U.K. Apple Imports PROPOSAL TO FIX QUOTAS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
U.K. Apple Imports PROPOSAL TO FIX QUOTAS. Commenting on the statement of Mr S. M. Bruce on the marketing of Australian primary products in U.K., and referring, in particular, to Aus tralian apple exports, Mr H. G. Colombie stated that some time ago a scneme naa been tormulated in .Brit ain' that might eventually result in the British Government imposing a quota scheme, based on seasonal periods. The main idea is to afford some protection to British' fruit growers, and although no definite steps have yet been taken, the indica tions are that the yearly supplies might be divided more or less -as fol lows: — January, February, March and April would be allocated to Ameri can apples; Australia being given May, June artd July; and Canada, October, November and December; thus leaving August and September free to British growers. If adopted, the scheme would be subject to crop prospects and out-turns in Britain and the Dominions, and it is said that the excessive supplies from Australia, N...
FRANKLIN RECREATION GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
FRANKLIN RECREATION v GROUND. At a meeting of the_ committee ? of the Franklin 'recreation ground on Tuesday -evening,, it was decided to purchasea supply of hawthorn plants to grow along the main road bound ary of the ground, to replace in time the present palmg tence. The fence has not many more years of life, and the cost of renewing it would be con siderable. Mr K. V. Christensen suggested that if a close hedgre were planted it would1- cost considerably less than a new paling fence,, and pi'e ance. The cost of upkeep, too, would be less for the renewal of palings. Members of the committee will do the work of planting. A supply of seeds of some rare ornamental trees have been forwarded by the Secre tary for Agriculture, Mr L. A. ?Evans, to Mr W. R: Yeates, secretary of the Franklin recreation ground, for experimental planting in the recreation ground, the soldiers' me morial reserve, and the ' bowling green gardens. Mr A.; S.

FRUIT SPACE CANCELLED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
FRUIT SPACE CANCELLED. A Victorian newspaper states: — An ? inter estir4g position has arisen in the fiuit export trade through the in ability of exporters to fill shipping space reserved for apples following -losses from ? windfalls and heat dam age.' Ship owners sent letters to ex porters last week, threatening- to hold them liable for the cancelled space if they were not able to fill it with other products. Exporters said they would have to cancel space for about 250,000 cases of apples, but would hot be held liable by shippers1 because their inability to stick. to their con tracts had been caused' by an act of, God. The Department of Agricul ture, they said, had been, nominated as arbitrator and it could prove that exporters had to cancel space through am act of God. They would not be bluffed; by the ship owners.

v LACHLAN DISASTROUS FIRE. Quite a gloom has been cast over Lachlan by the disastrous fire on Saturday night, which burnt to the ground a block of buildings, namely, the General Store, Post Office Hall, and a 4-roomed dwelling near by. The whole of the contents were lost with the exception of a valuable piano owned by the Lachlan Foot ball Club, which was carried to safety by three Lachlan residents who were first on the scene. The buildings, which were con structed of pine weatherboards, were owned by Mr Samuel Mapley, but were occupied by Mr and Mrs Eric O'Brien, and Mr and Mrs Evans. The occupiers were all in Hobart for the week-end when the outbreak oc curred. The blaze was noticed at New Nor folk, which is over four miles away, by the police, who, knowing some thing was amiss to cause such a glare in the sky, hailed a car, and were soon on the' scene and rendered valuable help to save a dwelling only separated from the hall by a paling fence, and1 occupied by Mr and' Mrs Len Ma...

Restricting Exports HARMFUL UNLESS UNIVERSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
Restricting Exports j HARMFUL UNLESS UNIVERSAL. When commenting on the export restrictions advocated by the High Commissioner, Mr S. M. Bruce, Mr H. G. Colombie, of Melbourne', ad vised, caution before Australia com mitted) itself to any definite policy. His view is that if quantitative and. qualitative restrictions must become the order of the day regarding ex ports to Great Britain, much co ordination work is required between the various Dominions. Mr Colom-' bie pointed! out that Australia had once again led the way by, this year, reducing the exportable quantities of apples and eliminating lower grade fruit, but that, unfortunately, this lead had) not beem followed by the other Dominions, as a result of which some of the sacrifices made by Aus tralian orchardists would be nullified. The worst offender was Canada, which had this year doubled its ex ports to the United1 Kingdom, having for the season (up to 10th February) shipped some eight million bushels against the normal quant...

Water Wanted GEEVESTON-PORT HUON SCHEME. REPORT TO BE OBTAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
Water Wanted GEEVESTON-PORT HUON SCHEME. REPORT TO BE OBTAINED. At yesterday's meeting of the Es perance Municipal Council, Warden Burgess said that it was becoming more and more apparent that if Port Huon was to develop as an over seas port as fruitgrowers desired, the council would have to provide an adequate supply of water for the ves sels. He had been' informed that it cost three of the vessels that came to Port Huon this season an average of £25 to obtain water at Hobart, so that quite a good revenue was to be ooiameu u trie waier were maae available at the wharf. During the present summer many residents of Geeveston had run short of tank water, and even in normal years the supply of household was below re quirements at many houses. It was absolutely necessary that a town water supply should be made avail able if the district were to advance on sound lines. The matter has been before the residents for some time, and the general opinion ap peared to be favorable to a scheme bei...
Fruitgrowers' Grant EXTRAORDINARY ACTION BY BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
Fruitgrowers' Grant — * — - .? EXTRAORDINARY ACTION BY BANK. After taking eight months to find cut to their own satisfaction which apple growers could1 be designated as 'necessitous,' so that they could par ticipate in the Federal grant of £63,000, the Agricultural Bank au thorities of Tasmania have discovered another means of delaying payment by inserting the following paragraph in the claim forms which are now being distributed to those considered eligible fo-i a share of the mony: — 'Before disbursement of the above amount can be made, it wi.- be neces sary for you to fill in and' return the schedule hereunder, setting out the names, addresses, and amounts owing by you to the various persons to whom you wish payment to be made'. This list should indicate the amount owing, and the amount you wish to be pard respectively to each person. Apparently the bank has taken up the attitude that it will not trust the growers to distribute the money to the best advantage. It seems an ex trao...

HIS FOUR-TON TONGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
HIS FOUR-TON TONGUE. The Greenland whale, though Jiuge, is timid and harmless, but the killer whale, much smaller, is one of the fiercest denizens of the ocean, and is the only species of cetacean which has . a complete set of teeth in both jaws. Killers hunt in packs and are thus N much more than a match for the great cachalot or sperm whale. According to Captain Mills Joyce, the Antarctic explorer, in attacking the killers leap high into the air by the whale's side. Two or three of them at tack its saws until they rend them asunder. They then devour the tongue, i which will frequently weigh as much ..' as four tons, leaving their huge prey to die. The captain also asserts that he has seen a pack of eight to twelve killers come to the ice-edge and leap' six feet out of the water, as if to dis cover whether any seals were basking on it. If there were, they would dive underneath, smash up the ice, and col lect their victims. If they were of commercial use kil lers would soon be great...

SIR NYUM NYUM! [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934
SIR NYUM NYUM! One does not look for humor at an ?investiture ceremony, but an amusing story of an investiture at Windsor, when Queen Victoria bestowed knight hood on, among others, Charles Halle, the musician and father of Mr. Gus tave Halle, is told in the latter's re cently-published reminiscences, 'May- fair to Maritzburff.' One stout man from the wilds of Australia, who had played host on the occasion of a Royal tour (the author relates), was so overwhelmed at the solemnity of the investiture that he completely lost his head. He hurried up when his time came, plumped down on the cushion on both knees and joined his hands in prayer! The Queen bit her lips and mur mured to Ponsonby, 'And his name?' The M.C. bent down and whispered, 'What might your name be, sir?'' 'Eh?' asked the bewildered one. 'What's your name?' repeated Pon sonby. 'I — I've forgotten!' gasped the Aus tralian. 'He says he- has forgotten Madam!' reported Ponsonby, and the Queen softly touched her confused subje...
