end with them and two other young friends at Lane Cove. One night we had a picture show on the breakfast room wall, and had great fun and plenty- of laughter, es pecially at a monkey — a tin one really-^-that performed wonderful feats on a bar. 'Lucerne' lias a lantern With plenty of slides, and they are really very interesting, especially as the photography is all his own work. My mate and I have not long re turned from a trip down the coast. The scenery is very .fine, and, being our first trip by motor, we enjoyed it very much. Two of my sisters were with us on the downward journey and We camped put, It was my first ex perience of a night in the open with the stars aboye.
