AVON DAM RANKS AMONGST THE WORLD'S BIGGEST. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 12 February 1924

AVON dam I RANKS AMONGST THE WORLD'S BIGGEST. 1 The Avon Dam will be one of the largest works of its kind in the world. The dam road is a worthy 'curtain-raiser.' It covers the seven miles between West Bargo, on the main Southern line, and the works, and it had to be constructed to per mit of works transport. Notwith standing the heaviest of traffic for some years, the surfacc to-day makes travelling a real pleasure. It is a feather in the cap of Mr. Haskings, the resident engineer in charge of the dam works. Before the work proper could be commenced, over 600 workmen and their families had to be housed, and in a most hygienic way, for the township is on the catchment area ; and power had to be brought cross country from Port Kembla. The township, with its garden-brightened cottages, kerbed and guttered roads, is quite unlike the canvas towns usually associated with big construc tion works, and the plant represent- ? ing £110,000 is the last word in j modern efficiency. i ITS DIMENS...

Other People's Views. THE BETTERMENT TAX DEPUTATION The Editor, The Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 12 February 1924

Other People's Views. , j THE BETTERMENT TAX DEPUTATION The Editor, The Mail. Sir, — On the 31st January the Minister for Works received a de putation introduced by Mr. Main, M.L.A., which submitted an impor tant but unusual proposal. The deputation was promoted by the Combaning-Methul Railway League, and it asked for the construction of a line of railway from Combaning, near Temora, to Grong Grong, some miles east of Narandera, thus es tablishing an important cross-country link between the lines of Cargellico and Hay, and at the same time serving a very extensive area of good wheat country. The unusual feature about the proposal was the expressed willing ness of the speakers on the deputa tion to pay for the railway them selves. The Minister was obviously impressed. He was so used to be ing asked to build railways and let the other fellow pay. Mr. C. King, Methul, explained the betterment tax idea. The settlers were wil ling to pay 6d per acre per annum for 20 years on all land wit...

OUR PRIME MINISTER AT GALLIPOLI. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 12 February 1924

OUR PRIME MINISTER AT GALLIPOLI. Mr. Bruce landed at Gallipou on Friday morning, and visited the cemeteries on the South. Peninsula, where he himself served in 1915. Al though the aspect was most changed, Mr. Bruce, recognised many of the smaller leaiurcs wiuui wwc ouwi ok important part of his life nearly a decade ago. These inccluded the remains of, a trench he had helped to build near Pine Farm. The beach was also full of memories, not always of the most pleasant. Mr. Bruce made a point of visiting all the cemeteries, where he carefullly scrutinised and identified the graves in order that he might recognise any old comrades. His first remark on alighting at the first cemetery he visited was pithily significant, 'same old mud.' Mr. Bruce also visited the impressive French cemetery above Morto Bay, and stood in silent homage before the French memorial to the glorious dead.

STORY OF THE SEA. A remarkable story of the sea is revealed by the arrival in Liverpool of the crew of a sailing vessel of 100 tons. When the vessel was on a voyage from Oporto to Newfound land, the whole of the crew, except the captain and cook, were pros trated by smallpox. Simultaneously a terrific storm broke out, and for a fortnight the captain a(nd cook handled the ship.
