DOUBLE MOTORING FATALITY AT WAIKERIE Untimely Passing of Leading Stoker Lex Law (R.A.N.) YOUNG GIRL ALSO VICTIM OF CRASH Waikerie, March 8. The community was profoundly shocked on Saturday morning when it became known that Leading Stoker Lex Law (RAN) and Miss Nita Searle had been, killed as the result of a motor accident. The two deceased were passengers in a car driven by ACI Bruce Allen, and were returning to Waikerie after attending a ball at Bar mera. Lex Law returned only a few months ago after two-and a-half years' service overseas. The funerals took place on Sunday afternoon when a particularly large crowd paid their last respects to the two young people. The driver, Bruce Allen, who sus- ' tained concussion, shock and scalp wounds, had sufficiently recovered to day to make a statement. It appears that Lex Law and Nita Searle were passengers in the rear seat of the car; when about three miles ; from Waikerie Allen noticed an object J Dii the road which might have been a stum...

NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES "A Word in Season" on the Cold Dip [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 March 1943

NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES "A Word in Season'' on the Cold Dip Judging by the number of inquiries that have come in regarding the cold dip 1 presume that ,a great many growers are using it for the first time. Some are worried about the appearance of the fruit soon after leavinp the dip because of the difference between this and tha modified dip, and others are concerned about the removal of green tinge. Many growers have been, scared to use the colc( dip by reason of the work involved to remove the green tinge. A word in season to the novice in this regard maybe helpful." In the first place the fruit must on no account be taken off the rack until it Is quite dry and if the green is very deep seated it is a mistake to put it straight on sisalcraft as this only ag gravates the matter and allows the odour to be more or less fixed by reason of the fact that, the fruit becomes case hardened and cannot be removed by heat alone. It takes heat plus mois ture tp remove green tinge if it is a...

SELF-SOWN WHEAT Statement by Chairman Of Board Sir Clive McPherson (chairman of the Wheat Industry Stabilization Board) has issued the following state ment in respect to wheat harvested from self-sown crops during the past season: "In the 1942-43 season, because of the peculiar climatic conditions, there has been more self-sown wheat than usual in some areas. The existence of this wheat has a bearing on the licensed acreages for the year and the Wheat Industry Stabilization Board has had to consider how it should be dealt with. The decisions of the Board are as follows:— *'<1) "Where the self-sown acreage, and the licensed acreage for 1942 com bined, do not exceed the grower's basic acreage, the wheat may be mar keted and will qualify for payment under the quota scheme. "(2) Where the combined acreages exceed the basic acreage, any excess self-sown wheat will be placed in the! same category as other excess wheat, any payment for which will be a mat ter for future decision...

LEXIAS URGENTLY NEEDED A.D.F.A. Appeal To Growers [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 March 1943

LEXIAS URGENTLY [NEEDED A.D.F.A. Appeal To Growers "A sincere appeal is made Id" the in dustry to produce the greatest possible tonnage of lexias which are" urgently required to maintain the valuable mark et we have been able to build up," states the most recent issue of the "Dried Fruit News'". There are sev eral reasons why every grower should make every effort, even though it means making a hard day harder in these difficult times," continues the article. "In South Australia the line of least resistance appears to offer through the distillery and an appeal has been made to growers there to retrain from this easy way, having regard to labour, shortage, and loyally supply legitimate industry requirements. It would seem wrong when this form of dried fruit is so badly needed for the troops and the Mother Country, that it should be wil fully converted into wine, particularly when the wine growers are having such an anxious time in regard to their types of grapes that cannot be used fo...

BOWLING NOTES By "Yer Must Be Up" [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 March 1943

BOWLING NOTES By "Yer Must Be Up" The question of selecting players for matches sometimes causes much dis satisfaction. The method of selection can best be decided by selectors who know the game from experience. A sole selector stated on one occasion: "I am put in this position to choose the best material, and I don't care whether a man is in the club 10 min utes or 20~years, as long as he is the goods." All bowlers are reminded that their bowls must bear a stamp. Seven years is the allotted span. It Is the duty of the umpire to inspect all bowls. The onus is on the bowlers to watch this matter. It would be very disappoint ing to be told at the last moment at a carnival, that your bowls were disqualified. I was very amused to read about the old bowler, aged 94 years, who did not intend to play in Mr. Rundle's Veterans' day at South Park. All the same he was going to watch the other "lads", "whose ages averaged about 80 years. They say that a wo man is as old, as she looks. A bowler ...

LETTER TO EDITOR Democracy v. Communism To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 11 March 1943

LETTER TO EDITOR Democracy v. Communism To the Editor. Sir,—Replying to the president and secretary of the Renmark Communism Party, why are they so anxious to be under Soviet rule? I would like them to read the' leading articles in Monday's "Advertiser", also anybody else inter ested in Communism. Russia no doubt is doing a good job, protecting her own country, aided by England and USA, but I fail to see how she is fighting for us. Thanks to our own splendid lads and Ameri cans we are driving the Japs back and will continue to do so. After the war let us hope we will enjoy the same "freedom" as before and not be shackled by any "Commun listic Ideals." Yours etc.. J. E. MeCABE. Mindarie.
