PREVENTION OF SOIL EROSION BEGA FARMER'S SUCCESS [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

4 PREVENTION OF SOIL EROSION BEGA FARMER'S SUCCESS Mr. C. N. Squire, dairy farmer in the Bega district, after four years* experience with soil erosion control on his farm on hill land, dennitelv asserts that it is possible to prevent . water erosion on any land thai is not too steep to plough. Ten inches of rain fell in one night on one of his steep cultivated paddocks that had been contour banked, and there were no signs of washing. Discussing his experience in this connection at a recent gathering of farmers, Mr. Squire emphasised the importance of doing the work thoroughly. In the; case of contour ' furrows on grassland, he stated, the outlets must be kept clean, so that the run-off water could get away freely,, otherwise the rain water backed up in the furrows, eventually breaking over and undoing all the good work. He had obtained such good results on his farm that he was at a loss to understand why the recommended systems of soil erosion control were not more widely adopted. H...

MR. JAS. WATT [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

5!R. JAS. WATT After thirty years of continuous ser vice as a councillor of Clyde Shire, Cr. . James Watt, of Tomerong, has de cided to retire, and will not be a can didate at the forthcoming election. At the Shire Council meeting, on Friday, before proceeding with the i business, the President (Cr. John Boag) referred to this fact, and ex pressed his regrets at Cr. Watt's de cision. He said that Cr. Watt had a wonderful record, and one that he might well feel proud of. Men of his stamp, who had given their services free over a great number of years, and had borne the heat and burden of the pioneering days of local government, were rare, and were deserving of the best thanks of the community. Cr. Watt had always done his best to ad vance the interests of the Shire, in the service of which he had a unique record. First nominated by the Gov ernment as one of the provisional councillors in 1906, he had become a candidate and was elected to the first Council in 1907, and had been a mem ...

Cullen, of Kanga roo Valley, in aid of the Shoalhaven District Ambulance, took place in the School of Arts on Wednesday night last, and proved to be one of the most ?? successful functions ever held there.

The winners in the euchre touma- ' ment were Mrs. Read and Mr. Neville. During the nine days previous to the function, a popular girl competi tion was carried out, which created a . good deal of interest, and raised quite a lot of cash. Obviously a good deal of quiet canvassing had been going; on, for the result surprised even the most sanguine. At the final counting of votes (at 3d each), Mr. J. Butler announced the result, as follows: — Miss Hazel Schadel, £7/17/6; Mi...

The Garden HERBACEOUS BORDERS [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

The. . Garden I (By Our Special Gardening Expert). I HERBACEOUS BORDERS There is something intriguing about the way the little offsets make their appearance around the base of an Herbaceous plant, after .it finishes flowering and has been cut back. One of the crowns, when divided, provides many young plants; and great is the foretaste of pleasure ?i head as we do the separating of old plants and look out for convenient places in which to plant the increase. As this operation is usually performed in winter and early spring, before warm weather arrives, we rather en joy doing the job of manuring and digging so necessary to give the young plants a good send-off in their new quarters. The herbaceous borders of old Eng land and the Continent are famous — and have been so for ages. In Aus tralia there is much room for im provement, although in some parts herbaceous perennials are used to liood purpose, and create the out standing features in many gardens. Particularly is this the case whe...

THE DAY OF REMEMBRANCE [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

THE DAY OF REMEMBRANCE Speaking to the returned men, at the memorial gates, on Armistice night, Captain U. K. Walsh said he had a few words to say in that solemn atmosphere before moving down to the Diggers' Hall. He asked them to look on the memorial, and to imagine that the spirits of their departed comrades were in communion with them. Was it well that a multitude should have fought, and many should have died, or had their death been a vain thing? Was Armistice Day nine teen years ago the dawn of a new day, the beginning of a new era for humanity, of goodwill among men? In the light of present day events, how shall we answer? Armistice Day was one of rementbrance. A new generation had come along, and could not be. expected to re-live the experi ences of their , fathers. Our annual day of commemoration must be saved from becoming a mere mechanical performance— sentiment might be come sentimentalism. Let them re gard their, annual Armistice com memoration as part of a crusade again...

In the Days When Our Beards Were Black [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

In the Days When Oar Beards Were Black (BY 'FREELANCE'). The fields don't seem to be as big, the grass to grow as high. Nor trees and flowers the same to us, as in the days Rone by; The sands are not as golden now, or caves so gaunt and grim, Nor ocean's round of mighty sound, so great and grand a hymn. — Henry Price.

For a lot of us, yes! /ind to-day, when we are head ing for 'The Last Round Up.' we can Iiiok back over Ihe long lost years through the mists of time and for a little whiisjfcpull aside memory's cur tain, and let the pleasures of our youth echo once more down through inn corridors of t'imc. This little sketch may not interest the youth of to-day, but it may strike a sympathetic chord in the hearts of those men and women who have lived their lives and loved their loves.

REM&ISCENCES (By 'Old-Timer'). To about 90 per cent, of the cricketers playing the game in Shoal- \ haven to-day, the men mentioned in | your 'Thirty years ago' column re- ] present little more than a name; but ; to the other 10 per cent, the scores \ bring happy memories. It is my in- j tention to remind the old hands of i the achievements of their mates of i 30 years ago, and also l?t the young players of to-day know who were the stars and why, , in days gone by. At least one of the old brigade will come in for a 'once over' each issue dur ing the season. Before we commence on the players, a few comments on the fashions and just how players earned their cricket in those days will not be out of place. A cricketer who wanted to be one of Alex Bannerman's disciples and at least look like a 'cricketer came on the field dressed something like this: His shoes were invariably Champions, purchased anywhere at a cost of 4/6. The trousers were generally .white duck, and cost about t...
