MANGLE BOARDS AS CURIOS. Some Bear Family History Mangle boards occupy a considerable part of the new premises of the Haslemere (Surrey) Educational Museum, which have now been opened. The mangle boards, of which there are more than a hundred on view, were collected by the Rev. Gerald S. Davies, Master of Charterhouse, from various countries of Northern Europe. The Norwegian boards aro ornately painted, and curl slightly upwards, the German ones, carved in a heavier man- ner, have two handles; the Icelandic specimen is massive, small curved, and coloured. Only English and the French tioards are plain and uncarved. "When the young men of northern countries were engaged," Mr. Davies ex- plained, "they carved for their nancees mangle boards, on which they inscribed the date on which the wedding was to take nlace." One board has a date on it mor« than 300 years old. Some of the boards passed from ono generation to another, with records of the family history carv- ed on them. An interest...

BE ALL AUSTRALIAN Develop an Artist's Life [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926

BE ALL AUSTRALIAN Develop an > Artist's : life "It is 20 years since I was last in Australia," said Percy Grainger, the eminent piapist, ' recently, "and, in that time it has developed and progressed enormoysly. The fact^to keep in mind is to be Australian, to develop Austral- ian resources, and you will bevelop an indi,vi,dual Australian type. If I were in charge of things here If. such a thing were possible-I would prohlibt all foreign artists for the next 10 years. You Australians are too good to strangers. Even," Mr. Grainger smiled, "to .strangers like myself, who are Australian boin. You do'not appre- ciate our own artists enough. If 1 could not ban foreign artists, 1 would take 50 per cent, of their earnings and devote it to Australian ventures. "Then, again, SO per cent, of every progratnmo should be Australian.

DO INSECTS WIRELESS? [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926

DO INSECTS WIRELESS? Was Marconi the grst to apply ether waves to a practical use or did Mother Nature forestall him?- This question is now interesting students', the theory being that certain insects converse by minute radio impulses broadcast.frorô their antennae. The -theory arises fiom the fact that moths and. other similar insects are able to get in touch with their kind over long distances, even though the Insects arekheld cap- tive in a box or tin. What is claimed to be a local ex- ample occurred recently when a moth was caught in the Western District of Victoria,- and taken to Melbourne by tiain.. The following morning the mate of the imprisoned insect was seen hov- ering round the cage of the captive!

SMALLER AMERICAN CARS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926

SMALLER AMERICAN CARS .- While several American car manufac- turers are asserting that¡ smaller light ear,s must be 'p£odu,çedj o.thers maintain .hat (,hey. are opposed to any attempt to create a lighter 'four class. Several nanufaciurers have intimated that they will not follow the lead of Overland and H,upmobile under any circumstances, as they do noi. believe that Americans want smaller cars. They do not reveal whe- ther they, have considered the' produc- tion of cars solely to compete in outside markets with British products. "' 'Walter P. Chrysler, builder of one four and 'three six-cylinder models, is de- finitely opposed to the attçmpts to copy European cars. l¡io says: ."What the public wants, is not a cheaper, smaller automobile than it now lias, but roomier, easier riding, and longer lived car for the same money. Better chassis en | ginecring can give the public that car."
