The Geraldton Guardian THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 1948 THE FIRE MENACE [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 15 January 1948

The Geraldton Guardian THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 1948 THE FIRE MENACE Reports from many parts of the State tell of the roll being taken by fires in rural areas. In this district we have had no large-scale conflagrations, although outbreaks in various localities have caused serious losses of crops and valuable feed. The campaign which has been conducted under the aegis of the Forestry Department to make the people "fire conscious" has borne some fruit. Farmers are in very many instances to-day taking more thorough precautions to protect their holdings from fires and city and town dwellers passing through rural districts are per- haps a little more cautious in discard- ing lighted matches and cigarette ends and in extinguishing camp fires. All these things have perhaps combined to protect us from the terrible con- sequences of widespread fires such as those which ravished the countryside in former years, and this is assuredly a case in which prevention is the best cure. From the South-Wes...

ABROLHOS ISLANDS Recent Board Resignations LOCAL CONFERENCE [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 15 January 1948

ABROLHOS ISLANDS Recent Board Resignations LOCAL CONFERENCE Two meetings were held yesterday at the Geraldton Town Hall to consider     the recent action of the State Parlia- ment to disallow certain regulations of the Abrolhos Islands Board of Control. Amongst other things the regulations would have given the Board power to impose a levy of £3 per year on all fishermen using the surface of the islands. The Geraldton Fishermen's Association protested against the   imposition of the levy and as a result of their representations to the member for the district (Hon. E. H. Hall, M.L.A.) a motion was carried in the Legislative Assembly to disallow the regulations. Following the announce- ment of this action the chairman (Mr. L. W. Shepheard), the secretary (Mr. D. McM. Glynn) and Mr. W. H. Sewell tendered their resignations from the Board. Yesterday's meetings were attended by the Minister for Lands (Sir. L. Thorn) and the Under-Secre- tary for Land...

Nursing in Britain A Three-Point Programme PART-TIME HELPERS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 15 January 1948

Nursing in Britain A Three-Point Programme PART-TIME HELPERS A three-point plan for immediate action to ensure that the best use is made of all the nursing skill which the country possesses has been outlined by Britain's Minister for Health (Mr. Aneurin Bevan). While long term schemes are being worked out, the pre- sent plan calls for a review of the fac- tors causing wastage among recruits to the nursing profession, the relieving of nurses of domestic work and the exten- sion of employment of part-time nurses. Recently a Working Party set up to consider the Recruitment and Training of Nurses presented its report, but the Minister has now asked all the main organisations concerned with nursing for their observations on these findings before final decisions are taken on the matters of long, term policy suggested. "The present rate of wastage of 54 per cent, among nursing recruits is indefensible," said the Minister when urging all concerned with training nursing students not to rest ...
