ENGINEER'S REPORT At last meeting of the Cambewarra Shire Council the Engineer (Mr. H. A. Leonard) submitted the following re port: — Berry Mountain Road. — The pro gress on the section of work is pro ceeding favorably. Instructions in regard to improving the curves by widening and super-elevating are be ing carried out, also brushing and clearing to improve visibility.

AT CROSS PURPOSES CHAPTER XXIX (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

AT CROSS PURPOSES k ? n ? r- CHAPTER XXIX (Continued). Up in her room, Maggie, not yet asleep, heard the noise; heard also Mart's raised voice. Hurriedly slip ping a dressing-gown over her night attire, she hurried down. When she opened the dining-room door a startling scene met her gaze; the fallen crockery and food; her husband standing with clenched hands near to her uncle, who was holding up one arm as though to ward off a blow. Both men, their faces white, turned to face her. She listened for a mo ment, but no sound came from above; she would have been horrified had the servants heard and witnessed this. But they were higher up in the house. She closed the door, and went to Old royd. 'What is the matter. Uncle Caleb? Has Mark — struck you?' 'Tell her that I have,' jeered Mark. 'You seem fond of lies to-night.' 'No, no, child,' Caleb said quickly. 'It was an accident,' 'But why are you quarrelling?' Her eyes, stormy, accusing, were turned now on Mark. He took up the chal lenge. ...

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

ROXY THEATRE The highly dramatic story of what] happened to a young man who bor rowed from the loan sharks in order; to bring vacation happiness to his little family— that's Columbia's expose of the loan-shark racket, 'I Promise to Pay,' which comes sto the Roxy Theatre next Monday and Tuesday. Here is a very fine picture, based on an excellent story, beautifully direct- j ed, and marked by artistic perform- ; ances by every memoer or tne capaoiu cast. Some of the* finest action pictures of wild horses in their native haunts ever caught by the motion picture camera form some of the high spots in Paramount's 'Forlorn River,' the action-crammed story of the West, which also comes to the Roxy Theatre on Monday and Tuesday next. These scenes, of which there are many, are calculated to satisfy the most rabid horse lover and to more than please the casual film-goer who is after novelty, action, and a robust storv. An excellent story, from the capable pen of Zane Grey, a competent cast of ...

OPEN COLUMN (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

OPEN COLUMN (To the Editor). Sir,— In your leading article of last week you state that Aid. AlfAldous has decided to retire from municipal politics. Many will share your regrets be cause of that retirement, and I would also like to draw public attention to the fact that the vote of Aid. Aldous was the decisive factor in the acquisi tion of the Flat Rock water suddIv. In that matter he demonstrated that he possessed a fine moral cour age by changing his opinion in the face of bitter enmity and unreason ing prejudice. It has, however, probably been a sufficient reward for him to realise that the vote he cast years before saved his home town and district from a water famine, and attendant miseries, last year. At this juncture experienced alder' men of his calibre are sadly needed: alsp a political 'fight' with Alf Is not treated as a personal quarrel; The mob says 'Good old Alf!' ,

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

CYCLING (By .'Malvern'). A bright, sunny morning Inst Sun day raised the hopes of the local cyclists so much that long ere the time apjiointed to leave, many of them were j-eady and itching to begin. Fortunately the two clubs decided to amalgamate, and soon there were over fifty riders on their way to Huskisson. The party rode leisurely along the main road to Falls Creek, but a little later left the highway and proceeded down inroutzn wooiannu, wneie uiu road degenerated into a sand track, necessitating some hard pushing. On arrival at Huskisson most of the cyclists had a swim to cool off. whilst others thought lunch a better idea. Afterwards games were played on the beach, and the cycle race between Bert Wilson and Mrs. Smith proved victorious for the latter, who showed a rare turn of speed. Norman Goodsell had the misfor tune to break a crank in his machine before departing, so a rope was pro cured and a spot of towing done on the way home by Bert Wilson. On the return trip some o...

FOR MEN Many men have the impression that a Savings Bank Account is suitr able only for women and children, and that it is neither convenient nor dignified enough for business men.

OPEN COLUMN VOTING REFORM FOR COUNCILS (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 17 November 1937

OPEN COLUMN VOTING REFORM FOR COUNCILS (To the Editor). Sir, — May I urge your readers, when considering candidates for municipal honors, to give special attention to the urgent necessity for a chance in the method of election of aldermen and shire councillors? The present system is giving very unfair, and in many cases grotesque, results; either only majorities are represented and very large minorities entirely unre presented, or, as is frequently the case, a minority of the electors have elected the aldermen. The present Minister for Local Gov ernment, against expert advice ten dered to him some time ago, succeed ed in introducing the discredited Senate-system of election for the Sydney City Council elections, and its unfair and entirely undemocratic re sults were at once apparent. The system of proportional repre sentation would ensure that municipal affairs would be managed by alder men elected by the most scientific and democratic system known. It would make certain that every ...
