Tasmania's Menace JOBS IN JEOPARDY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
Tasmania's Menace JOBS IN JEOPARDY. 'These times' is a phrase that has become rather hackneyed, and yet every now and then, we run' up against something which is peculiar to 'these times.' A case in point is the ruthless invasion of Tasmania and Tasmanian markets by mainland manufacturers, huge organisations with unlimited * . capital, whose .one desire is to extend their operation at any cost and' spread - their octopus like tentacles over our fair island. Particularly now must we call a -halt and consider the ultimate influence of this sort of thing when it becomes A MENACE TO OUR JOBS. On turning this problem over in our minds, the thing that first strikes i us is not simply that money paid j for such, articles goes directly out of the. State, but that repercussions go ! right through the whole of our social i structures. It becomes plain to all that wheri we buy an imported ar ticle instead of the locally produced one, we dam up a. flood of local pro duction to our own detriment...

It was then' printed1 from type. To day it is printed from linotype slugs., aiiu uiit; wiiuiu ax cue original ijiuiil has beem entirely replaced by more modern machinery and equipment. The aim of the 'Times' has been to advocate the best interests of the fruitgrower and other primai-y pro ducers, and' to publish country news that does not come within the scope of the daily press. In these direc tions we claim to have attained no small measure of success, and re cognising the usefulness of a coun try newspaper, we have been re peatedly asked, to extend our opera tions to the Derwent Valley district. As. the industrial conditions of the' Huon and Derwent Valley are very similar, the proposition appealed to us, and after some preliminary ne gotiations with leading residents of New Norfolk, we...

In wishing councillors, officials, and the press ? representatives the compliments of . the season when closing the meeting of the Huon Municipal Council last - Monday, Warden G. C. Frankcomb said that like the fruitgrowers, he would be 'glad to see the back of 1933.' It has been a disastrous year, : he added, for the apple growers, and few outside the districts conccrned knew, nov apparently di.d they care, how hard' the conditions had been, but no good purpose would be served by dwelling on that aspect. , There were signs, he hoped, ' would 'ma terialise, that 1934 was going5 to see an improvement. In any c. case there would have to be some change for the better in the position of the fruit industry, or an all-round crisis would occur.
