NEW HUON [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 17 May 1934
NEW HUON ' A rare: film of beauty, movement, music and power is a' description that fits the new British Dominions pic tui-e at the New Huon Theatre this Saturday, 'Carnival.'. Most of the superbly lavish scenes are set to music — music that is not deliberate, but a subtle accompaniment to the rapid action of the production. The acting is superb. Matheson Lang, Dorothy- B.ouchier arid Joseph Schild kraut all give their best. Lansr needs no ;eulogy; his wonderful acting is too well known to the world, even though most of his performances have been confined to the English stage. Neither does Joseph Schild kraut,- whose romantic lover roles have endeared him to many feminine hearts. But Miss -Dorothy Bouchier merits special mention. She looks amazingly lovely in 'Carnival,' and her acting, poise and, general appear ance are excellent. 'Chance of a Night Time,' a typical Ralph Lynn comedy, is the supporting feature, in which- Winifred Sholter is co-starred.

Port Huon Wharf WATERSIDE WORKERS COMMENDED. NEED FOR WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 17 May 1934
Port Huon Wharf WATERSIDE WORKERS COM MENDED. NEED FOR WATER SUPPLY. At yesterdays meeting of the Es perance Municipal Council, Warden Burgess said) he had been very pleased at the manner in which the captains of the overseas steamers that called at Port Huon this season had referred to the shipping facilities of the port, and the manner in which the waterside workers handled the fruit. On account of these satisfac tory features it was probable thaj; still more vessels would be allotted to Port Huon next season, but before the port got its full quota it would be necessary to provide an abundant water supply. He had also be.en as sured by the chief stevedore of the overseas steamers that the Port Huon waterside workers' work compared more than favorably with, that of the Hobart waterside workers. He (the Warden) mentioned this because of the complaints that had been made by the agents of the interstate steam ers regarding the manner in which their vessels were loaded at Port Huon. Cr...
