Diggers Fight to Repatriate Themselves WEAVING OF ANZAC TWEED TO BE CARRIED ON [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 March 1925
Diggers Fight to Re patriate themselves &nbsp; WEAVING OF ANZAC TWEED TO BE CARRIED ON When the work of repatri. ation was begun by the. Vic orian State War Council in 1915, returned disabled sol diers were instructed in the art of hand weaving. Looms were built and yarn was pro cured from the Commonwealth Woollen Mills, Geelong. In - few months the sol diers became expert weavers and the quality of their work was such that, the tweeds pro duced by them had a ready sale at good prices. These were the first of the Anzac Tweeds which have since be come famous throughout Aus tralia and are not unknown abroad. When the work of repatri ation was taken over by the Commonwealth Department of Repatriation, it was thought that hand weaving would not survive competition, with the power looms and an attempt was made to close down the industry. A strenuous campaign, how. ever, resulted in the soldier weavers being allowed to go on -under, the control of the Returned Sailors and Soldier ...
MOTORING TRIALS OF THE OLD DAYS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
MOTORING TRIALS OF THE OLD DAYS Motor owning at the dawn of the present century was no unmixed pleasure, and those hardy early mo torists who first braved public pre judice and mechanical fickleness, cer •tainly earned every mile of enjoyment which they occasionally were blessed with, when their one and two "lung ers" consented to work without fal tering. The motor:?ts of those times had no friendly garages spread out along the road, and many of them have re corded how when they were baffled by some obscure mechanical trouble, they had to search for hours before they could unearth a mechanic from the recesses of some workshop in a back lane of doubtful repute. Igni tion, which throughout the age of motoring has remained, one of those details most likely to give trouble, was a veritable curse on the earliest models. When a platinum tube heat ed by a small lamp was the rule, end less worries prevailed. The lamp would not burn steadily in a high wind, and the heated' platinum tube woul...
MOTOR NOTES RACERS OF TO-DAY MODERN DESIGN INDICATIVE OF PRESENT HIGH EFFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
RACERS OF TO DAY: MODERN DESIGN INDICATIVE 1OF ,'PRESENT HIGH EFFICIENCY. IF any tangible proof were needed of the wonderful advances which have been made in perfecting the design of the modern car, and equip ping it with pan engine that is both efficient and economical, we have only to examine racing models of to-day in comparison with their predecessors of ten or fifteen years ago. The time when race track cars had engines with cubic capacities as high as 600 cubic, inches, is well within the lively recollection of many of the old hands, whilst even a year or two ago the limit of cubic capacity on entrants in the classic track and road race fixtures was considerably higher than it is to-day. Now the.rule is 122 cubic inches, or in Continental events 2000 cubic centimetres, which is approximately the same. All cars competing' in such famous contests as the 500 miles race at Indianapolis or the equally well known Grand Prix of Europe have this limitof" engine capacity imposed upon t...

Truarl 5Mcuir Nis hio Lppul for fem. TELLS THOUSANDS OF A GILT EDGED INVESTMENT. Mr. Jas. R. Collins, Secretary of the Federal Treasury and Director of the Commonwealth Bank, is one of the best known men in Australia. His name is at the foot of every bank note. A few nights ago he broad cast a special appeal for the Common-i wealth Loan for the States. The last time he broadcast a message it was picked up in Kansas, U.S.A., and Honghong. This time, perhaps, his voice went further. Mr. Collins said: "To decide upon good investment is by no means an easy matter. You arst want safety,1 secondly you want a good rate of interest, and lastly you want some thing which will not necessitate a lot of work in collecting what is due to you. Many of you know what per plexity may arise before an investor can make up his mind on all these points, and my message is that an investment now is offered which satisles all the necessary conditions. The Commonwealth Treasury is raising a new loan at 6 per...
