DAME RUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 29 June 1951
DAME RUMOR How those snowballs do grow as they roll along! A would-be philosopher once remarked that he'd hate to be a woman. On be ing pressed to explain* he held forth in this strain: .Consider the teeth; when 1 have a small hole in a tooth I explore it with my tongue and the. hole feels much larger than it really it. Thus does the tongue of man exaggerate. When one con siders how much more prone to exaggerate is the tongue of a woman, one can read ily conceive that a tiny hole . in a woman's' tooth most feel like a gaping abyss. With all due respects to the philosopher, he could to-day choose a much more opposite example to illus trate tiie manner in which the might oak of rumor grows from the little acorn, truth. Just take this ex ample from one of our well-known city dailies: 'Some months ago, Edgar Corcoran, half-back for the Boorowa Rugby League team, was driving to a Maher Cup fixture. 'His car side-swiped a ^ truck. His right arm, rest ing on the driving window, was shatter...
"Let Us Have a Bit of Foresight And Progressive Spirit" Cr. R. J. Forster Replies To "Why Boorowa Is Slipping Back." [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 29 June 1951
'Let Us Have a Bit of Foresight And Progressive Spirit' Cr. R. J. Fotster Replies To 'Why Boorowa Is Slipping Back.' Sir, — In your worthy paper of -the 8th June last I noticed where a very brave and go ahead ratepayer, who did not see fit to sign his name to the nvtirlp. had the audacity to call on the Council to 'wake up.' Surely he is the one who should be asked to do so, as he is en deavouring to stop the progress of his town and community. He claims that bad roads are the cause of Boorowa slipping; but I can point out to him other N.S.W. towns 100 per cent, bet ter than Boorowa with far worse ? roads leading to them. He mentions also travelling from Brisbane to Adelaide and back and that he has never seen such disgraceful roads. To this I can only say he must have flown, because since East er I have, travelled nearly z.uuu miles by car in New South Wales and can say one has only to travel outside their own Shire to find worse roads, and not all of them secondary roads either. I...
