FRANKLIN WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
FRANKLIN WATER SUPPLY. No better testimony to; the ef ficiency of the Franklin water supply could be given than the fact that although the rainfall for the district during the last four months' has only amounted to 5J inches-^the lowest on record so far as official readings are concerned — the supply -of .water for the township , has proved more mam sumcient ior an purposes lor which it was installed. Whatever doubt the residents previously had about the scheme, it is certain- that, they are now unanimously of the opinion that it was th'e wisest ex penditure that has been undertaken on their behalf. A prominent au thority on public health says he is confident that the ample supply of water available in Franklin this year has been the means of preventing an epidemic of disease, as there is hardly a household in the township that would, have had sufficient tank water to have provided for all needs during the long drawn period of dry weather that the district has1 lately experienced. ....

Scout News STATE INTER-TROOP TROPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
Scout News STATE INTER-TROOP TROPHY. (By N. T. Stihvell, Assistant Distiict Commandant.) ' His Excellency the Governor, who is the Chief 'Scout for Tasmania, has given a cup for competition among the Scout troops of the State'. The details of the competition are not yet known, but the cup is to be won yearly by the best all-round troop in the State. . . ? t Points will be allotted upon such subjects as the planning of the camp site, its gadgets, tidiness, and ef ficiency, and upon the troop's activi ties, such as ambulance, signalling, bush craft, and the correct use of knots and ( lashings. This sounds a a tall* order, but if patrol leaders will get busy and practice with their Scouts, they can in no time become perfect at these subjects. Boys .who went to the corroboree this year will have seen how the troops compared with their own, and I am sure that they are as confident as I am that Huon Scouts can put up a very good fight to capture this cup. We hope in May, or early June, to...
HIS MAJESTY'S. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
HIS MAJESTY'S. Among the most rousing songs talking pictures have given us must , be classified 'Keep on the Bright Side,' brightest of the four melo- ! dies in 'Happy Ever After,' the , Fox released Gaumont British pic- j ture, . coming to His Majesty's Theatre next Saturday. When sung, j as in1 the picture it is, by crowds of 'gay. people, it assumes a rollicking, ' iswaying rhythm, which will have all | who hear it unconsciously beating ' time... The other melodies intrb-' ; duced by this picture' are 'In a Year, in a Day,' a wistful' number, 'iPdor Working Girls' and 'Truly, Rural Gentlemen,' two bright ; CQmedy songs. ; During next month His Majesty's will -present a number of outstand ing British pictures, the biggest of 'these being1 'Red Waggon,' a mag nificent film, which cost £80,000 to produce, and was adapted from Lady Eleanor Smith's famous romance of circus and gipsy life.

Cygnet CONCERT IN TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
Cygnet CONCERT IN TOWN HALL. In the evening following St. Pat rick's Day sports an excellent con cert was held in the Cygnet Town Hall, ? when songs, music and dances of 'an Irish character were given. Two humorous sketches, 'A Grain of Truth' and 'The Bathroom Door,' caused great amusement. Overtures by the Cygnet Joyspreaders' Orches tra were rendered at the commence ment of the first and second half of the progremme. The dancing items were exceptionally good. A gavotte by pupils of the Lymington Convent School was very pretty, and much ap preciated. Little Miss Pauline Sey mour dancedl an Irish jig and the Sailors' hornpipe to perfection. Miss Clare Hobden also gave an excep tionally fine exhibition of dancing. Songs by Miss Frances Lawler, Miss Lila Harvey, Mrs Gibbons, Mr Beck with and Mr Jack Wallace were well encored, as was a pianforte solo by Mr Rex Blackburn. A tableau, 'St. Patrick and the Aneel.' by . the pupils of the Cygnet Convent School was. perhaps the most outstand...
PECULIARITIES OF GRANNY SMITH APPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
PECULIARITIES OF GRANNY SMITH APPLE. In discussing the keeping qualities of apples with Mr J. Trathen of (Messrs Trathen and Hall, Sydney), our representative was informed that the Granny Smith had a unique characteristic in that it kept. best by being stored in the apple house for. four or five weeks, to allow a certain amount of oil to exude from tViPi-n. The apples should then , be wiapped in oil paper and cool stored. If oiled paper is not used the fruit will 'scald,' and if packed immediately after being picked it will not keep satisfactorily. Mr Trathen says that so far as he is aware these fea tures do not apply to any other, arietiesoi' apples.

Correspondence A MISMANAGED INDUSTRY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
Correspondence A MISMANAGED INDUSTRY. To the Editor. ?Sir, — No one can complain against the State Fruit Advisory Board, the Apple and. Pear Council, or. any other representative organisation for trying to make the conditions of the ?fruit industry better than they have been during the past three or four seasons, but criticism can surely be made against the lack of foresight and) the clumsy methods that' have been 'employed in the management of the industry of late. Members of the Advisory' Board admit that the list of recent elimina tions of' ? exportable varieties was drawn, up with the view of ,', raising the prices for the. balance of the crop sent forward. The idea was a good one if the list had comprised varieties that had already proved 'poor sellers, but a reference to account sales made during the depressed-period will show that the. majority of the '. eliminated varieties (so far' as Tasmania is concerned) are the very ? ones that have paid their way; largely because they ...

WIRELESS INTERFERENCE AT WATTLE GROVE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
WIRELESS INTERFERENCE AT WATTLE GROVE. : For some time past owners : of wireless sets at Wattle Grove have hot been able to obtain good recep tion, the cause being attributed' to the presence of , an electric light erected1 by the Marine Board at One Tree Point. The Board has on seve ral occasions been asked to abate the interference, bub did not at first consider, it was their responsibility, as 'the light was there before the wireless.' However, at yesterday's meeting of the Board it was decided on the .motion of Sir John Evans, to procure a suppressor at a cost of about £5, which would prevent the light from interfering ? with wireless reception.

FIRE BRIGADE AT FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
FIRE BRIGADE AT FRANKLIN. ' The establishment of an efficient fire brigade at Franklin has been accomplished at what must be re garded as a minimum of cost to the ratepayers, the Government, and the insurance companies. This was made possible by an unusual set of circumstances. .' The Hobart Fire Brierade haH an'1 imnortant. -nortion of the equipment which was out of date so .far as their plant was concerned, but which was very suitable for Franklin. A central site for the sta tion was obtained at no cost at all, and the water pressure is so great that the employment of a force pump is. unnecessary, a large expen diture in' this direction being there fore- cut bnt. The brigade has the advantage of the services of an ex member of the Hobart brigade, so that it starts off we'll equipped to handle any outbreak of fire that, may occur in the township.
