WHAT IS A LIVING AREA? [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 24 June 1924

WHAT IS A LIVING AREA? In the sheep and wool industry, what is a living area? How many I sheep should a landholder be able to run safely so as to make a reasonable living? The question is of interest because of our land settlement schemes. As far as is known, it has never been officially or authoritatively stated just what is a living area. See ing, however, that government after government has been promoting land settlement f or generations, there ought to be some clear idea about it. There is a belief outside the Lands Department's idea of a grazing living area is an area that will safely run .1(-0Q sheep. Last week the annual conference of the Graziers' Associa tion decided that a lessee of Crown lands should be allowed to increase his holding by the acquisition of settlement lease tenure, capable of carrying 3500 sheep. WHY MEN FAIL. Delegate after delegate expressed the opinion that the department's idea of a living area n Crown lands is too mean or small. They urged that a man...

GRAND OPERA. SOME OF THE HUGE SALARIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 24 June 1924

GRAND OPERA. - SOME OF THE HUGE SALARIES PAID. Mr. L. De Noskowski writes in the I Sunday Times: — | In the history of the theatre, grand opera has always been a very costly enterprise, associated with all sorts i of risks and financial disappoint ments. 1 do not think there has yet been an impresario who has made a fortune out of grand opera, and nowr AnAva Virtucac awo their AVI fit ence either to State subsidy or pri vate donations, like in America. There is probably only one great opera house in the world which pays, and that is the famous Colon Theatre in Buenos Ayres, which is due entire ly to the great popularity of grand opera in South America. There the subscriptions for the performances are sold months in advance, and 60 per cent, of the takings are in hand before the season commences. Most European_ opera houses are subsi dised by Government or munipipal grants. The Metropolitan Opera in New York is run by a board of mil lionaires, who defray the loss. The Chicago opera o...

PRICES OF APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 24 June 1924

PRICES OF APPLES. The Australian Commissioners at the Wembley Exhibition are giving further attention to the price of apples sold at the Australian Pavi lion. Mr. Shakespeare compares the pre sent charge of 9d. per lb., consist ing of three or four apples, with the 4d. per lb. charged at the London stalls. On behalf of the concessionaire it is claimed that lie pays 17s. per case for the apples at Covent Garden, and allows 20 per cent, of rejections, which brings the cost to 6d. per lb. Mr. Shakespeare contends that the middlemen should be replaced by direct sales. By a small expenditure on advertising all the available offer ings could be sold. He considers that the present prices are hampering the campaign to popularise Austra lian fruit. Dried fruits are finding a ready market at Wembley, and sales re ported average £600 per week. Mr. Shakespeare is of the opinion that an advertising campaign would cap ture the British market.
