COCKCHAFER BEETLE PREVALENT ON TORKE PENINSULA. Reports have boon received by the Central Agricultural Bureau from two branches on Yorke Peninsula, (Waur altee and Weavers) concerning the prevalence of larvae of the cockchafer beetle. Similar reports from Yorke Peninsula were received last year. The larvae are damaging the crops con siderably, and in suggesting a method of coping with the pest, Mr. R. Hill ( District Agricultural Instructor ) points out that in other countries where the Cockchafer beetle 1b troub lesome, use is made of heavy road rollers as a means of killing: the lar vae. He suggests that in light soils, farmers might, resort to a well weight ed cultipacker crossed on the affected areas. This process would not dam age the crops, but might be expected to kill the larvae which come close to the surface of the soil at this time of the year.

Tractor Troubles [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 12 August 1927
Tractor Troubles Trouble with the carburetttor of aM tractor is frequeEtly caused through water in the petrol. When the water reaches the petrol jet it will cause the engine to misfire. This trouble is generally caused through careless ness .infilling up. ' ' ? It may be observed that a rich mix- ': ? tore can generally be detected by, black smoke from the exhaust, whilst a weak mixture often causes a loud ,, popping from the carburetter. A weak mixture is not always caused by a shortage of petrol. Sometimes there is ^i toad joint connection be tween ^ the carburetter and the inlet .ralves, causing 'a surplus quantity of air to be sucked into the cylinder, thereby npsetting the mixture., K; should be borne in mind that artificial heating of the carbupretter also af fects' the ouallty1 of tie mixture. PraclStcaily all carbuetters require some heating device. , In hot weather the effebt of this heating will -cause the petrol to eva porate more readily, and this may produce' too rich a...

This tremendous expend iture of energy supplies scientific bas is for the relief ,-?? expressed by many piomiaeni tracK coaches, that, when the present sprint records are beaten, it will be by fractions of a second; so small that they can be recorded only by electric timing appartus.
