THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
THE PRINCE. A new personality flaShes across the screen horizon in 'Man of /Two Worlds,' which commences at the Prince of Wales Theatre this Satur day. Francis Lederer brings to it an internatio.wal reputation, and adds fresh lustre with his performance in 'Man of Two Worlds.' Elissa Landi, co-starred with Lederer in the pro duction,. gives a sparkling portrayal which is parallel to that of Lederer, although her role is briefer. 'Man of Two Worlds' is the story of a mighty Arctic hunter, who is taken from Greenland to London by scien tists for whom he has acted as guide.

The Hungarian actress, Steffi Duna, creates the native wife with rare sympathy and under standing. There is a strong support ing cast. , A powerfully...

HIS MAJESTY'S. An enchanting story, simply but graphically -told of a great singer's adoration for a woman who loved him only for' his wealth and position, forms the main theme of 'The Right To Happiness,' which gives film goers a chance to see and hear Rich ard Tauber, the famous tenor, at His.

Up church iexpressed great disappoint ment at the unreasonable delay that had occurred in the distribution of the grant madie by the Federal Gov ernment to assist those fruitgrowers who had suffered loss through the breakdown of the overseas apple apple market last season.

McPhee) impressed on the Prime Minister the urgency of apple growers being given financial assist ance to tide them over the disas trous experiences they had had' in connection with their , 1933 overseas shipments. It was truthfully, pointed out that some of the growers were in such, straits that they were' likely to lose their properties, arid would have done so but for ' the fact that- no buyers were forthcoming to take them over. Mr McPhee was to be commended for. . having acted so promptl...

Correspondence BLACKBERRY PEST AND CONTROL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
Correspondence BLACKBERRY PEST AND CON TROL. To the Editor.' a ;iSir, — Some time ago a writer to your paper advocated some means of control of the blackberry. It was pointed out that the blackberry was rapidly increasing, and that it was a competitor of small fruits. It is per mitted to encroach on the roads, and to spread in the vicinity of schools, thus harboring snakes and other ver min and pests. One has only to look back a few years and recall many country properties that were once . flourishing small fruit f&rms, but are now blackberry wastes. Whilst the fruit processors or pulp exporters can treat the blackberries and get them at a cheap rate on con ditions and in quantities to suit their own ends, it is unlikely that a better price will be available for the culti vated small fruits which would not :'ii return the same margin of profit to the processors. It, might be argued that many per sons and families are enabled to earn, or- to. part earn a livelihood for the :....
EARLY CULTIVATION METHODS [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
EARLY CULTIVATION METHODS , Recently we. have published some references to very early methods of cultivating fruit trees, some of them dating back to over 1000 years ago and which showed that many of our supposed modernl ideas were put in practice hundreds of years ago. Mr. C. L. Ivey, of Cygnet, has just sent us a transcription of one of the writ ings of Theophrastus, who was born about 370 B.C., and who gave the following advice to land cultivators: . 'Choose the lower slopes of hills . for fruit trees. 'Those requirements of cultiva tion! which apply equally to all fruit trees are spade work (and hoeing) watering -and- manuring and more over pruning and removal of dead wood. Manure does not suit all alike, nlor is the same manure equally ' good for all. Beans seem to manure the land, wherefore people turn over. , the ground when they are in flower.'
