The Individual Effort A REMINDER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 27 January 1950

The Individual Effort By Regional Officer E. Taylor. A REMINDER. One tree will make a million match es. One match will destroy a million trees. "Douse" that cigarette butt, mis ter! And take care of your matches!! There are many ways in which the individual landholder can be educated on fire prevention. In doing so it would greatly relieve rural lire bri gades on days when fires are present and manpower and equipment are taxed to their utmost. Two great problems that present themselves during bush fires are water supply and manpower. It every landholder would make pre parations during the safeimonths of the year, rural fire brigades would face bad bush fire days with the as surance that manpower would not be used unnecessarily, and that meagre water supplies could be used to their fullest advantages in the saving of life and property. Planting for Safety. In many instances pine trees and cyprus hedges spell disaster to build ings and belongings. Too much stress cannot be laid on the...

ANOTHER BLACK FRIDAY? [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 27 January 1950

ANOTHER BLACK FRIDAY? "Black Friday," January 13, 1939. Do you remember it?--the climax to a series of disastrous bush fires, in which 72 lives were lost and property valued at £2,640,126 was destroyed. There are many who will never forget that (lay-those who lost kinfolk and homes. Since then Victoria has had little taste of disastrous bush fires. Any day from now on until generous gene ral rains are received, could easily be another "black" one, despite the fact that Victoria is better prepared than ever before the meet the bush fire menace. As the Chief Officer (Mr. C. A. Daw) points out, "Fire conditions are just as bad now as in 1939, and if all precautions are not taken Victoria may yet see bush fire history repeat

ALEXANDRA RACES. MOST SUCCESSFUL MEETING—GOOD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 27 January 1950

ALEXANDRA RACES. MOST SUCCESSFUL MEETING GOOD FIELDS. The Alexandra Race Club staged a most successful race meeting on Sat urday last; in fact, it could be safely said it was the best meeting held for many years. Entries topped the record, and fields were excellent, testimony to which was widely voiced, and the club had praise poured on it by the twenty bookmakers who operated. The club is to be complimented, too, on the way it is establishing appoint ments at the course. The nice judge's box recently erected brought forth high commendation. Another improve. ment was the painting of the rails around the track. The Golf Club House was used to advantage by the race club for carrying out administra tive duties and weighing out. The club extends thanks to the golf club for co-operation in this respect. Messrs. W. Sandiford (president of the race club), Les Webb (secretary). and Jack Pcnfold (treasurer) carried out their duties in a very able man ner. They were readily assisted by Mr. J....
