CONVEYS POPE'S REQUEST [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951

CONVEYS POPE'S REQUEST Among many notable themes the following emerge as more memorable. He gave a vivid and touching * picture of His Holiness, Pope Pius XII.. a man over seventy, gravely ill, work ing, as a matter of routine, from 4.30 a.m. to the following 2 a.m.. oppressed bv continuous re port of persecution of the Church, even of his Cardinals, in Communist-held lands, pre occupied with the administrative care of four., hundred million Catholics — and passed on the Pope's only, request to him namely, that Catholics pray for peace- liberty, and the harmony of order and justice in the pre sent disastrous condition of the world. In particular, besides Mass and the Sacraments, they should use the Rosary, especial ly in the family circle, as a pot ent and alway? ready-to-hand weapon. ? From his personal observation made behind the Iron Curtain, he described and instanced the almost brutelike, childish men- j talffy of £be Russian masses, wsirped by over 30 years of Com munist false...

SOIL: THE FARMERS' EQUITY Rules For Maintaining Fertility [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951

SOU: THE fARMERS' EQUTTY Rides Fe^ Mufrtoming Fertility Land owners in England realise that their best equity is in tfte land and what it will produce. They will not lease farming land to be cropped indiscriminately at the will of the tenant* but insist that a definite rota tion will be adopted to en sure retention of the fertil ity of the soil. AU rotations include a root crop and a period of pasture. Tenant farmers in Australia would look askance at any lease that contained clauses definitely laving down a rotation for var ious farm paddocks, but (asks John L. Green, Assistant Prin cipal Agronomist, Department of Agriculture) what right has a tenant, or even an owner, to farm land until its productivity is reduced to an unprofitable state? It is not a personal matter, but one of national im portance . In his extension work among farmers in this State, Mr. Green emphasises the value of soil fertility. WHAT IS SOIL FERTILITY? It is, he says, the ability of soil to produce crops, inc...

~ ' EXrltpREnS ;. ^Pw*// jf 'If JOHN OXLEY John Oxley, Surveyor-General of New South Wales, set out id 1817 to discover the course of the Lachlan River. Following the river downstream past the present site of Forbes, he found that it flowed into marsh land and, unable to proceed further, decided to strike out for the South Australian coast. Shortage of water forced his return to the Lach lan, which he rejoined below the marshes previously . encountered, but only to meet more marshland further on. Oxley decided to turn back and, leaving the Lachlan, crossed the Bogan River and followed the upper waters of the Macquarie back to Bathurst. In 1818, Oxley led an expedition to investigate the Macquarie River, but again marshland impeded the progress of his party. Considering this ta-be the termination of the river, he marched eastward and reached Port Macquarie, having discovered the Castlereagh and Peel rivers and the rich and fertile Liverpool Plains. s On the occasion of the jubilee of...

COUNTRY LOSING OUT Commission Concentrates On City Areas (To The Editor) 'Sir, — Last year you were kind enough to grant me space to quote some housing figures, and I again seek your favor to pub; lish further housing statistics compiled from the Housing Com mission's 'Quarterly Review,' dated 31/3/51. . - Up to that date the Commis sion had completed 15,622 per manent housing units since its inception. Of the total, 13,85i were constructed in the dense ly populated areas of Sydney, Newcastle region and Wollon gong-lvembla district. ? The sparsely settled countryside, comprising . well over 90 per cent, of the State, got only 1,771. ? The Commission lias erected 6,105 housing units of brick, but the metropolitan area alone was favored with 5,243 of them. The heavily populated industrial bloc got 5,742 altogether, and our sadly neglected country towns a mere 381. On that small coastal strip, which has received too much attention from the McGirr Government, 8,127 dwellings were built ...

A REVIEW Of Wool Marketing Scheme [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951

AMiE» r Of Wool marketing Scheme A few months ago, before the full details of the scheme be came known, I issued a warn ing to growers, through these columns, pointing out the dan ger of voting in favor of any scheme, the details of which up to now, have been shrouded under a veU of secrecy and speculation. The Farmers and Settlers' As sociation does not advocate for or against the proposals, the same attitude is adopted by the Boorowa branch, but members remain free to advocate for or against the scheme. In the previous article the danger of Ministerial control, or power of veto ovsr the de cisions of the Board of Austra lia, was set out; however, such is not the case in the set-up of the constitution of the Wool Board. I quote: 'Administration: By the Board of Australia will not be 'subejct to Ministerial control or veto, except with regard to approval of the panel of names from which the grower members of the Board select the Chair man.' That statement speaks for it self and obvi...

THE GARDEN HOW TO MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951

mwm HOW TO MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE . Roses have been known as the 'Queen of Flowers', for ages past, though there are plenty of people who harbor all kinds of miscon ceptions regarding, their treatment. 'In actual fact, there are yery few condi tions under which the plants fail to thrive and flower ^ quite satisfactorily. Perhaps two of the greatest drawbacks to success are shady positions and badly drained sub soils. . It has been considered that without clay being present in the soil, roses are more or less a failure— but this is not actually the case. True it is that if one is looking for ex hibition roses a good mild red clay subsoil gives better, body or substance, and also has some bearing on the intensity -of the colour; but for average garden purposes almost any soil that is well drained, will give quite good results. Those, who garden on s-md hills will need to add some rich soil to a depth of 18 inches or two feet, but if clay is difficult to obtain no regrets should be enterta...

MATTLAND FARMERS WON'T RETURN TO THE LAND Country Ravaged By Floods [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951

MAITLAND FARMERS WONTRETHRN TO THE LAM) Country Ravaged By . Floods Maitland farmers, who tasted the advantages of a certain income in secondary industry while their farm» were under water in the floods, will not leave their steady jobs now to return and clean up the farms, the Maitland 'Mercury' says in a depressing report of local conditions. 'It has to be seen to be be lieved,' the paper says, 'but more than three-quarters of Maitland's farms, agreed in many circles to be made up of soil as fertile as any in Austra lia,- are still desolate and idle, bearing the scare thrust upon them by devastating floodwater innundation almost two years ago. 'Heartbroken by their losses, disgusted with the failure of even an echo to their loud cries for assistance from officialdom, many farmers have long since left their farms, which are a wasteland, with weeds and for eign growth making prolific headway. 'A tour of inspection reveal ed that not more than 20 per cent, of rich agricultural land i...
