NEW YEAR'S DAY [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
NEW YEAR'S DAY iThe new year holiday was spent by Mel bourne residents under ideal weather condi tions. Thb weather expert had promised that the day would be fine, and his promise was realised to the fullest measure. It .was a day for the hills and.the sea beaches. The irailway and tramway facilities might be of the most uncomfortable description, but even they could not prevail against the call of ,:o dazzling a summer's day to the hoiiday seeker. The holiday spent lazily by the suburban resident with pipe and book, or hose and watering can, was too. colorless to contemplate as the proper' way of en joying such a day. The bush offered green and shadowy allurement, and the beaches for all 'their crowds-a glittering induce ment Ficmington, yachting and - carnival claimed all their own enthusiasts; but Bay and beach and hills won the great public. Newv Year's day forimed a fitting wind up for the summer public holidays.•

PROFESSOR1 DAVID AS ADVISER. LONDON, 31st December. Professor Edgeworth David, of Sydney Univ:ersity, who was scientifie officer with the Shackleton Antarctic' expedition of 1907-1909, has arrived in London, and will act as scientific adviser to Sir Ernest Shackleton's forthcoming Imperial trans Antarctic expedition. Professor David states that. the journey will probably be the most perilous and diflicult in the? world.. Dogs and sledges, with an aero plane attachment, he regards as the best possible means of transport. In order to make the journey valuable, Professor David adds, Sir Ernest Shackle ton will probably divert his route slightly to the right when near .the South Polar plateau, with the object of locating the Antarctic Andes. Professor David states that Dr... :aw son's aeroplane sledge was only a partial success, but with modification such a sledge may prove a valuable adjunct to dogs. MANY APPLICATIONS TO JOIN.

EXPLORER INTERVIEWED. "WORSE THAN POLAR JOURNEY." [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
EXPLORER INTERVIE?\ ED. " WORSE THAN POLAR JOURUNE Y." Inr the course- of an interview Sir Ernest Shackleton said the expedition might solve the complex problem of the continental nature of the Antarctic, in eluding the -assumed existence of a moun tain range: The journey would be longer than to the Pole and back, and infinitely more difficnlt, as there would be no depots, and. the dxpeditionl would be always ad-` vancing. More than half the distance would be over a new route.. If the condi tions were good and the party was up to time, he intended to strike from the Pole on a new trail, keeping on the plateau be hiild the western mountains and coming out at Wood Bay. .Otherwise he wouild use Scott's or Amundseni's track. Trhe transontinental party should be able- to report progress hi April. 1915. Sir Ernest Shackleton estimnates the cost: of the expeditioL at £50,000,. if it is to be properly carried out. He.does not intend to malke a public appeal for subscriptions. Be states that...

THE WESTERN PLAINS. Berry Bank. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
THE WESTERN PLAINS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] Berry Bank. Nearly all the barley and oat crops are cut or shipped, and the average is sat i'sfactory, about .50 and 45 bushels per acre. -A start has now been made to ship the wheat,, and in most cases the sample is not well filled, and the return will not nearly be up to expectations, through the ravages of "take all." This pest is very prevalent, especially. in rich soil and loamy buckshot. _Most farmers think it is caused by the very dry win ter and early spring. The subsoil did not get wet, so. the roots spread on the sur face, and as the ground only got saturated once, and that was on 19th September, it was too late for the roots to go down, so as soorj .as dry weather set in the plants dried off. All produce is very low. Ex tra prime hay, is only worth, in the stack, 20/ per ton; oats, 1/7 -per bushel; bar ley, 1/9; and wheat, 3/2.

REVIEW OF THE YEAR 1913. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
REVIEW OF THE YEAR 1913. Like 1912, the year 1913 has been Ilarkede by great weather variability, times of most abundant rainfall alternating with long .periods of extreme dryness. The failure of the winter rainfall was. a. nost marked feature, June, July and August being extremely dry over much of the north and north west. This was due to the extraordinary weak ness of the usual winter rain bringers, the Ant actic disturbances. Fortunately during the spring storms of tropical origin brought extremely good rains, which, thoughl-lpot quite early enough for some-crops, fell in such abundance that a record wheat harvest is anticipated. January was very dry and moderately cool. Feb ruary was warmer and moister, .one remarkable tropical storm about the 13th giving copious rains. March was very wet, two or three monsoonal storms giving much more than the average monthly rainfall--quite twice the ordinary amount in the Mtalice and Gippsland. This greatly facili tated all seeding operations...
