The Weather REPORT FOR DECEMBER. , The Weather Bureau reports, that the rainfall for December was over average - in parts of the- north-west arid south, but chiefly under-average elsewhere: ? ?. Deficiencies were con sider able in the Midlands, Derwent Valley and West Coast divisions, and in the Huon district, and totals, were the lowest for 35 years at a few stations which escaped the ,ab- . normally dry conditions of Decem ber, 1931. Mean temperatures were 1 or 2 degrees above the average at several, stations, particularly in the. west and , north, but about normal ? or slightly below in parts of the south-east quar ter arid north-west. ' ? The intervals of . rather dry . weather over' most of the State does not appear to have affected ciops ? as much as' might have been ex pected. A ? good rain' is, however; , required for pastures as well as for ' . , fruit, potatoes, etc. . . ? ^ Rainfall at southern stations for the month was as follows: — New/' Norfolk, 37' points (average 20...

DOVER REGATTA AND PROGRESS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
DOVER REGATTA AND PRO GRESS. To the Editor. Sir, — Owing to there being no re gatta at Southport during the recent Christmas holidays, Dover provided a two days' aquatic ? carnival. The spectacular display of yacht racing on the second day was ,the finest in the history of ? the district, ' and the great number ,of craft that started in the big event, and the method in which they were handled was cer tainly unique. , - In the event ' of Soutnport not being able to provide a regatta next Christmas, it would be a good idea if the local body for Dover would again try and arrange the two days' events. Dover is more accessible than Southport, as ,we. are favored with a ?steamer'; ser vice, and a daily /bus service, and a little boosting in 'the form of the re gatta attractions should induce a greater influx of visitors^ and thus help the' district. ' If ,that -portion of the tBay View property at the inner end of the jetty could be ac quired by the council' it would- serve a two-fold pur...
Correspondence. FRANKLIN WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
Correspondence. FRANKLIN WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. . Sir, — The coming of the rain seems a suitable moment to realise the value of the Franklin ;water sup ply during the recent dry spell. Some of us have been thanking God- for the water supply, but even those who do not feel called to do this, mieht say 'Thank you' to those who were lesponsible for the carrying out of the water scheme. Doubtless there was opposition and criticism, but in this first season the supply has proved invaluable and, as one who would have been carting water long ago without it I would like to be one- to .say a public 'Thank you.' Pro bably there are many others.-^ Yours, etc., '' ' ? ' '. ' F. A. PLUMB. ' The Parsonage^ Franklin.

The Shell Company NEW MANAGER APPOINTED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
The Shell Company NEW MANAGER APPOINTED. Although a young man, Mr Ver-' non Smith, the new general man ager of the Shell Company for ^Aus tralia and New Zealand, has crowded into his years an exceptionally wide and vaiied experience in different parts of the world. Born in Eng land, he was educated in Paris and at Cambridge, where he held an open exhibition at St. John's- College arid took the degree of B.A. (first class honors). He left Cambridge to enlist in the Duke of Wellington's Regiment at, the outbreak . of war, transferring' two years later to the, Indian Ai-my. Mr Vernon Smith has a brilliant war record. ? In 1917 he was trans ferred to the Mesopotamian , Ex peditionary Force with the rank of captain, and was subsequently men tioned in despatches for ? gallantry and devotion to duty. ' In the third Afghanistan War he received the much-prized Kaiser-i-hind medal with- clasp. Association With Shell Company. On his return to England he joined the Shell Company, and his. overs...
Air Transport PROGRESS IN U.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
Air Transport PROGRESS IN U.S.A. - Aviation statistics show than, air-^ ciaft operating companies ' in the' United States have increased their income from passenger transport by about one-third during the four months, June-September. The- com panies give -as the reason for this, improved equpiment, renewed ac tivity m geneial business, and a gradual increase in- confidence on the' part of the public. The result has been a' battle for the. new business, comparable to that of the railways seveial decades ago. In the scramble' for passenger traffic, millions of dol lars have been spent on reequip ment. Fleets 'of aircraft have been disposed of t in' favor of faster ones. United ' -Air Lines are. about . to spend £823,000 on new aircraft.' The company has increased l its final order for 60 high speed Boeing air craft (fitted with 2 x Pratt and Whitney superchraged. Wasps of 550 h.p. each) to ^75.-' These ma-, chines will probably, cost between' £8000 and £9000 each. A new transcontinent...
INTERESTING FIGURES. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
INTERESTING FIGURES. ' ' '..-? To. the Editor. - Sir, — Statistics, often uninteresting to'-', the average man, occasionally prove arresting even to those who detest, figures. How members of nation gain their three meals a day and their', lodgment at night, must prove absorbing even /to the most careless. Fikures ? ? recentlv pre pared by a noted economist, Mr D. G. Cole, show that 31.2 per cent, of the, Australian population gain their livelihood in industry compared -with 39.7 per' cent, in Great Britain — -the most industrialised race in the world. The1' Commonwealth ; is, therefore, although a primary ' producing na tion, also an industrially t occupied -one; Agriculture — which, in Mr Cole's figures, includes grazing pursuits — and fishing, provide work for only 22.9 per cent, of Australians. This, no doubt, is'due to the ' intensely modern and productive methods of our farmers, as in no other country are there such huge areas- of crops as in the Commonwealth. A great deal of o...
CONCRETE ROADS AND UNEMPLOYMENT. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
CONCRETE ROADS AND UN EMPLOYMENT. To the Editor, Sir, — Mr W. H. . Morgan, . invites comment on his scheme for building concrete roads. I wish to commend him for it, for only by such a com1 prehensive scheme, . using, 'local ma terial' arid laboc, can we expect to make effective use ^of the, unem ployed. . '. isut wny snouia we asK tncpeopie to loan money to the Government for such a purpose? By' doing so we would not be creating additional money, or spending power, but trans ferring it from one , possible sourr-e of investment to another — possibly, robbing Peter of work to find work for Paul., What is; ' needed is ad ditional credit (or money for invest ment) quite .separate ? from and hr addition' to all that which is now in existence. . 'As Mr Morgan suggests 'money will be available,' just as it .is in war time.' But might I add that: the vital difference should be, that: such money shall be made available free of all interest and issued' to the people debt free, not to be with...
Fruit Grant PROCRASTINATION OF THE GOVERNMENT. HUON FRUITGROWERS' PLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
Fruit Grant PROCRASTINATION OF THE ,-. GOVERNMENT.. KUCN FRUITGROWERS' PLIGHT. When the Federal Government an nounced about -four months ago that they- were prepared to make available a sum of money to assist those apple ?and pear- growers -who had suffered heavy losses as the result of the 1933 overseas trade, there was a feeling of; relief not only-m the lanks oi -the orchardists, but. with storekeepers, ?merchants and the. suppliers of case material, for it was hoped that it would -again become possible for the ordinary trade relations to be le sumed. ' But one disappointment after ? another has followed ? the ? or iginal 'announcement until- the posi tion has now been reached at which many growers ? feel they- are down and *out. ? ' In- the first.place .,the amount of money that was made available ? by the .Federal .Government is .alto-' gethei inadequate, for .the purpose of enabling .hundreds of growers to get sufficient credit to harvest the com ing crop. These men have reach...
THE CATERPILLARS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
THE CATERPILLARS. The welcome fall of rain last Tues day. has done much to check the ; caterpillars, which have done much damage in the Tyehna and Fitz gerald districts, and were, threaten ing to reach Bushy Park, the most valuable area 'from a crop production nni-rH: n-f iriow in fVio Vallou flaii^r farmers have been, having a most anxious time finding fodder for their cattle, as the1 pest has literally swept paddocks clean of vegetation, as it moved across them in mass for mation. The grubs were especially destructive at Messrs Brock Bros., Lawrenny... estate, Ouse.
