[?] NOW A REALITY Advantageous Situation AID FOR SWEDEN ALSO f'Mercurv' Service) ! LONDON. December 28. British and French aid for Finland is now | a reality. It is certain to assume impressive j proportions, states the special representative of the 'New York Times' in London. He adds that the Allies are expected to exploit the advant ageous situation which the resistance of the Finns has created. With the Russians unable to disengage themselves from the Finnish trap, Germany must surrender all hope of succour from Moscow. If the Russians can be kept occupied in the Arctic it ' will be equivalent to an extension of the Allied blockade of Germany's eastern frontier. The time has come, adds the cor respondent, to clarify the position of Sweden, which fears German interven tion if she openly sides with Finland. Diplomatic observers believe that the Allies will shortly guarantee effec tive aid for Sweden In the event of a German attack. Naturally this would imply a similar guarantee to ...

MIGRANT HUSBANDS FOR AUSTRALIAN GIRLS CANBERRA, Friday. The Department of the Interior, at the request of tho Federal Gov ernment, is conducting an investi gation to ascertain types of foreign migrants most acceptable to Aus tralian girls as husbands. The information will probably be used as a guide in shaping any post war migration schema which will aim at the rapid assimilation of migrants into the Australian community.

The investigation may later be extended to reveal statistics regarding racial unions of both Australian men and women with alien migrants. Information o...

As mentioned before, this can be done by giving the beds a good soak ing, ther. allowing the soil to dry out sufficiently to permit cultivation with hoe or cultivator, bringing the surface soil to a fairly fine tilth, but not so line as would be the case if surface cultivation was to be relied upon entirely to conserve moisture; in this instance, it would be advis able to lay a mulch of leaves, rotted animal manure, or some other me dium, on the surface between the plants.
