MUST PRESERVE "CAMP COVE" [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 31 May 1950

A. King at last week's meeting of the Parramatta Historical So- ciety. Mr. King, a vice-president of the Society, and a member of the Council of the Royal Aus- tralian Historical Society, was referring to an article by Dr. Mackaness in a Sunday news- paper in which he suggested the development of Camp Cove, at which Governor Phillip made his first landing in Port Jack- son. "Many citizens, however, will disagree that the historic spot - of equal importance in Austra- lia's history to Kurnell, Captain Cook's landing place in Botany Bay - should not be "developed" by means of motor roads, con- crete or brick buildings and such like "amenities," which would destroy the natural at- tractions of a beautiful harbour bay," said Mr. King.

ROUNDABOUT [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 7 June 1950

EXTRACT from a billet doux written by a wrathfu!? ratepayer, and read at last week's meeting of Baulkham Hills Shire Council. Raged he: "What right have the Shire Council to be a receiving house for skumk complaints which its officers act upon while conceal ing the name of the skunk, thus making the skunk eomplaint an nonymous? "Is it the job of the Shire to sit in the office waiting for skunk complaints?" Proper stinker, what? Y EA verily, brother, a kind heart can beat even below the stony surface of a Fezpleez. Like on the other day, at Gran-. ville, when a- grubby specimen of the child life of: this com munity. hopped aboard a double decker, furtively followed-by his. pooch, of ancestry untraceable. Now it is the well-known Winsor edict that even the bluest of blue-blooded hounds (four footed) shall rnot travel aboard his luggers. Thus the frantic scurry of the grubby specimen to .. the poop, deck, under the glassy stare of the Fezpleez.. But, as I said in the beginning, brother...
