NEW KNOWLEDGE OR GOLD? [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 5 April 1934
NEW KNOWLEDGE OR GOLD? Most people admit that it is good for the motor car to become better and its tyres to be cheaper and have a longer life.- It is also well for electrical sup- ' plies to become more general, more efficient, and less costly. It is even good for simple things like our pocket knives to be improved by research and become -better and cheaner. But - there are' still many who believe that .in the mundane things of life such as coal, cast iron,, bricks, and blankets, finality has bee'n reached, or nearly so. However, a survey of what has been done and of the knowledge avail able and not used makes it practically certain that there is no product of any kirid which cannot be improved in quality and produced more cheaply by properly conducted research. There is no limit to knowledge, and there* is no limit to technical progress. , If a country had to choose between newxknowledge and gold with which to fill its vaults, the wise . choice would undoubtedly new knowledge, for...

Huon Municipality A SATISFACTORY POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
Huon Municipality i A SATISFACTORY POSITION. During the year the Huon district has gone through a period of acute depression, probably the worst on re cord,, due chiefly to the collapse of the overseas market, with the result ing low prices for apples, which was also aggravated by the low prices re ceived, on the interstate market. Not withstanding these setbacks, however, we nave made two important pro gressive moves — the establishment of a town water supply for Franklin, and a new Town Hall for the district of Glen Huon. The former ? ? has proved a great boon to the residents of Franklin, and was installed at a time which was most opportune, as the summer jnst ended proved to be the driest, on record. -The' Glen Huon Hall is a commodious and up to-date structure, arid more in keep ing with this important part of our municipality, than was the old one, and the residents are to be congratu lated upon their courage and enter prise. .- ' The recent hush fire caused con siderable loss...

Inter-School Sports NEW TOWN VISIT FRANKLIN. Last Saturday about 50 children of the- New Town State School, in charge of the head master, Mr V. R. Long. and- three other members of the teaching staff, paid a visit to Franklin and engaged in friendly athletic contests. The events were under the direction of Mr A. B. Gaul, head master of the Franklin school and the visiting teachers, an'd they provided a most interesting pro gramme. Both schools had individual per formers of exceptional merit, the boys of the New Town school being generally .a little better than those of Franklin, while the Franklin . girls showed to better advantage than their visitors. A pleasing feature of the gather ing was the splendid sporting spirit displayed by all the children and the friendships formed were cemenlted by the generous hospitality of lady mem bers of the Franklin Parents' and Friends' Association, who enter tained all the visitors and local children to luncheon and afternoon tea, while ample su...

The popularity of these sports has been one of the most remarkable incidents in the HUon in recent years, and can fairly be attributed to the splendid management on the part of the re turned men, and the whole-hearted co-operation of the teachers of the various schools. The public can look forward with confidence to the meet ing on.

COMMUNITY SINGING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
COMMUNITY SINGING. Mr A. B. Gaul, headmaster of the' Franklin State School, is desirous of starting a weekly community singing class, and will hold the first meeting at St. John's school hall to-morrow (Friday) evening.

Municipal Elections NOMINATIONS CLOSED TO-DAY. Nominations for the seats ren dered1 vacant through effluxion of time in the various municipal coun cils of the district closed' to-day. In both the Huon and Cygnet muni cipalities considerable interest has been displayed for some time past in the prospect of an infusion of ..new blood in the councils. ' * ' At the meeting of the Huon Coun cil on Monday genuine regret was' expressed by every member of the council and the. officers, at the an nouncement by Cr. D. E.

HYDRO-ELECTRIC SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
HYDRO-ELECTRIC SERVICE. At last Monday's -meeting of the Huon Municipal Council, Cr. C. White said attention should be drawn to the breakdowns that had been oc curring at Franklin lately, and the difficulty of getting in touch with the repairing staff. He thought a more satisfactory service would- be as sured if the Commission stationed, a qualified' repairer at each of the towns like Franklin, Geeveston, and Cygnet, instead of concentrating them all at Huonville., Cr. Ryan said he had been discussing the mat ter ?with the superintendent of the i line, and that officer pointed out thati while the Commission were glad of | any suggestions that might lead to | the improvement of the service, theyi were of the opinion that it was bet ter to have a staff of employees at one centre, as breakdowns usually required two or more men to repair them.- In any case the control of the Huon district was under review at the present time, and until ad justments were made in connection with the takin...
Motor Notes BEDFORD TRUCKS [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
Motor Notes BEDFORD TRUCKS The Bedford' 30 cwt. chassis is- the | popular choice in most parts of the worldi for general utility transporta tion since it can carry a load of from 30 cwt. to 35 cwt. allowing a genei ous margin for body and cab weights. The useful peculiarity of this type of [chassis is that, while it can accom modate a big load in emergencies, it can go light economically. In strength and stamina the 30 cwt, is a typical Bedford. The heavy frame has „side members 3/16 of an inch thick, braced by five stout cross members. ' The heavy duty four forward speed gear box has an extra low bottom gear which gives double the pulling power . for rough going. Altogether it is a reliable and econ omical chassis that will give satis factory service on almost any kind' of work. 2-TON TYPE The two ton chassis has a full floating rear axle which, translated ir.ito .the user's ? terms, means that there is a tremendous margin - of strength for the most trying condi tions. This type of...
