OBITUARY. MRS. JOHN FINDLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 26 January 1951
OBITUARY. MRS. JOHN FINDLAY. The sad passing of one of Thorn. ton's oldest residents, Mrs. John Findlay, on Friday, 12th January, after a short illness, came as a great shock to her husband and family. The demise of this gracious and kindly lady causes a great loss in the community, as she was a good worker for the Red Cross and all charitable organisations throughout the shire. A tireless worker for the church, she was honored by being asked to open the new Presbyterian Church at Thornton. Mrs. Findlay was born at Upper Thornton in 1871, her parents being among the oldest pioneers of the dis trict, and her early home is now sub merged by the Eildon Weir. The funeral left her home, "Rose bankN"?hornton, after a short ser, vice, for' .the Alexandra cemetery, where a' large number of mourners showed the respect in which she was held throughout the district. The casket bearers were Messrs. R. J. Findlay, L. Coller, H. Nicholas, Jim Taylor, W. A. Findlay, Jack Taylor, and the.pall beare...

HOSPITAL STAFF. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 26 January 1951
HOSPITAL STAFF. To the Editor. Sir,-The staff position at the Alex andra Hospital has been desperate for some time, and because of the inabil ity of the trained staff to meet the demands made on them there the po sition has every indication of becom ing worse. To call on the trained staff to do domestic work is, first, throwing` extra burdens on them, and also is a waste of trained professional ser vice. This has not been temporary, but has been going on for some con siderable time, and is causing much concern. Another factor which indirectly af fects this' problem is that there has been adverse criticism against the hospital discussed in public -.This tends to lower the prestige of the hos pital and makes the position of ob taining staff more difficult. I should like to point out that the hospital is administered by the com* mittee, which is elected by the public who are subscribers. My committee would welcome any criticism which is not frivolous and would give it every considerati...

Australia's Debt to the Gold Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 26 January 1951
Australia's Debt to the Gold Industry. Alniost one hundred years ago (in 1851) payable deposits of gold were discovered in Australia. That event had a far-reaching effect on the future development of this continent. It brought to Australia not only weath but also population, and it laid the foundations of widespread settlement and industry, on which Australia has grown to nationhood.. The romantic story is told iii an attractive book is sued by the Chambers of Mines of Victoria and Queensland.- Under the simple title, "Gold," this digest-size publication tells us.in everyday lan guage the part that gold has played in Australia's development over the last century. It shows us also the important functions of gold in the world of to-day, and the source of strength it can provide in the future. From the historical angles as from the up-to-the-minute practical view point of the investor, it is a story of absorbing interest..
Blood Transfusion [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 26 January 1951
Blood Transfusion In World War II., the value of transfusion, often of many pints of blood or serum, was abundantly demonstrated, not only as an im mediate life-saving measure, but as a means of preventing complications and shortening the period of suffer ing and incapacitation of severely ..wounded men. Since the war, this knowledge of the beneficial effects of translusion as practised by nultary medical ol ficers, has been appiieu to civilians, with the result thac operations, hith erto impossible, can now be unaer taken with safety, and people badly injured by accidents, or suffering from illness causing haemorrhage, or mothers and babies in cases of abnormalities of childbirth, can be saved in a much larger proportion of cases. But all this means that we now need more blood donors (in fact, 25,530 blood donations were given last year in Victoria as compared with 400 in 1938 !), the reason being that before the war transfusion had been used much less extensively, chiefly as a des...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 26 January 1951
To the Editor. Sir,--I would like to draw the at tention of the public concerned to the' - wrong impression gathered from the council reporf concerning the U.T. Creek and Rose street bridge. First, I was not notified that the deputation to the shire council concerning this matter would be received, until ap proximately 21/ hours prior to the re ception time. This made it impossible to contact the two farmer represen tatives early enough for them to be present. This short notice was not very fair of the council, on whose table the petition had laid for a month. When this petition was placed before the council, only the abutment trench on one side had been dug and it was definitely not too late to alter plans of the project. This deputation asked for the alteration of plans, and to make this a traffic and foot bridge, not a stock and foot bridge. Stringers used for this project are approximate ly 131/2 ton steel, and with the addi i?c^ of t,'-o more stringers and appro S...--.-. . - ....
