Correspondence. FRUIT INDUSTRY CRITICISM. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

Correspondence. 4* FRUIT INDUSTRY CRITICISM. To the Editor. Sir,— Any set-back in an industry is naturally accompanied by shoals of advice, both from those engaged in the industry sstiA those who 'look on.' Therefore fruitgrowers are- the recipients 01 advice irom every quar ter. Doubtless some of the troubles from which we suffer are of our own making, others are the result of the world-wide disorganisation. We have worked on more or less haphazard lines — now that lessened demand calls 'halt.' We may fall into the error of following the advice of un practical theorists. For instance, your correspondent, Mr Brooker, paints an impossible picture. He images civil servants creating 'new' markets. It is not too unkind to say that the only thing civil servants are likely to create is extra expense for the taxpayer. Evidently Mr Brooker knows very little regarding the rami fications of the fruit industry, or he would not make so palpably absurd a suggestion. A 'Cygnet Grower' puts forwar...

New Publications [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

New Publications 1 'House of Gallantry,' by V. J. Vantes (N.S*W., Bookstall)— Many novelists believe it is far better to take- their stories from life :than . to work upon a theme in an imaginary situation. Whilst many famous novelists have depended upon their own imagination for their characters it is certain that such great men as Charles Dickens' and Sir Walter Scott drew more uponl that which surrounded them than upon which was i: within them for their real liter ary achievements. It is a long step from the London of Dickens' day. to Sydney to to-day,, but a young writer who has been discovered by a Sydney firm of publishers has used what has actually happened to his family dur ing the past hundred yeais as the theme for his first novel' 'House of! Gallantry.' The writer is V. J. ! Del Vante, whose ancestors fled from j the French Reign of Terror 'early,1 last century and came to New South ' Wales. The Del Vantes were heirs', to a-Woble French Dukedom, but with l revolution in t...

MUNICIPAL AND POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

MUNICIPAL AND POLITICAL. It is not often that 'municipal councillors (in the Huon, at all events) face the electors and give a personal account of their ' steward ship,- but for- the first time for many vears such a proceeding1 -is to take place next Monday evening at Glen 'Huon, when Cr. V. J. Skinner will 1 address the electors ,of. Upper Huon; on the work of the- Huon Municipal Council during -the past,, few. years. Much ' interest is being taken in the elections this year particularly, and Cr.' Skinner is to be commended for giving the ratepayers such an excel lent opportunity for clearing up any doubts or grievances that they may be suffering under. It is to be- re gretted that all the candidates do not adopt this course of giving the rate payers an opportunity' of- judging their fitness or otherwise for muni cipal honors. On the same evening Mr, Ben Watkins, one of the candi dates for the Franklin electorate in the coming State elections, will also address the meeting in suppo...

Huonville-Ranelagh Water Scheme DISCUSSION BY HUON COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

Huonville-Ranelagh Water. Scheme DISCUSSION BY HUON COUNCIL. At this month's meeting' of the Huon Municipal Council, Warden' G. C. Frankcomb reported that the poll on the proposed water supply scheme i for Huonville and Ranelagh had' been ; rejected1 by_ the naiTow mai'gin of /13 i votes. This result may have been ' partly brought about by a misunder standing on the part of the rate- 1 payers or householders of their vot- ! ing powers, and also by an- inequit- ' able1 method of rating. ? A number ' of persons who were householders did not realise until it was too late, that j they had power to vote in1 spite of the ! fact that they are not directly re- ' sponsible for the payment of rates, i The 'Council had decided1 that a per- 1 son who was rated at £35 per annum should have only one tap, and the inference was drawn that the rate would have to reach £70 beforo a second tap would be provided. This j would mean that one person would be ' paying £3 for one tap, while another ; would ...

ARE SYDNEY PEOPLE HEARTLESS? [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

ARE SYDNEY PEOPLE HEARTLESS? Is Sydney the city without a heart? Are Sydney's business men, news boys, typists, shoppers, taxi-drivers, and all the other manner of people , who crowd the streets, devoid of all human feeling? . . . or are they just unob servant? The other day a man dressed as ' a., parson, lurched, grimacing like a mad man, down Martin Place, and for several blocks up Pitt Street, Sydney. His eyes showed acute mental stress; now and again lie leaned against posts to .get. his breath and then stumbled onwards. Anyone seeing him would know that he v/as going through un told tortures, and, yet, all the thou sands of people that he passed in his journey, not one asked if he needed assistance, and cnly a few people Slanced at him. Turning from Martin Place into Pitt Street, the man dressed as a parson bumped into a young man, who threw at him lurid speech. Probably the man would not have been so an noyed if he had known that he was unconsciously acting as a n 'extra' in a...

SCHOOLBOY HOWLERS [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

SCHOOLBOY HOWLERS Charles Darwin was the originator of the human species. He said a lot about it. Catarrah is a musical instrument — especially in Spain. The chairman replied in a few ap propriated! words. A haberdasher is a man who washes out harbours. His mother gave him a good dose of absence salts. The world is round because if you look at the sky all round you can see it everywhere. 'A' pence plus 'B' equals ex pense. You should always give a drying person artificial perspiration. A ball falls to the ground because it is pulled by gratitude. The heart is generally over the ribs in the midst of the borax. The judge was very kind, he asked the deceased if he had anything to say. The horse you bet on is called a 'Cert.' If it loses it is called a 'Dead Cert.' O.M. means on- the make — a lot of politicians get these letters. A Tory is a man who is for 'some time on one side. ?«? The rule of the road is always to look before you walk in front of a tram. Vicarious means to act as a v...
