British Film Fashion MANY EXPERTS ENGAGED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 10 May 1934
British Film Fashion MANY EXPERTS ENGAGED. Nearly a thousand hours spent in fitting the chorus with dresses for one production alone! And did someone suggest! that British films are carelessly dressed? The dress ing of a film in 1934 is no haphazard affair. Expert stylists, designers, dressmakers are all concentrating imnn the business ? of keenmsr the new British film fashions well on the map. ., - .,';. , ; First. the dress designer, haying read the script and studied the sar torial idiosyncrasies of each player, prepares sketches for the required number of dresses. As many as six designs may be tentatively put for ward for each ensemble, from which one is finally chosen. The decision lies between the designer, the ar tistes, the director of ? the film, the fashion supervisor and the camera man.

Correspondence TRADE CONTACTS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 10 May 1934
Correspondence TRADE CONTACTS. .To the Editor. Sir,; — In a recent statement Mr &:?? M.' Bruce said that restriction of production/ was a doctrine of in tolerable pessimism. \ The London 'Times,' with a remarkable breadth of vision, wrote: — 'For young coun^ tries to acquiesce in the policy of restriction would be to concur in , a sentence condemning them to stagna velopment.' . . In Great Britain, however, the Minister for Agriculture (Major Elliot) naturally champions the home fad'mer. No-one will quarrel with the attitude. It is' said, however, that Major Elliot is the King of Quotas — that he is suffering from 'quotamania,' and many even in his own country are asking whether there is an attempt to carry Great Britain back to .Disraeli's impatient contempt of 'those wretched colo nies.' This naturally is a question with which the Commonwealth : is con cerned. The suggestions of the Premier (Mr Stevens) are, there fore, most apropos. He recently re marked that the present ...

NEW ORCHARD PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 10 May 1934
NEW ORCHARD PLOUGH. The 'Petty' Disc Orchard Strip ping Plough is the result of a life time's practice and study of orchard implements by experienced fruit growers. It. is a great time and labor saver, and eliminates a lot of back-breaking work in cutting out strips between tne trees. One of the cardinal features of the 'Petty' Disc Orchard Stripping Plough is the great facility with which the plough' can be steered in and out between the trees, giving an even, uniform cut. Meanwhile the tractor or horses continue in a straight line clear of the branches. The levers are all placed in a handy position to the driver's seat. The depth of the cut is regulated by a lever operated from the driver's seat. The 'Petty' plough turns easily in snort neaaianas, aim is ieiiicUK»uiy easy to operate. Whether using a tractor or horses, this plough per forms its operation equally well Further particulars may be ob tained from the agents for all Har vey orchard implements, ' Messrs Max Geeves Pty.

FRUITGROWERS' COMPENSATION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 17 May 1934
FRUITGROWERS' COMPENSA TION. To the Editor. ??'? Sir, — About six weeks ago you published a very apt footnote to a statement made by the Director of Agriculture that the cost of produc ing apples was 2s a bushel. You gave details of costs which had been drawn 'up by Mr J. H. Mason, show ing that the costs could not be under 2s 6d per bushel, and I can add from bitter experience that it is only under ..; favorable circumstances that the costs can be kept as low as 2s 6d. Mr Mason's scale is therefore o minimum; but the Directors of Agri culture, who have certainly not got where they are through producing ? apples cheaper than Mr Mason, have asked the Federal Government to N consider those whose returns are 2s per bushel, to be 'financial,' and therefore not entitled to any portion i of the Federal grant. My returns I were a bit less than 2s, but the au thorities apparently think it was 'near enough,' and my application for a portion of the grant has-been turned down. No doubt there a...

Correspondence. STRAYING CATTLE. To the Editor. Sir, — When on a visit to Dover and the surrounding districts I was - surprised at the lack of supervision .. by the police, or the council's in spector, as I was told both these re side at Dover. Evidently the sub urbs are not visited too often, as last week, being one ot a party ol tour motorists, and taking a trip to Glen devie, we were held up by a hnree feeding on the road. These roads are narrow and not a fit place for horses, cattle and motorists to he- at the same time. We got a little further, and there a cow was feeding through the fence on a ?'. neighbour's crop ; here we- were again held up. Sir, this does not exist in other municipalities, why here at Dover? — Yours, etc., TOURIST, ONE OF FOUR.

Huonville Hall SHORTAGE OF REVENUE. INCREASE OF COUNCIL RENT PROPOSED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 17 May 1934
Huonville Hall ? ? ? SHORTAGE OF REVENUE. INCREASE OF COUNCIL RENT PROPOSED. At last Monday's meeting of the Huon Municipal Council, Cr: A. C. Parson said that at a meeting of the Huonville Hall Committee the. pre vious Tuesday evening, it was . re ported that the revenue for- the: year was £40 short of the amount, re quired to meet the annual ?'charges, and it was decided to ask the council to increase their rent for ; the. inspec tor's and clerk's offices from £52 to £78 per annum. The increase, .was only 10s per week, and he thought it was a reasonable rental. , The rate1 for the hall is already 3d, and it would not be fair to the people in the hall area to increase this charge. He had always maintained that the coun cil's rent did not compare favorably with the amount paid- by the PoQice Department, £120 per annum,' .' and moved that the request of the com mittee to increase the rent to £78 be complied with.
