In their search for ways and means to - reduce over head expenses at the show, the committeemen explored every avenue. The President (Mr. T. A.

Local Medicos To Carry Out Blood Typing Of Local Residents [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
Local Medicos To Carry Out Blood Typing Of Local Residents In view of the Red Cross Blood Typing Unit being unable to visit Boorowa at an early date, local medical officers are to be asked by the Boorowa District Hospital Board to carry out blood typing of local residents. This decision was made at the .Board's meeting last Monday night when a letter was read from the * Red Cross advising that their Blood Typing Unit had completed its itinerary and that there was little likelihood of it visiting Boorowa in the near future. It was suggested that the typ ing might be carried out by local medical officers if they were approached. Dr. W. P. L. Logins, who was present at the meeting, assured the Board that he would be only too happy to fall in with the suggestion and felt sure that Dr. Keif would feel the same way. .When a day is convenient to the local doctors, blood typing of residents will be carried, out. The day will be advertised and published and every effort made to point out to ...

TO THE EDITOR. "BOOROWA'S BAD ROADS" [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
TO THE EDITOR. 'BOOROWA'S BAD ROADS' Sir, — Would you kindly grant me space in your valuable paper re Bad Roads. I quite agree with the letter in a previous issue and endorse the whole of it. On the Heathfield Road the last few days, no less than four cars have been bogged. This road is in an impassable con dition, and if we get much rain this winter I feel sure we will be isolated for the rest of the winter.* A week or so ago they sent the grader out to grade a bit of mud on to it, which made the position worse. Even if you get bogged it is impossible to to keep a car on it. It is scan dalcus! There is no excuse, as com plaints about this roads have been made for a long time. There is no doubt this Shire wants a thorough . clean-up! Why don't they allot each Rid ing's rates, less overhead ex penses, to each Ridiiig? And each Councillor receive his share; then we would 'be . able to blame our local Councillor! There is nothing- left for us to do but to cut Boorowa put, and when we c...

FROGMORE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION TO MEET MONDAY NIGHT Many Important Matters For Discussion On Agenda Paper The quarterly meeting of the Frogmore Progress As sociation will be 'held on Monday night next, June 25. Quite a few important items are on the agenda and a good attendance seems certain. On display at the meeting will be a sample of the weed known as Serrated Tussock (formerly known as Yass River Tussock). J 'As this weed1 has been described by some Shires as their greatest menace, and has already been report ed in this Shire, it is clear ly the duty of every land , owner to acquaint himself with its appearance,' said the President, Mr. F. Cass ells. The Association is also anx ious to know how many local people .have milking cows which they would like tested for T.B. Quotes have been secured from a qualified Veterinary Surgeon for the job of testing. The more cows which are tested in the one visit, the cheaper will be the cost per cow. It would be very beneficial to the Associa...

Battle For Maher Cup To-morrow LOCAL PLAYERS CONFIDENT OF DOWNING HOLDERS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
Battle For Maher Cup To-morrow LOCAL PLACERS CONFIDENT OF DOWNING HOLDERS In spite of the opinion of some critics, Boorowa Rugby League players have an even chance of winning the coveted Maher Cup from Barmednjan when they travel to that centre in quest of the trophy tomorrow (Saturday). Boorowa, like all other teams challenging, always give of their best in a Mahei- Cup battle. We expect them to do just that to-morrow and. with a little assistance from 'Lady Lucki' a win over Barmedman is not beyond them. . Barmedman are always a hard team to beat on their own ground, but other Group Nine teams have proved that they are not unbeatable. Barmedman's strength lies in their forwards, particularly the front row, and inside backs. Eoorow'a's strength also lies in the forwards, and to-morrow's game should develop into a ti tanic struggle and success for Boorowa will, in the main, de pend on whether the green and gold forwards can hold the mighty pack from the Bland. To-morrow's game will ...

THE EDITOR SAYS WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR SHOW? [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
THE EDITOR SAYS: WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR SHOW? Reports elsewhere in this week's issue of the 'News' in dicate that our Jubilee Show for 1951 showed a nett loss of £234/2/4. Even if we write off certain items as capital expendi ture and deduct £95 from the lota], £139 is still far too great a deficit for us citizens to face with equinamity. A close scrut iny of the expense account does not help us, for all items ap pear to be necessary, and it is doubtful if any substantial re duction in expenditure could be effected without lowering the general standard of the Show. Possibly, by cheese-paring, re vising and reducing the ' schedule, a few pounds could be saved and the deficit reduced accordingly. This would be helpful, but would not be attacking Che real problem — why is the Boorowa Show a losing proposition? Committeemen made several suggestions about increasing entry money, car parkin u fees, membership subscriptions, etc., and these might help a little to overcome the lag, though th...

HIS LORDSHIP ENTERTAINED BY PARISHIONERS The parishioners of St. Patrick^ Church gathered at the Boorowa Guild Hall at 4 p.m. and entertained His Lordship,' Most Rev. Guilfred Young, D.D., to afternoon tea. Mr. W. T. Fahey and Mr. E. H. Lawler spoke of the happi ness of all in having the Bishop present on his first official visi tation of the Parish and assur ed him of the loyalty and af fection of the people to him personally and as their Bishop. It is not possible, in this space, even to give a list of the subjects treated by the Bishop during these four days ending on Monday, still less to quote. In all, he spoke fourteen times. These speeches, ranging from talks to formal sermons, given at tiroes . with simplicity, at times with oratory in the high classical manner, had as a source, common to all, the Bishop's profound knowledge of Theology, his rich experiences gained in his recent tour of the world, his awareness of the gravity of the present crisis in human affairs and his ow...
