BLESSINGS OF SLEEP A DOCTOR'S PLEA CHIEF NOURISHER IN LIFE'S FEAST. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 9 January 1929
BLESSINGS OF SLEEP A DOCTOR'S PLEA CHIEF NOtTEISHEE IN UTE'S FEAST. 'If you can only go to sleep it is as good as raiding the larder, or per haps, even better.' This was the keynote of the lecture delivered by Dr. Stella Churchill, of the London County Hospital, at tho Institute of Hveiene, where she ioust ed at many preconceived notions. Could not, she asked, a league b« founded for the abolition of the breakfast bell? All persons should be allowed to sleep as long as the- could provided they went to bed early enough. When sleep became impera-. tive, they should go to bed. The less one ate, however, the less one wanted to sleep, for, as Shakespeare had written, sleep was 'the chief nourish er in life's feast'; or, as the French put it, 'qui dort, dine.' Comfort. Sleep should be quiet, sound, and undisturbed. When darkness fell animals wanted to sleep, whereas hu mans often went to night cluba. Quiet, darkness, warmth, and a com fortable bed were the requisites for sleep, and the la...
SWIMMING TO WORK ENERGY NOT ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 9 January 1929
SWIMMING TO WORK ENERGY NOT ENOUGH. Because he had been refused a job j on the ground that he wits ' ' too old at ; sixty,' a middle-aged American of j sixty-two has just swum six times ac- J ross the Ohio River and wound up this ; performance with a little sprint oi j twelve miles down-stream. And if . the English Channel had been a littlo \ nearer he would perhaps have crossed j that, too, under his own power and as proof that three-seore years is no evl- ; dence of impaired activity. Unf or. '. tunately, the available accounts of his i exploit do not say what sort of job he j wanted; we are only told that while j he swam to and fro on his back over j the broad bosom of the Ohio he held t 'a newspaper above the water in one j hand and .handkerchief in the oilier,' j a feat which, after all, cannot be very ; ofteu required in the strict course of i commercial or professional life. ! As far as the Ohio is concerned the performer is certainly right in the swim of things, but witn rue...

Luff, lecturing to the Liverpool section of the Society of Chemical Industries at Liverpool Uni versity, on 'The Rubber Industry,' showed by slides the manner of ob taining rubber from latex, and explain ed that when it was at first desired to introduce plantation rubber, as dis tinct from the wild variety, Sir ITfiiry Wickham, who died quite recently, w,ent up the Amazon and collected 70,000 seeds. The problem was to get them home. The difficulty was how ever overcome and from that day the industry had. developed by leaps and bounds, but notwithstanding thc ad vantages of plantation cultivation they had never quite equalled the wild Brazil rubber. ?'- The name rubber was bestowed on account of the discovery by Ptiestley that it enjoyed superiority over bread crumbs for rubbing out pencil marks from paper.
