FLYING OFFICER With Broken Neck RESULT OF DUNTROON SMASH [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
IFLYING OFFICER &nbsp; With Broken Neck RESULT OF DUNTROON SMASH &nbsp; The injuries sustained by Fllght Lieut. Leslie W. Sutherland when his single-seater fighting plane crashed at the IR.M.C., Duntroon, recently have &nbsp; proved to be more serious that had been anticipated after the accident. He is now in the Prince Alfred Hos- pital (Sydney) suffering from a broken neck. The forced landing, when the plane was but 50 feet from the ground, threw his out of the pilot's seat, and frac- tured the first two vertabrae of his spine. Sutherland, however, has failed to do all the things which usually happens to a man with a broken neck. He did not lose consciousness, and shows no sign of paralysis. Luck- ily he kept his hesd in a fixed position, instinctively, which helped the dam- aged neck joints to start knitting to- gether at once. Sutherland is bearing his pain phil- osophically. "It was a stroke of won- derful luck that I escaped as I did, &nbsp; but...

SCHOOL SWIMMING SUMMER CLASSES [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
SCHOOL SWIMMING SUMMER CLASSES In order that the Department of &nbsp; &nbsp; Education can finalise arrangements in connection with the summer swimming classes, it will be necessary to have the names of all pupils participating, before the schools break up on De- cember 17. Classes will be held for a period of ten days, commencing on January 3. Since the inauguration of the scheme by the N.S.W. Department of Educa- tion some ten years ago, more than 60,000 children have received instruc- tions, and 88 per cent, who attended at least three sessions learned to swim distances varying from 10 yards to a quarter of a mile. Some time ago, Mr. Harold Hard- &nbsp; wick, the Department's chief Instruc- tor, visited Queanbeyan to make neces- sary arrangements. The opportunity offered to the children to learn to swim and so protect their own lives, occurs only once annually, and parents should require little or no urging to avail themselves of the opportunity. Among the...

GAS-PROOF LIZARD [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
GAS-PROOF LIZARD If our soldiers had been as Immuna to noxious gas as the jew lizard, one of the death-dealing devices in the Great War would have failed. A Kurrajong (N.S.W.) orange-grower, after envelop- ing a tree with a fumigation tent re- cently, discovered a large jew lizard, resting on a limb half-way up the tree, and left him undisturbed. After weighting the tent flap with soil, save at the entry space, the sulphuric acid and water, in the ratio of one to three, were ' poured into the porcelain re- ceptacle used, and, the cyanide having been added, the orchardlst made ft prompt exit, sodded the rest of the tent ,and waited 45 minutes before hauling off the tent, when he wai amascd to sec the lizard hop down, ap- parently none the worse for its experi- ence.
CIRCULATING TROUT [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
CIRCULATING TROUT Three years ago some thousands of trout eggs were sent from Scotland to New Zealand. The fish bred from these grew to a huge size, averaging between four and Uve pounds, and some o£ the eggs ',of these monsters have been sent to Scotland in the hope that a bigger breed than the original native one will result. If the experiment comes, off, and moro eggs are sent to New Zealand, and so on, one trembles to think what the final trout will be like. He may even become a menace to the angler, or end by blocking up the rivers in which he bred. Nevertheless, I am inclined to think that this scheme for cheating na- ture into excesses will not como off. New Zealand waters have probably dono their best.

JAPANESE POLICY CHANGED Turning Emigration Tide [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
JAPANESE POUCY CHANGED Turning Emigration Tide An announcement of great importance concerning Japan's emigration policy - ?was made recently by a member of the Foreign Office. Japan, he said, had reversed her en- tire emigration ' policy after discovering j the futility and folly of her previous efforts to send out her population whers It was not wanted, i He declared that henceforth Japan Intended to colonise Hokkiado, Formosa, and her other possessions, but did not intend to send emigrants to Australia, Canada, or other countries, realising that her previous policy had caused much trouble and ill-feeling. Her policy now was to increase trade with other countries, especially those in the South Pacific, encouraging industrial Arms and manufactures!- to concentrate on lowering costs and improving quality and building up huge exports. The Bill outlining the programme, for emigration to Hokkiado will be present- ed to the Diet during the coming ses- sion,
