BOOROWA P. and €. Admission Price To Be Increased The Secretary -Mr. F. X. O'Donneil) reported to the P. and C Association at its meeting on Tuesday night that r he had received 'con- firmation of his engagement of Southwell's orchestra for the P. and C. Ball to he held on 21st September. *tihis* led to a discussion of the vast all--round increase in the cost of running such func tions, and members were unan imous in their opinion that the admission. fee charged in prev ious years would not allow of a reasonable profit. Hence, after some deliberation it was decided^ to raise the prices to 8/- ana 6/-. Other decisions were that ar rangements should be made to hire the Catholic Youth Club's amplifying unit for the Ball, and that a Pluvius Insurance for £50 coverage should be taken between 7 and 9 p.m. All other details are to be arranged at the. next meeting.

MORE SAWMILL FOR BOOROWA Should Be Granted To Anyone Prepared To Cut Timber Chamber Of Commerce's Claim At the Boorowa Chamber of Commerce meeting on Monday night last members deplored strongly the diffic ulty of procuring any kind of timber for building or re - pairs, and declared that local mills should be operating to ' help meet the demand. Two licences have been grant ed for local milling, it was stat ed, but these are not operating at anything like capacity. Yet the Government will not grant new licences because it considers two sufficient for the area. If these two existing licence holders cannot help towards re moving the shortage, then fur ther licences should be issued to people prepared to perform this valuable public service.

THE EDITOR SAYS : Need For Large Attendance [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 18 July 1951
? ? »»»»»w»«'WtWWWWi«WW«» [HE EDITOR SAYS : Need For Larae Attendance Two factors render wide representative attendance at tbe annual meeting of the Boorowa P.A. and H. Association to be held at the Court House Hotel to-morrow (Saturday) after noon, at 3 o'clock, absolutely essential. First there is the de pressing fact that our show is slipping badly, both in public esteem and financially. The nett loss of £232/3/4 for the 1951 Jubilee Show cannot be permitted to be duplicated next year or the whole business mil have to be wound up. Next, there is the fact that the new committee is to be elected, and it is the duty of all civic-minded members of the public to attend and ensure that the district is represented by the most capable men our district can provide. If we are not prepared to show sufficient interest to attend, then we do not deserve to receive the best of which our district is capable. Even if we consider the Show unnecessary, and would prefer to see, the project . discont...

Affected areas have the ap pearance of being cultivated, the grub working by night and hi bernating in the soil, at a depth of about 4 inches, during the day. FERTILIEZR STILL BEING SLOWLY ...
