CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 March 1929
CORRESPONDENCE. Mr. F. C Switzer, of Canlcy Road, Fairfield, writes: "Sir,-The evolution and expan sion of "The Biz" to an up-to-date, bonc-flde newspaper, marks an epoch in the history and advancement of those districts in which it circulates. It is what many older paper are not; viz., a "newspaper." Many metro politan papers possess only a limited news value, much space over and above that required for advertising, being taken up with the papers' opin ions as to how the country should be governed and with comment upon variouB industrial situations and dis putes. Nevertheless I think "The Biz" should have a political policy, subservient to neither the exploded theory of composite Nationalist and Country partu nor yet a pitiably debauched and spuriously-named Lab our party. Seeing that, outside Parramatta, only ^airfield publishes an up-to date paper, "Biz" should soon be a big thing."

WILLIE'S DISAPPEARANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 March 1929
WILLIE'S DISAPPEARANCE. Willie-his name may be Dick, Torn, or Harry-but "Little Willie" seems to suit him. A tiny tot, aged 3 years, he was a familiar figure in the setreets of Guildford, especially in the vicinity of the railway station. Never a train passed through, but people throught of Willie-was he on the tracks, and in danger of being run down ? And on many occas ions they found him there, playing delightedly about the network of rails and sleepers. Some have lost count of the number of times they carried him to safety. They had great sympathy for the little chap -just three years old-who seem ed to be running wild; -whose home appeared to be in the streets. Willie had the time of his life during the recent heavy rains, when the waters flooded the gutters. Flat on his stomach he would splansh about in the water in imitation of Arne Borg. Many a lady passing by pulled him from the stream and set him on his feet again; only to see him return immediately to the water, which, fro...

AN OLD LANDMARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 March 1929
AN OLD LANDMARK. I An old landmark has disappeared from Fairfield with the demolition of Quarterman's cottage, which' stood opposite the Protestant Hall. Thirty years ago this cottage was occupied by the late George Pearce, who many of the older hands will still remember. The old gentleman was one of the early pioneers of these parts. In his time there were no street lights, and the streets there about was scarcely negotiable, with large drains here and there. Mr. Pearce proved a good Samari tan. Each night he would hang a hurricane lantern outside, for the convenience of passers-by. The people showed their gratitude by throwing pennies over the fence to help pay for the oil that was burnt. The old cottage has gone, and a new one now stands further back on the allotment.
