BIOGRAPH AND THE PRESS. Movies to Train Reporters. The Columbia School of Journal ism has introduced a new method of training their embryo journalists. Mo tion pictures will be shown to the stu dents In the future, and they will be required to write them up as if they had actually seen the events in real life represented on the screen.

WHERE NOBODY DIES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 6 June 1914
WHERE NOBODY DIES. People with money and peop'e without (that iB when they can) has-1 ten off to health resorts to prevent themselves being, earlier than they de sire, placed under mother earth. Bret Harte remarked in one of hia stories that he would like to find a place where no one ever died. According to the Gembrook Cemetery trustees, the Gembrook district is just the place the American novelist was look ing for. The trustees have resign ed in a body because there is no busi ness doing In the burying line, and consequently, no revenue. In tho past 40 years there were only two In terments, and they were pauper casea who had strayed into the district, not residents. The trustees have accord ingly come to the conclusion that the district doesn't require a cemetery, that the local "planting ground" 13 wasted, and that nobody in the dis trict la ever going to die and give them a job. As a health resort recommen dation this will take some heating.
