RECORD SEED SOWING FROM AIR BEING CARRIED OUT AT YASS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 29 June 1951
§^-m- SEED SO WING C&RRIED OUT AT YASS The largest aerial seed-sowing operation yet per formed in Australia has been in progress during the past week at Mr. W. J. Merriman's property, 'Merry- vffle,' Yass. Mr. Merriman is having more than 14 tons of sub terranean clover seed sown over 8,000 acres. , It was estimated the oper ations would take only a little ^over a week to com plete, provided there was suitable flying weather. This operation is an object lesson oil what wodern meth ods can do to increase pro duction by overcoming man power shortages. Some of the clover seed is being sown in areas where it would be impossible to use machinery of any kind. Many graziers consider that a man can only broad cast seed by hand over 8 acres a day. Therefore, to sow 8,000 acres by hand would take 1,000 man days. ' Now this operation can be carried out in a little over a week by one man in one small aircraft. With aircraft it has been proved that the seed can he sown with mathematical ...
HEAVY SALES TAX ON WAR MEDALS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 29 June 1951
HEAVY SALES TAX ON WAR MEDALS Because the Federal Gov ernment classifies them as plated ware, there is a 33 1/3 per cent, sales tax on Service miniature medals. The R.S.L. protested against the tax on these medals, and also against their reported clas sification as 'imitation jewell ery.' The Federal Treasurer, in re ply, has intimated that the med als are not classed as imitation jewellery for sale tax . purposes. 'The Taxation Department has, however, ascertained upon inquiry that these medals are . made of a base metal and arej finally subjected to a plating process in gold and silver,' adds the Treasurer. 'In these circumstances the Department is obliged 'to classi fy the goods as plated ware, which is subject to tax at the rate of 33 1/3 per cent.'

Mr. Renshaw said that New stead North was one of the es tates, to which both he and his predecessor (Mr. Sheahan) had frequently referred, in which the owners had used every de vice possible to delay and pro long negotiations. It was one of the first pro perties decided as suitable for soldier settlement and negotia tions commenced with the own ers as far back at February, 1.946, when the owners asked £5 an acre. An extract from a letter from Mr. W. R. Bucknell, dated May 20, 1949, read: 'If you will now offer this (£5/3/6) I undertake to recom mend -its acceptance to our Board.'

CRANBURY BRANCH DID NOT KNOW "Wool Tax Will Help The Small Man," Claims Cowra Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 29 June 1951
CRANBURY BRANCH DID NOT KNOW 'Wool Tax WB Help The Small Man,' Claims Cowra Farmer The executive of the F. and S. Association vigor ously opposed the Wool Sales Deduction tax» even sending a delegation to Can berra to protest against it. However, because the execu tive didn't publicise this fact, the Cratibury branch of the F. and S. thought that the executive had supported it. At the Cowra District Coun cil of the Association, the Cran bury branch submitted the fol lowing motion: 'That the execu tive, in supporting the wool sal* es deduction tax, acted against the interests of farmers,' Mr. Roy Langfield, of Moron gla, a member of the F. and S. Executive, stated that the reso lution was wrong. The execu tive had not supported the wool sales deduction tax. 'We fought hard to have the small man, whose wool cheque was less than £1,000, exempted.' he said. 'We never heard anything about that,' said Mr. S. H. Nash, of Cranbury, who had moved the resolution. 'The northern Council sup por...

NO CHARGE FOR [?] DIRECTORIES [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 29 June 1951
itWS FOR ?HHcroiaEs T^jlJKoinenting this week on a Suggestion made recently that fchfi ifiost Office should make a Substantial charge for telephone directories, the Postmaster General (Hon. H. L. Anthony) said that if this were done, sub scribers could hardly be com pelled to make the purchase and some would undoubtedly jail to do so, in using obolete directer ies, would fail and obtain wrong numbers. These subscribers would then be obliged to make additional calls and to refer more frequently to the 'Inform- ation' service for which, in con sequence, a larger staff would be required. Thus a restricted distribution of up-to-date tele phone directories could result in a good deal of confusion and unsatisfactory service. Owing to the extensive de velopment of the telephone ser vice which is now taking place throughout the Commonwealth and the alteration of many sub scribers' numbers to enable large-scale re-arrangements of exchange networks to be made, it is essential for old telephon...
THE GARDEN. HOW TO MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 29 June 1951
IBE GARDEN [?] peratureB, winter Tains, and frosts make conditions un suitable for vigorous growths at least above ground. Especially is this the case in c Id, inland places; only in the warm, coastal regions can people expect much in the way of colour during that time of year when King Winter reigns supreme. Such good natured plants as Iceland poppies, sweet peas, stocks. English marigolds, prim ulas and others are already giving us a foretaste of what we can expect as the plants be come stronger, which they, will do if they were planted early enough to get their roots well down into the warmer layers of soil. Those planted more re cently will probably mark time above ground, but will make good roots that can build up sturdy plants to flower in early spring and from then onwards. Conditions are now favour able for digging and trenching. Although very few people now-a-days take the trouble to trench their land, much can be said in favour of this rather laborious class of work, becau...

Mr. Sheahan said the first ob jective of the Bill was to pen alise railway employees who were under the influence of in toxicating liquor or any drug while on duty. The Transport Act had been similarly amended in respect .of tramway and road transport employees. 'I need hardly point out,' Mr. Sheahan told Parliament, 'the consequences that could follow if a person in charge of a rail way train or signalling apparat us were under the influence of liquor to 'such an extent that his judgment .was impaired.' Supporting his claim that the Government Railways ; Act should be amended as far as theft and1 pilfering was concern ed, Mr. Sheahan said that in the years ended June 30, 1948, 1949 and 1950, claims on the Railway Department for thefts am...
