Shop Locally AN APPEAL TO BUYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
Shop Locally AN APPEAL TO BUYERS. (By 'COUNTRY TRADER.') i One of the difficulties of countiy storekeepers is the modern tendency for people to go away from home for their purchases. The phrase, 'Distant Fields Look Gieenest,' is more applicable to the country man's (and more especially the country woman's) trading than in any other -community interest. (Ji course, one is aware of the all too ready ? excuse that is usually offered — the ^ city shops give a wider selection. ? There may be some justification for this in a few special lines, but for ? the great bulk of everyday require . ments, just as satisfactory purchases ? jean be obtained from the average country store, as from anywhere ? Seise, and there is the advantage of ? | saving the cost of travelling and the - . Iloss of time. There should be more ; J co-operation, too, between the trader . '* and his customers — a get-together Ispiiit, so that each will understand . 1 the other's point of view, and I thereby arrive at mea...
THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
THE PRINCE. Crammed full of tuneful melo dies, and the best talent that Broad way, Hollywood, and- the radio air waves have to offer, 'Moonlight and Pretzels,' which opens at the Prince of Wales Theatre on Saturday, is one of the most cleverly mounted, fast moving, and refreshing screen musieals made to date.. Roger Pryor, youthful, hero of many Broadway stage hits, as George Dwight, and Mary Brian as Sally Upton, are ideally cast as the young lovers, and Leo . Carrillo and Herbert Rawlinson give two of the best char acter performances in their long and brilliant screen careers. Here is good news for Prince patrons. Slim Summerville and Zasu Pitts, the screen's funniest comedy team, appear in the supporting film entitled 'Her First Mate,' most hilarious of their Universal pictures. As husband' and' wife, they are the centre of a side-splitting tale, which is filled1 with laughable incidents and complications, which will keep you in a continual roar of laughter. Slim cackles with mer...

Ryan, who has taken a . foremost interest in the formation of a fire brigade at Franklin, re- .. ported to the Huon Council last Monday that a reply had been re ceived' by the secretary of the brigade to. the application for a subsidy to wards the local contribution of £50. stating that both the Government and the Fire Brigades Association could! net comply with the request until an are 1 had been defined and TazeUcd. He therefore moved that the area be from Jackson's Point to Swanrp Road.

The motion -was seconded by Cr. Hay, supported by Cr. White, and carried. Cr.

Water Supply THE HUONVILLE-RANELAGH PROPOSAL. CONSIDERED BY HUON COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
Water, Supply THE HUONVILLE-RANELAGH PROPOSAL. CONSIDERED BY HUON COUNCIL. At last Monday's meeting of the Huon Municipal Council, Warden G. C. Frankcomb said that in con-: formity with the resolution passed in . November, a public meeting was held in the Huonville Town - Hall to dis ;:uss the -proposal to draw water i'vnm . - ProhV tin cnnnlv LRanelagh- and : Huonville, , The .meei :'ng had been reported in the 'Huon Times,' ! and - there- was no necessity to add further to this. There were probably .150 ratepayers present, tut mot' - more - than ? about a dozen expressed their views on the scheme, and it was. not possible therefore to ' say definitely whether the meeting was opposed to the proposal or to any scheme for providing the rfis j trict with a water supply. The chief point of discursi^r was the capacity of the Blackfish Creek to supply the quantity of water necessary for the r.rea defined, and on this there seemed to be a great conflict of opinion.

ALL-BRITISH THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
ALL-BRITISH THEATRE. Mr S. E. Burgess, manager of His Majesty's Theatre, who returned [from Sydney last week, announces 'that on December 30 his theatre will pass completely from Greater Union Theatres Ltd. to the control of a newly-formed' organisation known as Associated British Theatres, and therefore will be devoted1 to the showing of the finest British films.; The directors of Associated' Brit ish Theatres point out that long years of freedom from any serious molestation of competition have enabled American film producers to establish throughout the Common wealth highly ramified business or ganisation. One inevitable _ result of this has been that British -pictures have' had scant opportunity afforded them of being viewed and' judged while their appeal was fresh and unhackneyed. On the contrary, they have been' constrained to bide their time and defer to the privileged priority of American interests when seeking an outlet. Plans which have been quietly maturing for a year or mo...
