Cygnet TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
Cygnet TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS. -A motor car accident, from which the occupants had a narrow escape with their lives, occurred' at about 3 plm last Friday on the road between Cygnet and Oyster. Cove. The motor car, which was a 'hire and drive' car belonging to Mrs Marjorie Robert son, of New Town, was proceeding over the saddle towards Oyster Cove, and when rounding a sharp bend it was met by a motor lorry driven by Mr Ralph W. Howard, of Nicholls Rivulet. Fortunately both vehicles were travelling, on their. proper sides, and an actual, collision was avoided. Owing to the narrowness of the road, however, the motor car got into dif ficulties, and' after passing the lorry a distance of * about 30 yards, it 'toppled over the embankment, and icii a distance oi apout zv ieet, turn ing a complete somersault, and land ing on its wheels.

Sporting Notes CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
Sporting Notes ? « ? CRICKET. Australian cricketers have always had the reputation, well deserved, of being great 'leg-pullers,' says a writer in the Melbourne 'Argus.' Did not-Blackham, away back in 1890, induce the selectors to send to Tasmania for a second1 wicketkeeper, K. E. Burn, who was transhipped in cne Day irom tne xasmanian steamer to the vessel carrying the cricketers to. England? The cream of the joke was that Burn had never kept wickets. The present Australian Test team took its first opportunity when it met at Colombo the English jour nalist who has been stirring up trouble with scare messages to Lon don. He gravely recorded the fact that 'Bradman had' to get the doctor's permission to smoke a cigarette.' Bradman is a non-smoker. The same journalist was the butt of the 'leg- puller' at Nottingham four years ago. On the morning on which the first Test was to begin he had a front page story about 'Australia's mys tery bowler' who had been saved up as the big surprise pa...

Correspondence 10 PER CENT. RESTORATION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
Correspondence 10 PER CENT. RESTORATION. To the Editor. , Sir,— It is remarkable that men of supposed ability should state that the increase ins wages made by the Arbi tration Court in the recent award is a sign of recovery in Australia. With the exception of wool, not one pri mary industry is paying its way, while almost every secondary, industry is -receiving.- support. It should be plain to all that Australia is now only entering the critical period of ?her history, and the increase in wages will make the position of all industry more difficult, with the exception of luxury items, such as picture houses, hotels, etc. Until there is a general realisation that low prices with low costs, enabling everyone to buy, there can be Ho prosperity .—Yours, etc., PESSIMIST.

ENTERPRISE OF A YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
ENTERPRISE OF A YOUTH. Much interest has been aroused among the residents of New Norfolk by the construction of a wooden aerial tower by Mr E. L. Wigston, of Blair Street, New Norfolk. The tower is 67 feet high, and contains 1040 running feet of hardwood, and despite the contrary opinion of many persons who had! viewed the tower while under construction on the ground, the builder succeeded in erecting it on the foundation during the holidays. An aerial consisting of four strands of 3/20 bare copper wire, spaced with ebonite rings, and slung between the tower and a 70ft. pole, provides about the best radio reception in the district, and is being used with the latest type receivers. Mr Wigston said that he, considered the improved reception made possible by the new aerial was ample re payment for the work and expense in curred by this undertaking. ''?' « ii ? '??? ?' . ? _ ? iiv\
