HOT WEATHER HASTENS APRICOT HARVEST Expected to be in Full Swing in Few Days [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 24 December 1942

HOT WEATHER HASTENS (APRICOT HARVEST The- apricot harvest along the River is a week or so earlier than has 'been usual of recent years, the ripening of the fruit having been hastened by the very hot weather of last week and this. Most growers have commenced picking, and reports indicate that harvesting should be in full swing within the next few days. So far no shortage of labour is indicated, except insofar as there may be difficulty in obtaining sufficient ex perienced pickers.. ... From Mr. W. Klar (shed manager of the Renmark Fruit Growers Co operated Ltd.) it was learnt that Renmark growers have been "mov ing into" harvesting operations very quickly, and there was every indication that the holiday period would see them all full at it. Crops, as was indi cated earlier in the season, were prov ing to be decidedly patchy, some being good and others weil down on their average. From the labour aspect everything seemed to be going all right so far, he said, but if the hot weather con...

Gas Producers and Bush Fires Several .reports nave been received of cars fitted with producef gas equip ment starting bush fires. The need for proper control was demonstrated recently when a fire was started on the Duke's Highway near Tintinara from a gas producer on a car. The occupants were not aware that any-1 thing was wrong until the car stopped. They were surprised to see a chain of fires on tooth sides of the Toad, caused by the grate of the firebox falling out and spraying both sides of the road with hot coals. The precautions to be taken against bush fire .risks for gas producers are laid down in the . Bush FJres Amendment Act which ' oarne into force last summer.

Acute Shortage of Axe Handles [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 24 December 1942

Acute Shortage of Axe Handles Having two axes with broken handles I scoured the town for axe handles on Saturday, biit could not get any. The men be hind the counter met my request with a blank expression as though I was asking for petrol without ration tickets. in one place I was informed that they hoped to get some in after the war, and in other places they could give no Information as to when stocks would be available. Axe handles are a very vital necessity to growers who get their own dip wood and without them they can not carry on the normal drying work. Axe handles, such as they are, are made in Australia and might last you three smacks and might last you three days, but when you cannot even get these types of handles the possibility of getting dip wood becomes a serious prob lem. Murray Wholesale should be in a position to speak for the dried fruits industry in making application for the release of en ough handles to tide over the harvesting requirements, and this should be d...

While the tucker has improved a lot, we've had and are still having that much bully beef, that it will be some time after I p;et back before I'll be able to sight corned beef. We are able to buy a fair bit of tinned fruit from the canteen, so we have tinned fruit once a day. "We had pork sausages yesterday and did they go down in a big way.
