WATER FOR ^EST COAST POOCHERA SETTLERS ANNOYED STATEMENTS DEFENDED Replying to the statement of Hon. AI. Mclntosh (Commisioner of Public Works) published in these columns last week Mr. W. A. Gosling (presi dent of the Poochera Progress Asso ciation) states that nearly every Min ister of the Crown hides behingd the statement that facts are misleading and inaccurate. 'To say that my statement that there is no pressure in the pipes is untrue is just twisting put of a cor ner,' he writes. 'The water may oe cut off at Minnipa, but the fact re mains that one member of the Poo chera Progress Committee has water from the main only 50 yards distant, and it takes his three-quarter inch pipe two hours to fill a 400-gallon tank. 'In all the Wds-fc done by the Hy draulic Engineer's Department no blun der has been so bad as the Mhiuipa lank* Half is on stone and half is on a sandhill.

[?] RESULTS W VICTORIA Mr, H. A. Mullett (Superintendent of Agriculture in Victoria) stated in a recent address that the outstand ing success of the efforts of the de partment had ; been in the Wininiera district, where 700,000 acres was sown annually to wheat. 'In 25 years the average yield an acre had been raised from 7.6 to\22.1 bushels. The scientific factors which, when put into practice, had been re sponsible for this improvement were toe conservation of soil moisture by scientifically constructed bare fallow, the use o£ improved varieties, later sowing of the crop, heavier applica tin of superphosphate, -eavier dres sings of seed, and better disease pre vention methods. Progress had also been made in the top-dressing of pasture lands.

WIRING ON USED CARS POINTS REQUIRING ATTENTION [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 11 November 1927

WIRING ON USED CARS POINTS REQUIRING ATTENTION Anyone who examines closely many of the second and third-hand cars that come on the market will generally not ice that the wiring is very illconsid ered and badly executed job ; in fact, so bad is much of the wiring that one would expect trouble right away. . If the wiring does happen to be effective, It is more by a lucky chance than any thing else, and it will always be a pot ential source of trouble. Wiring that has got into a bad state will gen erally, be found to have suffered from wet, oil, heat, mud, and dust, which elements have an uncanny way of find ing weak spots in the wiring. Friction or chafing is generally always going on where there are any loose wires and the installation has become fray ed and soft thbrough soaking up the oil. There may be doubtful or cor roded joints where broken wires have been repaired or extra circuits taped off. The best advice is to scrap all .old wiring rather than attempt to re store it with so...

TOD RIVER SCHEME A NOTE OF WARNING In a report on the finances of the State Messrs. W. J. Young, H. G. Dar ling and J. W. Wain wright stated : — ' Although we have not been able to complete our investiga tions into the finances of the waterworks -.* appears that a note of warning is necessary as re gards the Tod River scheme. Inde-' pedent of the poor outlook on the earning side, an immediate enquiry should, in our opinion, be made as to whether a sufficient supply of water will be available to serve the area contemplated.

MARKETING WHEAT COMPULSORY POOL IN CANADA. Wheat pools in Western Canada have flourished for about four years, and they have a great body of public goodwill behind them. They have been and are purely voluntry. It is now proposed, however, that after two:lhirds or three-quarters of the farmers in a province have voluot arily joined the pool, those who re main out should be compelled to mar ket their crop through the pool. The suggestion come from Mr Aaron Sa- ; piro, who was responsible for the ; creation of the three Western Cana dian pools. ! Mr. Sapiro denies thai he has suggested compulsary marketing. ' 'What I suggested was that if i wo- , thirds or three-quarters o£ Uie farmers signed the co-operative a^ieeuient the ' wheat of all the farmers shoiiM 1-n -Je- 1 livered to the pool, ' he says. ' This would not mean-that the non-pooling farmers would be members _ of the organisation. It would simply mean that the organisation would serve them in «pite of themselves.' This is merel...

WELCOME SOCIAL NEED FOR FUNDS [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 11 November 1927

WELCOME SOCIAL NEED FOR FUNDS The- Bishop was tendered a social in the Parish Hall on Monday even ing. The Rev. H. L. Snow presided over a large attendance. Mr. Snow said he was pleased to welcome the Bishop on behalf of tut parishioners. The visit might be re garded as evidence his desire to link the people of that parish with the diocesan movement. Therefore, he was '};-.. uDt present merely as a friend, but as an officer of the church, who, in the jproper execution of the duties per .;:- taining to his high office, required : their support and co-operation.. : . The Epeaker was alive to the diffi culties which would face his successor in this parish. It meant a great deal of hard work when a new man came along and found the exchequer '-empty. One of the objects of the Uishop's visit was to awaken interest M the work of the parish, and the diocese as a whole. The Mayor (Mr. A. Leech) welcomed the Bishop on behalf of the towns people.

AN ACADEMY OF SMOKERS [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 11 November 1927

-?????? ??-'-* * ??. '?'????- yr -???'???; -'?? r~-.' /;;:V ''-'? AN ACADEMY OF SMOKERS It is proposed in France to' establish an Academy of Smokers. Public op ion seems to favor the scheme, for the French have always been fond of academies and of making fun of them. : The proposer argues that all sorts and conditions of people now have academies of their own — not only writers and painters, but dancers, sportsmen, and humorists ; so clearly smokers, who are more numerous thau any of these professions, should have one of their own. As a piece of logic this argument may have flaws, but we find it persuasive (says the London 'Daily Telegraph') . The purpose of an academy we un derstand to be the encouragement and improvement of the art or occupation with which it is concerned and the maintenance of a high standard there in.- The Academy of Humorists, no doubt — though the idea of such a body seems like a contradiction in terms — labors to spread a sense of humour to improve the qualit...
