Diamond Creek Bush Fire Brigade Formed At a public meeting called in the main hall by the Mayor of Heidelberg (Cr. J. L. Ryan) at Diamond Creek last Wednes day night it was decided to form a bush fire brigade to be known as the Diamond Creek Bush Fire Brigade. The Mayor was act ing chairman at the meeting and was later elected President of the brigade. An astonishing feature of the meeting was the extraordin arily apathetic support given by the district landowners to the small group of public spirited residents who were trying to offer property owners some protection from possible outbreaks of fire. Of the twelve men ,present, at least three were men who were too old to *be active fighters. Three w.vre young employes, and among the others were a representative of the Council, two butchers, an hotel keeper, an engineer, and a timber merchant. Of farmers and orchard ists there was a noticeable absence. The brigade formed is not connect ed with either the Metropolitan Fire Brigades Boa...

Marketing Of Apples And Pears PROBLEM REMAINS A HORNED SYLLOGISM Meeting At Diamond Creek A LARGE gathering of fruitgrowers listened glumly in an oppres- sive atmosphere while Mr. W. J. Hutchinson. M.H.R., explained the Government's Marketing Plan at Diamond Creek on the even- ing of December 28. Little enlightenment, was gleaned by growers present, but they are now convinced—as little as they might like it—that they &nbsp; will have to put up with the Fruit Pool for the duration of the war. The one ray of comfort was Mr. Hutchinson's assurance that &nbsp; the Federal Government would stand by the industry should it &nbsp; become unstable as a result of the Pool. Mr. W. H. Everard, M.L.A., vigorously attacked the Government for not seeking advice from the industry before constituting the Control Board. He said if &nbsp; the Government was sincere for the welfare of the industry, they would offer a reasonable advance instead of a mere pittance. They ha...

Montmorency Bush Fire Threatens Four Homes The first bushfire of the year threat ened four homes at Montmorency on Thursday, December 28. Twenty-five local volunteer beaters aided by the Ivanhoe and Greenabor ough brigades, fought the fire and controlled it before it reached an area of thickly timbered country. The outbreak was confined to about six acres. At about 1 p.m. on Thursday, 28th, a fire started in the eighteen-inch high grass on a vacant block of land at the corner of Wilson Avenue and Rattray Road, Montmorency. Fanned by a strong wind the flames spread rapidly through four properties owned by Messrs. A. J. Murray, Wal ker, J. Cavill and H. J. Williamson. To get into Williamson's the fire jumped Rattray Road. All four homes together with the outbuildings were endangered. Trees were burned six feet from the ground and several fencing posts burned, but no othdr damage was done, due to the enthus iastic efficiency of the fighters. Had the lroe gained a firm hold in Williamso...
