"THE WORST HIGHWAY" [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

'THE WORST HIGHWAY' The Main Roads Board is to be urged to construct a concrete surface on the Prince's Highway between Nowra and the Victorian border (says ' the Braidwood Dispatch'). At' a meeting of the Central South Coast Tourist Bureau it was stated that, though the coast south of Nowra was the only closely settled part of New South Wales without a railway, it was served by the worst highway in the State. When these people talk of bad. roads we wonder if they have any idea what a bad road really is. A trip over the Braidwood-Captain's Flat track would prove most educa tive, we think. This, however, is not a highway; in fact, we don't know what it is. At various times we have heard it classified by travellers who have managed to struggle over it, but these terms are rather too sulphuric and luridly descriptive to repeat here. Before vast sums of money are ex pended on works of the type proposed the Government would be far better advised to contribute more liberally to the provis...

"THE GREAT SPEEWAH" [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

'THE GREAT SPEEWAH' 'Bill the Rouseabout' writes: — Forty-six years ago this very month I landed a job as tar boy and rouse about at Werriwa. I humped 'bluey' from Doughboy to the Sandhills, where I donned the mocassins and slid alone the erreasv floor to the sharp command: 'Tar here and jump back!' After tea at the shearers' hut the new chums were regaled with stories of the bunyip of the far out back: — Out on the fringe of the Never Never, Out where the heat waves dance for ever, Out where the pigs for daylight root, And the pigeons fly with felted boots, Where they rise the sun with a golden bar, On the bunyip station of the great 'Speewah.'

FISH SCALES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

FISH SCALES (By 'John Dory'). There have been some futi. ) trips to the canal, both by car and launch, since Charlie Aldous caught a big jewi on Monday night last week, and Jack McArthur lost the biggest one in the river. This fish seems to be very active in its search for food these last few weeks, as it has been reported during that time at various and numerous places in the river. * ♦ * ? There nave been some very nne bream caught at the canal, indepen dent of Jack Campbell's fine catch at the recent anglers' outing; and while the slight fresh remains in the river there should be many more good catches recorded there. C. Bevan and Woods caught some nice bream at the mouth of Brough ton Creek. The latter landed two fair-size jewfish. while Cecil lost some of the same kind. The contributing cause of this, I think, was fishing too close to the lower side of the mouth of this creek, as the stones with sharp edges will settle the best of lines. So all intending anglers to this spot wa...

BOMADERRY [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

BOMADERRY (From Our Own Correspondent). There was quite a flutter in the township of Bomaderry when the Mayor of Berry called a meeting, which will go down in history as 'The Swamp Meeting,' to consider the petition from a number of residents re draining the swamp area at Boma derry and turning it into a park. It I was one of the biggest meetings ever held at Bomaderry. The Mayor stated that he had carefully gone over the ground during the day, and he was of opinion that ten thousand pounds would be required to make it into a playing area, and, of course, we would be responsible for half the money. The Mayor, Aid. Witchard, and Cou zens strongly advised the meeting to accept the park of 5k acres now be longing to Mr. McDonald, which could be purchased for two hundred pounds. * ? * * The Oddfellows often provide a very pleasant Saturday night with friendly games of 500 against non-members. These little social evenings are much appreciated, and are to be highly com mended. * * * ? The...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

It is a pity in a way that the De partment of Public Health, before launching its diphtheria immunisa tion scheme, did not initiate a pub licity campaign, in order that the | people as a whole might have been I jiiven an opportunity of learning .something of its significance and im portance. The method adopted of bringing the idea under the notice of .school teachers in the various locali ties, ' through the different local governing bodies, hardly goes for enough. The children cannot make their own decisions — nor would it be desirable that they should. School teachers throughout Shoalhaven have co-operated with the Councils in a most commendable manner, and the local governing authorities have, as far as possible, made the necessary arrangements. But in the absence of any definite and authentic knowledge of the benefits of immunisation many parents possibly will not be sufficiently interested to do their part. Everybody realises the seriousness of a diph theria epidemic, the morta...

PRESIDENT'S REPORT I ? u ? . ^ ' At the Clyde Shire Council meetmg, on Friday, the President -Cr. J.

It re6eives criticism for many of the things it does, and probably even more criticism for the multitude of the things left undone. I do not commence my report in this strain as an evidence that I greatly regret tne special aputude or the Britisher to criticise; on the contrary, it shows that, right or wrong, the people like to have their views ex pressed, and I trust that this live in terest in local government affairs will long continue. Every administrative body must be prepared to face adverse criticism. It is an accepted axiom that the 'looker on sees most of the game,' and so with local government. It must be borne in mind, however, that the angle of vision of the 'looker on' is quite at variance with the un fortunate who bears the responsibility. It is desired ...

COUNCIL SUBSIDISES SCHOOL OF ARTS [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

COUNCIL SUBSIDISES SCHOOL OF ARTS At the Cambpwarra Shire Council meeting, on Tuesday. Mr. L. W. Vance attended as a deputation from the School of Arts to ask for financial as sistance in regard to the payment of sanitary fees on the adoption of the service from the new year. Mr. Vance said the matter had been discussed privately, and the President and Clerk were acquainted with the facts. But the other councillors might not know the position, hence his presence. He said that the School of Arts had an overdraft of £225, and the committee experienced considerable difficulty in financing the institute. Under the old conditions the School of Arts paid 6/- a month, towards which the Council contributed £1 a I year; but under the new order it was I reckoned the charge for sanitary ser vices would be about 4/6 a week. That was more than the institute could meet. He explained the position as regards the conveniences on Osborne Park, and suggested that the School of Arts should contribute, ...
