SAVED FROM DROWNING. BY THREE BOY SCOUTS. ROCKHAMPTON, February 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930
SAVED FROM DROWNING. BY THREE BOY SCOUTS. ' ROCKHAMPTON, February 5. Our Mt. Morgan correspondent wrote yesterday: — ' But for the promptitude and bravery of three boys, Keviu Whouley, Ted Warren and Jim Sterling, the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ulaud bonter, James-street, Mt. Morgan,, would have been drowned. With another young girl she was swimming in Dairy Creek, near the Mud Bridge, when they, got into difficulties and were being carried down the creek, which was in flood. Miss Sonter, being a poor swimmer, went under, but the other girl reached the bank. The boys, noticing the drown ing girl, dashed in, and grabbed her just as she was rising for the third time, and with difficulty brought her to eafety. It was some time before she regained her senses. Earlier in the day Master Whouley was instrumental in saving a boy named Vesey from drowning at prac tically the same place. All the boys are Boy Scouts and their knowledge of swimming and first aid stood to them.
MR. WALKER'S TOUR. MAIZE POOL DIFFICULTIES. ROCKHAMPTON, February 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930
MR. WALKER'S TOUR. MAIZE POOL DIFFICULTIES. ' ROCKHAMPTON. February 5. 'It waB purely a departmental trip, nothing spectacular, and with the eo eial aide almost completely neglected,' said Mr. H. F. Walker, Minister for Agriculture and Stock, to a ' Bulle tin' reporter yesterday when ques tioned regardnig his tour of the North. Mr. Walker arrived by the Mackay train and left again at noon for Bris bane, but he managed to get in a lot of work into his morning. Between de putations and callers he gave the 'Bul- letin' representative a resume of his lour. One of the biggest problems he had to face, Til said, was the matter of the assignment of cane areas. Certain re presentations were made to him by cane growers and, as a result, the Depart ment will refer the matter to the Board controlling the assignment of cane growing areas. ' How is the maize pool operating in the North!' the Minister was asked. In reply, Mr. Walker said that he found opinions among the growers very divided as to ...
FINEST COUNTRY. AND FINEST PEOPLE. HOBART, February 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930
FINEST COUNTRY. AND FINEST PEOPLE, HOB ART, February 4. Opening a regatta at Hobart to-day, Lord StoiiL'haven said that Australia «-ia the finest country in tlie world, inhabit ed by the finest people. He could not join the pessimists and croakers, because Australia's difficulties were smaller than those which had been overcome in tho past. There was nothing which con firmed his optimism for the future more than to see the youth of the nation en gaged in such splendid contests, in a spirit which had been handed to them as a birthright. As long as that spirit continued they need not fear for the future.
THE GREAT OUTBACK. ALFRED JOHN HAYLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930
THE GREAT OUTBACK. ALFRED JOHN HAYLOCK. Mr. Fred Ord writes: — Your issue of Saturday last \vas to me very suggestive and interesting. The leading article on Captain Arthur Phillip, showing what good influence one Man can effect, brought to my mind, the laudable, but almost ignored, efforts ot the late Mr. Alfred John Uaylock (of Haylock and Co., the 'Co.' being the ' late Mr. Geo. Silae Curtis), to encour age and assist settlement and homu making 'out West.' Particularly fortunate was Mr. Hay Jock's idea (and battle) for the then Government to bore for artesian water at Blaekal). 'The credit for originating this idea' (as your leader puts it) may be given to the young Martin Brothers whom Mr. Haylock found industriously, day after day, sinking a well or shaft through the black soil of their selo,-.. .. :i on Alice Downs resumption. To the writer Mr. Haylock empha tically declared that the finding of sub terranean water was essentially a nation al job and forthwith (with the coopera...
