XMAS IN THE SHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

XMAS IN THE SHOPS. All the shops have made sprcial preparations for the Xmas trade, and their windows are very attrac tive. Readers are advised to read the advertisements in "The Biz" Newspaper before making their pur chases-we believe they have "the goods at the price." There is no nood to spend money in travelling, to do shopping, judging by the prices quoted. The business fraternity are to be complimented on the excellent display.

Business Management To the Editor of "Biz." [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

Business Management To the Editor of "Biz." Sir,-May I beg space in your val uable paper to offer a little comment on the statements made at the social gathering of the new council as pub lished in your issue of December 8, one of which refers, in effect, to the bad business management of the aldermen. If the treatment we have had at the hands of the last few coun cils is anything to go by, they cer tainly do not deserve the accusation. As a result of their activities we have received two summonses, one over the electric light (which we never had at the time and are still without) the other for water main extension for four blocks of land, two of which have no water. Now, I think all will agree that the business manager who can force his clients to pay for something they did not ask for, nor receive, without even a promise that the goods will be deliv ered in the sweet bye-and-bye, lacks nothing on the score of business ability. The statement that the council is owed £5000 was a bom...

Mayoral Minutes Road Expenditure. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

Mayoral Minutes The following minutes were sub mitted by Mayor Clancy at last week's meeting of Fairfield Council: Road Expenditure. Immediately following upon my appointment as Mayor, I took steps to find out the true position with re spcct to the voad loan expenditure. The cash book revealed to me that only £5694 of the loan remained un expended. I also. knew that the contract given to Sellen and Sellen was for a sum of £20,786/16/9. I also knew that Sellen and Sellen had not yet completed their work on Fair field-st,, Smithfield-st., or Canley road, and that the work proposed to be carried out in the Crescent had not been commenced. What I wished to know was the actual amount of money required to meet the council's commitments to the contractor under the contract. That information I have not been able to obtain. I know that the aldermen fvntinrr t0 fun"'?h statement illus ti ating the council's position in re lation to the work, and also in re lation to the loan, and while I am a...

RADIO FOR THE SOLOMONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

RADIO FOR THE SOLOMONS. Great interest is being taken in the test matches in the British Solo mon Islands (as doubtless in all other parts of the Pacific). A resi dent of Gavutu has written to the Sydney broadcasting station 2 B L stating that unfortunately the des criptions of the matches in play are spoiled so far as listeners in the Islands are concerned owing to summer static. He asks for a de tailed description of the day's play to be given each evening during the late news session. This is being done, and no doubt not only in the Solomon Islands, but in many- other distant places the service is greatly appreciated

LISTENERS PREFER MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

LISTENERS PREFER MEN. There seems to be no doubt that moat radio listeners prefer men's voices to women's-at least for broadcasting. This question crops up occasionally and almost invari ably the expressions of opinion arc as indicated. A woman at Leura wrote to station 2FC this week re marking in the course of a long let ter: "For goodness sake don't have women announcers. Your men are good, but if we have to listen to women I think I'll give up my radio set. I must not say what I really think' about the darlings, as I am sure you would be shocked." The writer is far from being a growler in regard to broadcasting programmes. She states that she was surprised to learn what enormous sums were spent to entertain listeners, but whatever the company paid for the broadcasts of the Grand Opera Com pany, she thinks, the money was well spent.

THREE MONTHS AHEAD. LISTENER WANTS FORECAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

THREE MONTHS AHEAD. LISTENER WANTS FORECAST. One of the most popular and cer tainly one of the most useful ser vices rendered by the broadcasting stations in Australia is the weather forecast which is radiated both morn ing and evening and is particularly valued by farmers and others inter ested in rural pursuits. - Many radio listeners have thanked the Sydney stations for broadcasting weather forecasts, and this week a listener at Muttania wrote to ask the manager .of station 2 F C, Sydney if he would be so kind as to obtain a forecast three months ahead and broadcast it. The listener is very much in earnest and he offers to pay for the information if there is any charge. The broadcasting company was somewhat at a loss to deal with the . subject, as the weather forecasts are only for a day or two ahead. They are prepared to give forcasts a month-, three months, or a year ahead if the Government Meteorologist would take the re sponsibility, but in the meanwhile they have to be conte...

COULDN'T SEE CRICKET [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

COULDN'T SEE CRICKET An indication of the part played by radio in disseminating news of the test matches is' given by the ex perience of a number of cricketing enthusiasts. An English visitor, Mr H. R. Ruthven, in a letter to the N.S.W. Broadcasting Company stated: "An unfortunate accident prevented my going to Brisbane to see the first test match. I was confined to my room at my hotel, but being the pos sessor of a portable wireless set, I was determined to hear the scores. To my surprise, however,11 received much more than the bare, scores, for from time to time a progressive des cription of the day's play was con veyed to me over the air." Among others who listened in ow ing to being prevented by illness from attending the first test were Kelleway and Gregory (players) and the veteran Warwick Arm strong.
