MOTOR REGISTRATION ANOMALY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly and Castlereagh — 12 December 1929

MOTOR REGISTRATION ANOM ALY. The unfair distinction between the cost- of the registration of a motoi lorry'belonging to a farmer and ono owned by a grazier, is exercising- the minds of the western pastoralists, and the matter was brought up at the last meeting of the Coonamble branch of the Graziers' Association. Mr. A. Lloyd, a Coonamble pastoralist, claim ed the same exemption when paying his motor lorry registration fee as that granted a farmer. The unfairness of the tax on the grazier is apparent •to all. He has to use his lorry to car ry fodder for his starving stock in times of drought! also to convey his wool to the rail siding, and ut'lise/ it in a variety of ways in the working of the station. Why the distinction has been made seems hard to understand The association resolved that repre sentation be made to the Minister for local government that the same sum in the way of concession in license foes be granted to graziers as was al lowed to the farmers.

CHERCHEZ YA FEMME. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly and Castlereagh — 12 December 1929

CHERCHEZ YA FEMME. For ages men have fought for wo men. In the stone age our skin-clo thed ancestors tackled each other with murderous looking clubs.

"Keep going boys, it's all right" Then all at once Sergeant Ferris ap peared in their midst. "Don't worry" he said, "the sergeant is right here." ■Round four will take place in the Parkes police court.

THE POOR EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly and Castlereagh — 12 December 1929

THE POOR EDITOR. Anything might happen to a. news paper mian tliese days. Recently a North Coast journalist who will bo nameless—retired early to bed, while his wife attended a social gathering and reported it. When the good wife returned home, she brought with her several lady friends. So surprised were the lady visitors—and the jour nalist's own wife-—to find the poor beggar in bed so early, that they straight away proceeded to pull him out. This task they accomplished, and "spanked" him well into the bar gain 011 a spot that nature—in her wisdom—has so wisely provided for spanking. That is only one injustice that editors havo f.o contend with. Is it any wonder that many of them have maniacal tendencies.
