WOMBEYAN. (From Our Correspondent). RESIGNATION.

The accommodation house will now be run under the control of the Gov ernment Tourist Bureau.

The Gunning showground is pretti ly situaieu risut in lue neart 01 tue town, it is euhanoed uy a weaitn 01 ueautii'ul shade trees that matte it an attractive rendezvous tor picKnic Kers. The weather was in every way agreeable but for the dust from the ring following and during the pro gress o£ the various events. The pavilion exhibits were not very good, but it must be remembered that Gunning is not a producing cen tre; their activities are devoted more or less to stieep raising and grazing. Mr. Nat Churchill's Fixaline an nexed the trotting event after a good race which was fought out gamely. There was a very large attendance from the Crookwell district. The catering on the ground was adequate, but the exorbitant prices charged by vendors were almost pro hibitive. We do not know whether the show committee have any jurisdic tion over the regulation of charges. Water at two shillings a can is, we think, a bit over the fence, and...
BOWLING ROUND THE WICKET. L.B.W. DECISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 7 March 1925
BOWLING ROUND^THE WICKET. L.B.W. DECISIONS. In view of the many disputed leg before wicket .decisions in cricket, the following is interesting:— There is an impression abroad that a right-handed bowler bowling round the wicket cannot get an l.b.w. de I cislon unless the ball is pitched right j up or breaks back. .That is not: so. 1 Three strings . stretched from stumps ' to stumpB show that a comparatively short ball pitched on the leg peg will i hit the off stump. As a matter of | fact a ball pitched 10ft. 7in from the wicket may hit the off. stump.; Of course a bowler bowling well out from the stumps at his own end would need to pitch further up; es pecially if he. is aJxoutid-a'rrii bowler, but if he bowls close into the peg 10 ft. 7 in. would do it. Of course, the difficulty is for the . umpire toi judge 'the spot at which the Ball pitches if it happens to be a short one and it's not an easy matter to decide if "a ball is pitched on the leg stump" if It - be a short ball. Hence ...

NOXIOUS WEEDS. A NOVEL, CASE. SOLICITOR FOR AND AGAINST. When the case of Murrungal Sliire Council v. H. E. Tompkins /was called recently at the Cowra Police Court, Mr. Montgomerie, who had been in structed to appear for both parties —who did not appear—did not hear the case called, and consequently it was struck out.

Mr. Montgomery: No, Your Wor ship. S.M.: He is fined 40/ and 5/G Court costs.—Cowra "Free Press."

ECONOMIES. RUNNING INTO MILLIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 7 March 1925
ECONOMIES. RUNNING INTO MILLIONS. The Premier, Sir George Fuller, estimates that since the present Na tional-Coalition Government came into office there have been savings to the people in direct and indirect taxation, as well as by the preven tion of taxation contemplated by the preceding Socialist Government, tot alling over £9,000,000. "I have had a number of Depart mental returns made," said Sir George, "setting but the savings that have been made in various directions, and although the returns are not yet by any means complete, the items representing these savings amount to a very large sum of money. These economies have been brought about as the result of. instructions issued to heads of Departments as soon as the Government cairie into office, and by direct Ministerial action from time to time. "In a number of Departments up to-date accountancy methods have been installed, and in others they are now being introduced. Reorganisa tion in other departments, with the elimination o...

(Published by Arrangement.) UNDERMINING COLLEGE LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 7 March 1925
(Published by Arrangement.) UNDERMINING COLLEGE LIFE. One of the sinister effects of Pro hibition which is periodically stress ed by the United States press is brought to public attention again by the New York . "Herald-Tribune's" special correspondent at Boston. He telegraphed his paper a report issued by the Local Students Intercol legiate Committee on Students' Liv ing Conditions, In which an attack was made on drinking and iunse liv ing. The foremost suggestion of ihe Crm mittee was that college autunritieH should urge the Police Department to inflict more drastic punishment on offenders. . "It is a fact," says the report, "'liat some of the dances held ')>" some of the clubs and organisations of the colleges have been noticeable by il.e amount of drinking that has i;one cn by both men and women. .Under the stimulus of liquor many of the stud ents, both men and women, conduct themselves in a manner contrary to ideals. There is every temptation to Induce a student to go wrong ...
