There was still, said Mr. Germein, a sure job for anyone who could come to these districts. There would still "be more Militiamen coming, but it was ■difficult to say just how many. As new men were taken in at Wayville t...

Pulping the Home Fruit [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 February 1943
, VI Pulping the Home Fruit Country women who usually bottle their home garden fruit crop can still preserve it despite sugar rationing. Pulped fruit will keep well it care is taken to sterilize all containers and to seal the contents while at boil ing- point. Purees of fruit may also be made. These need some sugar, but most fruit is palatable with the addition of a quarter of a pound of sugar to one pound of fruit. Preserved in this way, fruit can be used later for pies or desserts, with good results. Sugar, if necessary, can be added when the fruit is finally used. WHAT ARE YOU doing to help win the War?

U.M. CRAPE GROWERS ASSOCIATION Increase in Price of Vine Grapes An Appreciation [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 February 1943
UJH CRAPE GROWERS ASSOCIATION increase in Price of Vine Grapes An Appreciation Bv "Murray Grace (Srower" Appreciation of the efforts of the Wine Grape Growers Association in gaining an increase of £1 per" ton for wine grapes for the 1943 season, com pels me as a JRiver settler to ask you to print the following comments on the worth while efforts of this asso ciation. In the city press and over various radio stations on January 29, very brief reference was made to Senator Keane's announcement that he had decided to increase the price of wine grapes for the 1943 seasoh by £1 per ton. This announcement means a great deal to River wine grape growers, but could anyone reading the bare announcement in the press, or listening to the radio references, visualize the amount of time and work, and the many disappoint ments borne by the members of the committees before this price increase rewarded their efforts. The Upper Murray Grape Growers Association has been in existence only six years, and...

NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES Early Picking = Soundest Policy [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 February 1943
NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES Early Picking = Soundest Policy Mr, A. V. Lyon,^ M.Sc., Officer in charge of the Merbein Research Station, recently visited our areas to investigate the progress of the grape maturation. These maturation studies have proved of very great interest in past years and are looked forward to by grow ers. We received « letter frem Mr. N. Fotheringham (chair man of the Local irrigation and Drainage Investigation Committee) dated January 29 and giving the outline of Mr ' Lyon s investiga tions, the first of which is that "Beaume readings for sultanas this year are a little more than one degree higher than those for a cor responding period last, year.. The average Beaume rise is usually a Mile under one degree « week. This does not mean however that the sultanas this year are over a week ahead of last year. Al though the indications are for an early maturity the acidity is etill high and it looks like a year of high maturity level a moderate crop developed in weathe...

Efforts to Have Morgan Hospital Re-opened DEPUTATION APPOINTED TO WAIT ON CHIEF SECRETARY IN ADELAIDE After having served the district for over 20 years the Morgan Public Hospital has been closed. Residents of the district hope that this will be only a temporary measure, and Mr. Sidney McHugh (Member for the District) has been - written to,, asking that he should arrange for a deputation to be received by the Chief Sec retary (the Hon. A. L. McEwen) to discuss the matter of re opening the institution. Commenting on ' the situation this' week the chairman of the Hospital Committee (Mr. L. S.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Sunday Bus Service To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 February 1943
(LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Sunday Bus Service To the Editor. Sir,—It is pleasing to note that the Waikerie District Council is taking ac tion in an endeavour to have Pendle's [Sunday passenger service to Adelaide restored, as there is a growing feeling of discontent with the present state of affairs. When this service was cancelled on the reported grounds of | a' shortage of tyres, the public was disappointed, but accepted the position philosophically, as part t>f the naiiona! war effort. However within a fort-! night, an interstate, bus on the same route was given an extra week day run (making 4 week days), and the j tourist pleasure bus is on the road' again and running regular weekly trips,' so where a saving in tyres, fuel or manpower has been" effected it is diffi cult to assess. It is felt here that these things show an almost calculated contempt for, and utter disregard of the River pub lic's needs and opinions, and jt ip 'ervently, hoped that the action by I the District Coun...

Communist Party and Fruit Harvest To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 February 1943
Communist Party and Fruit Harvest To the Editor Sir,—Some time ago the Renmark Branch of the Communist Party made a request to the State committee in Adelaide to send up as many members as possible to help with the harvest. A reply was received informing uf that it was impossible for members to come up as they are all engaged In vital industries. But a decision ■was arrived at to send one of the party's functionaries to help with the harvest. In a letter from Adelaide Miss C. Capper, wrote that she was pleased to be given the task of helping in the harvest, and that she would work very hard to set a "Bolshevik" example. It has also been decided by the Ren mark .Branch to set up "shock bri gades" composed of volunteer members for the purposq of helping out needy blockers. This work is to be per formed on Sundays and it is hoped that sufficient brigades will be formed 'to be of real help in alleviating the 'labour shortage to .some extent. We nrf sir.
