HUON REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
HUON REGATTA. Last evening the sailing committee of the Huon Regatta Association met at the Royal Yacht Club to consider protests that were entered in con nection1 with D Class and A Class yacht races. Mr Smith, 'helmsman' of the Nymph, protested against the prize going to Sprite, as that vessel and two others rounded the wrong buoy iii. the lower end of the course. Evidence was given to show that the white flag buoy had tilted flat on the surface of the water owing to the tide and not being properly weighted. It was therefore not easily visible at a distance, and some of the helmsmen not being able to find it, asked the other to go round the red and yellow flag buoy, the distance being ap proximately the same. Some of the yachts agreed to do this, and rounded if'. Henco the protest. The committee held that as the flag was not above water it ceased to be n mark for the course, and the race should iherefore be declared off. The date of the re-sail was . sug gested as Hobart Cup Day. ...

Ltd., who have established a reputation for securing agencies for the latest mechanical devices for cultivating the land and pieparing crops 'for the market, are now receiving orders for Cutler Fruit Graders, for which they hold the distributing rights for Tas mania.

IMPOSSIBLE FRUIT LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
IMPOSSIBLE FRUIT LEGISLA TION. The' hopeless tangle into, which thn government of the fruit industry of Australia has got is well illus trated1 by the result of the lecent conference of the Apple and Pear Export Council. This body, which is representative of ? all the States of the Commonwealth, is so constiT tuted' that a majority of its members can approve of . any motion brought, forward, but the result becomes negative unless that majority also constitutes a majority, of the two sections, which arc from many points of view, in conflict' with one another. It would be difficult to conceive a more, ridiculous position, and 'it goes a long way towards ex plaining how the fruit .industry has -rot into its' present muddle. ' In support of this statement we have only- to point out how a motion' and an amendment moved at the recent conference were both rejected through a conflict of opinion and in terests. On the . fruitgrowers' side two of their number voted with the shipping represent...

Current Topics PROVISION AGAINST ACCI DENTS. At last Monday's meeting of the Huon Municipal Council, Cr. D. E. ?Ryan drew attention to a recent sad tragedy by a child who lost his life through falling from the Glen Huon jetty, and suggested that if lifc savinEr annliances had been at hand the accident may have been averted. He ? considered it was the duty of the. council to make such provision. Inspector Stubbings said none of the jetties in the municipality were provided with boat hooks or life buoys. It was decided to provide boat hooks on each of the jetties im mediately.
ASSISTANCE TO ORCHARDISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
ASSISTANCE TO ORCHARDISTS. . Now that the forms' of application for assistance to orchardists from the Federal grant are being dis tributed, the 'conditions are open to criticism, and' we can only, cxpiess disappointment at the cumbersome and generally unsatisfactory manner by which it is proposed to arrive at i\ decision in making the allocations. The list of queries to be answered by applicants covers four . pages of foolscap, and1 is of a most inquisi torial nature, involving the giving of piivate information about the ap plicant's position that is absolutely uncalled for. The money was granted by the Federal Government to aecoup those growers who suffered1 losses by. shipping fruit to the overseas markets last 'season. ' .Any business man would have held therefore that the money made available as a set off against these losses would have been in proportion to the losses; but that is not the Government way of arriving at a decision. There are quite a lot of other considerations t...
