FOR THE CHILDREN. The Story of a Seagull PART I. [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 2 September 1927
ly^f^lTHE CHHJMtEN. ? The Story of a Seagull PART L It was a young seagull. It had not learnt to fly, and seagulls need to fly -very well, for often they have to go many miles without a rest when they are out at sea. There was very stormy weather the year this seagull and his brothers and sisters were hatched. And sometimes the father and mother sea gulls were frightened to let them try to fly, for fear they should be beaten down by the wind, and not have strength to rise again. It is quite different from little land birds learning to fly, They can flut ter from one twig to another near the ground, so that, if they do fall, they will not be much hurt Seagulls . need to have brave hearts when they are quite little. TMb seagull was very brave — al- most too brave. He loved the sea so : dearly that, while he was still a nest ling, he peeped out from his home, high up on a ledge of' rock, at the dancing waves below, and he longed to be among them. He would scarcely 'believe his mother -...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 2 September 1927
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — I notice in your issue of Au gust 12 a statement made by Mr. H. G. Darling before the Secondary Indus tries Commission. He is reported as saying that ' a West Coast mill would never pay on account of the trouble of getting rid of the offal.' Evidently some people go before a commission to give evidence on something about which they are absolutely in the dark. I can well understand the large city mills not being desirous of seeing a mill established on our coast as they are naturally anxious to see the goods go forward from the main centres. During my 20 years' experience in the milling business on Eyre Penin sula we have often found it absolute ly impossible to cope with the demand for offal, and have had to obtain sup plies- from the mainland, in addition to turning down' a lot of orders. I admit that at times, like other mills, we had our surplus, but more often than not we were pushed for mis par ticular line. We have on the West Coast some of the finest agr...
