TIRE OUTPUT IN 1915 WORTH 250,000,000 DOLLARS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
\ TIRE OTJTPUT IN 1915 WORTH 250,000,000 DOLLARS. According t."» the manufacturing plans of the thirty large rubber-tyre companies in the Uni ted States, thei^- output during the present cal endar year will^exeeed 11,000,000 tyres, of an average value o. 20 ctollars at retail. The re maining smaller companies, supplying local trade only, produce about 1,000,000 tyres in twelve months, worth 18 to 22 dollars a piece. The total value of tyres used in 1915, including solid tyres for trucks, tyres for 'busses and taxicabs, amounts therefore to 250,000,000 dol lars in round numbers. To this sum should be added about 20(-,000 motor-cycle tyres, worth from 5 to 10 do'lars each.
A WAITING GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
A WAITING GAME. The great war will be decided 011 the West ern front, either in Prance and Flanders, or on, or within the German frontier. There has been much talk of this war as being a war of exhaustion. If it should prove to be that, it will be an exhaustion not of munition, not of economic resources, but of men. The vast scale on which this war is being fought prevents it being decided by any one great decisive action —the campaign against Eussia- by Germany has proved that. The great nations engaged in this war have such vast resources back of them that all talk of defeat through exhaustion is absurd. Defeat will come through lack of men to put into the line. When the fighting line thins out beyond a certain minimum with which it can be held, the enemy will break through, communications will be cut, and the whole line of an embattled nation will be thrown baek in defeat. The Allies realise this, a&d they are fighting their fight upon this basis. The central powers have'...

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WAR. (HILAIRE BELLOC.) [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WAR. j (H1LAIRE BELLOC.) There has been during the la3t week or two | an increasing ill.ease among the public of j this country, and that ill-ease may very ^ largely be referred to a feeling that has sprung up with a curious suddenness '1 that we are not getting the truth about the war.'' Personally; I beleve that that feeling has not sprung up spontaneously. I believe it has been engineered. But it must be ad mitted-that tbe circumstances were favour able because a very long period without de. cisive results had passed, and on the top of it came the new developn^knfeiiij the Balkans, the cg^avity of which it wag. very easy to exaggerate' in Great Britain, because (upon the mere map, without a consideration of veal numbers, real distances and the communica tions of the Levant) it seemed immediately to threaten Egypt and even India. • I propose to ask my readers this week to consider* reasonably just what the importance of news is for the civilian population durin...

BERT VARCOE WITH A BROKEN ARM. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
BERT YARCOE WITH A BROKEN ARM. Bert Varcoe,of the motor garage, one of our popular young men, struck trouble, and struck it bad, oir Thursday morning. He was about to start out on a trip at about 7 •'clock, and was cranking the engine, when it back-fired, sending Bert into the air. The handle smacked him severely on the wrist, breaking one bone in two places, and splintering another. There was no trip for Bert thai day, so he betook himself to Dr. Poet, who described the breaks as amongst the worst he had struck. It was found necessary to administer ehloioforin before the bones could be set. The victim is now laid up at his home, and it will be some little time before he again takes hold of the wheel. Bert will be missed off the road, for he is a very competent driver. : ,
