Fruit Industry NEED FOR ORGANISED MANAGEMENT. AMERICAN SCHEME IN OPERATION. A LEAD FOR TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 31 May 1934
Fruit Industry NEED FOR ORGANISED MAN AGEMENT. AMERICAN SCHEME IN OPERA TION. A LEAD FOk TASMANIA. During the past few months we have repeatedly stressed the need for a scheme of management of the mar keting of, fruit on; an industry basis, and while the Suggestion has met with' the. approval of individual grow ers,- nothing definite has yet been accomplished by the growers towards .the adoption of a more profitable means 'of selling fruit than the present, inadequate and out of date methods. ? The slump in fruit prices is not peculiar to Tasmania or Australia. America, where fruit growing is conducted on an infinitely larger scale, and where marketing methods are:better in many respect than: they are in the Commonwealth, has found it necessary to take steps towards en suring better returns for the grower, and to this end adopted the Agricul tural Adjustment Act, which enables those engaged in primary production to make agreements regarding the orderly marketing of their crops, and ...

Knight, ruptured thigh; Jim Great batch, ill; Phil. Gorman, twisted knee; and Bill Thompson has been added to the list with an injured back. Two or three of these will be recovered enough to play next Saturday however. Roger Palmer improved still more this week, and* played easily his best game so far this season. He had plenty of work to do, and hardly made a mistake all day. Jack Warren was injured early in the game, and was moved fullfor ward. He recovered later, arid after half-time gave the Huonville backs a busy time. He kicked five nice goals. Reg.

Gane appeared to feel the responsibility of captainship rather heavy, and he was not so' alert as on other occasions. All the same he was one of the best. Alb...
