CLUB NOTES. FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
CLUB NOTES. I FRANKLIN. Allan Richardson played his best game for Franklin last Saturday. He marked well and got that extra bit of dash into' his game that put his work far beyond last season's efforts. Ernie Giles and Bas. Temple Were the outstanding defenders. Both showed that they are still among the most reliable long kicks in the dis trict. G. Douglas bore the brunt of the ruck work, and already appears to be in great form. Athol Lipscombe only decided at the last minute to play, as he had not been in the best of health, but he put in some splendid work. 'Nugget' Fulton shaped well for so early in the season. His team mates are hoping to see him reach the form he was in two seasons ago| wheni he was one of the best ruck players in the Huon. ' N. Johnston appeared to have one of those days when nothing goes right. He worked1 hard' right' through but lacked those brilliant finishes which stamps him as one of the, best, players in the State. 'Chum' Freeman had not had a kick this ...
KERMANDIE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
KERMANDIE. 'Hec' Eyles,' last year's coach, again set a high standard for his men to play up to. Besides playing a fine game all through the match, his high marking needs special mention. He must also be congratulated on his handling of the many juniors in his team against Cygnet. Stan. Tucker played the game spec tators expect from him— solid and dashing. He started more than his share of Kermandie attacks. Jim Greatbatch showed much dash till his condition gave out. His kick ing was splendid. Phil. Gorman was very safe 'in goal. His kicking of the heavy ball was also very good. Eric Monks playeH perhaps the best game of his career to date. If this young player can retain his form of last Saturday, he will be a great player for the red and blues. Syd. Gane, one of Kermandie's most dependable players, gave glimpses of his best form. His four goals were most acceptable. W. Knight .played .exceptionally well till half-time, but a nasty fall and 'bellows to mend' kept him quiet from th...

EYES OF LIGHT. Revived practice of Ancient Priestcraft. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
EYES OF LIGHT. Revived practice of Ancient Priestcraft. Eleven o'clock on Armistice Day in Melbourne. A thin pencil of sunlight strikes down through an aperture m the roof of the new Shrine of Remem brance. It glows upon the centre of a sacred stone slab sunken below the floor. ^ During two silent minutes the word 'Love' in the inscription, 'Greater Love Hath No Man,' blazes in a halo of golden light. About it people stand, heads bowed in reverence, their eyes enthralled. So, no doubt, were the eyes of the ancient Romans, as, through the roof of the Pantheon, the morning sun lit up the image of their deity. For this 'eye of light' in Mel bourne's war memorial is no modern ideai The building of temjples so that the sun can be made to light up the Holy of Holies on some special day in the year was one of the earliest prac tices of ancient priestcraft. Back in the dawn of civilisation in the Nile Valiey it was done. There the wise men began to predict the change of seasons from the pos...
DAIRYING PROBLEMS. To Test or Not to Test. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
DAIRYING PROBLEMS. To T est or N ot to T est. In times like these it is ^necessary to watch all expenditures to make sure that the outlay is warranted. In . view of the fact that cows will continue to give milk whether they are tested or not leads some farmers to eliminate this expense. On the other hand, cer tain progressive breeders and com mercial milk producers do not consider it wise to economise at this point. They feel that if they are to maintain or increase their present high stan dard of economical milk production, they must know how much milk each individual cow produces, and what it tests. Our most thoughtful dairymen ap preciate the value of records not only as a guide to feeding and management practices, but they are rapidly coming to realise that records on all cows are essential to a constructive breeding programme. Investigations are showing the need for. records on all the daughters of a bull, and all the daughters of the cows, to secure a measure of the breeding a...
GAME TO THE LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
, GAME TO THE LAST., .Bill was pugnacious, but he didn't live long. A few days after his funeral his widow was hanging pensively over her front gate. A neighbor came along and stopped to commiserate with her. 'Well, poor Bill,' she' remarked, ' 'e'll be 'itting the 'arp with the lian gels now.' 'Not 'e,' said the widow. 'More like ly 'e'll be 'itting the hangels with the 'arp!' ' 'How much for this big dog?' 'Five pounds.' 'For this smaller one?' 'Ten pounds.' 'For this tiny one?' 'Fifteen pounds.' 'How much will it cost if I don't buy a dog at all?' Mrs. Jobson: 'That hat makes your face look short.' : ; ; , Mrs. Dobson: 'That's funny. It made my husband's face look long.' 'My wife got a grain of sand in her eye. She went to the doctor, and it cost me a guinea.' 'That is nothing. My wife got a fur coat in her eye when she went to the . furrier, and it cost me 50 gui neas.'
Raminea ELECTRIC LIGHT EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
Raminea ELECTRIC LIGHT EXTENSION. During the week-end' a meeting was held at the Raminea Public Hall .to discuss the possibility of getting an -extension of the electric light and power service to Raminea. Cr. B. '0;»Plummer, who presided, said .that the Hydro-Electric Commission had stipulated that an annual revenue of £130' would' be necessary to ensure the extension, being made, and that prospective- consumers had signified their willingness to guarantee £147. He urged them to fully 'realise what it meant to give such a guarantee, and not to sign up unless they were fully prepared- to fulfil the obligation. Dr. N. G. Abbott, one of the can didates at the forthcoming State elec tions, congratulated the council and the ratepayers on their enterprise in endeavouring to secure an extension of the hydro-electric current as far south as Raminea. He also com mended those in authority for their foresight in, -providing an 11,000 volt service as far as . Dover, as this enabled future exte...
DOUGLAS CREDIT. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
DOUGLAS CREDIT. To the Editor. Sir, — I notice In your issue of the 19th inst. a criticism of those people who are asking very loudly for mone tary reform. But you do not- put forward any arguments in defence of the present system, and in that you are probably wise. Surely you are aware that the reason of the present agitation is the almost un bearable condition of the people as a whole, who see a plethora of goods and produce around them, which they are not allowed to make use of, unless they first work and earn the mo'njey or tickets, book entries, or whatever you care to call the medium of exchange. We see a most marvellous scien tific advance in all sorts of labor aving machines. For instance a man and a boy work a bolt making mach ine andi do the work of six thousand men. A calculating machine does the work of sixty ledger clerks in a bank. I understand there is a standard machine now for doing the work of seven) clerks. A concrete layer in- France which, worked by five men, la...
MANAGEMENT OF THE FRUIT INDUSTRY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
MANAGEMENT OF THE FRUIT INDUSTRY. To the Editor. . Sir,— In . to-day's issue of the Huon and Derwent Times, O. M. Calvert in . criticising my suggestion's for a committee to manage the industry, says I do not realise 'that the Port Huon is the living outcome of ideas similar to my own.' I do most thoroughly realise this and my opin ion is that the result of all attempts at co-operation have failed through the same cause — lack of support on. behalf of the growers; and I venture to say that if the same Port Huon had 90 per cent of the growers in' their own organisation success would be achieved. Further, O. M. Cal vert says such a board would have to have statutory power — Exactly. Authority to act, without which any committee or advisory board is noth ing but an object farce. Any busi ness must be controlled by some body, call it committee of whatever you like but that committee or board must be appointed 'by bona-fide growers, and must have full power of attorney to act. O. M. Calv...
SHE WASN'T AFRAID. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
SHE WASN'T AFRAID. Jack and Jill, strolling along the street the other day, parted company. Only for a moment, though. Jacki passed round the foot of a ladder standing in their way, while Jill walk ed boldly underneath. 'Don't you feel nervous, walking under a ladder like that?' queried Jack. 'Certainly not,' replied Jill. 'I've no time for such superstitious nonsense. Besides, I had my fingers crossed!'
TWELVE MILES HIGH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
TWELVE MILES HIGH. Most people considered Professor Piccard a crank when he talked of en closing himself and a companion, in a sealed chamber, and, maintaining life, in the absence of outside air, by means of an oxygen apparatus, allow ing a balloon to carryt him into the unexplored stratosphere; where the at mospheric pressure is 50 millimetres as against 760 on the earth's surface. That he succeeded in rising to a height of over ten miles, taking obser vations and obtaining much valuable scientific data, constituted a memor able feat. Now his record has been broken by three Russians, under the leadership of Commander Prokofieff. Starting from Frunze, near Moscow, they at tained an altitude of nearly twelve miles, staying up for several hours and descending some forty miles from their starting-point. The difference be tween the temperature inside the gon dola ^and outside, at the maximum' height, amounted to 215 degrees Fah renheit! The spherical gondola of the balloon was of dural...
THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BORDER A Thrilling Romance of the Mexican Border Country. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] CHAPTER XLIV. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BORDER H A Thrilling Romance of the Mexican Border Country. By TOM GILL. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] CHAPTER XL IV. ? 'You do us much honor, senores, much honor.' The words came a little thickly. The voice was not quite steady, but the black eyes Jjlazed with / unmistakable hatred. 'I had not thought to see you so honor a band of simple vaqueros. I thought such ' talents as yours, senores, were more suitable for the company of women.' The grip on Ted's arm tightened. 'Not yet,' the quiet voice warned. Jito watched them. He Btood, legs slightly crouching, as if awaiting a blow. The unmoved silence of those two lashed him to fury. They were so utterly alone, so completely sur rounded by his waiting horde, and yet they seemed so wholly unafraid. Slid ing his riding boot forward on the smooth floor, Jito moved a pace nearer. The memory of this American, and ' of the night that he had spent out on ?the desert with Adela, the memory ot ...

Esperance Munici pality YEAR'S ACTIVITIES REVIEWED. ? - SATISFACTORY PROGRESS . ? - MAINTAINED At. the April meeting of the Es perance Municipal Council, Warden ,E.' Burgess said the municipal year that ended that day had' been one of unusual stress owing to the extra ordinary expenditure undertaken as well as the usual commitments.

Port Huon A BUSY WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
Port Huon A BUSY WEEK. The busiest week Port Huon has yet experienced ended with the _ de parture of the Zealandia last Friday for Sydney, the -vessel having lifted 13,(100 cases for the mainland ports. In itself that was a light shipment, but earlier in the week two steamers were loading simultaneously at the wharf — an overseas tessel loaded on the western side of the pier 36,000 cases, while the Ngatoro, on the eastern side, loaded- 13,000 cases for Brisbane. When these two vessels departed they were followed by the s.s. Pakeha, which lifted 26,000. cases, making a total of 88,000 cases that passed over the wharf in, the period. The action of the wharf committee in providing for the: ever growing traffic on Port Huon wharf is greatly appreciated! by officials and others engaged in the fruit trade, and .the hope is expressed that success will attend the efforts now being made to have an abundant water supply avail able at the wharf, so that overseas steamers may be able to obtain ...

Fruit Carriage POSSIBILITIES OF CARBON MONOXIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
Fruit Carriage POSSIBILITIES OF CARBON ,. . MONOXIDE. Reports are being received from England to the \ effect that fruit stored in ani atmosphere of carbon monoxide (a gas composed of equal parts of carbon and oxygen) has re mained fresh over a period of sev eral months. The information is of immense interest to apple growers and1 storage companies. The experi ments may not be exhaustive enough, to make a definite statement on, but they are being continued- in such a scale that evidence should be avail able within a year. Commenting on the report Mr Neil -Campbell, Minister for Agriculture, said: that apart from the matter of, high transport costs, the carriage of :fruit in cool chambers or in ships' holds was probably the greatest pro blem of the fruit industry. He could not offer any comment upon the value of the carbon monoxide treat ment, and no doubt further trials would be watched with great interest by those connected with the industry, because the losses due to faulty car ri...
Correspondence A STACK OF TIMBER. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934
Correspondence A STACK OF TIMBER. To the Editor. 'Sir, — Might I inquire by whose authority a quantity of timber was stacked on the Settlement Road lead ing to Southport? There is a notice attached' to the stack warning any persons interfering with it in any way that they would be dealt with. The absurdity of the business is that those who put the timber there should have realised that it is useless for commercial purposes, as it was taken from- sodden swamp gums that never saw the sun. I am wondering what it is proposed to do with the: timber. — Yours, etc., - . P. HANKIN.
