Cultivation of Peanuts ? *«. ? Opportunity in the District METHODS OUTLINED Although considered a crop for tropi cal countries and latitudes, the peanut 1 will thrive. under a wide range of climatic conditions, in fact, the world's crops are produced in sub-tropical zones. While in the cooler parts of this State it would succeed only in the teuimuer, in me tropical portions it may be grown at any period where a suffi ciency of rain falls. Ideal climatic conditions would be an early spring, comparatively high temperature, a moderate rainfall, plenty of sunshine, and a dry autumn or harvesting period so that a .minimum of loss would be occasioned through weathering and dis coloration of the .shells. The crop is very susceptible to frost, and a climate with a freedom from frost for at least five months of the year is necessary.

The Geraldton Guardian TUESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1948 AIDING GREEK DEFENCE [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 13 January 1948

([He {SentttfoiK&tutrtiaft TUESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1948 AIDING GREEK DEFENCE The action of the Greek Communist rebel leader (General Markos) in form ing a rebel government in northern Greece has not been followed by any early military success of note, as his attack upon Konitza a town of some strategic importance, has been foiled. though the rebels remain in Greek ter ritory, not much beyond gun-range of the town. One notable result of recent political and military activity by the insurgents, however, has been to com mit both the United States and Britain to direct material support for the status quo in Greece, apparently to any extent that the situation may demand. Recent reports indicate that the original advance of £45,000,000 in Aus tralian currency made by the United States to the Greek Government speci iically for defence purposes having been exhausted, Washington already has agreed to the Greeks transferring to the defence account £A7,000,000 of the loan earmarked for re...
