The Smart Boy Of Iowa [Newspaper Article] — The Lyndhurst Shire Chronicle — 19 July 1944
fhe Smart Boy Of Iowa Oat in Omaha. America, the o.ficials who hired; men for the Farm Cr-r iit Bureau before the war had one of those highly scientific intelli gence tests to which every candidate v-vis subjected. j These tests included a couple of' catch questions, until a University of Iov.-h graduate turned up for the ex ajn. He was asked two questions— and to the horror of the scientists he answered them both. Here they are: ? How long,' read the question, 'is I piece of string.' 'A Piece of string,' said the bright o y from Iowa, ' is twice the dis in.ce between the centre and either How far,' read the second ques- ^ oil, 'can a dog run into the1 woods?' To which the young Icwan answer- 1 j : 'A dog can run only halfway lC-j the woods. After that, he is run- . out of the woods.' I The joke was on the scientists.

BREACH OF LAW : BIDDING UP OF WAGES IN SHEARING INDUSTRY (To the lZditor) . Sir, — The gravity of inflation in the shearing industry was discussed by the General Council of the Graziers' As sociation early this month. The Pre sident of the Association (Mr. H. R. Cowdery) says: 'The bidding up of rdics tn me inausLry is a Dreacn 01 Commonwealth law both by employer and employee. The position last season disclosed a serious national problem involving the maintenance of the purchasing power of money, the proper movement of manpower in the' shearing industry and of the Commonwealth. Now that the season is reaching its I height, demands for illegal rates of pay arc being intensified. If graziers be oin rr* oivp ur.iv atiH oranf rfiocr» Ao. mands then the whole system of ar bitration will break down. If this hap pens there' will be no standards to work upon.

"Ridiculous" Position At Millthorpe: Mail Trains Stop For Passengers To Alight But Won't Pick Up [Newspaper Article] — The Lyndhurst Shire Chronicle — 26 July 1944
' Ridiculous ' Position At Millthorpe : Mail Trains Stop For Passengers To Alight But Won't Pick Up Millthorpe is an important township, but only on Sunday nig'ht does any Sydney-bound mail train stop there. Lyndhurst Shire Council wants to alter this position, which has been described as 'ridiculous.' ur. Amos, speaking at last meet ing. said the trains ceased stopping a considerable time ago as a result of the coal shortage. When Millthorpe people wanted to travel, they had to hire a car and go to Blayney — or go to a great deal of trouble in catching an earlier train to Blayney or Or ange. If anyone was travelling west from Orange and wanted to get off at Millthorpe, the train would stop, but it. would not nink nn nassenp-prs. The station lights were on, and the staff was there. President Innes: I agree heartily with what you say. The trains should stop at Millthorpe. On the motion of Crs. Amos and Hood, it was decided to request Mr. R. E. O'Halloran, M.L.A., to make strong repre...
