N. Z. PERMANENT FORESTS [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 7 June 1927
N. Zl> PERMANENT FORESTS The world is threatened with a timber famine Newspapers of the world take over ten thousand tons of wood pulp every day. The New York Tribune takes 342 tons of wood pulp piiper every issue America and Canada, cut over three million acres of pine between them, und accocdi g to the American Forestry Department they will ex- haust theil supplie? in ten years. America has suddenly awakened up to the fact and is hastily planting big area.-*. But in A marica a pine tree takes 35 to 45 years to mature. In New Zealand the same tree matures in 17 years. The reason is the mild climate and the even regular rainfill of five inches a month. No country in the world can compare with New Zealand as a quick grower of pine timber. In the near futuro New Zealand will domin-ite the wot Id's supply of 'imber. In 15 yea rd New Zealand will lie ablo to supply Aus- tralia with the twelve and a half mil- lion pounds worth of timber which she now imports annually. The N Z. Perpetu...

THE SPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 7 June 1927
THE SPORTS The sports on the Oval yesterday were not largely attended, though they were well carried out and pro- vided a fine afternoon's sport. The presence of two ships in port absorbed every available man for work at the wharf and also held a large number of business people in their offices. But the attendance at these sports will never be satisfactory while a large number of people can see the sport (without paying anything) from out- side the fence just as well as from the grandstand. A seven feet iron fence along that side is necessary and should be proceeded with at once. Enter- prising committees who provide the public witb good clean sport should have every encouragement. 75 yards Handicap 1st Heat.-L Leak 1, K Gurry 2, Time 8 secs. &nbsp; 2nd Heat, -K Clark 1, W Burton 2, Time 7 4/5 sees. 3rd Heat.- W Stanley 1, D Pres- ley 2. 4th Heat.-R Cook 1. 5th Heat.-E Jacobs 1, Final.-Clark 1, Stanley 2, Jacobs 3.
