TEA PLANTS GROW. BRIGHT PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
TEA PLANTS GROW. BRIGHT PROSPECTS. Tea plants which were planted in April from seed brought from India are growing well in boxes in a hot house at the Botanic Gardens. They arc now about six inches high. This is satisfactory progress, the curator (Mr. E. W. Bick) said yesterday, because the tea plants were slow growers at any time. Later these plants will be sent out by the Department of Agriculture to various parts of Queensland to ascer- tain the prospects for growing tea on a commercial basis. These plants are varieties of Assam tea. At Beechmont, on the Tamborine. Range, good samples already have been grown. On the whole the prospects for the successful growth of tea plants in suitable arcas appear to be distinctly encouraging.

HONOUR CAPS. SECONDARY SCHOOLS. UNIVERSITY DEFEATED. Better constructed bock-line movements, in which speed and sound positioning played a prominent part, gave combined Secondary Schools a 24 to 18 victory against a University Rugby union fifteen yesterday. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
HONOUR CAPS. SECONDARY SCHOOLS. UNIVERSITY DEFEATED. Better constructed back-line move- ments, m much speed and sound positioning played a prominent part, gavo combined Secondary Schools a 24 to l8 victory against a University Rugby union fifteen yesterday. The match was pjayed at the Exhibi- tion No. 1 oval, this annual fixture provid- ing the champions of future years with the opportunity of securing their seasonal Rugby honour caps. Unfortunately, the University representatives were made up of B and O graders, and, as a test of strength they did not mcasuro up to the required standard, and a stronger opposition would have constrained the boys from the Secondary Schools to un- fold a type of football moro in keeping with their capabilities. At no time did the University fifteen look Uko winning, and the comparatively small margin in the scores does not accurately Indicate the relative merits of the contenders. SCORING MOVEMENTS. Secondary Schools opened their score with a fine try...
RUGBY LEAGUE. JENSEN CUP FIXTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
RUGBY LEAGUE. JENSEN CUP FIXTUEES. At the Brisbane Cricket Ground on Saturday, the two principal games will be provided by Easts v. Wests and Norths v. Brothers. Easts and Brothers are level In tlie points table for the Vic. Jensen Cup. and each is keen to annex this trophy in the first year of) Its existence. The Norths v. Brothers" match should be one of the best games of the season, as the former team Is In top form, and In recent games has been displaying wonderful football. Bob Wil- liams, their coach, has stated that he has loft no stone unturned to win this match, and with the extra training that has been put in he expects to see an ex- ceptionally fast game. An attractive set of fixtures also has been arranged for Davies Park, where Waratahs will meet Rosemount« In a Junior flnoi; Easts (Wyn. division) will meet Valley in a third grado match at 1.45, and at 3.15, Varsity first grade will meet Valley.
HEY AGAIN FIT. LEAGUE TOURISTS. CLIFF. PEARCE ILL. ILKLEY, August 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
HEY AGAIN FIT. LEAGUE TOURISTS. CLIFF. PEARCE ILL. (Fiom Claude Corbett ) ILKLEY. August 29. Hey, who had two teeth extracted yester- day, will replace Thlcknesse In the match against Leigh to-morrow, playing five eighth. There Is a likelihood of Cliff Pearco not playing owing to a slight attack of Influenza. He has been lu bed most of to-day, but this afternoon was feeling much better. In case he Is not well enough either Why or Brown will lill tho centre three-quarter position. The whole team was showing vastly im- proved speed and handllug In training on Monday and Tuesday, thus giving evi- dence that they are rapidly becoming acclimatised. I am still further of the opinion that this team will take a power of beating as tho tour goes on. Leigh was narrowly defeated In its open- ing competition match on Saturday by Barrow, but the team possesses slogging forwards. It was pleasing to-day to see Gilbert down at the training ground watching the operations, this being the only occa- s...
LEAGUE CRISIS. Breakaway In N.S.W. POACHING KANGAROOS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
LEAGUE CRISIS. Breakaway In N.S.W. POACHING KANGAROOS. (By L. H. KEARNEY.) Tha country Rugby Leagues of New South Wales aro up In arms against the control of football by the eight Sydney clubs, and the decision arrived at at the recent conference In Sydney to form new organisation, comprising the various country groups and Newcastle, may have a far-reaching influence on tho game. Mr. F.' J. Cahill, tho honorary secretary of ono of the biggest country Leagues Group 9-has prophesied that when the New South Wales and Queensland mem- bers ot the Kangaroos return from Eng- land 90 per cent, of them would be ap- proached by New South Wales country leaguei to accept positions as player coaches. It Is to bo deplored that the New South Wales Rugby League control has been centred In Sydney, A similar state of affairs could not arise In Queensland, for the simple reason that affiliated coun- try leagues aro given a full voice In the management of the game, and such centres as Ipswich and Toowo...
CONTROL DISEASE. SEED AND PLANT. TOBACCO LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
CONTROL DISEASE. SEED AND PLANT. TOBACCO LEGISLATION. "Under the legislation dealing with the tobacco industry, which will be introduced shortly, it is proposed ade- quately to control the movement of seed and plant. This means, in other words, control of the movement of diseuse *' This indication of the Government's intentions was given yesterday by the Minister for Agriculture (Mr. P. Bul- cock), when discussing the report from Townsville, that tobacco ivas the prey of pests, although it contained poison. Mr. Bulcock said that tobacco as a crop had probably presented more dif- ficulties than any other crop KI Queensland. Pests of all descriptions had ravaged the tobacco areas. One of the major difficulties had been the lack of knowledge of control. Tobacco growers had to leam their task as they went along, and the pathologists had to recognise diseases as they developed. The consequence was that diseases of a grave character were now wide spread, the principal being frog's eye, le...
