Two teams were selected -a Flrst and Second team. The, Seconds played 'the first match conimienchiig at 1.30 and'iIllawarra, chiefly due to the., efforts of Ron Rowles, who scored 30 of his teams 36 points, had a fairly. easy win.

FIRELESS HEAT FOR ROOMS [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 2 July 1947

FIRELESS HEAT FOR ROOMS Heating without fuel and there fore without the need for furnace, flue or chimney, is more than a p)romise for the future. A few houses in Indiana, where the revolu tionary heat pump has been made, were heated this way during the past winter, says Harland Manches ter, describing the new method in The Reader's Digest for July. The article, condensed from Scien tific American, says the idea is an old one, first developed 95 years ago and at last put to practical work. In effect, the heat pump is an elec tric refrigerator running backward. "Your refrigerator cools food by pumping the heat out of the box and throwing it away. The heat pump collects heat from the outside and pumps it into the house. Even in the dead of winter there is 'hhat in the outside air, in the ground, and in the.water in wells and streams." The heat pump becomes a coolei' in warm weather, the article says, with the thermostat set at 72 de grees, that temperature will be main tained all year...

Aris totle, the Greek .philisopher, warned Alexainder the Great against ' this disease. "Boil your water anld bury your dung" he' advised. However1 there is good reason to believe that the mighty Alexander , was himself conquerd by typhoid.' For. centuries, other. gheieals 1neglected Aristotle's warning and typhoid scored spec tacular' victories, . In couintries so widely scattered as France, Cuba and South Africa, this ty-borne disease slew; mpre men than shells , and bullets. During the Franco-Prussian war, 60 per cent of the German casualities were caused by typhoid. in Cuba, it killed more Americans than 'the Spaniards did.

"SEEING RED" IS MORE THAN A PHRASE [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 2 July 1947

"SEEING RED" IS MORE THAN A PHRASE Girls in a mid-west factory felt cold although room temperature was kept.at a~ steady 72 'degrees. When the blhe-green walls were painted coral red no more complaints of cold were heard. That is one of many instances of the workings of the new science, "color engineering," as told by Lloyd Stouffer in The Reader's Digest for July, His art icle is condensed from Popular Science Monthly. Take weight, says Stouffei. Men had "strained backs," in another plant, from lifting black boxes lled with briar pipes. One week-end the boxes were, painted .pale green. On Monday morning several men com mented on "what a difference these new light-weight boxes make." Longchamps Restaurant customers l!ngered too long over their food. The walls were gray-green then. Now the walls are "a striking red and yellow" and customer turnover i', speeded appreciably. In industry, production' increases have been noted in "color-condition ed" plants.
