Diggers' Fight to Repatriate Themselves. WEAVING OF ANZAC TWEED TO BE CARRIED ON. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 14 February 1925

Diggers' Fight to Repatriate Themselves. WEAVING OF ANZAC TWEED TO BE CARRIED ON. When the work of repatriation was begun by the Victorian State AVar Council in 1916, returned disabled sol diers were instructed in the art of handweaving. Looms were built and yarn was procured from" the Com monwealth Woollen Mills. Geelong. In a few months the soldiers be came expert weavers, and the quality of their work was such that the tweeds produced by them had a read} sale at good prices. These were the first of the Anzac tweeds, which, have since become famous throughout Aus tralia and are not unknown abroad. When the work of repatriation was taken over by the Commonwealth De partment ot Repatriation, it was thought that .hand weaving would not 1 survive competition with the power i looms aiid an attempt was made to ! close down the industry. I A strenuous campaign, however, re sulted in the soldier weavers being allowed to go on under the control of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers' Imperia...

Clutchless Motor Gar. A new type o£ gearing wlucli, if it comes through its road trials success fully, will make gear-changing : of motor car ami motor cycles a very simple matter, has lieen invented by a young motor engineer, Mr. Cameron Cowburn, of Chnrchdown, Gloucester (says the motoring correspondent of the London "Daily -Mail'). It is certainly the most promising motor invention I have tested during 'the last twelve months. With its aid, gear-changing can he fitted to a motor-car, but I Iiad'a. trial run on a motor-cycle and sidecar out fit eauipped with it, and the result was surprising. * . On tlie handle-bar"Hvas a dial with the number of the gear, 1, 2, 3, marked on its face, and a position also for neutral. To change gear, all that was necessary was to move the lever on the dial opposite the required' num ber. The engine was started, the lever in the neutral position.

STONE QUARRY. (From our correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 21 February 1925

fK STOj^E QUARRY. (From our correspondent.) i—.v.Farm and .Dairy Notes.—Thresh ' iug is now in full swing and very good , yields are resulting. Mr. Geo. Wliite . threshed. up a very fine sample of . white oats, said to be the best seen . here for many years. ■ Late frosts have been responsible for very low wheat yields. - Potato crops look particularly well, but ow ing to the continuance o£ damp misty, weather fears of Irish blight are en tertained. Grass is wonderfully good every:' . where.' Owing to the many showers it is quite fresh and green. On present appearances it-looks as i£ oats and chaff will be unsaleable -as all-crops were good this season, and quite a lot of hay lias been car ried over from last season. Dairymen are having a good season as regards cream, etc., but the price is rather. too low. The local con sumption of butter is not great and this forces a large amount of Taralga butter _on the oversea market, but It is confidently hoped that the fine quality of the lo...

'Make It Illegal." SCOTT-FELL ON PRE-SELEC TION. PROGRESSIVES SET WORTHY EX AMPLE. (It must be clearly understood that the views expressed in the following article aro not necessarily endorsed by this paper.) (BY M. DIXON.) The iniquitous practice adopted by the Nationalist and Labor parties of preselecting their candidates for Parliament has been frequently and forcibly condemned by those who see in it the germ of political dishonesty. From the very outset the Progres sives took up a stroug stand on the question and followed up their con demnation of its use by other parties by absolutely forbidding its use in their own organisation. . There is 110 such thing as pre selection practised by the Progres-; . sive party. It encourages all" country electors to link up with • the organisation, and is anxious., that every reputable man who - lias the interests of the movement • at heart and looks like putting • up a decent fight should offer his services, to tlie electors..
