Davres said he. was surprised- to learn that 'the man in the street' had been criticising the manner in which the pavilion, on the recreation ground had been paid for. He did not know what the- suggestions were — whether it was thought the money had been frittered away, or that someone had got away with it — but the accounts had been laid on- the table twelve months ago, and could have been inspected by anyone in-, terested.; He therefore desired to formally read the complete state ment, which showed that the amount raised, by the Queen Carnival, with interest at the Savings Bank, amounted to £547 15s 7d.

Growers' space bookings total 620,000 cases apples and 28,000 cases pears, but over one hundred growers have so far not made application. In spite of ail exceptionally long spell of dry weather, trees are looking remark ably well. There seems to be more black spot about this year than for ? seve...

DERWENT VALLEY Social, Sporting, Industrial (By Special Correspondents) WASTAGE IN COOL STORES. From information received this wastage occurs every season, but to a varying degree; 1928-29 and 1931 1 32 were particularly bad years. Since' October, 1932, the ? main long I storage varieties have been affected Kfiv-evfilv. Fnrtnnatelv experience gained in England enabled Mr Came to diagnose the main trouble as low temperature breakdown. Varieties such as Sturmer and French. Crab, were severely affected, others, such as Democrat, developed deep scald, the two diseases being related to storage at temperatures too low for safety.

Fruit News VICTORIAN FRUIT PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 February 1934
Fruit News 1 VICTORIAN FRUIT PROSPECTS High temperature and northerly winds were1 experienced in most fruit-growing districts of Victoria last Week, and did considerable dam age. Temperatures of 105 and 106 deg. were registered in the Diamond Creek and Arthur's Creek districts, and, accompanied by strong winds, were responsible for a considerable drop of fruit, Williams pears being worst sufferers. In some instances some growers lost fully a third of their crops. A certain amount of sunrscalding also occurred, and a percentage of Jonathan apples were badly scalded. Summer spot is also much in evidence both in these dis tricts and the Momington Peninsula, and although growers have adopted remedied measures a large propor tion of the pear crops will be marred for marketing purposes. Experi riients are being conducted at Don caster with a third fungicidal spray, but. growers maintain that present economic conditions debar the ap plication of three fungicidal spravs. They are at present...

The need for co-ordinated effort between the -exporters of primary produce from Australia and Tas mania to the British and Continental markets, has frequently been re ferred to m these columns, especially in regard to the fruit trade. That the subject is receiving serious con sideration is shown by the following reference made to it by the Mel bourne 'Heralcl' last week: — 'There is good reason to consider that the Australian overseas ship ping service, both- jn speed and in co-ordination, is not all. that it might be, and that there are lessons which can be profitably learned from the rest. of the world where modern de velopments in sea transport have been of great and increasing benefit to producers. 'By competent authorities Aus tralia's loss in English markets be cause of time- factors in the shipping services is estimated at hundreds of thousands of pounds a year.

VICTORIAN POTATOES TO COM PETE WITH TASMANIAN, With another season of low prices confronting the potato industry, an organised scheme fox1 disposing of large quantities of Victorian pota toes on : the Sydney market is being prepared by a Melbpurne firm of I merchants. Hitherto the (Sydney market , has been almost - completely monopolised by Tasmanian potatoes, but it is proposed to introduce a new system of marketing- the Victorian product, and a company is being formed to put it into operation. The scheme, it is explained, is to pack -_and grade potatoes of high quality,; under a registered brandi in 14, 2.8 and 56 lb. bags, so that traders and housewives will be able to b|uy a standard article, without risk of waste. It is claimed that a similar scheme launched in -Queensland two years ago has been entirely suc cessful, ,i Fou-v hundred boxes of ? matches were found undamaged in the debris of a shop destroyed by fire at Bury St. Edqiunds (Eng.) .
