THE WORLD OF SPORT FOOTBALL A ONE-MAN GAME TUMUT MAKES HACKS OF GUNDAGAI [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 27 August 1928

THE WORLD OF SPORT «» FOOTBALL A ONE-MAN GAME TUMUT MAKES HACKS OF GUNDAGAI Yesterday Gundagai were taught a lesson — they had been resting on their laurels, after defeating Tumut, last Wednesday week, £lnd imagined that they were 'too good' to A)ther about training. Tumut knockea that idea out of their head — from1 the kick-off till the sound of the' final whistle Tumut never looked like los ing the O'Farrell Cup, and rail out winners by 27 points to 3. The mar gin should have been greater, for Marsh would certainly have scored at least three more tries had he played selfishly,. Right through the game Marsh starred, and with Gilbert, Shumack dnd Hawke,- he scored all the points — in fact it was Marsh who started all movments which gave Tumut their tries. . If there is a better footballer in the South than Marsh he has not yet donned a jersey. The Gundagai team was certainly a weak one, — nearly all boys — but they should have done ;better. Several of those in yesterday's game must ...

YASS Despite its urgency no practical progress appears to have been made in the all-important matter of re moving the Blacks' Camp, from its present site alongside the town water cnr\Ti7-\7 r-iOm TMia olfJovmon urif-li voali_ sation of the grave risk involved took prompt and, apparently, effective action after neglecting the matter for months. Their demand that the po sition should be remedied was met with in a most sympathetic spirit by the Government Health Authori ties end the Aborigines' Board. It was agreed that it was urgent the ? camp should be removed. A new site was selected, and that seems to be as far as the matter has got. A pretty and popular -wedding took place on Monday last at the Metho dist Church, when Francis Dorothy, second eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chown, of Goondah, was mar ried to Harry Rawsop, eldest son of Mrs. A.

The Bottom Square SO SAYS KEN HOAD [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 27 August 1928

The Bottom Square SO SAYS KEN HOAD On Thursday night last Mr. Ken Hoad, M.L.A., addressed a meeting at Gundagai in opposition to Pro hibition. The meeting, was easily the best attended of the campaign, and Mr. Hoad lucidly dealt with his subject. The question to be considered, he said, was not Drunkenness versus So briety, but of 'Method of Reform.' The introduction of Prohibition was essentially an 'extremist' . mea sure and opposed to the policy of' gradual reform that we have been following for years past. It would seem that the problem could be divided' into sections — the primary nnpst.ion of 'desirahilitv.' and the secondary question of 'practicabili- j ty.' As regards 'desirability,' itj was a question for one's own con science, whether a gradual reform or a violent prohibitiona'ry measure was preferable. But as regards the second point of 'practicability,' the public should give grave considera tion to the huge increase in taxa tion that must be imposed if a 'Yes' vote is ea...

PROHIBITION A FAILURE METHODIST PREACHER'S STATEMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 30 August 1928

PROHIBITION A FAILURE METHODIST PREACHER'S STATEMENT ? In the Pittsburgh press in June of this year, appeared the following statement by the Rev. C. W. Tins- j ley ,? Pastor of the West view Metho dist Episcopal Church, Pittsburgh, rennsyivania: — 'After eight long years, Volstead ism has not produced the results hoped for. It gives no real promise of being, in the long run, and on the whole, the best 'method' of dealing with the gigantic drink evil. It must . be judged nationally — not through ^ mere individual impressions of its workings. They are largely worth less. however sincere. 'The saloon is gone — but speak easies and bootleggers are here in even greater numbers — so said! Gen eral Andrews. Better an open foe than one skulking in the dark. The present situation is intolerable and steadily grows worse. Because the whole, devilish .business does not openly show itself many good people imagine that it does not exist — a vain and harmful delusion. 'They say 'liquor drinking ha...

HE'S GOT A TICK "YOU GIVE ME TOO MUCH HONOR." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 30 August 1928

HE'S GOT A TICK 'YOU GIVE ME TOO MUCH HONOR.' Gundagai P.P. Board must award F. Gown, of Lynbrook, Bongongo, the palm as being the most persistent correspondent it has. All his trou bles are about the rabbits his neigh bors nave ana tne raomts mat ne does not own. At last Tuesday's meeting he fired another literary pom-pom. In it he told how he had read in the local papers about the Inspector's report at last Board meeting about the rabbits out his way. He queriedi the statement that a trapper had left an adjoining property because he could not make a living there. Why, the man had confided to him that he could do well there all winter time. When the Inspector asserted that the bulk of the rabbits came off liis pro perty. he was, so Mr. Gown said, 'giving him too much hohor.' These rabbits were more likely to stay in the acres of warrens on the other side of. tlir- ff-nrr-.

OUR DRY AUGUST WILL 1914 HISTORY BE REPEATED ?

And the drought,-that came in its wake was one that is still sadly remembered. j Compared with tWc average Au-' gust rainfall of the 10 previous years the present month — with its 87 points fail — is 195 pbin?-5 behind the. average. Over a period years we have had only three A r-- j jiu&Ls uicin uie present ajie— (7 points), 1903 (57 points) and 1902 (45 points).
