IT'S A HARSH LIFE FOR OLD PENSIONERS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 18 May 1951

[?] Have you^ever seen the lost, bewildered look in the .sunken eyes «of an ageing man or woman .' of small means as they try to grapple with the economic problem that faces them at the end of a long and hard life? Have you watched them puzzle over the absurd anomally of our Pensions Act, which denies them the old age pension Jf they have property other than a house worth more than £760 and yet gives it to them if they own and live in 'a house worth thousands. The provision in the Pensions Act no doubt had validity when the Act was passed. Houses were plentiful, it was an excel lent system to encourage old ioik to nave weir own cukut&c and their raref lilly tended gard en. With their* home grown vegetables and probably a few chickens they could live with reasonable eqmfort on their pension. Not only could they live free from any great hardship, but ;hey had a real interest in what they were doing. Their hearts were warmed by the love of their own corner, as their hands were ...

IS WOOL BOOM ENDING? [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 18 May 1951

[?] Is Australia's record shat tering wool boom slowly ' deflating? Anxious . manufacturers and wool experts are asking this as they watch prices drift lower at successive auctions. Since the. peak in March when wool Jut the record average of £255 a bale, the price has fallen by more than 30 per cent., points out the Melbourne Her ald. To-day it is estimated that wool catalogues — slightly lower in quality as the season ends — are averaging only £165 a bale. On a full season's clip this would represent a loss to grow ers of more than £325 million. The market 'does not seem to have reached bottom. At Mel bourne sales this week prices have dropped by from 5 per cent, to 10 per cent. At the last auctions prices again eased slightly. Every day buyers receive cables cutting their buying limit further. One wool expert said: 'Any man with brains is going to sell. me marKet is weaKening an me time. You can see it falling even during an afternoon's sell ing. 'Everyone knew this reason's valu...

AMAZING SUCCESS OF FOOTBALL CLUB'S DANCE FOR EDCAR CORCORAN FUND The Boorowa Football Club contributed the out standing sum of £188/14/6 to the Edgar Corcoran Fund as a result of a dance held in the Guild Hall last Saturday night. The public supported the dance in large numbers, there being strong representation from . Uoorowa and outlying centres. However, it was the generous spirit of tlie people, rather than the numbers, which made the function such an outstanding success. It would be impossible to name all the willing workers who assisted Mr. Herb Smith, secretary of the Football Club, but mention must be made of Miss Amy Green, Messrs. Fur ner Dwyer, Austin Bobbin; who toiled unceasingly throughout the night. A guessing competition con ducted by Miss Green realised £14, and the prize which was won by Mr. T. Osborne, was very generously re-donated. The re-donated prize was auctioned in another £17, before it was finally knocked down to Mr. Jack Glover, of Binalong, for £5/5/-. N...
