The Public Library (To the Editor of "The Recorder.") [Newspaper Article] — Recorder — 26 February 1919
The Public Library (To the Editor of "The Recorder.") Sir,— 1 was surprised , to note in your paper recently that the number qf sub scribers to the public library was slightly over 400, and had not increas ed appreciably during the last few years. If the committee were to take more interest they could considerably increase the members' roll, and in stead of meeting once a month at 5 p.m. and hurrying through the busin ess in order to be in time for dinner, they should hold meetings fortnightly at 8 p.m. The advantages of member ship 'should be made known more wide ly. The library contains all the best works of fiction by the most popular authors and all .classics of the com munity are catered for. Numbers of men are in boarding houses and scarce ly know how to utilise tlicir spare time, and probably do not know that such a place exists. During the recent spell of iiot weather the most com fortable place in Pirie was the large reading-room upstairs, with a lovely breeze from the elec...
Children's Playground FINANCIAL WORRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Recorder — 26 February 1919
Children's Playgroiind FINANCIAL WORRIES. Financial problems appear to be dis-: lurking- the minds of members of Hie playground committee. The expendi ture is steadily mounting up. and there are only limited sources of income. At Monday night's - meeting the " Mayor (Mr. A. B. Forgan) presiding, the sec retary (Mr. E. E.

GOLFER'S UNIQUE RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Recorder — 26 February 1919
GOLFER'S UNIQUE RECORD. Age is less of a bar in golf than in any other active sport, but Walter J. Travis, the American golfer, is a shining example of what can be ac complished by a man after he has pas sed an age when the down grade as an athlete begins.. If the story of Walter J. Travis was not backed up by official records, it would not be credited. As' it stands, it is the tale of the greatest individual' achievement in the history of sport; the tale of an impossible accomplish ment as such things go; the record of a man who did what no one has ever done before or will ever do again, so far as one may read the future state. Travis took up golf for the first time at the age of thirty-six. In three years he " won the national champion ship for the-first time. Four years bei yond that lie was. the amateur cham pion of. Great Britain—the first and only American who ever earned that high honor. And nineteen years after he took up the game for the first time, "lie won- his last tourn...

^ccoi^ct! Published Daily. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1919. RAILWAY METHODS. In common with many other parts of the State, Port. Pirie'suffers, severe ly from the ..slipshod';plans" on which the railway services were established. Almost every district could tell, tales of improperly selected routes, of ex pensive methods, and of unsatisfac tory time-tables. Most foolish and expensive of all the initial mistakes was the adoption of three different .gauges. The present generation is blameless for the original folly, but certainly it cannot be. acquitted of a charge. of perpetuating and adding to the evil. Two consequences of pri mary importance have followed on the three gauge foolishness. There is the cost of transferring goods and pas sengers from one gauge to the other. And there is the perplexity that as sails (he authorities on whom 'is'sad dled the embarrassing responsibility of deciding What gauge and system should be adopted in the construction of new lines. Minor peculiarities a...

Proud no doubt, of the part played by British seamen in the; grea t conflict just past, the old man must liave felt constrained' to dp honor to the uniform of Jack Tar, in which lie sallied forth. No warning had been given lo 'thc civic or "(her authorities and consequently his welconVc was not marked, by officialdom, but his re ception was none the less for that.

Wheat Handling GROWERS WANT POOLING SYSTEW. Australian wdieatgrowers possess a bald ambition, namely, that, as the growers of the wheat crop'; they should handle and market it themselves! Thus a big co-operative schemc :is project ed. The scheme is the outcome of the formation of wheat pools since the outbreak of the war. Wlien Mr. Hughes pooled the Wheat crop of Aus tralia , -v lie unquestionably also oyer-; came the initial and greatest obstacle to any future scheme of co-operation. To-day (iie majority of growers sup port the -principle of pooling-, while criticising the administration... They would like to run the business' them selves. . - Any such consummationwill not be achieved without ci; strenuous fight. There are big and wealthy inte.rests tiiat will not allow the wheat trade -of Australia to slip out of their hands if they can help it.; The first round of the tight is in progress—at least the preliminary sparring has begun. The trade—especially in Victoria—is urg ing. th...
