Cole held up some pro mising attacks by Kermandie, but eventually Eyles goaled for the visi tors, followed by a series of points from Warren and Geeves. Cannon and Hooper transferred play to the other end, for G. Page to even the score. Some fine centre play fol lowed, J.

Bruising of Fruit CARELESSNESS IN PICKING AND PACKING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 10 May 1934
Bruising of Fruit . . ? — ^ ? CARELESSNESS IN PICKING AND PACKING. . The Chief Horticulturist (Mr P. H. 'Thomas) ? directs the attention of growers to the' amount of bruising that is in evidence among consign ments of apples submitted for export. During the last week the contra ventions from this cause have been too prevalent, and in a number of instances good quality fruit has ar rived at the wharf in a seriously damaged condition. While a certain amount of bruising may be due to conditions of transport, an investiga tion of the treatment to which fruit is subjected during the picking, sizing and packing reveals that in/many cases the injury is due to a lack of supervision on the part of the grower, or carelessness of the opera tors. ? : Matured fruit is very easily bruised, and late varieties such as Stuvmer Pippin, Scarlet, French Crab, and Crofton, need careful handling during picking and packing if this is to be obviated. The opinion has been expressed that bruising is not impo...

KING'S CUP RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 10 May 1934
KING'S CUP RACE. After the disastrous experience of 1927, when four of the' six crews that started for the King's Cup Race on the Derwent River, Hobart, were deprived of any chance they might have had of winning the great honor through their boats being swamped by the rough water, it was hoped that 1-V1A TocmoTiioii 'Rnwino* A ccnpiat.inn would take every possible precaution against such a happening again. It was pointed out to the members of this body, who have the- authoi*ity to choose the course and an alternative one, that such a classic race — it is the greatest race of its kind in the world — could be rowed on the Huon with practically no risk of either the final fortnight's training or the race itself being adversely affected by weather conditions, but so obsessed were they with the conviction that the race should be rowed at the capital city, whether the conditions would'.be fav orable or not to the contestants, that they went to the extent of assuring those members, of the ...
