SUCCESSFUL MUNICIPAL FINANCE. In advocating at the December meeting of the Esperance Municipal Council the securing of a loan for the improvement of the Geeveston recreation ground, Waidcn E.

Davies, who attended' to distribute the prizes, eulogised the work of the teacher, and. also that of the parents, and congratulated the children on their behaviour and ap pearance, Ten special prizes tor attendance were awarded to children who had not missed a day for the whole year. These prizes were do nated by the Parents' and Friends' Association. This record was unique, as the same thing happened in 1932. Ray Sculthorpe has attended for six years without missing a ? day. When the distance and the state of the by-roads these children have to travel is taken into consideration,' a child must have a very, courageous outlook to. be able to establish such a record. : Fifteen of the prizes awarded were donated by residents of the . district, which clearly shows the co-operation of the residents with their school and teacher. After ...

Toe H I A GENEROUS ACT. The members of the New Norfolk Toe H Group have been very busy lately making toys. They collected the necessary materiai, mostly suit able timber,' andi each - evening those able have met, and worked to such effect that by Christmas Eve a re maikably good collection of toys was ready for Santa Claus to -dis'tribute,' including hobby horses, waggons;' trains, birds, animals, etc. ; also pur chased dolls that a lady very .. kindly dressed. Then came the distribu tion. Two cars were provided Santa Claus and. his assistants, and: in the late evening' and small hours ? homes in . all parts of New Norfolk and surrounding country were visited, with the result that no ; doubt when stockings, etc., were examin'ed on Christmas morning there were bright* eyes and much joy amongst the youngsters.

Dover Regatta UNFAVORABLE WEATHER ON TUESDAY. WEENE SAILS A GREAT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933
Dover Regatta UNFAVORABLE WEATHER ON TUESDAY. WEENE SAILS A GREAT RACE. The annual regatta at Dover was somewhat, marred on Tuesday by ;: heavy weather, which made the con 5 ditions for both competitors and spectators uncomfortable for the greater part of the day. Shortly ; after 10 o'clock a W.S.W. wind set in, which gamed such force an hour ; la ten as to make the water too rough to launch the speed boats and j' the dinghies, and as no improvement occurred before noon, it was decided : to postpone the races in which these . craft, were engaged, and also the district boat race, till the next day, which had been also appointed for - the! Cup. race. The attendance, i under the adverse conditions, was ' satisfactory, but it was disheartening ;j to members of the committee to see tib. many people wilfully evade the roadside collectors by turning their cars down the road to the northern beach (which they were legally en titled to do) so as to get a view of the regatta without having to ...
YESTERDAY'S RACING. FAVORED BY FINE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933
YESTERDAY'S RACING. FAVORED BY FINE WEATHER. The wisdom of postponing the races for the smaller craft from Tuesday to yesterday was fully borne out, as the weather was almost ideal for the holding of dinghy and district yacht races, and .speed boat] trials. The Cup Race was the chief at traction for the day, and it afforded a magnificent sight. Twenty-two yachts competed, the fleet comprising Dingheys, District, Derwent, B Class and1 A Class. The manoeuvring for the start was very pretty to watch, and gave some of the helmsmen op portunity to display their skill at handling their craft. Gnome was first over the line, and was closely followed in order by Tula, Weene, Zephyrus and Sireen. Weene, however, soon went put in front, and stopped1 there, completing . the_ course in 1 hour 37sec. 56min.' This was 6min. 33sec. faster than the same yacht sailed the same dis tance on Tuesday. Although Weene was first over the line, she was beaten for a place by the time al lowance of other compe...
Rowing KING'S CUP RACE N.S.W. WANT THE HUON COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933
I ' Rowing KING'S CUP RACE. N.S.W. WANT THE HUON' COURSE. The next King's Cup Race is to be rowed on Saturday, 5th May in Tasmania.'' The' local' association has asked that the contest, shall take place on the Derwent, to commence at a point two miles above the start ing, line of the disastrous 1927 i;ace, and the finish to be at Self's Point. The final selection of the course rests with the Australian Rowing Council; which comprises representa tives of all the State rowing associa-, tions in the Commonwealth and which will meet on 14th February. The N.S.W. association has already considered , the matter and have given a definite instruction to its re presentative* Mr H. G. Anderson, 'to protest against the decision of the Tasmanian Rowing Association as to the King's Cup Course, and to press for the Huon course at Frank lin, which is sheltered from all weathers and is perfect in every de tail for a race of such importance.' The Victorian Rowing Association have previously expressed...
Huon Regatta BIG PROGRAMME PROVIDED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933
Huon Regatta BIG PROGRAMME PROVIDED. The manner in which the Huon Regatta Committee have catered for the public entertainment at their annual New Year's Day Regatta is deserving of whole-hearted support from every section of the commun ity. Although . some sports com mittees have felt compelled to curtail their, prize lists and1 general expen diture, the Huon- Regatta Committee have put out the biggest prize list iri their history and have in- addition spent over £200 in improvemets to to the ground during the last 12 months. Already there are evidences of the wisdom of this attitude, as support has been forthcoming from competi tors, showmen and the general pub lie in a manner that has never before been so pronounced previous to the day. . The programme includes as usual sailing, rowing, swimming and diving contests and there is every promise of a record number of side shows. The gates will be open at 8 a.m. and arrangements have been made for providing luncheon for the pub lic at ...
QUEER CHINESE CUSTOMS. Doing and Saying Things Backwards. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933
QUEER CHINESE . CUSTOMS. I Doing and Saying Things -Backwards. | As is commonly known, piany . Chin- ese customs are. the very opposite of ours, but they1 are .only 'the wrong way, round' from our.poirit of view. In, the opinion of the native of the Flow ery Land it is we who do things back wards. How different the ways of the two countries are is easily seen when iwe remember that: A Chinese gentleman shakes his own hand when meeting a friend, and not the other person's- hand: He keeps his hat on indoors and as a sign of greeting out of doors. At other times he often does not wear it. He makes his boots white instead of black. He' uses a compass that points to the south instead of to the north. He wears white instead of black as a sign of mourning. The Chinaman laughs when he hears bad news — in order, it is said, to de ceive evil spirits that .may be.listenirig. He puts a guest of honor on his left, not on his right. - He often throws away ,tlie pulp of such things as melons, and ...
