THE STRAND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
THE STRAND. In 'Morniiig Glory,' the manage ment of the Strand Theatre offer a real Christmas treat, for there is no doubt that this R.K.O. pictuie is one of the most outstanding of the year. Katharine Hepburn as the star dis plays a talent that is as profoundly as iv is liiuviiig. jlici uiutjuu jo a delight after the crude and flat voices that have been heard so often since sound came to the screen. Her gestures, her lovely and poignant beauty, and her deftness in handling some of the most taxing scenes to be found in any scenario, mark her as- an actress quite unlike any other young girl who has gone to Holly wood and iwade a name, for herself. 'Morning Glory' commences this Saturday, and will be . shown throughout Christmas week. There is a remarkably fine supporting pro gramme, in keeping with the main feature. . ? ; . ; ' ' : ; : ?

At the Theatres THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
At the Theatres THE PRINCE. The secret of many a child's suc cess on the stage is . revealed in 'Stage Mother,' drama of theatrical life recently filmed by the M-G-M studios, which opens on Saturday at the Prince Theatre. Adapted from an original story by Bradford' Ropes, author o± '452nd1 street,' the - picture deals with a little known, side- of the | theatre — the intense ambition that ( causes 'stage ? mothers' to drive their children to success. The heart breaks and laughs that are en countered' by the youngsters being 'herded' on their way is brought! vividly to the screen. Alice Brady scores even a greater triumph than in 'When Ladies Meet' in her por trayal as the ambitious mother who will stop at nothing to further the career of her daughter. She is sen sational in pathos and comedy alike. Matireen O'Sullivan^has the best role of her screen career, while Franchot Tone and Philip Holmes also give outstanding performances.

DROUGHT IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
. DROUGHT IN SOUTH AFRICA. ' A press message from South Africa contains appalling details of the- effects of drought in that coun try. It states: — 'The South African Government is feeding 250,000 people, half the live stock in some districts, have perished, and one es timate places the loss of sheen alone at 10,000,000. This is what the grip of drought has done for the Union already, and1 ' unfortunately it still tightens. A Cabinet Minister con fessed the other day that unless there is an early and heavy fall of rain the Government can do nothing- more, and the.- fate of. the . agricultural community will have' to rest in the hands' of Providence. A few show ers- along - the ' eastern ' side of the - country have given a little local re lief, but the bulk of South Africa is being burnt up by the scorching sun.
VICTORIAN CROP CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
VICTORIAN CROP CONDITIONS. Codlin moth and' black spot are reported to be more in evidence in most Victorian orchards this season than usual. Growers, however, are vigorously combating the pests, and it is hoped that fairly clean crops will be gathered. The auantitv will be - considerably below that of last year, which will most be reflected in the quantity available for the overseas markets. Harcourt (Vic.) fruitgrowers have entered a vigorous protest against the Federal Government's decision to re strict assistance- from the £125,000 voted' to apple and pear growers to orchards in necessitous circum stances. They are incensed at the Government's action, and consider that it was pre-arranged.

Grass Grubs HUON PASTURES INUNDATED. - An extraordinary visitation of grass grubs has occurred in many parts of the Huon, the, areas most affected being between Dover and Southport, but Wattle Grove, Geeveston, and odd patches be tween Castle Forbes and Franklin 1 ? ? -1 ? 1 I ? il. ? ? 1. nave aiou ueen atuicKeu oy tne- pesi. So far the results have not been very harmful, but odd- pastures have been rendered useless for cattle, as the grass has been completely destroyed. In some places the insects have made their present most undesirable, as they invade ? shops and houses in thousands. The lone snell of drv 'i weather is said to have been respon sible for hte rapid increase of the grubs. A heavy downpour of rain would probably check their further advance.
