POSTPONEMENT OF GYMKHANA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
POSTPONEMENT OF GYMK HANA. Although it was quite a useful little rain that did it, and was much needed in the country, there was a natural disappointment that it should come on Saturday afternoon, and cause the postponement of the Gymkhana, for which so much pre paration had been made. It was cold and showery during the early part of the day, then rain set in m earnest a little after midday, that made the holding of the Gymkhana practically an impossibility. How ever, the rain has done good, and we can hope for the Gymkhana another day, which will probably be early in February next.

Theatre Notes "20,000 YEARS IN SING SING." [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
Theatre Notes '20,000 YEARS IN SING SING.' This screen drama was taken from j the book by Lewis E. Dawes, warden of Sing Sing prison, who unques tionably knows more about the crim inal life, as well as the technical side of prison affairs, than any other man in the country. The story deals with a 'Big Shot' gunman, who, when finally convicted, believes he can rule the prison as he ruled his political gang. His personal attach ment for the warden becomes so strong that he voluntarily returns to prison and1 the chair when on parole, rather than let the warden down. Besides the many thrills, including a prison riot, there is a_ glowing under lying romance, made inspiring by the touching loyalty of women convicts for their misguided' husbands and sweethearts. Spencer Tracey has the leading role, with Bette Davis playing . opposite him. Others in the cast include Arthur Byron, Lyle Talbot, Grant Mitchell, Warren Hymer, Lois Calhern, Edward J. McNamara, and Sheila Terry.' War den Dawe's b...

If;, these varieties had proved to be 'not wanted by buyers they would automatically be come unprofitable, and it, would be a very foolish orchardist who would go on producing ixriprofitable fruit year after year. . The fact was, how ever, that some of , the prohibited varieties were distinctly profitable, and, to cut them out would cause , a severe loss to the grower concerried.' Ther...

LARGE LITTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
V LARGE LITTERS. The 'chief advantage of lai*ge lit ters is that they allow a n^argixv for those casualties which often occur, comments an overseas writer. In a very large litter there are certain to be . some pig that are more or less wux Liiiuoa J.IUH1 cnc mot. ouuii pi&a can be sacrificed without any qualms. But even when the family is a large one it is a mistake to weed out any pig that seems to have a chance un the danger pex-iod is over. As a general rule, this extends over the first three or four days after birth. If any pig succumbs from natural weakness or from some unnatural cause, the misfox*tune will probably occur within the period mentioned. After that one may use one's dis cretion in regard to the remainder.
