AVOID DUPLICATION BROADCASTING PROGRAMME [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 9 March 1928
AVOID DUPLICATION BROADCASTING PROGRAMME The result of tlie recent co-operat ive arrangement between tlie Sydney broadcasting stations 2.F.C. and 2.B.L was tested by listeners last Saturday afternoon, when station 2 F. C. alone described the Canterbury Races, whil st 2 B. L. devoted its programme for the aEternoon to music and similiar items. .. Under the previous system, each station broadcast whatever it thought listeners were most interested .in, the result being that at the same time' similiar programmes—sporting results; perhaps possibly musical items—were being placed on the air by both stat ions at the same time. Now, liowever the arrangement has been made that there will be no duplication. On Saturday 2 F.C.- broadcast tho races from Canterbury, giving starts ers, riders, dividends, starting prices and a description of the race while 2 B. L. concentrated on pianoforte.items Romano's Dance Orchestra, a com* edian and an elocutionist until 4.45. when a complete resume of the a...

RADIO IN THE HOME YOU HEAR IT ALL OVER THE AIR HINKLER ON RADIO HE SPEAKS ON THE AIR [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 9 March 1928
HINKLER ON RADIO HE SPEAKS ON THE AIR The successful termination of the' great cross'the world flight of Bert Hinkler, -the Australian airman, has served to demonstrate again the value of view , as distinct from its uses for entertainment. The moment a telegram' reached the • capital • cities Announcing that Hinkler had been, sighted, approaching . Darwin, every broadcasting' station in Australia in terrupted its programme to inform listeners. The airmans adventures across the continent were broadcast' and when he arrived at Bundaberg. the Brisbane station 4 Q.G. described the whole scene from the field of ac tion. By a system of linking up with (lie broadcasting stations in Sydney and Melbourne 4 Q.G.' was enabled to pass on the tidings to listeners in other States who normally could not hear the Brisbane station. Thousands, of listeners the number may run into hundreds of thousands—must have heard the airman himself as he spoke a few words of aclcwledgement into the broadcasting m...

STREET CLOSING Chamber of Commerce Objects Reasons Submitted At; the Chamber of Commerce meet ing on Wednesday Alt'. J. Prank (Secretary) referred to the sugges tion or the Bland Shire Council to close Water Street against traffic. He said that in times gone by Water St. was a water reserve and for some reason or other had been dedicated a street, which in time of abnormal rain was converted into a strong stream. The Council, from time to time, were perturbed owing to the inconvenience the Hood waters had occasioned pedes trians ,and at its last meeting it was mentioned .that it was proposed to erect a culvert, 2ft high, across Main Street 'and . block Water Street: to such an extent that that thoroughfare would be closed to all traffic .and the ground raised near the old hotel. The Main Roads Board had insisted upon open culverts and the latter 'with the Shire Council had agreed to an ex penditure of i£1000 ito £1100 in that locality. If Water Street was block ed from traffic it wo...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 9 March 1928
In Movieland ABOUT TRAINING DOGS. According to Leo Duncan, owner anil educator o£ Rin-Tin-Tin, 0110 should be exceedingly careful how lie speaks to liis clog, or o£ his dog, in the presence of others, lie may not think that the dog understands. Ho doesn't understand the literal meaning o£ the words, except, per-1 Imps, his own name, but lie does, in terpret tli,e tone oC the voice even more than do'human'beings. While the tone of tlic'voice meai's a great) deal in ..human conversation, it j means much more to the dog. 1 Mr. Duncan illustrated this with Rin-Tin-Tin during the Aiming o£ Warner Brothers' production of "Tracked by the Police" for the edi-| fication of Ray Enriglit, his. new director. Using just one word, but differently accented and with vary-1 ing shadings of voice, Duncan pro duced many reactions in Rinty. | Thus, he reasons, if one speaks care lessly to his dog, depending on the meaning of the words instead of the'inflection to convey liis mean ing, they may have an ...
