AT SLING CAMP. MR. JORDAN PAYS A VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 January 1939
AT SLING CAMP.
MR. JORDAN PAYS A VISIT.
According to a report from London, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Jord- an recently visited the military cemetery at Tidworth and paid respect to the New Zealand sol- diers and nurses who are buried there, including Lieutenant Carey, who gave his life by throwing himself on a Mills bomb wlt.cn had been accidentally dropped amongst a party of New Zealand soldiers at Sling Camp. They visited Sling Camp, which is now occupied by Imperial troops. They also inspected the Kiwi on the hill overlooking the camp, which is maintained by the mili- tary authorities. Mr. and Mrs. Jordan after- wards visited Bulford, Amesbury, Codford, Lark Hill, and other places well known to members oi! the New Zealand Forces. The visit of the High Commis sioner to the district was appre- ciated by civic authorities, the people and the Press of the dis- trict. Many of the "diggers" in Upper Hutt will remember Sling Camp, also the Kiwi.
100 MILLION TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 January 1939
100 MILLION TREES.
New Zealand's Forest Service is preparing to plant 100,000 acres of barren land with pines and other quick-growing trees in the next five years. Already there are in the Domin- ion great new forests of pines planted by the State, with a total of 428,000 acres. Timber from these forests, which are just be- coming old enough to supply the sawmills, was worth over £100,000 last year. This year it is expected that more than three times as much will be cut. In the next five years another 100 million trees will be planted on State lands—nearly 70 trees for every man, woman, and child in New Zealand.

"I never kissed a girl until I met your mother. Will you be able to say the same to your son?" "Yes, dad, but not with such a straight face." Tommy had spent a lot of time looking at a bookstall and came home very pleased at what he had seen. "Dad, I see they have publish- ed a dictionary containing 5000 extra words.'' "Great Scott! For Heaven's sake don't tell, your mother."

WEEK-END ENTERTAINMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 January 1939
A new comedy team that bids fair to rival any screen combina- tion of the past makes its debut in the persons of Robert Mont- gomery and Virginia Bruce, team- ed for the first time in "The First Hundred Years," screening at the Mayfair Theatre on Saturday and Monday. Presenting Montgomery in all his accustomed comedy deftness, the picture further offers Miss Bruce in wh-.it is certainly her most important role to date as the theatrical-agent: wife who cannot bear to give up a successful career in order to make a home for her boat-designer husband. Warren William, in the type of charac- terisation which won him fame in such earlier pictures as "The Dark Horse" and the Perry Mason stories, proves himself thor- oughly at home as Miss Bruce's business partner.
DOUBLE SCREENING AT MAJECTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 January 1939
DOUBLE SCREENING AT MAJECTIC.
A picture that combines an abundance of laughs with plenty of pathos is always one that shoots straight to the heart of any audience. The story of a son who doesn't know his own unscrupu- lous father, and yet, through prosecution is responsible for his redemption, provides mighty powerful drama. Otto Kruger is superb as the crooked lawyer who falls victim to his own cunning. His portrayal of a man torn between father love and the most important case ,of his career is a magnificent study in restraint. On the other hand, Kruger's clever handling of the comedy situations is a tribute to his versatility. In the role of the idealistic boy who refuses to be corrupted, Douglas Montgomery is responsible lor a sensitive and understanding performance Jac- queline Wells, playing the roman- tic lead opposite Montgomery, handles an extremely difficult role in >-plenclid fashion. "Counsel For Crime" will ap- peal to thoi?? who like to laugh, those who like t...

HOUSE AND HOME HINTS. FOR THE HOUSEWIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 January 1939
HOUSE AND HOME HINTS.
FOR THE HOUSEWIFE.
If onions are held under water whilst being peeled, eyes do not run and hands do not smell. To prevent milk from burning drop a lump of butter in a warm saucepan before pouring in the milk. Milk will be less likely to boil over if a china funnel as used in pies, is stood in the centre of the saucepan. In hot weather put butter oh a plate; invert a large earthen flower-pot over it, which has been previously scrubbed clean and soaked in cold water. Over the flower-pot drape a muslin cloth, wrung out in cold water. Dip the pot and the muslin in fresh water once or twice a day. It will then keep beautifully cold. Do not put hot cooked fruit into a tart; the steam given off will sodden the pastry before it has started to cook.

DOMINION TENNIS CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 January 1939
DOMINION TENNIS CHAMPION.
Mr. N. Edwards, the New Single Dominion Champion, is well- known in Upper Hutt, having re- sided many years in the district. Our congratulations go out to Mr. Edwards on attaining this coveted position, which was fully deserved. Mrs. Edwards who also comes from Upper Hutt, must feel very proud of her husband and may be assured that the whole of the dis- trict shares in our congratula- tions. Although Upper Hutt is only a small town, distinction has come its way just lately, producing two champions in Mrs. R. Bradley, Dominion Aria winner and now the Dominion Champion of tennis. If only our representative bowlers can bring home a championship from Auckland, Upper Hutt will be well established o"n the map.
