POSTWAR PLANNING ON REGIONAL LINES By the Director of the Rationing Commission, Dr. H C. Coombs. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 4 February 1943
POSTWAR PLANNING ON REGIONAL UNES By the Director of the Rationing Commission, Or. H C. Coombs. The tendency of the last century, particularly In Australia has been to concentrate industry in the large cen tres. More than half our population and the major part of our industry are in the six metropolitan areas of the capital cities of our States. These capital cities are, when judged by human standards, failures ... in social organization. They are neither beautiful, healthy nor efficient. We must be prepared to move on industries —to decentralize them, to plan their location so that not merely do we get efficient production, but we .build up a healthy balanced life for those en gaged in industry. In place of the over-grown city and I the drained and exploited country, we 1 must have planned development on regional lines. The industrial re sources of natural economic regions require to be developed within the re gion. With the coming of electrical power, there is much less need to co...

NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES SEVERE HEAT AFFECTS FRUIT [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 4 February 1943
NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES SEVERE HEAT AFFECTS FRUIT As I write on Mbnday and loakback at the last 8 days, with the sun beating down with relentless fury, and the merourjf in the ther mometer ranging from -105 to 112 degrees, is it any wonder that vines have suffered? . There still seems to be no sign of a cool change. In 'places where the last irrigation has just ibeen applied prior to the heat wave, there is no sign' of trouble but in Renmark where blocks were waiting for the pre-harvest special, the land dried out and the leaves have been literally scorched, as with fire. Sultanas have developed '"blue* berries which will affect the sample and cur rants in many cases have commenced to shrivel. Pears have been burned brown on the sunny side catching the afternoon sun. To what extent the heat wave will affect the ultimate result of the har vest is hard to say, because X can only judge the effects 011 the blocks in my immediate vicinity, but I con sider that a fair reflection of the...
