WHY EASTER IS EARLY THIS YEAR [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 16 March 1951

WHY EASTER IS EARLY THIS YEAR If for no other reason, the year 1951 will be dis tinguished by at least one' thing. Its Easter Day— on March 25 — will -be the earliest observance of the holiday in the second half of the twentieth century. The world will have to wait for the year 200S to celebrate it earlier. That year it will be on March 23, according to computations at the Adler Planetarium and Astronomical Museum, Chicago. The last time it was on March 23 was in 1913. Although Easter has come to be associated with bunnies, col oured eggs and spring fashions, it is primarily a religious feast day. It commemorates the resur rection of Christ on the third day after Calvary. , As a religious feast it is gov^ e?ned by the ecclesiastical cal edar and is movable, unlike Christmas, which always falls on December 25. Easter can he as early as March 22 and as late as April 25, a variation of 35 days. The last time it was ou March 22 was in 1818. It next will be that early in 2285 It fell on ...

WOMEN SHOULD HAVE POLITICAL AFFAIRS CP. Candidates Suggestion At Gundagai Meeting A local women's branch of the Country Party was suggested at the annual meeting: of the Gundagai C.P. branch last week. The suggestion was put forward by Mr. W. M Ross, who is State candidate for Burrin juck Electorate. Mr. Ross said that he had got the. idea from the' Secre tary of the Liberal-Country Party League in South Australia where that party had been in power since 1932 It was sug gested that a great deal of the success is due to the efforts of the women's, auxiliaries.' Mr. Ross said that there should be women's branches all over N S.W., as the women have just as much voting power as the men. He suggested that the mat. ter be discussed with the women of the district, and action taken to form a wom en's branch here. Col.

...OVER THE HILLS There are thousands of happy families making their way with a smile along the highwayi of life; going forward confidently over the hills together, certain they can face whatever is in the valleys on the other side. Their happiness and confidence comes from the know ledge that their future is secure; that there is money in the bank to enable them to take advantage of opportunities or meet emergencies as they arise. If you are thinking of getting married, or if you have a family dependent on you now, you should open an account in the Commonwealth Savings Bank. Deposits made regu larly every payday will soon give you peace of mind and a feeling of security. Remember that money wasted now may deprive your loved ones of the things they will need later to make them happy.

VILLAGE ROAD IN BAD CONDITION [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 16 March 1951

VILLAGE ROAD IN BAD CONDITION The condition of the road at Frogmore is very poor at the moment. Corrugations are particularly bad in places and clouds of dust en. velop the unfortunate resi dents each time a car passes. A number of comments con cerning the road have been heard over the last week or so and many points have been rais ed. Frogmore has been declared a 1»..»1 i.*\ qwk) fnv mmiir V09TK UUll U^ CLINCH J.^± iU**J.,y J ^,%m.~ w and so has a speed limit of 30 m.p.h., aud yet at that slow speed over the corrugations, a car (to say nought of its occu pants) must be weakened con siderably. The laying of an asphalt road in full or in part has been ex pected for some considerable time now, but as yet no appar-. ent movement has been made in this matter. Especially now that the Wol fram mine is to re-open,- the residents of the village consider that no delay shculd be enter tained in the construction of the necessary road.
