MOTORS AND MOTORING STICKING PLATE CLUTCH [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 17 April 1928

STICKING - PLATE CLUTCH A defect frequently encountered with plate clutches is failure to dis engage fully, particularly when cold. Consequently there is considerable difficulty in engaging first gear. A simple tip is to depress the clutch fully, move the gear lever until the reverse gear teeth can just be felt touching, and then move the lever back rapidly into first gear position. First gear then engages silently in tlio majority of cases.

"PERHAPS IT'S A LOOSE DOOR." [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 17 April 1928

"PERHAPS IT'S A LOOSE DOOR." Much of the creaking and rattling which is a source of annoyance to. motorists could be' eliminated by giv ing a! few moment's attention to the doors of the; car. « The: conventional, body has at least two rubber bumpers for each door, these being designed to kedp the doors tight. But in time tliesp bumpers become'flattened down or worn. By wedging in a little pack ing;in the form of a strip of wood; or a piece of tin, however, these bumpers can.'be restored to their full efficiency —and, the door rattles will. vanish. While;this,is being donej a.few drops ot-bil on the door locks will-frequent ly.-cause any baffling squeak -to dis appear. Rattles, or even knocks, are often traceable to tools or other loose '£fittcles in -door pockets.- If things Stost be carried in th&. door sockets-, ■be sure to pick them tight

AIR LOCKS IN THE PETROL TANK [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 17 April 1928

MEASURES RECOMMENDED [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 20 April 1928

MEASURES RECOMMENDED 'Dusting- or: pickling the grain, as already stated, has absolutely no ef j feet on this disease. ,The,.amount of disease which will develop iu-the crop depends entirely on the anicuuc of in fection which haV oeen estahltSlieJ m the grain.in the previous se.ason. The most practical meUiod ot' control of this disease is to use as seed . only grain that; as a result of an examina tion of the growing crop at the proper time, is known to be free from this disease. This examination can only be made satisfactorily in the early flowering stages of the crop. In some countries where this disease is very prevalent seed for use in spe cial seed plots is treated with hot water prior to sowing. .The treatment aims, at destroyng the internally-borne fungus threads of loose smut without injuring the'grain'. The margin of safety, howeyer, is very slight, and, in practice; ;the germination of the treated grain^ is seriously affected. The Jenseh (modified) hot water treatment req...

LOOSE SMUT OF WHEAT Characteristics and Control [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 20 April 1928

LOOSE SMUT OF WHEAT Characteristics and Control .. Loose smut of wheat is caused by a parasitic fungus (Ustilago tritici), and is quite distinct from other smut dis eases which occur on wheat unci other cereals and' grasses. The condition shows up conspicuously' in the early heading stages of. the crop, but bcr ! comes less noticeable as the crop ma [ tures. - Infected heads are readily distin guished by the black ■ sooty powder which . • lias replaced the grain and chaff. This. powder .-.-is-■ composed > of the' spores of- the '.fungus,: which are readily scattered by the wind, so. that eventually only the ■ central; axis "of the head is left; The stalks of in fected plants are sometimes slightly stunted, although this' is not*always the case. Sometimes, nlso, only some stalks of one plant are- affected, while the remainder are healthy. Occasion ally only the lower ."portion of the head is completely destroyed .by the fungus. The looseness of the spores, however,' will always re...

PICKLING OR DUSTING USELESS [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 20 April 1928

PICKLING OR DUSTING USELESS Tlie features of the life history. of the fungus are quite distinctive, and serve to explain why ordinary pickl ing or dusting lias 110 effect what soever in the control of this disease. It has been stated that the spores o£ the loose smut fungus are readily dispersed by the. wind. These spores may become lodged on the llowering parts of ■ adjacent healthy wheat heads. If they fall, on to the stigma of the wheat ilower while it is still in a receptive condition, they will germinate and produce fungus threads which grow down into the developing grain. The germination of the fungus spore thus closely resembles the ger mination of the pollen grain on the stigma of the wheiat. flower. When the fungus is established in the young wheat grain it passes into a resting condition in the germ of the . grain, .which latter finishes its development in the usual way. These infected grains, however, although quite nor mal : in appearance, will produce dis eased plants w...
