FISH FANCIES [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 23 March 1951
FISH FANCIES You may have wondered, sometimes, if it is really es sential to include fish in j your weekly menu. Is it really a 'brain food' as it is often thought? Will it help to develop superior intelli gence? Unfortunately there is no special food which feeds the brain alone. We must look for other reasons to find why fish is a good food. MEAT OR FISH For all practical purposes, fish and meat can be classed together. They are both pro tein foods which are essential for growth and the replacement cf worn tissues. That fs why one can quite readily be sub stituted for the other. Fish contains a little iron, but not so much as red meats. However, salt water fish can be j quite an important source of j iodine.

A Leaf is growing hanging on a nail in his office. He said prickly pear was hard to contrcl because it'was tough, grew fast aud could spread in so many different ways- A leaf or segment broken off a plant will grow anywhere. Every plant bears fruit filled with seeds. Birds and animals eat the fruit and drop the seed perhaps miles away where they start new growth.. ? Stock, particularly sheep, catch pieces in their wool or hair and carry it till it is brush ed off to grow again somewhere. Floods carry the plants down-, stream and infest hundreds of acres of river frontages prev iously free. This has happened on the Gwydir, Turon and Namoj River.
