He has made several trips to France by air recently, and when he wants to go anywhere in Great Britain in a hurry he goes by aeroplane. Not only Mr. Churchill, but several other high offi- cials have also become enthusiastic avi- ators. The results of the Tasmanian Univer- sity's ordinary examinations for d...
BOAT HARBOR MEMORIES [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919
BOAT HARBOR MEMORIES (By "Tasmanian.") &nbsp; On Boxing Day. I spent a few pleas- ant hours on the beach at Boat Har- bor. It was a pleasing picture to see some hundreds of boys, girls, and lit- tle children with their parents, guard- ians, and friends, all bent on enjoy- ment and making the most of the few hours' recreation—all that most could afford from a strenuous year. It is to be hoped this beautiful spot will be widely known, for to see it is to ap- preciate it. &nbsp; One thing I noticed on Boxing Day was the need to regulate the motor traffic. The road proper to the beach is fairly steep and narrow, with one especially sharp curve. I saw on this narrow road that some of the motor drivers expected the other vehicles to give way to them, and passed cars loaded with women and children, going down and coming back. On a road like this it is a most dangerous prac- tice, and it is sincerely to be hoped that some one will step in and help to regulate matters in this...

ULVERSTONE AND TOURISTS To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919
ULVERSTONE AND TOURISTS To the Editor. &nbsp; Sir, -Nature has been bounteous in her dealings with Ulverstone. River, hills, and ocean combine to make it &nbsp; one of the most attractive tourist re- sorts in Tasmania, and its hotels, es- pecially the leading ones, compare favorably with those on the mainland although the tariff is much lower. No wonder that visitors are charmed with the up-to-dateness of M 'Gowan's and Hiscutt's; still, they must not be expected, during their sojourn in the town, to sit down and be satisfied with beautifully-kept hotels. They will find &nbsp; their way to the beaches, parks, creeks, etc. and then commences the disillusionments. The seats on the &nbsp; beach are falling to pieces, and some of them are completely buried in the &nbsp; &nbsp; sand bathing boxes are filthy, as our progressive council has not appointed &nbsp; anyone to attend to them ; the fresh &nbsp; water showers are a jo...

Wawn's Wonder-Wool stops pain in influenza, bronchitis and chest attachs generally; in rheumatism, lumbago and sciatica; in headache, backache, and strains and pains. But keep it in the house.
