A DAY IN AN AUSTRALIAN CANNERY. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Witness — 6 December 1923

A DAY IN AN AUSTRALIAN CANNERY. In Hie morning one sees the fruit rosy and yellow amid the deep green of .the orchard leaves. Down between the rows of the orchard trees- come the pickers, each, with a leather or -sacking pocket, apron to contain the fruit picked, so that it is not damaged by being flung carelessly into canes or by being left in heaps upon .tile ground. Once picked and placed carefully in the casus the fruit is loaded upon waggons and conveyed to the cannery, which is situaldd in the centre of the fruit-growing district, seldom more llian a mile or two from the orchards. Still bearing the orchard bloom, the fruit arrives at the cannery, where neatly uniformed girls, by means of special tools, soon deftly remove the pits and cut the fruit into halves. These halves, piled in sterilised wicker haskets, lire then conveyed to the first of a long series of machines, in which the fruit is thoroughly washed, scalded and peeled. Then a machine, known as "The Grader," under hi...

WHY OUR LINE IS RUN AT A LOSS. A correspondent, writing in tho Cowra "Guardian" finds the cause of the annual loss ascribed to the Hard en-'Bluyney line: "The line is debited with the cost of every train that runs over it. Ad mit, for argument's sake, that the line is credited with its lair proper* tion of all traffic, as Mr. Fnr/.er states, liut has it ever struck the public that the Hue has too many trains dm'!}? I mean too nuiny trains for the towns »n<l country in the lm mediate vicinity of the line. Take the midnight trains through Cowra. Kjranted they are a convenience 10 .the Ktations ou the liue hy making almost' direct connections; with tite night mail traius trom Sydney at Harden and JJlaynev, yet the after noon train .south from Cowrti and tite evening train west from Cowra could .serve almost as wcdl, so far as the limited night traffic immediate* Iy, on the Ulayney Harden Jino is concerned.

r\. ; University and the j Country. j YOUNG HAS A CLAIM. If country unjver.sitfes are to be established. as seems likely, tin* town of Young sh(iuJ<i he included for more realms than one. Recently, the Young Council was asked for ( support fr«»m Buthurst in a move- j ment to have a university establish- [ ed iu that town, and the aldermen, i without much consideration of the wiuest. good naturedly agreed. But Bathurst ha.s no better flaims to a university than Young. Bat hurst is not very far from Sydney and therefore within reasonable distance of the Sydney University. Young is twice the distance from Sydney, has a glorious climate, is easily ac cessible. and a university here would serve all the thriving towns of the great south-west. With regard to the provision of a suitable building, very little expenditure should be necessary. Hither the imposing Court House or the unused Gaol, both of which were described at i Tuesday's public meeting, as ."white elephants," would ...
