WELL-MATCHED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

WELL-MATCHED. They had lunched extremely well in the club house, and then went out for a second round of golf. On the first tee one missed the ball completely. Then his opponent essayed to drive and he, too, missed. 'Well,' said the first golfer, gravely, 'I can shee it's going to be a ding-dong struggle.' ''She broke him. off smoking^ so that he could save money.'- 'And did he save money?' ; He. got so interested .in sav ing money 'that he broke' off their ' en- gagement so that lie could ?' save still more.'' !

SCIENCE AND THE WHEAT FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

SCIENCE AND THE WHEAT FIELD. In the great wheat-growing areas of New South Wales, this year covering 4,837,900 acres, it is interesting to note the changes in popularity of seed varieties. The last tabulation was ^ 1929-30. In that year the order of pre ference in regard to the first six varieties was: — Waratah, Federation, Yandilla King, Turvey, Canberra and ' Nabawa. t„ il. ? ? 1 O O 0,0 9 in me vaneueo ouwu m ow t son, Nabawa takes first place. Wara- . : tah follows, Yandilla King is third. Free Gallipoli, Waratah, Federation, Marslially's, Bobin, Penny, Ford, Ranee, Bend, Canberra, Union, Carra wa, Riverina, Pusa, Aussie, Wandilla, Major, Nizam, diminish into the les ser figures. Federation wheat, named after the ' constitution of the Australian Com- ? monwealth, produced under the ^ex periments of Farrar, an Oxford gra duate in science, was the pioneer o£ all these branches of the parent stock.

USE YOUR SPARE TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

USE YOUR SPARE TIME. It has been shrewdly remarked that a man's employment of his spare time determines his success or failure in life. That may be an extreme state ment; industry and application in any one's chosen work during the hours that it definitely requires should en surp him n fznr mAacnro c\f cuppoqc But it is unquestionably true that special distinction is for those who do not too scrupulously limit themselves to the average working day. The pur suit in leisure hours of studies that are in some way allied to a man's daily occupation.' is certain to bear fruit. Even the pursuit of less vitally re lated studies is often surprisingly im portant in shaping a career. In the lives of many men — especially men without hobbies — there are daily un profitable periods when they sit. with vacant minds. They would read a book if a book of just the right sort — a detective story for example — were at hand; but their library contains no thing new and appealing, only classic authors, Di...

HINTS FOR THE DEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

HINTS FOR THE DEAF. Most people who are deaf suffer more from the .weakness than their friends usually realise. The full ex tent of their disability is, as a rule, disguised by the assistance offered to them by their sight, but if the speaker turn his face away, in all probability the words he utters cannot be inter preted at all. .

SAVED BY A TRIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

SAVED BY A TRIFLE. I am a soldier employed as a ser geants' mess Tyaiter. It is ,a part of my duty to go round the mess to see that all doors are securely locked after lights out. one night recently, as I was going round, I accidentally dropped my torch, breaking the glass. A native em ployed in the mess was standing near, and I gave it to him, saying it was of no use to me. He thanked (me and went to the back of the mess to get his cycle. He switched on. the torch as he was about to take the cycle, and there, curled round the cross-bar, was a cobra with its head resting on the saddle. We soon had it killed. I think that the glass breaking in' the tprch cer tainly saved, the native boy's life. This truly happened.— R. R.

THE SILENCE OF DEAN MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

THE SILENCE OF DEAN MAITLAND. Australia's latest production, 'The Silence of Dean Maitland,' which comes to the Strand Theatre on Sat urday week, is easily the best talking picture Australia ? has produced. The first impression which audiences will gain of the film is the immense ad vance which it 'marks on earlier cine sound productions. Not a film com pany in the world could better the mechanical excellence of this film. Furthermore, the. acting at last is of a . standard which can challenge Mr Jo'hn Longden, the English actor, appearing' in the Australian picture, 'The Silence of Dean Maitland.' Serious examination. In John Long den the Cinesound Company has ob tained a genuine star. His per formance calls for none of the usual condonation, because it takes place in an Australian studio. On the con trary, as a piece of sustained dra matic acting, it would dignify any picture made in England or America. The natural ending occurs when the camera sweeps away from the dying den, to r...

THE STRAND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

THE STRAND. Bancroft's latest picture, 'Blood Money,' a. 20th century production,: released through United Artists, and coming to the Strand Theatre on Sat urday, reveals him again in situations which call for that devastating laugh. The laughs are more spine-tingling than ever this time, because the gang-war scenes in 'Blood Money give Bancroft an unparalleled op portunity to unloosen his unique blood-and-iron personality. 'Blood Money' is a highly dramatic romance of society and the underworld, ex posing the bail-bond racket ana pro viding a lot of thrills. Frances Dee plays opposite Bancroft. Unreeling their endless humorous repartee against unusual bank grounds, ranging from a super latively ultra-chic beauty saloon to the he-man atmosphere of the auto race tracks, is a striking feature of 'Hips, Hips, Hooray,' Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey's latest comedy, featuring Ruth Etting, Thelma Todd and Dorothy Lee. This will be the supporting feature.

MODERN MISSES PLEASE NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934

MODERN MISSES PLEASE NOTE. In my grandmother's day, it was the custom to follow a strict routine throughout each week as regards one's household duties. Monday was set apart for putting Sunday clothes away and turning out the parlor after its Sunday occupation. . Tuesday was washing day, ana so on. My mother was a dutiful daughter, and in her home followed grand mother's plan to the letter. Not so, however, did her younger sister.- She . was a 'modern' of her day, and on her marriage she planned to have her wash day on Mondays. Grandmother heard of this, and arrived one Monday morning in a great rage. She raked out the fire and took the clothes from the boiler, saying: 'I'll teach thee to wash on a Monday, my lass!' and as long as she lived she saw to it that Tuesday was wash-day in the homes of her daughters. — E.H. ..

'I have observed signs of this bet terment for some time,' said a female listener, 'in my own home.' 'Your own home? How sp?' came tne query, ? 'Well, you see,' was the response, 'my husband is beginning to remove his bills from their envelopes.' He showed every promise at school except that he always muddled his past participles. After saying 'I have wrote,' the master explained to him how wrong it was, and told him to write 'I have written' 100 times. The lines were left on the master'3 desk with the note: 'I have wrote 'I . have written' 100 times, as you told me; and now I have went home.'
