The Recorder Published Dally. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1919. GARDENING FOR PORT PIRIE. [Newspaper Article] — Recorder — 28 February 1919

Published Dally. FRIDAY,"FEBRUARY- 28, 191!). GAStDENSNG FOR PORT P6RJSL Strangers coming from abroad to South Australia are often unfavorably impressed with the scantiness of the vegetation. This is a State of treeless plains and a few well-wooded spots. Most of'the plains are rich enough in soil to grow anything that fits the climate. Many of the hills are emin ently suited for various kinds of horti culture and sylviculture. The grow ing .of-■wheat- and vines has been highly developed. The production of timber, of fruit, and of shrubs and flowers in a greater or lesser degree, has been neglected. Timber is dear in every part of the State, yet South Australia will. grow trees ■ of the finest speoics and; qualities. Furniture making and joinery has reached the status of an art in some factories, yet the supplies of raw material have to be drawn ■mostly from outside the State. "In Europe and America it is regarded as essential to the welfare of a country that at least twenty live pe...

THE 'FLU AND UNEMPLOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Recorder — 28 February 1919

THE 'FLU AND UNEMPLOYMENT. According to stalcnicnls. 'if 'rcspou- • Bible' ogicials, the. influenza outbreak' is ■mainly responsible'for the large in crease in the numbers of soldiers out of work in Victoria. At the beginning of last week . there were over 1000 men registered on the books of flic Victorian Repatriation .office. and there will be more when the figures are made Hp to-day. Speaking on the matter on .Satur day. an official said the closing of the theatres and picture shows and the prohibition of racing had thrown a iarge number of returned soldiers out of work. On losing their employment the men had registered at the depart ment. - • While such-may be the ease, it is becoming increasingly evident that the absorption of the masses of fit men ; who -will be returning shortly will create a problem unless some, largo 'works are put in hand immediately. It i is considered that the coming winter ! will be an exceptionally bad one as regards unemployment.
