SUGAR BEET INDUSTRY. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 July 1915

SUGAR BEET INDUSTRY. THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) Sir,-In my opinion the two principal factors that should go towards making a permanent success in the Powlett district are the sale of coal to the pub lic and the local cultivation of sugar beet. It is pleasing to notice that practical steps are being taken to arrive at these two laudable objectives. To me as a land worker the develop ment of the sugar beet industry ap peals strongly. No doubt many have noticed that the Maffra sugar beet fac tory consumes over 2000 tons of coal from the State Mine yearly. Should it not be patent to everybody that greater results could be achieved from the erection of a local sugar beet factory in the Powlett district, 3ay at Dalyston ? The coal would be handy to the factory. The establishment of such a factory would prove of inestimable benefit to the farmer, the coal miner and the district in general. I trust the activity that is being displayed to have Won? thaggi coal sold to the public and a suga...

Soldiers' Letters Mr Reg. Whitefield has received a letter written home by his brother, Private Whitefield, well-known locally as "Pick,'' who has been wounded. " Pick " remarks : --- I am sorry to say that I have stopped one in the leg, just a few inches below the knee, I'm lucky I'm alive, but it won't be long before I'm back into it again with the boys. You can tell Connie Mac. that its easier to dodge the men playing football than it is to dodge shrapnel and bullets. All the other boys are well. Don't worry as the wound is not a bad one. You would have laughed to see me jump and yell when I stopped it. A week later another letter was written in which Private Whitefield states : --- I am quite well again and leaving the hospital, Cairo, on Tuesday, June 14. I suppose by the time you get' this I will be in the trench dodging shrapnel and bullets. You don't know what it is like, the guns roaring all   day and night, its worse than hell.
