Tasmanian Paper-Making Project Melbourne, October 1. Explaining the position of Tasmanian Paper Pty^ Ltd., at the half-yearly meeting of Amalgamated Zinc (De Bavay's) Ltd.. today, Mr. E. H. Shackell. acting chairman, said that, owing to the ; unsettled fl-nam-ini and political out- : look, it was not possible for the cirec- j tors to make the progress for which : they had hoped in their negotiations , with people who had shown an interest in the paper-making project. Based on the Huon Valley forests, discussions were proceeding, the result of which could not be forecast with any degree of certainty. It appeared to be un thinkable that the paper industry should not be launched.

FURLER'S 150TH GAME Long Career With North [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
FURLER'S 150TH GAME Long Career With North It falls to the lot of few players to take part in 150 games for one dub, but P. Furler, North Adelaide's captain, will achieve that feat In tomorrow's match. To lead the side to premier ship honors in his 150th game would be a personal triumph for Furler. whose vigorous yet scrupulously fair ruck work has been of great assistance to North in recent years.

He did not. however, show his true worth until he was called into the ruck. He has been a permanent member of the State side for several years, and with Whitehead and V. John son is the best ruckmas in the State. Footscray 'Buying Up™ Pootscray is evidently determined to gain a place in the final four of the Victorian League next season, even at the expense of purchasing players from Other Stat...
