TENINDEWA NOTES. December 27. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

TENINDEWA NOTES. ? ? (From Our Own Corresponded '* December -7. The farmers have nearly all finished harvesting an* the results are good judging by their pleasant dials. ^^A few stragglers havo to finsh yet; I suppose some must be last. The Bindu school held its Christmas Tree, -and it was a great success. About £20 was collected and every child re ceived a gift. The teacher and others worked hard and deserve credit. Large stacks of wheat are at Ten indewa and Indarra. The Railway De partment appear to have difficulty in supply trucks to shift it. I should think' it would pay to koep special trains running day and night at' 3d. per bushel freight, with no handling or sheetage. Apparently there is de lay in Geraldton discharging trucks.

Beach Road Northampton CONSTRUCTION PROBLEMS (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

Beach Road Northampton CONSTRUCTION PBOBUEMS (To the Editorjfe Sir, — I notice ^Northampton residents are anxious to open a new road to Three Mile Bay. Having had a good deal to do with the Beach Itoad, Grcenough, and abc the road via the Mouth *-f Bowes river to Three MjUc Bay, I suggest a road be surveyed along the old track to the cliffs. With Mr. Snowdon, then «hair uikin of Northampton Board, I once made an inspection of this route, and at that lime it was obviously the best, but it runs for almost the whole dis tance through heavy sand, with a bad bottom. The -material required could be got from both ends, viz., the Beach end, by using the limestone, and at the town end, by using the clay freni th-J flat near by. I take it that it wouU be a motor road, and if the proposition is considered to put in a ten feet roa-l by throwing the sand out to a depth of eight inches and filling ivith ? clay. Where, however, stone is used, it need not exceed four 'inches with a clay ! dressing....

MILLION CARS IN EIGHT MONTHS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

MILLION CARS IN EIGHT MONTHS The production of a million automo biles in loss than eight months is the remarkable achievement of the Chev rolet Motor Company, which in the first three quarters of 1928 has surpass ed its own record for the preceding twelve months. The record-making car was a stan dard coach model, finished in avenue green duco with tartan tan wheels, black beading and striping in gold. Following an informal cercmopy the millionth car rolled off the assembly line, and in an hour was on its way to a distant dealer. An idea can be grasped of the im mensity of the task of building 1,000, 000 cars in less than eight month*, when it is borne in 'mind that to achieve this record it was necessary that a Chevrolet be built approximately every ten seconds of every working day. Computing on the basis that there are 25 working days a month, it nicans that one million cars were built in a little more than 200 working days. The local dealer is W.A. Young Motors Ltd., Geraldton.

NEW YEAR'S DAY RACE [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

NEW YEAR'S DAT EACE A sweepstake race was convicted on New Year's Day, when seven competi tors faced the starter. The breeze tras declared light. Quest, on 5 min utes, was apparently backed both ways, as she was first away and first home, tone and Bitza conceded her 4J min utes, and the scratch mark was filled by Kowena, Salome, Co-Be and Gaiety. Spinnakers were set for the free worn to the viaduct, and the boats made a fast pa.sagc, although Quest, without I he aid of any extras, gave early pro mise of repeating- the hat-trick. Quest passed the timekeeper at 3.56.36, fol lowed by Gaiety, 4.0.11; Bitza, 4.1.5; ftovrena, 4.L13; Co-Re, 4.L48; lone, 4.1.58, and Salome, 4.2.12. In the nest round the backmarkers showed much improvement, particular ly Kowena, and the race at this stage promised to provide an interesting bat tle. Bowena dispensed 'with extras on the next journey to the viaduct, and Gaiety, realieing that a spinnaker was of little, if any, use, substituted- a ring tail. The...

BEAUTY IN GLASS WINDOWS AT YORK MINSTER [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

BEAUTY IN GLASS WINDOWS AT YOBK MINSTER The Rev. Dr. W. Foxlcy Norrifs, Doan of Westminster, and formerly Dean of York, describing the task still in pro gress of preserving the mediaeval stain ed glass windows of York Minster, says: 'People talk about the mellow ing effect of age. There is no such thing in the case of glass. I believe the old artists meant those beautiful windows to look for all time exactly as they did when they were put in cen turies ago. The so-called mellowing effect is simply sheer dirt, and no artist could have meant that to remain. 'What we did in York: — and it is still going on — was to take the papes out and carefully put them intp baths of slightly warm water, thus dis integrating the dirt of 600 years. There has never been any scraping at all, but only brushing with soft brushes. We have now done forty windows, and the task has been stupendous. 'The 'Five Sisters Window,' put in when the stone work was built in 1250, has lights over 53 feet in height, an...

A BIG BLAST 40,000 TOXS OF ROCK DISLODGED Wales has recently been the scene 'of the largest limestone quarry blast ever undertaken in the British Isles. After weeks of careful preparation in tha huge quarries at Colwyn Bay, three and a half tons of high explosive -were elec trically fired and 40,000 tons of stone stripped from a face of rock, 100 feet high. Thousands of spectators saw the blast, and while the expected roar was not as great as had been anticipated, the sight .of the huge mass of rocks ris ing and then- crashing down was one never to be forgotten. Quarry experts described the blast as a complete success.' As a result of it. there is now a smooth unbroken sur face in the quarry which will enable quarrying to be carried on for months under the most favorable conditions, and 'with' much less toil to the worker: than would otherwise have been the case. It required three months to prepare for the big blast. Sixteen shafts of an average depth of 110 feet were' bor ed in a s...
