A SYDNEY BROADCASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 April 1926
A SYDNEY BROADCASTER. Some of the programmes sent out by the Sydney broadcasting station 2F0 (Farmers) are being heard far beyond the borders of N.S.W. for which primarily they are intended. Twice recently letters have reached theenmanager of 2FC from a radio en thusiast in Germany stating that he has heard the, Sydney Station. The evidence he submitted however was rather scanty, for the officials of 2FC did not trouble themselves to check his "log." But within the- past few days a radio firm in Sydney has had three communications from listeners in at Germany all stating that they have heard 2FC programmes, and giving particulars of the items to which they listened. .This is interesting,, of course, though nothing particularly to be wondered at. 2FC is one of the ten most powerful stations in the world, and if radio listeners in almost any country chose to go to a little trouble they could pick up the programmes readily. What is more to the point is the fact that residents of every ...

MASTER PICTURE NEWS "Tall Timbers," the new Australian Master Picture production that is due fcr early release tells a thrilling story of life in the great outdoors. Set against the majestic background ' the Australian forest, it contains Zany scenes of picturesque grandeur Ud the story is worked out in a pleasing and effective manner.

(Published by arrangement.) BEWARE OF CRANKS ! [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 April 1926
(Published by arrangement.) BEWARE OF CRANKS ! In a leading article on Prohibition, the "Daily Telegraph" (London) says the only question is whether it should be modified in view of the evils which -it has engendered. Prohibition, we are told, has caused the stoppage of all temperance teaching, and has brought about a disrespect for all law. There could be no graver in dictment than the latter charge, and it is well-founded, for Prohibition has encouraged young people to drink in the spirit of bravado, who other: wise would not have thought of it. The law- is felt to- be-what, indeed, it -is--an outrage on the freedom of the sizbject, and there is no sense of wrong in breaking. it.. "Prohibition may prohibit, but it does not prevent, and there is hardly more difficulty in getting prohibited liquor- in -New York than there is in London, where, at any rate; during closing hours, a real prohibition is - in fact in vogue. Under Prohibition, as 'practised in America liquor is always -to ...

FOOTBALL ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 April 1926
FOOTBALL ITEMS The working bee .on Cantle's Flat last week-end was pi'oductive of much good; a great deal of sand and silt deposited by the flood was re moved, but the big end of the job is still ahead, and it will possibly require several more working bees to complete the job. Owing to next Sunday being Anzac Day no working bee will be held on that day. The matter of lighting the oval in the Park for training purposes is now in the hands of the Warrigals' elec trician. New goal posts will be erected be fore the end of the week. These will be the best that have ever appeared in the local Park and are being erected at the expense of the Warrn gal Club. It is expected that Clarrie Horder, who has been engaged as coach, will arrive on Monday next. The proposal is that two nights ped week will be devoted by him to senior players and one to juniors. If the anticipations of those who have been instrumental in engaging a coach (the Warrigal officials) are realised, it is hoped that the coa...
MOTOR NOTES WHAT IS YOUR CAR WORTH ? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 April 1926
MOTOR NOTES WHAT' IS YOUR CAR WOWRLH? One of the points on which the buyer and seller find it hardest to reach agreement concerns the price to be paid for -the used car -which is to be sold or traded in.' All such matters naturally imply a - ceitain amount of bargaining, but wheni the two parties make their calculations each on a totally different basis from the other, then it indeed becomes difficult even to effect a compromise in the price. We shall accordingly try to pour a little oil on these trou bled waters by outlining some' of the arguments raised by either side -and endeavouring to show where they, are in error. Whether' the car is to be sold to a private - buyer or traded in to the motor firm -in part payment of a new car, it goes without saying that the party wishes to give or allow as low a price as possible. Firms now have more or less cut and dried methods- of reckoning -the amount which they can in safety to them= 1 selves allow on a- car which is traded 1 in, and the...

BETTER RADIO FOR COUNTRY LISTENERS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
SBETTER RADIO ::::: FOR COUNTRY LISTENERS A To residents of the country par ticularly, and to those'of the metro politan area also, it should be in teresting news that broadcasting sta tion 2BL (Broadcasters) Sydney, are' about to increase their power so that the station will be heard further and more clearly, Already 2BL gives listeners excel lent programmes of entertainment and information,. and it. is 'particu larly easy of reception in the even ing, but with the additional power, the officials of the station epect 2BL co equal or surpass any, other in Aus tralia.

OILING THE SPRINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
OILING THE SPRINGS. Broken springs are usually caused by loose spring clips 'which permit sufficient strain to reach the centre of the spring, which is its weakest point; to cause .a fracture. Spring clips, properly tightened'to hold the spring absolutely tight against, the spring seat, will prevent springs breaking at the centre. Another cause of broken springs is rust forming between the :leaves, which not only prevents road shocks being absorbed. by the springs, ,plac ing rextra strain upon the chassis, bu't materially, increases the. possibil ity of a break when the springs are called upon to ,absorb extraordinary shocks. By the use of blocks of convenient size and a jack or a block and tackle, the frame may be raised to allow the axles to hang from; the frame, and this will slightly separate the spring leaves. Heavy oil--or, better still, oil mixed- with graphite--can then be run along the sides of the springs In liberal quantities' and by the use of a hand tyrejunmp, 'holding ...
LEAKY RADIATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
LEAKY RADIATORS. To stop the radiator from leaking, put one teaspoonful of bran into it. Start the engine to cause the water to circulate. Inside of twenty min utes the radiator will be tight and will stay ti;ght--even if the. holes are 1-16th of an inch ih diameter. Got the bran that is sold in pack ages to eat, as it is without flour or gluten, which' will not clog the radia tor tubes. Do not use "shorts," as the flour in its will cook in lumps, plug the tubes, and cause boiling. Do not put the bran in and stand around waiting for leaks to stop they won't. Get in, ride around Icr twenty minutes, and they will.
WASHING OUT THE FORD CRANK-CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
WASHING OUT THE FORD CRANK-CASE. Drain out the old oil, put in the drain plug, and pour, one half-gallon of kerosene into the breather and start the motor, letting it run for about 15 to 20 seconds. Remove the drain plug, allowing the dirty kerosene and oil to drain out. Now put one quart of clean oil into the' breather to force the kero sene out of the troughs in lower cor ners. Put the drain plug in when clear oil flows from the drain, and put in three quarts more of good oil. See that the drain plug is tight, and that the copper gasket is still there between the plug and the case.

CLEANING LEATHER UPHOLSTERY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
CLEANING LEATHER UPHOLSTERY Unless you wish to crack the leather, do not use petrol in cleaning it. One fairly good way to get off dirt from leather is to use plain water to which a little ammonia has been added. After this has dried, the leather should be rubbed briskly with a soft cloth, such as flennel or cheese-dloth.' If you wish to do the best thing possible for the leather. either purchase one of the prepared leather dressings or make some your self. For this purpose a mixture of two parts of linseed oil to one of turpentine is as effective as anything else.
