FOOTBALL THE MAHER CUP JUST MISSED. COOTA. BEATS GUNDAGAI 6 to 5 [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 6 September 1928
FOOTBALL THE MAHER CUP miiitimiiiiiifiiiimimimiiitmimiiitiiiiiimitiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiii JUST MISSED. COOTA. BEATS GUNDAGAI 6 to 5 Yesterday Gundagai took a team of footballers over to Cootamundra' to attempt to bring back the Maher Cup. The weather was anything but that which suits football. The wind was blowing at almost gale pace, which made the. flight of' the ball hard to iudire. - The play was a poor exhibition of football. On rare occasions was open play witnessed by the specta tors. The Gundagai lads put up a very solid game and were unlucky to lose. Coota's 6 points came from three goals kicked by Phillips, dur ing- the first half.' In this period Coota. had the advantage of the strong wind that was blowing, while in the second period Gundagai were not helped nearly as much by the ele ments, as the wind had abated con siderably. Blundell's try was a, gem. He ran from full-back nearly 75yds. to score near the posts. . A very poor. -crowd witnessed the match. Only £22/9/- being ta...
WHEATGROWERS OBJECT TO COMPULSORY POOL (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 6 September 1928
WHEATGR0WERS OBJECT TO COMPULSORY POOL (To the Editor). ? Prominent' N.S.W. Wheat Growers Object to a Compulsory Pool on the Grounds of 'Safety First.' We, as wheatgrowers, take this op portunity of issuing- a final warning to our fellow growers to study the nronosed scheme of Compulsory Pooling from every angle, and espec- I ially as it affects each one personally — that is the acid test. ? j We wish to point out briefly a few 1 incontrovertible facts: A Pool can not add anything to the price of our wheat, which is governed by the inexorable law of. supply and de mand; so-called 'orderly marketing' is meaningless and a catch phrase designed to trap the unthinking. A 'local market' price is hopeless in view of the fact that the other ex porting States have definitely, turned down Compulsory Pooling, any at tempt to raise the price would flood our market with Victorian wheat, to the loss of our own growers. The open market, due to expert, economi cal and efficient management, has inv...

Godfrey, W. J. Prowse, A. Vicq, Jervois, G. R. Holm and J. R. Glas cock. Mr. Stox-key, in opening the case, said the girl would tell that at a dance at Nangus she danced' with accused, and went for a walk with accused over to the tennis courts; something occurred there.

He did not anticipate either of these defences in this case; but understood that the defence would deny every thing. This case would boil itself down to the uncorroboi-ated testi mony of the girl that connection did take place. Effi...
