HUONVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 24 May 1934
HUONVILLE. Geo. Cole played another brilliant game last Saturday; It was. un canny the way he anticipated the, flight of -the ball, and was always- on the spot to receive it. Seven goals— .not a bad bag. ? Steve Clarke is improving at every appearance. He has the right tem perament for a successful nlaver. Lyall Burrows was right* on the job again; He is showing great form in all departments this season. Bluey Cannan is beginning to show some of the form he displayed last season, when- he was 'one of ? the best.' More time for practice would top him off nicely. , Bill Hooper showed the benefit .of a week's hard training, and can be depended on for some useful work from now on. Reg. Tanner staged a vei-y. pleas ing return to form last Saturday. It was one of his best, games for the maroons. * Troodles Blundel was : frequently prominent, though much of his good work was in knocking out to Ken Page, who never failed? to do the needful.

NOTES. KERMANDIE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 24 May 1934
NOTES. KERMANDIE. Jim Greatbatch played his best game for Kermandie on Saturday. He was always ? in the thick of the play, and' when the pressure was on at the finish he was marking bril liantly. Hec. Eyles started the match ^ in finp form, but did not. last lone\''A nasty fall twisted a knee. He was rushed straight to Hobart, but latest reports are that the injury was not as serious as first thought. Reg. Ashlin again showed improve ment, and perhaps won the match for the locals, when he repeatedly held' up strong Franklin attacks in the full back position. Hy. Withrington did three men's woi'k, and was one of the- few with a kick left at the finish. We have yet to see 'Micky' play a bad game. W. Knight is still troubled with a badly bruised] thigh. Despite - this handicap he played really well,' and is to be congratulated on his- improved self-control. Sid. Gane pleased everyone with his all-round display. He can fill any place in the field, and was never known to do anything unfa...

FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 24 May 1934
FRANKLIN. ?Tony Johnston, again played' a sterling game. He led his team well from start to finish, and was unlucky not to win. ? Frank Fr.eeman, aftgr being- put for a weeH. mad^ . a welcome re appearance in 'the rtiek. Basil Temple, though suttenng from neuralgia, played' his usual steady game. Pat. Rooke sustained his reputa tion as the best full-forward in the Huon by annexing five of the eight goals kicked. ? Allan Richardson had a day off. The ball never seemed to bounce right for him. Frank -Fitzpatrick .played a useful' steady game. . ' Ernie Giles did remarkably well,1 considering the pain his leg was giv ing him.

DISAPPOINTING FINISH BY CYGNET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 24 May 1934
DISAPPOINTING FINISH BY CYGNET. The conditions were all in favor of a fast open game at Huonville last Saturday, when the locals were matched against Cygnet. The latter have been having a lean time this season, but their performance against Kermandie the previous week gave promise of them breaking the ice at the expense ot the maroons. Strength was given to this impression by their play in the first quarter, when they established a lead of 8 points, but they slipped1 back in the second quar ter, and thereafter never looked like making a recovery. It was a re markable exhibition of play never thelessj in that the scores did not, even when Huonville were widening the gap, show the true merits of the game. There were periods of really brilliant football by the visitors, but they faded out at the critical point, and got nothing to show for then effort. Huonville led by 79 points when the final bell rang, which is be lieved to be the biggest margin ever put up between these teams. Play o...

MANAGEMENT OF FRUIT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 24 May 1934
MANAGEMENT OF FRUIT INDUSTRY. Speaking at Franklin- last Thurs day, Sir John Evans said the past two seasons had' shown beyond all doubt some form of management should be exercised over the fruit industry To continue the present me'.hods of each grower pleasing himself how, when and where he shipped his fruit, would only bring about ruination, which would not only affect the individual but the ? State generally. He advo cated the formation of a council, comprising two representatives of each fruitgrowing municipality; ✓ the Huon Municipal Association, the State Fruity Advisory Board, shipping representatives, and members of Parliament, who should be required to draw up a scheme for the manage ment of the industry, and place it be fore Parliament for ratification and adoption. The suggestion apparently met with the approval of those oresent.

TO ASSIST A NOTED HUONITE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 24 May 1934
TO ASSIST A NOTED HUONITE. Huonites learned with sorrow last week that Madam Amy Sherwin, who was born at Jud'bury 79. years ago, and subsequently earned world-wide reputation as an operatic singer, is in cis'lressed circumstances. An ap peal has rightly been made by the ijord Mayor of Hobart for contribu tions towards a relief fund, and. al ready a generous response has been made, but needless to say the amount is still short of wha-t will provide for necessities for any great length ;' of time. Madam Amy Sherwin's father was in business at Franklin before he and his wife took up a selection in what was then the virgin forest ' at Judbury. The children of the- Frank lin State School, under the direction of their head teacher, Mr A. B. Gaul, decidgd» to hold a concert in the Town Hall on 14th June, and are hoping to raise a substantial contri bution to the fund by this means.'
